Public Comment Open for PA Plan to Implement ESSA


The PA Department of Education has come up with a 144 page plan to implement the Every Student Succeeds Act.   You can go to this page  and review the entire 144 page document or choose the 39 page power point presentation.

Upon reviewing this document (here’s our ten pages of  Notes on ESSA PA Consolidated State Plan) it became evident that as too many American families have fallen apart or as too many children are being raised in single-parent households, the government,  through the public education system, has been more than willing to step in and attempt to become the “parent, ” “caregiver,” “overseer,” “big brother” of not only the children, but the fragmented families as well.  Creating a nanny state??  The state is tracking through data mining all children from cradle to grave and is more than willing to use them as guinea pigs in the latest social experiment!  Your taxpayer dollars at work.  The church should step back into the “arena” and provide what is really needed by these families and children –not just  food, clothing, homework help, after-school activities,  but also the Truth of the Gospel.
