What Jeb Bush Should Have Said

By Laurence M. Vance

August 25, 2020

Former Florida governor and failed Republican presidential candidate, Jeb Bush, was recently interviewed for Education Week by Frederick “Rick” Hess, a resident scholar and director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI).

Here is how Hess introduced Bush:

Gov. Jeb Bush has been a leader on efforts to improve schooling for more than two decades. He has mentored a generation of governors, carried the banner for reforms including school choice and accountaility, and launched ExcelinEd, a hugely influential voice in the world of K-12 schooling. During his tenure in office and in the many years since, Gov. Bush has wrestled with the practical challenges of how elected leaders can help make schools work for kids. I reached out to see how he is thinking about coronavirus and education.

I have read the interview so you don’t have to.

I want to focus on the fourth question that Hess asked Bush and Bush’s response:

Rick: As a former governor, what else do you think Washington and the Department of Education should be doing right now?

Bush: We are a bottom-up country, and that’s one of our greatest and most enduring strengths. We’re 50 unique and individual states, growing and thriving in different ways. The states are “incubators of democracy,” because that’s where great ideas are developed and tried—and where citizens have a strong voice in shaping their future.

To be candid, Washington’s role is to support innovation. Let the states and communities lead and determine what is best for their families. Governors and state legislatures can, and often do, act quickly to solve problems. I encourage them to jump in with bold ideas that can get their education systems moving forward, even better than before.

Wrong, Jeb, so wrong. Washington’s role is not to support innovation. Washington’s role is to do absolutely nothing. No Pell Grants, no student loans, no school breakfast and lunch programs, no Head Start funding, no educational vouchers, no research grants to colleges, no Higher Education Act, no Elementary and Secondary Education Act, no bilingual-education mandates, no math and science initiatives, no Title IX mandates, no school accreditation, no anti-discrimination policies, no standardized-testing requirements, no Common Core standards, no Race to the Top funds, no No No Child Left Behind Act, no desegregation orders, no special-education mandates, no oversight, no Department of Education, and not one dime of the taxpayers’ money spent on education.

Every state has provisions in its constitution for the operation of K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. The federal government has been given no such authority by its Constitution. If there are to be any public schools; that is, government schools, they should be limited to state-government schools, fully supported and supervised by state governments.

Jeb Bush should have recommended my two new books on education.

Education in a Free Society is a collection of essays written over the past ten years for the Future of Freedom Foundation and LewRockwell.com. Throughout these essays, there are ten things relating to education that resonate:

  1. The problem with public schools is that they are government schools.
  2. Public education is socialistic.
  3. Charter schools are still public schools.
  4. Education is a service just like car repair and hair styling.
  5. All schools should be privately operated and privately funded.
  6. It is the responsibility of parents to education their children.
  7. The Constitution nowhere authorizes the federal government to have anything to do with education or even mentions education.
  8. It is an illegitimate purpose of government to educate anyone or pay for anyone’s education.
  9. Republicans are just as responsible as Democrats for the mess that is public education.
  10. No government at any level should have any control whatsoever over any school or the education of any child.

    School Choice for Whom? is a collection of essays written over the past 15 years for the Future of Freedom Foundation and LewRockwell.com. Throughout these essays, there are seven things relating to educational vouchers and school choice that resonate:

    1. If it is not the business of government to fund public schools, then it is certainly not the business of government to fund private schools.
    2. Education is a service just like car repair or hair styling.
    3. Giving some Americans the choice of where to spend other American’s money to educate their children is wealth redistribution.
    4. He who pays the piper calls the tune.
    5. Vouchers are not an intermediate step toward a free market in education.
    6. Conservatives and libertarians who oppose government housing vouchers (Section 😎 and food vouchers (food stamps) are terribly inconsistent when they support government education vouchers.
    7. In a free society, all education vouchers for “school choice” would be privately funded.

    Republicans used to talk about abolishing the federal Department of Education. Now they just want to reform it. Jeb Bush is clueless.

    The Best of Laurence M. Vance

A Most Consequential Presidency

Donald_Trump_signs_an_Executive_Order_promoting_Agriculture_and_Rural_Prosperity

Trump has made the GOP an America First party. He has enacted America First policies on trade and immigration. He has revived the economic nationalism that built America in the 19th century. Globalism has been relegated to the ash heap of history.

Trump plans to steal the election.  He and the GOPers are already laying plans for multiple court challenges in all states where he loses and the vote is close.  They will protest absentee and mail-in votes.  They will appeal until it gets to the Republican US Supreme Court.

In Her Own Words This Time, Melania Hits Empathetic Notes
.By Philip Wegmann - RCP Staff

Whether it was Melania or an aide who had stolen material from her predecessor four years earlier, the current first lady stole the show on night two of the 2020 Republican convention. This time, she did so undeniably in her own words. It would have been difficult to plagiarize anyway. The main topics: her own immigrant story and love of America and life in the time of coronavirus.

Revenge of the Normies

Matthew Continetti, Washington Free Beacon August 26, 2020
 

The 2020 Republican National Convention is the Trump presidency in microcosm: precedent is overturned, norms disregarded, and authorities ignored or dismissed in favor of the men and women who comprise the Trump coalition. It's polarizing and riveting. And the whole thing makes for great television.

Why I Walked Away From Democrats to Support Trump

Vernon Jones, CNN August 26, 2020

The purpose of my speech was to serve as a culture shock, helping others break free of the groupthink-shackles placed on us by White liberals. Black Americans like me are free people with free minds, writes Vernon Jones.

The Morning Briefing: RNC Night 2—FLOTUS Is Classier and More Attractive Than Any Democrat Alive

RNC's Second Night Finishes With a FLOTUS Flourish

Hump Day greetings, my Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Let us try to keep things weird on our terms going forward.

The second night of the COVID RNC was an interesting mix of patriotic counter-messaging to the gloom-and-doom party on the other side of the aisle. Once again, I marveled at how much better the Republicans have gotten at this sort of thing of late. I only hope that it isn't too late and all for naught.

Tyler's nightly RNC wrap-up is here.

You have to understand how remarkable this RNC is from the perspective of an activist who has been watching the GOP get in its own way for decades. It's surprising and amusing to me that the Republicans have finally learned how to play the game of politics in a more functional manner after a non-politician became the party's standard-bearer.

The RNC speakers continued to relentlessly ...

The RNC’s aspirational message couldn’t be more different from Dems’ radicalism

August 25, 2020 | 4:05pm | Updated

The Republican National Convention is underway, and it ­offers a hopeful, pro-American agenda that stands in stark contrast to the radicalism that radiated out of the Democratic National Convention last week.

The Democrats’ convention ­revealed a disturbing truth about the party’s November ticket. While Joe Biden’s name is inscribed there as a sort of nod to a moderate past, it is the likes of Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who are really on the ballot this November.

Time and again, Biden, the supposed moderate, has proved willing to embrace the radical leftists who now control his party. His electoral platform is really a Biden-Sanders Unity platform. It reflects the hard left’s top policy priorities, including government-controlled health care, the Green New Deal and a climate agenda that would kill millions of American jobs and dull America’s economic and energy edge.

Two Killed During Riots In Wisconsin As Democrat Governor Refuses Federal Assistance

Despite the governor's declaration, rioters continued Tuesday night to burn down the Midwestern state’s modestly sized cities and attack local residents, their homes, and businesses.

MADISON — It took Gov. Tony Evers two days to wake up and proclaim a “State of Emergency” exists in Wisconsin. Tuesday, after he issued the declaration, police say three people were shot and two killed during ongoing rioting in Wisconsin streets.

In his emergency declaration, the Democrat invoked the name of Minnesotan George Floyd and plugged a legislative special session to pass bills on “equity and justice.” While desperately clinging to the notion that the Black Lives Matter protests that have swept through Wisconsin and the nation are “mostly peaceful,” even Evers smelled the smoke from Kenosha and Madison.

Despite his declaration, rioters continued Tuesday night to burn down the Midwestern state’s modestly sized cities and attack local residents, their homes, and businesses.

8 Quick Takeaways From The Second Night Of The Republican National Convention

It's not just that the Republican convention is going well, but that the Democratic counter-programming of riots and mobs couldn't be worse for Democrats.

To the consternation of their critics in the media, Republicans continued to have a successful convention. Here are a few takeaways from their second night (first night takeaways here).

1. Message: Redemption And Opportunity

Early on in the second night of the Republican convention, the story of Jon Ponder was featured. Following his incarceration for bank robbery, Ponder founded “Hope For Prisoners,” a program that helps the incarcerated reenter the workforce, their families, and society in general.
