Reasons the Government Should Not Be Involved In Education
* Government schooling stands in direct oppostition to the liberty this country was built on.
*It discourages individuality, innovation, curiosity, creativity and overall excellence
*In it's efforts to create equality and because of its unwieldy bureaucratic nature, government schooling reduces most children to a lowest common denominator, denying kids true opportunities to soar.
*To teach just the facts means to remove anything open to controversy, which can't be done outside dates, times, places, and facts that are meaningless without deeper discussion.
For years the federal government's role in education has increased but this increase in control has failed to improve outcomes for America's children. States were offered incentives to adopt the Common Core Standards. "The national standards are unlikely to increase academic achievement, but they do pose a significant cost to taxpayers and further remove parents from decisions about what their children are taught." This control over what is taught in schools takes control from the states, teachers and parents who are the closest individuals to the local community and it's needs.

*The governments involvement makes children victims of political change, special interests, researchers, unions and social reformers.
*Students are taught what to believe and not other points of views.
*The children are stressed because they are tested, graded and judged by institutions.
*Children are denied the type of education they deserve
