After 28 years as a high school teacher followed by 17 years in Congress, Rep. Rob Bishop was asked Wednesday what the proper federal role should be in Utah’s public schools.
“None,” the Republican said. “Don’t trust us, don’t deal with us, tell us to go to hell.”
He called for scrapping rigid federal rules — and even local top-down-control by school boards and state lawmakers — to allow teachers and parents freedom to be creative and tailor teaching to meet the needs of individual children.
