    The world recently learned that the American Psychological Association promotes “polyamory,” “swinging,” and “relationship anarchy.” Their experts say it’s healthy and ethical. They’re crazy.Leftists who run our nation’s public schools love to hide behind the skirts of the APA when it comes to crazy Sex Ed. So in a recent column I wondered how long it would take for them to push polyamory on the pubertal.Then I learned they already do.Targeting California Kids It was a California teacher who discovered the “LGBT Consensual Non-Monogamy Task Force.” She was reviewing the state department of education’s “health” lesson mandates for the fall and stumbled across...

    A June video shows the ACLU instructing California public school teachers on how to help children obtain abortions without parental consent. The video exposes involvement by the ACLU, Planned Parenthood and the California Board of Eduation. Progressive sex education programs teach children about oral sex, masturbation, role-playing and more.

    While researching what would become their 2009 book, Becoming Right: How Campuses Shape Young Conservatives, sociologists Amy Binder and Kate Wood conducted extensive student interviews at two schools: Harvard and the University of Colorado at Boulder. Although the faculty members they encountered were overwhelmingly liberal, Ms. Binder and Ms. Wood found that students at Boulder were far likelier [than Harvard students] to contend that their professors bring those personal politics into the classroom. The authors visit to Boulder coincided with the arrival of Bruce Benson as president of the University of Colorado system. If they returned now, on the eve...

    Across the nation, local school districts are pushing radical transgender education policies on public school children of all ages. Worse still, some policies even encourage teachers to hide a child’s gender transition from his parents. Three shocking examples from Texas, California, and Virginia show how it’s happening and what parents can do to stop it.In 2016, Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) Superintendent Kent Scribner unilaterally imposed transgender guidelines on his entire school district in North Texas. The mandatory guidelines he approved—without a board vote or public comment—encouraged students and school personnel to keep transgender status secret from parents. After...

    If you want to understand the mystery of why we spend so many billions of dollars and get crummy schools, here are some options. You can read a hundred books. You can spend many years earning a Ph.D. in history. You can try to bribe the director of the CIA or consult a psychic. Alas, you probably won't find the truth. I suggest you spring for the lazy-man, two-word explanation: Red Ed. Arguably, that's what we've got. The almost comical thing about the U.S. is that most people persist in believing that the top educators are harmless, nice, pleasant,...

    When you send your youngster off to college, you might not mind that they will have to walk on eggshells, respect taboos, snitch on fellow students for politically incorrect jokes and learn to use ad hominem arguments as a means to attack ideas they find "disagreeable." If that's your preference, you can choose from a wide variety of America's top-ranked colleges. If you want to send your youngster to colleges that are seriously committed to civil and diverse debate, pick up a copy of the June 2019 edition of Reason magazine for some guidance. Professors Debra Mashek and Jonathan Haidt...

    Dan Freemyer, the pastor of Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth, has obviously been drinking very deeply of Progressive Leftism's poisonous propaganda of the lie. To cheers from the crowd at Baylor University's 2019 commencement, Freemyer delivered a poison-loaded prayer to a 'god' that is not the Holy Triune God but pagan Progressivism's golden calf: "God, give them the moral imagination to reject the old keys we are trying to give them to a planet that we are poisoning by running it on fossil fuels and misplaced priorities a planet with too many straight, white men like me behind...

    A new survey of college students by the liberal-leaning Knight Foundation shows the future of the First Amendment doesn't look so bright in America. It found 41 percent said "hate speech" should not be protected by the Constitution. Only 58 percent thought it should. In fact, a 2017 survey out of UCLA found that out of 1,500 college students who were asked whether "hate speech" is protected by the First Amendment, only 39 percent correctly said yes. On campus today, it can be defined as "unsafe" to hear an opinion you don't like. Unwelcome speech is compared to a physical...

    ... [C]ollege tuition is not an act of God, beyond human control. It is a result of decisions taken by colleges themselvesabove all, decisions to bulk up their bureaucracies. Bureaucratic outlays rose at nearly twice the rate as teaching outlays from 1993 to 2007, according to the Goldwater Institute. From 1997 to 2012, colleges hired new administrators at twice the rate of any student-body increase, the New England Center for Investigative Reporting found. Colleges inevitably claim that government mandates force this administrative bloat upon them. But the vast majority of administrative hires are voluntary: for every dollar in mandated bureaucratic...

    Researchers the Obama administration funded to assist Common Cores rollout recently found, to their surprise, that under Common Core U.S. student achievement has sunk (h/t Lance Izumi). Contrary to our expectation, we found that [Common Core] had significant negative effects on 4th graders reading achievement during the 7 years after the adoption of the new standards, and had a significant negative effect on 8th graders math achievement 7 years after adoption based on analyses of NAEP composite scores, the Center on Standards, Alignment, Instruction and Learning (C-SAIL) preliminary study said. The size of these negative effects, however, was generally small....

    In controversial implicit bias training, New York Citys public-school educators have been told to focus on black children over white ones and one Jewish superintendent who described her familys Holocaust tragedies was scolded and humiliated, according to firsthand accounts. A consultant hired by the city Department of Education told administrators at a workshop that racial equity means favoring black children regardless of their socio-economic status, sources said.

    It's telling that, in order to claim that science is on their side, trans activists need to bully actual scientists into silence about what the data and human experience actually suggests. According to legend, Galileo defiantly muttered and yet it moves after the Inquisition forced him to abjure his Copernican views. Although unverified, this story became a popular anecdote in the history of science, giving voice to the passionate love for inquiry and truth, even in the face of dogmatic threats of violence. If the transgender movement has its way, we shall soon see many more like Galileo, forced by...

    Most Americans are not aware how morally and intellectually destructive American colleges -- and, increasingly, high schools and even elementary schools -- have become. So, they spend tens of thousands after-tax dollars to send their sons and daughters to college. But today, to send your child to college is to play Russian roulette with their values. There is a good chance your child will return from college alienated from you, from America, from Western civilization and from whatever expression of any Bible-based religion in which you raised your child. If you think this is in any way an exaggeration, here...

    When the Truth becomes inappropriate, the end of civilization nears. What a tangled web we weave when first we seek to deceive. Consider the mess the World is in. How has that happened? War is the result of dishonest behavior, isn't it? The failure to honestly, openly & effectively communicate with each other results in violent confrontations. Rational objective discussion & debate must rule for there to be peace. At this point, the opposition to the Trump leadership has offered no rational argument with a complicent contolled media propping their idiotic nonsense. It is a sad moment in the history...

    Holmdel high school student Boris Kizenko has a 4.0-grade point average and has racked up 400 hours of community service. He was rejected by the Honor Society for character issues and the reason he says is that he used a quote of Donald Trumps. It is New Jersey! The problem began when he ran for re-election as class president using the slogan, Make Holmdel Great Again, which he said he used to be different and stand out. He didnt win re-election, and the administration was greatly displeased with his choice of a slogan. He was the class president at the...
