This Elementary School Abolished Homework, And The Results Were Astonishing

Late last summer, Texas teacher Brandy Young made internet waves when she sent a note about homework to the parents of her students. Instead of the normal spend-30-minutes-a-day-on-homework command that parents normally hear, Mrs. Young’s note informed them that she would not be giving homework at all. Instead, she asked families to spend more time reading, eating dinner, and playing outside, all factors which research has found to contribute to greater student success.

Roughly One Third Of College Students Spend Their Loans On Spring Break And Partying

There is a massive student loan epidemic in the United States. Over $1.4 trillion in student debt is floating around in our economy lingering like an albatross on the necks of many young students. While the idea of getting a college degree is more popular today than ever, it would seem like going to spring break is also very popular. It is hard to track how students spend their student loans. Obviously most (if not all) goes to pay for college for the vast majority of students. But some use student loans to finance unnecessary items like partying it up on spring break and getting inebriated to celebrate a semester well done. A new LendEDU poll found that roughly one-third of college students used a part of their student loans to finance their spring break. While this is not the bulk of young college going Americans, the number is somewhat startling. Priorities folks!

Cardiff University told students and staff to avoid gendered words like “sportsmanship” and “manpower,” also saying that “first name” or “forename” is preferable to “Christian name.” The inclusive-language guidelines, which have been in place for a few years but were first reported by the Telegraph Thursday, are an effort to “promote fairness and equality through raising awareness about potentially discriminatory vocabulary.”

Campus Police Are Using ‘Bias Response Teams’ And ‘Threat Assessments’ To Control Students

According to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), at least 231 colleges and universities have created ‘Bias Response Teams’ or BRT’s. BRT’s encourage nearly 3 MILLION students to anonymously report offensive free speech to administrators and campus police. Encouraging students and faculty to anonymously report one another for subversive or offensive speech is Un-American.

DHS Quietly Testing Mandatory Facial Recognition of Passengers *Exiting* U.S.

We’re all used to having to identify ourselves as we enter a country. It is the only way we can hope to have any attempt at a secure border. But, so-called “exit controls,” where documents are checked as travelers are leaving the country, were popularized last century by Nazi Germany as a great way to ensure that they could control, round up, and exterminate the Jews and other “undesirables.”
