Yahoo.com: Detroit Public School To SUSPEND KIDS If Parents Miss Common Core Test Meeting

“Teachers at Coleman A. Young Elementary in Detroit, Mich. sent a letter home with children last week threatening the little kids with suspension if their parents do not show up to a parent-teacher meeting. In the letter, the taxpayer-paid teachers described the meeting as compulsory for parents, reports local NBC affiliate WDIV-TV.

“Neither the meeting nor the comments regarding ‘student suspension’ were made out of ill intent, but rather to express the level of importance of students’ progress,” school officials explained, “as they prepare for the upcoming M-STEP test.”

Fox News: 8th Grader Suspended for Informing Classmates of Standardized Test ‘Opt-Out’

“A New Mexico eighth-grader said on “Fox and Friends” she was suspended from school for letting her classmates know that they could opt out of the state’s new online standardized test. 12-year-old Adelina Silva printed out the forms from her own school’s website and was rewarded with a trip to the principal’s office.

The school district released a statement, saying, “Santa Fe Public Schools supports a parent’s right to opt his or her child out of state-mandated standardized testing … no students in the district have been disciplined for supporting or promoting this district policy of a parent’s right to opt their child out of testing.”

NY Times: As Common Core Testing Is Ushered In, Parents and Students Opt Out

“A new wave of standardized exams, designed to assess whether students are learning in step with the Common Core standards, is sweeping the country, arriving this week in classrooms in several states and entering the cross hairs of various political movements. In New Jersey and elsewhere, the arrival has been marked with well-organized opposition, a spate of television attack ads and a cascade of parental anxiety.

Colorado’s Board of Education voted in January to allow school districts to skip portions of the state tests, only to be told by the state’s attorney general that it did not have that authority. At a testing information session for parents in Sparta, N.J., according to a local news report, an assistant superintendent repeatedly said: “I’m not here to fight with you. I am here to give information on the mandate.”

While some superintendents have condoned or at least tolerated the opt-out movement, others have not. William Petrick, for example, schools superintendent in Little Falls, New Jersey, said his district would handle refusals “the way we handle any other disciplinary issue.”

UK Equips 10 Year Olds With Birth Control

What starts in the UK, ends up in the US. Sadly, all this is promoted by our government schools which teach the children every form of sex there is, including bestiality. Yes, even sex with animals has been taught in American schools. The state of Maine is the culprit on that one. In the 60s, our health classes were about hygiene and reproduction, but not outside marriage and not co-ed. Today, everything is taught, including homosexual sex to children as young as five.

And what are we doing to their bodies?  Age 10 is far too young to have a birth control substance in their little undeveloped bodies.  As an aside, it’s been documented that spaying or neutering dogs before age two makes them much more likely to develop immune system problems like diabetes, Cushings Disease, and various other abnormalities. Early fixing of animals does not allow the hormones to properly feed the body until adulthood.  It’s just the opposite with young girls.  They are feeding these youngsters hormones their bodies don’t need and won’t need for decades, and the health risks down the road are looking very ominous.

I cannot imagine what these little ones think, but their brains are programmed from an early age and then is it any wonder we have so many out-of-wedlock pregnancies and abortions on young girls…some of them so young you have to wonder what kind of parents were in charge.

Again, what starts in the UK ends up in the US, and this too is population control, a la UN Agenda 21, along with the destruction of our culture and mores.

Here’s the story from One News Now

While organizations such as the United Nations promote sexual options for children in Europe and the U.K., many Third World countries oppose having those values forced on them.

In the United Kingdom, girls as young as ten years old are being injected with long-term contraceptive implants at the expense of taxpayers. Brian Clowes of Human Life International [says that] while the health impact on little girls isn’t known, manufacturers do list side effects for adults.

sex education

“You can see a list of more than 50 major side effects,” he says. “Everything from deep vein thrombosis, blood clots, death, growing hair all over the body, and so on. I just find it ridiculous. We’re against steroid use in sports but we’re willing to pump our little ten-year-old girls full of steroids like this.

The United Nations and groups associated with it are pushing the agenda even further.

erotic ed

“They’re [essentially] saying Kids have the right to sex education, and if we’re going to educate them about sex, of course then we have to give them condoms, we have to give them birth control without their parents knowing about it,'” he remarks. “And then they turn around and say But this won’t increase sexual behavior. And that is as stupid as saying we will give kids the keys to the car, but it won’t increase driving behavior.”

The program has been spread throughout much of Europe and also into Third World countries, where moral values are much more in line with the Bible than in Europe and the United States. Clowes says many of those countries are tired of having conflicting sexual and moral values pushed on them.

Planned Parenthood accepts donations earmarked for aborting black babies

Planned Parenthood logo

The baby-killing mill that calls itself Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, an eugenicist.

Eugenics is the belief and practice at improving the genetic quality of the human population through the promotion of higher reproduction of people with desired traits, and reduced reproduction of people with less-desirable traits.

In July 2009, in a Sunday New York Times interview, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said:

Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe [v. Wade] was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.

Now, an investigative report by the pro-life organization Live Action reveals the same eugenic racism also animates Planned Parenthood. 

Although the abortion mill is vocal about “Black lives matter” and condemns white police officers in Ferguson and elsewhere for allegedly targeting and killing unarmed blacks, Planned Parenthood gladly accepts donations specifically earmarked for the abortion of black babies.

An undercover investigator from Live Action called four Planned Parenthood (PP) offices — in Idaho, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Ohio —  posing as a potential donor. In each bone-chilling call, he made his anti-black sentiments very clear. In each case, the PP representative enthusiastically told him PP would earmark his donation to specifically abort black babies.

As you read the transcripts of those phonecalls, just remember the subject is the deliberate MURDER of human beings, albeit tiny human beings. Then ask yourself how Planned Parenthood is any better than Nazi German holocaust.

The following is the transcript from Live Action’s audio tape of the call between the “donor” and Autumn Kersey, director of development of Planned Parenthood of Idaho.

Sound of phone ringing . . . .

PP: Good afternoon, this is Autumn.

“Donor”: Hello, Autumn. I’m interested in making a donation today.

PP: Fantastic!

Donor: What about abortions for the underprivileged minority groups? I want to specify that abortion to help a minority group. Would that be possible?

PP: Absolutely

Donor: Like the black community for example?

PP: Certainly

Donor: OK. So, so the abortion could, could be, you know, I could give money specifically for a black baby that would, that’d be the purpose.

PP: Yeah, absolutely. Um, if you wanted to designate that you wanted your gift to be used to help an African-American woman in need, um, then we would certainly, uh, make sure that that gift was earmarked specifically for that purpose.

Donor: Great. Because I really face trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids being disadvantaged, you know, against, um, black kids. I just had a baby, I want to put it in his name, you know.

PP: Hmm.

Donor: Um, you know ….

PP: Absolutely, that’s fantastic.

Donor: So that’s, that’s definitely possible?

PP: Oh, always, always.

Donor: You know, we just think, you know, the the the less, the less black kids out, the better.

PP: [laughs] Understandable, understandable. Alright, um, excuse my hesitation. I’m, I’m, this is the first time I’ve had a donor call and ask, make this kind of request, so I’m excited, and I’m, I want to make sure I don’t leave anything out.

Live Action’s undercover investigation also called Planned Parenthood of New Mexico and spoke to Irene Gray, director of development. Here’s the transcript of their phone conversation:

PP: Hello, this is Irene.

Donor: Hi, um, I’m interested in, um, making a donation? I’d like to fund one abortion.

PP: Oh, OK!

Donor: I was wondering if that would be possible.

PP: Yes, we can definitely put that….

Donor: Um, can I make the donation specifically for a minority group?

PP: Like a specific group of color?

Donor: Yeah, yeah.

PP: Like, a group of ….

Donor: I mean, like, I want the abortion to be for an African-American baby.

PP: OK.

Donor: And, I was wondering if that could be possible?

PP: The exact amount that we charge, right now, is $450 for an abortion.

Donor: OK. $450?

PP: Mm, hm. And, uh, we can definitely designate it for an African-American.

Donor: Wonderful! Um, if I wanted to fund multiple abortions, could you also specify that this could be done for, um, a specific group?

PP: Hmm.

Donor: Great, great. Um, well, little excited, you know, because I really face trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids to be, um, uh, disadvantaged, um, you know….

PP: Yeah.

Donor: Against, against, um, against blacks with, in college and, you know, the less, um, the less blacks out there, the better, so….

PP: Yeah, yeah, it’s a strange time for sure. [Laughs]

Donor: Yeah.

PP: So, OK.

Donor: Thank you so much.

PP: No problem!

Donor: And you’ll be receiving a check in a few days!

Here’s the transcript of the phone conversation between Live Action’s undercover investigator (“donor”) and Sue Riggs, vice president of development of Planned Parenthood of Oklahoma:

PP: Hello, this is Sue. May I help you?

Donor: Hi! Uh, Sue, I’m interested in making a donation?

PP: Great!

Donor: So, could, could, would it be possible for me to donate that money specifically for these, these minority groups, so that they could have access to abortions?

PP: Yes, it would be.

Donor: Wonderful. Then could I specify that abortion be done, uh, those abortions be done for a specific minority group, or how does that work?

PP: If you wish, you can.

Donor: OK. So, so, for example, the black community in Tulsa. Would it be possible to give the money specifically for that?

PP: You sure can.

Donor: Wonderful. Great. The abortions will be done specifically for the, the black community abortions.

PP: I can, I will mark it in such a way that definitely it will.

Donor: On a black baby?

PP: Yes.

Donor: Thank you, great.

PP: OK?

Donor: Uh, so, can I give you my credit card number?

PP: Yes.

Here is the transcript of the phone conversation between “Donor” and Lisa Hutton, administrative assistant of Planned Parenthood of Ohio:

PP: Planned Parenthood administration, this is Lisa.

Donor: And who am I speaking with now?

PP: My name is Lisa Hutton.

Donor: Lisa Hutton, what’s your position?

PP: Administrative assistant.

Donor: OK. When I underwrite abortions, does that apply to minorities too?

PP: If you specifically want it to underwrite an abortion for a minority person, you can target it that way. You can, you can specify that that’s how you want it spent.

Donor: OK, yeah, ’cause there’s, so, there’s definitely way too many black people in Ohio, so I’m just trying to do my part.

PP: [Laughs] OK. Whatever.

Donor: Well, blacks especially need abortions too. So that’s what I’m trying to do.

PP: Well, for whatever reason, we’ll accept the money.

You can listen to the audio tape of the above 4 phone conversations by going to Live Action’s Facebook page.

871 black babies are aborted every day in the United States (Guttmacher Institute), but not a word from the Reverends from Hell Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, or from the black president and black first lady in the White House. Don’t black lives matter?

All-women’s school lets students choose between 10 different pronouns

So many choices...

So many choices…

 

Campus Reform: Scripps College students will now be able to choose between 10 different pronouns in their class portal so professors may address them based on their preferred pronoun.

The school notified the students of the change via a campus-wide email in the middle of February explaining the decision and the new options for gender identity that will be provided for both student and professors.

“This feature has been implemented in response to student recommendations and in consultation with many constituents in the Scripps community,” the email obtained by Campus Reform said. “The pronoun portal feature gives students an opportunity to inform faculty of a pronoun that most closely matches their gendered and lived experiences at Scripps. It has been made available for students and faculty in an effort to build an inclusive environment.”

The new gender identification page in the student portal will allow students to choose from the following pronouns: e/ey, em, eir/eirs, eirself/emse; he, him, his, himself; hu, hum, hus, humself; “just my name please;” none; per, per, per/pers, perself; she, her, hers, herself; they, them, their/theirs, themse; ze, hir, hir/hirs, hirself; and ze, zir, zir/zirs, zirself.

The email also included a link to a pronoun guide by Pomona College also in Claremont, Calif., to explain some of the lesser-known pronouns.

Rachel Neuberg, a sophomore at Scripps, told The Student Life, a weekly student publication encompassing the Claremont Colleges, that she believed the change is a necessary step for the college to make in creating a safer environment for students.

“One’s gender identity should not be something that causes them anxiety in their everyday lives,” Neuberg said. “I hope that Scripps will continue to create a safe and comfortable place for its students, and that other colleges will take note so we can all work together to stop institutionalized violence.”

This change in policy comes after Scripps College, an all-women’s school, started admitting men who identify as women to the college in December. Male pronouns are included in the list of preferred pronouns students may choose from.

Scripps is a liberal arts institution located in Claremont, Calif.

Sex offender who illegally crossed border from Canada arrested for burglary, rape

Repeat, violent sex offender Stanley

Repeat, violent sex offender Stanley

MyNorthwest.com: A Level III registered sex offender who illegally crossed the border from Canada two years ago has been arrested for investigation of burglary and rape.

Michael Stanley, 49, went in through the window and confronted a 69-year-old woman in her Skyway home located in the 8400 block of S 115 St Friday morning, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. Police said no weapons were used, but the woman sustained minor injuries.

The sheriff’s office said Stanley, who is homeless, has been in compliance with Level III requirements since registering as a sex offender in Nov. 2013. He’s required to check in weekly and must provide an accurate account of where he stays every night.

He’ll make a first court appearance at the Regional Justice Center on Monday.

Stanley, a U.S. citizen, cut off his monitoring ankle bracelet in Canada and crossed unchallenged in to the U.S. in 2013. A warrant was issued, but Canada chose not to extradite Stanley.

In Oct. 2013, the CBC reported Stanley has a history of taking children from playgrounds, and was sentenced for luring two mentally-impaired boys to an apartment in 2006, and in the 1980s he spent time in prison for sexually assaulting an 82-year-old wheelchair bound woman.

From October 2013:

“A violent, high-risk sex offender that escaped from Canada has registered as a sex offender in King County. But other than keeping an eye on him, police say there’s not much else they can do.

“It’s unfortunate that he ended up here, but we will do everything we can in our power to ensure that he stays in line with his registration,” Renee Witt, with the Seattle Police Department, tells KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson.

Stanley fled Canada after cutting off his electronic-monitoring bracelet. U.S. officials allowed him to cross the border after determining he was an American citizen and not the subject of an extraditable arrest warrant. He then made his way to Seattle.

“We’re doing everything to ensure that he is closely monitored and to make sure that he doesn’t reoffend here in our city,” says Witt. “Of course, if anyone should see him out doing anything that may fall outside of those guidelines, they’re asked to call 911.”

Yeah, how did that “closely monitoring” situation work for the 69-year-old victim?

Parents upset over ‘personal’ survey offered at school

homeschool

Fox59.com: Some parents in Noblesville (Ind.) aren’t happy about a survey their middle schoolers filled out at school. They want to know who’s behind the optional survey that they said got way too personal.

“They crossed the line when they entered the home,” said Michelle Bracewell. Bracewell said some of the questions her seventh grade daughter answered were invasive. Her daughter took the survey on her iPad at Noblesville West Middle School.

The survey asked about drug and alcohol use, which Bracewell said was understandable, but she became bothered when she found out what other statements the survey solicited.

It asked for student responses to statements like, “People in my family have serious arguments,” and, “People in my family often insult or yell at each other.” “Those are personal questions, and if I want people to know what’s going on inside my home, I’ll let them know,” said Bracewell.

Bracewell said her child’s instructor told the class the survey was optional.

Other parents were concerned, too. Comments popped up on Facebook, with some parents saying they are very upset over an “issue of rights,” and others calling the survey “data mining, and a 100% violation of privacy and trust.”

“We ask these questions for purposes of public health,” said Ruth Gassman, Executive Director of the Indiana Prevention Resource Center. Gassman says 150 school corporations across the state voluntarily agree to the Indiana Youth Survey, which has been offered across the state for more than twenty years. The survey’s offered in sixth through twelfth grades, and Gassman said each school decides which grades in which they’ll distribute the survey.

The data is used to tailor drug and alcohol awareness programs, some of the questions are used to probe risk factors in the home. “These items are referred to ask risk and protective factors for alcohol, tobacco, and drug use,” said Gassman.

But this year, in a pilot program, the IPRC asked students for their birthdate and initials, still optional, but parents claim that’s an invasion of privacy, too. “It’d be very easy to go back and look at a birthdate and initials and see who the child was,” said Bracewell.

Gassman said that initial and birthdate information is not stored, instead it’s used to assign a generic numerical identification number to track students’ responses over a course of years.

A spokesperson for Noblesville Schools said the survey was made optionally available to middle school students.

FOX59 wanted to know if any teachers forced their classes to complete the survey. A spokesperson did not return our email or answer any of our follow up questions.

Click here to be directed to a sample copy of the sixth grade, and seventh through twelfth grade surveys. Rules from the IPRC state that students must be informed their participation is voluntary.

Here’s some questions from the surveys:

  • During any time in your life, has either of your parents or guardians been sent to Iraq, Afghanistan, or other combat zone because they are in the military? (Military includes Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard, and Reserves.)
  • During the past 12 months, how often have you bet/gambled for money or valuables in the following ways? Gambling can be done in a variety of settings, including with family and friends. (Some answers include bingo, March Madness and lottery.)
  • Would your parents know if you did not come home on time?
  • How often do your parents tell you they’re proud of you for something you’ve done?
  • In the past year (12 months), how many of your best friends have regularly attended religious services?
  • If a kid carried a handgun in your neighborhood, would he or she be caught by the police?

I’m surprised they didn’t ask about any firearms in the home.

University of Chicago offers $1 million for best idea to stem youth violence

black lives2

Chicago Tribune: More than suicide or heart disease, HIV or unintentional injuries, homicide has claimed the lives of more young African-American males than anything else.

In fact, it has outpaced the nine other leading causes of death combined, according to recent federal data. And Chicago has a higher percentage of young homicide victims than the national average.

In an effort to change that narrative, the University of Chicago Crime Lab has teamed up with the MacArthur Foundation and Get In Chicago to offer up to $1 million for the best idea or ideas to combat youth violence.

“This is not an intractable problem, but we have not made enough progress,” said Roseanna Ander, executive director of the University of Chicago Crime Lab and Urban Education Lab.

Organizers of the design competition said they are looking for imaginative solutions to the complex issue. The goal is to improve life outcomes of the young people who walk the city’s streets, attend its schools and play in its parks.

chicago

The deadline to submit plans is fast approaching. All letters of interest have to be in by Monday (3/2), after which a limited number of applicants will be asked to file full proposals. The awards will be announced in late May.

Plans should focus on Chicago youths ages 13 to 18. The hope, Ander said, is that researchers can use the data collected in tandem with other studies to tease out the common elements of effective programs, whether they be increasing school engagement or understanding the role of a positive adult in a young person’s life.

“We really need to have a variety of approaches that meet different sets of needs,” Ander said. “No one of them is going to be the slam-dunk, but hopefully, collectively, there will be a portfolio of strategies that can help make the quantum leap we need to make, not just in Chicago but in lots of other cities that are struggling mightily with this problem.”

The Crime Lab launched a similar challenge in 2009, which funded the community group Youth Guidance’s Becoming a Man project. President Barack Obama last year rolled out the My Brother’s Keeper initiative, which was modeled after the Chicago school-based counseling and mentoring program.

Although this year’s winning proposal could be up and running in Chicago as early as this summer, the objective is to reach beyond the city’s borders, said Maurice Classen, program officer at the MacArthur Foundation.

“If you look at (Becoming a Man), it ended up several years after the design competition in the White House,” he said. “That would be the ideal in terms of impacting anti-violence programming across the country. That would be the dream.”

So many ideas to improve the situation in Chicago. A good start is to begin with the politicians who make the laws and a society that really does believe that #blacklivesmatter.
