Why do you think state and local governments have a major role in providing important services? Why doesn't the federal government take on more of this role?
It's generally believed that local government knows the needs of its people better than the federal government.

Oh my !
First check Constitution Amendment 10.
Powers not delegated to the US gov. by the Constitution are reserved to the states or to the people (look up exact wording).
Local governments do not exist in the Constitution but States reserve powers for them.
We are a UNION of States, not an all powerful central government.
Now also think about practical problems. Would you want the government in Washington determining where your next school goes or which road to repair next?
