School Choice and NCLB

Rebecca hagelin discusses School Choice here. It's a column about renewing No Child Left Behind.
"Choosing how your children are educated should be as routine in America as the ability to choose your neighborhood, your church, and your place of employment."

She does mention homeschooling as well as private schools. She provides lots of links to reports and studies as well.

Speaking of No Child Left Behind, sounds like a popular book series. No wait, that was my co-workers book Kiss My Left Behind

New Orleans is a Mess!

I was overwhelmed with the destruction of New Orleans. After a 17 hour drive down there with the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief crew from my home church, we spent a week working on houses and a ministry building that will help with housing more volunteers. There will be a need for volunteers for many years. I didn't really believe that when I first heard it, but now that I have seen the extent of the damage, I do believe it. Unless you've ever seen something like this you have no idea how devastated the city is. I will be writing on New Orleans and my time there in the coming weeks. I hope all of you stick with me and read these.

I'll Be Gone For a Week

I'm leaving Sat morning at 4:00 am to go to New Orleans and help with the rebuild. This is the 5th team my small church is sending (three chainsaw teams and two cooking teams). My first time to go. We were supposed to go to Japser, TX, but that got changed a couple of days ago. Pray for me and the others.

What would Jesus Buy?

What would Jesus buy? That HDTV? Those no-nutrition snacks? And where would He buy whatever it was He bought? TASTE AND SEE What Would Jesus Buy? Saving the world one cashmere sweater at a time. by Agnieszka Tennant attempts a way-too-short answer for this.

I'm not a Wal-Mart basher (OK, I am) but there are consequences regarding where we buy things. I have written about Wal-Mart before, here, here, here, and here.

Good News! God is a Republican!

This story tells about a man that signed his voter registration "God," and now has to explain himself to the County. Sounds to me like this man is in very grave danger. via Relevant Magazine.
