    It seems like every week, there’s a new story of a female high school or even middle school teacher who has been arrested for engaging in relations with one of her students.The women are often young, attractive, and often (seemingly) happily married. It has been happening so frequently that it appears to be a reasonably solid trend, and yet there’s little widespread call to end it.Selwyn Duke of the New American, in his article, Female Teachers Having Affairs With Young Boys — Now a Weekly Occurrence, says that while there are many high-profile cases the media has covered recently, the...

    Dont cry because its over. Smile because it happened. This famous quote attributed to Dr. Seuss applies to many things in life, but NBCs high school drama Rise is not one of them. If anything, we should cry because it happened, and smile now that it is finally over. Unlike the shows title Rise, every episode in this debut season continued to sink to new lows, so we can also smile over the news that the curtain has been lowered for good on the series. The show takes place at Stanton High School, where theater teacher Mr. Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor),...

    Expert panelists said at an event Tuesday that environmental degradation disproportionately affects communities of color, and that promoting racial diversity among environmental science researchers could help address the issue. The Environmentalists of Color Collective at UCLA hosted a forum on climate justice, featuring a panel of environmental justice advocates from Los Angeles. ECC aimed to raise awareness and start a dialogue about environmental racism, said Liliana Epps, a second-year gender studies student and member of ECC who helped host the event. Epps said environmental racism and injustice refer to disproportionate allocations of environmental resources. For example, pollutants tend to affect...

    The threat of security problems and provocations in the wake of the Skripals' poisoning means they should flee now and move to the wild east of Russia. A campaign aimed at bringing home young people studying in the UK and other Western countries has been launched by an official group representing former Soviet states. They are told that there are excellent opportunities in the far east of Siberia instead of London - but the plan has been mocked on social media. In recent years some of Russias brightest students, as well as high-flying financial and technological graduates, have gravitated to...

    Watch: Students at Paris occupation caused thousands of euros worth of damage, says university presidentProtesters caused hundreds of thousands of euros in damage during an occupation of the Pierre Mends-France Center at Paris' Pantheon-Sorbonne University, according to its President Georges Haddad. "I have trouble describing it (the site)," Haddad told CNews on April 17. "I am dismayed by the state of the centre, a real shambles. Violence, drugs, sex itself. I've been told that and I think it's true, things are happening that are shameful." Students and activists started the occupation on March 26 and were cleared out in the...

It just happened all right here, he said. A freshman at Sheldon High who didnt want to be identified said it happened last month as he left a...

    The City of Baltimore, Maryland has been dealing with their fair share of budget problems lately, the same as many other municipalities. In their recently completed 2018 budget negotiations, they wound up having to make cuts so deep they eliminated funding for things like new street lights and trash cans. And all of that was happening at the same time as they struggled to fund law enforcement efforts aimed at tamping down their historic murder rate.

    Baltimore City students scored near the bottom in reading and math compared to children in other cities and large urban areas on an important national assessment given in 2017. In fourth- and eighth-grade reading, only 13 percent of city students are considered proficient or advanced. In fourth-grade math, 14 percent were proficient and in eighth-grade math 11 percent met the mark, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a federally mandated test from the U.S. Department of Education...

    Kashuv is a 16-year-old student survivor of the Valentines Day massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida. He is a Second Amendment advocate (and apparently a really knowledgeable one).Kyle Kashuv to Piers Morgan: Heres what the Second Amendment stands for. (BPR screenshots) Kyles Twitter takedown started after Morgan falsely claimed the Second Amendment was about arming people as part of a well regulated militia not as a bunch of unregulated Rambos. Kashuv responded by saying: So you dont bother to read Federalist Papers? Not your thing?

    ... The effectiveness of these poised, articulate, well-informed, and seemingly preternaturally mature student leaders of Stoneman Douglas has been vaguely attributed to very specific personalities and talents. Indeed, their words and actions have been so staggeringly powerful, they ended up fueling laughable claims about crisis actors, coaching, and fat checks from George Soros. But there is a more fundamental lesson to be learned in the events of this tragedy: These kids arent freaks of nature. Their eloquence and poise also represent the absolute vindication of the extracurricular education they receive at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. The students of Stoneman Douglas have...

    School shooting survivor and anti-gun crusader David Hogg went on a rant denouncing the feeble old drones who are ruining our future to be deposed by a student uprising to seize control of the government and exterminate our oppressors. Our parents failed to protect us, Hogg charged. They have lost their right to rule and maybe even their right to live. They dont know how to use a f*cking democracy. We do! The half million of us who are going to march on Washington shouldnt settle for atta boys and a pats on the head from the generation that has...

    So my daughter brought this home from school. Seems like unusual questions to ask a 1st grader, especially the third question. Would they have asked the same questions while Obama was President?  My daughter knows who Trump is but we don’t talk politics with her because she’s 6. She’s being taught about honesty, respect, kindness, responsibility and hard work. Politics have no place at her age. Of course if she has questions I answer in terms & words she understands.  To ask these questions seems like indoctrination or propaganda research to me. How would a 6 year old form an...

    Common Sense Kids Action California politicians at all levels of government are helping fund a sort-of shadow government of dubious non-profit organizations, which are often tied to said politicians or family members. An example of this is Sen. Hannah Beth Jacksons Senate Bill 947. Rather than teaching Californias students critical thinking skills, California Senator Hannah Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) wants Californias schools to teach kids how to spot fake news. On Jacksons website she offers her definition of fake news, which is right in line with some of the countrys biggest fake news proliferators, MSNBC, CNN and Hillary Clinton:

    As a teacher of public school (17 years), private school (7.5 years), and homeschool (11 years), I have a truly unique perspective on education. Ive experienced k-12 education from just about every angle imaginable. ... In my quarter-century of teaching mathematics, theres almost nothing in education that I can say all teachers, students, administrators, parents, and politicians agree upon, save this: we want our schools to be safe. One of the great tragedies of our time has been the wanton slaughter of helpless students, faculty, and staff in what couldand shouldbe one of the safest places in the world. Sadly,...

    As she addressed the crowd during the walkout at her Idaho high school, Kylee Denny faced heckles and name-calling from a group of students carrying American flags, she said. The counterprotesters included many familiar faces, including her boyfriend's stepbrother. To avoid making a difficult situation worse, Kylee's boyfriend stayed in class during the rally at Hillcrest High School in Idaho Falls, which was part of Wednesday's national school walkout. "I'm dating his stepbrother, which is really incredibly awkward and it's very tense because he was being so hostile about losing respect for me because I was walking out," said Kylee,...
