President Barack Obama was set to announce an executive order aimed at improving the performance of African-American students as he addresses the Urban League Wednesday night.
The executive order establishes an interagency initiative aimed at identifying promising programs to improve African-American students’ performance and developing a national network of people and groups to share these ideas and put them into practice. The program, to be housed in the Education Department, is dubbed the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans.
The order also sets up a commission to advise the initiative and a federal interagency working group to coordinate federal efforts from early childhood education through college and adult schooling.
A new initiative means more federal dollars and likely more government bureaucrats that are going to be impossible to fire. But that is just an economic flaw of this.
What about the Constitutionality of it? Or does the Constitution even apply to leader Obama? I never realized we could siphon money for the purpose of propping up and "trying" to improve the lives of one segment of the population over another.
