I think we should quit selling our souls for the almighty federal dollar. We need to fire the U.S. Dept. of Education and put the control of the schools back into the hands of the individual counties and the school systems. As long as we keep accepting federal monies for the school, they get to keep dictating what is being taught in them. The school systems should decide how their schools are run and what is taught in them. Not "Big Brother". I am tired of the Federal Government being a part of everything we do. That is not how this country was supposed to be set up. States are supposed to sovereign. Seperate from the federal government. If we do not change this now, mark my words, this will bite us in the butt.
