President Donald Trump, acting on his own can easily incapacitate AFFH until incoming Secretary Ben Carson can coordinate with Congress to fully eliminate the threat. Even if Dr. Carson's confirmation takes months!
Placing government in its proper perspective and teaching our children why property and freedom are inseparable, are the first steps in clearing their minds of the cultural swamp.
In November, 1992, following the election of Bill Clinton, Marc Tucker, president of the National Center for Education and the Economy (NCEE) wrote an 18-page letter to Hillary Clinton. He excitedly outlined the opportunity the Clintons now had to “remold the entire American system…” Today, the proposal Tucker made to Hillary Clinton that fateful day is now completely in place.
Tom DeWeese channels Any Rand and Victor Hugo in this searing indictment of how the liberal establishment has created a dictatorial federal education system that has been transformed from teaching basic academics into one that focuses on controlling and remolding children’s minds.
Memo to the rest of the planet: Stop panicking over the victory of Donald Trump. His “America First” agenda is not about abandoning the free world. If anything, it is about saving the free world—from itself.
Mr. Trump clearly has tapped a fighter, and education reformers are thrilled. Mr. Obama and his Education Department supported charter schools but not vouchers. Ms. DeVos embraces school choice writ large, and states interested in expanding educational options for low-income families will proceed knowing that Washington has their back.
Like Atlas Shrugged and the Left Behind series Tom DeWeese's ERASE presents a fictional path through a dystopian future. However, in ERASE every single policy presented in the book, from the use of technology to change our culture; to the use of the public school classrooms to eliminate true knowledge; to the destruction of Christianity in a drive to meld all religions into one powerful tool for government, is all true and happening at this very moment.
If you take Jeb Bush’s policies and record on spending, education and amnesty for illegal aliens and add-in John McCain’s policies and record on amnesty for illegal aliens, bringing Muslims to America and engaging in endless and inconclusive adventures in the Middle East, and then add a dash of support for the Obama and Hillary Clinton disasters in Libya and Syria, plus a strong dose of their views on amnesty and funding left-wing racist organizations, you don’t get a limited government constitutional conservative – what you get is Marco Rubio – Jeb Bush, without the integrity and good manners.
A Breitbart News investigation reveals that mainstream media outlets incorrectly reported a key detail in the story of the 9th grade World Geography teacher in Virginia who sparked a national controversy over a “calligraphy lesson” that required students to hand copy the Arabic characters that comprise the shahada, the Islamic statement of faith.
Hundreds of parents from across the county and the state of Tennessee gathered October 20 at a town hall meeting in Sparta, Tennessee sponsored by White County Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination, “to continue efforts to inform and engage the community about the pro-Islamic textbooks and materials being forced upon teachers and students by the White County School Board.” Read on to learn more about their fight against the forced Islamization of America's public school students.
What frame of reference could younger Americans possibly have? Patriotism, nationalism - even American citizenship are taboo in today's school curriculum. Globalism, diversity, and political correctness trump real history, sound economics, and science and the Founding Fathers are simply old, dead slave-owning white guys.
In their "free" college plans Bush and Clinton are competing for the same voters; millennials who made poor choices and their indulgent parents who enabled them and are now stuck with the bill. Most importantly, Bush and Clinton are competing for the support of the same corporate interests who favor Common Core and its focus on producing compliant workers, instead of citizens who have the information and thinking skills to actively participate in the civic life of a republic.
The larger issue is why on earth the federal government should be involved with this. We have fifty states and each of them has a college system and community college system. As the federal government’s involvement in funding education has increased, so has college tuition. It seems like this would only make college more unaffordable.
Liberals deploy the same old tactics to shoot down any attempts to curtail bad federal laws.
“The White House Summit on Early Education will unveil nearly $1 billion in new “investments” to “expand access to high-quality early childhood education to every child in America” from “birth and continuing to age 5.” Now that's government overreach.
19 states have made significant efforts to push back against Common Core. It's not too late for Iowa to reject Iowa Core and restore the state’s education system to one that is by Iowans, for Iowans.
A majority of people interviewed tell pollsters they’ve actually heard of Common Core, four years after bureaucrats signed our kids onto this complete overhaul of U.S. education. Why do 62% of parents think it’s a bad idea? For one, they can count. But their kids can’t.
Mike Gonzalez, a Senior Fellow of the Heritage Foundation and former Bush administration official, said that conservatives can reverse the trend of Hispanics' lopsided support for Democrats by endorsing policies of education choice, family values, and financial freedom.
More than 37,000 children unaccompanied by parents are estimated to have crossed our southern border this year adding at least $4.74 billion to the burden on America's taxpayers.
Repubs. are hoping that a bitter education fight in CA will convince Asian Americans to give the party another chance. A vocal segment of the CA Asian community teamed with conservative activists to block a proposed constitutional amendment that would bring affirmative action back to public universities.
