    Parents and pro-life advocates urged a Pennsylvania school board Wednesday to reject a proposal to put a Planned Parenthood-run facility inside Reading High School. The Reading Eagle reports the facility would not do abortions at the high school, but Planned Parenthood staffers would offer students sex education, counseling about reproductive health and referrals to their abortion facility in Reading. Pro-lifers with Students for Life, the Pennsylvania Family Institute and others have been joining local parents to protest the proposal in the past few months. On June 21, about 80 pro-life advocates stood outside the Reading School District to urge the...

    If you had argued pre-Obergefell that de-sexing marriage would lead to drag queens leading preschool storytime in public libraries and public schools hounded into hiding their mandatory sex ed curriculum from parents after a settlement requiring trans-friendly “education” starting in kindergarten, you would have been called an unhinged bigot. How could what two consenting adults do privately have any effect on whether five-year-olds are told they should consider cutting off their penises? Preposterous. Fear-mongering. Wild-eyed insanity. Or not. Rod Dreher’s “Law of Merited Impossibility” strikes again: “It will never happen, and when it does, you bigots will deserve it.” As...

    'It's a system deliberately designed to handicap the individual' It’s no surprise to hear that America’s education system is in disarray, with Common Core dumbing down young students, faith absent from education and underpaid teachers increasingly unfit to serve as effective educators. But all of that is by design, contends Alex Newman, an international journalist and co-author of “Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children.” He recently appeared on the “Revealing the Truth with Rabbi Walker” Web TV show to discuss the issue. Newman believes the government education system is not built to...

    A Virginia high sent a disturbing letter to parents and students announcing they would be selecting students for Advanced Placement and honors classes at least partly based on skin color, a concerned parent told Fox News. Martin Luther King, Jr. must be turning over in his grave. A parent forwarded me a copy of the letter sent from John Handley High School in Winchester. “Through our collective work, advanced classes such as AP and Honors will have proportional representation,” read the letter. “Proportional representation is 40% White, 35% Hispanic, 12% African American, 10% mixed race.” The letter went on to...

    The school said it required students to be between the 5 and 85 percentiles as far as BMI, which is marked in the nutrition category, and her daughter was in the 94 percentile. After Dickens' husband received the letter in the mail, he immediately called his wife and asked, "So, is the school calling our kid fat?" The letter required Dickens to bring her daughter to her pediatrician for further evaluation for her nutrition and must provide proof to the school that she did so. "I understand hearing and vision because that affects their ability to be educated the proper...

    New K-12 school guidelines in Minnesota are mandating public schools to “segregate” students who object to transgender locker rooms and bathrooms to foster inclusion of “gender nonconforming” and transgender people. Last week, the Minnesota Department of Education advisory council approved a new gender toolkit aimed at protecting and including transgender students in the state’s public education system.

    A former Nebraska teacher has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for having sex with a student on his 16th birthday. Emily Lofing, 27, was charged with debauching a minor as the boy was 16 years old, the age of consent in Nebraska. Lofing did not contest the charge, WOWT reports. The married former teacher was working in Weeping Water at the time of the offence. She is alleged to have met up with the teenager to have sex in July 2016. Her lawyer, Desirae Solomon, claimed she had suffered a “mental breakdown” and pleaded with the judge to...

    A Special Session of the Texas Legislature called by our Governor Greg Abbott is underway - and we need your activism to ensure the privacy, safety and dignity of Texans is protected. In the regular session that ended May 29, House Speaker Joe Straus kept the Texas Privacy Act and other related legislation from even receiving a vote in the Texas House, even though a majority of the House supported privacy legislation. This is in stark contrast to the Texas Senate where, under the leadership of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, the Texas Privacy Act passed early in the regular session....

    One Indiana school district has kowtowed to a prominent atheist group’s complaint about incorporating prayer into its graduation ceremonies. Elkhart Community Schools received a letter of complaint last month from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation regarding the fact that prayers were featured in a graduation ceremony at the Roosevelt STEAM Academy, an elementary school with a hands-on approach to science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. In a response sent to the FFRF late last month, Elkhart Schools District Counsel Chief of Staff and General Counsel W. Douglas Thorne confirmed to the atheist organization that the schools would stop including...

    Beginning in 2020, Chicago high-school seniors will have to prove that they have a government-approved post-graduation plan in order to earn their diplomas. Yep. Rather than allow its young people the freedom to approach their futures creatively, Chicago will force its students to choose from one of just five government-approved options: College attendance (note: verbal vows of attendance are not enough, students will need to present actual acceptance letters), a gap-year program, military service, a trade apprenticeship, or a job. According to Reason, the official description of the demand claims that the city is trying to raise $1 million...

But at this point, Hamilton father of two Steve Tourloukis and his lawyer, Albertos Polizogopoulos, are fighting not only the school board but the elementary teachers’ union and openly lesbian Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Liberal government. “This appeal is about protecting the rights of parents to direct their children’s education, and to protect the religious freedom of parents and their children,” states Tourloukis’ appeal...
