    And they’re trying to dominate the LttE, too:

    The federal government does not own our children. Yet we act as if it does by letting it decide when, how and what our children will learn. We have turned their futures over to lobbyists and bureaucrats.

    I support giving educational control back to parents who know their children better than any politician in D.C. ever will.

    The federal government has no constitutional authority to fund or control schools. Abolish the unconstitutional, wasteful Department of Education and return its functions to the states. By removing the federal subsidies that inflate costs, schools can be funded by local taxes, and parents and teachers can directly decide how to best allocate the resources.

    Allow full-time elementary and secondary teachers a $3,000 yearly tax credit, thus easing their financial burden and encouraging good teachers to stay in an underpaid profession.

    Many parents have already shown their desire to be free of federal control by either enrolling their children in private schools or homeschooling them. And students enrolled in these alternatives have consistently performed better and tested higher than those in state-run schools.

    Who is the only presidential candidate to hold these thoughts? Ron Paul.

    A $3000 tax credit for educators makes no sense if the federal government is to have no role in the education process.
