Since it's creation in 1979, education has plummeted in the USA under the Department of Education. Im not saying that the Federal Government should help to fund things, but how many straws should be attached to that funding?
I personally know more teachers than not that feel that its a near impossible situation to teach these days, so many rules and tests and nonsense. Throw in the issues with the unions and the states, and we have a royal disaster.
So what would be a better environment for your kid to learn? A teacher who is heavily regulated, paid like shit, and forced to go by the book? Or a teacher who is simply able to get a core content package and then decide how to teach. Able to go off the beaten path. Not forced to preach memorize and recite, over and over and over and over?
Education is the key. It has always been the key. So what the fuck happened here in America?
