    The principal of a Tennessee elementary school has been fired two and a half years after video emerged of her dragging a special education student through the school. Helen Campbell was fired for 'unprofessional conduct, conduct unbecoming, insubordination, and neglect of duty' from Walter Hill Elementary in Murfreesboro Thursday. Rutherford County Director of Schools Bill Spurlock said that on November 4, 2019, the unnamed student failed to comply to a request from Campbell. She then grabbed the student by the ankles and dragged him through the school's hallway for 570 feet, equivalent to the length of two football fields. The...

    ...This was to be the successful road back to normalcy for public schools. But after two large COVID-19 surges, a year of angry school board meetings, parents claiming teachers were grooming kids for abuse, and fights over everything from mask mandates for students to what books they can read, teachers were already at a breaking point with nearly 500 quitting even if it meant losing their license. On top of all of that, Texas passed a law last year prohibiting teachers from discussing “a widely debated and currently controversial issue of public policy or social affairs," the state's so-called "critical...

    A student at Uvalde High School in Texas who says he knew Salvador Ramos rejected the prevailing media narrative that the gunman was the victim of bullying, and this was the catalyst for his May 24 mass shooting at Robb Elementary School. Ivan Arellano, a senior at Uvalde High School, told WFAA-TV in Dallas that Ramos “was not a good person” and had been a bully himself. “Salvador Ramos was a boy who was not bullied,” Arellano said on Wednesday. “He would try to pick on people but fail, and it would aggravate him.” - more -

    Several children at Uvalde Elementary School made 911 calls begging for help as a lone gunman shot their classmates and teachers during Tuesday’s massacre in the western Texas town of Uvalde that killed 19 students and two teachers. The report of the 911 calls was made by Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw at a press briefing Friday. McCraw also said the on scene commander, the Uvalde police chief, decided the situation was a barricade and not an active shooter, even as 911 calls came in throughout the hour from the children, and held off storming the classroom...

    Shocking new video has emerged showing Texas cops restraining parents as they tried to rescue their kids on Tuesday after a gunman unleashed terror inside the elementary school, as questions grow over why it took so long to get to the shooter after the first 911 call. Salvador Ramos, 18, arrived at the school in Uvalde at 11.30am, crashing his car into a ditch. A school resource officer was at the scene but he failed to stop him from making his way inside. Two other cops also rushed to the school at that time - Ramos had just shot his...

    Joe Biden and Democrats weren’t kidding about their pledge to transform public institutions into gender dysphoria contagion zones. K-12 schools must allow boys into girls’ private areas to obtain federal funds for lunches, breakfasts, and snacks, the Biden administration announced this month. A U.S. Department of Education spokesman told The Federalist the Biden administration’s press releases from several agencies announcing this policy will be followed by formal rulemaking in June. “It seems to be playing politics with feeding poor kids, which is really unfortunate,” John Elcesser, executive director of the Indiana Non-Public Education Association, said via phone amid weeks of...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) took to the Senate floor in the hours after the Robb Elementary School attack and made clear he does not support allowing school personnel to be armed for classroom defense. “After delivering an impassioned and anguished plea to his colleagues calling for stricter gun control measures, Senator Chris Murphy, Democrat of Connecticut, objected against the idea of armed staff on sites like school grounds,” the New York Times reported on Tuesday. Murphy tweeted: “As we look for solutions, this is important. Because over and over – from Parkland to El Paso to Dayton to Uvalde –...

    Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that American parents are lying to their children by telling them they will be safe from mass shootings at school. Swalwell said, “The public is with us, and parents want us on offense. Look at Republicans, they go on offense on wildly unpopular issues like a woman’s right to choose, and they don’t care about public sentiment. They lean in on that. Instead, we are always, always apologizing about, well, we’re not trying to infringe on the 2nd Amendment. We’re not saying gun control. Why don’t we just have guns disciplined...

    Should teenagers be forced to go to high school? Here’s President Obama from the State of the Union speech on Tuesday: [Obama]: "We also know that when students aren’t allowed to walk away from their education, more of them walk the stage to get their diploma. So tonight, I call on every State to require that all students stay in high school until they graduate or turn eighteen." Another idea that sounds good as a bullet point in a speech, but not so much in reality.

    In academia, there have been growing controversies over language guides and usages, including the use of pronouns that some object to as matters of religion or grammar. Now the largest association of science teachers in the world has issued a guide for “anti-oppression” terminology for science teachers. In the guide, titled “Gender-Inclusive Biology: A framework in action,” the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) has called for “gender-inclusive biology,” which includes the abandonment of terms like “parent,” “men,” “women,” “mother,” and “father.” Under the guide, mothers are now referred to as “persons with ovaries” in reference to reproduction cycles while fathers...

    A bomb threat closed all schools in a Wisconsin school district Monday, days after three middle schoolers found themselves under investigation for refusing to address their non-binary classmate by their preferred pronouns. Kiel Middle School received the threat during school hours, at roughly 12:45 pm, shortly after police announced they were working to investigate 'threatening communications' toward district staff regarding the sexual harassment probe. The students, all aged 13 and all enrolled at Kiel Middle, were all hit with a formal complaint earlier this month, for referring to the unnamed student as 'she' or 'her,' rather than 'they' or 'them.'...

    As sex educators, we are deeply concerned about the recent effort to paint our work as “grooming” or “sexualizing” children. In fact, our goal is the exact opposite: to make sure children have the skills needed to repel the tactics used by predators. ...So the question of the moment is: How is sex education different from grooming? “My God! Why is that even a question?” (Rahel Bayar, a former sex crimes and child abuse prosecutor) laughed. “Grooming typically involves secrecy … which is one of the reasons why we teach the difference between secrets and surprises. Secrets have no ending...

    New York City public schools have been blasted for introducing a children's book that features a 'queer' main character that hails AOC and her Squad, while mocking Mitch McConnell. A book titled: What You Don't Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood has reportedly been distributed to NYC school libraries, according to the New York Post. The picture book is intended for 10 and 11-year-olds and is reportedly labeled as part of the Universal Mosaic independent reading curriculum, which the Department of Education is expected to launch next year.

    The National School Boards Association (NSBA) admitted Friday to colluding with senior White House officials to develop a letter asking the federal government to investigate concerned parents speaking at school board meetings as “domestic terrorists.” The admission comes after an internal review, which was prompted by significant backlash to the letter that led Attorney General Merrick Garland to sic the FBI on parents and use “counterterrorism tools” to investigate them. Parents speaking at school board meetings across the country were primarily outraged by the revelations that their children were being indoctrinated with critical race and queer theories, as well as...

    WASHINGTON - At least 135 teachers and teachers’ aides have been arrested so far this year on child sex-related crimes in the U.S., ranging from child pornography to raping students. An analysis conducted by Fox News Digital looked at local news stories week by week featuring arrests of teachers and teachers’ aides on child sex-related crimes in school districts across the country. Arrests that weren't publicized were not counted in the analysis, meaning the true number may well be higher. The analysis found that at least 135 teachers and teachers’ aides have been arrested in 41 states between January 1...
