This article is addressed to those who are considering voting for Hillary Clinton, although those who have decided not to may want to read it as well.
Hillary Clinton wants your vote. What does she offer? Will she perform as promised? How well has performance lived up to promises in the past? The same questions can be asked of her party. How well will candidate and party serve those who vote for them?
Clinton frequently cites her concern for children, even writing a book about them. Concern for children implies concern about their education. The US leads the world in per student spending on elementary and secondary education. Unfortunately, US students, especially those in inner city school systems, rank low on international tests of knowledge and skills in standard subject areas. Most worrisome is their abysmal performance in math and science, the foundation for competitiveness and growth in the global economy.
