    Educational System is not Teaching Kids so Why are we Handcuffing the Teachers?

    in Social Networking

    Schools are no longer a path to cultivation and a life of the mind; they are on a path of a job. Along the way, as schools became a training ground for corps of workers, they also became a means of furthering national interests. The debate about schools had become part of the debate about national power. Which brings us to the twenty-first century.


    When George W. Bush announced No Child Left Behind (NCLB), his purported intention was to encourage a set of practices and institute a set of assessments that would ensure every child got the same good start at school. Implicit in that formulation was the now familiar premise that it was up to schools to close the income gap between the rich and the poor. In its most beneficent form, it could have made a powerful difference in the lives of many children. If NCLB had ensured that all kids would learn how to read and that no child would become disenchanted enough to drop out, it might have been wonderful. But that’s not how NCLB played out.


    Within just a few years, teachers were rushing to make sure that each child got a higher score on the standardized tests than he or she had gotten the year before. School superintendents also felt compelled to see to it that their schools got higher scores every year. What had been promoted as a means of ensuring that all children received the fruits of our educational system became a relentless push toward improved test scores. With each year, more and more focus was on the scores themselves and less on the education the scores were intended to measure. At the national level, politicians threatened that if we didn’t educate everyone, once again our country might fall behind. The conversation was less about giving everyone access to reading, thoughtful engagement in civic life, or the pleasures of ideas, and much more about seeing to it that everyone could earn a decent wage.

    Part 2 - The Teaching of YHWH's Word is For Ysrael's Salvation

    in The Bible

    Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of YHWH our Saviour in all things.


    11 For the grace of YHWH that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,


    12 Teaching us that, denying unrighteousness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, and righteously, in this present world;


    13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great YHWH the Father and our YHWH the Son;


    14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.


    15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
