Education activists and conservatives are outraged about the latest GOP surrender to Obama. After voters elected Republican majorities in both houses of Congress to stop the Obama administration, the GOP establishment is again preparing to stab its base in the back, this time on education.
Establishment Republicans in Congress are quietly plotting their next massive surrender to the Obama administration, a “bipartisan” education bill that solidifies federal control of schools and keeps Common Core while entrenching a dizzying array of unconstitutional “education” schemes.
Protests at the University of Missouri over alleged racial incidents are now sparking demonstrations on other campuses.
High-school sexting scandals show once again that in a values-free environment such as the public schools, immorality grows like a cancer.
Under massive pressure from parents, teachers, voters, taxpayers, and the state's top education official, the Arizona Board of Education voted overwhelmingly to kill the Obama-backed Common Core education scheme. Eventually, the state is expected to develop better state standards to replace the increasingly polarizing nationalization of K-12 schools imposed on Arizona with the help of federal bribes and bullying. At least that is the story the public is being told. In reality, though, the deeply controversial Common Core standards will remain in place, at least for now. And if the actions of other state governments provide any clue as to what might happen next, Arizona may well end up with most of Common Core intact, perhaps under a new label — unless citizens remain vigilant and engaged in the process.
