  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    ScoopHost.com is currently running Scoop version Undeterminable from .

    Common Core Pause & Review

    "Pause and review" on Common Core and high-stakes testing sent to Governor

    Following the Senate's concurrence on Michigan's omnibus budget yesterday, that included a "pause and review" provision for Michigan Department of Education's implementation of Common Core national curriculum standards and the high-stakes testing associated with it, Rep. Tom McMillin said,

    "Today is a very good day for Michigan citizens, almost all of who did not have the opportunity to weigh in on turning over the standards taught in all of Michigan's public schools to a national trade association (National Governors Association).  They will now have that opportunity as the legislature debates the matter.

    It's pretty surprising that supporters of Common Core and the high-stakes nation test, Smarter Balance, seem scared by the thought of having to defend them.  Though, I do understand it must be tough to sell the abdication of education curriculum standards to a national private entity.  I certainly look forward to the debate in the coming months.  We currently have better math standards in place than Common Core and we can certainly improve our ELA standards without giving the NGA the sole authority to determine and alter them."

    A point should be made..  Different standards can ALWAYS be implemented by local schools as appropriate.

    Watch for the most "progressive" school districts to freak out for a while.

    But why?

    Its about control.  More control for an overgrown federal bureaucracy that cannot handle the most trivial tasks already, yet with this curriculum endeavors to take on the state's task (remember the 10th amendment?) of public education. Along with that perhaps satisfying at the same time a 'progressive' need to rope in home school children and leave no stone unturned with indoctrination.

    Home schooling is affected how? Below the fold ~

    A New Year That May Be The Last?

    So lets have some fun with it.

    Its 2012.  In 87 years we may have to duplicate this conversation, and I promise to save the Polaroid of this site as it was today, so we can laugh at the missing future as predicted by an already extinct civilization.  (though THAT has its own chilling undertones) We could have done the filler "top stories of the year" thing like the local papers have done. Mixing in minor updates with old stories that our A.D.D. selves will have forgotten already, or we can have YOU do it.

    Yep.  This is a "collaborative" effort.  It says so right up in the tagline.

    So put on your thinking caps, or pick up your thinking beer steins, and let us know.  Which RightMichigan.com article in 2011 was it that you found most interesting?  What was it that ticked you off, made you laugh, encouraged support (or dislike) of a candidate etc.?  Have we learned anything, or are we repeating the same information?  Was there a Michigan conservative blog elsewhere that you found particularly cool? Its time we sharpen our reading, RIGHTing and reviewing skills.

    With an upcoming RightMichigan.com blog contest, a historic election season, and the upcoming end of the world as predicted by a long dead culture, its more important than ever to help us, this state, and our country finally get it RIGHT.

    Oh, and yes, I did mention a blogging contest.

    The Mayan calendar says we don't make it past 2012, so maybe its time we switch to the Microsoft windows 7 calendar, and hit at least 2099.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Judge Election Series Soon!

    One of the most confusing parts of the election cycle is the selection of Judges.  Who is conservative, who is not? What experience, and what level of confidence do we have they will apply the rule of law vs. applying their will to law?  Will they follow the constitution even at the local levels?

    I will be talking about some of those in my own area soon, and would welcome insight and or others talking about their own areas.

    Hope to get some participation.
