Yale University teaches students ‘counternarratives around whiteness’

Yale University is offering a course this semester which aims to help students understand and counteract “whiteness,” exploring such topics as “white imagination,” “white property” and “white speech.”

According to the syllabus for “Constructions of Whiteness” obtained by The College Fix, the English course is an “interdisciplinary approach to examining our understanding of whiteness.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what kind of jobs does this course qualify students for after they graduate?

I Have Forgotten How to Read

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. The writer Clay Shirky even suggests that we've lately been "emptily praising" Tolstoy and Proust. 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. And our brains – only temporarily hijacked by books – will now be hijacked by whatever comes next.

Expert says 'active shooter' drills are good for even young students

This is Lunacy. According to many students they were told they would have an active shooter drill at the high school in Florida.

PORTLAND, Ore. — We all know what to do during a fire drill, but today, students face a whole new battery of drills that most adults never had to worry about.

In the wake of Wednesday's deadly school shooting in Florida, it's clear that those drills will become a normal part of many students' routines.

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.

Is College Worth The Cost?

By Jeff Paul

The individual debt for college graduates in the United States is now above $30,000. Meanwhile, all of the world’s knowledge is nearly free because of the Internet. And we’re transitioning from a jobs economy to a skills economy. So we’re at a unique crossroads that creates a new paradigm for teenagers and their parents where college may not be a guaranteed path to a better life. But what choices do we have?...

National Anthem removed from California High School's rallies

A leadership class at California High School in San Ramon made the decision to no longer include the national anthem as part of the school’s pep rallies, citing racial controversy at a school where vandals had once trashed the bathroom with signs of "whites" and "colored."

The move is an effort to combat racism at the school, but it also has other students upset.

Student Dennis Fiorentinos contacted KTVU, to voice his upset that the “Star Spangled Banner” was not sung at the recent winter rally.

US professor fired after telling student ‘Australia isn’t a country’

Southern New Hampshire University has fired a lecturer who insisted that Australia was a continent – but not a country – and took some time to conduct “independent research” into the issue before reviewing a student’s paper.
Ashley Arnold, 27, who is studying toward an online sociology degree at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU), was “shocked” to learn she had failed an assignment, part of which required students to compare social norms between the United States and any other country – in her case Australia. Arnold was downgraded because her professor believed “Australia is a continent; not a country.”

TRYING TO DELIVER "FAILING" GRADE TO BETSY DEVOS, TEACHERS LOCKED OUT OF EDUCATION DEPT

Teachers' groups, parents, and students were barred from entering the Department of Education on Thursday, the anniversary of Betsy DeVos's confirmation as Education Secretary, to present her with a "Failing" report card alongside tens of thousands of comments from teachers who disapprove of her performance leading the nation's public education system.

"This is a remarkable moment...this is the first time that I have ever been to this building where we were not let in."—Randi Weingarten, AFT President

In categories including protection of civil rights and equality in schools and ensuring funding for low-income students and children of color DeVos received "F" grades across the board.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I found this blocking teachers from the building in which DeVos works more than a little heavy handed.

But let's back up, and think this one through, shall we?!?

What have popped up , dotting the US landscape in the last 20 years, are private schools, used by caring parents to "fill in the gaps" in their kid's education, or get their kids learning better, when the public schools have failed their children miserably.

And so what if these schools are franchised, when their approach seems to be doing the job of educating kids, and well?!? I have no problem with this.

Kumon Schools and Mathanasium come to mind, but there are many others.

Why not create one private school in a city like Baltimore, or Detroit, where public education has gone horribly awry:

In public Detroit schools, 93% are not proficient at math; 96% not proficient in Reading

In Baltimore School, Grade Rigging Scandal Escalates, School's CEO issues a memo to Respond

IF programs like those offered by private schools can actually work in cities like this, THEY CAN WORK ANYWHERE IN THIS COUNTRY.

And remember; these very unionized teachers are utterly terrified of losing their jobs if the privatization go forward.

And do you have any idea of how hard it is get a non-performing union-member teacher to be fired from a public school?!?

The short answer is, painfully hard.

UK Education Giant Unveils Hard-Left, Identity Politics-Pushing LGBT Classroom Programme

Announcing an ‘LGBT-inclusive’ update to all of its products, education giant Pearson has launched a guide to pushing ‘social justice’ activism in every part of the school curriculum.
‘Creating an LGBT-Inclusive Curriculum’ was produced by LGBT activist group Stonewall and is sponsored by Pearson, which owns the exam board Edexcel and publishes thousands of school textbooks as one of the UK’s biggest education companies.

Claiming an inclusive curriculum is “a crucial part of tackling” homophobic bullying in schools, the handbook advises ways in which teachers can alter lessons across the syllabus so LGBT pupils “see themselves represented in what they’re learning”.

Writing about the need to stamp out anti-LGBT bullying in a foreword to the guide, the senior vice-president for schools at Pearson UK, Sharon Hague, said: “LGBT students will only feel comfortable to be themselves if they also get to see themselves in their classrooms.”

CALIFORNIA OVERREACTS AND PRESUMES EVERY HOMESCHOOLING PARENT IS A CHILD ABUSER

California is seeking to treat homeschool families as presumptive child abusers. Lawmakers in that state have indicated plans to categorically require homeschool parents to prove — through home visits, interviews, and other government oversight — that indeed the parent is not abusive if they choose to exercise a legally protected and valid option for school choice. This measure would shift the burden to the parent to prove to the government’s satisfaction his or her parental fitness.

This is absurdly unconstitutional.

But in light of the remarkably horrifying case of Riverside County couple David and Louise Turpin, whose 13 children were reportedly chained, malnourished, and clearly abused, the media and lawmakers have chosen to focus on one coincidental detail — the Turpins were also registered as homeschoolers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Intelligent, and caring home-school providers are under threat everywhere in this country, and that ... is a damned shame.

Most home-schooled kids wind up far smarter, and far ahead, intellectually, of their public-schooled contemporaries; and that is JUST what states, and the Federal Government, loathe; a kid with the capacity for the kind of critical thinking which can see through government propaganda, and understnd the nature of its agenda, in a hearbeat.

Critics rip University of California for favoring illegal immigrants over out-of-state Americans

A California university’s decision to put a limit on the number of American citizens it enrolls -- while placing no such restrictions on illegal immigrants who want to attend the school -- is drawing sharp criticism from education activists.

The regents in the University of California system recently instituted Regents Policy 2109 in response to state lawmakers threatening to withhold from the university system nearly $20 million if school officials didn’t cap the number of out-of-state American students. The university's response to the state government’s threat was to limit the percentage of out-of-state American students in the student body to 18 percent on most campuses.

The move is being criticized as discriminatory against Americans.

WATCH: COP ATTACKS HANDCUFFED SCHOOL GIRL, VIOLENTLY SLAMS HER INTO THE CONCRETE

A school resource officer is under fire after a video was released online that showed him slamming a female student to the ground and then handcuffing her, while two other men stood nearby and did nothing to intervene.

After the video went viral, the La Mesa Police Department responded in a statement, claiming that the 17-year-old girl was “arrested by a La Mesa Police School Resource Officer for refusing to obey a lawful order to leave school grounds and resisting arrest.”

The department claimed that the video released online showed a small segment of an encounter in which “Helix High School staff requested the assistance of the School Resource Officer to remove a student, who was on suspended status and non-compliant with staff directions to leave the campus.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to "education" in public schools in Amerika, where the State's Representative can slam a kid's head into the floor with absolutely no real provocaton or cause whatsoever, and there will be absolutely no repercussions for that "Resource Officer".

Were I a parent at Helix High, I would pull my kid out of that school so quickly that the principal's head spin.

Before I did this, however, I would be researching the nearest "magnet schools", private schools, and home schooling groups where my kid would at least be educated, and where teachers and principals, working to gether with families, want to keep parents in the loop consistently.

And if all parents here did this, the school would no longer receive the Federal or California State grants which fund it, and the school, ultimately, would have to shut down.

Parents have more power than they realize; but they need to be ready to "come up to the plate" and use it wisely and morally, in defense of their kids.

What do you need to know about your VPN service: Is it really safe?

Unfortunately, not all popular VPN services provide anonymity.

VPN is, in a sense, a tunnel through which encrypted data is transmitted. Your ISP does not have the ability to see which sites you visit, what you type in, etc. Also, the site you are visiting receives not your real IP address, but the VPN server address. It would seem that there is nothing to worry about. In fact, it's not like that.

Currently, commercial providers offer the following VPN protocols:

PPTP is used most widely, fast, easy to configure, but is considered "least secure" compared to the rest.

L2TP + IPSec. L2TP provides “transportation”, and IPSec is responsible for encryption. This bundle has stronger encryption than PPTP. It does not have most vulnerabilities that PPTP has. It also provides message integrity and each party authentication.

Betsy DeVos Bans ‘Toxic’ Common Core Program

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has banned Common Core from being taught in U.S. schools after the Obama-era program was found to dumb down American kids.

Prior to her announcement, some schools had already taken it upon themselves to dump the Common Core program, which saw significant improvements in test results afterwards.

America's schools ‘profoundly unequal’: Study

America's schools are “profoundly unequal,” with low-income, minority students ending up in schools with crumbling walls, old textbooks and unqualified teachers, according to a new report by the US government.

The US Commission on Civil Rights released the report on Thursday, urging Congress to take “bold action” to address inequitable funding in the country’s public school system.

“Although the United States Supreme Court ruled in 1954 that public education is a right that should be available to all on equal terms, the longstanding and persistent reality is that vast funding inequities in our state public education systems render the education available to millions of American public school students profoundly unequal,” the report states.
