  1. The Ruby Payne material is the sickest of all. In an interview she claimed to have taken a course in how to “channel” and once in communication with the metaphysical wisdom world, the answer was that her life course was to help children. So, she “helped” them by authoring narratives and conducting workshops that reinforced every race and class prejudice on the planet. Who exactly was she communing with? The Spawn of Satan? We MUST move these people and their ideas away from all children. The deficit issue is in full force at present. All testing mandates reinforce it and disembodied curriculum like Common Core guarantee it through its divorcement from the everyday lives of bright, inquisitive children. Everything is at stake here.
