Mom files lawsuit after being reported to law enforcement for questioning “polysexual” school poster
Post Date: 2023-03-21 19:01:43 by Charles_Byrd
A mother of two in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit over an alleged smear campaign spearheaded by a military officer after she made a post on Facebook opposing a “polysexual” poster at her seven-year-old daughter's school. The lawsuit, which the Thomas More Society filed on behalf of Angela Reading, alleges that North Hanover Township's police chief together with military personnel at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst demanded the removal of her Facebook post, portrayed her as a “security threat” and reported her to several law enforcement agencies in an attempt to silence her.

Academia’s Feminocracy Is Real — and It’s Killing Education and Freedom
Post Date: 2023-03-07 19:04:25 by Charles_Byrd
“The future is female,” the feminist rallying cry goes. If this is true, the future is “now” in academia, and if academia is any indication, the future is also something else: bleak. This conclusion could be drawn from a recent article, “In Loco Masculi,” by Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald. In it she reports on a most ironic development: While the university system was created by men and for men, its feminization is now “all but complete.” The problem is that, far from the “gentler” sex’s dominance creating a kinder, gentler, college experience, research shows that female faculty are fostering academic tyranny.

Junior ROTC Shouldn't Exist
Post Date: 2023-03-07 18:45:13 by Charles_Byrd
I entered the Air Force through ROTC and served for 20 years, retiring as a lieutenant colonel. I also taught for 15 years at both military and civilian colleges. As a retired military officer and as an educator, perhaps I have some standing on the issue of Junior ROTC in our nation’s high schools. Click for Full Text!

In Georgia, the Forsyth County school system has agreed to pay the legal fees of a group of mothers who sued to overturn a system policy that banned them from reading books from school libraries at school board meetings. The settlement came after a federal court issued an injunction against that policy. The group, called Mama Bears, wants the board to remove sexually explicit books from those libraries.

2023 National Right to Life Pro-Life Essay Contest: First place in the Senior Division
Post Date: 2023-03-05 02:06:03 by Charles_Byrd
Do humans truly have rights? According to the United Nations, “Human rights include the right to life and liberty. Freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination.” However, how can we say all humans have rights if we don’t include the most precious of humans: the unborn? The philosophical and religious belief that the fetus is undeniably a person is the basis for my belief that abortion is wrong. Conception is the point where we are created, where life begins and then extends through to our natural death. Click for Full Text!

The dangers of 'one-size-fits-all' education
Post Date: 2023-02-26 01:50:00 by Charles_Byrd
There’s a world of difference in the abilities of elementary school students in the Trotwood-Madison City School District, outside Dayton, Ohio. Some low-performing fifth graders are only capable of reading first- grade picture books with basic words like dog and cat, says Angie Fugate, a district specialist focusing on gifted education. In the same classrooms, the aces read at a sixth-grade level, devouring thick novels that adults also enjoy, including the Harry Potter series. “It's like we have gone back to the days of the one-room schoolhouse,” Fugate says. “The gap is really huge and yet we are supposed to teach them all the same curriculum. It’s a very ...

The classroom fight between civilizational order and post-modern anarchy
Post Date: 2023-02-26 01:37:34 by Charles_Byrd
There is no subject of greater importance—and controversy—today in America than that of education. And nowhere is the clash between civilizational order and post-modern anarchy on greater display than with New College of Florida, a tiny liberal-arts college in Sarasota. The New York Times recently described the reaction of “students, parents, and faculty members” to Governor Ron DeSantis’s reforms of the college in a curious way: “a political assault on their academic freedom.” Click for Full Text!

A very long study of about 1,000 adults born in the ’50s and ’60s looked at how they were raised, and whether that upbringing had an impact on their longevity. The researchers found that folks who’d grown up overprotected were more likely to die before age 80 than, I guess, Free- Range Kids (now Free-Range Geezers). Click for Full Text!

Students who can't stomach losing woke programs to pressure officials to keep them
Post Date: 2023-02-21 02:18:53 by Charles_Byrd
University of Central Florida (UCF) students will rally outside of Friday’s Board of Trustees meeting to demand university officials maintain Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programs in wake of recent calls to defund them by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis. UCF students and allied organizations will rally outside the Live Oak Center between 8:30 a.m and 10:30 a.m to “demand our Board of Trustees to protect and maintain [DEI] programs, minority scholarships, and opportunities,” according to a flyer advertised by Stay Woke FL, a website with information regarding advocacy against “anti-woke movement.” The rally comes after the DeSantis administration announced ...

Here are the sexually graphic books one state is working to yank from public schools
Post Date: 2023-02-21 02:15:04 by Charles_Byrd
Florida schools have removed more than 100 books that contain pornographic material during the 2022-2023 academic year in order to comply with state law, the Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. A survey of local school districts found that 153 of 175 books were removed the the district for including pornographic, violent or age- inappropriate content, according to a document obtained by the DCNF. The removed books included “This Book is Gay,” “Gender Queer,” “Let’s Talk About It” and “It’s Perfectly Normal,” all of which contain sexually explicit depictions according to snippets shared by Republican Gov.

'Terrified': Girl, 13, flees Ukraine, gets robbed and harassed at U.S. public school

A Ukrainian refugee teen has found her new school in San Francisco to be overrun with disrespectful students who face little discipline, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Yana, 13, believed attending Marina Middle School in San Francisco would be like a teen movie, but found it to be complete chaos as students disrespected teachers by interrupting their classes, jumping on the desks and cursing with no repercussions, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The Ukrainian refugee had her phone stolen in the cafeteria and faced bullying while attending the public school. Click for Full Text!

Feds Fund Hypersexualized “Suicide” Hotlines for Children
Post Date: 2023-02-15 21:48:41 by Charles_Byrd
The federal government is funding “suicide” schemes and a hotline promoting radical LGBT ideology and fringe hypersexualized organizations that critics have accused of “grooming” children, while state and local education officials promote the program to children in their care, concerned mothers and activists are warning. And it is happening even in conservative states. It does not take long to get from the “National Suicide Hotline” (now reachable at 988) to the so-called “Trevor Project,” a recommended resource from the hotline that promotes pseudoscientific “gender” ideology and confusion. The target: children. The group openly boasts ...

Lawmakers File Bill to Shut Down U.S. Department of Education
Post Date: 2023-02-15 20:43:04 by Charles_Byrd
A coalition of Republican lawmakers led by U.S. Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) introduced legislation to shut down the U.S. Department of Education, arguing that there is no constitutional authority for the controversial bureaucracy to exist. Top Republicans from Reagan to Trump have called for such a move but it has remained elusive thus far. The bill, dubbed “H.R. 899 – To terminate the Department of Education,” is just one sentence long: “The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2023.” If approved, the federal agency would have to cease operations prior to next year, with control reverting to states and local communities.

Pork placed outside Jewish student's dorm, mezuzahs torn down at college
Post Date: 2023-02-15 20:13:31 by Charles_Byrd
Three Jewish students at the University of Denver Colorado (UD) suffered a series of antisemitic incidents, including someone placing pork outside of a Jewish student’s dorm and mezuzahs being torn down, prompting the school to begin an investigation, according to a Monday email from university officials. StandWithUs (SWU), an antisemitism watchdog organization, first reported the incidents Tuesday, showing pictures of a pork package outside of a student’s dorm room and multiple flyers that had been torn off the student’s door. The university announced in an email obtained by SWU that it was investigating three Jewish students’ reports of vandalism and religious ...

Christian teacher fired for refusing to hide students' gender transitions from parents

A Christian California teacher lost her job for refusing to comply with a school district policy requiring her to conceal students’ gender transitions from their parents, according to a notice and statements provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation. Jessica Tapia, a former physical education teacher, told the DCNF that she refused to allow biological males in the girl’s locker rooms and would not agree to the Jurupa Unified School District’s privacy policy that required teachers to hide requests made by students regarding their pronouns or gender identity. Tapia said several students found her social media where she regularly shares her faith and values and reported her, ...

A mother in Michigan says her daughter's drawing of a pig was taken by school officials after it was deemed "inappropriate." In a now viral TikTok video, Sierra Carter explains that she got a call from her 11-year-old daughter's art teacher after she drew a colorful picture of a pig wearing a bow tie. The drawing was titled "Piggie" and showed the pig waving and wagging its tail while saying "Hi." Click for Full Text!

After Muslim Students Complained That an Art Exhibit Was 'Harmful,' Macalester College Shut It Down
Post Date: 2023-02-09 18:23:38 by Charles_Byrd
Yet another Minnesota college is embroiled in a controversy after a group of Muslim students expressed outrage over "offensive" art. Last month, Macalester College—a liberal arts college just two miles from Hamline University, where a similar controversy involving an adjunct art history professor erupted in December—briefly shut down an exhibit from an Iranian-American artist over student claims that some of the work displayed caused "harm." While the school later reinstated the art exhibit, it wasn't without caveats. Now, pages of construction paper are posted on the glass gallery doors to block the work from view, along with a "content ...

Biden's Claims About Universal Pre-K Are Malarkey
Post Date: 2023-02-08 22:12:59 by Charles_Byrd
During President Biden's State of the Union address this Tuesday, he called for expanding access to preschool for American 3- and 4-year- olds. In doing so, he made a startling claim about the effectiveness of preschool programs, stating that "children who go to preschool are nearly 50 percent more likely to finish high school and go on to earn a two- or four-year degree, no matter their background they came from." However, such dramatic evidence in favor of preschool—especially the public "universal pre-k" programs Biden has consistently advocated for— is spotty. This is particularly true when trying to give public preschool credit for positive ...

Equity Destroying Education in Va.
Post Date: 2023-02-07 18:50:49 by Charles_Byrd
Remember back when students could be recognized for being the best at something, whether it happened to be academics or athletics? On these special occasions, you might have dared to acknowledge such achievement at an all-school assembly, or at the very least inform parents of their student’s success. Those days are gone in the Old Dominion. Instead, recognition of individual high achievement has been replaced by a “participation trophy for all” subculture, where equity reigns supreme.
