George Soros Explores The Global Political Landscape

The global political landscape is the preserve of politicians and a few wealthy political donors who have taken it upon themselves to help engage in the political process. One area of concern for many people who believe the democratic process should be protected at all times is how much influence major political donors have at any time, which has led to the establishment of PAC’s such as the “End Citizens United” group that has developed a growing grassroots following; George Soros is often cited as a major political donor who wields a large amount of influence on the U.S. Democratic Party and a range of global groups looking to highlight the problems of human rights abuses and democratic causes across the planet. Unknown to many is the fact George Soros is a supporter of the “End Citizens United” PAC after being left with the feeling the amount of influence that could be bought through politics was “odious”. Read this story about George at politico.com

Politico reports the power George Soros gained through politics allowed him to pledge more than $27 million to the U.S. Presidential campaign of Senator John Kerry in 2004, the main reason given for the support provided for Kerry was the opposition to the invasion of Iraq ordered by incumbent President George W. Bush. Initially, Soros stated the 2004 election campaign was an exception and would rarely be repeated by him as he hoped the rise of right wing extremism had been extinguished with the election of the first African American President in Barrack Obama. In 2015 and 2016, George Soros rose again as a political donor in his bid to make sure the people of the U.S. were protected from what has been described as the “alt right”, which Soros believes had already played a key role in the “Brexit” decision in the U.K. and the misinformation provided about the refugee issue facing the European Union. Know more on CNBC about George Soros.

The donations made by George Soros have always been of a high level as he is estimated to have given some $13 billion to his own charitable network, the Open Society Foundations. During the 2016 election cycle in the U.S., George Soros provided more than $25 million to the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the many different groups dedicated to helping her become the first female U.S. President. Soros was not limited in his political giving to simply backing Clinton, but instead found himself supporting Democrat and liberal candidates standing for election to state and local level positions of office within the U.S. criminal justice system; criminal justice has been a major concern for George Soros for a number of years as he feels a lack of minority candidates for local roles has led to a system favoring rich white males over all other genders, races, and religions.

Eva Moskowitz and her Success Academy can provide pre-K education without city interference

Eva Moskowitz and her charter network Success Academy won an appeals court case this week that gave them the right to continue providing pre-K education without the interference of New York City authorities.

 

Why is this so important, and a huge victory for Eva Moskowitz and her values when it comes to education?

 

As one Success Academy parent explains on a new Academy blog post, the charter network’s ability to run a pre-K program free of interference from the Department of Education’s red tape means New York children will be able to continue to get a pre-K education that is far better than anything the city itself offers.

 

She saw how much this helped when one of her children was in a good pre-K program and one was not. The first child always did better than the second one through the first three years of his elementary school education.

 

When the Department of Education tried to get Success Academy to sign their contracts and agree to their rules, however, the Academy and Eva Moskowitz had no other choice but to shut down their pre-K program.

 

Now they can start it back up again without New York being involved at all, and go back to offering a superb pre-K education to the child of any parents that want it.

 

When you look at the number of parents applying for a place for their children, that seems to be a huge percentage of the city.

 

That is because children who get into good pre-K programs will often find themselves ahead of their peers when they get to elementary school. Those that do not will often be behind much of the class and will remain that way for several years.

 

Eva Moskowitz saw this first-hand when she founded Success Academy, and saw the difference in children coming from pre-K programs. She vowed to give Success Academy children the same advantage.

 

Now, with this New York state appeals court ruling, Eva Moskowitz is free to create her pre-K programs any way she wants, and that can only benefit the children that end up in them.
