Under the Constitution, the states are technically superior to the federal government. They’re sovereign under the “equal footing” doctrine and have the legal power to refuse to engage in unconstitutional programs.
For instance, most states only get about 10 percent of their education budget from the feds—but are almost completely subservient to Department of Education dictates. Why not forgo the measly 10 percent in exchange for a return to local control over all public education? America is losing its youth in the public schools. Every patriotic parent knows that.
This would give parents more control over their children’s education and restore citizen’s control over their own government. Is this worth 10 percent of your state’s education budget?
If the free states are willing to stand against federal government overreach they must also be prepared to forgo unconstitutional federal money.
A thorough Republic Review audit would soon return power to the state legislatures—where it belongs

It is my understanding that as part of the Minnesota Constitution, Minnesota is required to provide public education for children. I would like to see this requirement removed. I believe government should not be involved with the education of children at any level. The responsibility of educating children belongs primarily with parents/caretakers.
