In order to remain competitive and viable, America needs to focus on providing its youth with world-class education.

* School choice is central to ensuring the continuous improvement of educational institutions around the country.

* The role of the Department of Education should not be a political organization; rather it should be a small and professional body that focuses on data collection and acquiring best practices that show how schools around the country and the world have improved education. In the Roemer administration, the DoE would then provide this information to schools in the form of options, not requirements, to improve education in the United States.
