LIKE OBAMACARE, OBAMA CORE IS ANOTHER POWER GRAB -- BY PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY -- 10.9.12

 

 

 

[10.9.12 -- This is an excellent article by Phyllis Schlafly, but I need to add that the Obama administration is not just working through the state education agencies. Not to be deterred by those few state agencies that have turned their backs on Common Core Standards/Race to the Top (RTTT), the Obama Administration and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan came up with a clever “work around” so that the RTTT funds (requiring schools to follow the Common Core Standards Initiative) could be sent directly to the local school districts in spite of being blocked by the state agencies.

This federal funding from Obama’s U. S. Department of Education (USDOE) is being sent for the first time directly from the federal department to the local school districts without passing through the state education agencies.

Local Texas school administrators are ignoring the dangers of the federal strings and are salivating over the federal funding.  In Texas, 64 educational entities indicated that they will apply for RTTT funds. 

Nationwide, there are 893 school districts (and other eligible entities) that have indicated their intent to apply for the RTTT’s $400 Million “work around.” The deadline for these entities to file their formal applications is October 30, 2012.

Like Obamacare, Obama Core Is Another Power Grab

When we list the areas that Barack Obama wants to "fundamentally transform," as he promised before his 2008 election, let's not overlook his plans for education. They are as fundamentally transformational, costly and dictatorial as Obamacare.

P.S. Texas has NOT adopted Obama's "Race to the Top" education funding scheme. However, a new state curriculum called CSCOPE adopts many of the same education fads. Look for details in the next Texas Eagle Forum Torch newsletter.
