    A mother is suing her daughter's school district after she was 'severely beaten' by a transgender classmate last year. Theresa Gooden says her 15-year-old daughter was attacked in the girls' bathroom at Edmond Memorial High School in Oklahoma, on October 26. Gooden claims the school failed to enforce a state law which was signed into legislation in May 2022 and requires public school pupils to use restrooms according to the sex on their birth certificate. Under law passed by Gov Kevin Stitt, transgender students who refuse to follow the policy have to use a 'single-occupancy restroom or changing room'. Gooden...

    BALTIMORE – Some parents fear sending their children to school as Charm City faces a surge in youth homicides and shootings. "The school-to-prison pipeline — or really the school-to-grave pipeline — is really real in Baltimore City," Jovani Patterson, who has two young children, told Fox News. Baltimore City Public Schools held a ceremony last week remembering the 19 students shot and killed within the past year. The youngest victim was 8 years old. The previous year, gunfire claimed the lives of 12 students.

Anger has escalated among the school community due to an upcoming Pride...

    A group of 21 Republican-led states are taking legal action on behalf of Florida parents who sued their daughter's school after teachers launched a 'transgender support plan' for their 13-year-old without asking for their parental consent. January Littlejohn said her then 13-year-old daughter had a group of friends who were 'obsessed' with anything to do with the LGBTQ community, and when three of them began identifying as trans or non-binary her daughter said she was confused about her own gender. Despite bringing their daughter to a counselor help her work through her confusion, the Littlejohns learned that school bosses had...
  • High school students are beginning to resist the LGBT propaganda being forced on them. A school in Oregon has asked boys to stop vandalizing the tampon dispensers that have been installed in their bathrooms.

    (LifeSiteNews) – Lakeridge High School in Oregon recently ran into an interesting problem: boys were ripping tampon dispensers off the walls of their bathrooms and dumping them in the toilet. The school has formally asked the boys to stop destroying the free menstrual products they are being provided with, and gave parents resources on “menstruation, menstrual products, sexuality, and health” in order to help them explain to their children that menstruation is normal for a “person that has a uterus.” Why are there tampon dispensers in the boys’ bathroom to begin with? Oregon’s 2021 “Menstrual Dignity Act” requires all public...

    Parents in the Midwest are speaking out about a controversial book discussing a child's desire to transition genders - after it was pulled in several states but remains in others. 'Call Me Max,' a picture book penned by a transgender man, tells the story of a child who identifies as transgender - and is currently being read aloud to kids as young as four in Minnesota, public school officials in the state have confirmed. Released in 2019, the 32-page story depicts a child who struggles with the gender they were born with, and asks teachers to call them by a...

    Here’s a chilling news item reported by the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity:Last week, the Dallas Independent School District was boasting about its new pilot project, undertaken along with the company Davista. The pilot project, the school district says, uses AI to extensively monitor each student and then sound the alarm if a student deviates from his “baseline” behavior.There are so many disturbing and dystopian aspects to this information.First, using AI — artificial intelligence — to monitor student behavior is allowing an incredibly complex and advanced algorithm (which is really all AI is at this point) to record...

    A Thursday evening event held at Washburn High School in Minneapolis, located in an upscale neighborhood, was planned as a “Minnesota nice” event, celebrating diversity and the arrival over the last 3 decades of a Somali immigrant community that now comprises almost one-fifth of the city’s population. A video on the school’s website offered free admission and free food. But as the event unfolded in the school’s auditorium, it turned into a nightmare. Alpha News reports: Mayhem erupted at a south Minneapolis high school Thursday evening during a planned Somali cultural event and performance that resulted in fights, a stabbing,...

    he city Department of Education is ignoring pleas to help an Upper West Side public school so overwhelmed by an influx of migrant kids that it can no longer provide popular programs due to a lack of space, angry parents told The Post.

    No white knight would be riding in to rescue their kids—they were it. California mom Erin Friday, 56, found out she was it for her then 11-year-old daughter. It started innocently enough: just a few boyish-sounding nicknames and a couple of extra letters from the alphabet. But innocent it was not. A few girls, including Friday’s young one, were heard chattering in the front yard about some new things they learned at school. They were hip to fresh trends while, in their minds, boring old mom was the know-nothing dinosaur who was way behind the times. “Five girls, each one...

    A school district in Fargo, North Dakota, will conceal the gender identities of students from parents in spite of a state law prohibiting the policy. "We will not openly out any student because of one law if we know that that's going to cause harm to that child," said Fargo Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Rupak Gandhi, who is backed in the decision by the school board. North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, a Republican, signed the bill earlier in May that banned schools from withholding or concealing "information about a student's transgender status from the student's parent or legal guardian."

    A high school located in Texas has been forced to postpone its commencement after just 15 percent of the senior class reached the requirements to graduate. In a letter sent to parents and families, Marlin ISD Superintendent Darryl Henson said most seniors did not make the cut due to low grades and attendance records. District officials have postponed the ceremony to June in order to give students the time to catch up and hopefully check the boxes needed to obtain their diplomas. 'As a school district, we really want to make sure we're making the best decision in the interest...

    Chicago-area parents are voicing their outrage over public schools allowing migrant children to enroll without health documentation, as cities across the United States are dealing with an influx of migrants into their communities. Mother Jennifer Preston joined "Fox & Friends First" Thursday to discuss the hypocrisy of requiring vaccination records from residents, while migrants are allowed to enroll without such documents. According to Fox 32, around 40 to 50 migrant children were expected enroll at one elementary school in the Little Village area and up to a dozen would go to a nearby high school for the final weeks of...

    Coordinated lawsuits are targeting schools and parents across the country. Biden launched his 2024 presidential campaign with an ad attacking Republicans for keeping a book featuring a 10-year-old performing sex acts out of schools. “’Lawn Boy‘, one of the books shown in the Biden ad, includes lines like, “I was ten years old, but it’s true. I put Doug Goble’s ____ in my mouth.” According to Biden, whose administration had previously colluded to investigate parents rallying against sexualizing schoolchildren with graphic materials like these as domestic terrorists, anyone opposed to having ‘Lawn Boy’ in schools is a “MAGA extremist”.

    A North Carolina principal is under fire after handing over keys to the school to let students pull off a 'senior prank' that created mass chaos and left teachers 'in tears.' Burns High Principal Jennifer Aberly thought a few students were going to put up streamers and balloons on Thursday last week - but arrived the next morning to find significant damage in the hallways and classrooms. Students greased floors and door handles, put potted plants in toilets, stacked desks, and scattered teachers' personal belongings while inside unsupervised.

    However, many school districts and parents argue that giving children the option to drink flavored milk is a way to get them the much-needed health benefits that they would miss if they don’t like regular milk. In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, Urban School Food Alliance executive director Katie Wilson criticized the proposal, arguing that the Agriculture Department is considering taking a product that is widely enjoyed by students and includes “nine essential nutrients” and telling them they will have to “drink plain” milk instead. “What are they trying to prove,” Wilson added.
