Schools are important but not government schools

April 4, 2014

In the March 17 Arizona Republic editorial “Public Schools Under Attack” by the Arizona School Administrators they opened their comments with a quote from Thomas Jefferson by emphasizing his suggestion that “a suitable education be provided for all….citizens.” It is a great quote that I fully support but Jefferson never said anything about the government providing this education. As a matter of fact, it is nowhere mentioned in our Constitution. If Jefferson or any of our founding fathers believed that education was an important role for government they would surely have said so.

If Jefferson were alive I believe that he would support dismantling the US Department of Education and getting the government, at least the Federal Government, completely out of education.
