  • College Professors Organize National ‘Teach-In’ to Challenge ‘Trumpism’

    Breitbart ^ | Jan. 15, 2017 | Dr. Susan Berry
    Some 25 colleges and universities – many of them public – have answered a call by professors at UCLA to use their regular class time to “teach, organize, and resist” what they view as the discriminatory political agenda of President-elect Donald Trump. Slated for Wednesday, January 18, the teach-in, dubbed #J18, is taking place between the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and Trump’s inauguration. The event’s planners say: Let it be known that on #J18 and beyond, universities, colleges, and high schools refused to bear silent witness to the politics of hate and fear; that in these times, these places...

    A Philadelphia teachers’ organization urged educators to instruct students about Black Lives Matter (BLM) in the classroom. The Caucus of Working Educators, a branch of a teachers union, wants educators to wear Black Lives Matter gear in the classroom and teach lessons based on the movement, reports ABC News. The organization has already written lesson plans for the week of Jan 23-Jan 28, many of which are based on BLM’s calls for diversity and globalism. “The vast majority of students that we serve are black, and it’s important to affirm the lives of our students,” Charlie McGeehan, a co-organizer, said....

    Students at hundreds of colleges and universities are being systematically indoctrinated into the “New Civics” of social justice activism, according to a report released this past week by the National Association of Scholars. The report’s findings suggest that the suppression of free speech on college campuses that is making headlines is only the tip of a very large iceberg. What lies beneath the surface is a massive, publicly funded program of indoctrination through a remaking of the curriculum as a vehicle for advancing the political agenda of progressivism. The full NAS report, MAKING CITIZENS: HOW AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES TEACH CIVICS, can...

    Jihad Watch citing Express (UK) article ^ | January 9, 2017 | Robert Spencer
    “He was saying that Muslim women shouldn’t be allowed to wear the niqab and he had his head filled with nonsense that Muslims were trying to take over the country.” The fact that there are some Muslims who are trying to take over the U.K. is obvious: the now-imprisoned Anjem Choudary was quite open about it. Do British authorities really think that now there are no longer any such people in Britain? And there are mainstream voices saying that face veils should be banned in the West, including Angela Merkel. Would British authorities put Merkel into a deradicalization program? Will...

    One of the most common arguments in favor of school district transgender "non-discrimination" policies is that such policies prevent "bullying" and "harassment." But what is bullying and harassment? Definitions are often so broad and all-encompassing that people end up being severely penalized for "harassment" when all they did was speak their mind. Real-life examples of how "harassment" is really an excuse for censorship are abundant. In Massachusetts, a renowned urologist was fired by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center because he sent emails to hospital officials expressing concerns about the hospital's "aggressive promotion of and involvement in LGBT activities ... and...

    Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of what’s been labeled “toxic masculinity.” Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today. On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a “hyper-masculinized sporting culture,” acts of domestic terrorism and much more. For example, a class at Dartmouth College this semester, “The Orlando Syllabus,” identifies so-called toxic masculinity as playing a role in the mass murder spree at a...

"I haven't been around this many children in a long time. I've been around a lot of drunk people falling around, so it was very similar, you know, people trying to grab things from me," she joked. Cherry does regular shows at bars around New York City, usually with a much older crowd than the kids she read to here. But the common thread is promoting acceptance. Merrie Cherry performs at...

    The state of Utah has denied it has anti-gay school laws as it defends itself from a lawsuit challenging restrictions on talk about homosexuality in the classroom. The case quotes selectively from state law and school rules, which don’t contain the phrase “anti-gay laws,” state attorneys said several times in court documents filed Tuesday. They say the state school board is immune from a lawsuit and ask for the case to be dismissed. The National Center for Lesbian Rights argues the ban on so-called advocacy of homosexuality stigmatizes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students. …

In one such proposal, it is suggested that students be referred to “comrades” instead of boys and girls. A second idea encourages drag shows so that kids can study the “performance of gender.” The Alberta Teacher’s Association (ATA), the top union for teachers in Alberta, Canada released the 152-page document called, “Prism Toolkit for Safe and Caring Discussions.” The guide is meant to assist teachers in creating an LBGTQ-inclusive environment in the classroom. The guide is intended to create “welcoming, caring, respectful and...

Children's director Alice Webb defended Just A Girl after parents reacted angrily to the CBBC show, which depicts an 11-year-old's struggle to get hormones that stunt puberty, making it easier to have sex-change surgery in the future. Concerned campaigners said it could 'sow the seeds of confusion' in young minds. But Ms Webb said the BBC has a duty 'to make sure that we are stimulating conversation'.

Against the backdrop of terror attacks and rising Islamic extremism worldwide, teacher and author Barbara Lefebvre contends that education on Islam has “never been more necessary”. But the historian, who has published several books on the Holocaust, argues that textbooks’ sanitization of Muslim conquests and their presentation of an Islamic supremacist version of history is completely unhelpful.

One of the youngest was a 3-year old little girl, Jonnie-mae Taylor of Berkeley, who led the chant: “What do you want?” The response was “Justice!” She asked, “When do you want it?” The response: “Now!” Mind you, she is 3 years old.

For instance, teachers will be required to "work with students" to help them determine...

She wants federal “education SWAT teams” to “help” struggling schools (that idea creates interesting visuals). She wants more federal control over school discipline to enforce “school climates” of which she approves. And all education should be geared toward a sweeping, centralized, government-controlled system of workforce-development. The centerpiece of his proposals on education when he ran for governor was to install universal government preschool for all Virginia four-year-olds. We...

For convenience, let's call their goal European Socialism. However, the United States is hostile to Socialism and Communism for another hundred years. Beatrice Webb, founder of the Fabian Society in London, decrees that the word "Socialism" shouldn't be used in America. The recommended euphemism is "Progressivism" and, later on, Liberalism.

So reports EAGnews.org, the flagship website of Education Action Group Foundation, Inc.

    "A district spokesman told the site officials consulted with an attorney about the World Hijab Day event, and were advised that 'there would be more of a legal issue if the school said no to the event' than to hold lessons on the Muslim scarf." Really? What kind of a legal issue? Would the school be brought up on charges of "Islamophobia"? Is that trumped-up propaganda term a crime now? School board president Van Henri White said of the Hijab Day organizer, student Eman Muthana: "She's not trying to make anybody else anything other than who they are, but she...

    In 2014, the West Bloomfield School District was pressing to have two operating millages renewed. As part of the campaign, the district gave a writing assignment to 700 children in grades two through five: Write letters encouraging residents to vote, which the district would use in a pre-election mailing. According to the school district, the fifth-graders were told to write longer letters encouraging a vote, and warned to avoid the terms “vote for” or “vote against” in their text. Doing so would be considered “express advocacy,” which at the time was the only legal restriction on taxpayer-funded electioneering by public...

Her expressions of hatred for America's founding documents coupled with her undying love for Common Core brings the problem to an entirely new level. Plus, she brings a new meaning to the word disgust when talking about those...

    The Motherland party has prepared legal amendments that would order secondary schools to conduct anti-terrorist propaganda among pupils and explain the role of the state in countering extremist groups, such as the infamous Islamic State. "In the current situation the government must oppose the terrorist propaganda in all spheres of our society, but primarily in secondary and high schools. Teachers must form a negative attitude to terrorism and extremism among their students. They must use real life examples to explain the dangers of the separatist, racist and radical religious concepts," Motherland leader Aleksey Zhuravlyov said in comments with Izvestia daily....
