No Child Left Behind
(You can’t solve a problem by throwing money at it, unless the problem is lack of funds)
Ronald Reagan promised 2 big things. First, Local school boards built this nation so we must get big government out of local school issues. Second, National Defense is the primary responsibility of Federal government so America’s military must be increased.
Reagan then stripped the federal education budget leavening states to scramble for funds to support education. This problem persists to this date.
Reagan then diverted the education funds to a $1 trillion peace time military buildup that we are still paying for.
Every effort by Bill Clinton to help education was obstructed by congress.
The next president from Reagan’s party completely reversed Reagan’s position by dictating from Washington what local school boards must do.
Local School Boards still do not have the funds to improve education. Now they don’t have the freedom to address their communities issues.
