    Today my son brought up that they're having a "Peace Day" "celebration" tomorrow at school with stations to do things at. Such as "painting rocks with peace signs" and origami (wanted to do "peace" sign but wouldn't work he thinks). I.e., looks like they're pushing the stupid UN idea and of course, the hippie norm.
  • The Curse of America’s Illogical School-Day Schedule

    The world does not revolve around you, teens are often told. Indeed it doesn’t, as they are reminded every school-day morning when disabling their alarms. The average start time for public high schools, 7:59, requires teens to get up earlier than is ideal for their biological clocks, meaning many teens disrupt their natural sleep patterns every school day. The world, apparently, does not revolve around parents either. Their lives also tend to be mismatched with school-day schedules, which usually end a good two hours before the typical American workday does. As Kara Voght recently wrote in The Atlantic, that leaves...

According to Johnson, 2018-19 will be the first year that the district has at least one "all-gender" restroom in each school building.

    Ryan T. Anderson, author of When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment, spoke yesterday at the T.C. Williams School of Law. Anderson was invited by the Federalist Society, a “conservative and libertarian” group of law students, to speak on the legal matters of his book. Anderson's invitation incited protests from both students and faculty. Law school dean Wendy Perdue emailed law students defending Anderson’s talk. “As an academic institution, we’re committed to open and robust discussion, and I note that, consistent with these principles, the students who invited this speaker have also invited a faculty member to respond...

    I would be in trouble if I was still of school age as I overslept this morning. No particular reason, wasn’t up particularly late, didn’t sleep any worse than usual, just protesting the end of summer I guess. Apparently I’m still at step one of grieving the end of summer: denial.I will eventually move on through the other 4 stages, sometime around Thanksgiving, but for now I will remain in denial. That should be easy as it’s supposed to hit the mid-90’s today with the heat index topping 100. Unfortunately it’s also the first day of school around here which...

    Lawmakers in California passed a bill Friday mandating that school start times for middle- and high-school students begin at 8:30 a.m., defying the wishes of school boards in the state as well as a local teachers' union. The Sacramento Bee reported late Friday that lawmakers had passed a bill mandating that the start of classes be delayed until 8:30 a.m., with the exception of before school or "zero period" classes, which may still begin before that time. The bill came despite objections from both the California Teachers Association and the California School Boards Association, according to the news outlet. It...

    I brought my daughter from 10,000 miles away to be educated in the USA. My prime goal is to have her speak like an American. Today was her first day of Kindergarten, the school assembled all the students in the courtyard. They recited the Lord's Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance. I am starting to believe I made the correct decision. Of course, it is not a public school.

    EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Tech support at the East Baton Rouge Parish School System (EBRPSS) is scrambling to get a school bus tracking app online in time for the start of school. Students return on Thursday. Leaders cannot confirm when the app will be ready. Some 600 bright yellow school buses are ready to roll across the parish. They were all updated last school year with GPS trackers. Chief of Student Support Services Gary Reese says it helps system leaders keep drivers on time and accountable. "The GPS is functioning. We see every bus," Reese said.

    A Roman Catholic high school will shed the name of Washington's archbishop after he was cited in a sweeping grand jury report as having allowed priests accused of sexually abusing children to be reassigned or reinstated while he was Pittsburgh's bishop. The Diocese of Pittsburgh said Wednesday that Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl made the request to remove his name from Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School, and that school and diocese officials accepted it. The sign out front of the suburban Pittsburgh school was discovered vandalized Monday, with red spray paint obscuring Wuerl's name as some conservative Catholics called for...

    Can Science Study Demonology? August 12, 2018 | David F. Coppedge One cannot make predictions about what a mind will do. Secular scientists mock belief in angels and demons, but they have their own occult beliefs. Science cannot study what it doesn’t believe is real. Secular cosmologists believe dark matter and dark energy are real, but cannot see them. They believe angels and demons are unreal, but then have to account for things that defy natural explanations. Let’s see how they do. The Demon of School Shootings Nikolas Cruz, the suspect accused of killing 17 in the Parkland school shooting...

    Last week I was on vacation when news broke about “LeBron James’s school” opening in Akron, Ohio. So I wasn’t on social media or watching much television. I did see that CNN sent Don Lemon for a sit-down interview with LeBron and ESPN sent Rachel Nichols for one and even the Wall Street Journal had a piece this morning about how amazing LeBron James is for paying for a school. Essentially every major media organization, and many of their employees, fell all over themselves to praise LeBron James as Mahatma Gandhi in sneakers. So call me crazy, but I assumed...
