    NCLB Adequate Yearly Progress is a joke

    in Education

    NCLB means no child left behind but it's designed to leave millions behind because it has absolutely no accountabilty focused toward the individual. It only holds the students accountable by passing or failing the standardized test. In short it holds the children accountable to learning but it does not hold the teacher accountable to quality teaching. If the test measures the student why shouldn't the results be used to measure the quality of teaching. Quality in Quality Out.

    Chuck Smith; Common core and the disaster in American Education

    in Politics

    Join us this evening as Chuck (smithfix) Smith discusses the current situation in the educational system. 


    While most people are unaware of the America 2000/Goals 2000 manual, which laid out the coming international curriculum, and the limiting of actual education within our schools, the plan has proceeded.  Our children are now systematically limited in their education, while being fed revised history, and told our founding documents are quaint, but irrelevant. 


    Join chuck and I as we look at the current state of education and where it is all intended to go.
