If you would like to research a specific mandate that school districts are working to repeal look up the Triboro Amendment. Here is a link to one site that is not in support of it.
The Race to the Top initiative also resulted in state unfunded mandates that are costing school districts millions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_to_the_top
These are just two of the hundreds of mandates local governments are working to repeal. View Comment
