Illinois College Will Stop Arresting Students For Passing Out Constitution

An Illinois college has reversed its position and will allow students to pass out copies of the U.S Constitution on campus.

It’s a good move, since the Alliance Defending Freedom threatened to sue them if they didn’t.

Under the old policies, students were threatened with arrest if they passed out the founding documents on the campus of the College of DuPage.

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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.

Parents To Pull Primary Kids From School Over ‘Transgender Day’

Angry parents have withdrawn their children from an East Sussex primary school over the headteacher’s plans to hold a ‘transgender day.’

A number of families are reportedly unhappy with plans by Emma Maltby, head of the St Mary the Virgin Primary School, to hold a transgender awareness day.

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!!

A number of teachers emphasized that they felt the sickouts had represented a step forward, but have been stymied ever since.

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

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.

UC DAVIS WOMEN’S CENTER OFFERS ‘MIND SPA SERVICES’ FOR THOSE UPSET BY PRO-LIFE DISPLAY

The University of California Davis Women’s Resource and Research Center (WRRC) recruited student volunteers to distribute bias incident report forms during a pro-life demonstration last week.

“We are calling for volunteers to help make signs, hold content warning information signs, [and] hand out Report Hate and Bias information cards,” the group wrote in an email later posted to Facebook.

In addition, WRRC volunteers were recruited to “provide umbrella escorts for community members” who did not want to stand in the sun while protesting.

According to the group’s Facebook page, the event was organized in collaboration “with the CRRC’s, including the LGBTQIARC and Center for Student Involvement.” Even though the Center for Student Involvement claims to “help groups operate successfully on campus and to support the education experience which organizations provide for student members,” it allegedly partnered exclusively with a pro-choice group rather than a pro-life group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To not be able to have an intelligent, low-key conversation about pro-life/pro-choice issues, which doesn't conclude with throwing pro-life literature to the ground, makes these women very ill-equipped to go out and deal with other hard, real-life choices.

These women may be also very emotionally swayed to make what are ultimately lousy life choices without thinking things through to their logical conclusions; for example, many of these students probably think that Hillary Clinton is an excellent choice for President in 2016, without knowing - or wanting to know - the gruelingly sordid reality of her professional record.

This is truly scary, in a society where logic critically needs to matter in our decision-making, for our personal futures, and the national future.

ECB cuts interest rate to 0% and offers banks free money to try and revive the European economy

The European Central Bank has cut the benchmark interest rate to 0 per cent, from 0.05 per cent, in a bid to revive the slow European economy.

The bank also cut the deposit rate facility to -0.4 per cent, which means it will cost banks more to hold cash rather than to lend it out to customers.

The ECB has decided to boost its quantitative easting programme by €20bn, to €80bn per month starting in April.

The FBI Has Quietly Started Spying on U.S. School Children to Quash Dissent at an Early Age

Moldy, rat-infested, and damaged by bullets: A furious mother grills Bernie and Hillary on how they would fix the problems facing Detroit public schools if elected 

Nearly every public school in Detroit had to close back in January after teachers called out sick in protest of deplorable conditions at the schools.

And on Sunday, Shaniqua Kent, who is suing Detroit Public Schools for a better education, asked Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders at the Democratic presidential debate in Flint, Michigan what they would do to improve conditions for students and teachers at impoverished schools nationwide.

The teachers' union in Detroit has repeatedly complained about mold, rodent infestations, too-large class sizes and other issues. Photos that surfaced on social media starting in early January show black mold growing on the ceiling of schools, old food, unfixed bullet holes, and rodent droppings on the floor, according to Business Insider.

To avoid the appearance of discrimination, the FBI identifies risk factors that are so broad and vague that virtually any young person could be deemed dangerous and worthy of surveillance, especially if she is socio-economically marginalized or politically outspoken. (Photo: Security array via Shutterstock)

Under new guidelines, the FBI is instructing high schools across the country to report students who criticize government policies and "western corruption" as potential future terrorists, warning that "anarchist extremists" are in the same category as ISIS and young people who are poor, immigrants or travel to "suspicious" countries are more likely to commit horrific violence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How "Old Soviet Union" of the FBI! And it has become "official Federal policy>"?!?!?!?

For years, I have been counseling families with skills and kids to get out of this country while they still can.

Disturbing Video Shows What Public School Looks Like in a Police State as a Cop Beats a Student

In the brief video, the officer is seen throwing punches and kicking the student.

The assault happened Tuesday at the Reach! Partnership School in Baltimore and both officers in the video have been placed on administrative leave, said Karen Parks, spokeswoman for the Baltimore public school system.

“As a parent of a Baltimore city school student, I was appalled by what I saw,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said of the video. “The behavior that was demonstrated … is certainly something you never want to see. … Certainly not a school officer acting in this way, particularly with a young person.”

Officials Track Child Social Media To “Punish” Students For Inappropriate Posts Made Out Of School

In a move that is sure to warm the hearts of police state cheerleaders across the nation, school officials in Huntsville announced that they are now spying on students’ social media accounts and, regardless of whether they are public or private, will dole out punishments accordingly.

This new and Orwellian system of state-sponsored spying on children will give administrators the ability to punish students for their posts.

The system is designed to ostensibly track violent students to prevent their violent behavior. However, some feel that this move is a direct attempt to cover for the district’s failure to provide a safe learning environment.

According to AL.com;

The new social media procedure could be used to deter students who post videos of school fights, said Anson Knowles, former Huntsville city school board candidate.

IF you have a kid in the Huntsville public school system, take them out now, and home school them, or - if that is impossible - find a decent charter school for them.

Here’s One Big Reason Voters Are Angry and Turning to Trump

***
Americans today worry that income inequality is becoming more pronounced, and that upward mobility is on the decline. Democrats have made this a centerpiece of their campaign, but they are in fact the architects and defenders of one of the pillars of those troubling trends. Democrats, and their allies in the teachers unions, ignore the collapse of our public education system, which no longer prepares kids for success in today’s workplace. As our economy becomes more dependent on technology and more stratified by academic achievement, our schools have not kept pace. Entire communities unable to read and to perform basic math are being left behind. That is what the educational establishment is doing through its defense of its indefensible failures.

School Districts Are Spending Millions on Marxist/White Privilege Training for Staff

If you’ve ever wondered what your tax dollars really go towards when your state funds public education, then look no further. There’s a good chance that the schools in your community are spending big bucks on the Pacific Educational Group. This little known San Francisco based consulting firm specializes in improving education opportunities for minority students and “is committed to achieving racial equity in education” according their mission statement.

In reality, the organization peddles white privilege based ideologies to public school districts across America. They believe that our schools unfairly favor white students by promoting a white culture, and their business model involves training teachers to cater to minorities. They believe that this white curriculum promotes “individualism” and “hard work” at the expense of minority students who supposedly have a culture of collectivism.

Does George Mason University support violence against women? GMU is harboring a violent wife abuser and discredited journalist Jon Entine as a biotech research fellow

In an explosive investigative article series published last year, Natural News revealed that Jon Entine, who violently attacked his wife and traumatized his daughter according to shocking court documents, is a "senior research fellow" at George Mason University and a visiting research fellow at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis).

Homework Assignment: Tell Your Parents You’re Converting to Islam

A homework assignment given to school children on the island of Guernsey asks 13-year-olds to write a letter to their parents explaining why they are converting to Islam.

The assignment, created by Religious Education teacher Miss Amber Stables at the Les Beaucamp High School, asks kids to, “Complete the letter you started or started planning in class to your family on how you are converting to Islam.”

“Include: How you’re feeling, how becoming a Muslim has changed your life, how much you love your family and hope they can accept your choice,” states the assignment.

“Focus: How would it make you feel having to tell your parents this?? How would/could they react?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The obvious propaganda aside, just what kind of employment is this kind of "education" preparing these children for?

By Matt Agorist

In the famous Supreme Court case of Texas v. Johnson in 1989, a five-justice majority ruled that desecrating the American flag was protected speech under the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

Eulogy For a Civilization

we are NOT borg

snip: As social systems become more institutionalized, human life becomes less significant; more brutal and degraded. People pledge their lives to flags and other lifeless abstractions; their wealth is taken to sustain the interests of entities to which they have subjugated themselves; their bodies and energies shipped to foreign lands to kill and be killed in contrived conflicts that serve no purposes of their own; their children – and, thus, the fate of mankind itself – consumed in the well-organized commitment to death in its varied forms.
