    Leaked documents from the Philadelphia public school system shows Philadelphia’s Office of School Climate and Culture has introduced that teaches children from kindergarten through second grade about George Floyd and Black Lives Matter, and warns about a “pyramid of hate” that starts with racial stereotyping and jokes and ends in “genocide.” Documents obtained by reporter Christopher Rufo show that teachers are encouraged to ask the four-year-old children if they have heard of Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, and asks them to “share their feelings” about the Chauvin trial verdict.Students are then shown a slideshow that reveals a “social story for...
  • Biden Set to Push Critical Race Theory on U.S. School

    The woke revolution in the classroom is about to go federal. In an early but revelatory move, President Biden’s Department of Education has signaled its intent to impose the most radical forms of Critical Race Theory on America’s schools, very much including the 1619 Project and the so-called anti-racism of Ibram X. Kendi. (Kendi’s “anti-racism” — which advocates a massive and indefinite expansion of reverse discrimination — is more like neo-racism.) Biden is obviously co-opting conservatives’ interest in reviving traditional U.S. history and civics to deliver its perfect opposite — federal imposition of the very ideas conservatives aim to combat....

    The stupidest ideas in the history of education were brought into the schools and made to seem normal. The Communist International started its worldwide campaign of subversion and sabotage circa 1920. The goal was always the same: wage a disciplined, low-budget attack on soft targets such as foundations, unions, universities, education, and media. The M.O. was the Fabian three-step: take a job, work up to higher management, overthrow the country. SNIP For example, if you wanted to make American citizens weak and unpatriotic, who gets this assignment? If you want children to be illiterate and without ambition, whom are you...

    Most American children are trapped in public elementary and secondary schools that are either mediocre or dysfunctional. Readers who wonder if this statement is polemical should know that for almost two decades, the federal government’s National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the nation’s highly respected school assessment tool, has documented that on average, less than 40 percent of rising 4th graders score “proficient” or higher in reading. In the latest 2019 NAEP assessments, 35 percent of children entering 4th grade attained a proficient reading score or higher. In no state did even 50 percent of rising 4th graders score proficient...

    We all remember the endless hours spent in our school classrooms learning about declensions, trigonometry or the French future perfect tense. But it turns out that adults really wish they had been taught practical life skills such as how to change a tire, write a CV or plaster over holes and cracks. Money worries headed up the top 20 list of what parents wish they had learned at school — namely how to save cash, advice on budgeting and how to invest. The survey of 1,000 parents revealed that how to cook everyday meals and how to start a business...

    Anti-American brainwashing starts early The Left’s unceasing efforts to turn the young against America will be supercharged with your tax dollars if a radical new plan devoting $6 billion to leftist educational indoctrination becomes law. The proposed “Civics Secures Democracy Act,” introduced in Congress last month would authorize $1 billion per year in federal grants over six years for K–12 curriculum development, teacher training, and research on the teaching of history and civics.
  • CANDACE OWENS: Why The American Education System Is Systematically Producing Failures

    The American education system is producing adults with more degrees that are infinitely dumber — and that’s not just an opinion. In recent years, students are graduating at higher rates, yet they are scoring lower and lower on standardized tests. How is that possible? It’s possible because our education system is being effectively rinsed of hard academics and objective metrics, in favor of woke, emotional, psychological conditioning. In essence, students today are being taught that it’s not what you know, it’s how you feel. How you feel is the goal of education initiatives like critical race theory, and “anti-racism”— initiatives...

    Like a cancerous tumor that has metastasized in the body, Critical Race Theory and its variants including social justice; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI); anti-racism; cultural competency; and implicit bias have poisoned all aspects of public education and even some private schools. These hateful and racist philosophies have become entrenched in every level and aspect of American public education. The basis for Critical Race Theory is the belief that America is systemically racist and divided into a racial hierarchy with black people at the bottom. For America's inherent racism to end, Caucasians must recognize that through the color of their...

    A group of parents alarmed by what they see as left-wing indoctrination sweeping through K-12 schools on Tuesday announced a new online clearinghouse of information designed to help families navigate what’s happening in their children’s classrooms. Nicole Neily, president of the group, Parents Defending Education, said parents are hungry for information to fight back against a curriculum that increasingly promotes racial and social justice ideology. “There’s this feeling among some that this is just a New York and California thing, but it’s not; it’s everywhere,” she said. “It’s in private schools, parochial schools and red states.” Schools across the country...

    California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world." POLL: What scares you the most? On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

SDUSD students are currently learning in an online-only format and are expected to move into a hybrid model on April 12, where they will be learning in a combination of in-person and online formats, according to the school district's website.

    According to a report by the McKinsey Global Institute, which first appeared in late 2017, 800 million workers across the world could lose their jobs to robots, including one-third of the workforce in the United States. And while the report says that those who operate machines and "food workers" will suffer most, robots or automation, the report claims, will displace its share of mortgage brokers, paralegals, accountants and back-office workers. CBS's 60 Minutes last night had a segment on the future of robotics, showing the technology's rapid advances. By 2030, if the experts are correct, anywhere from 39 million to...

    More than a dozen Oakland elementary schools and preschools will not reopen as planned Tuesday after the majority, if not all, teachers at the sites opted not to return until required to do so in mid-April, despite an $800 incentive and prioritized vaccinations. District officials had to rescind reopening plans at six elementary schools and 10 preschools Thursday, days before students in preschool through second grade were scheduled to head back after seven months of distance learning. Under an agreement between the district and the unions, those students were scheduled to return to school on March 30, with all elementary...

    The subtitle of this article might be The Strange Semantics of Subversion. Oh, the irony of it all. I remember reading, years ago, that Liberals and Communists were on opposite sides of the political spectrum. Communists oppose individual freedom. On the other hand, liberal used to means someone who celebrates individual freedom, as in liberty, liberation, liberating, and libertarian. A Jeffersonian Liberal was anyone who honored all the ideas contained in our Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights. That's simple enough. A big problem for the far-left, however, was that they hated all those ideas. They would kill millions...

Students say they’re tired of mass shootings happening in their own backyard. “To see these kinds of things, happen in our community over and over again, it’s just insane that it’s been this long, and action hasn’t been taken,” said student organizer Hermela Goshu.

    It was one year ago when school buildings began to shutter and students retreated to their homes to try and stop the spread of the coronavirus. While not technically homeschooling (they were still enrolled in their school and working on curriculum prescribed by teachers, not their parents), many families got a hint of what homeschooling might feel like, and how the dynamics of their family might change were they to educate their children at home. If you only looked at social media, you would think it a complete disaster. Numerous posts on Twitter and Facebook decrying how unprepared and overwhelmed...
