With Great Freedom Comes Great Responsibility

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - What many schools do is teach for tests, higher tests scores ensures more funding from the Federal Leviathan. And why are they doing this? Because the teaching is being nationalized, it is becoming controlled by the national government, and the kids are being turned into nothing more than data collectors for the Feds. But the most important things that we learn in school can't be measured in a spreadsheet, things like values, morals, and virtue, so how do we get back to the Freedom, the responsibility, of educating our youth outside of common core and the Federal system? It starts at home. For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already!

The Education System Should Not Be Compulsory Or Public

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Number two, when we talk about the public school system, people perceive it and treat it as though the funding for it is a foregone conclusion and that it has always been that way. It hasn’t always been that way. Whether you have children in the school systems or not, you’re still required to fund it. The parents that have their children, even if both of them work, they certainly are paying. They’re funding them whether they choose to or not. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Tug of War on Boys in Public Schools

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Time Magazine has an article about how school has become too hostile for boys. A young boy was suspended for chewing the sides off of a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun and "shooting" it at someone. Another boy was suspended for throwing an imaginery hand grenade to save the world. These draconian enforcements of the "zero tolerance" policy are keeping boys from being boys. When young boys can't use their imagination other areas of their learning skills are inhibited, creative writing for one. In almost all of the instances where the boys were suspended when they were asked "why they did it" they responded with "Because it's fun".

The Four Million Dollar Teacher: Made in Korea?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Many kids are going back to school in late August or early September and the question always comes up, "Are they actually learning anything?" Well, because we have such a QUANTITY of education here, that is so heavily regulated by standards such as the Common Core, that they are actually dumbing down the curriculum of schools. So is there any place in the educated world that actually has an education market that values Quality over Quantity? Yes... South Korea, in private tutors. Many students choose their own teachers which creates highly sought out, and highly paid, Rock Star Educators such as Kim Ki-Hoon who made $4 Million last year alone. Can you imagine a teacher in the United States making that much? I thought only athletes and movie stars were supposed to make that kind of money.

Education Isn’t Just For Students, Teachers Can Learn New Things Too

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - In most states, continuing education is required by law for many professions... Doctors for example need to be educated about the latest drugs. So why aren't our educators required to do this? And we're not saying that this should be administered by the state, not at all. But shouldn't the people educating our youth be up to date on the latest technologies, teaching methods, etc.? And what has happened to teaching the classics in school? Now again, we're not talking about Harry Potter or even To Kill A Mockingbird (a modern classic, yes) but true classics like Homer's The Odyssey and The Iliad. They have been pushed to the side in favor of "what is popular", well, how about doing "what is right"?

The Erosion of Education as a Result of Federal Intervention

NEW ORLEANS, La. - In an attempt to look hip and salvage his ever-plunging approval rating, President Obama held his Twitter Townhall on Wednesday. Per usual, the solutions offered all rely on further interference by the federal leviathan. Despite a dismal record of accomplishment in every sphere the government has inserted itself, i.e. education, charity, retirement et al, President Obama did his best to convince the American people that THIS federal intervention will be different from all the prior abysmal failures.
