While Superintendents are Dividing Kids by Race: Math Scores Falling

Did your Superintendent mention this to you or your school board members? didn’t think so.  I mean, they are busy dividing us by race! Psst…they can’t blame COVID!

For the first time in the study’s 50-year history, the National Assessment of Educational Progress’ 2020 Long-Term Trend Assessment revealed that U.S. 13-year-olds’ scores in both reading and math experienced statistically significant declines over the past eight years.

“The reading and mathematics scores of 13-year-old students fell between 2012 and 2020—the first time in the almost 50-year history of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) long-term trend (LTT) assessment,” the National Center for Education Statistics announced in a press release last week.

More money spent per pupil resulted in lower reading and math scores in American public schools.

Despite record-high education spending, these declines are the latest evidence casting significant doubt on Common Core’s learning standards and approach to student improvement.

        "In fact, in some instances parents could be prevented from opposing sex changes for their own children. Witnesses testified to Parliament that they had been helped by therapy that would, under the new law, be banned."

Conservatives allow Canada’s conversion therapy ban to pass with zero opposition

Passage of Bill C-4, which goes to the senate next, is a huge disappointment because Conservative MPs who objected to the ban previously offered no resistance this time.

On the morning of December 1, Conservative leader Erin O’Toole informed the press that he would allow his caucus a free vote on the so-called “conversion therapy ban,” which months earlier had been the subject of intense scrutiny. While most MPs opposed conversion therapy, there were concerns that the deliberately broad definition proposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals would ban pastoral conversations between clergy and their parishioners and leave adults with unwanted same-sex attraction unable to receive the counselling they desired. In fact, in some instances parents could be prevented from opposing sex changes for their own children.

Witnesses testified to Parliament that they had been helped by therapy that would, under the new law, be banned. One young woman, now married with children, related how a sexual assault had left her traumatized, confused, and in desperate need of help that this law would deny her. As a result of testimonies such as these and outstanding concerns with the definition, MP Garnett Genuis launched the website Fix the Definition, replete with a list of ways the Liberals could amend the legislation, including:

Ensure that no laws discriminate against Canadians by limiting what services they can receive based on their sexual orientation or gender identity;

Allow parents to speak with their own children about sexuality and gender, and set  house rules about sex and relationships;

Allow free and open conversations about sexuality and sexual behaviour; and

Not criminalize professional and religious counselling voluntarily requested and  consented to by LGBTQ2 Canadians.

When the Liberals declined to address these concerns, 62 Conservative MPs voted against it. Thus, it came as a nasty and heartbreaking shock when on the afternoon of December 1, the Conservative Party presented a motion to fast-track Bill C-4, skipping the entire deliberative process entirely to send the bill directly to the Senate. The motion passed with unanimous consent — not a single MP stood up to say ‘nay.’ This is one of the few instances where a single vote would have ensured that the deliberative process was respected. All of the witness testimony, all of the concerns, all of the hard work put in by stakeholders to ensure that those most impacted by this law would be heard — gone.

        "Parents and pastors can be jailed up to 5 years...The law would give Children’s Aid Societies the excuse to separate the child from his or her parents, charging that they are practicing a form of “conversion therapy” and that their traditional parenting represents “torture.”

https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/trudeaus-ban-on-conversion-therapy-will-outlaw-biblical-teaching-on-homosexuality-divide-families/

Trudeau’s ban on ‘conversion therapy’ will outlaw Biblical teaching on homosexuality, divide families

Trudeau's true goal behind Bill C-4, is to make it illegal to share biblical teaching or moral guidance about transgenderism and homosexuality, whether you’re a religious leader or loving parents. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C-4 will make the expression of these Christian sexual teachings illegal, whether they are from a pulpit to warn believers about the consequences of sin, or in the intimacy of a family home as a private conversation between parents and their gender-confused child. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It went straight from Trudeau’s election platform to the floor of the Senate. Not one single Conservative MP stood up to vote against unanimous consent, and so force the normal parliamentary debates and votes to happen. Not even the pro-life MPs who were sitting in the House.

Now it’s up to the chamber of sober second thought to decide whether parents and religious leaders should be criminalized. Obviously, the 60 or so Conservative MPs who voted against the previous version of Bill C-4 were threatened or intimidated into letting it pass.

No doubt, the specter of being kicked out of the Conservative caucus – just like O’Toole did to Senator Denise Batters, Derek Sloan MP – and the suspension of CPC National Councillor Bert Chen (driven by O’Toole), hung like the sword of Damocles over their heads. But fear of getting punished by O’Toole is no excuse for holding one’s tongue and fast-tracking what is arguably one of the most dangerous and unconstitutional pieces of proposed legislation ever seen in Canada.

This abandonment of parliamentary democracy is a sign of Mr. Trudeau moving closer to having the dictatorial power he has long admired and desired. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Parents and pastors can be jailed up to 5 years - There were many reasons for MPs to allow debate on this bill. Not only does it take away the right of adults who no longer wish to identify as LGBT to get the type of clinical therapy or spiritual counselling that they want for themselves, as there are even graver reasons.

For me, the most alarming aspect of C-4 is that it can put parents in jail for up to five years if they dare to affirm their gender-confused child in the body he or she was born. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bill C-4 will make it illegal for mothers and fathers to prevent their underage daughters from taking puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s undeniable, from the Liberal government’s own lips, that Bill C-4 is really a parental prosecution bill. The true goal of the conversion therapy ban is to enable law enforcement and para-legal agencies to reach into the home and the church. Even if law enforcement doesn’t choose to lock up the parents in jail, there are other ways to ruin their lives. The law would give Children’s Aid Societies the excuse to separate the child from his or her parents, charging that they are practicing a form of “conversion therapy” and that their traditional parenting represents “torture.”

It's not just conservative Christians:  couldn't the government come after Orthodox Jewish shuls and day-schools under this, too?

         "On Sunday, Lia Thomas, 22, put in an astounding performance at the Zippy Invitational Event in Akron, Ohio, that saw her finish the 1,650 yard freestyle 38 seconds ahead of her teammate..."

          As long as "Lia" is "allowed to compete," why get mad just because "she" wins by 10 hours and 27 minutes? It's not the time that counts, it's the pronoun.

A trans swimmer and senior at the University of Pennsylvania, who previously spent three years competing as a man, smashed two US records while competing at a weekend contest, sparking fresh claims of unfairness.

On Sunday, Lia Thomas, 22, put in an astounding performance at the Zippy Invitational Event in Akron, Ohio, that saw her finish the 1,650 yard freestyle 38 seconds ahead of her teammate  Anna Sofia Kalandaze.

Thomas's winning time was 15:59:71, with her UPenn teammate Anna Kalandaze coming second with a time of 16:37:44. 

Thomas's win was a record for the Zippy Meet, and the pool where the event took place. But she also managed to smash two US women's swimming records during earlier races at the same event.

         "A team source who was at Wednesday’s meeting says the administration drew a line in the sand and announced that Lia Thomas wasn’t going anywhere and it was non-negotiable."

Female UPenn Swimmers Demoralized: "No Matter How Much Work They Put In, They're Going To Lose"

Two female University of Pennsylvania swimmers have recently voiced their frustrations to OutKick regarding their teammate, transgender Penn swimmer Lia Thomas, who is smashing collegiate records previously set by biological females in the sport.

Thomas has brought teammates to tears and created a sense of hopelessness among the female athletes, reports Outkick, which interviewed the students anonymously as campus brass has urged them not to talk to media:

The second Penn swimmer to come forward was at the University of Akron Zippy Invitational where she watched Lia Thomas beat fellow teammate Anna Kalandadze by 38 seconds in the 1650 freestyle. OutKick’s source described Penn swimmers on the Akron pool deck as upset and crying, knowing they were going to be demolished by Thomas.

“They feel so discouraged because no matter how much work they put in it, they’re going to lose. Usually, they can get behind the blocks and know they out-trained all their competitors and they’re going to win and give it all they’ve got,” the source said.

“Now they’re having to go behind the blocks knowing no matter what, they do not have the chance to win. I think that it’s really getting to everyone.”

According to Outkick, Thomas bragged on the sidelines at Akron about being number one in the nation.

“That was so easy, I was cruising,” Thomas allegedly said after one race. After another race, Thomas was allegedly unhappy with his time but said “At least I’m still No. 1 in the country.”

~~~~~~~~~~~

A team source who was at Wednesday’s meeting says the administration drew a line in the sand and announced that Thomas wasn’t going anywhere and it was non-negotiable. That leaves disgusted teammates no choice but to either stay quiet or speak up against the wishes of the school and risk repercussions.

SHAME.  ON.  THE UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION.

The want publicity from a freak rather than support student-athletes.

All the real women who have to compete against this Frankenstein need to just step down from the blocks at the starter's pistol, rather than legitimize the unfairness.

        "In the midst of a national furor over a sexually explicit graphic novel, the school has proclaimed it has the duty to expose children to pornographic imagery — to support free speech."

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/12/vermont_school_commits_to_kiddie_porn_as_enlightening_for_children.html

Vermont school commits to kiddie porn as enlightening for children

Vermont's Essex-Westford School District, which includes the town of Essex that last year fired a high school lifeguard for merely questioning Critical Race Theory, has done it again.  In the midst of a national furor over a sexually explicit graphic novel, the school has proclaimed it has the duty to expose children to pornographic imagery — to support free speech.

It is axiomatic that free speech rights do not extend fully into schools — they never have.  For example, the First Amendment protects quite a shocking variety of pornographic materials, including bondage and rape videos.  Are those acceptable, protected school teaching materials?  School administrations are supposed to be answerable to the appropriate needs of children.

But ESWD has declared itself the champion of the minuscule percentage of children afflicted with gender dysphoria, which not only is rare, but most often disappears with adulthood.  All children must be sacrificed at Essex-Westford.

The book in question, Gender Queer, created a national controversy not because the subject of the book is a "non-binary" student (a multitude of such titles abound, as all informed parents are now unavoidably aware), but because the book features "pages of explicit illustrations depicting oral sex [sic]."  The school's defiant letter to parents avoids mentioning this fact, instead proclaiming itself the defender of constitutional values:

Essex High School recently learned that a gender-affirming book in our library is being discussed on various websites. There is a long history of certain books being banned in the United States, so this is not a new conversation.

This sentence marks the beginning of a perverse justification for distributing pornography to children.  The rationale employed would serve to groom children sexually for adult sodomy as a child's "right."  The rights-defending hero-school fails to observe that there is not a long history of providing sexually explicit graphic novels to schoolchildren by public schools — this is very much a novel conversation.

Defying a request to remove the book, the school instead weaponized the GBQLT etc. movement as an excuse:

At Essex High School ... we know how critically important it is within our curriculum ... to have a representation of a plethora of lived experiences. Our students have a right to well-balanced library collection, including Gender Queer ... which is one title sitting among numerous titles featuring cisgender, heterosexual relationships which, on a side note, are not being targeted.
