Parents of students who attend Rutherford County Schools (RCS) must agree not to monitor their child’s online classroom sessions. Officials at all county schools are asking parents to sign forms agreeing not to watch these virtual classes. The Tennessee Star received a copy of such a form this week. “RCS strives to present these opportunities in a secure format that protects student privacy to the greatest extent possible, however because these meetings will occur virtually RCS is limited in its ability to fully control certain factors such as non-student observers that may be present in the home of a student participating in the virtual meeting,” according to the form.

Excuse me ? You are going into their homes via the Internet and telling the parents what to do ? Parents need to grow a spine.

RCS spokesman explained the intent was to protect the privacy of the other students in the virtual classroom. I can see their point; it wasn’t to keep the parents out of their own children’s school, but to protect the other kids displayed on the computer screen. In a ZOOM meeting, you can see who’s there in all the little boxes. The idea of sending government employees to private homes for “child welfare checks” is from the state. To which I say, Absolutely not!

This version of “it’s for the children” is just creepy. What kind of parent would sign a form that says their children can meet with adults for several hours each day but they aren’t allowed to observe what takes place? No responsible parent would ever agree to this. Especially not in today’s world.

#8 just beat me to it...they don't want you watching because they don't want you to see the garbage they are throwing out as 'teaching points'...if I signed it you can bet I'd be watching, and recording the classes...which I'd be doing anyway.

Uh.. NO! If you are in my house, via any device - I monitor my kids progress and can listen and watch what is happening.. if a parent doesn’t want their child on zoom video- the parent can have audio only.. I do have another suggestion: homeschool! Homeschool options via an academy with virtual instructors are abounding! Parents don’t have to reinvent curriculum wheel, just chose curriculum best meeting need of child. Take charge of your kids education! Break up the NEA-

If you don't have anything to hide...?! "For the protection of other students" - All parents are likely to protect all students. What is dangerous, bigoted, slanted, disinformation for mine, is dangerous, bigoted, slanted, disinformation for yours, isn't it? Does it only take a village to wreck children, but not to save them?

good point on Lady lucifer, #13. I suppose she meant 'certain villagers' rather than the entire village. i spent 25 years teaching, mostly at the graduate level. I never turned anyone away from my classroom, ever. In fact, I viewed it an honor that someone wanted to watch my class. I also did volunteer senior seminars, Jewish Community Center world forums, and Elderhostel courses. I wonder about that school district's curriculum on LBGTQ stuff. I hope it is not like one teacher's approach, where he told students not to disdain gay sex - that they wouldn't know if they liked it unless they tried it.

I'm guessing that they are afraid it will turn into a reality show to see which idiot second grader needs to be "voted off". To get around this they could always let the children come to the school to be taught. Have they thought of that?

What are they afraid of? Are they concerned that parents might see some of their indoctrination techniques or how they use revisionist history to turn children against their own country? I hope parents wake up to see what a threat the teachers union is to the future of their children.

There was a fascinating interview with Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov in 1984 in which he foretold in unerring detail the exact social and political scenarios that would exist in America in the near future. His contention was that the KGB was involved primarily not in espionage, but in an activity that he called "ideological subversion." According to Bezmenov, the KGB's goal was to take down America by slowly changing the minds of the population from within. He said the Soviet Union was producing Marxist-Leninist thoughts that are "being pumped into the heads of American students without [those thoughts] being counterbalanced by American/capitalistic values."

TikTok, popular with smart phone users under 25, has 100 million users in the U.S. Since its introduction in app stores less than three years ago, TikTok has been one of the most downloaded apps on smart phones.

Joe Biden delivered a solid, if overhyped, speech last night accepting his party’s nomination for the highest office in the land. It effectively put a cap on the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and summed up the Democrats’ case thus: Joe Biden is a good and kind man; Donald Trump is not. Biden’s decency has been hugely exaggerated, as my colleague Ramesh Ponnuru has explained at Bloomberg Opinion, but he does seem a Boy Scout compared with his opponent.

As many as 200 demonstrators rampaged near a police station in the Oregon city, pelting a protective line of unoccupied police vehicles with golf balls, softball-sized rocks, metal railroad spikes, paint-filled plastic eggs and balloons filled with feces. A torn-up street sign was also used to smash cars, with tires slashed and windows broken, police said. Officers said they didn’t intervene at that point because it was only property, and they figured allowing the rampaging to run its course might

Joe Biden is being accused of plagiarizing the words of a left-wing Canadian politician in his convention speech. In his highly anticipated convention speech on Thursday, the Democratic nominee said, “Love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear. And light is more powerful than dark.” Canadians were quick to point out that those words were extremely similar to the dying message of Jack Layton, the leader of Canada’s New Democratic Party, who in 2011 wrote, “My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair." CBC correspondent Alexander Panetta pointed out the similarities on Twitter.
