Teachers’ Unions Hold American Children Hostage
Post Date: 2013-06-16 11:32:35 by CZ82
Teachers Unions Hold American Children Hostage Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, now famous within the political world for taking on the public sector unions said: The unions say last hired first fired; we say hire and fire based on merit. We want the best and brightest in the classroom. There is a definite difference between private sector unions and public sector unions. Many people dont recognize the difference, or even know that there is a difference at all. On one hand, you have a group of workers forming a union in order to balance out the power of their superiors. They band together so that they can make legitimate demands, without fear ...

DuPont: Newt is one of the broadest thinkers I have ever met. He's constantly three moves ahead of me. He would be a very good chess player because he sees things that the rest of us don't see. He's a broad thinker, he's a strategist, and above all, he has a passion for ideas. If you offer him an idea, he wants to twist it and turn it and pull at it and see what it's made of. He's the best thinker we've had in ...

Porcupine Stands in for Marmot on Groundhog Day By KTUU News Staff Channel 2 News 12:16 p.m. AKST, February 3, 2013 PORTAGE, Alaska Thanks to the Alaska State Legislature, Alaska celebrates Marmot Day on February 2, which is the Alaska version of Groundhog Day. This year, Snickers, a porcupine, stood in for Alaskas furry ground squirrel at a celebration in Portage at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. AWWC says, like his Punxsutawney cousin, the "prickly favorite" did not see his shadow, which means an early spring. Sen. Linda Menard, R-Wasilla, sponsored the bill in 2009 and former Governor Sarah Palin signed Marmot Day into law and it became an Alaskan ...
Congress Should be Looking at The "VALUES CLARIFICATION" CARRICULA IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS THEMSELVES Before Blaming Guns for School Shootings

Congress Should be Looking at The "VALUES CLARIFICATION" CARRICULA IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS THEMSELVES Before Blaming Guns for School Shootings A Covenantal Action Corps Report By Coral Snake Government has overlooked a very important factor in the problem with school shootings. This is the "Values Clarification" Carricula of THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS THEMSELVES. These carricula have probably done more to lower the value of human life amongst children who eventually become adults than ANY of the other factors mentioned in news reports about the recent Newtown school shooting and that includes violent video games, the availability of "assault weapons" and all the ...

Havard students get near-perfect SAT scores. These are smart, smart kids. So they shouldn't have trouble with a simple logic question, right?
Try the following puzzle:
A bat and ball cost $1.10.
The bat costs one dollar more than the ball.
How much does the ball cost?
Yet another point on how the "public" (government monopoly) schools fail our kids
Post Date: 2012-12-06 20:49:29 by jwpegler
There are 3 million jobs going begging in American today, even though 20 million people are unemployed or under-employed. Unfortunately, Americans don't have the skills to fill these jobs. This is entirely the fault of the government. The public (government monopoly) school system has failed our kids in two different ways: First, it doesn't provide the math and science background needed for the best and brightest to enter science, math, engineering, or computer science programs in college. Second, it completely fails everyone else by allowing people to slack off for three or four years in high school, taking worthless classes when they should be learning a vocational skill that ...

Secretary of Education Pushes to De-Value College Degrees

Secretary of Education Pushes to De-Value College Degrees July 14, 2012 by Giacomo No matter what the item, product, or service is, the more people that have it, the less valuable it becomes individually. Collectibles are only really valuable when there is a limited quantity of them. Some years back, baseball trading cards and Beanie Babies were all the rage, but once the market got flooded with them, values plunged and some investors lost thousands of dollars. The same is true with items like computers and cell phones. In the early days, they were expensive and often a sign of prestige to own one. Then more and more people found ways to afford them and costs of producing them dropped ...
No Child’ Law Whittled Down by White House

No Child Law Whittled Down by White House By MOTOKO RICH Published: July 6, 2012 In just five months, the Obama administration has freed schools in more than half the nation from central provisions of the No Child Left Behind education law, raising the question of whether the decade-old federal program has been essentially nullified. On Friday, the Department of Education plans to announce that it has granted waivers releasing two more states, Washington and Wisconsin, from some of the most onerous conditions of the signature Bush-era legislation. With this latest round, 26 states are now relieved from meeting the lofty and controversial goal of making all ...

Tenn. law restricting sex-ed could serve as national model Posted on Jul 5, 2012 | by John Evans NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- State legislators in Tennessee have made it official: Sex toys and graphic promotions of sexual activity are not welcome in public schools. With the signing into law of SB 3310 by Gov. Bill Haslam, public schools that teach sex education classes must emphasize abstinence, and teachers are barred from promoting "gateway sexual activity" that encourages students to sexually experiment. "We are very pleased with the passage of the Tennessee law, and we think that it could and should serve as a model for other states to follow," said Valerie Huber, ...
Public Schools Get No Confidence Vote

Public Schools Get No Confidence Vote posted on June 25, 2012 by Giacomo For those of you who attended public school in the 1960s and early 1970s, you experienced an educational system far different from that of today. In the 60s and early 70s, teachers still had authority to actually teach and discipline students. If a student turned in failing material, the teacher didnt hesitate to give little Johnny an F or even hold him back a grade. Educators believed that educating Johnny was more important than making him feel good about himself. If a student was disruptive, they were handily dealt with. If they got violent, they were often expelled from school. It wasnt uncommon ...
Expensive but Useless College Degrees in Narrcissistic Self-Awareness

Expensive but Useless College Degrees in Narrcissistic Self-Awareness Written on Monday, June 18, 2012 by David L. Goetsch Born in 1950, I grew up in an era when going to college was a privilege, not a birthright funded by the federal government. During this era, a college degree was viewed as a launching pad to a successful career. People went to college to become doctors, lawyers, engineers, architects, accountants, financiers, business leaders, and scientists. They pursued college degrees to gain an advantage over the competition in their respective professions. This is still the case for some students, but for a growing number of high school graduates, college has become nothing more ...
Boy Scouts Stick to Their Guns, Refuse to Change Policy on Gays

Boy Scouts Stick to Their Guns, Refuse to Change Policy on Gays June 9, 2012 by Tad Cronn The Boy Scouts are refusing to change their policy on not allowing openly gay people to serve in Scouting in any capacity. The media recently have been panting over the possibility that the Boy Scouts might finally fold on their stance of upholding traditional moral values as activists tried new ploys to get gays into Scouting. That gays want to change the Boy Scouts to suit themselves is nothing new. Several years ago, the Supreme Court had to weigh in on the issue and stood by the organizations right to not associate with people who dont uphold its clear values. The most recent ...
The Speech You Never Heard

The Speech You Never Heard June 7, 2012 "I think also, that general virtue is more probably to be expected and obtained from the education of youth, than from exhortations of adult persons; bad habits and vices of the mind being, like diseases of the body, more easily prevented than cured. I think moreover, that talents for the education of youth are the gift of God; and that he on whom they are bestowed, whenever a way is opened for use of them, is as strongly called as if he heard a voice from heaven..." --Benjamin Franklin Patriots, I am in New Orleans today at the World War II Museum with my favorite War II Vet, my father.

Romney calls K-12 education ‘the Civil Rights issue of our era’
Post Date: 2012-06-05 07:05:03 by CZ82
Romney calls K-12 education the Civil Rights issue of our era by David Harsanyi, June 4, 2012 With all the noise about private equity and public waste, many people missed the unveiling of Mitt Romneys education platform at the Latino Coalitions Annual Economic Summit in Washington D.C. late last month. Education, explained Romney, was the civil rights issue of our era and, like many presidential hopefuls, he declared the nations failing education system in need of dramatic reform. This contention is only partially true, of course. Government-run education is failing; and it typically fails those who are supposed to benefit the most: the poor. ...
Arabic Mandated in New York Public Schools is a Step Toward the Islamization of America

Arabic Mandated in New York Public Schools is a Step Toward the Islamization of America May 26, 2012 by Gary DeMar Im all for learning a new language, even Arabic. I have a good friend who is studying Arabic so he can debate with Muslims in their own language. When I was in high school in the 1960s, some students took Russian. It wasnt mandated. Many Europeans know several languages. English is one of the most prevalent second languages around the world. When my wife and I traveled through China last year, we ran into people from all over the world who spoke English, including many Chinese. There was no need to know how to speak Arabic. Im a little suspicious when an ...
More Money For Public Schools Is Not The Answer

More Money For Public Schools Is Not The Answer Written on Friday, May 18, 2012 by David L. Goetsch Americas public school students continue to score well below students from other developed countries on standardized tests of math, science, reading, and problem solving. Embarrassed teachers unions are blaming the poor performance of American students on budget cuts. This is nothing more than finger pointing to distract taxpayers from the real reasons for poor performance, but it is at least a well-timed if disingenuous distraction. Because of the disastrous economic policies of the Obama administration, most states have had to suffer through persistent recessionary conditions ...
U.S. Charter Schools Tied To Powerful Turkish Imam
Post Date: 2012-05-13 19:43:21 by Brian S
(CBS News) Fethullah Gulen is the Turkish Islamic cleric at the center of a popular and growing movement, with millions of disciples who follow his teachings of tolerance, interfaith dialogue, and education. Some have even started a chain of successful charter schools here in the U.S., with an emphasis on math and science. Yet Gulen himself remains shrouded in mystery. Lesley Stahl travels from Turkey to Texas to report on how the movement is spreading, and on the man behind it all. The following script is from "The Gulen Movement" which aired on May 13, 2012. Lesley Stahl is the correspondent. Shachar Bar-On, producer. Over the past decade scores of charter schools have ...

Late last night, in a shameful example of editorial cowardice, the Chronicle of Higher Education fired Naomi Schaefer Riley. Naomi is a good friend of mine, a sometimes contributor to THE WEEKLY STANDARD, and a fine writer. And the story of what happened to her is highly instructive.

Obama Mentor Wanted Americans Put In Re-Education Camps (Bill Ayers, "new way of thinking")
Post Date: 2012-05-04 20:09:16 by hondo68
Weather Underground terrorist planned to eliminate 25 million U.S. citizens in re-education camps. In light of a newly uncovered U.S. Army document that outlines plans for prisoners, including U.S. citizens, to be re-educated in detention camps, its worth reminding ourselves of the fact that Barack Obamas political mentor, Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, once called for precisely the same thing. According to former FBI agent Larry Grathwohl, who was assigned to infiltrate the Weather Undergrounds Central Committee, the organization run by Bill Ayers carried out bombings targeting the Pentagon, the State Department, as well as police stations and federal ...

that they were transferring control of the school curriculum to the federal government, said Sandra Stotsky, 21st Century Chair in Teacher Quality at the University of Arkansass Department of Education Reform, speaking at The Heritage Foundation on Tuesday. Stotsky and four other education scholars from around the nation met to discuss the Obama Administrations growing push for Common Core national education standards and why states should resist Washingtons attempt to further centralize education.

President Obama Is Working Hard to Get College Students Dependent on Government So Theyll Vote Democratic Forever April 24, 2012 by Gary DeMar President Obama is trying to buy the votes of Millennials.
