    Well, education is very local already. I really want to hear the arguments on both sides for this one.

    One thing that we need to do is re-segregate the public school system. Degregation has ruined public schools all across the nation and it has taken our education system downhill.

    There is no proven correlation between race and intelligence. Thus, argument nullified.


    As to the OP, I believe that the Dept. of Education has committed the criminal act (in education) of homogenizing education.

    Education needs to be personalized.

    That's not the problem. It's the damn government that's the problem. Our current farce and the one in the constitution are two different entities.

    Wait what??? So you want us to turn back to the Jim Crow laws where segregation based on race was the norm? I personally enjoyed having the ablity to talk and get to know people from a different background of myself - helped broaden my perspective on things. Boy, a black man in the White House must really piss you off.

    Convince me that education is not a vital national interest, and you'll convince me the federal government ought not be concerned with it.

    Sorry but blacks aren't as intelligent as whites. Mixing blacks in the classrooms with white children has caused the Dept of Education to change testing proceedures in order to make it easier for the black child to compete. It is a truth that must be accepted.
