Do we Need a Federal Department of Education?

“If No Child is Left Behind, How can Any Child Get Ahead?”

doed_ico_1colWhen was the last time someone from the Fed was directly involved your child’s education?

When was the last time you saw a Fed at a schoolhouse, unless it was during a drug raid?

Who signs your child’s teacher’s paycheck, the Feds or the locals?

A Solution?

classroom_2214Take most everything I said about the Federal Highway Administration and apply it to the U.S. Department of Education.

Replace the U.S. Department of Education with a committee formed by the State Boards of Education.

Everyone involved would be paid by their respective States. There will be no federal involvement except by demand, when the states could not settle an issue on their own.
