Some Factual Reasons to Oppose Common Core

April 14, 2014

6

My posts have been suffering from all the coordinating I’m doing behind the scenes but that does not mean I am uninvolved or not producing support for folks involved in our numerous education battles.  I’m actually sitting in a doctor’s office answering emails and I thought you all might find this one useful. I did […]

Bio of a Crawfish – Part I

April 10, 2014

13

A wise man once asked me (like a few hours ago) what is my story and why am I running for an elective position on BESE. To paraphrase his point, it’s one thing to criticize someone else (especially an easy target like Chas Roemer) but quite another to be worthy of support in your own […]

Jason France, a.k.a “The Crazy Crawfish”, formally announces bid to seek Chas Roemer’s district 6 seat on BESE

As I watched events at the capital unfolding over the last month I knew it would come to this. Our “elected” officials that are supposed to look after our interests have tuned us out and sold us out. Hundreds of you made the trek to the Capital last week and experienced the three ring circus […]

Education Reform: Building Houses of Sand in Swamps

March 31, 2014

One of first sermons I heard when I was younger that really “sunk in”, came from the book of Matthew. The Sermon was based on Matthew 7:26 from a section known as the House on the Rock. 26“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish […]

Louisiana’s Privacy Legislation and Testimony – Setting the Record Straight

March 25, 2014

3

On March 19th the Louisiana House and Senate Education Committee’s both heard testimony at the same time on the same types of legislation. This legislation was about student privacy. Holding meetings on the same subject at the same time required folks to split up their resources. Since most of us do not have ready doppelgangers, […]

My Review of Proposed Privacy Legislation for Louisiana

My apologies for not getting to this topic (and many others I’ve neglected) sooner. I may have finally bitten off more than I can effectively chew in things I’ve agreed to do. I have the best of intentions, I promise you, but sometimes my eagerness to help everyone runs smack into the limiting reality of […]

East Baton Rouge Parish Teachers are under siege and need our help

March 9, 2014

68

For the past month I’ve been interviewing and receiving testimonials from East Baton Rouge Teachers in most of the area’s non-magnet high schools. This investigation started as a conversation with a teacher (who had recently become a follower.) This teacher explained no one speaks for them, no one sees their stories.  They relayed teachers in EBR […]

LET’S HELP OUT OUR CONSERVATIVE FRIENDS AND STORM THE CPAC! OBVIOUSLY WE WANT TO ADD OUR OWN LITTLE SPIN…. (TIMES ARE IN EASTERN STANDARD SO ONE HOUR EARLIER FOR US CENTRAL TIME FOLKS) This ain’t a right or left thing, it’s a right and wrong thing. I’m writing you to ask you to join us […]

A rallying cry story and call to action for the Common Core destroyers among us

February 23, 2014

8

Parents are getting creative about how they are showing their displeasure towards the Common Core, and the would-be supporters of it. Those of us who oppose the Core realize these corporation and organizations have very little grasp of what is contained in the Core. They are supporting the “idea” of the Core. I can actually […]
