Education is an issue I don't know terribly much about. My knowledge tends to boil down to a couple of things, we spend ever increasing amounts of money on public education and exercise ever increasing centralized control of education but have no improvements to show for our investments. I would like for candidates that promise increased funding to actually demonstrate how these increases will translate into better results. Unfortunately education policy seems to parallel our approach with international aid, cashing a check on behalf of our guilty consciences.
