Category Archives: Village of the Damned

Something is terribly wrong with the Education ‘Village‘ of America – the complete breakdown of America’s government controlled education system through indoctrination and Socialism. Our children have become truly ‘damned‘ and will have little chance to truly succeed in this nation – UNLESS – the system can be overturned. Sorry Hillary, but the Village thing hasn’t worked so well – for the children of America.

This category was so-named because of then First Lady, Hillary Clinton’s comment, “It takes a village to raise a child.” In addition to my feelings that our children are truly ‘damned‘ as long as this system is allowed to continue.

The ‘Village‘ is the place that I would not wish to be in today. I was privileged to participate in one of the last non-socialist school systems. Hell – I don’t know – maybe it had already begun, but I had great teachers. At 74 years of age – I can still picture and name over 90% of those whose care I was placed into. What we present here includes a range of commentary by a wide range of authors, which may well not fit into other designated categories. So here we provide, well – you know – “a little of this and a little of that!“

As the esteemed Dr. Rosemary Stein, M.D. has stated; The only way socialism has any chance in America is for the education system to push it in schools. Remember, the father of their modern education ‘Elite’ beliefs is John Dewey. Dewey was a communist, failed teacher who pushed what are now clearly failed education theories. Here is the quote of the day. “This militant crowd is comprised of uninformed and misinformed people looking at themselves as unfortunate, underpaid, underappreciated victims of capitalism, overwhelmed with jealousy that there are people who are everything they are not.”You are going to have to take ownership over the education of your children ~ Rosemary Stein, MD

The time is past due for we the people to take back the responsibility of who raises and who teaches OUR children… With the the words of our contributors both through new posts and archives of the past, we will do our best to bring you the dastardly news so that you may arm your selves to prepare for the ongoing battles and the ugliness of what THEY want to do to destroy this nation through THEIR ‘re-education’ system. ~ Jeffrey Bennett, Kettle Moraine Publications

Straight Out of History Book: NYC Teachers Caught Using Communist Website to Teach 3rd Graders

The rabid antisemitism on college campuses that has bubbled to the surface since October might have been outdone by two radical third-grade teachers in Brooklyn and a twisted version of “Wheels on the Bus” pulled from a communist website.

The New York Post somehow learned two elementary school teachers are teaching an anti-Israel song, “Wheels on the Tank,” to children at Public School 705, an arts and science school located in Prospect Heights. Continue reading

This 1st Amendment Win Is a 1st Step ‘In the Right Direction

Two, one-two-three-four!
Ev’rybody’s talking ’bout
Faggits, Maggits, Homos, Dykes, Genders, Benders
This-ism, that-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m

Thanks to a federal judge, two California teachers who oppose their district’s deceptive policy against parents are returning to work.

During school-wide training a couple of years ago, Rincon Middle School teachers Elizabeth Mirabelli and Lori Ann West, a devout Catholic and Christian, respectively, were shocked to learn they would be required to keep their students’ gender identities a secret from the kids’ own parents, unless such a student gave them permission otherwise.

“High School Satan Club” will now be included among the extracurricular offerings at Olathe Northwest High School in Kansas after the school district gave the greenlight for its creation.

The club’s approval comes amid growing opposition from other students and parents with concerns about kids being encouraged to worship Satan.

A petition to stop the club had garnered more than 7,800 signatures at the time of publishing. Continue reading

It’s Not Their Mindset That’s Holding Children Back At School

Children’s ‘growth mindset’, characters and attitudes to learning have little impact on how well they do at school, according to a new study.

Instead, researchers point to external factors such as school funding, pre-school placements and opportunities outside school as much more important in bringing about meaningful change. Continue reading

Seattle High Schooler FAILS Quiz Where He Marked Only Women Can Get Pregnant and That All Men Have Penises

A Seattle high school with a recent history of activism is facing outrage from a parent after her 10th grader was marked wrong for saying only men have penises and only women get pregnant.

The parent and her student, who remained anonymous out of fear of backlash, said the answers were given on a true-false test in an Ethic Studies World History class at Chief Sealth International High School.

The student put that it is ‘true’ that only men have penises and only women can get pregnant on his ‘Understanding Gender vs. Sex’ quiz.

His mother claims the student failed the portion of the quiz as a result of his answers, which led her to speak out.

‘I keep trying to wrap my head around how it is legal to teach inaccurate information and force students to answer against their beliefs or receive negative scores,’ she said. Continue reading

Millions of US Students Missing School as Attendance Declines

The frequency of student absences in the United States has risen significantly compared to pre-pandemic levels, with high-poverty schools facing particularly alarming rates.

In a new study using 2021–22 school year data from the U.S. Department of Education and published by Attendance Works on Friday, it was revealed that nearly 30% of students — approximately 14.7 million — faced chronic absence, significantly affecting the learning experience for those who did attend school.

The Truth About Scholastic

A Christian activist and author says a popular company that’s been supplying kids with reading material for decades is also responsible for the pornographic books in their school libraries.

Kirk Cameron has lately been traveling to public libraries across the country to counter drag queen story hours by reading kids his Christian books. In that journey, he says, he has realized there is more work to be done.

According to the former TV star, Scholastic, the company that has been providing books to kids since the ’40s and holding book fairs since the early ’80s, is responsible for many of the controversial and pornographic books that can now be found in many U.S. school libraries.

It has adopted a recurring pattern of sexualized content in recent years and last month pledged to “redouble” its efforts to “combat the laws restricting children’s access” to pornographic books.

“You really can’t get away from them if your kids are going to school,” he laments. “This stuff is pervasive. They’re not just a thousand-pound gorilla in the space of children’s books; they are children’s books.” Continue reading

Oregon Just Dropped All Graduation Standards, Failing All of Its Students in the Name of ‘Equity

In public education’s latest blunder, the Oregon Department of Education has just decided that basic reading, writing and math skills are not required for students to graduate with a high school diploma

Prior to the passage of Senate Bill 744 in the Oregon Legislative Assembly’s 2021 session, the state’s “Assessment of Essential Skills” requirement for high school graduation was sensible: “read and comprehend a variety of text, write clearly and accurately,” and “apply mathematics in a variety of settings.” Students were required to demonstrate these skills by “earning at or above a cut score on the Oregon Statewide Summative Assessment test.” Continue reading

Benson: The Ongoing Battle Over Public School Books

It’s History Repeating Itself

Get your children OUT of the System – NOW

It seems like the public schools in Hillsborough County, Florida have been having problems similar to those experienced in Kanawha County, West Virginia public schools 49 years ago now. Considering the true agenda of the public education system in this country – indoctrination rather than education – should anyone really be surprised?

And it looks as if this has been going on for while. In an article published back in March of this year in the Tampa Bay Times it was noted that “This Book Is Gay” a non-fiction book that offers guidance to LGBTQ youth will no longer be available at any Hillsborough County middle school. Continue reading

Carl Sagan Saw US Schools Were Ruining Kids Decades Ago: ‘Something Terrible Has Happened

Despite the extravagant spending, our schools are failing our kids. Carl Sagan saw it. John Taylor Gatto saw it. And we all see it today.

My wife and I recently met with the principal of the school our daughter attends to discuss her education future.

My daughter, who turns 12 in a few days, wants to go to a different school in the fall, largely because many of her friends – who are a year ahead of her – are graduating to new schools. (And also because her teacher, whom she adored, took a job in a different district.)

When we stepped into the principal’s office, she offered us chairs. She was warm, knowledgeable, and helpful, and I got the feeling she knows my daughter and wants what is best for her. I suspect my daughter will return to the school for one more year, but it’s a conversation we’ll have together. Continue reading

School Kids Are So Violent Coming Out of the Pandemic That They’re Sending Teachers to the Hospital

… but an expert says to resist ‘get tough’ approaches!

There’s a lot of evidence that schools and students are more violent places after the pandemic. Getty images

The 2022-23 school year was a particularly violent year for educators.

In Florida, a high school student beat a paraprofessional unconscious. A 15-year-old in Georgia left her teacher with difficulty walking. And a group of students in Texas sent their assistant principal to the hospital after an assault.

Recent headlines suggest the 2023-24 school year may not be much different. Continue reading

K-12 Education Satisfaction in U.S. Ties Record Low

Americans’ satisfaction with the quality of K-12 education in the U.S. has fallen six percentage points in the past year to match the record-low 36% reading on this measure, which Gallup has tracked for 24 years. In contrast, parents of K-12 students remain largely satisfied with the quality of the education their oldest child is receiving, as 76% say they are “completely” or “somewhat” satisfied, significantly higher than the 67% low on that measure from 2013.

Benson: Socialism Is Compulsion

Socialism, in many varied forms, is presented to us as the panacea for all the world’s problems. Actually, it is the solution for none of them and a major contributor to most of them, but the socialists hope you never figure that out. If you did, you might be tempted to repudiate socialism, which they want you to embrace.

A major component of socialism in this country is the public school system. Those who have read Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto will recall that #10 of the list of planks Marx listed as part of the agenda for taking over a country was Free Education for all children in public (government) schools. Now admittedly, the content of the Manifesto was not original with Marx. He was hired to write the Manifesto for the League of the Just (Illuminati) so you can probably figure the ten points Marx listed in the Manifesto were Illuminist goals. Continue reading

Benson: Leftist Public Schools Think They Own Your Children

Recently someone sent me a copy of the Whistleblower magazine, which is published by World Net Daily (580 E Street, P.0. Box 100, Hawthorne, Nevada 89415-0100). I’d heard of this magazine but never seen it until now. The copy I was sent was the April, 2023 issue and all of it dealt with what goes on in public schools today and none of it is fun reading by any means. But then, what goes on in government schools in our day is not exactly fun reading either–not fun, but necessary to know. Continue reading

Benson: Why So Many Christian Kids In Anti-Christ Public Schools?

I recently got a tract from Frontline Ministries in Columbia, South Carolina that dealt with Christian pastors ignoring what goes on in government schools. The author of the tract, E. Ray Moore, Th. M. noted some interesting statistics regarding the attitudes of many Christian pastors regarding the mushrooming anti-Christian bias in what passes for education in public (government) schools. This is something I have noted in evangelical circles for almost five decades now. Many evangelicals, pastors included, if given their choice, will defend public education rather than expose its evils. Then they wonder why they have problems with their kids who went to public schools! Continue reading

Indoctrination, Intimidation & Intolerance: What Passes for Education Today

Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that have increasingly come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning.” ~ Investigative journalist Annette Fuentes

This is what it means to go back-to-school in America today.

Instead of being taught the three R’s of education (reading, writing and arithmetic), young people are being drilled in the three I’s of life in the American police state: indoctrination, intimidation and intolerance. Continue reading

The Nightmare of American Public School Teaching

Moral injury is driving teachers out of the profession. Here’s how to help them stay.

Protesters gather at the State Capitol in Salem, Oregon, on February 18, 2019, calling for education funding during the “March for Our Students” rally.

Soon after Annie Phan started teaching at a small San Francisco public high school in 2017, she realized Stanford’s teacher education program had not prepared her for the moral and ethical complexities she would face. Many students are low-income, with an chronic absenteeism rate of about 40 percent, and the school itself has few resources (like counselors) to compensate. Continue reading

Now China is funding America’s PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Communist nation has channeled $17M into more than 143 K-12 districts – sparking GOP probe

China is funding America’s public schools to the tune of $17 million dollars, it has been revealed, with Republicans now probing the disturbing donations.

The report by Parents Defending Education states that the close coordination between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and U.S. schools to establish Confucius Classrooms has historically included 143 school districts in 34 states and Washington, D.C. Continue reading

OK superintendent not backing down in fight to crush ‘woke’ ideology in public schools

The state superintendent of public schools in Oklahoma unapologetically says there is no better history book than the Bible because there is another “state religion” called atheism competing for the minds of children in the classroom.

Ryan Walters, a former history teacher, intends for his state’s students to have that knowledge despite hair-pulling panic from the Far Left over his actions.

His anti-woke stance that has made some people uncomfortable: The Oklahoman, the largest newspaper in the state, calls him a “polarizing figure in state politics.” Continue reading

Benson: American Education – A “Leftist Cult

Get your children OUT of the System – NOW

A recent article by Andrea Widburg on the American Thnker should have been quite illuminating for those with children still unfortunate enough to be in public schools. Though I disagreed a little with Widburg’s timeframe, her take on public schools and the National Education Association were right on target. Continue reading

July 18, 2023: School Days, School Days: Dear old, Queer old school days… …The insanity will not end

Math and reading scores for 13-year-olds plummeted in the pandemic, sending many students back to levels not seen since the 1970s
The math and reading test scores for 13-year-olds fell dramatically during the coronavirus pandemic and there are no ‘green shoots’ of recovery yet, the nation’s educational watchdog has warned.

Average math scores for 13-year-olds fell nine points from the 2019-2020 academic year to the 2022-23 year, according to the Nation’s Report Card, from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

Average reading scores fell four points over the same period, during which the pandemic wrought havoc on the nation’s education system, shuttering classrooms and forcing children to study online…. (Continue to full article)

Emotion-Based Schooling Is Not the Education Our Children Need
To mark the end of the school year, Gallup enlisted students in grades 5-12 to rank their schools in a June report card.

With an average grade of B-, the overall score isn’t so bad. Looking closer at the individual categories, however, tells a different story.

As the chart below shows, the higher ranking categories were in areas related to emotional support, such as racial and gender respect, safety, and inclusion. The lower ranking, categories, however, were more in line with what school is supposed to emphasize.

Less than a quarter of students ranked the quality of teaching at their schools as excellent. Preparation for the future and introduction to possible careers came in at 20 percent and 17 percent respectively. And excitement about learning? That came in dead last with only 13% giving their schools an A grade… (Continue to full article)

Biden’s Student Loan Cancellation Gets a New Challenger
Biden’s plan B to reduce the over $1.6 trillion that borrowers owe in student loans is already facing pushback, and one House Republican said he’s hopeful the Supreme Court will block the president’s Saving on a Valuable Education (SAVE) plan.

A spokesperson for Representative Ralph Norman told Newsweek that the South Carolina Republican would support efforts in the House to stop Biden’s new debt forgiveness plan from going through. But he said such legislation is unlikely to get through the Democratic-controlled Senate or to be signed into law by the president

The funds needed to repay those loans must come from somewhere, Biden is trying to take students loan obligations and offload them to other people who did not take out those loans and who did not receive the benefit of the education… (Continue to full article)

Seattle public schools will offer ‘gender affirming care’ to students as young as 11 years old
Schools in Seattle are offering free ‘gender affirming care’ to students as young as 11, a prominent parental rights organization has found.

Documents obtained by Parents Defending Education (PDE) this week reveal health centers at Meany Middle School and Nova High School are allowing students to ‘conveniently’ seek the treatment on-site and for free.

Nova Wellness’s website does not specify what is meant by ‘gender-affirming care’. The provider for the two centers, Country Doctor Community Health Centers (CDCHC) claims to offer hormone therapy and sex-change surgeries for adolescents… (Continue to full article)

Parents, Plan Your Escape From Public Schools

With math and reading scores lower than they’ve ever been recorded, a researcher says the American education system has received another disappointing report card.

The math scores for the lowest performing students hit levels last seen in the 1970s, while their reading scores were actually lower than the first year the data was collected, in 1971.

According to federal data, average scores for 13-year-olds declined four points in reading and nine points in math. Pandemic lockdowns carry much of the blame, but David Randall of the National Association of Scholars says the Biden administration has not helped. Continue reading

They Stood Up To Schools Over Special Ed Concerns…

Then Child Protective Services Arrived!

When their 7-year-old son, Tristan, who has autism and is nonverbal, arrived home from school with bruises and a lump on his head, Bronx parents Luis and Michelle Diaz began to worry.

They asked the school to look into the 2021 incident and requested a new paraeducator for their child. The classroom aid hadn’t mentioned the injury, despite messaging them throughout the day, the parents said, erasing their trust in her.

But the family’s search for answers and solutions brought them head-on into a problem they hadn’t anticipated: The school pointed the finger back at the Diaz parents, alleging neglect and inadequate supervision of their child. Soon, a caseworker with the Administration for Children’s Services, known as ACS, the New York City agency responsible for investigating suspected child abuse, showed up at their door.

“We were just trying to advocate for our son and find out what happened like any parent would,” Michelle Diaz said. “This is where the retaliation started.” Continue reading

Anghis: Education Extremism Rising ~ America’s Way of Life Threatened

Even when I was a little kid, I understood that because I was born in this great nation I was extremely blessed. Seeing how people had to live in other nations, pitiful homes, lack of food and water, virtually no education, ancient forms of transportation, dictatorial governments, and so many other things that make life miserable but here in America we had it all. As a child, I could not even imagine a life of that nature. Today I see a much different America. Yes, we still have prosperity, nice houses, and a modern mode of transportation but the regime that is in power now wants to bring all of that to a screeching halt.

We are seeing stupidity reign in our seats of power. Things that you would never even think about fifty years ago are going mainstream now. The absolute perversion in our schools with drag shows, porn in the libraries, and the character of teachers that are allowed to ‘teach’ our kids is appalling. Teachers that we have today would be in jail in my day and they should be today as well. Continue reading
