• School Board Questions

    This is a picture of some school board members while citizens were speaking at a meeting.  Perhaps they should be called the school “bored” members!  Since school boards often have elections in the Spring, this is a good time to ask questions.  

    A friend of mine sent me a message asking me if our school had litter boxes.  I laughed and told her I hadn’t heard of that, but I figured if my school used barn cats to control rodents, it’s not the worst problem. She responded by saying she was referring to this bizarre possibility a school could allow their students to pretend they are cats!  

    Although that was not confirmed, many schools are pushing other kinds of perversion and keeping secrets from their parents.  We know in some school districts children take hormones that could cause serious health problems and parents are left out of the loop.  Transgender delusions are contagious. If one child gets attention from claiming to be a transgender, it emboldens others to try it for fun.  

    In a misguided  and morally bankrupt environment, nothing should surprise us.  Godlessness has consequences.  Where will this unhealthy behavior take us?  Certainly not to producing upstanding citizens who fear God and keep His commandments. 

    Years ago when schools discussed grooming, we thought it meant brushing teeth and combing hair.  Now it means something very wicked and evil.  Anyone, with or without children, has a right to care and get involved.

    Once children’s minds are molested by being forced to think about deviant actions, it’s hard for them to concentrate on reading, writing and arithmetic!  If you want to make your voice heard, now is the time.

    Today, we talk with Kathy Guerra, a licensed Counselor running for the Parkway School Board.

    It seems like the only time we get some accountability is when the school board members are up for election. It’s easy to want to give up, but being an American citizen demands that we care enough to vote.

    The duty to vote and promote good people as candidates is a moral duty and is part of being a Christian citizen. Our voice, our hands and our mouths are part of being salt and light. No matter how discouraged you get with the political climate, do not shirk your duty and do not make excuses.

  • How to Run a School District

    This photo was snapped at a campaign sign prep party we had two years ago.   In the photo is Cindy Redburn, candidate for State Representative in South County.  It takes a lot of great friends to have a great campaign!

    I can remember many times through the course of eight years when we debated bills and I stood at my microphone asking the members if we are a state legislature or a school board. It always puzzled me when we would pass laws pertaining to how to run a school district. Perhaps I am sensitized to this from having served nearly nine years in municipal government. I vividly remember how offended we were over the threat of the state or national government putting mandates on our city.

    In the case of Amendment 3, which you will see on the ballot in November, this amendment was not put on the ballot by our state legislators. It was put on by a petition initiative.

  • Common Core

    Graduations are the visible summary of our academic accomplishments.

    Here is the true common core:  We want our children to be successful.  How we accomplish that is up for debate.  What kind of students will we turn out with the current state of our educational system?  Some in Washington DC think their plan for “cookie cutter children” will work.  Those who can see through their plans know this is little more than another scheme to redistribute our hard earned taxpayer dollars and will result in a population that is devoid of personal uniqueness and indoctrinated into governmental dependence.

  • Reading – Writing – Arithmetic?

    Character means more than party affiliation

    kidsinclass1b3643All this time we thought our education tax dollars were intended for teaching “the three Rs”—reading ‘riting and ‘rithmetic.  If the school boards would focus on the purpose for their creation, we would save ourselves a great deal of wasted time, emotional turmoil and tax dollars.

    California provided the nation with a lesson on how far a state can go off the mission of academics with a bill passed last year.   This new law is now forcing their school children to be indoctrinated in “politically correct” distractions pertaining to deviant lifestyles.  Sadly, this is way off target and will prove to be a greater distraction to learning the basic essentials.  California may find they have created more problems than they solved.
