An Iowa school board member posted on Facebook on Tuesday that public education is not to teach kids what parents want, but rather what the community needs. "The purpose of a public ed is to not teach kids what the parents want. It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client is not the parent, but the community," Linn-Mar school board member Rachel Wall posted.

Wait a minute, folks! Don't you see that Rachel Wall has neatly articulated the basic conflict in the world today, which is the fight between INDIVIDUALISM and COLLECTIVISM. Anyone who believes the "client" of education is the community is a COLLECTIVIST and anyone who believes the "client" is the parent is an INDIVIDUALIST, which on a national scale is the fight between NATIONALISM and GLOBALISM. Which are you: INDIVIDUALIST or COLLECTIVIST? NATIONALIST or COLLECTIVIST?

As Hillary once said, "it takes a village to raise your kid." Apparently Ms. Wall believed this drivel.

Likewise it is NOT their job to circumvent parents in favor of what individual teachers determine the community needs. And for the record - parents ARE part of the community.

The school board member is correct, except that they are forgetting that the parents are part of that society and are the people most likely to know what society needs the children to learn. Which is the conservative answer to this liberal talking point.

"The purpose of a public ed is to not teach kids what the parents want. It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client is not the parent, but the community," sounds like something straight out of John Dewey (basically the father of our modern education system since the very early 20th century).

The "client" - be it the community, parents, or student - wants a graduate who can read, write, and perform basic math. Get back to us when you start producing that, Rachel, and we'll talk about adding any fluff to the curriculum.

This is why school boards keep getting called out when their misdeeds are exposed. Parents are entitled to advocate for the best interests of their children, whether or not school boards, school systems, or educational bureaucracies agree with parental priorities. Some communities are dysfunctional, so the expectation that responsible parents will go along with a harmful political agenda while their students educational needs take a back seat to "equity" (and secrecy) hasn't worked out very well for the promoters of such nonsense.

well, you are as incoherent as a nail Linn-Mar school board member Rachel Wall and fail to understand that the parents pay for your school so they have every right to demand the subjects taught are approved by them, who the hell do you think you are??

Sounds to me like that community needs to upgrade their school board by replacing the 'statist' bureaucrats with new members who represent the parents.

Then being on the school board is not the job for this parasite. Time for "public servants" to learn their place in the hierarchy. WE ARE YOUR MASTERS It's past time for tarring and feathering of insubordinate parasites. Examples must be made to show the other parasites that disrespecting your masters will not be tolerated.

This is a perfect example of leftist arrogance. They are so sure of their ideology that they want to be the ones who manipulate and indoctrinate your children, it’s hubris gone mad. They are so sure that they are right that they will shut off your speech, get you fired or send some FBI thugs to your house to ask you why you don’t agree with the narrative. It’s all for your own good, of course. If you have the means and ability, please get your kids out of public schools.

the COVID Vaccines to Manipulate the American People

One of the strangest parts of the COVID-19 pandemic has been all of the public health “experts” who openly lied to the American people while expecting to be lauded as heroes in response. Certainly, most have witnessed Dr. Anthony Fauci’s grotesque level of arrogance over the years, with numerous examples of the good doctor admitting to lying in order to get the outcome he desired from the public. For his efforts, he’s got magazine covers and million-dollar awards. But we shouldn’t forget about Dr. Deborah Birx, the other half of Donald Trump’s initial COVID-19 advisory team. Though she has rarely drawn the

Ronna McDaniel won a fourth term to head the Republican National Committee (RNC) during a secret ballot vote by members on Friday, capping off a contentious election spurred by calls within the party for new leadership. McDaniel fended off two challengers — California attorney Harmeet Dhillon and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a staunch denier of the 2020 presidential election results. She received 111 votes, while Dhillon received 51 and Lindell received four. Former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who did not ultimately make a run for RNC chair, also received one vote.

A San Francisco court has released the shocking police bodycam footage showing the moment that Paul Pelosi was violently assaulted with a hammer in his home in October.   Paul, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband, was asleep at the couple’s San Francisco home in the early hours of October 28 when 42-year-old David DePape broke in and beat him with a hammer, prosecutors allege.  The video shows two police officers arriving at the Pelosi's home, knocking on the door and waiting around 20 seconds before it is answered. 
Canada's Deputy PM: U.S. Middle Class
'Needs a Pay Cut'

The Deputy Prime Minister of Canada and confirmed WEF goon Chrystia Freeland has determined that the American middle class “needs a pay cut.” Following an anecdote of an unnamed person who gave her the idea, she explicitly confirms her belief that the prescription for a middle-class wealth downgrade is the correct policy position but mentions the “very difficult” political and social sell to the middle class. As we slide further down the slope into multinational technocracy, the rhetoric will gradually shift in this direction. The “green” revolution and veganism and other energy and food restriction schemes began, if you can recall, with promises of economic expansion

President Biden helped his convict 31-year-old niece Caroline Biden land an interview for a job at Masimo Corporation, whose owner is one of his biggest donors, but she balked at the $85,000-a-year salary, records from Hunter Biden's laptop show.  Caroline, the daughter of Joe Biden's brother Jim and his wife Sara, in 2017 pled guilty to buying more than $100,000 worth of makeup on a stolen credit card.  She managed to get out of a grand larceny charge and the two-year prison sentence that carried, but was sentenced to two years' probation, which she wanted to serve in Los Angeles to be near her cousin Hunter Biden. 
Pfizer Director Speaks Giddily About Manipulating SARS-CoV-2 26 replies

Watching a Project Veritas undercover sting operation invariably leaves me with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I’m struck with admiration for yet another one of James O’Keefe’s bold strokes against the corrupt empire that now dominates our world. On the other hand, I’m shocked by the disclosure that the Empire is staffed by such moral and intellectual lightweights. Though incredible, it appears that the subject of O’Keefe’s latest sting, Jordon Walker, really is a Pfizer Director of Research & Development Strategic Operations. Here he is giddily talking about deliberately mutating SARS-CoV-2 by means of “directed evolution” in order to keep Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine gravy train going.
Where Have All the Station Wagons Gone? 25 replies

As I said a heartfelt goodbye to my 2014 Subaru Impreza Sport 5-Door last September, there was something I wondered as I walked off the used car lot: where are all the station wagons? As it turns out, in the year 2023, there aren’t that many station wagons on the road, period. “The standard data provider for new vehicle sales doesn’t even break down wagons anymore,” says Kevin Roberts, director of industry insights and analytics at CarGurus. “Most of the time, they’ll probably end up classified as a crossover or a hatchback.” Some data aggregators have “station wagon” as a trim or body variant, but you’ll be hard-pressed

Representative Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) announced Thursday that he will be launching a campaign for Senator Dianne Feinstein’s California seat in 2024. “I look forward to campaigning hard in this race, meeting Californians where they are, and listening to what they want from their next Senator. I hope to earn their votes and their trust,” Schiff said in a statement. Schiff was recently removed from the House Intelligence Committee by Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) in response to the former’s conduct as a lead investigator during the Trump impeachment hearings.
The Republican Party Hates You 23 replies

As RedState reported, Ronna McDaniel has been re-elected as the chair of the Republican National Committee. That followed a contentious, months-long battle with notable GOP lawyer Harmeet Dhillon, who ultimately ended up well short of the number to overtake McDaniel. (Tweets) McDaniel is now the longest-serving party chair in modern American history. What did she do to deserve that honor? She and her party lost the 2018 election, lost the 2020 election, and severely underperformed in the 2022 election. Apparently, being a consistent loser is all it takes to win the blessing of the GOP’s party elite. Why? Because the Republican Party hates you.

Parents at a Michigan school board meeting confronted a school board member for making incendiary – and racist – comments about white people in a series of tweets in December. Many demanded her resignation, but the school board member took the opportunity to double down on her remarks. In December, Kesha Hamilton, a member of the Jackson school board, tweeted: "Whiteness is so evil. it manipulates then says, I won’t apologize for my dishonesty and trauma-inducing practices and thinks you should applaud it for being honest about its ability to manipulate and be dishonest."

I first encountered unabashed pride in being American when I came to the United States in 1951. I sailed across the Atlantic alone. Perhaps someone along the way told me tht I was going to the United States; however, as a seven or eight-year-old I knew nothing about the nation that had granted me refuge. Upon disembarking in New York what stood out was not the awe-inspiring and intimidating skyscrapers seemingly reaching to the heavens, or for the first time in my life seeing a city not lying in ruins from the ravages of war, but that there was a palpable atmosphere of confidence, optimism,
Biden proposes changes in ‘whiteness’

The Biden administration is facing some scrutiny over a proposal to change the way it racially/ethnically classifies federal employees. At the moment, anyone of Middle Eastern or North African descent only has the option of identifying/being classified as “white.” Were the administration’s proposal to be approved, these individuals would instead have the option of identifying as Middle Eastern or North African. The proposal would accomplish this by rewriting the Office of Management and Budget 1997 Statistical Policy Directive No. 15: Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity (SPD 15).
