A New Jersey teacher will keep his job even though he was late for work 111 times over a two-year period. An arbitrator criticized Arnold Anderson’s claim that the quality of his teaching outweighed his tardiness. However, the arbitrator found the city of New Brunswick School District failed to give him adequate notice to correct his behavior and the 15-year classroom veteran is entitled to progressive discipline prior to termination.
A Black Lives Matter textbook could be coming to a school near you.
Aimed at white sixth grade through high school students, “Black Lives Matter (Special Reports)” “covers the shootings that touched off passionate protests, the work of activists to bring about a more just legal system and tensions in the U.S. society that these events have brought to light,” according to Ardo Publishing.
Authors Duchess Harris and Sue Bradford Edwards say the conversation needs to happen with young students, but critics say it goes too far.
Larry Elder said on “Fox and Friends Weekend” that this book is indoctrinating children to believe that that black people are victims and white people should feel guilty about it. He explained that doesn’t get to the root of the problem.
He said if the Black Lives Matter movement is really concerned about saving the lives of African Americans, they should focus on black-on-black crime, which is the number one cause of preventable death among young black males.
School leaders in Dickson County decided, after a summer of controversy surrounding the Confederate flag, the wise thing to do would be to ban all flags and banners. Students said they were told they would get kicked out if they bring an American flag onto school property.
“What is your reaction to the governor essentially saying that you all are complaining in teachers lounges– that’s what you do throughout the day?
David Rommick: That is a very unfortunate comment. In fact in Dayton Public Schools we don’t have teachers’ lounges, we have teachers’ workrooms.”
President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) told Congress late last week that Planned Parenthood has been following the law in its practice of attaining fetal tissue and body parts for sale.
HHS also insisted it does not fund fetal tissue research or elective abortion through Planned Parenthood. Rather, it gives the nation’s largest abortion provider money for its “critical health services.”
In a letter sent late Friday and addressed to Sens. Joni Ernst and Roy Blunt, HHS’s assistant secretary for legislation contended that HHS “knows of no violations” of U.S. fetal tissue laws on the part of government researchers or the companies that supply the tissue, and said also that HHS takes the word of non-profits supplying it fetal tissue for research that they are operating in line with all aspects of the law.
“Currently, we know of no violation of these laws in connection with the research done at our agencies,” stated Jim Esquea in the letter. “Furthermore … we have confirmed that HHS researchers working with fetal tissue obtained the tissue from non-profit organizations that provided assurances to us that they are in compliance with all applicable legal requirements.”
