A new globalism-promoting “morality” test to be used by government schools in the United Arab Emirates has education watchdogs sounding the alarm. The standardized assessment will center on so-called “social and emotional learning,” a new frontier in education that is meant to scientifically indoctrinate students with government-approved attitudes, values, and beliefs. Meet the Moral Education Standardized Assessment (MESA).
Despite the best efforts by the Left to claim that there are no differences between males and females, pesky science continues to rear its ugly head and disprove that notion. A new study out of Queensland, Australia, has found that girls perform significantly better than boys in the United States on standardized reading and writing tests. Pair this with studies showing that boys outperform girls mathematically and the Left may implode. Perhaps biology matters more than they’d like to believe.
The federal government is squandering over $1 million for a program to push “social justice” indoctrination on high-school math teachers and students, according to media reports based on government documents. The goal of the scheme is for science and math teachers to be “steeped in the context of social justice” and to “promote social justice teaching,” grant documents show.
An anti-white tweet can win a seat — at the media’s or academia’s table, seems to be the message. First there was Sarah Jeong, the New York Times editorial-board hire retained despite likening whites to “dogs” and “groveling goblins” on Twitter. Now there’s a guy an eHarmony algorithm might label her perfect match: University of Georgia (UG) teaching assistant Irami Osei-Frimpong, who compared southern whites to “sociopaths.”
U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos signed on to a radical global “declaration” that calls for, among other absurdities, brainwashing children to believe in the United Nations-backed ideology of total government known as “sustainable development.”
A Canadian anti-bullying group has created a transgender puppet character and accompanying booklets and videos to be used by teachers in the classroom. According to CTV News, the group hopes the materials will help educators assist children in navigating questions about their own gender and expression and will serve to minimize bullying of transgender children in schools.
According to a curriculum advisory group, Texas schoolchildren should not be taught that defenders of the Alamo are heroes.
We’re not yet like Britain, where a practical joker who trained his girlfriend’s dog to give the Nazi salute was charged with a “hate crime” and punished. But we’re getting closer. Just ask hapless schoolteacher Ben Frisch.
Despite carrying more than $20 trillion in debt and some $200 trillion in unfunded liabilities, the federal government has decided that spending more of your money studying critically important things like “gender microaggressions” in engineering must go on.
College campuses are doing little to quell the pervasiveness of the snowflake culture amongst young people, and are, in fact, cultivating it with the use of “safe spaces.” The latest example of this can be seen at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, where students are now being invited to report to the school’s bias response team if they feel “belittled, disrespected, or isolated based on their identity.”
