About "History of Federal Education Policy (INFO)"
This year’s resolution calls our attention to federal funding and regulations of elementary and secondary schools in the United States. It’s a topic that is often in the news and that has substantial impact on our everyday lives.
The US Constitution doesn’t mention education in its definition of the powers of the federal government, and by that silence the 10th Amendment leaves the establishment and management of educational facilities up to the States and the People. States and people (in the form of private organizations and religious groups) did, indeed, organize, fund and manage elementary and secondary education in the United States for many years without the involvement of the federal government. Arguments about devolving federal involvement in education back to the States, if any are to be made this year, must be the domain of Negatives, since the resolution only allows the Affirmative to increase federal involvement. Federal aid to local education happens because Congress finds it to be in the “general welfare” of the United States under Article I Section 8 of the Constitution.
