Tying One On: “Green Ribbon Schools” defy sobriety

http://www.conservativecrusader.com/articles/tying-one-on-green-ribbon-schools-defy-sobriety
Excerpt:
but the Green Ribbon Schools plan is a collaboration among the Education Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the White House Council for Environmental Quality. It’s not just Duncan, but the entire administration that seems to be wandering around in a besotted stupor.

article continues mentions collectivist thinking and solutions as in wealth redistribution.

Warning: Obama Ed aims at U.S. takeover

The concern is about Democrat-driven plans in the U.S. Senate to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, a massive federal program last reauthorized in 2001 as the No Child Left Behind Act.

“HSLDA’s federal relations staff have read this 868-page bill, and we believe that while it does not directly impact homeschool freedom, the bill will 1) increase the federal role in education at the expense of state, local and parental control, and 2) will greatly increase the pressure on states to align their curriculum and standards, resulting in de facto national education standards,” said the report compiled by Melanie P. Palazzo, the organization’s congressional action program director, and William A. Estrada of the organization’s federal relations office.

HSLDA said the Senate Education Commission already has voted to approve the plan, but at the request of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., there will be a hearing Nov. 8. The homeschooling group is urging its constituents to contact committee members and express concern.

The group fears the bill “will greatly increase the federal government’s control over education.”

More than it already has?

I didn't think it was possible to have more of something than all of it.

Definitely a arth ping.

I'm sure there are other *government run amok* ping list holders who have lists this could be pinged out to but am falling short in remembering who they are at the moment.
