Tea Baggers Say "No Federal Role in Education"

It's true. I heard a Tea Party activist say the feds have no role in education; should be a state function only.

OK, in that case, I'd like to see the elected Teabagger turn back the money that Obama is proposing to direct to the states.

President Barack Obama will offer $900 million in grants to states and school districts to turn around low-performing schools ...

When you consider that the $900 million would go very far in helping state and local governments, help maintain jobs prevent further economic stagnation, and only equates to maybe a week of the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, it gives a little perspective to the often simplistic views of the Tea Party hierarchy.

The wealthy and corporate puppetmasters of the teabaggers want federal education spending diverted to them.
