Carson: Feds should police colleges for ideological bias: "Ben Carson, who’s running a tight race for president and coming in consistently second against Donald Trump, told Glenn Beck on his televised TheBlaze broadcast the Department of Education’s mission ought to be shifted to include the monitoring of colleges for political bias.

See Spreading Islam through Public Schools

January 2016

CA schools pass weakened assessments: "Californians troubled by the public school drive toward statewide standardized testing now face a reformed — but weaker — system of assessment. ... At the federal level, Congress turned its back on No Child Left Behind, the Bush-era legislation that drew consistent fire from some Republicans and Democrats concerned that assessing student performance was becoming more formulaic and outcome-based than appropriate. The new law — known as the Every Student Succeeds Act — 'aims to take a more holistic approach to evaluating schools, using qualities beyond test scores,' the Los Angeles Times noted."  But what does it all mean?

(May be slow to open) Common Core: Your child is being taught to be an obedient globalist: "UN, Obama, and Gates are globalizing education via 'Common Core.'  ...the nationalization of American schools is actually just one component of a much broader global agenda being pushed by the Obama administration, the UN, Bill Gates, and others: the globalization of education. ...this week, an invitation-only conference hosted by... pro-Common Core ringleader Jeb Bush entitled 'Globalization of Higher Education' took place in Texas.

Common Core College and Career Standards: Big Fraud: "Common Core is a gigantic fraud! Does calling a Ford a 'Cadillac' make it a Cadillac? Common Core’s advocates claim the Standards are College and Career Ready. The Common Core Standards end in the middle of Algebra 2 with no Calculus or Trigonometry classes. Incoming freshmen students whose last high school math course was Algebra 2 have less than a 40% chance of earning any kind of four- year college degree. Common Core is anything but College Ready!" See Brainwashing in America

Warning to NH parents: Schools Will Now Mentally Evaluate Your Children: "We know that our schools are administering psychometric assessments without parental permission and currently ignoring the APA code of ethics....

Principal Backs Off Common Core Retaliation: "A high school principal is backtracking from her statements last week that incoming seniors would be punished for opting out of Common Core testing. ... In an e-mail to parents, Principal Foss had claimed that incoming seniors would not be able to participate in senior activities or receive parking and off-campus passes if their parents had opted them out of statewide testing this spring.

      "California law specifically gives parents the right to decline statewide testing for their students, and a high percentage of parents did so this year at Calabasas, due to the highly controversial implementation of new testing aligned to the Common Core State Standards."  See Christian families

July 2015


 (UK) Faith Schools Could Face Closure if They Don't Promote Gay Rights: "British faith schools are to be forced to teach equality and respect for gay rights or face closure.... The orders come following 40 snap inspections of faith schools, including Christian and Jewish schools, in the wake of the Trojan Horse plot in Birmingham in which radical Islamists were found to have infiltrated between four and eight schools to promote hard-line Salafist Islam. ... Sir Michael Wilshaw, chief inspector of schools, is expected to conclude from the reports that any school not preparing students for life in modern Britain...

Global ‘Gay’ Children and Gender–Free Restrooms: NEA Teachers Union More Extreme than Ever: "The National Education Association wrapped up another radical convention early in July.

     "Ethan was seen by a social worker.... no behavioral problem was found.

A Federal Jury Speaks, and Academic Freedom Wins: "....a federal jury found that the University of North Carolina–Wilmington (UNCW) violated the free speech rights of conservative Christian professor, Mike Adams. Specifically, the jury found that Dr. Adams’s First Amendment–protected speech was a 'substantial or motivating factor' in the defendants’ decision not to promote him to full professor....

      "Dr. Adams began his career at UNCW in 1993 as an outspoken atheist and liberal. During this period, he was widely praised in the university for his teaching and scholarship and achieved tenure in 1998 without any controversy. In 2000, however, shortly after visiting a mentally handicapped prisoner on death row in Texas — and being struck by the fact that this prisoner had read the entire Bible while he had not Dr. Adams read the Bible and experienced a religious conversion, becoming a Christian and, over time, a conservative as well....

      "As a conservative, Dr. Adams eventually began writing a column for Townhall.com that is often sharply critical of leftist excesses in universities nationwide, as well as in his own university.

      "The reaction within the university was furious...The chancellor also placed him under a brief, secret investigation at the request of an anarchist transgendered group to determine whether Dr. Adams was passing along 'transphobic' views to students.... So far Dr. Adams’s stand has led to a historic appeals-court ruling in favor of academic freedom and a historic jury verdict, but the case isn’t over." See The Power and Perversions of Laws

10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12. "Following are ten research evidenced reasons for this ban. 1.

     2. "Delayed Development.... One in three children now enter school developmentally delayed... 3. Epidemic Obesity.... 5.Mental Illness. Technology overuse is implicated as a causal factor in rising rates of child depression, anxiety, attachment disorder, attention deficit, autism, bipolar disorder, psychosis, and problematic child behavior....

Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Refuses to Protect Right of Calif. Public School Students to Wear American Flag T-Shirts to School, Rejects 1st Amend. Arguments: "In a blow to the rights of students to engage in peaceful, patriotic expression, a federal appeals court has ruled that California public school officials did not violate the First Amendment rights of several students who were ordered to cover up their patriotic apparel emblazoned with American flags or be sent home on the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo, allegedly out of a concern that it might offend Hispanic students.

     "AAlthough the appeals court acknowledged that other students were permitted to wear Mexican flag colors and symbols, it ruled that the school was allowed to forbid the American flag apparel out of concerns that it would cause disruption, even though no disruption had occurred."

8 Yr Old Autistic Boy Not Allowed to Read Bible during Free Time at School: "We’ve heard of teachers failing student’s reports because they wrote about God. We’ve heard of teachers throwing gifts for other students in the trash because they mentioned Jesus. We’ve heard of more teacher abuses of students involving religion, politics and guns. And in all of these cases, the teachers were wrong and violating the constitutional rights of the students....

     "Jessica Cross has an eight year old [autistic] son.... He takes his Bible to school and reads it during his free time, that is until recently. Cross found out that a teacher told her son that he wasn’t allowed to read his Bible at school.

Common Core Text Portrays Pedophilia as ‘Innocent,’ and ‘Tender’: "Child safety advocates are fighting to reform the federal government’s common core English curriculum after parents complained about graphic sexual material in assigned material."

Mother Wins Battle to Stop Graphic Sex-Ed Classes at Middle School: “'Safer sex curriculum' is a very inaccurate term for the salacious instructional fare promoted and taught by Planned Parenthood. ... these programs are all about sexually stimulating even very young students—teaching them, in embarrassing graphic detail, and in mixed gender groups, the fun of sexual foreplay and sexual intercourse while attempting to persuade them to use condoms....

Arne Duncan Mounts Strongest Defense Yet of Common Core Standards: "U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan mounted his strongest defense yet of the common-standards movement.... He called some of the claims opponents are making—that the standards and tests will lead to mind control, robots, and biometric brain mapping—just 'wacky.'....

    "Some of the hostility to Common Core also comes from critics who conflate standards with curriculum, assessments and accountability. They oppose mandated testing and they oppose using student achievement growth and gain as one of multiple measures to evaluate principals and teachers." See "Common Core" for a Global Community

A Monstrous Story for a Monstrous Curriculum: The Ugly Heart of Common Core: "Our school system has swallowed the Common Core curriculum whole. Why wouldn’t they? The federal system has said that it is 'voluntary, but 'voluntary' means that the district gets cut off from major federal funding if it does not adopt the standards...

     "...the U.S. Department of Education for the Race to the Top Program ... must commit to adopting a 'common set of K-12 standards' matching the description of the Common Core.... 'The Republican National Committee recognizes the CCSS for what it is — an inappropriate overreach to standardize and control the education of our children…”

Michigan GOP lawmaker suggests Common Core critics have been ‘poisoned’: "Michigan Republican Rep. Tim Kelly apparently thinks it’s more important to 'marginalize' Common Core critics than it is to create sound policy. ... Kelly has introduced a resolution to implement the national standards, and successfully postponed a hearing on whether or not to fund their implementation. 'I think with this resolution, we’ve marginalized, quite frankly, the anti-crowd into a very minute number,' Kelly told the Detroit News....

     "Kelly apparently has no interest in the concerns of parents and academics who say the standards are dumbing down education, or represent an unconstitutional federal intrusion into public education. He apparently has no respect for the Maryland parent who was arrested for simply questioning bureaucrats who were talking about the supposed virtues of the new national standards."

Classroom chaos? Critics blast new Common Core education standards: “It’s just now reaching their school districts and their children’s schools and they want to know, ‘What is this, and why is it being forced on us?’ said the Cato Institute’s Neil McCluskey.  

       "...the chaos has only just begun. Those states administered their own standardized tests aligned with Common Core, and the results were disastrous. ...Kentucky, which also implemented its own Common Core-aligned tests, experienced similar declines in scores. Other states are waiting until at least 2014-15 to implement Common Core tests that are still in development."

     "...the principal...decided to suspend the two boys...for the next nine months, and even recommended that the boys be 'expelled for a year' for possession, handling and use of a firearm.....This is the third incident of it’s kind in recent days..."

Gates Money and Common Core -- Part II: "Though CCSS promotes itself as 'state led'... all four major organizations responsible for CCSS from inception for its principal development -- the National Governors Association (NGA), the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), Achieve, and Student Achievement Partners -- have received in total $147.9 million from Bill Gates for a variety of purposes, $32.8 million of which is expressly earmarked to advance CCSS.

     "...other key education organizations have taken millions from Gates in order to promote CCSS, not the least of which are both national teachers' unions, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) ($5.4 million) and the National Education Association (NEA) ($4 million)."

Move Over, Obamacare. Here Comes Obamaschool: "What will really happen if the federal government completes its takeover of higher education pricing? The certain result will be even higher prices, which will then lead to calls for a complete federal takeover, just as advancing prices under Obamacare are now leading to admissions by Senator Reid and Congresswoman Pelosi that it was only intended to be a stepping stone to a 'single payer' system in which government in effect nationalizes all healthcare."

The Confused & Misguided Youth: (Thomas Sowell) “The problem isn’t that Johnny can’t read. The problem isn’t even that Johnny can’t think. The problem is that Johnny doesn’t know what thinking is; he confuses it with feeling.” ...And the culprits are the American public education, an ever growing lack of religious education, and the indifferent parenting that does not question what children learn or do not learn in school. Young people in any generation tend to be naïve, idealistic, and gullible; it is easy to sell them anything because they confuse feelings with rational thought. They are told so often and so early in life that they are special that they form a distorted view of themselves."


More TV watching as toddlers, more problems as kindergarteners: "The study found that every hourly increase in daily television viewing at 29 months of age is associated with diminished vocabulary and math skills, classroom engagement (which is largely determined by attention skills), victimization by classmates, and physical prowess at kindergarten..."
