Basic Research Journal of Education and Review | All that is Solid  This blogsite has often focused on problems in America’s failing, leftist-liberal public school systems.

Those problems haven’t abated.  In fact, they seem to be getting worse and have even spread to our northern neighbors.

That worsening was illustrated by a Toronto middle school teacher who placed graphic sex brochures with instructions on oral sex designed for gay bathhouses on his classroom walls.  He was “punished” by a temporary suspension–with pay– presumably granting him the right at some time down the line to teach 12 and 13 year olds proper oral sex techniques.

Meanwhile, out in the Golden State, 45 year old computer teacher Richard Styner “accidentally” showed young students a photo of himself in all his naked glory.  Styner wasn’t suspended but San Leandro police arrested him anyway–on charges of possession of child pornography and burglarizing a woman’s home to steal her pictures and her underwear–which must have been accidental as well.

And, at Tippecanoe Elementary School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, “Gender Bender Day” was scheduled for Spirit Week.  Later changed to “Switch It Up Day” after outraged parents complained, it turned out that few students participated although most teachers did, proving once again that kids had more common sense than their adult instructors, and the Tippecanoe administration that permitted the sick exercise in transgenderism.

More outrageous is the case of a 16-year-old Cypress Lake High student in Fort Myers, Florida who was suspended and arrested after saving the life of a fellow student.  Quadryle Davis had pointed a loaded handgun at another sudent on their school bus and the 16 year old hero was awarded an “emergency suspension” because he had been involved in an “incident” with a weapon.

In all fairness, it should be stressed that not all educational numbnuts are liberal-leftists educators themselves.  Liberal leftist “higher-ups” in government, some not directly involved in public education, have been getting into the educational failure act.

Orwellian | azizonomics | Page 2  For example, Big Sis Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security–which recently engaged in extremely suspicious purchases of massive quantities of military hardware, vehicles, and ammunition as if it were prepping for another civil war–has targeted homeschoolers.  (It should be pointed out that DHS involvement in attacks on homeschoolers pre-dates Big Sis, back as far as the G.W. Bush years and before; after all, bored bureaucrats have to keep occupied somehow.)

Along with education vouchers and charter schools, those caring parents who take the time and energy to homeschool their kids, are the last great hopes for American education.  Coincidentally, all three have been labeled “un-American,” and worse, as are virtually any individuals or groups that disagree with President Barack Hussein Obama’s policies.

As Alex Jones’ reported, “In 2011, Pottawatamie County, Iowa and Homeland Security conducted an exercise simulating a school shooting.  The shooter was portrayed as a ‘white teen boy, whose family is involved in anti-illegal immigration rallies’ and supports the Second Amendment.  The father of the shooter was portrayed as a member of an ‘underground white supremacist group.’ ”

The traumatic effects on children of cops and DHS agents running through their school buildings and pointing guns at them was secondary to impressing on kids the evils of white teen offspring of parents who are opposed to illegal immigration and proponents of our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.  (The “white supremacist” fantasy was  undoubtedly thrown into the mix by black supremacists in the Obama administration and the omission of black crime statistics was probably omitted for purposes of political correctness.) 

There is no instant cure for what ails education in North America but a good start would be sending educators to re-education camps where they are forced to study real history, not the twisted pabulum many of them now teach, and reminded that their true mission is to teach and not promote perverted social programs.  Oh, and a few lessons in common sense zero tolerance wouldn’t hurt either.
