Mark Schauer on Education
In Calhoun County, there are big, gigantic, multi-million dollar high schools popping up all over the place. The primary reason is a great deal of community pride. Schauer works this angle and tosses in: he does not care about the education of the school kids, but the wages and benefits of the teachers.
On top of it all, there is the Common Core curriculum standards being forced upon us by the Obama administration. It will brainwash generations of school kids by not teaching the truth about history, the Constitution or America.
Proponent's argument to vote Yes: Rep. BETSY MARKEY (D, CO-4): This legislation will improve the learning environment for our children, reduce energy costs and create new jobs across the country. Green schools not only save school districts money but also teach the importance of sustainable living to children at a young age.
Opponent's argument to vote No: Rep. GLENN THOMPSON (R, PA-5): We all know our Nation is drowning in a sea of red ink. The bill we're debating today would add an estimated $40 billion in new spending. And despite the majority's hollow promises of fiscal responsibility, there's nothing in the legislation to offset this hefty price tag with spending reductions elsewhere. This is just more of the same borrow and spend, spend and borrow policy that we've seen under this majority and this administration.
