“Hillary Clinton found at the rotten center of the Common Core national standards initiative”

Share

by Bob Kellogg at EAGnews.org

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A veteran educator says parents can thank Hillary Clinton for the Common Core national standards that have been thrust upon schools across the country.

Even though most people probably believe that Common Core was developed during President Barack Obama’s term in office, the foundation of the initiative goes all the way back to the 1980s, reports veteran educator and now-commentator Donna Garner.

Back then, she tells EAGnews Hillary Clinton worked with other left-leaning education reformers such as Marc Tucker of the National Committee on Education and the Economy (NCEE), Ira Magaziner and then-Gov. Mario Cuomo, known

Government Unions

Government Unions

Dear CF Friend,

Government unions love to present themselves as champions of democracy.But their walk is far different from their talk.

Last week, National Review Online published a commentary by CF’s James Paul explaining how big city teachers’ unions are often some of the most undemocratic special interests in public life.

Consider: the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers (which was recently sued for pulling “ghost teachers” out of the classroom to do union work while on the public payroll) has not allowed teachers to vote on whether they want union representation in 50 years!

In fact, only one Philadelphia School District employee remains, a librarian, who participated in the last such election in 1965.

East Penn School Board President Alan Earnshaw admits “We do know what we are voting on” and why that may be a bad thing

Share

In what many believe to be a startling admission during the March 23rd East Penn School Board (EPSB) meeting, Board President, Mr. Alan Earnshaw admitted “We do know what we are voting on”. The comment made by Mr. Earnshaw came during a debate in which board member Ms. Lynn Donches once again pointed out that she believed there was insufficient information for her to make an informed decision on her vote to approve the bill list. Ms. Donches has been requesting since she became a board member that more information be provided to the board about the checks in the “Bill List” to be voted on for payment.

As usual Ms. Donches request was met with contempt from Mr. Earnshaw and

It’s for the Children (Yeah, Right)

Share

How often do you hear school teachers saying, we do it for the children? It seems so often one may start to believe them. That is until you see the union teachers’ actions that show so blatantly that whenever teachers bring out the old worn out “it’s for the children” statement you should beware and look for the actions before you believe them.

Here’s their Mission Statement

The Steel Valley School District is rich in cultural diversity and unique in its heritage. The mission of the Steel Valley School District is for the school, home and community to collaborate to enable students to achieve academic standards, to encourage independent thinking and to become responsible citizens.

Keep this mission statement in mind

School cancels ‘American Pride’ themed prom after it’s deemed not ‘inclusive’

Share

by Kyle Olson at EAG News

LEXINGTON, Mass. – Lexington, Massachusetts may have played host to one of the first battles of the American revolution, but 240 years later, “American pride” is considered offensive to the school system.

Students on the dance committee at Lexington High School voted for “American Pride” to be the theme of this year’s prom, which was scheduled to be held April 10.

But administrators overruled that decision, saying it “excludes” other nationalities and canceled the dance.

Students swiftly and roundly criticized the move.

“People consider America to be a melting pot, so the fact that it was even considered offensive is what people are a little surprised about,” student Sneha Rao tells 7 News.

“It’s a little ridiculous,”

Does East Penn’s Fund Balance Affect the Bond Rating or Have the Taxpayers Been Lied to Again?

Share

East Penn School District (EPSD) administration and their bond agent PA Financial Management (PFM) constantly insist that the fund balance of the district is critical to the bond rating the district has, so let’s explore this relationship.

It is interesting to note that in the past when questioned about the excessive amount of uncommitted fund balance remaining at the end of every year board members, especially Mr. Charles Ballard insisted that there was no fund balance. That is, until the amount of cash in the fund balance grew so large it could no longer be denied. At that point the story from the administration and board changed, and the fund balance or the amount of uncommitted cash available in the budget was claimed
