    A new dress code at Boston Latin School has sparked outrage by students. More than 500 students have signed an online petition protesting the school’s new dress code, which bans several things such as spaghetti straps and “gang-related clothing or colors.” Students say the policy discriminates against female students and minorities.

    A growing number of college are banning hard liquor on campus in a move to curb extreme drinking — but students are still getting their party on, and some are adding an extra element of risk to their binges. A group of young people from the Chicago area spoke to NBC News, for TODAY's Campus Undercovered series, about the phenomenon dubbed "drunkorexia." "If I knew that I was going to be drinking at night, then I would not eat beforehand because of the calories," one student named Alyson said.
  • US school students of color: We want teachers who look like us

    10/09/2016 12:25:23 PM PDT · by BBell · 81 replies
    American school kids prefer teachers of color, a new study shows. As the demographic make-up of US students has tipped toward a minority-majority, much has been made of the contrast seen in the nation's predominantly white body of teachers. For the first time, educators now have a glimpse of what that racial imbalance might mean to middle and high school students, thanks to new analysis conducted by researchers at New York University. Using survey data compiled by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the researchers canvassed the thoughts of more than 50,000 students about 1,680 teachers. The survey data included...

    No. I've experienced first-hand how racial tension is conquered. Here's how you really do it. So I see that a high school in Oregon thinks it’s a good idea to make students take a survey about “white privilege.” It asks them if they would agree to statements like “I can be in the company of people of my race most of the time,” or, “If I should need to move, I can be pretty sure of hassle-free renting or purchasing in an area in which I would want to live.” These are designed to make white students believe they are...

    Teaching students in western Mexico's Michoacán state are holding a police chief hostage, demanding the release of arrested fellow students, authorities said Wednesday. On Tuesday afternoon, in the indigenous village of Carapan, teaching students took Chilchota municipality police chief Alfredo Lucio Rios Chávez hostage after he approached them as they were setting fire to three vehicles - a passenger bus, a tractor trailer and a pickup truck - and having a confrontation with security forces. Rios approached the angry students to "try to calm the kids down and they grabbed him as a hostage and took him away," Chilchota Mayor...

    New videos have surfaced of a Yale professor being protested and yelled at by students for sending an email telling them to ignore people dressed in offensive or racist Halloween costumes. The fallout of the email saw Nicholas Christakis, the master of Silliman College at Yale, and his wife Erika, a faculty member, resign from their positions at the university. The new videos, which appeared on The Federalist, give a greater insight into what the students were demanding from Christakis, and his defense that cultural appropriation on Halloween is permissible. Many students in the mob of almost 100 can be...

    A skyrocketing number of students are seeking crisis counseling at Eastern Carolina University, prompting the school to make sure it educates pupils not just on academics but also on how to cope with life's challenges. ECU reported a 16 percent increase in student counseling appointments in the past two years. Those involving a crisis were up 52 percent, according to a July report that shocked officials on the Greenville, North Carolina, campus. "It wasn't just the numbers, it was the intensity and severity," said ECU Director of Counseling Valerie Kisler-van Reede. "It felt like something very different was going on...

    Students at the University of Chicago have been warned not to expect safe spaces or trigger warnings in the wake of several disrupted events at the institution at the hands of protesters. University officials are said to have told first-year students starting in the fall of its commitment to freedom of expression, saying it wanted civility and mutual respect but that it would still seek out ideas or opinions that were unpopular. The move comes after three high-profile incidents this year in which speakers invited to the university were interrupted or shut down and amid a trend of increasing political...

    The piece below was originally published at the advice column I run, Ask a Manager. After it was printed there, it went viral and turned into fodder for barbs about how young people today are overly coddled, immature, and entitled. Some commenters blamed college campuses for teaching students that anything they don't like can be solved with a petition for change--as if this generation was the first to have discovered protesting, and as if agitating for change is inherently a bad thing. My belief, as the advice columnist who answered the original letter, is that this isn't about "young people...

    Yale University has found itself embroiled in controversy once again this year after English students complained that courses in the department were 'hostile' to students of color. Under the most fire is the Major English Poets course, a prerequisite for undergraduates in the major to study the works of at least seven major poets, all of whom are white men. An anonymous petition has demanded the department not only change the English 125/126 course, which has existed since 1920, but abolish it entirely. It also asks that the major's pre-1800/1900 requirements be changed to include literature relating to 'gender, race...

They want officers unarmed. “So, I do believe I have mentioned the die-in before—what that entails is a lot of us who are abused so to say…we’re going to be laying down in the street outside so [the president] can see us so he knows what the Board of Trustees does to us, which is it kills us,” one protester explained.

    Mexico's national human rights commission has said two federal police officers participated in the disappearance of 43 students in 2014. It's the first time national agents have been implicated in the case. The commission announced Thursday it had found an eyewitness who alleges federal officers were present at the scene of the abduction in Mexico's southwestern Guerrero state. Jose Larrieta Carrasco, the commission member investigating the case, said the new evidence suggested the officers did nothing to stop local police from taking the youths away. The 43 student teachers disappeared in the city of Iguala on September 26, 2014. Investigators...

    When I worked my way through college in the 1940s, tuition was $200 to $250 a year. My children’s tuition was $2,000 to $2,500 a year, and my grandchildren’s college education each cost $20,000 to $40,000 a year for tuition alone. College is so expensive that only about half of today’s college graduates think their degree was worth the cost, according to a survey by Gallup-Purdue. The more debt the student incurs, the more likely he is to doubt that he received his money’s worth. The total amount of student debt in the United States is a staggering $1.2 trillion,...

They've overwhelmingly authorized an open-ended strike like the one that closed schools for more than a week in 2012, though that would still be weeks away.
