School Superintendent: Critical Race Theory ‘Isn’t Optional Anymore’

School districts across the country have pushed Marxist critical race theory, either by requiring teachers to take “anti-racism” trainings or by embracing the discredited “1619 Project” or by championing the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Learning for Justice” lessons. Yet rarely have superintendents blatantly stated that there is no room for dissent from the idea that […]

House Republicans Target Teaching of Critical Race Theory

House Republicans seek passage of legislation to push back against a rule proposed by the Biden administration to promote teaching Americans to judge each other based on skin color.

Regulatory Capture, Teacher Unions, and CDC Abuse

In his seminal article in 1971 on the economic theory of regulation, the Nobel Laureate George Stigler of the University of Chicago argued that government agencies were often “captured” by the industries they were designed to regulate.

In a statement on the Catholic League website Thursday, the organization’s President Bill Donohue warned that Critical Race Theory (CRT), which smears the United States as a deeply racist nation, is itself “an inherently racist prescription” because “it judges people on the basis of their skin color, not their individual traits.” CRT “is a textbook example of […]

They Came For Our Kids and We Did Nothing…

Americans must stop drinking the Kool-Aid. Do you think that just because your governor writes an executive order, people will comply? Do you think that just because you believe in America, Family, and God, everyone else does? Do you think that just because President Reagan took down the wall, that communism would just disappear? Think […]

Is the Tide Turning Against Critical Race Theory?

Biden’s Universal Preschool Plan

There are four primary reasons that free, universal preschool should be vigorously opposed.

Tuning Out Wokeism

The current madness is the stuff of history as we watch it predictably unfold, until—and if—a few, a “happy few,” finally say to the mob, “no mas.”  If wokeness should continue and “win,” by now we all know where it will end up. After all, this is not a prairie-fire, peasants-with-pitchforks, spontaneous bottom-up revolution. The […]

DEMOCRAT CHILD ABUSE: White House Balks At Reopening Schools

COVID presents no threat to children. There hasn’t been one case of a child giving COVID to a teacher. COVID is the club which Democrats mean to beat us down, into submission. Once the children are under their complete, insane control, the rest is child’s play. Anita Dunn, an adviser to the President, says that […]

Is Critical Race Theory Coming to a Public School Near You?

They’re at it again. You would think that public school districts would learn their lesson at some point. After all, many of them turned their backs on students and parents in the wake of COVID-19. And now, those school districts are paying the price. But apparently, they’re too committed to their agenda. Some school districts […]

From Jim Crow to Joe Crow

Readers are doubtless aware that Jim Crow was a system of state-sanctioned discrimination against black people for the basic reason of their skin color.

The Ignorant World and What to Do About It

Half of French respondents think it likely that climate change will cause “the extinction of the human race.” American teachers coddle students who have panic attacks when wildfires rage somewhere on the planet. Eco-anxiety […]

Understanding Value and Crypto Currencies

At this time, there is a rare concurrence of opinion among students of financial markets that a serious disconnect exists between prices and reality. What is meant by that is that prices suggest a cloudless sky ahead, while economic realities are waving warning flags. To understand this, let’s look at the concept of “intrinsic value”. […]

Stalin was a ‘Cancel Culture’ Pioneer: The Inside Story on How He Cancelled ‘Hamlet’

 William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet is considered by some to be the single greatest story ever written. Hamlet has it all: ghosts, sword fights, suicide, revenge, lust, murder, philosophy, faith, manipulation, and a climactic bloodbath worthy of a Tarantino film. It’s a masterpiece of both high art and sensationalism, the only play I’ve seen performed live three times. […]

Unhappy Truths About Education Today
