Dr. Michele Stacey based her conclusions on surveys of 288 students that she conducted both before and after they completed the course, which is mandatory for Criminal Justice majors and minors.

  • Alarmed by fake news, states push media literacy in schools

    Associated Press ^ | Dec 30 2017, 11:15 AM EST | Ryan J. Foley
    Alarmed by the proliferation of false content online, state lawmakers around the country are pushing schools to put more emphasis on teaching students how to tell fact from fiction. Lawmakers in several states have introduced or passed bills calling on public school systems to do more to teach media literacy skills that they say are critical to democracy. The effort has been bipartisan but has received little attention despite successful legislation in Washington state, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Mexico. Several more states are expected to consider such bills in the coming year, including Arizona, New York and Hawaii. “I...

    A commission headed by Anita Hill and composed of and funded by some of the most powerful names in Hollywood has been created to tackle widespread sexual abuse and harassment in the media and entertainment industries. Called the Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, the initiative was spearheaded by Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm; Maria Eitel, the co-chair of the Nike Foundation; the powerhouse attorney Nina Shaw; and Freada Kapor Klein, the venture capitalist who helped pioneer surveys on sexual harassment decades ago. The commission’s mission, according to a news release, is to “tackle the...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown took the anti-Trump resistance to the Vatican over the weekend, declaring that the world is in need of a so-called “brainwashing” on climate change. In an appearance Saturday at an event organized by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Mr. Brown assured leaders that the “Trump factor” on climate change is minimal compared to the efforts taking place worldwide, but that it’s not the only problem fueling delusions on the climate threat, The Sacramento Beereported. “The Trump factor is very small, very small indeed,” the Democratic governor, who has been a vocal opponent of the president’s...

    VATICAN CITY Gov. Jerry Brown challenged the world’s religious leaders to further engage as he minimized the negative effects of President Donald Trump on meeting the climate-change challenge. “The Trump factor is very small, very small indeed,” in comparison to the commitments taking place around the world, Brown said to a burst of applause Saturday at an event organized by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. “That’s nothing to cheer about, because if it was only Trump that was a problem, we’d have it solved. But that’s not our only problem. “The problem … is us. It’s our whole way...

    NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION ^ | October 24, 2017 | President, NEA. Lily Eskelsen García
    In 2015 we voted unanimously at the NEA Representative Assembly to confront institutional racism in our schools. That means looking at the structures and processes that advantage some students and disadvantage others, especially students of color. Those structures and processes include the harsh disciplinary practices that directly or indirectly push students out of school and into the criminal justice system. We call this the school to prison pipeline. We’re standing together to shut down the pipeline and bring an end to the unfair imposition of discipline that alienates far too many students from their own schools. NEA is building awareness, educating members and the community...

    The Mandalay Bay security guard who disappeared last week moments before he was scheduled to break his silence in television interviews has not been seen since he went to a walk-in health clinic, his union president said. David Hickey of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) told reporters Friday that he got a text the night before saying Jesus Campos was taken to a UMC Quick Care facility, though he did not specify where or whom the text came from. A spokesperson at the UMC Quick Care, which has eight locations throughout the Las Vegas area, told...

    Texas State University has opened two new job openings for math education professors, with the caveat that they have to demonstrate a commitment to social justice. According to a Campus Reform report Tuesday, the university is seeking—for at least one of the two math professorship positions—not only a commitment to social justice, but “evidence of research” on the subject..... “We are especially interested in applicants whose scholarly interests and work include attention to the concerns of race, ethnicity, multilingualism, immigrant, social class, gender, and diversity, broadly defined,” the notice states.

    These parents feel betrayed by the school district that they were not notified,” said Karen England of the Capitol Resource Institute, according to CBS Sacramento. “The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl,” England said at the board meeting Monday night. I want her to hear from me as a parent what her gender identity means to her and our family,” a meeting attendee said regarding her daughter. “It’s really about the parents being informed and involved and giving us the choice...

    How Google's Jigsaw is fighting the darkest parts of the internet BY KERRY FLYNN JUL 20, 2017 Fake news, terrorist propaganda, hateful comments — the internet is not the nicest place in the world. Jigsaw is trying to change that. Formerly under Google, Jigsaw now is a subsidiary within Alphabet. The company, under the direction of Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt and Google Ideas founder Jared Cohen who serves as founder and CEO of Jigsaw, focuses on researching some of the darkest corners of the internet and implementing ways to address them.

    Prepare to be “nudged” by Obama's new “behavioral science” squads — for your own good, of course. Under the guise of better “serving” the American people through government, Obama signed an executive order this week calling for federal agencies and departments to deploy emerging “behavioral science” techniques against the public.Among other goals, the expansion of federal mind manipulation is supposed to help more Americans access government welfare programs, take their “recommended” vaccines, supply more information about themselves to the federal government, and accelerate the transition toward what Obama called “a low-carbon economy.” The controversial decree, signed on September 15, explicitly...

    With recent denouncements of President Trump and the entirely unsurprising calls for impeachment (that were in fact being called for by the same people before he even took office), coupled with the fact that yesterday marked 18 years to the day that the Clinton impeachment began, I thought I might try a small social experiment to find out just how much work has been done by the Liberal media to brainwash today’s youth. This is an incredibly unscientific experiment, but every word is true. Not being an American, I do pride myself on having a fairly good grasp of American...

    Last year’s election made Seattle’s Tod Steward a minor celebrity. If by celebrity you mean “the kind that everybody hates,” he laughs. Not here, though. In Canada. The 53-year-old First Hill resident has found a small niche in Canada as the most peculiar, and certainly most elusive, species of our time. He’s Seattle’s Only Trump Voter™. OK that’s not actually a trademarked phrase, nor is it numerically true. To be precise, 32,361 Seattleites besides Steward also cast votes for Donald Trump last November. But the percentage was so historically low — only 8 percent of the city’s 385,000 votes —...

    Brainwashing and forced ideological conformity are what colleges today are all about When parents send their kids off to college, they assume they will receive training that prepares them for a lifetime of employment. However, the truth is most of America’s colleges spend precious little time imparting practical skills to students. As tuitions and student loan debt grow at historic rates, an extraordinary amount of classroom time is spent indoctrinating students with leftist propaganda. It pays off for the Left which uses the existing taxpayer-supported system to churn out America-hating subversives. Parents send their kids to colleges and universities, and...

    The father of a sixth-grade student from Paulo Intermediate School in Staten Island was outraged to see his 11-year-old daughter's assignment turned political. The student's English teacher is under fire after slipping an anti-Trump question into the girl's homework. The homework sheet contained a fill-in-the-blank portion where students were asked to provide vocabulary terms from a box of words for sentences about Donald Trump and Barack Obama. The lines read: 'President Trump speaks in a very superior and _________ manner insulting many people. He needs to be more __________ so that the American people respect and admire him.' The correct...

    A University of Cambridge study devised psychological tools to target fact distortion. Researchers suggest "pre-emptively exposing" readers to a small "dose" of the misinformation can help organisations cancel out bogus claims. ... "Misinformation can be sticky, spreading and replicating like a virus," said the University of Cambridge study's lead author Dr Sander van der Linden. "The idea is to provide a cognitive repertoire that helps build up resistance to misinformation, so the next time people come across it they are less susceptible." The study, published in the journal Global Challenges, was conducted as a disguised experiment. More than 2,000 US...

    History textbooks read by schoolchildren in California — and perhaps across the country — could include a lesson about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election if a bill to be introduced by a Marin County legislator becomes law. The bill from Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael, will ask the state to adopt high school history curricula based on a recent national intelligence assessment: that Russia interfered in the election through the production of fake news and hacking, according to the lawmaker.
