Education

I, and our forefathers believe that all teaching is related to the basic assumptions about God and Man. Education as a whole, therefore, cannot be separated from religious faith and instruction in morality.

Our fathers recognized this and included the following educational mandate into the northwest ordinance:

Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.

The people of the state of Michigan understood the importance of this principle when the same mandate was inserted into our state constitution word for word. But they went even farther when the preamble to the constitution was written, (emphasize) “we the people of the state of Michigan, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of freedom, and earnestly desiring to secure these blessings undiminished to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution.”

The law of our creator assigns the primary authority and responsibility of educating children to their parents. I support the unimpeded right of parents to provide for the education of their children in the manner they deem best, including home, private or religious. I oppose all legislation from any level of government that would interfere with or restrict that liberty. I support equitable tax relief for families whose children do not attend public schools.

So that parents need not defy the law by refusing to send their children to schools of which they disapprove, compulsory attendance should be repealed.

All federal laws, such as the No Child Left Behind Act, which requires action and expenditure by the state, should be repealed. These acts are tacitly unfunded mandates since the government provides no funding for the required actions. The Attorney General of the state should file suit to require full funding of this act or have it declared to be in violation of the tenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Let’s face it, west Michigan is special.

Thank you for checking out my campaign website and taking the time to learn more about me and how I want to represent the good people of the 73rd District.

Why Run?  ...because I want to serve the people of our district and represent OUR shared values and OUR shared interests in Lansing.

I have been working hard to earn the support of the district.  I know that my perseverance, determination and commitment will resonate with the district and am hopeful that 2020 is OUR year.
