In their informative book Crimes of the Educators, Sam Blumenfeld and Alex Newman noted, on page 190 that “In John Dewey’s 1898 plan to dumb down America, he wrote, ‘Change must come gradually. To force it unduly would compromise its final success by favoring a violent reaction.’” Continue reading
The sex and gender revolutionaries have officially taken over the Austin Independent School District without firing a single shot.
In spite of overwhelming opposition from parents and pastors, the district’s trustees voted early Tuesday morning to implement a pornographic sex-education policy that includes instruction on anal sex and how to place a condom on an erect penis.
The father of a fifth-grader demanded to know who gave the school district the right to teach his child how to have anal and oral sex.
“Who gave you the right, Austin ISD? You have overstepped,” the rightfully frustrated dad said.
The radical sex-education policy will provide graphic instruction on gender identity and mandated support of the LGBT movement.
Students in grade school and middle school will also be taught how to get an abortion or obtain birth-control pills without parental permission or consent. Continue reading
I was born in Elkhorn, Wisconsin on February 26, 1948 at Walworth Memorial Hospital. So, what does this have to do with Education? Nothing more than a Memorial.
I have a small history due to family interaction with Elgin, Illinois – the basis for our posting today – my great-uncle David Samuel Cole (a renowned educator from Elgin, Illinois) and his wife, Edith (who with her own twisted sense of humor, had a coal black Cocker Spaniel named, Tarbaby). I knew them well – but THIS is not our story today… Continue reading
Before the War of Northern Aggression public schools as we have them today did not exist in the South. Mostly, the Southern States had the good sense to leave education where it belonged–in the hands of parents. After the War, public schools were forced upon the defeated South so that the ascendancy of the Radical Republican Deep State of that day could be pushed down the throats of Southern folks so that their children would be taught Yankee/Marxist propaganda passing as education. Continue reading
A decade after ‘The Dumbest Generation‘ was published, there is still much reason for hand-wringing about the future of our children and nation. We must take responsibility if we want to turn the tide. Continue reading
The fact that socialists are openly running for public office in America — that socialists actually hold public office in Congress — should serve as enough wakeup call that the nation’s moral and political compasses are skewed, in dire need of correcting.
That it doesn’t only screams this: America’s public school systems have become utter failures.
California is about to implement new abortion and homosexuality-promoting sex education lessons, and one school district has told parents they have no choice but to expose their children to them.
California enacted the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015, but only now are its controversial provisions starting to take effect in classrooms. Under the auspices of health, the law says it will equip students to develop “healthy attitudes” on “gender [and] sexual orientation,” among other things. It also says it will inform students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods,” and facilitate “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” Continue reading
The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to review the case of a high school student in Maryland who, despite threats of receiving a failing grade, refused to deny her faith by making a written profession of the Muslim conversion prayer.
Caleigh Wood, a Christian 11th-grade public school student in Maryland, was also forced to view a series of PowerPoint slides that stated, among other things, most Muslims’ faith is stronger than that of the average Christian. Continue reading
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the radical union that reaches into tens of thousands of classrooms, is pushing saturation indoctrination on race, “racism,” “racial identity,” “bias,” “prejudice,” “discrimination,” “hate,” “white supremacy,” and, of course, “equity,” “tolerance” and “diversity.”
As American students at all grade levels fall further and further behind in all academic areas, the 1.7 million-member union is telling its teachers that they must focus not on helping their students learn the basic subject matter and academic skills that will enable them to be productive, prosperous, self-supporting citizens, but that teachers must instead become non-stop agitators for “racial justice” and fulltime race psychologists/sociologists — both inside and outside the classroom. Continue reading
Ever since the forlorn days of John Dewey, leftists have been feverishly working to politically destroy the United States of America. Mr. Dewey and his like minded followers understood, in order to change the United States into a lesser nation under international dominance, Americans would have to be weened off of the principles that made her great. So, the gradual turning away from solid school education toward globalist-oriented indoctrination began. The evil father of the indoctrination system of government schools producing misguided fools began in earnest in the later half of the nineteenth century. Continue reading
If you need an accurate update on some of the madness at the nation’s institutions of higher learning, check out Minding the Campus, a nonprofit independent organization. John Leo, its editor in chief, says that the organization’s prime mission is dedicated to the revival of intellectual pluralism and the best traditions of liberal education at America’s colleges and universities. Leo’s most recent compilation of campus madness leaves one nearly breathless. Continue reading
Social Justice Ideology in Education
Conservatives have often noted the leftist bias in education. For example, California Democrats pushed for a mandatory ethnic studies course in high school. This course would mention racial oppression, and make white students examine their ‘privilege’. It also suggests that for an engagement project, students should promote voting rights for undocumented immigrants. Continue reading
THIS is far too important to ignore… Remember – you DO have choices!
One plus one may equal two, but if the student says three, you better not correct them, oppressor!
Math, in Seattle schools, will become a social justice course. But that’s not all. The U.S. government will be posited as a racist institution that must be destroyed. If this is taught to students, it’s indoctrination at its most destructive.
An Ethnic Studies Advisory Committee (ESAC), under the Seattle Public Schools Superintendent, published a preliminary Math Ethnic Studies framework document populated by district representatives that explains math as a racist study used to oppress students — and if you correct a student’s faulty math logic, you’re guilty. Continue reading
A high school in North Carolina is under fire for an assignment entitled “Diversity Inventory” that left students crying and parents outraged. Heritage High School English teacher Melissa Wilson gave out an assignment to her class last week that asked them to categorize themselves, their parents, their doctor, friends, and more by race, class, sexuality, and religion, among other things.
Students reported that Wilson made them go stand by a sign on the wall that correlated with their sexuality. One student called a parent during the exercise to express her discomfort with it. Another student broke down crying. North Carolina Values Coalition reports.
Students were also asked to stand up, and walk towards posters in different areas of the room that correlated with their sexual identities. Students were traumatized. Some were even brought to tears. Continue reading
Over four hundred teachers underwent mandatory training in Michigan recently that exalted Islam but denigrated Christianity, America, and of course, white males. The training leads people to believe Islam is the peaceful, one true religion while Christianity is a man-made, false religion. Continue reading
One of the basic conditions for the victory of socialism is the arming of the workers and the disarming of the bourgeoisie (the middle class). A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie. ~ Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Let me first say that my prayers and thoughts for healing are sent to all families who have lost family members due to a horrific killing. Losing a family member unexpectedly is something we should never have to experience. It is a sad time in America.
Hate speech, racism, anger, are all emotional traits that must be learned. Yes that is right, Hate is an emotion that must be LEARNED. You have to be taught to hate. Did you ever meet a baby right out of the womb who said I am a racist? Were their first words, “I hate Jews, Christians, Blacks, Muslims, conservatives, environmentalists, etc.” I don’t think so. Why is picking up a gun or knife and killing people done by some almost without thought? Because somewhere in their lives, they were taught to hate. Now they are acting out what they have been taught. Mental illness for the most part has nothing to do with their actions. It is their programming. The biggest question is where is the programming coming from? Continue reading
