    he Left is abusing American high school education in its struggle to gain and retain political power. We only found out about this incident by accident. How many more? Shortly after President Trump’s inauguration, a group of public school history teachers in the posh Boston suburb of Newton pledged to reject the “call for objectivity” in the classroom, bully conservative students for their beliefs, and serve as “liberal propagandist[s]” for the cause of social justice. This informal pact was made in an exchange of emails among history teachers at Newton North High School, part of a very rich but academically...

    The University of Minnesota is considering a policy to discipline students or professors who refuse to call someone by their preferred gender pronoun, with penalties that could include being fired or expelled. The draft policy under review may change, but as of now it states that university members and units are expected to use the names, gender identities and pronouns specified to them by university members, except as legally required. When someone does not go along with a person whose biological sex does not match their preferred gender such as refusing to call a biological man a woman ...

    Professors at the University of Wyoming say the schools new cowboy slogan promotes white heterosexual masculinity. Expanding upon the University of Wyomings Cowboy mascot, the school recently adopted a new slogan The World Needs More Cowboys. But some professors are up in arms over the choice, claiming that it promotes white heterosexual masculinity. Christine Porter, associate professor of kinesiology and health at the university, is leading the charge against the new slogan. The history of cowboys, of course, is much more diverse than that racially, and presumably also for sexual orientation, Porter said in a comment. But the image...

    A federal judge has concluded that the Constitution doesn't require schools to promote students literacy. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ What to do when a school is infested with vermin, when textbooks are outdated, when students cant even read? Perhaps the answer is sue the government. Thats what seven students in Detroit have done. Their class-action suit filed against the state of Michigan asserts that education is a basic right, and that they have been denied it. Usually, such education-equity cases wend their way through state courts, as all 50 state constitutions mandate public-education systems, while the countrys guiding document doesnt even include the...

    With more and more people going to more and more colleges than ever before, and more and more money being spent on education, scientists recently reported a discouraging statistic: since 1975, IQ levels have been falling consistently. The steady decline in math and science scores is especially troubling. They dont know why this is happening, but I think we do. Maybe they ought to take a look at whats being taught in some of these colleges. And in the workplace, too. Netflix employees last week got a new set of rules designed to do away with sexual harassment. Its #MeToo...

    The Fairfax County School Board voted unanimously on Thursday to approve updated language in its sex education curriculum that is more inclusive to LGBTQ and transgender people. The board brought in a special panel that recommended changing the term biological sex to sex assigned at birth, which the panel said aligns with recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychological Association and the American College of Physicians. The board also changed sex education policies to provide more information to female students regarding contraception, as well as education on pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, for male students. However, the new...

Any comment on his statement should come from him. Gabriele declined to comment when reached, but he described himself in a tweetstorm as a white dude with tenure who doesnt give a s***...

Students at the Olympia, Washington-based public school have organized a three-day Day of Absence observance that includes a mix of events on and off campus. Some gatherings are advertised as open to all skin colors and others ask that only POC, or People of Color, attend. A poster hung at the school obtained...

Reed College caved to student protesters in April after they demanded that white authors be removed from the colleges Humanities 110 course. Now, the course will focus primarily on ancient Mediterranean authors. Reed College professors have responded with confusion at the allegation that the Humanities 110 course is too white. The idea that Hum 110 is a white course is very strange to me, Jay Dickson, a professor of English, recently said in a comment to...

    A long-awaited report on free speech protections at the University of California, Berkeley, blames hard to defend conservative speakers for inciting left-wing students to violence. A commission of Berkeley faculty, students formed in 2017 after violent and costly student protests called its commitment to free speech into question. Their months long study of the issue resulted in the conclusion that ultra-conservative rhetoric by the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter only exists to advance a facile narrative that universities are not tolerant of conservative speech. Contrary to a currently popular narrative, Berkeley remains a tolerant campus, the report says,...
