A home-rule initiative to convert the entire Dallas ISD into a charter school district was launched in 2014 with support from powerful politicians and wealthy backers.  But the public did not buy the idea.  Even Bob Weiss, chairman of the home-rule commission charged with preparing a charter, opposed home rule because he said it would “…undermine people’s democratic rights.”

Give the Forgotten Middle Class Some Freebies!

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |  March 6, 2015  |   Education Views  

The wealthy are growing wealthier and the disadvantaged have free food, cell phones, rent, utilities, and cards to access cash.  The middle class is slowly sinking into a sea of oblivion.

The rich can send their children to the finest private schools and colleges. Vouchers, tax credits, and tuition scholarships are being made available to the poor, but no one seems to notice that the middle class can little afford to send their children to private schools.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. |  February 26, 2015  

‘School choice’ has become the rallying cry for millions of Americans weary with a public school system that is frought with insurmountable problems that have grown worse in the face of failed reform efforts.  Public education is no longer focused on providing students with a sound academic foundation, but rather changing student attitudes, beliefs, and view as world citizens instead of American citizens.

With a stroke of his pen, President Obama recently changed the future of Americans and of our nation – fundamentally transforming America from the greatest nation on earth to a future as a banana republic.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |  December 6, 2014  WND 

A decision was handed down by the Supreme Court in 1982 that would forever change America – and quite possibly will result in the downfall of the greatest nation on earth.  

In Plyler v. Doe, the court ruled that children of illegal aliens have a “constitutional right” to a free and appropriate public education with equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment.

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |  September 2, 2014 

The public fury to repeal ObamaCare continues, yet the public seems to be unaware of the vast net cast by the Obama administration to embed the nationalized healthcare system into the American culture – embedded so deeply that it defies a simple repeal.
