Congressman Allen West (R-FL-22) brought conservative politics to the Barry Kaye Auditorium on Nov 10.

West, whose district encompasses the Palm Beach and Broward coastlines, spoke to around 200 students and faculty about the economy, recently passed bills and the importance of maintaining conservative values in today’s society.

After he was done speaking students and faculty were permitted to ask him questions.

In regards to education, West said he’s against  FCAT and the No Child Left Behind Act. “FCAT isn’t teaching [students],” West said, “It makes you a robot. We need a revamp of education.” West did not elaborate on what that revamp would entail.
