Why is Teaching a Crime? California Denies Blue-Collar Workers Entry to Trade Schools

Why is Teaching a Crime? California Denies Blue-Collar Workers Entry to Trade Schools

Oh give me land, lots of land under
starry skies above Now don’t fence me in Let me ride through the wide open
country that I love Don’t fence me in Let me be by myself in the evening breeze Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees Send me off forever, but I ask you
please Don’t fence me in. You could read about horseshoeing, and study horse shoeing at a university setting for twenty years, and not be able to shoe a horse. You’ve just got to physically get underneath the horse, manipulate the feet, play with the tools, so it’s strictly all hands on. For a thousand years, its just been traditionally handed down, you just learn from grandpa. You don’t learn in a formal classroom, or a formal school. Schools are a relatively new invention for horse shoeing. The name of my business is Pacific Coast Horseshoeing School, and we train people to be professional farriers. A farrier is someone that trims and shoes horses feet. The state of California, requires that
every student that I accept in my program, either possess a high school diploma, a GED, or they pass a written exam that’s been approved by the U.S. Department of Education. You don’t have to know algebra to be
able to shoe a horse. You don’t have to be able to read a novel, to be able to shoe a horse. You don’t have to be able to write a novel to shoe a horse. You don’t have to possess any kind of degree in mathematics, or in English in order to
shoe a horse. Horses don’t speak English, horses don’t do math… We’re good. Before this law was enacted, I had many many many kids, from all over the United States
that would come through the program that did exceptionally well and they’re
still shoeing horses today, making a living. They had no high school diploma, no GED, they didn’t take a written exam. A lot of these young folks that are coming to the school they’re looking to better their lives because they have really low end jobs and in order to support themselves and their families, their seven days a week, they’re working full-time and they’re hardly making it. Esteban is a young man that has been
doing some helping, he has to support his family and so he has all these little odd jobs that he has to do, but he doesn’t have a high school diploma. Government is his biggest obstacle to success, and not because the government is protecting him, but they just arbitrarily decided that all schools are not allowed to take these kids unless they meet their requirements regardless of what the training is. I can’t believe that the state of California makes a decision that somebody is not worthy of investing in their own selves. They pick winners and losers, based on an arbitrary system of whose finished high school, and if you haven’t finished high school you’re not even allowed to invest in yourself, and that’s insane.

  1. Tropical company: that's because it is, there is nothing you have, the government doesn't own or tax. You are taxed from the cradle to the grave.

  2. We left California 4 Months 12 days ago and glad we did. This is another example of California going over the deep edge. My wife taught in the California college system and she wasn't allowed to correct student's grammar (and other things) because it wasn't part of her syllabus/course – makes no sense (non-sense).

  3. God bless you we're trying to do something to help someone else why is the government against that but just give you money we can lay around and watch TV and play around on his government phone what happened to America

  4. Such BS.. Thomas Edison finished grade 3. Had these lawmakers been around then we may not have electric lights, power plants, motion pictures, sound recordings all things that were deemed not feasible by thousands of professors of the day.

  5. This topic would have NEVER crossed my mind that California, of all the states would enact a ridiculous law like this. Wow this is criminal to me! You both will win your cases!!

  6. If you think it’s bad now you better hope we never get a liberal president and a congress dominated with democrats. We’ll all be sunk and this country wii be done!

  7. Elect another DNC POTUS and this is what all of America will be… ? ARE there any viable Libertarians running in 2020❕❓

  8. The educational lobbyist funded by the nations largest union, the NEA, (National Education Association), have gotten to California's liberal politicians to force participation in their fiefdoms,

  9. you say " click to learn more about this" what really happens is "click here and be re-directed to our website where you can't find anything about this"

  10. I'm kind of torn on this one at the end of the day I agree you shouldn't need to have a high school diploma or GED. But the same point why wouldn't you have a high school diploma now, with that said was the intent behind this law in California discourage people from dropping out of high school making it harder for them if they don't have a high school diploma? As grade school education in the United States is mostly free I have to seriously ask why you wouldn't have a high school diploma.

  11. California. No surprise. Besides that, they know they have Illegals that they can under pay to do a lot of the manual work.

  12. Fucking California. Several years ago I was going to go on a two week holiday, always wanted to see California. But why would I go to a state, no matter how pretty it was, just to spend my hard earned money in a place that was run by a bunch of idiots? I'm happy that I visited Arizona instead. Fuck California. It's like the politicians there are trying to out-stupid each other. They're all winning.

  13. Good grief if this is true, then 30% of the baby boomers that were born after world war II wouldn't have jobs. Big brother doesn't want you to get ahead because they want you on the Gov't tit depending on them. That way well things go sideways, your the first to go!

  14. They just want people stuck in the system slaving away in a dead end job their entire lives. They don’t want people learning useful trade skills.

  15. This is so wrong to deny these people to learn a trade.These are the same people who allow homeless people to camp out on the street, use drugs, fill the streets with trash, attack people and POOP on the sidewalk in front of children. We can't wrap our heads around the things these idiots come up with.

  16. There are people with formal educations that don't want to work and be productive, these people want to learn something. My dad never finished high school with a diploma yet served in the Marine core (at 15 yrs old mind you), learned a trade and raised a family of 6 children.

  17. All about the teacher's unions. this law also discriminates against kids with learning disabilities who are not able to finish high school.

  18. Licensing is about giving bureaucrats jobs, or justification for being employed by the government. It also protects those who are already in the business by putting a barrier to competition. It's just like when big business lobbyists WANT their business regulated. They're the ones that write the laws that the bureaucrats put into place to reduce the competition for those businesses.

  19. I bet o6f u had the California Colege of Drag Queen Childrena Storytelling they wouldn't give u one bit of grief and would inhand blame the lack of high school diploma on the white cis gender and toxic male patriarchy.

  20. An update (why doesn't IJ do this?). 28 April 2018, a Federal Judge in Sacramento dismissed the lawsuit. The IJ is taking it to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and oral arguments will be heard on Thursday, 24 October 2019, just days from now. I hope that the court supports this individual. I hope President Trump say nothing about liking horses or farriers. If he does, the 9th will most definitely dismiss the suit. That is just how they are.

  21.

  22. Leftists masquerading as educators are trying to maintain control over every aspect of human development. It's not about education, it's about control.

  23. ​? FALSE FLAG OP … COMMUNIST CALIFORNIA creating problems to squeeze more money from tax payers creating the REFINERY FIRE ? ANNIVERSARY OF CAMP FIRE FALSE FLAG OP ?stop communist california ? SEND IN the military?. look up "communist california" video here on YTube… share it with everyone you know.

  24. The american is a dictator country america make north corea look like st,kitts island DAM THE AMERICAN GOVERMENT IS CUMINEST GOVERMENT

  25. I was confused about how this could happen. Then Bob mentioned the one word that explained it all. "California". That explains everything. You folks voted not for more government but for much more government. Well you got it with bells on. A leftist paradise for some. for the rest of us, no not really.

  26. Correct me if I'm wrong. You dont need any formal education, of any kind, to learn to show a horse. So what does this genius do, open a school to teach people to shoe horses. I wonder if showing horses doesn't pay enough and so he has to get by on tuition teaching people a worthless skill.

  27. Its only denied so the government can program the people to their preferred desires.
    Without the programming the people would just think for themselves.

  28. It's because trade schools don't teach socialism this is why California is so butthurt. They can't control the individual.

  29. Its calaforna. You really think Democrats would not be opposed stopping someone from teaching people a trade so they don't have to relay on them to live?

  30. Well, well look at this people now the stupid Democrats that are telling those who are wanting to do better in life are now they can't cause they don't want them to get further in life and take care of their families. It's those who voted for them into office and boards faults.

  31. Just because you have a degree, it doesn't mean you will be successful. Many successful people have dropped out of university and worked hard to become successful. Everyone has the right to strive and work to make their lives a little better for themselves.

  32. They want to force kids to finish their political indoctrination programs before they can support their families. If they don't they will be reliant on the government for survival. Same ole bully tactics….

  33. California: How dare you try to improve yourself without the right papers, you POOR! We're liberals here, and we get triggered if you haven't graduated high school!

    What's that you say? He doesn't need identity papers, just school papers, you rrrrracist!!!

  34. If the kid didn't graduate or get a GED, that is a breach of contract between the State of California and those who pay school taxes. The kid should sure the California education system for failure to perform the contract.

  35. Same here in Florida, can't go to trade school without high school equivalent… Wanted to learn how to weld, so I had to teach myself…

  36. Socialist want you dependent on the 'system', not on yourself. Sick, sick world we have here in America, when you can't even go to a trade school.

  37. God knows it's better to have youngsters WORKING if there is no alternative.

    California's high schools are so bad they give us more high school dropouts than all the other states. Maybe the government could look in the mirror and fix THEIR shitty schools first.

  38. This is why California is a terrible place to live. Its run by garbage politicians who are actually just garbage people with garbage ideas that led to garbage and feces infested cities.

  39. This reminds me of the case some years ago, where a woman was braiding hair in her home to make ends meet, but she was arrested for doing hair without a license. They were saying that she needed a cosmetology license, even though she was wasn't using chemicals or anything. Black females often learn to braid hair when they are children and there is no reason that a license should be required to do what they already know how to do, but of course, the government wants people's money!

  40. California is in a state of profound idiocy. They wont clean their forests, they coddle illegal aliens, they encourage homeless, tented streets. They treat the citizens like they are in the way. The government is either stupid, or they know exactly what they are doing. The rest of our U.S; had better take a good deep look at California. It will spread out, or it will die in that State. Hope for the latter.

  41. Well, I think we should see if there is another side of this story. I sense that there is. I have a question:

    Is the Farrier program funded by the state?

    If it is funded by the state, then the state has an interest in doing all it can make sure that its investment will add value to the state. The state may be, quite logically, using a GED/Highschool Diploma, as a filtering system. If a kid can get a diploma/GED, then it suggests two things:

    1. That the potential student has the discipline to complete a Farrier program.
    2. That the potential student has the base intelligence to do well in the program. Math may not be required for a certain job, but a mathematically trained mind will bring improvements to ANY job.

    I hate government. I want as little of it as possible. But if a government is going to take my money and then give it to people like Bob Smith to train kids for jobs that largely support relative few horse owners in their recreational pursuits, well, I want to know how that nonsense will help the state, and whether the money will be wasted on a kid who is too lazy or too stupid to complete the program.

    If the program is not state funded, then the state is out of its cotton-pickin' mind. Otherwise, I call BS here until I can get more information.

  42. >Can't believe that the state of California would pass such a law

    Has this guy been living under a rock? California is the best in the world with bullshit laws.

  43. Bob, Good to see you! The list is too long of why My wife and I bought land outside of the State of California. Government overreach , high taxes, Building restrictions, Regulations, exorbitant Building Permit fees. Zoning Laws that only benefit the wealthy Land owners, astronomical vehicle registration fees and the highest gas taxes in the world. (should I go on?) That said, please add punitive damages that will punish them where it hurts the most..in their pocketbooks. Good luck.

  44. Politicians should be Lined Up behind the Horses arses so that the Horses can Kick them where the Sun does not shine. That is the only way for Politicians to learn to mind their own business. Even better the Politicians should be taken to Mexico dressed as a Mormon, so that the Drug Lords can do Nasty Things to them.

  45. As a First Amendment issue, is it about freedom of speech or freedom of assembly? The class assembles and listens to its instructor speak, so it could be both I suppose.

  46. Police, Judge and district attorney corruption is the norm not the exception here in California, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, New York and the other 45 states.

  47. Also with the dirt content on YouTube why's this burried so deep. I mean deep. Like I had to find this through comment recommendations.
