Send educational funds in BLOCK GRANTS to EVERY STATE. Let that state divvy out the funds and let local officials resolve problems.
We, as a nation, have thrown BILLIONS toward education and the results are horrendous!

Let educational funds from Feds, State and Local municipalities to follow each child to a school of their choice: public, private, parochial, charter, virtual...let parents decide!
