The federal government has no damn business having anything to do with education at any level. The Dept of Education is unconstitutional and should be completely eliminated along with every single federal program and every single dollar that goes with them. When the Dept of Education was created (unconstitutionally) America was number one in the world in education, now we're not even top 25. If you don't agree with the Constitutional argument then how about this... ITS NOT WORKING!! Government involvement in education is destroying education! Leave it to the states or better yet the individual communities to decide what their education system needs.
