When Oklahoma contractors started work on Emerson High School they never expected to stumble across this. As they removed chalkboards, to make way for new whiteboards, they found doodles and lesson plans from 1917, as if frozen in time.
On one board was a wheel used to teach multiplication, a technique that Emerson High Principal, Sherry Kishore, says she has never seen in her life.
A spokesperson for the school distract says they are working with the city to preserve … Keep Reading!!!
Cary Reed, the father of a 7-year-old student, is raising concerns about the notes a 4th grade teacher passed to his daughter. His daughter was new to the school and had not really made many friends, so she sat alone at recess.

This fourth grade teacher was on the playground and had given up his lunch hour to play with the kids, which on the surface is commendable. But then she came home with a note from him that she
It’s here!! Back to School, or as some parents call it: the most wonderful time of the year. With school comes back to school shopping. For some, the list of essentials can be overwhelming. For others, back to school shopping is like Christmas in August. But it can also be a financial strain on many. School has always been a good excuse for a new fall wardrobe for kids.

I think it’s been a while for most of us, since that first day of school. Not saying we’re all old but…we’re all old.
Adrianna attached a GoPro to herself to share her first day of school with all of us and the video is adorable. The first tentative steps up onto that school bus, making her first friend, meeting her teachers; everything is so new. It’s so scary, yet exciting.
I’m a little annoyed though, I never got greeted … Keep Reading!!!

Enjoy your sick days – No stress about falling behind or extra homework to catch up. Especially since most homeschoolers work through the summer, those few sick days won’t even be a blip on the map. Relax and heal!

“Your Health Today” is an educational book which was a sex-ed publication given to 9th graders in Fremont, California, and voted in as part of their curriculum by the school board.
But parents are saying it’s too sexy. (Watch out 50 Shades of Grey…it looks like you have some competition.)
Some of the complaints:
Do you remember the 5-year-old that was suspended from school for having a mohawk? A similar situation is happening to another family in the US.
An Oklahoma father was told repeatedly by school officials of his 7-year-old daughter, Tiana’s charter school, that he would have to change her hair style because dreadlocks are seen as “unacceptable” and “distracting”.
Tiana’s father, Terrance Parker, happens to be a barber and took offense to the accusations of his child not looking presentable for … Keep Reading!!!
