Entrepreneurship Can Be Taught to Teens...if Teachers are Taught First! (Next Workshop: May 10-11 in Chico, CA)

Greetings from California State University, in Chico, CA. Our humble little city of Chico is still adjusting to all of the new evacuee-citizens from nearby Paradise, which was completely ravaged by the Camp Fire in November.

On Thursday and Friday, January 18-19, 2019, we conducted a FANTASTIC entrepreneurship teacher training workshop. I am convinced more than ever that entrepreneurship CAN BE TAUGHT. We had 20 teachers from four states here on campus to…

How teachers talk about Sight-Words

We have 50 million functional illiterates. Two questions emerge. What technique was used to accomplish this destruction? And how was the Education Establishment able to conceal the whole operation?

Sight-words were used to undermine literacy.

As for concealment, the main part of the secret is dense, unfriendly jargon. People talk a lot but almost nobody knows what's going…
