    ( - The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

    Once upon a time, American schools were something to be proud of, with high expectations and students who – by some accounts – graduated high school with what is now the equivalent of two years of college under their belts. Most schools were under local control and were highly responsive to parents. Today all that has changed. We rank 36th on the world stage. Despite spending on average $12,000 per student per year, public education has become a joke. Why? There are endless reasons, but I’ll give two. One, public education does not permit competition among schools. Journalist and columnist...

    The murder of 17 innocent high school students in Parkland, Florida reminds us that public schools are dangerous. Too dangerous for children. Yet there are pro-public school ideologues who refuse to face the facts. They shut their eyes to reality. They spout their slogan: "Public schools don't kill public school students. Killers kill public school students." We have heard this for 50 years. Yet the killers are always one of these: (1) enrolled public school students, (2) public school graduates, or (3) expelled public school students. It's time to turn a deaf ear on the refrain about public schools not...

    Why would a school district choose a social activism group and ask their kids to support it? Instead of just observing black history month for February, Prince George's County schools in Maryland are going all-in and supporting activist group Black Lives Matter this week, reports Fox 5 DC. Students will have opportunities before, during, and after school for activities and discussions and are being encouraged, for example, to wear all black.  Some support the idea and others don't. Joshua Omolola, a Parkdale High School student said "We start this conversation in schools because for many people and for many students, this is...

    A public school district in Minnesota is taking a radical social justice approach to the education of their youngest children. Young students in the Edina School District in Edina, Minnesota, will be introduced to the concept of “white privilege” as early as kindergarten, according to a new report from the Weekly Standard. The report details some of the unusual practices of the district. As a result, the school system’s obsession with “white privilege” now begins in kindergarten. At Edina’s Highlands Elementary School, for example, K-2 students participate in the Melanin Project. The children trace their hands, color them to reflect...

    Ithaca High School’s spring musical was “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” A story whose message is one of inclusiveness and acceptance should be welcomed and encouraged. A white actress was cast for the role of Esmerelda, prompting a student black actress to quite the play, saying, “It shows you that theater wasn’t made for you. And it shows you that, if you can’t get the parts that are written for you, what parts are you going to get?” The resignation prompted Students United Ithaca to make a list of demands for the school, one of which was, “STOP the racist...
