Government Information Documents Replace Traditional Curriculum as Feds Seize More Control of Schools

In schools across the country, traditional literature is being replaced with government informational texts.

It is the result of the Common Core standards transition from teaching literature to focusing on government provided informational documents. “English teachers across the country are trying to figure out which poetry, short stories and novels might have to be sacrificed to make room for nonfiction,” The Washington Post reported.

This is not sitting well with some teachers. Jamie Highfill, an eighth-grade English teacher in Fayetteville, Arkansas, said that she has had to ditch “some short stories and a favorite unit on the legends of King Arthur to make room for essays by Malcolm Gladwell and a chapter from ‘The Tipping Point.’ Highfill goes on to explain that with the informational texts, the human connection prominent in literature, isn’t present.  She expressed dismay over the fact that her students are bored and shutting down. “I’m seeing more behavior problems in my classroom than I’ve ever seen.”

Christian Youths Standing Up For Jesus In Public Schools

Today's Christian families face many challenges in this world today. This country once believed in the motto: 'In God We Trust.' Our forefathers believed in this. The Constitution was based on scriptures taken out of the Bible. But, we now live in times where Christians are becoming less and less accepted. We are often placed in situations where we are compelled to stand up for our religious beliefs.

Imagine then what it is like for the Christian youth, to attend a public school. Many Christian young people are ridiculed by their peers. They are told they cannot pray in school. They cannot carry a bible. And they no longer are priviledged to have a 'moment of silence' in which they can meditate, pray, and reflect on how God is good to them. Day in and day out they are laughed at, scoffed at, frowned upon, and even rejected by their peers.This makes it difficult for the Cristian youth to stand up for his or her beliefs. But, it has to be done.

We live in a day and age where issues like abortion and homosexuality are becoming more and more widely accepted. This past week, just like last year, my teenage daughter found out what it is like firsthand, to be put down, frowned upon, and even rejected by her peers. She is experiencing this because she does not support the National Day of Silence.

Muslim Complaint Ends Pledge in Idaho School

by Rev. Austin Miles--Traveling Cross-Country

(Boise Idaho 12/27/10) When one thinks of the State of Idaho, visions of tradition, patriotism, apple pie and picket fences refreshingly comes to mind. Oops--also potatoes. However those days seem to have screeched to an abrupt stop, ending the last vestige of the America we once knew and loved. As kids return to school after Christmas break, one school will have a zero-tolerance Pledge policy.

A lone female Muslim who is a student at Vallivue Academy in Caldwell, Idaho, complained [that] saying the Pledge of Allegience before classes was offensive to her Islamic faith and demanded that the recitation of it be stopped. The school--an American school--in America, readily complied and the national pledge was axed due to the demand of one Muslim girl.

At that same school, we were told, a young man, who our source would not identify for his protection, was temporarily expelled and sent home because he made a comment critical of the government and Obama during a social studies class discussion. If this is true then something must be done.

So here is a public school class discussion where only one point of view is allowed, and if any student has another viewpoint or dares to speak against Marxism, Communism, Islam and Obama, he is kicked out of the school!  And it has been strongly implied that if he does not repent and says anything else critical of our government and Obama, he will not be allowed to graduate.

School sends parents permission slips for reciting the Pledge of Allegiance

From the "yes, really" category, we have the recent decision by a public school principal in Brookline, Massachusetts to send parents a form asking them to indicate whether or not their child should participate in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, (which teachers are required to lead, according to state law).

The form tells parents to check either: "Yes, my child will participate in the weekly Pledge of Allegiance", or "No, my child will not participate in the weekly Pledge of Allegiance."  The letter goes on to urge parents to "have a conversation as a family to help your children understand why I will be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and to support them in feeling comfortable and confident in the decision on whether or not to participate."

So what does this tell us?

In the case of this particular PUBLIC, tax-dollar supported school, it indicates that they are only just now getting around to leading children in the Pledge...despite the fact that it's a state law.  And this principal is doing so in an almost apologetic manner...only once a week...and sending parents a permission slip, letting them know that they can avoid having their child's delicate conscience injured.

Then there's this...

MilesTones-TombStones-Perplexing Porn Puzzle-Airport Strip Searches-Obama's 2012 Plan--More

So what do good church people do with a winning lottery ticket purchased at a [Detroit] Porn Shop worth $129.million? What anyone with a sense of propriety would do since a Christian can't even give the appearance of evil--have someone else pick up the winnings for you. Now hold on there....thou shalt not judge--you know that! Besides, according to news reports, they plan to donate some of the winnings to the church.. the High Court just announced it is considering banning Christian Foster Parents but same-sex "gay" couples are still OK so breath easier...more Blame Duck sessions in The Capitol about to begin...and recent headlines declare: "Catholic Church Needs Exorcists," a ritual that should be in great demand in...ahh never mind!

Sixth Grader's Field Trip to Mosque to Bow Down to Allah!--Two Incredible Videos

Americans for Peace and Tolerance released a video showing 6th graders from Wellesley, MA as they rise from prostrating themselves alongside Muslim men in a prayer to Allah while on a public school field trip to the largest mosque in the Northeast. Teachers did not intervene. Parents had not been told. And where was the ACLU?  Not a peep from them. It is only Christianity that they fear and work to make illegal.  You will see a video of this outrage along with another video of my interview on this for the national radio program, Issues in Education.

Black Thursday in America

Thursday November 5, 2009 will stand out as Black Thursday in America. All are aware of the massacre at Ft. Hood, Texas, committed by a trusted "moderate" Muslim. Much more happened on that day. Let's begin with happenings in the East Bay of California and the violence at East Bay Public Schools;

Last Thursday is a day that should never have happened. Ft. Hood stands out. However, violence was taking place in East Bay schools. At Edna Hill grammar school in Brentwood, two 7th graders punched a pregnant teacher who had tried to break up a dispute between them. Instead they turned on the teacher and beat her. This has not been reported by the liberal news media. Not a line, even though the teacher was one month away from giving birth to her child. We do not know her condition or the condition of her unborn baby.

As for the 7th graders, they are a direct product of our government run public school system, where students are taught that there are no absolutes...no right or wrong..whatever is right for you is right. They are falsely taught the Darwin deception that we all evolved from apes, chimpanzees and lower creatures, meaning that their lives were an accident in time and that there is no meanting to their lives, so what's the use? Do what you want and take what you want. There are no rules.
