I would like someone other than John McCain to press Obama on vouchers. From the debate last night, it seems that he realizes that the public school system in the United States is inexcusable, that teacher's unions have played a significant role in keeping schools the way they are and that charter schools should be supported.
It's unfortunate that it's only on the verge of the election that we're really hearing the candidates talk about education. It relates directly to the economy, because if children are afraid to go to school, have low self-confidence or are lacking in basic skills and knowledge, we will be unable to compete with other countries. That is completely unacceptable.
