Police initially detained two people but later said one was not involved. The other – a 19-year-old who investigators think may have...

    Massive brawl breaks out outside Glendale CA school board. (Credit: Sergio Olmos)A huge fight broke out outside the Glendale School Board meeting in Los Angeles as parents, many of them from the Armenian-American community, came to protest the school’s pride events. Naturally, the left-wing zealots—read “Antifa”—showed up in force, and as you will see, some serious punches were thrown on both sides. A heavy police presence attempted to stop the fighting, violently pulling apart combatants to prevent serious injury.Someone with a bullhorn shouts, “Do not engage! Step away. We are not here to fight!” Maybe that person wasn’t there to...

    The Washington Post just spent 5,000 words and two years of reporting to smear something it demanded every parent do just three years ago.Record-breaking numbers of families continue to abandon public schools after lockdowns exposed their mass abuse of children, and The Washington Post is willing to descend into tabloid smear mode to try to stop them. Last week it profiled a couple who were homeschooled and have put their own children into public school. The article takes the couple’s side against their own parents, airing wild allegations of systemic child abuse against all homeschoolers based on the testimony of...

    Transgender youth: 'Forced outing' bills make schools unsafe. TULSA, Okla. -- Al Stone-Gebhardt worked hard in school to make sure he graduates in May, and he spent hundreds of dollars on commencement regalia, but he is fully prepared not to participate in the ceremony. The 17-year-old, who is transgender, said he feared his high school, Tulsa Union, might use his deadname — the name he was given at birth but no longer uses — on his diploma and during the ceremony instead of his legally changed name. He has had teachers call him by his birth name, sometimes inadvertently, and...

    Former high school track and field athlete Chelsea Mitchell and her attorney Christiana Kiefer joined ‘Varney & Co.’ to discuss her ongoing lawsuit against the state of Connecticut over its transgender policy. The former high school track and field athlete said her experience competing with trans women was 'frustrating and disheartening. "All four years of my high school experience, I raced against these two biological males who ended up taking four state championships, two honorary awards, and countless other opportunities for myself to advance. And it's not fair to force people to participate against biological males, and so that's why...

    American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten claimed Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that people are “getting really angry” at the education policies of Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “I want to come back to the other policy which is I think the most unpopular of all in sort of this new mom’s group and the polling that’s out is the book bans.” Weingarten said, “Two things are unpopular, the book bans and also why you would get rid of social emotional learning when we have a mental health crisis? We have to make sure that kids feel...

    My friends and I are bracing for the annual rainbow onslaught poised to swamp families coast to coast this June. This year’s storm looks like a Category 5; it’s already blowing the doors off the nearby Target and wreaking havoc on the Bud Light warehouse. As bad as it is out in corporate land, it’s worse in the public schools, where it’s harder to see — almost like they’re trying to keep it secret! Many schools have even moved their pride events up to May so that no child is freed for summer vacation without being forced to take their...

    KELLOGG –– A student at Kellogg High School isn’t being allowed to participate in his graduation ceremony as a result of comments that were made during a recent assembly. The assembly was a way for senior students to impart words of wisdom to the underclassmen of KHS – the statement that was made by 18-year-old Travis Lohr was one that raised a few eyebrows. “Guys are guys and girls are girls,” Lohr said. “There is no in-between.” After the assembly, Lohr was informed that he wasn’t going to be allowed to walk in KHS’s graduation ceremony this Saturday. Lohr is...

    Temecula’s conservative school board majority has blocked a history textbook because its supporting materials mention slain gay rights leader Harvey Milk. School board President Joseph Komrosky, who opposed the book, called Milk “a pedophile.” In response, the Temecula teachers union staged a rally and plans another, including before the next Temecula Valley school board meeting Tuesday, June 13. Last month, Temecula Valley Unified School District officials brought the adoption of a book called Social Studies Alive to the board and recommended it be approved for students in first through fifth grades for eight years. The textbook would be used starting...

    The Beatles once sang, “All you need is love.” But will Kamala Harris’ professed LOVE for electric school buses – plus the $1 billion in taxpayer subsidies she announced last October – be enough to usher in the new paradise?Hmm. Let’s do the math. The $1 billion in rebates pledged is to help purchase 2,500 electric school buses in some 391 school districts around the nation. But there are in fact about 500,000 school buses transporting children to and from school, to and from ball games and other events, nearly every school day. By simple calculation, this suggests it will...
