Fast fact about the US Dept. of Education, which was created in 1979: In 1980 their budget was 11.5 billion. In 2015, their budget is 67 billion, which is a staggering 600% increase. And, despite this massive amount of money, the result is stagnant test scores, huge bureaucracies, and a massive increase in the cost of education.
So what can we do?
State leaders need to take a stand. We need to give up the federal funds, which come with so many strings attached. And get our kids out of government schools.

Laurens County Tea Party recently hosted a luncheon for all elected officials and community leaders in Laurens County. The well-attended luncheon featured four speakers: Senator Danny Verdin; James Simpson, an author and expert on Refugee Resettlement; Lauren Martel, an attorney who has filed a lawsuit against Gov. Haley, DSS, and two private groups, in order to stop Refugee Resettlement in SC; and the plaintiff in the case, Brian Bilbro. Here is the link to watch the event:
