By: Mike McDaniel Free at last, free at last; great God Almighty, free at last! No, I wasn’t born a poor black child, and I only sing spirituals as part of America’s great choral tradition, not because they’re part of my individual cultural heritage, but I am, this year, celebrating my liberation from mandatory, high-stakes testing. I am, you see gentle readers, now teaching 11th grade English–American literature–and state testing is done in the 10th grade.
Due to a change in Social Security regulations that took place on April 30th 2016, you can now add as much as a potential $570 to your monthly benefits… Just by contacting the SS administration and saying ONE simple word.
That’s an extra $6,840 a year!
