2a. Education
Libertarians support removing the barriers to choice and competition in education, allowing parents more flexibility in deciding where and how to educate their children. We would further seek to restore control over public schools (schooling) exclusively to the state level where it belongs,with an emphasis on local education boards.
Libertarians would seek to work on a nonpartisan education funding policy that would seek to provide the best and fairest use of our limited financial resources and eliminate waste and bureaucracy at state and local levels.

2b. No Child Left Behind Act
Libertarians would seek to repeal the 'No Child Left Behind Act' and/or repeal all federal mandates on public education that are unfunded. Libertarians would reinvest the 'NCLB' funds, that are currently used for incentive bonuses and the bureaucracy created to manage and enforce the program, into the 'under funded' public education system. All excess taxes collected should be returned to the people.
