On July 5, 2016 Félix Pérez wrote, “Hillary Clinton assures educators they will have a ‘seat at the table’” for Education Votes.
In that article he quotes Clinton as saying,
“I want to say, right from the outset, that I’m with you. And if I’m fortunate enough to be elected president, educators will have a partner in the White House – and you’ll always have a seat at the table . . .
I’m committed to making sure every child in this country receives a world-class education, with good schools and good teachers, no matter what ZIP code they live in. . .
So much of what happens inside your classrooms is determined by what happens outside your classrooms. . .
We need to tackle all the problems holding our kids back – and we need to do it together, as one American community. Let’s create more community schools – and more partnerships between schools, social services and non-profit organizations to offer a range of support and opportunities for kids. . .
As president, I’ll launch a national campaign to modernize and elevate the profession of teaching. . .
So I’m asking you – and educators across the country – to work with me. Advise me, hold me accountable.”
On April 18, 2016 Dr. Susan Berry reported Hillary Clinton’s position on the common core,
“Clinton avoided a question about whether Common Core-aligned tests should be used to evaluate teachers. . .
In November of 1992, Marc Tucker, president of the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE), was involved in the early stages of what would ultimately become the Common Core standards reform. . .
Tucker clearly saw Bill and Hillary Clinton’s advance to the White House as the start of the fulfillment of this “school-to-work” initiative, one that is now actively shared by many establishment governors of both parties, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and local state business and industry groups. The Common Core standards and the student data collected through the Common Core-aligned tests will serve as a vehicle to provide big business with a government-guaranteed labor force – a genuine planned economy.”
Our children deserve a president who wants to educate them not make them slaves.
