A true maverick for Colorado: Who’s afraid of Tom Tancredo? by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Panicked liberals and crony Republican elitists agree: Tom Tancredo would be bad for their Big Government and Big Business rackets.

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 […]

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 […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 10, 2013 04:03 PM

More parents stand up to educrats, face no-trespass and gag orders

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 8, 2013 12:50 PM

I said it at an education summit in Nebraska a few weeks ago: We parents of school-age children are all Robert Smalls. We are all Robert Smalls. We, not the Obamas or the Bushes or the Gateses or educrats in Washington, are our children’s primary educational providers. Control over our children begins and ends with […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 27, 2013 09:24 AM

Education’s Shiny Toy Syndrome by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 It’s elementary. Public education bureaucrats do the darnedest, stupidest things.
