John McCain on Education Policy
"Education is the civil rights issue of this century. Equal access to public education has been gained but what is the value of access to a failing school. We need to shake up the education system. We will empower parents with choice. Let's remove barriers to qualified instructors, attract and reward good teachers, and help bad teachers find another line of work. When a public schools fails to meets its obligations to students, parents deserve a choice and i inted to give it to them.
I want schools to answer to parents and students."
