Well, IMO, the federal government should play a very limited role in education.
It has done some useful things I'm sure, but its not their job and pumping money in isnt necessarily the solution.
Now, mind you, I think college costs should be made multiples more affordable, perhaps the federal government could do something there - but I think the feds overreach as is.

States, not local government, should pay for schools and pay teacher's salaries, as well. It seems ridiculous that city and county governments run schools and pay teachers to me, it creates so much funding differences.
