School Reforms (Parental Control/Choice) Needed Now!
By: Joseph M. Lenard
Time is now long overdue for School reforms, the absolute need to start defunding the Department of Education and return of Education (as before it was created, and Constitutionally via the 10th Amendment) back to the States and even more-so to Local entities. PARENTAL RIGHTS have been degraded more and more, and Parents having less and less say in the Education of their Children these last few decades. The Wuhan Virus Lockdowns did one good thing, IT AWAKENED THE MAMA-BEARS as they saw via the Zoom Classrooms that today the Deep-State Indoctrination Factories (Government run Schools) are now all about peddling the new “3 R’s” of: Radicalism, Raunch, and cRt (racism) – versus the old Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic, and histoRy, let alone lack of real Civics Education on the greatness of the Nation (A Constitutional Limited Republic, NOT DEMOCRACY (that sadly the 17th Amendment helped destroy our 10th Amendment check-and-balance as the US Senate as the Body of/by/for THE STATES – but that is a whole other discussion for another day)) our Founders gave us.

It’s that time of year again: School is in and the usual WE MUST HAVE MORE MONEY discussions (ignoring the FACTS that we pump more money in, and the Schools DECLINE and therefore it is NOT about the money but about standards (or lack there-of) and hiring FASCICRATS hacks rather than actual Educators)…
This is now going to be my standard response to any/all “Schools” related stories…. (While I’m mainly writing this article as it pertains to my home State of Michigan, it most likely appropriately is true/applies to yours).
BOTTOM LINE: STOP being the #NoInformationVoters that the Left preys upon with their “vague generalities!”
Whether you have kids in School or NOT… Go to your School District and get the Facts and actual Figures… The Left despises people who are actually informed and can understand for themselves what is actually going on rather than just fall for whatever BS they put out… Ask questions and demand specifics, and if they aren’t willing to openly provide specifics be prepared to file FOIAs if necessary to get them….
Get a copy of the Contracts the District is operating under for yourself and see what they are being paid, rather than their constant cries of being poor and underpaid (and compared to who or what?). KNOW and decide for yourself! Demand to see the trend in test scores – are they rising or falling for the more and more Taxpayer money they keep demanding. KNOW what you are getting! Demand to know the stats on the actual number of Students from year to year and therefore that effect on the Budget (increase or decrease based on the per-pupil funding formulas) rather than fall for their “it’s a conspiracy in Lansing to cut funding” lies/nonsense when per-pupil spending has increased every year! FACT: In a “static” model, Budgets would always go up based upon the Formulas – stop letting them play you for a fool and KNOW the whys and wherefores of what is going on in your District!! Demand to know the Number of School Administrators and whether or not that number keeps growing despite the fact that your District may have less kids (Administrators to Students ratio). Again, KNOW whether they are giving more and more Jobs to more and more of their friends whether the School District warrants it or not!?!?

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
