Parenting expert Laurie A. Couture compiled a list of concerns for teachers to consider in the context of their own education.

While she was criticized for using generalities, her post was directed toward those teachers who believe parents need to head Clark's advice. There were teachers who were upset that I would publish a piece like this on my blog. Unfortunately, some followers even unsubscribed. Despite this, I shared Laurie's concerns for two reasons.

The current measles outbreak and measles vaccines are a hot topic of debate raging in both the mainstream and alternative media. However, it would appear that the mainstream media's reporting on this issue is leaving out some very important facts.

Given the severity of the issue and the current rhetoric, which includes some in the mainstream media calling for criminal prosecution and incarceration of parents who refuse the measles vaccine, it is very important that all the facts involving the measles vaccine are revealed to the public. Unfortunately, one topic in the discussion about measles vaccines that the mainstream media is completely ignoring is the fact that whistleblowers have come forward to reveal massive fraud connected with the current measles vaccine.

When the Tea Party calls for real cuts in our welfare state, it is typically denigrated by the left as "extremist." It would be a mistake though, to regard this response as mere name-calling. It is far more significant-and dangerous.

This smear is an instance of a widespread technique regularly employed to undermine capitalism. From the campaign for "stakeholder rights" to the campaign against "insider trading," the same insidious tactic is being used: the tactic of the conceptual "package-deal." Let's say you oppose the idea that a corporation's fundamental objective should be to make money for its stockholders. You could present various collectivist arguments, contending that the means of production should be controlled by "society as a whole," rather than by selfish, profit-seeking individuals. Or you could take the more devious approach of trying to erase the very concept of a stockholder. How? By introducing the pseudo-concept of "stakeholder."

A little while ago I published a post by cognitive scientist Roger C. Schank who wrote that contrary to popular opinion, algebra is not necessary and STEM education is overrated.

In this follow-up piece, Schank goes subject by subject explaining why he thinks they are useless and why so many kids hate learning them. Schank, also an artificial intelligence theorist and education reformer, has taught at Stanford and Yale universities and is the John Evans Professor Emeritus of Computer Science, Psychology, and Education at Northwestern University. Schank, the former head of the Institute for the Learning Sciences, is the author of "Teaching Minds: How Cognitive Science Can Save Our Schools." A version of this appeared on his Education Outrage blog.

Mark Twain has special relevance for those of us who live at the foot of the Feather River Canyon, in a county formed by argonauts who came here seeking the gold up that river.

The years following the Gold Rush drew lots of people to California, and Twain was one of them. The time he spent in San Francisco, in Sacramento, and in the mining camps of the Sierra Nevada allows us to lay a proprietary claim on the man and at least a few ounces of his literary gold.

While some parents cite religious and moral reasons, others say they are keeping their kids out of public schools to protect them from school-related racism.

Despite the promises of the civil rights movement, "people are starting to realize that public education in America was designed for the masses of poor, and its intent has been to trap poor people into being workers and servants. If you don't want that for your children, then you look for something else," she says. To her, the biggest flaw in public education is a lack of character education, an "absence of a moral binding," that contributes to low expectations - and lower outcomes for children of color.

It is one of life's little ironies that, just as neuroscience has confirmed the huge importance of attachment in early learning, the people who once selflessly took on the role of faithful assistants to each generation are no longer available to do the jo

There has so far been little research into the emotional effects of institutionalised early care, but what there is gives cause for concern. Government researchers have noticed a "small but significant difference in a large group of children" for whom daycare led to "withdrawn, compliant or sad" behaviour or to higher levels of aggression.
