    MONTCLAIR, NJ — The Montclair Public School District is rolling out a new initiative this year: "all-gender restrooms" in each building. Superintendent Kendra Johnson alerted local parents and guardians about the restroom changes as part of a "Welcome Back" letter sent at the beginning of the school year. According to Johnson, 2018-19 will be the first year that the district has at least one "all-gender" restroom in each school building.

The Memorandum on Student Religious Speech at Athletic Events countered letters sent by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation ("FFRF") to several Alabama public schools claiming that prayer at school athletic events is unconstitutional...

    Santa Fe school board President Steven Carrillo made an unsuccessful final attempt to win approval for the idea of hiring armed officers for the district’s two high schools this school year. During Tuesday’s board meeting, he couldn’t even sway the other four members to support the idea of holding a special study session to discuss the issue, let alone get them to agree to commit to hiring such guards, commonly known as school resource officers or SROs, with the goal of better protecting students against shooters on campus. “I’m not ready to entertain SROs,” board member Maureen Cashmon told Carrillo....

    Students at an Ohio middle school were asked to decide who they would leave behind if the world was about to end, using age, religion and other descriptions as markers for their decisions. The assignment sparked widespread uproar. “Whom to Leave Behind” asked students at Roberts Middle School in Cuyahoga Falls to choose eight out of 12 people to put into a space ship and take to a different planet because the world was ending, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. Choices included a homosexual pro athlete, a militant African-American medical student and a female movie star who was a victim...

    No Red Rover? Physical education teachers in Alabama should avoid such recess staples as tag, dodgeball and Duck, Duck Goose due to the games' lack of physical stimulation and high chance of embarrassment for students, according to a guidance document from the Alabama State Department of Education. AUM share sets off social media debate The documented, first posted two-years ago but updated this week, was shared Tuesday by the Auburn University at Montgomery Physical Education Program and quickly spread on social media. The document has since been removed from the ALSDE website, however, much of it remains in the Alabama...
  • Boy, 10, punished for calling teacher 'ma'am', parents say

    TARBORO, N.C. (KLFY) -- Parents of a fifth grader are concerned after their child was punished for referring to his teacher as "ma'am." Teretha Wilson said she noticed something was wrong Tuesday when her 10-year old son Tamarion got off the school bus from North East Carolina Preparatory School. "I asked him what happened. He said he got in trouble for saying 'yes ma'am'," explained Wilson. Confused by his response, Tamarion pulled out a sheet of paper with the word "ma'am" written on it four times per line on both sides. He says his teacher told him to write the...

    The de Blasio administration is guilting parents in ultra-liberal Park Slope into swallowing a radical public school “diversity plan” — suggesting that those who disagree with the scheme are akin to white supremacists in the Deep South. After a series of workshops and meetings over the summer, the city is poised to green-light a drastic revamping of District 15 middle-school admissions aimed at spurring racial and socioeconomic integration. Parents say they support diversity, but some are afraid of being called bigoted if they question or criticize the plan — which would eliminate all admission criteria based on academic achievement and...

    A lawsuit against a Pennsylvania school district will be filed later this month, if the district continues its refusal to allow parents to see a series of pro-LGBT videos that their children were forced to watch in April. In a June 22 letter to the East Penn School District, Liberty Counsel attorney Richard Mast said that Pennsylvania state law dictates that parents are entitled to all such curriculum information. Almost three thousand students at Emmaus High School were required to see the videos during the school district’s LGBT “Unity Week.” Students could not opt out, and not only were parents...

    'Why do teachers have to die protecting their students? Why can't we live protecting our students?' In the weeks and months since the school shootings in Parkland, Florida, and Santa Fe, Texas, the debate over whether teachers should be able to carry firearms in schools has received a great deal of attention. A number of states have allowed teachers to carry firearms in schools for years and provide some insight into how such programs work in practice and what motivates teachers who want to be armed. In Colorado, local school districts have the authority to but are not required to...

    Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos set off a furor over comments she made to members of Congress suggesting that schools should decide whether or not to report undocumented students and their families to federal immigration authorities. "I think that is — that is a school decision," DeVos said during her testimony before the House Education and Workforce Committee after Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., pressed her on the issue of undocumented students. "It's a local community decision and again I refer to the fact that we have laws and we also are compassionate and I urge this body to do its...

    The second comes from The Atlantic’s Emma Green. Detailing the findings of a survey conducted by her magazine and the Public Religion Research Institute, she notes that 61 percent of white working-class men view college as a “risky gamble.” Green’s report contained this explanation: “The enduring narrative of the American dream is that if you study and get a college education and work hard, you can get ahead,” said Robert P. Jones, the CEO of PRRI. “The survey shows that many white working-class Amer­icans, especially men, no longer see that path available to them. . . . It is this sense of economic fatalism,...

    Another school shooting, another young white male in custody, seemingly non-existent red flag warnings of such violence, such horror. One CBS reporter concluded his on-the-scene-account of the Santa Fe school carnage by saying, "Still no motive." But of course, there is a motive. Why are school shooters primarily young, white, public school students, quiet, seemingly unassuming, yet loaded with so much anger that they take to the one object of their anger-their public schools-their hurt and their misery? The violence of pressure cookers, Molotov cocktails a shotgun and a .38 revolver expressed by this most recent, white male shooter. Look...

But during the day, an assistant principal pulled her aside to point out an issue with her wardrobe — the fact that Coelho wasn’t wearing a bra. “It is not a requirement in the dress code at my school for me to wear a bra,” the student tweeted. “Stop blaming girls’s outfits for boys not being raised right to respect women.” She then posted a photo of herself in the shirt she wore to school, without a bra,...

    While much attention has been paid to his peers pushing for gun law reforms, a Ridgefield High School sophomore thinks his message is just as important. On Wednesday morning, Mario Giordano led about 100 students on a walkout in support of the Second Amendment. It was part of a national "Stand for the Second" event that saw marches in an estimated 40 states. The 10 a.m. walkout started at the high school and ended with a presentation at a nearby community center, where Giordano spoke. Other New Jersey walkouts occurred in Cherry Hill and Jersey City. “The Second Amendment requires...
