From parents, to students, to administrators, teachers and policy makers, teachers around the country call out the real issues behind today’s declining U.S. education system. In pursuit of answers and solutions, educators will provide an in-depth analysis and insightful perspectives on the factors and variables that determine a student’s future.
Hosts Tammy Gaitor and Rodney Jordan look at each piece of the educational puzzle: from a cultural disconnect among teachers and students, to standardized testing, ineffective educational policies, inadequate administrators and most importantly, perspectives from “on the ground” soldiers in the battle for educational equality.
Backed with hands-on experience and keen insights, Gaitor and Jordan conclude that America’s educational system is in a state of crisis; and, unless significant actions are taken, the system will continue to rapidly decline.

Matt Frendewey is the National Communications Director for The American Federation for Children. Led by the NEA and AFT, the national teachers' unions boasted of spending $80 million in this election to defeat candidates who support vouchers, teacher accountability and other promising education reforms. They lost. And they lost big.
The number one target for school choice opponents was Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, an unapologetic supporter of vouchers for kids in the struggling under-performing schools. The unions spent millions to defeat Walker – three times – and they lost all three times.
The American Federation for Children and the Alliance for School Choice seek to improve our nation’s K-12 education by advancing systemic and sustainable public policy that empowers parents, particularly those in low-income families, to choose the education they determine is best for their children.

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.

Who’s responsible for a child to learn math, reading, comprehension, writing and other fundamental skills? Is it the sole responsibility of the parent/guardian or the teacher? Do you think that they should share the responsibility? Yes, is the obvious answer, but is it really that simple? “It takes a village to raise a child.” In other words, it takes the encouragement from many individuals in a child’s life to assist them as they learn valuable social skills and strive to achieve academic success. After all, these children are our future, the future leaders of our world. Are we working together? Are we, teachers and parents, doing our part to help them become productive members of society?

On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we are going to try to figure out the "why?" to teachers having sex with students.
Beginning with the infamous Mary Kay Letourneay case in 1995, we have all been fascinated with teachers, namely females, who cross the line and have sexual relationships with their students. It is truly mind-boggling. One of the many questions that typically go unANSWERed is, "Why do teachers sleep with students?"
According to an AP study, between 2001 and 2005, 2,570 educators had their teaching credentials revoked, denied, surrendered or sanctioned following allegations of sexual misconduct. The interesting fact about this is while only ten percent of those teachers were women; female teachers who have slept with their students receive the lion's share of media attention. Why is that?
We decided to see if we can ANSWER once and for all, why we see this growing trend within our education system.
Thank you for tuning in.
The deaths of Oral Roberts, Paul Crouch and more recently, the tragic death of Myles Monroe, have once again caused conversation, confusion and controversy within the body of Christ. Some Christians believe it's inappropriate, poor timing and bad taste for Christians to say anything negative about the lives of those who preached a different Jesus or a different gospel that have died. Others hold to a different view and believe whenever statements about false teachers aren't true, it is the responsibility of the believer to speak the truth in an attempt to hinder the further spreading of misinformation and deception.
What should be the attitude of Christians toward families of false teachers who have died? What does the Bible say?
