    Too often, our children are prohibited from learning the Christian principles America is founded upon. This is thanks to liberal teachers and political correctness. But schools seem to have no problem teaching Islam–and one student’s mother in Bakersfield, California is furious about it! Her son is in the 7th grade, and was given a hand out entitled “Islamic Beliefs and Practices” where students were taught to memorize the 5 Pillars of Islam and view a YouTube video. The mother made it clear that her son will NOT be participating. She first shared details of the assignment on KGET-TV 17 Facebook’s...

     There’s nothing necessarily wrong with children learning about Islam. But learning about Islam to the exclusion of Christianity, and that Allah is the same God worshipped by Jews and Christians, has a lot of parents angry. Several Walton County parents say their children are being forced to learn about Islam, and want the option to exclude their children from these lessons. The teaching of Islam has banded together a group of upset parents. “My daughter had to learn the Shiad, and the five pillars of Islam, which is what you learn to convert, but they never once learned anything...

September 18, 2015 David Harsanyi Earlier this month, a 13-year-old boy in Maryland faced an assault charge after authorities said he had kissed a 14-year-old classmate on a dare at school. He’s being charged with second-degree assault as a juvenile. He has not, as yet, been invited to the White House. In December 2013, a 6-year-old boy in Colorado was suspended from school for kissing a girl on the hand. “It was during class,” Hunter Yelton explained. “We were doing reading group, and I...

    A school bus driver is out of the driver’s seat following a video that has been viewed thousands of times. The woman who shot the video says the bus driver constantly runs through stop signs with children from Springdale Elementary School on board. One day, she decided to record what happened on the route and posted it to social media. “I can’t believe someone would have that type of position and that responsibility and neglect it,” Rhonda Brown-Jones told WLWT. “That makes me scared.

    In Irving, Texas on Monday, High School student and 14 yr old Sudanese immigrant Ahmed Mohamed proudly brought his homemade “clock” to school. In a rabid bit of Islamophobia, his teacher feared the worst and in a gross overreaction, called the police. The police equally overreacted and Ahmed found himself under arrest. In order to highlight and educate against our biases, the President has invited Mr. Mohamed to the White House as a show of solidarity. In the wake of this tragic misunderstanding, how can we, as Americans, learn to better deal with our inner racist programming and prejudices? The...

Now, the self-styled “civil rights” outfit is stepping up its campaign to indoctrinate your children. The controversial Alabama-based group, widely ridiculed and criticized even by left-wing leaders for shady practices and deception, recently unveiled a new Common Core-aligned “educational” campaign. It is designed to inject even more pro-homosexual, pro-transgender propaganda into school classrooms across America, along with identity politics,...

So it’s understandable why the local church ladies got all shook up when they discovered that school children had been forced to declare, “There is no God but Allah.” Seventh graders at Spring Hill Middle School spent three weeks covering Islam in a Social Studies class – enraging some parents who say the lessons crossed the line into indoctrination and proselytization. “I am not pleased that my 12-year-old was taught the Islamic conversion prayer,” parent Brandee Porterfield told me.

She was featured on the cover of Vanity Fair and received an ESPY award for courage. But even as Jenner starred in a reality TV docu-series about her transition, a deeper question remained. If Jenner weren’t already a rich celebrity, would she have received the same support? How would other, less famous transgender Americans be treated? On Monday morning, a small town in Missouri provided an answer. For two hours, approximately 150 students stood in front of Hillsboro...

In fact, the number of middle and high school girls in Seattle who got long-acting reversible contraceptives like IUDs doubled in the last year due to efforts of the school system. Because Washington State law allows minors access to birth control without parental permission, children as young as 12 can get IUDs implanted without parents' knowledge.

    K-12 schools in the United States are characterized by three outstanding traits. First of all, there's less academic activity and achievement. The general thrust of the Education Establishment is to simplify the curriculum, strip away the harder content, keep discussions airy and empty, and in general to make classrooms focused on feelings rather than facts. Second, even as facts are not taught, specific opinions are taught again and again. Global warming is the fault of human activity. Gay marriage is hugely important.

    Some parents dropping kids off for their first day of school at the Academy for Academics and Arts in Huntsville were met with anti-abortion protesters outside the nearby Alabama Women's Center, which offers gynecological and birth control health care, and also provides abortions. The center is almost directly across Sparkman Drive from the school, which opened this year in the former Ed White Middle School building. Some concerned parents posted on social media about their frustration with anti-abortion protesters that were outside the Women's Center from about 7:30 a.m.-8:30 a.m. in full view of the parents and children headed to...

    strong>Angela Wade’s children hadn’t reached school age yet, so she had given little thought to where, or how, they’d be educated. But from the moment she set foot in her local public school—to vote on Election Day—she knew that she wouldn’t be sending her kids there. It wasn’t that the academics weren’t up to snuff or that the Astoria, Queens, elementary school suffered from a bad reputation. But what she saw in the hallways and on the cafeteria walls surprised this former New York City public school teacher with an education degree from NYU. “There were licensed characters painted on...

    (Dec 16, 2012) This week, left-wing outlets, like NPR’s quiz show, Wait, Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me! and the Huffington Post, as well as the British Telegraph, expressed surprise and concern that the new national Common Core standards will destroy the love of literature. The leftist outlets focused on favorites like Catcher in the Rye and To Kill a Mockingbird, but couldn’t seem to connect this unconstitutional federalization of education with their favorite presidential candidate. They should also be concerned about what the recently released test questions reveal about what the feds want: happy workers for the State....

You can see him placing handcuffs on the biceps of an eight-year-old boy.

    Seventh-graders in all public and private schools in Rhode Island are now required to get the HPV vaccine. Starting this fall, seventh-graders who do not get the vaccine will not be allowed to attend school unless their parents seek an exemption for medical or religious reasons, the Providence Journal reported Tuesday. Tricia Washburn, chief of the office of immunization for the Rhode Island Department of Health, said the Centers for Disease Control found no safety concerns with the vaccine. "The bottom line is that HPV is the most sexually transmitted disease in the U.S." she said. "We are interested in...

    SODUS, NY, July 27, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Boys or girls who suffer from gender dysphoria must be allowed to use the bathrooms and change rooms of the opposite sex if they wish to do so, according to new guidance from the New York State Department of Education (NYDE).The document also clarifies that while schools can make “unisex” facilities available to such students, such facilities “should never be forced upon students, nor presented as the only option." Furthermore, schools should generally accept any student's stated preferred gender without question.The advice is just one of the more controversial sections of the document,...

    FULL TITLE: Banned Parenthood? Pro-lifers say video scandal should get abortion provider expelled from public schools The hidden camera scandal engulfing Planned Parenthood should be enough to get the organization kicked out of public schools, where it is the nation's leading provider of sex ed lessons, say pro-life groups that have long suspected the nonprofit of steering youngsters toward its abortion services. The national organization is reeling after a group called the Center for Medical Progress released a second video showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing prices for tissue from aborted fetuses. The cringe-inducing videos have prompted calls from some Republicans...

  • S-1177: Common Core Will Be Imposed on Private Schools That Get Fed Funds

    07/20/2015 4:00:45 PM PDT · by all the best · 19 replies
    Senate bill 1177 is a bipartisan measure to federalize education, all in the name of preserving local control. It will be imposed on charter schools and all private schools that accept a nickel of aid. As I said 30 years ago, “If you take the government’s nickel, you also take its noose.” S-1177 is about to pass. Here is a warning: Protecting our children from increasing oppressions and loss of freedoms will require not allowing federal S.1177 to pass. The name of S.1177, which now sits in the Senate on Capitol Hill, is also: “The Every Child Achieves Act of...
  • Don't Give Obama More Power Over Schools

    After spending most of June giving President Obama new authority to negotiate trade deals with low-wage countries in Asia, congressional Republicans are now poised to spend July giving Obama new authority over education in America's public schools. This is a big disappointment for those of us who worked hard to elect a Republican Congress last November. We expected the new Congress to take power back from the president, not give him more. For the past 50 years, the engine of federal control over local schools has been Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. It...
