Removing Two More of Obama’s Federal Jackboot Heels

The Senate recently canned two sets of regulations finalized late last year by Obama’s Department of Education.  One of them is 695 pages long!

PAY ATTENTION HERE:  These are REGULATIONS created by non-elected, federal government employees that usurp education functions that the Constitution specifically says belong to the States.

According to Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), not only does the federal government lack the constitutional authority to interfere in local decision-making about education, but also the REGULATION he speaks against specifically violates a LAW passed by Congress just last year!

Ben Sasse Speaks Against Federal Teacher Mandate [11:27] < WORTH VIEWING

I am fundamentally opposed to the federal government having anything to do with education.  

I believe it puts too much distance between the people making the rules and the teachers and parents who know their own kids best.

Plus, the more centralized anything is, the more people who need to be bribed or blackmailed to get decisions made that benefit those with lots of money and very few morals.

Exhibit A: The Common Core textbook scandal that Project Veritas exposed, showing textbook publishers explaining that Common Core was all about the money, not the kids.

No Child Left Behind and Common Core have both been tried and have both proven to be failures.  Constitutionally, education is a state function.  Get the feds out of education!

One response to “Removing Two More of Obama’s Federal Jackboot Heels

  1. Today’s little-known historical fact: The federal Department of Education did not exist prior to 1980. Before that, most schools were doing a much better job of educating kids than they are doing nowadays. We have never needed a Department of Education. In fact, education in this country would certainly improve if everyone higher than the local school board were offered early retirement, and those who didn’t accept the offer were fired.
