Jeremy Currier and Seth Stephens should be the cybersecurity workers of tomorrow. Instead, they're at the center of a possible criminal investigationBy Benjamin HeroldNovember 7, 2018 Rochester Hills, Mich. The hack started small, in 7th grade, when they bypassed their middle schools internet filters to watch YouTube during lunch. But by the time Jeremy Currier and Seth Stephens were caught, more than two years later, their exploits had given them extraordinary reign over the computer network of the Rochester Community Schools, a well-to-do suburban district about 45 minutes outside Detroit. The teens had access to the logins, passwords, phone numbers, locker combinations, lunch ...

The band Bowling for Soup has a song called High School Never Ends. In it, the singer complains that he thought all the terrible things about high school would end once he graduated. Unfortunately, he discovers
The whole damned world is just as obsessed With whos the best dressed and whos having sex Whos got the money, who gets the honeys Whos kinda cute and whos just a messAnd you still dont have the right look And you dont have the right friends Nothing changes but the faces, the names and the trends High school never ends I couldnt help thinking of this song as I watched four videos this week of tattle-tales ...

Post Date: 2018-09-12 08:36:00 by Willie Green
Exercise. Playing a musical instrument. Eating salmon, avocado and nuts. All have the potential of making you smarter. Add to that the way you pray and the recipient of your prayers. At least in terms of college education, religion seems to be a factor in the attainment of a degree. That's according to a new study by the Pew Research Center that looks at the attainment of a four-year college degree in the United States according to religious affiliation. The largest share of educated adherents? Hindus. Nearly 80 percent of Hindus in this country have a college degree. (The majority of Hindus come from India). Following closely are the members of the Unitarian Universalist ...

Canadian Professor of Psychology, Jordan Peterson: A One-Man Conservative Wrecking Crew of PCism and Leftist Cultural Indoctrination (Vanity)
Post Date: 2018-08-10 13:26:59 by Liberator
I'm sure some of you have heard of Prof Jordan Peterson. He's a Canadian clinical psychologist with bonafides the Left can NOT refute or deny. His lectures and debates against liberals-Leftists in Freedom-Challenged Canada are giving them fits. HE is now inadvertently spearheading the conservative backlash and answer to the Left's blitz of coercive insanity and control of all sources of Truth in the US and entire West. One of Peterson's simple lesson for individuals as well as groups and nations: AVOID CHAOS. WE NEED ROUTINE, PURPOSE, and STRUCTURE. That brings us control, harmony, peace, and life satisfaction. Peterson's advice runs counter to the agenda of the Left, ...

A Michelangelo I am not but, still I am going to try and paint a picture for you. Not one on canvas, but one for your mind. Try to imagine, if you would, a large room, a very large room, say one that is five football fields long, three football fields wide, and one football field high. There are three doors in the room, one that everyone being tried walks through. Yes being tried, for the room is a court room. But not just any court room, this is the last court, it is a court with no appeal. It is a court with no prosecuting attorney and no defense attorneys. Each defendant stands on his own to be judged. That door is at the very east end of the room, close to the North East corner of ...

"White Privilege" is a Racist Concept, and Trying to Teach It is a Racist Act
Post Date: 2018-04-05 19:03:16 by 3-Dee
"White Privilege" is a Racist Concept, and Trying to Teach It is a Racist Act Posted at 4:30 pm on April 5, 2018 by Brandon Morse As I was writing an article earlier about a PTA at a North Carolina elementary school attempting to teach parents and kids about the concept of white privilege, it occurred to me that the true evil behind the concept and the spread of it isnt often talked about. The concept of white privilege is that because someone is born with white skin, that they have it far easier in society than those with darker skin. While I dont at all deny that other racial communitys have their own problems, to dismiss the fact ...

On "Fox & Friends," Abby Huntsman interviewed a Georgia middle school student who captured audio of her teacher ripping President Donald Trump and his "Make America Great Again" slogan. Josie Orihuela of Hampton Middle School near Atlanta began recording on her phone when sixth-grade teacher Johnetta Benton began reaming out the president. "When my president says let's Make America Great Again, when was he talking about?" Benton is heard asking, and later adding that Trump must mean when "[America] was great for Europeans."

New Center pamphlet features the horrors. Editor's note: The same "progressives" who have made American higher education into indoctrination chambers for cultural Marxism, identity racism and other anti-American ideas are now targeting our K-12 public schools. For instance: At the Edina School District in Edina, Minnesota, all employees, even bus drivers, must take "Equity and Racial Justice Training" instructing them that "dismantling white privilege" is at the core of the district's mission. They must acknowledge their racial guilt, and embrace the district's "equity" ideology. To enhance "cultural diversity," students at ...

A Pennsylvania school district is arming classrooms with buckets of rocks as a last-ditch defense against mass shooters.

Weve been trying to be proactive just in case, Mr. Helsel said. How can you aim a gun if youre being pelted with rocks?

Most of the students reportedly didnt have a problem with Lockes comments, but one was so distraught by the comments she was escorted to the ...

Delaware students can now choose their own race. This should end well
Post Date: 2018-02-14 19:45:27 by Tooconservative
The state of Delaware is poised to adopt what is known as Regulation 225. Approved both by the Delaware State Education Association and Gov. John Carney, Regulation 225 would safeguard childrens protected characteristics, such as gender, age, race, sexual orientation and gender identity. Section 7.4(1) of 225s Prohibition of Discrimination Code states, All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race, which is maintained in the school. Gender isnt news. But race? Are they really going there? Yes, they apparently are. Too late for Rachel Dolezal, alas. Remember her? The Spokane, Wash., native became a ...
Teenage Dystopia: The Cycle of Oppression and Resistance
Post Date: 2018-02-12 09:43:01 by Deckard
Teenagers already live in a dystopia. Their lives are controlled by the government and their parents. If legal adults were treated like American teenagers, that government would be considered one of the most oppressive on Earth. The government requires 6-16-year-olds to attend a government institution that subjects them to unconstitutional searches. Here, in public schools, they must ask permission to use the bathroom, eat when they are told, and not speak unless called upon. If you are under 18 you cannot work without government permission, and cannot even walk on public sidewalks at certain times of day, like during school hours or after a certain time of night. And the age that ...

Study Shows Kids are Born Creative Geniuses But the Education System Destroys Imagination
Post Date: 2018-02-05 09:22:49 by Deckard
Dr. George Land and Beth Jarman were commissioned by NASA to help the space agency identify and develop creative talent. The two were tasked to research school children in an attempt to identify creative individuals from which the agency could pick to help with their many products. In a recent TED talk, Land described his teams surprising findings on the education system which are nothing short of shocking. It seems American schoolchildren lose their ability to think creatively over time. As students enter their educational journey, they retain most of their abilities to think creatively. In other words, children are born with creative genius. Employing a longitudinal study model, ...

Inside a Public School Social Justice Factory
Post Date: 2018-02-01 09:49:10 by Tooconservative
For decades, the public schools of Edina, Minnesota, were the gold standard among the states school districts. Edina is an upscale suburb of Minneapolis, but virtually overnight, its reputation has changed. Academic rigor is unraveling, high school reading and math test scores are sliding, and students increasingly fear bullying and persecution. The shift began in 2013, when Edina school leaders adopted the All for All strategic plana sweeping initiative that reordered the districts mission from academic excellence for all students to racial equity. Equity in this context does not mean equality or fairness. It ...
