COMMENTARY BY

Jude Schwalbach is a research assistant in education policy at The Heritage Foundation.

Here we go again. Congress plans to ignore the glaring education policy errors of the past five decades—and, worse, spend even more money on them.

As policymakers place the finishing touches on the Labor-Health-Education bill—a spending measure that funds education programs at the departments of Education and Health and Human Services—Americans stand to have more of their hard-earned dollars spent on policies that don’t work.

In fact, the entire spending package encompasses $178 billion

President Barack Obama’s first education secretary, Arne Duncan, gave a speech on the 45th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, where, in 1965, state troopers beat and tear-gassed hundreds of peaceful civil rights marchers who were demanding voting rights. Later that year, as a result of widespread support across the nation, the U.S. Congress passed the Voting Rights Act. Secretary Duncan titled his speech “Crossing the Next Bridge.” Duncan told the crowd that black students “are more than three times as likely to be expelled as their white peers,” adding that

Walter Williams: University Corruption

Share

By Walter E. Williams | cnsnews

I’m thankful that increasing attention is being paid to the dire state of higher education in our country. Heather Mac Donald, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, has just published “The Diversity Delusion.” Its subtitle captures much of the book’s content: “How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture.” Part of the gender pandering at our universities is seen in the effort to satisfy the diversity-obsessed National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, each of which gives millions of dollars of grant money to universities. If universities don’t make an effort to diversify their science, technology, engineering and math (known as STEM) programs,

COMMENTARY BY

Jude Schwalbach is a member of the Young Leaders Program at The Heritage Foundation.

 

After less than 10 years in the classroom, Common Core could soon be on its way out.

The Obama administration introduced Common Core in 2010, imposing burdensome new standards and tests in an attempt to create uniform educational content across the nation. Despite loud objections from parents, teachers, school leaders, and state officials, 46 states ultimately adopted the standards due to a combination of funding carrots and regulatory sticks.

Curriculum leaders in Texas no longer want students to be taught that the battle of the Alamo was a “heroic” event in American history.

A committee of the State Board of Education hopes to eliminate the word “heroic” from the state’s curriculum because the term is “a value-charged word.”

Imagine being able to goof off while studying, earning only a minimal GPA, and then make it into an Ivy League University on the basis of winning a lottery. It would be a dream come true for millions of high school and college universities who prefer partying to working hard and studying, and it may actually come true if Harvard education professor Natasha Warikoo has her way.

Decrying “meritocracy” that enables students who work hard and earn high test scores to earn a spot in one of the country’s prestigious universities, Professor Warikoo calls for a lottery system to include anyone who earns a minimal GPA. The

An examination of the Property Tax Independence Act

Share

The following analysis of the Property Tax Independence Act, HB & SB 76 was written by Robert S. Kistler – an extremely knowledgeable and very active member of the Pennsylvania Taxpayers Cyber Coalition. The battle over property tax elimination rages on in Pennsylvania. The unfortunate but predictable side is that there is much misinformation that continues to be spread about HB/SB 76, the “Property Tax Independence Act”, despite the fact that the bill has been around for years. Some of the misinformation is born from lack of understanding the bill, the rumor mill, and half truths. However, there is also a dark side to this battle, a well planned and orchestrated intentional negative propaganda campaign with regard to the bill. With November elections nearing
