Biden Ain’t for the Kids

Biden Ain’t for the Kids

    By Larry Sand On education issues, trouble looms if Biden becomes president. At the risk of stating the obvious, the country’s political future is murky. If Joe Biden withstands the onslaught of ballot fraud challenges and becomes POTUS 46, it’s anyone’s guess as to how he will govern. Or for how long. As […]

Pocket Man – If Joe Biden becomes president, will he go along with the teachers union wish list?

Pocket Man – If Joe Biden becomes president, will he go along with the teachers union wish list?

    By Larry Sand As I wrote last week, charter school students, kids who are in other school choice programs, and taxpayers could be getting the short end of the stick if Joe Biden becomes president on January 20th. To assist Biden with policy decisions, the National Education Association came out with a “policy playbook” […]

Pandemic Pod Pushback

Pandemic Pod Pushback

    By Larry Sand The education establishment is losing customers, and it isn’t happy. Teacher union honchos don’t like homeschoolers for obvious reasons. When kids learn at home, it means less control, money, and power for them. Over the years, the National Education Association has adopted resolutions at its yearly convention which stipulate that […]

Schools for Scandal

Schools for Scandal

  By Larry Sand As shown by the 2019 NAEP, most of our students are being badly shortchanged. The latest bad education news comes to us courtesy of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The most recent exam was administered to high school seniors in early 2019, a full year before the COVID-19 lockdowns. […]

School Reopenings Are Being Determined by Politics and Unions

School Reopenings Are Being Determined by Politics and Unions

    By Larry Sand School lockdowns have little if anything to do with “science.” A working paper released this month by Brown University’s Annenberg Institute for School Reform reveals that local politics – not the severity of COVID-19 – is the most important factor in determining whether k-12 public school districts opened for in-person learning in […]

Bugging the Proselytizers

Bugging the Proselytizers

    By Larry Sand If cops are expected to wear body cameras, teachers’ lessons should be recorded. In Texas, a 9th grade English teacher adorns her virtual classroom with posters professing support for Black Lives Matter and the LGBT lifestyle. In southern California, a teacher regularly tells her students how stupid President Trump is, and that conservatives are […]

“Wokefornia”

“Wokefornia”

    By Larry Sand California’s ethnic-studies mandate for K‒12ers is dead for now, but cultural Marxism is flourishing. It’s not surprising that an effort is underway to recall California governor Gavin Newsom, who administers a state with record homelessness, rising crime, and exploding pension debt. He rules imperiously, mandating arbitrary pandemic-related restrictions. In September, Newsom […]

Commentary | Creative Instruction and Its Enemies

Commentary | Creative Instruction and Its Enemies

    By Larry Sand Parents battle the education monolith in the COVID-19 shutdown wars.  The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the teachers unions and others in the education establishment as a Hydra that will go to great lengths to insure that in-person learning is denied throughout the country. In Boston, the teachers union is suing the […]

Indoctrifornia

Indoctrifornia

    By Larry Sand While California’s ethnic studies mandate for k-12ers is dead for now, there is still much in the works to be concerned about. California governor Gavin Newsom is a force of nature. He leads a state which has record homelessness, rising crime and exploding pension debt. But wait, there is so […]

If Everyone Is Behind, Then No One Is Behind

If Everyone Is Behind, Then No One Is Behind

    By Larry Sand COVID-19 has further exposed the teachers unions’ disregard for children. In early September, researchers Corey DeAngelis and Christos Makridis released the results of a study they spearheaded, which found that “school districts in places with stronger teachers’ unions are much less likely to offer full-time, in-person instruction this fall.” The authors stress […]
