Perhaps in seeing that he’s slipped in all of the latest 2016 Republican presidential polls, Senator Marco Rubio has taken a conservative hard-lined stance against the Department of Education.
Rubio wants to abolish the Department of Education, and does not support Common Core education standards.
Rubio, who has already stated that he opposed Common Core, made his remarks at a campaign stop in Carson City, Nevada in front of a group of 200.
“What starts out as a suggestion ends up being, ‘If you want money from us, you must to do it this way,’ and you will end up with a version of a national school board,” Rubio said. “We don’t need a national school board,” adding, “I honestly think we don’t need a Department of Education.”-AP
Considering that he will need the conservative base of the GOP to win the 2016 presidential nomination, could this be the start of a very hawkish Rubio presidential campaign?
According to the Real Clear Politics nationwide average of 2016 GOP presidential polls, Rubio currently has 6 percent of Republican support. Frontrunner Donald Trump has 26 percent support.
