Education

A Powerful Weapon When In The hands of the wrong persons or Federal Government

Our Position On Education

We believe its time to get back to basics in education. We need to reform and restructure our educational system from limiting the Federal governments role and regulations to the role of States and taxation methods. Our children's education belongs in the hands of the family and their community not government. Our families and children from grade school through college deserve a more open and responsive educational system with greater freedom of choice in the type of schooling at affordable cost.

We further believe that the Federal Governments Department of Education should be abolished and the funds it receives put back in the hands of the States and the people of those states. Since the inception of the DOE, under the Jimmy Carter Administration, our educational standards and ranking throughout the world has steadily worsened. The growth of charter schools and home education over the past several years has by far and away outperformed the level of students attending public schools. This fact is further proof that there is no place for the Federal government in the role of educator or supervisor of our educational system. This is better left to the community or parents.

The American Reform Party is further developing its official position and recommendation for the reform of our educational system. We will post our entire position on the subject in the coming days. Please check back with us.

Read this one over slowly and absorb the facts that are within this definition! We love this word and believe that it will become a recognized English word.

Ineptocracy

-(in-ep-toc-ra-cy)

A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Over the past few years under the watchful eye of our current government, our higher education system has become a unreachable for many Americans as tuition fees have grown at a staggering rate.  

When looking at databases of colleges and universities, some tuition prices have soared to over $48,000 for a single.  This record high in tuition prices have caused even students with college scholarships can't afford to stay in school.  Although enrolment rates in law schools and medical school hasn't changed much through this time, which is a direct result of the crumbling job market because…

OBAMA’S MANIFESTO:  NO ECONOMICS DEGREE REQUIRED

by Sharon Sebastian
posted on Wednesday, June 08, 2011

The latest Washington Post-ABC poll reports that 59% of Americans disapprove of the President’s handling of the economy. The joke is that if Obama ever does anything right, it will be by accident. As Obama steers the nation on a perilous financial course, some still assign a purity of intent to Obama while acknowledging his disastrous failings. Some contend that Obama’s lack of a business degree or business experience has failed him. Other Americans keenly recognize a pattern of premeditation as the nation’s economy plunges into a downward spiral. When it comes to emptying out the U.S. treasury, losing…

Obama On A Collision Course With Your Faith

Bolshevik: a Marxist radical or revolutionary. The term comes from the word Bol’ she, which means bigger, as in bigger government. As true Marxists, the Bolsheviks sought to eliminate God out of society. Government sought to become the god of the people. In Soviet Communist Russia, a Bolshevik was a member of the liberal-left Russian Social Democratic Workers Party.  Recently, President Barack Obama scoffed that Republicans characterized him as “a Bolshevik,” well knowing that the term today means Marxist or Communist.

 

Today, Marxists/Communists still seek to separate people from their God. One way of doing so…
