Junk the Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

Im­prov­ing ed­u­ca­tion in a ma­jor way is a lot eas­ier than you might think (“Ad­vanc­ing Amer­i­can ed­u­ca­tion,” Web, Nov. 27): Sim­ply abol­ish the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion and re­turn this re­spon­si­bil­ity to the states, where it be­longs. Be­fore Jimmy Carter fed­er­al­ized them, pub­lic schools did an ex­cel­lent job of ed­u­cat­ing and turn­ing out qual­i­fied and re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zens, and at a much more rea­son­able cost.
