Share Button



A good traditional education based on American Exceptionalism and absolute-truth is being replaced. The use of a more collectivist classroom setting are being implemented with the intent to create more diversity, equity and globalization. These goals are being accomplished with the use of technology and NEW teaching styles in the classroom. It is being said now that a teacher will no longer be a “SAGE on the STAGE” but she/he would work alongside their students being more of their friend in facilitating the inquiry of knowledge.


With the No Child Left Behind Act and Texas’s Long Range Plan for Technology, 2006-2020 you can expect your child’s education to drastically change compared to how we were taught as a student. Education reform in being rolled out across Texas at a rapid pace unbeknownst to many parents and taxpayers.

The Texas Education Agency & Texas Eduction Service Centers through the use of federal grant money and the Obama’s stimulus package along with policy changes have been implementing the reform from 2006. Texas teachers now are graded on key areas as to their expertise and implementation of technology in the classroom, Teaching and Learning; Educator Preparation and Development; Leadership, Administration and Instructional Support; and Infrastructure for Technology.

You can learn about how your child’s classroom is being drastically changed what is expected of our teachers as well as how they are graded by viewing the following document titled the

A Right to Bear Arms not GUNS!! In TEXAS no Less!

I have to admit at 53 years of age I still find enjoyment in a fresh new box of crayons and new coloring book. Yes, I can still enjoying the art of coloring and drawing. The following blog in no way is to make fun of the student’s work but to criticize the teaching now taking place in Texas and the Nation. Online learning has become a HUGE focus in public schools now. Teachers post students work and pictures of the kids for the world to see. They want the students to connect with other world-wide. I find danger in letting children have free access to the internet but your local public school is not as concerned about your child’s safety as you are. The learning philosophy being utilized is called Project Based Learning, it is based on the collective the community in promotion of diversity, equity and globalization. American sovereignty is not taught in public school today, not even in Texas.

I found the following tweet on twitter praising the classwork of a Texas Student on their study of the Bill of Rights. I had originally thought it would be the work of an elementary student, with all the pretty pictures and colors.  You can understand my shock and amazement when I realized is was the work a 9th Grade  High School student. Is this the new TRANSFORMATION in Texas Education that Texas Superintendents are looking for?  Carrie Ross is an certified English Teacher at Trinity Independent School District.

In the students defense if he/she had actually drawn a gun, they probably would face school suspension in our politically correct society.

After posting the above post Ms. Ross contacted me through twitter and wanted me to remove the post. Why? Why would you post it for the world to see then ask me to remove it. I am want to reiterate my criticism is not of the student but of the assignment. Teach the students the truth! Why we actually have a 2nd amendment is to stop a dictatorship. Obama and his left cronies would love to have our guns. They do not want an armed citizenry. Unarmed citizens will leave unable to protect our FREEDOM and our all our rights as American citizens.


“If you serve a child a rotten hamburger in America, federal, state and local agencies

will investigate you, summon you, close you down, whatever.

But if you provide a child with a rotten education, nothing happens, except

that you’re liable to be given more money to do it with.” — Ronald Reagan
