Texas Middle School Students Suspended for Two Days for Taking Confederate Flag Selfies

Seven middle school students have been suspended for two days for taking a picture of themselves with a Confederate flag.

Andrew Birdwell, who thinks his son was motivated to take the picture because the students are currently learning whatever version of Civil War history that school decides to teach its students, was told by school officials that his son did not say any "hateful language," so the suspension was due solely to taking the picture.

History is being warped and sanitized in our public schools to fit a politically correct agenda, cursing our nation's students to be dumbed down from being able to actually draw anything from its lessons.

“It was kind of tough for me to explain why he’s getting assignments from school with a Confederate flag on it, yet he can’t hold one,” Birdwell said.

Students protest: "SDSU thinks we are terrorists"

The flyers causing outrage were posted by the Horowitz Freedom Center. They list the names of SDSU students and faculty who supposedly allied themselves with Palestinian terrorists.

One of those individuals on the list was Tessa Wiley.

"I had people from my classes that did not know I was part of activism, and they were like, why is your name up there," she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Someone needs to sue the Horowitz Freedom Center for libel!

Saying 'vagina' got me fired, Battle Creek middle school teacher says

Vagina. It's a noun describing female anatomy that caused such outrage in the Michigan Legislature in 2012 that a legislator was blocked from speaking after using it.

Now, a substitute teacher says using it got her fired from a Battle Creek middle school after she said it in an art history lecture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because although the US is showering white-hot flaming death on innocent people in other countries, invading nations on the basis of lies, and torturing innocent people to death to find nuclear weapons that don't exist, we are not allowed to say bad words to prove we are a just and moral people!

U.S. high school seniors slip in math and show no improvement in reading

The nation’s high school seniors have shown no improvement in reading achievement and their math performance has slipped since 2013, according to the results of a test administered by the federal government last year.

The results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP, also show a longer-term stagnation in 12th-grade performance in U.S. public and private schools: Scores on the 2015 reading test have dropped five points since 1992, the earliest year with comparable scores, and are unchanged in math during the past decade.

“These numbers are not going the way we want,” said William J. Bushaw, executive director of the National Assessment Governing Board, an independent panel established by Congress to oversee NAEP policy. “We have to redouble our efforts to prepare our students.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the "Common Core" system of education has REALLY done its job, preventing kids from both learning and critical thinking.!!

Security Stops Middle Schoolers from Singing the National Anthem at 9/11 Memorial

This is the epitome of modern Orwellian America.

A group of 51 middle schoolers from North Carolina traveled all the way to the 9/11 memorial and decided to sing the national anthem.

They were stopped — from singing the national anthem at the 9/11 memorial — halfway through by 9/11 memorial security because, well, it seems they didn’t have the proper permit.

Censored, Surveilled, Watch Listed and Jailed: The Absurdity of Being a Citizen in the American Police State

snip: While this may sound like a riff on a bad joke, it’s a bad joke with “we the people” as the punchline. Yet it is no laughing matter that Americans are being jailed for growing orchids, feeding whales, collecting rainwater, and praying in their backyards. There is nothing humorous about Americans having their families terrorized by SWAT teams, their pets killed, their children shot, their homes trashed and their privacy shredded. And there’s really not much comic relief to be found when the citizenry is forced to pay their own government to jail, spy on, censor, terrorize and kill them.

Hellstorm at The Myrtle Beach International Film Festival

On a nice, warm Saturday afternoon a good crowd had gathered at Broadway Cinemas in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We were there to watch Hellstorm, a documentary by Kyle Hunt and Tom Goodrich, illustrating the horrific and oftentimes unimaginable treatment of the German people after World War II.

As well done as the film is, it is certainly not for the faint-hearted, but nonetheless it is still imperative for every person of European descent to see this for it gives us a glimpse of what could happen if the Jews have their way and do successfully implement their New World Order.

N-Georgia U student Pro-Abortion activists sinking ever lower

Students at the University of North Georgia reportedly laughed last week as they broke the heads off cookies depicting babies in the womb, which were a part of a pro-abortion display created by the campus atheist club.

Photos of the display posted online show containers of the cookies, some of them with their heads broken off, surrounded by signs that read “abortion should remain legal because…” Students wrote in their own reasons, such as “a woman controls her own body” and the grotesque “my v*gina is too pretty to let a fetus crawl out.”

Is it not enough that these children are being exterminated? Is it not enough that this industry of murder is attacking the most helpless in our society? But now, these wicked people, in a foolish gesture to impress their wicked friends are mocking their deaths.

University of Florida Holds First Brain-Powered Drone Race

The race works by fitting pilots with a Brain Computer Interface device, which sits on users’ heads and measures electrical signals from the brain. Users “think forward,” to move the drone forward, and “think right or left” to move it from side to side.

Israel - Map Censorship

What is the difference between a textbook publisher giving into pressure from Christian fundamentalists seeking to censor the teaching of evolution, and a publisher giving in to Zionists seeking to censor awareness of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine? Neither phenomenon is a matter of opinion or perspective. One act of censorship denies facts established by scientific research. The other denies the documented violation of international law (for instance, the Fourth Geneva Convention) and multiple UN resolutions. So the answer to the question just asked is – there is no difference.

British MEPs accused the EU of ‘seeking to fill ‘classrooms with propaganda’, but the report setting out the measures was passed by 482 votes to 146.

Shock: Denver Schools To Patrol Students With Military-Style Rifles: "Certainly Ratchets Up A Notch"

Are they being protected from potential violence, or indoctrinated in a police state society where even children are under sharp suspicion, and misbehavior is criminalized?

A suburban Denver school district is arming its security staff with military-style semiautomatic rifles in case of a school shooting or other violent attack, a move that appears unprecedented even as more schools arm employees in response to mass violence elsewhere.

The guards, who are not law enforcement officers, already carry handguns.

Andrew Jackson, Who Fought Central Bank, Removed from $20 As “Public Concern for Liberty” Erased

The War on Cash has many fronts.

The latest battle is for the face of the currency itself, and the leaders in America’s past who have fought against the stranglehold of the money makers.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to announce this week that Alexander Hamilton’s face will remain on the front of the $10 bill and a woman will replace Andrew Jackson on the face of the $20 bill, a senior government source told CNN on Saturday.

[...]Andrew Jackson famously stated: “You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God, I will rout you out.” (Andrew Jackson, to a delegation of bankers discussing the recharter of the Second Bank of the United States, 1832)

PRISON DEBATE TEAM WHO BEAT HARVARD, WINS AGAIN, THIS TIME AGAINST WEST POINT MILITARY ACADEMY

The Bard Prison Initiative debate team who famously defeated Harvard College students last October put another notch in their belt. This time, in poetic fashion, the prison inmates bested students at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Members of the Bard team, all inmates at a maximum security prison, are enrolled in a college program at the Eastern New York Correctional Facility. They go through a competitive screening process to get there, joining about 1,000 others who made the cut.

Their winning streak in debate demonstrates the cognitive potential that exists in the massive U.S. prison system. This is what motivates the Bard Prison Initiative, which is funded mostly through private donations. Graduates of their college program have an astonishingly low 2 percent rate of recidivism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This begs the question: what should have been done by the alleged educational facilities these kids attended which could have possibly kept these people from going to prison?!?

Unfortunately, the American system of "justice" rewards institutions which don't work, because it keeps recidivism high, and that means more funds for the prison/industrial complex.

And that complex, by the name of UNICOR, turns out an unbelievable array of products, sold primarily to Federal agencies, including: books for the blind; lingerie; park benches and picnic tables; military jackets and battle garb; human silhouette targets; baseball caps; and blue jeans.

And think about it; in Sweden, they are closing their prisons because their program is 100% rehabilitation, which enables people who have served their time to rejoin the community effectively, and recidivism is in single digits.

Why do American voters keep putting up with what fails utterly, and doesn't work at all in its prison systems?!?

THAT is a mystery, and the success of this debate team proves it.

“SMILE IN MY FACE ONE MORE TIME!” COP TERRORIZES CHILD ON SCHOOL BUS FOR NOT WORSHIPPING HIM

A student on a bus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania caught a cop on video angrily berating a kid for smiling. The incident highlights the modern reality in public schools where blue-clad soldiers of law with badges and guns are a normal, everyday presence.

In the video, uploaded to Facebook, an unidentified police officer stalks down the aisle of the bus, directing his rage at a student in the back who performed the outrageous act of smiling.

“You think you’re funny…you think you’re funny.”

As he reaches the student, the cop leans over the boy and says, “Smile in my face one more time, I’m gonna drag your ass off this bus and back to that fucking police car.”

The student is not in view of the camera, but can be heard saying, “Alright, alright.”

“Don’t smile one more time!” the cop says as he leaves the bus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The contemporary school experience is not at all focused on learning, but submission to authority, no matter how much emotional and physical pain and violence that produces.

If you want your child to really be educated, take them out of the public school, and home school them.

If you live in a state that is anti-home schooling, move to a state where this is a respected alternative.

School districts are paid by the State and Federal government based on the number of students in their district; disable the funding through keeping kids safe and home schooled.

If that will not work, find a private school, or a magnet school in your area with a reputation for turning out kids who have the skills to make them competitive in later life.

Not only do your kid's educational lives depend on this;but also, the future of our society, as a place where critical thinking, and good decision making, are encouraged.

THE REVOLT OF THE DEBT SLAVES HAS STARTED

If we could just get consumers to borrow more so that they spend money they don’t have on things they don’t need in order to boost GDP and corporate profits, all would be fine. That’s the current meme among economists. Since 68.5% of US GDP is related to personal consumption expenditures, boosting consumer spending is seen as crucial. Since wages at the lower 75% are crummy and have not been rising enough to keep up with inflation, the only other way to prod consumers into spending more is to bamboozle them into borrowing more and blowing this moolah instantly.

UC DAVIS PAID $175,000 OR MORE TO SCRUB POLICE PEPPER SPRAY INCIDENT FROM WEB SEARCHES

After a police officer pepper-sprayed UC Davis students in a widely reported 2011 incident, the California university contracted with SEO consultants for $175,000 (or maybe more) to scrub unfavorable online items about the incident and boost online reputations of both the university and Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi.

The Sacramento Bee reported on the SEO scandal, and based their story on documents newly released in response to requests filed last month under the California Public Records Act.

In January 2013, UC Davis contracted a Maryland firm, Nevins & Associates, for a six-month contract that paid $15,000 a month. Nevins was the first of many "reputation management firms" paid off by the university administrators. And that payment was just the start.

Beginning Monday, the department will start sending letters to that group of about 387,000, explaining they are eligible for loan forgiveness. The letter will include an application that they will simply sign and return. Unlike other borrowers, they will not be required to submit documentation of their eligibility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, nobody will be checking to see if these people are lying about being disabled. This is a desperate attempt to lower the student loan default rate to make the US economy look better. But while this is the usual slip-shod government work, the core idea is sound. It is time to start writing off debt on the people if there is to be any chance of saving the economy as a whole. Is this the start of a modern day Jubilee?

Graduates from poorer backgrounds earn less than richer peers on same course, major international study finds

Graduates from richer families earn significantly more than poorer students who do the same degree at the same university, a huge study of over quarter of a million people has found.

The research, which examined anonymised tax data and student loan records going back to 1998, found a marked link between parental income and earning potential of their children. Even after taking account of the subject studied and the university attended, the average student from a higher-income background earned around 10 per cent more than the average student from other backgrounds.

COMMON CORE, K-12 SCHOOLING, & HOW TO TURN CHILDREN INTO REAL ESTATE

I recently spoke with Robin S. Eubanks, whose blog Invisible Serfs Collar is a massive data dump exploring the long-term social engineering goals behind the Common Core State Standards Initiative currently pushing K-12 schooling in the US. Eubanks links Common Core to the National Science Foundation and to behavioral sciences & social psychology research that goes back at least to the 1930s and the Fabian Society, the Ford Foundation, the London School of Economics, the Tavistock Institute, and the Center for Advanced Studies in Behavioral Science. According to Eubanks, the education/indoctrination plan she is mapping has to do with removing “the transmission of knowledge” from the education process entirely & instead “incepting” emotional imagery into the unconscious.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common Core is an absolute disaster, because critical thinking is denied, and logic, and intelligent questioning, is suppressed.

If Mike and I had children, I would make sure that we lived in a state where home schooling was allowed, because I completely doubt the ability of public schools to turn kids into anything else but sniveling, compliant drones, just educated enough for whatever jobs were left in this country, and never questioning public policy in any depth.

Water systems across New Mexico reveal high levels of lead

Lead ions are toxic. This has been known for years, and I think it's just a sensationalized news article on a slow news day.

Already Under Crushing Debt, Arizona College Forces Students to “Fund Illegal Immigrants”

Will students at colleges across the country soon be forced to pay for the higher education of illegal immigrants, even as most will already have to struggle for years to repay expensive and burdensome student loans?

“It is beyond absurd that this college is going to force all the students to subsidize the education of a student who is in the country illegally,” added Jessica Vaughn, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies.

“At a time when student loan debt is over $1 trillion it is irresponsible for Prescott College to offer this privilege at the expense of other students,” Andrew Kloster, a legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Legal & Judicial Studies

The Wars in Our Schools

Politicians and the school boards, time and again, claim their school systems are broke. No money for books, teacher's salaries and pensions, healthy lunches, etc. And yet, in 2015, the U.S. spent $598 billion on the military. That's nearly 10 times what it spent on education.

Capitalism vs. Free Enterprise

Capitalism gives special government-supported benefits to capital and those with capital (wealthy individuals, families and business entities).
This is the opposite of socialism, which promotes special government-supported benefits to those without capital—the proletariat, as Karl Marx put it.
In contrast to both capitalism and socialism, free enterprise establishes good laws and government policies that treat the rich, middle and poor the same.
Some people may believe that this is the system we live under in the United States today—that the law treats all the same.
Such an assumption is incorrect.

97 Architects Submit Resolution to be Voted on at
AIA National Convention

Our Most Important Campaign of the Year!

We did it again. I, along with 96 other AE911Truth petition signers who are members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), have sponsored a bold resolution that calls upon the AIA to officially support a new WTC 7 investigation.

Yesterday the AIA released its Official Delegate Information Booklet. Our resolution, number 16-3 on page 36, is one of just three that will be voted on.

Unlike last year’s resolution, this one contains three pages of powerful evidence upon which we're basing our call for a new investigation. At least 1,000 AIA members — if not more — will lay eyes on it in the next six weeks.

Parents complain after teacher hands out 'privilege' survey

A Florida principal launched an investigation into a survey handed out to middle school students in Spanish class.

Some parents complained after their children were asked to complete a form titled, "How much privilege do you have?'

Students routinely fill out forms every year that ask their race and sex, but the form handed out at Monroe Middle School also asked about gender, sexual orientation and religion.

Regina Stile is the mother of one of the students who received the form.

"Her sexuality and all that has nothing to do with school," Stile said.

The form was handed out in a Spanish class to 7th and 8th graders

Virginia governor vetoes bill to label books 'sexually explicit' in schools

The measure passed by the Republican-controlled legislature would have mandated that schools notify parents if teachers planned to use the labeled materials.

"This requirement lacks flexibility and would require the label of 'sexually explicit' to apply to an artistic work based on a single scene, without further context," McAuliffe, a Democrat, said in a statement.

The Day Free Speech Died at Harvard Law School

There is a perception that being liberal is synonymous with tolerance. As youth tends to spawn idealism, it would follow that the most liberal campuses are home to the most tolerant student body.

However, after nearly three years of study at Harvard Law School, I have found that a significant number of the most liberal students tend to be the least tolerant of opposing viewpoints.

In late 2014, during my second year at Harvard Law School, a student group called Students For Inclusion created a blog entitled Socratic Shortcomings. Its commitment, we are told, is to “[foster] productive and contextualized conversations on matters related to race, gender and class.” The site allows students—and anyone really—to post anonymously about events at Harvard Law School.

America's teachers are being trained in a harsh interrogation technique that produces false confessions

The Reid Technique is the go-to method for coercing false confessions in America's police interrogation rooms, and now it's being taught to America's schoolteachers, just as schools are using "zero-tolerance" policies and on-site cops to re-characterize school discipline problems as criminal matters, creating a school-to-prison pipeline. John E. Reid and Associates originated the technique, which involves "minimization" (the interrogator downplays the seriousness of the offense) and "maximization" (the interrogator threatens the accused with terrible, lasting punishment for failing to confess).

Mother Charged with Child Neglect, Could Lose Her Children for Having them Walk to School

Palmer then got in her car and drove in front of her two daughters as they walked the 3-mile route to school.

While some may think that having kids walk to school is a harsh punishment, it is far better than beating them. That being said, when Marion County sheriff’s deputy Chris Ladd spotted the two girls walking behind their mother’s car, he just had to stop it...

PC gone mad on campus: The places where ‘sportsmanlike’ is a dirty rude

POLITICAL correctness is stifling free speech on Australian university campuses, a policy think tank has warned.

And student’s hurt feelings are being prioritised over academic debate, says the Institute of Public Affairs.

Sarcasm and ridicule have been banned at several campuses — including Western Sydney University, while terms like “sportsmanlike” or “the disabled” are deemed inappropriate at Newcastle University.

Students are being persecuted over their political views, while growing policy guidelines on “acceptable” speech are curtailing academic freedoms, research fellow Matthew Lesh says.

Campus Lunacy

The American Council of Trustees and Alumni publishes occasional reports on what college students know. Nearly 10 percent of the college graduates surveyed thought Judith Sheindlin, TV’s “Judge Judy,” is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court. Less than 20 percent of the college graduates knew the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation. More than a quarter of the college graduates did not know Franklin D. Roosevelt was president during World War II; one-third did not know he was the president who spearheaded the New Deal. But it is a little mystery why so many college students are illiterate, innumerate and resistant to understanding. Let’s look at it.

Campbell Brown: The New Leader of the Propaganda Arm of School Privatization

Perhaps guided by the old adage that you have to spend money to make money, the champions of education "reform" have poured billions into the effort to privatize and profit from America’s schools. Those funds are used on multiple fronts: launching charter schools, underwriting the political campaigns of politicians, and of course, investing in media to propagate the free-market privatization vision. Among the most visible properties in this effort is the Seventy Four, the well-funded, power broker-backed education news website run by former journalist-turned-school privatization activist Campbell Brown. Launched last year, the site’s reported $4 million annual budget comes from a collective of school privatization’s big hitters: The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Jonathan Sackler (of OxyContin producer Purdue Pharma) and the Walton Family Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The goal of government schools is to make children more useful to the government. Hence we may conclude that the goal of corporate owned schools will be to make children more useful to corporations. They will be taught that vaccines are safe, GMO's healthy, massive debt the norm, and the importance of always wearing this year's fashions!

Israel - Map Censorship

"Information Clearing House" - What is the difference between a textbook publisher giving into pressure from Christian fundamentalists seeking to censor the teaching of evolution, and a publisher giving in to Zionists seeking to censor awareness of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine? Neither phenomenon is a matter of opinion or perspective. One act of censorship denies facts established by scientific research. The other denies the documented violation of international law (for instance, the Fourth Geneva Convention) and multiple UN resolutions. So the answer to the question just asked is – there is no difference.

The 2013 study was set out to determine whether or not viewing television at 29 months (about 2.5 years) was associated with school performance at 65 months (about 5.5 years).

Why Are Educators Learning How to Interrogate Their Students?

The training was led by Joseph Buckley, the president of John E. Reid and Associates, which is based in Chicago. Like the adult version of the Reid Technique, the school version involves three basic parts: an investigative component, in which you gather evidence; a behavioral analysis, in which you interview a suspect to determine whether he or she is lying; and a nine-step interrogation, a nonviolent but psychologically rigorous process that is designed, according to Reid’s workbook, “to obtain an admission of guilt.” Most of the I.P.A. session, Schneider told me, focused on behavioral analysis. Buckley described to trainees how patterns of body language—including slumping, failing to look directly at the interviewer, offering “evasive” responses, and showing generally “guarded” behaviors—could supposedly reveal whether a suspect was lying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This interrogation of kids criminalises their behaviour, rather than look for the reasons the bad behaviour happened, and developing a practical plan, involving the kids' parents, from preventing it from happening again.

But this generates the kind of non-thinking, ever-compliant behavior corporations seem to want in what they would characterise as "model employees"...until those jobs can be outsourced/offshored, or those employees replaced by robots, if at all possible.

Were I a parent whose kid was in an educational institution which employed the "Reid Method", I would take that kid out of school, and either home school them, or put them into a private school so quickly that the principal's head would be turning around faster than that of Linda Blair in "The Exorcist"!!

There were warnings that it encouraged a climate of "over-reaction" in which pupils were mistakenly reported and the police called.

Among the cases mentioned were a child writing about a "cucumber" which was misinterpreted as "cooker bomb" and a child who wrote about living in a "terraced" house which was misunderstood as a "terrorist" house.

Teacher who got fired after student stole her nude pics sues school district

A South Carolina high school teacher has sued (PDF) the school district that employed her after she was pushed to resign when a student grabbed racy pictures off her smartphone.

Leigh Anne Arthur resigned from her job earlier last month when she was told she would face disciplinary proceedings because a student grabbed photos off her phone while she was on a routine hall patrol.

At the time, Arthur complained that she, rather than the student, was the one being punished. The student shared the racy pictures of Arthur with his friends as well. Arthur said the pictures were a Valentine's Day gift for her husband, and she forgot to erase them from her phone.

"He knows right from wrong," she said of the student in a TV interview shortly after the incident. "Where are you putting the moral of the student?"

The FBI Wants Teachers To Go Stasi On American Kids

Finally, here’s the heart of the thing. The report continues to be carefully nonspecific and suggesting that most would-be violent people are not to be found by establishing a pattern. However, “students and educators are encouraged to convey their concerns and observations to trusted community partners, school resource officers, or a local law enforcement entity.” And “acting decisively” is important if a teacher sees that a student has turned terrorist.

Fundamentally, the FBI wants people not to profile, but as soon as someone fits the profile, they should call law enforcement. And that profile, fittingly, can include such asinine checkpoints as “feeling lost” or having some kind of mental health problem (welcome to America and its neurosis and depression). The FBI’s new teen website details more of the warning signs, which are predictably meaningless, yet menacing.

And remember: school records now follow kids through their entire school lives, at this point in this creeping dystopia which has become the United States of America.

As reported at education.law.lawyers.com:

Most of us remember hearing one of our grade school or high school teachers say something like, "This is going on your permanent record!" You may have thought about it back then, but it's something easily forgotten about. Now that you're a parent, you may be wondering if your child has a "permanent" school record. Have a school law question? Get answers from local attorneys. It's free and easy. Ask a Lawyer Yes, she does. And odds are, yours is still around, too. What Is It? Practically everything about permanent student records is controlled by the laws of the state where the school is located. These laws are probably different in some ways from state to state, so be certain to check the laws in your area for specific details. Nonetheless, there are some things in common for most permanent school records. What's in the Record? You can expect to see some or all of these things in a permanent record: Basic information for identifying the student, such as her name, address and birth date, and also the names and addresses of her parents or legal guardians Academic records or "transcripts," including grades, classes or courses taken and completed, class rank, date and age the student advanced to the next grade or graduated, and scores on standardized tests, such as placement tests, ACT/SAT scores, and college entrance exams Attendance record Any accident reports or incidents or any health-related information on record, such as medication administered at school and/or with the help of a school nurse, like insulin or other long-term medications Results of any intelligence, aptitude, and psychological and personality tests the student took while at the school Teacher evaluations of the student's performance or abilities Disciplinary actions taken against the student, such as suspensions or expulsions, and the reasons for the actions taken, such as cheating, destroying school property and fighting with students or staff Awards and honors earned by the student The student's participation in school activities, such as sports, student government, etc. A record of who was given access to the permanent record and when As you can see, your permanent record is a lot like a resume; it gives quick and easy access to your highlights (and any lowlights) of the time spent at the school.

McGraw-Hill destroys textbook to placate pro-Israel bloggers

The publisher McGraw-Hill Education is destroying all copies of a political science textbook after receiving complaints from hardline supporters of Israel that it features a series of “anti-Israel” maps.

The college textbook, titled Global Politics: Engaging a Complex World, was published in 2012. But it wasn’t until early this month that the maps generated criticism from a pro-Israel blogger known as Elder of Ziyon.

Within a week of the initial outcry, McGraw-Hill began destroying all copies of the book, scrubbed the book from its website, promised to reimburse anyone who bought the book and apologized to the offended right-wing bigots behind the manufactured controversy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The maps illustrate how Israel has continued to displace the Palestinians since Israel's creation. They are factual and accurate, but the truth is hate speech to those with something to hide.

UC Regents Conclude: "Anti-Zionism and other forms of discrimination have no place at the University of California."

The 'Office of the Secretary and Chief of Staff' for the University of California system recommended that the UC Regents adopt the recently released 'Working Group on Principles Against Intolerance.' This is to occur at the upcoming March 23, 2016 meeting. While much of it is mind-numbingly boring and droning gobble-dee-gook, below are the relevant paragraphs. They begin with a little background, give platitudes to freedom of speech, and then begin with their squirrely language which can be interpreted basically however the regime in power at any given time wants it to be interpreted. Their first paragraph, however, states very clearly that anti-Zionism is 'discrimination' and will not be tolerated.

The American classroom: Main protagonist in war on working poor

Social engineering with a theme of class warfare has been a cornerstone of early American education from its beginning as a system of the modern state. For example, the US Bureau of Education Circulars of Information of April 1872 stated: "Inculcating knowledge teaches workers to perceive and calculate their grievances thus making them more redoubtable foes in labor struggles. Such an enabling is bound to retard the growth of industry."

Later, an 1888 report by the Senate Committee on Education stated: "We believe that education is one of the principal causes of discontent of late years manifesting itself among the laboring classes."

School may expel Muslim teens for standing up to bullies — after ignoring their pleas for years

o Muslim teens say their New York school has ignored about bullying for years — and now they may be expelled for fighting back.

Adam and Jameel Siam said they have suffered anti-Muslim harassment for at least two years at Williamsville East High School, but they said administrators have done nothing to address their complaints, reported WIVB-TV.

“I was bullied for Osama bin Laden, I’ve been called a terrorist,” said Jameel, a junior. “We’ve been called terrorists, go back home and make bombs in your basement or you’re going to come back and shoot up the school — and it’s just like, people kept pushing our buttons.”

The boys have attended schools in the western New York village since preschool, but they said the bullying has recently grown worse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The school administrators should have put a stop to this years ago; the only reason these kids wound up in a fight was that the administration did nothing to prevent this bullying, and that is a damned shame.

Bullying is a lousy thing, but when it is premised on ethnicity and religion, it is just so vilely immoral, that I hardly know where to begin.

I would like to hope that ALL faith communities in the areas where this family is living rally around them, and offer some protection against this harassment.

When Mike and I were living in Greater Los Angeles, I met some Muslim businessmen who moved here for the same reasons my ancestors did; to live away from the evil of prejudice, and practice their religion freely; to have the opportunity to work hard, and succeed in your chosen profession, and to create a better life for their kids.

Unfortunately for these young men, and their families, that "American dream" is being warped into a nightmare, so faith communities Amherst, PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!

No innocent kid should ever be blamed for the evil other people might have done, just because they are Arab and Muslim, period, end of discussion!!

ISRAEL BANS NOVEL ON ARAB-JEWISH ROMANCE FROM SCHOOLS FOR ‘THREATENING JEWISH IDENTITY’

The Ministry of Education in Israel has banned schools from educating students about a love story that centers around an Israeli girl and a Palestinian guy, because it will inspire ‘hate’ and will result in cultural assimilation. Educators had chosen to ban Borderlife – ?? ???? – ?????? ?????? by Dorit Rabinyan, who is from the same country that banned her book, so it could not enter the nation’s educational program. The banning of the book has sparked a debate within the country. Rabinyan has criticized the decision, and has said that the ban has labeled her book as something that is disgraceful to the Jewish state.

American graduates dumber than other countries' high school dropouts

In spite of being only one quarter the size of them, the United States spends nearly the same amount of money on video games as China. One would think since Americans spend tens of billions annually on video games, they would naturally be technologically savvy. However, the results of the PIAAC study show that is simply not the case. In fact, the average American citizen comes in dead last for being able to perform simple technological procedures.

"Clearly, we have some work to do in this country," says Peggy Carr, the acting commissioner of the government's National Center for Education Statistics.

When it comes to basic technological skills like using email, buying and returning items online, using a drop-down menu, naming a file on a computer or sending a text message — Americans rank dead last.

But it's not just daily technology tasks that Americans fail at accomplishing, they also scored terribly in math and literacy.

Renowned Scholar Warns Common Core Education Dumbing Down Kids

Waking Times

The US federal Government has stated that their goal with Common Core was to make all students “college-and-career-ready”. Sounds great in theory, but Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, thinks that the Common Core program is actually resulting in colleges being flooded with students unprepared to do college level work.

Renowned Scholar Warns Common Core Education Dumbing Down Kids

Educators and parents in the United States are becoming increasingly frustrated by the Common Core States Initiative program, which was deployed in June 2010 as part of President Obama’s Race-To-The-Top (RTTT) program. During the following four years, public schools throughout the states were enticed to integrate the Common Core program as the Federal Government dangled $4.3 billion in funds to reward schools for satisfying certain federally determined performance on standardized tests, with the funds only going to schools which implemented Common Core.

Shocker: After Caving To Protests, Mizzou Has HUGE Budget Gap

Who wants to send their children to a place that is unsafe and has a poor learning environment! And is and incompetently run to boot!

The University of Missouri (MU) is losing about 1500 students and is facing a huge $32 million budget shortfall four months after it attracted national attention as the site of massive race-based campus protests.

According to Foley’s letter, MU will have about 1500 fewer students in fall 2016 compared to last year, an unexpected drop that is in turn causing a big dip in the school’s tuition income.

Because of the abrupt and unexpected nature of the shortfall, Foley is taking immediate and severe steps to fix the situation: The school budget is being cut 5 percent across the board, all hiring is being frozen (barring exceptional circumstances), and annual raises have been canceled.
