Liberal University openly bemoans presence of white students.

Racist U 500

A school-wide questionnaire at Western Washington University (WWU) asked the community “How do we make sure that in future years ‘we are not as white as we are today?’”

The question, released through the communications and marketing department’s daily newsletter Western Today, comes on the heels of admonishments given in multiple convocation addresses by WWU President Bruce Shepard for the university’s “failure” to be less white.

“Every year, from this stage and at this time, you have heard me say that, if in decades ahead, we are as white as we are today, we will have failed as university,” Shepard said in the 2012 speech.

And in a recent blog post on WWU’s website, Shepard echoes these sentiments, saying those who do not agree “have not thought through the implications of what is ahead for us or, more perniciously, assume we can continue unchanged.”

“In the decades ahead, should we be as white as we are today, we will be relentlessly driven toward mediocrity; or, become a sad shadow of our current self,” he wrote.

Chicago Teachers Union to Mayor Rahm: Improving failed schools full of black kids is RACIST

Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis

Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis

In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods. The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller.

Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools. Still reeling from the closure of 50 schools in 2013, embattled Chicago Teachers Union Karen Lewis called the turnaround plan “a slap in the face to those of us who are attempting to negotiate for more resources” and “nothing more than school closings by another name.”

The email from the teachers union also suggested that the effort to improve the schools is an effort spearheaded by Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett to damage black children and black families.

“This is an attack on Black schools that continues the assault carried out by” Byrd-Bennett “last year, when she closed 50 schools (claiming they were the last closings for at least five years).”

Byrd-Bennett is black.

Liberal Education: Special Ed student bullied, tapes bullying, accused of felony wiretapping

bullying-in-schools 500

After being regularly shoved and tripped, and nearly burned with a cigarette lighter, a tormented special-needs student in Pennsylvania decided to take matters into his own hands. He secretly recorded the abuse on his school-issued iPad, and his mother eventually submitted the evidence to the school’s principal. But instead of punishing the teenage tyrants caught on tape, administrators decided to call the police, who threatened the 15-year-old boy with felony wiretapping, but later reduced the charge to disorderly conduct. He was found guilty on March 19.

The Pennsylvania student, a sophomore who remained unnamed in a report on BenSwann.com, was previously diagnosed with comprehension-delay disorder, anxiety disorder and ADHD. In his testimony, he claimed that he decided to record the incident in order to show his mother that he “wasn’t lying” about the ongoing abuse. “I was really having things like books slammed upside my head,” he said. “I wanted it to stop. I just felt like nothing was being done.”

The original recording was suspiciously deleted by school authorities, though as described on BenSwann.com, the boy’s mother, Shea Love, recounted it during the hearing.

According to Love, as the teacher is heard attempting to help her son with a math problem, a student says, “You should pull his pants down!” Another student replies, “No, man. Imagine how bad that (c**t) smells! No one wants to smell that (t**t).” As the recording continues, the teacher instructs the classroom that they may only talk if it pertains to math. Shortly thereafter, a loud noise is heard on the recording, which her son explained was a book being slammed down next to him after a student pretended to hit him in the head with it. When the teacher yells, the student exclaims, “What? I was just trying to scare him!” A group of boys are heard laughing.

After listening to her son’s evidence, Love eventually reported it to the South Fayette High School principal who, instead of disciplining the bullies involved, called the police to interrogate her “visibly distraught” son. When Love arrived, the principal said the student was facing felony wiretapping charges because he had made a recording in a place where there is an expectation of privacy. The officer agreed but eventually reduced the charge to disorderly conduct on the basis that the student engaged in offensive actions “which served no legitimate purpose.”

The states with the most segregated public schools are epicenters of liberalism

segregation-drinking-fountain 500

The state with the most segregated public schools is New York. Other states with exceptionally segregated schools include California, Illinois and Michigan. These findings come from a longitudinal study of enrollment figures conducted by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles. The period studied was 1998 through 2010.

New York, California, Illinois and Michigan are traditionally among the most reliably Democratic states in the union, as an interactive 2012 map created by Slate shows. A 2013 “State of the States” feature by Gallup indicates that New York, California and Illinois are “solid Democratic” strongholds. Michigan leans Democratic. Researchers determined the level of segregation by measuring the exposure of students at a school to students from racial groups different from their own.

In the entire state of New York, approximately half the public school students are white. However, during the 2009-2010 academic year, a typical black kid in the Empire State attended a school where just 17.7 percent of the students were white. In Illinois, the exposure number for black kids was 18.8 percent. In California, it was 18.9 percent.

“In the 30 years I have been researching schools, New York state has consistently been one of the most segregated states in the nation. No Southern state comes close to New York,” Gary Orfield, co-director of the Civil Rights Project and an author of the report, told the AP.

In fact, no Southern state is in the top four.

Girl, 9, barred from school for shaving head to support friend with cancer

cancerschool12 500

With her parents’ approval, Kamryn shaved her head in support of her friend, 11-year-old Delaney, who is battling neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer, and recently started chemotherapy.

However, when Kamryn tried to go back to school at Caprock Academy in Grand Junction this week, she wasn’t allowed in. Turns out, having a shaved head is a violation of the school’s dress code policy. Delaney’s mom, Wendy Campbell, couldn’t believe it.

Kamryn missed school yesterday, because school officials were obstinate in their interpretation and implementation of their rules.

Kamryn’s mother emailed the school explaining why she got the extreme haircut, but administrators said they couldn’t make exceptions. Then the story went viral. School officials now plan to hold an executive session Tuesday to review the policy. In addition, Kamryn has been told she can attend school today.

Teachers Union Claims Ignorance of Anti-Christian Claus In Written Hiring Contract

ferndalepic 500

A Michigan school district’s written policy of giving hiring preference to non-Christians has been scrapped after more than 30 years, and officials say they have no idea how the clause – which they insist was never invoked – ever made it into the teachers’ union contract.

The teachers union contract in Ferndale Public Schools in Oakland County contained a clause that gave “special consideration” to applicants that are of “the non-Christian faith.” District officials say they didn’t even know about the clause, which the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, a Michigan-based, nonpartisan research and educational institute, found while reviewing teacher contracts in the state’s 200 biggest public school districts.

The clause was meant for current school employees seeking to apply for a vacancy within the district — and made clear that certain “minorities,” including those “of the non-Christian faith” will be given special consideration.

“Earlier this week, Ferndale Public Schools learned of antiquated language in employee contracts that we somehow missed when recently bargaining contracts,” Ferndale Public Schools spokeswoman Shelley Rose said in an e-mail. “This language dates back to at least 1979, and is not in compliance with current legislation. Fortunately, the district also has newer and strong anti-discrimination language in the contracts and has never, in our known history, enacted this now out-of-date language.”

How Are Michigan Teachers Suffering Under Right-to-Work? 8,000 Teachers Refusing to Pay Union Dues

MichiganTeacher 500

In October of last year, the Michigan Education Association (MEA) made the claim that “99 percent” of its members remained happily unionized despite the state’s ten-month-old worker freedom law.

It is true that the union has allowed some teachers to leave without opposition as long as they had filed their separation papers last year in August, the one month during the year that the union claims teachers are “allowed” to leave. State law does not sanction this. It is only a union policy.

Regardless that it is not an enforceable law, the union threatened to send teachers who stopped paying dues to collection agencies. Letters were also sent to all union members that they must hand over bank and credit card account numbers so that the union can automatically deduct dues from their accounts.

As a result, the Mackinac Center, a free market think tank in Michigan, filed a lawsuit against the MEA for attempting to force teachers to stay in the union and to continue to pay dues against their will.

Shortly after the lawsuit was filed the union informed the teachers named in the lawsuit that they were no longer members and back dues were no longer being sought.

The union’s executive director, Gretchen Dziadosz, recently admitted that 8,000 teachers are in arrears with their dues.

School forces half-naked, sopping wet student to stand outside in sub-zero temps

Kayona Hagen-Tietz 500

A Minnesota public high school was so committed to obeying its fire drill policy to the exact letter of the law that it forced a female student–dressed only in a swimsuit, and sopping wet–to stand outside in the freezing cold for ten minutes. As a result, she suffered frostbite.

Administrators wouldn’t let the student retrieve her clothes, sit in a car or wait inside another building, according to WCCO.

It was 5 degrees below zero in St. Paul that day. With the windchill, it was 25 degrees below zero.

The trouble began when a small science experiment triggered the fire alarm at Como Park Senior High School in St. Paul, Minnesota. Fourteen-year-old Kayona Hagen-Tietz was swimming in the school pool for health class at the time. Her clothes were in her locker, and a teacher told her that there was no time for her to change. Hagen-Tietz was rushed outside–still wet and dressed in only swimsuit.

Why in the world do we hire idiots to “educate” our children? Oh, that’s right, WE don’t. The money to pay them is taken from us at gun point and while the Teacher’s Union gets to decide who is hired, the parents whose money was forcibly taken to pay for the mess, have absolutely no voice whatsoever.  Thus complete morons who couldn’t hold a job flipping burgers in the real world are hired to warehouse taxpayers’ children at exorbitant costs. Truth be told most of the truly good teachers are run off by the deluge of paper work the army of administrators each school hires, creates for them.

Obama Wins Fight to Have Christian Homeschool Family Deported; Will You Be Next?

Romeike-family 500

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike came to the United States in 2008 seeking political asylum. They fled their German homeland in the face of religious persecution for homeschooling their children.

They wanted to live in a country where they could raise their children in accordance with their Christian beliefs.

The Romeikes were initially given asylum, but the Obama administration objected – claiming that German laws that outlaw homeschooling do not constitute persecution.

“The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society,” the Justice Department wrote in a legal brief last year. “Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany.”

On Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear the Romeike’s appeal – paving the way for the Christian family of eight to be deported.

“I think this is a part of the Obama administration’s overall campaign to crush religious freedom in this country,” said Michael Farris, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association. His organization is representing family.

What shocking things have government school teachers been up to this week?

Mean-teacher 500

In South Carolina, police arrested middle school choir teacher Elizabeth Marie Moss for allegedly sexually assaulting at least one 13-year-old student. The incident allegedly included oral sex by Moss on the boy.

In Reading, Pa., middle school science teacher Jessica Saienni was arrested on Friday on charges of sexually abusing a 14-year-old student.

In Springfield, Missouri, coach and teacher’s aid Craig Michael Wood, 45, is accused of snatching 10-year-old Hailey Owens from the street and, in front of witnesses, throwing her into his pickup truck. Early Wednesday morning, investigators discovered Hailey’s body in Wood’s house. According to court documents, she had been shot at the base of her skull, and there appeared to be ligature marks on her arms.

In Broken Arrow, Oklahoma a swim coach was arrested for selling drugs to students.

Y’know, you just can’t get socialization like that when you homeschool.

States Attempt to Sneak Failed Common Core Curriculum in by Different Names

Common-Core 500

As fed-up parents across the nation voice their staunch opposition to federal Common Core standards, several states are trying a new approach to appease them… by just changing the name in a “rebranding” effort.

In Iowa, Common Core is now referred to as “The Iowa Core” and as “Next Generation Sunshine State Standards” in Florida. Further, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed an executive order recently to scrub the “Common Core” name from their math and reading standards. Louisiana is also reportedly considering a name change.

“Even under a different name, the Common Core Standards are still mediocre, at best, and continue to put American students at a significant disadvantage to their international peers,” Glyn Wright, executive director of the Eagle Forum said.

Critics argue that Common Core, which was never voted on by Congress, promotes a one-size-fits-all approach to education and takes away control from teachers and local school systems. There have also been problems with Common Core “aligned” lessons and textbooks including liberal and progressive political messages.

Wright had this to say of the tactic: “Rebranding the Common Core does not change the fact that it is still a top-down, federally controlled approach to education that is untested and unproven. We know that Americans will not be fooled by dressing-up this failed initiative.”

Child Interrogated And Suspended After Voluntarily “Turning In” Toy Gun At School

child arrested 500

In yet another case of ‘zero tolerance’ insanity in schools, an 11-year-old boy was interrogated without the knowledge of his parents, and then suspended after he accidentally brought a plastic toy gun to school.

What makes this case stand out is that fact that 6th grader, Caden Cook, actually knew he shouldn’t have brought the toy with him to school and voluntarily turned it in, after finding he’d accidentally left it in his jacket pocket.

Instead of using their common sense, officials at Fredrick Funston Elementary School in Chicago freaked out and subjected him to interrogation and intimidation tactics, threats and accusations of lying, according to a report by The Rutherford Institute, a rights group whose attorneys have taken up the case.

The further fact that school officials in Caden’s case did not even alert the boy’s parents before questioning him in such an aggressive manner is equally as disturbing. The Rutherford report also indicates that when the boy’s mother was finally called in, she was berated and accused of being a bad parent for allowing her son to play with toy guns, whether it be in or out of school.
