NoHo school budget cuts due to high white student percentage sparks outrage
Post Date: 2017-03-27 19:51:06 by cranky
Outrage has grown at Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, as the school faces layoffs and increased class sizes due to a law limiting funds for schools with a higher white student body. The Los Angeles Unified School District provides more funding for schools where the white population is below 30 percent. In a letter to parents, the district noted the highly regarded middle school had been above the percentage for the past couple years. The racial formula was a condition imposed by court decisions dealing with desegregation in the 1970s. Parents, however, remain frustrated with what the cuts might mean for their children. "When your class sizes are getting larger and ...
Most Utah young adults ill-prepared for workforce, ineligible for military
Post Date: 2017-02-25 05:46:35 by Willie Green
SALT LAKE CITY An overwhelming majority of Utah's young adults ages 17-24 are ineligible for military service because they are overweight, have a criminal history or can't pass the test, according to a new report. The Council for America hosted a panel discussion Tuesday at the state Capitol to detail why so many young adults in the state are not "citizen ready," or readily equipped to take on the challenges of adult life. A citizen readiness index shows Utah is among the more than three-fourths of states in the country that earned a C grade or worse based on the number of young adults who missed the mark. "The ambivalence we sometimes see out there needs to ...
The 20 ‘Worst’ Public Schools in America
Post Date: 2017-02-23 09:30:28 by sneakypete
We often hear data about how American students are performing in science, math, or reading. For instance, in 2015, the United States ranked 24th in reading, 25th in science, and 40th in math according to data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Hearing education statistics like these, coupled with bullying statistics and other concerns, its no wonder many parents want to study a school inside and out before agreeing to send their child there. School choice is a decision that can have a profound impact on a childs life. Most parents simply want to find a safe and comfortable place where their children can develop strong scholastic abilities and ...
Wisconsin students demand free tuition for black students
Post Date: 2017-02-16 14:28:16 by misterwhite
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Black students should be offered free tuition and housing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison because blacks were legally barred from education during slavery and UW-Madison remains out of reach for black students today, the student government said Wednesday. The Associated Students of Madison said in a resolution that students from suburban high schools are overrepresented and that the consideration of ACT and SAT scores in applications restricts opportunities for the poor and thus upholds "white supremacy." Race relations have been a contentious issue at the Wisconsin's flagship campus for months and the university has proposed some measures aimed ...

(AP) -- A Maryland high school teacher has been disciplined after encouraging students to "have fun" writing a slave song for an assignment as part of a lesson on abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

Federalist: Democrat Michelle Rhee as Education Secretary ‘Would Be a Terrible Choice’
Post Date: 2016-11-19 07:59:58 by cranky
President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly meeting Friday with Democrat Michelle Rhee, the former Washington, D.C., schools chancellor and potential candidate for the post of U.S. secretary of education.Andrew Ujifusa, writing at Education Week, reported the slated meeting Friday. Trumps search for education secretary appears to be crossing party lines, writes Ujifusa. Rhee, who has identified as a Democrat throughout her career, is a strong supporter of school choice (including vouchers), which appears to be the top K-12 priority for Trump. Rhee, however, who was D.C. schools chancellor from 2007 to 2010, is a Common Core supporter, a fact that does not mesh ...

San Francisco State To Launch Afro-Themed Dorm Floors
Post Date: 2016-09-20 10:04:44 by misterwhite
SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) New student housing designed for African-American students and culture is coming to San Francisco State University. African-American students make up just under 6 percent of the campus population and its unclear how many dorm rooms will be dedicated to African-American culture. University officials says the plans are in the very early stages. Last spring a cellphone video captured a racially-charged encounter at the SF State campus. In the video, an African-American woman is upset and gets physical with a white man about his dreadlocks.

Melania Trump didn't graduate from college as bio claims, reports say
Post Date: 2016-07-19 16:24:08 by Willie Green
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The controversy over Melania Trump's speech at the Republican National Convention has sparked questions about her background. Mrs. Trump's education, in particular, is at issue. Her bio on her official website states she graduated with a degree in design and architecture from "University in Slovenia." It's a claim that's been repeated by the Trump campaign and the RNC itself, in the convention's official program. However, the Slovenian writers of her biography wrote that Trump actually dropped out from the University of Ljubljana after her freshman year. Politico's Julia Ioffe wrote the same thing in a profile of the ...

Oklahoma schools have no money for textbooks
Post Date: 2016-06-08 14:25:16 by Willie Green
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) - The Oklahoma State Department of Education recommended that schools not buy any textbooks because of lack of state funding. The department said lawmakers failed to appropriate funding for textbooks during the fiscal year beginning July 1st. State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister spoke out saying students will be forced to use "outdated and tattered school books held together by duct tape." The 13-member state textbook committee is expected to consider the recommendation of delaying textbook selection by a year at a special meeting later this month. Last fiscal year, $33 million was allocated for textbooks. Poster Comment:

Misperceiving Bullshit as Profound Is Associated with Favorable Views of Cruz, Rubio, Trump and Conservatism
Post Date: 2016-05-05 09:39:55 by Willie Green
AbstractThe present research investigates the associations between holding favorable views of potential Democratic or Republican candidates for the US presidency 2016 and seeing profoundness in bullshit statements.

Michigans Board of Education has drafted a set of guidelines that asks schools to allow students to make their own decisions regarding which bathrooms they use, the gender by which they want to be identified, and the names by which theyd like to be called.

The Daily Caller reports that the board quietly issued the statement and corresponding guidance on February 23 without a press release. The public has only until April 11 to comment on the guidance before the board finalizes it on May 10. The statement ...
