Returning the Bible and Wisdom principles to our public school children under the 1st Amendment.  [ view in browser ]
Howdy Folks,  Merry Christmas   from HISWAYS USA, Inc.
Xmas Tree
        Here is our  Annual December eNewsLetter highlighting and emphasizing our  ministry to you and your local government school.  It is in the interest of the children's tender spirits that warrants a little pro-active preservation of their Christian liberties and discipleship.  To wit, everyone should know about the School Choice options of home schooling, etc. and very seriously consider whether this is the best option for both child and family.  These Hisways links can take you to some national home school contacts in your state and/or try alternatives like: "9. Start a School: Christian or Alternative. (or homeschool)." (file).
         The link above has some local and FL state home schooling organizations, resources and links like a link to Pinellas Parent Educators Association (PPEA) .  They have several FREE start up meetings; "Orientation for New Homeschooler's" around the county.  If you have sufficient parental interest at your church, club or business, they could provide a speaker(s) at no charge at your location.  If this notice does not allow sufficient time to implement your home school just proceed with gathering the info and research and plan for a mid term startup.   [ more i.e. recall: 2012-08-eNL.HomeSchool.html ] (file).

  1. Blaine Amendment shouldn't stop Education Savings Accounts | The Heritage Foundation By Lindsey Burke | Nov. 2015 | "Dismal."  "A train wreck."  That's how people have characterized the results of this year's National Assessment of Educational Progress. ... The NAEP assesses fourth- and eighth-graders' performance in reading and math ... This money can be used for tuition at a private school of choice, or it can be used to completely customize a child's education. ESA funds can pay for private tutors, online learning options, special education therapies and services, textbooks, curricula and Advanced Placement tests, among a variety of other education-related services and products. The customization opportunities are endless and represent a watershed moment for education in Nevada. ... the "Blaine Amendment" - originally established to blunt the growth of Catholic schooling. ... the Institute for Justice notes, the language does not apply to "publicly funded educational assistance programs like Nevada's ESA Program" and "does not constrain the private choices of private individuals." ... the Institute for Justice observes, just like charter and magnet schools, ESAs simply provide for additional education options on top of the existing public school system.
  2. An Open Education System for Individualized Learning in K-12 and Higher Education | The Heritage Foundation November 9, 2015 | By Lindsey Burke and Vance H. Fried |  Notions about how the American education system should function, from kindergarten to college, are changing.  The very idea of constructs such as grade levels, and a rigid division between high school and college, is being challenged.  The proliferation of online learning has created unprecedented access to a wide range of academic content, laying the groundwork for a competency-based education system and an individually tailored academic experience. 
  3. From Piecemeal to Portable: Transforming Title I into a Student-Centered Support System | The Heritage Foundation  September 28, 2015 | By Lindsey Burke | Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) has failed to meet its objective of improving in the most effective way possible the educational outcomes for children from disadvantaged families.  Title I programs involve funding complexities, administrative burdens, and legal restrictions that substantially reduce their usefulness.  The nearly $15 billion Title I program consists of a stream of convoluted and piecemeal formula grants that have little relationship to actual poverty.  ... Congress should replace the existing Title I program with a straightforward and effective program that allows states the flexibility to make Title I dollars "portable," so that ... families choose to use the money from the Education Savings Accounts to send their child to such a school, acceptance of those funds to educate the child does not bring the federal bureaucracy into the school.

  1. ESEA Reauthorization – Ramming Through a Bad Deal for America’s Children | Truth in American Education December 1, 2015 By Emmett McGroarty | The following is an open letter to members of Congress: Dear Member: A secretive, "smoke-filled room" process that excluded parents of millions of public schoolchildren and the vast majority of their elected representatives has resulted in revisions to the Senate and House ESEA reauthorization bills. The final version of the compromise bill (dubbed the Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA), released at 9:30 AM on November 30, is 1,061 pages long and confirms that ESSA must be defeated. ... More than 200 grassroots groups and experts across the nation have expressed their adamant opposition to any ESEA reauthorization based on the House and Senate bills. Nothing in the final bill lessens that opposition. Attached are comments about what the draft ESSA says on ...Currently, it is scheduled for December 2; .. clearly not sufficient.

Just another reason to love Rep. Debbie Mayfield! (copied from another email)  Debbie Mayfield will now be filing a joint resolution to amend the Florida Constitution that would change the Commissioner of Education post from an appointed position, to an elected one.  If Mayfield’s bill passes in the Florida legislature, it will then go to the Secretary of State, whose job it would be to word how the amendment reads on the 2016 ballot.  The amendment would install the Commissioner of Education position onto the Governor’s cabinet alongside the CFO, Attorney General and Commissioner of Agriculture.  The cabinet would then be tasked to serve as the acting Board of Education, which is currently appointed by the governor. If the constitutional amendment gets on the 2016 ballot, and is voted on and passes, the job of Commissioner of Education will then be placed on the 2018 ballot. ...Rep.

  4. Microsoft: Windows 10 Reports on Users; Can't Be Stopped Thursday, 05 November 2015 | Written by C. Mitchell Shaw | The Microsoft Services Agreement and its accompanying documents, to which one must agree before installing or using any Microsoft product or service, run roughly 40,000 words and would take 110 pages to print. Agreeing to these documents grants Microsoft the right to read, save, and share anything stored on or accessed using any computer running Microsoft Windows, as well as any computer using any Microsoft products or services. ... What this means is that users who "upgrade" to Windows 10 or who purchase a PC with Windows 10 preinstalled have already agreed to allow Microsoft to read every e-mail, private message, calendar entry, document, and any other text; to view all photos, videos, charts, graphs, and any other graphic; to monitor and record all web traffic, searches, and downloads; and capture all keystrokes. Microsoft is then able to save and share that information at its discretion. As The Microsoft Privacy Policy puts it: ... We will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary. ... At about the same time, as we reported: ... To make matters worse, Microsoft seems to be rolling out updates to Windows 7 and 8 that bring them into line with the "spyware" elements of Windows 10. Because Microsoft's Services Agreement and Privacy Policy apply to all products and services offered by Microsoft, it looks as though the company is expanding its spying to include Windows 7and 8. The New American covered the specifics of these agreements in a previous article. According to hakspek.com, "new updates that are being deployed to all Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 machines will turn their computers into a big piece of spyware, just like" Windows 10.

China Unable To Recruit Hackers Fast Enough To Keep Up With Vulnerabilities In U.S. Security Systems - The Onion  October 26, 2015 | Vol 51 Issue 43 News · Technology · World · China | BEIJING—Despite devoting countless resources toward rectifying the issue, Chinese government officials announced Monday that the country has struggled to recruit hackers fast enough to keep pace with vulnerabilities in U.S. security systems. “With new weaknesses in U.S. networks popping up every day, we simply don’t have the manpower to effectively exploit every single loophole in their security protocols,” said security minister Liu Xiang, who confirmed that the thousands of Chinese computer experts employed to expose flaws in American data systems are just no match for the United States’ increasingly ineffective digital safeguards. “We can’t keep track of all of the glaring deficiencies in their firewall protections, let alone hire and train enough hackers to attack each one. And now, they’re failing to address them at a rate that shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. The gaps in the State Department security systems alone take up almost half my workforce.” At press time, Liu confirmed that an inadequate labor pool had forced China to outsource some of its hacker work to Russia.

PS  Public School Spiritual Discrimination 
  1. Truth Wins Out...| Family Research Council November 19, 2015 | While some churches are shrinking back in the assault on marriage, several groups -- including The Evangelical Theological Society -- are doing anything but.  At the organization’s Atlanta conference earlier today, America’s premier body of Evangelical Protestant scholars, professors, teachers, and students, adopted four resolutions on human sexuality that are consistent with the Bible’s teaching on marriage and sexuality. ... The resolutions are as follows: (1) We affirm that all persons are created in the image and likeness of God and thus possess inherent dignity and worth.  (2) We affirm that marriage is the covenantal union of one man and one woman, for life.  (3) We affirm that Scripture teaches that sexual intimacy is reserved for marriage as defined above.  This excludes all other forms of sexual intimacy.  (4) We affirm that God created men and women, imbued with the distinct traits of manhood and womanhood, and that each is an unchangeable gift of God that constitutes personal identity.

The not-so-happy liberal blogger wrote, "A new Bloomberg poll on the Tea Party movement confirms ... Tea Party activists are an extension of the most extreme, far-right John Birch Society values, with the added bonus of funding from the corporate right."

  6. Students for Life of America, 9900 Courthouse Road , Spotsylvania, Virginia 22553 |  Kristan Hawkins | President, | Last Thursday evening, on the ABC hit show Scandal, the main character, Olivia Pope, had an abortion.  In fact, the entire Christmas episode was all about abortion. In the show, Olivia encourages the president’s ex-wife and now Senator to finish the filibuster she started on Christmas Eve to stand up for Planned Parenthood funding and then walks into an abortion facility to have an abortion, aborting the child of her and her boyfriend, the President.  As the abortion procedure begins, viewers listened to Aretha Franklin sing “Heavenly hosts sing ‘Alleluia'” and the rest of the “Silent Night."  That’s right, the birth of Jesus became background music for an abortion.  (Boycott ABC - untune the channel.)
