Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.
The focus this time: Out: The three “R”s. In: Chicken and cow getting jiggy with it.
First, a little mood music:
Education is no longer about teaching facts and valuable knowledge… but rather it is all about “protecting” children from it!
“John Dewey sneeringly dismissed academic progress as ‘mere learning.’
“Two famous professors, in their 1929 textbook, unapologetically stated that most school material is a waste of time: ‘Subjects such as arithmetic, language, and history include content that is intrinsically of little value.’ That clearly reveals an ideology.
“But communities sometimes fight back, so the Education Establishment had to be ever creative, ever conniving.
“During the last 40 or 50 years, the attack on knowledge became more ingenious. In one example, teachers were told not to teach; students must create their own new knowledge.

“According to the Clemson’s website, ‘Ally Training aims to increase awareness and understanding of LGBTQ issues and to train allies to stand with, and advocate for, LGBTQ people.'”

“Parents of students at two Kentucky elementary schools were shocked when they learned about an “animal pornography” video shown to their children in a Spanish classes Tuesday.
“‘Nothing more than animal pornography. I mean, there’s no other description for it,’ said Heather Prushing, whose 11-year-old daughter watched the video at Ward Elementary.
“The video shows teens dressed as animals as they perform simulated sex acts and speak in Spanish. In one scene, a chicken and a cow imitate sex”
