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.

Tommy Bice Press Conference--Debunk Common Core and How Citizens and Legislators Can Have A Win Win Situation Like Texas

The Press Conference today with Alabama State Superintendent Tommy Bice sounded like a laundry list of all that we need to hear to calm fears about Common Core Standards.  Only problem is Common Core's basis for implemenation is a lie.  The much touted tested and internationally benchmarked Common Core Standards when held up to the light of truth are very sadly based on hocus pocus.  The facts are Alabama State Board of Ed along with many states because of desperation for money overlooked the fine line of truth that the standards of what were going to be taught their students were not even published when they chained their states education systems to it.  The applications for RTT were signed by Alabama's Governor Riley on Jan 2010 along with then Superintendent Dr. Morton and the contact person was Tommy Bice.  The final draft of the standards was not 'til March 2010 and standards were published in June 2010.  Yet in Jan 2010 the signers had already agreed its full implemenation as part of the requirements to qualify for RTT.  The Tommy Bice guarantees are rather sad when he fails to remove us from the set of lies that led to us getting into Common Core Standards in the first place--these standards were "not tested or internationally benchmarked."  Something that when educators educate themselves on the truth, they would probably be the first to say no to it.   Very troubling for Alabama parents and children.  His talk about how they vetted it (after the fact we locked our state to it within two month without debate) is like a rubber stamp because parents were not notified amply specially when it involved loss of their input.  Most parents would never give up their parental input and that really should never have been considered by the State Board of Alabama as most parents would see that is unconstitutional.  Since they failed to do their job it is now the Senate's turn.  More parents know the truth and this will affect future leadership in Alabama.

Hear audio of Q & A after the Tommy Bice Press Conference that most parents have not heard.

Tommy Bice kept saying we were not a Race To The Top State but all that means is we didn't get the money but the shackles of Common Core Standards that they agreed to implement fully are still there.   And his continued promotion of the Common Core Standards which is awful as it was based on a lie in the first place (remember about the tested and internationally benchmarked) is understable considering the money already spent.  But even Georgia who has spent more is trying to get out for their children's sake.  Their finding that Seniors requirement readings are on today's 7th grade level and Math too confusing for even Accountant to figure elementary Math is too wrong to swallow.  They would rather admit their error and free their children to have standards that will indeed lift the minds of children vs dumb them down.  In the end they know it will lift their state.  It is incredible when you contrast it with Robert Scott the former Texas Commissioner of Ed's testimony full of common sense saying he could not sign his state on because the standards were not even written let alone pilot tested.  Wow so much common sense shows why Texas is the place where businesses flock to.  Yes, business can thrive without Common Core in spite of what the proponents of common core says.

Watch true leadership in this video and pray we get men that can stand in the gap for our children:

There were board members such as Stephanie Bell and Betty Peters who have a track record of sounding the alarm and we pray the Alabama Legislature would heed their warnings and help Alabama become free of the shackles of Common Core Standards. Again, our neighbors in Georgia are filling up with more groanings for parents--so hopefully we will wisen up and move on and adopt free standards such as those in Texas who is leading the nation in business + common sense--a great winning combination for all citizens and I daresay legislators too.

Here's video to help those who want to get unconfused about Common Core Standards!
