  • My Daughter Brought This Home From School. Seems Like Unusual To Ask A 1st Grader

    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,...

    (CNN) - While students in a South Carolina school participated in the National School Walkout this week, a custodian helped herself to their cash, police said. The incident occurred at Richland Northeast High School on Wednesday. Aisha Evans, a custodian at the school, went into a classroom while students were outside and rummaged through three book bags, the Richland County Sheriff's Department said. In all, Evans stole $180, the department said.

    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,...

    Lacey Township NJ -( Two students at Lacey Township High-school, NJ were suspended for posting a picture of themselves shooting guns at a private gun range with the caption fun day at the range. The school's zero tolerance policy says that students cannot be in possession of weapons at any time, whether on or off campus. Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs today demanded in a lawyer letter that the Lacey Township School District immediately rescind disciplinary actions taken against several students for posting social media photos of themselves near firearms at a target range.

    <p>Gov. Andrew Cuomo asked state education officials Thursday to overturn any disciplinary action taken against students who participated in the mass walkout against gun violence.</p> <p>In the last 24 hours, there have been several reports of New York State schools disciplining students and faculty for participating in yesterdays historic events to stop gun violence. In at least one disturbing incident, it was reported that the school physically blocked the exits to prevent students from demonstrating, Cuomo said in a letter to state Education Commissioner Mary Ellen Elia.</p>

    A video of a Virginia father's unorthodox punishment for his bullying son has gone viral. Bryan Thornhill shared a Facebook Live video on March 1 showing his 10-year-old son running to school in the rain as punishment after he was kicked off his school bus for three days for bullying another student. In the video, Thornhill says that he "does not tolerate" and "cannot stand" bullying, and refers to the unusual punishment as "old school, simple parenting." The father of two also claims that since his son has been running the mile trek to school every day, his attitude has...

    At the risk of being called cold or harsh, let me begin by saying every American has a right to his/her opinion on just about any issue. Including guns. Now that weve got that out of the way, let me add this: the people playing partisan politics on the graves of the 17 innocent dead people from Douglas High School are despicable. I dont care what age they are. Over the last couple of weeks, a variety of conservative voices have gotten in trouble for insinuating that the anti-gun protesters coming out of Douglas High School seem far too practiced...

    A high school student who survived the deadly Florida shooting on Valentines Day that left 17 people dead has slammed his teacher on social media, calling him an opportunist and a coward, after he allegedly wouldnt unlock his classroom door and let students in, a report from the Sun-Sentinel said on Friday. Josh Gallagher, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., shared his account on Twitter. He said he was in math class with his teacher Jim Gard when the fire alarm went off. Students began to evacuate, and while Gallagher was near the stairwell, he...

    I keep having to make this post but I'll try it one last time so everyone clearly understands. The name of the zine is No Whites Allowed. It's a zine for QPOC and by QPOC, Ramey wrote, noting that while white people are welcome to come to the event, the main goal is to celebrate and empower people that society routinely ignores and rejects. Support from white people and heterosexual people is appreciated but is not necessary for the success of this event, she continued, stating in a second comment that inclusion is not inherently good, and exclusion is not...

    The man who killed 17 people at a South Florida high school had more than half his rounds remaining when he dropped his rifle and fled, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told CNN. The shooter had fired about 150 times when he dropped his AR-15-style rifle and escaped from school property by blending in with fleeing students. He left 180 rounds of ammo unused, the official said. "Investigators have found indications that the shooter may have tried to break a window, which leads them to believe he wanted to use the area as a sniper's perch to...

    Students at the Parkland, Florida High School were so confused they thought the pop, pop, pop sound came from an active shooter drill. A father reports that a student told him they had a fire drill and were supposed to have an active shooter drill. A new aspect MSNBC is reporting is new to me. Senator Bill Nelson, Democrat, from Florida said the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, wore a gas mask and used smoke grenades so the kids would come out in the hallways and thus, he had the opportunity with crowded hallways to start picking off people. Student Rebecca...

    ( - The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

    Moronic American Millennial students that socialism and communism starve their citizens either on purpose to keep them under strict control or through their disastrous economic policies I watched countless videos of Millennials interviewed on various campuses around the nation by people with knowledge of history or survivors of communism who were lucky enough to escape to this country or other western nations whose economies are based on the capitalist free market model and not the socialist one. In every video, the well-fed and cared for Millennials, in their indoctrinated and delusional rage, shout the praises of socialism and communism without...

    Are they really going there? Yes, they apparently are. Too late for Rachel Dolezal, alas. Dolezal identifies as 'transracial' a belief that would have been affirmed if she were a Delaware student today. The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as Regulation 225. Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard childrens protected characteristics, such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity. Section 7.4(1) of 225s Prohibition of Discrimination Code states, All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race, which is...

    We've come full circle on school discipline: Now students beat the teacher. "City teachers pleaded with district administrators Monday to help support them as they deal with what they are calling an unprecedented level of misbehavior among children, some of which is resulting in physical violence against teachers," Felix Rodriguez Lima reported on Fox 43 from Harrisburg, Pa. on November 21, 2017. "The Harrisburg Education Association says the behavioral issues have prompted the resignations of at least 45 teachers between July and October, and further resignations have since occurred, according to association president Jody Barksdale." "Some of the worst behavior...

    HANOVER, N.H. Dartmouth College students say three psychology professors facing sexual misconduct allegations created a "hostile academic environment" marked by excessive drinking, favoritism and at times inappropriate behavior. The attorney general's office began a criminal investigation last month after learning about allegations against psychology professors Todd Heatherton, Paul Whalen and Bill Kelley, all of whom have been put on paid leave and have had their access to campus restricted. Authorities haven't released any details, but 15 undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students recently wrote to the school newspaper, The Dartmouth, alleging the three created a hostile environment "in which sexual...
