    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- When you think of felony forgery your thoughts might turn to Al Capone or Bonnie and Clyde shooting it out with the Texas Rangers. Not for some local school cops. For one day, public enemy number one when it came to forgery was 13-year-old eighth grader Danesiah Neal at Fort Bend Independent School District's Christa McAuliffe Middle School. Now 14, Daneisha was hoping to eat that day's lunch of chicken tenders with her classmates using a $2 bill given to her by her grandmother when she was stopped by the long arm of the law. "I went...

    The Family Policy Institute of Washington tried an experiment on gender ideology at a college campus, and came back with surprising results. In a video published last week, the Institute shows journalist Joseph Backholm visiting the University of Washington campus and asking a number of students questions about gender and self-identity. Their answers reveal how deeply ingrained gender ideology has become in the mindset of today's college students. Starting with the simple question, "If I told you that I was a woman, what would you say?" Backholm received the almost unanimous response that he'd be accepted as a woman. He...

    The overdose reversing Naloxone is now in all Cabell County schools. The Huntington Office of Drug Control Policy asked the school system if they wanted the Naloxone for free. The Cabell County Huntington Health Department then trained the school nurses. Robin Yearout has been a school nurse for more than 25 years and is used to the things school nurses usually deal with. "Upper respiratory issues going on, allergies, seasonal allergies," she listed. When she first became a school nurse administering something like Naloxone was not something on her mind.

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) A Virginia high school discriminated against a transgender teen by forbidding him from using the boys' restroom, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday in a case that could have implications for a North Carolina law that critics say discriminates against LGBT people. The case of Gavin Grimm has been especially closely watched since North Carolina enacted a law last month that bans transgender people from using public restrooms that correspond to their gender identity. That law also bans cities from passing anti-discrimination ordinances, a response to an ordinance recently passed in Charlotte. In the Virginia case,...

    Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's proposal this week to eliminate education cost-sharing grants for 28 of the state's wealthiest school districts and to reduce funding significantly for many others was intensely criticized Wednesday by some school officials and key legislators. Malloy's plan calls for protecting the education funds in the state's 30 lowest-performing school districts. "To take a district like mine and completely eliminate the funding is entirely irresponsible," Madison Superintendent Thomas Scarice said. The district stands to lose $1.57 million. Taken together with the state's "countless unfunded mandates" for districts, Scarice said, Malloy's proposal is "nothing less than unspeakable."...

Stanley Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, and William Estrada, director of federal relations at the Home School Legal Defense Association, highlighted the problems with Common Core. Estrada wrote, "Common Core is good for homeschooling. He pointed out in 2009, there were 850,000 homeschooled students in the U.S. By 2012, the Department of Education found that there were 1.8 million homeschooled students. As you can see, the growth in homeschooling tracks nicely with...

A school guidance counselor who helped a 15-year-old girl get judicial approval for an abortion without telling her parents shouldn't have lost her job, the state's highest court ruled Thursday. Demetria McKaig's contract at Farmington High School was not renewed in April 2013, four months after she blocked her principal from telling the girl's parents about the pregnancy. A majority of Supreme Court justices said McKaig should be reinstated, but in a dissent, Justice Robert Lynn accused his colleagues of ignoring legal principles because the case involved a hot-button issue.

The individuals included 12 current or former DPS principals and an assistant superintendent. The U.S. attorney alleges that the DPS administrators submitted fake invoices to the school district for payments to a vendor for services that were never delivered.

The vendor received $2.7 million over that time, of which $908,518 was kicked back to...

    The first schools, the first great universities, were focused on knowledge: figuring out what it is, collecting and verifying it, and passing it on from teachers to students. Our K-12 schools have drifted far away from this ideal. Knowledge itself is disparaged. The transmission of knowledge is sneered at. These shifts are huge and destructive, and they are by design. Consider what any real school looks like: judo schools, medical schools, language schools, flight schools, bartending schools, flower-arranging schools. All possess a body of knowledge they strive to give to the next generation. That's not what our public schools are...

That is, according to a powerful new documentary that’s exposing what producers say is a “deceptive agenda” behind sex-ed programs being pushed not only in schools across the globe, but also by multiple United Nations entities and government bodies. ...

Supreme Court Judge Alice Schlesinger blasted the city Department of Education, saying it apparently used evidence sealed after teacher Claudia Tillery was acquitted in a criminal trial. “I do agree that a teacher having a relationship with a 12-year-old boy, or a girl, is way, way, way beyond acceptable,” Schlesinger said in a hearing ​last ​week. “But they had no authority to unseal a sealed record.” Tillery, who taught at...

Apparently the establishment wing of the Republican Party just cannot help itself when it comes to surrendering to Obama -- even on so-called "education" and the minds of America's future generations. In what is being touted by the establishment press as a bipartisan move, seven GOP senators, all elected to stop Obama, joined forces with Democrats on Monday to confirm the deeply unpopular pro-Common Core nominee for U.S. education secretary, extremist John...

State legislators are considering a bill that would specifically open all public restrooms, shower facilities, and locker rooms to transgender people. "An Act Relative to Gender Identity and Non-Discrimination" (H.B. 1577) would add "gender identity" to the state's protected classes able to access all public facilities, such as private changing areas. Lawmakers specifically exempted "lawfully sex-segregated facilities" when it passed a 2011 ordinance granting transgender people protected legal...

More importantly, the bill bans schools from using educational material from any abortion services provider, including Planned Parenthood, which claims it is currently providing education to more than 2,000 children in Alaska. Naturally, Planned Parenthood took exception to the bill along with a companion bill which lays out penalties for violation...

    Ed Boland stepped out of a twenty-year career as a nonprofit executive to teach in a tough inner city school on Manhattan's Lower East Side. His idealism was shattered after a year in urban public schooling and he penned this provocative memoir as 'a radical call to action' to change the system that is failing its students mired in poverty, racism and violence. He believes teachers alone should not be expected to solve the overwhelming issues their students face. Here are some excerpts from Ed Boland's The Battle For Room 314, published by Grand Central Publishing.

    NEWTOWN - A proposal to create detailed profiles of students’ personal lives as part of a plan to better manage mental health issues in the classroom might sound like a transgression of the school district’s authority. But in the post-Sandy Hook world, the danger is not that privacy rights will be sidestepped by school districts looking to create comprehensive diagnostic pictures of students with special needs, Superintendent Joseph Erardi said. “There would only be a danger if we didn’t do that,” he said. “The question needs to be: ‘If the school district doesn’t take this on, how do we forge...

Ruelas said he knew that his friend "needed help," which is why...

    Parents, beware — Big Brother is coming for your kids. Buried deep inside the mammoth “bipartisan” so-called “education” legislation approved last month, dubbed the “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA), is a radical expansion of what the statute refers to as “full-service community schools.” The controversial institutions, more accurately described as parental replacement centers, seek to oversee every aspect of your child's life, ranging from their “mental health” and “well being” to nutrition and even dentistry.You are in the crosshairs, too, as the Obama administration defines parents as “equal partners” in child rearing. And those are just some of the many...

    OMAHA, Nebraska, January 18, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – A battle over sex education in Omaha schools roiling since last year is set to come to a head soon, with the district's board of education scheduled to vote this week on proposed new Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) standards. The new standards are an effort to usurp parents as primary educators of their children, one parents' group says, and with the push for the standards involving Planned Parenthood and other objectionable groups, parents are crying foul. "Our children's souls are at risk," Mark Bonkiewicz of Nebraskans for Founders' Values told LifeSiteNews. "We're not...
