    Great history lesson of George Bush. What has our commander done to reverse the course?

    We hold the worlds record for education funding. Most students don't go to college, and half of the ones who do, need remedial classes. We've transformed into a nation of beggars and whiners. We need to import foreign people to fill our college enrollment and take our technical jobs.

    Our education system is the worlds biggest scam.

    The Utah State Legislature is smart enough to realize that it is irresponsible to spend money you don't have. Sooner or later states that max out their credit cards have to pay the price. People who understand 'interest' earn it while people that don't understand 'interest' pay it.

    How is that working for our children in Utah? Our state legislature wants to "starve the beast".

    Education needs to return to being a state responsibility. We should not have decisions made on the national level. It's the attempt to nationalize education that has gotten our country into our current mess.

    NCLB should be repealed, and to keep illegal aliens and their children out of our public schools and education system unless they pay for it themselves. The NCLB was specifically created and enacted to encourage and feed illegal aliens with false hopes and false ideas about being Americans.

    The NCLB has been the most expensive and most non productive plan to educate the american people. It is a license to loot the schools and taxpayers.
