← Louisiana lunacy: tens of millions to be spent on faith-based education

I know that the events in Louisiana don't characterise the US as a whole, but from an Australian perspective it seems that these parts of the US belong back in the seventeenth century. Just what the hell is going on over there? I'm a teacher myself, and I pity these poor kids. The education of children is, if I may use the term, a sacred duty. These dickheads obviously don't care a damn. Recently I've been watching Ken Burns "The Civil War". The whole thing of states rights is still a problem it seems. You guys need a national mandatory curriculum.
