Cut taxes by the appropriate amount, let states either atx or manage their budgets to make up the shortfall.Originally posted by mikie
By reducing federal spending on schools so much, were you insinuating that states would take up what the fed budget stops, or are schools just going to suffer that amount? Did/do your children go to public or private school? Was it a good school?
Partially correct. You have to increase access to a quality education. I personally think vouchers, in some manner is the best method to allow those who wish to succeed to do so.I read the other day that the only proven way of reducing the poverty of minorities is by increasing the amount of education they get.
I don't agree with affirmative action for any private enterprise. If it is a government body with a past history of discrimination, then it may be appropriate (if tax dollars are used, all should have reasonably equal access.)Do you believe in Affirmative Action? (If you would give me more than a yes or no, I'd appreciate it. I'm still formulating my own thoughts on the topic, and that recent article swayed me to the pro-AA side.)
