    Massachusetts preschool tells children to stop saying 'best friend' By Greg Norman | Fox News None of the students at a Massachusetts preschool have a best friend. And that's an order. Pentucket Workshop Preschool's "best friend" policy is being blasted by a parent who says her daughter got upset after reportedly being told by a teacher she couldn’t use the term because it could make other students feel excluded. "How do you police a 4-year-old from expressing their feelings?" Christine Hartwell, whose daughter, Julia, attends the Georgetown school, told FOX25 Boston. "It's outrageous, it's silly [and] it hurts. Hartwell added:...

    The lives of American slaves had both "positives," and "negatives." List them. That's what one San Antonio charter school homework assignment said. It was sent home with eighth-graders on Wednesday. "My wife picks [our son] up from school and as soon as they pull out of the parking lot, he showed her the assignment and was pretty distraught by having to perform such a classroom assignment," concerned parent Robert Livar told KABB. "Naturally my wife was upset, sent me the photo that went viral." ~snip~ On Thursday, the San Antonio charter school, Great Hearts, Monte Vista campus, issued an apology...

    Left-wing indoctrination is nothing new to "blue" California but sex education has evolved from safety and science to full-blown propaganda. Every middle schooler and high schooler in California must sit through sex-ed classes that include information about birth control and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS. Students are also taught to affirmatively recognize – in other words, praise - different sexual orientations and gender identities. Parents are free to pull their kids out of the sex-ed classes but according to at least one school attorney from Orange County, they may not excuse their children from the pro-homosexual propaganda.

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | 04/15/2018 | Paul Sperry
    Broward County, Fla., school officials portray as a great success their Obama administration-inspired program offering counseling to students who break the law, instead of having them arrested or expelled. They insist that it played no role in February’s school massacre by Nikolas Cruz. They also claim that in fact juvenile recidivism rates are down and school safety is up, thanks to the program. The evidence tells a far different story. Broward County juvenile justice division records, federal studies of Broward school district safety and the district's own internal reporting show that years of “intensive" counseling didn’t just fail to reform...

    A soon-to-be-released updated edition of an Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History textbook teaches students that white Christian Americans are finding it “difficult to adjust” to becoming a minority and puts forward the perception that President Donald Trump’s election occurred because his apparent “racism connected with a significant number of primary voters.” James Fraser’s By the People: A History of the United States, 2ndEdition, is published by Pearson and has a 2019 copyright date. Alex Clark – co-host of the Indiana-based morning radio Joe and Alex Show– tweeted photos of the cover and several pages of the book that she reports...

    Another Pennsylvania school district adopted an unorthodox approach this month to fighting back against armed intruders — this time, in the form of tiny wooden bats. Millcreek Township School District in suburban Erie handed out the 16-inch “souvenir bats” to more than 500 teachers and staff on April 2 after updating its security plan in the wake of high-profile school shootings across the country. The district serves more than 7,400 students and spent roughly $1,800 on the bats. Superintendent William Hall defended the decision Thursday after media reports surfaced mocking the district’s approach. “We hope the day will never...

    MONTVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) - A substitute teacher at Montville High School is facing charges after allegedly holding a "fight club" in a classroom during school hours. Police arrested 23-year-old Ryan Fish of Bozrah on Thursday following an investigation that began in Dec., 2017. Officials say Fish, the substitute math teacher who was an employee of the Montville Board of Education, supervised the fights that occurred in Oct., 2017. The fights are detailed in an arrest warrant. The students were 16, 15, and 14-years-old, and they were unevenly matched in what were slap fights across the face and head. The warrant...

    More than one-fifth of millennials in the U.S. -- 22 percent -- haven't heard of, or aren't sure if they've heard of, the Holocaust, according to a study published Thursday, on Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day. The study, which was commissioned by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and conducted by Schoen Consulting, also found that 11 percent of U.S. adults overall haven't heard of the Holocaust or aren't sure if they did. Additionally, 41 percent of millennials believe two million Jews or fewer were killed during the Holocaust, the study found. Six million Jews were killed in World...

    An Erie school district has bought hundreds of new baseball bats – and it’s not planning a massive expansion of any sports programs. The Millcreek Township School District outside Erie distributed the miniature bats to 500 teachers last week as part of a training program on how to deal with school shooters, the Pittsburgh Tribune reports. Superintendent William Hall says it cost the district around $1,800 to buy 600 16-inch baseball bats, including some that will be placed in offices and other common areas. Hall says the bats are to give teachers a chance to fight back as part of...

    RUSH: This is Brill. Rosamond, California. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello. CALLER: Hi, Rush. I’m a former educator. I taught for several years down in LA. My thing is that what we see among the Millennials in the high schools is not accidental. It’s because of their schooling. The word “school” comes from a Greek word that means to control, hinder, or retard. And that’s what it does. Years ago I was corrected or chastised by two different principals and told, “You cannot use the United States Constitution in teaching social studies to your third graders.”...

    Principal charged after student comes forward with sex tapeAn Ohio principal faces charges after a student reportedly came forward with a sex tape starring him and the school official, authorities said. Courtney Alfred, a principal at Education Alternatives, was charged Thursday with sexual battery for her alleged relationship with a 17-year-old student enrolled at the Bedford school, news station WOIO reported. Her arrest came last week after the teen notified police and claimed he was sexually involved with the 39-year-old principal. Police said he provided a video of himself having intercourse with a person who had the same tattoo as...

    The same "progressives" who have made American higher education into indoctrination chambers for cultural Marxism, identity racism and other anti-American ideas are targeting our K-12 public schools. For instance: At the Edina School District in Edina, Minnesota, all employees, even bus drivers, must take "Equity and Racial Justice Training" instructing them that "dismantling white privilege" is at the core of the district's mission. They must acknowledge their racial guilt, and embrace the district's "equity" ideology. To enhance "cultural diversity," students at Maryland's La Plata High School were ordered to copy the Islamic creed "Shahada" which states in part, "There is...

    Aldous Huxley devised a single beautiful image for capturing all of these hopes and fears: a hi-tech assembly line where infants were manufactured to specification.  In particular, oxygen levels were adjusted to create babies of very low, low, medium, and very high intelligence.  This image, this metaphor, was stunning in its concreteness.  A huge industrial operation, all clean and shiny, all stainless steel and glass, did what nobody had thought of doing before: control human intelligence in embryo. It turns out there is an activity in the real world, in real society, that is exactly parallel.  That was the creation of...

    America knows Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students through mainly a handful of pro-gun control activist students, but according to a faculty member of the school where the deadly shooting took place, many other students say the most visible activists do not represent them. “I’ve had some students approach me privately to talk to me about it, but I should note that those student activists none of them were ever in any danger during this whole thing…none of them except for the one girl Samantha Fuentes,” the faculty member said during an interview with NRATV on the condition of anonymity....

    When public school officials in Middleburgh, New York, called an assembly and used it to promote outrageous anti-Second Amendment propaganda demonizing American gun owners, at least one student objected. After the assembly, 17-year-old Christian Breault expressed his concerns about it to other students. In response, Breault was attacked by an indoctrinated anti-gun student who had become agitated from the propaganda pushed by the school. And when Breault defended himself from the bully, the same school officials who sought to indoctrinate the children with their agenda punished him for it. Now, the student's father wants the principal to step down. “The...

    In what may be deemed another non-solution from lawmakers on gun-control, some Florida students will now be required to use clear backpacks when on school grounds. Last week, Broward County public school superintendent Robert Runcie announced that the district planned to implement a “solution” to avoid gun violence and that, after Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s spring break ended, students would be required to use clear backpacks if they wanted to be admitted on school grounds. According to The Blaze, however, student David Hogg has spoken out about the requirement and argued that district officials’ “solution” is rather an infringement...
