Our nation’s schools were once the best in the world.
Now, they are among the worst. Millions of American students are being seriously mis-educated. In Washington DC schools, controlled by Congress, thousands of students don’t even learn to read.
I will work to close DC schools in June, fire the union hacks and bureaucrats, turn the schools over to the teachers, and bring in the finest educators. Reopening in September, DC schools will be examples of excellence to our nation.
Gradual improvement is not acceptable. Our 50 million students cannot wait.
I have taught undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students at UCSD and Stanford, and with my family educated more than 100,000 K-12 students – providing award winning curriculum, books, and $600,000 in scholarships to students.
My six children earned advanced degrees in science, engineering, and veterinary medicine – five doctoral degrees and one masters.
I know education. I know how to fix our nation’s schools.
Peter DeFazio, has worked only in politics, become a millionaire at taxpayer expense, never taught students, and talks about scholarships – but votes against school improvements, so special interests will support his re-election campaigns.
My coworkers and I have worked for 48 years to improve health and diminish suffering.
We found new methods for early diagnosis; we discovered urinary patterns diagnostic of breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and diseases of aging. We have made valuable discoveries about nutrition and cancer and Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
Our medical and biochemical research work is published in the most prestigious scientific journals, including theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Nature, Science, and many others.
DeFazio ridicules our research.
A politician who, for political gain, votes against school improvement and demeans valuable medical research should not be re-elected.
