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 […]

Look who’s data-mining your toddlers by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Attention, parents: Have your little ones been subjected to “TS Gold” in school yet? If you care about student privacy, data mining and classroom intrusions, you might want to start asking questions and protecting your children now before it’s too late. What’s happening […]

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. […]

The data-mining body monitors in our schools

Gwendolyn’s BMI report card My daughter Veronica’s BMI report card lecture on being too lean The data-mining body monitors in our schools by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Like millions of other American parents, my husband and I received a warning letter from the BMI police last week.

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 political casualties

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 9, 2014 12:09 AM

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. In bellwether Indiana this week, anti-Common Core activists won a […]

Big Government GOP’s Common Core Rebrand Hustle

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 30, 2014 06:59 AM

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. Mike Pence, with leading the nation as the “first state to fall out of the Common Core national education standards.” If only it were true. Wallace […]

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 […]

Pushing back against PARCC/Achieve Inc. lobbyists

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 4, 2014 05:59 AM

Pushing back against PARCC/Achieve Inc. lobbyists by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Attention, class: A Common Core mouthpiece wants to rap my knuckles with his Gates Foundation-funded ruler. In response to my column two weeks ago about the marketing overlords pushing the Fed Ed racket, Chad Colby of Achieve Inc. demanded corrections. Let’s go […]

Get to know the Common Core marketing overlords

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 21, 2014 07:33 AM

Get to know the Common Core marketing overlords by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 They’re everywhere. Turn on Fox News, local news, Animal Planet, HGTV, The Family Channel or talk radio. Pro-Common Core commercials have been airing ad nauseam in a desperate attempt to persuade American families to support the beleaguered federal education standards/testing/technology […]

Revolt against the testing tyrants

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 19, 2014 07:12 AM

Revolt against the testing tyrants by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Have you had enough of the testing tyranny? Join the club. To be clear: I’m not against all standardized academic tests. My kids excel on tests. The problem is that there are too damned many of these top-down assessments, measuring who knows what, […]

Why parents are “paranoid” about Common Core

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 21, 2014 09:49 AM

Why parents are “paranoid” about Common Core by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 This week’s award for Biggest Common Core Jerk goes to Missouri GOP state legislator Mike Lair. Parents, teachers and administrators who object to the government education “standards” racket — which usurps local control, impedes academic achievement and undermines family privacy — […]

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce vs. America

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 24, 2014 09:03 AM

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce vs. America by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a politically entrenched synod of special interests. These fat cats do not represent the best interests of American entrepreneurs, American workers, American parents and students, or Americans of any race, class or age who believe […]

Common Core and the EduTech abyss

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 8, 2014 09:19 AM

Common Core and the EduTech abyss by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 The Common Core gold rush is on. Apple, Pearson, Google, Microsoft and Amplify are all cashing in on the federal standards/testing/textbook racket. But the EduTech boondoggle is no boon for students. It’s more squandered tax dollars down the public school drain. Even […]

Stossel: The flaws in Common Core

By Doug Powers  •  January 2, 2014 01:01 PM

**Written by Doug Powers At Reason.com, John Stossel has a good column about Common Core educational standards. In part of the article, Stossel discusses math problems that are worded in a way so as to be almost intentionally confusing in order to be able to awards points just for effort: Common Core de-emphasizes correct answers […]

Obama’s Cash for Universal Preschool Clunker Plan

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 11, 2013 10:15 AM

Obama’s Cash for Universal Preschool Clunker Plan by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 It’s elementary: When Democrats find themselves in political trouble, they reach for your wallets. After squandering billions on an ineffectual stimulus, failed green energy boondoggles and the disastrous Unaffordable Care Act, the Obama White House wants to dump $75 billion more […]

Journalism prof’s beyond stupid WaPo op-ed: Did the Tea Party kill JFK?

By Doug Powers  •  November 22, 2013 11:06 PM

**Written by Doug Powers A journalism professor (what a, uh, surprise) at the University of Texas has found the roots of the Tea Party, and they go clear back to Dallas, Texas in 1963. This story is such a reach that it has stretch marks: If today’s extremist rhetoric sounds familiar, that’s because it is […]

Arne Duncan’s war on women and children

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 20, 2013 10:16 AM

I’m not going to let Education Secretary Arne Duncan’s attack on moms and their kids who oppose Common Core just fade away. His fauxpology is meaningless. His defenders are clueless. No wonder Moms Against Duncan is swelling on Facebook. My syndicated column today reiterates and amplifies Monday’s blog post on Duncan’s bigotry and arrogance. Keep […]
