The government has crossed the line when it comes to privacy of the American citizens! The schools want to monitor our children’s cell phones. See Video Here
To monitor our children’s cell phones would mean that school officials would be listening in on the conversations between parents and their children.
Tarheeltalker published “What Privacy” on his blog saying schools allows parents to track what their children are buying for breakfast and lunch while at school. This story does not end there, School officials in New Canaan, Ct are in the very preliminary stages of considering if they should add radio frequency tags to student and staff id cards and possibly place them on school property says Tarheeltalker.
How much longer will the American people allow the government and schools to take over the lives and privacy of our children? As voters we better start keeping up with what’s happening daily in government and our schools! We’re losing our freedom and our privacy faster than I have every seen in my life time. We’re becoming a Country under the control of dictators, we wake-up before it’s to late to change course!
This digging into our privacy by schools and the government is happening at the time the Obama administration is calling it racist profiling to ask illegals in this Country for their papers! We as Americans are stupid if we let this continue!
Empty Bucket "No Money Left"
The nation’s public schools are falling under severe financial stress as states slash education spending and drain federal stimulus money that staved off deep classroom cuts and widespread job losses.
School districts have already suffered big budget cuts since the recession began two years ago, but experts say the cash crunch will get a lot worse as states run out of stimulus dollars.
The result in many hard-hit districts: more teacher layoffs, larger class sizes, smaller paychecks, fewer electives and extracurricular activities, and decimated summer school programs.
The situation is particularly ugly in California, where school districts are preparing for mass layoffs and swelling class sizes as the state grapples with another massive budget shortfall. SOURCE
MORE BAD NEWS FOR SCHOOLS!
School districts across Maine learned Monday how much education aid they can expect from the state for the 2010-11 school year.
The allocations reflect a $92 million reduction in state aid to public schools in the year that starts July 1 to offset recession-related revenue losses.
Only 12 of 183 districts will get increased state aid, which the Maine Department of Education bases on a funding formula that accounts for differences in property values and student enrollment. Portland, Maine’s largest district, will take a $4 million hit. Portland expects $6 million less in state and federal money. SOURCE
The democrats were warned of this happening when Obama started handing out the stimulus money for schools and welfare! The Welfare roll has over doubled and the schools are stuck between the Obama rock and a hard spot. Now the stimulus money is running out for all those projects that the schools started and the States will have to give the needed money to keep them going. Where do you think the States will get that money, easy answer…from you the taxpayer by raising your State taxes of course!
Parents must actively oppose this hijacking of the classroom for political purposes. Please join the national effort to restore to public education a proper understanding of the role of government-subsidized schools. You can help de-politicize the learning environment by calling your child out of school if your child’s school allows students to remain silent during instructional time on the Day of Silence.
Parents should no longer passively countenance the political usurpation of public school classrooms through student silence. Read More
