Keele University Cancels All Aluminum Research after Scientist Links Aluminum in Vaccines to Human Health Problems

The UK’s prestigious Keele University is suddenly shutting down the work of world-renowned aluminum expert, Christopher Exley, Ph.D. Keele is aggressively blocking donations for aluminum research and suppressing any science that exposes the toxic side of the vaccine industry.

University officials shut down Exley’s website and are actively blocking any charitable funds to his research team. These philanthropic funds have been used for nearly four decades to support Exley’s research on the bio-inorganic chemistry of aluminum and to better understand aluminum’s role in neurodegenerative diseases. Exley’s passion is “to understand aluminum in all living things” and to show how aluminum’s impact on human health represents “the greatest untold story of science.” Exley’s work has been cited in Alzheimer’s research, among other important public health issues. His research group has published important scientific insights in more than 200 peer-reviewed publications.

Landmark Case Could End Biden’s Student Debt Prison

Jessica was in her early 30s when she decided to pursue her MBA. She enrolled full-time at Columbia University after the school offered her a scholarship. To help with the rest of her tuition, Jessica relied on $72,000 in loans. Most were federal, but one was private through Wells Fargo.

That was nearly 25 years ago. Today, despite her making regular payments, Jessica’s debt has increased to roughly $200,000 — and it’s still growing.

“I’ve paid nearly $61,000 so far,” said Jessica, who lives in New York City and does consulting work for government-funded entities. “Yet in those ten years, the $72,000 principal didn’t go down one cent. All that money went to interest.”

The Department of Justice and ADL Call On Supreme Court to Rule That Students Do Not Have Right to Free Speech Off Campus

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a cut-and-dry First Amendment case on April 28th, but the erratic Department of Justice has thrown its hat into the ring in hopes of complicating the matter.

In B.L. v. Mahanoy Area School District, a 14-year-old girl was punished by her administrators at her school for writing “Fuck School fuck softball fuck cheer fuck everything.” on Snapchat after failing to make her varsity cheer team. She was subsequently disciplined by her junior varsity squad after a tattle tale showed the message to her coach.

While established legal precedents allow public schools to police what students say during school hours, landmark cases like Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District (1969) defend the right to free speech off campus.

Because the case only deals with expressions of obscene language, the left-wing interest group ACLU has decided to represent the plaintiff in Mahoney.

George Soros Pledges Massive $500 Million Gift to Radical Bard College in New York

You have to wonder what Soros expects to get in return for this gift. Is the school going to start churning out left wing DA candidates or something?

The Washington Examiner reports:

George Soros gives $500 million to New York liberal arts college

Billionaire George Soros pledged $500 million to a private liberal arts college in New York, one of the largest single donations given to a university in higher education history, the school said.

Leon Botstein, president of Bard College, said the money will help establish a $1 billion endowment, calling Soros’s gift the “most historic moment” since the school was founded in 1860.

Soros previously pledged $1 billion to help establish the Open Society University Network, which globally connects educational institutions to integrate curricula and encourage civic engagement among students. Bard College is one of the founding partners of the network.

Facts Don’t Care About Your Diversity Training Certificate—A Critique of Credentialism

One of the most commonly heard debater’s challenges, online and in real life, is: “Are YOU an expert in (X)?” The obvious if generally unspoken corollary is: “If not, then shut up.” However, very often, you don’t need to. There is little evidence that a smart normal citizen, capable of effective analysis of empirical data, cannot criticize the work of academic or journalistic “experts” in most fields—or any reason that he or she should be intimidated by these title-holders.

Florida School Forcing ‘Re-Education’ On Students Who Don’t Want To Wear Masks

Students at Clearwater High School in Florida have been warned that they will be “re-educated” on the importance of wearing a mask if they are seen on school premises not wearing a face covering.

An advisory posted on the school’s website regarding face mask policy tells students, teachers, staff and any visitors that masks are mandatory on all school property as well as on school buses.

The section on “noncompliance” then spells out the punishment for anyone caught flouting the rules.

Vile public school teachers now compiling “lists” to “expose” parents who reject far-left curriculum

“Critical race theory” (CRT) activists in Loudoun County, Va., the wealthiest county in the United States, are attempting to destroy the lives of parents throughout the district who oppose children being brainwashed into the doctrines of anti-white racism while at public school. -- And angry mob of far-left extremists living in the Washington, D.C.-area district is reportedly trying to “infiltrate” various anti-CRT groups organized by their opponents in order to “expose” the members of these groups – using “hackers” if necessary.

Parents sue Los Angeles teachers union & school district for ‘holding children hostage’ to political agenda with ongoing closures

Four Los Angeles families have sued the teachers union and the second-largest US school district for failing their duty to serve the interests of students, depriving their children of in-person learning by keeping schools closed.

The suit, which was filed this week in Los Angeles County Superior Court, accuses the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) of breaching its responsibility to students by letting teachers dictate when schools shuttered amid the Covid-19 pandemic can reopen. The other defendants, the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) union and its president, Cecily Myart-Cruz, allegedly pursued their own “personal and ideological” agendas without regard for the students.

San Diego Teachers Who Fought To Keep Schools Closed Are Now Providing In-Person Lessons To Migrant Children.. And Parents Are PISSED

Some San Diego teachers are providing in-person instruction to migrant children, while San Diego public school students remain in virtual school, and parents are rightfully pissed.

Teachers from San Diego County Office of Education as well as other nonprofit organizations began providing educational services on Monday to some of the 500 minors who arrived at the southern border from Texas and Arizona over the weekend.

San Diego teachers will provide the minors with lessons in English and arts for the duration of their stay, which is expected to last until July, KPBS-TV has reported.

GoFundMe Bans Fundraiser For Parents Against Critical Theory After Virginia School Board Intervenes

GoFundMe has removed a group of Loudoun County, Virginia parents against critical race theory from the fundraising website, caving to left-wing demands from teachers and school board members in a district that has become ground zero in the fight against the use of the radical, racist curriculum.

Created by Loudoun County parent Scott Mineo just weeks ago, the page had already raised around $4,000 dollars on March 25th, when Mineo says he was notified by the site of the page’s ban.

Just three days prior, Charlotte McConnell (who refers herself with the pronoun of “they”), a former Loudoun County School Board “Equity Committee” member had zeroed in on the fundraising page, organizing with fellow past and present school system officials and employees to get the page removed.

Speaking to the Washington Free Beacon, Mineo said that the district has made a “grave mistake” in the political targeting of parents, exposing themselves and their agenda for what they truly are.

Teacher at elite Virginia school caught on camera forcing controversial race theory on students (VIDEO)

A Virginia school is under fire after video footage showed a teacher berating a student for refusing to acknowledge racial differences. The teacher’s Critical Race Theory sermon is not the only woke scandal to hit the district.

Located on the outskirts of Washington, DC, the Loudoun County Public School District is one of the wealthiest in the nation, with the average household there pulling in $136,000 per year. It’s also emerged lately as a hotbed of Critical Race Theory (CRT) – a set of ideas that puts race at the center of every human interaction, views the US as “structurally racist,” and maintains that “white supremacy” and “white privilege” permeate every institution in the country.

Diversity Program at U. Michigan Accused of Having Toxic Work Environment

Campus diversity program accused of having toxic environment

University of Michigan’s ADVANCE program has been hit with allegations of discrimination, with former employees accusing its leadership of allowing microaggressions and a toxic environment to fester, among other claims.

The program employs about a dozen people and is focused on faculty recruitment, retention, climate and leadership development as it works “to address necessary institutional changes to support the needs of a diverse faculty in all fields,” its website reads.

An investigative piece by The Michigan Daily, the school’s student-run newspaper, found 12 alleged instances of discrimination and a hostile work environment spanning eight years from 2012 to 2020.

Among the allegations was that women of color were told their writing was not eloquent or effective and that microaggressions were common, according to the March 16 report.

Schools Gone Woke: One America Educator Speaks Out

I am an American educator who began teaching nearly two decades ago. During that time, I have taught at some of the most prestigious private secondary schools in the United States. Starting about five years ago, these schools began to be consumed by woke ideology.

When I say “consumed by woke ideology” I mean that these schools are obsessed with sophomoric and divisive notions of diversity, equality, and justice; increasingly hostile to freedom of expression; addicted to cancelling anything that offends the woke movement; and prioritising activism over understanding as the goal of education.

Oxford University Academics Say Teaching Sheet Music is 'White Supremacy'

Sheet music is now canceled!

From Breitbart, "Woke Oxford Music Profs Claim Western Sheet Music Has 'Complicity to White Supremacy': Report":

The Telegraph reports that University of Oxford academics have complained that "Teaching notation which has not 'shaken off its connection to its colonial past' would be a 'slap in the face' for some students", as it has "complicity in white supremacy".

In response to widespread Black Lives Matter protesters and riots last year in the United Kingdom, music educators at Oxford University have joined the wider iconoclastic movement which has been sweeping through British academia.

Academics proposed changing the way music notation is taught because it is a "colonialist representational system", with professors seeking to focus less on white European heritage and culture, according to documents seen by The Telegraph.

Cops investigate Virginia teachers' Facebook group for naming parents who were 'against critical race theory' and urging members to 'gather information' on them

Virginia police are investigating an 'anti-racist' Facebook group that named the parents of students who members say are 'against critical race theory'.

The Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County group - which reportedly includes teachers and school board members - shared personal details of those they say had opposed moves to teach the controversial curriculum.

It urged followers to 'gather information' on them and encouraged online hackers to silence critics of the theory, The Daily Wire reports. Parent Cherly Onderchain told Fox News she was on the 'hit list', adding: 'Their goal is silence.'

Challenging our public school district’s obedience of county ‘health’ ‘orders’: Superintendent claims forever ‘health orders’ are legal, then refuses to explain/cite how, then refuses further communication. 100 teachers briefed; zero support! (11 of ?)

Perhaps the most helpful communication is a summary of events to now, an update, and preview of coming events (articles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).

Summary: The California “lockdown” to “flatten the curve and keep hospitals running” has lasted since March 3, 2020, despite statutory limit for emergency powers due to “beyond control” hospitals lasting only 60 days. Thankfully, our local hospitals have been in full control of patient numbers at all times.

As a NorCal public school teacher, I inquired to our district’s leadership and teachers’ union how their negotiated policy to “obey” county “health” “orders” is legal given the above reasonable limits to dictatorial authority.

Rutgers Becomes First US College To Make COVID Jabs Mandatory For Students

Not long after Connecticut, California and a handful of other states announced plans to move up the start date for when all adults will be eligible to receive the COVID vaccine in the US, Rutgers, the largest public university in the state of New Jersey, became the first public school in the US to announce that students wouldn't be allowed back to campus in the fall unless they had been fully vaccinated.

Administrators said President Joe Biden's mandate for everyone to be eligible for a vaccine by May, made during the president's first official press conference yesterday, should give students plenty of time to get their shots, UPI reports.

Halton Arp Intrinsic Red Shift


Halton Christian "Chip" Arp (March 21, 1927 -- December 28, 2013) was an American astronomer. He was known for his 1966 Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, which (it was later realized) catalogues many examples of interacting and merging galaxies. Arp was also known as a critic of the Big Bang theory and for advocating a non-standard cosmology incorporating intrinsic redshift."

American Education: Child Indoctrination, Struggle Sessions and Debt Slavery

Seemingly overnight, a large segment of America has gone insane. We’re not talking about the culture of paranoia and safety that has metastasized in the wake of COVID-19 hysteria. We’re talking about the ideological shift, particularly on cultural issues, that has occurred since the start of the Obama Administration.

To pick an easy example, it would have been fairly uncontroversial even five years ago to say that men should not be allowed to compete in women’s sports, regardless of what they might subjectively “identify as.” And yet, this is now a subject contention across a number of sports, including mixed martial arts and powerlifting. What’s more, having the wrong opinion and expressing it publicly might make you the subject of a public shaming, up to and including losing your job and being de facto blacklisted from your industry.

Concord Cancels School Due To Bad Reactions To COVID-19 Vaccine

The Concord School District abruptly canceled school on Monday after a flood of teachers and other district staffers called in sick one day after many received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

Parents in the SAU 8 district received phone calls, emails, and text messages notifying them there would not be school at just before 6:30 a.m. The alerts stated it was due to the level of teacher absenteeism across the district. The decision was made as principals began fielding calls from educators early on Monday that they were sick.

School Superintendent Kathleen Murphy said the closure was more than just teachers though — many staffers, including district office employees, also got shots Sunday, and reported adverse reactions to them.

STUPID is the new “progress” … Oregon trying to abolish math, claiming it’s racist

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) has launched a new instruction program for public school teachers throughout the state that claims the subject of mathematics is “racist” and promotes “white supremacy.”

The department sent out an online pamphlet called, “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction” that contains a section entitled, “Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction.” In it, teachers are urged to reimagine the nature of math to make it more “inclusive” for black and brown people who apparently have trouble understanding it.

Students should not necessarily be told that technically wrong answers in math are existentially “wrong,” the pamphlet suggests. Claiming that an answer to a math question is either right or wrong is inherently “racist,” it goes on to conclude, instructing teachers about ways to abolish this type of “white supremacist” thinking from the classroom.

This woman points out that this ideology is turning children against their parents. She is ultimately cut off by one of the white board members.

The Post Millennial reports:

WATCH: Black woman slams Ohio school board for critical race theory indoctrination of students

A black woman spoke up at a School Board meeting in Beachwood, Ohio, to take issue with the board’s use of critical race and gender theory to divide families, pit students against their parents, and create a racist environment where none had existed before.

“If a lot more of the residents knew of the mess you’ve made of this school system via the curriculum as policy you would all probably lose your position in the district,” she said.

Through her required face mask, the woman identified herself as Ms. Taylor, a Beachwood resident for over 20 years, and said that she raised her children in the community. Her children are successful professionals.

Children Fined $436, Required to Work it Off at $10/Hour for Missing Online Classes

A new report out of the Guardian exposes an insidious scheme by police and school officials to fine students who miss too many online classes. Tracie Higgins was one of these parents who was shocked when police showed up at her home to issue her teenage son a $439 fine for missing Zoom meetings for class.

Higgins told the Guardian the reason for the online absences was due to faulty school technology, including a Chromebook that wouldn’t charge. But police and the school district reportedly did not care, so Higgins’s son was extorted.

Debra Pratt, another mother from the same district was also confronted by armed agents of the state who showed up at her home to extort her son for the same reason. Her son Jason racked up 28 unexcused absences online, including while he was battling the coronavirus.

California has adopted an ethnic studies curriculum, but Palestine has been scrubbed out of it

California has become the first state in the country to adopt an ethnic studies curriculum for its high schools, but the history of Palestine has been scrubbed from the educational program.

On Thursday, California State Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the curriculum. “We are reminded daily that racism is not only a legacy of the past but a clear and present danger,” said the board’s president Linda Darling-Hammond. “We must understand this history if we are finally to end it.”

In 2019, the bill was held up after some claimed the program singled out Israel and failed to adequately address antisemitism. The backlash was fueled by right-wing, pro-Israel groups and the app Act.IL (which is partially funded by the Israeli government) called on its users to oppose its implentation.

Higher Ed Approaches the Antiracism Training Abyss

Free expression and open inquiry in higher education are under attack by ideologues seeking to impose neo-Marxist “critical” theories, most prominently critical race theory, which places race at the center of all political and social issues.

Critical race theory training, misleadingly characterized as “antiracism” training, has spread widely throughout higher education and is often compared to Maoist struggle sessions, where dissent incurs public shaming, job loss, and harassment. This training often turns into race-shaming and Kafka-trapping, using denial of racism as proof of racism. The result is self-imposed racial conflict and systemic retaliatory discrimination masquerading as “equity.”

Columbia University in New York is planning to conduct six graduation ceremonies for students according to their race, ethnic backgrounds, income level, and other self-identifications—a move critics labeled as undoing the work of the civil rights era and taking a step toward re-segregating society.

The school’s website details the upcoming graduation ceremonies for Native, Asian, “Latinx,” and black students scheduled for late April for Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies, and Barnard College. Another ceremony, “FLI Graduation” is for “first generation and/or low income community,” and the “Lavender” graduation is intended for the “LGBTIAQ+ community.”

Florida Schools Reopened Without Becoming Covid-19 Superspreaders

As school districts around the U.S. continue to grapple with whether to reopen classrooms amid the coronavirus pandemic, data shows Florida started in-person learning without turning schools into superspreaders.

The state was one of the earliest to resume in-person instruction in August, following an executive order by Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran that directed districts to provide families the option of classroom learning five days a week or risk losing funding. The mandate triggered outcry among some teachers and parents who considered it risky, and drew unsuccessful lawsuits aimed at blocking it.

In the seven months since, Florida schools have avoided major outbreaks of Covid-19 and maintained case rates lower than those in the wider community. Mr. Corcoran said 80% of students in Florida are now attending schools in-person full- or part-time.

Florida is showing how individual states will have to wage their own war to defeat the madness of critical race theory

Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis has signalled his intent not to have critical race theory taught in the state’s schools. More governors need to follow his lead, as it’s clear the federal government will do nothing to prevent it.

When Joe Biden went on a spree of executive orders to overturn Donald Trump’s policies, one of the biggest mistakes he made was to eliminate the 1776 project designed to prevent critical race theory being taught at school pupils. In doing so, Biden single-handedly destroyed a move that kept anti-American ideas out of American schools.

Today, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education called on Penn to stop engaging in viewpoint discrimination and promptly process the students’ application for recognition.

“In refusing to officially acknowledge the hunting club, Penn’s administration is missing the mark,” said Zach Greenberg, FIRE senior program officer. “Penn must afford these students the same rights and privileges it already provides to its hundreds of student groups.”

Critics describe CRT as un-American and at least far-left, if not a form of Marxist ideology.

Liberal University of Vermont Professor Stands Up for His White Students; Resists Calls to Resign

A soft-spoken liberal professor at the University of Vermont has had enough of the anti-white abuse he faces at his work place.

Aaron Kindsvatter, who teaches courses on education and mental health, published a video on March 8th detailing the institutional discrimination and systematic racial dehumanization he and other whites on the UVM campus face on a daily basis.

Kindsvatter speaks anecdotally about how he struggled when his father was dying. He noted that his father dedicated his life to bettering the human condition. Rather than offer sympathy or respect, university faculty and activists began attacking him for his immutable racial characteristics during this tough time.

Keeping Georgetown Law School Profs from Talking About Black Students' Low Grades Helps No One

Some simple, obvious facts are too politically incorrect for academics to state publicly. Georgetown University just fired law professor Sandra Sellers and forced out professor David Batson. Sellers' offense? "I end up having this angst every semester that a lot of my lower ones are blacks," Sellers' said in discussion with another professor at the end of a Zoom call.

Batson's offense? He didn't condemn the statement, but instead sympathized with Sellers’ concerns. “What drives me crazy is… my own unconscious biases playing out in the scheme of things” might be responsible for their poor scores, he said. The logic is that blacks do poorly in college because of professors' biases.

Georgetown Law Dean Bill Treanor said he was "appalled" by these statements, but all academics know that this is true.

But Gilley said university brass lodged a copyright strike against his video this week, forcing him to post an edited version that removed his peers’ comments.

While some Idaho school boards already allow staffers to carry, Rep. Chad Christensen, a Republican who sponsored the bill, claimed that it shouldn’t be up to officials to make determinations about constitutional rights.

Canary Mission, which is funded by shadowy wealthy Jews affiliated with the Netanyahu government, “doxes” nationalists, Muslims and socialists who publicly criticize Zionism.

The blacklist allows Jews to utilize their strong influence over American institutions to deny victims of its defamation employment and educational opportunities, make them targets of lawsuits, and even get them harassed by the FBI.

WTF Is Happening?? New York City School Takes Progressive 'Wokeness' To Entirely New Level

What happened in America that brought us to the point of this insanity? Where did we all go wrong to think in any world that this is normal? If this is not an alarm to all Americans to pay more attention to what is happening - to have a come to Jesus moment with themselves and their friends who buy into this.

A Manhattan private school aiming to use more “inclusive language” is encouraging its students to stop using the terms “mom,” “dad” and “parents” as the words make assumptions about the children’s home lives.

The Grace Church School in Noho — which offers academic courses for junior kindergarten through 12th grade — issued a 12-page guide to students and staff explaining the school’s grand mission of inclusivity.

The detailed guide recommends using the terms “grown-ups,” “folks,” “family” or “guardians” as alternatives to “mom,” “dad” and “parents.” It additionally suggests using the term “caregiver” instead of “nanny/babysitter.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear young people.

Those aged people at the front of the classroom have gone crazy.

It's okay to ignore them!

GOING VIRAL: Virginia Teacher Slams Critical Race Theory at Virginia School Board Meeting (VIDEO)

One Courageous Teacher Speaks Out.

Recently, a brave teacher attended the Loudoun County School Board in Virginia. This school district is rated number four in the state of Virginia and has made national headlines for moving away from Dr. Seuss from associating him with their reading celebration due to the “racial undertones” in several of his books.

This Virginia teacher reached out to The Gateway Pundit following the meeting in Loudoun County. The teacher who runs Patriotic Educators on Instagram told this reporter Loudoun County schools policies and leadership trickle down to the rest of the school districts and pave the way to further indoctrinate the rest of the state.

While only ONE teacher from this district has spoken up, it is rare and extremely dangerous for teachers to speak up due to cancel-culture and horrible backlash.

California ‘Ethnic Studies Curriculum’ Proposal Gets Worse, Heavy On Critical Race Theory and Anti-Israel Activism

The saga continues: California’s Department of Education has released yet another iteration of its neo-Marxist-inspired, Critical Theory-based Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum for public schools. Even after five years of work (and who knows how much money) the latest (fourth!) version of the ESMC—to be voted on next week—has managed, somehow, to be worse than the last.

Last month, we detailed a litany of historical and epistemological problems with the neo-Marxist-inspired California Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC) in our post, California Proposed Ethnic Studies Curriculum A Subterfuge For Anti-American And Anti-Zionist Activism.

This Texas School Never Required Kids to Mask or Distance

No masks. No social distancing. No mandatory quarantines and no shutdowns. In the Peaster Independent School District in Texas, life went on as usual when school started in fall 2020 and everything was fine.

In fact, as the school year rolled on with homecoming and other fall activities including sports and the annual pancake dinner and festival going on as scheduled, the district actually experienced higher enrollment and average daily attendance than last year, according to superintendent Lance Johnson.

In an interview with CBS, Johnson said most students are on track to finish the school year on grade level, closing the learning gap that occurred when schools shut down in spring 2020.

Most interesting, though, was the response of the parents and community. The district surveyed families before opening. Fifty-five percent said they’d send the kids to school if the buildings opened with masks and social distancing mandated.

Georgetown Law professor is fired after saying black students are 'plain at bottom of her class almost every semester' and her colleague is suspended for failing to correct her after they accidentally recorded their zoom chat

Georgetown Law has fired one white professor and placed another on administrative leave after a video of their discussion about a black student was condemned on social media.

Dean Bill Treanor anounced on Thursday that the school had ended its relationship with Professor Sandra Sellers, 62, after the video showed her complaining on Zoom that black students were predominantly at the bottom of her class.

She was speaking to Professor David Batson, who was placed on leave on Thursday for not correcting Sellers pending a further investigation by the prestigious law school, which was attended by former first daughter Tiffany Trump.

California’s Proposed “Ethnic Studies” Curriculum Urges Students to Chant to Aztec Deity of Human Sacrifice and Cannibalism – Calls For “Counter-Genocide” Against White Christians

Christian prayer in public school is prohibited, but now the Marxists in California are trying to force millions of students to chant to the Aztec gods of human sacrifice and cannibalism.

California’s proposed “ethnic studies” curriculum calls for the “decolonization” of American society and a “counter-genocide” against white Christians.

The curriculum would also require students to chant to the Aztec ‘gods’ of human sacrifice and cannibalism.

Miss. School Slammed for Assignment Instructing Students to 'Pretend Like You Are' Enslaved

A Mississippi school district is facing criticism after a class assignment asked middle schoolers to put themselves in the shoes of an enslaved person, and write letters to friends and family.

The assignment given to eighth-graders at Purvis Middle School told students to "pretend like you are a slave working on a Mississippi plantation," according to a screenshot of the assignment that Black Lives Matter Mississippi posted to Twitter.

The students were then instructed to write a letter "to your family back in Africa or in another American state" describing their lives, their journey to America and their daily tasks.

"You may also want to tell about the family you live with/work for and how you pass your time when you aren't working," the assignment said.

The image prompted outrage on social media, including from Black Lives Matter Mississippi's social media manager, Jeremy Marquell Bridges, who said he was sent a screenshot of the assignment by a parent.

200 academics back lecturer under attack from 'proud Zionists'

Two hundred academics from Britain and the US have signed an open letter defending prominent British Professor David Miller who is under attack for criticising the Zionist state of Israel. Pro-Israel groups describing themselves as "proud Zionists" have been leading a vicious campaign to have the sociology professor sacked from his post at the University of Bristol.

Miller has spent 15 years tracking the nefarious effects of the fossil fuel lobby, the pharmaceutical lobby, and the tobacco lobby, as well as state lobbies that promote Islamophobia, such as those of Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). However, it is Miller's work in exposing the work of the pro-Israel lobby that has angered groups like the Union of Jewish Students (UJS), which is leading the campaign against him. The union describes itself as a "proud" Zionist organisation. Its own constitution commits members of the UJS to "making an enduring commitment" to Israel.

Arizona State Dean Thinks Grading a Student’s Writing is a Form of Racism and White Supremacy

Arizona State Dean: Grading Writing Based On Quality Is ‘Racist,’ Promotes ‘White Language Supremacy’

An Arizona State University Associate Dean penned a 358-page book detailing how grading student’s writing is a form of racism and white supremacy.

In a book titled “Labor-Based Grading Contracts: Building Equity and Inclusion in the Compassionate Writing Classroom,” professor Asao Inoue encourages teachers to ditch grading for a “labor-based” grading system wherein students earn grades based on their effort. The quality of a student’s writing would not help or hinder their course grade.

“This book focuses on one kind of grading contract, one that calculates final course grades purely by the labor students complete, not by any judgments of the quality of their writing,” Inoue writes. “While the qualities of student writing is still at the center of the classroom and feedback, it has no bearing on the course grade.”

The Brave New World of Children’s Propaganda

[M]illions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions of children are in process of growing up to buy the local despot’s ideological product and, like well-trained soldiers, to respond with appropriate behavior to the trigger words implanted in those young minds by the despot’s propagandists. -- Wokeness is the propaganda of the despots of our time. Children are inundated with this propaganda by way of trainings they receive at school, books they find at the library, programs they watch, and people they follow online. As Huxley says, their young and impressionable minds are as yet unable to sort through the information they receive to understand what is true and right.

'MASK APARTHEID' Parents furious as schoolkids told if they don’t wear masks they’ll have to sit at back of class

SCHOOLKIDS have been told if they refuse to wear face masks they will be made to sit at the back of the classroom.

Parents are furious at the measures to segregate pupils from their peers when they return from March 8, with one blasting it as a "mask apartheid".

They fear their children will face discrimination and be forced to miss out on lessons and social activities.

Primary school kids do not have to wear masks when pupils return next week.

But secondary school students will be asked to wear them if it is not possible to socially distance at two metres apart.

Student Journalist Sues University President for Allegedly Forbidding Journalism

Jared Nally is fighting for his rights — and the rights of student reporters across the country.

Nally wants Haskell Indian Nations University, a public institution operated by the federal government, to answer for the 90 days he was silenced, without any due process, under a directive that banned him from engaging in basic acts of journalism. He also wants Haskell to restore over $10,000 of funding that the university inexplicably shorted the newspaper, approve its registration as a student organization, and revise the unconstitutional policy on campus speech used to issue the directive.

Today, backed by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, Nally and The Indian Leader filed a federal lawsuit demanding just that.

L.A. Teachers Union Pushes Back on Plan For Reopening Schools Due To ‘Structural Racism’ (VIDEO)

The UTLA (United Teachers of Los Angeles), the largest and most powerful teachers union in California, rejected Governor Gavin Newsome’s school reopening plan. Its leaders labeled it a “recipe for propagating structural racism.”

The plan was announced by Newsom and his Democrat supermajority in the state legislature. It provides $6.6 billion in taxpayer funding to accelerate the school reopening process while coronavirus cases drop.

“$2 billion would fund safety measures to support in-person instruction, such as personal protective equipment, ventilation upgrades, and COVID-19 testing. $4.6 billion would fund expanded learning opportunities, such as summer school, tutoring, and mental health services,” the governor’s office press release said.

After Leading School Closures, Berkeley Teachers' Union President Spotted Dropping Daughter Off at In-Person Preschool

Parent groups are crying "hypocrisy" after a video surfaced showing the president of the Berkeley teachers union dropping off his two-year-old daughter at an in-person preschool.

Matt Meyer, president of the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, has fought for what he called the "gold standard" for the teachers he represents — saying Berkeley schools should only reopen to in-person learning when educators are vaccinated, among other criteria.

A tentative plan between the Berkeley Unified School District and Berkeley Federation of Teachers in mid-February would see preschoolers through second grade returning to class at the end of March and other grades staggering back to in-person learning through April, according to Berkeleyside.

High school in Washington finally opens up, teaches hypochondria and paranoia, and stuffs band students into suffocating cocoons

Public schools in Washington State are beginning to open their doors again, but with bizarre stipulations and behavioral controls. A high school in East Wenatchee is dividing band class into two separate groups and placing the students in individual tent-shaped cocoons. Students can be seen brandishing French horns, flutes, trumpets and even a tuba, as they are crammed into these miniature tents and told to play their instrument for the band.

The Wenatchee and Eastmont high schools only meet part time now, and the students are written up if they do not keep a mask on their face throughout the day. Only three students are allowed per lunch table and most of them leave during lunch just to get some fresh air.

High school in Washington finally opens up, teaches hypochondria and paranoia, and stuffs band students into suffocating cocoons

Even though the schools are beginning to meet up, they continue to implement abusive controls that do not promote individual health. These controlling stipulations only perpetuate the fear and paranoia by telling healthy students they can spread infections they do not have, that their immune system is incapable of handling its environment. This top-down manipulation is destructive to future generations and the mental trajectory of future societies.

How Long Until They Come for Darwin?

Charles Darwin has been kept sacrosanct during the Great Awokening because his On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life is about plants and animals rather than about humans and thus is a stick in the eye to Christian creationists. But … a dozen years later in 1871, Darwin applied his “favoured races” logic to humans in The Descent of Man, and the Woke are gearing up to cancel that book on its 150th anniversary.

After all, we now know that race doesn’t exist.

SUNY Geneseo Suspends Education Student for Saying ‘A Man Is A Man, A Woman Is A Woman’

State University of New York (SUNY) Geneseo has suspended an education student from required teaching programs after he expressed his views on biology in a social media post. In one video, the student says that “a man is a man,” and “a woman is a woman.” The university states that the student’s conservative social media posts call into question his ability to “maintain a classroom environment protecting the mental and emotional well-being of all of [his] students.”

Education student Owen Stevens received an email from SUNY Geneseo, informing him that he was suspended from his field teaching programs after his classmates saw his Instagram videos, according to a report by Daily Wire.

“A man is a man, a woman is a woman. A man is not a woman, and a woman is not a man,” said Stevens in one of the videos in question. “A man cannot become a woman, and a woman cannot become a man.”

2+2=5? Bill Gates funnels $1 MILLION to push 'math is racist' narrative

With a $1 million check from the Gates Foundation, leading universities and local governments are building an effort to bring “anti-racism” efforts to mathematics.

A Pathway to Equitable Instruction exists to address “barriers to math equity” by offering “guidance and resources for educators to use now as they plan their curriculum, while also offering opportunities for ongoing self-reflection as they seek to develop an anti-racist math practice.”

Among the group’s content developers are Ruth Basket, Mirna Maranda-Welsh, and Malane Morales-Van Hecke from the Los Angeles County Office of Education’s Multilingual Academic Support Unit; David Chun, the Director of K-12 Mathematics at the Sacramento County Office of Education; and Mindy Shacklett, a Coordinator of Mathematics at the San Diego County Office of Education. Multiple professors from the University of California system and Loyola Marymount University also worked on the project.

Math education prof: 2+2 = 4 'trope' 'reeks of white supremacy patriarchy'

Math professors and educators at leading American universities have taken to Twitter in order to debate whether math is racist.

Some asserted that objective mathematics is rooted in “white supremacist patriarchy” and white social constructs.

The debate itself was rooted in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, in which citizens of a fictional totalitarian state believe that 2 plus 2 equals 5 as a result of government propaganda.

Laurie Rubel, who teaches math education at Brooklyn College, says that the idea of math being culturally neutral is a "myth," and that asking whether 2 plus 2 equals 4 "reeks of white supremacist patriarchy."

“Y’all must know that the idea that math is objective or neutral IS A MYTH,” she tweeted.

Bill Gates Bankrolling Educational Organization That Says Math is Racist - Pathway group says minorities getting answers wrong is because of “white supremacy.”

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is bankrolling an activist educational group that believes math is racist and that arriving at an objective answer is an example of “white supremacy.”

Yes, really.

A conglomerate of 25 educational organizations called A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction asserts that asking students to find the correct answer is an “inherently racist practice.”

The organization’s website lists the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as its only donor.

“In fact, over the past decade, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has awarded over of $140 million to a variety of groups associated with Pathway. Their “antiracist resources” are at the epicenter of a new training course for teachers offered by the Oregon Department of Education throughout the state,” reports National File.

“Three of the most prominent organizations receiving grant money from the Gates’ are The Education Trust, Teach Plus, and WestEd, all non-profit 501c organizations.”

Students demand removal of George Washington statue...at University of Washington

The University of Washington's Black Student Union has garnered nearly 8,000 signatures on a petition that demands the school remove a statue of George Washington, the school's - and the state's - namesake.

The petition claims the statue "perpetuates white supremacy and preserves its historical imposition," because George Washington owned slaves.

The offending statue is part of the university's history: It is the product of a years-long campaign by the Daughters of the American Revolution, which raised $6,000 by "encourag[ing] schoolchildren from all over the state to contribute their pennies, no more than five cents apiece." The statue has stood on campus since 1909.

The petition also proposes cutting ties with the Seattle Police Department, disarming the university police, increasing funding for the American Ethnic Studies Department, and hiring more Black faculty members, among other policies.

Feds say Yale discriminates against Asian, white students in admissions

A Justice Department investigation has found Yale University is illegally discriminating against Asian American and white applicants, in violation of federal civil rights law, officials said Thursday.

Yale denied the allegation, calling it “meritless” and “hasty.”

The findings detailed in a letter to the college’s attorneys Thursday mark the latest action by the Trump administration aimed at rooting out discrimination in the college application process, following complaints from students about the application process at some Ivy League colleges. The Justice Department had previously filed court papers siding with Asian American groups who had levied similar allegations against Harvard University.

The two-year investigation concluded that Yale “rejects scores of Asian American and white applicants each year based on their race, whom it otherwise would admit,” the Justice Department said. The investigation stemmed from a 2016 complaint against Yale, Brown and Dartmouth.

Math: The Latest Battleground in the War Against Truth

In George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, set in the superstate of Oceania, the government propagates the absurd equation 2 + 2 = 5. Through steady indoctrination, and under the ever-watchful Thought Police, the citizens accept it as an unquestionable truth. The equation symbolizes the extinction of free thought in repressive totalitarian societies: facts, truths and objective reality are subordinated to political will and twisted to serve the authoritarian goals of the Party and its leader, Big Brother.

'Proud' Zionist group leading campaign to sack UK professor for criticising Israel

In another example pointing to the dangerous rise of cancel-culture and the abuse of allegations of anti-Semitism within anti-Palestinian groups, "Israel's fanatical advocates" are demanding the expulsion of prominent British Professor, David Miller, from his post over his remarks about Zionism at a virtual meeting last week.

Miller has spent 15 years tracking the nefarious effects of the fossil fuel lobby, the pharmaceutical lobby, the tobacco lobby, as well as state lobbies that promote Islamophobia, such as those of Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

During the zoom meeting, the sociology professor, considered one of the world's leading experts on Islamophobia, denounced the state ideology of Israel as racist and called for an end to Zionism as a "functioning ideology of the world". He also blasted a number of pro-Israel groups who for a number of years have been leading a hostile campaign to have him sacked from his post at the University of Bristol.

Top Schools Swimming in Applicants After Dropping Tests Requirements While Other Schools Struggle

The New York Times reports:

Interest Surges in Top Colleges, While Struggling Ones Scrape for Applicants

Prestigious universities like Cornell never have a hard time attracting students. But this year, the admissions office in Ithaca, N.Y., is swimming in 17,000 more applications than it has ever received before, driven mostly by the school’s decision not to require standardized test scores during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We saw people that thought ‘I would never get into Cornell’ thinking, ‘Oh, if they’re not looking at a test score, maybe I’ve actually got a chance,’” said Jonathan Burdick, Cornell’s vice provost for enrollment.

But while selective universities like Cornell and its fellow Ivy League schools have seen unprecedented interest after waiving test scores, smaller and less recognizable schools are dealing with the opposite issue: empty mailboxes.

The Decline of the West: American Education Surrenders to "Equity"

Public education in the United States, if measured by results, has been producing graduates that are less competent in language skills and dramatically less well taught in the sciences and mathematics since 1964, when Scholastic Aptitude Test scores peaked. The decline in science and math skills has accelerated in the past decade according to rankings of American students compared to their peers overseas. A recent assessment, from 2015, placed the U.S. at 38th out of 71 countries in math and 24th in science. Among the 35 members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD), the United States came in at 30th in math and 19th in science. Those poor results must be placed in a context of American taxpayers spending more money per student than any other country in the world, so the availability of resources is not necessarily a factor in most school districts.

New Bill in Virginia Would Require Teachers to Undergo ‘Cultural Competency’ Training

Ever since the Democrats took over Virginia, they have been relentless about making radical changes there.

WTOP News reports:

Va. bill heading to governor’s desk would require teachers to get cultural competency training

A new bill headed to the Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s desk would require teachers to undergo training in cultural competency to get their teaching license in the state.

Identical bills passed through the state’s House of Delegates and Senate on Monday, leaving Northam’s signature as the final step.

The bill requires any person who is applying for a teaching license, as well as any teacher seeking to renew their license from the Virginia Board of Education, to complete training in cultural competency. History and social studies teachers applying for a license would also need an endorsement in African American history.

The legislation also requires the school board to include cultural competency in teacher, principal and superintendent evaluations.

High School Football Coach Terminated For Questioning BLM Curriculum

The Dedham Public School District terminated a high school football coach for privately disagreeing with the left-wing social justice curriculum being forced on his kids. He is now suing the school district.

David Flynn was the well-liked head football coach at Dedham High School. He has two children enrolled at different schools in the district, his daughter at Dedham Middle and his son at Dedham Public School elementary. He himself is an alumnus of the school system.

Flynn’s lawsuit is against the district’s superintendent, Michael Welch, the high school principal, Jim Fonest, and the high school’s athletic director, Stephen Traister. Judicial Watch is assisting the former coach, the same legal network that investigated Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
