taunting. It's very tiring and not conducive to discussion. :(

What ethical questions exactly do you want me to answer?

I know how schools are funded, without going to Wikipedia(which I find to be ill-suited and unreliable in many instances and refuse to use, or let my children use for research). Yes, I realize that local and state funds are "included" in the running of my local public school. I don't object to that. I can easily call my local school board member, or even my state senator or representative with concerns about curriculum and spending within my district. I object to large departmental oversight by a huge beaurocratic web which knows nothing about my local area and what we parents want our children taught, but is eager to suck up my tax money to pay for their administrative expenses! How does that help educate a child?

Local funding--with a set amount of $ following each individual student(similar to a voucher system, but on a state or local level) would ensure that the children are educated more efficiently. You're worried about bigotry and inequality? Has this current system fixed that? No- you admitted yourself that society won't get any better, but it merely shifts its attention to marginalize another group. This will continue to happen whether we have a federally-funded Department of Education overseeing everything or not. Difference is, it's a whole lot more economical, and better for the kids if we fund and oversee locally as opposed to nationally. You are fond of citing studies that show America's ranking among other nations slipping when it comes to education. Has this been *since* we've nationalized it? Has America's ranking gone up, or down, because of Federal oversight of education?
