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.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   July 14, 2017     Published by Dallas Morning News

On July 18th the Texas Legislature convenes for a special session to address 20 items, one of which is a $1000 pay raise for teachers.

Education spending represents a major chunk of each state’s budget, bloated with the usual unnecessary layers of government bureaucracy.  In a 2012 Congressional testimony Neal McClusky with the CATO Institute stated, “Our public schools have been on a decades-long hiring binge with ultimately no gains to show for it.”

Government Schools Track Kids ‘Mental Health’

Government schools are conducting psychological and mental evaluations of children without parental consent or knowledge. Blame the unconstitutional Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) that was passed under the Obama administration with Republican support.

ESSA shifts the focus from academic learning to social and emotional learning (SEL). During the House proceedings, Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, made the stunning statement that Common Core is being redefined as social-emotional learning, which must come first in the learning hierarchy -- with academics ranking second!

We have national healthcare and national curriculum standards.  If our Republican-led Congress has its way, we will soon have another unconstitutional national program – a federal student database.

For years those who want to establish social control have advocated for a centralized government database to track and link student data across agencies.

“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.

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).

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. June 10, 2017 Revised

Original published by World Net Daily June 10, 2017

Despite billions of dollars being dumped into government schools, nearly 50 percent of Americans can barely read while some cannot read at all.

According to the Department of Justice, “The link between academic failure and delinquency, violence, and crime is welded to reading failure.” The statistics back up this claim: 85 percent of all juveniles who interface with the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate, and over 60 percent of inmates in America’s prisons cannot read above a fourth grade level. Two-thirds of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of the fourth grade will end up in jail or on welfare.
