Fields White To Harvest

 

 

Lord, I thought I knew you,

   but know the winds have changed.

Tossed away, will you find me?

   Can still , my heart be sustained?

Just me and you when things were new,

then the season's storms blew by.

   Did I forget to worship you?

 

Will you come, Lord Jesus to gather us- your sheep.

   For the days grow long and still,

If we watch and wait, will you hear us yet-

   Can we stand strong to do you will?

 

 The wheat has been blowing in that field,

   While the laborers are so few.

What then, now are we waiting for?

   Can hardened hearts become like new?

 

 Safely can we stay behind you,

   as we march with your trumpet sound?

Or- have we stayed and hid so long now,

   That our roots dry underground?

 

 I pray Lord that you will find me.

   I pray not to be ashamed.

I seek you when it's early Lord.

   I pray not to fall away.

 

So come Lord Jesus come quickly-

   The terrible day is at hand.

I pray we'll all be steadfast.

   So you may strengthen our spirits ,

as we stand.

Warning To Homeschoolers and Private Schools---Architect of Common Core Now Have Power To Prod SAT To Reflect Common Core

5.16.12 -- David Coleman, architect of Common Core Standards, has been chosen as the next president of the College Board (producer of SAT and Advanced Placement tests). I am very concerned about this cozy relationship that Coleman means to create between the Common Core Standards and the SAT/AP. 

 

Even people who send their children to private schools and/or homeschool them will be impacted by this decision to align the SAT/AP tests with the Common Core Standards.

 

The SAT/AP are generally tests that follow knowledge-based, academic knowledge – more aligned with Type #1 Philosophy of Education. 

 

The Common Core Standards are definitely an attempt to drive our public schools completely into Type #2 Philosophy of Education.

 

Type #1’s end goal is academic achievement. Type #2’s end goal is the indoctrination and manipulation of students’ minds.

 

For more clarity about these two terms, please read:

 

3.26.12 -- “Two Education Philosophies with Two Different Goals” -- by Donna Garner

http://libertylinked.com/posts/9703/2-education-philosophies-with/View.aspx 

 

 

========================

 

Excerpt from today’s EducationWeek article:

 

Robert Scott, the commissioner of education in Texas, who has known Mr. Coleman for more than a decade, described him as “one of the brightest minds out there, an absolute genius” in thinking about what skills and knowledge schoolchildren need to thrive in college and in good jobs. But the two men differ sharply on how to advance those changes; Texas pointedly opted out of the common standards because it objected to the use of federal incentives, such as Race to the Top dollars, to promote adoption.

Some education activists saw in Mr. Coleman’s appointment the risk of creating too much uniformity in curriculum and tests.
