    James Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology at Ole Miss, tweeted on October 6, “Don’t just interrupt a Senator’s meal, y’all. Put your whole fingers in their salads. Take their apps and distribute them to the other diners. Bring boxes and take their food home with you on the way out. They don’t deserve your civility.”

    The ideological bent of those overseeing collegiate life is having the biggest impact on campus culture. (Skip) ...participating in extracurricular organizations — the ever growing ranks of administrators have the biggest influence on students and campus life across the country. Today, many colleges and universities have moved to a model in which teaching and learning is seen as a 24/7 endeavor. Engagement with students is occurring as much — if not more — in residence halls and student centers as it is in classrooms. Schools have increased their hiring in areas such as residential life and student centers, offices of...

    The University of Mississippi has condemned a tweet by a faculty member that called on activists to abandon civility and harass Republican senators in public. “Don’t just interrupt a Senator’s meal, y’all,” James Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology, tweeted from his @Insurgent_Prof account on Oct. 6, the day Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court. “Put your whole damn fingers in their salads,” he wrote. “Take their apps and distribute them to the other diners. Bring boxes and take their food home with you on the way out. They don’t deserve your civility.”

    MIDLOTHIAN, VA (WWBT) - A Chesterfield parent is concerned after he was told students would not be singing any Christmas songs with the word “Jesus” in them at upcoming concerts. David Allen said he found out about the situation last week from his child who attends Robious Middle School. "It just seems like... everywhere you look everyone's afraid of stepping on someone's toes or everything is being so sensitive," Allen said. This is not the first time his child has taken part in the winter concert; but it’s the first time something like this has happened. "They were unable to...

    Susan Rice, a former national security official in President Obama’s cabinet, made news last week by suggesting she might run against Sen. Susan Collins, the Maine Republican who cast the deciding vote for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. But on the other side of the country, her son, a Republican activist at Stanford University who’s a fan of President Trump, found himself in a fracas over his support for the newly confirmed justice.

    How can we help “transgender school children” (i.e., school children with gender dysphoria)? The necessarily frank answer is by keeping them away from the overreaching, uncompromising assertions made by the most vocal — though by no means most representative — trans activists. That’s the conclusion I’ve come to after debating a trans “celebrity” for The Spectator podcast about my cover story last week. You can listen here. In my essay, I examine the situation in schools both in the U.K. and the U.S. I start by sharing how, as a teacher in Scotland, I was trained by a government-funded campaign...

    Taking her place among the gaggle of leftists who have felt compelled to broadcast their opinions regarding the sexual-abuse allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, Georgetown University Associate Professor Carol Christine Fair has weighed in on the matter numerous times in recent days. By any measure, Fair ranks as one of the more overtly angry and unrestrained of Kavanaugh's critics. Professor Fair's reflexive rage may stem, in part, from the tragic fact that in her youth, as she has previously disclosed, she was repeatedly molested by an uncle for about a decade. When Christine Blasey Ford went public with her unsubstantiated, uncorroborated...

During the recent Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, we witnessed how college values have become the norms of the Senate. On campus, constitutional due process vanishes when accusations of sexual harassment arise. America saw that when false charges were lodged against the Duke University lacrosse players and during Rolling Stone magazine’s concocted smear of a University of Virginia fraternity.

Ford's veracity hinged on empathy and perceived believability. There...

    Kent State University has cancelled its fall musical production of “West Side Story” following complaints that too many white students landed lead roles. Bridgett Martinez, a musical theatre major who is of Puerto Rican descent, tried out for her “dream role” of Maria, but she said “it all just got screwed up” when “it was given to a white female,” KentWired.com reported. Martinez was instead cast as her understudy, and the other three leads that portrayed Latino characters were given to non-Latino students. The outrage to the casting led to a September schoolwide town hall meeting, in which Eric van...

Endorsers outside of colleges include Association of Title IX Administrators, various Planned Parenthood chapters and the American Sociological Association. Ithaca’s mayor and 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30 for Law & Policy Svante Myrick recognized the holiday, according to The Ithacan on Monday.

    Parents in a Sacramento, California suburban school district were shocked this week to discover that Lt. Gov Gavin Newsom, the Democratic Party candidate for governor in November, is portrayed in a first-grade textbook as a “champion for people’s rights.” The textbook celebrates Newsom alongside such icons as President Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — apparently for his decision, as mayor of San Francisco, to recognize gay marriages in 2004.
