Taxpayers today are estimated to pay $120,000 on average per student from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Hardworking taxpayers should have more say in how that money is spent to best educate their children. There is no "one size fits all" solution for education, and Washington should not be in the business of trying to create one. No Child Left Behind has made it harder to educate students because it removed local control from communities. I believe that the decision making ability should be returned to the states to encourage localized reform. Giving parents the ability to choose safe and effective schools will encourage innovation and bring accountability to failing systems.
