    NEW YORK, February 4, 2013, ( – New York City schools distributed 12,721 doses of the “Morning-After Pill” to students last year, according to documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. The 40 school-based “health centers” also performed thousands of injections of long-term contraception and implanted intrauterine devices (IUDs). Under state law, schools do not need to obtain parental consent to dispense the drugs. The $2.7 million program has provided contraceptives to 22,400 teens as young as 14. Last September, the district announced that the city Department of Health had distributed Plan B to 567 teenage girls, and...

    Most of a new health studies curriculum currently on the table inside the Helena, Montana, school district is a virtual nonissue going into the 2010 school year. But the sex education component dominating the news in the past week or so is still as contentious as ever, inspiring parents from all across the Big Sky capital to descend on the school board in a collective voice of strong opposition. While those in support of the curriculum are arguing its value in light of society’s judgment that k-12 students are learning about sex from all the wrong sources—such as their peers...

    Should "George" be allowed to play alongside "Cindy" and "Cathy" on a girls basketball team and then later accompany them into the privacy of a locker room or shower facility that formerly was "biology-based"? That's the question that will be addressed Monday when the Maine Human Rights Commission meets to talk about "transgendered" students. Guidelines have been proposed that would specify what commission officials believe all schools must do to make accommodations for any biological boy who asserts he's female, or biological girl who asserts she's male. Under discussion will be the suggested guideline: Transgender students must be allowed access...

    It's not just the high-profile cases, like the ex-model held for seducing a boy of 14. New research suggests 10 per cent of American pupils are victims of sexual abuse Research claiming that one in 10 American children has been sexually exploited at school - and that almost half the abusers are women - has shocked parents as one of the nation's most notorious pupil abusers is about to be released from prison. More than 4.5 million school-age children have been subjected to some form of sexual behaviour from teachers or other adults meant to be looking after them, said...

    SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- As Scarsdale High School is set to graduate another senior class Friday, the actions of a few freshman students are grabbing all of the attention. And it's not the positive kind: male students coaxing two female students to have sex with each other, capturing it on videotape, and e-mailing it throughout the school. "It's very upsetting that this is what our students and children have been doing," said one Scarsdale resident. Officials who have seen the tape tell NewsChannel 4 the two 14-year-old girls appear intoxicated. One of them is seen trying to convince the other to...

    Silencing whom? - Thomas Sowell (archive) June 18, 2004 With all the noise being made -- from traffic noise to Al Gore's ranting -- you might never suspect that there was a National Day of Silence. What you might also not suspect is that this day is observed in schools and colleges across the country, where students agree to remain silent for a day in order to show support for homosexuals. The idea is that people who are sexually different have been silenced by society and that the students who observe the National Day of Silence are showing that they...

    COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- When Covington schools Superintendent Jack Moreland saw an advertisement for a Chippendales show, he thought it would be a good morale booster for his female employees. So he shelled out $420 to send 20 female staff members to a Chippendales show to see buff men strip off most of their clothing. It worked, but it also raised the ire of at least one person, who wrote an anonymous letter to the state Office of Education Accountability accusing Moreland of using school-district funds to pay for the strip show. Moreland said he spent $420 of his own...

    ROSLYN, N.Y. (AP) _ This is an unlikely setting for a crisis in the public schools. Roslyn High sends 95 percent of its graduates to college, its SAT scores are among the best in the nation, and it was cited in a recent Wall Street Journal story on the some of country's finest public schools. Foreign language is offered to youngsters beginning in kindergarten. For more than two decades, voters in this well-to-do Long Island community less than 20 miles from Manhattan have faithfully supported a generous school budget, funding whatever programs administrators thought necessary to keep the district's 3,000...

    CBN News ^ | 1/8/04 | By Paul Strand – WASHINGTON -- Homosexuals have won so many battles in legislatures, courts and the media, they can almost taste total victory just ahead. Gay rights lobbyist Toni Broaddus said, "We stand at this turning point in history. It's truly a historical moment." Ben Bull, legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, a traditional values advocacy group, agrees. Bull said, "The homosexual agenda is making major gains, just in the last 10 or 15 years." Atlanta pastor D.L. Foster is an ex-homosexual. He said of homosexuals, "They have a plan. They are executing that plan with precision, and they are...

    U.S. Supreme Court rewrites Constitution and 3,000 years of history WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court today rewrote the U.S. Constitution and 3,000 years of legal history by striking down the Texas sodomy law in a 6-3 decision. The court overrode the Constitution, the history of American law, and its own precedent by declaring in Lawrence v. Texas that there is a right to privacy to protect private, adult consensual sexual activity. Justice Kennedy wrote for the majority, and only Justices Scalia and Thomas and Chief Justice Rhenquist dissented. The majority reasoned, unbelievably, that because of the trend in state...

    Remember the bell curve? Well, here comes its even more terrifying successor--the bow tie. Some years ago a Forbes columnist was compiling a chart for an article on education. The statistical relationship he uncovered in his research was so remarkable that it became an article in itself--or what the columnist called "a charticle." That is a chart that makes such a strong point that it requires very few words of additional explanation. Charticles duly became a regular feature in Forbes and later on CBS Marketwatch. In this case the charticle consisted of two lines. One line, beginning at the lower...
