Abolish the Department of Education

How did the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania get along from the beginning of the Republic in 1787 until 1978 — 191 years — and yet manage to educate its kids without the existence of the U.S. Department of Education?

And, being one who is a graduate of both a Pennsylvania public high school and a Pennsylvania private college (Franklin and Marshall College, as it happens, dates from 1787) — how did the Commonwealth manage to educate the bulk of those kids well? Kids from all economic backgrounds, all races and both genders?

 

 

 

 

 

The response will surely come — as it does with every proposal to eliminate anything large or small in the federal government — that the Department of Education is, don’t you know, indispensable. That the $68.1 billion budget for the federal Education Department (not to mention the 5,000 federal employees it has gained as the Cabinet’s smallest (!) department) is critical to educating America’s kids — and without it the nation will collapse.

 

What’s going here in this sequester discussion is precisely what our friend Mark Levin has discussed in his bestseller Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America.

 

The real reason for the existence of the U.S. Department of Education is, to borrow from Levin, “the perfectability of mankind” — in this case through the establishment of a federal educational Leviathan. Without it, perfection cannot possibly be attained.

    Yes, abolish the dept of education, by dumping The god That Failed and returning to our First Constitution, The Articles of Confederation. Goodbye potus, judicial, congres, and all those alphabet-soup oppressive federal agencies; back to states rights!!!!!
