i have just downloaded.  sounds interesting.  i hope to read it soon.

from a post i saw:

Igniting Purpose is still available for free online athttp://www.ignitepurposenow.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Igniting-Purpose-Book1.pdf this book is a great resource for anyone looking for guidance on how to strengthen the relationship between adults and children/teenagers both at home and at school. The book discusses a philosophy that helps are children/teenagers become better people instead of better test takers. It is a philosophy that creates a home/school environment that is more nurturing and inspires young people to find their purpose in life and use their gifts in the service of others.

“impossible.”

education…a poem.

When public education was real.

Learning became a thrill.

Students learned to love to read,
And reading helped them to succeed.

School was fun each and every day.
And each student learned in a different way.

The love of school, the love of reading,
Had the students fully succeeding,

Now, testing and teaching to the test is everything,
No enrichment or review, no art and no time to sing.

Now we are producing a dumber generation,
And they are the ones supposed to lead the nation.

They can’t lead, so follow is what they will do,
For using their thinking skills will be something new.

What a mess they have made of our schools,
Treating all the teachers like worthless fools.

Public education is declining and going away,
And none of the veteran teachers want to stay.

So here we are in terrible situation,
Public education is ruined in our nation.
