“CHILDREN ARE MORE THAN A SCORE”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 2, 2015) — When The Post & Email logged in to its Twitter account on Saturday evening, it found a constant stream of graphical tweets issued nearly every second on the “It’s About the Child” conference to be held in Houston, TX January 29-31 created and sponsored by BreakingNewsJournal.net.
The continuous Twitter stream, which lasted approximately 30 minutes, is in apparent anticipation of an upcoming Twitter gathering on the event to be held at PatriotJournalist.com on Sunday at 9:00 p.m. ET to publicize the event.
“It’s About the Child” has been months in the planning and will present alternatives to “Common Core,” the new educational program introduced by the Obama regime which has caused much consternation among parents from many states, particularly because of standardized testing. “Children are more than a score,” White wrote in one of her tweets.
Ruth Bryant White, founder of BreakingNewsJournal.net (BNJ), interviewed with The Post & Email in early November about the conference, which will conclude the day before the Iowa presidential caucuses begin on February 1.
White and the conference attendees believe that Common Core is harmful to children and has taken away parental control and the individualization of their children’s education.
White is a seasoned Hollywood producer and has been building the BNJ media initiative for the last several years. During the conference, her company will be launching two “clean” television stations featuring education on the U.S. Constitution and classical elementary educational subjects such as math and reading.
White has developed contacts all over the country and internationally and has received a commitment from Heidi Cruz, wife of presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, to attend the conference. Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina will also be attending, according to the event website.
For those who cannot attend in person, “virtual tickets” are available for $10.00 plus a $2.04 service fee for a total of $12.04 which will allow the patron to access live streaming of the event.
Speakers at the event include veteran educator Dr. Peg Luksik, Tennessee Against Common Core founder Karen Bracken, pediatrician Dr. Karen Effrem, psychotherapist Joan Landes and teenage pro-life activist Angelique Clark, among others.
The public can subscribe to the television channels at a special promotional price of $70.00 for a year, which includes the live streaming of the conference.
