Thank you, Jakell Sullivan. Not all news is of equal value and importance. This is hugely valuable and important.

We must wake up and shake off the chains of federally directed education reform because it literally robs us, in a way that may not be reversible, of the power to teach our children according to the dictates of our own conscience.

With education and healthcare along with the other federally regulated programa brings government control over our lives to about 50%. This is scary socialism which has already been proven to be a failure. Why can't we learn from history and other countries' experiences?

My wife teaches elementary school. She says that children coming into the school are increasingly misbehaving. Lack of good behavior skills interferes with the learning process. Good behavior skills are themselves learned, and are necessary to learn other things. Frankly, a lot of society encourages poor behavior. Permissiveness, wrong-headed notions of independence or whatever excuse. Broken families have a hard time rearing children.Parents, if you want your child to succeed, you need to give him/her time and guidance in dealing with school and life in general.
