Two organizations that strongly oppose the Common Core State Standards for education have graded the 2016 Republican presidential candidates on their efforts to combat the standards. In a report card released Wednesday, two presidential candidates received failing grades, while only two candidates received grades of an "A minus."
The Pulse 2016, a project run by American Principles in Action and Cornerstone Policy Research, have evaluated 15 of the GOP candidates on how they have responded to concerns about Common Core raised by parents and teachers throughout the country.
As the federal government has incentivized the Common Core set of standards by requiring states to adopt the standards in order to receive some of the $4.35 billion in "Race to the Top" education funding, many parents, local school officials and education experts have argued that the Common Core standards are inferior and takes control over curriculum decisions away from local school boards and administrators, and into the hands of centralized bureaucracies and large companies. more >>
A Virginia pastor and his wife who were stabbed multiple times while asleep in bed by a man the couple reportedly treated like a grandson, have made a full recovery and the pastor is back in the pulpit preaching at his church.
Shiloh Baptist Pastor Hugh Mayes and wife, Carol, were attacked in their sleep by 21-year-old Maxim Lloyd Chisholm, a troubled man they had previously ministered to at their church and even let live with them for some time. After stabbing the couple back in June, Chisholm made off with $800 and their blue Ford Escape, according to authorities who found the couple still alive.
"God's grace has been good," said Mayes in his a sermon at Shiloh Baptist Church last Sunday, according to a WRIC report. "He spared us. Because I was stabbed right above the heart and she was stabbed right at her jugular, and we both survived." more >>
RICHMOND, Va., — Thoursands of Americans protested outside Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the United States Saturday morning to speak out against the abortion giant that receives more than $500 million in taxpayer funding every year for its 700 clinics across the nation.

The protests follow the release of seven undercover Planned Parenthood videos by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress, which show Planned Parenthood employees discussing the sell of aborted babies' body parts. The eighth video, set to release next week, reportedly shows the abortion provider selling babies born alive in their abortion clinics. more >>
For many children living overseas, being able to play rugby with the pros is equivalent to playing with NFL athletes in the U.S. Playing professional rugby alongside your sports heroes is a dream that most will sadly never realize. One 4-year-old, however, got the ruby experience of a lifetime!
It all occurred at a charity game for all-star ex-players from New South Wales and Queensland in a match known as "Legends of League." This little boy somehow managed to get his way onto the field and instead of the players trying to get him off, they do something special — they give him an amazing moment of glory! All the players on the other team go along with it, and miss tackles as he's running past them. When he gets a little tired, one of them personally escorts him across the goal line for a moment of glory he'll never forget.
