Thank you, Senator Marco Rubio for exposing the fraud of the DOED.
Ever since the inception of Department of Education, American education has deteriorated. All of the charts and graphs from the last 40 years prove this.
In addition, there is NO PLACE in recorded history that one size shoe fits all education does anything other than create mediocrity. So why do we continue along this path. Just follow the money. Trillions spent on failed education benefiting the salaries of the DOED and the vendors, nothing for the students. Curriculums focus on feel good moments and the environment instead of factual information. A Marxist education states that the child is a ward of the state and should be identified early so they can be educated (indoctrinated) into a work oriented program. This is the idea behind Race to the Top and NCLB. This has nothing to do with education, it has to do with indoctrination, power and control by dumbing down American students following social justice program.
An American education is supposed to teach factual information and the skills for a child to chose his career path later in life. Once a child has a true factual education (missing since the 1950's) they choose their career and that business will train them. The business education comes after the career choice by the student, not a choice by the government.
The Heritage Foundation analyzes Race to the Top...Race to Tyranny In the early 1990's, Marc Tucker wrote a letter to Hillary Clinton describing his concept for American education. He determined that children should be trained at an early age since working for the state was the most import function of a citizen. (Marxism) Today, Marc has succeeded in implementing his plan through RTTT and NCLB. Children will be trained that their life focuses around collectivism the good of the collective, not individualism (American ideology) If you have the stomach to listen to what the Federal Government has in store for our children. www.heritage.org/Events/2011/07/National-Standards
The RTTT courses are sub-standard
Race to the Top violates Education Code...
Federal Education Code, Department of Education, Public Law, 20 U.S.C. 3403 (Pub. L 96-88, Title 1, 103, Oct 1979, 93 Stat 670) United States Code. Title 20 Education Chapter 48.
Since the "useful idiots", your new name, are so dumb you won't notice as the Federal Government takes over education and transforms (changes) America into a communist country by indoctrinating (training) your child to "Fight for Communism".
Follow the money ...
Can you still do math? The staff is approximately 4500 people. The budget is $50 Billion...
What about the vendors...
It seems as though the Gates Foundation and the companies supported by the Gates Foundation are the winners. The Gates recipients will handle the technology, books, materials, programs, databases, evaluation and procedures. Isn't that sweet.
What a scam.
Money is not the answer. The only thing that will fix America education, is a factual curriculum and true content handled by the individual states.
