Post Date: 2015-09-30 23:55:51 by Hondo68
Two groups out of Hancock County in Indiana are utilizing marijuana goggles as a new method to warn teens about the effects of marijuana. Neighborhoods Against Substance Abuse (NASA) allowed the Hancock County Youth Council, an anti-drug organization comprised of teens from several area high schools, to use the goggles first before introducing them at a community event scheduled for this weekend.Tim Retherford of NASA said “Anytime you can do an activity — something that’s interactive with them, or something that provides education, that’s great. These actually simulate the loss of some of your cognitive functions.”According to WNCN’s report, the teens are seen ...

7th Graders in Tennessee Made to Recite ‘Allah Is the Only God’ in Public School
Post Date: 2015-09-10 09:37:17 by cranky
Middle school parents in Tennessee are up in arms on learning that their children were instructed to recite and write, “Allah is the only god,” as part of a world history project. In the Maury County School District, students were assigned a Five Pillars of Islam project that included the translation of the pillar of “Shahada” as being, “There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is his prophet.” Joy Ellis, the mother of a seventh-grader at Spring Hill Middle School, said that Christian children should not be instructed to write the Shahada. “This is a seventh grade state standard, and will be on the TCAP,” Ellis said. “I didn’t have a problem with ...

Professors threaten bad grades for saying ‘illegal alien,’ ‘male,’ ‘female’
Post Date: 2015-08-31 09:37:08 by cranky
Washington State students risk a failing grade in one course if they use any common descriptors professor considers “oppressive and hateful language.”In another class, students will lose one point every time they use the words “illegal alien” or “illegals” rather than the preferred terms of “‘undocumented’ migrants/immigrants/persons.”The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.” Breikss is not the only WSU faculty member ...

The Eight Stages of Voting
Post Date: 2015-08-22 21:19:01 by Hondo68
The following was contributed by bitjuggler on the forum:I’m thinking that there are probably some common stages that most people go through with respect to voting (akin to the Kübler-Ross model of grief) – and that individuals have to recognize them before they can address the underlying personal problem of why they put any credence in the voting process.You believe in the story you’ve been fed about the system; you enthusiastically research the candidates’ positions; you discuss and debate those positions with friends and relatives; then you vote for whom you decide is the best candidate to fill the position. You see that government is “not working” and ...

Texas Public School Posts Made Up Quotes from Reagan, Bible, George Washington to Promote Christianity
Post Date: 2015-08-05 13:17:53 by Willie Green
Did you have any idea that our first President believed that government required God and the Bible in order to function? And are you familiar with the following quote from President Ronald Reagan? “Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.”  Chances are you haven’t heard of either of these – because they’re both fiction. George Washington is better categorized as a Deist (rather than a traditional Christian), and Reagan never made such a statement about the Bible. It’s part of a strange indoctrination strategy at a small school district in eastern Texas. On the walls of the school hallways and classrooms are many such ...

Officials: Students’ Gender Identity Determines Restroom Use (DOJ - statement of interest)
Post Date: 2015-07-02 10:52:23 by Hondo68
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) -- The U.S. Justice Department says in a court filing that transgender students must be allowed to use the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity.The department says in a statement of interest filed Monday that failure to do so amounts to sex discrimination under Title IX of the U.S. Education Amendments of 1972. The document is in response to a federal lawsuit filed against the Gloucester County School Board by a 16-year-old transgender student who wants to be allowed to use the boys' restroom.The lawsuit says Gavin Grimm used the communal restrooms without incident until the board adopted a policy in December requiring transgender students to use ...

Colorado Court Rules Use of Public Funds for Private Schools Is Unconstitutional
Post Date: 2015-06-30 10:25:16 by Willie Green
DENVER — Colorado’s highest court on Monday struck down a voucher program that allowed parents in a conservative suburban school district to use taxpayer dollars to send their children to private schools.The split decision to throw out the voucher program in Douglas County, Colorado’s third-largest school district, was a blow to conservative education advocates and those who want to redefine public education to funnel tax dollars directly to families who then choose the type of schooling they want for their children.The state’s Supreme Court ruled against the district’s voucher program, which was passed in 2011, saying it violated a plank of the State Constitution ...

Confederate Symbols, Heritage Not Hate
Post Date: 2015-06-25 11:20:36 by Gatlin
Confederate Symbols, Heritage Not Hate, Symbol of Southern Culture, Heritage and Sovereignty In this era of political correctness symbols of the Confederacy have come under increasing attack by the media and many special interest groups. Monuments, flags and even the names of men who served have been subjected to barrages of contempt and protest by people who find them to be personally offensive. Of course the main target of their consternation is the battle flag which is also known as the St. Andrew's Cross. What many people do not know is that this flag was never the national flag of the Confederacy. It was not even the only battle flag used by the Confederate armies but that ...

LGBT Studies Course At San Francisco High School May Be 1st In Nation
Post Date: 2015-06-23 13:16:10 by cranky
A San Francisco high school may be the first in the country to offer an LGBT studies course. The course will cover terminology, and the broad history of LGBT issues. “We’ll look at what it’s been like for gay men, what it’s been like for lesbian women, what it’s been like for transgender people,” Ruth Asawa High School Social Studies teacher Lyndsey Schlax said. Schlax has been working with human rights activist Cleve Jones, who was mentored by San Francisco’s Harvey Milk. The curriculum stretches back to ancient times. “Twenty eight percent of our students identify as LGBTQ,” Schlax said. The class begins this fall.

Selfie With Parents’ Sex Toys? Alameda Teacher Accused Of Assigning Bizarre Extra Credit For Sophomores
Post Date: 2015-06-04 12:42:55 by cranky
video Parents of students at Encinal High School in Alameda want a teacher fired after they say he sent them home with an extra credit assignment of finding sex toys and condoms in their parents’ private drawers, and taking a selfie with what they find. Mothers Kimberly Cobene and Evangeline Garcia heard about the sex toy selfie last month from a counselor at an afterschool program their sophomore daughters attend. “It was to go into your parents’ private drawers or whatever to seek out sexual toys or condoms, or anything of that nature and to take a selfie with it,” Cobene said. Encinal High administrators implied to the moms that the assignment may have been a ...

Teachers complain, chaos reigns as St. Paul schools spend millions on ‘white privilege’ training
Post Date: 2015-06-02 15:24:20 by cranky
Have the taxpayers of St. Paul spent nearly $3 million over the past five years to bring chaos and danger to their schools and students? Apparently so. In 2010, the St. Paul school district began a contractual relationship with the Pacific Educational Group, a San Francisco-based organization that tries to help public schools deal with achievement and disciplinary issues involving black students. PEG packages and sells the concept of victimization, for a very high price. It claims that the American education system is built around white culture, tradition and social norms – aka “white privilege” – to the unfair detriment of black students. PEG believes that black ...

‘Breathtaking in its stupidity': Wisconsin GOP bill would allow high school dropouts to teach high school
Post Date: 2015-05-28 18:13:22 by Willie Green
Republicans lawmakers in Wisconsin have proposed a rule change that would allow high school dropouts to be licensed to teach in public schools, which critics have slammed as “breathtaking in its stupidity.” The Journal Sentinel reported that the measure proposed by Republican state Rep. Mary Czaja was slipped into a 1:30 a.m. Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee vote last week with other K-12 budget items. According to a statement from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, the new rule would require DPI to “license anyone with a bachelor’s degree in any subject to teach English, social studies, mathematics, and science.” And DPI would be required ...

Duke rebuke: Professor defiant after school condemns racially charged remarks
Post Date: 2015-05-19 09:45:51 by misterwhite
A Duke University professor was defiant after the school last week condemned his "noxious" and "offensive" words in a letter published in The New York Times in which he compared African-Americans unfavorably to Asian-Americans. The school's rebuke came after a student backlash against Political Science Professor Jerry Hough, 80, whose May 9 letter sought to address racism and the Baltimore riots. Hough said African-Americans don't try to integrate into society, while Asians “worked doubly hard” to overcome racism instead of blaming it. “Every Asian student has a very simple old American first name that symbolizes their desire for ...

RUSA passes bill to diversify Scarlet Knight mascot
Post Date: 2015-05-09 09:35:02 by Willie Green
The Rutgers University Student Assembly recently passed a bill intended to support ethnic and gender diversity by adding multiple Scarlet Knights that could be black, Latino, Asian, female or third gender in addition to the existing Caucasian Scarlet Knight. Since the initial adoption of the Scarlet Knight mascot in 1955 and its several transformations in the succeeding decades, the mascot has stormed fields, courts and countless parades sporting largely Caucasian features. A recent student government bill is looking to diversify the Scarlet Knight by adding a couple of mascot friends, but questions linger in the air about student, staff and alumni responses.The Rutgers University Student ...

Corinthian Colleges Shuts Down, Ending Classes for 16,000 Overnight

Government Schooling in a Nutshell
Post Date: 2015-04-25 11:40:07 by Deckard
See this truth-telling note, from a teacher to a mother, about why he was putting her son in detention. Need to know more about public-ed? (Thanks to  Thomas A.A. Olson.) UPDATE from Thomas: Lew: There are actually two sickening aspects to this – the obvious one of a teacher who is clearly Wrong in Fact but insists on playing the “authority” card, and the sad fact that every student in his class, save the one facing detention, just blindly sucked in the wrong data without inquiry. Shutting down government schools needs to be top priority

BYU students speak out against Honor Code policies to national accreditation board
Post Date: 2015-04-16 07:34:33 by Willie Green
(KUTV) Getting a top-notch education doesn't make up for living in a "toxic environment," according to some students at Brigham Young University. More than 120 students met to share that concern and other feedback with a national accreditation board who is visiting BYU for two days. Every seven years every university's accreditation is re-evaluated. BYU is up for re-accreditation, so six board members from Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) had a meeting with students to get the the most authentic feedback possible about the university -- without the administration present. "We aren't going to identify any individual (to BYU ...

Judge in Atlanta schools cheating case keeps word on punishing those who won't admit guilt
Post Date: 2015-04-15 08:48:52 by cranky
A judge kept his word, showing mercy to former Atlanta public school educators who accepted responsibility for their role in a widespread conspiracy to inflate student scores on standardized tests and coming down harshly on those who didn't. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter had delayed sentencing by a day and encouraged the 10 former educators to negotiate deals with prosecutors. Those who did that were rewarded Tuesday: Baxter gave a former teacher a 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew at home for one year and a former testing coordinator six months of weekends spent in jail. They'll also serve five years on probation. The other eight weren't so lucky: Baxter gave them ...
