Under House Bill 4, also known as the Parent Involvement and Accountability Act, teachers would be required to grade parents’ involvement with their children’s education.
The legislation, by state Rep. Gregory Holloway (D-Hazlehurst), would mandate a section be added to each child’s report card on which the parents are graded on their responsiveness to communication with teachers, the students’ completion of homework and readiness for tests, and the frequency of absences and tardiness.
Judges 5:19-21 (EXB) Deborah’s song
“The kings came, and they fought.
At that time the kings of Canaan fought
at Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo.
But they took away no ·silver or possessions of Israel [plunder of silver].
The stars fought from heaven [personified as God’s army];
from their ·paths [courses], they fought Sisera.
The Kishon River swept Sisera’s men away,
that ·old river [ancient torrent], the Kishon ·River [torrent; a rainstorm sent from God swelled the river].
March on, my soul, with strength!
We loose the stars to fight from their orbits against parental apathy in the state of Mississippi. We loose God’s holy angels to fight from their highways against the demonic forces that hamper the education of our children. We bind the demonic forces represented by the kings of Canaan, King Jabin, and Sisera.
March on, O holy angels, with strength! Break the oppression of our children. March on!
