About

DSC_1454I am a speaker | author | blogger who lives in Austin, TX, the husband of Vicki, the father of Landry, and a die-hard fan of Real Madrid CF.

Since 2002, I have loved every minute of teaching high school history, government, and economics. However, as an educational “insider”, my personal experiences in the classroom confirmed that our school system has charted a dark path purposely designed to mass-produce children into a predictably standardized nation of mindless consumers and voters.

The sanctimonious rhetoric about helping kids achieve their highest potential is just so much paper posted on a classroom wall to impress parents at “back-to-school” night. After all, despite obvious and persistent problems, nothing has changed. If anything, our school system has only gotten worse.

A number of years ago, a deeply disturbing question occurred to me: “What if our school system was actually succeeding beyond all expectation…because it was really designed to fail our children?” So I wrote Un Amarakan Edukashun: The over-schooling and under-educating of America to confirm through research what I saw every day in the classroom.

So, this is my personal blog. Its purpose is to “empower education through parents” and its mission is two-fold:

(1) To help parents become confidently intentional about choosing how their children will be educated, and

(2) To equip young adults to pursue their God-given talents and passions to their fullest potential.

Consequently, I write about education, personal development, and leadership. My goal is to deliver informative and relevant content and to provide resources that truly benefit the reader. If you are a parent or a student looking for solutions, information, community, inspiration, or a worthy cause…this blog is for you.

To stay connected to all the latest information…please sign up for my emails. As a founding member of the “I-Hate-Spam” club, you have my solemn promise not to flood your inbox, but whenever I write or discover information that would benefit you, I will definitely pass it on.

The campaign to empower today’s generation to become less schooled and more educated has begun. Though the effort to transform education in America will not end with us…it must start somewhere.

It is my profound honor to travel this road together.
