Middle School Suicides Double as Common Core Testing Intensifies

Did you happen to see this article by Steven Singer?  More importantly, did PARENTS see it?  Sure, school is hard. Kids complain.  If they really, really complain, parents go to the teachers.  Teachers reassure them. Principals and Superintendents reassure them.  After all, they're the "experts," not parents.  Kids are just "softer" than when we went to school.  Right?

Wrong.  Something is very, very wrong.   

"Here’s a high stakes testing statistic you won’t hear bandied about on the news.  The suicide rate among 10- to 14-year-olds doubled between 2007 and 2014 – the same period in which states have increasingly adopted Common Core standards and new, more rigorous high stakes tests.  For the first time, suicide surpassed car crashes as a leading cause of death for middle school children.  In 2014, the last year for which data was available, 425 middle schoolers nationwide took their own lives."   

In April 2017, the Arizona State Board of Education voted to give Arizona schools a grade of A-F, based on student AZMerit test scores. Members of the State Board of Education are "experts," too. Right?  

According to Jared Taylor, with his moral compass intact, voted against this travesty.  He stated:

The First Time I Had Sex, by Tina Marie Griffin

Tina Marie Griffin writes"I talk a lot about the first time I had sex—for a VERY important reason.  The first time I had sex was on my wedding night when I was 29 years and 51 weeks old…"

This is the kind of very important article that you don't read much anymore.  That's because Ms. Griffin's message is about being God-Centered, not Self-Centered.  It's about respecting her body and cherishing her virginity and giving it as a gift to only one person – her husband.

Wait for Me - Rebecca St. James

For young women (older women, too!) who want to separate the men from the boys....

God will bring the right person in His perfect timing. God wants you to trust Him and focus on serving Him now, so you’ll meet your best friend while you’re serving the Lord. How cool is that? And if you’ve already been sexually active, God forgives, forgets and that is NOT who you are as a person. Your past is not your identity. You can make better choices starting at this very moment."  Tina Marie Griffin

TEEN VOGUE Normalizes Sodomy for Young Girls and Shows Them How to do it

Teen Vogue is an online magazine that targets teenage girls.  It used to feature fashion, celebrities, and shopping.  Since 2015, it began including politics (aka "Trump hatred") and current affairs (transgenderism, deviant sex, anti-Christian, anti-God).  The print version reached over 1 million young people.  The online version, especially now that it has sensationalized the most depraved human activites, is snagging even more teenagers, even children as young as 11.  See Teen Vogue - Wikipedia

I normally would ignore a publication like this, not wanting to give it a shred of publicity.  However, parents need to know and understand the kind of information being peddled to their children via their tablets, iPads, Notebooks, Smartphones, etc.

It's OK to Kill a Baby in the Womb when.....

This video features the aftermath of abortion.  Abortion causes thousands of women to commit suicide every year. Their pain is denied by those who support the billion dollar abortion industry, so they suffer alone.  The Truth is that the suicide rate is significantly higher among women who have had an abortion compared to women in the general population, and even higher compared to women who gave birth.   (See below.)

Midway through this video, watch how many people change their minds about a "woman's right to choose," when the interviewer says: "Please finish this sentence. It's OK to kill a baby in the womb when....."

Diane Douglas Underwater; Frank Riggs Swimming to the Top

According to a recent Capitol Times Yellow Sheet Report titled “Underwater is a Bad Place to Be,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas is going to have an uphill battle to get reelected.  

A recent poll by GOP consultant Chris Baker shows incumbent Douglas with ratings of 15 percent favorability and a whopping 47 percent unfavorability.  Another 38 percent had no opinion. “I think Diane Douglas has probably reached the point of no return,” Baker told the Capitol Times reporter.

As stated in the article, “the poll surveyed 500 self-described likely voters (all of whom have voted in at least one of the last two general elections) from June 14-15, with a partisan breakdown of 35 percent Republicans, 31 percent Democrats and 33 percent independents. Of those 500 voters, 70 percent were contacted on landlines via autodial, while 30 percent were interviewed by live callers on their cell phones. The poll had a margin of error of plus-minus 4.9 percent.”

This is what happens when a novice takes office with no business or executive experience. 

Arizona needs a strong, tested and proven Superintendent with the right combination of executive experience, managerial skills, knowledge of education policies and practices, integrity, and judgment to lead our state's K-12 schools!  That person is Frank Riggs.
