NO. What it shows is that the word LOCAL is used in two different ways. We have three levels of government: federal, state and local. That is one application and usage of the term LOCAL.Which shows that the majority view local government and state government separately...
As previously cited and defined by the Washington State report on education, the word local as applied in LOCAL CONTROL is also used to mean a system in which the State has authority in the area of education and then they have a network of school districts across the state which are locally run and locally controlled by elected school boards.
The word LOCAL is used in different ways in both of these examples.
This is not unusual for our English language. Consider that the word BASEBALL can mean both the round object hit with a bat as well as the over all game itself. It could refer to the business of the same name. The same word is used differently in several different contexts but which are closely related. Many other words in our language have that same property.
So perhaps the disagreement here is in how each of us is approaching this from different perspectives.
I have cited independent verifiable evidence to show that my use of the term LOCAL CONTROL is indeed apt and perfectly fine as I have used it in this thread.
