Militarization of our police forces has been a hot topic off and on. It became a very hot topic after the Fergusun, Missouri fiasco and, as a result, the federal government has initiated another “investigation” into to their own role in supplying military equipment to police forces around the country. Interestingly, the negative reaction has come from both the sides of the political spectrum. I’m wondering why we haven’t seen this same bipartisan outrage over the militarization of our public schools? You’re not aware that public schools are also being militarized? Maybe that’s because the story is being under reported […]
Imagine that you represent an embattled urban school system. Plagued by decades of failure, waste, and ridicule, you have one saving grace-a young student that is a piano prodigy. This student travels the world; winning competitions and amazing world wide audiences with her talent. You might want to publicize that to perhaps enhance your own embattled image. Nah, declare her ‘truant’ and threaten her parents! 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 […]
President Golfpants took time out from boogying with the Clintons to unleash yet another Executive Order from his omnipresent pen. This one comes via the Secretary of Education, to helpfully remind school districts of their statutory obligation to educate all those children waltzing across the Mexican border, regardless of their “immigration status.” The Obama administration is preparing the nation’s schools to accept thousands of new students who illegally crossed the southwest border and are now awaiting trials on their possible deportations. A fact sheet from the Department of Education sent to states and schools on Monday highlights the children’s right […]
The concept of the government “solving” all the problems of the world has crept into our society over time. With every new program, every new entitlement, the public has gradually become accustomed to the government solving the ills of the world. And what of fact that the government seemed to make all of these problems worse? Well, that’s neglected. After all, the government is taking care of it-I don’t have to worry about it, right? Starting with the “progressive” movement in the late 19th century and accelerating greatly since the great depression, the government has vastly increased it’s meddling in […]
As reported by CBS. Oakland School Security Guard Seen Hitting Student In Wheelchair, Dumping Him On Floor In Oakland, CA a high school security guard attacked freshman Francisco Martinez, handcuffing him, beating him several times about the head and dumping him on the floor. The beating was so bad that only when another security guard intervened did the attack come to an end. According to a letter from Oakland High School principal Matin Abdel-Qawi to parents, a student in a wheelchair was lingering in a hallway as security officers urged them to get to class on May 19. One security officer […]
A middle school in East Greenwich, Rhode Island has cancelled the time honored tradition of “Honors Night”. It might hurt the feelings of some: “members of the school community have long expressed concerns related to the exclusive nature of Honors Night,” Isn’t that the point? I mean really. The honor roll is for students that worked hard and achieved a certain grade point average. At least that is what I always led to believe. I guess it has changed since I left school. Oh, but have no fear the students will indeed get their moment in the sun with “team […]
Editor’s Note: Let me warmly welcome Kim from just a conservative girl to our awesome staff here at CH 2.0! ~~~~~~~~~~ I came across an article today on our very sad public education system in our country. What is the most bothersome about the article is how little respect for the black community this administration seems to have. I think I have made it quite clear that I am no fan of Bush’s No Child Left Behind initiative. Well it seems that we have left it behind. But the one thing that I will say in favor of it is […]
Hat/Tip Independent Journal Review. We send our children to school in order that they get an education. We also have the expectation that our schools will keep our children safe while they are in their care. However, that was not the case with one little 6 year old boy whose only crime was going to the bathroom. Okay, so here’s the scenario: A teacher comes across a kindergartner leaving the bathroom. She grabs the 6-year-old boy by his face and pins him against the wall in an apparent fit of anger. But she doesn’t stop there. She then picks up the little guy […]
Would it be a big surprise if the states with the most segregated schools were democratic bastions? You know, the party of slavery? The party of Jim Crow? The Party of the KKK? The Party of Margaret Sanger and the “Negro Project,” AKA Planned Parenthood? Yeah, that democrat party. They seem to be keeping their racist traditions going, as evidenced by the following… 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 […]
We know that the educational system is in crisis. We’ve covered the indoctrination. We’ve covered the failure. We exposed the sexual abuse. Let’s face it, the public education system is a mess. But, as I will show, they have reaped what they have sown. the sense of entitlement and “blame someone else first” mentality has been turned against them. This pic sums it up nicely… You reap what you sow.
Michelle Obama should be proud. The school lunch program that she championed is such a great success, that students all over the US are singing it’s….praises? The Blaze has some tweets… Yes, the kids are speaking out, and it seems to be more cursing than anything else. Of course, the government’s response is been to basically say STFU. As a result of these clearly fulfilling lunches, over 1,000,000 less children are taking part in the school lunch program. In the extended economic fail fueled by Obama’s policies should cause the school lunch program to grow even more. But, as […]
Public schools are agents of liberalism. Therefore, expect force and censorship to be part of the methodology. Take the example of Katherine Duran, who was “suspended” from her son’s school for opposing Common Core… A school in Sacramento, California, has suspended a mom over her stance against Common Core. You read that correctly, the Mark Twain School in Sacramento has told the mother of a 12-year-old student that she has been suspended for two weeks. Police in Sacramento served the 14-day suspension to Katherine Duran in her home following a disagreement with the school over the soon-to-be enacted Common Core standards. […]
Take a look at this common core math assignment and ask yourself if it is intentionally meant to make children stupid… Mina Boyd, whose kindergartener came home with a Common Core math workbook this week, noticed her daughter’s unusual frustration regarding one lesson entitled “Count and Write 20.” “Count and tell how many pieces of fruit. Write the number,” the assignment asks. To Boyd’s surprise, the math problem only included 19 countable apples despite several surrounding problems correctly showing 20. “They ask her to count and write 20. So she counts, counts again, and again, and says ‘mom, there’s only […]
As time wears on, we see more and more examples of exceptionally inappropriate Common Core assignments. Here is the latest, because all fourth graders need to know about how daddy got busted in adultery. “Making inferences is a skill with which students often need much practice.” So begins the syntactically challenged introduction to a series of Common Core-related educational materials at a site called eReadingWorksheets.com. The worksheets and the site were created by Donald Morton, who — judging from the photograph accompanying the bio under “About” — is a cat. He is also, he informs the visitor, “a prolific online reading, language arts, and teaching […]
Common Core seems to be uncommonly stupid. As social media allows the distribution of the nonsense, more and more Americans are finding out that the only thing common about the core is that it’s intrusive, nonsensical, and full of propaganda. For the latest, here is a parent’s response to an overly complicated math problem… Of course, practical reality has nothing to do with education. In fact, I believe that is intentional. Reality doesn’t cooperate with the regressive agenda. Common Core should be called Common Corpse-at least Obama would get it.
Here is a pic of a questionnaire sent home with a first grader. The parent’s response indicates their opinion that it is part of common core. Sorry, but under common core, there is no privacy-only predetermined outcomes and attitudes, and millions of low information too dumb to realize that MSNBC is a propaganda outlet.
This is who Bill de Blasio hates… 194 Children. 194 Dreams. Closing great schools closes the door on opportunity. #SaveThe194 http://t.co/AUt23JyERV pic.twitter.com/j8wdJVqa1S — Charter Schools Work (@Fam4ExcSchools) March 6, 2014 Dark skinned children that can read… Bill de Balsio hates it when they can read, write, and escape the regressive plantation, so he’ll close down their school. You know, equality! Equally illiterate, equally unemployable, equally poor, and utterly dependent on democrat policies and programs! Don’t worry democrats, Bill de Blasio will make sure they stay right where you want them! Those that don’t get aborted […]
Like all good, white, progressives, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio heard that charter schools were successfully teaching dark skinned children how to read, so he’s trying to shut them down… So, it comes as no surprise that another progressive socialist is attacking another school choice program, charter schools. As John Fund reported in the National Review, “Last week, New York’s ACORN mayor Bill De Blasio announced he is evicting Success Academy, a widely praised charter school from the Harlem public school building it occupies. Two other charter schools will be blocked from opening. He claims elementary-school kids wouldn’t be safe […]
