    In recent election cycles, more than a few Republican presidential candidates have boasted about their plans to scrap the federal Department of Education altogether. Indeed, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) recently told a group of voters, “I honestly think we don’t need a Department of Education.”


    GOP candidate Ben Carson, however, doesn’t want to eliminate the cabinet agency; he wants to repurpose it. The Huffington Post reported yesterday:


    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Wednesday he would use the U.S. Department of Education to police speech on college campuses.


    During an interview, Glenn Beck asked Carson if he would shut down the Education Department as president.


    “I actually have something I would use the Department of Education to do,” Carson explained. “It would be to monitor our institutions of higher education for extreme political bias and deny federal funding if it exists.”


    I’ve read this a few times, and watched the video of the exchange, and I can’t help but wonder if he realizes how ridiculous this sounds.


    What Carson seems to be saying is that he wants a federal cabinet agency to “monitor” speech on college campuses, and if a Carson administration decides it doesn’t approve of the school’s politics, the Republican would cut off universities’ federal funding.


    In other words, the far-right candidate who complains on a near-daily basis about “political correctness” envisions federal officials “monitoring” on-campus speech to ensure Carson doesn’t find it offensive.
    I’d love to hear more from the candidate about how he would use the Department of Education to “monitor our institutions of higher education.” In June, Carson told a group of Republicans that he was “thinking very seriously” about adding “a covert division of people who look like the people in this room, who monitor what government people do.”


    Would a similar “covert division” be used by a Carson administration on college campuses?

    If colleges couldn't indoctrinate students with fringe-left propaganda, what reason would they have to exist anymore?

    The Republicans are a bunch of lying self-serving power hungry assholes. The Democrats on the other hand are a bunch of lying self-serving power hungry assholes. Pick your poison

    Rubio wants to get rid of dept of education?
    share economy pushing forward
    we will just have religious madras like in Afghanistan
    girls will only be educated for having kids/quills
    and poor kids don't need an education,
    it will be just pay Rubios cronies for their charter school or learn to be a temp worker on Task Rabbit where you can devalue your vocational worth by underbidding hundreds for a gig instead of a career.
    they really want to destroy public education to segregate us more and keep the populous stupid

    This sounds similar to the obama administration forcing communities to accept subsidized and section 8 housing or lose federal aid for infrastructure.

    Carson and obama would be wrong.

    These candidates all spend their time thinking up these loony social plans. How about a plan to create jobs, increase American manufacturing, promote small businesses and promote individual entrepreneurship.

    Until they start talking seriously, I won't pay attention to anything they say.

    This is why I hate the right vs left stuff...

    We all know colleges are going off the deep end with this stuff and are indoctrinating kids. I would not call it "liberal" though...these PC nazis hide behind that banner.

    But since it just became a right vs left thing all the left leaning people will "defend it" (which means pretend it's not a problem) and the right leaning people will continue to validate these pure f*** ups as actual liberals.


    Example...if the doctor delivering you when you were born said you were a male or female and it was recorded on your birth certificate it's settled. If your kid's school is teaching them this is open for debate then something is wrong. That's not political. It's moronic.


    If it's public then stick to facts and logic. Political ideology is not different than religion..you're free to go nuts with that stuff in private.
