? A Pandemic Presidential Campaign & The Case for Education Choice
Viewpoint Presents with Malcolm and Michael Johns returns for Episode Three with a look at the pressing political and public policy developments of the week, including the challenges associated with a presidential campaign that is unfolding in the midst of a national pandemic, a flashback to President Trump’s pre-pandemic accomplishments from January 2017 until the pandemic’s early 2020 onset, and new legislation by U.S. Senator Rand Paul that will afford students flexibility in how U.S. federal education funding is distributed and utilized.
Election 2020 | The 2020 presidential campaign is unfolding like no other. The current pandemic is permitting presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden to largely escape the media and national scrutiny that a presidential candidate typically would encounter. This is proving somewhat beneficial to Biden since his misstatements are going largely unscrutinized and the lack of enthusiasm for his candidacy is less obvious than it would be in a more conventional setting. Additionally, both parties’ conventions will now be substantially downgraded without the typical indoor stadium crowds and excitement that typically has been associated with them. Also, three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate have now been scheduled, but are they enough and should they be moved up given the schedule of early voting in some states?
Trump’s Pre-Coronavirus Accomplishments | With the pandemic, January 2020 now seems like a long time ago. But President Trump accomplished quite a bit between taking office in January 2017 and the pandemic’s onset, including the largest tax reform and relief in thirty years, substantial easing of burdensome federal regulations, the U.S.’s removal from the flawed Iran and Paris environmental agreements, progress on resolving the previously neglected crisis of illegal immigration, and substantial accomplishments in contronting the unfair and illegal trade practices of China and other nations. The result, it is now easy to forget, was notable: President Trump created over seven million jobs in three years and drove U.S. unemployment to its lowest level in half a century. He also had the country’s wages and gross domestic product (GDP) headed upwards.
Senator Rand Paul’s Innovative Education Bill | Despite the partisan divide in Washington, D.C., U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has offered a very creative new piece of education legislation that would empower students and afford students flexibility in how federal education funds are used, including opening the opportunity for these funds to be used by students for private schooling, homeschooling, tutoring, or other educational endeavors. Choice in goods and products has proven beneficial to consumers–and education is no different. With students learning at different paces and in different ways, a truly exceptional U.S. educational system must offer flexibility and options, which means that funding should be directed at the needs of individual students, not a monolithic, one size fits all public education system.
