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.

SEN. DAN PATRICK REQUESTS TAG OPINION: COMMON CORE VS. HB 462 - 12.29.13

http://www.educationviews.org/common-core-hb-462-sen-dan-patrick-files-offic ial-tag-request

Subject: "Sen. Dan Patrick Requests TAG Opinion on Common Core Standards vs. HB 462"

Requested by Sen. Dan Patrick on 12.20.13 - Accepted by Texas Attorney General on 12.23.13 -

Sen. Dan Patrick's official request to the Texas Attorney General:

Re: Request for an Attorney General Opinion to determine whether Texas' school districts violate the law [HB 462 passed by the 83rd Legislative Session] by using Common Core to teach state standards.

Excerpts from Sen. Dan Patrick's request:

HB 462, which is now law, prohibits the State Board of Education from adopting national

curriculum standards developed by the Common Core State Standards Initiative to comply with a duty imposed under statutory provisions relating to courses of study in the public school curriculum and student advancement. It also prohibits a school district from using Common Core State Standards to comply with the requirement to provide instruction in the essential knowledge and skills [TEKS] at appropriate grade levels, and it prohibits a school district or open-enrollment charter school from being required to offer any aspect of a Common Core State Standards curriculum.

Finally, the law prohibits the Texas Education Agency from adopting or developing a statewide standardized test based on Common Core State Standards. However, certain school districts within Texas are currently using Common Core to teach the Texas state standards.

Accordingly, I submit to your office the following question in request of an Attorney General Opinion:

Does a school district using Common Core in any way to teach state standards [TEKS] violate the law?
