UPDATE: On Wednesday, Dec. 9th, one day after publication of this blog, the US Senate reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) in the form of the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA) by a vote of 85-12.
The United States Senate is about to pass the latest iteration of federal overreach in public education, following the House’s approval of the conference report last Wednesday. The latest boondoggle, entitled Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), is the newest version of President Lyndon Johnson’s 1960’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The most well known version prior to the ESSA was the 2002 No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
Great American men of letters like Russell Kirk and M.E. Bradford have written much about the contrast between those who favor human realities and those who wish to impose utopias on human society. While we are tempted to consign these considerations to the dusty shelves of aging libraries, we do so at our peril. Government utopias are phony constructs that cost taxpayers and citizens dearly; they leave in their wake decades of destruction, as history has shown us.
