Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe that our kids and our nation cannot afford four more years of neglect and indifference. The occasion will be a daylong convening of arts education policy leaders and practitioners for lively discussions about crucial policy issues and the most current news from the field. The symposium is hosted by EPLC and the Pennsylvania Arts Education Network, and supported by a generous grant from The Heinz Endowments. They also clarify what the U.S. Constitution and significant Supreme Court cases like Brown v. Board of Education, San Antonio Independent College District v. Rodriguez and Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1 say about education and our national debates.
The Obama administration, with Duncan top the way, solidified the federal government’s claims to authority over not just college outcomes, but also college practices, such as setting curricular requirements and evaluating teachers and other educators. Obama’s speeches on education are largely hortatory, encouraging young people to graduate from higher school and pursue postsecondary education or instruction, and not particularly memorable.
Based on his support for the initiative, and current U.S. Division of Education criteria for granting NCLB waivers to states that pledge higher requirements for student efficiency, greater accountability, and improved teacher effectiveness, Secretary Duncan clearly believes that it did. Like all good modern day Marxists, Obama has seized energy via the back door by not revealing the extent of his Communist ideology till he has taken workplace.
Viewing the education policy landscape from 30,000 feet—a Secretary’s-eye view—may suggest that the implementation of Race to the Leading and related reforms has gone smoothly. Obama has stated that he desires to convert the stock the US government now owns in the nation’s banks from preferred stock, which is the case at present, to widespread stock. Obama has offered the GOP till October to approve his health care program which several authorities have shown, would be as socialized as Cuba’s. Constantly pleased to meet workers striving for Revolutionary ideals and adherents of the Politburo’s newest Five Year Strategy.
Obama has already launched legislation to get rid of private lenders from student loans which would now all be offered by the federal government straight, so that it could choose in a totalitarian manner who receives the loans and who doesn’t. Control of larger education as in Obama’s Pell Grant entitlement is a universal characteristic of communism to make sure that the young are effectively ideologically indoctrinated. In the 21st century, the ideal anti-poverty system about is a globe-class education.
