The parents of a 14-year-old girl who was allowed to secretly change gender at school have accused teachers of making a huge mistake by keeping them in the dark after she was bullied, assaulted in the boys' restroom - and ultimately ran away and into the hands of an abusive online groomer.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has had a victory in the fight against far-left political propaganda in the state's African American History AP course. After DeSantis' criticism of the course, The College Board was forced to edit the controversial parts of the curriculum.

The course, which was initially designed to teach students about the history and culture of African American people, was found to have included elements of far-left political propaganda. This prompted DeSantis to call for the course to be changed or removed from the state's AP courses.

Four young girls were sexually assaulted by a male teacher while at school in Michigan, authorities said.

Three of the students were blindfolded during the assaults, officials said, and the other girl was assaulted multiple times during her vision tests.

According to the alumni lawsuit, Cornwell continually selected specifically “racially and sexually inappropriate musicals” for her theater classes to perform.

Indiana lawmakers are trying again to pass a Republican-backed proposal to make school board elections partisan despite opposition from school board members and education advocates from across the state.

Candidates running for school boards would be required to identify as a Republican, Democrat or Independent, according to the legislation.
