Yes, education is simply to variable between states. The USFG should install some basic guidelines that all states must follow
No, states should have the right to fully control the education system.
I just think the education system is terrible. In the south, the education system in some states allows talk of religion. Texas, which has the worst public education in America, is way behind common core. And every state has different standard testings. We need a bit more guidelines, don't you think?
The whole reason the education system is so awful is because of how centralized it is.
Teachers have very little freedom in how they are allowed to teach nor what they teach. Teachers are required to follow strict guidelines on their methods and instruction. Some things in school genuinely are pointless to learn. If the teacher is bored with a topic just as much as the students are, they should teach something more engaging or find a way to engage the students. Schools that are proven to be excelling should have less regulations and restrictions while schools that are proven to be failing should be aided further.
Let's not go states, let's go privatized education.
