EMPOWER PARENTS, NOT DC BUREAUCRATS: NO COMMON CORE

Education should be a local issue, where parents can hold local school boards accountable – not federal education bureaucrats. In 2015, Nevada’s Legislative Commission voted 11-1 to implement Common Core math standards in Nevada schools – giving parents less say and effectively putting the Department of Education in charge of Nevada classrooms. As your Congressman, I will vote to end Common Core standards and put the entire Department of Education appropriation under the microscope. Those funds would be better spent at the local level.
