    El Paso, Texas – An 11 year old Texas middle school student was hit and killed today during the time of the National Walkout when he tried to cross the freeway – Loop 375 in northeast El Paso. Though he was not actually participating in the walkout, he and another group of 12-15 students jumped the wall and left the campus during the walkout. It was a fatal mistake. The students from Parkland Middle School took advantage of the National Walkout Day today to sneak off and do their own thing. Though a staff member was posted at the front...

    A stripper was called to a job in northwest Austin, but much to her surprise it was at a middle school.A Round Rock Independent School District spokesperson says a student called the “entertainer” and paid for her by using his parent’s credit card. When she showed up the address on School House Lane Wednesday around 11:30 a.m., she quickly realized it was Grisham Middle School and called the front office, reporting the prank. The woman did not enter the school, a district spokesperson said. The student was identified and is facing disciplinary action “to the full extent possible,” the spokesperson...

    A female student who told school administrators she'd been sexually assaulted by a teacher was suspended and then forced to apologize to the accused perpetrator and hug him, according to an indictment against three Colorado school officials handed down Wednesday. Principal David Gonzales, Vice Principal AJ MacIntosh and counselor Cheryl Somers-Wegienka of Prairie Middle School in Aurora, Colo. were named in the indictments, FOX31 Denver reported. The Cherry Creek School District informed parents MacIntosh and Gonzales were placed on administrative leave “pending the outcome of the court proceedings.” Somers-Wegienka stopped working at the school before the indictment. The indictment stems...

    'Mom, it's like instead of them telling us how to not do it, it's like they gave us a road map'! Parents are outraged after discovering their children were being taught about “mutual masturbation” and “anal sex” in their Oklahoma public middle school. Students in Jay, Oklahoma, were given sex-ed handouts from Lighthouse Pregnancy Center teaching that there are “four types of sex.” The graphic sex lesson handouts were culled from a program called “Shape, Sexual Health Awareness, Prevention and Education.” Comprehensive Sex Education came to Jay Middle School in Oklahoma last week. https://t.co/4eAzPeyG1w pic.twitter.com/Ps3yPJU5lS ​ ​ — ShannonJoy (@ShannonJoyRadio)...

    A Berkeley middle school teacher who was accused of instigating a violent clash with neo-Nazis in Sacramento this summer is back at it, recorded in a deranged rant at a Berkeley protest against Milo Yiannopoulos shortly before violence erupted Wednesday. Yvette Felarca, a social studies teacher at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, attended a protest against Yiannopoulos’ scheduled speech at the University of California Berkeley Wednesday, when she spoke out against the Breitbart senior editor’s controversial views and called on protesters to prevent him from speaking “by any means necessary.” In a video posted to YouTube on Thursday, Felarca...

    Who would have thought a butter knife could become the center of a school controversy? Last month, officials at Silver Trail Middle School near Miami, Florida, suspended an 11-year-old honors student for violating a county policy strictly prohibiting weapons on campus. The girl’s weapon of choice: a butter knife fit for a toddler. To highlight the dangers of having this dull knife on campus, the police noted to state prosecutors that the girl used it to cut a peach. Such is the folly of overcriminalization: Every minor mishap gets crammed into the criminal justice system when it could be easily resolved...

    Some middle school students in Georgia got a lesson in slang from the streets this week and some parents are not pleased. WSAV-TV is reporting a class at Godley Station School got quizzed on words like “punked,” “popo,” “true dat” and “bling bling.” A parent posted the quiz online and now many are questioning what arrived on the desks of some Savannah-Chatham students this week. Labeled as “Geography Jumpstart,” the instructions of the worksheet called for the middle school class to define words like “yo,” “dog,” “punked,” “popo,” “sportin’” and “bling-bling” based on the context of sentences provided. …

    Students at Myron L. Powell Elementary School in Cedarville, N.J. aren’t just learning about reading, writing and arithmetic this fall. They’re also getting homework assignments with hypothetical scenarios about going to “an awesome party,” getting wasted, having sex with random people they don’t know and and ending up with a nasty case of genital herpes.

    A grimly accurate headline, I’m afraid. The good news is that most of the community seems to reject this nonsense for what it is: Racialized, politically-correct social engineering run amok. The bad news is that the administration is standing by its decisions, effectively arguing that ‘diversity’ concerns are simply too serious to be subordinated to such quaint notions as representative democracy. Madness: When Everett held its election three days later, its principal promptly refused to release the results, saying she was concerned that the winners were not diverse enough. While she would ultimately relent and release the results, her...

    Recently, ION Television cited Oman Frame in their "Everyday Heroes" segment for his work on race, gender, and class.  Those last three words caught my attention, since white privilege is a constant meme in the academic world.  Frame teaches 7th and 8th grade in southwest Atlanta.  He is a charismatic man who bonds easily with students of either race.  Martha Caldwell also works with Oman Frame.  She wrote "Inquiry into identity: Teaching critical thinking through a study of race, class, and gender."  Comments about their workshops for middle school students include this from a parent: To say that these...

Gaia Democratic School director Starri Hedges took about a dozen middle- and high-school-aged students to the Smitten Kitten last week. Hedges told the Star Tribune that she wanted to provide a safe and welcoming environment for students to learn about human sexual behavior.

    MONESSEN, Pa. (AP) - Parents in a Pennsylvania school district are turning 50 shades of red over word search puzzles given to middle school students based on an erotic novel and movie. The students in Monessen were given puzzles based on "Fifty Shades of Grey" that contained terms including "spanking," ''submissive," ''leather cuffs" and "bondage." Other words on the list were more explicit. Parent James Carter complained about it at Tuesday night's school board meeting, saying he tried to question the school's principal and dean of students, but they refused to talk when he insisted on recording their conversation.

    At some point in recent months Planned Parenthood thought to add an advisory to its “Getting Kinky – BDSM 101″ post, likely after conservative news sources drew attention to it in late February. A video from that post was featured in a trailer today by Live Action, promoting its new investigation into PP’s dangerous practice of counseling kids on how to engage in torture sex. Here’s how the site looks today, with the responsible looking disclaimer… As Live Action noted, “[T]his is an attempt to cover tracks – the tone, structure, and overall character of the video make it clear...

    The news this week of two arrests in the case of a 12-year-old suicide is a reminder of how middle school drama can go awry. When personality clashes move from misunderstanding and conflict to tormenting and bullying, and when there appears to be no safe place -- terrible events can occur. Last month, 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick, of Winter Haven, Florida, jumped to her death from the top of an abandoned concrete plant. The two arrests this past weekend included a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old who were charged with aggravated stalking. Posts online from the 14-year-old's Facebook account led Grady...

A camel walks through a workplace asking people what day it is. He’s super excited about it being hump day. Funny, right? Teachers at least one Connecticut middle school aren’t fans, because the kids are screaming “HUMP DAY” in the halls, students told HLN affiliate WFSB. They say it’s distracting, and they want it to stop. …

    Oregon school cancels zombie survival classes, ensures students will be eaten Armand Larive Middle School had what is perhaps the greatest junior high social studies class ever: Zombie Survival Skills. But the killjoy parents and administrators put the kibosh on the post-apocalyptic class, feeling that undead studies were not appropriate for growing minds. The East Oregonian reported on Rich Harshberger's zombie survival classes at Armand Larive earlier this week, a class that focused largely on real-world survival skills and also had a reading and writing component. Apparently, parents were a bit surprised to learn the school was teaching a class...
