    Make no mistake about where a lawless President Barack Obama and the UN are taking you Like the mother who gives her children a fleeting glance of the ice cream dessert to get them to eat their veggies, last week’s historic papal visit was eye candy to keep the attention of the masses away from the radical changes coming society’s way. Mesmerized by the televised addresses of Pope Francis to Congress and the United Nations, a majority of plain folk didn’t feel a thing when the noose of Global Citizenship was being lowered over their collective necks. The mainstream media’s...

    A little while back I spent several months researching the Common Core curriculum, and what I discovered absolutely shocked me. At times, it left me utterly incredulous. I wrote a two-part article on the subject. I still have part three (final installment) in progress. And I will be wrapping up that series of articles here in the near future. But the deeper I dig into Common Core, the more it has led me on numerous research paths, some of which interlock with what I thought were unrelated research paths. I still haven’t absorbed or synthesized it all. One of the...

    Proud parents and grandparents are sharing photos of their kids’ first day of school. And as students head back, many states are pushing back—telling the Obama Administration that its federal education plan isn’t right for their students. Anyone who has taught in a classroom knows how different children are from school to school—even from class to class. Teachers understand that the content, methods, and evaluations they use will differ depending on the makeup of the class. A teacher might teach her 9:40 a.m. Algebra II class differently than her 1:40 p.m. Algebra II class. And she’ll make that decision based...

    Treason University Recently, I received an unsolicited copy of Foreign Affairs magazine, the house organ for the Council on Foreign Relations. Between page 54 and 55 of the Jan/Feb 2009 issue, this ad leapt out at me. Two women are chatting in front of the UN, with a line of flags behind them. The headline is: "As a global citizen, to whom do I pledge allegience?" The sub headline reads: "The traditional state-to-state mindset may be at odds with the realities of our increasingly globalized planet." The rest of the ad is about the need to create global citizens who...

    You may well have come across the notion of 'Global Citizenship', but what does it mean? It is a term being used increasingly in educational circles, and consequently there are a variety of views about what it is. These range from the idea that everyone is a citizen of the globe to the standpoint that in a legal sense there is no such thing as a global citizen. At Oxfam Education, we believe that Global Citizenship is more than the sum of its parts. It goes beyond simply knowing that we are citizens of the globe to an acknowledgement of...

    The Dixie Chicks aren't the only Texas natives bashing President George W. Bush.Sandy Duncan who is performing in South Carolina, told a local paper that she questioned the decision to go to war, and wishes that rather than President Bush, the United States had a leader who was 'globally aware' and 'really smart.''I just wish men would quit thinking they could just duke it out with each other,' the native of Henderson, Texas, told the Times and Democrat.'I don't have all of the facts, and who knows what's really the truth, but I really don't respect [President Bush's] way of...
