    Empty the public schools. Since education is required by law, more parents can set up homeschools, cooperatives, or opt for private schools (parents won't pull their kids out, they're paying for it), quickly breaking the back of the public system's indoctrination monopoly.

    The better teachers will migrate out, the useless ones will lose a job they don't deserve in any case.

    Win-win.

    You will never get what you want in terms of gun control, however.

    Funny how schools were better before there was a Dept of Education.

    They used to be local/state run.

    What happened was the Fed got the states hooked on their big block grants, then the policy changes started a-comin'.

    Yep, an unholy alliance of power hungry bureaucrats resulting in our spending more per student than just about any other country while producing increasingly shitty results.

    Government workers should not be allowed to have unions.

    They should--otherwise the teachers are left with a bunch of gossiping biddies that are up in arms over rumors, little Timmy not passing his class or whatever the hell and are fired. Teachers don't have time for that nonsense.
