Thought for the day

"Evil cannot create anything new, they can only corrupt and ruin what good forces have invented or made." -- J.R.R. Tolkien

When I was a student, school principles and university administrations were very supportive of teachers. It was understood that once teachers could be accused by students, learning discipline would break down, and control would be lost over grading, standards, and course content.

This is what has happened. A teacher’s life has changed from imparting information and challenging ideas to students into dodging accusations from leftists, feminists, blacks, homosexuals, and transgendered. Today even use of a gender pronoun can be cause for termination.

Many parents are running for school boardshomeschooling, and even pushing for a legislative crackdown to defend their children from transgender, queer, and other sexual activists in the classroom.

The craziest, most radical people in society are now teaching your kids.
Think of that?

The latest Minnesota Teachers Union contract stipulates that the white teachers will be laid off first.

This has nothing to do with seniority or quality of work. It is now all about skin color.

A former Boston public high school dean and alleged Latin Kings recruiter pleaded guilty Tuesday to racketeering charges according to a news release from the US Attorney's Office for the district of Massachusetts.

A California teacher who bragged about using his position to radicalize students into far-left “revolutionaries” has been given three years of pay by his school district to resign, according to a report.

The CA 9th-12th grade literature list contains 0 books written before 2016 (no classics). It has books by Michelle Obama, Ibram Kendi, and Trevor Noah.


FL 9th-12th list has Crime & Punishment, Hamlet, Night, Dante's Inferno, 1984, and Animal Farm.


The difference is shocking!

The smartphone has begun to play a huge role In dumbing down America. Rather than being a source to move us forward, it has become an albatross around the necks of many weak-minded souls that depend on them. People turn to these devices for all kinds of unneeded updates including performing simple math problems so they don't have to think. 

American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten has been dialing up the political rhetoric as children across the country get ready for another school year. Ms. Weingarten hit on just about everything at the latest union conference.

Everything, that is, except for the actual issue of educating America’s children. It seems odd for someone who claims to care so deeply for the intellectual growth of the next generation of leaders.
