Education Pandemonium: Schooling in the Age of COVID-19 (Part 3)

Government is supposed to ensure that everybody can access an education, but it also goes one step further, and it provides that education, what we call “public schools”.

Most authority over education is at the state and local levels. The federal government has only gotten significantly involved in education in the last 50 or 60 years, and it has no constitutional authority to govern an education.

The Constitution gives the federal government specific enumerated powers, those are the only ones it has, and nowhere among those will you see education.
