    Now that student mobs at universities around America (and elsewhere in the West) have silenced conservative speaker after conservative speaker, it has dawned on a small number of left-wing professors that the public is beginning to have contempt for the universities. As a result, a handful of academics at a handful of universities have signed statements on behalf of allowing "diverse" views to be heard at the university. These statements are worthless. While some of the professors who have signed them may sincerely believe that the university should honor the value of non-left free speech, one should keep in mind...

    BRONX — Building on his success of Pre-K for all of the city’s 4-year-olds, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday a plan to provide free “full day” pre-K for all of the city’s 3 year-olds by 2021. The program — called “3K for All” — will ramp up starting this September with roughly 11,000 children attending the city’s EarlyLearn programs, which serve the city’s low-income working families. In September 2018, about 2,000 3-year-olds in two of the city’s poorest school districts — South Bronx’s District 7 and Ocean Hill/Brownsville’s District 23 — will be part of the program. Two more...

    Students in a math class at Riverview High School in Florida are being persecuted for their faith. They are punished for not removing their cross jewelry. They are harassed for not embracing the LGBT agenda pushed on them by their lesbian teacher. But one ninth-grade student is pushing back. Her attorneys filed a demand letter requiring the teacher to cease and desist by close of business Thursday.Cross.jpg - 500 Parents told Liberty Counsel that at least three students were not allowed to wear their cross necklaces. Math teacher Lora Jane Riedas claimed they were “gang symbols.” When one student asked...

    By Louis Zhang Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) houses the country’s and maybe the world’s most competitive high schools and is infamous for their #closeFCPS trend that is still annoyingly popular today. This school district is just another reason why living in NoVA is so great. However, you’ve got an idiot running the thing, and he is called Ryan McElveen. You might’ve heard about his push to force gender neutral bathrooms, but that’s not all. To show you the damage he and other board members have caused, let me welcome you to my school, Chantilly High School. This school, like...

    Liberals have spent decades screaming about the separation of church and ‘state’, but now they’ve made a huge exception for Islam. The San Diego School District will start having school calendars showing Islamic holidays and begin to teach students about Islam in social studies classes and school district will create safe places on campuses for Muslim students as part of a multi-tiered approach to combat ‘Islamophobia’. This plan doesn’t include classes on Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion. The school district conducted a survey to see how much bullying occurred because of student’s Islamic faith and found only seven instances...

    Grocery store aisles are lined with chocolate candy bunnies, jelly beans, and marshmallow Peeps, but one thing is missing--the word "Easter." Hershey's, M&M's, Lindor, Russell Stover, Dove, Rolo, and Twix have all produced Easter themed candy without mentioning the word on the front of their candy, according to a press release from the Liberty Counsel. "Just as companies were trying to profit from Christmas while ignoring the reason for the celebration, now companies are targeting the Christian aspects of Easter and removing them," Mat Staver, Founder, and Chairman of Liberty Counsel said. {..snip..}

    A new book that sells the concept of Communism “in the simple terms of a children’s story” has failed to sell on Amazon.com — except in the category for true believers. “Communism for Kids” by MIT Press “unfolds like a story, with jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers,” its Amazon.com page explains. […] Scathing customer reviews give the book a rating of only 1.7 out of 5 stars, with comments noting communism has killed “over 60 million people” and asking, “If Communism is so great why are they selling the book. Isn’t that capitalism?” …

    Creators Syndicate ^ | April 12, 2017 | Walter E. Williams
    The average American has little knowledge of the extent to which our institutions of higher learning have been infected with a spreading cancer. One aspect of that cancer is akin to the loyalty oaths of the 1940s and '50s. Professors were often required to sign statements that affirmed their loyalty to the United States government plus swear they were not members of any organizations, including the Communist Party USA, that sought the overthrow of the United States government. Fortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down loyalty oaths as a condition of employment in 1964. Today we're seeing the re-emergence of...

    Pro-family groups hoping the United Nations would quit pushing homosexuality and gender confusion on children under new UN Secretary-General António Guterres are going to be very disappointed. Not only has the globalist institution not reined in its activism on behalf of the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender” (LGBT) agenda, the UN's new LGBT czar is using taxpayer resources to push the indoctrination into schools worldwide — and especially on young children. Simultaneously, the UN is helping to wage a global war on religious liberty, much of it under the guise of protecting LGBT activists from “stigma” and “discrimination.” Critics, though,...

    The warning was clear: Christian parents should pull their children out of public schools, now, to protect them from spiritual damage, extreme indoctrination, and other serious problems. Pastors and churches should work to encourage that “exodus,” helping and encouraging families to put their kids in homeschools or private Christian schools as quickly as possible. The alternative will be the continued decline of the church in America and an acceleration of the nation's decline. That was the explosive message of an evangelical ministry leader speaking as a guest this week on one of America's top Christian radio programs.Dr. James Dobson, one...

    Now you really know which commies are indoctrinating your children into Cultural Marxism eight hours every day, every school year Global civic demonstrations as practiced by young and compass-less anarchist hordes have become the latest expression of cultural Marxism, an “unseen plague which corrupted America” and now threatens the rest of the western world, including small, formerly communist countries that allegedly overcame Soviet satellite status. To understand why I use the term “allegedly,” you must understand the nostalgia of older generations, for the good ole simple days of communism, the longing for the days when they were dependent on the...

    “We’re looking to create the confidence that when these kids go into predominately white schools that they can bring counter narratives to the school,” said Gore in an interview with King5 News. The two teachers say that that preschool education must go beyond singing songs and reading picture books. Instead, they plan to carry the discussion of race and racism all throughout the course of the children’s time at the preschool. The curriculum will include telling “the stories that are untold” and the earnest teachers will strive to actively change whatever pre-existing biases the children might have.

    After the election of Donald Trump as president, a professor at Orange Coast College in California, Olga Perez Stable Cox, went into an extended hate-rant against the president-elect. Among other things, she described the Trump election as an “act of terrorism,” labelled him a “white supremacist” and called Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence “one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.” And this wasn’t even a political science class in which one might expect political talk, no matter how irresponsible. Stable Cox is a professor of human sexuality. When a student who recorded the diatribe posted the recording on social media,...

    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...

    One of the course designers, Doreen Bradley, director of learning programs and initiatives at the U-M Library, says misinformation, disinformation, half-truths and propaganda have always been around, but are these days so readily sharable that students encounter a much greater volume than ever before. Students taking the class will: •Learn how to find trusted sources of statistics. •Be challenged to confront their own biases. •Consider how their opinions, and the opinions of others, can affect the interpretation of news items. •Practice dissecting a news graph in order to understand the message that graph is trying to convey. •Assess how their...

    A famous novel by H. G. Wells begins: “No one would have believed in the last years of the 19th century that this world was being watched keenly and closely…[that]intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. And early in the 20th century came the great disillusionment.” That’s a perfect summary of Professor John Dewey and his friends— intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic. They looked at our culture and our schools and came to a hostile conclusion: this place needed fundamental transformation. So John Dewey and...

    South Carolina-A parent is outraged after her 6th grade child was indoctrinated on Islam and was forced to learn about the Islamic conversion prayer (Shahada)! WCSC reports: In worksheets provided to Live 5 News, sixth graders at Alston Middle School were asked to fill in blanks about Islam and match up statements from the Quran with the five pillars of the religion. The mom says she is infuriated and that others agree with her. “Our concern is that if the need permission to teach sexual education, they should be getting permission to teach religious values,” she said.
