Homeschooling is great for children who do not relate well to their peers
Actually, studies show that homeschool kids do better academically and are socially adjusted better than public school kids. I'm an atheist so you know that I don't like the whole religious homeschool thing just on principle, but because our public schools are so awful with lib union inept teachers---even they do far far better than public schools. Department of education should be dismantled and the states should take over schooling of their kids---they certainly couldn't do any worse than what we got now.
Schools ARE run by state and local boards NOW.
They are but the federal government uses funding as a means to influence the education departments of the states.
AGAIN, the great majority of funding comes from local property taxes.

But the feds do influence State Schools by giving money with strings attached.

You work for a school are you denying this?

The federal government supplies up about 9% of State education budgets.

That amounts to billions of dollars annually. While not the majority it is certainly a wedge that applies leverage so the feds can make state public schools do what it wants or it withholds funds.

What state education board wants a 9% budget cut ?

91 percent state and local.

They make the rules, elect the school boards, hire teachers, set the curriculum, select textbooks

Don't start making shit up again

You deny that federal money has any influence on state education policies.

You are, as usual, WRONG

Every single state school board will do whatever the Federal Dept of Ed tells them to do because they all need that federal money.

Don't be so fucking naive

Boy, 12, dares to speak up for President Trump in class. Teacher asks student why he supports ‘a racist and a pedophile.’ Bad idea.

“Once Jackson’s family found out what went down in his class, they fought back. They contacted a First Amendment attorney and asked the school for an apology, WBZ said — and got one. Jackson told WHDH that the teacher later apologized to him in front of the entire class, and he said that helped.”

I’m so old I remember when schools promoted free thinking.
When did schools ever promote free thinking, in our day they didn't allow males to have long hair nor did they allow shorts to be worn when it was hot.

Not moving them at all.

But you keep denying that state boards of education don't do what the feds want them to so they can get more money.

Bullshit. That's exactly what you and some other ignorant yahoos here have been doing. First it was a lot of blather about "our centrally controlled national education system." When that was debunked it became "yeah, but they get ALL their money from the federal government, so they have to do whatever they say!" And now it's "9% means the bean counters in DC set all policies for all schools every class every fucking day down to what color socks teachers have to wear!"

Goal post moving at it's most ridiculous.

OK Quote me where i said any of that.

Or do you insist on attributing to me things I did not say so you can then argue against them.

You morons who say federal money has no effect on school policies are obtuse.
