An Ass was being driven along a road leading down the mountain side, when he suddenly took it into his silly head to choose his own path.
They who will not listen to reason but stubbornly go their own way against the friendly advice of those who are wiser than they, are on the road to misfortune. Some days later, while stalking his prey in the forest, the Lion was caught in the toils of a hunter's net. One day as he sat watching the Sheep and the quiet forest, and thinking what he would do should he see a Wolf, he thought of a plan to amuse himself.
His Master had told him to call for help should a Wolf attack the flock, and the Villagers would drive it away.
As he expected, the Villagers who heard the cry dropped their work and ran in great excitement to the pasture. Then one evening as the sun was setting behind the forest and the shadows were creeping out over the pasture, a Wolf really did spring from the underbrush and fall upon the Sheep. A Gnat flew over the meadow with much buzzing for so small a creature and settled on the tip of one of the horns of a Bull.
Two Travellers, walking in the noonday sun, sought the shade of a widespreading tree to rest. A Stork of a very simple and trusting nature had been asked by a gay party of Cranes to visit a field that had been newly planted. The Sheep in the pasture were much astonished and amused at the Pig's behavior, and followed the Shepherd and his charge to the pasture gate. Two men were traveling in company along the road when one of them picked up a well-filled purse.
We cannot expect any one to share our misfortunes unless we are willing to share our good fortune also. One day as the Lion walked proudly down a forest aisle, and the animals respectfully made way for him, an Ass brayed a scornful remark as he passed. Jupiter saw what simple and foolish creatures they were, but to keep them quiet and make them think they had a king he threw down a huge log, which fell into the water with a great splash.
Now there was a certain old Owl who had become very cross and hard to please as she grew older, especially if anything disturbed her daily slumbers.
But the Grasshopper answered saucily that he had as much right to his place in the sun as the Owl had to her place in the old oak. The wise old Owl knew quite well that it would do no good to argue with the Grasshopper, nor with anybody else for that matter.
Just then an immense shadow blotted him out entirely, and the next instant a Lion struck him down with a single blow. But just then the royal Cat spied him, and the next instant, the Rat knew he was not quite so important as an Elephant.
The stones were flying thick and fast and the Boys were enjoying themselves very much; but the poor Frogs in the pond were trembling with fear. At last one of the Frogs, the oldest and bravest, put his head out of the water, and said, "Oh, please, dear children, stop your cruel play!
In a spell of dry weather, when the Birds could find very little to drink, a thirsty Crow found a pitcher with a little water in it. Our story for this Buck family begins with the marriage of Davida€™s parents, Thomas Buck and Elizabeth Scott, on 4 May 1738 in Glastonbury, Connecticut [see Glastonbury Vital Records by Barbour, available on the Internet.] The record of this marriage does not provide any additional information about the ancestry of Thomas Buck, but it does tell us that Elizabeth was the daughter of Thomas Scott. We know that these were the parents of our David Buck as his daughter, Elizabeth Buck Garlick (who we will frequently refer to as a€?EBGa€?) left a record in 1841 (in Nauvoo, Illinois) and again in 1872 (in Salt Lake City in the Endowment House).
Following their wedding in 1738, Thomas and Elizabeth Buck completely disappear from the local records. Fortunately their grand-daughter, Elizabeth Buck Garlick (EBG), lived long enough to be listed in the 1880 US Federal census for Springville, Utah. The birth-dates are unknown for several of these children, but since there was such a large gap between Thomas, Jr.
There was also a John Buck and a Joseph Buck who were closely associated with this family in Bedford County, but we have no document that establishes their relationship to the rest of this family. With all of the above as foundation for our story we will now present the documented history for our David Buck, Sr. The very first item we can find for our Bucks in Bedford County is in the 1775 tax list where a Thomas Buck was listed as paying 7 pounds, 6, as a resident of Colerain Township in Bedford Co., PA.
In the next yeara€™s tax recorda€”1776, we again find Thomas Buck, along with Jonathan Buck listed in Colerain Township of Bedford County. We have no tax records for 1777 & 1778, but in 1779 there was no Thomas Buck in Colerain Township. In 1780 we still find David Buck and John Buck paying taxes in Colerain Twp., and Davida€™s brother, Thomas Buck, Jr. The 6th Company, 1st Battalion of the PA militia was formed from the men of Providence Township in 1781, with George Enslow as Captain.
We do not know any details about Davida€™s military service but we do know there were many British inspired Indian-attacks within the county where settlers were killed and their homes burned.
By 1784 both David and Jonathan were located in Providence Township in Bedford Co., PA, and their brother Thomas was still in Hopewell, just a few miles north of Providence.
In 1789 Jonathan Buck sold his land in Providence Township and moved to the western side of the County, and from there (in 1793) he moved to Tennessee.
Note that most of the purchases above naming Thomas Buck were surely for the Captain Thomas Buck of Hopewell Twp., the brother of our David, Sr. David Buck, land deeded to him by Benjamin Ferguson and Zilah, his wife, for 45 pounds, that tract of land called Oxford Situate on the waters of Brush Creek also running by the land of Thomas Buck, Esq.
Thomas Buck and wife Margaret, sold to George Myers, land in Providence Twp being rented by William Conners for $2,400., on Brush Creek joining John Allisona€™s survey and running by David Bucka€™s property. This is a very interesting entry as we know that the Captain, Thomas Buck (brother of our David Sr.) was the man who was married to Mrs. Before we continue with the Buck family, we need to take a sideways step to briefly discuss the Cashman family, as that brings in the wife of David Buck, Sr. This family lived for many years in Berks County, PA, and then in York Co., PA, before moving to Washington County, Maryland in 1777. We should mention here that by this time the old Germanic family name had seen a number of changes that show up in many of the documents. Martina€™s oldest daughter, Catherine grew up in Pennsylvania and moved with her parents to Maryland when she was about 25 years old. David returned to his farm in Bedford County, PA with a new wife and four little step-children. While we are talking about close family members showing up in the temple records, there is one more that we should discuss at this point. The 1800 federal census is also a bit bewildering (but then census records are not known for their accuracy). This entry make sense if there was only one Bumgardner boy still living in Davida€™s home and if he was between the ages of 10-16a€”which would be about right.
In 1808 there was another tax list which shows David with 247 acres in Providence Twp, with 1 horse and 2 cows. His oldest son, Thomas, was already married and had been out of the house for about seven years before his father died. We dona€™t know how long Catherine Cashman Buck lived after the death of her husband but it appears she was still alive during the 1820 census as discussed above. The oldest child of our David Buck and Catherine Cashman (after her Bumgardner children) was Thomas Buck.
Very nearby lived the family of Michael Blue, who had a daughter, Elizabeth Blue, born 30 March 1788, in Providence Twp, making her just about two years older than Thomas. Shortly after the birth of their youngest child the family moved to Van Buren, Pulaski Co., Indiana, where they were living in the 1860 census, and where Thomas died on 27 Feb.
A number of local residents joined the Church at that same time which resulted in a backlash of hard feelings and persecution ensued, inducing many of them to sell their homes and move to Nauvoo, Illinois where the a€?Saintsa€? were gathering. With the other Saints, the Garlicks were forced to evacuate Nauvoo in 1846 and make their way across the state of Iowa to Council Bluffs. We are not sure when Susannah was born, but her fathera€™s will makes it clear that she was younger than Elizabeth (who was born in 1795a€”according to her own record) and older than Mary, who was born in 1800 (as found in several census records).
50 years old (making him about 12-13 years younger than Susannah, and his wife, a€?Susana€? was five years younger than Solomona€”born about 1815. Whether Susannah died young, or married and changed her last name, is unknown to us at this time. With a large gap between the first two children there could, and probably were, other children unknown to us at this time. In the 1870 census we do find David Jr.a€™s daughter, Catherine Buck living in Providence with her Aunt Mary Buck (both of her parents had died prior to that year).
After the birth of this last child the family moved to Columbus, Franklin Co., Ohio where we find them in the 1880 censusa€”except for their son, George, who would have been 13 in that census but does not appear with the family at that time. This Jonathan Buck remained close to his extended family and traveled back and forth between Pennsylvania and Ohio on various occasions. Note that this particular record does not say that Sarah was the daughter of Mary, but we learn that later on. In the Ancestral File (LDS FHC) Mary has been sealed numerous times to a man by the name of Amos Jones. In the 1860 census, we find Saraha€™s mother, Mary Buck, living with her son-in-law and his two little girlsa€”Marya€™s grand-daughters. Within the next decade (per the 1870 census) Jacob Foore had remarried and begun an additional family, so Mary moved into a home of her own and also took in her niece, Catherine Buck, with her little daughter, Amanda, who we have discussed above. This concludes the presentation of the documented life of David Buck, Sr., his wife, Catherine Cashman, and their family.
Aunt Mary Buck is well, Catharine too, neather one of them lives with me now since last spring. Yours truly, write to me again and tell me all the news and I will give you all the news then. It is with pleasure that I drop you a few lines to inform you we are all well at the present time and hope and trust these few lines may find you the same.
I must tell you where we live, we live near Gapsvill and I thought I would write a few lines to you all. Times is very dull here now all though there is plenty of everything but fruit, there is none at tale, only what is shipped here.
I can't tell how Aunt or Catharine is gitting along for I have not had a letter from either one for five months or more, I can't tell why it is as I have written to both of them and got no answer. One of my boys married a girl here and they have gone to keeping house here, so if my letter does not come to hand in time he can lift it and remail. I am boarding, I don't keep house anymore and I received your picture and I thought I had thanked you for it in my letter long ago, if not I am very much obliged to you for it.
I did not see Dasey Garlick when I was East, she was away from home the day I went to see her and I had so many places t go I did not get around again.
I seen Telitha (Catharine) Garlick two but only to speak to her as met her on the road one day she is married to Wesley Clark, one of Elias Clark's boys. It appears that there is going to be plenty work to do this summer, lots of large buildings to go up this summer.

Answer: A Yes, the great God of heaven wrote the Ten Commandments on tables of stone with His own finger. Answer: A Because the Ten Commandment law is the standard by which God examines people in the heavenly judgment. Answer: A Christ not only pardons repentant sinners, but He restores in them the image of God. Answer: A The devil hates the people who uphold God's law because the law is the pattern of right living.
15.A A I believe a Christian must obey God's Ten Commandments, and I am asking Jesus to help me bring my life into harmony with them. No, the Ten Commandments hang from these two commands like our 10 fingers hang from our two hands. He could see his stall at the foot of the mountain, and to him the quickest way down seemed to be over the edge of the nearest cliff.
Though the task they had to do was very light compared with that of the Oxen, they creaked and groaned at every turn.
A timid little Mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her fright and haste to get away, ran across the Lion's nose.
So now, though he had not seen anything that even looked like a Wolf, he ran toward the village shouting at the top of his voice, "Wolf!
But when they got there they found the Boy doubled up with laughter at the trick he had played on them. Wolf!" But though the Villagers heard the cry, they did not run to help him as they had before.
But the party ended dismally with all the birds entangled in the meshes of the Farmer's net.
He very quickly captured the porker, which squealed at the top of its voice the moment the Shepherd laid his hands on it.
They had so much freedom that it had spoiled them, and they did nothing but sit around croaking in a bored manner and wishing for a government that could entertain them with the pomp and display of royalty, and rule them in a way to make them know they were being ruled.
The Frogs hid themselves among the reeds and grasses, thinking the new king to be some fearful giant.
Then after sundown, when the rosy light fades from the sky and the shadows rise slowly through the wood, out she comes ruffling and blinking from the old hollow tree.
One warm summer afternoon as she dozed away in her den in the old oak tree, a Grasshopper nearby began a joyous but very raspy song. Besides, her eyes were not sharp enough by day to permit her to punish the Grasshopper as he deserved.


Up he jumped to the Owl's den, but as soon as he was near enough so the old Owl could see him clearly, she pounced upon him and ate him up.
As he ran, the setting sun cast his shadow far out on the ground, and it looked as if the wolf were a hundred times bigger than he really was.
When the wind blew, the great Oak stood proudly upright with its hundred arms uplifted to the sky. The Boys amused themselves by throwing stones into the pond so as to make them skip on top of the water. But the pitcher was high and had a narrow neck, and no matter how he tried, the Crow could not reach the water. 1787 a€“ Thomas Buck applied for 400 acres including an improvement (house or barn) on the south side of Raystown Branch of the Juniata River on both sides of Brush Creek, adjoining Alisona€™s Survey, in Providence.
1789 a€“ Thomas Buck applied for 100 acres on the southeast side of Warrior Ridge, adjoining a survey of James Hunter on the north and by a survey of Barnard Dougherty esq.
And since the times have got so hard in the West I am glad I did not go, but I will come and see you all yet if all goes right but I can't say when. John Buck told me I could write a piece in his letter and I am very thankful to write with him as we have not your address.
I would have answered before now but was still thinking of being closer to you before this time but am about fixing to move back again to the old home place in Pennsylvania. I have had work all winter in a wholesale house where it is heated with gas, as warm as wood care. It's absolutely true that violating any part of God's law always brings negative consequences.
As a guide for happy, abundant living.a€?God created us to enjoy happiness, peace, long life, contentment, accomplishment, and all the other great blessings for which our hearts long.
Jesus specifically asserted that He did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill (or keep) it. Like a 6-year-old boy who made his own ruler, measured himself, and told his mother that he was 12 feet tall, our own standards are never safe.
As repentant sinners come to Jesus, He restores in them the image of God, bringing them into harmony with His law through the power of His indwelling presence.
And if you decide to follow the pattern outlined in God's law, you will feel the devil's wrath upon you at once and with all fury. All of this ceremony and ritual foreshadowed the cross and ended at Christ's death, as God had intended. As a guide for happy, abundant living.God created us to enjoy happiness, peace, long life, contentment, accomplishment, and all the other great blessings for which our hearts long. Just as he was about to leap over, his master caught him by the tail and tried to pull him back, but the stubborn Ass would not yield and pulled with all his might. The poor Oxen, pulling with all their might to draw the wagon through the deep mud, had their ears filled with the loud complaining of the Wheels.
But before he left he begged the Bull's pardon for having used his horn for a resting place.
Out popped the old Owl's head from the opening in the tree that served her both for door and for window. The wind redoubled in fury, and all at once the great tree fell, torn up by the roots, and lay among the pitying Reeds. With each pebble the water rose a little higher until at last it was near enough so he could drink.
The reason is that the man that was to buy my farm, backed out and I had made sale on the 27th day of March and sold everything to come and then after that man backed out I was to sell to another man and his wife died just two days before the time was for us to start and that knocked me all wrong all that I had and the balance of the company before I could rent again. My wife has been sick nearly ever since we have been in Ohio and is not sadis ficte [sic satisfied] to go any farther west and she now has the agure [ague] and two of my children has got it and I have concluded to take them where the Agure seldom comes any more, that is in Pennsylvania where they was born. The themometer was at one time 14 degrees below zero, that was perty cold, but they have had two feet of snow on the level back at our old home place this winter. As crime overruns our cities, doesn't it make sense that for peace and safety we need to obey the laws of the land? It is impossible to commit a sin that is not condemned by at least one of God's Ten Commandments.
God's law is the road map that points out the right paths to follow in order to find this true, supreme happiness. If the law could have been changed, God would have immediately made that change when Adam and Eve sinned instead of sending His Son to die in the sinner's behalf to pay the penalty of the broken law. Instead of doing away with the law, Jesus magnified it (Isaiah 42:21) as the perfect guide for right living. The Ten Commandment law is the guide we must use in finding our way to God and holy living. I cannot know whether I am a sinner unless I look carefully into the perfect standard--God's law-mirror. Thus He redeemed all from the curse of the law (death) and in its place provided eternal life. Love to God makes keeping the first four commandments (which concern God) a pleasure, and love toward our neighbour makes keeping the last six (which concern our neighbour) a joy.
To lead men to Christ--where they find righteousness--is the goal, purpose, or end of the law.
The Bible speaks of an evil conscience, a defiled conscience, and a seared conscience--none of which is safe. Running to one of the great ropes that bound him, she gnawed it until it parted, and soon the Lion was free.
But in spite of its squeals and struggles to escape, the Shepherd tucked his prize under his arm and started off to the butcher's in the market place. In a short time the younger Frogs were using him for a diving platform, while the older Frogs made him a meeting place, where they complained loudly to Jupiter about the government.
In mournful croaks they begged Jupiter to take away the cruel tyrant before they should all be destroyed.
Rat walked alonga€”he kept mostly to the ditcha€”he noticed a great commotion up the road, and soon a grand procession came in view. Buck a visit now, so must bring these few lines to a close by asking you to please write soon as this reaches you.
Well, this same principle applies with God's law - the Ten Commandments - in our own lives too! But this was impossible, because the commandments are not laws in the sense of rules or regulations that have been enacted.
If I ignore even one of the commandments, I am neglecting part of the divine pattern, or blueprint.
Salvation comes only through grace, as a free gift from Jesus Christ, and we receive this gift by faith, not by works. Millions who have cast out devils, prophesied, and done many wonderful works in Jesus' name will be lost (Matthew 7:21-23) because they did not bother to check their lives with His great law-pattern.
God could not change His law, but He made a blessed provision through Jesus to change the sinner so he can measure up to that law. It forgives him, but it does not give him freedom to break one single law on the statute books.
It regulated the priesthood, sacrifices, rituals, meat and drink offerings, etc., all of which foreshadowed the cross. But it is shocking and astounding to hear religious leaders denying the binding claims of the Ten Commandments while at the same time upholding the traditions of men. Love fulfills the law by taking away the drudgery and by making law-keeping a delight (Psalms 40:8). The only possible way for a person to know if he is sinning is for him to carefully check his life by the mirror of God's law.
1843, David Garlick also passed away at the age of 63 and was buried in the old Pioneer Cemetery on the SE corner of that city. Corn up here, the folks that has corn is just pulling the ears off leaving the foder so that stops the work from off the farms hands so there is no work to do.
William is clerking in a grocery store and drives a delivery wagon for the store part of his time.

To protect me from danger and tragedy.a€?God's law is like a strong cage at the zoo, which protects us from fierce, destructive animals. They are revealed principles of God's holy character that will always be true as long as God exists.a€?a€?Notice on the chart below that God and His law have the same characteristics.
God's law could not be involved here, for Paul spoke of it as holy, just, and good many years after the cross (Romans 7:7, 12). Under the Holy Spirit's ministration, through Christ, the law is written upon the heart (Hebrews 8:10).
To protect me from danger and tragedy.God's law is like a strong cage at the zoo, which protects us from fierce, destructive animals. They are revealed principles of God's holy character that will always be true as long as God exists.Notice on the chart below that God and His law have the same characteristics. Since so much is at stake, you should take a few minutes to seriously consider your responsibility.
It protects us from impurity, falsehood, murder, idolatry, theft, and many other evils that destroy life, peace, and happiness. The Bible says that when we knowingly break any command of God, we are sinning (James 4:17), because we have refused His will for us. A rule posted on a school bulletin board becomes effective only when it enters a student's heart.
He is co-author with Mamie Till-Mobley of her Death of Innocence: The Story of the Hate Crime That Changed America, He points out that, in addition to being the 47th anniversary of the Rev. The Ten Commandment law is God's character in written form--written so we can comprehend it. Christ's ministration of the law is effective because He transfers the law to the heart of the Christian. Garlick was then baptized for John and Jacob Bumgardner and the record calls him a a€?half nephewa€? of those two men. It is folly for this undisciplined generation to presume that it can break the laws of the living God with impunity.
Then keeping the law becomes a delight and a joyful way of living because the Christian has true love for both God and man. Special Note: The eternal principles of God's law are written deep in every person's nature by the God who created us. Jesus came to show us what the law (which is the pattern for holy living) looked like when made up in human form. This means, of course, that you cannot find true peace unless you are willing to live in harmony with your inner nature, upon which God has written these principles. Fifteen of the crew were killed instantly, but the 16th crew member, Ken Cantrell, survived.

That was so long ago that the small schools at Orr High School, whose LSC signed on as original plaintiffs, have been closed again and reopened under the auspices of AUSL (for more about AUSL, read the latest here).
It was in this kind of environment in Huntsville, Alabama, that I was raised, without knowing the Lord Jesus Christ. Although I was one of the worst sinners, I had respect for my grandfather and the Baptist church. I then took out and threw away my loaded dice from yet another pocket and removed my marked playing cards from still another pocket.

All of the rest of the crew were out to get candy bars, coffee, cigarettes, refreshments, etc.
The On the Issues site provides a list of statements by Kirk on education and his education-related votes as a congressman.
It suggests that he is a moderate on social issues such as school prayer and green schools. Kirk got into some trouble earlier this year when he claimed that he's influenced by his experience as a teacher, which turned out to consist of a year at a private high school in London and another as a teacher aide at a church run nursery school. There's a third candidate who deserves some attention, too -- LeAlan Jones, the Green Party candidate. I remember him well when, as a 13-year-old, he and a friend reported on life in the Chicago projects for National Public Radio. If many of the boys, who had just returned a few seconds earlier, had stayed away for just a moment longer, they would not have been engulfed in the a€?flames of deatha€™. Fire!a€?

Senator, and will have the responsibility to make critical decisions about education along with every other issue before Congress. With horror I saw all 15 of my Crew Mates swallowed up in sudden death.A Joe and Don were the furthest away from the only door in the room when the explosion occurred and Don fell to the floor with Joe Carnes. Rick has been a staunch advocate for public school children and families, and for Local School Councils.
He would not come to church and refused to accept Christ.A Joe was sitting next to me at the time of the explosion. His head, shrunken so small appeared as a mummy dwarf - others likewise, as I watched their bodies bake to a crisp.
A I reached over to where Joe had been sitting and placed him on my left arm and partly on my shoulder but his flesh fell from his bones as I held him in my arms.It was not long before I could hear the frying of the flesh from the bodies of my buddies. We know that too many of them don't. Even on a traditional calendar, non-air conditioned schools can be ovens, places where it's too hot to learn and too unhealthy to stay. It just did not seem possible that I could be alive in the Furnace of Fire and my buddies being killed. As the flames of death engulfed my buddies one by one, it seemed that I had supernatural eyesight when I could look through the Flames and see all 15 of my buddies go down in the flames.A In front of my eyes I saw all 15 of the crewmen die. I did not understand the nature of the power with which my beloved Jesus had equipped my body. First of all, it was almost unbelievable that the fire was real, because I could not feel the heat at all, although the flames totally covered me from every corner. I therefore did not understand how the fire could injure my colleagues to such an extent that they burned in front of my eyes.
But Jesus was so close, and I felt the power of the Holy Spirit so strongly, that this supernatural power of the Holy Spirit prevented me from being scared or injured.a€? A I then went to my other mate, Don Hatcher. CPS district offices?

If this had not been a supernatural event, I should not have been able to get away.A There was also another sailor to whom I was very close. CPS claims that its so-called year-round school schedule is better for students, but the proof of that is slight. Teachers should move their classes to municipal cooling centers until CPS does the right thing and upgrades every school so that children have a reasonable chance to learn. He sometimes fought with the other guys, and he also fought a lot with me before I became a Christian.
I spoke with Elbert of how Jesus could take away his lust for fighting, but he had shrugged this off. He even tried to fight the flames by thrashing wildly with his arms, but to no avail.A Thomas Moore was a man of average build whom I tried to win for Jesus.
He answered in passing that there was still time for him to make up his mind.A There was a huge wall of this fire at least 30 feet thick. That's not much time, and the appeal is supposed to go to the Chief Education Officer, a position that has had no person in it since Barbara Eason-Watkins left for Michigan City. Usually the appeals go to the Chief Area Officers. I was walking back and forth in the flames hardly realizing what to do, not feeling any discomfort or even heat of the fire in any manner. Good News was a modestly successful program; the church was in the very needy North of Howard area of Chicago and ran a well-attended food program. It seemed that the Truth of the Lord Jesus in the volume and the way and manner that I was practicing it had brought the Power of the Lord Jesus upon my body that I could not be hurt.A While in the fire I tried to pick up the bodies of some of my mates to see if there was any life in them. The down side we saw was a lack of interest in supporting the local school council at the nearby public school, which went through a traumatic time after the district refused to allow the LSC-appointed principal to serve. As I grabbed them, tugging at them, their baked and cooked flesh just fell off their bones.
Now as I was facing the hatch, the Voice of the Lord came forth and told me, "Go forward to the red hot hatchway. They claimed that the price of food was going down, so hungry people won't need so much. As House Finance Chair David Obey, who proposed the RTTT swap, said, "Well, isna€™t that nice. Grab the wrench, open the door and walk out." I got closer to the door and hesitated right in the Flaming Inferno.
A Again the Lord said, "Be not afraid, I am with you, you shall not die, open the door and walk out." I still held the corpse of Joe.
Why is it the responsibility of Chicago community colleges to spend $30 million a year to pick up lost math and reading skills?" Chico said. "I'm not saying that as a society we shouldn't be charged with doing that someplace. I walked out, much to the amazement and bewilderment of the Officers, Chaplain and spectators, and laid down the body of my buddy Joe.
But why is it placed in the lap of higher education?" (Sun-Times 8-8-10) I guess it just slipped Chico's mind that he is in large part responsible for the math and reading skills of these very students. A student who started preschool in 1995, when Chico was appointed president of the Chicago School Board by Mayor Daley, would have been in fourth grade -- when most of the fundamentals of reading and math should have been laid down -- when Chico left that position in 2001. My Officers ordered me not to but I disobeyed and returned against orders and retrieved, one by one, the corpses of my buddies and brought them out and laid them down. The extreme heat on the bodies and bringing them out into the cool air caused some of their eyeballs to pop out.
These books were written in 2004 and 2005 in response to many requests to help start PURE chapters around the country, and from folks who just wanted to know how to create a powerful parent organization. The heads and torsos were burnt so far beyond any normal expectation, that you could not even recognize them as human beings.A A sailor tried to follow me into the Catapult Room but his feet were burnt off and he was left with stumps. It explains why folks in power hate to fund schools adequately and demand "accountability" using methods that destroy rather than strengthen schools. The cover was off because at first I did not like the book and I had thrown the cover overboard.
The President's speech to the National Urban League was in large part a defense of these programs against the many concerns that have been raised about whether they are the most effective ways to reform U. Obama suggested in his speech that people who oppose his proposals may simply be a€?afraid of change.a€? A few days earlier, he threatened to veto any attempt to use even a small portion of funding for his controversial Race to the Top program to save thousands of teacher jobs.
Education Secretary Arne Duncan stonewalls critics of his department's demands for charter expansion who cite the research on the overall poor performance of charters nationwide; he offers the nonsensical excuse that he doesn't support charter schools, he only supports good charter schools. The metal, control valves and maneuver panel were totally melted.Everything had to be replaced. Today, columnist Leonard Pitts tells opponents of the President's plans to a€?lead, follow or get out of the way.a€? Perhaps the most important moment of the President's Urban League speech was his paraphrase of Dr. In a democracy, education reform cannot be defined only by legislators, politicians, and corporate and media leaders. Pitts' piece repeats much of the empty, nonsensical rhetoric we just heard in the president's and Duncan's recent speeches to the National Urban League, speeches that were in large part responses to the powerful opposition that has been raised against RTTT and the proposed School Improvement Grant program by civil rights, community, parent and teacher groups. For today's  Public School Action Tuesday, why not respond to Pitts by leaving a comment after his article here, or write to a newspaper or comment on a blog of your choice opposing RTTT programs such as test-based teacher firing, school closures, and expanded charter schools, and in support of fair, research-based teacher evaluation or other sound education reforms?
I tried to stop him outside the door but came too close to the entrance of the room and got burned and had to be treated.
He was like a superman, though he became exhausted in his exertion of carrying out the bodies.
I saw with my own eyes a sick boy stand upA healed when Cantrella€™s shadow got close to him.
A It was approximately 11:00pm on the 6th of August, 1953 - the night before the explosion. One notorious example was when Mayor Daley's favorite "superstar" principal, Curie High School's former head Jerrylyn Jones, handed out folders with copies of petitions demanding that the LSC renew her contract, instead of the budget and school improvement plan information the LSC had requested as part of her annual evaluation.Other principals refuse to give documents to individual LSC members, and insist on a vote of the full LSC before they provide information, another ridiculous excuse.I recommend that LSC members download and file this article - you may need it!
And keep the phone and address of the Attorney General's Public Access Counselor handy - they have become a great resource for LSCs. The web site also offers free online training in the Freedom of Information Act and the Open Meetings Act, which would be a good choice for your LSC lessons 7-8- or 9.
A I had read about light shining from a man in the Bible, a prophet that had fasted for 40 days. The dread Status-Quo is on the loose! Both Education Secretary Arne Duncan and President Obama are on the defensive this week about their education plans after a group of civil rights organizations challenged the basic elements of the administration's Race to the Top and Blueprint for Reform plans, adding a powerful voice to the increasingly loud complaints coming from other sectors across the nation about the direction Duncan and Obama are trying to take public education.

The internet gives us so many new opportunities for reaching people with our message and our perspective. That's what it's like to be a CPS principal these days in terms of trying to figure out how to lead your school in the coming year. "I'm growing more concerned about the planned rise in 'combined-grades' [not to be confused with multiage or ungraded] classrooms, due to the teacher layoffs and increased class sizes.
You wind up scrambling the days before school opens, and the week the students return, just to figure out who's who and 'where' they are in terms of their next learning steps, based upon their test scores from spring (=old data, let's face it) plus your expert judgment of children's learning needs. THEN you have to scramble to quickly sort 'em all out into their learning groups so that by Week 5 you can administer the required District curriculum-based tests (half of which you'll now have to create from the new curriculum you're teaching, due to the other grade-level's children in your room). I fear not a whole lot of learning--through no fault of the teacher or the kids or the parents. "I also fear this will be the proverbial 'final straw' on teachers' backs--and we'll lose some fine folks in our system." What can we do? Join the CTU for a community summit on the CPS budget, Saturday, July 24, from 11 am to 12:30 pm at Ariel School, 1119 East 46th Street. Anthony House yesterday, opining that a field trip would have gone a long way toward improving my sense of local history. Not so surprising is that the Frederick Douglass museum, just down the block, is still very much a work in progress.Anyway, I loved the tour and especially loved the sculpture, in a little park midway between the Anthony house and the struggling Douglas Center, depicting Susan B.
This means, he said, "notification, outreach, public input, and honest, open discussion about the right option for each community." Unfortunately, Duncan's track record in Chicago makes us skeptical that this is anything more than empty rhetoric. His efforts to "involve the community" in turnrounds here meant that perfunctory hearings were held where hundreds turned out to offer powerful testimony about a school's strengths along with thoughtful, research-based suggestions about how to support and improve the existing school, yet Arne Duncan ignored it all and shut the schools down. This means that Arne Duncan must begin really listening to parents, and the only way we will know that he is actually hearing us is when he begins to modify the RTTT and ESEA proposals that parents so strongly oppose and replace them with solid, proven programs that parents want. Education Secretary Arne Duncan for changing this federal education law.The signers and hundreds of other parents sent this letter to their congressional representatives.
While many are saying that a revised (reauthorized) ESEA is unlikely to be voted on before the fall elections, revised language is being hammered out in committee right now, and it may be too make meaningful changes later on in the process.
Here are a couple of things that many in Congress still seem unaware of:Parents, students and community members join teachers across the nation in opposing the major elements of Race to the TopCharter schools are not working as hyped, and in fact the majority are not performing as well as regular public schools. Durbin is one of thirteen senators who recently wrote a letter to Senate Appropriations Committee chair Sen. Daniel Inouye opposing this bill, which was formulated by the chair of the House Education committee, Rep. Leonie offers a thorough analysis of the damage and dishonesty of the Gates Foundation's incursion into public school policy making.
Urban Prep Charter School still has a 100% college-going rate with ALL 95 graduating seniors going to college!Problem is, for the past few weeks, the orgy of happy-weepy media reports about the Urban Prep Miracle was that all 107 graduating seniors were going to college (see, for example, People Magazine, Good Morning America, "Urban Prep Named Person of the Week on ABC World News).  So, since their first self-promotional blitz, they've lost 12 students (the Sun-Times suggests they "transferred") ? This yields an overall school graduation rate of 64%, or nearly 6 points lower than the average district rate of 69.8%.
Yet no one is "socially promoted" because no one moves until they are ready. And in these tough economic times, doesn't it make a lot more sense to stop doing something that is expensive and doesn't work -- flunking students -- and start doing something that actually helps them? A new documentary, Waiting for Superman, will soon be released and we are working on getting Examiners free, possibly sneak preview access, to this film.
Wea€™d like you to participate in screening the film and covering the critical education issues it addresses. Wea€™ll also be promoting content related to the film, profiling profound teachers making a difference.
We know that these schools push out lower-performing students and refuse to even admit many special education or limited English-speaking students.
And, overall, research shows that charter and other corporate-run schools are doing a worse job than traditional neighborhood schools. In fact, one of Arne's greatest assets is his ability to lie with a pleasant, non-threatening smile on his face. And that's a problem because, if Congress believes his lies, they will pass his ideas into law.
Now as I was facing the hatch, the Voice of the Lord came forth and told me, "Go forward to the red hot hatchway. It's time to tell the truth about Arne Duncan, what he's done here in Chicago, and what he's trying to do to our children's education. However, we strongly disagree with your opposition to paying for this initiative with funds previously allocated for Race To the Top (RTTT) strategies, teacher pay-for-performance programs, and charter school expansion.
While you characterize these strategies as a€?sweeping reforms,a€? we believe that they are unproven, reckless, wasteful experiments which put our most vulnerable children at risk.
However, we strongly disagree with your opposition to paying for this initiative with funds previously allocated for Race To the Top (RTTT) strategies, teacher pay-for-performance programs, and charter school expansion.
You call these programs a€?vital,a€? a€?bold,a€? and a€?critical reform efforts.a€? We see the Obey amendment as a win-win situation.
