USED Document Says Tech Providers CANNOT Require You To Waive Your FERPA Rights

Anne Gassel – We’ll take any ray of hope, no matter how small, at this point when it comes to being able to protect our children’s privacy. That ray came in a complaint finding letter issued November 2017 from the U.S. Dept of Education which reaffirmed “A parent or eligible student cannot be required to waive the rights and protections accorded under FERPA as a condition of acceptance into an educational institution or receipt of educational training or services.” The statement by the Family Policy Compliance Office was in response to...

I am. This post is adapted from one of his blogs. Pflaum writes that using experiences, reflections, and insights geared to “struggling, reluctant, and average readers...

Florida House passes bill requiring ‘In God We Trust’ to be prominently posted in all public schools

Dave Urbanski – The Florida House overwhelmingly passed a bill Wednesday requiring all public schools to post “In God We Trust” in a “conspicuous place,” the Tampa Bay Times reported. The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Kimberly Daniels (D), runs a ministry and said displaying the phrase — the state motto — is needed in the wake of last week’s deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, the paper reported. Special: Expert says this will be a national nightmare Florida state Rep. Kimberly Daniels (Image source: YouTube...

Mexican Gun Control Ensures Cartels Outgun the Good Guys

Ryan McMaken – 2017 may have been the worst year for homicide in Mexico since the government began keeping track in the 1990s. It’s a safe bet that the homicide rate isn’t coming anywhere near what it was in the years surrounding the revolution. But it may be the worst rate in several decades. German news site DW reports: The Interior Ministry said authorities … put the country’s [2017] homicide rate at 20.5 per 100,000 inhabitants. The highest figure ever recorded in Mexico before last year was in 2011, during...

Mom breaks down describing effects of kindergarten transgender lesson on her 5-year-old

Lianne Laurence – A mom whose five-year-old daughter was in a California kindergarten classroom when a teacher read a book on transgenderism and her classmate switched from a boy to a “girl” broke down describing the incident at a board meeting earlier this month. “I thought that they would take my religious beliefs, my, I mean, I am part of the public, right? I thought they would take those into consideration,” said the mother of two. “Instead, they swept us aside like we were trash, like, we have plenty of children on the waitlist, if...

Against Their Will: Locked away in a mental hospital hospital after voluntarily seeking help

An 11-year-old boy was locked in a mental hospital for a week after his mother took him there voluntarily seeking help. He’s not alone. The accounts of people shared here should not dissuade individuals from getting mental health help. But, too often, experts say that for-profit, private facilities do not choose the “least restrictive appropriate setting” for therapy, as mandated by current law, and instead default to locking up people in more expensive inpatient care when it’s not necessary. You can get help without...

The Rising Tide in the Desert

by Matthew Ladner –   Too much of Arizona’s K-12 debate focuses on inputs, too little on outputs. Some districts have been gaining enrollment, others losing enrollment, but this is an entirely secondary concern when compared to the question of whether an increasing number of Arizona students are acquiring the knowledge, skills and habits for success in life. The above chart from the Center for Student Achievement shows enrollment trends for districts and charters in a number of Arizona districts. Some districts gained students despite...

Guns and Schools: Can the Market do Better?

Jeff Deist – There is no epidemic of gun violence in America; quite the opposite in fact. But last week’s shooting at a high school in Florida was a grim and jarring reminder of deep cultural problems lurking just beneath the veneer of our materially comfortable society. Those problems are beyond the scope of libertarianism per se, but again we see that greater liberty will require a renaissance in civil society: nihilism and hopelessness among any segment of the population is far more dangerous than “assault rifles.” The less we are...
