If we are serious about democracy, educated citizens are required. If you are against an educated citizenry, you are against democracy. This simple test separates the fascists and demagogues from legitimate statesman, regardless of party affiliation or rhetoric. #demotest
How does your candidate do on the Democracy Test?
No one who is against education ever says straight out that they are against education. One might hint that "A university education might not be for everybody". This is true when applied to one or another individual, but demonstrably false when made into official policy. Don't get me started on the school voucher debacle.
