(CNSNews.com) - Sixty-five percent of the eighth graders in American public schools in 2017 were not proficient in reading and 67 percent were not proficient in mathematics, according to the results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress test results released by the U.S. Department of Education. The results are far worse for students enrolled in some urban districts. Among the 27 large urban districts for which the Department of Education published 2017 NAEP test scores, the Detroit public schools had the lowest percentage of students who scored proficient or better in math and the lowest percentage who scored proficient or better in reading. Only 5 percent of Detroit ...

A Michelangelo I am not but, still I am going to try and paint a picture for you. Not one on canvas, but one for your mind. Try to imagine, if you would, a large room, a very large room, say one that is five football fields long, three football fields wide, and one football field high. There are three doors in the room, one that everyone being tried walks through. Yes being tried, for the room is a court room. But not just any court room, this is the last court, it is a court with no appeal. It is a court with no prosecuting attorney and no defense attorneys. Each defendant stands on his own to be judged. That door is at the very east end of the room, close to the North East corner of ...

"White Privilege" is a Racist Concept, and Trying to Teach It is a Racist Act Posted at 4:30 pm on April 5, 2018 by Brandon Morse As I was writing an article earlier about a PTA at a North Carolina elementary school attempting to teach parents and kids about the concept of “white privilege,” it occurred to me that the true evil behind the concept and the spread of it isn’t often talked about. The concept of “white privilege” is that because someone is born with white skin, that they have it far easier in society than those with darker skin. While I don’t at all deny that other racial community’s have their own problems, to dismiss the fact ...

On "Fox & Friends," Abby Huntsman interviewed a Georgia middle school student who captured audio of her teacher ripping President Donald Trump and his "Make America Great Again" slogan. Josie Orihuela of Hampton Middle School near Atlanta began recording on her phone when sixth-grade teacher Johnetta Benton began reaming out the president. "When my president says let's Make America Great Again, when was he talking about?" Benton is heard asking, and later adding that Trump must mean when "[America] was great for Europeans." "Because," Benton continues, "when it comes to minorities, America has never been great for ...

A Pennsylvania school district is arming classrooms with buckets of rocks as a last-ditch defense against mass shooters. David Helsel, superintendent of the Blue Mountain School District in Schuylkill County, told ABC News on Friday that every elementary, middle and high school classroom in the district is stocked with a 5-gallon bucket full of river stones for students and teachers to pelt an armed intruder. “We’ve been trying to be proactive just in case,” Mr. Helsel said. “How can you aim a gun if you’re being pelted with rocks?” Mr. Helsel said faculty members and students are given active shooter training through a program known as ALICE, which stands ...

A New Jersey high school teacher has been suspended from his job for expressing support for arming teachers after the Parkland school shooting. WATCH: Cherry Hill High School history teacher Timothy Locke, 59, said he was placed on administrative leave last week because he spoke out in one of his classes about arming teachers and ramping up school security to try and prevent a school shooting. Locke allegedly said that a similar shooting could happen at Cherry Hill and he would put himself between the gunman and the students. Most of the students reportedly didn’t have a problem with Locke’s comments, but one was so distraught by the comments she was escorted to the ...

Delaware students can now choose their own race. This should end well

The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as “Regulation 225.” Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard children’s “protected characteristics,” such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity. Section 7.4(1) of 225’s Prohibition of Discrimination Code states, “All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race, which is maintained in the school.” Gender isn’t news. But race? Are they really going there? Yes, they apparently are. Too late for Rachel Dolezal, alas. Remember her? The Spokane, Wash., native became a ...

Teenage Dystopia: The Cycle of Oppression and Resistance

Teenagers already live in a dystopia. Their lives are controlled by the government and their parents. If legal adults were treated like American teenagers, that government would be considered one of the most oppressive on Earth. The government requires 6-16-year-olds to attend a government institution that subjects them to unconstitutional searches. Here, in public schools, they must ask permission to use the bathroom, eat when they are told, and not speak unless called upon. If you are under 18 you cannot work without government permission, and cannot even walk on public sidewalks at certain times of day, like during school hours or after a certain time of night. And the age that ...

Public Minnesota Kindergarten Class Teaches Children About ‘White Privilege’ by Tom Ciccotta 2 Feb 2018 A public school district in Minnesota is taking a radical social justice approach to the education of their youngest children. Young students in the Edina School District in Edina, Minnesota, will be introduced to the concept of “white privilege” as early as kindergarten, according to a new report from the Weekly Standard. The report details some of the unusual practices of the district. As a result, the school system’s obsession with “white privilege” now begins in kindergarten. At Edina’s Highlands Elementary School, for example, K-2 ...

Dr. George Land and Beth Jarman were commissioned by NASA to help the space agency identify and develop creative talent. The two were tasked to research school children in an attempt to identify creative individuals from which the agency could pick to help with their many products. In a recent TED talk, Land described his team’s surprising findings on the education system which are nothing short of shocking. It seems American schoolchildren lose their ability to think creatively over time. As students enter their educational journey, they retain most of their abilities to think creatively. In other words, children are born with creative genius. Employing a longitudinal study model, ...

Her victim, 14, was briefly hospitalized with minor injuries after the fight at Benjamin Cordozo High School, cops said. The brawl, which could have left the victim blind, was over a boy, according to classmates who watched the brawl break out. “There was pulling hair and everything,” said one student, who didn’t want to be named. “Someone threw bleach. “I saw it. Everyone saw it,” the stunned teen said. “I don’t think anything like that has ever happened before.” The ...

AFT prez Randi Weingarten The teachers unions really need to get some new talking points. Granted, straw men and hyperbole are common in political discourse, but union verbiage needs a serious makeover – the old model is giving hypocrisy a bad name. In a simply awful piece, American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten [pictured above] railed against Donald Trump’s new health plan in the Huffington Post last month. Forget her distortion of facts; the title alone is LOL funny: “GOP Rewards The Rich, Rips Off The Rest Of Us.” We are led to believe that ol’ Randi is just-plain-folks, but the union boss hauled in $472,197 last year.

Inside a Public School Social Justice Factory

For decades, the public schools of Edina, Minnesota, were the gold standard among the state’s school districts. Edina is an upscale suburb of Minneapolis, but virtually overnight, its reputation has changed. Academic rigor is unraveling, high school reading and math test scores are sliding, and students increasingly fear bullying and persecution. The shift began in 2013, when Edina school leaders adopted the “All for All” strategic plan—a sweeping initiative that reordered the district’s mission from academic excellence for all students to “racial equity.” “Equity” in this context does not mean “equality” or “fairness.” It ...

Through all the raging debates coming out of the first year of Trump’s presidency, there has been one hot button issue which has been noticeably absent. What ever happened to Common Core? That concept, first unleashed primarily by Democrats as soon as Barack Obama was sworn into office, was a serious bone of contention between liberals and conservatives. The battles over the program were simply epic, with the teachers’ unions fighting tooth and nail over it while many conservatives demanded more local control, tailored to the unique needs of states and communities.See Also: Time’s up for Woody Allen?

ESPN pays $2 billion a year to the NFL for Monday Night Football and one NFL wild card playoff game. I’ve written for the past couple of years that as ESPN’s business collapses that ESPN’s decision on whether or not to bid to keep Monday Night Football would be the first big test of how rapidly that business is deteriorating. What’s a deteriorating business look like? In the month of October ESPN lost over 15,000 subscribers a day in October per the latest Nielson estimates. 15,000 a day!

The teachers' unions blockade, which deprives poor children of good education, is starting to crack. The latest fissures are created by a study of the country's largest private school choice program. According to researchers, the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship program, which provides vouchers, increased college enrollment rates by about 6 percentage points for students who participated at all. For those who were in the program for four or more years, the college enrollment rate was as much as 17 points higher. Before anyone leaps to suggest that this really just means those schools cream off the best students, opponents of school choice should know that children in the program ...
