Putting control back where it belongs (the hands of the parents and

Local government, yes. Parents? Come on.
Depends. Local government, at the time, was mostly concerned with
dealing with court-ordered integration, which involved a lot of busing,
and the part of the population that was fighting it. The actual
education process took a distant third place. Second place, of course,
was the teachers' union.
We made sure out kids knew language and math (our strong subjects) but
the rest we left up to their schools. We should have just put them in
the GOOD private school, the one you had to test to get into. What did
we know? Schools were OK when we were kids.
It's not true that Lucas, in 1947, tried to get Parliament
to repeal Ohm's Law. They withdrew their efforts when they
met too much resistance.
