Who is responsible for Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance in our Children?
Did you know that the US Department of Ed has a report: Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance: Critical Factors for Success in the 21st Century which came out February 14, 2013. Sorry Nomiki Konst your narrative is not true.
Watch this video and then tell me. Who is responsible for teaching “OUR” children ethics and “Social Emotional Learning”? FYI~ when Nomiki Konst, says this was led by parents she is not telling the truth. Much like they said Common Core was state led and CSCOPE was district led. Frankly I am tired of the lies! Thank you Emmett McGroarty for speaking truth!
Now read this brilliant article from my friend The Contemporary Insurgent Michael Bohr. Are you a parent who will take his call to action serious and go from #CANiSEE to #iCANSEE the truth and I will stand and protect my child!
The problems in today’s world of public education are not the schools, nor are they the students.
The problem is that of those seeking control of our schools and, in deed, our children.
From what ever the perspective they come from, whether it be ideological progressivism or unbridled corporatism, both camps are waging a full and jointly supported war against the classical local, parental control of schools and the education of the young, through the use of exclusionary policies and the hammer-fist of state and federal financing.
Both camps have decided that the first goal is to remove the values of America freedom and liberty from the minds of both parent and child, leaving us bereft of any choice but the artificial ones they present.
The choices are falsely portrayed to us as “left vs right” and “progressivist vs corporatist”.
It is an illusionary war because in truth, these seemingly opposing forces have joined together in an alliance of ill intent.
Big Business and Big Labor have both conspired to take the reigns of Big Government and have done so in the name of “the best interests of the child”.
Parents, who are the first and forever educators of their children, are the only people who hold the right to determine “the best interests of their child”.
Everyone one else has an agenda that puts their best interests over those of the child and they have done so by taking control of our government.
Their hope is that we continue to fight the false battles they lay down before us and forget that we, the parents, are the sole authority in determining the education and upbringing of our children.
It is long past time we remind them of this and tell them, “no, you cannot run rough shod over our rights and you cannot use and abuse our children for profit or political advantage”.
They can take our schools but they can’t take our kids.
Big Government, Big Labor and Big Business all depend upon either a)our largess or b)our ignorance in order to exist.
Give them neither!
Educate yourselves and your children to see through the deceit of the powers that be.
This is not a left vs right fight… This is a “parents vs all of them” fight… and the stakes are our kids.
Stand up and tell your employers, your unions and your government to butt out of education.
Parents and Teachers together know best how to educate children, not them.
