YES! Can I get a frigg’in AMEN on a Thursday morning!
Of course the timing of all this is a little awkward, seeing as how Betsy DeVos just got sworn in after battling for it like she had to.
But, come on… this is what we need! Smaller government, and a whole new way to help drain the swamp! Abolish the Department of Education and give the power back to the States.
Think of the children….
Think of their future, our future, this nation’s future. Our success, our progression, our innovation and ability to adapt to changing times all goes back to the quality of education our future leaders receive in their youth, and with the federal government dictating what that would be, we are screwed.
Well…that’s just one opinion of course. Face it though, this is something most conservative parents will welcome with open arms, or any conservative for that matter.

“Neither Congress nor the president, through his appointees, has the constitutional authority to dictate how and what our children must learn,” Massie said in a statement about the bill, which was significantly longer than the legislation itself.
“States and local communities are best positioned to shape curricula that meet the needs of their students,” he added.
Of course, there is no need to hold our breathe either way….I don’t see the Department of Education going anywhere anytime soon, but a homeschool Mom could dream couldn’t she?
