And you're too dumb to even be posting on here. Go call your handlers and ask for instructions on what you should do. And it won't involve talking or posting.

Diff would be she is still paying it off instead of stiffing creditors... aka... GOP campaign reform.

Since she is a multimillionaire, why doesn't she pay off her debts? Isn't that what a one percenter should do?

This is ridiculous, it wasn't 10 years before Carter, public education facilities in some parts of America were off limits to all Americans equally from Kindergarten, to College.

You're revising American History to fit your narrative.

Our nation existed just fine without nationalized education until Jimmy Carter created the Federal level Dept. of Education in the late 1970's.
And since it's inception, our educational system has only gotten worse. The Federal Department of Education has proven to be a failure.
Education was better when it was left to the states, and with the states is where education should remain.

But they were not by the time Jimmy Carter became President and created the Federal Level Dept. of Education.

Thus, the assertion by some on the left that the Federal Department of Education was necessary to integrate schools is an absolute falsehood.

The Federal Department of Education was created to force a standardized curriculum upon schools nationwide, usurping authority from state and local government, thus reducing parental rights and parental influence upon schools.

Rather than having schools be accountable to parents, parents are now accountable to schools.

The result has been a continuous downward spiral in education standards as our school system abandoned proven effective teaching methods for experimental methods that have failed. Thus, our children are continuously "dumbed down" to the lowest common denominator. What's more, the school system quit teaching people HOW to think, and instead now teach kids WHAT to think.

Rather than producing kids who have the skills necessary to face the world as independent individuals, we are now producing "good citizens" willing to accept governmental authority, without the capability to think for themselves.

Almost as if that has been the plan all along.

Hell, ole' Bill could give one speech to the Chinese and pay that off with money to spare! What's the hold up?

Of course, that would mean paying off their own debt, and liberals only believe in doing that with OTHER people's money, if at all possible.

They were.

And you told us that segregation was over DECADES before that happened.

And I pointed out that segregation was part of the educational landscape including my high school as late as 1970s.

And, indeed, to some degree even today.

The Dept of Education was never a vehicle to ensure equal access, but rather to set standards and funding levels for education across the entire specturm of education in America.

You don't have any idea the mission of the Dept of Education, but you're loud in repeating the mantra of the republicans and those anti intellectuals in the republican party.

The States are free to participate or not. If they don't think they need the additional money, they can withdraw from Federal Programs.

How many Republican lead states option to withdraw from Federal programs and turn down the funding associated with those programs?

See they'll do anything for a buck

Then you lefties better get your talking points straight, because Barefoot and a few others appear to have gone off the reservation.

Or is it you who has done so?

No matter. The entire Federal level Department of Education has resulted in a decrease in learning standards, and successive generations of less educated Americans.

It serves no purpose whatsoever, and should be eliminated entirely.
