  • Dangerous People Are Teaching Your Kids

    The Coach's Team ^ | 6/13/18 | Jordan Peterson
    You may not realize it, but you are currently funding some dangerous people. They are indoctrinating young minds throughout the West with their resentment-ridden ideology. They have made it their life's mission to undermine Western civilization itself, which they regard as corrupt, oppressive and “patriarchal.” If you're a taxpayer—or paying for your kid's liberal arts degree—you're underwriting this gang of nihilists. You're supporting ideologues who claim that all truth is subjective; that all sex differences are socially constructed; and that Western imperialism is the sole source of all Third World problems. They are the post-modernists, pushing “progressive” activism at a...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 06/07/18 | John Dingle III
    New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has just ratcheted up the extreme risk protection order or “red flag” law game by several degrees. He has proposed legislation which would enable teachers and other school officials to petition courts to ‘block access to guns by students.’ Translated from the newspeak, this legislation would allow teachers to file an extreme risk protection order petition against the parents of a suspect student. From newsday.com: Cuomo said the bill would be the first in the nation to provide an opportunity for a teacher to act on suspicions that students could be a danger to...

    De Blasio wants to scrap admissions testing for elite high schools Mayor de Blasio unveiled a plan Saturday to boost black and Latino enrollment at the city’s eight specialized high schools — and he wants to scrap admissions tests outright. In an op-ed for education-news site Chalkbeat, de Blasio announced that 20 percent of seats at those eight schools would be reserved for low-income applicants. Kids in the Department of Education’s Discovery Program who score just below the admissions cut-off would be given one of those saved seats, according to the plan. De Blasio said he will fight to eventually...

    Omar Austin had to do a double take when he spotted a sexually explicit question on his teenage daughter's homework assignment this week. "This needs to be seen. [What the hell] is going on in our schools???" the Florida father asked as he read the question aloud in a video posted to Facebook on Wednesday. The mulitple choice question reportedly read, "Ursula was devastated when her boyfriend broke up with her after having sex. To get revenge, she had sex with his best friend the next day. Ursula had a beautiful baby girl nine months later. Ursula has type O...

    PHOENIX -- Thousands of teachers in Arizona and Colorado descended upon their respective Capitols for a second day in a growing educator uprising. Educators in both states want more classroom resources and have received offers either for increased school funding or pay, but they say the money isn't guaranteed and the efforts don't go far enough. The walkouts are the latest in demonstrations that spread from West Virginia, Oklahoma and Kentucky. Teachers said they won't return to work until they feel their message has been heard. Alexis Aguirre, a second-grade teacher in Phoenix, said living paycheck to paycheck has forced...

    What do the three pictured flags have in common? The first is the flag of the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics). Estimates are that 40,000,000 to 60,000,000 people lost their lives under the rule of Stalin's iron fist. The third is the Chinese flag. Everyday hard-working people did not fare well in Mao's China either. Anywhere from 49,000,000 to 78,000,000 died under Mao's communist society. In the middle is the flyer that teachers' unions distributed to Colorado teachers with their Walk-Ins tool-kit encouraging Englewood's teachers to protest and walk out of class recently. Additionally, the teachers' unions are organizing...

    Left-wing indoctrination is nothing new to "blue" California but sex education has evolved from safety and science to full-blown propaganda. Every middle schooler and high schooler in California must sit through sex-ed classes that include information about birth control and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS. Students are also taught to affirmatively recognize – in other words, praise - different sexual orientations and gender identities. Parents are free to pull their kids out of the sex-ed classes but according to at least one school attorney from Orange County, they may not excuse their children from the pro-homosexual propaganda.

    “With slightly increased oversight in a state-by-state, case-by-case basis, children might not slip through the cracks,” said Hannah Ettinger, who studies incidents of violence against or perpetrated by home school students for the Coalition for Responsible Home Education. The group advocates for increased oversight of home-schooled students, such as requiring that each be registered and meet yearly with a certified teacher for annual testing and with a doctor for a physical checkup — both of whom would be required to report to authorities if they suspected a child’s physical or mental health or welfare were in jeopardy. Texas’ regulations are...

    Teachers carried signs and marched during a rally at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City on Monday calling for higher wages. Last week, the legislature in Oklahoma City voted to give teachers an average raise of $6,000 per year, or roughly 16 percent, depending on experience. Gov. Mary Fallin, a Republican, signed the package into law, but teachers said it was not enough. They have asked for a $10,000 raise as well as additional funding for schools and raises for support staff like bus drivers and custodians.

Homeschooling may seem like the new kid on the block when it comes to educating our children, however it’s the world’s oldest education model.Prior to compulsory schooling, educating children at home was considered part of a parent’s responsibility. It was a way to ensure a family-centered upbringing that included morals, ethics, religious doctrine, and often times taught the children how to run the household from a young...

    The same "progressives" who have made American higher education into indoctrination chambers for cultural Marxism, identity racism and other anti-American ideas are targeting our K-12 public schools. For instance: At the Edina School District in Edina, Minnesota, all employees, even bus drivers, must take "Equity and Racial Justice Training" instructing them that "dismantling white privilege" is at the core of the district's mission. They must acknowledge their racial guilt, and embrace the district's "equity" ideology. To enhance "cultural diversity," students at Maryland's La Plata High School were ordered to copy the Islamic creed "Shahada" which states in part, "There is...

    When public school officials in Middleburgh, New York, called an assembly and used it to promote outrageous anti-Second Amendment propaganda demonizing American gun owners, at least one student objected. After the assembly, 17-year-old Christian Breault expressed his concerns about it to other students. In response, Breault was attacked by an indoctrinated anti-gun student who had become agitated from the propaganda pushed by the school. And when Breault defended himself from the bully, the same school officials who sought to indoctrinate the children with their agenda punished him for it. Now, the student's father wants the principal to step down. “The...

    There have been numerous reports of students being bullied, pushed to participate in anti-Second Amendment protests they did not believe in, and of being punished for speaking out.  The Second Amendment Foundation today announced a project to help students who have been harassed, intimidated or bullied for resisting peer pressure to join the wave of protests against guns and the right to keep and bear arms. "A student's First Amendment rights should not be violated because they support the Second Amendment," said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.

Monday September 5th, 2005 In 1962, the government of these United States joined the governments of Canada, Europe and South America and evicted the Lord God Creator of the Universe, Christ Jesus, from the body politic and the public school system. That void was immediately replaced by satan. Abortion became legal, the destruction of the marriage via no fault divorces became the law of the land, adultery, homosexuality, and promiscuous behavior became accepted norms. Fathers were degraded and prohibited by law from punishing their children with a strap,...

    I'll keep this short: if you want to eliminate the shootings in schools, and don't want to impose draconian limits on the sale and possession of firearms, then decentralize the schools. This reduces the target density, plus it allows our children to be protected by adults with guns against the perps looking for their 15 minutes of glory.

    The murder of 17 innocent high school students in Parkland, Florida reminds us that public schools are dangerous. Too dangerous for children. Yet there are pro-public school ideologues who refuse to face the facts. They shut their eyes to reality. They spout their slogan: "Public schools don't kill public school students. Killers kill public school students." We have heard this for 50 years. Yet the killers are always one of these: (1) enrolled public school students, (2) public school graduates, or (3) expelled public school students. It's time to turn a deaf ear on the refrain about public schools not...

The questions were part of a survey from the state and also included the topics of drug use and suicide.
