Day two of the Chicago teacher strike commenced Tuesday, leaving nearly 350,000 students between kindergarten and high school age without schooling for another day, while forcing parents to decide whether to stay home from work, pay for childcare, or leave their children at home to fend for themselves. 

Thousands of public school teachers took to the streets Monday to protest a failed contract that has left union leaders and school district officials in gridlock.

The Communist Chinese policy of birth control by coerced abortions to reduce the birth rate of couples to one child is a very real and grim fact. It has now come to light that the U.S. company Apple is helping with that policy by allowing forced pregnancy screenings of its female employees in Apple's Chinese facilities.

 

 

After a debate over new teacher contracts collapsed on September 9, 20,000 public-school teachers in Chicago’s education system went on strike, leaving hundreds of thousands of students without schooling or supervision. Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, said later that day they had made progress on resolving many provisions in the contract, but “we have failed to reach an agreement that will prevent a labor strike.”

The California Senate passed a bill September 6 that would make it legal for non-physician medical professionals such as midwives to perform abortions under a statewide training program. The measure now awaits Democratic Governor Jerry Brown's signature.

For the past 50 years the Friday night football games at Haralson County High School in Tallapoosa, Georgia, have started the same way, with prayer, most recently offered by the team's chaplain, a local minister. But on September 7 the tradition of reverence and faith came to a screeching halt as the school district's superintendent caved in to the intimidation of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which demanded that the school stop allowing prayer over the football stadium's PA system.

But while the FFRF has succeeded in silencing the sanctioned prayers of schools across America in its campaign to sanitize the nation of faith, it has not yet found a method of stifling citizens themselves. Thus, at the beginning of the Haralson County Rebels' first home game, students, parents, and others in attendance used the “moment of silence” that replaced the forbidden prayer to recite the Lord's Prayer in unison.
