Rep. John Kline, Republican Chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee, issued the following press release regarding the House Version of the Reauthorization of ESEA, which will be voted on tomorrow, December 2, or later this week:
Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC): Replace NCLB to Improve Education, Empower Parents | Education & the Workforce Committee
Compare Charlotte's harsh critique of the House and Senate versions of the Reauthorization of ESEA legislation (above Rense link) which includes her request you call your elected officials at 202-224-3121 to demand a NO vote on House and Senate bills, and a call to Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, requesting him to call for postponement of the vote on the Reauthorization of ESEA.
Rep. John Kline's press release which includes North Carolina Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx's words of praise for the Reauthorization of ESEA.
Anyone from outer space would think that Charlotte and Virginia live on different planets.
Call, call, call your representatives and senators immediately (today) and demand they vote NO on the House and Senate bills which, through misleading wording (semantic deception) lead the average American to believe the legislation will reduce the federal/international footprint from education at the local level.
Call, Call, Call Utah Sen. Mike Lee's office and thank him for exposing in the Congressional Record the illegal shenanigans which have taken place related to passage of this bill, including the rush for a vote on a 1,059-page bill that few Senators and Representatives, and no taxpayers, have had time to read, much less study. Please ask him to publicly (on the Senate floor) call for postponement of the House and Senate votes to provide for a thorough Congressional investigation of these perceived procedural illegalities.
Such a postponement will allow congressmen and senators and YOU (the parent, teacher, and taxpayer) adequate time to study this 1,059-page bill which, if passed, will end many of the protections and freedoms guaranteed under the United States Constitution.
One notable freedom Americans will lose, through tax-funded school choice/charters (with unelected school boards) which are a major "new" requirement found in both bills, is their right to vote (aka "taxation without representation").
