Thomas Scheff and David Rosenhans, among other sociologists and psychologists, have explained to us how labeling hurts people. People tend to live down to the labels they are given. Nowhere is this more true than among children who are labeled “stupid” or “bad” in school when they are young.
I explain the science just a little, give you some stories of children that I have seen, and give you a great technique that overcomes labeling.
As promised (finally!) I unpack what people are saying about “school choice” i.e. vouchers. Is this a boon? Free government money? Government money for private Christians schools? For homeschoolers? Really?
So, in the first of 3 episodes, we begin to summarize the book Vouchers: Shekels with Shacklesfrom Frontline Ministries. You can find them at http://ChristEdu.Org/
This 50 page book includes a number of authors. In this episode, we will take the introduction and first 3 authors: Ray Moore, Diane Douglas & Richard Hawkins and Alex Newman.
Moore writes the introduction and this his own chapter: “Do No Harm.” Then Douglas and Hawkins write on “Vouchers:He Who Has the Gold Makes the Rules.” And then Alex Newman, whom we discovered so happily on www.FrankSpeech.com as a proponent of home education, writes the chapter, “UN Report” Use Tax Money to Control Private Education.” Look folks, when Pinkie & The Brain publish on the internet exactly how they are going to take down your freedom and enslave you, you must Thank the Lord and pay attention — rather than just sleep and hope for the best.
Here is the form to get the downloaded book from me, School Vouchers: Shekels to Shackles. It is my understanding that the pdf is to be shared and I would like to keep in touch. I will not avalanche you and I will not share your information with others.

Here Steve Turley comments on Jordan Peterson explaining the place and importance of the Bible. “It is not that the Bible is true; it is that the Bible is the pre-condition for the manifestation of Truth.” So, Prof. Peterson, argues based on a sociological epistemology, that the Bible is truer than true and the only basis for a society that is not tyrannous. Joe Rogan is silent, awestruck.
I immediately think of Vishal Mangalwadi’s *The Book that Made Your World.”
It is factual that the Bible is the foundation of all that is good, free,and prosperous in Western and especially English-speaking culture. It is true that the foundational story of the Exodus shows the way how a people can be without tyranny, and indeed, be a people.
Further, to date, in the history of the planet, it is the only story that offers this.
Given this, what extensions present themselves in terms of guidance for education? True education would be based on and filled with the Bible — or other sources can not be understood. Or evaluated. While we have a government education constructed to make activists at the expense of basic literacy and numeracy, it is no surprise that the education that was always intended to make moral leaders was also the foundation of literacy and numeracy.
Did you not notice that? Literacy to the dawn of history is carried in the Toledoth, the stories in early Genesis. Joseph rose to prominence in Eqypt, as a slave, because he could do accounting. Because his father, a wandering shepherd, taught his sons to ready and calculate.
This is an extraordinary conclusion in a day of decaying and bullying religious secularism, no where more mordant and bullying than in government education. Further, it is extraordinary because the assertion was arrived at through logical deduction and not the obscurantism of dobmatism or belief or personal subjectivism. Indeed, it uses what to date has been the most virulent thrust toward post-modernism and toward Marxism: sociological epistemology. Cogent, clear, rings with truth. Evidential… because it works.
