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.
