The 5 Most Conservative Colleges in the USA

As Election Day 2012 gets closer and closer, the Republican Party still has not settled down and chosen a candidate. It seems that the Conservative Party is having problems making a decision between Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, the two front-runners after recent primaries.

Just in case you have been hiding under a rock for the past few weeks and haven’t heard anything he has said, Santorum is the more-Conservative candidate and has been quoted as calling public universities “indoctrination mills” for liberal ideals.

So, if you agree with Santorum and would like to attend a school that is not “liberal” (let’s face it: most colleges are more liberal than conservative), here is a list of the Top 5 Conservative Schools in the USA. The schools were determined to be Conservative based on religious affiliations, policies concerning sex before marriage, political tendencies, and other similar factors.

Michele Bachmann Delivers Caucus-Day Speech to Iowa High School Students

Bachmann Official Headshot Michele Bachmann has been known for doing some strange things. However, one thing she just did is quite different from her usual antics…and from what the other candidates are doing in order to promote themselves. She delivered her first live caucus-day speech to a group of 800 students at West Des Moines’ Valley High School in Iowa.

Instead of talking about her usual subjects – including her dream of repealing the health care reform law – Bachmann discussed the important role that students can have in the election process and ways they can become leaders and innovators in the future.

“What the next generation needs is innovation,” Bachmann said. “They need opportunities.”

Of course, Bachmann did have to promote herself as a presidential candidate a little bit, but I think she did so in a good way. She promoted her tax plan and told students that it would make it easier to help them find jobs in the future by lowering the cost of conducting business in the USA. She also talked about her own youth, growing up the daughter of a single mother in Iowa. This would help students relate to her and was a good move on her part, in my opinion.

4 Common Roommate Conflicts and How to Resolve Them

If you haven’t had your first conflict with your roommate yet, you eventually will. It’s only normal for arguments to arise while sharing such a tiny space. Resolving conflict is all about being reasonable and coming to a mutual agreement.

Don’t avoid the big elephant in the room. Talk about your issues openly while still respecting the other person.

Here are four common roommate conflicts and ways to resolve them:

The neat-vs.-messy conflict: We all know that neat-freaks and slobs don’t make the perfect roommate match, but that doesn’t mean it can’t work out. Neat freaks tend to have a handful of pet peeves that irritate them to no end, but they can generally overlook the rest. If you’re the slob in this roommate relationship, find out what those pet peeves are, and try to avoid them. If you’re the neat-freak, understand that he or she lives there too, and your roommate wants to make their dorm feel like home, not Grandma’s house.

Congress Makes Temporary Budget Cuts to Education Programs

Fears loom over educators’ heads this week as the possibility of permanent budget cuts to several education programs comes closer to a reality. Over a dozen of high-profile education programs were cut from a stopgap spending measure after President Obama signed a two-week funding bill on March 2.

The bill, which extends to March 18, plans to keep the government operating while Republicans and Democrats try to come to an agreement in spending for the rest of the fiscal year.

Programs, like Teach for America, Even Start and Striving Readers, took heavy blows to their funding after Republicans insisted on cutting the Department of Education’s budget by nearly $750 million. The department’s most current arbitrary budget sits at $46.8 billion.

Republicans Determined to Stop Food Stamp Abuse by Michigan Students

Michigan Republicans contend that the majority of Michigan college students are abusing the Bridge Card system, a food stamp program. Up to 18,000 students received the aid last year, and house Republicans, alongside the Department of Human Services, will cut students off from Bridge Card, starting in April.

“We’re ready to extend a helping hand to any citizen who is truly in need – including college students who care for young children and are taking the right steps toward becoming self-sufficient,”  DHS Director Maura Corrigan said in a statement. “But those who don’t meet federal guidelines won’t be able to take advantage of what is meant to be a temporary safety net program.”

What a Republican Congress Means for Education

Written by Jason Knapfel

With the midterm elections come and gone, the public has spoken strongly. Whether the elections’ outcome was a definitive vote against the Obama Administration or just a general “vote the bums out” statement with people still feeling uneasy about the economy is up for debate. Let’s just deal with the facts as we know them. The House of Representatives swung strongly towards the Republicans, and the Senate, while still under Democratic control, saw gains on the Republican side of the aisle as well.

What does this mean for the state of education? Well, a more conservative congress means a little more sway for the Republican platform on education policy. Let’s take a look at some of the party’s stances:

“We believe in the power of school choice, that giving parents the ability to send their children to better schools – not keep them trapped in failing schools.” – GOP.com Read the rest of this entry »
