Viewing groups' ratings of presidential candidates and their v.p.s on education got me thinking today. I don't want a "pro" or "anti" education president! I want the national candidates to quit using education to try to get elected! The national government has tied us in knots, and it hasn't improved education.
What we need is for the national government to GET OUT of education. Give back to the states the billions they take and then partially dish back out with strong cords attached. Get out of our way and let us, the states and local people, do something WORTH doing - and NOT DO so many things of lesser priority that some national group was able to push through congress or the courts.
