U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio made waves on his first official day on the 2016 campaign trail, tearing into the Common Core education standards and saying he would consider dumping the Department of Education if he is elected president.

Rubio told Manchester Community College students Friday that he is “very cautious about the federal government’s role in establishing curriculum standards.”

“If I was president of the United States, I would not have a Department of Education, perhaps at all,” Rubio told reporters at a party after the speech. “We don’t need a national school board.”

Conservatives who oppose Common Core applauded the idea on Twitter.
