Government-run schooling is a monstrous crime against the nation, and always has been. The original purpose of government schools was to promote linguistic and cultural assimilation by recent immigrants. Though the rationale was always specious, the purpose seemed beyond criticism...but the rapacious Leviathan that sprang from it, which battens on America's children (and their parents' wallets) for purposes no one in his right mind could approve, is not. It's time to return education to the private sector -- ENTIRELY.

What’s the real message behind Barack Obama’s call in his State of the Union speech for taxpayer-funded “universal” preschool and his trip to a Georgia preschool last Thursday for photo ops?

It’s that the government wants to get its hands on our children even earlier.

From the time children are five or six years old up through their senior year, government schools run by leftwing teachers unions have them at least seven hours a day, five days a week during most of the year.

They use that time to teach them just enough English and math to pass standardized...
