    We’re so stupid that we find it abhorrent when a teacher pushes liberal propaganda on unsuspecting students. Via Daily Caller: A Virginia elementary school teacher told her students that “Republicans are stupid” and “they don’t care about anyone but wealthy people and businesses.” Kristin Martin said this to her 6th grade class as Republican voters were filing into the halls of Powell Elementary School in Fairfax County to vote on Super Tuesday. “It all started when this disabled kid came in and named all the Republicans candidates for Super Tuesday,” one student told The Daily Caller. “She [Martin] said to...

    Some teachers were working at poverty level. Others could be fired because they were pregnant and unmarried, or they were gay. And students were sitting on the floor without any desks. Those are some of the charges made by teachers’ union officials since Gov. Rick Snyder took office and transformed the face of public education in Michigan. But those charges and more were either untrue or highly unlikely to occur in what has turned into a two-year rhetoric campaign by teachers and the unions. Michigan Education Association Spokesman Doug Pratt told MLive that the MEA has been targeted by the...

    Oakland University in Michigan has denied the appeal of a student who was barred from campus, suspended for three semesters, and required to undergo "sensitivity" counseling for authoring a class assignment in which he stated that he found his instructors attractive. While the assignment specifically permitted students to write creatively about any topic, the university bizarrely classified his "Hot for Teacher" essay as "unlawful." Joseph Corlett came to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help. "Oakland University made up its own definition of the 'law' in order to punish a student for his creative writing," said FIRE...

Parents of students in the Pre-Kindergarten program at West Hoke Elementary School in Raeford got a letter from Assistant Superintendent Bob Barnes last week saying a substitute teacher would take over the preschool class until the “issue” is resolved.

Many believed it was just a matter of time before a school shooting reached Ohio. On Monday morning it happened. This just highlights the need to arm willing teachers to serve as the last line of defense of our children. While a lot remains unknown about Monday's shooting, had a willing and properly trained and armed teacher been present, this could have prevented multiple children from being shot. I don't know anyone who would argue against the notion...

    As a mother, the nutritional needs of her own son would always have been on her mind. But for one woman, teaching in a Chicago elementary school brought home just how important meals were for growing children, and how badly they were being let down. Sarah Wu, 34, a speech pathologist working in public schools in the city, began a blog in January 2010 in which she described the school lunch every day for a year. She secretly photographed each meal, and then described the taste and texture of each dish for her site, Fed Up With Lunch. In it,...

He’s got a master’s degree. He’s got an outstanding track record of helping his students make huge gains in reading and writing. In the last few years, he’s received three pink slips because...

    FORT WORTH, Texas, September 29, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The teacher responsible for suspending a student after he expressed opposition to homosexuality has been placed on administrative leave with pay.

The conversation, held during a class discussion on religious beliefs in Germany, arose when one student asked what Germans thought about homosexuality in relation to religion. Ary says the instructor “started yelling” upon...

    Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says” (1 Corinthians 14:34). “I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere. . .Let women learn in silence with all submission. And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression” (1 Timothy 2:8, 11-14). The clarity of the Bible is unambiguous regarding God’s...
