Notre Dame students demand to read fewer white male scholars

One of several demands lodged by ‘End Hate at ND’ student group A group of students at the University of Notre Dame is demanding that courses be reworked to reduce the number of reading materials penned by white, male scholars in an effort to “eliminate the violence of only privileging white scholarship.” It’s one of several demands the “End Hate at ND” group has put forth recently. The group describes itself as “an initiative for organizing civil action against racist, xenophobic, sexist, trans-exclusionary, & queer-phobic structures at Notre Dame.” The protesters’ demands also include diversity trainings in dorms, an end…

How Texas Instruments Monopolized Math Class…$100 calculators have been required in classrooms for more than twenty years, as students and teachers still struggle to afford them

his fall, Stephen Thompson began his first year of teaching Algebra 2 and college prep classes to 11th and 12th graders at a public high school in northwest Baltimore. On top of the typical stress of any first-year teaching experience, Thompson realized that along with other out-of-pocket classroom expenses, he would have to buy a pricey piece of classroom equipment: graphing calculators. Specifically, Texas Instruments graphing calculators. “The students, for the most part, don’t have calculators,” he told me in October. “On a typical day, a lot of students don’t even have a pencil. It’s up to the teacher to…

SCIENCE teachers are told to tell students that all differences in the outcomes of people are due to bigotry and racism… it’s CONSENSUS!

Washington STEM, a nonprofit social justice organization focused on the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math in education, recently held a symposium where the group’s Impact Director, Jeneé Myers Twitchell, basically told a group of teachers that these four core areas of academics are “racist,” simply because “minorities” tend to underperform at them. The below visual slide depicts the message that Twitchell aimed to convey to her listening audience: mainly the notion that non-white people who fail to get the same high test scores as their white counterparts are always victims of “bigotry,” which Twitchell also defines with an…

Liberal Austin public schools now teaching anal sex to 3rd grade schoolchildren

The Austin Independent School District (AISD) in Texas has voted to implement a new pro-LGBTQP curriculum that includes teaching third-graders how to have anal sex. In a unanimous decision, the district’s board decided that the most “inclusive” path forward is to confuse children as young as eight into believing that male-female biology is “oppressive.” Further, these youth will now be told that they can pick any gender they’d like, and also put their reproductive organs wherever it feels good to them, including with the use of sex toys if it feels right. “Under the new curriculum, for the first time,…

Texas School District Mandates Transgender Education For 8-Year-Olds

A Texas school district board has unanimously approved a proposal to introduce transgender education for children as young as 8-years-old. The Austin Independent School District rubber stamped the new curriculum, which will for the first time will see students taught about “gender identity and sexual orientation.” “The lessons will also help kids identify an adult they can trust; plus talk to them about options if they get pregnant, and seventh graders would learn how to use a condom,” reports KXAN. The curriculum is being described as “controversial” given that it will teach children as young as eight about gay anal…

Drag queens who want access to your children linked to Satanism, occult practices

Men who dress as women love Halloween, and not just for the costuming opportunities. They are often keenly attuned to the dark spirits of the season and willing to do those spirits’ bizarre, depraved bidding. It’s one more reason to keep vulnerable children away from homosexual/gender indoctrination sessions, “drag” tutorials, and parents-excluded “safe sex” discussions at your local library. These wicked people are eagerly seducing and grooming children right under our eyes, if we let them. Drag queens are a scary presence for little kids. The young, mesmerized faces hearing the allegedly “inclusive” lessons and watching the sexual gyrations tell…

Biologically Male NCAA Runner Named Conference Female Athlete Of The Week

The Big Sky Conference named University of Montana runner June Eastwood, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, the cross-country female athlete of the week. “June Eastwood finished second in a field of 204 runners at the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational,” helping “Montana place seventh as a team,” the conference noted in its announcement Tuesday. Eastwood previously competed on the University of Montana’s men’s team. The University of Montana’s athletic director previously cited NCAA policy in explaining why Eastwood was competing on the women’s team. The NCAA allows male runners who identify as transgender women to compete in…

Oxford University Bans Clapping At Student Union Events To “Stop Triggering Anxiety”

What kind of grudge do British universities have against clapping? Roughly one year after the University of Manchester Student Union banned clapping at its events – choosing to instead ask audiences to use ‘jazz hands’ to show their appreciation for a performance – students at the University of Oxford are working to “replace clapping” because it could “trigger anxiety.” Like their peers in Manchester, they will ask audiences to use silent hand-wave motion called “jazz hands”. The motion to “mandate the encouragement of silent clapping” successfully passed in a vote taken by the school’s Student Union during their first meeting…

Special-Ed Students Are Secretly Being Restrained And Labeled “High-Level Threats”

Searchlight New Mexico’s disturbing report about threat assessments in the Albuquerque Public School (APS) system should serve as a wake-up call to everyone. The report reveals that schools across the country have been giving students threat assessments for at least twenty years. Which should come as no surprise to my readers. Three years ago, I wrote about the dangers of using threat assessments on pre-school kids all the way through college. What is happening in the APS system is enough to make even the most ardent supporter of threat assessments reconsider how schools use them. The report reveals how Agatha Cooper’s 7-year-old autistic…

Princeton Seminary To Pay $27M In Reparations For ‘Indirect’ Role In Slavery

In an unprecedented move, Princeton Theological Seminary has announced it will pay $27.6 million in reparations over the school’s historic involvement in slavery. An official statement described the reparations as an act of “repentance” which is the “beginning of the process of repair that will be ongoing,” according to Dean of Students John White. Founded under the auspices of Princeton University, the theological school has long been a distinct institution of the Presbyterian church, though they’ve had reciprocal relationship. t appears the first time an institution has agreed to a massive sum of millions for a merely ‘indirect’ role in slavery,…

NJ school district bans indebted students from prom and field trips, refuses offer to pay off lunch debt

America has a food insecurity problem, and poor, hungry kids who can’t pay their school cafeteria lunch debt are performatively ridiculed and humiliated by their schools. Despite this shaming, these kids parents refuse to stop being poor, and so schools are turning to desperate measures to provide the right incentives to these parents (meanwhile, kids from wealthy families are being offered front-of-the-line privileges in exchange for their parents’ “donations”). In Cherry Hill, NJ — a suburb of Philadelphia — students who can’t pay their lunchroom debts will be barred from attending prom or going on field trips or other after-school…

Pennsylvania School District Votes To Replace Locker Rooms With $2.4 Million Gender-Neutral Facilities

Gone are the days of boys fantasizing about sneaking into the girls locker room, at least in Eastern Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  That’s because the Eastern Lancaster County School District voted this past week to create non-gender specific facilities instead of traditional gender-specific locker rooms, according to Fox 29. The policy was unanimously passed on the first student day of the 2019-2020 school year. The $2.4 million plan for Garden Spot High School will include four “zones” that hold a total of 48 changing rooms and 76 private showers. The showers can also double as changing rooms, since they will be private, making a total of…

When the Quest for Education Equity Stifles Innovation

In March, efforts to open an innovative public high school in a diverse, urban district just outside of Boston received a devastating blow. Powderhouse Studios was in the works for seven years, with grand hopes of changing public education from a top-down system defined by coercion to a learner-driven model focused on student autonomy and self-determination. The vision for this school was so compelling that it won a $10 million XQ Super School innovation grant and was positioned to lead efforts to inject freedom into a conventional schooling system characterized by force. The school was set to open this fall…

Parents Are Rejecting Public School In Favor Of Homeschooling in Virginia

According to NBC29, Virginia’s state Department of Education reports that homeschooling is growing in the state. The number of homeschooling students grew by 20 percent in Virginia during the last five years. In Charlottesville, the number of students being homeschooled doubled during that time frame. Homeschooling parents claim that social media has facilitated teaching children at home. Additionally, social media has helped organizations such as the Community Homeschool Enrichment Center (CHEC) grow their ranks. “The more people who start homeschooling, the more other activities that create, the more classes in the community, the more social opportunities, so it kind of…

City Shuts Downs Preschoolers’ Farm Stand Citing Zoning Violations

It’s like something out of The Onion: city manager shuts down preschool farm stand out of fear that, if allowed, “we could end up with one on every corner.” Farm Stand Shut Down Alas, this is not satire. It’s the current predicament facing the Little Ones Learning Center in Forest Park, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta. In an area where access to fresh fruits and vegetables can be limited, this preschool has stepped up to prioritize growing and selling fresh produce from its school gardens. According to recent reporting in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Little Ones has often sold its produce…

The era of schoolchildren being forced to buy crappy $100 calculators is nearing its end

Whatever fond memories you might have of high school, Texas Instruments’ TI-84 is an obsolete piece of crap: a 1980s design updated to 1990s technology made with 2000s penny parts and sold for more than $100 a pop to children all but forced to buy them. TI is a notorious lobbyist and has sought laws big and small to maintain this status quo, from mandatory Algebra courses with mandatory TI-84s to examination rules that allow its devices and no others. But the racket is falling apart under pressure from superior alternatives and growing resentment among teachers and students. While tutoring…

Parents shocked as UK schools teach 6-10yo kids to touch their ‘private parts’ in beds & showers

Parents in Britain are outraged after more than 240 primary schools introduced lessons on “self-stimulation” for children as young as six as part of their sex education program. A teaching manual, published by the Mail on Sunday, instructs how to teach children aged six to ten about “the rules of self-stimulation.” The lessons are part of the new All About Me program rolled out in more than 240 primary schools in central England’s Warwickshire County. The program, in turn, is designed to be taught in accordance with the compulsory Relationship and Sex Education (RSE), which will be implemented all across…

De Blasio panel on public education: It’s “racist” to have gifted programs for smart kids; everyone must be equally dumbed down in the name of social justice

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio appointed a panel to determine whether public schools should get rid of “gifted” programs. These programs challenge and stimulate the minds of talented students who are ahead of their class. The mayor’s panel recommends that gifted programs be eliminated from all public schools because they are filled “mostly with white and Asian children.” New York Times reporter Eliza Shapiro blasted the panel for “alienating tens of thousands of mostly white and Asian families whose children are enrolled in the gifted programs and selective schools.” It turns out that if you’re smart and want to succeed…

Florida High School Principal Tells Kids the Holocaust Didn’t Happen

A high school principal in Palm Beach County, Florida, raised eyebrows when he was heard saying that he does not think that the Germans murdered 6 million Jews during the Holocaust in WWII. The fact came to light after a parent asked Spanish River High Principal William Latson how his school is teaching kids about World War Two history, according to the Palm Beach Post. The mother asked what the school is doing to teach about the Holocaust, and in reply, Latson insisted that the school does not push Holocaust history because “not everyone has the same belief” that it…

NYC Public Students Can Change Gender, Name Without Documentation

Students attending public schools in New York City will now be able to change their name and/or gender without any legal documents to back it up. Chancellor Richard Carranza announced the “most comprehensive and affirming” guidelines for supporting transgender and “gender expansive” students on June 28. The new rules still require students to get parental permission to make any changes, and will go into effect the coming school year, according to a NYC Department of Education press release. Carranza, whose tenure has come under fire recently for alleged anti-white racial discrimination, said the new guidelines are to “ensure that students’…

More than 100 NYC students defy odds to graduate while homeless

More than 100 New York City students were honored for graduating high school and getting accepted into college – all while living in homeless shelters. On Thursday night, the Department of Homeless Services saluted its students who are bound for college. Each student was gifted with a laptop and a duffel bag filled with freshman essentials. “They’re homeless because of the economics, the gap between rents and income,” NYC Social Services Commissioner Steven Banks said. Alexus Lawrence won a $2,000 scholarship for academic excellence. She’s her high school valedictorian and is heading to Brooklyn College – on the path to…

Two-thirds of American employees regret their college degrees

A college education is still considered a pathway to higher lifetime earnings and gainful employment for Americans. Nevertheless, two-thirds of employees report having regrets when it comes to their advanced degrees, according to a PayScale survey of 248,000 respondents this past spring that was released Tuesday. Student loan debt, which has ballooned to nearly $1.6 trillion nationwide in 2019, was the No. 1 regret among workers with college degrees. About 27% of survey respondents listed student loans as their top misgiving, PayScale said. The findings illustrate why education loans burdening millions of Americans have become a hot-button issue among some…

66% of US college grads regret their education, study finds

Nearly two thirds of US college graduates have serious regrets about their education, with many resentful of taking on huge student loan burdens or pursuing worthless humanities degrees, a recent survey has found. More than a quarter of college graduates with at least a Bachelor’s degree regretted taking out unaffordable student loans more than anything else, according to Payscale’s online salary survey, conducted in April and May and published on Tuesday. Millennials were especially rueful of their poor financial choices, though Generation X came in a close second, and even some Baby Boomer respondents fingered debt as the source of…

‘Major distraction’: school dumps iPads, returns to paper textbooks

Many schools have switched to digital textbooks. But one school in Sydney, Australia has returned to the tried and true hard copy textbooks – which reduce distractions and improve comprehension – and have given the e-book the boot from the classroom. Reddam House’s primary and junior high school classes have used e-textbooks on iPad’s for the past five years, and teachers have consistently heard from students that they actually prefer books over screens. Teachers also felt the ipads were distracting and did nothing to strengthen students’ skills in technology. Soon after the school announced they were getting rid of digital…

Elizabeth Warren to introduce bill to ‘cancel’ student debt for millions (keep dreaming, political propaganda)

Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren – a 2020 presidential candidate – intends to bring her plan to “cancel” student debt Opens a New Window. for millions of Americans to Congress Opens a New Window. . Warren’s office said on Thursday she will introduce a bill, similar to what she proposed as part of her presidential platform, in Congress. Rep. James Clayburn, D-S.C., will introduce companion legislation in the House. The text of the bill has not yet been released, but she said it would eliminate up to $50,000 in student loan debt for 42 million Americans – canceling debt entirely for…

‘I had to escape this debtors’ prison’: College grad flees U.S. to avoid student loan debt

Eventually, he just couldn’t take it anymore. The rejection, the depression, the mounting bills, it became too much to deal with all on his own, Chad Albright said.  “I had to escape this debtors’ prison,” he said — it felt like there was no other choice. “That’s what America became to me, a prison. So I left.” Albright bought a one-way ticket to China and boarded an airplane, uncertain if he would ever return to the country he once considered home. It was 2011, and Albright was 30 years old, starting over in a country more than 7,000 miles away from his life…

Extended Childhood: The New American Way

Resilience. It’s one of the latest buzzwords in society, especially when it comes to raising children, explains Richard Godwin in The Guardian. But teaching resilience is a bit challenging these days, Godwin implies, especially when kids are raised in the traditional education system which “encourages children to see their worth in terms of grades achieved, hoops jumped and boxes ticked.” Such a system keeps young people dependent, safe, and micromanaged – a form of perpetual childhood. Godwin speaks concerning the U.K. education system, but many say the same of education in the U.S. However, this was not always the case.…

Teacher Hands A Non-Verbal Autistic Student The ‘Most Annoying Male’ Of The Year Award

Anybody who’s ever spent time around a child with special needs knows such individuals can, at times, exhibit unusual or even disruptive behavior that’s typically best addressed with patience and thoughtfulness. Arguably the worst way to deal with such a child is to publicly embarrass or shame them for their behavior in front of their peers and elders. But that appears to be exactly what a teacher in Indiana did to an 11-year-old fifth-grader with autism. The father of the student at Bailey Preparatory Academy, a public school in Gary, Indiana, said he was shocked beyond disbelief when his son’s…

Virginia Tech Offers 10 Different Graduation Ceremonies for Black, LGBT, Asian Students

Virginia Tech offered ten separate graduation ceremonies this year for different student groups based on identity. Virginia Tech hosted ten separate graduation ceremonies for students based on their identity. In May, the university held separate ceremonies for Black, Asian, Latino, Muslim, and LGBTQ students. Breitbart News reported in May that many American colleges offer separate graduation ceremonies for Black students. The College Fix reported this week that Virginia Tech is one of many universities that have adopted separate ceremonies for student groups based on identity. For example, The Donning of Kente Ceremony is held to commemorate the graduation of Black…

Schools Are Deploying Massive Digital Surveillance Systems. The Results Are Alarming

Last December, early on a Sunday morning, Amanda Lafrenais tweeted about her cats. “I would die for you,” the 31-year old comic book artist from Clute, Texas wrote. To human eyes, the post seems innocuous. But in an age of heightened fear about mass school shootings, it tripped invisible alarms. The local Brazosport Independent School District had recently hired a company called Social Sentinel to monitor public posts from all users, including adults, on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms. The company’s algorithms flagged Lafrenais’s tweet as a potential threat. Automated alerts were sent to the district’s superintendent, chief…

Since some children find letter grades “offensive,” public school teachers are now grading with “colors, numbers and symbols”

It’s every young person’s dream come true: no more grades in school! Because some students are apparently getting “offended” or having their feelings hurt by receiving Bs on their tests instead of As, public schools in Wisconsin are reportedly abandoning the traditional grading system in favor of assigning students “colors” and “symbols” instead. This newfangled “target-based grading system,” as they’re calling it, means that the days of using actual metrics to determine student scholarship are over. Now, random images and pretty colors will govern public education. “On a test a student no longer gets a 88 percent,” says Garth Larson,…

The decline of trust in science (climate change & vaccines) “terrifies” former Globalist educator

If an asteroid were spotted hurtling toward Earth, we wouldn’t be arguing over whether asteroids exist. But that’s basically what the politicization of science has done to the public discussion about climate change, says former MIT president Susan Hockfield. “I understand that people might debate the fine points of climate change, but the fact is that the best science indicates that we’re in trouble,” Hockfield said on the latest episode of Recode Decode with Kara Swisher, adding, “It’s simply folly to my mind not to step up and invent the technologies that are going to prevent us from the ravages…

Debt-Laden Americans Flee Country To Escape Crushing Student Loans

Faced with crushing student loans and little ability to repay them, some Americans have taken to fleeing the country in order to escape their debt, according to CNBC‘s Annie Nova. “It’s kind of like, if a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it, does it really exist?” said 29-year-old Chad Haag, who relocated from Colorado to a jungle in India to avoid paying his $20,000 loan balance. “I’ve put America behind me,” said Haag – 9,000 miles away from home. Today he lives in a concrete house in the village of Uchakkada for $50 a month. His backyard is filled with…

200 private schools have closed in Michigan in the last decade

Private schools in Michigan are disappearing, closing their doors at a rate of about two per month over the last decade.  Religious schools make up the majority, but nonreligious schools, preschools, Montessori schools and others have closed as well. In all, more than 200 private schools have closed since 2009, according to data from the Michigan’s Center for Educational Performance and Information. “The school-age population has shrunk and the economics of it have been really difficult,” said Brian Broderick, executive director of the Michigan Association of Non-Public Schools, which represents almost 400 Catholic, Lutheran and Christian schools across the state. Last year, about 112,000…

Profiles of young Americans who entered voluntary exile rather than paying their student loans

CNBC profiles a small handful of young Americans who have moved abroad and ceased payments on their student debt, relying on international borders to protect them from their edu-creditors. It’s not clear how many young Americans have gone this route. That said, the story is fascinating, since — as an expert in the story says — this is effectively permanent exile. Once you stop paying your student loan, your lenders get to add penalties and compound interest on the penalties, then add more penalties and compound even more interest. Walk away from those debts and they will balloon to the…

As a GMO Stunt, Professor Tasted Pesticide and Gave it To Students

Imagine you are an undergraduate attending an Ivy League university. You go to a routine department seminar. In the middle of his presentation the professor picks up a container from the lectern. He says it contains a pesticide. As he opens it, a faint cloud of brown powder rises from the tub. It is, says he, “very safe”. Then he digs his finger into the container and tastes some of the contents. He offers it to a man in the front row, who twice refuses it. Walking back to the centre of the room, the professor looks towards you and…

Oregon Elementary School Teacher Tried to Convince 8-Year-Old Student He’s Transgender

It doesn’t get much crazier than this. According to KPTV-TV, an Oregon elementary school teacher tried to convince an 8-year-old student that he was transgender. The schoolteacher did this without involving the parents. The result? The boy is now aggressive, depressed, and confused. The teacher at Nellie Muir Elementary School in Woodburn targeted the boy for transgender indoctrination when he started using the staff restroom after a stomach issue made him feel uncomfortable about using the boys’ toilet. The teacher took the 8-year-old aside, spoke shortly to him, and then proceeded to share all kinds of transgender literature and videos…

Universities nationwide remove historical artwork deemed offensive

Censorship on university campuses targets historic figures A major nationwide trend on campuses is the removal of historic artwork depicting prominent figures or scenes that are deemed offensive or racist by today’s standards. The censorship is getting wider in scope. Controversial historical figures like Christopher Columbus and Woodrow Wilson have consistently drawn student outrage and protest, as have Confederate monuments, but other more beloved figures like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are also beginning to attract controversy. There are many examples in recent years of universities removing or censoring artwork that has been accused of being derogatory, disrespectful, hurtful or racist,…

10 Colleges Where You Won’t Have To Walk on Eggshells

In recent years, dangerous trends and ideas about speech have been spilling from academia into the world beyond campus. Walking on eggshells, exercising extreme caution about respecting taboos, reporting colleagues for jokes overheard, and deflecting substantive arguments with ad hominem counterattacks may soon be common features of corporate and community life. College-bound students who want to master those skills can choose from a wide range of America’s top schools. But perhaps you (and your kids) would prefer a different kind of academic culture: one that exposes students to a variety of views, teaches them skills of critical thinking so they…

5 Controversial Books That Teach You How to Manipulate People

It’s not bad to study how to manipulate people. We study plenty of things that you shouldn’t do: war, crime, genocide. Understanding how these things happen is key to avoiding them in the future. We need to study manipulation to make sure others cannot wield that power over us. That is why no information should be off limits. Learning how to accomplish evil deeds allows us to prevent ourselves from becoming the victims, or tools, of evildoers. There’s a reason rulers banned the printing press and burned books. They considered knowledge dangerous… because it is. It is dangerous to those…

Sexuality textbook suggests students take ‘field trip’ to preschools to observe potential ‘sexual interactions’

Unclear if schools, parents would be notified of visit A college textbook that explores human sexuality suggests that instructors take their students on “field trips” to local preschools and elementary schools to observe possible “sexual interactions” between students there. The textbook is part of a course titled “Psychology and Sexual Behavior” offered at the University of North Texas. That course made headlines last week when the news website Big League Politics reported on it, specifically what appeared to be a presentation in the course exploring “sexual pleasure and response in infants.” Big League Politics reported that it obtained a copy of a…

California Professor Says a Fetus is a ‘Parasite’ that is ‘Just Like Cancer’

UPDATE: The professor of the course, as well as the school, reportedly responded to coverage of the slide.  “Most of you probably realize that my point was to show that mammals are especially prone to invasive cancers because mammals evolved invasive placentation,” the professor said in an email to students, according to a student, Fox News reported. “My point was not to indoctrinate you with the notion that fetuses are cancers, as insinuated in the article.” The university also released a statement, saying, “the slide presents common, widely accepted scientific concepts and in no way represents a political statement,” Fox…

Prof with history of anti-white comments now says ‘whiteness is terrorism’

A Trinity College professor is in hot water after tweeting “whiteness is terrorism.”  Professor of Sociology Johnny Eric Williams followed that tweet with another saying, “all self-identified white people (no exceptions) are invested in and collude with systematic white racism/white supremacy.” The professor has since made his account private but the tweets can be seen on The Hartford Courant. [RELATED: Prof calls whites ‘inhuman assholes,’ says ‘let them die’] Williams also called out former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama. According to the Hartford Courant, he said, “I’m referring to [Turning Point USA leader Candace Owens’] other and less…

Students are now being expelled from schools in America for not having the “correct” views on transgenderism

The LGBT Mafia has claimed yet another child victim, this time in Connecticut where a sophomore in high school was recently expelled from his school for the “crime” of disagreeing with the transgender agenda. According to reports, Michael Mancini, who had previously attended Cheshire Academy, located south of Hartford, was relentlessly “scrutinized and tormented” on campus simply for expressing his “politically incorrect” views about gender dysphoria – and this, despite claims by school staff that the Academy fosters a “fair and open-minded environment.” After being recruited back in July 2018 to play on the Academy’s football team, Mancini was suspended…

Wake Forest University hosts no-whites-allowed faculty and staff listening sessions — to promote inclusivity

Wake Forest University is hosting a series of “listening sessions” for faculty and staff of color that aim to advance inclusion efforts on campus. The listening sessions come amid ongoing racial tensions on campus, including a protest Monday at which some students decried the “white supremacy” that allegedly runs rampant at the private, North Carolina institution. “Dear faculty and staff colleagues, this is a reminder about our upcoming listening sessions on inclusion that I am holding for faculty and staff of color over the next several weeks,” stated an April 18 email from Michele Gillespie, dean of the college, to…

New High School US History Textbook Book Paints President Trump And His Supporters As Racists While Extolling The Virtues Of Hillary Clinton

The new Advanced Placement U.S. History book is under fire across America for, among other scandals, portraying President Donald Trump’s supporters as ignorant old racists. The Liberal Left not only controls the media and the nightly news, but they control what textbooks are used in the our public school system. One of those books, entitled By The People: A History of the United States, portrays Donald Trump as angry racist whose racist followers elected him into office. By comparison, Hillary Clinton, for whom the Clinton Dead Pool is named, is portrayed as a sweet, all-american old-fashioned politician who just wants…

No More Mondays. Colorado School District Moves to 4 Day Weeks

Say it isn’t so! A number of school districts have begun switching to a four day school week. While some children dream of snow days and holidays to shorten their school weeks, thousands of students can now celebrate having one less day of school each week. Hundreds of school districts across the country have adopted a four day school week in hopes of preserving funds while also attracting teachers to the area. It’s estimated that approximately 560 districts within 25 states are allowing a Monday through Thursday week. (1) While funding and enticing quality teachers to districts are among the…

UC terminates subscriptions with world’s largest scientific publisher in push for open access to publicly funded research

As a leader in the global movement toward open access to publicly funded research, the University of California is taking a firm stand by deciding not to renew its subscriptions with Elsevier. Despite months of contract negotiations, Elsevier was unwilling to meet UC’s key goal: securing universal open access to UC research while containing the rapidly escalating costs associated with for-profit journals. In negotiating with Elsevier, UC aimed to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery by ensuring that research produced by UC’s 10 campuses — which accounts for nearly 10 percent of all U.S. publishing output — would be immediately…

Georgetown students may pay reparations for slavery with new student fee

UPDATED ‘We recognize the great privileges we have been given, and wish to at least partially repay our debts’ Georgetown University students will soon vote on whether they want to tax themselves to benefit the descendants of slaves sold by the university in the 1830s. Its student government recently authorized a campuswide student referendum on whether to establish a fund for the families of the 272 men, women and children sold by Georgetown in 1838. If approved, the semesterly fee would begin to be collected in the fall of 2020 and start at $27.20 per student “in honor of the 272 people…

Home Depot Co-Founder Bernie Marcus: Socialism ‘Comes Right Out Of The Universities’

Home Depot billionaire co-founder Bernie Marcus said Friday that the growing appeal to socialism in America comes out of the universities. Marcus, during an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, discussed the deterioration of socialist Venezuela and Cuba, comparing the situations in those countries today with the realities there decades ago, pre-socialist rule. Marcus called the economic downturns in each of those countries, Cuba, in particular, a “perfect example of socialism gone wrong.” “They [Cuba] took a great country. They put it right down the drain in every way possible,” Marcus said. “People are starving to death. Medical [care] is…

Connecticut may require ‘climate change’ education starting in elementary school – First state to require it

A legislative proposal in Connecticut would mandate instruction on climate change in public schools statewide, beginning in elementary school. Connecticut already has adopted science standards that call for teaching of climate change, but if the bill passes it is believed that it would be the country’s first to write such a requirement into law. “A lot of schools make the study of climate change an elective, and I don’t believe it should be an elective,” said state Rep. Christine Palm, a Democrat from Chester who proposed the bill. “I think it should be mandatory, and I think it should be…

A sizable donation by tech billionaire Elon Musk will provide Flint Community Schools with the funds to purchase laptops for all seventh and eighth-grade students in the district.

Boston school under fire for using electric shocks on severely disabled children

An international body entrusted with upholding human rights across the Americas has called for an immediate ban on the controversial use of electric shocks on severely disabled children in a school outside Boston. The Judge Rotenberg Center in Canton, Massachusetts, is believed to be the only school in the world that routinely inflicts high-powered electric shocks as a form of punishment on vulnerable children and adults. About 47 of its students are currently subjected to the “treatment”, which involves individuals being zapped with electric currents far more powerful than those discharged by stun guns. Disability rights campaigners have tried for…

US Student Loan Debt Hits Record $1,460,000,000,000

It’s been almost a year since the Republican Party and President Donald Trump delivered their behemoth giveaway to the nation’s corporations and wealthiest individuals by passing a $1.5 trillion controversial tax bill that will ultimately blow a $5 trillion hole—or larger—in the nation’s budget. On Monday morning, Bloomberg reported that the amount of U.S. student loan debt has more than doubled since 2009 and now sits at a record $1.47 trillion.

America’s universities little more than training grounds for the next generation of thought police

Colleges were once places of scholarly pursuits, but the educational institutions of the United States have fallen prey to the authoritarian Left’s political agenda. Now, universities are nothing more than “training grounds” for the leftist regime — and the youth of today are being indoctrinated, set to become the thought police of tomorrow. College students today are increasingly intolerant of speech that they dislike, claiming they’ve been “offended” every time someone expresses an opinion contrary to their own. While polling data shows that college kids like the idea of free speech, surveys also show that as soon as that speech…

School District hires collection agency to recover unpaid student lunch balances

Rhode Island’s Cranston School District hired a collection agency to recover unpaid student lunch balances. In a letter to parents, Raymond Votto Jr., chief operating officer of Cranston Public Schools, said the district has previously tried to collect outstanding lunch bills “without much success.” “In an effort to reduce our unpaid balance, the District has retained the services of a collection agency. The company is Transworld Systems and they will begin their collection efforts effective January 2, 2019,” the letter said. Votto said between September 1, 2016 and June 30, 2018, the school district wrote off $95,508. He said the…

25 Basic Life Skills That Should Be Taught in School….But Aren’t

Editor’s Note: I know lots of you are homeschool parents. But please accept before reading this article that many kids are sent to public schools for a wide variety of reasons. Please do not turn this into an argument about homeschooling vs. public schooling or an insult festival toward parents who send their kids to school. That’s not productive. Let’s talk about what is taught vs. what is missing. And also, keep in mind that school is the only chance that some children have to learn new ideas because their parents are either disinterested or close-minded. While most of us…

Student Loan Servicer Steered Some Borrowers To Higher-Cost Plans

One of the companies that handles federal student loans has been steering some borrowers toward repayment plans that cost them more money over time. That’s the finding of a report that the Department of Education’s Office of Federal Student Aid did on Navient, one of its loan servicers. But while FSA offered suggestions for improving some of Navient’s practices, it says the company didn’t necessarily do anything wrong. The report had not been released publicly. So Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts did, providing it to The Associated Press and posting it online Tuesday. The report is dated May 2017. A…

3 flaws of the modern education system and how to change it

The modern education system is failing and needs help. That’s the bitter truth. And even though the world has branded it as “modern education system,”  it still won’t change the fact that it’s outdated, stagnant and needs a radical transformation. Closely examine big corporations that have been in existence for over a century or so, do they still offer the same product or manufacture products as they did many years ago? The answer is no. If they are, they wouldn’t be able to satisfy the demands of customers in the present market. And according to an individual that offers help…

College entrance test scores collapse across America as dumbed-down liberal education system teaches “social justice” instead of thinking skills

The group behind the ACT college entrance examination is reporting that test scores for the Class of 2018 have reached their lowest levels in decades, suggesting that the leftist-contaminated public education system is now in total free fall mode. According to The Condition of College and Career Readiness 2018, the ACT group’s annual report, this year’s graduating class performed especially poorly in math, though scores were admittedly dismal in the other categories as well. All in all, American students appear to have been dumbed down to their lowest level yet – and this could just be the beginning. “The percentage…

‘Long Time, No See’ Is Racist Against Asians, Colorado State Warns Students

“It has gotten to the point where students should carry around a dictionary of words they cannot say.” Administrators at Colorado State University have apparently deemed the saying “Long time, no see” to be non-inclusive language. Student Katrina Leibee ​reported in an op-ed for the campus newspaper that the common greeting appeared on a list of taboo phrases that she was shown by the student association’s director of diversity and inclusion, Zahra Al-Saloom. According to Leibee, the phrase was included on the list because it was seen as “derogatory toward those of Asian descent” and thus contrary to the university’s commitment to fostering inclusion. Leibee said that the university…

9 Years Into Common Core, Test Scores Are Down, Indoctrination Up

It’s been about nine years since the Obama administration lured states into adopting Common Core sight unseen, with promises it would improve student achievement. Like President Obama’s other big promises — “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” — this one’s been proven a scam. “If you set and enforce rigorous and challenging standards and assessments; if you put outstanding teachers at the front of the classroom; if you turn around failing schools — your state can win a Race to the Top grant that will not only help students outcompete workers around the world, but let…

Left-Wing Fiat of Academia: Ohio Prof Sues Over Required Use of LGBTQ Pronouns

A professor at Shawnee State University claimed that the institution’s gender identity policy concerning transgender students that demands to refer to students by their preferred gender pronoun contradicts his religious beliefs and violates his 1st-Amendment rights. A philosophy professor from Ohio-based Shawnee State University, Nicholas Meriwether, sued the public institution on Monday following an incident involving a biologically male transgender student, who requested to be referred to by the female pronouns, as regulated by the school’s gender pronoun policy. “They demand this even though the concept of gender identity is entirely subjective and fluid, even though the number of potential gender identities is infinite,” Meriwether stated in his lawsuit, filed…

US Universities Have Taken Over $614,000,000 From Saudi Arabia Since 2011

This explains a great deal, for it is not only true that “these gifts and contracts, in some instances, are intended to influence students’ and faculty experts’ views on the kingdom”; it is also true that these gifts and contracts are intended to influence students’ and faculty experts’ views on Islam, jihad and Sharia. Georgetown University isn’t even on the lists below, but Saudi money funds its Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, and its Bridge Initiative, both of which are dedicated to giving the fictions that Islam is a religion of peace and Sharia is benign and compatible with…
