Those Danged “Domestic Terrorists.”

Those danged “domestic terrorists” (also known as parents) are at it again.

In Orange County, North Carolina, the School Board removed from their meeting anyone who spoke in non-agenda items.

RALEIGH — At the direction of the Orange County Public Schools board of education chair, parents and members of the public were ejected from the Oct. 11 board meeting by Orange County sheriffs’ deputies.

The reason? Apparently speaking about concerns and topics that were not on the meeting agenda.

Attendees were also subjected to metal detectors and told they could not congregate on the premises of A.L. Stanback Middle School where the meeting was being held.

“There Are Children In The Room.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: VIDEO IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

Stacy Langton is a mother whose children attend schools in Fairfax County, Virginia.

The school board there has been getting raked over the coals and excoriated for promoting elements of critical race theory, specifically the elements racial differences and “white privilege.”

Langton showed up to speak on a different topic – two books that were in the school systems libraries.

Holding up copies of “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer: A Memoir” by Maia Kobabe — both of which Langton said she checked out from the school’s library — she told the board that “both of these books include pedophilia, sex between men and boys. … One book describes a fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male. The other book has detailed illustrations of a man having sex with a boy.”

“Ghost Students” In Baltimore City Schools. It’s Not Halloween.

Baltimore City Public Schools are in the news again, and not for the right reasons.

Following on the heels of two explosive reports where students were passed on to graduate with failing grades, and reports of inflating grades comes a new allegation: “ghost students.”

BALTIMORE (WBFF) — A former Baltimore City Schools principal says she believes there’s an organized effort in City Schools to push kids through the system at any cost, even if it means enrolling them in classes that don’t exist. The allegations come as the school district is under fire over so-called ghost students, and now, ghost classes.

Angel Lewis tells Fox45 News she was recruited by Baltimore City Schools in 2016 and brought in to help a troubled school east Baltimore. She says North Avenue knew about ghost student and ghost classes, years ago, because she told them.

Lewis has watched over the past few months as Project Baltimore exposed the massive scandal at Augusta Fells Savage in west Baltimore. For her, it seemed all too familiar.

“I believe that it is happening at many schools,” Lewis told Project Baltimore.

The Principal Who Should Be Fired – Along With Everyone Who Went Along With Her.

There are very few things that we come across that are mind blowing and jaw dropping. After years of this blog being a part of the blog-o-sphere, we are more cynical than we used to be.

This story has us shaking our head for so many reasons.

Let us introduce you to Sharyn Briscoe.

Mary Lin Elementary School principal Sharyn Briscoe

Briscoe is the principal of the Mary Lin Elementary School in Atlanta, Georgia.

Kila Posey, the Vice President of the Parent Teachers Association at the school approached Briscoe concerning her daughter who she felt would do better in a class with another teacher.

Briscoe denied the request and the reason is stunning:

Posey said she found out the school was putting Black students in two separate classes with two separate teachers.

The white kids were placed in six classes with six different teachers.

The parent said she found this out when she let Briscoe know she wanted her child placed in the

Loudoun County VA Teacher Resigns.

Loudoun County Public School System is the third largest in the State of Virginia with over 80,000 students.

As of Wednesday night, the County is down one teacher.

Laura Morris had been an elementary school teacher in the district for 5 years and according to her, a teacher for ten.

At a meeting were topic of discussion were to include transgender policies, mask policies and Critical Race Theory in the school system. (We keep hearing people saying that CRT is not being taught in elementary and secondary schools. They are not paying attention as it clearly is.)

Large crowds were gathered outside of the meeting (which was later suspended because of the number of public comments) but it was Morris’ comments and resignation that has caught the eye of the nation.

Morris alleges that in one “equity training session,” the person conducting the training told the group “that White, Christian, able-bodied females currently have the power in our schools and ‘this has to change.’”

Then, we’ll talk a little about it.

First, what “Critical Race Theory,” (CRT) is:

Here a 15 year old explains to a deaf school board how CRT is presented, and how instead of uniting people of all races, it divides them:

Let’s All Cheer For Free Speech!

In 2017, high school freshman Brandy Levy was not selected to the varsity cheerleader squad.

Away from the school and the school campus, Levy voiced her frustration in a Snapchat post showing Levy and a friend extending their middle fingers. The image was accompanied by the words:

“f**k school f**k softball f**k cheer f**k everything”

(Except Levy did not use asterisks.)

Virginia School Board Enjoined From Suspending Teacher.

Meet Tanner Cross.

Cross is a physical education teacher in Loudoun County, Virginia. He has been teaching for over eight years, gets good performance reviews, and has never been in any trouble within the school system. A recent evaluation concluded that Cross was “extremely professional,” an “excellent role model” and a “mentor to students.” Cross’s contract with the school district was renewed for the 2022 – 2023 school year.

All this was occurring before the night of May 25, 2021 when Cross stood up at a public School Board meeting, and during the time for public comments, addressed a policy the Loudoun County School Board was looking to implement concerning transgendered students.

Specifically, proposed policy 8040 states:
