Survey Asking Students Where They’re from Withdrawn After ‘Racism’ Accusations

An ‘expert’ committee advising the British government on immigration has withdrawn a survey asking students where are from and what they think about international students after cries of “racism”.

The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC), which is independent of government, asked students if they were from Britain or overseas, and what impact international students had had on their university experience, ranging from “entirely positive” to “entirely negative” — but academics were outraged the question was being asked at all.

Penn State says wilderness is too risky for outdoors clubs

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A near-century-old outdoor recreation club will now refrain from going outside because it is too dangerous out in the wilderness, according to officials at Penn State University.

The Penn State Outing Club, originally founded in 1920, announced last week that the university will no longer allow the club to organize outdoor, student-led trips starting next semester. The hiking, camping and other outdoors-focused activities the student-led club has long engaged in are too risky, the university’s offices of Student Affairs and Risk Management determined.

Parents to pull kids from public schools to protest ‘graphic, gender-bending’ sex ed

Parents are pulling their children out of public schools for a day to protest sex education that they say has become graphic, hedonistic and ideological under the influence of pro-choice and gay rights groups.

The Sex Ed Sit Out started with parents in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has spread to nearly a dozen other cities in three countries. The April 23 protest is a grass-roots effort spearheaded by mothers who said they are disturbed by the “pornographic” content that has made its way into the classroom.

Government Study: School Is Racist

That headline could go down as the greatest clickbait of all time if it weren’t for the fact that a new report found that—regardless of the racial makeup of the school, the type of punishment, the level of poverty in the school or grade level—black students are much more likely than their white counterparts to be punished in school.

The Government Accountability Office, studying Department of Education civil rights data, found some disturbing trends. To be honest, whenever a government, educational or nonprofit entity studies anything about how America treats black kids, I write “___ found some disturbing trends” before I even look at the results because being a black child in America is one big fucking disturbing trend.

Finally a parent acting like a responsible parent. Allowing children to leave school to further a political agenda is NOT okay. I hope this turns into a class action lawsuit that reaches the Supreme Court. Conservatives need to start fighting back.
