0347_ Will Congress Heed Evidence That Government Preschool is Worthless? – by Karen Effrem, Jane Robbins – The American Spectator 7-24-18

July 27, 2017

Excerpts from below:

“(1) ‘fade out’ and even reversal of positive achievement effects by grades 2-3, so that pre-K non-participants were outperforming participants; (2) more disciplinary infractions and special-education placements for pre-K participants by grade 3 than for non-participants; … ” [etc. – see below]

“This dismal report is hardly surprising. The author of the Tennessee study, Dr. Dale Farran, had said in a 2016 Brookings paper that despite 50 years of experience, research does not support the proposition that expanding pre-K will improve later achievement for low-income children.

“…parents, keep your kids out of government preschool.

 “Will Congress Heed Evidence That Government Preschool Is Worthless?”

By Karen Effrem, Jane Robbins

Jane Robbins is a senior fellow at American Principles Project. Dr. Karen Effrem is trained as a pediatrician and serves as president of Education Liberty Watch.

Government pre-K won’t help participants do better in school — and it will even cause emotional harm.

 On the theory that more government programs can solve any public-education problem, bipartisan policymakers have embraced government-funded pre-K programs as the current fix. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act dangles multiple incentives, including new Preschool Development Grants, to coax states into taking more young children from their families and enrolling them in government preschool. Advocates claim the $7.6 billion spent on state pre-K programs will result in improved academic achievement and a multitude of societal benefits. Continue reading

0346_No [Union] Dues Without Political Representation_by Larry Sand_July 10, 2018_US Supreme Court has made the US a Right-To-Work country

This month Larry Sand wrote an article, published by the California Policy Center.  It is in reference to the Supreme Court decision that the United States is now a Right-To-Work country.   Unions can no longer force people to be automatically members of their unions.  People have the option to stay out or sign up.  No automatic membership!!

Below are some excerpts from Larry Sand’s article.  You can see the rest of the article here:   … https://californiapolicycenter.org/no-dues-without-political-representation/

“All this leads to Janus v AFSCME, the lawsuit that resulted in the U.S. becoming a right-to-work country. And it puts conservative and libertarian teachers in California and 21 other states in a powerful position. Prior to the ruling, teachers who didn’t like their unions’ political spending could opt out of paying the political portion of their union dues – usually about 35 percent of the total. A teacher would have to resign from the union, but still have to pay an “agency fee” of about $700 to their local union, and its state and national affiliates (usually CTA/NEA). But now no teacher has to pay a penny to a union as a condition of employment.”

“Conservative and libertarian teachers should start playing hardball and demand that the union change its political spending habits before they agree to join or maintain their membership.” Continue reading

Truth About Tech: Addiction By Design

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. February 9, 2018 World Net Daily

“What many parents have suspected is now being exposed by former Silicon Valley employees: that tech companies have designed their digital products to be addictive.

“The Center for Humane Technology, which was recently founded by former Google and Facebook employees, has joined forces with media watchdog, Common Sense Media. In their first campaign – Truth About Tech – they will educate millions of consumers about the dangers of tech products and pressure tech companies to create less addictive and less intrusive products.

“Tech companies incorporate techniques within the digital products that result in user addiction. Continue reading

Declaration of Independence: A Transcription

Note: The following text is a transcription of the Stone Engraving of the parchment Declaration of Independence (the document on display in the Rotunda at the National Archives Museum.) The spelling and punctuation reflects the original.


In Congress, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
