Is there a suicide prevention hot-line for teacher unions? There oughta be. “A half-century ago, teachers unions had a place in the American public. Now they have forgotten their place … going from protectors … to enablers of greed and malfeasance.” Half of America now sees teacher unions in a negative light. And the unions … Continue reading The Teacher Union War On Parents
Meet Gregory Salcido … a pontificating teacher-snot who strutted tuff-tuff in front of a high school history class of sixteen-year-olds. Talking big … talking rough … talking smart-ass … and mocking the very warriors who protect his right to open his foul mouth … and let his spectacular ignorance spill out. “Think about the people … Continue reading The Pontificating Teacher-Snot
Homeschoolers ... you're next. The feds have captured the public schools ... and now they wanna make sure you can never escape. Orwell yourself and come to terms with what awaits your children on the horizon of government controlled education. Huxley yourself into the world of tomorrow when they will be plugged into lifetime situations based … Continue reading Education’s Armageddon: Homeschooling
Common Core just won’t die. It’s alive, alright. Maybe under an alias, but it’s the same old poison … spawning troubling stuff. Half-time band-shows that disrespect law enforcement. Kindergarten teachers hosting “Transition” ceremonies … for a five-year-old boy who fancies himself a girl. How about Black Lives Matter curriculum guides? Hijab days? Sanctuary elementary schools? Co-ed bathrooms? Or fifth graders … Continue reading Common Core: The Zombie Reform
All that's left of Columbus Day is a sale on runny ricotta ... and some crappy cannolis. As far as I can figure, somebody put dead Christopher Columbus on trial … sent his bones to prison ... where he was strung up by righteous liberals. So this is a sort of ghost holiday. It's here ... … Continue reading GOOD-BYE, COLUMBUS
Middle school fads ain’t what they used to be. Forget Silly Bandz, jean skirts, and Abercrombie. Those were all run-of-the-mill fads. Rages that raged … and then vanished very quickly. . That was innocent stuff … but innocence ain’t so plentiful anymore. Schools have hardened kids with grit and rigor. Ordealed them with testing mania. … Continue reading The Newest Middle School Fad: Socialism
It’s all too clear that there are some schools that think they must save your children … from you. Yes. You. Doctrinaire teachers, administrators, and boards of education have become presumptuous and smug. And their contempt for parents is grounded in their surety that … in all matters, not just academics. … parents fall short. … Continue reading Pushing Parents Around
Anne LaValle, New York's most relentless Anti-Common Core mother, reminds us of an unpleasant anniversary. Five years ago, every 8th grader in New York State was required to write an essay validating this statement: "A structured work day of 8 hours of work, 8 hours of rest and 8 hours of recreation is best not only … Continue reading Yes! It’s THAT Bad!
Geniuses are the most dangerous creatures in the universe ... and do you know why God made so few? To limit the suffering of teachers. Dweebers are educational pests. They make these fly-by observations … scurry back to their sticky keyboards … and tell real-deal teachers how to do their jobs. Let’s imagine those same … Continue reading Happy Teacher Exasperation Month!
"After 32 years ... I couldn't take it any more. I vowed to fight CC ... It was killing me to do the ridiculous and stupid things that the supervisor and principal thought were necessary. They were able to brainwash the young teachers... [and] if teachers talked negatively about CC, they could be easily replaced. … Continue reading The End of Wisdom
