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

Common Core is an educational curriculum being forced upon the states by the Obama administration, which is scheduled to be mostly implemented this year in the 46 states that have adopted it. Common Core eliminates local control over K-12…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
Why Common Core?

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.…

November 6th, 2012.
Obama vs Romney. Socialism vs Capitalism. Free stuff vs Freedom. Arrogance vs Humility. Corruption vs Competence. Bigger government vs Smaller government. Community Organizer vs Successful Businessman. Appeasement vs Strength. Lies vs Integrity.

With 14 days to go until election day, Obama has finally unveiled his NEW and IMPROVED plan for the next 4 years.
The empty chair and opened an empty binder.
It’s time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. Over the…Continue

Obama hasn’t taken a shellacking like that since the 2010 midterm elections.
It was so one sided that even liberal pundits were lamenting their loss. There was no tingle running up Chris Matthew’s leg. Bill Maher tweeted: “Obama made…Continue

I have been traveling the country for the last two years, teaching people the true history of the founding of our nation. I do this because I believe two things: one, that God has placed a call on my life and two, those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.
Recently, I was able to spend two days with a room full of high school-aged, homeschooled students. It was amazing. The first day, we went through a practical exercise to teach both the difference…Continue
