As Obama declares he will start enforcing laws with his pen and phone, therefore bypassing Congress and unilaterally implementing regulations and creating laws at his descretion…we find out more about the direction he wants to take our schools.
Last month, President Obama declared he’ll “act on my own,” that he doesn’t need Congress to exercise his power.“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation. I’ve got a pen . . . and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions,” he asserted. “One of the things that I’m going to be talking to my Cabinet about is how do we use all the tools available to us.”He’s already made good on his promise to act unilaterally — delaying the ObamaCare mandate on businesses again last week and changing the rules for immigration enforcement.But what Obama didn’t say is that, behind the scenes, he’s radically increasing the government’s reach. His tools aren’t laws or even executive orders — it’s thousands of new pages of new rules in the Federal Register, the nation’s official book of regulations, controlling everything from home finance to car deals to city zoning.An unelected, unappointed shadowy network of leftie advocates are rewriting these rules — posing a direct threat to Congress’ legislative authority. Yet alarmingly few lawmakers are aware of its clout. Likewise, few in the private sector know about its unchecked power and influence over business and finance — or even local housing and school policies.
“Schools can’t suspend bullies”
One troubling new area of regulation: rules for discipline at your children’s schools, so that teachers can no longer kick students who misbehave out of the classroom. They’re relaxing the protocols for punishing even violent kids, compounding fears about classroom safety in a post-Newtown world.”
With this new revelation… It’s no wonder Obama and other democrats oppose school choice, they want to control not only what our children learn but how we discipline our children. Somehow for a former Constitutional scholar he has forgotten his oath of office to the Constitution, which states in Article II that he is responsible for enforcing laws,he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, not rewriting laws or creating new laws without the legislative branch.
As parents it is our duty to stand up for our children and decide what is best for our schools and their safety. Keeping disruptive students in class will only hinder a successful learning environment and will only reward bad behavior. We must fight against these new policies and regulations that lessen the standards we expect of our own children and demand better from our schools, the federal government and those who are responsible for enforcing the laws in our country.
