All states/localities collect taxes for the education of the kids. You think the feds would do a better job of it?

I think I'd rather see that at a federal level. If only that the money SHOULD be more equitably distributed. The funding to teach kids shouldn't be dependent on local resources. For example, IIRC, some "senior communities" have been able to excuse themselves from such taxes because no schools reside in their tax district.

But whether the feds could do a better job overall? Probably not.

And COL differences would complicate things. As they do for all forms of national funding.
