    Tennessee teacher runs away with teen student

    • Tad Cummins, 50, vanished with his 15-year-old student Elizabeth Thomas from Tennessee on March 13
    • Authorities are asking pharmacy staff to be on the look out for the former teacher given he is due for a refill on blood pressure medication
    • Cummins and Thomas were last spotted at a Oklahoma Walmart on March 15
    • The teacher is wanted by authorities on charges of aggravated kidnapping and sexual contact with a minor
    • Cummins bought women's hair dye at a Walmart they day before they vanished
    • The pair had been seen kissing weeks earlier at the high school on January 23

    The Tennessee teacher who disappeared with a 15-year-old female student a month ago is believed to be running out of his blood pressure medication.

    Authorities are asking pharmacy staff to be on the look out for Tad Cummins, 50, and Elizabeth Thomas after the teacher allegedly abducted the girl back on March 13.

    Surveillance footage from a Walmart in Oklahoma two days after they vanished is the last confirmed sighting of the pair and authorities have not yet been able to located them despite a nationwide manhunt.

    Given Cummins has been on the run for 30 days now, authorities say he should be due for a refill on medication to control his blood pressure.

    It emerged this week that Cummins had left a note for his wife Jill Cummins before he vanished with the teenager.

    While it isn't clear what the note said, investigators have revealed they think it was a diversion to throw them off the trail.

    Mrs Cummins has since filed for divorce.

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued an Amber Alert for Elizabeth when she first disappeared.

    Cummins is wanted by authorities on charges of aggravated kidnapping and sexual contact with a minor.

    Days earlier, he took out a $4,500 loan and was also seen filling up his silver Nissan Rogue with gas on the day of their disappearance.

    Police believe Cummins, who Elizabeth has known for more than two years, brainwashed her into abandoning her family. They have not confirmed whether she went willingly with him on March 13.

    Cummins was suspended from his teaching job at the time they disappeared. Another student claimed to have seen the pair kissing in Cummins' classroom back on January 23.

    He was not officially fired by the school district until he disappeared with the girl on March 13.

    Muslim Students Called Terrorists in School

    by Sarah A. Harvard - June 14, 2017

    Since President Donald Trump was elected, civil rights groups have noticed an uptick in schoolchildren quoting the president's own words to bully their peers.

    Forty-two percent of Muslim families reported their children had experiences with anti-Muslim bullying
    , according to a 2017 study from the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding. One in four of these reported incidents came from teachers or other school officials.

    Mic interviewed four Muslim schoolchildren in New York to hear about their experiences in the classroom: Moheeb, 11, Shahrazad, 8, Enan, 10, and Saif, 11. These Muslim kids don't know much about Trump other than the fact he's the president of the United States and wants to ban Muslims. This doesn't bode well for Shahrazad and her family in war-torn Yemen.

    "I have family in Yemen," Shahrazad said. "[They] can't come if Donald Trump makes another ban. When I pray, I ask God to help America and Yemen."

    Trump and members of his administration have often stated that
    "Islam hates us" and that Muslims have a "predisposition" to terrorism. In turn, hate crimes and Islamophobic speech has exponentially increased since Trump began his presidential campaign. Islamophobia also spiked immediately after the Sept. 11 attacks. But these children have no recollection of the tragedy that unfolded in 2001. They weren't even born yet.

    Enan and Shahrazad, for example, don't think of 9/11 other than a date that comes between Sept. 10 and Sept. 12. "I don't know what 9/11 is," Enan said.

    But despite not knowing who Osama bin Laden was or having any relations to al-Qaeda, they are still suffering from the anti-Muslim backlash that erupted about 15 years ago.

    Moheeb is fed up with the bullying from his classmates and the lack of response from his educators. He recounted when two of his classmates, on different occasions, called him a terrorist. In one incident, Moheeb said he told two of his principals and that they didn't really take any action.

    In another incident, Moheeb said he told his teacher that a female classmate called him a terrorist. The teacher then talked to the female classmate, who is of Puerto Rican descent and who Moheeb said he mistakenly called "Mexican," about the name-calling. Then, according to Moheeb, the teacher only sent him to the principal's office.

    Now, Moheeb said, he ignores the bullying.

    "I feel mad, because I don't think [students and teachers] understand how I feel," Moheeb said. "I sometimes ignore [the bullying]. If I cry about it, they'll do [it] more."


    Kids Are Quoting Trump To Bully Their Classmates And Teachers Don't Know What To Do About It

    BuzzFeed News reviewed more than 50 reports of school bullying since the election and found that kids nationwide are using Trump's words to taunt their classmates. If the president can say those things, why can't they?

    By Albert Samaha, Mike Hayes, Talal Ansar - June 6, 2017

    Donald Trump's campaign and election have added an alarming twist to school bullying, with white students using the president's words and slogans to bully Latino, Middle Eastern, black, Asian, and Jewish classmates. In the first comprehensive review of post-election bullying, BuzzFeed News has confirmed more than 50 incidents, across 26 states, in which a K-12 student invoked Trump's name or message in an apparent effort to harass a classmate during the past school year.

    In the parking lot of a high school in Shakopee, Minnesota, boys in Donald Trump shirts gathered around a black teenage girl and sang a portion of "The Star-Spangled Banner," replacing the closing line with "and the home of the slaves." On a playground at an elementary school in Albuquerque, New Mexico, third-graders surrounded a boy and chanted "Trump! Trump! Trump!"

    On a school bus in San Antonio, Texas, a white eighth-grader said to a Filipino classmate, "You are going to be deported." In a classroom in Brea, California, a white eighth-grader told a black classmate, "Now that Trump won, you're going to have to go back to Africa, where you belong." In the hallway of a high school in San Mateo County, California, a white student told two biracial girls to "go back home to whatever country you're from." In Louisville, Kentucky, a third-grade boy chased a Latina girl around the classroom shouting "Build the wall!" In a stadium parking lot in Jacksonville, Florida, after a high school football game, white students chanted at black students from the opposing school: "Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!"

    The first school year of the Donald Trump presidency left educators struggling to navigate a climate where misogyny, religious intolerance, name-calling, and racial exclusion have become part of mainstream political speech.

    These budding political beliefs among some students carry consequences beyond the schoolyard. Today's high schoolers will be eligible to vote in 2020, and today's fifth-graders will be eligible to vote in 2024. But even if the wave of Trump-related bullying doesn't reflect some widespread political awakening among young people, it indicates a more troubling reality: the extent to which racial and religious intolerance has shaped how kids talk, joke, and bully.

    "It's unacceptable and it reflects a wider climate of hate that we're seeing," Antonio Lopez, an assistant school superintendent in Portland, Oregon, told BuzzFeed News. Lopez in March announced a plan to personally track racist bullying in his district, citing the importance of snubbing out hateful speech as early as possible.

    Lopez said the hate incidents in his district were on his mind when he heard that white supremacist Jeremy Joseph Christian had stabbed three people, two of them fatally, on a Portland train after they intervened to stop his racist rant against two teenage girls, one of them a Muslim wearing a headscarf.

    While there are no quantitative studies examining the election's impact on school bullying, BuzzFeed News conducted the first large-scale nationwide analysis of bullying incidents linked to Trump, reviewing hundreds of reports submitted to the Documenting Hate project, a database of tips about hate crimes and bias incidents set up by ProPublica and shared with other news organizations.

    BuzzFeed News reviewed every alleged incident, from early October to late May. The reports spanned 149 schools. Of those, BuzzFeed News was able to follow up on 54 cases through interviews, public statements from school officials, and local news reports. (BuzzFeed News has not heard back from the people who filed the other 95 tips.)

    For teachers and principals, the first school year of the Trump presidency brought a new test.

    "This is my 21st year in education and I've never seen a situation like this before," said Brent Emmons, principal of Hood River Middle School in Oregon. "It's a delicate tightrope to walk. It's not my role to tell people how to think about political policies, but it is my role to make sure every kid feels safe at the school."

    At a time of thick political and racial tensions, and of heightened worries among people of color, what is a teacher to say when a student asks: Why can the president say it but I can't?


    Teachers, like everybody else in the United States, realized at some point in 2016 that this election was very different.

    Over her 10 years as a middle school English teacher in Spokane Valley, Washington, Amanda Mead liked to shift her curriculum based on current events. She assigned readings from the civil rights era when protests roiled Ferguson in 2014. In 2012 and 2008, her classroom discussions often turned to the presidential election.

    "We'd talk about Bush, Obama, McCain, et cetera, and the kids would just nod their heads," Mead said. "But as the campaign heated up last year, I started to notice a pretty significant change among my kids. They would say things that I have never heard kids in my school district say. Far more vitriolic."

    She caught a group of white students following a Latino student in the hallway, taunting him with chants of "the wall's coming!" and "Trump! Trump! Trump!" She overheard kids repeating insults Trump had aimed at Hillary Clinton.

    For the kids, there was no escaping Trump. His speeches played on television nearly every night. Every adult seemed to be talking about him - at dinner tables, on social media. He was the central figure of the cultural moment, and he talked like a playground bully.

    "It's a daily occurrence that they hear this language," said Dorothy Espelage, an education psychology professor at the University of Florida who has researched school bullying. "They're just parroting back what they hear" - from parents, from Trump, from raucous crowds on televised campaign rallies.

    Emmons, the middle school principal in Oregon, didn't realize how much kids had latched on to Trump's message until dozens of his students chanted "Build that wall!" during a Halloween assembly after two teachers performing in a skit entered the stage wearing masks of Trump and Clinton. A third of the school's students are Latino.

    "That was the first time that I knew it was going to be a problem at my school," Emmons said. "Many of our students felt unsafe and disrespected. These words are hateful and scary for them."

    When Emmons talked to some of the kids who had chanted, he said he found that "some students had no idea what it meant." They were simply joining in with the mob. "It's middle school; it's what you do because you're right next to them," Emmons said. "I really don't believe that 99% of the kids who were chanting it had any malice or hate in their hearts." Kids, like the president, tend to enjoy a good troll.

    Recalling an incident he witnessed in which some white students harassed minority students with the usual lines about walls and deportation, Dylan Henderson, a high school sophomore in Atlanta, said, "Maybe a few of them truly were passionate about those beliefs, but the others seemed to just be doing it to incite a response, to see what will happen."

    To Emmons and other educators, activities and discussions that once seemed innocently enriching had suddenly become fraught. Teachers grappled with how to talk to students about the election - or whether to talk about it at all. One fifth-grade teacher in North Carolina, who requested anonymity, said her school told teachers to avoid discussion about the candidates and focus on the political process when talking about the election. "I don't think anyone has known how to handle it or approach it," the teacher said.

    Parents were similarly caught off guard by the racist bullying, which many had not encountered.

    A week before the election, students at a high school in Florien, Louisiana, held a mock election in the lunchroom. Nearly all of the 200 or so students voted for Trump. When the vote count was read out, some students began asking who had voted for Clinton. One boy, a Latino 10th-grader, raised his hand. "Go back home!" somebody shouted. "Do you have your working papers?" somebody else said. A "build a wall!" chant broke out. "He didn't want to go back to school," said the boy's mother, who requested anonymity. "He said he didn't feel safe." Having lived in the small town all his life, the boy had gone to school with the same classmates since kindergarten. Most of them are white, yet "this was the first time he felt his race was an issue," his mother said. "I had to explain to him that this is how some people see the world."

    In suburban Dallas, one mother said her sixth-grade son came home from school on Election Day and told her that some classmates had taunted him and two friends on the playground that morning: "Heil Hitlary," one boy said; another said, "One million of your lives is worth less than 30,000 deleted emails." After the boy recalled the incident, he asked his mother, "How did they know we're Jewish?"

    The bullying in schools is part of a larger wave of hate speech, vandalism, and violence that has occurred across the country within the past year. In the four months following the election, Jewish cemeteries were defaced in at least three states, and at least three mosques were set on fire. In Kansas and Washington, white men shot brown men because they thought they were Muslim, killing one and wounding two more. In New York City, a white man who fatally stabbed a black man said he was on a mission to kill many more. A BuzzFeed News investigation earlier this year tallied at least 18 hate crimes and bias incidents from November to March in Oregon alone.

    With so many recent examples of racist beliefs leading to violence, the verbal abuse in schools stands out not just as an example of kids testing boundaries, but as a possible window into a disturbing future.

    On Election Day in Silverton, Oregon, around three dozen students gathered in their high school's parking lot, holding Trump signs and waving American flags. When Latino students passed by, teens in the crowd shouted "Pack your bags, you're leaving tomorrow!" and "Tell your family goodbye!"

    At a Philadelphia prep school, four white students posed for a photo while holding pictures of the Confederate flag and Donald Trump. In the weeks after the election, pro-Trump messages, alongside racist pejoratives and symbols, were spray-painted on walls at schools in Newtown, Pennsylvania; Suwanee, Georgia; and Brookline, Massachusetts.

    In Millersburg, Pennsylvania, a Latina high school student broke into tears when more than 30 classmates chanted "Trump!" at her. In York County, Pennsylvania, a group of high school students holding Trump signs marched through the halls; one shouted "white power." In Coppell, Texas, a Latino high school student found on his desk a goodbye card with a note suggesting he would be deported and ending, "Make America Great Again! Adios!"

    On a school bus in a suburb of St. Louis, a white teen said to a black teen, "Are you ready to get back on the boat now that Trump is president?" In a fifth-grade classroom in Greensboro, North Carolina, a Latino boy cried after another student told him, "Donald Trump wants to send you guys away. He doesn't want you here." At a high school volleyball game in Archer City, Texas, and at high school basketball games in Jefferson Township, New Jersey, and San Diego, white students chanted "Build the wall" at Latino students on the other team. In Nebraska, at baseball games against Schuyler High School, which is 80% Latino, opposing students brought Trump signs and shouted taunts about deportation and building a wall.

    The known incidents of Trump-related school harassment form an incomplete list. Missing are the cases that adults never hear about, the ones lost to the closed ecosystem of adolescent social life.

    One Los Angeles County seventh-grader begged his mom not to tell the principal about the anti-Semitic harassment he was getting from a Trump supporter in his class. The bully was a popular kid. "My son didn't want to deal with the social consequences," his mother said. "He was really adamant that we didn't out this boy."

    Another mother, from the San Francisco Bay Area, learned of a post-election bullying incident when her teenage daughter mentioned it in passing. "She didn't want to talk about it," the mother said. "She didn't want to make a big deal. I was upset. I wanted to go to the principal. But she didn't want that." The girl, a 10th-grader, was new at her school and feared making trouble.

    When reports did make it up the chain, many principals and superintendents, including in Archer City and Philadelphia, responded swiftly, with public statements or district-wide emails condemning the bullying - stands that drew praise from parents. In Warrensburg, Missouri, after a white student held a Donald Trump sign at a high school basketball game against a team whose players were mostly black, the superintendent issued an apology, calling the act "inappropriate and insensitive toward our opponents." The school board in Highland Park, Texas, formed a committee to look into the reports of racist harassment after the election. In San Diego County, the school board passed a resolution vowing to maintain a safe climate for students of all races. In a few cases, such as in Silverton, Oregon, and Millersburg, Pennsylvania, students were suspended.

    Often, kids themselves have made efforts to counter hate incidents at their schools. High schoolers in Atlanta started a group aimed at promoting tolerance. Two middle schoolers in Oregon put together a video showing dozens of classmates stating what they "believe in" - "respect" and "equal rights" were among the more popular lines. In New Albany, Ohio, students took to social media to pressure administrators to remove graffiti of racist words and Trump's name at their high school. When the Latino boy from Florien, Louisiana, returned to school the day after the mock election, "his friends banded around him and the other children who were bullied," his mother said.

    But, at a time when the line between political speech and racist hate seems increasingly faint, responses to bullying sometimes brought a backlash.

    After a white third-grade boy chanted "build the wall" at a Latina classmate at a Louisville elementary school, the teacher and principal gathered the class and told them the boy's actions had been racist. Not everybody was pleased with this lecture. "Parents got mad that the school said it was racist," said the mother of another boy in the class.

    Indeed, as some educators learned this past school year, "build the wall" is not an easy phrase to police. It is, after all, a campaign slogan of a major party candidate, chanted by millions of Americans at rallies across the country, and a primary policy objective of the person elected president. How does a teacher explain to a student why the phrase is unacceptable in the classroom without being accused of political partisanship?

    After the chant at the Hood River Middle School Halloween assembly, Principal Emmons put it this way in a letter to students: "This statement makes many of your fellow students feel badly because it has been used by politicians to threaten deportation of immigrants and threaten Americans of Mexican heritage. Many students at our school are from families of recent immigrants and these words are hurtful and scary for them."

    He called a school-wide assembly to address the incident, ordered a school-wide writing assignment about it, and organized a festival on campus that showcased games and food from around the world.

    Several parents complained that the school's response was heavy-handed. They accused the principal of suppressing political speech.
    Recalling those meetings, Emmons said, "We discussed whether a public school has the ability to limit speech that's used in the national arena. Their viewpoint was: If you thought this way, it didn't make you a bad person; that it was just about improved border security."

    The same argument emerged in May when a high school in North Carolina confiscated yearbooks after administrators discovered that one student's senior quote was "Build that wall." A message on the district's Facebook page called the quote "inappropriate." Hundreds of people left comments, mostly criticizing the decision:

    "This is a violation of the student's rights!!!"
    "What is so 'racist' about the quote?"
    "Quoting the POTUS is never inappropriate!"

    For some families, the end of the school year brings hard choices. One mother from a suburb outside Richmond, Virginia, said that she and her husband, both US citizens born in Mexico, sent their son and daughter to a local Catholic school "thinking we'll have the same values as the families there." Things were smooth for years, until November, when their son was 12 and their daughter 14. "After Trump won, we tried to tell our kids not to worry, but then we started hearing a lot of hate," she said. A classmate at the school, which is predominantly white, called her son a "Mexican churro." When her son scored a goal at a soccer game at recess, another classmate said, "Don't worry, he's going to be deported pretty soon." There were frequent "build the wall" jokes. She informed the principal and the parish priest, she said, but they took no action. When she went to the mother of one of the boys who had targeted her son, the woman defended the comments, saying that the boy was merely "expressing his political point of view." The mother and father are now considering transferring their kids to a public school.

    High School Journalists Land a Scoop, and the Principal Resigns


    Four days after students at a high school newspaper in Kansas published an article that questioned the credentials of a recently hired principal, she resigned.

    The episode, which unfolded at Pittsburg High School in Pittsburg, Kan., about 125 miles south of Kansas City, garnered news coverage and won praise from journalism organizations for investigative reporting by student journalists.

    The story began to germinate on March 6, when the Pittsburg Community Schools announced it had hired Amy Robertson as the high school principal.

    In a statement, it said her “diverse and extensive experience impressed district staff and leadership and repeatedly propelled her to the top” of the list of candidates. She had “decades of experience in education” and was the chief executive of a consulting firm that advised companies on education, the statement said.

    Maddie Baden, a 17-year-old junior and a staff member of the student-run newspaper The Booster Redux, set out to write a profile. Emily Smith, a teacher and adviser to The Redux, said on Wednesday that she had not expected the reporting to lead to questions about Ms. Robertston’s credentials.

    “We’re Midwesterners,” she said. “As soon as somebody puts something on paper, we think they’re honest about what they’re saying.”

    But in multiple interviews over several days, Ms. Robertson provided details of her background that did not hold up, Ms. Smith said.

    Then Ms. Robertson became increasingly evasive.

    “She was asked direct questions,” Ms. Smith said. “She couldn’t give direct answers.”

    Ms. Smith coached the students to press for clearer responses, pushing them to be more assertive with an adult in authority than they were accustomed.

    The students questioned the legitimacy of Corllins University, an institution where Ms. Robertson said she got her master’s and doctorate degrees. It lists no physical address on its website and has been the subject of consumer complaints and warnings about its lack of accreditation. Her profile on LinkedIn, the professional networking site, did not identify where she had earned her master’s degree and Ph.D., listing only “N/A.”

    Smaller details also aroused the students’ curiosity. For instance, Ms. Robertson said she had earned a bachelor’s of fine arts degree from the University of Tulsa, but when the students checked, they learned it does not confer that kind of degree, Ms. Smith said.

    The students and Ms. Smith met with the school superintendent, Destry Brown, about their concerns, and he was “supportive and open,” she said. They kept reporting and “continued to write up to five minutes before it went to print,” she said.

    On Friday, The Redux, a monthly broadsheet published 10 times a year, hit the newsstands with a front-page story, headlined “District Hires New Principal” and with the subheading, “Background called into question after discrepancies arise.”

    On Tuesday night, the board of education met and announced that Ms. Robertson had resigned. “In light of the issues that arose” she felt it was in the district’s best interest, a board statement said.

    Ms. Robertson, who was to assume the $93,000-a-year position starting on July 1, could not be immediately reached for comment on Wednesday.

    Ms. Robertson, who lived in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, was the principal of the Dubai American Scientific School, and recently had her license temporarily suspended by education authorities there
    , The Gulf News reported. Immigration issues prevented her from getting needed permits, The News reported.

    Mr. Brown praised the students for their persistence but acknowledged he felt a twinge of disappointment about how it unfolded. He said Ms. Robertson’s hiring was contingent on passing a background check and producing needed documentation. He said the details would have come out eventually, but the students’ work sped thing up.

    “I believe strongly in our kids questioning things and not believing things just because an adult told them,” he said. “I have a little bit of heartburn over the whole article. I wasn’t going to stop that because I believe in that whole First Amendment thing.”

    Journalism groups were also full of praise.

    Tom Rosenstiel, executive director of the American Press Institute, a journalism research and training group, said his organization has seen outstanding work from college students working with professional journalists on investigations but said that what the high school students did “really stands out.”

    At a time of shrinking resources in newsrooms, students are helping to fill gaps in coverage, he said, adding, “There’s a sense that significant journalistic investigations can come from anywhere now.”

    Student journalists are routinely underestimated by those in positions of authority
    , Frank LoMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center, said on Wednesday. The students consulted with him about their reporting on the article.

    The article might never have appeared had it not been for the Kansas Student Publications Act, which grants students independent control over their editorial content, including material that might paint a school in an unflattering light, he said. A 1988 Supreme Court ruling gave administrators the authority to censor the content of student journalists.

    Ten states, including Kansas, passed laws giving students independent control
    , although administrators can still remove material that is obscene, defamatory or poses a danger to the school. Similar bills are pending in nine other states, Mr. LoMonte said.

    “If that same situation happened in Texas, New York or Florida, that story would not have seen the light of day,”
    he said.

    He credited school administrators for taking a hands-off approach and letting the students pursue the reporting.

    “I hope it really emboldens young people to take on substantive news stories even if they are afraid of administrative censorship,” he said. “This story proves you can make positive changes in your community through journalism.”



    This what these people do. They either can't get hired (or got fired) some crime they did or lack of education and experience in their western country and so they go in the East and lie to get a lucrative high position. After working there for a few years and earning a lot money they come back to their country with fake credentials to do the same.

    She is not the first unqualified principal in the west to get caught in this deceit. In 2012, a principal in Melbourne Australia was fired from a prestigious school after making up false previous experiences. He was caught after he couldn't perform the duties of a principal, which led to a thorough look at his previous "principal" positions (that he never had).

    Daniel Haqiqatjou – Missionaries in Western Schools

    "If I told you that Christian missionaries were going to your child's school and aggressively proselytizing to them and pressuring them to leave Islam and become Christians, wouldn't you be alarmed? Wouldn't you be angry and concerned?

    What if I told you these missionaries weren't at your child's school one day but were there every single day, just constantly pressuring your kid to accept Christianity and leave his Islamic faith behind. Would you keep your child at that school?

    The reality is, virtually all schools in the Western world (and many in the Muslim world as well) are indoctrinating your children, but the religion being imposed is not Christianity. It is secular liberal materialism.

    If you have ever wondered why our youth are leaving Islam in droves, there is a clear reason for it. It's not some freak phenomenon that no one can control. It has a clear cause. We have to do something, anything, to protect our kids and counteract any damage that has already been done."

    Cambridge headteacher guilty of trying to meet teenage boy he groomed

    Parents in shock after Glyn Knowles, who was acting head of private Cambridge International School, was arrested in Bishop's Stortford while trying to meet the 'teenage boy'

    • 18 JUL 2017

    A Cambridge headteacher who was a child protection officer for his school has pleaded guilty to grooming a young boy and attempting to meet him - but was caught by police.

    Glyn Knowles, who was acting head of private Cambridge International School
    which has campuses in Cherry Hinton, Abington and in Bateman Street, Cambridge, has been sacked immediately and the school has broken the “incredibly shocking news” to parents.

    Knowles’ victim had no connection to the school.

    The 50-year-old of High Street, Puckeridge, Hertfordshire, appeared before Hatfield Remand Court, based at Hatfield Police Station, on Monday, July 17 where he pleaded guilty to attempting to meet a boy under 16 years of age following grooming (section 15 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003).

    Police were called to Bishop’s Stortford at 2.30pm on July 14 to reports a man was attempting to meet a person he believed to be a teenage boy.

    Knowles was stopped in a vehicle on The Causeway and arrested.

    Parents have reacted with shock.

    One parent, who asked not to be named, said: “It needs to be out there because other people need to know about this guy.

    “It’s completely shocking news and I just want everybody to know about it. The most bizarre thing is that he’s the child protection officer for the school.”

    Cambridge International School is for children aged 3-16 and students come from 32 countries and speak 27 different languages. [and people want to send their kids to these so called "elite" western schools, leaving them at the mercy of these pedos]

    In a letter to parents, Nick Rugg, of the International School Partnership which manages the school, said: “I am writing to you further to the release of information regarding Mr Glyn Knowles which has come to our attention over the weekend.

    “Based on this information, I wanted to get in touch to let you know that, with immediate effect, Mr Knowles has been dismissed from Cambridge International School.

    "Mr Knowles has pleaded guilty to a charge of attempting to meet a boy under the age of 16 years of age following grooming (section 15 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003). I can confirm there is no link to any CIS student.

    “The safeguarding and well-being of children at CIS is of paramount importance to the school and the International Schools Partnership and all our staff are vetted through the Disclosure and Barring Service as per the school’s safeguarding policy.

    Transgender reveal in kindergarten class leaves parents feeling "betrayed"

    The Rocklin Academy school board is facing tough questions from parents concerned over a controversial incident involving transgender discussions inside a kindergarten class, CBS Sacramento reports.

    "These parents feel betrayed by the school district that they were not notified,
    " said Karen England with the Capitol Resource Institute.

    The incident happened earlier this summer during the last few days of the academic school year.

    At Monday night's board meeting, the teacher at the center of the controversy spoke out. With emotions high, she addressed a packed house.

    "I'm so proud of my students, it was never my intent to harm any students but to help them through a difficult situation," she said.

    The teacher defended her decision to read two children's books about transgenderism
    including one titled "I am Jazz." She says the books were given to her by a transgender child going through a transition.

    "The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl," said England.

    Parents say besides the books, the transgender student at some point during class also changed clothes and was revealed as her true gender.

    And many parents say they feel betrayed and blindsided.

    "I want her to hear from me as a parent what her gender identity means to her and our family, not from a book that may be controversial," a parent said.

    "My daughter came home crying and shaking so afraid she could turn into a boy,"
    another parent said.

    The issue was not on the agenda, so parents spoke out during public comment.

    "It's really about the parents being informed and involved and giving us the choice and rights of what's being introduced to our kids, and at what age
    ," said parent Chelsea McQuistan.

    Many teachers also spoke out in support of what transpired inside the classroom. They spoke about the importance of teaching students about diversity and having healthy dialogues.

    One parent said the impact on her son was extremely positive.

    "It was so precious to see that he had absolutely no prejudice in his body. My child just went in there and listened to the story, and didn't relate it to anything malicious, or didn't question his own body," she said.

    "When we head in the direction of banned books or book lists, or selective literature – that should only be read inside or outside the classroom, I think that's a very dangerous direction to go," said 7th grade teacher Kelly Bryson.

    The district says the books were age-appropriate and fell within their literature selection policy.

    Unlike sex education, the topics of gender identity don't require prior parental notice.

    In a statement during the board meeting, the district said: "As indicated by Superintendent Robin Stout in a communication last week, staff will be engaging parents and teachers in discussions about how materials outside our curriculum will be addressed in the future."

    The large discussion has compelled the board to put the item on the next month's agenda.



    This is the education system of today where the teachers can teach whatever they want to your kids with other teachers defending their own as well as board policies saying it's 'ok' and parents don't have to be informed. Young fragile kids are left in their hands to damage and brain wash as they please.

    Islamophobic Bullying in Our Schools

    “You boys were so much fun on the 8th grade trip! Thanks for not bombing anything while we were there!” read the yearbook inscription penned by the middle school teacher.

    The eighth grade yearbook was littered with similar remarks by classmates linking Omar to a “bomb.”

    “To my bomb man!” read one note. “Come wire my bomb,” read another.

    “What is this?” asked Omar’s mother incredulously. He had handed the yearbook over to her moments earlier when he arrived home that afternoon.

    Omar answered quietly, “I know, Mom, I know.” He stared down at the kitchen floor. His eyes could not meet his mother’s but he began to tell her what had happened just one month earlier.

    In May 2009, Omar joined his classmates on a school trip to Washington, D.C. As they toured the Washington Monument, visited area museums and passed by the White House, the kids repeatedly told Omar they hoped he wouldn’t “bomb” any of the sites. A teacher chaperoned the children, heard the comments and responded by doing... well, nothing, except leave a denigrating remark in Omar’s yearbook a month later.

    It was clear to Omar’s mother that her American born and raised son was harassed because of his Muslim faith and Arab ancestry.

    Unfortunately, this was not the first bias-based bullying incident involving Omar that school year. Only several months earlier a peer was intimidating Omar, calling him a “terrorist,” during an elective trade course. Omar finally told his mother about the bullying when his report card indicated that he was failing that same class, while acing the others where he was not subjected to such humiliating treatment.

    Omar’s mother had addressed the bullying with the school Vice-Principal immediately afterwards.

    But, when she spoke to her son’s school Principal regarding the D.C. trip and subsequent offensive yearbook comments (by a school teacher), the Principal was shocked to learn that Omar had been a prior victim of bullying earlier in the academic year. He had no knowledge of that incident in his school.

    While the Principal assured her that he would take proper action against the offending teacher, nothing actually happened. The teacher denied hearing the bomb-related comments during the field trip to D.C. and excused her yearbook note as a “joke.”

    Omar’s incensed mother took her case to the school Superintendent who in turn suggested scheduling a cultural sensitivity training about Arabs and Muslims for faculty.

    That never came to pass, however.

    In a written complaint Omar’s mother filed with a state government agency (with jurisdiction over such bias-based bullying incidents as the one involving her son) she observed:

    “[O]ne day, there will be a child who is pushed beyond their limits, as we have seen in tragic events throughout the country, like Columbine and suicides of children being picked on for no other reason than being “different.”
    What will we do then?
    Must we wait for tragedy to create a safer and more open society for our community?”
    By now Omar was a freshman in the public high school where the bullying continued, unabated.

    In school, Omar was frequently referred to as “faggot.”

    Omar never told his parents.

    The verbal harassment culminated into physical “touching.”

    A male student rubbed Omar’s shoulder while calling him “faggot.”

    Still, Omar said and did nothing seeming paralyzed by his fear and shame.

    Then, during a fire drill at school a group of boys yelled out to Omar, “Call off your tribe so we can go back into school!”

    That was it.

    Omar told his parents what was happening. He explained to his mother that he tried to keep the bullying a secret because he did not want to “hurt or upset” them.

    Omar’s mother complained to the Principal, Superintendent and state agency... again.

    This time, the high school held a cultural sensitivity training focusing on American Arabs and Muslims and geared towards faculty members, only.

    Some mistakenly believe that bullying is a rite of passage which children must endure. It is worth noting the American Medical Association, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identify school bullying as a “public health problem.”

    In fact, bullying has been recognized as a form of child abuse when perpetrated by other children. Studies have shown that victims of bullying may suffer school phobia, increased truancy and reduced concentration and classroom achievement. Bullying victims may also suffer sleep disturbances, bedwetting, abdominal pain, high levels of anxiety and depression, loneliness, low self-esteem and heightened fear for personal safety.

    While anti-bullying legislation plays a critical role in protecting bullying victims, proper implementation and enforcement of those laws is key. Case in point: over 45 states have such legislation in effect (including Omar’s home state) yet bullying — and bias-based bullying — persists in epidemic proportions.

    And, what happens when a disappointing report card or offensive inscriptions in a child’s yearbook does not tip off a parent that his or her child is a target of such bullying conduct? Many children refrain from sharing such details with family members sometimes out of a sense of shame and embarrassment but often because they are attempting to shield parents from being hurt or upset, as we saw in Omar’s case above.

    Preventative measures geared at faculty, students and administrators are necessary to stop bullying from occurring in the first instance. Indeed, evidence suggests that bullying behavior can be significantly reduced through prevention curricula.

    According to a new report published by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU) titled, “Global Battleground or School Playground: The Bullying of America’s Muslim Children,” bias-based bullying against American Muslim children (or those perceived to be Muslim) is on the rise and such school bullying is largely attributed to cultural and religious misunderstanding.

    The report finds that a primary factor underlying the persistent harassment, ridicule and discrimination against American Muslim children is the American mainstream’s general misperception of Islam and Muslims.

    The ISPU paper calls for intensive and pervasive efforts to educate American society about Islam and Muslims. It suggests that such cultural information should be provided to libraries, knowledge bases, teachers and school administrators.

    Such facts and figures about Muslims and Islam — compiled with the assistance of diverse community groups and advocates — should also be featured in educational materials and resources, school curricula, popular Internet sites, television and films.

    Not surprisingly the report identifies the media as a problem source for stereotyped images of Muslims as terrorists and the outside group in the “us” versus “them” dichotomy.

    Perhaps it is time for “Hollywood” to consider positive associations for the Muslims it portrays on the big screen and in our family rooms. American Muslims are doctors, lawyers, engineers, make-up artists, photographers, engineers, information technology specialists, law enforcement agents, teachers, professors, bankers, community advocates, humanitarians, etc. — isn’t it time we portray them that way?

    Children’s programming can also play a critical role in addressing this issue.

    Note the influence of Sesame Street, for instance: a 1996 survey found that 95 percent of all American preschoolers had watched Sesame Street by the time they were three. More recently, in 2008, an estimated 77 million Americans had watched the program as kids.

    In my view, Sesame Street should feature more American Muslim, Arab American and South Asian celebrities, children and characters in its regular programing.

    The children’s show has made great strides in promoting diversity and multiculturalism and recently introduced its first South Asian character to the regular cast. To further promote increased diversity, it could throw a party with authentic Middle Eastern food and music for its American viewing audience, for example.

    Musicians could play the tabla — an Arabic percussion instrument which produces a great beat — while guests enjoy pita chips and hummus. Mangos, a popular fruit in the Arab and Muslim world, could also make an appearance where celebrating children learn how to count all the mangos.

    And, during ‘The Word on the Street’ segment, Murray could imaginably interview a young Sikh man with a turban or a young American Muslim girl or woman who wears a hijab or headscarf. This may help address the growing phenomenon of “hijabophobia.”

    Further, The Daily Show‘s Asif Mandvi, who happens to be an Indian-American Muslim in addition to being funny, could make a cameo appearance to help define and explain a new word (e.g. the word jocular) to the young viewing audience. I am willing to offer my consulting services free of charge to help realize progress in this way.

    The answer does not lie with Sesame Street alone, however. Countless other children’s programming could help as well and impact continued positive change. For instance, in addition to Dora, Diego and Ni Hao, Kai-lan, perhaps Nickelodeon could consider adding similar programming with Arab, Muslim and South Asian heroes and heroines.

    You may be wondering about Omar and his family. His mother organized and conducted cultural competency training on American Muslims and Arab Americans for her son’s school district. It was well-received.

    As for Omar — with the help of his family he has a great new attitude towards bullying which prompts him to stick up for other children targeted in the way he was.

    ‘And now we say, ‘Heil Hitler’’: A teacher had her students give the Nazi salute

    A substitute teacher in Georgia, Vermont, has been fired after she taught her students the Nazi salute and had them demonstrate it with her, according to local media reports.

    The teacher, who was not identified, was filling in as a long-term substitute for a third-grade class at Georgia Elementary & Middle School, per NBC5.

    According to Seven Days, the incident took place Thursday as students were returning from the cafeteria to their classroom. School officials say the children were walking with their arms raised in the traditional Nazi salute, with their teacher demonstrating the post alongside them.

    A parent in the parking lot witnessed the group and said the teacher “then raised her arm slightly and said, ‘and now we say, Heil Hitler,’” per the Milton Independent.

    The parent reported the incident to school officials, who confronted the substitute. The woman reportedly admitted to making the gesture and remark, per NBC5. She was fired Thursday night.

    According to the Independent, the teacher had been subbing at the school for eight years without incident.

    Nazi salutes have landed other people and educators in trouble recently as well, as CNN fired commentator Jeffrey Lord for tweeting the phrase “Sieg Heil,” a traditional Nazi phrase used with a salute. High school students in Albany, California, and Cypress, Texas, posed while making the salute in February and March as well.

    The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum recommends that students begin learning about the historical events of the Holocaust in fourth grade.

    Modern Librarians and their sense of "acceptable" literature

    Elementary school librarian REJECTS First Lady Melania Trump's donation of Dr Seuss books because they are 'tired and cliche'

    • School librarian rejects books donated by First Lady Melania Trump
    • Donation was part of White House initiative dubbed 'National Read a Book Day'
    • Along with the donation came a letter from Melania Trump, which emphasized the importance of education and reading
    • Cambridgeport Elementary School librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro claimed in an open letter that the school did not need the books
    • She called Dr. Seuss cliché, tired and a worn ambassador for children's literature
    • The school district later distanced themselves from Soeiro, saying her opinions do not reflect that of the school system

    A librarian at a Massachusetts elementary school has declined nearly a dozen books donated by Melania Trump, calling them 'tired' and 'cliche.'

    But Cambridgeport Elementary School librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro, whose school represents Massachusetts in the initiative, said on Thursday that her award winning library wasn't in need of the literature.

    'My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science,' Phipps Soeiro wrote in an open letter on the Horn Book blog website.

    'You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Seuss is a bit of a cliché, a tired and worn ambassador for children's literature. As First Lady of the United States, you have an incredible platform with world-class resources at your fingertips,' she wrote.



    What does this dumb cow suggest, "Today I'm Billy, Tomorrow I'm Sue"? My family sticks with traditional children's books and values, like saying thank you after receiving a gift. - MaggiePie

    Another good reason for home schooling.,I would say - Guitarman

    By the looks, she's well aware of tired and cliche. I've never met a child who didn't enjoy a bit of Seuss now and then. Glad she isn't our librarian. - SassySusie

    Teacher Lauren Cox Admits Sexual Relationship with Pupil

    20 April 2016

    A teacher has admitted having sex with a 16-year-old pupil whom she groomed at the London school where she taught.

    Lauren Cox, 27, from Oxted, Surrey, pleaded guilty to four charges of sexual activity with a child under 18 while in a position of trust.

    Croydon Crown Court heard that Cox formed a close relationship with the boy when he was 13 and began a sexual relationship with him in 2015.

    Police said Cox, who will be sentenced next month, had shown no remorse.

    Pc Laura Davies said Cox befriended the boy shortly after starting work at the school in Bromley, south-east London, in 2012, when he was 13.

    'Adverse effect'

    She said: "She abused her position of trust as a teacher and groomed the boy, which went on to sexual abuse.

    "The abuse has had an extremely adverse effect on the boy, with his studies suffering as a result."

    PC Davies added: "It's most concerning that she showed no remorse. As professionals, teachers have a specific duty of care to young people, and this was abused."

    Scotland Yard said Cox began having sexual contact with the boy in January 2015, sending him explicit pictures and videos of herself.

    The relationship ended when the boy's parents suspected something was wrong and Cox was arrested in September the same year.

    Muslim schoolboy's head was stamped on by a gang who ran away laughing

    Boy, 12, who stamped on Muslim schoolboy's head in race hate gang attack warned he could be locked up

    by Paul Britton - 10 OCT 2017

    A 12-year-old yob who stamped on a Muslim schoolboy’s head in a race hate gang attack has been warned he will be locked up if his thuggish behaviour continues.

    The youngster also chased and ‘terrorised’ a 10-year-old boy with a medical crutch while wearing a mask - and caused £500 damage by hurling stones at a truck on a building site.

    The boy, who cannot be identified because of his age, has now been tagged. He said ‘sorry’ as he stood in the dock at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court before being told by the bench of his punishment. He was sentenced to complete an 18-month youth rehabilitation order and will be electronically tagged for three months between 8pm and 7am. The court heard the boy, from north Manchester, has been expelled from schools and hasn’t been in education for more than 18 months. Solicitor Michael Cahill, defending him in court, said he could be removed from his parents’ care, who the court heard ‘cannot restrain him’. Chairman of the bench Ralph Naylor called him a ‘persistent young offender’ and warned him: “If you do not comply with these rules you will be back and you will be going into custody. There is no alternative.” The boy pleaded guilty to criminal damage, affray and threatening a person with an offensive weapon in a public place.

    He denied racially aggravated assault, but was found guilty last month after a trial, at which his 13-year-old victim bravely gave evidence against him.

    The boy was in a gang of ‘six or seven’ who surrounded the young victim and his friends in Blackley on June 24 this year, the court heard.

    Racial slurs were shouted at him before he was grabbed by the neck and brutally attacked.

    He described in a statement, read out in court, of having ‘nowhere to go’ before feeling a shoe connect with his head.

    The boy said: “It felt like I had been stamped on by someone really hard. The stamp made me fall back to the floor and then I felt kicks and stamps all over my head.

    “The pain was unbearable. I just wanted them to stop. They all just attacked me at once. I was so upset I started to cry.”

    The boy, the son of a Syrian refugee, said he heard the gang laughing as they walked away.

    He was left with bruising and swelling to his head and skull and a badly bruised face.

    The boy said the attack meant he couldn’t celebrate Eid with his family as he was in hospital.

    “It has made me feel second class, like being a Muslim is something to be ashamed of,” he added.

    Muslim Students Are Getting Their Hijabs Pulled Off by Teachers in Classrooms Across the Nation

    A Virginia school district has placed a teacher on leave for removing a student’s hijab from her head. The student took to Twitter after the incident Wednesday saying that her hijab was “ripped off her head” by a teacher she appreciated and valued, according to WJLA.

    An account that appears to belong to the student said she was talking with her friend when the teacher pulled off her hijab from behind. To her shock, he then said: “Oh, your hair is so pretty,” she said on Twitter.

    The Fairfax County Public School district released a statement calling the incident “inappropriate and unacceptable.” “FCPS takes this incident seriously and, while a thorough investigation of the incident is conducted, the teacher has been placed on leave,” the district said.

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations confirmed the Twitter statements from the student. “We welcome the decision to place the teacher on leave and to apologize to the student and her family, but further disciplinary action needs to be taken based on the results of the investigation into this disturbing incident," Nihad Awad, CAIR national executive director, said. "No student should be bullied or attacked because of his or her faith. Teachers must protect students, not subject them to harassment or intimidation,”

    School districts have reported hijab pulling at schools across the nation from teachers and students in recent months. CAIR also called for the removal of a teacher from a Nashville, Tennessee, charter school last week. A teacher from the school uploaded a video to social media showing a student at the New Vision Academy Charter School having her hijab removed to show students. In the video, the girl is seen trying to cover up her hair as someone tries to pull off her hijab and play with her hair. A Snapchat video of the incident showed students touching the student’s hair with the caption “pretty hair.”

    The teacher was later suspended without pay last week.

    “New Vision will use this video as an opportunity to press forward with increasing cultural sensitivity and awareness among all members of the New Vision community,” Tim Malone, executive director of the school, said in a statement to WSMV.

    In May, a Bronx substitute teacher in New York City ripped off a second-grade student’s hijab because the student was allegedly misbehaving. The teacher was later charged with a hate crime.

    Sex education needs to be more graphic because teens are trying taboo practices, say experts

    by Sarah Knapton - 20 November 2017

    Sex education may need to become more graphic because teenagers are increasingly experimenting with taboo practices
    , a new study has warned.

    Researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and University College London have been monitoring the changing sexual practices of youngsters since 1990.

    They found that the number of 16-24s moving away from traditional sexual intercourse had doubled, with experts claiming that the easy access to internet pornography was partly behind the rise.

    Dr Ruth Lewis, who conducted the work while at the LSHTM said: “At a time when much sex and relationships education is being updated, keeping pace with current trends in sexual practices is crucial so that curricula are tailored to the realities of young people's experiences.

    "By shedding light on when some young people are having sex and what kinds of sex they are having, our study highlights the need for accurate sex and relationships education that provides opportunities to discuss consent and safety in relation to a range of sexual practices.”

    However, the researchers found that the median age for first sexual experiences has not changed much in recent decades.

    In the most recent survey, the median age of reported first sexual experience among men and women born between 1990 and 1996 was 14. The median age for losing virginity is now 16 across for both men and women.

    In the 1950s it was 20 for women and 19 for men.

    Kaye Wellings, Professor of Sexual and Reproductive Health at LSHTM, said: "The changes in practices we see here are consistent with the widening of other aspects of young people's sexual experience, and are perhaps not surprising given the rapidly changing social context and the ever-increasing number of influences on sexual behaviour.

    "It is important to keep up to date with trends in sexual lifestyles to help young people safeguard their health and increase their well being."

    The research was published in the Journal of Adolescent Health.



    They know that such extreme practices are being done because they are exposed to porn, more ways to hook-up, and relaxed social attitudes towards it, yet they want to expose these youngsters to more graphic porn to stop them from this. This is the level of their intelligence.

    This is what Muslim children will be exposed to in western schools, and how they want to corrupt the Muslim youth by going after hijabs.

    Outrage as five-year-olds get sex-education book on how to achieve orgasms and put on a condom in Germany

    • The book, called 'Where Do You Come From?', sparked outrage
    • It features graphic images of a couple called Lisa and Lars having sex
    • One of the cartoon images shows Lisa putting a condom on Lars
    • Parents complained to the Berlin Senate, the city's governing body

    German school children as young as five were given a sex-education book giving graphic advice on how to put on a condom and how to achieve orgasms.

    Outraged parents complained when youngsters at a school in Berlin were given the book, called 'Where Do You Come From?', which features explicit cartoon depictions of sex.

    The book, which shows a couple called Lisa and Lars engaging in various of stages of intercourse, shows Lisa putting a condom on Lars and another image of the pair having sex.

    According to Spiegel Online, the school in the Kreuzberg area of Berlin did not initially respond to parents' complaints.

    It was only when the local press got wind of the controversy and complaints were made to the city's governing body, the Berlin Senate, that anything was done.

    The book is still said to be available at the school but not readily accessible by pupils.

    Parents were not only concerned by the images featured in the book, but also by some of the explicit descriptions used.

    The book, aimed at educating children aged five years and upwards, reads: 'When it's so good that it can't get any better, Lisa and Lars have an orgasm,' and 'the vagina and penis feel nice and tingly and warm.'

    Politician Dorothee Baer of the Christian Social Union party in Bavaria said: 'Sex education should accompany the development of children, but not speed it up.'

    Monika Grutters from the Christian Democratic Union Party told the Die Welt newspaper that she is against 'unnecessary zeal' in sex education.

    Where Do You Come From? was first published by Loewe Verlag in association with German family planning group Pro Familia in 1991.

    The publishing house said that the book is no longer being produced as some of its messages are out of date and added that it is being replaced with a book called 'Was I in Mummy's Stomach Too?' which the publishers say is less explicit.

    The outrage comes as teachers in the UK have been encouraged to introduce pornography into the classroom, using sex education lessons to explain that porn is 'not all bad' and 'hugely diverse'.

    The recommendations, included in an educational guide, suggest that teachers confront 'myths' about porn and inform children as young as five about sexualisation.

    The guidance could have significant influence in British schools after the Government's decision to keep sex education lessons voluntary, leaving schools to devise their own ways of teaching the subject.

    Four sex scandals rock one hanky-panky high school

    It’s not clear how much reading, writing and arithmetic is going on at James Madison High School in Brooklyn — but it definitely has sex ed covered.

    A special-ed teacher at the school allegedly had carnal relations with a student every day for two months — the fifth teacher accused of sexual misconduct in recent years.

    Robert Cain seduced a girl in his Participation in Government class, and then engaged in daily sex with the teen in his office and a sixth-floor room before taking her to a hotel where he photographed their session, Special Commissioner of Investigation for city schools Richard Condon alleges in a newly released report obtained by The Post.

    That makes five teachers in six years involved in sordid scandals at the Sheepshead Bay school, which counts Sen. Chuck Schumer among its alumni.

    Two language teachers had an alleged lesbian tryst in a classroom in 2009. The same year, a female social studies instructor allegedly wooed a teen. In 2012, a female English teacher was charged with statutory rape after having sex with a 16-year-old boy in her office.

    The Condon report recounts the latest scandal as follows.

    Cain, 38, who is married with two children, met his victim in his class in September 2013. ?He joked with the girl, chatted about classwork and family, teased her and complimented her clothes and looks, the report says.?

    He then spoke about his young daughter, his “ongoing divorce, and his lack of sex.” The student told probers she liked Cain and “did not want to see him depressed.”

    During class that November, the report says, Cain walked around to the girl’s desk and whispered in her ear, “I have inappropriate feelings for you.”

    After class, the girl went to Cain’s office to ask what he meant. In response, the report says, Cain locked his office door, approached the girl from behind and groped her breasts. The girl said she was “nervous, surprised and shocked,” but that she let Cain fondle her.

    The “excited” pair then went to a room on the sixth floor where they had sex, the report says, explaining Cain told the girl no one should know what they were doing or they could both get in trouble.

    After that, the girl cut her fifth-period class every day to go to Cain’s office. There, he would chase other kids out, close the door and make out with his pet. They had sexual intercourse in a “daily routine for two months,” the report says.

    In December 2013, the girl asked Cain if they could spend a day together outside school, she told probers. He picked her up and drove to a Comfort Inn in Brooklyn. In Room 307, the report says, they had sex and Cain took photos on his cellphone.

    After Christmas break, the student saw other girls in Cain’s office and got jealous. She “believed she was in love with Cain and felt something special with him,” the report says. When the girl heard rumors that Cain was dating a female teacher, she sent him an email advising him to leave her alone. He did not reply, which meant, to the girl, that Cain did not care, she told probers.

    A complaint was lodged against Cain in February 2014.

    Interviewed by investigators with his lawyer present, Cain denied he had any sexual relationship with the girl or sex with her anywhere in the school. He described the girl as “aggressive,” the report says.

    Cain also denied he took the student to the Comfort Inn.

    Investigators then showed Cain his $250 hotel credit-card receipt — and security video showing him walking into the hotel and upstairs with the girl.

    First quiet, and then upset, he is quoted as saying: “So what if I took [the student], it doesn’t matter anymore. I’m not a tenured teacher, and I won’t get a job teaching anywhere. I might as well resign.”

    Cain, who made $61,395 in 2014, quit effective last July 1. ?The student’s age at the time is unclear, but no criminal charges were filed.? The age of consent in New York is 17?.

    Condon sent his report to the Department of Education last September and released it to The Post last week.

    Reached outside his Staten Island home, Cain at first claimed his name was Jack Kerns. Handed a copy of the Condon report, Cain said, “I can tell you that if that was me, and I’m not confirming that, most of the information on that sheet of paper, um, is not factual.”

    Pressed, he said, “No comment.”

    James Madison High School has a “Wall of Distinction” honoring famous alumni including Schumer, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, four Nobel Prize winners and Judge Judy.

    It should add a Wall of Lust.

    In November 2009, custodians discovered French and Spanish instructors Cindy Mauro and Alini Brito canoodling nearly naked in a darkened classroom at 8:50 p.m. One vixen was lying on the floor while the other woman was on her knees between her legs, an investigative report says. An assistant principal summoned to the scene found Brito buttoning her shirt and zipping up her boots.

    Former school superintendent Linda Waite reported the women were drunk at the time.

    Brito claimed she is a diabetic and that she was feeling ill. “Let’s go upstairs,” Mauro said, according to the report. “I have sugar and candy in my room.” Brito claimed she felt faint and that’s why she lay down on the floor.

    The tenured teachers were terminated just over a year later, but a judge ruled the firing “too harsh.” Brito served a one-year suspension and will return to the school system in the fall, the DOE said, though it’s unclear where. Mauro’s case is still pending.

    Social studies instructor Allison Musacchio was yanked from the school in December 2009 for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a minor. Investigators said Musacchio exchanged 200 texts with the boy. She was fired in 2010.

    English teacher Erin Sayar was busted in May 2012 for statutory rape after having sex with a 16-year-old student. She allegedly gave pot to the boy, exchanged 3,856 text messages with him over seven days and had intercourse and oral sex at least eight times — sometimes in her office. She even picked him up from his home one night and they had sex in her SUV.

    The student’s girlfriend discovered the affair and the boy admitted to the liaison. Sayar lost her teaching license, received 10?years’ probation and was tagged as a Level 1 sex offender after copping a plea in August 2013.



    Welcome to the 21st century, where sleeping with your students is so common. The moral integrity is no longer there for the educators, many are raised on trashy culture and thus act on their lustful desires, abusing their position of authority. More and more Christians are homeschooling their children to keep them safe from pedophile teachers and the sexual grooming of their "modern" teaching curriculum.

    A school teacher in Texas calls police on 6-year-old Muslim boy with special needs (Down's Syndrome), claiming he is a "terrorist".


    “Mohammad was born with Down Syndrome chromosome 21,” said his father Maher Suleiman.

    The 6-year-old boy also has intellectual difficulties and doesn’t speak.

    “He needs care all the time,” said Maher.

    Mohammad attends C. J. Harris Elementary School in Pearland.

    Maher said his son’s regular teacher left and a substitute teacher called Pearland police about his son. He also said the school told the officer that Mohammad could talk.

    “It’s not true, he doesn’t speak at all,” said Maher. He also said the substitute teacher told police the boy would reportedly say "Allah" and "boom."

    “She claimed he was a terrorist,” said Maher. “This is so stupid, it’s discrimination. Actually, it’s not implied discrimination, it’s actual discrimination.”

    The teacher’s reported accusation against the special needs child prompted a police investigation and one by Child Protective Services as well.

    “The last three to four weeks have been the hardest of my life,” said Maher. “My wife and kids were crying a few days ago and I told them everything is fine.”

    “In my opinion, based on everything I heard from the police department and speaking with the administration from the school, that this was a story piece milled together by a substitute teacher alleging this child was sexually harassing her, the teacher, and possibly being a terrorist,” said community activist Quanell X. “A 6-year-old kid.”

    The Pearland Police Department told FOX 26 News that they did conduct an investigation but found no need for police involvement.

    CPS says its investigation remains open.

    A spokesperson for the Pearland Independent School District said the district cannot release any student or personnel information due to privacy laws.

    A petition now has thousands of signatures asking a Pearland school to ban the substitute teacher.


    Comments: These kind of teachers are extremely dangerous individuals. Imagine if she can call police on a special needs child how would she be behaving in her day to day life regarding minorities and around people who might have a different pigment of color than hers.

    School teacher rips Muslim girl's hijab off and posts video online

    Muslim Student Facing Cyberbullying for Reporting Hijab Removal by Teacher

    CAIR Seeks Protection for Va. Muslim Student Facing Cyberbullying for Reporting Hijab Removal by Teacher


    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, called on school officials in Virginia to protect a Muslim student who is facing cyberbullying after reporting that a teacher forcibly-removed her Islamic head scarf, or hijab.

    That teacher at Lake Braddock Secondary School in Burke, Va., was placed on leave following the incident and the school district is promising a “thorough investigation” of the incident. CAIR sought further disciplinary action.

    CAIR said the cyberbullying includes a tweet stating “f**k that dumb Muslim b**ch,” and a private message on Twitter Sent to the Muslim student stating “F**k is wrong with you?”

    In a letter sent to Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and to the school’s principal, CAIR wrote in part:

    “While the FCPS conducts its investigation into [the teacher’s] actions, students and at least one Lake Braddock teacher have waged a social media campaign to intimidate and bully [the Muslim student]. Additionally, students held a protest to support the accused teacher during school hours on November 17, 2017, and during which an administrator acted in a manner that puts the credibility of the FCPS investigation in doubt.

    “…Principal Thomas is heard emboldening the students by informing them: “Your message is powerful. . .I hear you, and I will advocate for you.” It seems that Principal Thomas has thrown his support behind the accused teacher. As a result, we have no confidence that the school will conduct a fair and unbiased investigation.

    “To make matters worse, the students and at least one Lake Braddock teacher, have bullied and intimidated Yasmin on social media by posting messages on Twitter using the hashtag ‘#FreeSaunders.’ The students and teacher are retaliating against [the Muslim student] for reporting her incident. Shamefully, their comments indicate anti-Muslim sentiment…

    “We have no doubt Fairfax County Public Schools considers the protection of its students, as well as their constitutional rights, top priorities. In addition to your investigation into [the teacher’s] actions, we request that you investigate the actions outlined above, issue appropriate discipline, and take appropriate steps to restore a safe educational environment.”

    READ CAIR’S Letter: http://www.cair.com/images/pdf/CAIR_Letter_to_FCPS.pdf

    CAIR is urging students of all faiths and backgrounds in Virginia and nationwide to report any incidents of bullying or harassment and to speak out when their educational environment is negatively impacted by bigotry.

    CAIR recently called for a criminal investigation and the firing of a teacher at a Tennessee charter school after a video was circulated online of a Muslim student having her Islamic head scarf, or hijab, forcibly removed in a classroom.

    PA School District To Teenage Boy: Undress In Front Of Girls And Make It 'Natural'

    by: HANK BERRIEN - MARCH 24, 2017

    In an unbelievable invasion of privacy, a Pennsylvania school district told a teenage boy that if a teenage girl is in the locker room with him, he should “tolerate” undressing in front of her and make it as “natural” as possible.

    The boy, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom and Independence Law Center (ILC), is filing suit against the Boyertown Area School District, its superintendent, and the principal and assistant principal of Boyertown Area High School, accusing them of shaming him, violating his personal privacy, and sexually harassing him.

    At the end of October 2016, the lawsuit alleges, the boy began changing in the locker room for physical education class. He was standing in his underwear about to put on his gym clothes when he realized there was a member of the opposite sex changing with him in the locker room, only wearing shorts and a bra.

    The boy and several classmates reported the incident to the assistant principal, Dr. E. Wayne Foley. The lawsuit asserts, “Dr. Foley indicated that the legality was up in the air but that students who mentally identify themselves with the opposite sex could choose the locker room and bathroom to use, and physical sex did not matter.”

    When the boy asked if there was anything that could be done to protect him from the situation, Foley told him to “tolerate” it and make it as “natural” as he possibly could, according to the lawsuit. Foley allegedly reiterated that the boy should make it “natural” as the boy exited.

    The lawsuit points out that neither the principal nor the assistant principal had notified the boy’s parents that the school district permitted students of one sex to use the locker rooms and bathrooms of students of the opposite sex.

    A few days after the incident, the boy’s parents met with Foley, who allegedly told them that the school district was “all-inclusive” and the boy could change in the nurse’s office if he wished. The parents then met with the principal, Dr. Brett Cooper, who also reportedly told them their son could use the nurse’s office.

    It gets worse.

    The lawsuit alleges that the school district then informed the principal at the Vo-Tech school, Berks Career and Technology School-Oley Campus, where the boy went to school half of the day, that the boy had seen Foley about the matter. That prompted the principal at Vo-Tech to pull the boy out of class and allegedly tell him he “wanted to make sure none of that negativity was going to happen at his school.”

    Next, the boy’s parents met with the superintendent of the school district, Dr. Richard Faidley. Faidley allegedly told them that if their son was uncomfortable with the situation or with using the nurse’s office, then he could be home-schooled instead of attending Boyertown.

    ILC attorney Randall Wenger stated:
    No school should rob any student of this legally protected personal privacy. We trust that our children won’t be forced into emotionally vulnerable situations like this when they are in the care of our schools because it’s a school’s duty to protect and respect the bodily privacy and dignity of all students.”

    The lawsuit asserts, “The District’s directive to Joel Doe was that he must change with students of the opposite sex, and make it as natural as possible, and that anything less would be intolerant and bullying against students who profess a gender identity with the opposite sex.”



    How many schools have such policies and the students never tell their parents?! Especially the Muslim students.

    Oklahoma schools go on 4-day weeks so teachers can work at Walmart on Mondays to make rent

    In 1992, Oklahoma passed a ballot initiative saying that the state could only raise taxes with a three quarters majority in the state assembly, creating a one-way ratchet where every tax cut becomes effectively permanent, including the sweetheart deals cut for frackers and the deep cuts to taxes on the wealthiest residents of the state.

    As a result, the state is going broke. Teachers haven't gotten a raise in 10 years and the only way they can afford to accept the pay -- third-worst in the nation -- is by negotiating a four-day school week in 90 districts, freeing teachers up to take jobs at Walmart on Mondays to make ends meet.

    Teachers are fleeing the state in droves, including the Teacher of the Year, who quit his job in 2016 shortly after receiving his award, taking a better-paid teaching job in a neighboring state (the Dallas school system actively recruits Oklahoma teachers with Oklahoma City hiring booths).

    Teachers are especially hard hit: their health plan was replaced with a private system that eats up more than $1000/month for a family of three -- one teaching aide was actually paying to work her job, spending $200/month more on health insurance than she was paid in salary. Teachers make ends meet with public housing vouchers and food stamps, and school food-bank drives sometimes give their leftovers to hungry teachers and their families.

    It's not just teachers: the highway patrol has been given orders not to completely fill their gas-tanks at the pump, to help with state cash-flow; drunk drivers go free because there is no one available to process their tickets, and the prison system is on the verge of collapse.

    No fact embarrasses Oklahomans more, or repels prospective businesses more, than the number of cash-strapped districts that have gone to four-day weeks. Yet even such a radical change may not help finances much. Paul Hill, a professor of education at the University of Washington, Bothell, estimates that the savings are “in the 1 or 2% range at most”. That sliver is still important to Kent Holbrook, superintendent of public schools in Inola (the self-styled “Hay Capital of the World”). “In my mind, that’s five or six teachers,” says Mr Holbrook. Already, from 2008 to 2016, he has lost 11 teachers from a corps that once numbered 100. He has also had to reduce Spanish classes and, for the tenth year running, delay buying new textbooks.
