Rand Paul Schools Senate Establishment � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

Let me be the first to thank Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).

Later this week, he will make some old bulls in the United States Senate very uncomfortable – and that is a good thing considering the Senate Establishment has never hesitated to expand government and spend taxpayer dollars. Senator Paul is planning to bombard a Health, Education, Labor and Pension (HELP) Committee markup with amendments — many, many amendments. His target will be the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

As Vice President Biden would say, this is “a big [freaking] deal.”

It would be the ninth reauthorization of the 1965 law, which is the largest federal law governing K thru 12 education policy. The previous reauthorization, No Child Left Behind (NCLB), cost taxpayers roughly $131 billion between 2005 and 2010. NCLB also significantly expanded the federal role in education, weakened state control and stifled innovation at the local level.

Enter Senator Paul.....
