400 Texas Teachers Turn Out for Free Concealed Handgun License Course
by Benjamin T. Lambright
December 31, 2012
In the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, the NRA and other organizations have moved to educate teachers and other school staff on firearms in order to try and prevent events like those of December 14, 2012 from happening again.
That movement is gaining support in some parts of the country. The Utah Shooting Sports Council recently offered free concealed weapons training to Utah Teachers and over 200 were expected to attend. Not to be out done, a gun store in Texas has nearly doubled that number during a recent class.
48% of Students in Grades 7-12 Say They Were Sexually Harassed in 2010-2011 School Year
by David Crary
November 7, 2011
It can be a malicious rumor whispered in the hallway, a lewd photo arriving by cell phone, hands groping where they shouldn't.
Added up, it's an epidemic - student-on-student sexual harassment that is pervasive in America's middle schools and high schools. During the 2010-11 school year, 48 percent of students in grades 7-12 experienced some form of sexual harassment in person or electronically via texting, email and social media, according to a major national survey being released Monday by the American Association of University Women.

5-year-olds forced to learn about AIDS - New York City introduces mandatory lesson plan
World Net Daily (NY)
March 21, 2006
New York City's Department of Education began a new curriculum yesterday that teaches 5-year-olds about AIDS and HIV. Parents are given the option of removing their children from the lessons but must educate them on the subject at home.
The children will not be taught AIDS is a sexually transmitted disease until sex education classes, which usually begin in the fourth grade. Bill Donohue of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights insists, however, that fact makes little difference. "If they were truly interested in protecting kids from diseases, they would start by teaching them about such things as food poisoning," he said.
50 Reasons to Not Vaccinate your Children
by Stimulating Humoral (blood Related) Immunity Alone Vaccines Have Caused An Imbalance in the Whole Immune Set Up (referred to as the Th1-Th2 Imbalance and A Resultant Shift to Th2) Leading to An Alarming Increase in Auto Immune Disorders. This Is Acknowled

There is no scientific study to determine whether vaccines have really prevented diseases.
Rather disease graphs show vaccines have been introduced at the end of epidemics when the disease was already in its last stages. In case of Small Pox the vaccine actually caused a great spurt in the incidence of disease before public outcry led to its withdrawal. There are no long-term studies on vaccine safety. Very short-term tests are carried out where the vaccinated subjects are checked against another group who are given another vaccine. Technically the tests should be carried out against a non-vaccinated group. No one really knows what protocols are followed at such industry based or industry sponsored trials.
6 Radical Parenting Ideas to Consider for Your Kids
by Heather Shumaker
January 18, 2017
If your child climbed up the playground slide, would you stop her? Would you be OK with her using a razor-sharp saw? If he needed to play or go to sleep, would you insist that he finish his homework?
Healthy risk is part of life. For parents, that can mean the risk of rethinking parenting wisdom you've always known. Keeping kids safe is not about sheltering them. Kids need risk and conflict-in kid-sized doses. Kids become safer when they gain tools and experiences they need to encounter life.
6-year-old boy suspended for pointing finger like a gun got off easy
by Alexandra Petri
January 3, 2013
I was stunned by news that the Montgomery County public school system had suspended a first grader for pointing his finger like a gun and (allegedly) saying, "Pow." I was stunned that he was the only one we rounded up.
First-graders have been getting away with horrible, heinous crimes for far too long. Just because you're six is no excuse. What about all the kids who get away, every year, with spreading "cooties"? Clearly, this is a threat of biological warfare. They should be expelled - then quarantined. What about all the kids who climb into boxes and announce that they are rocket ships? This violates lots of building codes, and those crafts are clearly not spaceworthy.
6-Year-Old Muslim Student Sends 20 Classmates To The Emergency Room

An entire class of first grade students were rushed to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia after their 6-year-old student distributed a dangerous substance to his class at Commodore John Barry Elementary School Tuesday, according to KYW-TV.
The 6-year-old girl handed out 11 bags of heroin to his friends. Two of the packets discovered by the teacher had been opened by the children, and one had been chewed open, investigators say. Lt. John Walker explained, "We know that one of the packages clearly looks like it was bitten and we do have one student saying that the young lady who did bring the substance to school did have that packet in her mouth." One concerned parent, Kristina Perry, said, "Apparently she was playing with the packet and showing it off."
