FSCCC Review of Bush Education Plan Published on the Pulse 2016

January, 2016

The Pulse 2016 published Dr. Effrem's latest article, a review of Jeb Bush's education plan titled: Six Reasons Jeb's Plan Fails to End Federal Tyranny in Education.  Here is the introduction and list of concerns:

Former Florida Governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush released his education plan on January 18th.  In it, he tries hard to sound like he cares about and supports local control and parental autonomy. In fact, the document, on pre-K through grade 12 issues, is merely a kinder, gentler form of federal tyranny that continues unconstitutional government involvement in pre-K, high stakes testing, data mining, and K-12 education in general. The plan fails on multiple important fronts:
  1. Federal Involvement in Education
  2. Preschool
  3. Title I and IDEA Portability
  4. Data Collection and Data Privacy
  5. Promotion of Charter Schools
  6. Continued Dependence on a Flawed High Stakes System

We appreciate our ongoing partnership with the Pulses 2016 and the American Principles Project.  Please read the whole article and share!
