If You Wouldn't Keep Running Them Out Of The Profession, Teachers Wouldn't Leave

Last month, State Superintendent Hofmeister (who referred to the recent Governor-requested, first ever audit of the OSDE as "yet another attack on public education") happily announced she had gifted Teach For America over four million dollars to fill empty teaching positions. What she NEGLECTED to say however, was major.

Oklahoma State Department of Education Promoting "Anti" Racist Propaganda and Risk Behavior Surveys Through SEL and Counseling Services



After taking a long walk around the Oklahoma State Department of Education on Labor Day, I found that our state's education department is simply chalk full of 'anti-racist', anti-HB1775 (the bill banning CRT) non-educational nonsense that includes invasive behavioral surveys. Here's what you need to know as a parent.

Masking For Money: How Oklahoma Public Schools Want To Subvert State And Local Authority For Federal Funds


Friday, August 27 (2021), I was sent a screen shot of a document from the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) that included masking 'guidance' which contradicted Oklahoma's SB658 (the bill to allow freedom of choice regarding student masking in all Oklahoma schools but private k-12) and was told that the OSDH had issued new/current (8/21) masking/quarantine guidelines to schools.

PARENTS! Use These Laws And Sample Letters To Exert Your Parental Rights In Public Schools


Today, there are numerous state school laws being violated by public schools. For example, for years schools have been using Common Core in classrooms though it was repealed from law and supposedly removed from Oklahoma State teaching standards in 2014/2015. Now it's the teaching of racism through Critical Theory, made illegal by HB1775 during the 2021 legislative session - as well as schools forcing students to wear masks though prohibited by SB658, also passed on behalf of parents this year.

Save Your Family - Save America

Why have you heard again and again that Conservatives must protect the Family?

Because the Communists know that destruction of the family leads to destruction of society.

This book is a must-read for EVERY liberty-minded American concerned about why the world around them appears to be falling apart before their eyes. There are reasons for the tyranny we're experiencing and once we know the cause of the disease, we can fight the disease.

Today - Especially If You're A Christian - You Should Be Educating Your Children At Home


Many years ago I had a conversation with a friend considering homeschooling her kids. She told me she wanted to keep them home, because, as a Christian, she was concerned about the anti-Christian messages her kids have brought home to her.

Lack Of Willingness To Accept The Ideals Of Parental Self-Governance Is Eroding Public Trust In Medical Professionals

August 8th, The Oklahoman published an opinion piece by Adam Cohen, (Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Interim President of the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation), written as a conversation with the Coronavirus.

Though a rhetorical device, it's clear this editorial was used as a way to blunt the scalpel the writer plunges into the heart of a large portion of Oklahoma's population by way of his thesis - that unvaccinated individuals are not only responsible for continued spread of the disease, but for propagation of disease variants as well.

Larry White, Executive Director Of The Oklahoma Metropolitan Library Commission Responds To Taxpayer Criticism Of Pride Month


Dr. Larry White, Executive Director of the Metropolitan Library System, responded to my recent criticism of the MLS' celebration of Pride Month sent via contact form at the MLS website, with a very long and what appeared to be 'canned' response.

I say 'canned' response because a friend who also sent an email via the contact form, received virtually the same email as I, though with a twist.  Attached to her email was the following photograph:

I copied and pasted the email in its entirety below.  Under each paragraph I have responded in red. I felt this important because I thought it might help people understand why using tax-supported programs to advance agendas like BLM, or LGBTQ is wrong.

ACTION OPPORTUNITY: Oklahoma Metropolitan Libraries Use Taxpayer Funds To Bring Us Pride Week With Drag Queen Story Hour


Recently, The Oklahoma Council for Public Affairs published an article about Oklahoma Metropolitan Libraries support of Pride Month, complete with 'virtual' Drag Queen Story Time.

Yes, it's true.  Here in Oklahoma.  

According to the MLS, "the Metropolitan Library System is committed to highlighting LGBTQ2S+ reading or listening recommendations and other resources, along with offering programs that amplify LGBTQ2S+ voices and stories".

Is Public Funding of Education Now Unconstitutional Based On Federal Discrimination Law? Bill Barr Thinks Possibly.


For years I've written about how public schools are very often indoctrinating children in ideals outside those prescribed in their homes.  I've warned parents for years to pay attention to what their children are learning in school and to attend school board meetings, yet until restrictions due to COVID-19 caused many students to stay home and learn on line, few were able.  When homework or books don't come home for view and the best you can get out of your kid about school is the following:

Mom, "How was school today?"

Kid, "Fine."

Mom, "What did you learn today?"

Kid, "Nothing much..."

How in the world do you find out exactly what is going on in your child's school?

Suggestion: Former Oklahoma State Senator Anthony Sykes For Oklahoma Attorney General

Oklahoma's Attorney General, Mike Hunter has resigned as of June 1st. 

Sadly, the Biden administration has made it their special job to overturn and undo as many conservative Executive Orders made from the former President’s desk they possibly can.

PLEASE HELP! SB131 Needs A Hearing NOW In The Senate Or Our Healthcare Could Be Based On Critical Race Theory!

 

As with so many things today - even in this 'red' state of Oklahoma - out-of-state interests and legislators who simply aren't conservatives have caused a problem for EVERYONE in the state.

The problem stems from the fact that out-of-state interests spent millions of dollars last June to BARELY pass State Question 802 which expanded Medicare in Oklahoma.

Unfortunately, the RFPs for the contracts for these services are FULL OF Critical Race Theory language that sidestep our abortion laws (that are much more stringent than the federal) AND out source SoonerCare services to out-of-state Managed Care Organizations.

Critical Race Theory is the Next Common Core For Oklahoma Students - But Much Worse

Critical Race Theory. What's that about and how could it be worse than Common Core for Oklahoma's students?

Good questions! 

Let's start with the first:

Critical Race Theory is an ideal developed from Marxist theory that essentially asks human beings to see the world through a lens that sees people as either oppressed or oppressors based on their race and identity. This gets even more complicated when attempting to determine how oppressed one is - a factor determined by something called intersectionality. For example, if we are comparing three individuals - a black woman, a white man and a gay, black woman - the gay black woman is the most oppressed and the white man is the most oppressive.
