A helpful reminder about Hillary Clinton, Common Core and the Fed Ed control freaks

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 14, 2015 01:56 PM

Last week, the New York Times published a lengthy report on Hillary Clinton’s Common Core conundrum. Today, she commented in Iowa that the debate over the failed Fed Ed standards was “painful” to her (debate is always painful to control freaks in both parties) because it started out as a “bipartisan” effort (Big Government/Big Business […]

Jeb Bush, Pearson, PARCC, and your kids’ privacy

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 17, 2015 11:51 PM

Last week, Jeb Bush was in New Hampshire, pressing on with his sordid campaign to delude conservatives into swallowing Common Core and massive, unfettered immigration policies. He has fashioned himself a champion of the American worker, even as he pompously pushes Gang of Eight amnesty as the “adult” plan in the room. And he has […]

By Doug Powers  •  March 6, 2015 05:48 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Here are a few students with a real firm grip on the real world (via @CaroljsRoth): Students at the University of California, Irvine, have voted for a more “inclusive space” by banning the American flag on part of the school’s campus.

Welcome to TotCare: Obama’s preschool takeover by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 The wheels on the bus go ’round and ’round, just like the endless cycles of big, bad government programs to federalize preschool and daycare.

One nation under godlessness

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 14, 2014 06:48 AM

One nation under godlessness by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Cheating. Bullying. Cybersexting. Hazing. Molestation. Suicide. Drug abuse. Murder. Scanning the headlines of the latest scandals in America’s schools, it’s quite clear that the problem is not that there’s too much God in students’ lives. The problem is that there isn’t nearly enough of […]

Congrats, Diane Douglas! Grass-roots activist ousts pro-Common Core state supe in Arizona GOP primary

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 26, 2014 10:21 PM

Most of the rest of the nation has never heard of Diane Douglas. But the education establishment in D.C. and Common Core’s overlords — looking at you, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Gates Foundation, Jeb Bush, etc. etc. etc — will all know her name tomorrow morning. Grass-roots parents and anti-Common Core activists in Arizona know […]

Readin’, Writin’, and Social Justice Agitatin’

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 8, 2014 07:57 AM

Readin’, Writin’, and Social Justice Agitatin’ by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 It’s back-to-school season across the country. But in an increasing number of districts, “back to school” doesn’t mean back to learning. Under the reign of social justice indoctrinators, academics are secondary to political agitation. Activism trumps achievement. In Massachusetts, the John J. […]

Endorsement: Diane Douglas for Arizona state superintendent

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 16, 2014 03:39 AM

As readers know, I’ve dedicated the last two years to raising the alarm about Common Core. There has been a dramatic sea change since I started reporting on the issue. When I began, Fox News barely gave it a few minutes’ notice. Now, the pedagogical controversy over Fed Ed is being covered wall-to-wall. It’s the […]

Good riddance: Common Core backlash claims new casualties by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 All politics is local. So Republican politicians with national ambitions better pay attention to what grassroots parents are saying and doing about the federal education racket known as Common Core.

Big Government GOP’s Common Core Rebrand Hustle by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 This weekend on “Fox News Sunday,” anchor Chris Wallace credited his guest, Republican Indiana Gov.

Dear Mike Pence: Don’t pull a Huckabee on Common Core

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 21, 2014 06:58 AM

As you know from my coverage of Common Core, the Big Government and Big Business forces that have colluded on this boondoggle have been partners on expanding the federal role in education for a long, long time. And as I’ve pointed out since day one, one of their core strategies has been to rename and […]

Turn on Fox News, local news, Animal Planet, HGTV, The Family Channel or talk radio.
