  • 5 Ways Disavowing Masculinity Changed My Life

    Robert Reece has found that ignoring the Man Code has improved his life enormously. Not only does traditional masculinity oppress women but it also severely restricts the agency of men (a topic, I’ve written about in the past in the context of straight man love and hip-hop), often in simple, taken-for-granted ways. Straight men go to extreme lengths to perform masculinity. They avoid a wide variety of activities that they arbitrarily deem feminine or “gay” without analyzing the detrimental effects of this type of gender policing. Often mundane, seemingly inconsequential activities are heavily policed, inhibiting men’s ability to live freely...
  • More Bad News from Government-Run Education: The Corrosive Centralization of Common Core

    Ive posted hundreds of charts over the past several years, including on favorite topics such as tax code corruption and counterproductive government spending. But arguably the most powerful and compelling chart Ive ever shared is on the topic of education. Prepared by my Cato colleague, Andrew Coulson, it shows that massive increases in spending and bureaucracy (which accompanied increasing federal involvement and intervention) have had zero impact on educational performance. Keep that chart in the back of your mind as we consider what George Will has to say about President Obamas scheme known as Common Core to expand...

    (Update: Adding more on opposition to Core, where Duncan spoke) U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told a group of state schools superintendents Friday that he found it fascinating that some of the opposition to the Common Core State Standards has come from white suburban moms who all of a sudden their child isnt as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isnt quite as good as they thought they were. Yes, he really said that. But he has said similar things before. What, exactly, is he talking about? In his cheerleading for the controversial Common Core...

    It's exactly what critics of the Common Core school curriculum warned about: Partisan political statements masquerading as English lessons finding their way into elementary school classrooms. Teaching materials aligned with the controversial national educational standards ask fifth-graders to edit such sentences as (The president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair, The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation and the commands of government officials must be obeyed by all. The sentences, which appear in worksheets published by New Jersey-based Pearson Education, are presented not only for their substance, but also to...

    There is a phenomenon that is rarely commented on but which is as common as it is significant. For at least two generations, countless conservative parents have seen their adult children reject their core values. I have met these parents throughout America. I have spoken with them in person and on my radio show. Many have confided to me -- usually with a resigned sadness -- that one or more of their children has adopted left-wing social, moral and political beliefs. A particularly dramatic recent example was a pastor who told me that he has three sons, all of whom...

Students are asked to work in groups to choose seven people to save from a shipwreck. To help in their decision, they are given some rudimentary information about each passenger, such as race and religious views. Mr. Blake, for example, is a Mormon who sympathizes with anti-black views, while Mr. Newton is a black power advocated [sic] who is suspected of homosexual activity. You can see the educational value, especially when you take into account Father Frans, a priest who is often...

    Liberals who demand church-state separation would pitch a fit if a public school decided to perform a play that reverently told stories of the Old Testament, whether it was the story of creation, the story of Noah, or Moses or Joseph and his brothers. But somehow, if a public school decides to put on a play mocking God and the Old Testament, that is not a church-state violation. The separation police don't want religious (or atheist) minorities to face religious indoctrination in a public school. But anti-religious indoctrination mocking the Judeo-Christian majority is a glorious festival of free speech. Take,...

    In a 1986 book by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, the future diplomat argued for the aggressive inclusion of a black history curriculum in American schools, claiming that its omission had crippling effects by providing a child with no more than a white interpretation of reality. The 86-page book, A History Deferred, served as a guide for secondary and elementary school teachers wanting to teach Black Studies, and was published by the Black Student Fund, an advocacy group where Rice had an internship. Susans interest in the study of Black history evolved from her desire to...

    It is generally agreed that John Dewey (1859-1952) is the Father of American Education and the Greatest American Educator Ever. The problem with the labels is that John Dewey, albeit a genius, was not an educator in the sense that most people use this word. He was not interested in teaching as most people understand that term, as for example in the statement "I teach French." Dewey was not primarily concerned with teaching new information. He was concerned with inculcating new attitudes. John Dewey was a social engineer -- one might even say a community organizer. He believed that socialism...

Homophile strategists are very adept at manipulating public opinion with an arsenal of six tactics that are based upon deceptions and half‑truths: Exploit the “victim” status; Use the sympathetic media; Confuse and neutralize the churches; Slander and stereotype Christians; Bait and switch (hide their true nature); and Intimidation. One reason these tactics have worked so well is...

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Monday that the rules would allow the state to withhold or rescind reimbursements for districts that don't comply. The state Department of Education issued nutritional guidelines for classroom parties in 2006. Those encouraged districts to trim the number of sugary snacks available and include fruits and vegetables.

    A look inside a teacher's mind could help you understand lesson plans and maybe even guide your child to perform better. 1. If we teach small children, dont tell us that our jobs are so cute and that you wish you could glue and color all day long. 2. Im not a marriage counselor. At parent-teacher conferences, lets stick to Dakotas progress, not how your husband wont help you around the house.

    Sorry, but I can't allow Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius' statement that "we have a lot of re-education to do" slip by without comment. It's amusing when avowed leftists don't even recognize the Marxist buzzwords they're sputtering. Sebelius is attributing the public's vehement opposition to Obamacare to "misinformation given on a 24/7 basis. ... Unfortunately," she said, "there still is a great deal of confusion about what is in (the Obamacare law) and what isn't." She is especially peeved about the vulnerability of seniors, who "have been a target of a lot of the misinformation." (The target of...

    Gay-rights groups' push for anti-bullying legislation and school programs is an effort to "promote homosexuality to kids," according to a conservative Christian activist organization. The accusation has underscored the conflicting attitudes among some politicians and parents who have lent their support to these policies after a string of deadly bullying episodes across the country. Focus on the Family has accused gay-rights groups of using tolerance and anti-bullying programs to introduce curricula and books into schools that promote political aims such as same-sex marriage. The same groups, it says, lobby for gays and other minority groups to be specifically mentioned in...

    Marcel Williams is plopped down on a couch in his family's duplex apartment. The stillness is unusual for the 14-year-old, who a few years ago roamed football fields as a star running back for the national champion Flagler Junior Pee Wee Bulldogs. Since then, Marcel said he had been earning A's and B's at Buddy Taylor Middle School, where he also expected to continue playing football this year. Instead, school just started and Marcel finds himself slouched on the couch, expelled from the classroom and the football field until next year because of something called "tea-bagging" -- a crude taunt...

    Were All Right-Wing Bastards Now that is, if the NEAs logic is to be believed. On the final day of the National Education Associations convention last summer, its outgoing general counsel, Bob Chanin, gave a speech for the ages. After sharing fond recollections of his 41 years as the NEAs top lawyer, he switched gears and started lobbing grenades at conservative and right-wing bastards, including Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, and Forbes. The NEA and its affiliates, by contrast, were the nations leading advocates for public education and the type of liberal social and economic agenda that these groups...

    Amazon review of 1959 book by Merrill Root. Reveals how totalitarian enemies try to control what is taught in public schools. ///START REVIEW/// The Illusion of Choice. Or: How Commies Win and We Lose /// One big question circa 1955 was why so many American POWs in the Korean War had surrendered to Communist interrogation techniques? Why had these young soldiers become what the Communists themselves called "progressives"--that is, men who were Communist sympathizers or collaborators--or both--during their time in captivity? The author's starting point is that these young Americans knew little that was positive about their country, for the...

    Here is video of CNN anchors John Roberts and Kiran Chetry essentially rolling their eyes even as they report on the accusation that Sarah Palin rolled her eyes at a teacher she was having a debate with in Homer, Alaska. Palin encountered the teacher as she walked through town. The woman had a huge banner that attacked Palin as the worst governor ever. Palin engaged the woman in debate, and when learning the woman was a teacher, she appears to raise her eyebrows and look over at daughter, Bristol. Now, the media is attacking her for rolling her eyes at...
