Nov 9, 2023 ~ Jonathan Barth, 'New Report Uncovers The Sad State Of History Classes At American Universities'
"Many of the syllabi examined for this study were nakedly political. Most syllabi intensively focused on identity topics of race, gender, sexuality, queer theory, and militant social protest. The predominant takeaway for students in many of these classes was American history as a history of exclusion, chiefly organized around identity.
Neglected topics included basic political history, including various presidential administrations, pivotal elections, and party development. Legal history was generally excluded, as was military history and diplomatic history. Conservatism, of course, was almost universally framed in a negative context. Primary readings from conservative thinkers were rarely assigned.
Absent, also, was any indication that the United States had made real and significant progress on civil rights and race relations in the 20th century. Moreover, there was rarely any indication that the average standard of living, for all people, increased substantially across the twentieth century (better housing, health, education, and technology); instead, students were often fed an anti-market, anti-consumerist narrative about the corrupting effects of capitalism. Social, economic, and technological advancements received virtually no mention; instead, post-World War II America was often portrayed as a period – not of prosperity and expanding freedom – but of greed, decline, sexism, homophobia, and racism."
Oct 29, 2023 ~ In order to implement DIE, Oregon will drop all requirements needed to graduate high school. Due to 'equity', no students of color can be expected to learn anything at all, least of all black people. "High schoolers in Oregon won’t need to demonstrate basic competency in reading, writing or math in order to graduate for at least five more years because, according to education officials, such requirements are unnecessary and disproportionately harm students of color."
Oct 3, 2023 ~ The newest DIE/CRT BS being pushed in DIE 'Training': 'Evaded Racism.' Which is "blaming parents and culture for sub-par achievement." Schools should NOT try to close the achievement gap between students of color and white students by "encouraging students to change their behavior or families to do more things that were like white families do, like reading to their children or adopting a growth mindset." No, no. Even mentioning that any of that could help (and there is tons of evidence that it does) or suggesting that the ever persistent achievement gaps are due to anything other than racism is itself, 'evaded racism.'
Sep 21, 2023 ~ Haley Strack, '40% Of Baltimore High Schools Don’t Have a Single Math-Proficient Student' 75% scored a 1 out of 4, the lowest score possible. School officials blame “chronic underfunding,” but Baltimore schools spend far more than average per student than the rest of the country.
Sep 12, 2023 ~ The hypocrisy of Democrats is breathtaking. Stacy Davis Gates, head of the Chicago Teachers’ Union is sending her son to private school after fiercely opposing school choice for everyone else. She called it 'racist' because dems call everything racist. "School choice was actually the choice of racists. It was created to avoid integrating schools with Black children."
Sep 11, 2023 ~ Adam B. Coleman, 'Progressives ending grading in schools are condescending racists' So called, “equitable grading practices” eliminate tests, homework grades, attendance, 0s for missing assignments etc. Cheating can't even be penalized. Nothing is expected of black people anymore. All that matters is that whatever scores remain (if any) are the same across the races. Aug 29, 2023 ~ Dennis Prager, 'Why Young Americans Are Not Taught about Evil' Because "nearly all the genocides of the 20th century were committed by Communists and the Left, which runs virtually all educational institutions, has always had a soft spot for communism."
Aug 26, 2023 ~ Denver schools fired principal Kurt Dennis for bogus charges of racism. Dennis didn't want a student charged with attempted murder and other gun charges in his school. He also put violent students in a room to give them cool off time. Standard #CRT, DIE bs says those are racist.
Jul 31, 2023 ~ Lebron James' "I Promise" school is such a failure that "the school hasn’t had ONE STUDENT from its 8th grade class pass a state math test in over 3 years." The normal bogus excuses of 'systemically racist teachers' and 'underfunding' don't apply so this will simply be ignored.
Jul 30, 2023 ~ Ryan Saavedra, "Top Black Academic Who Co-Created Florida’s African American History Curriculum Shreds Democrat Lies" From @VP Harris on down they lied that Florida teaches black people benefited from slavery. Dr. Wil,liam Allen says "categorically false." https://www.dailywire.com/news/top-black-academic-who-co-created-floridas-african-american-history-curriculum-shreds-democrat-lies
Jul 25, 2023 ~ Charles CW Cooke, 'Kamala Harris Is Brazenly Lying about Florida’s Slavery Curriculum' Of course she is. Democrats lie about every single thing especially if it will divide us. "Students will be taught that enslaved people benefited from slavery." Absurd.
Jul 21, 2023 ~ Ari Blaff, "'Terminal Decline': Ontario Teachers Plead for Help as Schools Descend into Violent Mayhem" Long and sad account of how DIE policies prevent the discipline needed to ensure safety and learning. "It is growing more violent by the day." "We've lost the hallways." "Students will ignore any boundaries or structure remaining at our school. Students have shown time and time again that they are unwilling to uphold any type of decency towards staff and students in the building." "elementary students roamed halls freely during class, intimidated staff, and bullied students. On several occasions, students brought knives to school, shouted racist slurs, and conducted 'swarming' attacks against kids in bathrooms." "Many [teachers] anonymously reported widespread verbal abuse, sexual assault, and physical violence. Others claimed that sending troublesome students to the principal’s office accomplished nothing." All of this is tolerated almost entirely over the fear of being called a 'racist' for addressing it. Education results predictable suffer.
Jul 14, 2023 ~ National Review, 'The Pandemic School Closures' Terrible Toll' Its become more and more clear that closing the schools, especially for so long during #Covid19 was a terrible mistake. The learning loss, especially for poor and minority students is very bad.
Jun 30, 2023 ~ The Supreme Court STRIKES DOWN President Biden's student-debt-relief plan by a 6-3 vote. SCOTUS confirms the obvious fact that the plan is not authorized by the HEROES Act. Biden immediately vows to look for other illegal methods of funding the the program.
Jun 29, 2023 ~ In Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, the Supreme Court strikes down race based affirmative action in college admissions. Asians must score 450, 270, 140 points higher than blacks, Hispanics and whites for the same spot in college. SCOTUS said no more of that unconstitutional racial discrimination!
Jun 28, 2023 ~ "'Non-binary'-identifying students in New Jersey skyrocket 4,000% since 2019, providing further evidence of the social contagion aspect of gender ideology, particularly through propaganda pushed on minors on social media." @MrAndyNgo There are in fact no 'non-binary' people.
Jun 4, 2023 ~ Author and former Africana Studies professor at North Carolina State University, Dr. Kamau Kambon has died. Kambon once said "We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet" on a Howard University panel televised on CSPAN. That statement received applause. Kambon was not canceled. His 'Blacknificent Books' continued to sell on mainstream outlets. He continued to receive speaking engagements. He was a celebrated member of the Black Lives Matter #BLM movement. After his death, he received glowing obituary after glowing obituary. Examples: "His legacy is bravery, resilience, and challenging the status quo. His work has inspired generations of activists and students." "He was a strong voice for African-Americans and other people of colour, and his WORDS and actions continue to inspire those who seek social justice." "His WORDS and deeds will inspire generations. (emphasis mine) And on and on. Many more.
May 15, 2023 ~ Huge: DeSantis Signs Legislation Eliminating Diversity, Equity And Inclusion In Higher Education. "DEI is better viewed as standing for ‘discrimination, exclusion and indoctrination,’ and that has no place in our public institutions. This bill says the whole experiment with DEI is coming to an end in the state of Florida. We are eliminating the DEI programs. We are going to treat people as individuals. We’re not going to treat people as members of groups."
May 6, 2023 ~ As it becomes more and more clear that closing schools during the pandemic was very harmful to students, Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers is trying to claim she fought to open them. #FakeNews Politifact tries to enable the lies. Debunked by many.
Apr 26, 2023 ~ Essex Westford School District tells parents: "In an effort to align our curriculum with our equity policy, teachers will be using gender inclusive language... Person who produces sperm in place of boy, male. Person who produces eggs in place of girl, female."
Apr 8, 2023 ~ All of a sudden, the woke, DIE pukes decided that the word 'ladies' is now problematic. So much so that the top candidate for superintendent of Easthampton Public Schools had his offer withdrawn when it was discovered that he’d used the word “ladies” in an email to two women.
Mar 11, 2023 ~ Reagan Reese, 'Not One Student Was Proficient In Math In 23 Baltimore Schools' "An additional 20 schools in the district had no more than two students proficient in math." But unless these students are not represented in ivy leagues and jobs, its 'racism.'
Mar 10, 2023 ~ 'Elementary School Excludes White Students from Club, Mentor Group' The modern #CRT DIE woke way is not just segregation based, but increasing excludes whites entirely. Totally fine.
Mar 10, 2023 ~ CA State senator Nancy Skinner (Dem of course) introduced Senate Bill 274 (S.B. 274) to prohibit schools from suspending students because suspensions "disproportionately" affect Black male students. 'Racism' is always blamed for these differences but it is never the real reason.
Feb 24, 2023 ~ Asra Nomani, 'The War on Merit Turns into Systemic Injustice' More coming out about how many high schools withheld telling students about being National Merit Scholars, sacrificing their futures to 'equity.' DIE is pure poison. True evil.
Feb 1, 2023 ~ Betsy McCaughey, "Dems' Attack On Smart Kids'" War on Gifted classes in the name of DIE, #CRT. 'Equity' means cut everyone down to the lowest level. "The Hechinger Report, based at Columbia University's Teachers College, claims 'gifted education has racism in its roots."
Jan 25, 2023 ~ The Jackson Board of Education in Michigan has extremely racist board members like Kesha Hamilton. "Whiteness is so evil. it manipulates then says, I won’t apologize for my dishonesty and trauma-inducing practices." This type of racism is only allowed against 1 group of people. She then compared white people to animals but says they're worse. "The last thing you have to worry about is an animal – though that could be a very real threat.. more dangerous are any whites you may see on the trail."
Jan 18, 2023 ~ John Sexton, 'Number of Virginia high schools who failed to inform students of merit awards rises to 13' The push for 'equity' gets darker. More and more VA high schools revealed to be screwing hard working kids over in the quest to destroy merit.
Jan 18, 2023 ~ Now politeness and civility are 'racist.' Chandler Unified (CUSD) School Board member, Lindsay Love says, "Politeness is white supremacy. Every time you prioritize politeness and civility over everything in a conversation, you are complicit in upholding white supremacy." Unreal.
Jan 8, 2023 ~ VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: 'Are Universities Doomed?' To meet their new DIE goals, universities are scrapping merit at massively discriminating on race. Stanford only admitting 23% white. "It rejects about 70% of those with perfect SAT scores." Stupid kids worked their asses off! #CRT
Jan 2, 2023 ~ The Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax County, VA has stopped reporting the names of National Merit award winners to copmly with their “equitable grading policy” which demands “equal outcomes for every student, without exception.” #CRT on steroids.
Nov 19, 2022 ~ Anthony Kinnett 'The Benefits of Tech in the Classroom Have Been Oversold' Should have been obvious but doing everything on screens has been far worse than the old fashion ways of books, paper and pencil. Worse than a big waste of money. Worse results.
Nov 13, 2022 ~ Scientific American has gone 'woke.' Published #FakeNews article, 'Why Scientists Must Stand for Affirmative Action and against Scientific Racism.' They (a single author) actually claim that if colleges do not lower standards for black people, that is 'white supremacy.' Sick.
Nov 13, 2022 ~ Luke Rosiak, 'School Closures Didn’t Reduce The Number Of Child COVID Deaths, Data Indicates' Complete repudiation of Democrat policies which harmed children's education.
Nov 13, 2022 ~ Gov. DeSantis press release quote study showing FL approach wes best for kids: "We kept schools open in 2020, and today’s NAEP results once again prove that we made the right decision. In Florida, adjusted for demographics, 4th grade students are #1 in both Reading and Math."
Oct 15, 2022 ~ "Teacher Calls Whiteness ‘Poison,‘ Fosters ‘Racially Stressful Encounters‘" Letter to parents at St. Matthew’s Parish School filled with #CRT garbage about 'whiteness' and 'white supremacy.' When will these people be told to shove this poison up their ass?
Sep 30, 2022 ~ Professor Frederick Prete on if the ACT test is 'biased': “Is the ACT biased? Yes, it is. It favors those students who have learned the basic material taught in high school, irrespective of their sex, race, or circumstance.”
Sep 28, 2022 ~ Kenny Xu, "Less than 2200 Black students have a Math SAT score above 700, according to Brookings. This is compared to 48,000 whites and 52,800 Asians. Controlled for income, Asians still have higher SAT scores. Asians study 13 hrs per week, whites 7, blacks 5. Culture. Not racism."
Sep 5, 2022 ~ NYC Trinity private school administrator Jennifer Norris is busted by Project Veritas saying she would never allow Republican speakers at the school. "I’m in charge as far as they are concerned. So, if they want to do that [bring Republican speakers], then... not on my watch."
Aug 29, 2022 ~ #FakeNews Boston Globe claims, "In Florida, 'Don’t Say Gay' is now the law, and LGBTQ+ businesses fear the fallout." The #FakeNews is so fake it can't even be parodied anymore. We don't know what's funnier, the people making fun of @BostonGlobe, claiming to be arrested for saying 'gay' or the 'celebs' and Democrat politicians saying 'gay' out loud in FL thinking they are defying some real law.
Aug 24, 2022 ~ All too often the people who preach DIE 'inclusion' are the ones who openly EXCLUDE based on race. A teacher in the Utah Granite School District bragged about how her classroom is "built for non-white students... There’s no white kids represented. Not a single white face there."
Aug 20, 2022 ~ The Oakland CA School District for some reason thought phonics was 'dehumanizing' and 'colonizing' and not progressive. "Those who wanted to fight for social justice, they figured that this new progressive way of teaching reading was the way." HUH? The results were disastrous.
Aug 18, 2022 ~ Joseph Manson, 'Why I'm Giving Up Tenure at UCLA
The ideological takeover of my university has ruined academic life for anyone who still believes in freedom of thought.' Explains how the #CancelCulture mob is in control and everyone allows it hoping the mob won't come after them.
Aug 18, 2022 ~ Minneapolis Public Schools has adopted an illegal and racist policy which stipulates that white teachers will be laid off or reassigned before “educators of color.” "If a non-white teacher is subject to excess, MPS must excess a white teacher with the “next least” seniority.
Aug 14, 2022 ~ Daniel Buck, 'The Case for Zero' "School districts across the country, from Arizona to Minnesota and Connecticut, have done away with zeros." Lowest grade is now a 50 or higher even if you do nothing. These ever lower standards have something to do with George Floyd and 'equity.'
Aug 14, 2022 ~ Hannah Bleau, "California School District Spending $20K on ‘Woke Kindergarten’ Which Aims to ‘“disrupt whiteness, white dominant/settler colonial narratives and anti-Blackness’" Anti-police rhetoric, trans cult orthodoxy and more. Be really careful where you send your children!
Aug 14, 2022 ~ Robert Cherry, "It’s not racist to say that family and parents matter." Ann Hsu had to apologize for her 'racist' comment that it was challenging to educate black and brown students because of their “unstable family environments” and “lack of parental encouragement.”
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Judson Berger, 'The Total Devastation of Covid School Closures' More and more studies showing kid are substantially behind where they should be in the US and other countries that closed schools. Sweden proved it was unnecessary. Kept schools open: death rate on par with Europe.
Jul 9, 2022 ~ Breccan F. Thies, 'After Nixing Merit-Based Admissions, More Students Failing at San Francisco High School' To no one's surprise failing grades tripled "after it scrapped its merit-based admissions scheme for a diversity, equity, and inclusion-focused one." Destroying education.
Jul 5, 2022 ~ Nate Hochman, 'Swedish Children Suffered No Learning Loss during Pandemic, New Study Shows' Sweden continues to be vindicated in their approach to the #COVID19 pandemic. Sweden kept schools open and did not suffer the learning losses the rest of the world experienced.
