New York state authorities are planning to step-up surveillance – this time, on school kids. The program, which is to be launched state-wide, is supposed to gather information on students starting from the age of five. And as RT’s Marina Portnaya reports, the move is finding little support among parents.
- Wisconsin Middle School Forces Children to Play “Cross the Line” Game – Asks Kids if Parents are Alcoholics (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Feb 5, 2014):
Just in case you had any lingering doubt about the uselessness of many U.S. public schools, I bring to you Marinette Middle School. Yes, the administrators of this school thought it would be a fantastic idea to gather sixth graders around and ask them in front of all their classmates questions like; if their parents are alcoholics, use drugs or are divorced.
This story emerge only a week after I published the very disturbing article: Lunches Seized and Tossed in Trash at Salt Lake City Elementary School for Kids with Unpaid Balances.
Now, from local station NBC26 we discover that:
- Cesium-134/137 level spiked in 21 elementary school ground soil in Kamakura in 2013 (Fukushima Diary, Feb 3, 2014):
Cesium-134/137 density spiked up in 13 of 16 elementary school ground soil of Kamakura in 2013.
In these 16 schools, Cesium-134/137 density was lower than detectable level in 2012, however it jumped up in 13 schools in 2013. The highest reading was 137 Bq/Kg in total of Cesium-134/137. This is 1.3 times much as the food safety limit.
- Lunches Seized and Tossed in Trash at Salt Lake City Elementary School for Kids with Unpaid Balances (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Jan 30, 2014):
While I understand the need for parents to pay for their children’s lunches, what do you think the appropriate response should be by adults running an elementary school upon realizing that some young children with unpaid balances had already been served a full hot meal?
Personally, I would assume that any reasonable human being would allow the children to eat the lunches while at the same time calling up their parents to sort out the problem. However, that’s not the action deemed appropriate by the “child-nutrition manager” that visited Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City this past Tuesday. Nope, this person decided that the best course of action was to seize already served lunches and throw them in the trash in front of the victim’s classmates. Mind you, this person is called a “child-nutrition manager.” So someone in charge of “child nutrition” thinks he or she is doing their job by ensuring malnourishment due to unpaid balances.
Next stop for these kids, debtors prison, which are making a comeback in the U.S. by the way. Disgraceful.
From the Salt Lake Tribune:
Up to 40 kids at Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City picked up their lunches Tuesday, then watched as the meals were taken and thrown away because of outstanding balances on their accounts — a move that shocked and angered parents.
- Anal Sex, Oral Sex, and Touching Each Other’s Genitals: Just Another Day in Junior High Health Class (The Daily Sheeple, Jan 16, 2014):
The last time I checked, none of the Three Rs stood for Reproduction or Recreational Sex.
However, a middle school in Kansas has apparently added those two Rs to the curriculum and is teaching students how to express their sexuality.
A poster entitled, “How Do People Express Their Sexual Feelings?” is broaching some rather shocking subjects with pupils. A photo taken by a 13 year old student lists things like:
- Oral Sex
- Sexual Fantasy
- Touching Each Other’s Genitals
- Anal Sex
- Vaginal Intercourse
- Holding Hands
- Saying “I like you”
- Cuddling on the Couch
- Some of country’s most expensive schools are facing legal action
- Compensation claims of up to £400,000 could close schools say experts
- Boris Johnson’s former school among those accused of abuse
- In December the Mail on Sunday revealed Ashdown House faced action
More than 20 private schools are involved in child sex abuse investigations after dozens of victims came forward in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
Some of the country’s leading institutions, including those attended by Nick Clegg, Boris Johnson and Tony Blair, face accusations of covering up abuse for decades. The allegations include rape.
Lawyers acting for the alleged victims are demanding up to £400,000 in compensation for the years of abuse they suffered.
So we rather throw food into the garbage than give it to a hungry kid???
- Texas School Throws Child’s Breakfast In The Garbage To Bully Him Out Of 30 Cents (RINF, Nov 10, 2013):
A quarter and a nickel. Three dimes. Six nickels. Thirty pennies. All equal 30 cents. This is the pocket change that a school punished a six grade boy for not having by taking away his breakfast and trashing it. Sound heartless? That’s because it is.
A 12-year-old boy was forced to sit in embarrassment at the breakfast table at Barber Middle School in Dickinson ISD when cafeteria workers took his food away and threw it in the garbage. Why? Because the boy’s account was short a measly 30 cents. As a result, the hungry child didn’t get to start the day with a meal in his belly.
Instead of allowing the child to finish his meal, school officials tossed it and made him call his mother to have her bring money to the school. But even after calling his mom, the school refused to let him eat until they got their money. Basically, this was a shake down. The boy’s mom, Jennifer Castilleja, described what happened and expressed disappointment that the school didn’t deal with the situation differently.
“My son called me and asked me if I could bring him some money because they took his breakfast from him and he needed money for breakfast,” Castilleja told KTRK.
“I said, ‘Well, I’m on my way, I’ll pay for it. And she said no, I would have to bring some money before he could have breakfast. There were kids all around him. I think he may have been a little embarrassed and upset and, of course, hungry. Telling the child, we are going to feed you, but go to the office and call your parent and let them know that you need money. Anything than sending them to class hungry.”
Schools deny meals to kids too often in this country.
- Sandy Hook Elementary to be Demolished – Contractors Forced to Sign Confidentiality Agreements (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Oct 16, 2013):
Am I the only one that finds this incredibly strange? While I completely understand community concerns surrounding potential exploitation of the tragedy, they seem to be going way overboard in their precautions. I’d love to hear readers’ thought on this because it seems extremely bizarre to me…
From the AP:
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — When the old Sandy Hook Elementary School is demolished, building materials will be pulverized on site and metal will be taken away and melted down in an effort to eliminate nearly every trace of the building where a gunman killed 26 people last December.
Contractors also will be required to sign confidentiality agreements and workers will guard the property’s perimeter to prevent onlookers from taking photographs or videos.
Demolition is set to begin next week and be finished before the Dec. 14 anniversary of the shootings. Town voters last month accepted a state grant of $49.3 million to raze the building and build a new school, which is expected to open by December 2016.
- Move Over, Obamacare. Here Comes Obamaschool (Ludwig von Mises Institute, Aug 30, 2013):
The president gave a speech on August 22 in Buffalo outlining his proposal to “reform” the student loan program. He acknowledged that the program has some problems, but assured the audience they are easily fixed. Just take the principles behind Obamacare and apply them to education. The president personally “guaranteed” that his proposals would make college more affordable.
- Across America, Young Teachers are So Broke They are Taking 2nd Jobs…As Prostitutes (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 28, 2013):
I suppose they should’ve just bought stocks. Welcome to the recovery.
From CBS in Detroit:
So, what are some Detroit women doing to offset their struggles in the classroom? Well, they’re becoming “sugar babies” of course — seeking financial assistance from wealthy men online.
In the Detroit School District alone, 201 teachers are moonlighting as sugar babies to offset wage cuts and job losses, according to dating website SeekingArrangement.com.
Brandon Wade, the website’s founder and CEO, said the average public school teacher registered on the site is between the ages of 28- and 33-years-old, and asks for approximately $3,000 a month in financial assistance from her sugar daddy.
While the number of Detroit school teachers registered on the website might be shocking to some, it’s actually less than the national average. Wade said the Philadelphia City School District has the highest number of teachers registered on the website at 674, followed by Miami-Dade School District with 507.

“One official said the food may not have been properly washed before it was cooked.”
What??? Now that would be a very powerful ‘insecticide’ indeed.
- Free school lunch kills at least 22 children in India; insecticide suspected (The Star, July 17, 2013):
PATNA, INDIA – At least 22 children died and more than two dozen others were sick after eating a free school lunch that was tainted with insecticide, Indian officials said Wednesday.
It was not immediately clear how chemicals ended up in the food in a school in the eastern state of Bihar. One official said the food may not have been properly washed before it was cooked.
The children, between the ages of 5 and 12, fell ill Tuesday soon after eating lunch in Gandamal village in Masrakh block, 80 kilometres north of the state capital of Patna. School authorities immediately stopped serving the meal of rice, lentils, soybeans and potatoes as the children started vomiting.
- 30 killed in school attack in northeast Nigeria (USA TODAY, July 6, 2013):
POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) — Islamic militants attacked a boarding school in northeast Nigeria before dawn Saturday, killing 29 students and one teacher. Some of the pupils were burned alive in the latest school attack blamed on a radical terror group, survivors said.
Parents screamed in anguish as they tried to identify the charred and gunshot victims.
- Schools scanned students’ irises without permission (RT, May 30, 2013):
Parents in Polk County, Florida are outraged after learning that students in area schools had their irises scanned as part of a new security program without obtaining proper permission.
Students at three facilities — an elementary school, a grade school and a high school — had their eyeballs scanned earlier this month as part of a ‘student safety’ pilot program being carried out by Stanley Convergent Security Solutions.
“It simply takes a picture of the iris, which is unique to every individual,” Rob Davis, the school board’s senior director of support services, wrote home to parents in a letter dated May 23. “With this program, we will be able to identify when and where a student gets on the bus, when they arrive at their school location, when and what bus the student boards and disembarks in the afternoon. This is an effort to further enhance the safety of our students. The EyeSwipe-Nano is an ideal replacement for the card based system since your child will not have to be responsible for carrying an identification card,” he added.
- High School Teacher Faces Disciplinary Action for Informing Students of Their Rights (Liberty, Blitzkrieg, May 28, 2013):
Rather than being reprimanded, Illinois high school teacher John Dryden, should be held up as an example of what it truly means to be a teacher. When confronted with a situation where he knew his students might be giving up their Fifth Amendment rights, the social studies teacher did what he believed was the right and moral thing to do. For that action, he may be disciplined.
A high school social studies teacher in Batavia, Illinois, faces disciplinary action for informing students of their Fifth Amendment rights in connection with a survey asking about illegal drug use. The survey, ostensibly aimed at assessing the needs of students at Batavia High School, was distributed on April 18. After picking up the survey forms from his mailbox about 10 minutes before his first class of the day, John Dryden noticed that they had students’ names on them and that they asked about drinking and drug use, among other subjects. Dryden, who had just finished teaching a unit on the Bill of Rights, worried that students might feel obliged to incriminate themselves—an especially ticklish situation given the police officer stationed at the school. Since there was no time to confer with administrators, he says, he decided to tell his students that they did not have to complete the forms if doing so involved admitting illegal behavior. Tomorrow the school board will consider whether and how to punish Dryden for taking advantage of this teachable moment.
I suppose it makes sense. In the gulag, ghetto of injustice America has become only crooked IRS agents should be able to plead the 5th.
The petition to support John Dryden has well over 5,000 signatures, with the most recent recent one being mine. It can be found here.
- Michigan school district that says it can’t pay teachers to remain closed until further notice (Click On Detroit, May 13, 2013):
BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A shuttered Michigan school district that says it can’t afford to pay its teachers plans to remain closed until further notice.The update is posted on the website of Buena Vista School District, located near Saginaw. It hasn’t held classes since May 3.
The district laid off teachers and all but three employees May 7. The district has said it wouldn’t be able to make payroll May 24 because the state put a hold on its funding to recoup about $580,000 for a juvenile detention education program the district no longer operates.
Meanwhile, MLive.com reports Democratic Congressman Dan Kildee of Flint says 91 percent of the district’s students get federal food assistance through free and reduced lunch programs, and he wants to ensure the shutdown doesn’t affect their nutrition.
- Parents have no ‘right’ to homeschool their kids, says Justice Department (Natural News, May 13, 2013):
Individual liberty is being burned at the stake, as governments set fire to people natural rights. This time it has everything to do with homeschooling.
It all started in Germany. Uwe and Hannelore Romeike were raising their five children in the German state of Baden-Wurttemberg, when they decided to remove their children from the public education system. In 2006, the Romeike’s illegally withdrew their children from the German public schools system and began homeschooling. Believing that the public education system was undermining their Christian faith, the Romeike’s began breaking the law and teaching their kids at home. By exercising their natural rights, the Romeikes were fined over $10,000 by the German government and at one point their children were forcefully removed from their home. In 2010, after getting their children back, they chose to flee Germany and move to the United States.
Finding freedom in the US, only to be challenged again, this time by the US
Upon arrival in Tennessee, the Romeikes were granted asylum. A federal judge rebuked the German policy and ruled that the Romeike’s had a reasonable fear of persecution for their personal beliefs if they returned to Germany.
Nothing much was said about the issue until the Obama’s Administration’s Department of Justice got involved.
Attorney General, Eric Holder came out and opposed the federal court ruling, siding with the German government. He pleaded that the Romeike’s be denied their asylum. Holder believes that governments may legitimately use force and authority to make parents comply with government-sanctioned schools.
With statements like these, the United States, once a beacon for liberty, is now endorsing force and mandates in regard to education. The right to homeschool and teach one’s own children is a fundamental human right is now at stake. It doesn’t matter what beliefs each family has. It’s liberty that matters. According to Holder, that liberty should be supervised by the federal government. Continue reading »

- Teen Arrested at Middle School for Wearing a Pro-Gun T-Shirt (Liberty Blitzkrieg, April 24, 2013):
This story perfectly demonstrates what a totally sad society we have become. We can’t arrest a single banker or political crook, but heaven forbid a 14 year old wears a shirt that expresses support for the Second Amendment. Arrest that infidel immediately! We discover that:
A West Virginia teen arrested and accused of nearly inciting a riot after a confrontation with a teacher over his National Rifle Association t-shirt has inspired dozens of students across his county to wear similar apparel in solidarity.
Jared Marcum, 14, had a confrontation Thursday with a Logan Middle School teacher over his NRA t-shirt, which bears the organization’s logo, along with an image of a hunting rifle and the phrase, “Protect your right.”
Marcum’s lawyer, Ben White, said that when the teen was told to remove the shirt or turn it inside out, he attempted to engage the teacher in a debate.
“Jared respects firearms and has training to use them, and believes in the Second Amendment,” White told ABCNews.com. “He believes it’s being threatened by current legislation. He wore [the shirt] as an expression of political speech and the need to protect the Second Amendment.”
Marcum was eventually arrested and taken away by police after refusing to remove the shirt. White said that when police told the teen they were going to arrest him, he stuck his hands out and said, “Fine.”
- South Dakota Signs ‘Gun In Every Classroom’ Bill (ZeroHedge, March 9, 2013):
South Dakota is the first state, since the Newtown tragedy, to enact a law allowing teachers to carry guns in school. As Fox News reports, Governor Dennis Daugaard signed the bill that allows school districts to arm teachers and other personnel. Unsurprisingly, the measure prompted intense debate as many feared it “could make schools more dangerous, lead to accidental shootings,” and potentially put guns into untrained hands, as well as previously dismissed by Education Secretary Arne Duncan as “a marketing opportunity” for the industry to sell more guns. South Dakota, apparently, doesn’t stand alone on this issue (Utah has allowed teachers to wear concealed weapons for 12 years) but as Washington pushes forward on its gun control legislation, other states including Georgia, New Hampshire, and Kansas are working on similar measures. Rep. Scott Craig – the bill’s main sponsor – has received support from rural districts who do not have the funds for full-time law enforcement. While the Great Depression promised a ‘chicken in every pot’, our current repression appears to be heading towards a ‘gun in every classroom’.
Interesting discussion of – Who are the ‘Gun Guys’?

- Obama pushes preschool for all kids so they don’t start out ‘a step behind’ (McClatchy, Feb 14, 2013):
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama visited a preschool in Georgia on Thursday to unveil details about his new plan to ensure that all 4-year-olds – including those whose families struggle to make ends meet – receive the same opportunities for a high quality early education.
Funded by federal and state tax dollars, the president’s plan would be a dramatic expansion of education for 4-year-olds, by making a year of optional preschool free for low- and moderate-income children.
“Hope is found in what works,” Obama said at the College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center in Decatur, part of Georgia’s widely available preschool program, funded by the state lottery. “This works. We know it works. If you’re looking for a good bang for your educational buck, this is it, right here.”
- Cops Nab 5-Year-Old for Wearing Wrong Color Shoes to School (Take Part, Jan 18, 2013):
In Mississippi, if kindergarteners violate the dress code or act out in class, they may end up in the back of a police car.
A story about one five-year-old particularly stands out. The little boy was required to wear black shoes to school. Because he didn’t have black shoes, his mom used a marker to cover up his white and red sneakers. A bit of red and white were still noticeable, so the child was taken home by the cops.
The child was escorted out of school so he and his mother would be taught a lesson.
Ridiculous? Perhaps. But incidents such as this are happening across Mississippi. A new report, “Handcuffs on Success: The Extreme School Discipline Crisis in Mississippi Public Schools,” exposes just how bad it’s become.
