    Leftist educators are corrupting the young. Teachers at Highlands Elementary, a school in Edina, Minnesota, are indoctrinating five-year-olds in order to radicalize them and encourage them to become activists obsessed with race. Public school teachers across America already saturate students with information about racial injustice in America in a nonstop barrage of historic facts and ahistorical nonsense. And in the culture at large, the media, politicians, and the entertainment industry can’t stop talking about race. The last thing any young student in America needs is to be taught about is race. Race matters only to radicals.

    By the time students enter college, they want to focus on their specific area of study or proposed career. Educators should dictate what’s best for the curriculum, not legislators.

    ER Braithwaite, the Guyanese author of To Sir, With Love, has died at his home in Maryland at the age of 104. Born in Guyana on 27 June 1912, Eustace Edward Ricardo Braithwaite was the child of privileged parents, both graduates of Oxford University. His father was a diamond miner while his mother raised the family. During the second world war, he joined the Royal Air Force to fight as a pilot before going on to Cambridge to read physics. He later said that he experienced no racial prejudice within the RAF. On graduating, he found himself barred from work...
  • Watch video of anti-gun(control) project that got student suspended(NJ)

    The assignment last April was for students to come up with an election topic that would provoke discussion in the class, said Frank Harvey. Harvey, then a junior at Manville High School, decided to pick the topic of anti-gun control, he said. He put together an impressive video presentation that earned him an "A" on the project, he said. But Tuesday, Harvey, a senior, was suspended from Manville High School and ordered to undergo a psychological exam for that same project. His teacher, Rachel Gottfried, has denied giving her College and Career Readiness class the assignment and approving his topic,...

The school’s superintendent called the posting an extremely unfortunate incident and highly inappropriate. Welsh was not in school Friday, and CBS2 was not able to reach her at her home nor on her phone.

    Educators and students from all over the country flocked to the 17th Annual White Privilege Conference (WPC) in Philadelphia over the weekend. The controversial gathering featured a number of radical ideologies, including those that could only be described as anti-Christian and anti-police. The annual conference touts itself as an event aimed at fixing a system in which minorities do not enjoy the same privileges that white people have. EAG News reports that the conference is “championed by a radical sect of educators from the organization Rethinking Schools,” bent on reinforcing the leftist maxim of “white privilege.”

    LONDON – While British school inspection authority Ofsted holds respect for minorities high on its agenda, it has set a meeting for independent London schools – including Jewish schools – on Rosh Hashana. Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, has the authority to insist on changes in schools if common standards and regulations aren’t met, and in extreme cases can recommend the closure of schools. It has the power to descend on a school without notice, or minimal notice, to ensure the establishment is up to scratch. High on its agenda is ensuring schools teach...

    ATLANTA (AP) — A group of former Atlanta educators convicted in a test cheating scandal were locked up in jail Thursday as they await sentences that could send them to prison for years. In one of the nation's largest cheating scandals of its kind, the 11 defendants were convicted Wednesday of racketeering for their roles in a scheme to inflate students' scores on standardized exams. They include teachers, a principal and other administrators, who were accused of falsifying test results to collect bonuses or keep their jobs in the 50,000-student Atlanta public school system. A 12th defendant, a teacher, was...

    Controversial street artist Sabo, for the first time ever, publicly revealed his face on television on the One American News Networks Rick Amato Show last night. Sabo, is his work art, or is it another form of vandalism? You be the judge. Known for his unique and in-your-face pieces, Sabo attempts to point “out the hypocrisy of liberal ideology and liberals on the left in general,” says Rick Amato. And until yesterday, Sabo had kept his face, at least on television, anonymous. But why did he choose to reveal himself now?

    If you plan to attend Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, better get oriented for your orientation; you may be privileged. But don’t worry; there’s always room for spiritual growth. The school is adding a class titled “Checking Your Privilege 101” because of pressure from student activists, and that class will be part of your orientation! Lucky you! Reetu Mody, a first-year masters student in public policy and a campus activist, exclaimed, “We’re at one of the most powerful institutions in the world, yet we never critically examine power and privilege and what it means to have access to this power....

Are there any groups of conservative teachers that would be willing to organize to combine efforts to promote conservative thinking at your school? Would such a group survive?

    It’s safe to say not too many zeroes are handed out to students who have actually completed their assignment and have handed it in. Most flat-line marks are due to, as seen in the Dorval case, required work the student failed to do. If there is nothing to grade, it stands to reason no grade is given.

    Rockford Public School high school teacher Craig Beach wrote a column for MLive in which he alleged that Republican lawmakers are ruining the teaching profession and talked about a colleague’s daughter’s views on teacher pay. Beach quoted the young woman criticizing the teaching profession’s “extremely low pay” with “I want to eat and have a life.” The article quotes the young woman as saying: “Mom, I know what goes into the profession. You demonstrate the many hours put in after leaving school, the stress, the lack of respect and now extremely low pay. I want to eat and have a...

    President Obama met with executives from the nation’s largest corporations and demanded large cash payments for education. Corporate bosses eagerly agreed to fork over what amounts to additional taxes for a schools system that does little to educate future employees. President Obama agreed to do nothing in return to improve the state of the public schools. He orated: “We’ll tell you what you need. Your job is to feel guilty and sign checks.” Corporate executives and government officials held hands and sang verses from Gilbert and Sullivan, with an especially rousing rendition of “We are the very model of a...

    A look inside a teacher's mind could help you understand lesson plans and maybe even guide your child to perform better. 1. If we teach small children, don’t tell us that our jobs are “so cute” and that you wish you could glue and color all day long. 2. I’m not a marriage counselor. At parent-teacher conferences, let’s stick to Dakota’s progress, not how your husband won’t help you around the house.

    A Spanish teacher in the Brownsville Area School District, she was suspended for 30 days without pay because a photograph of her with a stripper at a colleague's bachelorette party was posted on the popular social networking website. On Tuesday, she said she felt vindicated, as she and her ACLU attorney announced a $10,000 settlement with the district, along with full back pay and a clearing of her disciplinary record. Butch Santicola, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania State Educators Association, said teachers have to be careful in what photographs they take, what gets posted and where. "This is something that's...
