The Way to Save America~ MOMS, DADS and TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL
And a little Kenny Chesney…..
“I grew up in a really small town, where what we had was school, friends, church, and sports, mainly football. Where I grew up our town leaned on our football team. When I learned about the tradition that comes with this community, (Celina, Texas) and how this community leans on the football team, it was inspiring.” – Kenny Chesney_________________________________________________________________________________
21st Century learning is shifting education away from a transmission of knowledge, that parents still expect from our schools to an emphasis on altering the students world-views, their values, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.
Therefore, the question must be… Whose values, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors?
In addition, if we continue to believe the false narrative of government regulated “School Choice” and
College and Career Readiness; we will give the federal government via the state access to control the values, beliefs, behaviors, and worldview that is taught in our private schools.
What is happening in education today is very dangerous. Do you realize if they collapse our traditional public school system what we will lose? The very heart of our ‘Constitutional Republic’. The ability to vote locally and control those who have access to the hearts and minds of our children. Parents, teachers, and coaches- those closest to America’s children being in control. The community is in control because they have a locally elected school board, the people can put in office and take out of office based on the education of the local children.
If Parents and Taxpayers actually stopped to pay attention. They would realize our K-12 traditional public schools are being set up to fail through AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress.) “LOCAL COMPLIANCE DOES NOT = LOCAL CONTROL.”
In the Past Kids use to Fail – NOT SCHOOLS!
21st Century learning may look good and sounds good, but let me assure you, it is sending us down a “VERY DANGEROUS PATH.”
