Even as we live through the biggest recession since the Great Depression, we
are also witnesses to the most expansive exercise of federal power since the New Deal.
Following massive federal intervention in the economy, and the unprecedented requirement that everyone buy health insurance, the Obama Administration continues its takeover of K-12 education in the face of Constitutional and legal constraints.
The latest is the Department of Education’s decision to issue waivers to states on some of the toughest “No Child Left Behind” requirements, but only if the states present plans the feds like for future reforms.
It’s one more step down the road of federalizing K-12 education, the one thing that almost anyone would say should be a state and local, not a federal, matter.
This growth of federal power is breathtaking and dangerous and needs to be stopped.
