I spent a considerable amount of time on the phone today with Sen. Huffines Education Policy director, Lauren who is at the Austin office (very nice lady)

***ALERT***

THERE WILL BE TESTING for all those that apply and get the state funding through Education Savings Accounts (ESA) in this proposed "School Choice" legislation.

Now with that said a student has to be in the public school system for an un-determined amount of time to qualify for the funding. (There was original discussion that this would be 100 days and it is not set in stone as of yet).

Now I want you to wrap your head around this home schoolers. Texas has been the best State in the US to homeschool due to our freedom from state mandates and testing. If this "School Choice" bill passes those who choose to exit the public school system to homeschool and buy into the money carrot of (ESA's) are unfortunately NOT aware of the freedom we have been blessed with.

Unfortunately, I feel many will be duped into taking the $$ keeping their child in the system. With this comes control, state mandates, testing and data collection on TEXAS' future homeschool community.

Please do not buy into the "MANTRA" that this $$ is going to parents to "EMPOWER" them to be involved in their child's education.A parent that wants to be involved in their child's education WILL BE!!

With that said I am most upset that the Texas Home School Coalition is throwing future Texas Homeschoolers under the bus.

ALERT ALERT

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
