Ernest Istook quotes :
It's good that the first half of the speech emphasized freedom, because George W. Bush has been the global champion for freedom. As he said, if we don't fight tyranny it will not leave us alone in peace.Ernest Istook
Research and development needs permanent tax credits to build the technology that spurs our growth. But no government programs alone can get America's students to study more science and math parents must push and help their children to meet this goal.Ernest Istook
Education begins at home and I applaud the parents who recognize that they - not someone else - must take responsibility to assure that their children are well educated.Ernest Istook
I remind everyone: Whether you school them at home or send them to school, you as a parent have the responsibility to make sure they learn and behave. Teachers and principals may help, but parents are the ones who must accept responsibility.Ernest Istook
