While the Muslim school children’s integration into Dutch society is failing, Dutch school children as young as four, are kneeling at a local mosque.
A new study (PDF) by the Dutch DUO Onderwijsonderzoek was conducted among 2200 elementary and high-school teachers. The theme was the extent to which teachers felt the country’s integration problems affected their work and experiences in the classroom.
54% of Amsterdam’s, Rotterdam’s, The Hague’s and Utrecht’s high-school teachers say they observe a:
“failed integration and increasing cultural segregation in society.”
Georgetown, SC — It appears that throwing a paper airplane at your teacher in school is now a police-enforced punishable offense consisting of jail time. An Andrews High School student is now learning the hard way about the repercussions of silly childhood pranks — in a police state.
Earlier this month, Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested 17-year-old David Michael Elliott after his instructor, Edward McIver, told the school resource officer that he wanted to press charges for an assault with a paper airplane.
Elliott was arrested and booked into Georgetown County Detention Center, where he was later released on a $1,087.50 bond. He is now facing charges of third-degree assault and battery — for a paper airplane.Continue reading »
The father of the pupil at the girl’s primary school in German ski resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen discovered that his daughter had been forced to learn the Islamic prayer when he discovered a handout she had been given. He claimed she had been “forced” by teachers to memorize the Islamic chants and forwarded the handout to Austrian news service unsertirol24.
UK Express (h/t Terry D) The handout read: “Oh Allah, how perfect you are and praise be to you. Blessed is your name, and exalted is your majesty. There is no God but you.” It had been given to the girl during a lesson in “ethics” at the Bavarian school. Continue reading »
It is no great secret that educators in our country tend to skew toward the left side of the political spectrum. One can barely pick up a newspaper these days without having to read some outrageous story about University administrators caving to the whims of pampered millennials who suffer panic attacks as a result of exposure to the latest “micro-aggressions” or “trigger words.” In fact, just a few weeks back, we wrote about how San Francisco State was building separate campus housing for African American students because the Black Student Union thought students of color needed a special place where they could “safely live and talk about issues affecting African-Americans” (see “San Francisco State Builds Segregated Dorms Where African-Americans Can “Safely Live And Talk”“). Who knew that segregation was making a come back as a “progressive” policy?
But the latest case of liberal educator lunacy, according to EAG News, comes from Norman North High School, in Oklahoma, where a teacher is apparently “teaching” students that “to be white is to be racist, period.” Since when did pushing extreme progressive rhetoric become part of the high school curriculum? In the good ole days this kind of insanity was reserved for the liberal elite professors at the university level but we guess those days are over. Continue reading »
What’s so uniquely tragic about the the intrusion of the police state into America’s schools, is it appears the parents themselves are the ones demanding it. This is in contrast to an overbearing surveillance state implemented by government in secret, as well as by private corporations via lengthy terms of service agreements nobody actually reads.
NORTH CAROLINA (INTELLIHUB) — Well, I hate to say it — but America is just not America anymore. I can’t believe this!
Tavelers Rest High School principle Lou Lavely has banned participants of football games with Berega High School from bringing or waving American Flags as America is being transformed into a wasteland by design.
And can you believe it? Lavely responded to the backlash after banning the flag from games and responded on Facebook by posting:
“Some events at last evening’s football game have resulted in concerns being raised in our community. I am writing to assure that any decisions made regarding American flags being permitted into the game were made in the best interests of all attending the game and in the spirit of patriotism and respect for our flag.”
So essentially the principle is catering to Hispanics — the ones who don’t respect this country or its flag rather than true American’s with pride.
Albuquerque, NM— In Soviet America, burping in class is a serious crime. Need proof? Just look at the story of this 13-year-old from Albuquerque, New Mexico’s Cleveland Middle School.
According to George Washington University law professor, Jonathan Turley, the boy was acting like a class clown, doing what many class clowns do: disrupting class. Because of his loud burps, his teacher, Margaret Mines-Hornbeck, reported the boy to Officer Arthur Acosta. The seventh grader was then taken to an administrative office after being searched for drugs, as the assistant principal accused the 13-year-old of participating in a marijuana transaction.
Before this week, 14-year-old Ella Fishbough had never been in trouble at school.
The cheerful, curly-haired eighth-grader’s undoing came when she learned that a male friend was having a bad day. As consolation, Ella put her arms around him in a hug.
“It was literally for a second,” the eighth-grader told Click Orlando. But that moment earned her a morning in detention — as well as a blemish on her formerly spotless disciplinary record.
It is at each principal’s discretion to determine what kind of touching is inappropriate. According to WFTV Orlando, hugging was banned altogether at Jackson Heights this year, in addition to holding hands, linking arms and kissing.
On June 16, police were called to an unlikely scene: an end-of-the-year class party at the William P. Tatem Elementary School in Collingswood.
A third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed that the remark was “racist,” the school called the Collingswood Police Department, according to the mother of the boy who made the comment.Continue reading »
University leaders ‘do not have their priorities straight’
A faculty committee has proposed adding a three credit hours requirement in diversity to the general education curriculum at Wayne State University. It also recommended that WSU drop its university-wide requirement in mathematics, an idea that was carried out on June 13.
“We are proposing the creation of specific ‘Diversity’ courses, with students required to take one course in this designation,” said a document from the General Education Reform Committee, which is recalibrating what the university will expect from all students who earn a degree from the state university. It released the proposal in May. Continue reading »
Parents across the country are revolting against an obviously agenda-driven brainwashing system that is our nation’s modern public schools, while the system is doing everything it can to force compliance.
Parents who opted their kids out of Florida’s standardized state tests at the end of the year as an act of civil disobedience are now being told their children, despite some having straight As, are going to be held back a grade as punishment… once again proving that America’s public school system is not about educating smart future leaders of tomorrow, but dumbing kids down and forcing them to obey and conform.
In an apparent attempt to make math more relevant to the young people of Alabama, a teacher at Burns Middle School in Mobile, required eighth-graders to take a math quiz that drew complaints from parents about inappropriate themes and racist overtones.
As The Washington Post reports, nearly 900 students are enrolled at Burns Middle School, about 50 percent of them black and 40 percent white, according to state data. Forty-three percent qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
“Dwayne pimps 3 ho’s,” reads one question on the quiz given to students at Burns Middle School in Mobile, Ala. “If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne’s $800 per day crack habit?”Continue reading »
DETROIT – Detroit Public Schools officials contend a school police officer who shoved, kicked, dragged and pepper sprayed a 15-year-old female student “followed proper procedures” for handling unruly students.
Cass Technical High School sophomore Destiny Heard was late to class in December and attempted to ride the school’s elevator without a valid elevator pass, and a teacher forced her to take the stairs to her sixth-floor classroom instead, Vice.com reports. Continue reading »
bout a year and a half ago, Jessica Schneider was handed a flyer by one of her colleagues in the child-advocacy community. It advertised a training session, offered under the auspices of the Illinois Principals Association (I.P.A.), in how to interrogate students. Specifically, teachers and school administrators would be taught an abbreviated version of the Reid Technique, which is used across the country by police officers, private-security personnel, insurance-fraud investigators, and other people for whom getting at the truth is part of the job. Schneider, who is a staff attorney at the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, was alarmed. She knew that some psychologists and jurists have characterized the technique as coercive and liable to produce false confessions—especially when used with juveniles, who are highly suggestible. When she expressed her concerns to Brian Schwartz, the I.P.A.’s general counsel, he said that the association had been offering Reid training for many years and found it both popular and benign. To prove it, he invited Schneider to attend a session in January of 2015. Continue reading »
(MiddleEastEye) An eight-year-old boy in the UK was flagged up by his primary school to social services for saying that he wanted to fight terrorists, according to his parents.
Mark Atkinson, the boy’s father, told the Wirral Globe newspaper on Wednesday that he had been summoned to a meeting with the head teacher over the classroom remark, which came after the school in northern England had been visited by counter-terrorism police who told teachers to “look out for signs of radicalisation”.

Two honor roll students in Dallas were suspended and faced 30 days in an alternative school after one of the girls tried to save the other’s life by sharing her inhaler. The school says it is an automatic decision when a controlled substance is involved.
Earlier in the week, 12-year-old Indiyah Rush offered her classmate, Alexis Kyle, 13, who has asthma, her inhaler when she saw her wheezing and gasping during gym class at Vernon Schrade Middle School in Dallas.
“I was just trying to save her life,” Rush told Fox 4 News on Wednesday. “I didn’t think I was trying to do anything bad.”
Rush has had asthma since the age of five and carries a rescue inhaler.
Both girls were sent to the principal’s office and suspended. The girls were also looking at 30 days in an alternative school.
“I mean they punished her twice,” Monique Rush, Indiyah’s mother, said. “They suspended her on top of sending her to alternative school. I mean how could you do a kid like that?”Continue reading »
As a new parent, the idea of sending my children to public school is a frightening thought. The more you read, the more you realize the importance of extreme vigilance when it comes to what’s happening at whatever place you send your kids to for majority of their day. Quite often, parents are simply left completely in the dark about some very important matters.
One such example relates to Google’s penetration of the U.S. public school system, and how the company employs a loophole in order to collect data on children. Google achieves this by referring to itself as a “school official” under the law. I truly wish I was making this up.
Google is a major player in U.S. education. In fact, in many public schools around the country, it’s technically a “school official.” And that designation means parents may not get a chance to opt out of having information about their children shared with the online advertising giant.

President Barack Obama’s Department of Education has threatened to cut funding to an Illinois school district if it doesn’t allow a male transgender student to use the girl’s locker room and showers, according to the Chicago Tribune.
I never really loved the game “tag” as a youth, although I never thought for a second it was particularly dangerous or violent. My emotional and/or physical state certainly never felt threatened.
In contrast, I loved dodgeball. It was the highlight of my day every single time we were allowed to play it. I wasn’t a particularly big or strong kid, and I certainly wasn’t the best player, but I loved it nonetheless. Everybody did.
Dodgeball is like going into war compared to “tag,” yet for a Washington state school district, “tag” is simply to “emotionally and physically” damaging to be played during recess.
If you want to write a textbook on how a nation can raise a generation of terrified, pampered children who will grow up to be docile, apathetic adults, this is it. Continue reading »
The following story is another example of how our typical response to tragedy as Americans is to overreact and turn to complicated, unnecessary solutions to simple problems.
There was recently a tragic death in California of an autistic student who was found dead on a school bus after being left alone when a substitute driver failed to notice him sleeping on one of the seats. In response, the Antelope Valley Schools Transportation Agency (AVSTA) has decided to implement an iris scanning program on special needs buses. So why do I think this is worth highlighting?
