South Carolina education ranked last in US by conservative group

The conservative American Legislative Exchange Council has given Jim DeMint's South Carolina the lowest report card ranking in the US for education. See for yourself:

On his Senate website DeMint acknowledges: "In South Carolina, the drop out rates are dismal. More than 25 percent of our students do not make it to graduation"

And yet in an interview with David Brody on CBN he calls for the next President to dismantle the US Department of Education:

"The next President is going to have to tell Americans the hard truth that the federal government has got to do less rather than more. That President has got to figure out how to dismantle the Department of Education and move the power back to the states..."

Why? So the rest of the states can follow South Carolina's failed example in education?
