Alabama's Education system is lagging way behind the rest of the world. How should we go about fixing this? by providing new technology to the classrooms and ensuring that our teachers are of good quality. bureaucrats and poor spending when it comes to education are the problems. Our schools are too busy teaching social doctrine to teach the basics. will support tax credits for Alabama families who send their children to a private school/homeschool by providing new technology to the classrooms. Furthermore, we need programs in place to keep disruptive children from stunting the learning oppurtunities of all the other students 4. Should we raise Taxes? Lower taxes? What should we do? We didn't need to raise taxes to meet our budgetary demands ...we needed to make our government be responsible with the massive amount of money they already get from our labors. We don't need any new taxes. Matter of fact I'd get rid of some. Tax cuts should only be implemented when we are at a surplus 5. Immigration is a hot topic. How should we deal with it? Illegal Aliens should be jailed until we are able to deport them. We could do such things as train State Troopers in Customs and Immigrations We should ensure that Alabama employers know the legal status of their employees, and punish those who knowingly hire illegal immigrants. In addition, we should be able to more accurately deny illegal immigrant access to state-funded benefit programs. Until our government gets a hold of our borders, any aliens we ship out will just come right back.I support a guest worker program and making naturalization easier. 6.
