    U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King said that he has concerns about children who are homeschooled according to a story published in Politico Pro (paywall) today. Education Secretary John B. King Jr. said today that he’s concerned that homeschooled students aren’t “getting the range of options that are good for all kids.” But King also said he’s aware of homeschooling families “doing it incredibly well” and he knew of students in college who had “very tremendous academic success.” “Obviously, it’s up to families if they want to take a homeschool approach,” King said, when asked about the topic during...

    "I worry that in a lot of cases students who are homeschooled are not getting the kind of the breadth of instruction experience they would get in school, they're also not getting the opportunity to build relationships with peers unless their parents are very intentional about it," said Education Secretary John B. King Jr. "And they're often not getting those relationships with teachers and mentors other than their parents. I do worry whether home school students are getting the range of opportunities we hope for for all kids," he said slamming the system.

    ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Police say a fearful 11-year-old Georgia girl who took a knife to school told officers she needed the weapon to fend off clowns. The Athens Banner-Herald reports the girl was arrested Friday at Burney-Harris-Lyons Middle School in Athens amid reports and social media posts about clowns frightening children in Georgia and other states. An Athens-Clarke County police report states the girl said she needed the knife to protect her and her family because she had heard the stories about clowns jumping out of the woods and attacking children.

    A U.S. Catholic bishop has explicitly refused to allow parents to opt their kids out of a diocesan-run school’s sex-ed program deemed by parents to be “erotic” and “salacious,” calling the program a “legitimate requirement” for graduation. Instead of listening to the parents’ concerns, the bishop has cited the Vatican’s newly minted and problematic sex-ed curriculum as a way to evaluate the school’s program. In a letter dated September 2, Bishop David Choby of the Catholic Diocese of Nashville, Tennessee, told parents opposing the sex-ed program that while he “wholeheartedly support[s]” their right as “primary educator,” nevertheless, when they send...

    Two years ago I chased down a single dad whose son attended schools in the same district as the infamous Missourian Michael Brown. Sixty-six-year-old Paul Davis, a cab driver and son of Mississippi sharecroppers, decided to pay $1,500 in rent atop his mortgage just to get his son Robert out of some of the nation’s most violent schools by establishing residency in a better school district. Davis told me about the time in fifth grade other black boys had held Robert down until he peed on himself; the time bullies stole his book bag; the many times they attacked Robert—in...

    Greg Hill, the head football coach at San Francisco’s Mission High School, was standing on the sideline Saturday afternoon before a game in Marin County when it occurred to him that a player or two might take action during the national anthem. As the song began, Hill, 41, turned toward his team and was taken aback by what he saw. Every player on the roster — black, white, Latino, Asian — was on one knee, an echo of the hotly debated move by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to protest racial inequality and police brutality. In that moment, Hill said, he...

"People expect me to say that using the boys' bathroom was super magical and just the best time of my life," Grimm said in a recent interview with CNN. "But I was just using the bathroom," he said, "I went in and left." What was important for Grimm is that using the boy's room felt natural to him.

    A Montgomery County judge has ordered the Lower Merion School District to revoke its latest tax hike, saying the district misled taxpayers by projecting large budget deficits to justify raising taxes 4.4 percent when it actually had socked away millions of surplus dollars. In what may be an unprecedented win for Pennsylvania taxpayers, Common Pleas Judge Joseph A. Smyth said in his decision Monday that the district could increase taxes for 2016-17, but no more than 2.4 percent.

    Baltimore County Public Schools has adopted a new philosophy as the foundation for its grading system for the first time in 20 years. Many teachers just learned about the policy change when they returned to school last week. Under the new system, a student’s behavior is factored out of his or her grades. The school system also now recommends that teachers do not factor homework into overall grades or give students marks below 50%. Community Superintendent for Zone 2 George Roberts says low marks can damage a student's feeling of self-potential. “The power of the zero is extremely powerful and...

In addition to giving students the freedom to choose the facilities they find most accommodating, the Gender Identity Procedural Directive also lays out a stifling speech code for teachers to abide. Among the new requirements is a cessation of words like “boy” and “girl” in the classroom.

Would the child still be called a scholar? he transgender guidelines, which will go into effect later this month, range from the absurd to downright outrageous. For example, boys who identify as girls would be permitted to participate on overnight all-girl field trips. That’s...

One policy allows students to participate in extracurricular activities and overnight field trips based on their gender identity. A student who identifies as a girl would be allowed to participate in an "all-girl" overnight trip. Another policy says CMS must evaluate all gender-based activities and "maintain only those that have clear and sound pedagogical purpose."

    We know what Hillary Clinton wants for public K-12 education. She wants universal government preschool, despite the well-documented failure of government preschool to deliver even a fraction of what the Hillaryites promise. She wants federal “education SWAT teams” to “help” struggling schools (that idea creates interesting visuals). She wants more federal control over school discipline to enforce “school climates” of which she approves. And all education should be geared toward a sweeping, centralized, government-controlled system of workforce-development. The centerpiece of his proposals on education when he ran for governor was to install universal government preschool for all Virginia four-year-olds. We...

    Following the implementation of a first-of-its-kind law, California schools are now prepared to heavily inject history lessons with tales of gay activism. The law went into effect in 2012 and at the time of its passage made California the only state in the nation to regulate how LGBT figures are represented in public school curricula. Specific changes approved last week by the state education board include introducing and normalizing two-mother or two-father families to students as young as 7. In fourth grade, students will learn about outspoken gay L.A. politician Harvey Milk. The shoehorning of gay culture into existing history...

    A resolution passed by The National PTA at its 2016 Annual Convention & Expo in Orlando last weekend calls for “explicit federal statutory protections” for gay and transgender individuals in addition to those that “currently address discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, [and] disability.” The National PTA supports “legislation that specifically recognizes LGBTQ as a protected group and addresses discrimination based upon sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression,” according to the resolution, which is entitled Recognition of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) Individuals as a Protected Class. A “protected class” is a group...

    During an end-of-the-year class party at a New Jersey elementary school, a 9-year-old boy said something about brownies and was subsequently questioned by a police officer who was called by the school to investigate an incident of racism. It was another student that accused the boy of saying something "racist," but the boy's mother said he was talking about "snacks, not skin color," according to Philly.com. "He said they were talking about brownies. Who exactly did he offend?" the mother, Stacy dos Santos, asked incredulously. When the boy's father was contacted later in the day, he was informed that the...

    What would you do if your child came home from school and showed you the papers of how they were being taught the Islamic faith? I'm not just talking about a history lesson, kids are being taught the Islamic faith by liberal educators and unless you as a concerned parent or community member say something, things only going to get worse. Liberals have worked so hard to get prayer taking out of the school and now this! Over the years, they have even stopped prayer groups from coming together to high schools and college universities because these administrations did not...

    The New American ^ | 6/13/2016 | Alex Newman
    State officials in Louisiana tried to deceive citizens last week by approving what amounts to, essentially, a glorified name change for the deeply unpopular Common Core education standards pushed by the Obama administration. Basically, policymakers re-branded the scheme as “Louisiana Standards,” while pretending that there had been some “revisions” to the widely loathed education-nationalization effort. However, according to experts and activists involved in the process, the politically toxic national education standards imposed on state governments with federal funding and pressure remain almost entirely intact in Louisiana, despite the new name. Similar scams by government officials have taken place in states...

    A Bible-based 'lunch club' is blocked for students, yet gender identity groups get a free passby Deirdre Reilly In the Middleton-Cross Plains School District in Middleton, Wisconsin, kids who want to be a part of a GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) club have the full support of the district’s administrators. The weekly Jesus Lunch is a longstanding tradition in the community and is hugely popular. But if those kids or any other kids want to gather outside during school hours and have a “Jesus Lunch” — well, there’s a problem, folks. The district superintendent and other administrators recently blocked a group of...

    Youths in Fairfax County, Virginia, can now be disciplined and even expelled from school for criticizing the intrusive and aggressive transgender ideology. The transgender change in school regulations was imposed last night during a dramatic board meeting where only 12 pro-trans witnesses were invited to testify. The board members met on Thursday night only after being informed the night before that the discipline change would be considered. No opposing voices were allowed to be heard, parents were relegated to shouting opposition from the seats and some were ejected from the meeting.

The children encounter stern-faced border control officers and are made...

    A population of illiterate, non-thinking morons can’t possibly obtain good paying jobs. This country spends $12,000 per public school student per year on education and this is the outcome?
