“First God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.” – Mark Twain

Topic: Public Education Failures

  1. Have Teachers declared war on students and their parents?
  2. Have teachers chosen to join professional sports, the media, higher education, and big corporations in a woke crusade against their own country and its traditions?
  3. Do public school teachers work not for their customers — i.e. students and parents — but for school boards, the government, politicians, and their unions?

In his 1962 book Capitalism and Freedom, Milton Friedman wrote:

If one were to seek deliberately to devise a system of recruiting and paying teachers to repel the imaginative and daring and self-confident and to attract the dull and uninspiring, he could hardly do better than to imitate the system of requiring teaching certificates and enforcing standard salary structures that has developed in the larger city and state-wide systems.

The traditional definition of socialism is “government ownership and operation of the means of production.”  Public schools are owned and operated by the government.  Our public school system fits that definition of socialism.  Socialism always fails, and public schools fail for the same reasons.

Society has no greater duty than educating each new generation. Leaving it in the hands of government is a horrible mistake.

If we can  grow K-12 Christian schools and home schooling up to 15-20% that may be enough to begin the final take down of public education. That idea would not have been contemplated by even some in my camp a few years ago but now is expressed often.

We need to abandon the myth of “reforming” our public schools and start educating people that our schools are no longer designed to produce productive and responsible citizens, but rather to produce agents of change in order to support the left’s goal of transforming America to a socialist police state.

“I’m sure Betsy Devos is a nice lady but I can’t think of anything she did which will have any lasting impact on our public schools.” – Lt. Col (Ret) Ray Moore.

Winning a school board position isn’t a cake walk. Unions have a grip on the process. Often, candidates are union members or their races are funded by union ­donations.

  • Efforts to reform their school districts have been fruitless and a waste of time, money and energy.
  • Even with the very few examples where conservative actually controlled the school board, their reforms were undermined and, as soon as they left office, they were repealed.
  • Over the last 100 years, education policy has been controlled by unelected education bureaucrats at both the state and federal levels.
  • The notion  of “locally-controlled” schools is a myth and there hasn’t really been any truly locally-controlled schools in generations.
  • There are thousands of state and federal mandates that control every aspect of education policy including  sex ed,  curriculum, academic standards, tenure, hiring, special ed, and on and on.
  • Our schools are essentially governed by thousands of leftist state and federal education bureaucrats that don’t really change regardless of what party may be in charge of the state or federal government.

By E. Ray Moore. American schools receive the highest funding in the world yet consistently rank near the bottom in mathematics, physics, and science. Despite the failings of public schools, more than 80% of evangelical Christians place their children in the public school system, exposing them to physical and moral danger on a daily basis. The Biblical instruction of our children may be the thrust that God could use to restore American society and revive the nation. A fresh obedience by the Church to its God-ordained role in education may be the catalyst for a new Great Awakening.

STEM Day is 11/8: No. 1 STEAM Franchise Launches Book Series, Stresses Importance of STEM in Schools – Interview and Review Opportunity for Media

World’s No. 1 STEAM Program Launches New STEM/STEAM Book Series 

New Challenge Island chapter book series perfect for fans of The Magic School Bus and Magic Tree House, but with a spectacular, hands-on STEM/STEAM twist!

Atlanta, GA, November 5, 2021 — With 120 franchise locations and a cumulative audience of 5 million children and thousands of schools, Challenge Island has been providing kids with award-winning STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) learning adventures through field trips, afterschool enrichment classes, summer camps, scout workshops and family nights for almost two decades. On National Stem Day (Nov. 8), the magic of the world’s No. 1 STEAM program will combine with the magic of reading to launch the first book in the Challenge Island STEAM book series.

The Bridge to Sharktooth Island: A Challenge Island STEAM Adventure (West Margin Press) is written by award-winning educator Sharon Duke Estroff M.A.T. (founder and CEO of Challenge Island and author of Can I Have a Cell Phone for Hanukkah?, Penguin Random House); and award-winning author Joel Ross (Alley and Rex, Simon & Schuster; Fog Diver, HarperCollins; Beast & Crown, HarperCollins); and illustrated by Monica de Rivas (The Grumbles, Hatchette; Hello, Future Me, Scholastic; Big Bad Wolfsville, HarperCollins).

The Bridge to Sharktooth Island artfully intertwines action-packed fantasy with real-life engineering as cautious Daniel, his brave cousin Joy and their studious new friend Kimani find themselves suddenly stranded on a mysterious island surrounded by sharks. The kids find clues hidden around the island and realize that if they want to escape, they’ll have to work together to build the strongest bridge they can to get to safety! The characters return in the back of the book, where they speak directly and intimately to the reader, sharing engineering tidbits learned during their adventure, cool shark facts from Kimani’s notebook, and fun STEAM activities kids can do at home, including building a bridge, mixing up a blue slime ocean and designing ferocious paper sharks.

Making the Challenge Island book series even more groundbreaking is the fact that readers can experience the same STEAM adventures as the characters in the story in real life, through one of Challenge Island’s 120 franchise locations. For example, on National STEM Day, Stephanie Edwards, owner of Challenge Island Gilbert, AZ, will be running a Bridge to Sharktooth Island book launch celebration and field trip for 350 6th grade students at the American Leadership Academy. Edwards worked closely with the charter school’s leadership to create an unforgettable engineering adventure complete with balloon arches in the gymnasium, a professional photographer and a copy of The Bridge to Sharktooth Island for every student.

“As an educator, an author, a mom, and the creator of the Challenge Island program and curriculum, the release of the first book in the Challenge Island book series is among the proudest moments of my entire career,” says Sharon Duke Estroff, founder and CEO of Challenge Island Global. “But more importantly, I truly believe that this is exactly what kids need in this moment in time. What better way to reignite a child’s love of learning than by turning a beloved STEAM enrichment program into a fantastical new book series? And — for the millions more children who will first come to know Challenge Island inside the pages of this book — to see that magical story come to life, not only in their imaginations, but in the real world!”

Back-to-School: Moms Go Wild

TOPIC: Back-to-School: Moms Go Wild

Over the next couple of weeks millions of children head back into the classroom for in-person learning this fall—much to the excited relief of moms everywhere. This video expresses perfectly what many moms will be feeling: a bit of freedom.

Social media hashtags for #FirstDayofSchool and #BackToSchool are already garnering millions of pictures and comments, do not let the joy of independence—both yours and your children be ruined by anxiety over the “delta variant.”

“It’s time to embrace a bit of normalcy for our kids and be excited about in-person learning and their first day of school. After all we have been through going back to school should be celebrated.” Mandy Arioto, CEO/President of Mothers of Pre-Schoolers (MOPS).

Mom’s have shouldered a lot of the burden of in-home learning through the pandemic up’s and down’s. Last summer economists may have hinted at a “SHE-session” when more than 13 million women stopped working to manage their children and families. Albeit we led what amounted to a herculean effort of the largest homeschooling initiative undertaken. Hey, does that qualify for a Guinness Book of World Records achievement? If not, it sure feels like we reached a pinnacle.

It’s time to recharge your batteries Mom—and MOPs has some tips for you.

Q & A Discussion:

  • What recommendations do you have for making back-to-school a fun family-bonding moment with children?
  • Any tips on re-using school supplies as these items have gotten more expensive this year than last time kids were in the classroom?
  • Are moms anticipating mom guilt as they send their kids back to school – or do you think it’s going to be party time for millions of moms?
  • Do you have any advice for anxious moms worrying about keeping their kid safe from Covid?
  • Why is in-classroom learning so important for children and moms?
  • MOPS annual event MomCON 2021 is happening Sept. 9-11, please share with us what is happening there for Moms.

GUEST: Mandy Arioto, President and CEO of MOPS International and is widely known for her unique takes on parenting, relationships, spiritual and cultural issues.

MOPS International: MOPS influences millions of moms through thousands of groups internationally. Mandy serves as the voice of one of the most influential parenting organizations in the U.S. and around the world. Visit the website to learn more.
