Should there be national education standards? | DEBATEitOUT.com
"I don't think there should be national education standards.The federal government has no jurisdiction over the education of our children. The U.S. Constitution does not list education as one of the duties or responsibilities of the federal government.I think the proper way to educate our young children is better left to the state and local governments but most importantly, to the parents.Furthermore, I say we dismantle the Department of Education. Education is just one more thing, like health care, that the federal government needs to keep its nose out of."
