    Biden tells teachers that students are ‘like your’ children, not ‘somebody else’s,’ in the classroom‘They’re not somebody else’s children, they’re like yours when you’re in the classroom,’ said Joe Biden. WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – During a Teachers of the Year event at the White House, U.S. President Joe Biden told teachers that their students effectively belong to them and not “somebody” else when they are in their classrooms. “And you’ve heard me say it many times, about our children, but it’s true, they’re all our children,” Biden said in his address to the teachers on Wednesday. “And the reason you’re...

    The high wages of teachers in Boston, where nearly 3,000 are paid six-figure salaries, reflects the strength of their union and suggests that a district plagued by “chronic underperformance” may be more geared toward the adults running it than the children it serves, watchdogs say. A Herald analysis of payroll data found that 2,905 teachers earn more than $100,000 annually, compared to the average per capita income of $44,690 in Boston in 2019, the most recent year for which the U.S. Census Bureau has statistics. Those teachers earned six figures in a city where 18.9% of the population – about...

    It seems like every single day we see a new example of government schools, particularly in Virginia, being run by people who are totally obsessed with exercising their power to force terrible Covid regulations that prevent kids from learning.This latest example is from a teachers' union boss in Fairfax, Virginia who is celebrating higher rates of Covid because it means that they can continue to keep kids masked:Her air quotes aside, she is still celebrating HIGHER Covid rates because it means that the teachers will be able to continue exercising their power to muzzle kids in schools.Most sane people would...
  • School District Cancels Classes As 1,500 Teachers Call in Sick to Protest School Board

    On Thursday, schools in Douglas County, Colorado closed after hundreds of teachers called in sick to protest against several actions carried out by the newly-elected school board, which became majority conservative in November. According to local outlet CPR News, by mid-day Wednesday, there were around 1,500 unfilled teacher absences for the following day. In total, there are about 3,300 licensed teachers in the school district. The district then canceled preschool through high school classes because “the number of absences has impacted our ability to provide a safe and supervised learning environment for students,” according to a tweet posted by the...
  • National School Board Association 'at risk of total collapse'

    We’ve seen this coming for a while now, like a slow-motion train wreck. After the National School Board Association (NSBA) sent a letter to the Biden administration comparing parents to domestic terrorists and even suggesting the PATRIOT Act might be used to reign them in. That turned out to be the last straw for a lot of parents and maybe also for the NSBA. The group apologized for the letter in late October but by that point the damage was done. Within days, five state associations canceled their membership in the national group. By early December the number of associations...
  • Fresh evidence the White House put teachers unions ahead of science on school COVID safety

    “Follow the science,” it said about handling COVID. But for Team Biden, it was follow the teachers unions when it came to reopening schools. Emails between the White House, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — provided to the watchdog group Americans for Public Trust via a Freedom of Information Act request — reveal that the Biden administration not only consulted national teachers unions before releasing school reopening guidance to the public, it put a heavy thumb on the scales in favor of the unions’ agenda.

    The NEA will, with guidance on implementation from the NEA president and chairs of the Ethnic Minority Affairs Caucuses: A. Share and publicize, through existing channels, information already available on critical race theory (CRT) -- what it is and what it is not; have a team of staffers for members who want to learn more and fight back against anti-CRT rhetoric; and share information with other NEA members as well as their community members. B. Provide an already-created, in-depth, study that critiques empire, white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, racism, patriarchy, cisheteropatriarchy, capitalism, ableism, anthropocentrism, and other forms of power and oppression...

    Mark Twain famously said, “In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.” If you ever doubted the wisdom of this observation, the conduct of the Loudoun County School Board, the National School Boards Association, and Attorney General Merrick Garland should put paid to your skepticism. A more patent a collection of idiots it would be hard to find. The heroes in this story are Scott Smith, father of a young girl who had been sexually assaulted in a Loudoun County school bathroom by a “gender fluid” boy wearing a skirt, with an...

    A group of New Jersey teachers is speaking out after being alarmed by a teachers union training that instructs them to log conversations with parents and students about the COVID-19 vaccine into a progressive campaign app used by "Squad" queen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. The National Educators Association (NEA) has been instructing teachers to upload their conversations with pupils and parents into the progressive campaign app Reach, the teachers say.

    On Thursday Mark Levin broadcast a letter with insider information on the teachers union, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and the FBI who met and organized how to combat America’s parents who were speaking out at local school board meetings across the country. The parents were outraged at the COVID masking and vaccination rules, critical race theory indoctrination and open porn disguised as literature promoted in American schools today.Mark Levin called this the biggest scandal of his lifetime on his radio show last night.The letter by America First Legal is fascinating. According to the letter the Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized...

    “The federal government is using its power to silence and intimidate American citizens,” said conservative talk radio host and author Mark Levin, who released a bombshell letter on his program Thursday. “They’re trying to chill free speech.” The letter, from the nonprofit organization America First Legal (AFL) to the United States Inspector General, claims, “In light of the Attorney General’s Memorandum of October 4, 2021, it appears the Department of Justice is committing the full weight of its federal law enforcement resources to prevent parents from exercising constitutionally-protected rights and privileges, for inappropriate partisan purposes.” The AFL says it’s an...

    “[I]f ever there were a structure systemically keeping African-Americans from getting ahead, it would surely be America’s big-city public-school systems,” writes the Wall Street Journal’s William McGurn. Look, for example, at the most recent results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, the nation’s report card. For the past 20 years, achievement has been broken down by school district level in its Trial Urban District Assessment. Of the 27 U.S. urban school districts that reported their results for 2019—from Boston and Chicago to Fort Worth, Texas, and Los Angeles—not a single one can say a majority of the black eighth...

    Schools have become the focal point for culture war fights that animated former President Donald Trump's base and have been advanced by conservative activists and influencers since he left office. Conservative grassroots activists have zeroed in on local education policy with a tea party-esque fervor for months — spanning debates about reopening, how to teach U.S. history and required masking. Now, conservative personalities are urging followers to run for school board seats that have rarely generated much interest, while dozens of activist groups focused on schools have sprouted to advance the fights. The influence of the effort can be seen...

    Corey DeAngelis serves as the national director of research at the American Federation for Children. He’s been tracking the teachers’ union shenanigans on COVID and masks for months. The teachers’ unions want to flex their political muscles and they’re doing it at the expense of children’s educations. They’re sick puppies, always have been. They should all be smashed up, but I’m preaching to the choir here. For over a year, they’re kept kids out of the classroom to take their power trip for a spin. It also gave their members more vacation time. And don’t even think virtual learning worked....

    As I noted a couple of weeks ago, the largest national teachers’ unions—the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers—have essentially declared war on parents and students, doubling down on Critical Race Theory and the “LGBTQ+” agenda while continuing to advocate for forced masking and vaccination of children. In that column, I called on teachers of good will, true allies of students and parents, to abandon the unions and stop paying dues, which is tantamount to supporting their agenda. The battle lines have been drawn. They are either with us or against us. So much for teachers. But...
