We believe the words of God in Deuteronomy 6:6-7:
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. (KJV)

Thank you for your past support of BASE Camp, the Kentucky Society of CPA's (KyCPA) Business & Accounting Summer Education camp. The program has been in operation for several years and we had planned to continue this year. However, the KyCPA Board of Directors and leadership have shifted the strategic focus for the coming year and have opted not to hold BASE Camp in 2013. Please accept my apologies for the short notice of this change and know that we will keep you informed of all future KyCPA student programs and activities.

If you have any questions, please contact me at vblair@kycpa.org. Again, we apologize for the short notice and appreciate your interest in BASE Camp and the accounting profession. We hope to find other ways we can work together in the very near future.

#Homeschooling and the Common Core

Common Core will be one of the topics addressed at the 2013 CHEK Leadership Summit.  Please consider attending.  More information and registration page found at CHEK.org.

 "Connecting an individual‘s education achievement on a standardized test to a nation‘s economic future is not empirically or logically acceptable and using that mythical connection for large-scale policymaking is civically reckless. When education leaders and those who prepare them parrot that argument they actually provide credence to that anti-intellectual myth. When school administrators implement programs and policies built on those faulty arguments, they commit education malpractice." Christopher Tienken on Common Core.

What is Common Core? "In 2010, the National Governors Association published their “Common Core State Standards” (CCSS). These were meant as voluntary math and English guidelines which individual states could adopt." http://www.hslda.org/docs/news/2012/201212170.asp
