    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Ouch. I knew it was bad but wowzee. We could pay off China in a couple of years by defunding "Education" at the federal level. We can start with that dump known as D.C.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    Reality is half or more of education spending doesn't even make it to the classroom. It's spend on administration. Administration that would not be needed if schools did not have to jump through federal department of education hoops and the national teachers unions were disbanded.

    Anyhow - SHARE! People need to be made aware. :)

    I believe you meant "Spent?" :p

    I was a part of this mess in the early 90's. The Federal govt has no business being into education. This needs to be eliminated ASAP.
