Unpopular(?) Opinion: Something as basic as education should not have a national footprint. It should be handled/funded/organized at the state and local levels.

Match and raise the Opinion Unpopularity contest:

Something as basic as education shouldn't have the government involved at all.

Double Down: Something as vital as a basic education shouldn't have the state, or federal government involved at all.


If we did that, and basically left it up to the parents to educate their children; ie, no State or fed to just "babysit" kids all day - the most ignorant of society will produce children who are illiterate and unable to be productive, ever.

Even in the Democrat shitholes of the US, it'd be almost impossible to justify "Diversity and inclusion" if your "Affirmative action" hires are literally incapable of reading, writing, or any basic skill expected of them...

I know someone might think it's cruel to say it; but, that's about what it's going to take... If shitty parents want to have kids to siphon welfare, or steal a man's income, enjoy living with those kids forever, or, nut up and be ready to provide for them so they can get out and be productive.

Right, and I think this is a tragic consequence of us all having to live in the real world, where parents who make poor moral choices wind up inflicting them upon and impoverishing their children.

I don't think it's cruel to point out this fact, I think we've been lied to that it's cruel to tell the truth when it's actually far crueler to do what we have done in the name of a lie: hand kids over to the government to give them some basic literacy but no critical thinking skills, and an absolutely retarded foundation that will never preserve their own freedoms.

If we let the chips fall where they may for parents to self educate, and cut off welfare programs, we would see a lot of kids in need. But without the third party invader of the government, we would also see a lot of parents adopt kids from bad family situations. Not saying it would all be perfection and roses, but we could restore a foundation of freedom in the majority of children and bring back incentive for good samaritan parents to help and be an anchor for the kids who have it worst in our society.

How would this be any different than what we have now? I'll tell you how - with the government out of the school business, at least the ignorant kids won't also be tranny communists.

Not unpopular. It's not the gun or the bullet. The person who pulls the trigger is on trial; sometimes.

Not unpopular among serious conservatives. Dept of Education should have went away decades ago.

Basically all federal three-letter agencies should be gone. The progressives turned this country into a massive administrative state.

I wish Trump would say he wants to axe a bunch of cabinet posts and departments, Education at the top of the list. US educational standards have gone consistently downhill ever since the introduction of the DoE so what the fuck are they doing and why should our tax dollars go to it?

Opinion?
Just point to the Constitution and ask where it says "Department of Education" Then point to the part where it says that anything not explicitly spelled out in the Constitution goes to State and local governments.

Great to hear! I'm glad my state has taken this step (Ohio), and I'm looking forward to as many states backing out as we can get. The more decentralized we are, the better.

Perhaps the biggest silver lining I've ever seen to a bad situation, is that this CRT crap has finally awoken parents that they need to be paying attention to what's being spoon-fed into their children in the public schools.

Get all up in that schools shit, mom and dad. The more you discover, the more you'll start to realize just how mendacious the people running these public schools are.

This is pretty interesting.

"But that didn’t mean the founders were pro-federal education. Churches and towns had been running schools since the earliest European settlers landed in North America. At a time in world history when public education was a rarity, some American settlements actually required it. Massachusetts’ Old Deluder Satan Act of 1642, for example, directed “every township in this jurisdiction, after the Lord hath increased them to 50 households, shall forthwith appoint one within their town to teach all such children as shall resort to him to write and read, whose wages shall be paid either by the parents or masters of such children, or by the inhabitants in general.” (The remarkable name of the act was a reference to education’s power to counter the devil, who wants humans illiterate and unable to read God’s directions in the Bible.)"

Democrats really are satan.

LOL, for an organization already owing 20million in back taxes… any loss of paying members means that it will fold fairly quickly… if all 20 states that sent concern letters follow through and leave like ohio did, NSBA is a sunk ship… good for them

^This is the real reason why they apologized for siccing the FBI on parents, several other states have already done it like Pennsylvania and Missouri. And I would hope more red states join in.

Thats a step in the right direction but the second to last paragraph was unnecessary. It isn’t about control at the local level to prevent violence against school board officials. It’s about parent’s rights to protect their children from Marxist indoctrination by any means necessary.

The ONLY reason the NSBA walked back their "concerned parents are terrorists" letter is because of this issue: PA dropped them, now OH.

NSBA is on course to become extinct with no members paying in dues

Decentralization. Essentially restoring power to the state and local government, taking it back from the feds.

The phrase, "...terminate the National School Board Association..." may have different meaning to different people at different times . What does it mean to you?
