High School Teacher Suspended For Pro-Gun Comments On Parkland Shooting
Post Date: 2018-03-04 01:03:40 by 3-Dee
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 ...

Why Combat Vets Love Jordan Peterson --- The need for benevolent monsters. Posted Feb 22, 2018 “I turned myself into a monster to fight against the monsters of the world” ---- —Earth Crisis, Nemesis Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson has attracted a massive—and growing—fan base. Both his calm navigations when confronted by PC shakedown artists and his charge at academia to reassert itself as a vanguard of fact over feeling and rationality over political climate have resulted in substantial praise. While Dr. Peterson’s views are praised by various people for various reasons, and while his core following may be men ages 20 to 30, many men in their 30s and 40 ...

The 10 Worst Colleges For Free Speech: 2018
Post Date: 2018-02-26 10:15:17 by Deckard
Every year, FIRE chooses the 10 worst colleges for free speech — and unfortunately, 2017 left us with plenty of options:Campuses were rocked by violent mob censorship, monitored by bias response teams, plagued by free speech zones, and beset by far too many disinvitation attempts. Although the number of colleges with the most restrictive speech codes has continued to decline, 90 percent of schools still maintain codes that either clearly restrict or could too easily be used to restrict free speech. Today, we present our 2018 list of the 10 worst colleges for free speech. As always, our list is presented in no particular order, and it includes both ...

The Top 10 Most Disturbing Statistics From Mark Steyn’s “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon” by John Hawkins | September 8, 2011 6:14 am Mark Steyn’s After America: Get Ready for Armageddon[1] is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.

The first is the top 10 most disturbing quotations from After America: Get Ready for Armageddon[1]. Then tomorrow, that will be followed up with the 10 best quotations from the book.

Delaware students can now choose their own race. This should end well
Post Date: 2018-02-14 19:45:27 by Tooconservative
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
Post Date: 2018-02-12 09:43:01 by Deckard
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’
Post Date: 2018-02-06 06:01:25 by 3-Dee
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 ...

Study Shows Kids are Born Creative Geniuses But the Education System Destroys Imagination
Post Date: 2018-02-05 09:22:49 by Deckard
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, ...

Teen arrested for hurling bleach on pickle juice-throwing attacker in Queens high school
Post Date: 2018-02-03 09:37:48 by misterwhite
A 15-year-old girl splattered with pickle juice during a fight at her Queens high school was apprehended by police Friday after she threw bleach at her opponent, police said. 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 ...

[Teachers] Unions Inc.
Post Date: 2018-02-01 10:58:05 by Tooconservative
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. Just a tad over ...

After University of Nebraska censors pro-capitalism club, lawmakers offer bills to protect free speech
Post Date: 2018-02-01 10:15:23 by Tooconservative
Also protects ‘counter demonstrations’ that don’t heckle As free speech on college campuses faces continued attack, Nebraska is taking steps to ensure its own public colleges don’t join the censorship parade. Two bills in the unicameral Legislature dealing with the free speech and press rights of students were introduced last month. Republican Sen. Steve Halloran introduced the Higher Education Free Speech Accountability Act (LB-718), which would protect free speech rights for students in Nebraska public higher education. LB-886, which has no formal name, is sponsored by Democratic Sen. Adam Morfeld. It would protect student journalism rights in both K-12 and higher ...

Inside a Public School Social Justice Factory
Post Date: 2018-02-01 09:49:10 by Tooconservative
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 ...

DeVos casually announces funeral for Common Core
Post Date: 2018-01-18 11:59:22 by Tooconservative
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?

Five Ways Schools Destroy Children’s Freedom (And What To Do About It)

By Jennifer Lade Parenting for Freedom article series: This is the fourth in a series of articles that analyzes how freedom-loving people can align their parenting with their political philosophy, and how doing so will allow ideas about personal liberty to carry on to the next generation. If you’re a freedom-loving parent, you’re probably doing all you can to give your children autonomy in their own lives. You’re treating them well in the present. But you’re also looking to the long-term goals of raising self-reliant adults who desire freedom for themselves and others. When your kids are with you, you treat them with respect and love. ...

ESPN Can’t Afford Monday Night Football Any More
Post Date: 2017-10-31 15:36:54 by Tooconservative
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! Last year I wrote this about ESPN’s challenges as it pertained to Monday Night Football: “ESPN presently pays $1.9 billion a year for Monday Night Football. (This is a ...

The dam holding back school choice will soon collapse [at USSC]
Post Date: 2017-10-02 13:08:13 by Tooconservative
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 ...

High School Grades Linked to Healthy, Unhealthy Behaviors
Post Date: 2017-09-09 22:01:39 by Tooconservative
As far back as middle school or even grade school, it was relatively easy to determine which students would grow up to make something of themselves and which would not. A person from my 4th grade class who we all knew was trouble was recently sentenced to nine years in jail for stealing a state vehicle. It's doubtful that anybody is surprised. Though there clearly are exceptions, the general rule is that good, well behaved students have a better chance at success than bad, poorly behaved students. But success isn't the only thing that matters. Health does, too, and new data on high school students from the CDC shows a consistent link between a student's grades and healthy or ...

Enrollment down, dorms closing at Univ. of Missouri; Is this the price of political correctness?
Post Date: 2017-09-04 18:40:14 by Tooconservative
The University of Missouri is home to perhaps the most infamous example of student “safe space” protests, a 2015 incident where a professor was captured on video harassing a student journalist. Now, the school is facing a substantial drop in enrollment, fewer attendees at football games, closing dorms and alumni who don’t want to support Mizzou anymore. Melissa Click, an assistant professor who taught in the school’s communication department, was fired in February 2016 several months after after she was caught on video yelling at a student journalist who was trying to cover a protest. Her cries for “muscle” to help remove the student from the event became a ...

As Trump administration promises end to Title IX witch hunts, witch-hunters cry foul
Post Date: 2017-07-16 00:46:55 by Tooconservative
Due process for black students is a problem for Know Your IX When the inquisitions end, the inquisition cheer squad becomes the jeer squad. Trump administration officials in the departments of Education and Justice told a gathering of college attorneys this week that they aren’t going to search indefinitely for Title IX and other civil rights violations if the evidence isn’t there. Inside Higher Ed reports that acting Office for Civil Rights chief Candice Jackson and her Justice counterpart Thomas Wheeler told lawyers they will enforce civil rights “less confrontationally and more cooperatively” than their predecessors, who turned previously low-profile investigations ...

University of Arizona Says They Have No Relationship with Visiting Scholar Who Identifies as a Hippo
Post Date: 2017-06-26 20:18:03 by cranky
A spokesperson for the University of Arizona claimed that they have no ties with a visiting scholar from France who identifies as a hippopotamus. Florentin Félix Morin, who is listed on the University of Arizona’s website as a visiting scholar, argued in the Journal of Theoretical Humanities that his hippo alter-ego has allowed him to navigate the world free from the constraints that “govern human bodies.” This article explores the formation of a tranimal, hippopotamus alter-ego. Confronting transgender with transpecies, the author claims that his hippopotamus “identity” allowed him to (verbally) escape, all at once, several sets of categorization that ...

16.4 Million Americans Think Chocolate Milk Comes From Brown Cows, Survey Reveals

The online poll, which returned results from across North America, shows that at least 7 percent of Americans believe brown cows produce their much-loved chocolate milk drink. While it is true that the number seems low when compared to the other 93 percent who could be aware of where ...

The Evergreen story is well known to right-wing media consumers by now — John has been tracking it on our site for weeks — but there’s much to be gained from seeing and hearing the major players describe it in their own words. “I have often wondered what it would be like to capture people in the midst of an ideological re-education exercise,” wrote Reason’s Matt Welch of this clip. “[N]ow I wonder no more.” The most pitiful creature here isn’t one of the young ...
