  • 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?

  • Standardization is essential.

    There needs to be some standard area that all students should know. Anymore than that should depend on the location of the school and the things that will help provide the students for what they need to survive in their society. No you cannot make everyone learn everything BUT there needs to be a base for their learning.

  • Currently a tenth grader, federal control for the best.

    I am currently enrolled in high school. My school is the number 1 in Colorado (public) holds a bronze in national rating. I find it funny that because there is no baseline reg. Set for schools. I grew up in kansas, the academics there were set to a different beat. The main dispute against federal control is that each state understands it's people. Students here in colorado are gang related, don't listen and get bad grades, but that's because everything is weak, school is easy to get out of. Regulating them across our nation will remove educative stereotypes, and help students learn faster. Federal control will not brainwash us to the point we listen to whatever politicians say, this is because we have too many influences outside of school. I grew up in Kansas yet I associate myself with the fbla, not the ffa. Just an inside view of education. My main opinion? Reform.

  • Education needs a baseline standard

    States can decide how much beyond the required is needed but there needs to be some standard for education, especially for states that don't seem to take education serious enough. In addition to this those states that fail to give proper funding to education are supported by federal funds for education.

  • Education Should Be Consistent

    I believe the federal government should be involved in education because we need an entity over the entire public school system to set curriculum's. I think this is very important because we need to have a consistent curriculum for each grade across the country. Everyone deserves an education and some children receive more or less.

  • Yes there should be some regulation

    The government should be involved in education, because education needs to be standardized. If the federal government is not involved, you may end up with different states teaching different things and beliefs. I feel if it is not standardized we may end up with education like religion everyone will have their own opinion on what the kids should be taught.

  • Communities and states can take care of their own

    State governments, cities and towns do not have the same pressures that the federal government does as far as politics are concerned. Simply stated governments may impose certain lessons due to political pressures, and diplomatic needs. In a simple and hypothetical instance, imagine that the US government values its relation with Turkey more than teaching the young kids about the massacre, or genocide against the Armenians that were carried in 1915, which Turkey denies to this day. Or more, what if the US government chooses to abstain from teaching schools from the enforced relocation of Japanese Americans during world war 2? The point of education is for students to learn the beautiful and ugliness of history and make sense of it themselves, they shouldn't be deprived of that opportunity due to diplomatical reasons that the US government has to adhere.

  • Absolutely no way

    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.

  • Fed already in too much of our state's business

    The state and local governments are much more intimate with what goes on in their own 'backyards' than the federal gov't will ever be. State who can manage their own systems of education well will in turn attract more businesses to themselves and therefore more families creating a healthy system of competitiveness between surrounding states.

  • It's simple – Locals do it better

    It is simple; the federal government should not be involved in local public education (unless you count the District of Columbia). Town and states can handle these issues better than any politicians in Washington, and is but a step towards government control of Socialism, which is simply something that we cannot afford.

  • State Over Federal

    Rather than the federal government being involved, I believe the state government should be. If this country were being run the way it was intended to be then the people of each state could vote on the type of education they wanted their kids to be provided with. Also, it is much more practical for the state to be involved because the federal government has much bigger, more important things to be dealing with.

  • 10th amendment :)

    10 amendment. That is all.

    After finishing my supporting argument I was informed I needed more words. I don't need more words, but apparently it's required. So if you voted yes, please go read the constitution. The federal governments job is not to babysit us, to provide us money, food, clothing, housing, education or student loans. Very simple.

  • No Religion in Schools

    No religion in Schools was caused by the government. But let's not just base this on religion. The culture of my generation is based on us. Not education. But that's not all of us, there are some bright students who really have great potential and are creating a future for themselves within the classrooms of public school. If we had Religion in school, the standpoints on school would be based on logos, meaning logic. Government being in school isn't logical, they're job is to protect us not educate us. And to add to that, why would we want a group of leaders who can't even be completely honest about what is happening today teaching in schools.

  • Standardized Imposition is helping anyone

    Federally imposed standards, assessment and systems spend money frivolously when states already have working systems in place. Students learn differently, federal standards create a classroom that had no flexibility- a teacher cannot reassess where her students aren't hitting the mark...If it's not on the assessment then forget about it! Federal standards hurt education.

  • States Rights over Federal Control

    The constitution gives the Federal Government no authority over education. Federal involvement only increases costs by duplicating the state systems already in place. The states are perfectly capable of running their own educational system without the Feds involvement. Money saved by eliminating federal involvement could be better spent on teacher salaries and expanded programs (such as how to balance a check book rather than how to apply for public assistance).
