Mob Rule Reigns: Dallas Honors Communists, Dumps Confederates
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   September 8, 2017

Mob rule has taken over Dallas City Hall.

The fix was already in even before the Dallas City Council heard our public testimony on September 6.  Prior to the meeting, cranes had been dispatched to the statute to remove the statute of Robert E. Lee.  In a blatant overreach of authority, the City Council decided 13-1 to ignore citizens and railroad the removal of all Confederate memorabilia, even that in the Fair Park displays.  Names of buildings and streets and schools must be changed. Former Texas House Representative Will Harnett has warned this will cost many millions.  Just think of the disruption to businesses and even traffic as crews set about removing all things Confederate.   

It seems that City Hall is out of control and may even be incapable of governing Dallas. Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway told radio talk show host, Mark Davis, that waiting 90 days for the Task Force report was dangerous.  His reason: As long as the statute stands, Dallas police are in danger. Quick removal will assuage future rioting.  

Is Caraway mentally capable of governing Dallas?  Such irrational comments lead us to wonder.

Of course, getting rid of Confederate memorabilia is not the real issue here.  The real issue is that, since the 1930s, neo-Marxists have been on a “long march through the institutions” in America to rewrite our history and destroy our Republic.  They intend, IF we allow it, to destroy every last vestige of our history.

Unfortunately the lessons we as a society could learn from the War Between the States have been hijacked by northern liberals who used the issue of slavery to taint the South.  The hoodwinking of Americans as to the cause of the Civil War is one of the more egregious acts of educational sabotage ever perpetrated on our nation. Original Civil War documents indicate there were multiple political cause with one being slavery.

If we are going to destroy our history, why target only Confederate history when there are numerous monuments to communists/Marxists?  Millions have been enslaved and murdered under this type of government.  

A good place to begin is with monuments to communists/Marxists Cesar Chávez and Dr. Maya Angelou.  Throughout Texas and even in Dallas there are schools, buildings, streets, and more named after these hard left radicals.

Since noises are being made to erect a statute of Angelou in place of the Lee statute, I thought it appropriate in my testimony before the City Council on Wednesday to point out that we must continue our purge of the memory of slavery and violence by removing all references to Chávez and Angelou.  Surely Dallas doesn’t want to replace Lee with a communist. Mayor Rawlings seemed quite angry with my comment as he scowled and tapped his foot.

Let’s check the facts on Chávez and Angelou.

 

House Ed Committee Studies How Feds Can Avoid Being A Burden-- Really?

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. July 18, 2017

Maybe the message is getting through to Republican conservatives on Capitol Hill that government pre-K programs are a failure – no matter how much liberals lie about how government early childhood programs close the gap for poor children.

Trump’s Education Budget: Cuts Reduce Federal Control, Common Core
Eliminating ineffective & duplicative programs calls for a $10.6 billion in cuts
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  May 25, 2017   Texas Insider

President Donald Trump has released his full budget proposal with sweeping cuts as promised during his campaign.  Since President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in 1965, the federal government has appropriated nearly $2 trillion -- 10 percent of all K-12 education spending -- to improve the educational outcomes of American students.  Yet achievement gaps remain and graduation rates for disadvantaged students are stagnant.

Common Core Faction Tries to Take Over Texas’ English Standards
By Carole Hornsby Haynes  | January 30, 2017   Texas Insider

It seems that Texas is an ongoing battle ground for K-12 standards reviews.  We’re still in a war to get the Common Core process standards stripped out of the math standards  adopted in 2012.  Now the English standards review seems headed for a shootout at this week’s State Board of Education (SBOE) meeting.

Staunch Common Core Supporter Is Top Contender for U.S. Education #1 Deputy
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |  January 16, 2017  Education Views

Getting rid of Common Core and supporting school choice were both campaign promises of President-Elect Donald Trump.  So it's a mystery why Allan B. Hubbard, director of the National Economic Council under President George W. Bush and executive director of the President’s Council on Competitiveness and deputy chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle, is reported by Education Next to be a top contender to serve as Betsy DeVos’ #1 deputy should she be confirmed.

Texas State Board of Education Turns Back Common Core Effort, Stands Firm on English Standards
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. |  February 8, 2017  Texas Insider

For the past tumultuous year and a half, the Texas English language arts and reading (ELAR) curriculum standards (TEKS) have been under review – actually rewritten rather than reviewed as the panel was instructed.

A small faction attempted to hijack the current standards approved in 2008 by eliminating the literary/historical content to create new standards that are Common Core-compliant and suitable for Common Core-aligned tests.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. |  January 16, 2017   Education Views    

President-Elect Donald Trump's nominee for education secretary is scheduled to begin confirmation hearings on January 17.  While Democrats greatly fear what she might do to reduce their tyrannical control over public education, conservatives also are deeply concerned about where she stands on various issues.

Why the Dems Loathe Betsy DeVos
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. | January 10, 2017   Education Views  (Original title: "Betsy DeVos: Public School Enemy #1)
The Senate confirmation hearings for Betsy DeVos, President-Elect Donald Trump's nomination for Secretary of Education, are scheduled to begin January 17.  Already the liberal hypocrites are doing what they do best –  character assassination of anyone not of their radical ilk.
