15,000 Dutch Teachers Reportedly Go on Strike Over Working Conditions

About 15,000 primary school teachers from three Dutch provinces went on strike demanding higher wages and better working conditions, local media reported Wednesday.

According to the DutchNews media outlet, the strike took place in the Flevoland, North Holland and Utrecht as part of the nationwide campaign launched in 2017.

The teachers criticize the government for failing to meet the shortage of primary school teachers in the country despite the fact that it would toughen in future and call on Amsterdam to spend more money on employment of teachers.

The next strike under the campaign is expected to take place on April 13 in the provinces of Drenthe, Friesland and Groningen.

REVEALED: Threesomes, snog an Uber driver and drink a bong, the shocking sexual and drugs tasks that sorority girls were forced to do on 'scavenger hunt' that got it banned from campus

The scavenger hunt that got a sorority booted from Lehigh University's Pennsylvania campus until 2020 reveals a list of activities women were instructed to partake in, including sexual activities.

The Alpha Chi Omega sorority sisters at Lehigh University were encouraged to 'ski pole two boys' which is slang for manually stimulating two men at once, as well as 'hooking up with an Uber driver.' Another task told participants to drink bong water, and yet another told the women to participate in threesomes.

The list, which was reported by Total Frat Move, was used for a December sorority event and circulated online. The university ruled that the 77 tasks had violated the school's Code of Conduct.

Activist: DeVos’ ‘60 Minutes’ Interview Shows She’s a ‘Clear White Supremacist’

An interview that United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos sat down for with "60 Minutes" journalist Lesley Stahl aired on Sunday - and it was a trainwreck, critics say.

With DeVos struggling to offer sound evidence for how her decisions have improved student performance, critics deemed the interview yet more evidence the Michigan native is unqualified for her job.

Speaking with Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear, Bill Ayers, an activist, educator, and author of the book "Demand the Impossible: A Radical Manifesto," doubled down on the notion that the 60-year-old official "hates public education."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trying to salvage Common Core.

School Daze...

Sunday night was Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’s turn through the CBS 60-Minutes wringer of censure with a visibly frustrated inquisitor Lesley Stahl trying to hector her into self-incrimination.

The sad truth about American schools is that they’re a mirror for the painful collapse of the society they supposedly serve - a process ongoing for decades before Ms. DeVos came on the scene.

The expectation that some uber-regent can or ought to fix public education is bound to disappoint a news media searching for saviors. The further we leave the 20th century behind, the more anomalous its organizing principles look, especially the idea of preparing masses of young people for mass, regimented work at the giant corporate scale.

Universities that censor speech on Palestine pose as champions of protest

Last week, students at the University of Virginia protested during a campus event featuring a group of Israeli soldiers.

The soldiers were part of Reservists on Duty, an organization that aims to counter the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights on US college campuses.

They were brought to campus by Israel-aligned groups in order to “humanize the conflict” – in other words, to distract from Israel’s human rights abuses and help brand the Israeli military as “the most moral army in the world.”

Protesters held signs and chanted slogans including, “Fight the power, turn the tide, end Israeli apartheid.”

Following their action in solidarity with Palestinians living under Israeli military rule, the University of Virginia’s dean of students Allen Groves accused the protesters of violating univerisity rules and hampering free speech.

Masturbation hacks and consent advice: how YouTubers took over sex education

When Lily was at school, she remembers the boys and girls being separated for a sex education class. The boys were given one booklet; the girls another. “In the boys’ booklet, there was a section on masturbation and there wasn’t in the girls’ booklet,” she says. “A girl put her hand up and said: ‘Why don’t we have that?’ and one of the teachers said: ‘Girls don’t do that, that’s disgusting.’ It shouldn’t be a shameful thing to talk about. It can be a bit awkward and embarrassing, but we should be talking about it.”

Gun Control Rallies: How Today’s students have been Brainwashed to prepare for this moment their whole lives

In some ways, today’s students have been preparing for this moment their whole lives. Their educational experiences have been shaped by concepts like collaborative work, project-based learning, real-world scenarios, finding innovative solutions, and the underlying mantra that they can save the world.

In lower elementary, perhaps they’re taken out to a weedy, forgotten corner of campus and asked to imagine a verdant garden thriving in that very spot. And then maybe they’re given tools and seeds and time in their day to make that garden happen.

In middle school they might break into groups and build little cars that run on solar panels or draw designs for water filtration systems to solve the drinking water crisis in faraway countries.

Student barred from class for claiming there are two genders

Lake Ingle said he objected to some of the claims made in a video featuring a transgender woman, and countered by arguing that there are only two genders and that the "gender wage gap" is a myth.

BEN CARSON CATCHES HEAT FOR CUTTING 'FREE FROM DISCRIMINATION' PROMISE OUT OF HUD MISSION

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is being widely condemned for plans to slash anti-discrimination language from HUD's mission statement in favor of language that emphasizes "self-sufficiency."

The revision, first reported by Amanda Terkel at The Huffington Post, was made "in an effort to align HUD's mission with the Secretary's priorities and that of the [Trump] administration," according to a March 5 memo obtained by Terkel.

The new mission statement is:

"HUD's mission is to ensure Americans have access to fair, affordable housing and opportunities to achieve self-sufficiency, thereby strengthening our communities and nation."

The previous version, which promoted creating "inclusive communities...free from discrimination" and is still on the agency's website, was:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think where Dr. Carson "missed the mark" was not combining the two, self-sufficiency, coupled with non-discrimination.

But we have to start with the educational system, in this country, which is still highly discriminatory against children of color, as though they should be consistently satisfied with "less than", and turned out at 17 or 18 illiterate, innumerate, and unable to think critically.

This is why we do seem to have a permanent underclass in this country, created, very cynically, by those political interests which thrive on keeping people dependent on the State; that keeps those people consistently voting in one direction, even when that direction has had a miserable outcome for them, their kids, and their grandkids, if, in fact, they are able to survive the mean streets of America's inner cities.

Does anyone remember the magnificent film, "Stand and Deliver", starring Edward James Olmos, which challenged his Hispanic math students and constantly reminded them that they were descended from the Aztecs, who were brilliant mathematicians, and who were doing math a heck of a lot better than were their European counterparts of the same time period?!?

Every kid in this country, no matter their background, deserves a narrative like that; something to both challenge and inspire; because without it, they become lost in the system.

Although Betsy DeVos, Secretary of Education, appeared to be more than a little tone-deaf, as when she made her appearance at Parkland in Florida, perhaps she has the right idea when it comes to privatizing education.

There are private schools which have a very decent track record at helping kids learn better; Kumon comes to mind here, and parents who feel that their kids are "not getting it" in their public educational programs flock to Kumon and schools like it, to make sure their kids can compete, and get into a good college or trade school when they graduate high school.

Perhaps an institution like Kumon should be given a shot at running a charter school in cities where the problems are the greatest with education, places like Baltimore or Chicago. See what the numbers look like, in terms of kids actually learning, compared to the horrific failures most public schools have become.

But in this century, with the advent, and use of AI, coupled with automation, kids need an entirely different set of tools, when it comes to what jobs in the 21st century are going to look like, and what they will need to compete. Fast food jobs will be all but eliminated, with the advent of technologies like "Flippy" taking the place of humans.

Meet Flippy, your burger-flipping robot

All of America's schools, and those who cobble together curriculum for those schools need to be highly mindful of this.

Arizona university forces speakers to sign pledge they don’t boycott Israel

A professor has filed a lawsuit against Arizona State University and the state’s attorney general over a gross violation of free speech rights.

It is the second legal challenge to Arizona’s 2016 law against supporters of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign for Palestinian rights.

The Muslim Students Association at Arizona State University had invited American Muslims for Palestine chair, University of California at Berkeley lecturer Hatem Bazian, to speak about Palestine and the BDS campaign during an event on campus next month.

In order to participate, Bazian and other members of his group who had been invited were asked to sign the university’s speakers agreement – usually a boilerplate legal document outlining the terms of an event.

But Arizona State University’s agreement includes a clause that speakers must certify they are not engaged with the BDS movement.

Christian group sues Michigan university after it is kicked off campus

A Christian student group is suing a Michigan college after being stripped of its official recognition solely because it required its religious leaders to embrace Christianity.

After 75 years on campus, Wayne State University unconstitutionally de-recognized InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in October, because the group requires its leaders to be Christians, according to a lawsuit filed in federal court yesterday.

“I believe they were unfair and discriminatory,” Lori Windham, senior legal counsel at Becket, representing InterVarsity, told Fox News. “The university let dozens of other student groups choose student leaders according to their beliefs. There’s no reason to single out InterVarsity because of its Christian beliefs.”

Universities are demanding professors disavow BDS before being allowed to speak on campus

Last year, in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the city of Dickinson, a suburb of Houston, Texas, required its residents to sign a form affirming they do not engage in a boycott of Israel as a pre-requisite to obtaining federal relief aid. The ACLU sharply criticized the requirement as unconstitutional, and the city of Dickinson eventually rescinded it for individuals, while maintaining that state agencies are blocked from contracting with, or investing in, companies that boycott Israel. Texas is one of more than 20 states that have passed anti-BDS laws, with Texas governor Greg Abbott declaring that “Anti-Israel Policies are anti-Texas policies.”

Teacher Coalition Seeks to End Obama School Discipline Policy: ‘A Lot of Fear in Schools’

The school discipline policy that may have allowed Nikolas Cruz to escape arrest by Broward County law enforcement and ultimately purchase the firearm he used to kill 17 people is in effect in over 50 school districts across the country.

“He probably wouldn’t have been able to buy the murder weapon if the school had referred him to law enforcement,” veteran FBI agent Michael Biasello told RealClearInvestigations (RCI).

In 2014, the Obama administration issued a “Dear Colleague” guidance that threatened school districts – whose disciplinary measures showed a disproportionately greater number of minority students affected – could be subject to investigation by the Departments of Justice and Education, regardless of whether the behaviors leading to the discipline were unacceptable.

DC High School Graduation Rate To Plummet From 73% To 42% After Massive Fraud Revealed

Far fewer seniors attending D.C. Public Schools are on track to earn their diplomas this June after a graduation fraud investigation revealed that one in three students passed high school in violation of city policy.

Data released Thursday by D.C. Public Schools show that just 42 percent of seniors are on track to graduate, vs. 73 percent in 2017. Meanwhile, 19 percent of students are considered "moderately off track," meaning they are failing one or two courses but could potentially earn a diploma through summer school or credit recovery programs.

Even if all 19% of "moderately off track" students receive diplomas, the graduate is still tracking 12 percentage points lower than last year.

The investigation into the fraud showed that students who were unqualified due to missing too many classes or improperly taking makeup classes were allowed to graduate.

Adding to the mess, over a quarter of freshmen have "withdrawn or transferred" out of the D.C. Public Schools system.

Gun Rights Don't Come From The Second Amendment

Whenever there is a gun massacre, statists inevitably respond that it’s time to repeal the Second Amendment. The idea is that if the Second Amendment is gone, so will be the right to own guns in the United States. There is just one big problem with that position: It’s wrong. The Second Amendment, like the First Amendment, doesn’t give anyone any rights. Instead, it prohibits the federal government from infringing on rights that are natural and God-given and that preexist government.

Students claim square root symbol looks like gun, sparks police investigation

A student at Oberlin High School in Louisiana was investigated and his home was searched after he allegedly made comments interpreted as possible terrorist threats when comparing the square root math symbol to a gun.

According to local news station KATC, an investigation by the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday revealed the incident began when one student drew the square root symbol while completing a math problem in class.

Another student then made a comment on the likeness of the sign to a gun, sparking opinions and comments from multiple students.

Authorities then say the student being investigated made a comment that could be interpreted as a threat when taken out of context.

Yale Offers Course to Counteract “Whiteness” in Society

Yale University, one of America's prestigious Ivy League institutions, is offering a course this semester designed to guide students through an examination of the “construction and counternarratives around whiteness.”

As reported by TheCollegeFix.com, the goal of the new course is to “help students understand and counteract 'whiteness,' exploring such topics as 'white imagination,' 'white property' and 'white speech.'”

The course, entitled “Constructions of Whiteness,” is being offered by Yale's English department, which describes the class as an “interdisciplinary approach to examining our understanding of whiteness.” Taught by Professor Claudia Rankine, the course will deal with whiteness “as a culturally constructed and economically incorporated entity, which touches upon and assigns value to nearly every aspect of American life and culture.”

'If your child is a lazy toerag, I'll tell them' Headteacher defends snowflake blog post

The headmaster of exclusive £34,000-per-year boarding school, Gresham’s School in Norfolk, was hit with a wave of criticism when he blogged about how students lacked “grit”

Douglas Robb, whose blog features on the school’s official website, wrote children are not to blame.

The head of the 800 pupil school said: “They have been advertised to since birth; they have had credit and loans on a plate; they have been overly mollycoddled; and they have been overwhelmed by a strange combination of fictional sit-com characters, reality TV and social media stars, who paint a picture of perfection to be achieved.

Oregon’s ‘School Exclusion Day’ Bans Unvaccinated Kids From Schools

Today is school exclusion day in Oregon. The public school district will be banning children from attending their classes if they are not fully vaccinated.

The word they are looking for here is “segregation.” But Oregonians are calling it “School Exclusion Day.” As noted by the state’s Health Authority, “parents must provide schools, child care facilities with kids’ vaccine records”. If their “records on file show missing immunizations”, their “children will not be able to attend school or child care” from this date forth.

According to Newsweek, today’s the day that, you won’t be given an education if you’re a child in Oregon and you don’t have a suite of vaccinations (including MMR, Polio, Hepatitis B, and more.) Similar enforcement initiatives are in operation in other states, from Texas to Illinois.

LGBT sex education – Corbyn backs classroom changes

Gay sex should be part of the national curriculum, according to Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour Party leader backed the coverage of same-sex relationships in schools during an interview on Will Young’s Homo Sapiens podcast.

Currently sex education solely focuses on heterosexual couples practicing safe sex and healthy relationships. Teachers are not instructed to address the LGBTQ sexual experience.

During his appearance on the podcast, which was covered by the Gay Times, Corbyn asserted that he is fully behind a reform of the way sex, especially gay sex, is taught in schools. “Sex education should involve same-sex as well as heterosexual relationships – it’s about relationships.”

Local Police Let Florida Shooter Off The Hook When He Said He Was "Going To Get His Gun"

CNN's FOIA of Broward County 911 records has produced a steady stream of scoops about Parkland, Fla. school shooter Nikolas Cruz fleshing out much of what is publicly known about Cruz's background and the various reports made warning the FBI and other authorities about his threatening behavior.

The report draws on one specific incident that unfolded in the immediate aftermath of Cruz's mother's death, when Cruz and his brother Zachary Cruz were living in Palm Beach County with Rocxanne Deschamps, a former neighbor who had been close to the family.

After one particularly violent outburst, Cruz said he was going to Dick's to pick up the AR-15 he had recently paid for, and that he would come back to attack her.

The police were warned by Deschamps, who told them about Cruz's violent past - that he'd "used a gun against people before" and had "put the gun to others' heads in the past" - but still they did nothing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

With all these threats of violence against others a lietmotif in his life, his kid was screaming for an intervention.

He should have been placed in a locked mental facility, with his prescriptions thoroughly evaluated for what they were contributing to his behaviour, and any and all guns confiscated by the police after a legal warrant was issued to search the house.

Anyone on these kinds of medications should NEVER have been able to pass a background check in the first place, period, end of discussion.

Literacy has only been common (outside the elite) since the 19th century. And it's hardly been crystallized since then. Our habits of reading could easily become antiquated.

Those old, solitary experiences with literature were "just a side-effect of living in an environment of impoverished access." In our online world, we can move on.

FIVE MAJOR REVELATIONS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS IGNORING ABOUT THE FLORIDA SHOOTING

One of the deadliest school shootings in American history took place this week in Parkland, Florida and the suspected gunman has since confessed to this most heinous act. As details unfold, however, the mainstream media is failing to ask the hard questions which need to be answered.

While the media frantically attempts to use Nikolas Cruz to push their political agenda, bombshell revelations are being ignored, perhaps deliberately.

While corporate media continues to use this incident to ram divide down society’s throat and push for gun confiscation, those of us in the alternative media world are asking questions that matter. The Free Thought Project has compiled a list of five major details about the shooting that took place Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that the media is conveniently choosing to ignore.

5. CRUZ WAS REPORTEDLY TAKING ANTIDEPRESSANTS

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have never taken a journey to this blog, I strongly suggest you do, particularly if your medical professional (a.k.a, a "legal drug pusher") is advising you that your teenager desperately needs anti-anxiety medication, and right the heck now. This site can be seen at:

www.ssristories.com

What the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors have been documented to do, is cause suicidal, or homicidal thoughts, which can get translated into very real, horrific destruction of life, as we saw in the Florida shooting last week.

Please remember; many Doctors are given "compensation", either covert, or overt, for prescribing various drugs from the pharmaceutical companies which manufacture them, some times for uses the FDA has not approved.

It is a completely reasonable question to ask, when these kinds of drugs are suggested for your child: is the prescribing physician being compensated for prescribing these drugs by the drug manufacturer?!?

Remind your doctor about the dustup when Pfizer was compensating Doctors to push Neurontin for off-label uses (Gabapentin)

Gabapentin Side Effects

The article goes on to state: "Pfizer, the manufacturer of the brand name Neurontin, got into major trouble when it marketed this drug for off-label uses. A company has historically not been allowed to promote a medicine for things that the FDA has not approved. In Pfizer’s case, these unofficial uses for Neurontin included bipolar disorder, alcohol withdrawal, migraines and pain. The company eventually paid $430 million in penalties and admitted to fraudulent promotion.

And here is a companion piece you probably should read as well:

Mind-Altering Drug Makers Fund Anti-Gun Agenda

"It isn’t surprising the mainstream media – and late night entertainers – focus on guns instead of SSRIs linked to mass shootings given that they’re well-funded by drug makers.
Virtually every suspected mass shooter was on psychiatric drugs, yet the mainstream media – which is funded by Big Pharma ad revenue – conveniently buries this fact.

That’s likely because Big Pharma spent nearly $6 billion on TV, magazine and digital advertisements in 2016 alone, a healthy sum ad-dependent news outlets cannot ignore.

In fact, the media is so dependent on this ad revenue that some outlets have even launched “health content businesses” to attract consumers targeted by Big Pharma."

HAWAII BILL WOULD REQUIRE BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR PARENTS WHO HOMESCHOOL

Legislation has been introduced in the Hawaii State Senate which, if passed, would require homeschooling parents to undergo background checks.
State Senator Kaialii Kahele’s bill is a reaction to several “high-profile abuse cases,” according to World’s Leigh Jones. The state’s Child Welfare Services would conduct reviews on parents wishing to homeschool their children.

“If a parent that has a history of abuse and neglect wants to pull the child out of school and remove them from that layer of protection, this piece of legislation would close that loophole,” Kahele said.

Currently, the 50th state requires parents who homeschool to meet state curriculum standards, submit annual progress reports, and maintain records.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Home schooling is not the problem; the vile state of education in Hawaii is the culprit, and a big issue here is how schools are funded.

Why Hawaii Schools are No Paradise for Teachers

The article goes on to state:

"Because the DOE’s budget comes out of the state’s general fund, public schools are chronically underfunded, which leads to low teacher salaries, high turnover, and poor student outcomes, Rosenlee says. (Of course, disparities in property values also have contributed to vastly unequal funding for the nation’s public schools.) According to WalletHub, which adjusts for cost of living, Hawaii pays its teachers the least of any state.

This is partly why Hawaii has so much trouble finding teachers. According to the most recent data, only 52 percent of the state’s public school teachers are still teaching after five years. “The amount of teachers that are leaving our system is dramatically increasing, [while] the amount of teachers that are going into the profession in Hawaii is dramatically decreasing,” Rosenlee says. “[Some students] will go years without having a licensed teacher in the classroom.”

By the time kids graduate from most public schools, they barely know how to read or write English.

Over 5,000 elementary school kids suspended in Toronto for out-of-date immunization records

A total of 5,063 public elementary students were suspended in Toronto this school year after getting caught in what one doctor called, a “1970s-style, cumbersome process” over immunization records.

The number of students suspended amounted to 7 per cent of the 73,262 elementary students in 586 Toronto public elementary schools assessed by Toronto Public Health from July to mid-December 2017. That’s a jump from 5.6 per cent last year.

“All of the students who were suspended either didn’t meet the immunization requirements as they were not up-to-date, their records were not filed on time, or they did not have a valid exemption,” said Dr. Vinita Dubey, associate medical officer at Toronto Public Health.

Ron Paul: Bitcoin vs. The Fed - Naomi Brockwell

Published on Feb 10, 2018 - At the Satoshi Roundtable in Cancun this year I got to sit down with the amazing Ron Paul and discuss why cryptocurrency is important. Dr Paul is a hero of the liberty movement especially because of the work he's done to spread awareness about the problems of government-controlled money and the federal reserve, so he is a huge inspiration for many of those involved with cryptocurrency. It was amazing to have him with us at the roundtable.
