By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. June 5, 2019'

In a great show of “unity” and “cooperation” during the 86th Texas Legislative session, Republicans handed Democrats their goals on a platter: universal Pre-K, expansion of classroom technology, and socialist workforce learning for young children. Since there is always a money trail linked to education today, it appears we should be asking why Republicans are behaving like Democrats.

Why Are Texas Politicians Eager for School Mental Health Services?

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. June 4, 2019

Adapted from May 31 letter sent by American Citizens Matter to Governor Abbot, requesting veto of Senate Bill 11, House Bill 18, and House Bill 19

It is a known fact that pharmaceutical companies spend far more than any other industry to influence politicians.   Thus, the public should be concerned that so much emphasis by our Texas political leaders has been placed on setting up mental health services on school campuses and the partnering of Texas schools with private psychiatric hospitals to which students will be referred for inpatient care and medication.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. May 1, 2019

If Texas politicians have their way, the communist U.N. G20 agreement will be enshrined in Texas public education.  Responsibility for the shift from American capitalism and personal freedom toward a global socialist model can be laid squarely at the feet of government and politicians.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   March 28, 2019  World Net Daily

During the opening segment of her March 10 Fox News show, Judge Jeanine Pirro posed the question about whether the hijab – Muslim headscarf – signifies that Rep.

The U.S. continues its shift from capitalism toward embracing the principles of government/corporate economic control similar to the failed ideas of a state planned economy like that of the former Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. The federal government has no constitutional authority for involvement in the private sector, either by planning the economy or training the workforce.

Texas Students To Be More Dumbed Down 

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

The 2019 Texas legislature is rushing headlong into expanding technology in K-12, forcing children into more “personalized learning,” a euphemism for replacing teachers with digital screens. Ignoring volumes of proof that digital learning has lowered academic achievement and created mental and psychological problems, states spend $5 billion each year of taxpayers’ money on technology.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. February 6, 2019

In his State of the Union speech, President Trump urged lawmakers to pass a school choice bill.
