During the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton often delivered the line: “America is great, because she is good.”

It was a feel-good line, deployed then as code for “America is too good to elect Donald Trump.”

Notwithstanding the thick irony of Clinton claiming to be the virtuous

Social justice warriors who have busied themselves pointing out “micro-aggressions” and decrying “cultural appropriation” can now avail themselves of a lengthy study course in their chosen field.

North Carolina State University recently announced that it will be offering a Ph.D. course in Social Justice Education as of Fall 2019. The course, which was later renamed the Educational Equity course, is being offered with the aim of teaching “scholar-activists” how to bring about social justice in a classroom setting by disrupting oppressive learning systems, creating equitable learning environments and promoting social diversity in any educational setting.

Ocasio-Cortez Is Green on the Outside, Red on the Inside

Her “Green New Deal” is a radical remaking of the American energy sector.

By Nate Jackson · at the Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/60344

For a generation, Democrats have moved ever more “progressively” to the extreme Left on climate change, advocating what we’ve dubbed ecofascist policies in order to undermine the free market in the name of combatting global warming. Their extremism continued this week, as the “new face of the Democratic Party,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is now leading a charge aimed at utterly remaking the energy sector.

The House’s Millennial heartthrob is pushing what Democrats are calling a “Green New Deal,” which is a series of legislative proposals that the Heartland Institute’s Justin Haskins calls “the most radical policy shift in modern U.S.

Higher Education Subsidies Are Cleaning Out Students and Enriching Bureaucrats

Government subsidies are a recipe for higher costs and inefficiency, regardless of the product or sector.

By Daniel J Mitchell @fee.org

I’m not as eloquent on the issue as Professor Daniel Lin, but I recently explained on Fox Business that government subsidies for higher education have enabled big increases in tuition, an outcome that has been good for bureaucrats and bad for students.

In effect, this is simply a story of “third-party payer,” which happens when consumers get to buy something with other people’s money.

Sellers respond by increasing prices since they know that consumers won’t care as much about price.

Indeed, this is the main problem plaguing America’s health sector.

Simply stated, government subsidies are a recipe

Chinese schools are using ‘smart uniforms’ to track their students’ locations

Share

By Chaim Gartenberg The Verge @msn.com

Chinese schools are now tracking the exact location of their students using chip-equipped “smart uniforms” in order to encourage better attendance rates, according to a report from state-run newspaper The Global Times (via The Telegraph).

The implementation is just about as unsettling as “using smart technology to track students’ whereabouts” sounds. Each uniform has two chips in the shoulders which are used to track when and where the students enter or exit the school, with an added dose of facial recognition software at the entrances to make sure that the right student is wearing the right outfit (so you can’t just have your friend, say, wear an extra shirt while you go

Handcuffed for Homeschooling? Paperwork Dispute Gets Ugly

Share

By Jennifer Lade – at the Daily Bell

A school system in Massachusetts is proving to be malicious, incompetent, or maybe both.

Of course, we suspected that already. But the latest example comes from a lawsuit from a woman who pulled her 8-year-old son from Worcester Public Schools to homeschool him last January.

Josilyn Goodall is suing the Worcester School Committee, Superintendent Maureen Binienda, and the state Department of Children and Families after police entered her home, handcuffed her, and arrested her over what amounted to a paperwork dispute.

According to the lawsuit, Goodall is seeking unspecified compensatory damages for the violation of her Constitutional rights and for the “mental pain and suffering” inflicted upon her and her son.
