MASSIVE MAILING EFFORT UNDERTAKEN AFTER CAMPUS NEWSPAPERS REFUSE TO RUN AE911TRUTH INSERT

Initially, staff at The Harvard Crimson also agreed to run the inserts. They signed a contract with AE911Truth, which then created a brochure with the words "Paid Advertisement" printed on it to meet Crimson advertising guidelines. After the ad was approved by the Crimson, manufactured, and mailed to the newspaper's offices for publication, the university reversed its position and broke the contract.

The End of Higher Education as We Know It

The academy is entering a dangerous time. Academics now find themselves entering a time when a more comprehensive politics that deals with the rise of authoritarianism through a variety of related fundamentalisms–economic, religious, political, and educational–is being overlooked as a result of an emerging limited and depoliticizing politics of civility and trauma. This is not meant to suggest that dehumanizing behavior and injurious forms of trauma do not matter and should not be addressed. What is disturbing is when such incidents lose their sense of specificity and connections to wider political and economic forces and become universalized and all-encompassing.

America, The Ponzi Scheme: A Commencement Speech For The Scammed

It couldn’t be a sunnier, more beautiful day to exit your lives -- or enter them -- depending on how you care to look at it. After all, here you are four years later in your graduation togs with your parents looking on, waiting to celebrate. The question is: Celebrate what exactly?

In possibly the last graduation speech of 2015, I know I should begin by praising your grit, your essential character, your determination to get this far. But today, it’s money, not character, that’s on my mind. For so many of you, I suspect, your education has been a classic scam and you’re not even attending a “for profit” college -- an institution of higher learning, that is, officially set up to take you for a ride.

Seinfeld: Comedians Avoid Performing at Politically Correct Colleges

After being questioned on the current climate in comedy, Seinfeld stated that fellow comedians warn him “all the time” about performing at universities. “I don’t play colleges but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges, they’re so pc,’” Seinfeld said. Using a personal story involving his 14-year-old daughter, Seinfeld explained how the politically correct-obsessed youth regularly parrots buzzwords they know little to nothing about.

ARMS COMPANIES ARE MAKING MONEY BY TAKING OVER UK SCHOOLS

Europe’s largest arms manufacturer, BAE Systems, has applied to sponsor the failing Furness Academy. The reason is profit. Corporations have already established a growing foothold in many UK schools, but the idea of Europe’s biggest arms company running a school still seems like something out of an Orwellian nightmare.

‘May the Farce Be With You': School Locks Down Over Man in Stormtrooper Costume

It was the worst Star Wars sequel ever – more a farce, than anything.

But intergalactic justice was served, apparently. Or maybe we just crossed over into a dimension without rights or even basic sense.

George Cross, 40, of Lynn, was dressed in a white plastic “Star Wars” stormtrooper costume, and the gun was not real. But Lynn Police spokesman Lt. Rick Donnelly said that “the way things are today, you can’ have that.”

EDITORS OF WORLD’S MOST PRESTIGIOUS MEDICAL JOURNALS: “MUCH OF THE SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE, PERHAPS HALF, MAY SIMPLY BE UNTRUE”

Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices.

The College Commencement Speech Every Graduate Needs To Hear

Today, we bring you a commencement speech for the real world.

"In effect, you are graduating with a mortgage but no house. And what did you get? A subprime education."

"To those who majored in gender studies, film deconstruction, or any other of today's academic fads, to you I have this advice: when this commencement speech is over, do not bother looking for a job. Instead go straight to the unemployment office."

"Graduates, you have been saddled with debt and bad ideas. Good luck, you're going to need it."

I'm a liberal professor, and my liberal students terrify me

Things have changed since I started teaching. The vibe is different. I wish there were a less blunt way to put this, but my students sometimes scare me — particularly the liberal ones.

Not, like, in a person-by-person sense, but students in general. The student-teacher dynamic has been reenvisioned along a line that's simultaneously consumerist and hyper-protective, giving each and every student the ability to claim Grievous Harm in nearly any circumstance, after any affront, and a teacher's formal ability to respond to these claims is limited at best.

Teacher takes young students on field trip to sex shop

A sex education teacher has drawn the ire of parents after taking middle school and high school students on a field trip to an adult novelty store in Minneapolis.

Gaia Democratic School director Starri Hedges took about a dozen students to the Smitten Kitten last week. Hedges told the Star Tribune that she wanted to provide a safe environment for students to learn about human sexual behavior.

Besides offering adult books, videos, toys and other products, the store has educational workshops, which the students attended.

A Nation of Millennial Entitlements

The sense of entitlement—and providing rewards for the smallest of achievements—goes back to almost a neonatal stage. We now have kindergarten graduations, complete with caps, gowns, and diplomas. For the next 12 years, our children will receive sparkling peel-off stars on their homework papers, medals and trophies for being one of the top 3 or 5 or 7 winners in athletic competitions. Even if they don’t get the hardware, they get embossed ribbons just for participating.

The College Bureaucracy: How Education Forgot the Students and Became A Business

Students attend college to pursue their interests, broaden their intellectual horizons and make headway toward a career. While this is made difficult due to the amount of debt that many must saddle in order to earn a degree, there is also another, much stealthier problem as well: the college bureaucracy. University bureaucracies absorb large amounts of funding and undermine the alleged goal of college, which is to provide an education. But they also signal something more sinister: the neo-liberalization of education, now viewed as a business.

Fury after primary pupils are asked to complete radicalisation-seeking surveys

Parents of children as young as nine have reacted angrily after schools in an east London borough asked pupils to complete surveys designed to provide clues to possible radicalisation. Waltham Forest council has been piloting the scheme in five primary schools with large Muslim intakes. The questionnaire, circulated among year 6 pupils, asks how much they trust the police and people from another race or religion.

They are also asked whether they agree that it is acceptable to marry someone from outside their race or religion and whether women are just as good as men at work. Another question asks if the pupils believe their religion is the only correct one. About 22% of the population in Waltham Forest, one of the most deprived local authorities in England, are Muslim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the Ministry of Education in the UK: this is not rocket science, and you are looking in absolutely the wrong direction here.

What causes radicalisation is realizing that a foreign country is taking advantage of natural resources in a country, to which the invading country has absolutely no moral right.

What causes radicalization is watching a relative, a toddler, get blown to bits by a drone bombing, and understanding that this dead, innocent child is considered simply "collateral damage" by the government doing the drone bombing.

What causes radicalization is not being able to peacefully advocate for change, because the government in power (let's say in Bahrain) is supported by both the British and US governments, where the Bahraini government will have your tear gassed or hit with rubber bullets for your efforts; then, the first responders who tried to keep you from dying are tortured into confessing, and also jailed.

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

Don’t hold your breath for Millennials to purchase homes: 6 years into a recovery and Millennials are still moving into parental homes at record levels.

I ran into a successful Millennial couple this month and we had a good discussion about housing. They are in their 30s and still do not have any kids. Both are career driven and ultimately would like to buy a home. They have the money to buy but just don’t want to. What they brought up was interesting and they mentioned some of their peers had to resort to moving back in with mom and dad. What they brought up simply reflects a “new normal” for Millennials and that is many are simply not eager to purchase a home. Many are delaying marriage, have smaller families (if any), and a large number are carrying sizable student debt. All of this has caused a low demand for housing and alternative choices to buying a home especially for this cohort of Americans. In California we have a high number of adults living at home largely because of the cost of rents and home prices. Yet this trend encompasses the entire country. Higher home prices and rents have only exacerbated this movement.

According to an estimate by a U.S. education company, some 8,000 Chinese students were expelled from American universities last year alone – and the main reasons were poor grades and cheating.

Wrongfully treating academic debate as anti-Semitism

The principle of academic freedom at our universities is under attack by those seeking to shield Israel from criticism by silencing dissent, shutting down discussion and imposing a stifling atmosphere of intimidation at the University of California, in particular.

A coordinated set of petitions, including a letter signed by 57 rabbis, asks UC administrators to adopt the State Department's definition of anti-Semitism as a means to "accurately identify" and "publicly condemn" it in campus debate, protest and discussion. That problematic definition conflates principled criticism of Israeli policies with genuine anti-Semitism; if the university accedes to this demand, such criticism — and academic freedom — could be suppressed by administrative fiat.

Inflation acts as a pickpocket on the wallets of working Americans: Young Americans take a big hit given the small weight given to tuition in the CPI.

Inflation is a very real thing. The Fed continues to downplay the impacts of inflation to support their ongoing easy monetary policy. What this has created is an inflated stock market and hot money chasing into other asset classes including real estate. This wouldn’t be such an issue if your typical working American family was benefitting. Instead, it is assisting larger financial institutions and big investors to pick up assets in all segments of the real economy and consequently crowds out regular buyers. Inflation is the end outcome of all this kind of action.

Here are the 10 most absurd reasons why small children have been arrested in America

At this point, it’s hard to be surprised by the extreme punitiveness of America’s criminal justice system. One thing that can still shock, though, is how police manhandle actual children. Not only is treatment of children severe (police in Arizona recently mulled over the possibility of charging an 8-year-old as an adult), but our system is undiscerning; we can, and do, arrest kids for virtually anything, including completely normal childhood misbehavior. In fact, many youth, particularly people of color from low-income households, come into contact with their first handcuffs in school. Here are some of the stranger examples of this depressingly American practice.

In the middle of the 20th century, most Americans who either aspired to or had to work entered the full-time workforce immediately after high school, for such a postwar economy featured plenty of growth and comparably fair wage-compensation for the average worker.
