Testimony of an English Teacher – Phonics Saves Students

I read and comment on the testimony of a high school English teacher. When he used the program Alpha Phonics for only 10 minutes a day with his students, he got a dramatic reduction in discipline problems, and a dramatic rise in retention and grades. In short, he was finally teaching students to read — students who had wanted to learn to read all of their school career. But the school, and the teachers, by policy had chosen not to teach them. To read.

Yes. Here his experience. Understand then, so very much.

Alpha Phonics appears to be a program by Samuel Blumenfeld, who, with Alex Newman wrote a book that this testimony is appended to. A review on that will be forthcoming.


Christian Book has Alpha Phonics in paper and audio form

The book *Crimes of the Educators* is widely available. Here it is in pdf.

The Sentinel Report by Alex Newman


Concluding out series on the hot topic of “school choice” actually meaning “vouchers.” Like so many other issues, the words used are used in order to deceive. Styled as educational freedom, this is an attempted takeover of all private education, even homeschooling, by the very government that ruined public education. The shekels come with shackels.

Heather Hall uses her principle approach to unpack the situation. Dr. Max Lyons suggests an alternative: congregations providing scholarships. And Keven Novak concludes the series with the warning that if we think this will be increased freedom, we need to think again.

This is only a taste of what they have to say. I strongly encourage you to get the full document: Vouchers: Shekels with Shackles.  It is available in pdf format to download right now if you sign up on our announcement list. Or, you may get it at the publishers: Front Line Ministries. Please get it and share it.

The Discussion at the State Capitol

I am seeing more discussion about this on social media and even with postcards coming to my home. Largely they appear to be the leftists being against it, charging that the conservatives just want more money for themselves, for private schools.  They argue that public money should not go to fund religion. Hmm. And then, I see politicians smiling broadly at how they are increasing freedom. That, in itself, should give you pause.

If you weren’t informed: rights come from God. Then we, as free people, agreed to let government have some duties, limited duties, to protect us, basically. Anytime a politician claims to give you rights, they are off the path of American political philosophy and are enslaving  you. If that was not taught and underlined in your elementary schooling, that in itself shows the degradation of education and the danger in our current society. You very much need to read this little compilation –please.
