  • Nevada wants to have unlimited number of parents on birth certificates

    04/28/2021 9:22:11 AM PDT · by TedMartin · 48 replies ^ | 4/28/21 | Staff Report
    A bill in the Nevada state legislature would strike the term mother and father on birth certificates and authorize an unlimited number of adults to be listed. “We need to contact the Senate Judiciary Members and urge them to oppose AB 115,” the Nevada Family Alliance, a program of Capitol Resource Institute,” said in a statement. “The passing of this bill could bring complicated and dangerous implications for parents across Nevada.” The bill was heard this week in the Senate Judiciary Committee. It already passed in the Assembly, where it was sponsored by Assemblywoman Cecelia González (see image), a Democrat....

    The vast majority of K-12 parents support in-person learning despite looming concerns from public health officials over the Chinese coronavirus, a Gallup survey released Thursday found. The survey, taken February 14-21 among 860 parents of school-age children, found nearly 8 in 10 support sending children back to brick and mortar schools, most of which shut down last year due to the pandemic.
  • The Foxes’ Bureaucratic Capture of the Henhouse

    Independent Institute Beacon ^ | March 1, 2021 | Craig Eyermann
    What happens when you put the foxes in charge of the henhouse? The answer to that riddle is nothing good, unless you’re one of the foxes. In economics, that question is built into a concept called regulatory capture, which is a bad thing. Here’s a good definition: Regulatory capture is an economic theory that says regulatory agencies may come to be dominated by the industries or interests they are charged with regulating. The result is that an agency, charged with acting in the public interest, instead acts in ways that benefit the industry it is supposed to be regulating. In...

    An overeager dad dressed in a full-on Buddy the Elf costume — from the 2003 Will Ferrell movie — to pick up his daughter after school, and her mortified reaction was priceless. “Oh, my goodness, it’s Alayna!” Gregory Sumsion shouted at his high-schooler while wearing the yellow and green outfit and curly wig. “I know her! I know her!” he continued as he approached his shocked daughter, who exclaimed, “Why am I related to you?!” as her nearby mother captured the whole thing for TikTok. The video has been viewed nearly 6 million times. “I want to sing you a...

    Parler, a social networking app that markets itself as “non-biased, free speech social media focused on protecting user’s rights,” has experienced a spike in popularity in the past two weeks, with roughly one million people downloading the app within a few days of the Nov. 3 election. Users who were upset that large social networks like Facebook and Twitter had taken minor steps to reduce election disinformation propelled Parler to the top of the app download charts on both Google Play and the iOS App Store. As a result, as of November 18, the app is prominently displayed in both...
  • The challenge of academic hostility toward Christianity; Parents ask, “Is it possible for my child who is a Christian to survive college, faith intact?”

    Parents frequently share with me their fears surrounding college and their kids. Parents ask, “Is it possible for a young man or woman who is a Christian to survive college, faith intact?” My answer is, “Yes!” Still, I’m not sure it is the right question. Every month a report comes across my desk with stories of students, some of whom came to college with a faith and many of whom did not. These stories usually have plenty of ups and downs, and they often track with someone who has been through a crisis. What they have in common is their...

    In case you haven’t noticed, racially charged political movements are invading every area of American life. High school football games are no exception. Parents attending a football game at Lakewood High School in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, were outraged when someone took to the public address system before the game to declare that the school would henceforth be an “agent of change” in combatting “systemic” racism in “society as a whole.” “All of the visiting parents were completely caught off guard,” popular Cleveland radio host Bob Frantz, whose son was playing in the game, told PJ Media. “We were standing respectfully...

As of July, approximately 52 percent of young Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 lived with their parents.

    Teachers unions are waging court fights across the country aimed at unwinding what they say are unsafe and politically motivated timetables for reopening schools that risk exposing personnel to the coronavirus pandemic. State officials eager to ramp up brick-and-mortar school buildings are facing lawsuits from Florida to Texas to Iowa over reopening plans as well as access to the COVID-19 infection data needed to monitor the rate of spread within school communities. At the same time, lawsuits are flying from the opposition direction: Parents in several states including New York, Massachusetts and Oregon, dissatisfied with web-based teaching alternatives, are suing...

    Where did this all come from: the vitriol and vice, the anger and hatred, the looting, the riots, the destruction, the nihilistic confusion, the science-denying gender-bending sexuality, the suicidal infatuation with socialism, the adolescent whining for safety rather than freedom? Just look over your son’s or daughter’s shoulder, and you might find the answer. Mr. Kay, who teaches English at... a Philadelphia public school, expressed his concern about the “damage” that “parents” might cause if they overheard the lessons he had prepared for their children. Mr. Kay then described how “conservative parents” are his chief concern when he and his...
  • Parents and Teachers Starting 'Learning Pods' Are Done Waiting for Permission

    Intellectual Takeout ^ | 8/4 | Kerry McDonald
    These learning pods, or in-home microschools, involve small groups of families coming together to take turns facilitating a curriculum for their children in their homes, or pooling resources to hire a teacher or college student to lead instruction. They are a creative, spontaneous response to uncertain or undesirable school reopening plans that make at-home learning easier, more practical, and more enjoyable for more families. These pods are also a prime example of what Adam Thierer calls “permissionless innovation,” where new solutions and discoveries are born without explicit regulatory blessings. In his book, Thierer explains: “The best solutions to complex social...

    President Trump has been advocating for schools to reopen after many students were stuck at home for months amid the coronavirus crisis. And now he's calling for $105 billion of education funding to be included in Congress's next coronavirus-related legislative package."To encourage schools to make in-person classes available this fall, the President is requesting $105 billion in education funding as part of the next coronavirus relief bill—$70 billion of which will directly support K-12 education," a White House release says, noting that about half of that "$70 billion will be reserved for schools that reopen."An outspoken school choice advocate, the president during a Thursday press conference said that if schools do not reopen parents should be able...

    The Federalist ^ | July 18, 2020 | Auguste Meyrat
    By preserving culture and supporting children, the nuclear family consequently becomes the highest and most effective form of empowerment. By now, people are realizing that Black Lives Matter (BLM) is less an organization committed to improving the black community, and more a Marxist group exploiting racial tensions to push its agenda. According to a recent poll, “70 percent of respondents think that the movement has not improved race relations, with 38 percent saying Black Lives Matter has made race relations worse.” After so much agitation and protest, BLM has little to show for itself besides fomenting chaos in urban America...

    High school-educated, working-class parents aren’t capable of overseeing their own child’s education, a state lawmaker said last week. New Hampshire state Sen. Jeanne Dietsch, D-Peterborough, made the comment at a committee hearing last Tuesday while promoting a bill that would stop the state Board of Education from creating a new way of allocating high school graduation credits. “This idea of parental choice, that’s great if the parent is well-educated. There are some families that’s perfect for. But to make it available to everyone? No. I think you’re asking for a huge amount of trouble,” Dietsch said. Dietsch’s remarks represent a...

    With the COVID-19 virus closing schools in China, South Korea, Italy, and the United States, parents are having to make a sudden and unexpected change in their children’s education. Most often, it means shifting education into the home. This learning at home looks different in different places. In Hong Kong, the government ordered 800,000 students to take what the Wall Street Journal calls “a crash course in digital learning.” In New York City, parents are already seeking out homeschooling resources that fit their children and their families in preparation for any school closings. The freedom of parents to choose the...
