States must act to nullify unconstitutional federal laws in order to preserve America’s Republican, federal form of government. The American Conservative quotes Ron Miller’s opposition to federal inducements (money) that force states to adopt centralized policies.
“One vital goal of Vermont independence,” writes Ron Miller, a founder of the “holistic education” movement, “is an educational culture that respects and encourages learning on a human scale, that supports caring and loving communities of learning.” But it runs up against “authoritarian educational policy” and federal “No Child Left Behind” and “Race to the Top” requirements. “National educational policy is one more reason why we need to challenge the burgeoning power of the American empire,” he writes. “We ought to decline the Federal government’s inducements to participate in any ‘race to the top’.”
