This month, the Council on Foreign Relations issued a report calling in the name of national security for national curriculum-content standards on science, civics, foreign languages, technology, creativity, and problem-solving – for elementary and secondary education.

The Council on Foreign Relations calls for the U.S. Defense Department to evaluate and “periodically” review the new national curriculum standards in science, civics, foreign languages, technology, creativity, and problem-solving. It wants to add federally-run accountability in the form of an annual U.S. Department of Education audit of K-12 public education, to be done in collaboration with the Departments of Defense and State and the U.S. intelligence agencies.

if you save $50/week from birth on, you can fund a private education for your children.

if you can't do that well then you're at the mercy of public education.

just circumvent it that's all. cheers

I'd have no problem with this if the DoD would be willing to kick some of its massively bloated budget to the states for education? What, they have no interest in doing so? Then tell them to go pound salt! This is a state's issue.
