Is America A Democracy?

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. April 27, 2018

It’s quite common nowadays to hear liberals and even uninformed conservatives call America a democracy. Yet we are neither a democracy nor a representative democracy.

By definition, in a democracy what the majority feels is the rule. The Founders described this scenario as “mobocracy.” Contrast that with a republic where the general population elects representatives who pass laws. The nation is governed by rule of law, not what the majority feels at a given moment.

American Students Show Mediocre Test Results

By Carole Hornsby Haynes April 13, 2018 Education Views

The United States spends more on K-12 education than almost any other nation in the world and yet our students are performing poorly on tests.

This week the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress test results in mathematics and reading were published. These are tests that have been funded by Congress since the late 1960s and early 1970s and required for all 50 states as part of No Child Left Behind. Called the nation’s “Report Card,” NAEP tests must be given at least every two years to a stratified random sample of students at specific grade levels (4, 8, and upper high school).

The High Cost of lllegal Immigration to Texans

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. April 9, 2018

Texas taxpayers are shelling out $11 billion each year to support 1.9 million illegal aliens, the second largest illegal population in the nation. Texans are also supporting 625,000 of their U.S. born children with 537,000 of these attending local schools.

The tab to Texans is $4,429 for each illegal alien which places a heavy burden of $1,231 on each household.

Education: $8 billion

States are forced to educate illegal aliens and their children, refugees, and legal immigrant students through an unfunded federal mandate as required by the Plyler v. Doe Supreme Court decision in 1982.

How To Stop Leftist Indoctrination In Schools

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. April 7, 2018 World Net Daily

Public K-12 no longer teaches objective and unbiased education. Instead, schools are centers of radical left wing indoctrination for Cultural Marxism, identity politics, and other anti-American ideas. Students are told what to think, not how to think.

Complicit in this indoctrination are administrators, teachers, textbook publishers, and “theorists” such as former Weatherman Bill Ayers (turned Professor of Early Childhood Education) who create manuals on “teaching social justice” for teacher development programs.

Feds/Big Tech Join To Push Addiction in Schools

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. March 25, 2018 World Net Daily

The federal government, bent on collecting massive amounts of personal information on its citizens – a flagrant violation of the Fourth Amendment – and the tech industry, under fire for its digital products designed to addict, have joined forces in American classrooms.

Through the unconstitutional Every Student Succeeds Act passed in 2015 under the Obama administration, digital devices with computer adaptive software for both lessons and testing are pushed into K-12 classrooms.

Spendthrift Congress Expands Federal Control of Education With Omnibus Bill

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. March 24, 2018

So much for fiscal responsibility, preserving privacy, promoting federal programs that actually work, and decreasing the federal footprint in education. Congress has passed a $1.3 TRILLION spending bill that will fund the government for ONLY SIX MONTHS. The House passed it by a vote of 256-197 and the Senate by a vote of 65-32.
