While it is unclear if this is explicitly a Common Core assignment or not, a group of students today in Tupelo, MS had quite an interesting assignment.

The sixth graders at Milam Elementary were given an assignment to do in class, and they were not to discuss this assignment with their parents. Naturally, telling a group of kids between the ages of ten and eleven to not tell their parents about an assignment is probably the surest way for them to tell their parents. In fact, it is typically a way to ensure a student sneaks a copy home. The reason why this is so concerning is that Tupelo prides itself on data driven instruction. Now, data is nice if it helps you figure out if a student needs extra help in a particular area. However, what if that effort is aimed at monitoring the political views of a student?

I'm as surprised as you are. Who could have guessed that someone who "joked" about working for OFA might not like grassroots righties?

There's an important lesson to be learned here, my friends. When you're arranging for your hard drive to be "scratched," make sure it's scratched deeply enough that stuff like this can't be recovered. No wonder she wanted to take a closer look at tea-party nonprofits. They're run by terrorists 'n stuff.

I was all set to post something snarky about this story from Santa Clara, California, where a college went into lockdown because someone mistook a cardboard cutout of a gun for a real weapon.

But hey, at least that incident involved a bona fide suspicion, mistaken though it was, that a ski-masked gunman was on the prowl. No such excuse is available for school officials in Suffolk, Virginia, who just did this: "A Suffolk second grader has been suspended for making gunlike noises while pointing a pencil at another student."

My name is Robert, and I am a Cornell University undergraduate student. However, I'm not sure if I want to be one any more. Allow me to explain.

Cornell, as an institution, appears to be complicit in a shocking amount of ecologically destructive, academically unethical, and scientifically deceitful behavior. Perhaps the most potent example is Cornell's deep ties to industrial GMO agriculture, and the affiliated corporations such as Monsanto. I'd like to share how I became aware of this troubling state of affairs.

Her main interests were "JESUS!," soccer and "having partys OH YEAH BABY." He was preoccupied with his new computer system, his hairstyle and deer hunting.

Neighbors say the two met through a home-schoolers' group. They live a short drive from each other on opposite sides of Lititz, a 9,000-resident borough in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, an hour west of Philadelphia.

Children at Mustang's Lakehoma Elementary School were originally supposed to discuss all religious activities of the season during the school's 22nd annual holiday play. However, Superintendent Karl Springer ordered the Christian portion of the program removed because of legal concerns.
