“Enrollment in preschool to 12th grade dropped by 2.6% across 41 states last fall.” This doesn’t sound like much, until one realizes that it’s 2.6% of nearly 50 million students, which equates to 1 million students missing from public school classrooms this Fall. Exacerbating these problems were the gimmicks that districts employed in response. - When they decided failures were the problem, they took on standards or competency-based grading, a grading system that made failure practically impossible. - When they thought student safety was the problem, they adopted restorative discipline, which made effective punishment for misbehavior practically impossible. - When they thought student engagement was the problem, they introduced project-based learning, which made objective assessment practically impossible. - When they thought student’s mental health was a problem, they implemented Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programs, which made authentic relationship-building impossible.

"I’m not suggesting you tell any especially big fibs, but maybe finesse your story into one that’s likely to be received with the least amount of confusion (and bear that in mind with the psychiatrists too)," said Warren. "Trans people have been doing this ever since they first got access to medical textbooks and started passing them around before appointments to brush up on their lines, so you’ll be joining a storied lineage of creative trans memoirists. You’re not here to make friends, you’re here to get hormones. Don’t feel bad about it," Warren added. A section of the article begins with the subheading "Stay away from mental health questions," in bold font.

Mask-optional districts didn't become a majority until March.

The students allege they felt pressured to participate and had to pretend they enjoyed the event. Some Spectrum club members tapped teens on the shoulders and ordered them to stand for the show, while others handed out pride stickers and stated “Take one or you’re homophobic.” Other kids got involved in the show and began twerking in the chapel.

The viral video was initially posted to YouTube and Facebook last week by the Islamic Education Center of Houston (IEC), which organized the event calling on parents to bring children aged 4-14, according to its social media pages. "Seyed Ali is calling on his children, his soldiers, who were born in the 2010s," the children sang in Houston, using Khamenei's first name (Ali) and honorific title (Seyed). "In spite of my age, I will be your army's commander … Don't look at my young age. May my father and mother be sacrificed for you. I will sacrifice everything for you." Wearing headbands, waving flags, and saluting, the children sang: "I make an oath, one day when you need me. I make an oath, to be your martyr." Observers have argued the song, which has been heavily promoted by Iranian state media, is part of the regime's efforts to secure support among the youth. Schoolchildren in Iran are reportedly being forced to sing and memorize it in school. Activists have lambasted the song as regime propaganda that seeks to recruit child soldiers and brainwash children, drawing comparisons to the Hitler Youth in Nazi Germany.

cross-posted from: https://exploding-heads.com/post/30211 > “For five years, this Christian school has received funding to provide nutritious meals to dozens of low-income children in the community,” said ADF legal counsel Erica Steinmiller-Perdomo. “Commissioner Fried and the Biden administration are trying to rewrite the law and ignore the exemption in an attempt to force this school to choose between violating its religious beliefs or providing lunches to children.” > > The federal mandate comes as a result of the Biden White House recently announcing its own “reinterpretation” of federal Title IX guidelines, in which the meaning of “sex” has been changed to include so-called “gender identity.” As a result, the Administration now considers civil rights in education to include alleged “transgender” rights. Among other requirements, schools must now allow students to use whichever restrooms and gender-separated facilities they prefer, such as locker rooms.

"[These doctors] talk about these young kids getting ‘gender-affirming care.’ They don’t tell you what that is,” he said. “They’re actually giving very young girls double mastectomies. They want to castrate these young boys.” “I think these doctors need to get sued for what’s happening. That’s wrong.” (Related: DeSantis calls for all doctors who perform “gender affirming” surgeries on children to be SUED.) According to DeSantis, kids between 10 and 13 years old should not undergo surgical procedures based on gender dysphoria as 80 percent of gender confusion “resolves anyways by the time [children] get older.”

You see the snowflakes’ parents at their wits’ end. Dreaming of bright futures for their children, but unable to see a path to that reality, the parents are actually the ones who signed their children up for this challenge (unbeknownst to the kids). The videos from the parents reveal a clear pattern: Although well-intentioned, their parenting style of “friend first and parent second” led to their children walking all over them. This dynamic engulfs these families, regardless of their status as a one or two parent household, their ethnicity, or their income bracket.

While they once described themselves as Republicans or Democrats, they now identify as independents who plan to vote based solely on vaccine policies.

Kate Melgoza delves into the parental energy of pet owners to raise their pet to the level of a child, modern parenting, and the problems that come with lack of discipline. Contrary to what the mainstream might imply, there is a difference between spanking to discipline (to teach right from wrong) and abusing your children.

16 states have filed lawsuits against the Sunshine State for implementing a law prohibiting teachers from instructing small children on sexuality and gender identity, along with requiring them to inform parents of major issues related to their children’s health.

“Everything is free, no questions asked. We have hundreds of doses of testosterone, estradiol, and spironolactone available right now. All are prescribed by doctors and unused.” Both estradiol and spironolactone are used by men who are attempting to present themselves as women. A guide from the United States Department of Justice states that “It is illegal to use prescription drugs without a valid prescription or to distribute them.” Has he been arrested yet, or is this one of the permitted crimes? What would have happened if he was distributing Ivermectin across state lines?

Bureaucratic control of primary and secondary education is shaped by state law, with variations between states. “Arizona and Florida are the best,” he said, in terms of decentralization of control benefiting charter schools. One of the educational bureaucracy’s primary tools of control is over teacher certifications and licensing, Arnn noted. “One of the key things” the educational bureaucracy does is “require teacher certification because that places [teachers] under the influence of the education schools,” Arnn explained.

“When a successful ad executive who’s got it all figured out becomes **pregnant, he’s** forced to confront social inequities he’d never considered before,” the Netflix description reads.

Disney+ Middle East recently launched in several predominantly Muslim countries — including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Qatar — where homosexuality is either illegal or considered taboo.

The Endocrine Society is “a global community of physicians and scientists dedicated to accelerating scientific breakthroughs and improving patient health and well being,” according to its website. It provides news on research pertaining to endocrinology and offers trainings on a variety of related subjects. The Endocrine Society has encouraged the use of puberty blocking drugs for children who are attempting to change their sex.

“Here in the state of Florida, there are school board members that are woke,” Edwards, speaking at Wednesday’s “Support Our Schools” event, proudly declared. He continued, seemingly lamenting that too many teachers and administrators and the “machinery” have accepted all of the pro-students and pro-parent standards embraced by the DeSantis administration. However, he said school board members such as himself are “not accepting” it anymore “Tom Edwards and Radical Liberal Activists push a narrative blaming parents for the heated tone at School Board meetings, claim that indoctrination isn’t happening, and call frustrated parents who are fighting to protect their children ‘domestic terrorists,'” she said. “He and his radical activists proclaim to be part of the ‘moderate majority’ in attempt to fool the public. Meanwhile he’s out there boasting about being WOKE, being strategic and working on the ‘inside’ to form Coalitions to advance his WOKE Agenda,” she added. “It’s largely based on indoctrinating local policy officials all the way down to professional development [given] to the educators, and that trickles down to indoctrinating our students with a very left, progressive agenda,” she continued.

Netflix will not be picking up a second season of First Kill, its teen vampire drama series executive produced by Emma Roberts.
