Watch the latest video at <a href=”http://video.foxnews.com”>video.foxnews.com</a>College was the blueprint. Having turned academia as radically liberal as socialist Europe, the left is doing the same to public schools. A big part of the problem lies with the federal Department of Education, especially under Obama and Arne Duncan. We should abolish the DOE. Does that sound crazy extreme? You must be quite young. The DOE didn’t even exist until 1979 under Jimmeh Carter, and education has gone downhill since it was created. They take our money from the state level, launder it through the massive bureaucracy at the federal level, send what’s left back to the states but along with the federal punishments and rewards and propaganda. The DOE has nothing to do with improving the education of our kids, which has steadily gone downhill since 1979.
So a couple of parents are offended by the ballet The Nutcracker, and the PTA cancels the school trip. So the other parents say What the Heck and the PTA reschedules the trip. This was in Massachusetts. What so offended the objecting parents? You won’t believe this but it was….. the Christmas tree in the ballet. Those kid must be too fragile for public school if a Christmas tree would traumatize them. Say, I thought elites liked art. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/11/25/parents-offended-by-nutcracker-christmas-tree/
As if black students don’t lag far enough behind whites in education, the St Louis schools are being told/encouraged by the White House to incorporate the Ferguson Mike Brown shooting into their curriculum in order to promote “social justice.” A look at the syllabus and teacher comments make clear this is more angry grievance studies. Does anyone think this will help black students in St Louis? http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/11/obama-wh-to-promote-ferguson-indoctrination-classroom-memorials-to-mike-brown-student-letters-to-darren-Wilson/
This speaks for itself. Say when the Islamists take over the Dearborn, MI and Minneapolis, MN schools, do you think they’ll be sensitive to the Christian minority? http://pamelageller.com/2014/11/muslims-kill-christmas-and-jewish-new-year-in-maryland-school-district.html/
Minnesota sounds about as crazy a place to live anymore as Portland or Seattle or Oakland. Their view is that no one is born male or female, and you can be any sex you want to be at any time, changing your mind at will. Thus a teenage boy can shower or sleep with the girls. Minnesota wants to prevent teachers, say a coach on an extracurricular trip, from segregating students by gender. Yeh, that would be wrong. Some parents are fighting back see their ad below. http://thefederalist.com/2014/12/01/minnesota-plans-to-eliminate-gender-distinctions-for-high-school-sports/
