Listen to teachers explain the problems they see with Common Core along with parents upset about the effects on their children. Hear why Common Core is turning education upside down. Let's face the facts that this is a federal intrusion and when parents and teachers can no longer help a child then it is time to stop calling it education as it will lead to indoctrination among other things. Hear parents and teachers fighting for America's future and the future of those they hold dearest in their own homes. There are lessons to be learned from the past and the present. No one that loves children can sit on the sidelines and allow a system to beat up a child inside the mind and Common Core does exactly that to the point that one child psychiatrist calls it "cognitive abuse" and there is even now a mental health problem known as the "common core syndrome". The Obama administration is proving to be dangerous for this country as we have seen by the wrong actions with Benghazi-gate, Bergdahl-gate, Obamacare and now ObamaCore or Common Core (that David Axelrod proudly calls an Obama Initiative) . Time to put a halt to it and it starts with understanding--hear from those affected.

The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program is the largest school based father engagement program in the nation with nearly 4000 schools participating.
It all started with a coffee delivery for the teachers at the start of the school year not long after the Daily Grind opened. I noticed teachers working extremely hard to get the school year started. Decorating the class rooms (at their own expense) and planning…planning…planning. Attempting to make the year the most impactful that they could. What really woke me up was a teacher, with trailer in tow, hand loading cases of text books and dragging them down the hall to her class. I honestly believe that most people have no idea what a teacher goes through to “teach” our kids.
I see teachers working non stop at the Grind (even on the weekends) planning their classes in an attempt to truly help our kids. With budget cuts and teacher layoffs, why do they do what they do? We all know it’s not the paycheck. I’m convinced it’s a sincere desire to really help the kids.
What can we do to show our appreciation for our teachers? After all, a good teacher teaches….A GREAT TEACHER sparks a life long desire to seek knowledge and change the world for the better. One thing I have learned is that showing sincere appreciation for what one does causes them to excel. Truly appreciating a teacher ….makes a GREAT Teacher!
We decided to provide a “healthy lunch” at the lowest possible price, while at the same time reaching out to the community to find partners to reward our teachers for what they do! Our desire is that appreciation from the community would encourage our teachers to be GREAT!
Each week, WatchDOGS Radio host Keith Schumacher and co-host Chris Danenhauer discuss how this program is impacting families and schools across our nation and in three foreign countries.

Sarah Wiles, a teacher from Charlotte-Mecklenberg Public Schools, wrote these words...
"I am embarrassed to confess that I am a teacher! This was the title of an email sent by a high school science teacher in Mecklenberg County to the North Carolina General Assembly. One state senator had a pretty harsh response to her letter. Join us on the Butterfly Evolution show, Tuesday May 20th as we talk to Sarah Wiles, about why so many teachers like her are fustrated and just plain fed up with lies, legislators, and low pay.

Zero Tolerance is One Thing . . . But Zero Common Sense Is Another! The REAL Bullies we have in our schools are the Principles and the Teachers. The students don't have a chance when they're parents are idiots and cowards. If you are not going to rise up and defend your child from their so-called educators running roughshod over your children, then you don't deserve to have them. Give them up to people who will appreciate the child. One who will love the child and defend them.
NO MORE can we have our children taken out of school and have a criminal record on their backs for life because of finger guns. No weapon, means NO THREAT!!!!! Common Sense needs to start taking a major role in our society and right now! If you chose NOT to protect your children from these monsters, you are even a bigger bully then these so-called educators.
Stand up to the REAL Bully . . . Yourself! Protect our littlebrothers and sisters! Our future depends on it!
Tune in every weekday at 10 AM till noon to hear The Captain unlock his treasure chest of opinions and ideals facing all matters of Constitutional Freedom.
For the first 18 or so years of your life, your parent’s job was to teach, provide and guide, often giving unsolicited advice or overriding your choices. Then comes the day when you’re grown and on your own, and your parents can’t seem to loosen their grip – allowing you to be an independent adult.
There are many adults who feel that their parents don’t know their place, and over-step their boundaries – going as far as picking the right man or woman as your mate; telling you how to raise your children; and even being too involved in your relationship or marriage.
On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to delve into those “controlling parents who won’t butt-out” of their adult children’s life.

parents we will add a little to our conversation. We will also discuss the 1st Annual Recruit757 Basketball Showcase. In addition, "NCAA BOARDS GIVES 5 BIGGEST CONFERENCES MORE POWER" (article dtd 8/7/14)??? What does this mean to you as a parent if anything? Will this have an impact on your child's decision? Will these conferences now dominate the college culture?
Next article - "JUDGE RULES AGAINST NCAA IN O'BANNON CASE". Where are we on this again as parents of these athletes? This did take place under our watch, before many of them reached the age of 21 years old. So we would have been major stakeholders in their transition. Not to say we are entitled any form of funding just reasonable input
