How much money would America save if it abolished the Federal Department of Education?
Saving money- may be better served by taking a second look at the individual districts in each state. Would schools do better without this costly layer?
Not half as much as it would cleaning house on Capital Hill and limiting the salaries and terms... Getting patriots back in office instead of a bunch of Shills for private interests.
It would save about $20 Billion per year.
In aggregate military spending (VA+DoD+DoE+"Foreign aid"), we we spend about ~$720 Billion per year. (No one knows what the CIA budget is)
This does not include the War in Afghanistan (which we are losing), which costs over $120 Billion per year.
This also does not include other military operations
The Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice's agencies combined cost over $88 Billion.
The dollar vaue seems less relevant than the purpose and effectiveness of the agency. It did not exist prior to 1979 and the quality of public education has gone down since it's creation. It has become nothing more than another beuracracy of people whom have never run a classroom attempting to dictate standards to teachers nationally in return for Federal funds. It is simply best to keep the money locally from the start and let the local states and municipalities direct their own curriculum.
Money saved would be nothing compared to the improvement in quality we would probably see. States know what their own districts need to improve, so why not let them make the decisions? If people aren't happy with the schools where they are, then they could move to the states that were doing a better job, thus creating competition which would most likely improve quality. As it is now, each state has the same crap rules and regs, and they just aren't doing the job.

Sometimes I read a ludicrous headline and I give my head a shake and then just get on with the business of living my life - at other times I need to "spill". This headline is one of those times - BP is going to pay for the cleanup? This is one of those catastrophes (man made)...

The Federal Reserve has been robbing us blind since their unconstitutional inception in 1913. It is not surprising that the average American is unaware of the world's largest and longest running scam in history. The Fed uses its powerful influence to control the media and keep the politicians...
