On Saturday November 23, the Pickens County Performing Arts Center hosted the world premiere of a newly released film “Written Off” at LABS for Dyslexia. The documentary, directed by filmmaker Collins Abbot White, discussed how parents navigate the public educational system when a child has dyslexia. It showed how schools like Lakes and Bridges Charter School in Easley, SC are paving the way by offering free education specifically directed at students with dyslexia to prepare them for success.

WARRENTON, Mo., Nov. 26, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Atheists are at it again, in Knox County, KY this time, trying to prevent the exercise of free speech if it involves Christian viewpoint. In October, the school district allowed the launch of a pilot "Bible Release Time" program operated in partnership with Elgin Children's Foundation (ECF) and a local church. Many similar programs run throughout the state-a class for religious instruction allowed by Tennessee law following these requirements: 1) Children must have a signed parental request; 2) It must be off school property; 3) Government funds cannot be used. On Halloween night, a local atheistic group enacted a deceptive ploy to scare school boards and parents, similar to when after-school Good News Clubs have been launched by Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF).
