Education

Rik backs school choice for parents and children locked in failing schools, and will free local districts to make curriculum decisions, not federal bureaucrats.  A student should never have their future determined by their zip code and the failing schools that serve it.  High dropout rates, low test scores, and rampant absenteeism are sadly typical of many failing schools in New Jersey and throughout the country.  All too often, those schools are in minority neighborhoods.  This is unfair and immoral, and it must change immediately before another generation is lost.
