Legislative Report on Education.
August 1, 2013

Legislation often has consequences far beyond the overt goals seen in individual bills.

It has been my experience over the years that legislators use legislation for its immediate effect to either promote an ideology or repay supporters, but seldom for its long term effects on citizens over society.

Whether its called common core regarding educational standards or universal as in health care, or Work-for-all, it is one and the same thing. The federal government is positioning itself as a centralized authority over every aspect of human endeavour.

Here is but a tiny sampling of the dangerous bills in both the state legislature and in Congress.

House of Representatives bill number HR 5, by Cong. John Kline, (R-Wi) entitled euphemistically The Student Success Act. This bill with 19 amendments is one of the periodic re-authorizations of the 1965, Lyndon Johnson era, Elementary and Secondary Education Act - ESEA.

The ESEA met with much alarm by knowledgeable parents when it appeared due to its insinuating itself into local educational and parental rights issues. Think sex-education. Its subsequent re-authorizations and continual amendments make the original act almost unrecognizable and has raised that alarm to atomic proportions.

HR 5 adds Common Core (universal) educational goals and standards to the ESEA along with an Eric Cantor, (R-VA) amendment referred to as flexible funding which means that the federal dollars attach to the student, not the school, as that student moves through other schools including Charters.

The consequences of flexible funding, according to education watchers, is the opening up of the private and religious schools to this student and his very enticing federal dollars until the feds have universally nationalized education.

The bill further advances the idea of partnership between the feds and the state and the state and the family in turning the school away from academics and toward their use as delivery points for workforce training, health care delivery and humanistic lifestyle inculcation.

Along with HR 5 and its 19 total amendments, there are at least 20 bills, some with silly, catchy titles such as S 274, Children Eating Well - the CHEW Act, amending the ESEA itself, further expanding the federal and state roll in nutrition programs for students. Mental health counseling, HR628, workforce training, HR 803, the SKILLS Act - Supporting Knowledge and Investing in Lifelong Skills, early pre-school, innovative discipline techniques and many more before during and after school training sessions, S.326, B. Boxer, Community Learning Centers.

HR 5 has passed the House and is awaiting Sen. Harry Reid’s pleasure for its first Senate hearing. Reid already has the Senate version of the re-authorization waiting, S 3, Strengthening Our Schools and Students Act. The whole thing will end up as a compromise piece of legislation.

CRLC will post a full report on our website regarding all the bills surrounding HR 5 in a few days. In the meantime if you would like to further your understanding of the menace of common core and student services legislation please link to: Common Core: Education Without Representation www.whatiscommoncore.wordpress.com/about. And, http://www.k12.wa.us/esea/pubdocs/WaStateLegRecomforReauthorizationofESEA.pdf
you can also do a word search on HR 5 or common core standards.


AB 388, Student Success Act by Wes Chesbro. This amends a California, 1986, Matriculation Act which was supposed to guarantee that students entering community colleges succeeded in obtaining the desired education. Apparently the Community College directors have admitted that they are swamped with students unable to achieve that success due to the lack of education received in primary and secondary educational programs.

See www.csus.edu/ihelp. This is the California based Institute for Higher Education Leadership & Policy. Another non-elected, non representative body involved in setting public policy.

There are about 20 out of 104 education bills in Sacramento similar to the ones in Congress, dealing with programs and ideologies in education. Education as you may be beginning to realize has little to do with academics anymore and everything to do with currently faddish life skills training.


We are approaching the return of the California legislature from summer recess. The Assembly Committees will begin hearing bills on August 5 and the Senate on August 12.

Amongst the first 200 or so bills to be taken up in the Senate Appropriations Committee on August 12 are AB 154, the Midwives performing abortions without supervision, and AB 980, the bill deleting specific building code standards for abortion shops (I now refuse to call them clinics).

The hearings begin at 10:00 AM in the Senate room #4203. People are being urged to attend, be a presence for life. Also, write a letter to the editor of your local paper opposing these two bills, write something on your Facebook page urging other people to oppose the bill by contacting the Governor’s office online at: www.gov.ca.gov/m_contact.php. fax: 916-558-3160 or phone 916-916-2841.

Ab 174, Bob Bonta, (D-Oakland) Public School Health Centers, A mental health for all inclusive type bill. State funding for community agencies to set up mental health centers in schools. This compliments Cong. Barbara Lee’s HR 320, School-Based Clinics and Mental Health Services.

By the way, back in 2009, Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner authored AB 1080, School District: Leases and agreements. This amended the Education Code, authorizing schools to go into partnerships with other government agencies or community service groups by either leasing space on campuses or buying and leasing property to outside agencies. Also set for hearing in Senate Appropriations on August 12. Anyone interested in the Planned Parenthood situation at Roosevelt High School in East L.A. take note.

See how bills can become sleepers?

SB 491, Ed. Hernandez,(D-W. Covina) Nurse Practitioners, Amends the Nursing Practice Act authorizing nurse practitioners (with questionable national certification) to perform certain acts including physical diagnoses and prescribing drugs and devices. Read birth control pills and products. Hearing set for August 6 in Assembly Business, Profession and Consumer Protection Committee. Ha, consumer protection, that’s a laugh.

SB 493, Ed. Hernandez, (D-W. Covina) Pharmacy Practice. Authorizes pharmacists to administer drugs and biological products ordered by a prescriber (nurse midwife?) including hormonal contraceptives. Also to be heard in the BPCP Com.

AB 626, Nancy Skinner, (D-Oakland), School Nutrition. Amends the 2002 initiative After School Education and Safety Program Act micromanaging the school cafeteria and, apparently creating centralized food preparation centers.

This parallels U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) Students and Nutrition, the CHEW Act, amendment to the ESEA.


Central Valley run-off candidate Andy Vidak, (R) won that Senate race over a very pro abort Latina woman candidate. Vidak will be adding one desperately needed Republican vote to the legislature.

52nd Assembly District ended with not one of the 9 candidates receiving a majority vote so there will be a run-ff for that seat. Republican woman, Dorothy Pineda came in 3rd in a race with seven Democrats with Paul Leon, formerly a Republican now a No-Party-Preference candidate obtaining the most votes. Leon is currently the Mayor of Ontario and claims quietly to be pro-life.

Bakersfield’s valiant pro life defender Tim Palmquist is still hanging in there with his Human Life Ordinance. He and his group are seeking to obtain a YES vote of the city council to authorize his HLO which would deny any right to take an innocent human life within the city boundaries.

While the ordinance at no times mentions abortion the pro aborts have insisted that this is a move to undercut their rights to abortion in Bakersfield. If an innocent human life is taken within the city limits it authorizes the surviving victimized family to sue the person who took that life.

The local newspaper showed the face of a woman protesting the ordinance. Her look was one of pure hatred. Let’s all pray that this does not become the face of Bakersfield.

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
