April 27 a Strawberry milk shakes return

April 26 p One last thing from the
week that was.
April 26 p During the last Sch Bd meeting,
Superintendent K Tanner commented on a national grass roots effort by parents.
According to several newspaper accounts, 1000's pf parents are refusing
to let their curtain climber participate in the new Common Core standardized
test. Here in West Virginia we renamed it several ways including Next Gen.
April 26 p Tanner said there is no
"opt out" provision in this state but no disciplinary action will be taken
for those refusing to be tested. Testing begins this week in Clay.
It will be interesting to see if any of our parents stand up and say to
no to national testing.
April 26 p Around the country, parents
are saying they don't want their curtain climber under such pressure when
it doesn't matter one iota to the student. If the Pentagon is uneasy about
the grassroots effort, it's because a bunch of of their funding depends
on 95% of the brats participating in Common Core. I'ts all about money
and little more.
April 26 p Under the Gold Dome,
the elected want our kids in school longer each day and 180 days out of
the year. Some counties will have school until nearly the end of June this
year to meet those mandates.
April 26 p Interestingly enough, Common
Core testing will take a full three weeks with all of that being done online.
That's three weeks of screwed up school schedules where, if it's not your
turn to take the test, you can't play on the internet.
April 26 p So much for educamation
in the land of little. For all intents and purpose,the school year is over
and it's still April.
April 26 p all together now, pitiful!

April 26 a Not so today with another
sign in the window reading, will open on Monday. For now, forget
buying fresh produce and meat in Clayberry.
April 26 a Saturday morning, one business
