Why in the world is the federal government involved in setting nationwide education standards? Exactly where is that power given to the federal government? Don’t these people realize that you get the absolute BEST education outcomes when states are free to experiment/manage their own education methods and standards? We’re supposed to have 50 individual experiment labs (states) to have the best education results trickle to the top, to be copied by other states when found to be successful.
Central planners just can’t help themselves….they know what’s best for the entire country.
