Republican Sen. Rand Paul may not have the clout in Congress to reach his goal of eliminating the Department of Education, but he can do a close second: shut down the Senate committee trying to pass sweeping new federal education legislation.

I’m one of the old-fashioned conservatives who does believe that schools are and should be under local and state control,” Paul said as he mounted his objection from the Senate floor.“There’s no provisions for the federal government to be involved. Period.”

Good job Rand!

Transfer control of the eductaion system back to that of the states and local municipalities. As it was before Jimmy Carter and the establishment of the department of Education.

it is the truth and well known that level of education is very, very low in Usa, but country has no money for such purposes, Us politicians must lead wars, militaries and give ,,foreign aid,, for wars, civil wars, weapon and another redundant countries like one very well known, which gets a few hundred bilions year in year from government of Usa.
