As top 2020 Democratic candidates unveil plans to curb or reverse the spread of charter schools, many Black and Latino voters are asking why their voices aren't being heard, according to a New York Times report. "As a single mom with two jobs and five hustles, I'm just feeling kind of desperate," Sonia Tyler told the Times. "They're brilliant; they're curious. It's not fair. Why shouldn't I have a choice?" Tyler is seeking to enroll her children in a suburban charter school outside Atlanta, joining many other parents who have found in charters a lifeline to escape

Stick up for your kids! If you need help ask the President, he's on your side. The dems run by the teacher's union is not.

An education is freedom - that’s why the Dems oppose it.

So many excellent parochial schools close because of declining enrollment. Trump should offer tax credits to parents or scholarships that waive religious curriculum if desired, These schools have excellent records of graduates in higher education. Plus their teachers are not NEA union members so they actually teach.

The last thing Democrats want is for minority children to realize they can be successful without white liberals propping them up at every turn. Public schools will keep them educationally crippled.

#3, without a religious curriculum, a parochial school is not a parochial school. It becomes just another private school which will soon be overrun with leftist administrators and teachers. I’ve seen it happen. Unmentioned in this article, but something that needs to be repeated daily to the black community is that messiah 0bama, upon entering the WH, ended school choice in DC which has some of the worst schools in the country. Then he turned right around and enrolled his daughters in the elite $40,000 per year Sidwell Friends school. All to keep that teacher’s union money flowing into his coffers. It was an act of pure evil and the demonrats should pay the price for it. Blexit!!!!

In other words, Democrats are pro-choice when it comes to killing children but not to educating them.

Here's a little secret about the battle between the Teacher's unions and Charter Schools. Because the Charter schools are part of the School District, the District has control of who is sent to Charter Schools. The Districts have been dumping Special Needs students and pupils with discipline issues into the Charter schools to drive down the schools ability to teach to the brighter students the schools were designed for.

I recall a while back, people were camping out for days prior to enrolling their children in 3 charter schools in Santa Ana, CA school district. They were shining bright spots of opportunity, in a heavily Latino area. A couple people complained they could not afford to take days (think of that type of commitment to provide a better opportunity for your child) off work to wait for that chance. So, the school district simply eliminated those charter schools - likely at the behest of the teachers union. Instead of looking to copy that same successful program, they decided it was better to return to what was before. When you hear about how college educated people lean to the Democrat party, as if that's a good thing, that they know more, and know better, remember that every teacher is college educated which likely skews their statistic as a result.

I am looking into putting two grand nephews into private Christian schools ASAP. Bright kids not being challenged properly and too much Common Core garbage being taught. Gramma is a retired teacher in the same system, is advising that it may be time, the system that she taught in for a lifetime is going away fast. And this is in smaller city SE not in NYC or where you might expect it. I want them to get a good education, not be indoctrinated by leftists from NEA.

Blacks and Latinos are waking up to the fact that demonrats want to keep them dumb and on the plantation so ergo, no charter schools. On the flip side of the coin, demonrats want to keep those teacher union campaign contributions flowing in. Demonrats see both sides as a win, win for them.

For the past few years, the ideological American Left has used the Thanksgiving holiday as an opportunity to lash out and give us the same old and boring rant about how bad America is. An American leftist is generally characterized as someone who cannot help but bring ideology into every aspect of his life. I hesitate to say that everything is politicized when in fact, what is happening is that everything is ideologized. There is a great difference between the two things: human life is political by definition and politics can be good and bad, but ideology seeks to disorient and destroy that which is deeply human

Along with expressing gratitude for personal blessings this Thanksgiving, we should be thankful for the extraordinary faithfulness of President Trump. Despite unprecedented efforts to stop him, Trump has kept his vow to put the best interests of the American people first. Immediately after Trump was elected, a coup was launched to remove him from office by President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, Obama's weaponized CIA and FBI, along with leftover Obama staffers Trump should have fired. Not only did Obama's weaponized agencies conspire to destroy the president, they jailed and destroyed innocent people for being associated or supportive of him.

In January 2018 the Oxford English Dictionary added to its normal definition of what has traditionally been a flake of snow, a feathery ice crystal. Now the OED snowflake is an overly sensitive or easily offended person or persons who believe they are entitled to special treatment on account of their supposedly unique characteristics. Life for them comes, or should come, with trigger warnings and safe spaces. Trigger warnings are needed to alert people that a text or image may be disturbing or upsetting.

John Berman asked, “Given the fact each day it seems we learn more about what the president knew and when he knew it, are you concerned that this impeachment process is being rushed through before all the facts are known, more stuff may still come out?” Cohen said, “Well, I think things will come out.

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis is using the Thanksgiving holiday to remind voters to choose female candidates as way to transform America’s “misogynist society.” In an editorial for NBC News, the Knives Out star described the United States as a fundamentally sexist country characterized by a pervasive hatred of women. “Unfortunately, right now, we live in a misogynist society and a lot of men hate women,” Jamie Lee Curtis said. “They just do.

A US ambassador nominated by President Donald Trump who provided key testimony in his impeachment hearings was accused Wednesday of sexual misconduct by three women. Gordon Sondland, the US envoy to the European Union, denied the allegations, with his lawyer alleging that the accusers were trying to taint his credibility in the inquiry. The Portland Monthly published named accounts by three women who said that Sondland, a wealthy hotel owner from Seattle, retaliated against them professionally after they rejected him sexually. One of the women, Jana Solis, said she met Sondland in 2008 when she was seeking work in her position as a safety expert for hotels.

The old cliché is true: Politics is the art of the possible. That's why the Democrats need to abandon their quest to remove President Trump from office by way of impeachment — because doing so is going to be impossible. It was always going to be the longest of long shots. In all of American history, a president has never been removed through impeachment — let alone when the president's own party has held the majority in the Senate, where the impeachment trial takes place and conviction and removal requires an incredibly steep two-thirds majority vote. Add in the extreme polarization of the present

Where are the Democrats going next? Prior to this past week, for days Adam Schiff had concocted a pretty effective fix. He conducted secret impeachment inquiries in the House basement. Schiff kept quiet about his rigged rules. He orchestrated selective media leaks from the opening statements of favorable witnesses and then more or less threatened with ethical violations any Republican member who copied his tactics and leaked their own often effective cross-examinations. The result was that the public heard only from Schiff about Schiff’s damning slam-dunk hearings. A drip-by-drip melting of both Trump’s polls and resistance to impeachment followed.

Impeachment is a political process. No sentient being, after all, believes that Adam Schiff or Nancy Pelosi are good-faith guardians of constitutional order. And judging the process strictly on political grounds, it hasn’t been a success for Democrats. For one thing, impeachment, if it happens, will effectively end up being a partisan censure of the president. Democrats haven’t gotten any closer to convincing a single Senate Republican to contemplate removing the president. Certainly not Mitch McConnell, who says there will be a quick trial. Not even Mitt Romney, who, at this point, is aptly troubled but uncommitted. It’s highly probable, in fact, that a Senate trial run by Republicans,

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) records show that Chick-fil-A is not only stopping donations to Christian organizations but is funding left-wing extremist groups, including the anti-Christian Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

Walsh dedicated a whole Twitter thread to critiquing the body language of both Trump and First Lady Melania Trump as they welcomed Conan, the dog that took down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The president described Conan as the “the ultimate fighter” and awarded her a medal and a plaque for her role in the death al-Baghdadi.
