Teacher to student: If you don’t support gay marriage, drop my class

angry-woman 500x200

The young man, who asked not to be identified, explained what happened when his ethics instructor, Cheryl Abbate, led a conversation in “Theory of Ethics” class about applying philosophical theories to modern political controversies. There were a list of issues on the board – gay rights, gun rights, and the death penalty.

“We had a discussion on all of them – except gay rights,” the student told me. “She erased that line from the board and said, ‘We all agree on this.’”

Well, as it so happened – the student did not agree with instructor Abbate.

So after class he approached the instructor and told her he thought they should have discussed the issue of gay rights. He also recorded their conversation — without her permission.

“Are you saying if I don’t agree with gays not being allowed to get married that I’m homophobic?” the student asked.

“I’m saying it would come off as a homophobic comment in this class,” the teacher replied.

“There are some opinions that are not appropriate – that are harmful – such as racist opinions, sexist opinions,” she said.

“You can have whatever opinions you want but I will tell you right now – in this class homophobic comments, racist comments, sexist comments will not be tolerated,” she said. ‘If you don’t like it, you are more than free to drop this class.”

So the student dropped the class.

It was one sentence in a letter sent home from Smith Elementary School in Hampton that took parent Cheriss Pasini by surprise, stating “White Students” didn’t meet last year’s reading requirements on the SOLs.

“The kids brought it home. My boyfriend was like, ‘Wait a minute. White kids? White students?’ I was like ‘What wait?’ I have never seen anything like that before in my life.

A school spokesperson explained the email by saying, “Hampton City Schools follows federal guidelines that specify that parents must be notified of the school’s identification as a Title I school that has missed one or more annual measurable objectives.  The two specific objectives were ones that were not met by Smith Elementary.”

“What are they teaching the kids in school? Are they segregating them? Whites? Blacks? I just didn`t like it one bit,” Pasini said. “I understand it’s done by the federal whatever, I just wish there was a better way to word it moving forward.”

Iraqi Veteran Kicked Out of His Own Kid’s School For Objecting to Muslim Proselytization

La-Plata 500x200

A former Marine who served in Iraq says he’s been banned from his daughter’s Maryland high school after a heated argument over a lesson on Islam.

Kevin Wood told MyFoxDC.com that he went to La Plata High School in La Plata, a town about 30 miles southeast of Washington, and challenged a history assignment requiring students to list the benefits of Islam. He said the meeting with the vice principal got heated; the school said he made a threat and banned the Iraq veteran from school property.

“I have witnesses that have said I did not threaten anybody,” he told the station. “I don’t force my religious views on them, so don’t force your religious views on me.”

The three-page assignment asked questions including, “How did Muslim conquerors treat those they conquered?”

A homework assignment obtained by MyFoxDC.com showed the “correct” answer was, “With tolerance, kindness and respect,” an absolute lie.

Tennessee School Partners With “Nation of Islam” to Teach Children That Founding Fathers Were All Racist, Evil Men

Nation-of-Idiots-er-Islam-handout 500x200

By Fox News commentator Todd Starnes.

The mother of an eight-year-old wants to know why a Tennessee school teacher gave her child a handout from the Nation of Idiots… Islam that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.

Sommer Bauer tells me her son was given The Nation of Islam handout at Harold McCormick Elementary School in Elizabethton. The handout asked “What does it take to be on Mount Rushmore?

The handout then explains that George Washington hailed from Virginia, a “prime breeder of black people.” Of Theodore Roosevelt, it was alleged he called Africans “ape-like.” There were also disparaging remarks made of Thomas Jefferson (he enslaved 200 Africans) and Abraham Lincoln.

When contacted the teacher first claimed to not remember the handout, then claimed the students were instructed not to take it home (something that horrified parents) and ultimately the school attempted to accuse the child of stealing the handout.

Massachusetts Schools Notorious for Anti-Christian Bias, Now Teaching Islam

Islam in School 500x200Millions of students in public schools don’t understand fractions or pronouns at even a basic level but students in the oceanfront Boston suburb of Revere, Mass. are taking the time to learn all about Islam — in the most embarrassingly shallow and cheerleading way imaginable.

Part of the textbook prints the Muslim Call to Prayer, according to Boston NBC affiliate WHDH.

“I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,” it says.

The textbook portion also reverently celebrates Muhammad’s life.

One local parent, Anthony Giannino, is upset about the textbook’s treatment of the Muslim religion.

“We don’t believe in Allah. I don’t believe in my son learning about this here,” Giannino added. “If my son was from another country and came here, he would have been catered to.”

Liberals, once again, inflict warped, psychological experiments on your kids.

experimenting on children 500x200

Recently, school teachers at a middle school near Lincoln, Neb., were given a handout with tips on how to create a gender-neutral classroom environment. The handout was from the group Gender Spectrum, that according to its website, provides, “education, training and support to help create a gender sensitive environment for all children and teens.”

“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” reads a handout from the Lincoln Public Schools that was given to teachers.

The handout was part of an effort to educate teachers and administrators about transgender issues, educators told the Lincoln Journal Star.

According to Nebraska Watchdog, Al Riskowski, executive director of the Nebraska Family Alliance, said that his group supports legislation to combat bullying but says that these training materials go “way beyond trying to teach someone how to respect another individual” or understand gender identification or sexual orientation to a “whole new idea of boy-girl.”

While “tolerance” is emphasized in the instructions, the teachers are told: “Be intolerant of openly hostile attitudes or references towards others… on their statements about gender. Being punitive may stop the behavior, at least in your presence. Being instructive may stop it entirely.” In other words, do not tolerate those children who prefer traditional gender roles, in fact, be hostile toward them.

Connecticut Despots Still Using Sandy Hook To Demand Even More Power and Control…For the Children.

school-resource-officers 500x200

In spite of the fact that Adam Lanza spent the vast majority of his educational life in government schools, Connecticut Bureaucrats are now demanding that more scrutiny and control must be given them over homeschooling in the state, because Lanza spend a short bit of time being homeschooled.

According to the Connecticut Post, the commission states, “[T]ighter scrutiny of homeschoolers may be needed to prevent an incident such as the December 2012 slaughter of 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.”

The Post reports that the murders were carried out by Adam Lanza, “a disturbed 20-year-old who had been homeschooled by his mother, Nancy Lanza, whom he also shot to death on the morning of his murder spree.”

In fact, Lanza, according to a variety of reports, experienced most of his education in public schools.

Under the Connecticut Children’s Behavioral Health Plan draft proposal, homeschooled children with behavioral and emotional disabilities would be required to have individualized education plans approved by the special education director of the local public school district. Continued homeschooling of these children would only be approved if the students were documented as having made “adequate progress” in their plans as part of mandatory annual reports to the special education directors in their public school districts.

Of course the problem is that many anti-homeschool judges use any and every excuse to force family to place their children in government schools. This would simply add fuel to that unconstitutional fire.

Liberal Teachers Lead Students in Demanding More Censorship of Conservative Curriculum

Government schooled students protesting for the right to protest. Yes, seriously, they are that stupid. Thank you Government Schools for producing morons.

Government schooled students protesting for the right to protest. Yes, seriously, they are that stupid. Thank you Government Schools for producing morons.

Teachers at Colorado’s second-largest school district staged a “sick-out” that shut down two high schools to protest a conservative-led school board proposal to focus history education on topics that promote citizenship, patriotism and respect for authority.

The proposal comes from an elected board with three conservative members who took office in November. The other two board members were elected in 2011 and oppose the new plan, which was drafted in response to a national framework for teaching history that supporters say encourages discussion and critical thinking. Detractors, however, fear it could put an outsized emphasis on the nation’s problems. In other words, Blame America For Anything and Everything.

Liking the idea of a reason to skip school, students followed the teachers’ protest with their own walk-out.

A student demonstrator, Tyrone G. Parks, a senior at Arvada High School, said Tuesday that the nation’s foundation was built on civil protest, “and everything that we’ve done is what allowed us to be at this point today. And if you take that from us, you take away everything that America was built off of.” Apparently, unaware that he was in fact being allowed to protest, and was also demanding censorship of thoughts and ideas that conflicted with liberal teachers, he exemplified the ignorance that has resulted from the Blame America Curricula.

So What Are Schools Banning These Days?….You’ll Be Amazed.

mean-teacher 500x200

In the aftermath of school shootings across the nation, lunk-headed government school administrators (who are in charge of “educating” your children, by the way) address the problem with some of the most idiotic bans imaginable. For instance…

From FoxNews.com

Feathers have been ruffled at California’s Ventura High School, where the principal this week banned the football booster club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches over fears that people might be offended.

“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus,” Wyatt told the Ventura County Star.

It was a sentiment supported by Trudy Tuttle Ariaga, superintendent of the Ventura Unified School District.

“We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission,” Ariaga told CBS News in Los Angeles.

Not to be outdone, CBS Sacramento reports on even worse stupidity in their government schools…

A young girl was told by her school that she couldn’t wear a T-shirt to pay tribute to the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001.

School leaders say they have a good reason for banning the sixth-grader’s Sept. 11 memorial T-shirt on Thursday. When her stepfather tried to get permission, school administrators say it violated their dress code.

It’s a shirt the Foster family wears every year on Sept. 11. It shows the names of those who list their lives that day in the shape of the World Trade Center towers on the front of the shirt.

But his stepdaughter wasn’t allowed to wear it on the 13th anniversary of the attacks. Administrators told him she had to wear her uniform—a T-shirt that has the school’s logo and name.

Amazing, 13-Year-Old Prodigy Expelled From D.C. Public School…You Won’t Believe Why

Avery Gagliano 500x200

Avery Gagliano is a commanding young pianist who attacks Chopin with the focused diligence of a master craftsman and the grace of a ballet dancer.

The prodigy, who just turned 13, was one of 12 musicians selected from across the globe to play at a prestigious event in Munich last year and has won competitions and headlined with orchestras nationwide.

Avery’s accolades include studying in the Inaugural Lang Lang Junior Music Camp in Munich, Germany, as well as under Dr. Veda Kaplinsky at the Aspen Music Festival. She was also featured in a NPR broadcast program “From The Top” and a two-hour PBS documentary titled “Arts and the Mind” that was broadcast nationwide.

In March, Avery traveled to Connecticut for a piano competition. She won the Grand Prix award for her performance of a Chopin Waltz and when she returned to school, a truancy officer was called. D.C. bureaucrats label any student, including Avery, with 10 “unexcused absences” as a truant.

Yes, you read that right. Avery’s amazing talent and straight-A grades at Alice Deal Middle School earned her no slack from school officials, despite her parents’ begging and pleading for an exception.

Deciding that a truancy prosecution over piano competitions was ridiculous, Avery’s parents withdrew her from Deal. And this year, instead of touring the world as a first-class representative of D.C. public schools’ finest, she is going as a home-schooler.

FBI: Cuban intelligence aggressively recruiting leftist American academics as spies, influence agents

College-Classroom 500x200

Cuba’s communist-led intelligence services are aggressively recruiting leftist American academics and university professors as spies and influence agents, according to an internal FBI report published this week.

Cuban intelligence services “have perfected the work of placing agents, that includes aggressively targeting U.S. universities under the assumption that a percentage of students will eventually move on to positions within the U.S. government that can provide access to information of use to the [Cuban intelligence service],” the five-page unclassified FBI report says. It notes that the Cubans “devote a significant amount of resources to targeting and exploiting U.S. academia.”

“Academia has been and remains a key target of foreign intelligence services, including the [Cuban intelligence service],” the report concludes.

One recruitment method used by the Cubans is to appeal to American leftists’ ideology. “For instance, someone who is allied with communist or leftist ideology may assist the [Cuban intelligence service] because of his/her personal beliefs,” the FBI report, dated Sept. 2, said.

This obviously doesn’t work, so let’s keep doing it! It’s only our future.

teacher pay 500x200

The MacIver Institute primarily focuses on state issues, but decided to take a nationwide look at teacher compensation to coincide with the opening of the new school year.

The organization looked at the median teacher pay in sixty different U.S. metro areas, and then also corrected salary figures for an area’s relative cost of living. After adjustments, the highest-paid teachers turned out to be is Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where the median teacher takes home an adjusted $73,078 per year. The lowest-paid teachers were in Honolulu, Hawaii, where the high cost of living eats away at paychecks and leads to an adjusted median salary of only $32,312.

Cost of living is an important adjustment to make and results in some major shifts in city rankings. The most significant example is New York City, where a median salary of $73,000 evaporates to a scant $33,152 when the city’s sky-high housing prices come into play.

While teacher salaries could vary widely, MacIver found that there was no connection between teacher salaries and the performance of students on national NAEP tests, one of the only means by which students can be compared state to state. Indeed, some of the highest-paying cities had the worst test results.
