The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society" web.archive.org/web/2012102019… "the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…

Just had a student, who finds reading a challenge, return 90 Packets of Instant Noodles by @DebFitzpatrick2, telling me he was able to focus on it & read the whole book, and how much he loved it. Now I have to find another one just like it!
I taught this boy a couple of years ago, and the fact that he has read and loved an entire novel by himself, without "having to" for class, is a huge achievement. I'm keenly nervous to find a great book for him to follow up. I'm thinking maybe one by Nick Earls. @nickearls
He liked the realism of 90 Packets, and how the boy had to fend for himself against difficult challenges. "He was a really good character, Miss," he said. This is why we do what we do. #ilovemyjob #studentsneedschoollibraries #LoveOzYA #teachinglife #publiceducation

Breaking: @TDSB Chair says Community Use of Schools grants have been cancelled.... and outlines cost to at risk and vulnerable students because of #FordGovernment cuts. memo to trustees released tonight... excerpts below. #OntEd #Onpoli
This is a further $1-million cut to Canada’s largest school board and will reduce access to school facilities for community organizations/activities, particularly in high-need neighbourhoods. Devastating #ONpoli @OntEdu
@TDSB also warning that #FordGovernment failure to commit to funding the #FocusOnYouth Summer program is putting the program at risk. Last year 600 young people were employed in this program, 11,000 children/youth participated, w proven results! #Onpoli #OntEd

@VanTaylorTX @TexasGOP @GregAbbott_TX @candynoble @MattShaheen @Susan_Fletcher @leachfortexas @CollinCtyVotes @CollinGOP @Scott_SanfordTX Let's see, Van ... We're presently #5 in teen birth rate (per @HHSGov), & the state ed #abstinenceonly policy seems tailor-made to make us #1 there. In fact, the stats say almost one-in-five of US births to girls <15 were right here in Texas. #winning 1/
@VanTaylorTX @TexasGOP @GregAbbott_TX @candynoble @MattShaheen @Susan_Fletcher @leachfortexas @CollinCtyVotes @CollinGOP @Scott_SanfordTX @HHSGov In your quest for first, Van, you'll be glad to know we're #1 already for #uninsured people AND #1 when it comes to least #HealthcareAccess (incl. DC!). We do have a little ways to go on cost; we're only 6th #mostexpensive. Keep denying that expansion! 2/

@VanTaylorTX @TexasGOP @GregAbbott_TX @candynoble @MattShaheen @Susan_Fletcher @leachfortexas @CollinCtyVotes @CollinGOP @Scott_SanfordTX @HHSGov Wanna be the worst place for #children, Van? Texas is almost there! According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation #KidsCount assessment, we're the 3rd-worst for family and community (#47/50) & 9th-worst for #childhealth. Isn't that exciting? /3
