    BALTIMORE, Maryland, October 3, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A mother is furious after discovering that her 16-year-old daughter’s headaches and soreness were caused by a birth control implant inserted by a school nurse without her consent. Nicole Lambert was shocked to learn from her daughter’s pediatrician that the pain her daughter was experiencing had been caused by a tiny tube containing the contraceptive  “Nexplanon,” which had been improperly inserted in her daughter’s upper arm.Not only did the doctor recommend that the tube be removed to alleviate the child’s discomfort, but he further warned that the contraceptive could cause far worse side-effects, such...

    But next, we note that it's not just America's colleges and universities. As I said in the beginning, there is a pass down, a filter down process throughout the rest of the culture and of course that means high schools and even middle schools and elementary schools as well. As a matter of fact these days, many of the same ideas and intellectual agendas show up in pre-school. But now I want to turn to an article by John Murawski entitled, “Woke History Is Making Big Inroads in America's High Schools.” He writes, "Like growing numbers of public high school...

    At highly rated Maspeth High School in Queens, students know they can play hooky, skip course work, flunk tests — and still pass. They call it the “Maspeth Minimum,” meaning everyone gets at least the minimum grade or score needed to pass or graduate, no matter what.

    High school cheerleaders on probation for posing with pro-Trump banner A high school cheerleading squad in North Carolina was put on probation Monday for posing with a pro-President Trump banner at a football game. Members of the North Stanly High School squad posed for photos with the “Trump 2020: Make America Great Again” flag at an Aug. 30 game on “American Night” — in which students were encouraged to dress patriotically, the Stanly News & Press reported. One photo — depicting seven girls in red, white and blue cheer uniforms and two boys in red “MAGA” caps with the banner...

    Flint, Mich. A Southwestern High School teacher says her car was stolen from the school parking lot by a student and is accusing the school district and police of not doing anything. Special Education teacher Mary Toth spoke exclusively to Fox 66/NBC 25 News. Toth says on August 13th the student was supposed to be helping her clean her classroom. She says she left her purse in the classroom when she stepped out. She says when she returned, she later discovered that money and keys were stolen from her purse. She says the student then stole her 2015 Chevy Malibu...

    A high school in North Carolina is under fire for an assignment entitled "Diversity Inventory" that left students crying and parents outraged. Heritage High School English teacher Melissa Wilson gave out an assignment to her class last week that asked them to categorize themselves, their parents, their doctor, friends, and more by race, class, sexuality, and religion, among other things. (Photo credit NC Values Coalition) Students reported that Wilson made them go stand by a sign on the wall that correlated with their sexuality. One student called a parent during the exercise to express her discomfort with it. Another...

    As the 2019-2020 school year begins this fall, millions of high schoolers and college students will be heading into an academic rife with politicization and heated classroom discussions. But, how do students truly feel about issues such as socialism, free speech, health care, and illegal immigration? Do these kids aged 13-22, known as Gen Z, feel comfortable sharing their true opinions? Do they even know the basic concepts of what they are discussing? To find out, Young America's Foundation, "the nation’s premier organization for inspiring students on high school and college campuses with conservative ideas," teamed up with Echelon Insights...
  • NJ High School Allows Muslim Proselytizing in Class

    Memorial High School in New Jersey has come under fire after it allowed two Muslim students to proselytize for their religion in multiple classrooms and allowed banners invoking the Muslim god Allah and urging students to celebrate Ramadan to be hung on school grounds. According to the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF), an organization that does pro-bono legal work to defend conscience rights and constitutional liberties, Memorial High hung “two district-sponsored Ramadan posters” on school grounds. One of these posters exhorted students to “Have a blessed Ramadan” and added “May Allah Continue to Shower [sic] You Love and Wisdom”...

    Imagine asking the principal of your child’s high school about the education the students receive about the Holocaust only to be told that he couldn’t say the Holocaust is “a factual, historical event”. It took five days for a mom in Florida to receive that email response. In April 2018 a mother who wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons simply wanted to check that education about the Holocaust is a top priority for teachers at Spanish River Community High School in Palm Beach County, Florida. The principal, William Latson, provided a stunning answer. He said that the students...

    The ‘Florida man’ stories are hilarious. There’s even a special account on Twitter dedicated to this sort of news, the ever-growing list of local stories from those residents of the Sunshine State who engage in some of the most outlandish antics out there. It’s true entertainment, one that should make anyone laugh. Yet, this one ‘Florida man’ story isn’t so funny. A high school principal at Spanish River High School in the Palm Beach School District decided a year ago to take the odd position of refusing to declare the Holocaust a factual and historical event. William Latson is the...

    The hazing antics of two New York City high school students during a school trip stop at a New Jersey motel last year that included branding a fellow student’s buttocks have landed them a two year prison sentence, officials said. The students, whose names were not released because of their age, pleaded guilty earlier this month to two counts of aggravated assault, aggravated hazing and three counts of hazing, the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office announced Friday. The Queens-based Francis Lewis High School students will serve their time at the New Jersey Training School in Monroe Township, prosecutors said. “We believe...

    A graduation trip to the Dominican Republic for a group of Oklahoma teens took a turn earlier this month when part of the group became mysteriously ill during their stay in the Caribbean nation, where at least nine Americans have died while vacationing. About 40 seniors, who just graduated from Deer Creek High School in Edmond, traveled to the Dominican Republic on June 8 to stay at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana, a parent told KOTV. The all-inclusive resort is the same location where two Americans have died and others have gotten sick. The group ate...

    NORTH VERSAILLES, Penn. -- Starr DeJesus admits she learned a lot about both the generosity of the American people and her own potential from an immigrant who spoke to her civics class. "I didn't know it was just an America thing to tip servers," the high school senior and part-time Denny's server said. "We rarely emphasize the good things about our culture. The only things you ever hear about on social media are complaints or criticisms." DeJesus said she also didn't consider how much it is within her own power to earn more money. "You gotta push," she said. "Some...

    I’ve always said Washington, DC, is nothing but high school with paychecks – big paychecks covered by our money – but this has never been more on display than it was this week. Democrats pulled the equivalent of a “meet me at the monkey bars after school” move this week when they followed Nancy Pelosi’s lead after she accused the President of the United States of engaging in a “cover up.” The only thing missing from the allegation was any mention of what exactly was being covered up. But we’re in a post-fact world so what it is the President...

    A high school in Littlestown, Pa., has apologized after the yearbook club blurred out two teenagers' pro-Trump apparel in a yearbook photo. "The mistake was not noticed during the editorial preview process prior to print. We apologize on behalf of the yearbook club. It is not the policy or practice of the district to improperly censor speech," Littlestown High School said in a statement to local Fox News affiliate WPMT. The apology comes after 16-year-old Jeremy Gebhart said he and his friend had their "Make America Great Again" hats blurred out of a yearbook photo taken during the school's spirit...

    When Democrats in the House aren’t using their majority status to ceaselessly pester and harass POTUS Donald Trump, which is often, they are spending their political capital on activism rather than legislation that would advance the success and status of our constitutional republic. That was in evidence again last week as the House passed (with eight Republicans) a bill that will, if it becomes law, destroy female sporting events in high school. First, a little background. In the early 1970s, Congress passed a series of Educational Amendments that included a section called Title IX. According to Feminist.org (yeah, I know,...

    Last Sunday’s London Marathon produced plenty of positive headlines. Eliud Kipchoge ran a new course record, Emily Sisson had an incredible marathon debut, runners set nearly 40 new Guinness World Records, and the event itself had more finishers than ever before (42,549) and passed the Ł1 billion mark in cumulative fundraising. But it was not all celebration for some runners, especially those who finished at the back of the pack. In the first year the race has offered an official 7:30 pacer—which should have made the race more inclusive—runners who finished toward the end reported experiencing some disturbing conditions. In...

    A Texas high school sprinter set an incredible mark at a 100-meter event Saturday. Matthew Boling, of Strake Jesuit College Prep in Houston, set a 9.98 mark at the Region III-6A track and field event. The 18-year-old posted a video of his sprint on Twitter and said “New PR and 100m high school record all conditions, 9.98.” Other social media users immediately dubbed him “White Lightning.” Boling’s mark was the fastest time by an American under 20 years old, according to Yahoo Australia. However, the mark wouldn’t be considered a national record because he received a 4.2 mph tailwind. Boling...

    Two male students at Lacey Township High School in New Jersey posted photos of guns on Snapchat. One of the boys captioned his photo with "hot stuff" and "if there's ever a zombie apocalypse, you know where to go." The photos were not taken at school. They were not taken during school hours. They did not reference a school. They auto-deleted after 24 hours, which was well before the school became aware of them. And yet, administrators at Lacey Township High School suspended the boys for three days, and also gave them weekend detention. This was a clear violation of...
