Merge Federal Departments? Better to Abolish Them

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.” 

Let's be clear. It is not the role of federal government to train the American workforce.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. July 19, 2017 Published by Daily Caller

Promising that apprenticeships are going to be a “major factor in our country,” President Trump is leading the charge to reform the failed federally funded job-training and workforce development programs.

The recently passed H.R. 2353 reduces the role of the federal government in workforce programs. Education and the Workforce Committee ChairmanVirginia Foxx, in her FoxNews commentary, wrote that educational institutions, private companies, and community leaders must work together to create apprenticeship programs without the federal government dictating implementation.

Workforce Reform to Make Marxist Universities Obsolete?
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.      June 23, 2017   World Net Daily

“We want to make sure that we have the workforce development programs we need to ensure these jobs are being filled by American workers.”President Donald J. Trump

President Trump is leading the charge to reform the federally funded job-training and workforce development programs to prepare Americans for the millions of available jobs.  As with most central government projects, these programs have not been effective, wasting billions of taxpayer dollars and leaving many Americans struggling to find full-time employment.

That is changing with the new legislature being passed in D.C., designed to promote apprenticeships and effective workforce development programs.

Will Lawmakers Pass Soviet-Style Education as New Mission for Texas Schools?
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |   March 20, 2017 Texas Insider     Education Views

A bill recently filed for the Texas 85th legislative session, HB 136, proposes to add a new mission to the Texas Education Code:

  • OBJECTIVE 11:  The State Board of Education, the agency, and the commissioner shall assist school districts  and charter schools in providing career and technology education and effective workforce training opportunities to students.

This bill, if passed, will dramatically transform the primary purpose of Texas public education from academic learning to workforce training for the supplying of workers for businesses. Education will no longer be focused on providing a well-rounded education so the individual can adapt to the inevitable changes in the workplace. 

Universal Background Checks Are ALL About Gun Confiscation, Lt. Gov. Patrick

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.    September 12, 2019

To appease Democrats demands over the last mass shooting in Texas, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick has proposed Obama-era legislation requiring background checks for private gun sales.  Trying to calm outraged gun rights activists, he claims, “This is NOT a ban on private gun sales and this change in the law will NOT lead to a gun registry.”

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |   May 17, 2017   Texas Insider

Chinese Should Feel Right at Home in Texas

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   |   February 1, 2015 

American public education is increasingly mirroring that of totalitarian countries.  For that we can blame politicians.  For decades the U.S. government has been trying to grab control of education because education is key to imposing statism on the American people. 

The Perfect Solution To End Gun Violence In Texas

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. September 8, 2019

Following a second Texas shooting in the past month, Governor Greg Abbott is caving to Democrats who want to disarm law-abiding citizens under the pretense of “stopping the violence.” Fellow Texans, that would leave us as sitting ducks anytime nut jobs want to go on a wild killing spree. There is a far better solution – arm ourselves -- because gunmen never, ever are dumb enough to walk into a place where people are armed.
