His Scary Federal Education “Choice” as a Civil Right, His Fake Repeal of Common Core, and His Phony Support of Homeschools Revealed
PROBLEM: Ted Cruz forces Common Core onto every private, religious, and homeschool in his proposed S 306 with Federal Choice (which is NO choice at all).
Supporters of Ted Cruz have been blinded by his words. Study what he has written. When one makes the comment, “…the first time that a private school takes a penny of federal money, those federal strings come along with the federal dollars (IDEA, Section 504, Title I, Title IX, etc.). It is those federal programs that force private schools to lose the very reason they are private,” it shows they have little insight into the entire agenda.
With S 306 a private school does NOT accept “federal dollars,” they accept the “federal child.” The money “follows the child.” When an ESA is packed full of government money in a scholarship or voucher, the word government is erased from the money when it is handed to the new school of choice that enrolled the federal child…it just becomes money that is transferred from parent to school…it’s about the child. So the real agenda totally escapes some. A private or religious school must accept the “federal child.” All federal kids have the availability to move to a new school. This is the Title I civil rights and eliminating the “zip code” issue that both Obama and Ted Cruz talk about.
But, ESSA is the federal monitoring machine that enforces “public school choice” accountability for the government’s investment. That ESA money pays for more than tuition to go to the school of your choice. It also pays for “direct student services” which follow and stick to the federal child with the money right into that private or religious school. Title I identifies the child to move to any school. IDEA identifies the child for psychobabble intervention services. This is what “follow the child” means. Common Core standards are for individual children that also “follow the child.” It’s the law of the land. It may not be legal, but the legislation was passed. Many people miss that control. That’s why the NCES state longitudinal data systems/data mining/data sharing/FERPA fiasco created the unique national ID…to monitor individuals..you know, “follow the child” right into the workforce. Cruz supporters are blinded by their candidate. Read Pennsylvania Moratorium on Data: http://www.newswithviews.com/Hoge/anita111.htm
What about homeschools? We didn’t see mention of that section of Cruz’s bill.
As far as all of the other candidates running for president, you believe that Cruz is the one who believes they will stick to the Constitution. I believe otherwise. You better read through ESSA and take better notes on the state sovereignty issue and then study what Cruz plans to do. No one has explained more precisely than Barack Obama and Ted Cruz what they will do to our Constitution. Cruz explains in S 306 how he plans to do that. No other candidate has been as clear as to what their motives truly are. Ted Cruz wrote it like he meant it. Control.
Other candidates have shown their willingness to do the same, just not so blatant: all governors know the agenda, so that eliminates Christy, Jebbie, Kasich. They are all part of the agenda. Fiorina is part of the data mining federal government machine. Rubio leans toward choice, vocational Ed and charters. Carson, supports choice. Trump same thing. But Common Core and Choice are buzz words. We have no idea what these last three will do to uphold the Constitution and protect our future as Americans. But if they knew about Cruz’s agenda, would they support the same thing?
I can tell you what I do know. I do know that S 306 was written by a traitor.
S 306 was written by an establishment insider. That insider is Ted Cruz.
Re-read the last few paragraphs of my small article on Ted Cruz again, again, and again. It’s hard to retract something as blatant as Ted Cruz’s openness to do away with Representative government and say he’s for the Constitution.
PS: Cruz just wrote a bill that gives DC scholarships to ALL children. What do you think of that? Is this the first pilot for per pupil expenditures with Title I portability in ESSA?
