We need a truly free market in education - with an absolute minimum of regulation & interference by governments. The U. S. DOE should be eliminated, and the money returned to the states. Parents should be given vouchers which they can spend at any public, private, charter, or church-affiliated school - treating all religions equally is hardly “establishment of A religion.” Neighbors could band together to hire teachers for home schooling.

Diversity and high-tech innovation will return. Parents, not government, are the ultimate Trustees of their children’s education.
