The number of homeschooled children in Wilkes County continued to increase in 2015-16, but not quite by as much as in adjoining counties and statewide.

Proponents of Senate Bill 1146 say they need to give students grounds to sue religious schools for teaching their religion, because 'discrimination.'

People used to expect that attending something sponsored by religious organization required abiding by mores and behavior that religious body professes. There was a simple option for avoiding the ideas or practices of a belief system you don't agree with: don't frequent their space. This courteous expectation naturally applied to all religions and expressions of faith. California is now attempting to end this system of free association that allows people to define their local and religious cultures. California Senate Bill 1146 (SB 1146), which is slated for a vote Tuesday, seeks to limit the religious exemptions from federal Title IX regulations that colleges and universities use for hiring instructors, teaching classes, and conducting student services in line with their faith. Under SB 1146, a college would be eligible for an exemption only for training pastors or theology teachers .

No one knows exactly how many children are being taught at home, but new figures suggest numbers in England are growing. Why is this?

In some of England's largest local authority areas, hundreds of young people are being home educated: Kent listed 1,285 children; Essex, 1,234; Norfolk, 1,052; and Lancashire, 918. About 85% of local authorities documented a rise in home education over those three years, with 27 authorities reporting a doubling of numbers.

One would think that teaching about inventions would be easy. Unfortunately, since many of our greatest inventors lived during the age of what is known as the patent wars, giving proper credit where credit is due is often difficult.

Too often I have read history books in which an invention is casually mentioned as part of one person's biography. But we have many inventions that need to be studied as part of their own timeline. Sometimes, a product's timeline from start to finish can even surpass the length of a person's timeline. An inkling of an idea could start in the mind of one person, only to be fully realized a decade later by someone new, and then perfected decades later by a third person, and lastly patented by someone not even involved with the early steps of the invention. Just Google "who invented (insert product)" and you'll see. What is an easy way to get started on studying inventions? Incorporate them with your geography!

Dr. Goebbels spoke to reporters inside the gymnasium at Woods Lake Elementary School Thursday afternoon, saying, "The pupils shall continue their studies as planned. I expect everything will run smoothly and efficiently."

There are two drills that are conducted in every public school across America, and parents should be leery as to the end game intent of these drills. The drills are popularly known as bus evacuation drill and school lock-down drills.

On the surface, these drills seem like a good idea as they appear to be designed to protect children in times of emergency. However, the manner in which some of these drills have been acted upon is very concerning. In the past couple of days, the following letter has been appearing all over the internet and the persons reporting on this development are acting as if this is something recent and novel and that we should suddenly be concerned about.

College graduates held onto more jobs during the recession than those who only completed high school, according to a new Georgetown study. They also continue to earn more: somewhere between $280,000 and $550,000 over a lifetime.

Young people considering college should certainly be aware of these numbers, but they should also take them with a grain of salt. A statistical average provides meaningful information about a population, but not an individual. Just because many people find financial security through college doesn't mean you must also.

Apps that are designed to make the user nearly anonymous have found favor with those who prey on young girls

Seeking affirmation, sexual or otherwise, is an age-old human condition, but the preponderance of mobile devices and social media apps allows us to cast a net into a worldwide abyss of unknown potential. The United Nations said there were more than 7 billion cellphone subscriptions in 2015 - 97 for every 100 people on Earth. Many criminal justice experts, educators and parents say that net has grown too large to leave unchecked in the hands of children and young adults who do not have the tools or the wherewithal to recognize when they're being duped - or worse.

California health authorities are increasingly applying police state measures by forcing vaccinations and practicing genetic discrimination - violating constitutional principles and privacy rights.

The state's schools are now being penalized financially for not enforcing mandatory vaccinations; meanwhile children are being expelled for having a genetic predisposition to certain diseases - even when they don't actually have the diseases in question. Despite much controversy and outrage over California's vaccination laws, it seems that now health officials are emboldened to push even more authoritarian measures regarding the 'health' of the state's citizens.

The walls of the power structure are beginning to buckle, those that have served the power brokers are beginning to respond to their own instinct of self survival.

Climate engineering is weather warfare, nothing less. The highly toxic materials being used in the ongoing atmospheric aerosol spraying programs all settle down through the air column, this makes geoengineering a form of biological warfare as well. Unimaginable and irreparable decimation is being inflicted on the biosphere and the entire web of life by the ongoing climate modification SRM programs. How long can the insanity in our skies continue without the consequences to the Earth and the human race becoming total?
