By Carole Hornsby Haynes September 26, 2018

In his speech to the United Nations assembly in New York, President Trump served notice that “...America will always choose independence and cooperation over global governance, control, and domination.”

Despite knowing how the president feels about one-world government, U.S. Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos recently signed a declaration that places American education right in the center of the global agenda.

General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush sent a letter to the Texas State Board of Education about removing from the social studies curriculum standards the Travis letter and “heroic” from descriptions of the Alamo defenders.  He argued that the recommended changes are not about “trimming class time” but rather about “diluting Texas history” and influencing what students will learn about our past.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. June 28, 2018 World Net Daily

President Donald Trump wants to combine the Education and Labor Departments into a single Department of Education and the Workforce. The DEW would “centralize and better coordinate Federal efforts to train the American workforce.”

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. March 24, 2018

Constitutional attorney Deborah Stevenson with National Home Education Legal Defense charged that the Cruz Amendment was unconstitutional because the 529 accounts are federal government accounts with the federal government granting an exemption – a benefit – for taxation

Is America A Democracy?

It’s quite common nowadays to hear liberals and even uninformed conservatives call America a democracy. Yet we are neither a democracy nor a representative democracy.

By definition, in a democracy what the majority feels is the rule. The Founders described this scenario as “mobocracy.” Contrast that with a republic where the general population elects representatives who pass laws. The nation is governed by rule of law, not what the majority feels at a given moment.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. January 3, 2018

Recently President trump appointed Frank Brogan to the key position of assistant secretary of education for elementary and secondary education. This is puzzling since Trump campaigned on the promise that he would stop federal support of Common Core and return control over education to the states and the people. With the appointment of Brogan, a longtime Bush ally from Florida, the probability of that promise being kept seems to be fading.
