Six of the 10 Senate Democrats on the committee that will consider confirming Betsy DeVos—President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of education—attended private or parochial schools, or have children and grandchildren attending, according to information obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group.

That inconvenient fact complicates the prospects for the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers, which have vowed to defeat DeVos, a longtime school choice advocate from

Is College a Scam?

Share

 

By Natalia Castro at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Millennials are quickly realizing college is not all it’s cracked up to be, or rather, all it’s priced up to be. College was meant to assist students to enter the workforce with a competitive edge which would drive up higher employment, instead Millennials are failing to enter the labor force, often returning home to their parents with nothing but debt.

Billy Williams became social media famous for dropping out of school after his 4.0 first semester, in his Facebook post he claimed, “Yes I have dropped out after finishing my first semester (with a 4.0 GPA). And it’s one of the best choices I’ve ever made. Not because I

Free speech on campus got a little better this year

FIRST AMENDMENT: Colleges are getting better about allowing free speech, but still have a long way to go.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For years, free speech on college campuses has been waning. Some schools create “free speech zones” where the First Amendment applies, while outside of those zones students must adhere to strict rules about what they can say.

Most of what’s deemed unacceptable speech tends to coincide with what ideology a student aligns with: conservativism bad, progressivism good. That sort of thing.

In recent years, the introduction of

Could the Education Department’s Title IX overreach be nearing an end?

DUE PROCESS: Education Department overreach on Title IX might be rolled back in a Trump administration

Throughout the Obama administration (but ramping up since 2011) the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights has instilled fear at colleges and universities across the country. Terrified of negative media attention resulting from investigations – or worse, a loss of federal funding – schools have eschewed due process and tilted the playing field in favor of those who accuse others of sexual assault or harassment.

That might be coming to an end.

The current culture stems from a 2011

Obama Launches Prison School District to Improve Inmate Literacy

Share

From Judicial Watch

Funding for the nation’s struggling public schools is at an all-time low yet the Obama administration has found the resources to create a new school district in the vast prison system to improve inmate literacy. It’s part of a broader prison reform effort to help convicts reintegrate into society after serving their sentence and the timing couldn’t be worse, as the country’s public education system suffers through drastic budget cuts, dismal student performance and teacher shortages.

Nevertheless, the U.S. Secretary of Education, John B. King, appears to be more concerned with the low literacy rates of convicted felons. Last month he called for more high-quality education programs for the nation’s 1.5 million prisoners as children across the country

Public University professors Demand “Sanctuary Campus” to Shield Illegal Aliens

Share

From Judicial Watch

Comparing immigration enforcement to “fugitive slave laws,” professors at a taxpayer-funded university in south Florida are demanding that the school protect illegal aliens by creating a “sanctuary campus.” Students at colleges around the nation have made similar requests to protect undocumented classmates after president-elect Donald Trump vowed to increase deportations and reverse an Obama administration measure that shields those brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

But the Florida professors are blazing the trail as the first faculty members to officially call for campus-wide sanctuary in the aftermath of the presidential election. They work at Florida International University (FIU), a public institution with 54,000 students, more than half of them Hispanic. One of the professors, Asia Eaton, teaches

school setting

By /at Watchdog.org

In 17 out of 25 major school districts across the United States, teachers can keep tenure regardless of performance. D.C. Public Schools has taken a different route, replacing tenure with its IMPACT evaluation system.

DCPS earned a six out of 10 in a Fordham Institute report that graded 25 school districts on their ability to remove ineffective teachers. The district ranked above 18 districts, including nearby Fairfax County, Va,. and Montgomery County, Md. DCPS is one of three districts not providing teacher tenure.
