CA Tax Dollars Used to Teach LA Students to Sell Obamacare to Mom, Dad…Whomever!

Posted by Tina

With great excitement, the Los Angeles Unified School District has designed a nearly $1 million program to train teenagers to promote the glories of ObamaCare to parents, relatives and friends at home.

The state’s health insurance exchange, Covered California, is handing $990,000 to LA schools, along with federal grants totaling 36-million more U.S. taxpayer dollars to districts around the most populous state.

The goal is to train millions of student messengers statewide to sell the idea of government-subsidized health insurance to parents and relatives at home and to get more people enrolled in ObamaCare.

Taxpayer-paid public school staff will also be used to phone students’ homes urging enrollment under Obama’s Affordable Care Act. And they will be used to consume precious class instructional time to teach the students all about the healthcare program that the Democrat Congress did not read before passing in 2010.

Taxpayers, parents, students and teachers are screwed again by the shenanigans of an out of control, progressive, power hungry, greedy…thugocracy in control of the Democrat Party.

    “Student Messengers” what happens then? do they report their parents who do not comply? Sounds historically familiar, scary.

    If I was a parent I’d be pissed and at the next school board meeting. With student’s reading a math scores in the basement they do not need to be spending school time learning how to market ObamaCare to their parents. The witness at the Martin/Zimmerman trial yesterday said she couldn’t read cursive and she’ll be a senior this year.

    We can all count on the teachers going after some of this grant money come next negotiations for having the task added, which is outside of their current contract scope.

    Well at least there’s this hopeful news:

    The Commonwealth Foundation, where I am a senior policy analyst, is a free-market think tank based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania that has been helping teachers like Brough and Cress (teachers seeking to leave the union) through Free to Teach, a project designed to empower public educators.

    Our organized (organization) joined National Employee Freedom Week campaign because we know the issue of worker freedom needs national attention.

    According to a poll conducted by the campaign’s organizers, fully one-third of union households across America want to opt out of union membership.

    In our state, the number of union households who would opt out clocked in at 27.6 percent, while states like Illinois and Michigan saw 30 percent and 28 percent, respectively.

    State by state, National Employee Freedom Week will tell union members of their options, whether that is remaining a member, resigning, or leaving and becoming a religious or other conscientious objector.

    We know union members are hungry for such information.

    In Nevada’s Clark County School District—one of the country’s largest—a similar campaign saw an astonishing 400 teachers resign from their local union last summer.

    I know if these teachers are wanting to opt out of the union they have seen through the scam that is robbing them of dignity and effectiveness in their chosen profession. There are so many good, creative, dedicated teachers who just don’t need the political crap and the big bureaucracy that sits atop them and collects too many of the education dollars that should be used in their classrooms!

    Slowly, slowly turns the earth…

    Also I think some good old fashioned competition is providing the great ones with incentive to seek a better path!

    More than 2 million U.S. students in grades K-12 were home-schooled in 2010, accounting for nearly 4 percent of all school-aged children, according to the National Home Education Research Institute. Studies suggest that those who go on to college will outperform their peers.

    Students coming from a home school graduated college at a higher rate than their peers­—66.7 percent compared to 57.5 percent—and earned higher grade point averages along the way, according to a study that compared students at one doctoral university from 2004-2009.

    They’re also better socialized than most high school students, says Joe Kelly, an author and parenting expert who home-schooled his twin daughters.

    In terms of this post the community organizers idea of education is deplorable. Apparently that healthy school lunch program is a big bust…hungry kids, thousands of dollars wasted on food the kids throw away. We’ve been through this exercise before; it didn’t work that time either.
