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.

Recent surveys indicate that students in the U.S. are falling behind other countries in critical education areas including reading, science, and math. According to a recent study, out of 34 countries, the United States ranks 14th in reading, 17th in science and 25th in math.
As a parent, I’m sure we’ve all had the highest hopes for our children when it comes to education, and where that education will take them in successful careers.
However, with billions of dollars being piped into our school systems through our federal and local taxes, our children are still failing. With lack of supplies, less books, increased class sizes, failed or cut after-school programs, where is this money going? And why aren’t our children excelling in the areas that are crucial for seeking higher education and obtain decent paying jobs or careers?
On this episode, we will discuss the ever increasing failure of the educational system in the United States.
With the assistance of special guest, Dr. Chris L. Hickey, PhD., we will explore the solutions to the problems when it comes to the education of our children.

Oftentimes when we think of health, we don't focus on our nervous system health. It's only when we see ourselves or our loved ones suffer disorders such as tumors, Alzheimers, autoimmune disorders, or epilepsy that we then begin to look for ways that we can support our nervous system.
But it's never too early or too late to support your nervous system. I have invited a very special guest on this episode, Quila Rider R.N. C.N.M., Ac, Ph.D, founder of Alliance of Complementary Therapeutics. Dr. Rider will share with us some techniques on how to use all-natural LifeWave acupuncture patches to support your nervous system health. Join us to learn:
Several simple, yet powerful step by step procedures to use these patches to help support your nervous system (and what benefits you can expect right away).
How these patching sequences helped one man with dysfunction in his central nervous systems to get completely off his medications!
What clinical studies reveal about LifeWave's ability to balance your autonomic nervous system within just 10 minutes of patch application.
Give us a call at the number above to have your questions answered!

Your immune system is your first line of defense. Imagine it to be like the general and army of your body, looking out for invaders and bad guys. The health of your immune is vital to your very existence. Without an immune system you would literally die. Think about immune deficient illnesses such as AIDS or the boy in the bubble. Well those are extreme examples. But, even just a slight suppressed immune system can cripple you with the likes of flus, colds, headaches, nausea, general tired feeling, mental fogginess or worse.
It is the immune systems job to take care of you, so you must take care of it! There are many things that you can do to help it stay strong and efficient and it all starts with what you put in your mouth on a daily basis. Your immune system is strongly related to your gut health as 70-80% of it resides in your colon. A optimal functioning immune system must collaborate efficiently with your entire system in order for you to attain and maintain wellness.
In this episode, Dr. Budweiser, founder of Weiser Living, will discuss problems and strategies related to your immune system.
He will cover the following:

Remember when the public school system used to be a place where we honored the flag, said the pledge, had prayer, were allowed to be little boys and litte girls; if a little boy did something to a littel girl she didn't like or thought was gross the little boy didn't have to worry about being arrested or expelled but he did have to worry about her brother giving him a good old-fishioned butt kicken after school. Remember when guns where kept in the basement of the school in the JROTC room and that's also where you learned to shoot? It is not yo mamma's public school system anymore!
