The Problem with Gubbermint Skools – A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words (Updated)

This is a picture of a graded test that came from a WGST Radio caller that has a child attending a government school in Rockmart, Georgia.

Notice something a little odd?

For those of you that may not have had your morning coffee or tea yet, in the right margin you will see the phrase ‘new all.’

-Notice it appears not just once, but twice.

And many seem so puzzled as to why American kids are falling so far behind the rest of the world educationally, despite the fact that this country spends far more per student than any other nation on Earth.

Update: I did not listen to the show on Friday, which was when the call was on the air live, but I heard them discussing it today, and they both sounded pretty adamant that this was a misspelling of the word “knew.”

And judging from the misspelled signs at teacher protest rallies in Chicago last week, I would say this is not just a problem here in Georgia.

Sexpert says schools should teach teens about "pleasurable moaning"

A so-called sex expert (“sex educator, writer, speaker, consultant”) named Cory Silverberg extolls masturbation as “the cornerstone of sexual health” and says sex ed in schools should include instructions on “pleasurable moaning.”

“Sex educator” Cory Silverberg: Would you want this man near your children?

Peter Baklinski reports for LifeSiteNews, May 1, 2012, that Silverberg told the Star last week that sex education in schools needs to become more graphic and explicit if it is to be relevant to today’s generation of kids.
Cory Silverberg, a sex educator from Toronto, told the Star’s Ann Douglas, “Teenagers need to know what pleasure looks and sounds like — pleasurable moaning, asking for more — in order to be sure that a partner is providing enthusiastic consent to sex.”
Silverberg suggested that conversations about pornography should become part of an updated sex ed curriculum: not to warn children of the dangers, backed by research, that are inherent in the use of pornography, but to make children aware of the “stereotypical views about how men and women should interact sexually.”
Silverberg also want parents to talk to their teens about “pleasurable moaning,”  so that the teens will be able to interpret the “pleasurable moaning” of an intoxicated or passed out sexual partner as a sign of sexual consent. “Can you really speak up for yourself if you’ve had so much to drink you’re completely passive or passed out, for instance? People need to be sure that their partners are actually saying yes.”
Silverberg is the same “sexpert” who is is about to publish a children’s book, aimed at children from pre-school through 8-years-old, which portrays the dozens of alternative methods that can be used to create a new human life (about 30 according to the author). The book will also be accompanied by a teacher’s resource to assist its implementation in a school setting.
In discussing the book, Silverberg disparages traditional stories that tell what he calls a “nice story (mommy + daddy + intercourse = you!)” adding, “more and more of us are acknowledging the help we get to bring children into our lives. That help might be a doctor, fertility clinic, adoption or foster agency; it might be a turkey baster and a friend; it might be a sperm donor or a surrogate.”

XXX-rated Planned Parenthood Sex Curriculum in Schools


This is beyond disgusting.  It’s sick, twisted and evil.  It’s curriculum that has been “taught” to our children, approved by school boards and funded by tax dollars for many years.

Massachusetts Schools to Have Muslim Holiday

According to Wikipedia, the majority of Americans (76%) identify themselves as Christians (51% Protestants; 25% Catholic). Non-Christian religions (including Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism), collectively make up about 4% to 5% of the adult population. [source]
Once very small, the Muslim population of the US increased greatly in the 20th century, with much of the growth driven by rising immigration and conversion. South Asians Muslims from India and Pakistan and Arabs make up the biggest group of Muslims in America at 60–65% of the population. Native-born American Muslims are mainly African American converts who make up a quarter of the total Muslim population. Despite all this, Muslims comprise less than 2% of the U.S. population. [source]
So it is curious indeed that the public school system of Cambridge, Massachusetts, decided to close down its schools for one day a year as a Muslim holiday. What happened to the separation of church and state that the Left always invoke when it comes to anything Christian? What next? A public school holiday for Satanists?
Cambridge is one of the most liberal cities in America. Its residents jokingly refer to it as “The People’s Republic of Cambridge.” Indeed, in 2008, 58.43% of Cantabrigians (what residents of Cambridge call themselves) registered Democrat, 35.43% were Unaffiliated or Independents, while only 5.07% were Republicans.

“The flag of Islam will one day fly over the White House.” –Anjem Choudary

Brock Parker reports for the Boston Globe on October 10, 2010:

As a Muslim and a high school senior at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, 17-year-old Dunia Kassay faces a tough choice every year on Islamic holy days: go to school or stay home to be with family and friends. If she stays home, Kassay says, she will be forced to play catch-up and make up her school assignments. But if she goes to school, she will be neglecting what she feels is her religious obligation on holidays such as Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. “It’s really conflicting,’’ Kassay said. “Instead of fasting for a month and enjoying this really big day, eating and going to family’s houses, it’s kind of like, ‘Oh, hey, guys, I’ve got to go do my homework.’’’

But beginning next year, Cambridge public schools will attempt to make it easier for Muslim students to honor their highest holy days. In a move that school officials believe is the first of its kind in the state, Cambridge will close schools for one Muslim holiday each year beginning in the 2011-2012 school year.
The school will either close for Eid al-Fitr or Eid al-Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, depending on which holiday falls within the school year. If both fall within the school calendar, the district will close for only one of the days.
The school district’s decision, announced last month, was made as the national discussion about Islam continues, fueled by a Mosque proposal two blocks from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Florida preacher Terry Jones’s threat to burn a Koran. The discussion has also touched local schools, as Wellesley school officials drew criticism recently for a video that showed sixth-grade students kneeling during a prayer service at a Boston mosque during a field trip in May.
But Cambridge School Committee member Marc McGovern, who pushed for the Muslim holiday in city schools, said he thinks people need to take a step back from what he called hysteria and the stereotypes of all Muslims as terrorists. “At a time when I think the Muslim population is being characterized with a broad brush in a negative way, I think it’s important for us to say we’re not going to do that here,’’ McGovern said.
Cambridge schools already close for some Christian and Jewish holidays, and McGovern said he believes Muslims should be treated equally. “The issue that sort of came up was should we celebrate any religious holidays, but there was not the will to take away Good Friday or one of the Jewish holidays,’’ he said. “So I said, if that is the case, I think we have an obligation to celebrate one of the Muslim holidays, as well.’’
State and federal laws require schools to make reasonable accommodation of the religious needs of students and in observance of holy days, but the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education leaves the decision about how to do that up to individual school districts because they “know best about the needs and unique demographic makeup of their student population and community,’’ said JC Considine, a spokesman for the department.
If a school district has a large number of students who observe Good Friday and would not attend school that day, Considine said the districts are allowed to close because of the expected low attendance. But the state does require districts to schedule at least 180 days of school.
Cambridge School Superintendent Jeffrey Young said the district does not collect information about the religion of its students. But Young said that there is a significant Muslim population in the city, and that, at least anecdotally, the Muslim population in the schools appears to be growing.
A large Muslim population is one of the reasons why the school district in Dearborn, Mich., began closing schools for high Islamic holy days 10 years ago, said David Mustonen, communications coordinator for the school system. Mustonen said that at first there were some people in the community who didn’t like the schools being closed on Eid holidays. “However, I don’t think this is the case anymore as people have come to realize that it is no different then taking time off at Christmas or Easter,’’ Mustonen said in an e-mail.
In September, public schools in Burlington, Vt., also closed on Eid al-Fitr for the first time, said Dan Balon, director of the school district’s diversity and equity office. Balon said there is an increasing Muslim population in the schools, and the district decided to close on the holiday rather than risk low attendance rates and force students to decide between school and staying home to celebrate the holiday.
Glenn Koocher, executive director of the Massachusetts Association of School Committees, said that to his knowledge Cambridge would be the first school district in Massachusetts to close schools for a Muslim holiday. “Somebody has to be first,’’ said Koocher. “I suspect there may be heightened interest in this. We’ll see how this plays out.’’ [….]

US Public School Students Learn to Pray to Allah

Public prayers and mentions of God (Christ) and of Intelligent Design are verboten in America’s public schools, but Allah is okay! More than okay, a group of public school students actually took a field trip to a mosque where they learnt to pray to Allah — that all-powerful “god” who is beyond reason and human comprehension and who enjoins his believers to undertake violent jihad in his name.

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7-I9Qp3d4Y&feature=player_embedded]
In late May of 2010, Wellesley, Massachusetts public middle school students took a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – a controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society of Boston. There, the students were separated by gender and the boys were asked to join the Muslim adults in their prayer. Several of the public school boys took part.
