DeVos: Great Pick For Education Secretary

December 9, 2016 by


By Star Parker ~ For those with the least power, the poor, parents are totally locked into failing schools controlled by bureaucrats and unions. If the teachers unions are outraged by Donald Trump’s selection of Betsy DeVos as the new secretary of education, our president-elect must have made a good choice. The two major unions […]

The New Christian Black Leadership

July 21, 2016 by


By Star Parker ~ All eyes should be on Florida to see the seeds of change in black America. The issue is school choice and the nation’s largest private school choice scholarship program, the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, enacted in Florida in 2001 under Gov. Jeb Bush. Students receive scholarships to attend the school of […]

We Must Break Teachers Unions, Get School Choice

August 5, 2015 by


By Star Parker ~ By now, a good portion of America knows that Planned Parenthood engages in trafficking of organs obtained from the unborn infants they destroy in their abortion industry. Planned Parenthood’s director of medical research, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, was captured on tape describing, in a most matter-of-fact way, these gruesome activities as she […]

June 25, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ It’s vacation time for the nation’s school kids and, while they play, states are beginning to push back against the latest effort of the federal government to exert total control over the nation’s schools; Common Core, whose curriculum standards and content rapidly revealed it to be a nightmare. As I frequently […]

Democrats’ Failure Factories

January 24, 2014 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ Teachers unions supply the Democratic Party with money and foot soldiers. But if Democrats intend to make income inequality their issue in 2014 and 2016, they will have to give up their slavish devotion to these unions, which deny inner-city kids a shot at a quality education and an escape […]

Chicago Strike Tells Us Answer is School Choice

September 20, 2012 by


By Star Parker ~ It says something about today’s public education reality that the two sides in the teachers’ union dispute in Chicago are the union and the mayor. Allegedly, the point of schools is to educate children. But which side in this dispute has sole interest in children and their parents? The answer, of […]

Useless, Costly Teacher’s Unions

September 17, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ As I close in on age 75 I can still tell you the names of most of my teachers from elementary school on up through senior high. Miss Kenniston was my first grade teacher. I was madly in love with Miss Ward in fourth grade. It was the 1940s and 50s. […]

“A” Is for Agitation: Radical Chicago Teachers on Parade

September 15, 2012 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis walks, talks and barks like a rootsy Occupy Wall Street activist. But this Big Labor loudmouth who’s leading the abandonment of nearly 400,000 schoolchildren in the Windy City is just another power-grabbing union fat cat. Instead of academic excellence, she rails about “social justice.” Instead […]

Are Americans Stupid?

June 4, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The most common opinion I hear is that “Americans are stupid.” I think it would be more accurate to say they are often ignorant of things educated people are expected to know. Most certainly much of the news media leaves them uninformed or misinformed and our educational system—K through 12—has been […]

Postcard from London: Wisconsin on the Thames

July 2, 2011 by


By Michelle Malkin LONDON — Big Labor looks the same wherever you go: petulant, irrational and wholly aggrieved beyond its means. I’m here on vacation with family as some 750,000 public-sector employees strike in protest over modest pension reform proposals. It’s a taste of Wisconsin on the Thames. U.K. government teachers are just as shameless […]

If I Were Dictator (Part 10)

June 28, 2011 by


By Marlin6 On 02/05/2008, I authored a post “Benevolent Dictators Make Good Government”. Examples are King David – Israel – (1010 BC –970 B.C.) in ancient times and General Douglas McArthur – Japan – (1945 –1947) in modern times. I started musing about what I would do if I were absolute dictator of the United […]

Our Failing Public Schools

September 1, 2010 by


By Paul HollrahThere is an old adage which says that man exists in a continuum. He goes from bondage to faith, from faith to hope, from hope to courage, from courage to freedom, from freedom to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to dependency, and from dependency back to bondage.  The original author of […]

From Those Wonderful Folks Who Brought You Detroit, MI …

January 12, 2010 by


By Carter Clews If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video – at least some videos – may easily be worth several million. So, here’s a picture that’s worth about 500,000 words – roughly the number of words in the Senate health care bill – depicting what some 60% of AmerAicans fear may […]

Education Bail Out, Or Is It?

February 6, 2009 by


BAILING THE FAILING Tom McLaughlin Similarities between federal government “helping” the economy and “helping” public education haunt me. Government bails out failing businesses now the same way it’s been bailing out failing students and failing schools. Will Democrat Big Government fix our economy? I’ll answer that question by asking another: Has it fixed public schools? […]

Education Or Indoctrination

January 30, 2009 by


EDUCATION AND INDOCTRINATION CANNOT CO-EXIST Gabriel Garnica, Esq. As liberals everywhere light cigarettes in the afterglow of their inauguration paradise, sane Americans with queasy stomachs can focus their attention on the many areas where the left’s fingerprints look more like infantile graffiti than any sign of constructive or rational achievement. Clearly, education is one of […]
