There are political stances regarding the benefits/detriments of the Federal Dept of Education. Many believe this extremely expensive and influential department is not worth the billions of dollars that are spent on it due not only to its ineffective academic education but also to its preponderance of incidents of children who are forced to attend, being abused in one way or another among other reasons. This is an example of one of them that we read about on a daily basis. Do you have an opinion?

I blame Obama - he could have defunded the Department of Education.

OK, not really. But it is extreme. Any parent would rightfully complain.

Another reason to never trust teachers or those evil books they want you to read.
