Allowing the government to control the curriculum is superior to the community alternative in many ways. In order to demonstrate this, allow me to create a hypothetical situation. In this situation there are two countries; country A and country B. In country A, the community is allowed to choose the curriculum taught in schools. In country B, the government is allowed to choose the curriculum.

In country A, the students develop the skill that are present in the community. For example, a community full of carpenters and artists will teach the students skills associated with carpentry and arts. This is because those are what the community considers important and has available. This system would result in students not only getting a lop sided education, but also not being able to efficiently learn new skills. As a result of this, the community would begin to suffer from a lack of variety in skill.

Country B will not suffer from any of these problems. This is because the government has access to more resources and is not biased to the skills present locally. Instead, a well rounded, well funded, curriculum will be taught to the students. This will allow for the students to enter a much greater variety of disciplines.

I understand that it is tempting to take the reigns on your child's education, but Big Brother knows best.

I know this. There should be far less federal involvement.Give the rights back to the parents to choose what is best for their kids. Very few parents do not care what happens to their kids.Most do.
