High School Graduate Gets the Soviet Treatment

A high school graduate with a 4.3 GPA who is going to Harvard is not only barred from giving his valedictorian speech, but is forced into a psych evaluation. The last time I wrote about someone being evaluated to see if there was anything wrong with their psychological condition, the person was a police officer who was telling the truth about his fellow officers. It seems that officers use the old Stalinist tactic of questioning the mental health of people who are not cooperating. I’m somewhat Read more […]

Mother Shackled because Son Didn’t Have Doctor’s Note

A sick son on the honor role who missed “too many” days of school gets a mother shackled by police. Our schools are beachheads for the state to launch totalitarian invasions. When you see a mother shackled, you are witnessing the state claim that this person is a dangerous criminal. No “rhetoric” about “procedure” can change or soften that fact. Giles is facing charges because her son missed more days of school than the school “allows.” According to her, the uneducated delinquent Read more […]

How the State Grows an Underclass: a Teacher’s Testimony

A teacher who writes about her experience in a Title I school has given us a glimpse of the perpetuation of an underclass. I didn’t see this essay until yesterday, so it is ancient history in internet time. But if you haven’t read it, I think you should. Parts are beautiful but it is mostly enraging and frustrating: “What I Wish I Could Tell Them about Teaching in a Title I School.” I’m in my fifth year of teaching English at a Title I middle school. Title I schools are public schools Read more […]

God’s Education Plan

One of the unanswered questions with the riots in Baltimore is who was behind the aggressive social media campaign to organize a “purge” that would start at the Mondawmin Mall at precisely 3 PM on a Monday afternoon? The spark that ignited that Monday’s pandemonium it appears started with high school students on social media, who were discussing a “purge” — a reference to a film in which laws are suspended for a specific period of time. Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby told Read more […]

Girls Told Wearing Rosaries Not Allowed in Public School

Are rosaries not allowed due to guilt by association or for secularist reasons or what? When you read the headline, it sounds like a secular attack on Roman Catholics. It isn’t quite that bad, though it is even more stupid. From KOB4: “Farmington Schools: Rosaries ‘inappropriate’ at school, against dress code.” For many, the rosary is a symbol of the Catholic faith. But one mom says her daughters are getting sent to the principal’s office just because they’re wearing theirs to school. “She Read more […]

Why do Kids Repel God?

Perhaps because “education” was designed to repel God. Just last week at the Supreme Court building in Washington D.C., I had the opportunity to speak to a small group of students who were on a field trip to the nation’s capital.  What I experienced stunned and disheartened me momentarily.  These charming, smart, and ambitious students repelled any connection between their rights and the existence and the authority of God and His Word. Even when I quoted the Declaration of Independence: Read more […]

Baltimore Public Schools Are Not Close to Underfunded!

The pretense that rioting and looting is the responsibility of those who haven’t allowed enough funds to go to Baltimore Public Schools is ludicrous. Since Bob Allen quoted a news story about Democrat Representative Donna Edwards claiming that Baltimore public schools need more money, I think it might be good to point out how insane such claims really are. Here’s the quotation: “I mean I would say, for example with our schools, just prior to the Freddie Gray incident, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Read more […]

The Hypocritical Education President

Barack Obama plays the education president by extolling school for children but fights school choice and uses private school. Here is how President Barack Obama’s weekly address began on Saturday (including the introductory explanation): In this week’s address, the President reiterated his commitment to expanding access to education, and to spreading the joy of reading to more children and young adults.  Earlier this week the President announced two new efforts that, building on the progress Read more […]

Teacher Reprimands Parent for School Lunch

When a teacher thinks it is her job to correct parents on their lunch choices, we need to ask where she got the idea that was her job. ABC Breaking US News | US News Videos Maybe you don’t think children should eat Oreos. Maybe you don’t care. But the wonderful way the world works is that what food your children eat is between you and them. It doesn’t involve you making decisions for what my children eat or me making decisions about what your children get for lunch. So where does Read more […]

Public Education & Barack Obama’s Crusade Comments

Public education is responsible for Obama’s Crusade comments and flaws in foreign policy. President Obama is one of many modern presidents whose foreign policy has disappointed because of flawed educational policies and political correctness. Once educational systems stopped teaching the basic tenets of the major religions and how those tenets shaped a nation’s government and social institutions, the quality of America’s foreign policy was weakened. A comprehensive analysis of religions Read more […]

Wall Street Journal Pushes Back Against Transgender Delusion

Thus far three states have passed laws forbidding psychiatrists from trying to help children get rid of the feeling that they are different than their gender. These laws are based on superstition. The entire civil rights industry that has sprung up to “support” the alleged “transgender” has the intellectual depth and methods of a cult. Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, writes about his own institution’s history with so-called “sexual reassignment” Read more […]

Father Threatened with Loss of Custody Because Son Twirled Pencil in Class

If we allow ourselves to be treated this way, we will be treated this way. As you may remember, back in April I posted about the student who, while twirling his pencil, was accused of making gun gestures with it in class by a hostile student. Here’s one of the newscasts. According to Reason.com’s blog, the superintendent claimed he was never actually suspended, just kept out of class for two days for a proper psychological interrogation. But the real scandal is far worse than the Read more […]
