C. Wesley Morgan on Education

 

 


Government should get out of the student loan business

Q: Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?

A: I think the U.S student has been sold a bill of goods with an inadequate education. The government should do a one time payoff off all student loans. After that, the government should get out of the student loan business. Our college and university system should be overhauled to provide an education that teaches students an appropriate course study that guarantees a student can find a job at graduation.

Reform education towards career prep

I want education in Kentucky to undergo serious reforms. Reforms that would not only make the quality of education better; but would also more efficiently prepare students for their career."

Strongly anti-free college, according to AFA survey.

Morgan opposes the AFA survey question on free college

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
