The National Pulse: Another Common Core Apologist Opts Out of Trump Admin Job

Alan Hubbard took his hat out of the ring to be considered for Deputy Secretary of Education!

As Dr. Effrrem states; this is fabulous news for parents, citizens, and activists fighting against the Common Core/Fed Ed machine. Hubbard is a strong ally of both Betsy DeVos and the pro-Common Core American Federation for Children, as well as working closely Jeb Bush and with disgraced former Indiana and Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett.

We will reiterate our list of excellent potential choices for the deputy secretary job that will fight Common Core and federal overreach in education:

The National Pulse: Federal Court Upholds Child’s “Emancipation” from Mother by State Agencies

Dr. Karen Effrem needles through the haystack of destruction, parents beware!

The State of Minnesota is rapidly earning the dubious distinction of leading the nation in the destruction of parental rights and autonomy. A federal district court judge just dismissed a mother’s lawsuit, essentially upholding Minnesota’s very harmful and unconstitutional “emancipation statute” that allows minor children — with the aid of outside groups — to leave their families whenever there is conflict, as long as the child is living independently and can support himself or herself. This removes parents from decision-making or receiving information about their child’s schooling, medical care, or emotional health, and it is all done without a court hearing and due process.

The other way that Minnesota is trampling on parental rights is by ignoring the Trump administration’s rescission of the dangerous and lawless Obama administration’s Title IX “guidance” on transgender students and athletes. Instead, the Minnesota Department of Education is bullying school boards and other school officials into believing that the Obama edict is still in place and that, legally, they must comply. The harmful implications to parental rights are also severe!

The National Pulse: 2 Reasons Why DeVos’ Education Reform Plan Would Be a Disaster

Charter school and voucher expansion have been a hot topic across the nation at both the state and federal levels. Interest and grave concern about this expansion, especially at the federal level, has intensified from all points on the political spectrum in light of several recent developments: Florida’s bill serving as a trial run, the release of President Trump’s first federal education budget, Secretary DeVos’ recent testimony and speech, and the Jeb Bush-led promotion of these ideas.

Dr. Karen Effrem examines 2 reasons DeVos education reform would not work.

  1. Increased government tentacles into schools.
  2.  Charter Schools do not improve students performance.

The National Pulse: The Student Data Grabbers Are Back At It Again

The bureaucrats and technocrats who see education as mere workforce preparation and who are devoted to monitoring, tracking and slotting free-born American citizens from womb to tomb in order to create their vision of a planned economy are continuing their dystopian efforts with a new bill.  S 1121, the College Transparency Act.

This bill is supported by all of the usual data grabbing suspects that see students merely as links in the labor market supply chain and education merely as workforce skills development. This includes the Workforce Data Quality Campaign, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable.
