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 […]

Thanks to Lefty, Dave Lefkowith, John White’s data scam is starting to take on a clearer shape. I just got another document from good ole Lefty from another new vendor called Cambium Education and Sopris Learning.

Due to some personal issues, some of which involved a nasty run-in with an even nastier stomach virus, I have been out of commission for the last few weeks. Meanwhile a number of very exciting changes […]

I’ve been trying to explain to people since last March that the vouchers and charter schools are funded in a way designed to destroy public education and public education funding.
