Garbe

Washington Center was a part of the SEC Playmakers Pals program and was paired with the University of Florida women’s’ basketball team.  Ms. Amy Garbe’s class became pen-pals with Corey Staples, a junior guard for the Gators.  The students helped to make cards and crafts to send to Corey.  The students also followed the Gators basketball season; they incorporated math skills with counting points scored and comparing final scores to determine the winner of each game.  They also used map skills to find where the Gators were playing and where their opponents where from.  All of the students enjoyed learning more about basketball and cheering on the Florida Gators and their pen-pal, Corey.  Go Gators!

SC Capitol USPIE

During a recent hearing on H. 3759, which passed, SC Representative Shannon Erickson talked heavily about tracking ALL children, including private and homeschoolers, from birth.

Now, after much backlash, and in an attempt to save face, SC Republican Rep. Shannon Erickson has claimed her comments were taken out of context. So in order to give you more context, we have added more of her speech for you to discern her intent for tracking children from birth in all educational environments including home school. Just watch this clip of Rep. Erickson saying it’s the legislature’s responsibility to monitor and measure child progress.
