Fixing our Education Problem – Page 1 – Bruce Bialosky – Townhall Conservative


The message starts by listing America’s ten poorest cities, based on the percentage of people living below the poverty line. It then identifies what all ten cities have in common: They have all been run by Democrats for at least 25 years. (Is anyone surprised?) Some of these cities have never once elected a Republican Mayor in over a century! What it doesn’t say is that the school systems in these cities have been run by the Democrats for the same period – in most cases much longer.

The lesson here is that you cannot fix a problem until you come to grips with its source. Most of America has lived in denial about our public education system for at least 30 years. After all, every poll says that the public believes that Democrats are better at handling the issue of education. How can this delusion persist, when the school system in every major American city is a disaster, and every single one of them is run exclusively by a Democrat machine in cahoots with their union partners?  (read more at link)

In-State Tuition For Illegal Immigrants? That’s Nuts!


This notion of in-state vs. out-of-state tuition for illegal immigrants is insane.  Why is it even a consideration?  Why are they even allowed to go to our universities, state supported schools where their tuition is already subsidized by tax payer monies?  For that matter, why are they allowed a primary and secondary education at our expense?  We don’t owe them an education if they are here illegally.  They should be deported!  I can understand the justification for giving them emergency medical aid if they need it.  It’s the humanitarian thing to do, but as soon as they are patched up or treated in whatever manner is needed, deport them.  They’re not supposed to be here!  Who doesn’t get that?

21st Century Skills Aims To Neuter America


This is an open letter to my own local Board of Education, and to all boards statewide.  Be aware of the wolf in sheep’s clothing that prowls in our midst, aiming to change America as we know it.

Dear BOE Member,

In spite of the brouhaha last fall over the Partnership For 21st Century Skills program attempting to insinuate their socialist philosophy into our education system by revising history and how it is taught in our school classrooms; and in spite of Marc Basnight’s letter to the NCDPI against the progressive program; apparently it is still alive and well, as demonstrated by the presentation to the Dare County BOE at their last meeting, as reported in an article in the recent Coastland Times.  Having not been in attendance at the meeting, I know nothing more than the sentence that was written in the news release, but apparently angry push back from the public last fall, not just locally, but statewide, did little good, as the Progressives plod onward with their agenda, shaking off our wrath like water off a duck’s back.  We shouldn’t be surprised that they wouldn’t give it up easily.  Their plot is a grand and heinous scheme to capture the minds of our youth, thereby our future, converting our free nation into a socialist machine.  We must remain vigilant and continue the fight.
