La La Land Congress Wants To Give Billions To Public Schools To Stay Closed

Joy Pullman, The Federalist

It’s an indictment of Republican leadership that President Trump, who like most businessmen knows nearly nothing about education, still has better political instincts on this. He might not get that American education is about self government, but he does get that parents across the political spectrum know their kids’ schooling can’t sustain another huge disruption. He’s on their side. Republicans should be too. If Congress screws this up, like it usually does, states need to lead during this emergency by immediately converting their systems to education savings accounts. This will allow every parent to bypass the bureaucracy.

'Pocahontas' is a contemptuous liar and patronizing hypocrite

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

“As a white woman,” she said during a campaign appearance in Atlanta, as school choice activists in the crowd began shouting protests, “I will never fully understand the discrimination, the pain, the harm that black Americans have experienced just because of the color of their skin.” But, she failed to add during that particular event, she has spent a lifetime telling everyone about all the woes of being discriminated against for being American Indian. Which also turned out to be a lie. Just wait until the good folks down in Atlanta find out Ms. Warren took advantage herself a program at Harvard designed for the descendants of actual enslaved Americans to remedy historical disadvantages. I wonder whose spot she took?

Parental Nightmares in Public Schools

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Public schools are reopening for business across America, meaning it's time to get back to reading, writing, arithmetic ... and revolution. As usual in matters such as these, California is leading the way on pushing parents to accept transgenderisms. This growing gender-bending orthodoxy is what Pope Benedict called the "dictatorship of relativism," or, if you prefer, "the tyranny of tolerance." Dissent — even from parents — is being condemned as bigotry, cruelty and hate speech. This will not stop until the nuclear family is destroyed. Or until parents stand up as one and declare a commitment to destroy this movement.

Conservative Action Project: Conservatives Oppose Legislation that Undermines Women And People of Faith

Conservatives are united in strong opposition to the Democrat-sponsored “Equality Act” and the “Fairness for All Act.” The titles of these bills belie their consequences, which will undermine parental rights, and the pro-life and conscience rights of medical professionals, make environments inherently unfair, unequal, and unsafe for women and curtail religious freedom for both religious organizations and people of faith.

How Liberal Transgender Ideology Has Warped The Right To Privacy

According to transgender ideology, now affirmed by a federal judge, you have no right to visual bodily privacy. Your nakedness, long believed, next to your thoughts, to be the ultimate private realm is no longer private and your “visual bodily privacy” must now give way to the demands of transgender ideology.

Liberate America From Public Schools

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Parents who sent their children to Catholic and other private schools paid twice: once for the public schools with their taxes and once for the private school with their tuition. But many parents who sent their children to public schools also got a bad deal — because their child got a bad education. States should take every penny they now spend on the public schools and give it to parents in the form of a voucher that carries just one requirement: Educate your child where you see fit.

Dumping More Money into Public Schools Won’t Create Better Education

Daniel Mitchell, CNS News

So perhaps the problem is the way the money is getting spent, not the amount. We need to break up government school monopolies and harness the power of the market by giving parents and students genuine school choice. For what it’s worth, there’s strong evidence that choice produces good outcomes in the limited instances where it is allowed in the United States.

The Mental Dismemberment of Children: Part Two

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.

The Mental Dismemberment of Children: Part One

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.

Obama To Issue Public School Transgender Decree Today

Caleb Howe, RedState

Bypassing the people, and the states, and the courts, President Obama is once again exercising executive authority to enforce his will and a leftist vision on America. Not under threat of law, but threat of cut funding. The President will issue a “decree” ordering all public schools in the country to allow “transgender students” to use the bathroom and locker room of their choice.

Ebola and Enterovirus: More American Blood On Obama’s Hands

Information about the public health threat caused by the Obama open borders policy is slowly leaking out.  And it is leaking out because the Obama administration can no longer cover-up the body count, especially among children.

Illegal Alien Disaster Awaiting Your School District

Obama's open borders policy could cause a disaster when school starts. Local officials are not being told how many illegal alien children are being released in their school districts. No one knows whether these children have had any immunizations, how old they are, or how long they will stay.
