DUMB AND DUMBER (No. 52)
THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS ARE A CLOWN SHOW WITHOUT THE CLOWNS: FBI probing 'hate speech' attack on school that banned girls from their own locker room
THE LONG MARCH THROUGH THE INSTITUTIONS. You need to get your children out of the government schools NOW! School district: 'Non-binary' student numbers up a staggering 582%
The KUTV report said in 2019 there were 35 students who said they were non-binary, a number that surged to 239 in 2021.
That includes 18 in elementary school, 129 in middle school and 92 in high school, the report said.
THIS IS A TEMPORARY FIX TO A PROBLEM THAT CANNOT BE FIXED. If you love your children, which all of you say you do, then you really only have one option: #JustWalkAway. Parents stand up to ‘cult’ school board over trans student policy
THIS IS MY SURPRISED FACE. What the hell did you think was going to happen? Pandemic Side Effect? Kids Bombing College Admissions Tests at ‘Particularly Alarming’ Rate.
Average scores on the ACT college admissions test dropped to their lowest in 30 years, revealing more evidence of the pandemic's alarming impact on American education. . . .
These results fuel concerns that post-pandemic graduates are not prepared for college-level work. Of the ACT-tested graduates, 42 percent failed to meet any of the four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks (English, reading, math, science). Last year, 38 percent of students did not meet any of the benchmarks.
MUST READ ARTICLE: “Left Thinks It Should Be in Charge of Education, Not Parents.”
AND YOU ARE SENDING YOUR CHILDREN TO GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS, WHY? Please, remind me: “Wisconsin School District Announces It Will Keep Parents In The Dark About Kids Declaring Themselves Transgender.”
A school district in Wisconsin has issued a memo telling employees to not inform parents about their children coming out as transgender. . . .
“So, if my son starts identifying as a girl at school but hides it from me, I will never know about it,” one outraged Oshkosh parent told the Federalist, which broke the news of the change on Thursday.
“Deliberately concealing this information from parents, when those same parents would be consulted over the administration of Tylenol or permission to go on a field trip, is beyond outrageous,” Meg Kilgannon, the Family Research Council’s senior fellow for education studies, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
YOUR BAND-AID ISN’T BIG ENOUGH: Florida allows discipline for teachers who indoctrinate children with gender ideology
The Florida Board of Education unanimously approved a series of policies Wednesday, including one that disciplines teachers who teach gender identity or sexual orientation to 5-year-olds.
Under the policy, teachers could have their license suspended or revoked if they break Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Parental Rights in Education Law, which prohibits lessons on gender identity and sexual orientation from kindergarten through third grade. The board also approved rules requiring schools to alert parents if a biological man will be using women’s bathrooms and locker rooms.

WELCOME TO THE NEW AMERICA, WHERE AMERICAN “
DOMESTIC TEORRISTS” MOMS ARE FOLLOWED BY GOVERNMENT HELICOPTERS: “VA Mom: Helicopter Circled Overhead as Parents Arrived at School Board Meeting.”
Parents arriving at a Fairfax school board meeting last week were greeted by unmarked federal government vehicles and a helicopter shining a searchlight down on them, according to Stacy Langton, a mother of six who attended the meeting.
“This is something that is incredible in America and it’s, you know, ridiculously un-American,” Langton told Fox News.
“Honestly, I have paid a heavy price because of what I said at my school board meeting on Sept. 23 about the pornography and the pedophilia that I found in my son’s high school — at Fairfax High School.” . . .
“Since the DOJ protest on Sunday … my family has been receiving daily threats,” she said. “So I have threats against my children by name, I have been followed in my car with my children in my car. … They know where I live, and I don’t know who’s putting somebody up to this, but it’s obviously meant to intimidate me.”
AMERICA IS COMMITTING SUICIDE VIA THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOL SYSTEM: “While US Students Are Taught That Math Is Racist, Chinese Scientists Declare They're Years Away from Putting the World in Checkmate.”
While students in U.S. public schools are being taught that math is racist, Chinese scientists say they have built two supercomputers that dwarf the capabilities of anything currently available in the West.
The Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported the Chinese researchers claimed one of the supercomputers is one million times faster than the nearest competitor, Google’s Sycamore.
Further, they have produced a second, even faster one that “uses light photons to achieve never-before seen results.”
