Stop Fed Ed!

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. In addition: 1. join USPIE at… 2.
