I am not a perfect person. It is easy to say that, because none of us are.
I am, however, an excellent teacher.
I would not know this from the evaluations given to me by principals and…Continue

There is a good chance that there will be passengers on your flight who boarded without any identification whatsoever.
"Daddy?," said the beautiful, ten-year-old girl to her father.
Her father, Josh Hanlan, sat in front of his computer, studying complex engineering designs on the screen. He didn't seem to hear his daughter.
Mary Hanlan knew how engrossed her father got when he was working, and smiled adoringly at his handsome face peering intently at the computer, clicking his mouse furiously,…Continue

Education is widely recognized as the most important element of success, growth for any nation. Common Core should be the last straw for angry American parents that are seeing our nation, and our children’s educations, degraded.
The thinly disguised federalization of Americas education system under…Continue

Let me explain.
Too many years ago, when I was a public school student, 2+2 equaled 4. Everybody knew it and…Continue
An investigative report conducted by Politico this week says that $1 Billion in tax payer funds will go to Christian schools in the form of vouchers. School choice advocates will call this a victory. The founders believed this practice to be destructive to both liberty and faith. The Politico article serves illustrate that point.…Continue
I've read many articles about INSANE decisions by various officials in various public schools in various states. Today I read one which, in certain respects tops them all.
It's about a high school honor student, soon to begin applying for scholarships and college admission. His school has a "Zero Tolerance" policy on weapons possession, including knives with blades longer than 3". …Continue
Education matters. All you need is a willingness to teach and someone with a willingness to learn. No money, no teaching certificate, no college degree or state license. Just you the teacher and the student.
Jessica was 16 when I first met her in 2006. She was Donna’s (my then girlfriend and now fiance) grand daughter. Jess was in the 10th grade at the time. Donna said she had trouble with math. Since I’m good with math and had helped many people over the years I was intrigued. Just…Continue

Ok, I’m guessing that most, if not all, of you had a moment of “Huh?” after reading the title.
I’m a Christian (at least I try to be) and I also am getting really tired of the Christian bashing special interest shrillness going on and being sanctioned, if not promoted, by government, industry, the education system, etc.
But we’ve been warned. (No, this is not a scripture lesson, but…
Timothy Birdnow In a recent article at American Thinker Elise Cooper argued for new programs and more school involvement to reduce bullying. As she rightly points out bullying is on the rise in modern America, and the temptation to turn to psychologists, schools and government is strong - even for conservatives. I fear the notion that bullying can be stopped through governmental programs is…Continue

Thank God people are waking up to the implementation by sneak attack of the Obama DOED called Common Core. After a review of common core its new label should be Commie Core since this is a 100% communist program. Let's remember, communist hate the family, God country and seek total moral decay to divert…

Having recently received the latest issue of Imprimis from Hillsdale College, coupled with Judson Philips recent posting “The Greatest American Failure,” I am feeling compelled to offer you a short (?) list of reasons why we are in desperate need of a complete overhaul of our educational system.…Continue
If you passed through any school system since the 1960s, you are a lot dumber than you think you are. Those of us educated in the 1940s and 50s learned the fundamentals of literacy, history, civics, mathematics, and science in ways that no system relentlessly devoted to “self-esteem” ever…Continue

Popular culture has made murder, rape, mayhem, hatred, and violence "cool"

The recent massacre at an elementary school in Connecticut (the ironically named Sandy Hook - it’s been a bad year for anything named Sandy) has, predictably, brought a chorus of calls for gun control and to double down on Progressive social reform schemes.
It appears no tragedy, no matter how horrendous, is to be allowed to “go to waste” as Rahm Emmanuel would say.…
