Okay, I was reading up on libertarian positions. I like an awful lot of their positions, BUT education is probably the most important issue for me and the Libertarian Party page had this to say about it:
Am I reading this wrong, or is this basically saying the libertarian solution is school vouchers for everyone? Also, hasn't the first of those been accomplished by the No Child Left Behind Act?To transfer control of education from bureaucrats to parents and teachers and encourage alternatives to the public school monopoly, the Libertarian Party would:
* Support a true market in education -- one in which parents and students would not be stuck with a bad local school, because they could choose another.
* Implement measures such as tax credits so that parents will have the financial ability to choose among schools.
* Provide financial incentives for businesses to help fund schools and for individuals to support students other than their own children.
* Eliminate the U.S. Department of Education, which spends billions on education and educates no one. The growth of this agency and its numerous regulations is a major reason for runaway costs in American schools.
