Workforce Reform to Make Marxist Universities Obsolete?
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.      June 23, 2017  Originally published at 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.

On Thursday the U.S. House passed H.R. 2353, “Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act,”   which is slated to reduce the regulatory burdens on state and local communities and the role of the federal government.

In an op-ed published by FoxNews, chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) wrote:

“Educational institutions, private companies, and community leaders must play a role in the creation of workforce development programs, including apprenticeships that work best for the needs of their local communities.

Most importantly, all of these conversations can be had without the federal government dictating how these programs should be implemented.

The best thing the federal government can do is update our career and technical education laws to give community leaders and educators the tools and freedom they need to build programs that will open up more pathways for students and workers.”

A college degree has long been considered the golden ticket to a more fulfilling life, both financially and intellectually.  In 2009 President Obama said he wanted the nation to reclaim its position as the world’s leader in the proportion of college degrees by 2020.  

Now the bloom seems to be off the rose.  Students are graduating, armed with a politically driven pseudo education, to find themselves jobless or underemployed, debt ridden, and perhaps living again with parents.  

The total student debt in the United States is over $1.4 trillion with student debt for 2016 graduates in excess of $30,000.  There are 6 million job openings in the United States, the highest number since 1980, with the number increasing to 11 million by 2022. Yet millions of American workers do not have the necessary skills to fill these American jobs.

According to a 2014 Georgetown University study, by 2020 some form of education or training beyond high school will be required for 65 percent of all jobs and it will not necessarily be a college degree.  

Rather than provide students with the skills and knowledge they will need in the rapidly changing 21st century economy, many of today's outrageously expensive college and university campuses are little more than kindergartens with safe spaces and napping mats to help snowflakes deal with the high stress of evil America with classes devoted to leftwing political ideology.  College professors and administrators -- the radicals, hippies, and draft dodgers of the 1960s -- teach lessons of totalitarianism, hate-America and death to whites.

The good news is that these hate mongers may be looking for new jobs as more students are encouraged to attend vocational and technical schools instead of wasting time learning to hate the American flag, Christians, and whites.  Marxist universities may become dinosaurs.

Wonder how those professors will cope with all that real world stress of no jobs and no students on whom they can spew their Satanic wrath?  

President Trump's plan to reform our workforce development programs is sure to be a win-win for all.  American jobs for American workers with 21st century skills.  A new opportunity to live the American Dream. Reducing the size of the federal footprint in our lives by giving more control over education and jobs where they have worked best – at the state and local community level. And, oh yes, shutting down those lunatic centers being funded by taxpayers for Marxist indoctrination of young voters.  

Thank you, President Trump.  We're on the road again to a great America!

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

American schools continue to cave to Sharia demands by Muslim students.

Recently high schools in the state of New York were pressured by Muslim students to give preferential treatment for their observance of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Accommodations included prayer rooms, special diets, and time away from school.  

Senate Bill Legalizes Expansion of Data Mining
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  June 14, 2017   Education Views

While the national focus is on data mining at the K-12 grade levels, bureaucrats and technocrats are filing legislation to legalize the expansion of federal data collection on ALL U.S. citizens. If they pass Senate bill, S 1121, the College Transparency Act, the federal government can monitor, track, and pigeon hole Americans from cradle to grave. The bipartisan bill is sponsored by Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).

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.

How Data Mining Your Children’s Behavior Is Changing the Face of Texas Education
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  April 25, 2017    Texas Insider                Education Views

If cutting edge education technologies can enhance student learning, why do so many Silicon Valley executives at Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Google, and Yahoo send their children to the Waldorf School of the Peninsula that bans computer technology in the classrooms?

Why did Steve Jobs famously refuse to allow his children to use iPads and other “screen-time” technologies?

Is the real purpose of promoting personalized learning – computerized learning – really about accumulating massive amounts of data that can be used for a centrally planned economy?

Across the nation parents are protesting the data mining of their children’s highly personal information. As the collection of educational data on students has increased across the K-12 sector, so has concern about who has access to that data and how to best shield it.  Many lawmakers in dozens of states have stepped forward with bills to protect the privacy and security of sensitive student information.  

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. 

Will Texas Lawmakers Adopt Common Core Student Assessments?
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. | March 1, 2017  Texas Insider

The 84th Texas Legislature House Bill 2804 created the Texas Commission on Next Generation Assessments and Accountability (NGAA) to prepare recommendations for statutory changes for the student assessment and public school accountability programs.  An analysis finds that if these recommendations are implemented, Texas curriculum standards will be Common Core-compliant, placing Texas on the road to National Assessments.   

Classroom Technology: Research Increasingly Shows No Measureable Improvement
By Carole Hornsby Haynes  |  February 20, 2017  Texas Insider

In 1996 the Telecommunications Act was enacted to provide subsidies for schools to access broadband service through the Schools and Libraries program, also known as the E-rate program.  After spending more than $40 billion of taxpayers’ money, the program is just another big government fiasco.

American K-12 education is spending nearly $5 billion annually on technology, while cutting budgets and laying off teachers.  Even though school reformers want to believe that digitized learning has the potential to revolutionize education, research is piling up that technology does not lead to measureable improvements in student achievement, but rather is depressing it.  

Are Texas Lawmakers Funding ‘Digital Heroin’ for School Children?   
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.    February 13, 2017    Texas Insider

The Texas House Committee on Public Education wants to utilize high-tech digital learning to improve student achievement and fulfill future workforce demands. The popular notion is that students need computer time to compete in the 21st century.

Yet at the epicenter of the technology industry some parents hold a contrarian viewpoint, choosing instead to send their children to schools that have no computers at all and some even frown on home computers.
