To comment, I would need to know which level of government has responsibility for education.
In Canada, the provinces have jurisdiction over education and are VERY hostile to federal encroachment into their jurisdiction.
I thought Conservatives were really into the federal government keeping their hands out of State's business.
this is another of those situations where I cannot figure out the fundamental worldview that informs these opinions. If it were well thought out I don't see how a thoughtful conservative could even make the original proposition.
If you can propose something so inconsistent with your most fundamental beliefs - how honestly do you believe them - or rather how well have you thought it out?
Do you just "go by gut" on an issue by issue basis without need of a consistent philosophy?
It is the the very quintessence of irrationality.
