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’

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

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, ...

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 ...

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 Can’t Afford Monday Night Football Any More

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 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

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?

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 ...

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 ...

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

A new study has found that government cuts to spending for sex education courses and contraception have contributed to Britain’s 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 ...

With victories for pro-reform school board contenders Nick Melvoin—who unseated longtime board president Steve Zimmer—and 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.
