    A British aid worker was killed Friday in a U.N. compound in the West Bank during a gunbattle between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen — the first senior U.N. official to die in over two years of fighting. The United Nations accused Israeli soldiers of preventing an ambulance from immediately reaching Iain Hook, a senior manager for UNRWA, the U.N. agency that helps Palestinian refugees. The Israeli army said he was evacuated from the U.N. compound in the Jenin refugee camp as soon as possible. The death occurred hours after Israel reoccupied the West Bank town of Bethlehem for the...

    Parents, only YOU can set your children free from classroom indoctrination When little school kids talk about what they are learning in class, it’s no longer about anything to do concerning the ‘Three Rs’, it’s about the Politics of Inclusion, which they learn through indoctrination. Self-acclaimed Patron Saint of Tolerance and Diversity Jessi Cruickshank leads children in this CBC video in a “rah!” “rah!” for Happy Pride Month, which according to Cruickshank, viewers “loved”.

    Parents, create ‘Havens at Home’ for all your school aged children. They are no longer being taught at school, but only brainwashed by the surrealistic politics of the progressives. It’s time to kick Progressive Politics 101 out to the curb, into the gutter where it truly belongs. Progressive Politics 101 is no longer a bunch of political bigwigs sitting around Congress deciding how the lives of the citizenry should be lived. PP 101’s taken over front row centre as the dominating factor in the NEWS of the day, which, in reality, is nothing more than Hollywood style entertainment.
  • Hitler's Mein Kampf a surprise entry in Italian schoolkids' top books list

    12/08/2016 7:18:13 PM PST · by Olog-hai · 23 replies ^ | 8 December 2016 11:08 CET+01:00
    A survey launched by Italy’s Ministry for Education to promote reading and discover which books are most beloved by schoolchildren has proved the enduring popularity of classic tales. But in ten schools, an unwelcome entry made the top ten. Several secondary schools included Mein Kampf, the manifesto of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, in their top ten lists. Partly autobiographical, Mein Kampf — which means “My Struggle” — outlines Hitler’s ideology that formed the basis for Nazism. Written in 1924, it details his anti-Semitism which led to the Holocaust in which about six million Jews were murdered at the hands of...

    The Obama administration is now trying to outlaw single-sex classrooms, a practice that has been growing as parents and teachers see its good results. The Obama administration is discouraging that option in conformity with demands by the feminists who believe in the interchangeability of the genders and insist that schools forbid any deviation from their peculiar belief that there is no difference between male and female. The Minnesota State High School League, which controls policy for all extracurricular activities in all schools, public and private, voted 18 to 1 to outlaw recognition of all sex differences in high-school sports. The...

    The children of America have gone back to school. And, in nearly every household, there is at least one person who is standing over the kitchen sink in tears, wondering where the years have gone. I understand. Every year at this time, I remember a wonderful essay I heard on NPR the summer before The Lad first went to college. A woman talked about the day she sent her daughter to kindergarten for her first day of school. "My husband told me not to cry," she wrote, "because tomorrow she would still be in kindergarten." "But, he was wrong," the...

    George Leef, director of research for the North Carolina-based John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy, authored a Forbes op-ed article titled "Obama Administration Takes Groupthink To Absurd Lengths." The subtitle is "School Discipline Rates Must Be 'Proportionate.'" ( Let's examine some of the absurdity of the Obama administration's take on student discipline. Last January, the departments of Justice and Education published a "guidance" letter describing how schools can meet their obligations under federal law to administer student discipline without discriminating on the basis of race, color or national origin. Its underlying threat is that if federal bureaucrats learn...

    One of the highlights of my summer experience was the 50th reunion of my graduating class from St. Brigid elementary school on Long Island. Back in 1963, 60 children sat in a small classroom hoping for big things in the future. We had spent eight years together, but now high school beckoned, and all of our lives would change dramatically. Back then, America was a far different place than it is today. John F. Kennedy was president but had fewer than six months to live. The Beatles were just emerging. Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" was scaring everybody in the movie...

    More than 1,000 children suspected of under-age drinking were arrested in Kenya's capital Nairobi over the weekend, police say. Bars and clubs were raided after complaints that they had become crowded with schoolchildren during a three-week teachers' strike. Most of the children were later released because there were not enough cells to hold them, police said.....

    Not so long ago in this republic, most parents of school-age children would frequently visit grocery stores where they would use their own money to buy things like peanut butter and jelly, and bologna and cheese to make lunches for their kids to haul to school in brown paper bags. It was an American tradition. Now, like other great things about America, brown-bag lunches are being driven to extinction by politicians seeking inordinate government control over our lives. In fiscal year 1969 (which started in 1968), there were approximately 47,906,000 American children enrolled in elementary and high schools,

    It was a big week for John Besh, even by his eventful standards.... Apparently, several attendees of the “workshop” took Besh to task for lecturing about healthy eating on one hand while serving high calorie food at his restaurants on the other. “I went on to address a complex issue in very simple terms only to only be heckled by those that feel we can regulate restaurants to the point that our children will be happy and healthy,” Besh writes in his blog, which appears on “In response to these suggestions, I pointed to a variety of other options...

Amid the resulting controversy, Principal Sara Stone is defending the initiative, claiming that it is in line with what parents want:

    Primary schoolchildren filmed singing a song praising President Obama are at the centre of a storm of controversy in the U.S. after the video was posted on the internet. Right wing critics blasted the school for promoting politics in the classroom. The video shows more than a dozen children dancing and singing a song about the president, quoting from his speeches and campaign slogans. The chorus includes the chant ‘Mmm, mmm, mm! Barack Hussein Obama.’ One verse says: ‘He said that all must lend a hand. To make this country strong again.’ Another goes: ‘He said we must be clear...

    I got attacked by the Village Voice today for expressing my rather nasty response to the ObamaDay speech to schoolchildren and the accompanying ideological White House-dictated Department of Education lesson plans for kids (e.g., "Write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals"). I don't particularly mind being attacked by the Village Voice. I mean, at least they spelled my name right, as they say. If anything, what bothers me is the smarmy, "They're unhinged...

    President Barack Obama and the U. S. Department of Education’s plan to address school children nationwide in the classroom has sparked an incredible amount of impassioned controversy and sent those who support the President’s classroom invasion to the internet scrambling to find examples of Republican’s who may have committed the same onerous act. The presumptive reason for the frenzy being the ability for Obama’s supporters to say, “You did it now we can, too” or “Hey, it was okay then, but it’s not now”, or look “Two wrongs do make a right.” Which will most certainly be followed by cries...
