A Republic or Democracy? 

By Dr. Carole Hornsby Haynes   |  July 7, 2010   Texas Insider

One of the most hotly debated issues between Liberals and Conservatives is whether our American form of government is a republic or a democracy.  It became a major issue in the war over the new Texas Social Studies Standards.

Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.    September 27, 2015

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced on September 25 that he will retire from Congress at the end of October.

This throws a monkey wrench into the work for passage of the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), currently known as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).  NCLB was due for reauthorization in 2007.  Even though that never happened, Congress has continued to fund the expired legislation. 

Common Core Embedded in ‘No Child Left Behind’ Reauthorization

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. | July 6, 2015 Education Views

On July 7, 2015 the U.S. Congress begins the debate on bills to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Act, currently known as ‘No Child Left Behind’ (NCLB).  The 792 page Senate bill, “Every Child Achieves Act of 2015,” clearly moves the U.S. toward nationalized education.  The bill is an unconstitutional, invasive, and expensive expansion of federal control of education.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |  April 2, 2015  Education Views

A home-rule initiative to convert the entire Dallas ISD into a charter school district was launched in 2014 with support from powerful politicians and wealthy backers.  But the public did not buy the idea.  Even Bob Weiss, chairman of the home-rule commission charged with preparing a charter, opposed home rule because he said it would “…undermine people’s democratic rights.”

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.

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.

Tea Party Style: A 2nd American Revolution?   

By Dr. Carole Hornsby Haynes   |  November 5, 2010   Texas Insider

With the midterm general election behind us, it appears that we are indeed engaged in a Second American Revolution….this time at the ballot box. The harsh reality of how far we have strayed from our Judeo-Christian roots and our Constitutional principles finally have sunken in and shaken us to the very core of our souls.  

In recent months many Americans have inwardly, and sometimes in hushed tones to trusted family members and friends, wondered whether we were facing another violent revolution to regain our unalienable rights from an abusive government and elitist demagogues.
