Calvin’s Commentary: If your children are in public schools, get them out! They are not in educational classes to enable them to read, write and do math and get a job, but to be indoctrinated in socialistic, communist brainwashing centers to reorganize their moral compass from godly rules to those of socialist communists dictators’ promises of utopia. The first step to accomplish that task is to break down their moral fiber and their relationship with parents and parental respect. They must destroy their views of Christianity and the Bible – your religion, the religion that the vast majority of Americans claim to be. Our schools, by their nature, are dooming your children to believe that America and American Values are evil! Please watch this short video that is not a commentary on the values of public government schools, but about how they are not only retaining their powerful territorial mind-bending rule over your children, but how they are growing their evil agenda exponentially, paying for it with the dollar$ from your own wallet$ and purse$, Mr. & Mrs. Parents USA! Don’t miss this short video! ▬ Donna Calvin ▬ Monday, January 14, 2013
America’s public education system is failing. We’re spending more money on education but not getting better results for our children.
That’s because the machine that runs the K-12 education system isn’t designed to produce better schools. It’s designed to produce more money for unions and more donations for politicians.
For decades, teachers’ unions have been among our nation’s largest political donors. As Reason Foundation’s Lisa Snell has noted, the National Education Association (NEA) alone spent $40 million on the 2010 election cycle. As the country’s largest teachers union, the NEA is only one cog in the infernal machine that robs parents of their tax dollars and students of their futures.
Students, teachers, parents, and hardworking Americans are all victims of this political machine–a system that takes money out of taxpayers’ wallets and gives it to union bosses, who put it in the pockets of politicians.
Our kids deserve better.

It’s Time To Break The Machine: The Truth Behind Teachers Unions #EdReform
From 2010 to 2011, as teachers were being laid off or having their salaries frozen due to strained (or busted) school budgets, NEA Executive Director John Wilson saw his pay increase more than $100,000–to a whopping $492,484.00 in total compensation. NEA’s President, Dennis Van Roekel wasn’t as fortunate. In 2011, he only brought raked in $460,060.00 in total compensation. These are but two of the executives that run the nation’s largest teachers union. Yet, there are many more at the NEA who collect six-figure salaries paid for the dues taken from teachers who are paid by taxpayers.
America’s education system has become nothing more than a political-public education scheme–a machine, if you will–that is fleecing taxpayers while robbing children of a better education and life.
For those public-education “graduates” who may still have trouble with reading comprehension, a new video co-produced by ReasonTV and the Moving Picture Institute brilliantly captures the problem and why it’s time to break the political-education machine.
