  It seems that every day there is some professor giving an opinion and in some cases the media is giving them a platform. In this instance I found I have never been a fan of Twitter but as of late I may have to change my opinion on that . I started to follow the "Subject" of "Home Schooling" at Twitters suggestion. In this case I am glad I took them up on it. I saw an article that stated that a Harvard professor has stated that home schooling was dangerous for children. How could that be? Well to...

On both sides of the political aisle, workforce-training reforms are being touted as the be-all, end-all of America’s public education system. Right-wing “school choice” proponents, such as President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, push corporate charter school programs with workforce-training curriculums.

I am not one who willingly mixes religion with politics. In our Republic it is a duty to be politically active as that is the only means of self governance. You have to participate. But religion is something that falls under Liberty. The individual right to choose your belief system. I don't like to infringe that Liberty.   So why am I posting this video about the Pope speaking of the announcement of a global meeting on education?
