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 in the education of your child?

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.
