I completely hate the fact that the states and the feds feel the need to make laws regarding our education. The truth is, they don't need to. This is one of those matters where the government need not stick its nose into.
If I ran in a state legislature, I would propose that: 1) the state's constitution be amended to ban any regulation of a minor's education and 2) all public schools be sold. Competition will drive tuition prices down, and those who don't have kids in public school won't be forced to fund the education of those who do.
