Rand Paul would not only like to abolish the Department of Education, but he does not want your kids thinking that "two mommies" in a family is acceptable or normal. Quote from the Kentucky Senate debate on Thursday, Oct. 15, 2010.
I would rather the local schools decide things. I don’t like the idea of somebody in Washington deciding that Susie has two mommies is an appropriate family situation and should be taught to my kindergardener at school. That’s what happens when we let things get to a federal level. I think I would rather have local school boards, teachers, parents, people in Paduka deciding about your schools and not have it in Washington.
