Should the federal government be involved in education?

  • The federal government is giving us money to teach children.

    If the government is giving us money, we should use it to help teach. We have flexibility teaching, as we just have to teach what they tell us to, and we can teach it anyway we want, whenever we want (throughout the year). Also, if you finish with your educational requirements early, then you can teach whatever you want for the rest of the year.

  • The government should

    The government has standards that a teacher must use, where a public school can set standards as low as they please. Some people say that government schools teach "herd mentality" and "accepting authority" um... HAVE YOU EVER GONE TO SCHOOL?!? School is likely the place where government is MOST ridiculed! And GOVERNMENT schools are not the ones with uniforms!

  • The government protects people from segragation.

    Many people believe it is bad because they think the government will have to much power. This is false because there is seperation of powers. The government also gives financial support. They do not favor schools they only say that you must follow a few regulations, like serving healthy food. All schools can choose not to be supported. That is why some schools cost because they choose not to follow a few rules and get financial support from the government.

  • Government helps school

    Without the government the countries education would likely collapse because not every town is going to fund a private school, and that would leave uneducated kids. And without set standards teachers could simply teach their opinions and perhaps lower education. And if the government did not help schools, then many parents would be unable to afford school.

  • They Should Make Some Laws, But Not Others

    Schools should be able to make some laws, but they shouldn't be able to be in charge of schools as much as they are. There should be more rules on what they can and can not do. But they should have a bit to do with it so that schools don't just teach random things or anything like that. So part yes and part no.

  • The federal government should be in charge of funding schools for many reasons.

    First, governments fund all schools and this helps schools a lot. Next, why am I writing on this site. Also, everyones answers say the government sucks but he or she is a boss. Finally, everyone should agree with me because all of you debating this went to school with school supplies and other stuff PROVIDED BY THE GOVERNMENT.

  • No government here

    I think that the government shouldn't control the schools because yes they give us money but we don't get to choose what we do in schools. They don't even let the teachers choose what they do in THEIR classes!!! Those are some of the facts that i think that the government shouldn't control the schools.

  • Nobody should control our classes

    Contention 1: Government regulation prevents the best and smartest kids from sticking out. And instead reduces them to the lowest common denominator, so to speak. Einstein had exactly 2 years of government-funded school, before he decided he could do better things than learn common knowledge he already knew.

    Contention 2: Parents indirectly pay for our schools, so what is the point in paying for one school only? It is more fair if your money that you pay for your child is spread out between multiple schools, so that all schools will be able to provide the same level of education as any other school.

    Contention 3: The government is paying too much for school. The amount of money spent on schools has gone from 4.5 Billion dollars to over 40 billion. If NASA had that budget, for example, we could be at mars as early as 2020. (NASA currently has a budget of about 18.4 Billion.)

    Contention 4: If our government were to stop paying for schools, our taxes would lower considerably, making for a happy population, and therefore making a more thriving economy.

    Quotes

    Quote 1: “Federalism Students are routinely taught or led to believe things
    that the state wishes them to believe and are not taught other points of
    view. For instance, students are taught that paying more in taxes is good
    and that people who object to supporting schools or the needy through
    taxation are greedy and uncaring.” -Alliance for the Separation of School
    & State (2008)


    Quote 2: Neal, PhD in public policy from George Mason University, “Cutting Federal Aid
    for K-12 Education, CATO Institute, April 21,2016, Federal control over K-12 education has risen dramatically in recent decades. Elementary and
    secondary spending under the Department of Education and its predecessor agencies rose from $4.5 billion in
    1965 to $40.2 billion in 2016”.


    Quote 3: The UDCA said, in 2017, “The US economy is holding steady because of investor
    confidence and restrained fiscal policy. New education funding
    initiatives cause economic downturn by increasing deficit spending,
    decreasing opportunities for private investment, and triggering interest
    rate hikes. US economic collapse affects the global economy and will
    cause international conflicts.”

    Quote 4: ROBINSON said, in 2015, “Current Government programs are allowing
    inequality to flourish. Millions of students are denied access to an
    excellent education. The United States continues to tolerate a
    longstanding educational opportunity gap. Today, it relegates at least ten
    million students in low-income neighborhoods and millions more
    minority students to poorly performing teachers, substandard facilities,
    and other inferior educational opportunities.”

  • The Government shouldn't be involved in schools because schools can't be as creative as they would like.

    The government tells our teachers what their supposed to do and how to do it. They can't teach things how they want to. Some teachers might have a really good idea about how to teach. They sometimes have a good way to teach kids but aren't aloud to teach their kids that way because the Federal Government says so. Parents who homeschool their kids don't get to choose what they teach them. The Federal Government doesn't even give parents a choice if they want their kid to learn something that they don't think is necessary.

Some teachers might have a really good idea about how to teach the kids in there comunity or school. Even mothers that teach there kids have to teach what the government says. The federal government dosen't even give your parents a choice for what the want to teach them.

  • Stay away from our schools!!!

    Sure, they might give us money, but that doesn't mean they get to control everything we do in the schools! The teachers don't even get to choose what they want to do in their classes. And that makes no sense at all. That is my supporting argument from me to you

  • FED doesn't deserve our trust

    Federalism Students are routinely taught that it is important for people to trust the government, and while the government should certainly work for that trust, that doesn't relieve people of the duty to trust, even when the government falls short, which it does. A LOT. The government is sucking away our rights, all while gaining more power. Soon, people all over the country will be mindless slaves, believing everything that the government says, because they haven't been taught to have their own opinion. BTW, Before government-controlled schools have much lower standards than private schools. In government-controlled schools, children learn what the government wants them to learn, not what would actually make them successful in life.

  • Open your eyes!!!

    You Guys! Are you blind? The government is obviously trying to take our rights away, one at a time. The government thinks they can tell us what to eat and what the students have the right to do. QUIT RUINING OUR LIVES!!! Also, fight against it guys, pretty soon they'll take over ALL of our rights. So open your eyes, open them wide. We'll show them Who's boss. No, I'm kidding, don't do that, but don't let them take our rights away either. We love, and have our rights, lets keep it that way.

  • The only person that should be involved with your education is yourself.

    Why are people trying to tell children and young adults what they should learn instead of what they need and/or want to learn? Also, why are kids only taught to learn what they've been taught, not question what they've been taught. Get kids' heads out of the federal gov't's pockets!
