My high school colors were green and white. At graduation the boys wore green robes and the girls wore white. No one considered the girls inferior because of the color of their robes.

Today, we live in different times. My alma mater, Walter Johnson High School in Montgomery County, Md., is one of several schools to have decided that their commencement ceremony this year will feature single-color robes to respect transgender students and those who do not identify as either male or female. In the age of Caitlyn Jenner, any effort to classify the sexes is becoming increasingly difficult, if not downright impossible.

Yes, you read that right. Warrants have been issued for four people under suspicion of cheering for family and friends at a high school graduation.

Four people in Senatobia, Mississippi have been served with arrest warrants and are facing possible $500 fines and/or up to six months in jail - for cheering at a high school graduation ceremony. "They yelled out and they excessively celebrated during the calling of names," said Superintendent Jay Foster, who pressed charges afterwards on grounds of 'disturbing the peace'. "When you make a conscious decision to disrupt that for that individual, what is too harsh?" Is this a rhetorical question?

A recent visitor to the Field Guide to Hummingbirds Facebook page asked a question that comes up frequently in discussions of the use of petroleum-based food dyes in hummingbird feeder solutions:

Have any scientific studies been conducted to determine the effects of these chemicals on hummingbirds? Some people are surprised to learn that the answer is an emphatic "NO." Despite oft-repeated (and oft-debunked) urban legends that the San Diego Zoo, Audubon Society, or some other trustworthy source tested red dye on hummingbirds and found one or more specific effects (liver damage, kidney damage, cancer, tumors, "birth defects," weakened eggshells, or, in some versions of the story, no harm at all), there is no evidence that any such testing has ever been conducted on hummingbirds by anyone anywhere.

The Barbours are suing for their daughter's right to use medicinal marijuana in school, while attorneys for the Maple Shade school district say doing so would run afoul of the law because marijuana is still considered a controlled dangerous substance.t

It's prompted a landmark legal battle that could reverberate in New Jersey and beyond. The Barbours are suing for their daughter's right to use medicinal marijuana in school, while attorneys for the Maple Shade school district say doing so would run afoul of the law because marijuana is still considered a controlled dangerous substance by the federal government with no medicinal value.

A West Virginia college student is back in the classroom after the school kicked him out because he was homeschooled.

In March, 22-year-old Jacob Berry was dismissed from West Virginia Junior College in Bridgeport. Berry was homeschooled by his father, Dr. Nathan Berry, and his mother, Cynthia Berry, who holds a lifetime teacher's license. Upon graduation, he worked a few odd jobs before deciding to study information technology at the local community college this past Fall.

Texas State Representative Jason Villalba (R-Dallas) is once again in the spotlight after submitting yet another Orwellian proposal, H.B. 985.

Now with H.B. 985, Villalba intends to give school officials the authority to force psychological screenings of students that teachers and staff diagnose as having mental health issues. Once the process is set in motion by school officials, parents would be forced to take their child to a mental health professional within 30 days, under threat of suspension of the child from school.

Eurocentric school curricula continues to prevail in a society that is increasingly brown.

Homeschooling, common among white Americans, is showing an increase among African-Americans kids, as well. African Americans now make up about 10 percent of all homeschooled children in this fastest-growing form of education. However, the reasons for black kids to be homeschooled may not be the same as for white kids. My research shows that black parents homeschool their children due to white racism.

In the battle against the Common Core, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that the proliferation of these top-down education standards is driving a massive increase in the number of homeschoolers.

Families are realizing that if they want their children to benefit from individualized education, if they want to protect their children from data mining, and if they want to be free of the Common Core's one-size-fits-all approach to education, homeschooling (and certain private schools) is the only way to go.
