The Current Status and Future of K-12 Online Education: US Case

1.Introduction

“Online learning is a disruption that cannot be stopped,” Joseph J. O’Brien, (Director of the Chester County Intermediate Unit)

Cyber Schools, digital schools, online schools, virtual schools, internet schools, and e-learning, no matter what it is called online education is a new phenomenon in education that is not fully understood. A new trend that is hard to comprehend by just reading or hearing about it. The investigator of this study did not solely rely on the literature and decided to visit a cyber charter school district and visit the homes of cyber charter school students to gather observational data for this study.

Get Out of My Class and Leave America

From TownHall.com, Mike Adams, 08/28/2015 –

Author’s Note: The following column is comprised of excerpts taken from my first lectures on the first day of classes this semester at UNC-Wilmington. I reproduced these remarks with the hope that they would be useful to other professors teaching at public universities all across America. Feel free to use this material if you already have tenure.

_______________

Welcome back to class, students! I am Mike Adams your criminology professor here at UNC-Wilmington. Before we get started with the course I need to address an issue that is causing problems here at UNCW and in higher education all across the country. I am talking about the growing minority of students who believe they have a right to be free from being offended. If we don’t reverse this dangerous trend in our society there will soon be a majority of young people who will need to walk around in plastic bubble suits to protect them in the event that they come into contact with a dissenting viewpoint. That mentality is unworthy of an American. It’s hardly worthy of a Frenchman.

Billions in New Bonds Should Not Escape Voter Approval

Although written about California, I think this article may interest you if you are a taxpayer. Should we learn from their mistakes…or repeat them?

I encourage you to read California’s Proposition 13.

Billions in New Bonds Should Not Escape Voter Approval

Former Speaker Willie Brown once said, “In the world of civic projects, the first budget is really just a down payment.” The strategy, he noted, was to start construction of a project quickly so it would be hard to stop once people learned of the real cost which, in many cases, could be many multiples of the initial price represented to citizens.

Constant cost overruns and a lack of accountability plague California’s infrastructure projects. Politicians casually throw “millions” and “billions” around like a game of monopoly, leaving hard-working families and future generations to pay the debt they so flippantly create.

Cuban Accountability

 From Accuracy in Media, by John Lowery

 

This column was originally published at http://www.aim.org

Whatever one thinks of President Barack Obama’s overtures to Cuba and the accompanying prisoner exchange, an important consideration in need of immediate attention is an accounting of our servicemen captured in the Vietnam War and imprisoned in Cuban-operated POW camps. Of utmost importance is an accounting of the 17 American airmen captured in North Vietnam and then taken to Cuba for medical experiments in torture techniques.

Election Contest Appeal Moves Forward

Thanks to our dedicated supporters, we have successfully
filed our final brief with the Third Court of Appeals

Laura

Computerized voting machines have been operating for over a decade and Texans don’t trust them–and now we know why.  Dr. Laura Pressley’s historic election contest has uncovered electronic voting machine corruption errors, security breaches, missing back up tapes and no ballot images exist for a legal recount.
Candidates all over Texas have known about these illegalities for over a decade and Pressley is the first to take the responsibility to address them in the Texas courts.

Do Election Officials Across Texas Routinely Violate Election Law

Are officials in the state of Texas in violation of election law? I believe after you examine these examples, you will be thoroughly convinced that state and county officials across the state are committing multiple violations of the Texas Election Code and the Texas Constitution.

Some say officials have known about these violations for years and instead of resolving serious issues, they stood silently and ignored glaring faults in the state’s computerized voting systems. Many of these issues may have altered the outcome of state and local elections.

Since the beginning of computerized voting in Texas, only one candidate, Dr. Laura Pressley, has come forward with information that cast doubt upon the entire system for choosing our elected officials. That should be alarming news to every voting Texan.

Does your vote really count?

The following was taken from Dr. Pressley’s website:
