Both parties are concerned about education and both parties largely agree that funding public education (at least K-12) is a legitimate role of government.  There are significant disagreements about what should be taught in these "publicly" funded schools, however.

Governmental Control

Democrats want the government to have absolute control of the nation's education system, beginning with preschool and continuing to colleges and universities. 

Democrats are also in favor of extending publicly funded education to include colleges and universities.

They want to increase taxes to pay for college and university education as well as K-12.

Higher Education is Run by Liberals & Democrats

Only about 3% of college and university professors claim to be conservative.

Freedom of Speech is Being Denied

The liberals that were such energetic proponents for free speech now want opposing ideologies silenced since they are in control.  They weren't actually for freedom of speech after all ... 

President Trump has issued an executive order to try and rectify this problem.

Republicans *:
Parental Control

Republicans want to empower parents to choose how their children are educated and are in favor institutions that are outside of governmental control to be free to provide educational alternatives as well.

Republicans are largely opposed to the government funding education beyond high school.

The government and private sectors provide billions of dollars in grants and scholarships for students, essentially providing for free college education for poor students that are motivated.

For those that do not qualify for such grants or scholarships academically or athletically, government-backed student loans are easy to get and are very low cost.


On this issue, Donald Trump pretty much embraces the historic Republican positions, but he is pushing back on some of the largest errors that the left has planted in our nation's educational system (such as the denial of conservative voices having freedom of speech on college and university campuses) and opposing the 1619 project that is an attempt to re-write our nation's history.

My Position?

I would like for the government to GET OUT of education.  I am in favor of truly "public" schools, which would be created and controlled by local communities.

I am an advocate for PARENTS deciding how their children will be educated.  I like home school.  I like private schools.  I like "community" schools.  The current system, created by the two Johns (John Dewey & John Rockefeller) simply produces compliant slaves that are unable to think for themselves or think critically.

The FATHER & FUNDER of Government Education in America

John Dewey, The FATHER of Modern, American Education

John Dewey (1859-1952) was the education philosopher largely credited with the creation of the modern, progressive approach to education that now dominates American schools. His influence was far-reaching and cannot be denied.

Dewey's educational model came from the Soviets.

Writing in Impressions of Soviet Russia and the Revolutionary World (1928), Dewey dug into education in the communist country and its examples for America.

Ultimately, he came to the conclusion that only in a communist society can the kind of education reform he envisioned be achieved.

He recognized that the education system is knowingly set against the family and individualism.

He saw the public school as a mechanism to encroach in to families and separate the children from their parents in order to shape their thinking.

This dove-tails perfectly into the goals that John Rockefeller had for American education.

John D. Rockefeller, The FUNDER of Modern, American Education

He was joined by his friend, business associate and advisor Frederick T Gates.

Never confuse education with intelligence.”
– Albert Einstein

I don’t want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers.
– John D Rockefeller

“In our dream we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand.

The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk.

We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or of science.

We are not to raise up among them authors, orators, poets, or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians.

Nor will we cherish even the humbler ambition to raise up from among them lawyers, doctors, preachers, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply.”

– Frederick T Gates
