Not in the rule book

College classes endeavor to give aspiring teachers guides to help them prepare for the classroom. Such instructions are helpful, but they do not address the unusual behavior of people. Age does not necessarily matter, unless you consider teenagers and adults have more experience.

Rep. Todd Akin

Republican leaders from Mitt Romney on down are urging Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri to withdraw from his U. S. Senate race against Claire McCaskill; it's a seat the GOP hopes to win in its effort to control the Senate. Akin, of course, is the one who made ridiculous statements about rape during a campaign appearance. He's being urged by nearly every Republican bigwig from Romney to Karl Rove to Sen. John Cornyn, chairman of the Senate Campaign Committee, to step down.

The 24-7 school district

I've been doing this work for a pretty long time. The coming school year will be my 38th, which probably qualifies me for "dinosaur status." A lot has changed in education since I walked into my first classroom in 1975. One of the most significant areas of change has been the way in which schools and school districts interact and communicate with families and the general public.

Food-stamp folly

Do you know what Maryland gives its welfare recipients so they can access cash and food benefits? An "Independence Card."

August 20, 2012 | By Ed Feulner The Heritage Foundation | Columns


Noted and passed - Aug. 20, 2012

• The Kershaw County School District has made a good move in establishing a dress code for teachers; that's a subject that has been on the minds of school officials across the country. Teachers must be presentable, and in an age of increasing informality, it's important that students be able to look up to the person running the classroom. Inappropriate appearance detracts from the effectiveness of teachers.

Letter: Confederate descendant endorses flag removal

It appears the Confederate battle flag will soon be removed from the South Carolina Capitol grounds and placed in a museum where it belongs. What many believe to be a symbol of Southern heritage has now become a symbol of division. Only the flag of one sovereign nation should fly over the Capitol grounds. I endorse its removal in honor and wishes of my great-grandfather, a former Confederate soldier who wrote in his diary from Shanghai, Chine, on September 17, 1886:
