Get Those Phones Goin’
SB 22 - SCHOOL-TO-WORK PROGRAM -- PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP
What’s wrong with School-to-Work program?
• Federally designed framework for curricula and instruction • Changes purpose of education from academic learning to job training and placement • Limits education choice; children forced to make occupational decision by 8th grade as dictated by predicted local and regional workforce needs • Skill certification to become compulsory • Student gets credit for working during school day/business gets free labor • Links schools with jobs and government which becomes gatekeeper of education and employment for centrally planned economy (think “Soviet Union”)
Is vocational education needed in Texas where more than 50% of students do not go to college? Yes.
• Apprenticeships with students working after school can provide career pathway. Student remains in school to get solid academic education
RED ALERT: Keep those calls comin.' See action alert below
HB 2255/HB 1237 - FULL DAY PRE-K
What’s wrong with pre-K?
• Common Core Standards in pre-K (thanks to federal Every Student Succeeds Act) • Children who don’t attend pre-K outperform those who do • Pre-K and daycare children show more aggression, bullying, and lack of control • Pre-K benefits fade from K-3rd grade • Children who don’t attend pre-K CAN catch up
