No. If left to the states some parts of the country would do a poor job while other parts would do a great job. With no standardization children moving from one part of the country to another would have a hard time.

Federal involvement in education has only politicized it.

If they got back to the main goal which is EDUCATION and stopped trying to be "social justice warriors". Otherwise get rid of it.

Laz ... "The main goal", which is the constitution, says that education is left to the states. Mr Carter made an unconstitutional move by creating the federal Dept of Ed, as he had no jurisdiction.

Only if we want to improve education.

Wrong, to improve results, we must abolish the unconstitutional federal Dept of Ed.

Yes return to the states what the 10th amendment dictates. Who am I, a Washingtonian, to tell Kansas how to educate their children.

Agree, every state to my knowledge already has a department of education. The right to k-12 education is not given by the federal government but the states.
