VIA| Speaking with Fox News host Chris Wallace this weekend, 2016 GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump made a remarkable statement about what he planned for the Department of Education, if and when he becomes president.
“I may cut Department of Education,” Trump said. “I believe Common Core is a very bad thing. I believe that we should be — you know, educating our children from Iowa, from New Hampshire, from South Carolina, from California, from New York. I think that it should be local education.”
Many Americans agree, especially as the Department of Education has grown into a massive bureaucracy more focused on indoctrinating students in the Islamic faith and “white privilege” than in actually teaching them things that matter, like, say, literature and math.
Plus, getting rid of the Department of Education would give parents much more power over what their children learn.
However, whether Trump could get actually rid of Common Core, which is his apparent goal, remains to be seen.
As The Daily Caller reporter Blake Neff explained, “While Common Core is promoted indirectly by the Department of Education, it is still adopted individually by state governments, and the federal government does not control it.”
Still, it’s a very worthwhile goal to consider since many parents are fed-up with Common Core’s “one-size-fits-all” approach to education.
Frankly, education is much too important to be mass produced … and thankfully, most Americans, including Donald Trump, get this.
