(Read More)


The Truth in Education Act

 

1. In order to safeguard parents and students, teachers and school administration personnel will be subject to progressive disciplinary action, up to and including discharge, for offering false information related to:

·      Course titles and content

·      Deliberate misrepresentation and mischaracterization of classes

·      Intentional education of unrelated curriculum through ideological beliefs

 

2. Public schools and universities will be required to establish procedures and protocols (including progressive disciplinary measures and procedures, complaint resolution, training, and compliance reporting) for truthful standards of course representation and neutral delivery. Failure to establish the procedures and protocols could result in the forfeiture of federal and state funding.         

 

3. Parents and students have a “Right to Know” the vantage point and origin of educational instruction, before they sign up for classes. Therefore, public school teachers, university professors, and school administrators will be required to sign a pledge to take neutral ideological positions in their respective roles. Educational facilities will be required to train those who encounter students in appropriate styles of communication that allow the students to ponder the world while having their personal beliefs respected. Educators found to be in violation of this Act will be subject to progressive disciplinary action. If they proceed to indoctrinate students they will be dismissed. Administrators found to be either encouraging classroom indoctrination or protecting teachers who are attempting to indoctrinate students will also be dismissed. 

 

4. When reporting classroom incidents, students, teachers, school administrators, and others involved in the classroom setting will be protected by the Whistle-Blower Protection Act of 1989. Government employees are prohibited from taking retaliatory action due to a reporting disclosure.  

 

5. Nothing in this Act is designed to prevent an instructor from honestly answering a student’s direct question. That right has always been protected.

 

The United States of America needs to pass legislation holding our public schools and universities accountable for “truth-filled” identification of course content. I believe that we have one of the largest cases of “consumer fraud” going on in the history of the United States of America. We are allowing our public university professors the ability to misrepresent the underlying educational theme (intent) through improper naming conventions (course titles) and misrepresentation in the syllabi of course content.
