There is one thing we all care about and that is our kids. This is the very reason that Common Core was the resolution that needed to be discussed when our party came to do business. This conversation is the one that should have happened in the legislature before any executive branch official signed the Race to the Top grant back in 2010. Bypassing the consent of the governed is always a bad idea because the people will eventually be heard.
So there I am coaching third base for my 9-year-old son's little league team. Man on second, one out. The batter hits a ground ball to third, and the fielder promptly boots it, so I send the runner in to home plate. He's ahead of the ball --
Women's reproductive rights have enjoyed a half-century or so of well-defined proponents and opponents, but the recently flourishing fertility industry, from egg harvesting to surrogacy, has produced fresh and surprising alliances among former foes.. Feminists, traditionalists, Catholics, evangelicals, ethicists and atheists
Are we the people still willing to take up the torch for those who have given their last full measure on behalf of liberty and freedom?
Dear Public School Teachers in Georgia:. It looks as if you have survived another year of underwhelming support from state legislators, many of whom would kiss a tree toad if so instructed by the anti-public education crowd. I know it is frustrating
Despite Rubio's ridiculous radio and TV ad campaign, a Rasmussen poll last week shows only 30 percent think the government is likely to actually secure the border if the Gang of Eight legalization scam passes. Apparently, the other 70 percent remember 1986. Here's hoping we remember the many faces of Marco Rubio as long.
I don't make a habit of responding to other columns in this paper, but I would like to add something to one that appeared Thursday by Esther Cepeda.. The headline was "Hang-ups with official languages," and concerned her belief that English will continue
I’m into “Missing una investigacion,” the latest book by Chilean novelist Alberto Fuguet. I’m reading it in Spanish since I have to consciously practice my native language or it vanishes. My family speaks English, lest we leave spouses and children out.
President Obama gave two commencement addresses in one to graduates of Morehouse College in Atlanta last weekend. It would be easy for this conservative to critique the political and social elements of his speech. Instead, I choose to focus on the inspirational part.
This is a busy week. Memorial Day is in the offing, school lets out and graduation ceremonies abound. There are many stories to be told, which means it will also be a busy week for us here at the paper. In turn, we
Tyranny is no longer lurking. It's here.
WASHINGTON -- Leaving aside the seriousness of lawlessness, and the corruption of our civic culture by the professionally pious, this past week has been amusing. There was the spectacle of advocates of an ever-larger regulatory government expressing shock about such government's large capacity for misbehavior. And, entertainingly, the answer
CHICAGO -- It's that time. If you're a teacher in a school with a large concentration of Hispanic students, you're doing end-of-year reviews and preparing for final exams -- and you have kids trickling up to you to let you know they won't be around for them.. This
It hasn't been a great week for the Obama folks, as the scandal du jour tour has firmly taken hold. Every day it seems another federal agency is exposed as having intimidated, snooped, covered up or gone to Vegas on the taxpayer dime. Zimbabwe is even making fun of us
WASHINGTON -- At the end of a truly dismal week in his presidency, President Obama remains lucky in one crucial category: his opposition..
