People in the far, far, far eastern part of the US (read "inside the Beltway") arrogantly believe they, and only they, know what is best for student education throughout the entire country. Many know nothing about education, not even what goes on in their kids' schools. They have absolutely no reason and no logic when determining educational standards. Every time you people pass a law, you use it to penalize those who do not agree with you, and you create another huge group of criminals. Except for legislation and impeaching the current White House resident for fiscal, political, and other forms of treason, and for intentionally undermining the Constitution and citizens' security, why don't you all take a break for about 3-5 years?
