Chapter 4: Academic Standards and Assessment Effective Date: January 16, 1999
Finally, why have we allowed the federal government to consistently expand its control over our local school systems?
These questions all point to an inescapable conclusion: the federal government is not the answer. The key to fixing our education system is to reduce the role of the federal government and expand local and parental control of schools. Funding decisions increasingly have been controlled by bureaucrats in Washington, causing public and even some private schools to follow the dictates of these federal "educrats" to an ever-greater degree to preserve their funding. As a result, curricula, teacher standards, textbook selection, and discipline policies have been crafted in Washington. Rigorous classes in basics such as mathematics, grammar, science, Western civilization, and history have been reduced or eliminated, while politically favored subjects have been forced upon students.

Local Control is the Key to Education Reform Nice work, Mr. Paul, but STOP FUNDING LOCAL EDUCATION, it's not your constitutional obligation, but rather education is a state power, granted to the states by 9th and 10th amendments.
