Only in the sense that they can avoid violating any federal mandates which penalizes them in terms of their federal funding for education. The federal government inserted its claws deeply into the education process along about the time that Lyndon Johnson was building his "Great Society". The move was also influence by the Civil Rights issues of the day which were addressed in a program called "Head Start" also a Johnson influence. The thinking was that a uniform approach would create the same level of quality in the education received. In the end, that was not the case...the resulted tended to pull all schools toward a level of mediocrity where they have remained for the past 50 years getting worse than better. Along with the standardized approach also came the "Robin Hood" funding approach in which schools with dense population bases and higher property taxes had to give up a portion of their tax base to finance schools not lesser economic areas. Now, like everything else the federal government inserts itself into, the outcome is rather poor and the cost is high. Still, we have yet to have any group of politicians in Washington who have returned that control back to the states. WB
