Posted by   + Show Post

Whether it's education funding or school improvement, there are clear differences between the President's policies and Romney's proposals.  Find out how President Obama's policies help the middle class afford education and much more:

Agree.

Quoting mom2jessnky:

Obama's plans for education are better.

There are some things that shouldn't be cut and education is one of them!

It's sick he could cut something so important to our future!

Quoting mom_to_travis:

Thanks for sharing!  I agree that the choice is very clear.  romney/ryan
does not value education.  Apparently it's one of their favorite areas
to cut funding and oppose reform and aid.  President Obama clearly has
the best education plan and really puts his words into action, as
opposed to romney/ryan who SAY they value education and then illustrate
that by slashing funding and opposing reform, all while telling people
they should just borrow the money from their parents or work three
jobs.  The opportunity to get a quality education should not be limited
to the very wealthy.

Thank you for sharing this.

Quoting rebeccap128:

I am a former teacher and my husband is still in education and we have seen first hand how damaging Bush's education policies have been in schools. Obama and Sec. Duncan are still cleaning up the NCLB mess. Romney and Ryan clearly don't see education for all as a right. School choice is damaging to public schools, cutting off student loans will keep bright deserving students out of college~Here is a link from Education Week with some more information

No good, for sure.

Quoting arpazia:

I know, what good would it do?!




Quoting jbyrd898:

It would be a sad day if education funding is cut as suggested by Romney/Ryan.

Quoting SpiritedWitch:

Education is VITAL and should be the very LAST place cuts are made, not the first. Romney obviously doesn't want the American public to be educated.

I guess I'm the odd man out on this because I believe school choice is vital and that throwing money at the schools does not make them better.

Exactly! It is so important lay a good acedemic foundation for our kids from preK- High school, and it'is nearly impossible to get a decent job without some type of college degree now. Why would any sane person want to take that away?!
