There is a certain target the federal government has for federal aid be it school lunches or anything else. Once a school hits that target, the federal government gets to insert some of their curriculum.<quoted text>Sry, Not quite true. Briefly asked, why is there a Dept of Education in D.C. if they have nothing to do with local schools? I also can't see how reduced & free meals could not at least influence any school that recieves them.
That would seem a good reason for school vouchers...freedom away from the Feds!
In any case, I was talking about the federal government being involved with local religious issues from a Constitutional point of view.
If it were up to me, I would close down all bureaucracies including the department of education. We don't need half of these bureaucracies and they are a waste of our tax dollars. The only reason they are there is to make the federal government larger.
