Ron Paul and Rick Perry both stated that if they were elected president they would do away with the Department of Education. Some people did not, or do not, understand anyone saying such a thing. Some think we need the federal government involved in education.
I am not one of those people. Perhaps you will agree with Ron Paul and Rick Perry after you read Charles Murray’s editorial: ‘Do we need the Department of Education?’
Charles Murray is the W.H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. He has a B.A. in history from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in political science from MIT. He has written many journalistic pieces for major newspapers and has a new book entitled, Coming Apart: The State of White America. 1960-2010.
