The Bi-Annual "Teachers take charge to save AILING PUBLIC SCHOOLS" Event

LOS ANGELES -- Four years ago, Francis Parkman Middle School was spiraling downward with plummeting enrollment, abysmal test scores and notoriety for unruliness. Then teachers stepped out of the classroom and took charge of the school.

Today, the rechristened Woodland Hills Academy, named for the school's suburban location north of Los Angeles, is run by a teacher-controlled committee where the principal carries the same weight as a teacher and the district has minimal say in operations.

Test scores are up 18 percent and enrollment has spiked more than 30 percent. The model works, teachers say, because everyone from the principal to the janitor is vested in the outcome. "Everybody has a stake," said teacher Bruce Newborn. "We all suffer and we all win."

Latino Kids Now Majority In State's Public Skools

Ay carumba. Latinos now make up a majority of California's public school students, cracking the 50 percent barrier for the first time in the state's history, according to data released Friday by the state Department of Education.

Almost 50.4 percent of the state's students in the 2009-10 school year identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino, up 1.36 percent from the previous year.

In comparison, 27 percent of California's 6.2 million students identified themselves as white, 9 percent as Asian and 7 percent as black. Students calling themselves Filipino, Pacific Islander, Native American or other total almost 7 percent.

While the result was no surprise to educators, experts say the shift underscores the huge impact Latinos already have on California's politics, economy and school system.

SF Chronicle

A Fremont music teacher accused of taking "up-skirt" photos of a woman on an escalator last month at a Seattle airport has been charged with one count of voyeurism.

Prosecutors in King County, Wash., say Christopher T. Wilhite, 33, took several photos of a woman he noticed while passing through a security checkpoint for a flight to Oakland on June 6. Wilhite told investigators he had "a sudden impulse" to snap pictures up the woman's dress as he stood a few steps below her, according to court filings.

Opinion: School Daze at L.A. Schools

By Rabbi Nachum Shifren
June 26, 2010

Rabbi Shifren is a Candidate for California State Senate; Educator, Veteran teacher for 22 years in L.A. Schools

Poor Steve Zimmer, board member of L.A. Unified School District (Jewish Journal, 6/18). How much courage did it take to come up with yet another pathetic whimper about more school funding--at a time of record unemployment, unprecedented tax burdens on Californians, massive foreclosures, and a whopping 50% drop out rate in the District! Hey, this takes guts! (or chutzpah?)

The effrontery of board member Zimmer and his colleagues is beyond embarrassing to those who have been following the abysmal, some say criminal, record of the worst school district in the nation. This time even the voters who are usually unaware of District machinations on our pocketbooks, turned them down in a clear slap in the face of these bureaucrats that could not care a drop for our students.

This district is sitting on a powder keg ready to go off. If a martian were to land at many of the campuses, the interplanetary visitor would correctly assume that the mission statement of our academic genius administrators would be: maximum confusion, minimum effort, near-total apathy and dysfunction.

Sexually disoriented left out of anti-bullying policy

Sissy fighting continuesLaw promotes perv-on-perv violence, allows fags and trannies to continue bullying each other in centuries-old vie for top protected-perv spot, endless debate over gay crap.

Anniston, AL

Under an anti-harassment policy passed by the Anniston Board of Education Wednesday, students are explicitly protected from bullying based on their race, gender, religion or disability.

Sexual orientation? Not so much.

With Wednesday’s unanimous vote, Anniston joined school systems across the state in passing an official policy for dealing with bullying and harassment. The move is required by the Student Harassment Prevention Act, passed by the Alabama Legislature in the wake of a wave of bullying-related suicides across the country.

Shortly after the law was passed, the state released a model anti-harassment policy that has since been adopted almost word-for-word in many school districts. The model policy explicitly bans harassment based on race, disability and religion, but is silent on anti-gay bullying.

Former Garfield High teacher pleads not guilty to sex charge

Desperate.A former Garfield High School teacher pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a charge accusing her of having sex with a 17-year-old student.

The bail for Taryn Fairbanks, 33, was reduced from $50,000 to $25,000 during a brief arraignment in King County Superior Court. She was making arrangements to post the bail and is not expected to be booked into the King County Jail, said Dan Donohoe, spokesman for the King County Prosecutor's Office.

Fairbanks was charged last week with first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor. Fairbanks, previously known as Taryn Stermer, resigned from the Seattle school district less than a month ago and moved back to her native Las Vegas. She appeared in a King County courtroom for the arraignment.

Teacher's brilliant reason for taking students to Cuba before Castro dies and spends an eternity in hell: "I'm a communist"

New York Post

A Manhattan high school history teacher, who resigned under fire after taking students on a spring-break "Club Red" field trip to Cuba three years ago, is a self-proclaimed Communist who tried justifying the jaunt by telling Education officials he needed to see Fidel Castro one more time before the dictator died.

The shocking revelations are highlighted in a report released today by the city’s special investigator for schools. It recommends that Nathan Turner — who organized the April 2007 trip for himself and five students of the selective Beacon School on the Upper East Side — never be allowed to work in city schools again.

Turner, whose class walls were adorned with posters of Castro and Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, resigned in 2008. Besides placing full blame on Turner, 39, for violating federal restrictions for traveling to Cuba, the report also fully exonerates the school’s principal, Ruth Lacey.

Normal? School trains for inevitable school shooting, bomb scare, hostage situation

Around this time of year, teacher training sessions are nothing special. In the past week alone, educators from local districts have taken part in technology, mathematics, and career/technical education workshops. Several others have taken place in the past few weeks, and even more lie ahead.

But the armed intruder training that took place in Perquimans County High School for the first time Thursday was significantly more unsettling than the rest, as school staff and local law enforcement received training on how to handle a school shooting, bomb scare, or hostage situation.

Gathered around a projector screen in the school’s library sat a mix of the district’s principals, counselors, nurses and front desk staff — all present expected to play the most critical disaster response roles, should a Columbine or Virginia Tech scenario play out in Perquimans County.

Ex-Paterson teacher pleads not guilty to sexual assault of 16-year-old student

Dirtbag claims he's innocent and raped the girl not as her teacher, but as a an average pervert you'd find on the internet or alley behind a strip club.

PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS — A former teacher at a Paterson high school accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old female student at his home in Parsippany claims he is innocent, and was not her teacher and had no "supervisory role" over her outside of school, his attorney said today.

Scott Van Hoven, 43, formerly employed at John F. Kennedy High School, was charged Wednesday with sexually assaulting the girl May 19 and May 23 at his apartment.

An affidavit alleges Van Hoven was the girl’s drama class teacher as well as supervisor for the school play, "Little Shop of Horrors," in which she participated April 16 and 17.

Lurking In The Schools: "I was just born this way" teacher, tutor, foreign exchange host, camp counselor shows pattern of abuse that goes back decades

Kevin Ricks: Needs to pay for the bullets used at his execution.The Washington Post -- Sunday, July 25, 2010

Kevin Ricks was a gregarious, well-traveled English teacher at Osbourn High School, a Walt Whitman devotee who was so popular that a photo of him in class was chosen to fill the opening page of the yearbook. A writer and photographer himself, Ricks would walk the halls of the Manassas school with a leather-bound journal of his musings tucked in his bag, next to his laptop computer.

What teachers, parents, students and even his wife didn't know was that his journals contained decades of dark secrets, a running handwritten commentary of Ricks's world of obsession, infatuation, pursuit, sexual abuse and international child exploitation.

They didn't know about his library of homemade pornographic videos and explicit photographs capturing his tequila-soaked sex acts with teenage boys he had handpicked. They didn't know about the makeshift shrine boxes containing mementos of the episodes, including sex toys, soiled tissues and hair trimmings.
Even some of the victims didn't know they were victims.

A four-month Washington Post investigation of Ricks's career as a teacher, tutor, foreign exchange host and camp counselor has revealed a pattern of abuse that dates to at least 1978 and has left a trail of victims spanning the globe. But despite the abuse, Ricks moved from one teaching job to the next over nearly 30 years, navigating the nation's public and private school systems undetected, evading traps designed to catch him.

In some cases, school officials and foreign exchange companies knew of or suspected Ricks's inappropriate behavior and simply let him go, leaving the next employer with no idea what was coming.

Mad TV's Public School House Rock PSA: "Dopin' Up Kids With Behavioral Problems"

Mad TV didn't have to do much research for this sketch, eh? Dysfunction Junction, why do you function? Ritalin, Zoloft, Adderall, Dexedrine, Risperdall, Luvox, Paxil, Methylphenidate - if it works for you, why not take two? What's Risperdall? In case you foolishly thought this was meant to be a parody, think again. This is a PSA thinly veiled as a parody.

"Cuz parents push the pills just to keep ya quiet. They wanna quick fix like a happy meal to make ya feel real so they don't gotta deal. To 'help' your head, they'll hand you a med and send ya to bed. Then when you're in skool you won't act like a fool, just don't overdose or else you'll drool."

There is, however, only one alternative, natural method for curing ADD - one that's free from any harmful medication. It's all in the free brochure, 'You Can Either Calm Down, Or I Can Pop You In The Mouth, Again.'

Educational Toilet: New York public schools top nation in per-student money wasting.

Can you hear that? Yup, it's the continuous sound of more money being flushed away into the black hole of toilets, the govt skool system. Don't count on ever seeing that money again; for the worst investment in human history, there aren't going to be any returns. However, I wouldn't mind getting a refund for all the years of my life ruined and wasted by the govt's system.

USA Today

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York spent $17,173 per student for public education in 2007-08, more than any other state and 67% more than the U.S. average, according to U.S. Census Bureau statistics released Monday.

The $10,259 national average — $6,914 less than New York — was a 6.1% increase over 2006-07, the Census Bureau said. New York's spending went up 7.4% over the two years. New York's per-student spending was highest in 2006-07 too at $15,981 per student, and the national average was $9,666.

In lieu of teaching, teachers learn to identify and correct bullying

The publik skools are doing it backwards, again. Now the teachers are learning when they should be teaching. Evidently, teachers - being as dense as the center of a Red Dwarf - need instruction on identifying bullies in their own classrooms and correcting the bullies' bullying styles. Eventually, they hope to make a leaner, meaner, bullying machiner and use the kid as a teacher's aide.

No, teachers still are still unable to teach readin, ritin and rithmitic.

Chambersburg, PA

It wasn't so long ago that there were two schools of thought on how children dealt with bullies in school.You either avoided them or confronted them at their own game.

Stan Shilling, counseling supervisor for the Chambersburg Area School District, said the scene in the movie "A Christmas Story," where Ralphie fights back against the neighborhood bully, Scott Farkas, would be an accurate assessment.

"That's pretty much the world that existed," Shilling said.

Not so much anymore.

Law enforcement uses school as anti-guerrilla warfare training center; students scared

It's all a part of conditioning children to accept terrorism as a normal part of everyday life, as though this country was Iraq. When they're adults in perpetual adolescence, it'll be easier for them to accept the coming police state.


It was organized chaos at Moline High School Thursday, when area hospitals, EMS and police trained for a school shooting.

For the area emergency workers, the training gave an inside look of what a school shooting might be like. There were more than 60 volunteers acting as panicked parents or as injured students.Fifteen-year-old Lindsey Gidel participated as an injured student. She was given the role of someone knocked unconscious in the chaos.

"I was really scared; I almost started crying because the thought it could actually happen," Gidel said.

Unfortunately shootings do happen, and that's the main reason for the training."School shootings and workplace violence has been occurring everywhere across the country," explains Rock Island County Sergeant Mitch Lee, "That's why we continue to train."Organizers say part of the goal is also to get emergency crews working together. Students were even rushed to local hospitals like they would be in a real situation.
