Three miles from DC, three miles to turn this candle into a fire of humanity that takes back childhood for 53 million children being abused by the inhumane policies of test and punish. I have been on this road long enough that my every dream is of home, my wife, and my daughter. Three miles to go, three miles until these legs can rest.
How could I be silence?
How could I be apathetic?
How could I watch once more childhood be stolen?
How could I let hopelessness steal my soul?
Let it be known I am a warrior for hope?
Let it be known I am tireless?
Sunday Adelaja said: “You cannot possess your Promised Land without a battle.”
Tell on every street corner, say it in every valley, ring every bell, and shout from every mountaintop…
This warrior sees:
A promise land,
A place where humanity, love and hope drive childhood,
Tell everyone the candle is the fire, and the fire start spreading today,
I am gathering the shepherds,
Pick up your Goliath stones,
Be ready for the long walk to victory,
Remember July 24, 2015 as the day of calling,
Know that victory is promised,
Know that the price is paid,
Thus begins our year of battles,
But, we shall see that promise land of humanity for our children, parents, their teachers, and our public schools.
Today I calling all good shepherds,
Remember this:
David took had stones in case he missed a few times.
The lesson of five stones from this is David had faith, but the battle might might be long, there will be some ups and downs,
But victory is promised.
Today I bring the promise,
Victory is coming,
Three miles and five stones to DC,

Rahm is seriously saying the strike is unnecessary, avoidable and wrong.  Seriously?  No words.

Chicago Teachers vs. Rahm Emanuel and Corporatized Education


BustEDstretchMy wife  instinctively lives by this way of thinking regarding children and in doing so made a huge difference in the schools she worked for and the lives of many of the children within them. This way of thinking created a happier, easier, safer environment for all. It only takes one person to make a difference – only one.

What If Everything You Knew About Disciplining Kids Was Wrong?



RECONSTITUTED!  It reminds me of the word regurgitate. Open your eyes teachers, it’s happening in Texas, it could be your school next.  It’s time to stand up and protect your profession and the children within it!!

More than 100 CCISD teachers re-assigned



I hate school, and so do all of my friends.

If we take young people seriously, we’ll let them make school meaningful
