    If you send your kids off to high school thinking they will learn how to diagram sentences and write competently, you may want to check their English requirements. John F. Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has other ideas about learning English that include gender-neutral pronouns, discussions of sexuality, and anti-white propaganda. A student posted an assignment to social media, handed out by teacher Emily Thomson of Kennedy High's English department, that detailed "power and privilege" in America which, according to the assignment, names "U.S. born," "white people," "Christians," "middle, owning class," "heterosexuals," "men," and "veterans" as the oppressors...
  • Why I'm hostile toward public education

    Ever since I became a parent and faced the options for educating our daughters, I’ve become increasingly antagonistic toward public schools. Since our daughters are currently 20 and 22 years old and out on their own, that’s a long time to be disillusioned by our nation’s educational system. To modify an old saying, we didn’t leave public education; public education left us. Unfortunately, over the past two decades, schools have only gotten worse and we’ve never, ever regretted the decision to homeschool our girls. I feel sorry for young parents these days who face similar decisions. If anything, schools have...

    HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) -- Students and parents in a Virginia neighborhood learned shocking news at the start of this school year. Several students from both middle and high school stand and wait for the bus on one Henrico street corner. This year, the home next to the bus stop has an electric fence around the yard - just inches away from where students wait. The man who put the fence up did not post a sign on the fence to warn the children, which prompted a call to Henrico police. "It's insane," said one resident who didn't wish to...

    Students at an Ohio middle school were asked to decide who they would leave behind if the world was about to end, using age, religion and other descriptions as markers for their decisions. The assignment sparked widespread uproar. “Whom to Leave Behind” asked students at Roberts Middle School in Cuyahoga Falls to choose eight out of 12 people to put into a space ship and take to a different planet because the world was ending, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. Choices included a homosexual pro athlete, a militant African-American medical student and a female movie star who was a victim...

    If you want to control people’s thoughts, begin by commandeering their words. Taking this Orwellian lesson to heart, Virginia’s Fairfax County public school system recently stripped the phrase “biological gender” from its family life curriculum, replacing it with “sex assigned at birth.” Without permitting parents to opt out, public schools across the country are teaching children that “gender” is neither binary nor biological. It’s closer to a mental state: a question of how girllike or boylike you feel. Students will fall anywhere along a gender spectrum, according to these educators. So how girllike does any girl feel? The answer might...

    A Union Mine High School student is facing battery charges after an altercation in her classroom over a Donald Trump "Make America Great Again" campaign hat, reports CBS Sacramento. In cellphone video, a teacher is seen trying to subdue fired-up 17-year-old senior Jo-Ann Butler after she became enraged at a classmate for wearing the MAGA hat. She grabbed the hat off his head. "That's a racist and hateful symbol," Butler said. She is now facing two counts of battery, one on her classmate and one on her teacher, who deputies say she slapped as he escorted her from the room.

    Riverside County health officials on Monday morning were urging dozens of students to get tested at a local elementary school after a staff member was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Letters have been sent out to the parents or guardians of about 160 students at Westside Elementary School in Thermal who may have been exposed to the infectious disease, according to a news release from Riverside University Health System, Public Health. Those who receive the letter from the agency should have their child tested at a tuberculosis clinic, officials said. The clinic will take place at the school at an undetermined date....

Student Tamarion Wilson, 10, was made to write out the word 'ma'am' repeatedly during class on Tuesday at North East Carolina Preparatory School in Tarboro, North Carolina. His mother Teretha Wilson was shocked when he returned home from the public charter school with the sheet of paper, for her to sign...

    Parents of a fifth grader are concerned after their child was punished for referring to his teacher as "ma'am." Teretha Wilson said she noticed something was wrong Tuesday when her 10-year old son Tamarion got off the school bus from North East Carolina Preparatory School. "I asked him what happened. He said he got in trouble for saying 'yes ma'am'," explained Wilson. Confused by his response, Tamarion pulled out a sheet of paper with the word "ma'am" written on it four times per line on both sides. He says his teacher told him to write the word on the sheet...

    A rural Oklahoma school system was closed for two days last week after adults posted violent threats on Facebook against a 12-year-old transgender girl. After several tumultuous days, the trans student’s mother told NBC News she and her family are hoping to move out of town — and have received help to do so from donors around the country. “LET MADDIE BE MADDIE” Brandy Rose said her daughter, Maddie, who was assigned male at birth, began articulating that she felt like a girl when she was about 4. “As far back as I can remember, her expression has always been...

    A 'sexist' sign at a Houston school has been removed after it caused an uproar on social media. The quote, which sat above a row of lockers at Gregory-Lincoln elementary school in Houston Independent School District, read: 'The more you act like a lady, the more he'll act like a gentleman.' Many expressed their horror, saying they believed the quote was victim-blaming and perpetuating the women are responsible for men's actions. The quote began drawing controversy on Friday when Houston resident Lisa Beckman tweeted a picture of it. 'This is the wall at Gregory-Lincoln Middle School in Houston ISD,' she...

    No more separate restrooms for boys and girls, with rows of feet-showing stalls. The North Kansas City school district is going fully gender neutral at two new elementary schools, opening on Wednesday, as well as in a few renovated restrooms in North Kansas City High School and the sixth-grade centers. The bathrooms still have an open alcove area with a common trough sink, but the toilets are enclosed inside individual stalls with floor-to-ceiling walls and lockable doors.

    A study that shows a huge jump in children who identify as transgender can be traced to a culture pushing the idea. "Children are steeped in this culture, at least through the developed western world," observes Dr. Micelle Cretella, "that is basically marketing this transgender identity to them." A study performed earlier this year shows nearly three percent of 13-to 17-year-olds identify as transgender as compared to less than one percent just a year ago. The study, published by American Academy of Pediatrics, looked at approximately 81,000 ninth and 11th grade students in Minnesota. Experts say those results can be...

    Controversy is a part of art, and for Texas art teacher Stacey Bailey, that statement is all too true. In September 2017 Bailey was allegedly barred from her classroom at Charlotte Anderson Elementary School in Arlington, Texas after a parent complained she was pushing her "homosexual agenda" on her students. Bailey claims she had shown her students a photo of her and her wife's fish costumes from the Disney movie "Finding Nemo," which elicited the initial complaint from parents. When she taught her students about gay artist Jasper Johns, she said parents complained again, resulting in Bailey being placed on...

    CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Some North Carolina elementary school teachers were initially told they would lose their jobs if they didn't pass a Math test they call difficult and unfair. Teachers say they recently got a call from their school district informing them they have another year to pass the test. Hundreds of teachers have failed the test repeatedly. Teachers argue what's on the test has nothing to do with what they teach in a classroom for students in Kindergarten to 5th grade. "Never in a million years would we even come close to teaching some of the topics on...

    A Massachusetts bill that recommended teaching children as young as 12 about oral and anal sex failed in the state House last week amid growing public outrage. The College Fix reports state Senate Bill 2128 passed the state Senate but died in the House last week when the legislative session ended. The bill seemed harmless enough at first. It would have required public schools to provide “comprehensive” sex education that is medically accurate and age-appropriate. This included “the benefits of abstinence and delaying sexual activity” and “the effective use of contraceptives and barrier methods.” However, Andrew Beckwith, president of the...
