OPEN LETTER TO U.S. CONGRESSMAN PETE SESSIONS

February 2, 2016  Education Views                              

The Honorable Pete Sessions
Chairman of the House Rules Committee
United States House of Representatives
2233 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, D.C.  20515-4332

Dear Chairman Sessions:

This correspondence is in reference to your letter of February 1, 2016 which states, “The Every Student Succeeds Act includes major reforms that will stop Washington from imposing Common Core or any other academic standards on states.” 

Senator Lamar Alexander has stated that ESSA repealed the Common Core mandate while you have stated that Common Core has been defunded by the Omnibus Bill.  However, a Common Core mandate has never existed for the federal government but rather for the states. Neither of you is being truthful with the American people.

GOP Colludes with White House in Education Takeover

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. | January 14, 2016

In the face of growing outrage over the Republican support of Obama’s radical agenda to nationalize and dumb down education, lawmakers are scurrying to convince voters the Every Student Succeeds Act, actually prevents the federal government from forcing states to adopt Common Core while reducing the federal role in education.

Common Core Now Law Of the Land

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.   December 15, 2015        National Center for Policy Analysis         Education Views 

Congress has repealed the No Child Left Behind Act only to replace it with a far worse centralized control of education -- Every Student Succeeds Act

Congress has admitted that Common Core now will be federal law and that it is not about academic learning but rather changing the beliefs, values, behavior, and worldviews of students.  In a nutshell, the government is conducting psychological profiling of our children.

Nosy Data Mining In Public Schools Is Straight From Communist Playbook....poses grave risks to student's future

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. |  November 8, 2015   Education Views

All 50 states have been mandated by the U.S. Department of Education to establish inter-connected “longitudinal databases” accumulating information on every student from pre-kindergarten through workforce (P-20W)!

Student privacy was shredded in 2011 when the U.S. Department of Education seized unauthorized authority.  With the stroke of a pen, the USDOE reinterpreted the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (20 U.S.C. Section 1232g) to allow a student’s academic record to be shared with virtually anyone, including non-governmental organizations, without prior written parental consent.  For-profit education technology companies can use the FERPA information to develop software for students, teachers, and administrators.

GOP’s ‘Christmas Miracle’ for President Obama

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |  January 11, 2016  Education Views

The American people have voted in massive numbers for Republican congressional candidates over the past several elections.  Yet nothing has changed in Washington.  GOP leadership and establishment Republicans once again betrayed their constituents as they voted to codify Obama’s radical education agenda into federal law.

Thanks GOP: House Passes ObamaCORE

The horse is out of the barn! Congress has admitted that Common Core now will be federal law and that it is not about academic learning but rather changing the beliefs, values, behavior, and worldviews of students.  In a nutshell, the government is conducting psychological profiling of our children. 

The U.N., ESEA, and School Mental Health Clinics

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D.  |  September 5, 2015  Education Views 

As the U.S. Congress returns to Washington from summer recess, it will resolve the differences in their two radical bills to arrive at a final package for reauthorizing the unconstitutional Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA).  This is Washington’s primary mechanism to steal control of education from parents and local communities.  This law opened a tsunami of federal funding to schools, initiating the federalization of schools.  ESEA was amended in 2002 with the widely reviled No Child Left Behind Act, imposing a radical program of high stakes testing and federalizing the curriculum in schools.
