Monday Open Thread – February 9th

Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Stella made an excellent point that got lost yesterday, regarding common core. I’m not a fan, and would prefer to see a much simpler, reading, writing and arithmetic curriculum until students gain proficiency. But stella’s point was, common core is not the problem. Federal control of education standards is. If individual school boards like it, so be it

      One problem with Common Core is ‘larded’ (like most legislative bills contain pork) with socialist/communist/Islamist propaganda.
      Another problem is the illogical/irrational processes are damaging to human cognitive function.

      Common Core is child abuse.

        I’m not a fan, either. I don’t think it is my business, however, to tell people in another school district that they may not follow the Common Core standard. That is up to the people who live in that district.

        The discussion came up when we were talking about Scott Walker, who is in favor of leaving up to each district in his state what education standard they will use. Sounds like a conservative position to me.

So much that should be handled by individual states has been taken over by the federal government. The federal government should be focusing on the security of our nation first and foremost but they are consumed with micro-managing the lives of every citizen.

        It is big government. The bigger the government gets the less free the people are. Now the politicians are on their high horse telling everyone what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. When the government was small it did not matter so much what the imbeciles did. Nowadays it really does matter because they have too much power and too much control. Seek safe harbor because it is going to get much worse before better. It is too big not to fail.

        It isn’t just a list. It is a program that is to be followed to the letter complete with a script. if you look at the Common Core Curriculum posted online for the states (employees have access to the complete materials) you will see the entire school year for a subject tells teachers what to do and what to say and what examples to use and how to work the problems exactly like they want and what a correct student answer is. A computer could deliver the content better.

        If it were just national objective complete with scope and sequence it would be an okay thing to have for transient students. That was the whole idea, btw, in the beginning: Give schools a list of objectives to be taught at the same time in every school so transient students don’t miss instruction. We have entirely changed our school systems to benefit lower-income people who move around.

        We teach to weakness now. We will lose our strengths by the next generation.

      One of the problems with Common Core is that, if Arne Duncan and gang get their way, the content will be the basis for testing, as in acceptance into advanced placement or passing college entrance exams, etc. If the student has not learned and is not able to spit back this content, (s)he will not score well on the test. This comment is coming from a colleague who works for one of the major textbook publishing companies and is watching the revisions of the materials she sells to urban school districts for high school students, mostly at the AP level…

      …which, she also says, has been dumbed down remarkably since her children attended school; i.e. AP has become a political football for stating how well a school is teaching by counting the number of students enrolled in AP classes. This may not mean anything as the content is not what it used to be. The same goes for graduation rates. The school may graduate most of its students, but many of those going to college have to take remedial courses to be at the same level as students coming from more demanding private schools.

      I, frankly, hate Common Core content. We have serious problems with literacy in this country that this “new” policy totally ignores and/or makes worse by not using logic. It used to be true that, once a student learned basic phonics and basic math, they could almost teach themselves if given access to a library and, when necessary, a coach. Now it’s a 24/7 job requiring multiple levels of administrators, testers, data coordinators, social workers and tutors not to mention a computer or tablet and never-ending updates in software. Follow the money.

        Exactly – it’s the CURRICULUM and CONTENT that are being developed that are the real problem.

        Bill Bennet (supposedly a conservative) was on Fox last week as an apologist for Common Core, I think because he was a former Secretary of Education or something.

        He painted opponents as ill-informed buffoons and kept exclaiming “Common Core is simply a set of STANDARDS to be met”, not once addressing curriculum. And the brain-dead interviewing news-host/spokesmodel never brought up curriculum or questioned him about that.

        I had to restrain myself from screaming at my TV.

      In the Landmark Books biography of Amos Fortune, it describes how the unfortunate were dealt with in a small New Hampshire (?) village.
      A woman’s husband had died, leaving her with 6 kids. She was completely overwhelmed, unable to care and provide for her kids without her husband.
      So she submitted herself and kids for auction to the lowest bidders, other families each bidding to take in one person from her family into their home for a year.
      Her 15 year old son received a very low bid, because he would be useful doing chores to help offset the cost to the family that took him in.
      The little children auctioned for a higher price, because they cost more to provide for, with little productive return.
      The sum of the winning bids was divided up as a tax on the community – everyone helped pay for the families to take in the mother and children for the year.
      Being a small village, they were still able to visit each other.
      It struck me as a compassionate and practical solution.

    I referred to this in another thread. It boggles the mind that people can actually think this is a good thing. When my kids were young I had people telling me I should purposely expose them to chicken pox, I thought they were nuts then. Why would I intentionally make them sick? My daughter did catch chicken pox in the 4th grade but not because I intentionally exposed her to it. Someone sent their child to school with chicken pox and exposed the entire class before the school became aware she had it. They sent her home as soon as they saw it, but it was too late for all those already exposed and half the class came down with chicken pox along with several children of other grades who caught it from her on the bus.
    Both of my sons caught it from their sister. They were fortunate and didn’t have it bad, but they also didn’t have much fun and all of them now have at least one pox scar. I even had parents of kids not school age asking if they could bring their kids over while they had it. I told them no.
    Now though the same kind of nutty people are doing it with measles.

        Whooping cough can kill an infant and so can measles. So I hope these idiots aren’t intentionally exposing infants to either.
        I remember when my oldest son was 6 months old he broke out in what at first appeared to be measles bumps when they first started appearing. I had read and remembered all the stories my mother told me. I was in a state of panic and called the doctor immediately and was told to bring him in immediately. They met me outside the clinic and took blood. It turned out to be roseola.
        The doctor was stumped by him because he hadn’t ran an high fever before breaking out. He had been running a low grade temp and had a runny nose for about a week, but me and the doctor had just thought it was due to he was teething.
        Remembering my panic, I can’t imagine someone purposely wanting their child to get the measles.

        As I recall, the thinking about exposing the children to chicken pox (which was the norm in our community) was: get it over with while they were younger and obtain immunity for them so that they wouldn’t get it when they were older when (as the belief went) the disease (like mumps) could be far more difficult for them to deal with.

          I don’t know how well that theory worked. My daughter had the least breakouts and was the least sick. My son who was in the 2nd grade at the time had it a little worse than her. My youngest though who wasn’t school age yet got it the worst, still not as bad as some kids get it, but he even had it inside his mouth which it made it difficult for him to eat or drink and ran a higher fever and was just sick longer.
          I don’t know if it was just a belief or fact but I remember several people including healthcare workers tell me that my daughter would get it again because she didn’t have it bad enough. I know they also said if you get it as an adult it’s worse, but I’ve never personally knew anyone who had it as an adult.
          I would probably vaccinate for it now, more because they can get shingles later on in life. They had just started mandating the vaccine when my youngest started school, but by then he had already had it.

          I still though could never had intentionally taken them around someone with chicken pox.

                Shingles vaccine is now recommended specifically for elderly just because of the misery of the thing. I delayed getting it because I wasn’t sure of the actual necessity and because I didn’t see any reason to stick the taxpayer with the cost of the vaccination via Medicare – Turns out I didn’t have to worry about that since it’s not covered by Medicare Part D/Humana and it cost me $200 out of pocket at the pharmacy. Doc recommended I get it because, as he said, the price tag for treating shingles would be a lot higher than the price tag for the vaccination. It’s all a money racket at this point.

                BTW, Humana does have a really nifty prescription program: they collect my premium every month, year after year, and never pay anything on any prescription. Such a deal.

                  The last time he had them they prescribed lidoderm patches and two different kinds of pills. I want to say all three cost around $100, the patches I know were the most expensive.

        My sister was telling me about something she read in her local paper. This lady who was only 24 had 4 kids in foster care and had been charged with murdering her 5 week old infant. Her first child she had when she was 16 and abandoned it when it was a few hours old in a little league baseball/softball complex’ bathroom. The second child she had taken away after being arrested for theft and a neighbor read she had been arrested and contacted authorities alerting them to the fact that she had a 6 month old baby. That baby they found left in a playpen in her apartment.
        The third child her and her boyfriend were charged and convicted with abusing when it was 3 months old, that baby had a broken leg and bloody whelps on it’s back and buttocks.
        The fourth child she left in the hospital. (A blessing for that child imho.)
        Now she’s charged with murdering the 5 week old, the baby had multiple bruises and fractures.

        I saw the other day that we have a local congressman introducing a bill for chemical castration for sex offenders. I would be good with a law that allows a parent who abuses and abandons their children to agree to sterilization in place of a prison sentence. Although, I have no idea if this woman ever served any time for her multiple offenses, she certainly would have been a candidate for sterilization.

    Democrats in Georgia want to pass a “Too Young to Suspend Act”. It would cover pre-K through third grade.

          We have to right-size our approach so that what we do isn’t counterproductive, though.

          Words matter. Especially when used as in crowd hypnosis.

          They have to be intelligent-sounding.

            Taqi said: “Words matter. Especially when used as in crowd hypnosis. They have to be intelligent-sounding.”

            They’re also chosen from a carefully-constructed vocabulary of terms intended to shut down all criticism and any further questioning or debate.

            “Right-size” – you can’t argue with that! It’s the right approach we’re taking! It’s the right size! It’s right! Look – it’s right there in the title!

            It might sound a bit more unseemly to say “we need to downsize our defense posture commensurate with this threat, which certainly is not on the scale of WWII or even the recent hyper-blunderous Iraq misadventure.”

            No – someone might choose to differ on how much we should be downsizing our military or exactly what scale threat we’re facing.

            No – better to shout out “Hey! Butt outski! Weah right-sizin’ over heah!” (in best Brooklyn pipe-fitters’ accent).

    Kanye West storms Grammy stage and tells Beck that Beyoncé deserves his award. Kanye is a special kind of black racist, as well as a mental midget. I really despise this guy and don’t understand why they keep letting him attend the Grammys.

      If you boil down his rants, what he’s really going on about is that he’s enraged that white people win awards.

      Yes, racist of the highest order.
