No other way than to dismantle the Dept of Education, really? I understand that Federal and State standardized testing is restrictive and inhibits creativity in the classroom, but to say that there is absolutely no place seems (to me) more ideological than practical.

I want educators to have the ability to teach kids and enable them to learn critical thinking, rather than teach a rote test, but a large amount of a curriculum is still common and coordination and cooperation yields benefits. It's unreasonable to expect school districts alone to conduct that lateral cooperation across the nation and I think that enabling that communication could be a key role for a Dept of Education.
