Have you had a nice summer? Are you almost ready for school to start? As American children are heading back to school, it might be good to talk a little about how our education system works.
Up until the 1960’s, education was the responsibility of parents, and local and state leaders. As the federal government has gotten more involved, it has led to:
- Skyrocketing costs
- Increased bureaucracy and red tape
- Oppressive regulations
- Inappropriate and ineffective standards
This 4 minute video from the Heritage Foundation explains how this affects your family.
