I would like to preface this post by saying that I was raised by a family who respected and honored our mothers. They taught me more about life, nurturing, teaching, devotion to duty, teaching, AND FINANCES than I ever learned in our public school system or in university later on. These women were; AND STILL ARE; the bedrock of our society. Our men were the civil engineers of our time, but the women worked along side of us and still raised us kids, healed us when we were sick, taught us what we needed to know about survival in today's world, and were the real glue that held the American family together.
However, I would like you to read later in this post what Allen West has to say about what Prog Womyn have done to our schools and our society in general over the past decades.
This so-called "war on women" should be turned around on the Left and called what it really is...
The Prog Chick's War on the American Child...male or female.
“Louisiana is poised to establish the nation's most expansive system of school choice by adopting a package of vouchers and other tools that would give many parents control over the use of tax dollars to educate their children.
The initiative would effectively redefine vouchers, which have typically helped lower-income public-school students pay for private schools. Vouchers could now also be used by students to pay for state-approved apprenticeships at local businesses, as well as college courses and private online classes, while they are still in public schools.
The legislation would also pave the way for the rapid growth of charter schools—public schools run by non government entities—and make Louisiana one of a handful of states to adopt a ‘parent trigger’ provision, letting parents vote to convert their low-performing schools into charters. Louisiana's legislature passed the sweeping education package last week, and Gov. Bobby Jindal, the Republican architect of the overhaul, hopes to sign it into law next week, said a spokesman..."

In a piece Dr. Green and eight other researchers published for Education Week in February, four specific areas of agreement are emphasized.
- School choice improves student outcomes—voucher programs have a significant positive effect on graduation rates and lead to modest improvements in math and/or reading scores.
- School choice improves public schools—voucher programs have a positive effect on the performance of public schools in the area.
- School choice saves taxpayers money—even with conservative assumptions of the impact of school choice on state and district budgets, the results have been positive.
- School choice has not harmed students, taxpayers or schools—whether it be in studies of academic performance or public finances or the quality of public schools, voucher programs have not been shown to have any negative effects.

CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — A new evaluation of New Jersey schools lists nearly every Camden public school among the worst in the state.
Twenty-three of the 26 schools in the Camden School District ranked among the worst performing schools in New Jersey, under the state’s new accountability system.
New Jersey got a federal waiver from the requirements of the “No Child Left Behind” law, so this system replaces the “Adequate Yearly Progress” measurement used for assessing compliance with that...Read More
This Is How We Are Failing Our Children...from Allen West
Last week, Tea Party favorite Rep. Allen West (R-FL) addressed his base at a Women Impacting Nation (WIN) meeting in Boca Raton, FL. WIN’s mission is to “educate and equip women with knowledge of God’s truth” and “to support those who take a stand for those Judeo-Christian values upon which our country is founded.” West used examples of “historical fiction” to instruct attendees on the proper role for American women — namely, to make strong men.
West first weaved the ancient society of Sparta — a culture that practiced eugenics and inspired Adolf Hitler — into an example of the role of women. “What made the Spartan men strong, it was the Spartan women,” he said. “Because the Spartan women at the age of nine gave up their male sons” to train for the army. West then exulted conservative women to come forth and “lock shields” to “strengthen up the men who are going to the fight for you.” Painting women’s rights advocates as “women that have been neutering American men,” West charged attendees to fight these apparent castrators who want to force male subservience:
WEST: We need you to come in and lock shields, and strengthen up the men who are going to the fight for you. To let these other women know on the other side — these planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness — to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient. That’s what we need you to do. Because if you don’t, then the debt will continue to grow…deficits will continue to grow...From Think ProgressWatch it: HERE
