The following was first published by Kettle Moraine Publications on the Federal Observer on May 27, 2013. It has proven to be timeless – and pointed. The author’s feelings have been felt by many in her profession. If your child’s teacher feels this way – what is it telling you? ~ (Ed.)
Emotional video resignation by veteran teacher slams ‘depressing gradual downfall of public education’
An impassioned video resignation by a teacher with 15 years of experience blasts the state of public education in the US, which she claims is now more focused on tests than children’s welfare.
Ellie Rubenstein, who taught fourth grade in Highland Park, Illinois, posted the emotional speech last week after hearing that she was going to be transferred to another school against her will. Continue reading →

The teachings of the Left include discrediting the Bible and replacing religion with social justice, dishonoring America and family, controlling the schools and curricula, and normalizing promiscuity. The Left has set about “deconstructing” (breaking down) the child’s psychology, removing every facet of life that provides the sense of security needed to create a mature, stable, responsible, independent, confident, and productive adult who will contribute to a free society. And it is through today’s schools that they are deconstructing our children in order to destroy the free society. Continue reading →
Parents in a northern California community aren’t happy with a kindergarten teacher for discussing transgender issues with students – something one family advocate saw coming years ago.
According to CBS 13 in Sacramento, the incident happened at Rocklin Charter School Academy just before students left for the summer break. Concerned parents went to the school board meeting Tuesday night to speak out on the issue. They say a kindergarten teacher, who stands by her actions, read “gender identity” books to her class before a student changed clothing as part of an effort to reveal that student’s “true gender.” Continue reading →
Brainwashing of Academia, Hollywood, Communist foreign infiltrators, and the mainstream media
As a parent who struggles to pay the tuition for their child at the average university in America, or goes into debt borrowing the money, consider what your child must face in order to finish a four years of college education, which may or may not help them get a job.
The American campus is no longer the place of learning, to discuss and exchange ideas, it has become a place of indoctrination, of fear, a place where your children are further indoctrinated, and are not prepared to deal with or function in real life and in the job world. Continue reading →
Ten years ago, psychologist Sue Palmer predicted the toxic effects of social media. Now she sees a worrying new danger…
When the little girl pointed at the sweets at the checkout, her mother said: ‘No, they’re bad for your teeth.’ So her daughter, who was no more than two, did what small children often do at such times. She threw a tantrum.
What happened next horrified me. The embarrassed mother found her iPad in her bag and thrust it into her daughter’s hands. Peace was restored immediately.
This incident, which happened three years ago, was the first time I saw a tablet computer used as a pacifier. It certainly wasn’t the last. Since then, I’ve seen many tiny children barely able to toddle yet expertly swiping an iPad – not to mention countless teenagers, smartphone in hand, lost to the real world as they tap out texts.

“The job of tyrants and busybodies is never done. When they accomplish one goal, they move their agenda to something else. If we Americans give them an inch, they’ll take a yard. So I say, don’t give them an inch in the first place.” ~ Walter Williams

George Orwell said, “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” In the former USSR, censorship, rewriting of history and eliminating undesirable people became part of Soviets’ effort to ensure that the correct ideological and political spin was put on their history. Deviation from official propaganda was punished by confinement in labor camps and execution.
Today there are efforts to rewrite history in the U.S., albeit the punishment is not so draconian as that in the Soviet Union. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu had a Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee monument removed last month. Former Memphis Mayor A C Wharton wanted the statue of Confederate Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, as well as the graves of Forrest and his wife, removed from the city park. In Richmond, Virginia, there have been calls for the removal of the Monument Avenue statues of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Gens. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and J.E.B. Stuart. It’s not only Confederate statues that have come under attack. Just by having the name of a Confederate, such as J.E.B. Stuart High School in Falls Church, Virginia, brings up calls for a name change. These history rewriters have enjoyed nearly total success in getting the Confederate flag removed from state capitol grounds and other public places. Continue reading →
A scientist says a new children’s book about a prince marrying a farm boy illustrates how depraved modern culture has become.
The picture book for youngsters is entitled Promised Land. In the story, a young prince and a farm boy have a few adventures; at the end of the book, a picture shows the two kissing on the lips. The book states: “They got married and started their own family.”
“That is, of course, impossible,” Dr. William Matt Briggs, a professor at Cornell University, writes in a column for Stream.org. “Two men cannot marry – and two men certainly cannot start a family. That is biologically impossible. These are not only theological truths – they are scientific realities as well.”
“It goes against the culture because quite obviously two men or two women cannot procreate. It’s just something that cannot be done,” he adds in an interview… Continue reading →
Many universities encourage students to purchase laptops that they can bring to class. Charities like One Laptop per Child provide low-cost laptops to disadvantaged students.
There is no doubt that having a desktop computer or laptop in school is useful for writing papers, gathering information and learning how to program and use software.
But, as would seem obvious, surfing the internet during class – and connecting with friends, shopping or streaming movies – could also prove to be a source of distraction and hinder learning. Continue reading →
No Reading, Writing and Arithmetic for today’s Teachers or students… instead of the Three ‘R’s it is now the S – E – X. No written report cards either, it is mostly ORAL.
Let’s start with the first major expose’ of older female teacher with minor male student, Mary Kay Letourneau and Vili Fualaau. She was married and had 4 children with her husband. She RUINED their lives in order to ‘teach’ a young (12 year old) male student how to have sex. OUR TAX DOLLARS PAID FOR THAT EDUCATION. This is why there MUST be a legal, codified definition of what CONSTITUTES BASIC EDUCATION in Washington State. I would like to know if our TAX DOLLARS also paid, via welfare, for the delivery, and care of the daughter that illicit sexual lesson brought forth. Continue reading →
