BILL HAMMONS FOR UNITED STATES SENATE AND COLORADO
CPR VOTER GUIDE: EDUCATION
Do you think the federal government ceded too much power to the states in the Every Student Succeeds Act, which replaced No Child Left Behind? Why or why not?
Answer: In part, yes. Education is a local, if not private, matter, and a nationwide one-size-fits-all approach doesn't fit when it comes to education. That said, schools serving poor and minority students need to be held to a higher standard, and just as Civil Rights shouldn't be left to local authorities, a good primary and secondary education as a Civil Right shouldn't be left to local authorities.
