Alexander, Rodney.tif

Because of the gridlock in Washington, Republic Rep. Rodney Alexander, who is the longest-serving U.S. house member from Louisiana, has decided not to run for re-election.
“Rather than producing tangible solutions to better this nation, partisan posturing has created a legislative standstill,” Alexander said in a released statement. “Unfortunately, I do not foresee this environment to change anytime soon.

Education just keeps a changing

in
Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

My first-grade experience would not have passed muster with modern educational gurus. Our teacher didn’t use the new cure-all Common Core curriculum, there were no such creatures as statewide learning standards and some kids were left behind in reading.
Nevertheless, our huge, high-ceilinged classroom on the first floor of the old, un-air conditioned A. E. Phillips School was before its time. We had learning centers, only we didn’t know it, because nobody had officially invented learning centers back then.
