America has many critical issues. Perhaps no part of America is more broken than our public education. But education is simply not on the table in the 2012 Presidential or Congressional election. Education is on the table in States and local communities. So far the only answer offered to the mess is the wrong answer—more money.
It is clear a national discussion must happen no later than 1914. This must lead to total Federal divestiture in education. No cause has been close to the Federal takeover of education in the late 1970’s in destroying a once fine public education system. Our 2012 Liberty Listers must possess the character to tackle this mess when it comes—and it will.
