Education

Every few years the Federal government adds a new agency, or department to govern our nation.  We don't need most of these organizations.  Too often they are duplicating work done by local governments or doing work that the government should not be doing at all.

I would eliminate the Department of Education.  Education is a local function.  Children need to learn to read, write, and do mathematics.  They need to learn history, art, and music.  That has been true for the history of our nation.  We don't need to spend millions of dollars at the Federal level for people to do that basic government service.

End all Federal aid to education.  Local people can figure out what they want to spend their money on and if education is a priority then they can spend money on schools.  The people of Minnesota don't need to tell the people of Alabama how to educate their children; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
