For about one half of my professional life I was in the classroom teaching. For the other half it was administration which, by the way, involve quite a bit of teaching. While both of these experiences involved teaching, the venues were light years apart. The result of all of this, "I'm tired!"
Some will say, "teaching is teaching." Others will argue, "if you have the gift, teaching is never just teaching, it adjusts for every student, every venue."
Actually it's not that simple. Teaching, pedagogy if you will, is quite complex, shouldn't be taken lightly, and requires complete commitment and concentration. more >>
In Sunday's fifth episode of National Geographic's "The Story of God," actor Morgan Freeman continues his quest to find out why evil exists in the world.
"To understand why evil exists, we have to know where it comes from," Freeman says. "For Christianity, it could be the devil himself, or is evil something that comes from inside us?"
Growing up as a child in Mississippi, Freeman encountered his first experience with evil in the form of racism at a Greyhound bus station where white and black people were segregated and he was forced to enter through a door designated for "colored" people. Freeman explains that as a young boy, he was confused by the ordeal. more >>

The U.S. Department of Education published Friday a list of faith-based colleges and universities that requested and were granted a religious exemption from Title IX. LGBT activist groups have been calling on the government to publish the list as part of a shaming campaign called the "Shame List" to pressure Christian colleges to consent to their agenda.
The document reveals that an increasing number of colleges are seeking exemptions, and that evangelical Wheaton College is not on the list.
Come this fall, Liberty University, the world's largest Christian University and America's fifth largest university, will allow students who are 21 or older with concealed handgun permits from the state to keep their weapons inside their dorm rooms with permission from the school.
Liberty President Jerry Falwell told The News & Advance that the university's board of trustees gave him the green light last week to update the school's concealed-carry policy.
Recently I made a judgement call that is getting a lot of criticism from a number of other parents at school. My daughter received a text from a friend revealing she is buying drugs at school and my child showed the text to me. I know the parents of this child and the mom is a very difficult person to deal with. I decided to go directly to the principal at school and let him know about the situation. Now the parents are telling everyone I should have told them directly about the drugs and that I should not have involved school officials. They are angry with me and letting everyone know about it. They have their supporters and I feel bad about the whole thing. What's a parent to do?more >>
