Should the federal government be involved in education?

  • The government should be a part of education

    That way any particular religion cant find its way into the school system there are to many religions in this world and every follower thinks there religion is the right one so if you were to teach one religion would be wrong. For example lets say Catholicism is brought into education and theirs little Muslim girl this little Islamic girl has been taught that the things taught in Catholicism are bad but yet she will get in trouble if she doesn't do those things in school like praying to god

  • Don't play yourself

    Absolutely No Way! I believe that in public schools you should be able to read a bible or talk about God without getting into trouble. It makes me sad to not be able to hear that kids in public school cant even talk about here religion and faith. I dont know what our world would be like if we lost our equal rights even more

  • Federal government is necessary to ensure a proper education system is installed.

    States can be very biased to what they want.
    Religion should never be enforced onto students, educational facilities should be up to date with today's current studies rather than flawed dated studies. State can covertly install more propaganda in their books than federal government. (Texas wanted to install more "Pro"-Texas writings into their curriculum.)

    States also can let poor districts fall apart while wealthier locations thrive giving a inequality that leads to more tensions and soon Class Warfare.

    It is necessary by all means to keep education simple; raising your children to be supportive figure in society rather than uneducated. As with more technology grows, the tighter the job market gets and so by all means education must be top priority even by means to surpass military funding if needed be.

    Children of today should be encouraged to be the best minds the world has to offer and given it freely to flourish this world with achievements.

  • Teachers need to get paid what they deserve.

    Yes, we all know teacher have tenure, but if the government was involved. This law would be gone, therefore the government would get rid of all unecessary teachers that are causing our education system to mess up.
    We all know that our education system is already shit. Maybe what we need is a real change and we will slowly start seeing a difference.

  • Higher quality of education is needed.

    1. Different schools have different teaching methods and different states have different standards. This results in different academic performances in different states or even local districts. Is this a healthy education system? When you invest in something, you expect to see some sort of return. Standard testing is just a measure of how federal government measures the funds they put in. Calling this "dictatorship" is biased.
    2. Different standards cause teachers to have different attitudes towards their teaching. Having at least some regulations will force them to take their jobs more seriously. Teachers from k-12 should also refreshing their knowledge from time to time as well. Do you know some teachers are still teaching what they have learnt from 20 years ago? Come on! Knowledge is always changing!
    3. Schools in the low-income districts are often neglected by the States. Children from those districts do not have the same resources as the others. In other words, those students do not have equal opportunity to receive the education they should have. Equality is also a core value of the American culture. Don't the children from low-income families deserve a chance to receive the same education like the others? Don't they deserve to have the same chance to be successful like the others?

  • 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!

  • The federal gov't is a giant parasite feeding off of the American people making itself bigger and our country weaker in every way.

    "I think the most important factor moving us toward a secular society has been the educational factor. Our schools may not teach Johnny how to read properly, but the fact that Johnny is in school until he is sixteen tends toward the elimination of religious superstition. The average American child now acquires a high school education, and this militates against Adam and Eve and all other myths of alleged history." - P. Blanchard, "Three Cheers for Our Secular State," The Humanist

    "Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism. What can a theistic Sunday school's meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?" - Humanism: A New Religion, 1930

    "Fundamental parents have no right to indoctrinate their children in their beliefs. We are preparing their children for the year 2000 and life in a global one-world society, and those children will not fit in." - Senator Paul Hoaglund, 1984

    "Give me your four-year-olds, and in a generation I will build a socialist state." - Vladimer Lenin

  • Government need not apply here

    With the Government involved in public education they can mandate legislation such as the no kid left behind act. If they can continue to lower the required passing test scores, they are institutionally dumbing down our kids. The indoctrination is evident and our kids IQ scores and life expectancy just passed each other by.

  • The FED ruins everything it touches!

    Since the federal government took over education, students have gotten less and less knowledgeable about things they NEED, more knowledgeable about things that should never even be talked about in school, and the school system has been socially engineering children through indoctrination using activist teachers and propaganda. Parents are kept out of the equation of educating their children as much possible and they just go along with what they're told, believing the lie that the school "knows what's best" when it's patently obvious that they don't. Look at the way college students can't handle differences of opinion and they're obsessed with unhealthy ideas. A large percentage of them have to take high school remedial classes in college just to get up to where they can take the most basic of courses. Then if they (wonders upon wonders) graduate from college, they can't get a job because nobody needs people with Liberal Arts degrees so they're still living with Mommy, in debt up to their eyeballs (or their parents are...FOR NOTHING), and whining that they should have been able to waste their time in college for freaking FREE! Yeah...Keep the feds OUT! The Department of Education should be abolished and we should never look back at this disgrace for fear of repeating it all over again.

  • I don;t think it should be involved

    I don't think it should be involved because In school I have read a bunch of articles stating that if a state wants to change something if federal government was involved it would be WAY more difficult also if something is working only for one state and not for another they can change it easily.

  • No way Jose

    The government is hardly able to manage itself. The education system should be based off the specific needs of each community and the federal government has no way of knowing what each community needs and nor should they. The education system is a responsibility of the states and the federal government should stay completely out of it.

  • Don't play yourself

    Absolutely No Way! I believe that in public schools you should be able to read a bible or talk about God without getting into trouble.

  • If the government has control of our education, then they have more power over us than we realize.

    They have authority of what they want us to learn to fit their belief system. They feed us lies and teach us what they want the younger generation to learn. With this power, they are creating a generation of kids that will be easier to control and manipulate. They purposefully do this so that the people are oblivious to the truth and are more agreeable with the government's decisions because that is what they were taught to believe. So, I strongly say no because the government is controlling education and making it work for their interests and not ours. To become educated and to know the truth, we can't believe everything that we are taught and we must make our own education and beliefs.
