Another Sign America Is Done: Teacher Fired For Refusing To Give 50% Grade To Students Who Didn’t Turn In Their Homework

Should students that refuse to turn in their homework receive a grade of 50 percent anyway?  Of course not.  That would be like workers that didn’t show up for work asking for 50 percent of their paychecks.  Our system of education has become a complete and utter joke, and the rest of the world is laughing at us.  Fortunately, there are still a few brave souls that are standing up for what is right.  52-year-old history teacher Diane Tirado was hired by the West Gate K-8 School in Port St Lucie, Florida for this school year, but she was fired when she refused to give students that didn’t turn in anything a 50 percent grade on their assignments.  When Tirado was hired, she was never told that the school has a “no zero” policy.  And when she found out, she refused to go along with it.

California Is Being Sued Because So Few Of Their Public School Children Can Read

At one elementary school in California, 96 percent of the students are not proficient in either English or math.  How is that even possible?  Unfortunately, the more the federal government gets involved in education, the worse it seems to get.  At one time the United States had the greatest system of public education on the entire planet, but these days we only seem to make headlines when news comes out about how poorly we are doing.  This has been a hot button issue for me for a long time, but even I was surprised when I learned that the state of California is actually being sued because so few of their public school children can read… (Read More...)

Pope Francis Calls For A New Global Political Authority To Save Humanity

Global Puzzle - Public DomainPope Francis says that global warming is a fact and that a new global political authority is necessary in order to save humanity from utter disaster.  The new encyclical that was scheduled to be released on Thursday has been leaked, and it is being reported that this new global political authority that Pope Francis envisions would be in charge of “the reduction of pollution and the development of poor countries and regions”.  The funny thing is that this sounds very much in line with the new sustainable development agenda that is going to be launched at the United Nations in September.  This radical new agenda is already being called “Agenda 21 on steroids” because it goes so much farther than Agenda 21 ever did.  The new UN agenda does not just address the environment – it also addresses issues such as poverty, agriculture, education and gender equality.  It is essentially a blueprint for governing the entire planet, and that sounds very much like what Pope Francis also wants.  In fact, Pope Francis is going to give the speech that kicks off the UN conference in September where this new sustainable agenda will be launched.  For some reason, this Pope has decided to make the fight against climate change the central pillar of his papacy, and he is working very hard to unite as much of humanity as possible to get behind that effort.

America’s Colleges Have Become Political Correctness Indoctrination Centers

Colleges - Political Correctness Indoctrination CentersMost parents assume that when they send their kids to college that they will receive training which will prepare them for a lifetime of employment.  Sadly, the truth is that very little time is actually spent imparting practical skills to students at most of America’s colleges.  Instead, an extraordinary amount of classroom time is spent telling students what they should think and what they should believe.  At this point, most institutions of “higher learning” in this country have been transformed into political correctness indoctrination centers.  There is a reason why college towns have a reputation for being extremely liberal.  The truth is that they are bastions for “progressive” thought.  Each and every day, millions of young adults all across America are literally being systematically brainwashed.  In case you are wondering, I know what I am talking about.  I spent eight years getting three degrees at public universities.  And it doesn’t even really matter what area of the country you attend school.  The “education” that students are receiving at schools in very liberal states is virtually the same as the “education” that students are receiving at schools in very conservative states.  Our young adults represent the future of this nation, and they are receiving a level of indoctrination that is so comprehensive that it would make Joseph Goebbels proud.

We Now Have Scientific Proof That People Are Getting Stupider

Brain - Public DomainAre people dumber than they used to be?  Were previous generations mentally sharper than us?  You may have suspected that people are getting stupider for quite some time, but now we actually have scientific evidence that this is the case.  As you will read about below, average IQs are dropping all over the globe, SAT scores in the U.S. have been declining for decades, and scientists have even discovered that our brains have been getting smaller over time.  So if it seems on some days like you woke up in the middle of the movie “Idiocracy”, you might not be too far off.  Much of the stuff that they put in our junk food is not good for brain development, our education system is a total joke and most Americans are absolutely addicted to mindless entertainment.  Fortunately we have a lot of technology that does much of our thinking for us these days, because if we had to depend on our own mental capabilities most of us would be in a tremendous amount of trouble.

Texas Public School Curriculum Teaches Students To Design A Socialist Flag And That Christianity Is A Cult

Texas Public School Curriculum Teaches Students To Design A Socialist Flag And That Christianity Is A Cult - Photo by Moto 53Socialism is being promoted and Christianity is being demonized in the public school systems of some of the most conservative states in America.  For example, students in Texas public schools have been taught to design a socialist flag for a new nation, that those that participated in the Boston Tea Party were “terrorists”, and that Christianity is a cult.  If this kind of thing is happening in Texas, can you imagine what is happening in the rest of the nation?  Sadly, education is a big part of the “progressive” agenda.  Progressives are convinced that if they can “shape the minds” of the next generation through education that it will only be a matter of time before they achieve all of the major changes that they are seeking to implement in our society.  And you know what?  It’s working.  If you look at any public opinion poll that is broken down by age, you will find that the youngest age brackets are the most likely to agree with progressive viewpoints.  Millions of parents are sending their kids to public schools without having any idea that they are being taught that patriotism is divisive, that capitalism is evil and that Christianity is a fictitious cult.  Instead of learning traditional American values, those kids are being taught that they should identify themselves as “global citizens”, that socialism is about “sharing” and that all of the religions of the world need to come together as one.  If you are a parent, just pick up the textbooks that your kids have been assigned and actually read them.  Once you know what to look for, you will see it everywhere.

19 Things That All High School Students Should Be Told Before They Go To College

Don’t you wish that someone had told you the truth before you went to college?  Don’t you wish that someone had told you that college has become a giant money making scam that is designed to drain as much money out of students and parents as possible?  Yes, college can be a profitable endeavor if you pick your field of study wisely, if you can get someone else to pay for at least some of it and if you can actually get a good job in that field when you graduate.  But most high school students are never told to weigh the pros and the cons before they run off to college.  The typical high school student is simply told to get into the “best school” that he or she can and to take out whatever loans are “necessary” to pay for that education.  Our high school students are assured that those student loans will be paid back easily once they get “good jobs” following graduation.  But the truth is that there are some other things that high school students should be told before they go off to college as well.  They should be told that student loan debt can cripple them financially for decades.  They should be told that the quality of education at most U.S. colleges and universities is a total joke.  They should be told that most college graduates do not get a “good job” once they graduate these days.  They should be told that after they receive their diplomas they are likely to end up flat broke, waiting tables and living with their parents.
