Since a few of you listed it as a campaign issue, what are some thoughts on the issue?
I think education is an issue best left up to local and state governments.
Issues that public schools face in one region or economic sector are often very different than schools in another.
When the federal (and usually state) government passes down policies to fix a problem in some schools, it usually causes problems for others.
I think the feds and states should allow local districts live and die by their own decisions and not strap them with regulations that private schools don't have to deal with.
