As most should know but maybe they do not...Public Schools are under control of the Federal Government. How did that come about? Most probably do not remember the days when most kids lived closed enough to their public school they could walk or bike there. All that changed when the government became obsessed with forcing integration on everyone. We all know how that has big one stupdenouos failure to the tune of billions and billions of dollars....and there is no end in sight....the the Feds keep puring money into that failed concept trying to make it work. If they had spent all that money on creating quality schools for blacks as well as for whites....we would have one fantastic school system. Does anyone know just how one program alone involved with that costs us billions of dollars....bussing......huge,huge, hugely expensive and all it has done is to transfer ghetto problems to the suburbs. No one knows the problems of the public schools like the local officials...but what is happening of course is that bureaucrats in Washington far removed .....are creating the policies for our public schools. Depite all the evidence that Washington is the huge problem in so many areas....some want to give more and more control to the Feds. Why is that?
