A survey commissioned by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy returns shocking results. Seven percent of Americans believe brown cows produce the chocolate milk they drink. (U. Leone | Pixabay ) The Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy commissioned an online poll to determine whether Americans are knowledgeable when it comes to their dairy drink, but the results from adult respondents are shocking.

New PBS Documentary on Education in America is Creating a Stir
Post Date: 2017-06-14 18:47:57 by Anthem
Why is it that innovation occurs frequently in other areas, but not in education? This spring, PBS has been airing a three-part documentary series, "School, Inc.", spotlighting some of the successes of education choice and free-market schooling options around the world. "School, Inc." is the brainchild of Andrew Coulson, an education policy researcher who left a successful career at Microsoft to answer a perplexing question: Why is it that innovation occurs frequently in other areas, but not in education? Entrenched in a static, factory model of education, American public schools haven't changed much since the Industrial Revolution. "School, Inc." ...
Study Reveals Cuts to Sex Education and Birth Control Led to LOWER Teen Pregnancy Rates
Post Date: 2017-06-04 11:41:20 by Tooconservative
A new study has found that government cuts to spending for sex education courses and contraception have contributed to Britains lowest teen pregnancy rate in nearly 50 years, the Catholic Herald reported. Researchers David Paton of the Nottingham University Business School and Liam Wright of the University of Sheffield discovered that pregnancy rates for women under 16 have seen the sharpest decline in local authority areas that drastically cut funding for preventative programs. After observing trends in 149 local authorities between 2009 and 2014, Paton and Wright concluded that central and local government cuts to sex education and contraceptive services coincided with ...
University of Hawaii Professor: Universities Should Stop Hiring ‘White Cis Men’
Post Date: 2017-05-19 06:53:00 by cranky
A professor at the public University of Hawaii argues that the university should stop hiring white cis men. Piper Harron, an assistant professor of mathematics at the public University of Hawaii, is demanding that white cis men resign from their faculty positions, claiming that actual solutions require women of color and trans people. Harron lays out her argument for ridding academia of white men in a blog post for The American Mathematical Society. In the post, Harron asks white cis men to resign from their positions and employers to stop hiring white men in order to make room for black women and trans individuals. If you are a white cis ...
A Victory for School Reform in Los Angeles
Post Date: 2017-05-18 19:21:08 by Tooconservative
Contentious school board elections in Los Angeles served up a dramatic victory for education reformers in a district, the second-largest in the nation, that has long been dominated by teachers unions' hand-selected board members. Nick Melvoin, right, and his brother Charlie on election night. With victories for pro-reform school board contenders Nick Melvoinwho unseated longtime board president Steve Zimmerand Kelly Gonez on Tuesday, the balance of power shifted to a 4-3 majority in favor of reform measures like increased school choice, the elimination of seniority-based pay and protection for public school teachers, and the shuttering of failing schools.

Black Harvard students holding a graduation of their own
Post Date: 2017-05-17 10:50:11 by misterwhite
BOSTON (AP) Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard's first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school's traditional graduation events. It isn't meant to replace the existing ceremony, student organizers say, but rather to add something that was missing. "We really wanted an opportunity to give voice to the voiceless at Harvard," said Michael Huggins, president of the Harvard Black Graduate Student Alliance, a ...
K-12: Knowledge Containment Protocols
Post Date: 2017-05-16 11:44:43 by Tooconservative
Schools have always been devoted to passing knowledge forward to the next generation. Not now. The Education Establishment treats knowledge as if it were a toxic spill that must be kept away from students. Board up the windows; tape the doors; wrap the buildings in three-mil. plastic. This might sound comical or far-fetched. But I assure you that the Progressives in charge of our schools are methodical about using any pretext to minimize contamination by knowledge. Everyone should wonder why. In the beginning of the Progressive era, the attack on knowledge was straightforward. The basic claim was, who needs it? John Dewey sneeringly ...
Hidden horror of school sex assaults revealed by AP
Post Date: 2017-05-01 23:27:02 by cranky
Chaz Wing was 12 when they came after him. The classmates who tormented him were children, too, entering the age of pimples and cracking voices. Eventually, he swore under oath, the boys raped him and left him bleeding, the culmination of a year of harassment. Though Chaz repeatedly told teachers and administrators about insults and physical attacks, he didn't report being sexually assaulted until a year later, launching a long legal fight over whether his school had done enough to protect him. Chaz's saga is more than a tale of escalating bullying. Across the U.S., thousands of students have been sexually assaulted, by other students, in high schools, junior highs and even ...

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 ...

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (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. Howard County Superintendent Renee Foose tells The Baltimore Sun (http://bsun.md/2hvhPVO) that she put the Mount Hebron High School English teacher on leave for four days last week after learning of the incident.

Cockley says the activity was culturally insensitive. Foose apologized for the ...
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 ...

The United Educators of San Francisco, the union that represents teachers in the citys public schools, released a controversial guide Wednesday to teaching public school children about Donald Trumps victory over Hillary Clinton in the recent election. The guide, called the Lesson Plan on the November 2016 Election, informs teachers that a racist and sexist man has become the president of our country by pandering to a huge racist and sexist base, and suggests they teach children the same.In fact, the lesson plan urges teachers not to tell students that Hillary Clinton lost the election (original emphasis): DO NOT: Tell them that we have LOST and that ...

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. Now, campus officials are responding to demands from the Black Student Union to create a new space on campus where ...
