NEW JERSEY – A comprehensive education campaign, NEW JERSEY VOTES, to educate on the upcoming Nov. 3 General Election was launched Thursday by Governor Phil Murphy, New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way, and the State’s Division of Elections.

North Dakota’s coronavirus education campaign delayed


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — An education campaign aimed at persuading North Dakotans to wear masks and practice social distancing still has not begun more than a month after $1.8 million in federal coronavirus aid was approved for the effort.

The campaign had been set to start Monday, the same day North Dakota set a record for active COVID-19 cases statewide. Nicole Peske, a state Health Department spokeswoman, said three of the 10 private firms that submitted bids for education effort had equal proposals under the state’s scoring system, which has delayed the effort for at least another week.

“I don’t think anybody wants to move forward on this more than we do,” Peske said Tuesday. “We did have a rare three-way tie … every step of process is time consuming and there are time frames we legally have

Campaign 2021: Perryman Focuses On Education, Economics, Equity

FAIRFAX COUNTY, VA — When it comes to politics, it’s probably safe to say most people are currently focused on the 2020 election. But, some candidates are already looking ahead to November 2021, when Virginia voters decide who will be the next governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general.

While several Democrats are exploring lieutenant governor bids, three individuals have already declared their intention to seek their party’s nomination: Sean Perryman, president of the Fairfax County NAACP; Del. Hala Ayala (D-Prince William); and Paul Goldman, former chairman of the Democratic Party of Virginia

Infiltration: Communist China’s Campaign to Reshape U.S. Education

Communist China continues to exploit our free and open research institutions for its own gain. In late August, another researcher and Chinese national was charged with computer intrusion and stealing trade secrets at the University of Virginia. However, the theft of research breakthroughs that enhance China’s technological and military prowess is not the only issue that concerns Americans.

China Navy Jets Take Off from First Self-Made Aircraft Carrier for Training



The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is actively working to influence the next generation of Americans and Chinese students in America by expanding its soft power, attempting to control and threaten Chinese students, and using financial leverage over U.S. educational institutions.

For example, in mid-August, the U.S. Confucius Institute headquarters was designated by the State Department as a foreign mission due to its efforts to push CCP

Democrats campaign on killing education choice for veterans

Summer is almost over and the November election is just around the corner, which means that Americans are once again strapping themselves in for the metaphorical bumpy ride to the finish line. 

But while the focus for the next few months will largely center on the main candidates, big headlines and the litany of promises each party will make, we ought to be paying just as much attention to the acts taking shape in Washington right now, as congressional Democrats are launching yet another election-year broadside against education choice.

As a parent and an educator, it frustrates me to no end that a sizable number of politicians and bureaucrats have made it their life’s work to thoroughly control education from Washington. 

As a retired naval chief petty officer who spent 27 years teaching leadership skills to help prepare thousands of young men and women for their future, I am
