Our Schools Really Are Failing, but Not How You Think

Over the last several years, the efforts of most education reformers have been largely focused on opposition to Common Core standards. This is indeed a worthy goal, but sometimes it pays to take a step back to avoid missing the forest for the trees. Common Core is a symptom of a larger disease, a disease that affects the way we think about education as a whole. Let us not delude ourselves by thinking that ending Common Core alone will suddenly solve all the problems with American schooling.

Six Unbelievable Claims in Obama's State of the Union Speech

The annual State of the Union Speech is an opportunity for the president to update the country on the progress made in the last year, as well as lay out an agenda for the coming twelve months. With 2016 being the last opportunity for Barack Obama to address the nation as president, it’s understandable that he would be more focused on summing up his accomplishments in office than looking forward to the future. Given his actual record, though, it’s no surprise that he has resulted to a few exaggerations, or outright untruths, in trying to whitewash his two terms as Commander in Chief. Here are six claims to be made in tonight’s speech that are unbelievable for the simple reason that they.

Standing Up for Kids and Minorities

The great Jack Kemp used to say about politicians that “voters don’t care what you know until they know that you care.” Republicans say they care about the poor and minorities, but do they really?

Government Control of Education Is Starting to Backfire

Who should be responsible for your child’s education: you, or the government? It’s a debate that has been raging for centuries, but it is only recently that government control of education has become so intrusive as to inspire real backlash. The alternative education movement in America has been around for decades, but these days it seems to really be picking up steam, and it is not a stretch to attribute at least some of its rise in popularity to the ever-lengthening arm of the government education bureaucracy.

The New Left's "Free" College Scam Isn't Smarter Than A Fifth Grader

"I call it like I see it, the government has orchestrated a big, fraudulent scam that harms our economy and puts young people in debt for years. Don’t let them get away with it." -- Daisy Belden

Why Can't We See We're Being Scammed?

If someone called you, and told you that they wanted to give you $10,000 in loans, with extremely low interest rates, that you could use to spend on whatever you wanted, and in ten years, if you haven’t paid them back, the loan would be forgiven, what would you say? You don’t have a credit history, you don’t know this person, and you’re only 18 years old. You wrack your brain, but you can think of exactly zero reasons why this person would want to give you money.

Massachusetts Ditches Common Core

There seems to be a recurring theme of liberal, New England states regretting the big government programs they implement. First, Vermont was forced to abandon its plans for a single-payer health care system upon finding that there was no way to pay for it. Now, Massachusetts is dropping out of the Common Core education standards that don’t work and that nobody likes.
