"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

The sad thing is that at least 50% of the employees in my state's Department of Education, at least those stationed in the state capital, are non-essential. But the tax dollars keep flowing.

Sadly that same thing is true even here in the GREAT state of Texas!

The dept of education is not needed and never was education is a state matter. You are all right about there being way to many administrators in education depts across this nation they abuse the taxpayers and we bend over and let them.

I can see the sense in having a VERY small federal Dept. Education which ensures that a 4.0 GPA in California is of the same level as a 4.0 in Illinois, for example. That is it though.

We did fine without an federal education dept for many many many years we don't need it. In fact we did better without one back then our students at least on the most part graduated knowing how to read.
