I would like to note that there are EXCELLENT teachers out there – – “Teaching to Test” is not the fault of those fabulous teachers.

It is the fault of the laws that hold “the system” accountable if a “child is left behind.” 

I did not take Boo out of school because the school sucked – – it is actually a really great school (with teacher to student ratio of about 15:1).  But, her teacher DID tell me that they don’t “teach” the kids – – they “prepare” them for testing. 

By the way, I got this great video from Becky at Home Sweet Homeschool.  Thanks, Becky!

Identity Theft Video

Identity Theft

This video is well worth your time to watch.  This is a 3 1/2 minute video produced by the
Broward County, FL Sheriff’s Office.  Identity thieves are at it again, this time targeting people at gas stations.  This sort of crime never occurred to me, especially since many of us never leave the side of our car when pumping gas anymore. That has apparently not improved our safety, especially for women who carry purses.  The footage of the actual crime being committed is shocking in how easy it is to pull off.  Please take heed and pass it along to friends, families and coworkers .

A friend told me about a site on-line that she thought I would really like. I finally managed to get there tonight – – and she was right…..I LOVE it!!

Part One: Religion. The Son of/Sun God – – Astrology – – Significance of the number 12.

Part Two: September 11 – – A conspiracy or terrorism?

Part Three: Now what? The dumbing down of a nation – – in order for World Dominance. Is this a Ren and Stimpy re-run?

I know that I can not force you to watch this film……but, I certainly encourage you to do so……why? For the same reason I study the Holy Books of various religious sects: Understanding. Once we can understand something, we take the first step towards change……

Step.
