Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is resigning. One of the early questions about Duncan was why he and Obama weren’t shy about defending Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar,” Kevin Jennings. It was so ugly, the Washington Times apologized for having to talk about it. Duncan took the position in 2009, as did Jennings, who left in 2011.
The Obama administration is stonewalling serious inquiries about sexual filth propagated by a senior presidential appointee who is responsible for promoting and implementing federal education policy. Democrats clearly are terrified of ruffling the feathers of their activist homosexual supporters, who are an influential part of the Democratic party’s base. This scandal, however, is not merely about homosexual behavior; it is about promoting sex between children and adults – and it’s time for President Obama to make clear that abetting such illegal perversion has no place in his administration.
It is curious why White House officials and Education Secretary Arne Duncan believe it’s worth it politically to continue taking arrows for defending Kevin Jennings, who is Mr. Obama’s controversial “safe schools czar.” The evidence suggesting he is unfit to serve as a senior presidential appointee is startling and plentiful. It was revealed this week that Mr. Jennings was involved in promoting a reading list for children 13 years old or older that made the most explicit sex between children and adults seem normal and acceptable. This brought up anew Mr. Jennings’ past controversies, such as his seeming encouragement of sex between one of his high school students and a much older man as well as his praise for Harry Hay, a notorious supporter of the North American Man Boy Love Association.

Over 4,000 employees of the Department of Education received an email (presumably on government, taxpayer paid computers) encouraging them to attend Al Sharpton’s rally at a high school football field at the same time Glenn Beck’s Restore Honor rally was underway on Saturday. The email was from Arne Duncan, Obama’s Education Secretary. There must have been a high degree of angst in the Sharpton entourage, knowing that Glenn Beck’s crowd would dwarf his own knee-jerk reaction to Restore Honor – where Sharpton believed he could save MLK’s I Have a Dream speech from all those hideous Caucasians…at the same time Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, was a featured speaker at Beck’s event.
2001, Obama’s current Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan was CEO of Chicago Public Schools.
2009 (March), How did our Governors and departments of education buy-in to Common Core? What triggered the adoption?
In March 2009, the Department of Education revealed its backdoor method of gaining federal control of state educational policy when Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the Race to the Top (RTTT) program—an opportunity for states to compete for a share of $4.35 billion reserved for state education incentives by the American Recovery and Restoration Act. To even be eligible for funding, states had to promise that they would fully adopt a set of common college- and career-ready standards supplemented with only 15% of their own standards. Applicants also had to demonstrate that they would expand their state’s longitudinal data system to be in the same format as other states and to contain new data including student health, demographics, and success in postsecondary education.
Brad Henry [former Democrat Oklahoma Governor] took State Fiscal Stabilization Funds (SFSF)…the underpinnings of the P20/W Council (Prek-20 years and Workforce) were cemented in place to collect massive amounts of data on public school children without consent of their parents thanks to the changes in FERPA laws under Arne Duncan and the Obama administration.
2014 (March), The Globalists
…just this week, an invitation-only conference hosted by former Florida Governor and pro-Common Core ringleader Jeb Bush entitled “Globalization of Higher Education” took place in Texas. Among the attendees: Hillary Clinton, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, former World Bank President Robert Zoellick, UNESCO officials, university presidents, and more. While higher education appears to be the next target of reformers, the globalization of K-12 schooling is on the verge of completion — at least if the American people do not rise up and stop it.
Arne Duncan, as the Secretary of Education went to each state and said that each state has a couple of months to write a grant to become eligible for federal funding under the stimulus package — federal grant funding. This was a time when austerity had hit hard in the wake of the great recession of 2008/2009. A lot of states were desperate for funding. Without any real deliberate process, these states wrote the grants, got the really influential signatures on the grants. When they signed off on the grants, they signed off on the Race to the Top (RTTT), mandates.
