I hope that Dr. Kanter will carefully read the Federal Constitution and note that the words "education" and "schools" are not therein. Also Amendment X says that if it is not in the Constitution it is not a federal issue, it is "left to the states and to the people." Public schools should be run by state and local governments, without federal control or federal money. Dr. Kanter should gently phase out federal activity regarding our public schools.
