    A 9th-grade assignment at a Mississippi high school is causing concern and disgust among parents. A mother recently posted her student's assignment to Facebook in a special group that was created for the growing discontent parents feel toward public school education — "Inappropriate Common Core Lessons." This particular assignment asked 14-year-old students to determine the identity of a fictional rapist based on sperm DNA.Not surprisingly, parents were not amused. The mother who posted the assignment reported that the teacher did not require the students to complete it — and parents were grateful for that — but she was still disturbed...

    Being a teacher means instilling a lifelong love of learning in students and providing them with the tools and support they need, and it also means advocating for students, public education, and our profession. The NEAs recent Black Student Leader Day was all about exposing aspiring educators to lobbying as well as grassroots organizing for racial and social justice. This kind of outreach to aspiring African American teachers is essential at a time when the number of black teachers is declining.

    Gay rights groups told a California state commission Wednesday that they object to several of the textbooks that could be recommended for use in schools, saying the books dont include enough information about the contributions of LGBT Americans. The state Department of Education is preparing to update textbook recommendations for the first time since California became the first state to require teaching about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. A coalition of LGBT rights groups said the books should not merely include a token reference to San Francisco civil rights icon Harvey Milk but integrate the contributions...

    Ironically the radical left protests pumping hormones into cattle and poultry, yet they applaud when its done to a child Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.G.K. Chesterson Concerned parents of school-aged children know that sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists are destroying our public schools and universities. But Charter schools were thought to be safe from these dark ideological radicals. Sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists believe that there are no differences between men and women, and that male and female are merely social constructs.

    For the first time in Harvard Universitys history, the majority of students accepted into the incoming freshman class are not white, a milestone for an institution that prides itself on educating future presidents, CEOs, and world leaders. But Harvards push to broaden the diversity of its student ranks comes as the Trump administration intensifies its focus on affirmative action policies and suggests it will investigate how colleges shape the racial makeup of their campuses. The US Justice Department is preparing to redirect resources from its civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to...

    Tenth Grade Oakland Tech High English teacher Livier Perez invited BAMN, a revolutionary communist group, to speak to her 10th grade students at Oakland Technical High School, Oakland,California. BAMN is a violent Antifa group. The lecturers were recruiters, handing out flyers and encouraging the students to commit acts of violence. At the same time, they brainwashed them with lies. At one point, a student asks, so we should just have open borders and let everyone walk through? The BAMN recruiter responds, Yes, this is whats best for the economy and everyone deserves free healthcare. If this is what is going...

    Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly. Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and '50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government was rampant. The bill now goes to the Senate. It would eliminate part of the law that allows public employees to be fired for being a member of the Communist Party.

Langston Hughes Academy hosts an annual sex-ed class by Youth Services of Tulsa. When Miracle Foster's daughter wanted to learn more, she allowed her to visit the clinic.

    The father of a sixth-grade student from Paulo Intermediate School in Staten Island was outraged to see his 11-year-old daughter's assignment turned political. The student's English teacher is under fire after slipping an anti-Trump question into the girl's homework. The homework sheet contained a fill-in-the-blank portion where students were asked to provide vocabulary terms from a box of words for sentences about Donald Trump and Barack Obama. The lines read: 'President Trump speaks in a very superior and _________ manner insulting many people. He needs to be more __________ so that the American people respect and admire him.'

    Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of whats been labeled toxic masculinity. Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today. On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a hyper-masculinized sporting culture, acts of domestic terrorism and much more. For example, a class at Dartmouth College this semester, The Orlando Syllabus, identifies so-called toxic masculinity as playing a role in the mass murder spree at a...

    A new guide released to teachers in Canada outlines ways that teachers can make classrooms more inclusive. In one such proposal, it is suggested that students be referred to comrades instead of boys and girls. A second idea encourages drag shows so that kids can study the performance of gender. The Alberta Teachers Association (ATA), the top union for teachers in Alberta, Canada released the 152-page document called, Prism Toolkit for Safe and Caring Discussions. The guide is meant to assist teachers in creating an LBGTQ-inclusive environment in the classroom. The guide is intended to create welcoming, caring, respectful and...

    A professor at Calvin College in Michigan wrote a column accusing his students and fellow faculty members of being white supremacists for failing to accept the notion of white privilege. The professor also says Calvin College itself and the entire state of Michigan only exist because of said white privilege. In late November, Calvin College endured a small scandal when swastikas and the words white power were found written on several cars using snow. Two students confessed to the deed, but their names, motivations and punishments havent been revealed, leaving open the possibility the stunt was a hoax or a...

Celebrations of Valentine’s Day and the other “dominant holidays” are ending at one St. Paul elementary school, according to a letter from the principal addressed to families. Principal Scott Masini of Bruce Vento Elementary School, whose student body is overwhelmingly nonwhite, explained in the letter that “my personal feeling is we need to find a way to honor and engage in holidays that are inclusive of our student population.” With Valentine’s Day a little more than two weeks away, Masini noted, “I have come to the...

    Author James Dawson has received backlash from parents for his guide to growing up LGBT, This Book Is Gay, claiming they no longer feel comfortable taking their children to the library if his book is on the shelves, reports The Guardian. In Wasilla, Alaska, after a 10-year-old boy picked up the book from the juvenile non-fiction section of the public library, his mother was "shocked to find it contained frank drawings and descriptions of gay sex acts inside". The mother launched an appeal after she was told by the local librarian that it was appropriately shelved, leading to dozens of...

    The day after the first Democratic presidential debate, Donald Trump called Bernie Sanders a maniac. "This socialist-slash-communist," Trump said to raucous cheers. "I call him a socialist-slash-communist, because that's what he is." Well, no. The terms "socialist" and "communist" are often confused, thanks in large part to the Cold War. Layer on top of that the nuance of the term "democratic socialist," which is how Sanders describes himself, and it's easy to see why people might generally be confused...

Bathrooms for children older than first grade will be altered in coming years, even outside bathrooms that have multiple stalls.Bass told the Chronicle, Theres no need...

    A stellar group of American historians and academics released a milestone open letter yesterday in protest of deleterious changes to the advanced placement U.S. history (APUSH) exam. The signatories are bold intellectual bulwarks against increasing progressive attacks in the classroom on America's unique ideals and institutions. Moms and dads in my adopted home state of Colorado have been mocked and demonized for helping to lead the fight against the anti-American changes to APUSH. But if there's any hope at all in salvaging local control over our kids' curriculum, it lies in the willingness of a broad coalition of educators and...
