ONLINE PETITION TO IMPEACH RATLIFF

Aug 16, 2013 by

BREAKING: “ONLINE PETITION SEEKS TO IMPEACH THOMAS RATLIFF” – BY GLENN EVANS, LONGVIEW NEWS-JOURNAL – 8.16.13

[Comments from Donna Garner — Fact:  In the Republican Primary Elections for Texas State Board of Education (5.30.12), Thomas Ratliff only defeated his conservative challenger, Randy Stevenson, by a little over 4 percentage points — 52.09% to 47.90%. That is not much of a victory for someone with the name recognition of Ratliff and for someone who had at his disposal millions of dollars in campaign funds because of his being a Microsoft lobbyist for at least 13 years.

By the way, when Thomas Ratliff says he recuses himself on the Texas State Board of Education whenever he has conflicts of interest with his clients (e.g., Microsoft), his abstentions mean his district suffers from (1) DENIAL OF REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT and (2) TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION because in such SBOE votes his constituents have no voice on the dispersal of their public funds.

 

Longview News-Journal reporter Glenn Evans is way off when it comes to explaining the common core. The TEKS are the curriculum standards passed by the Texas State Board of Education in the four core subjects – English/Language Arts/Reading, Science, Social Studies, and Math; but the TEKS follow the traditional, fact-based, academic philosophy of education.  The Common Core Standards are the Obama administration’s takeover by the federal government of the public schools and promote subjectivity, opinions, emotions, and the social justice agenda. Therefore, there are no similarities between Texas’ emphases in the four core subject areas vs. the Common Core Standards promoted by Bill Gates/Microsoft/Thomas Ratliff.
