Our children deserve an education system that allows for more parental guidance and less governmental influence to provide them with the best opportunities for bright futures!   

 My greatest passion is family.  In my role as a youth soccer coach I heard the stories of 100’s of local youth and their parents. As my children began to enter the public school system, these stories continued. I am a product of the public education system and see how issues that I faced are ones facing my children now. I believe that success is founded in the continuous pursuit of knowledge.  Most importantly, I am concerned that our children are missing out on educational opportunities due to the current state of our education system and its forced compliance to government mandated standards.

     I am concerned that our education system is designed by the government and strategically engineered to meet their agenda. The current system is primarily focused on receiving funding resulting in the education of our children being an afterthought. I believe our children’s education is far better off in the hands of the dedicated and talented educators with intentional influence and input from their parents. Education has been managed by parents and communities for centuries and only recently seized by the selfish hands of politicians and bureaucracy. Education is the optimum setting to apply libertarian ideals and individual rights.

   Educating our youth should be removed from the forced governmental oversight under which it now falters.  The most trustworthy advocates for a child’s education are those who place value on them, those whose objectives seek only the betterment and benefit of the children. In politics children are statistics and numbers. To their parents and teachers they are the future leaders, visionaries, and activists.  The influence and decisions of the education system belong under the guidance of a group who seeks the benefit, growth, and best interest of our children enabling them to maximize their potential beyond the standards.

     As parents who foster our children’s well being we must upset the status quo and create a system that serves their future the greatest. We must foster a system that is based on accountability and transparency. A system where our teachers and schools are not forced to follow guidelines that do not serve their students best interests. The teachers have far too long had their hands tied on doing what they know is best. It’s beyond time that parents reclaim the right to facilitate the education of their children and provide our educators the freedom to apply their passion.

As a Libertarian, I seek a world of liberty: a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and are not forced to sacrifice their values for the benefit of others.

I believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.

I believe education should be removed from overreaching governmental regulations and that the education of children is a parental responsibility. We should restore authority to parents to determine the education of their children, without interference from government
