Defective Bargaining

By Larry Sand In a recent opinion piece in The Epoch Times, veteran writer John Seiler put forth a set of strategies for a Republican to beat California Governor Gavin Newsom in the state’s September 14th recall election.

Masking Students And Unmasking The Radical Agenda

By Larry Sand The new school year is still weeks away in California, but summer break has hardly been a carefree romp on the beach.

The Charming City By The Bay Has Some Serious Edu-Warts That Need To Be Excised

Column By Larry Sand San Francisco is a magical city. My first visit there was in 1969 as a New York city college kid on winter break, and I was enthralled. I was there again in 1996 on my honeymoon, and several times since, and have always found the city to have an amazing vibrancy rivaled […]

Awakening to Woke

COLUMN By Larry Sand Here in California, the woke train rolls merrily along.  If AB 101 passes in its current version, a one-semester high school course in ethnic studies will be mandated starting in the 2029–2030 school year.

Child Abuse in Plain Sight
