NM Applies for No Child Left Behind Waiver

From currentargus.com -The U.S. Department of Education has announced that 11 states — New Mexico among them — have formally submitted requests for waivers from key provisions of the No Child Left Behind law.  The states submitted to the Education Department curriculums and plans catered to their localities in exchange for flexibility from federal education mandates. In September, President Barack Obama said that states wanting relief from the Bush-Era No Child Left Behind Law could apply for a waiver from the law's tough-to-meet requirements for student achievement in reading and math.  More News New Mexico

You gotta love it. Apply for a waiver froma program that is unconstitutional to begin with. This is another of the myriad of reasons we are in deep doo-doo. People are just too stupid to understand that the feds have no authority over education. The courts stated this in the 19th century. But those who ignore history...well you know.

It really is about the money, which is also unconstitutional. The feds can't spend money on education, they were not granted power over education so it is not one of the areas where they can lawfully spend. See John Marshall's opinions on this.

But greed gets most people. Too bad. The love of money is the root of all evil and those who will allow the government to subject them to all kinds of unconstitutional rules for a paltry few bucks are proving that they are all evil.
