Where Bob Dole Stands on K-12 Education

Americans Are Spending More on Education and Getting Less
Bob Dole is a strong believer in America's public education system. He, his wife and his daughter were educated in public schools. But today, too many public schools have been taken over by an education monopoly that fails to give our children the skills they need to compete in our global economy.

Two out of every three 17-year-olds do not know that World War II was fought sometime between 1900 and 1950, according to a study by the National Assessment of Educational Progress. The study also reports that 20 percent of high school seniors are functionally illiterate.

Just throwing money at the problem is not the answer. In the past 30 years, per-pupil spending on education has doubled, yet average SAT scores have dropped over 50 points.

Bob Dole Will Empower Low- and Middle-Income Parents With School Choice
As President, Bob Dole will create Opportunity Scholarships for Children, a federal, state and local effort to give four million low- and middle-income families the ability to select the best schools for their children.

More opportunities. Smaller government. Stronger and safer families
