"The U.S. Public Service Academy will be an undergraduate institution devoted to developing civilian leaders for the public sector. Modeled on the military academies, the Academy will offer four years of tuition-free education in exchange for five years of civilian service following graduation. Its mission will be to educate, develop, and inspire civilian leaders who have the character, intellect, and experience necessary to serve the nation honorably and effectively, and who are committed to devoting their lives to public service.
The initiative to build the Academy was launched by two Teach For America alumni in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, when the American people witnessed serious failures of public leadership at all levels of government. Since it was established in early 2006, the Academy has made tremendous progress.
We have built an advisory board of more than 50 experts in public policy, education, the military, business, and non-profit. To help us draft our Blueprint, we created a Blueprint Advisory Board with more than five dozen experts in higher education, the military, and government.
In the 110th Congress, we had identical bipartisan bills before the Senate (S. 960) and the House (HR 1671), with 24 senators and 123 representatives signed on as co-sponsors. Many members of the Obama administration including Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Rahm Emanuel, and Tom Daschle are supporters of the Academy.
The Academy has earned endorsements from prominent individuals such as Madeleine Albright, Mike Huckabee, and Sandra Day OConnor; several dozen well-respected organizations such as Americas Promise, City Year, and Youth Service America; and more than 70 college presidents...
We invite you to learn more about how the U.S. Public Service Academy will meet the changing needs of Americas public institutions during the 21st century."

This is probably one of the scariest things I have seen since Obama was elected!! Below is an excerpt from the website made for this so-called "academy"....
ACORN UNIVERSITY ??
Savage was talking about this yesterday. They are attempting to make this required for children?
It won’t last....
Well after all if Obama gets his way, the wounded heroes will be seeking their health care with 3rd party insurance agencies. Walter Reed will not be needed anymore.
HOW TO WORK LESS AND GET PAID MORE
HOW TO WORK ENOUGH OVERTIME TO DOUBLE YOUR PENSION CHECKS
HOW TO SPEND YOUR VACATION DAYS, HOLIDAYS AND SICK DAYS. OR, HOW TO SAVE THOSE DAYS AND RETIRE YEARS EARLIER.
HOW TO MAKE SOMEONE WAIT WHILE YOU DO NOTHING ("I can make you stand there and wait and you can't do anything about it").
As a West Point alum, all I can do is shake my head and chuckle (else I would scream!).
The words below are the lyrics to a song that pays tribute to the Corps of Cadets of West Point, a song that plebes memorize during beast barracks. I can’t imagine any new civilian academy will be similar to West Point or Annapolis in any way, other than having a federal budget.
The Corps, The Corps, The Corps
The Corps bareheaded, salute it
With eyes up thanking our God
That we of the corps are treading
Where they of the corps have trod
They are here in ghostly assemblage
The men of the corps long dead
And our hearts are standing attention
While we wait for their passing tread
We sons of today, we salute you
You sons of an earlier day
We follow close order behind you
Where you have pointed the way
The long grey line of us stretches
Through the years of a century told
And the last man feels to his marrow
The grip of your far off hold
Grip hands with us now, though we see not
Grip hands with us strengthen our hearts
As the long line stiffens and straightens
With the thrill that your presence imparts
Grip hands, though it be from the shadows
While we swear as you did of yore
Or living or dying to honor
The Corps, and The Corps, and The Corps
Ah the Politburo school.
Huckafraud is in on this? And people wonder why he’s called that.
Walter Reed’s closing down next year. It’s been on the shut down list for a couple of years now.
in exchange for five years of civilian service following graduation
Will that be a Union job too? Money pit

Mother Teresa is coming back or we’re paying to train citizens to be Democrats, they’re holier than thou you know
Actually if you combine it with the vampire economy it is later than you think. It is more like 1935 to 1939.
This is kind of redundant considering the current state of affairs in academia?
The usual witless idiots go along without thinking out the consequences.
