Read about Dr. Veltmeyer's stand on education.
Hundreds of billions of dollars are spent annually at the local, state, and federal levels for education, yet our children continue to fall behind other nations. Many graduate from high school without basic skills and our college students enter the job market with crushing debts. The answer is not more spending, but giving parents and students more choices, like charter schools, vocational education, online universities, and freedom from federal and union mandates and controls. Let’s transfer control of our schools from Washington educrats to San Diego’s parents and teachers and reform our college loan system so it no longer serves as an indirect subsidy for unending tuition increases.
