yep.
Only You Know Who or What the Enemy is

Do you know the real reasons why the enemy wants to fight? 

The goal of the enemy is to provoke you into joining what you have rejected; and in the alternative to defeat you.   Not because you are weak, but because of your tremendous abilities, value, and strength.

The enemy has many faces - a person, a competitor; or evil against good. Whatever the case may be, the enemy sees you as a threat.  Be the warrior for your cause. And never, ever, give up.

Wow! Talk about timely! Here is an excerpt to the linked article on teaching in the classroom. This story really makes me very sad and concerned for our communities.

"Young teachers from across the United States have told me they no longer have the ability to properly manage classrooms, not because of lack of training, not because of lack of ability, not because of lack of desire, but because of upper administration decisions to reduce statistics on classroom referrals and in-school and out-of-school suspensions. As any classroom teacher can tell you, when the students know there will be no repercussions for their actions, there will be no change in their behavior. When there is no change in their behavior, other students will have a more difficult time learning.

Teachers are being told over and over again that their job is not to teach, but to guide students to learning on their own. While I am fully in favor of students taking control of their learning, I also remember a long list of teachers whose knowledge and experience helped me to become a better student and a better person. They encouraged me to learn on my own, and I did, but they also taught me many things. In these days when virtual learning is being force-fed to public schools by those who will financially benefit, the classroom teacher is being increasingly devalued. The concept being pushed upon us is not of a teacher teaching, but one of who babysits while the thoroughly engaged students magically learn on their own.

During the coming week in Missouri, the House of Representatives will vote on a bill which would eliminate teacher tenure, tie 33 percent of our pay to standardized test scores (and a lesser, unspecified percentage for those who teach untested subjects) and permit such innovations as "student surveys" to become a part of the evaluation process."
