Posted on 01/18/2014 9:25:43 AM PST by absentee
In New York, a bill has been proposed by Democrat Assemblywoman Margaret Markey that would require all public school students to undergo mental health exams, more than once, in order to attend.
Loesch points out how this fits into a larger picture that is forming with Common Core requirements and various state legislatures across the country. Schools are collecting information such as parental political affiliations, firearm ownership, religious affiliations, and other forms of data mining. She also poses the important question of who would pay for this. Is it going to be yet another financial burden for low and middle income families imposed by the busybody state?
Interference in the family unit and absolute disregard for privacy are becoming de rigeur in America on two fronts. We have the safety and security minded, hoping to prevent tragedy though screening, and we have the we know whats best crowd, creating a better tomorrow by shrinking soda sizes, seizing sodium, and generally aiming to clothe Americans in the bubble wrap of a federal government thats just looking out for their best interests.

How about for the teachers?
Mental exams for Democracks would be a good idea.
Loesch points out how this fits into a larger picture that is forming with Common Core. Parents wake up NAZI common core is the ability to recruit your children to spy on you and your personel business
The shrink lobby is behind this.
I dunknow, it seems you would have to be insane to willingly go to a NY public skewl.
The Marxists in the Gov-Education complex are slowly taking away our rights and freedoms. WAKE up America.
Most states require a written approval by the parents to do this.
Insanity is an absolute prerequisite to live in New York!
It seems the only group allowed to be “profiled” will be young students? In truth, profiling could be a good thing, what if someone, (other than his clueless/pathologically permissive mom) had “profiled” Adam Lanza? It’s a can of worms, however, because many kids are screwballs when teens, but perhaps the really gonzo ones like Lanza could at least be found? But then the absurdity of the “no profiling” crap w/regards to terrorists juxtaposed to this is glaring.
Yeah! You will have to prove you are crazy in order to attend the school....
Heh heh heh heh heh
What a crazy concept. This ought to be just laughed away to shame, IMHO. Getting in high dudgeon gives it more seriousness than it deserves. GENERALLY it works better to see if someone actually ACTS crazy before being concerned whether the person IS crazy. This would be a jackpot for the screening people. Big makework project. Aside from the ethical issues.
Well, that's encouraging. In the mean time it's like playing that street game, three shells and a pea, in trying to find the winning school/state that doesn't violate the rights of the parent.
Great link, Slings and Arrows.
Orang County, CA has had mental Heath exams and treatment for Special Ed students for at least 25 years. Some students actually are actually observed at school on a monthly basis by social workers and county mental health workers. They also offer counseling to parents and family members to help in coping with difficult students. It’s a good program, but it should be extended to include all students.
No it's not.
Another reason for the separation of School and State.
Just wait for “sluggish schizophrenia” diagnoses to appear. The carard was created by the Soviet Union, and at the time no one outside of the Soviet Bloc recognized it.
"By psychopolitics our chief goals are effectively carried forward. To produce a maximum of chaos in the culture of the enemy is our first most important step. Our fruits are grown in chaos, distrust, economic depression and scientific turmoil.... With it you can erase our enemies as insects... Use the courts, use the judges, use the Constitution of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to further our ends.... create chaos. Leave a nation leaderless. Kill our enemies. And bring to Earth, through Communism, the greatest peace Man has ever known...." -- Lavrentii Beria, Lenin University, in a 1933 address to a group of American/Marxist Psychology Students.
Let's hope they have what it takes to block what's coming.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
This one is so bad, that it deserves to have both lists pinged.
Homeschoolers need to know what they're missing out on. IOW, what they're protecting their children from.
It hasn’t done us any good up to this point...
The idea of mandatory psychiatric examinations for schoolchildren, or something similar to it, is and was routine in totalitarian regimes like the USSR, and was used as a tool to detect dissidents and dissident families, who would suffer nightmarish consequences.
Got it in one.
Thanks. When it comes to bad ideas, Ecclesiastes 1:9 nails it.
Take this together with Andrew Cuomo’s statement that there is no room in NY for pro-life people, and you get a clear picture of what is going on.
Who said the Holocaust could never happen again? History repeats itself over and over again when people fail to learn from the past.
Oh how easy this is for them. Mental Health Exams for kids to attend school...and if they ain’t quite right in the head according to the government?
Wow...the ramifications of our kids losing their protected Rights is incredible!
Suddenly there’s a whole generation of kids with mental health issues/records that follow them into adulthood. Too disturbed to vote, own a gun, have free speech, ....WOW!
By declaring all the students as mentally unstable you can have total gun control plus all kinds of other stuff.
Looking for latent conservatism, in order to “cure” it.
Democrat Assemblywoman Margaret “Malarkey” Markey is one creepy totalitarian...
So many dems are nowadays...
It seems like Roberts' sanctioning of the government's forcing of people to purchase a product has gone to the next step.
Local governments are now emboldened to force their citizenry to do all sorts of things against their wishes.
Yeah, do the staff first.
Margaret Markey is married to a NYC judge.
Welcome to a redo of Germany in the 1930’s. Never Again? Think Again.
Exactly, plus other items that could likely be on the school psychologist's check list. Anything politically incorrect could be cause for the child and/or his parents to undergo "re-education," and if that fails...well, there's always a new FEMA(?) facility not that far away which will provide dissidents with food and shelter, if they're lucky.
It's happened before: think USSR, China, North Korea, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, etc., etc.
News flash: They give the tests. They determine who is “normal” and who is an insane right wing, gun owning, bitter clinger.
Don’t SAT tests, etc already do that?
Re “Insanity is an absolute prerequisite to live in New York!”
For many,yes. Others are trapped there because they inherited a house that they cannot either sell or want to leave (so it can stay in the family. My friend is in exactly that situation).
However, it looks like the Left “trained” enough low education, no-education, welfare addicts and liberal assholes (not to mention the major number of reds of all types who live and operate there), to get Sandinista marxist supporter DeBlasio elected mayor (his wife is now the City’s First Marxist Lady), and the new head of the City Council is a Puerto Rican marxist woman.
The Nazis had nothing on the Communists. All they did was shout louder, monopolize the mainstream media, and harass or kill their real or imagined opponents.
Reminds me of someone and some Party presently in control of our country, in DC. Can’t think of their names right now but it is in the vicinity of “D” and “O” in the alphabet. It’ll come to me, maybe before they march me off to some “mental health clinic”, just like my relatives in Austria were marched off to a “health facility” named Auschwitz for “showers in the 1940’s.
Why do I feel like I’ve seen this scenario before?
“Knock! Knock! Knock!”
...while charging you a fee
Just remember that leftists consider conservatism a mental illness http://reason.com/archives/2004/10/20/pathologizing-conservatism
Indeed. And expect renewed government interest in the returns of any certifiably conservative kids.
How about mandatory mental exams for politicians?
So who is going to do a mental exam on those doing the mental exams? Psychiatrists and psychologists aren’t known as the most stable members of society.
They will use the information from the children to spy on the parents!
Okay folks...Reason #388 that public schools are toast, and can never be reclaimed.
