    Here's a fun fact: Not surprisingly, after being trashed and trampled by the Left for several generations, there has been a downward spiral in the study of history on American campuses from 18 percent in 1971 to 9 percent today, according to historian Daniel Pipes. And, according to the American Historical Association, the reason appears to coincide with the percentage of historians who specialize in women and gender, which has risen from 1% to nearly 10%.during the past 40 years. Not surprisingly, the study of gender is the most important subfield in the academy, followed by cultural history and environmental...

    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...

    (excerpt) By Lukas Mikelionis | 6:10 am, April 18, 2017 The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) administration is allegedly trying to sack an outspoken conservative professor for his resistance to political correctness. Keith Fink, a UCLA professor who teaches classes on entertainment law and free speech, fears the university could an upcoming professional review to help push him out of the institution. Fink has previously caused waves on campus by refusing to embrace trigger warnings and safe spaces, prompting the university to block some students from taking his classes.

    WILMINGTON, Ohio -- For 14 years, Debbie Solsman worked as a beloved lunch lady at Denver Place Elementary School in Wilmington, Ohio. She was fired by the district in February, and her supporters raised an angry social media storm. When a child doesn't have money for lunch, Solsman said they're given a cheese sandwich. She said she would upgrade the lunch for those without money, or give them extra food if they were still hungry. "If they didn't have enough money in their account, they would get a cheese sandwich instead ... The other kids knew when they walked out...

    The case of a British Jewish child forced to leave his Berlin school after being subjected to anti-Semitic violence has provoked outrage and soul-searching in Germany. The 14-year-old, who cannot be named under child protection laws, was beaten, kicked and threatened with a replica gun after he revealed to fellow pupils that he was Jewish. *snip* His British mother, who asked not to be named to protect the identity of her son, told the The Daily Telegraph the school had done little to stop the bullying. “They told us this is normal for adolescents from this background, that they’re just...

    In California, public education is a right afforded to all children from kindergarten through 12th grade, but an anti-immigration activist is looking to strip undocumented children's access to public schools. "This initiative would prohibit illegal aliens from attending public schools in the Yucaipa-Calimesa school district," said Joseph Turner of American Children First. "It would also prohibit children of illegal aliens from attending for free they would have to pay a non-resident tuition fee." Turner filed a ballot initiative which requires 3,200 signatures to have it placed on an election ballot. The community of Yucaipa is located 87 miles east of...

    The alleged rape of a Maryland high school student by two schoolmates — one an undocumented immigrant — has prompted a torrent of threats and hate messages to the school and the school system, a county school spokesman said Thursday. Hundreds of hate-filled emails and calls have been received by Rockville High School and the Montgomery County Public School District, Derek Turner said. The calls and emails came after police said two students, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian and 17-year-old Jose Montano, had been arrested and charged as adults with first-degree rape.

    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...

    Maryland Governor Larry Hogan did not mince words when he discussed how he felt about the Rockville, Maryland rape case where a 14-year-old girl was raped by two classmates, one of whom is confirmed to be an illegal alien (i.e. illegal immigrant). The county school system in question, Montgomery County Public Schools, had issued a letter condemning the rape in which the school superintendent made a public statement on the tragedy. Nevertheless, Governor Hogan said that the school system is not cooperating fully with the governor's office and the state's education agency. Hogan said the following: "Why is an 18-year-old...

    A group of moms in Saratoga Springs, New York has decided to fight back against what they call the radical leftwing indoctrination that has infested the local school system. They call themselves the “Conservative Chicks” and one of their leaders contacted me after reading my new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.” She realized it was time to take a stand after a teacher at the local high school led a classroom presentation on fascism that included a graphic portrayal comparing President Donald Trump to Hitler and Mussolini.

    Because immigrants are not evenly distributed throughout the country, however, some schools have significantly higher percentages of immigrant children. The report breaks down the data by census units called public use microdata areas, which are roughly between 100,000 and 200,000 residents and generally respect county or city boundaries. The average number of public school students in each PUMA is about 20.600

    f asked for the most pressing issue facing Canadians, the answers from the political right vary considerably. Some of the primary issues given include topics such as terrorism, immigration and national security, changes to our voting system, or even the left-wing bias within the media. Chief among the myriad of responses given to this question is the issue of free speech, especially with the recent motion, M-103. Lower down the list, if it even makes the list at all, is the issue of education reform. This needs to change. Any issue deemed important by the political right has its origins...

    Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) was highly critical of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos during her confirmation hearing, citing that DeVos had never attended a public school or sent a child to one, alphanews.com reported on March 2. But Franken seems to like the idea of sending his own children to private schools — they attended Dalton School in New York City where tuition is $44,640 per year. “Dalton is known for educating celebrities and children of royalty,” alphanews.com reported. And Franken himself enjoyed attending a private school. “According to an interview with Harvard Magazine, Franken was a math and science...

    When President Obama came into the White House eight years ago, he promised a "New Era of Responsibility." It didn't work out that way, particularly for student loans, leaving President Trump with a huge mess to clean up. In fact, when it comes to borrowing for college, students are being utterly irresponsible. A recent survey by LendEDU of 500 current college students found that 49.8% of them think that the federal government will forgive their loans after they graduate.

Mayork Kirk Caldwell says police have opened a terroristic threatening investigation into Monday's threat to Temple Emanu-El's preschool. Caldwell notes that Honolulu is one of the most diverse places in the world. He says it's cowardly to scare people and disrupt a preschool. U.S. Sen.

During a single week in 2007, Sandy Smith was diagnosed with breast cancer and her son Andrew was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. After Andrew passed away at eight years old, the Smiths enrolled their two surviving children in a cyber school. “We thought this would be a great opportunity, a great fit for us, because we could take it with us wherever we were going, we would have teachers involved, and we’d...
