Support Grows for Abolishing the Department of Education

In the wake of the already posted unanimous resolution adopted by the National Federation of Republican women to oppose the Common Core State Standards Initiative, FOXNews reports.  Michelle Bachmann has led the charge to insert this as a centerpiece ofher plans to cut spending in Washington.  Ron Paul and Gary Johnson also want to shut down the agency.  Newt Gingrich has called for it to be radically slimmed down.  Rick Perry has long been a fierce advocate of repealing Race to the Top and protecting local control.

The education debate needs to go mainstream for Americans to understand what is going on.  It looks like the GOP primary is proving an effective platform to educate Americans about radical federal overreach on education policy.
