BJU20Flag20Display 2018

On the eighteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Bob Jones University commemorated the 2,977 lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001, with a display of American flags at the front of campus.

In addition, a replica of the World Trade Center Cross, one of the most recognizable symbols found in the wreckage of Ground Zero, was featured at the Wade Hampton entrance. The original steel girder, a 17-foot long crossbeam, became a source of hope to many in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. It is currently on display in the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City.

FL Reading List Gutting Common Core

Editor’s Note - Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has taken concrete steps to rid Florida’s public schools of the colossal mistake we call Common Core. His appointment of Richard Corcoran in 2018 as the state’s Education Commissioner has already produced good fruit, as can be seen by Corcoran’s recently released “Back-to-School Reading List” for students in grades K-12. Donna Garner with EducationViews.org shares this important resource that can be utilized by teachers and parents alike. Pat Daugherty, Ed.D.

Florida’s Super Reading List — Gutting Common Core From Its Schools

I commend Florida under Gov. Ron DeSantis for making great strides toward gutting Common Core from its public schools. Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran (appointed by Gov. DeSantis in Dec. 2018) has released a Back-to-School Reading List for Grades K – 12.
