    NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The mother of a Norfolk student turned to 10 On Your Side after she was charged by police. “I tried to be fair, but it’s not fair,” said Sarah Sims. “There is nothing fair about this.” In late September, Sims says she had enough. She tells 10 On Your Side her 9-year-old daughter was getting bullied at Ocean View Elementary. She says repeated calls and emails to the school went un-returned. “The thing that bothers me the most is that I am yet to get a response from anyone in the administration,” Sims added.

    Hundreds of New York City teachers who'd lost their full-time positions but stayed on the payroll will be headed back to classrooms within the next few weeks. About a third of those teachers, it turns out, have faced legal or disciplinary charges. The city's education department announced this summer that schools that hadn't filled all their teaching positions by Oct. 15 would be assigned educators from the "absent teacher reserve" pool. According to a spokesman at the New York City Department of Education, the "matches" between teachers and schools are being made now, and those teachers will go into schools...

    CORNING, Calif. - Witnesses tell a chilling account of two gunman who opened fire at Rancho Tehama Elementary School near Corning Tuesday morning. Coy Ferreira, whose daughter is a kindergarten student, was dropping his daughter off for class just before 8 a.m. when he heard what sounded like a firecracker. A school secretary ran out and yelled for the kids to get in the classrooms because someone was shooting at the school. Ferreira said he ran into a classroom with 14 students. He said the series of shots came through the classroom windows, hitting one student. Ferreria said a young...

    Every time jihadi terrorists murder innocent people, political commentators and analysts rightfully start trying to find answers to questions such as: “What made the terrorists do that?” “How were they radicalized?” “Where were they brainwashed?” A look at Turkey -- whose constitution states it is a secular republic, but whose educational system functions otherwise -- may yield some eye-opening answers.

    A proposed education regulation in Delaware allows children to self-identify as any race and gender regardless of reality. “All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race,” Regulation 225 says, and that will be maintained in official records. The regulation stipulates that students’ parents may only be notified of their child’s trans-race or transgender identification if they are “supportive of the student” and his or her confusion. It says: A school may request permission from the parent or legal guardian of a minor student before a self identified gender or race is accepted; provided, however, that...

    Newly released FBI documents in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting paint an even more disturbing portrait of killer Adam Lanza, suggesting his fascination with children verged on the obscene. Connecticut investigators found a file on Lanza’s computer “advocating pedophiles’ rights and the liberation of children,” a recently unsealed document says. They also reportedly found a screenplay about a relationship between an adult male and a young boy. There’s no evidence Lanza, 20, acted on sexual interests in young children before the school massacre, which killed 20 elementary school children and six adults before Lanza killed himself.

That teacher is recovering after her kids said she was brutally attacked by the parents of a child who weren't happy with the way she handled a punishment.

    So my daughter came home from college a few weeks back saying they're teaching "White privilege, social justice, inequality and income inequality" at her college....a Christian college. There's a white privilege survey that she did, discussions on inequality, unfair advantages, etc--- I was appalled as was my daughter. However, she stood up in class calling out these lies and the teacher let her speak at the end to make her point but ran out of time. The "professor" said she could continue the next day---which she did, but there was a student that was brought into that particular class that's...

    A Virginia school district says that a Bible verse engraved on bench memorializing a deceased student must be removed because it is not legal. Charlotte County School Superintendent Nancy Leonard said that the school board determined that the engraving on the bench was illegal because it violated the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause, which states that the government cannot “establish” a state-sponsored religion. “We found that the memorial bench that we currently have is not legally compliant because of the Establishment Clause (in Constitution), because of the Bible verse,” Leonard told WAFF. The verse from Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do...

    Is it permissible to desecrate the American flag for educational purposes? That question is at the center of a raging firestorm in suburban Chicago after York High School allowed teachers to desecrate an American flag – in the school’s library. Staff members from the English and social sciences departments placed an American flag on the floor in the school’s library on Sept. 26 as part of a project on First Amendment rights. Students were not permitted to walk-on or deface the flag. The school gave the defiled flag to the American Legion so it could be properly retired. A spokesperson...

    Whenever a journalism school claims it has found a new and improved way to train reports, it seems, the result is an even more partisan and ideological training camp than what is already in place. Columbia University leads the way in this sort of pedagogy. “Independent journalism requires skepticism as a mandatory practice,” Giannina Segnini writes in the Columbia Journalism Review. “No matter how truthfully a presidential administration conducts itself, reporters should always question, contrast, and complement official information to find the closest version to the truth.” So far so good, but where has she been for the past eight...

    Ironically the radical left protests pumping hormones into cattle and poultry, yet they applaud when it’s done to a child “Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”—G.K. Chesterson Concerned parents of school-aged children know that sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists are destroying our public schools and universities. But Charter schools were thought to be safe from these dark ideological radicals. Sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists believe that there are no differences between men and women, and that “male” and “female” are merely social constructs.
