    The rising problem of pedophilia within the left is now going to become an even bigger issue in public schools, which is just one more problem the left is trying to thrust on children and parents.According to Fox News, the Biden administration’s Department of Education is wishing to halt attempts to collect more data on sexual assault on students by teachers by rolling back a Trump-era program meant to keep track of these things:The Department of Education is proposing to roll back attempts at collecting additional data on teacher-perpetrated sexual assaults, prompting concerns about transparency in reporting faculty misconduct.Data collection,...

    LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Another Kansas school district is extending its Thanksgiving break to a full week to give overwhelmed staff a reprieve. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the school board approved a plan Friday to turn Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 — a Monday and a Tuesday — into wellness and self-care days. Staff already had the rest of the week off. Superintendent Anthony Lewis told the board during the meeting that the time off was needed because faculty and staff were at a breaking point from the stress and other difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic...
  • Parents Go After Union Stranglehold on School Boards

    Parents who never imagined running for office battled to win seats on local school boards last week; they won some, but lost many. Their fiercest opponents were the teachers unions. The media portrayed these school board races as culture wars, but more than anything they were struggles by parents to wrest control of the boards from self-serving unions. For decades, the unions have maintained a tight grip on who gets elected. No wonder school district decisions -- about budgets, masking, COVID closures, curriculum and teacher contracts -- protect teachers first. Never mind what's best for kids. That needs to change....

    A Michigan township said schools would be closed on Monday after several staff members had a "negative reaction" to the COVID-19 booster shot. Saginaw Township Community Schools posted an announcement on the homepage of its website , noting that, due to being understaffed, schools in its district would be closed on Monday, affecting after-school programs and child care. "A large number of our staff had a negative reaction to the COVID booster shot given at a voluntary clinic over the weekend," the notice said. "There is a substitute teacher/staff shortage throughout the state, further complicating the availability to cover those...

She denied ever striking the student, The Florida Times-Union reported, citing the arrest report. The paper described troubling allegations from a student.

    HBO star said 'what's going on in the schools' was going to be 'the issue' in future elections... Bill Maher sounded the alarm Friday night about next week's Virginia gubernatorial election, which could go to Republicans for the first time since 2009. Maher began the show's panel discussion by pointing out that Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe "should walk away with it" since resident Biden won Virginia by 10 points and McAuliffe previously served as the commonwealth's governor, 2014-2018. Instead, Maher noted, the race is "neck and neck," with GOP challenger Glenn Youngkin over an issue that Maher reminded viewers he...

    WASHINGTON (TND) — An investigation into a Kentucky high school homecoming event is reportedly underway over possible sexual misconduct from students and teachers. Pictures surfaced online of young male students dancing in “lingerie,” students being paddled and even one showing one of the boys dressed in lingerie dancing on the school principal's lap – who is also coincidentally the town’s mayor, according to WKYT Kentucky. The strange clothing choices were reportedly part of a costume contest that appeared to take place in the school’s gymnasium. (Pictures at Source)

    Smearing parents fed up with their kids’ schools as “domestic terrorists” seems to be a wild, incendiary charge with little basis in reality. Yet it’s the basis on which the U.S. attorney general has convened an FBI task force to surveil and intimidate parents who object to what their children are being taught, and how they are being treated, with public tax dollars. The organization that colluded with the Justice Department to create the pretext for chilling voters’ speech has backed down, but the FBI threat remains. School lockdowns have clarified and accelerated the deep, irreconcilable differences among American parents...

    Scott Smith's daughter was sexually assaulted at Stone Bridge High School in Loudoun County, Virginia, on May 28 . She reported it to the school's woke leadership, but her dad was arrested at the school that day for causing a scene when he arrived. It took another two months for police to bring charges against the boy . On June 22, Smith was dragged out of a school board meeting in fury after hearing the board claim they'd received no reports of sexual assaults . He revealed earlier this month what had happened to his daughter in an interview with...
  • The Teachers Union's Fumbled Play

    I believe it was Gaylord Nelson, then governor of Wisconsin, who first recognized the right of public employees to collectively bargain, and it was another governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, who decades later under state law virtually eliminated it with wonderful results for teachers, local governments, and pupils. Our reforms in Wisconsin -- known as Act 10 -- changed that by all but eliminating collective bargaining for government employees. This puts the taxpayers and the officials they elect back in charge of their state and local governments, instead of unelected union bureaucrats. Our reforms in Wisconsin -- known as Act...

    When competence is your goal, neither guilt nor victimhood should have a place. Standards and goals must be respected and maintained. When the co-dependency of guilt and victimhood metastasize in your university, you ask of your students something anathema to education – that each day they deepen their awareness of their own victimhood, and that they pay ever more tuition to the army of mental health administrators and woke professors who fatten off of their misery. Seek to produce competent students, and you honor your commitment to higher education; seek to produce innocent victims, and you transform your university into...

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.

The media tried to spin it as the crowd chanting “Let’s go, Brandon” — the name of the driver, Brandon Brown, who won the NASCAR Xfinity Series race in Talladega. Americans then mocked the media, making “Let’s go Brandon” trend on Twitter, and even Brown himself made reference to the chant.</p>

    The city Department of Education is looking to plug nearly 3,700 openings for substitute teachers as the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for public school staffers goes into effect Monday, The Post has learned. The 3,659 vacancies amount to an average of about two subs per each of the system’s roughly 1,800 schools — though the needs at some schools, including in Brooklyn and Queens, are far greater, according to an email sent Saturday and obtained by The Post. The starting dates for the fill-in gigs range from Monday to May 2022, though the bulk of the roles begin in October, according...

    The tension between parents and American school-board members has worsened since we first reported that members of the boards were quitting en masse over “toxic” parents opposing masks, vaccine mandates and CRT. And according to the National School Boards Association, an organization that represents school board members, the risks of violence breaking out involving a parent and a school-board member have intensified to such a degree that the organization is asking the federal government to start providing security to board members and teachers to protect them from “terrorist” parents. Terrorists?The organization made its demands in a letter to President Biden,...
