School Choice & Property Taxes

Education is the cornerstone of opportunity and the foundation of the American meritocracy.

Americans should have the best education, period. From elementary schools to colleges and universities, our historical progress has always started with good educational facilities. Unfortunately, progress is now threatened by overreaching government influence and political special interests.

By fighting for strong schools and ending excessive government interference, we can give every child an equal chance at achieving the American Dream.

That means decentralizing educational regulation, with the goal of eliminating federal influence entirely. We must promote school-choice policies at the state and local levels.

We also must promote a return to healthy and diverse debate in our universities, an activity that’s become biased toward far-left political ideology. No college or university should be able to receive any federal funding without publicly presenting a balanced and unbiased admissions process, as well as curriculum and faculty.

School funding and property taxes are directly connected in New Jersey and the system is flawed.

When a school with less than 15% proficiency in math and reading is rewarded with over $42,000 per student, per year in state aid while schools producing 99% proficiency have faced funding cuts, we must immediately enact a fair funding formula to reduce property taxes and to reward students and teachers rather than teachers’ unions.

I will free parents and students from failing schools and implement school choice for every child, whether he or she attends private, charter, or parochial schools. The money must follow the child.
