The way to crush the middle class is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation. – Vladimir Lenin

Governor Christie shows us just what a mess the federal education bureaucracy has become

Posted by iusbvision on August 26, 2010

Ok seriously. How many federal employees does it take to request and deal with these reports that are over a foot thick and literally involve miles of paper? On the other side think of the amount of state employees that have to be hired to put it together… the expense must be staggering. And people wonder why public education is so expensive and doesn’t do a very good job.

How can people keep the elected officials and the bureaucrats accountable when average folks have no time to deal with reports that are a foot thick? ..exactly, they can’t keep them accountable; this effectively keeps your local education administrators working for the feds at the Department of Education. They are busy giving the DoE what it wants, not giving you what you want for your kids.

Government bureaucracies like this are so big and convoluted that they cannot be reformed. The whole machine needs to be tossed out and a lean and simple one needs to take its place. Either that or privatize because the folks are not getting their money’s worth.
