  • High School Confiscates Yearbooks After Deeming ‘Build That Wall’ Senior Quote ‘Inappropriate’

    A North Carolina high school has confiscated pre-ordered yearbooks after school officials and district administrators deemed a student's "build that wall" senior quote "inappropriate." Richmond Early College High School allowed graduating students to put a quote of their choice under their yearbook picture. One student chose their senior quote to be "Build that wall," crediting Donald Trump for the statement. Only after the yearbook was published and distributed to students did Principal Tonya Waddell deem several senior quotes inappropriate, including Trump's oft-repeated campaign promise to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. At that point, 22 yearbooks had been pre-ordered,...

    A high school student who stabbed a fellow pupil in the neck with a pencil can't be expelled under her school district's weapons policy, a Commonwealth Court panel has ruled. In fact, Judge Patricia A. McCullough wrote in the state court's opinion, every Pennsylvania classroom would be empty if her court agreed with the Pittsburgh Public School District that a sharpened pencil is a prohibited weapon. The case revolves around what happened between the 10th grader and another student at the Barack Obama International Academy on May 9, 2016.

    Last year I did an interview with two communist militants in a Chicago Mall Food Court entitled Coffee With Communists, WHO THEY ARE WHY THEY KILL The two were part of a little known Marxist street gang known as Anti-racist Action or Antifa. These disgusting animals wanted to kill Americans and bragged that they had killed Americans, namely veterans. Their message to America, revolution was coming and that those who opposed socialism and opposed their agenda would be violently killed. In the past week Antifa made headlines and is no longer under the radar. In Berkeley and in other cities,...

    DOWNINGTOWN, Pa — An assistant principal at Downingtown STEM Academy has been placed on administrative leave after a video captured him screaming and cursing at two teenage abolitionists outside the school Friday afternoon. Sixteen-year-old Conner Haines and his 19-year-old sister Lauren went to the school to talk to students about the abortion holocaust and share the Gospel with them. Abolitionists frequently take signs and literature to the public sidewalks outside high schools as part of Project Frontlines, a nationwide effort to expose high school students to the evil of abortion, challenge their worldviews, and show the way of salvation from...

Life Legal is appealing the decision.Bill Diss became “enemy number one” with his local Planned Parenthood affiliate when he led opposition to a new PP mega-facility in downtown Portland.When Planned Parenthood employees wanted to come into Diss’ classroom to recruit students for their “Teen Outreach Program,” or...

    An Oregon public school teacher says he’s on the verge of being fired because of his outspoken views against Planned Parenthood and abortion.

Oh, hell no... this can not be allowed to stand. You can NOT have your cake and eat it too. If someone would fund this teacher, he would sue every school system that did that to him and use this "Hamilton" case as a precedent to win.

    Hey everyone, sorry if people think this is a vanity but I think people need to watch this because like as not this will be happening in schools all over the nation. There is no doubt in my mind that your kid could face 2 weeks detention even expulsion for saying something like, "Caitlyn Jenner is not a Hero." When I went to school, people also got in trouble for less. You were more likely to get detention or suspension for praying over your meal than giving the Hitler salute. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jtxym6orSNc SEASON 19 EPISODE 1 STUNNING AND BRAVE

    You might not be surprised to learn that 84 percent of church-going Christians send their children to public schools. Nevertheless, you may be astonished to learn that half of all public school teachers consider themselves church-going Christians. These two tidbits come from Barna Research. Nevertheless, we’ve had controversies throughout the country whenever valedictorians attempt to quote scripture or young students try to attach religious messages to candy canes at Christmas. These dramas unfold because frequently teachers do not know the rules governing religious expression in public schools, which allow all of the above to occur, according to Eric Buehrer, president...

Public school teachers especially in California really don't give a damn about our kids... They take our money, raise our kids to be commies, illiterates and...
