Common Core Math Assignments; Meant to Make People Stupid?

Take a look at this common core math assignment and ask yourself if it is intentionally meant to make children stupid… Mina Boyd, whose kindergartener came home with a Common Core math workbook this week, noticed her daughter’s unusual frustration regarding one lesson entitled “Count and Write 20.” “Count and tell how many pieces of fruit. Write the number,” the assignment asks. To Boyd’s surprise, the math problem only included 19 countable apples despite several surrounding problems correctly showing 20. “They ask her to count and write 20. So she counts, counts again, and again, and says ‘mom, there’s only […]

Middle School Girls in NY Forced to Ask for Lesbian Kisses as Part of ‘Anti-Bullying’ Lesson

Of course, for the left, “anti-bullying” lessons would involve bullying children-it’s too predictable.  In a NY Middle School, 13-14 year-olds were forced to ask one another for a lesbian kiss, because that somehow prevents bullying.  Christian News, via Gateway Pundit has more… A recent anti-bullying presentation at a middle school in New York that focused on homosexuality and gender identity has angered parents after their daughters have come home to tell them they were forced to ask another girl for a kiss. According to reports, the session occurred last week at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, New York, […]

School Choice Week: Video

Heritage has a great video on school choice… This is a great example of how people can get together and accomplish when they put their minds to it. Of course, this is why leftists want to shut these schools down.  They are not tightly controlled, and can actually teach children how to read and think. Here is some more.  I got to this late in the week, but the resources are always good… This week, we’ll be highlighting school choice success stories on The Foundry. Here are some of the ways students and parents are achieving success: Charter schools. Watch […]

Public, Private, and Home-Schools

I saw where some liberals took issue with my article yesterday about a sex poster on display in a Kansas middle school. I scratch my head at statements such as,  … children ought to be raised with the necessary background to fit into a diverse society if they plan on remaining in the greater American Community.  I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer so … what the hell does that mean? AND …Right Wingers appear to tend toward a little “Separatist Elitism” when they blow off about the advantages of private schooling and home schooling … Now folks I’ve said it  […]

Destroying the False Racial Narrative and Creating True Equality

This is a post that I originally wrote from October to December of 2010.  It took time to do the research properly, and I run it again every New Years Day.  It is my hope that one day, all of our citizens are treated as Americans, not as hyphenated groups to be divided by the political elites.  -Matt I can’t tell you how many times that I’ve read blogs, from both ends of the spectrum, that talk about African-Americans as if they are a monolithic voting bloc that will ALWAYS vote Democrat. We’ve all seen the videos of African Americans […]

Pro-Gay Website Admits Indoctrination Agenda: Targets Children

I know, this could well be classified under ‘Duh,” but a gay website has fully endorsed and admitted that their goal in education is to indoctrinate children.  Here are some excerpts… Warning:  Content inappropriate for children!-Matt Can We Please Just Start Admitting That We Do Actually Want To Indoctrinate Kids? In response to New York’s recently introduced marriage equality bill, the so-called National Organization for Marriage got a bunch of pictures of black people and some guy who sounds like Foghorn Leghorn to repeat the same lies about indoctrinating schoolchildren that they ran in 2009. They accuse us of exploiting […]

Obama Administration Attempting to Deport German Home School Christian Family

If you sneak across our border-in defiance of our laws,  take benefits,  flaunt out laws, and demand rights, you’ll get amnesty, and be rewarded for your crimes.  However, if you are a German homeschool family that came to the country legally and sought asylum, well, the Obama administration will deport you back to Germany, so the government there can take your kids away.  The Blaze has the details… Earlier this month, it was brought to light that a German family who immigrated to the U.S. seeking political asylum may soon be deported by the Department of Homeland Security — and […]

Hugging, Home Made Food, and Pushing Children on Swings Now Banned in Maryland School

Apparently, the plastic bubbles are on back order for the St. Mary’s County Public Schools.  There is not be no hugging, home-made food, and pushing children on swings at the Maryland school.  The Daily Caller has more… Officials with St. Mary’s County Public Schools say the new rules are necessary to provide a generally safe environment. A committee composed of parents and elementary school principals created the regulations after a handful of meetings last year. Other new rules include a ban on ad-hoc parent-teacher conferences. The distribution of birthday invitations on school grounds is also now verboten. “We’re not violating […]

6 Ways to Help Prevent School Shootings

Perhaps it is the policy advisor in me, or the fact that I get really upset thinking that my five children may not be properly protected while in school, or I all the calls to ‘do something’, have gotten to me- so here are six ways to help prevent school shootings, as suggested by a conservative teacher with a degree in public policy from a top east-coast school: Allow more guns in schools. Lost in the school shooting tragedy has been the news from the other tragedy, the shooting at the mall. There only two people were tragically murdered by an evil […]

Children Heckled for Singing “God Bless the USA”

If you recall, a certain school principal in NY, one Greta Hawkins, got into some hot water for denying children the opportunity to sing Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” at their graduation.  So, parents organized an event in a local park for the children to sing the song there.  Local leftists did not like that idea…not one bit.  The Daley Gator has more… The protest had been organized by parents at PS 90 in Coney Island. They were outraged after principal Greta Hawkins banned kindergartners from performing the song at their graduation ceremony. Staffers said the principal was worried the patriotic anthem […]

Besides President Reagan and Andrew Breitbart, one of the people that I look to for philosophical and intellectual support and inspiration is Milton Friedman. Here is a video that explains how his work is still having an impact on our country’s education system. His legacy lives on.
