Dearest Ladies and Gentlemen at a rather liberal website,

A certain campaign is at the stage where it is about to be implemented on the internet. Wait until the heavy artillery portion of this campaign starts reigning down!!! This campaign alone could put the evolution article in the top 10 for the search "evolution" at a rather popular search engine that begins with a G. :)


Affectionately yours, :)

Many years ago there was a King in Africa. One day, the king became concerned about the safety of animals in his realm, so he banned all hunting. The villagers suddenly found themselves without a means to feed themselves and sent an envoy to the king begging him to reverse his ban. When the king refused, the villagers revolted and overthrew him. This event is highly significant to historians, as it is the first time in history that the reign was called on account of game.

2+2 Used Correctly[edit]

I just read this and found it funny. After dealing with CP and hearing Andy plunk down 2+2 every time he starts losing an argument (so every five hours or so) I tend to view the Dos Y Dos argument rather harshly... But this one is spot on:

The pervasive idea that religion is the source of our deepest ethical intuitions is absurd. We no more get our sense that cruelty is wrong from the pages of the Bible than we get our sense that two plus two equals four from the pages of a textbook on mathematics

The comments of some profiled editors at CP - including the self-declared main player AddisonDM...

  • No, TK isn't in danger to violate the 90/10 rule - especially as Andy would count his work on the block log (not included) to his favour...
  • PJR grew more silent
  • conservative's habit to create/destroy numerous entries seems to have started in 2008
  • at least, RSchlafly is willing to discuss his entries at the talk pages

TK's block comments[edit]

(Block log); 05:46 . . TK (Talk | contribs) blocked (Talk) with an expiry time of 1 year (account creation disabled) (Member of Vandal/Parodist site: yet another disgusting Canadian liberal troll: Disgusting? Anyone know what it was? We really ought to collect some of these. ToastToastand marmite 06:12, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Looking at TK's recent block history (as well as his selective censoring of his talk page) Rons asked him a question about the HLR articles being signed, which seems to be a blockable offence. As for the disgusting part... well, just add me apparently using a Mexican proxy - TK is a lying skunk. (and a coward). --PsyGremlinWhut? 07:19, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
"Yet another"? Dude, there's what, two of us? Barikada 10:48, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
I'm Canadian, but I'm NDP, not Liberal. And I've never had an account at CP, for socking or any other purpose. --Kels 12:43, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
In TK's limited understanding of technology, trolling CP from a BlackBerry makes you a Canadian troll. I'm honestly shocked that he doesn't think our proxies are representative of real, worldwide trolls. "Damn those liberal Uzbekastani trolls!" Neveruse513 12:48, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Historical Revisionism[edit]

Now that I know according to Conservapedia that it was the Yanks That Won It in WW2 I look forward to some more interesting revisionism on their site ! Also this notion that something isn;t an idea until someone rights it down is actually a weird version of Platonism where Ideas are the reality - not the material world. --Rovander 06:38, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

The next liberal?[edit]

Will Andy declare The CIA World Factbook to be libb-burr-ull? MDB 08:59, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Actually, the CIA factbook has been cited before and Andy declared the citation to be liberal. He was soon asked directly whether he thought the CIA factbook was a liberal source, and I can't recall what happened, but it might have been a burning of the evidence following a Schlafly Slip. Anyone else know more? Runderful 09:26, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
There was certainly some discussion here - with our very own SpinyNorman Worm (t | c) 09:43, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
Ah, the Assfly definition of "liberal" -- "disagrees one iota with my definition of the conservative agenda." MDB 10:05, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

(EC EC) Heh, nice talk page.

  • FredFerguson politely posts several factual rebuttals of Andy's deluted ideas on mysteries of World History.
  • Andy: "Your spelling sucks, you are wrong and it's your fault that Americans can't read"
  • FredFerguson: "Well typos do happen. The facts support my side, and why are you being rude?"
  • Andy: "Rude?! I wasn't rude! YOU ARE RUDE! And your spelling sucks! And you are a lying ranting liberal!
  • FredFerguson: "What are you talking about? Also, here are some more facts and books supporting my claims."

I'm expecting a ban in an hour or so... --GTac 11:21, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

So was I.
I really, really, really hope the poor home-schooling parents don't believe the utter, utter, utter crap on CP's history pages. Some of it is just as stupid as their maths and biology. FredFerguson 19:43, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

Defining Literacy[edit]

Since the latest Conservapedia pissing match seems to, in part, cover the definition of "literacy", I'll propose what Andy thinks is an acceptable definition of "literate" -- reads and contributes to conservapedia. Not just "capable of...", mind you -- you have to be an active participant there to qualify as literate. Obviously, CP is such an incredibly valuable resource, any literate adult will be drawn there to contribute. If you're not there, debunking evolution and fighting against gays and atheists, well, you're just a pretender to literacy. MDB 11:12, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Hsmom, as ever comes up with the goods with this report which is well worth a read. Thanks Hsmom. Silver Sloth 11:17, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
I don't get she paying Andy to homskool her kids? Does she know Andy IRL? Why hasn't she been banned? Neveruse513 11:40, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
Hsmom is a bit of an enigma. I'm sure we would disagree strongly on many major points but I really like her. Her impeccable manners and the way she likes to argue from fact, not dogma, have earnt her mucho respect both here and on the other site. Even when she shoots teh Assfly down she does it so nicely, so politely, and, above all, with such well resourced figures, that it would be to churlish, even by teh Assfly's standards to ban her. Silver Sloth 11:50, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
I'd vote that she has to know Andy IRL; there's no way he'd let someone who presents so many facts stick around on his site this long. Z3rotalk 12:09, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
I doubt they know each other IRL. Hsmom was the victim of that all-time classic Andyquote:
You deny far too much, Hsmom. Join the "Economist" in losing credibility by refusing to admit that liberals deify government officials.
I'd love to know what Hsmom thought about that, and why she still sticks around after it.Runderful 12:21, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
I don't know, I guess it depends if you think he talks like that in real life or not. I lean towards yes. Z3rotalk 12:24, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
Nah--Andy likes to play Mr Tough Guy online, but I seriously doubt he has the brass ones to be that confrontational in public. We've seen over and over again that he avoids situations where he might actually have to debate a liberal in person.--WJThomas 13:15, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

By the way, may I ask a dumb question? What were all these "literate" roman & greeks reading? I could be wrong, but it seems to me like there was no printing press. So no real textbooks. No newspapers. No signs around town like "I-25 next left"...

Also, according to the Almighty Andy, they did not even have words for things such as "comedy", and certainly was not great philosophers either. All ancient Greek books must have been liberal homo-erotic novels. Etc 17:19, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Just back on the Hsmom knowing Andy question, my recollection from the early days of Hsmom is that she homeschools her own kids - Andy doesn't get anywhere near them. She only knows Andy via CP which she originally came to as a potential resource. I guess that delusion didn't last long though as it was quickly evident that if anything she was even more shocked by what she found than the rest of us are. Matt 17:38, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

I think that Matt is right about Hsmom's homeschooling. [1] Unfortunately, Hsmom is one of very, very few (like 2 or 3) sane people left on Conservapedia who pay attention to what Andy says. I didn't realize BrendanW was gone (another one bites the dust). Hsmom will be blocked eventually. It seems impossible, but from what I've seen, it will happen sooner or later. JArneal 21:04, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
Hsmom poses a dilemma for Andy because she's a positive role model of a homeschooling parent who's smart, articulate and probably doing a better job educating her kids than most schools (public or private), but at the same time taking him to task on a regular basis for his B.S. and unprofessionalism. I hope she lasts there, but I have a concern that someone like TK will decide to take her out over perceived disrespect, and Andy won't intervene. --SpinyNorman 10:14, 10 March 2009 (EDT)

Feudal gun control![edit]

"Note that gun control would have been impossible under feudalism, because there was no centralized government workers on the manors had their own weapons." ... Uh, right. Atrocious grammar aside, peasants had weapons? WRONG. Peasantry would not have swords and crap. Why? Because they're peasants. They're the lowest of the low. They'd have tools they could use as weapons, yes, but that's nowhere near the same thing. Seriously, what the hell? Does this man just mash the keyboard and hit "Spell check"? GAH! Barikada 11:31, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Please, don't insult spell-check. Z3rotalk 11:32, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
Ah the feudal era. A simple time where things were better for everyone. Where there were no weapon control laws, and the peasantry lived in constant fear of a neighboring lord suddenly attacking, raping the women and carting off the rest to a life of servitude. If only we could return to such a time.--ScottA 11:58, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
But did they have classroom prayer? Totnesmartin 12:00, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
Haven't you been paying attention? A quick look at Merriam Wester reveals there is no entry on classroom prayer, meaning the evil liberals have been successful in eliminating the word, thus eliminating classroom prayer. Z3rotalk 12:08, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
They had compulsory prayer. & woe betide anyone caught outside their parish on a Sunday! ToastToastand marmite 12:09, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
It's amazing that someone so American, who should therefore be pro-democracy, pro-freedom and anti-aristocracy, can idealise the feudal system like Andy does. Especially when his reasons include 'No commuting to work' and the like. It's bizarre.-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 12:16, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
One of the fundamental parts of conservative thought is that "the old, tried and true ways are probably better than new and unproven ideas". Andy seems to take that well beyond even the most logical extreme, and apparently feels that automatically, the older a system is, the better it is. Thus, his fascination with feudalism and his obsession with ancient Greece and Rome. And I still assert that Andy is convinced he would have been Duke Andrew the First of the House of Schlafly, Senator Andreus Schlaflus, or Alexandrew the Great of Schlafledon, rather than a peasant cleaning shit out of the stables. MDB 12:34, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
People like Andy claim to love Democracy, but we all know that Andy would be quite happy living in a Theocratic Dictatorship as long as it was the "right" religion with the "right" leader. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 12:38, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
People like Andy love anything when it serves their purpose. "Democracy" is great when it's about gays and marriage - but it's "beyond reasonable" when it means people have voted to make rich people pay more, and you know, kill babies. Freedom is speech is wonderful when you are degrading a black president, but how dare you say a war is unjust. that's anti american". --Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot"«Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth.

Two hours, but re-instated D-Notice 20:10, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
Oh, it's like every other belief Andy has: it probably emerged during some conversation, on or offline, when he made some out-of-nowhere statement, refused to recant it, and has to spend the rest of his life backing it up. I can imagine him explaining some conservative idea to somebody who says, "But that's practically going back to the Dark Ages!"
Andy replies, "The Dark Ages weren't bad at all. That's a liberal myth. You had prayer in schools, there weren't any abortions..."
"What do you mean? There was plague, torture, feudalism-- "
"Feudalism? Feudalism's a great system! I'm 98% certain that you can't name one thing truly wrong with it. Open your mind or lost credibility."
And so on, forever. Andy has been spending months or years looking for any possible Good Thing in feudalism, all to validate one statement made to an atheist this one time, and to maintain his internal self-worth which is based on the rock-solid belief that he is never wrong.

But honestly...don't you think it's a little strange that Obama couldn't find the time to get some literature published while he was in law school and presiding over the law review?
Unless Obama comes out and accounts for what must have been copious amounts of free time (with third party sources verifying), the question of his authorship remains one of the world's greatest mysteries. Neveruse513 13:52, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

"Jeeves", not only is your spelling atroshus, one of the very first sentences of the article you sourced reads "[h]is name doesn't appear on any legal scholarship." That's as far as I need to read. And I don't care if the article goes on to say something to the contrary, because politico is nothing but liberal doggerel anyway. How about you stop swallowing the kool-aid for a minute and open your mind?
(IRL, they go on to discuss a case note he authored, which is basically a simple summary of a legal decision and doesn't truly leave a great deal of room for interpretation - regardless of what that politico article says [it's wasn't "Obama's answer", it was the courts] - I actually read the entire case note to settle an argument with a conspiracy theorist) Neveruse513 14:41, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Linguistic Determinism[edit]

Now that Andy has given a clearer statement of his developing theory of history in Lecture Seven, I've finally got round to putting his central claims in an article, going under the name Linguistic determinism, in reference to the old (pseudo?)-Marxist economic determinism. Whereas Marx explained history as class struggle in the context of the development of productive forces, Schlafly has explained it as a struggle between languages. Just giving a heads up so people can write it better. Bil08 14:36, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

There should be some just grand "Schlafly Theory of History" article. If anyone's interested, I'd rather someone more technically competent made it. Some of it is normal American Christian revisionism, but quite a bit is peculiar to the Schlaf, and some very clearly has been developed just as a response to criticism; that is, he didn't really believe it til evil libruls prodded him. Which makes his homeschooling even more unfortunate because each lecture increasingly goes down the rabbit hole to defend all the insanities. --CWaddell 15:57, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

World History Homework Seven[edit]

Finally got around to reading the questions. I'm real excited to see what his scholars have to say about "Why did the Renaissance occur in Europe and not in Asia?" Also "Dante's great work about Hell: something we should hear more about today? Your view, please." How is that an honors question when he gives you the expected answer? Or this question: "Do you consider the non-Catholic English Christians (the Anglicans) to be 'Protestants'?" --CWaddell 22:34, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

And here's a link to the questions. Any student who doesn't answer "Obama cause he's a deceitful librul" to answer 7 will get points deducted (and not just on that question, all questions will be graded tougher!). Also, Andy can be damn lazy concerning his precious dozen students sometimes:
H6. Chivalry, revisited: write about any aspect of this issue that you like.
H8. Write about any other aspect of the material covered by the lecture.
H10. Write about any subject I like.

Andy in the Courtroom[edit]

Andy, of course, claims to be an attorney. I'm wondering if he ever actually argued a case in court, and imagining what that might have been like.

For instance...

  • At a certain 'Trial of the Century' in Los Angeles
    • Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, less than one percent of retired NFL running backs have ever committed murder. Therefore, Mr. Simpson cannot have killed these people.
  • Brown versus Board
    • Being charitable, and assuming he would have argued for desegregation
      • Honorable justices, do you know who would have supported segregation? Darwin! And do you know who was influenced by Darwin? Hitler! I rest my case.
    • Or, being less charitable
      • Honorable justices, why would you want to saddle these poor negroes with the public school system? Obviously, they'd be better off home schooled.
      • The attorneys for the opposition are liberals, and liberals use deceit. Therefore, you can't believe anything they say.
  • Roe versus Wade
    • You'd have to be a liberal to want to make abortion legal!

Yeah, but it's not just that. Look at Talk:Main Page - I mean, that's normally one of the most trafficked pages, as drive-by users complain about mad crazy distortions of the news stories that get posted to the Main Page (and it's a page that used to attract a LOT of non-RW, non-WIGO users). But there's been no comments about the Gardasil posting, no comments about the latest Guantanamo Bay posting, no comments about the White House party budgets, the jobless numbers due to foreigners, the Texas school thing - all topics which would have attracted much ire over how the story is portrayed in the past. The page is dead. And that makes me think that really, THIS is the moment when we are seeing CP drift out of relevance. I've not been one to proclaim the death of CP in the past, but I'm increasingly of a mind that there's just a lot less interest in them these days. Which is, as I'd like to point out, a Good Thing. DogP 18:51, 10 March 2009 (EDT)
FYI, ignoring vandals, parodists and entertainers, there's only about six actual CP editors listed in the last 500 edits at present. So we are really now talking about a site used by less than fifteen or twenty people at most. Influence, eh? Andy - time to report for duty at the Eagle Forum again - they need some cakes baked for Mommy's coffee mornings. DogP 18:57, 10 March 2009 (EDT)
I"m a political hac, and probably everyone knows my politics, but I can't help but wonder that, since now we have a real adult at the helm, who is making mistakes, making decisions, and actually listening to people who are both for and against his decisions (from the left and the right), if parodyesque reality just isn't as important to most people compared with seeing the world try to get back on track. That, and this kind of extremism, childish antics (see Chuck Norris, for truly childish antics) is seen as what it is, rather than seen as *the* voice of the White House and politics at large. Hopefully, conservative (religious) radicalism in all its forms, and not just CP, is dying out as we learn to once again say "wow, ok, so this is what governance is supposed to look like" (not saying O isn't making mistakes or doing things I wish he woudln't, but that's he's owning up to them, listing his positions openly, etc.)

But many of those items were posted way before it fell into full-time night mode yesterday, Human. That's what's funny - no-one has been commenting on those stories for days and days now - the last thing that got any discussion going was the British health care thing, on March 4th, almost a week ago.

Talk:Main_Page is pretty much the Miner's Canary: As long as people are actively discussing there, the site as a whole is more alive. But over the past few weeks/months, they kept banning ANYBODY who disagreed with them, and so there simply is nobody left to discuss. (Especially since all sysops are basically going Lone Wolf in pushing their agendas in their own tiny kingdoms.) In the end, basically only Dinsdale and Hsmom were left... and then Dinsdale was banned, too. Now it's basically only Hsmom (not counting the various "survives less than two week" accounts) who dares to speak out against the blatant stupidity, and even she by now realized that doing so is bad for one's wiki-health. --Sid 21:50, 10 March 2009 (EDT)

Comments per day - II
Editors per day

Some observations:

  • at the moment, there are more comments per day than there were last year
  • But: the number of comments by common editors (those without any additional rights) is quite stable (150-200 per day): it's not proportional to the overall traffic. So, a spike in the number of the edits by sysops (lights) doesn't indicate that something interesting is happening, but only that janitorial stuff is going on

larronsicut fur in nocte 05:56, 11 March 2009 (EDT)

And that's why we love you, LArron. Nice job. Have you a rational way of looking at where those comments are? My theory - poorly developed, I freely admit, is that comments on articles inside CP more often represent WIGO readers, RW regulars, and the readers of blogs that cover the madness at CP. Whereas Talk:Main Page more often represents new, drive-by editors who either blunder upon CP or have sought it out having heard about it. Is there an evidence to support this theory, do others feel it might be even vaguely correct, and if so, is there a statistically significant drop in Main Page comments? DogP 11:51, 11 March 2009 (EDT)

If you read on through the (excessively long) article, it gets even better: "[Dr.] Shoemaker said blood tests have confirmed that Kenzie has a series of abnormalities in her innate immune system, a condition that affects less than 1 percent of Americans." Also, "According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 23 million doses of Gardasil had been distributed nationwide as of Dec. 31. As of that date, 11,916 reports of adverse reactions following Gardasil vaccination were made to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System". That tells us that 0.052% of vaccinations are associated with "adverse reactions". That's background noise. Something near 0.05% of the population of the US is experiencing symptoms like the ones described in the girl in this article *at any given time*. In short, this is all utter nonsense.

Andy will hold onto any story he possibly can to show Vaccine is da evil.

As you have probably seen, I agree with you. Ultimately, it all comes down to religion. She is just religious enough that she'd stick with CP over RW anytime.

(unindent) I disagree with the premise. Unlike CP, we don't do our dealings in the back room. Almost everything is done on wiki where others can see it and comment on it. There's no information gained by creating an account that can't be gained by simply coming by and reading. Unless he created a sock on the thought that "I'll make a few left wing edits and they'll accept me," which is kinda stupid cause we don't work that way. However, I can't say anything for sure, because I have it on the best authority that TK is a massive prick. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 11:48, 11 March 2009 (EDT)

Even if we did work that way, on this man's wiki there's more or less nothing you can do as a sysop that you can't as a regular user. There's simply no incentive to deception. You might as well just be yourself. CP could learn a thing or two from us and wikipedia. All their restriction just caused the parodists to become more inventive. Flagged revisions will be just more of the same, there'll be less MOAR HITLER! and more North Western Arboreal Octopuses. It's not like there isn't enough subtle parody being perpetrated on CP as it is, and if they weren't all such morons then they'd spot it. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:36, 11 March 2009 (EDT)

This Department of Ed page for the SES program says: Contact Information 609-943-4283, Dr. Wendi Webster O’Dell Coordinator, Ms. Peggy Gills Porche, Education Program Development Specialist (commas mine) - it might be worth calling to see if an application has been filed. --Too tired to log in 11:39, 11 March 2009 (EDT)

It must be interesting living life with that kind of inflated sense of relevance. I mean, most people would see he was wearing all black and imply that he was using the long held notion that those in all black are villains and something to be feared.... Not Andy. When he sees all black he screams "Anti-Christian." Of course, there's no evidence given, no proof, nothing that even says black has any religious connection whatsoever, and when confronted with that, he just says it's only anti-christian if they intend it to be anti-christian....

Presumably, it's the little white dog collar that makes someone dressed in black pro-christian rather than anti-.

More shootings[edit]

As much as I loathe CP for once again hanging their agenda on a mass killing (I swear, I'm sure they wait, salivating, for things like this to happen), I also notice they're conspicuously silent about the Alabama rampage. Maybe it was a home-schooler that did it. Or maybe no gun-toting passersby played hero and shot him. Certainly, it seems to be something they can't spin. --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:50, 11 March 2009 (EDT)

Andy spun the guy who shot up a chruch because he thought it was too liberal. When they searched his room, they found books from Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. He snapped not because of anything a conservative did, but because the liberals something something... There is nothing he can't spin.
I figure that Andy's already thinking about it. He has to start working the spin right away. He must be thinking that there's a good chance that this guy is going to turn out to be a southern-white-"christian" (from Andy's perspective)-conservative-Republican-2nd Amendmenter. My guess is that he goes for a No True Scotsman excuse. --Edgerunner76Your views are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter 13:16, 11 March 2009 (EDT)

You can always tell when Andy's going to make some massive logical leap (as in this case) - he uses the word 'obviously'. The correct way to read it is to temporarily translate 'obviously' as 'in my head, with no evidence whatsoever to support the notion,'. It basically signals that he's about to pull some sort of 'fact' out of his ass without really taking time to engage his brain. Worm (t | c) 09:59, 12 March 2009 (EDT)

World History Homework Six[edit]

I still think the preponderance of evidence is on the other side. NateH's last name is self-reported as "Hagan"; I think he's a brother (younger brother, please God) of one of the other H's, and one of Andy's IRL students. But yeah, his answers are usually the most facepalm. --Marty 00:55, 12 March 2009 (EDT)

Judge orders homskollars into public district classrooms

How long until this shit hits the fan at CP? I think we can expect great things from Andy about this. Neveruse513 09:49, 12 March 2009 (EDT)

Here's the rub, what is unique about this case, is that it stems from a divorce where the two parents disagree over what is appropriate for the children. For all the whining you will see from the right, this isn't an open door to take qualified home schooling away as an option (and it's not just the right that homeschools. Liberals have long recognized that intelligent kids stagnate in the cesspool that modern public education can become if the district is poorly managed), but rather if you and your partner disagree about how the kids will be educated, a judge *will* decide, just like he will decide what church they can attend if that is in question.--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot"«Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth.

The WND article only hints at it (there's a shock), but it seems the ruling was the result of the parent's divorce proceedings, and the father didn't want the kids homeschooled. WND, of course, portrays it as some kind of evil liberal assault on homeschooling. MDB 10:16, 12 March 2009 (EDT)

SES Application Update[edit]

I got a call back this morning from a staffer at the NJ Education Department office that handles SES applications, and she was pretty helpful in answering my questions. Here are the key takeaways:

  • The department does not comment on the status of applications until they have been approved or declined, and this includes not officially acknowledging whether an application from Andy has been received.
  • The review process that leads to an approval or rejection does not allow for public comment as part of the review process. The review is done by a panel of experts who evaluate the applications based on academic criteria and the supporting materials provided.
  • The review process can take several months, and the only way to confirm that it's done is if we see Andy listed on the SES website as an approved provider. She suggested that if we check back in late June the review should be done by then.
  • The SES program is designed to help kids improve in areas where they have an educational deficit, so the review process for these applications will focus on the content and overall quality of these programs to answer the question "will this help the kids catch up in this subject?"
  • While you have to wait until an SES application is approved to challenge it, all SES providers must be in compliance with educational laws like Title IX and the No Child Left Behind Act, such as "SEC. 1119. Qualifications for Teachers and Paraprofessionals." and "Parental right-to-know letters". A nice recap of these guidelines is here.

And finally, my favorite takeaway:

  • While the SES program supports providers from outside the public school system, it does not support programs providing religious instruction. While qualifying that I am not anti-Christian, I asked her politely but directly whether a course in World History taught from an openly Christian perspective, using the Bible as the overriding reference book and ensuring that all "facts" regarding the age of the Earth or ancient cultures conformed to YEC Christianity would be considered religious instruction or an academically acceptable history course for SES purposes, she answered "religious instruction" without hesitating or qualifying.

In short, Andy's application should be rejected in short order for three reasons. First, he has no documented track record of helping kids remedially in the subjects he teaches. Second, a review of his academic qualifications, his lectures and his homework grading should shoot him down on the "qualified" criteria. Third, while it's fine to teach "World History" from a hardline YEC point of view if you do so privately, you better not expect the state Department of Education to subsidize you. --SpinyNorman 10:59, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
