Libertarianism – The Shocking Notion that Other People Are Not Your Property

2 of the most interesting people in political thought. Both of whom in my experience are actually decent human beings too.

Almost everyone knows Ron Paul but more people should be familiar with Tom Woods who’s bookMeltdown is a fantastic (and very accessible) explanation of the 2008 Crash. You can read his work and listen to his show at TomWoods.com.

Teacher Rapes 10 y/o Special Ed Student Then Says “Sorry. I Was Too Rough…But, It’s Normal”

special education teacher rapes student ny

Special Ed Teacher rapes 10 y/0 student but apologizes in a letter saying:

“I was too rough. Sorry. It’s normal. You may feel pain for a few days.”

Although I realize that most educators are good, moral, well-intentioned people, I do believe the educational system is more than broken at this point. Kids are having sex in schools (literally in the school buildings), teachers increasingly are inappropriate with students. Often when crimes are committed it seems as though the school ignores violence, yet children are suspended for eating their pop tarts into the shape of a gun and other ridiculous nonsense.  Rather than throwing more money into a money pit that to try to fix the unfixable, it’s time to turn education over to the states and let each state regulate their own educational. This would hopefully lead to more local responsibility taken and more scrutiny of school employees. I am relieved to see this mans crime is being taken seriously (as far as I can tell). So many times government employees seem to (sometimes literally) get away with murder.

Teacher Rapes 10 y/o Special Ed Student Then Says “Sorry. I Was Too Rough…But, It’s Normal” 

Once this burly, heavily muscled man had the little girl in his car, he took her to a Queens parking lot and raped her. He wasn’t worried about passers-by, because of his heavily tinted car windows.

The day after this horrific assault, Criscuolo sent the girl an email apologizing for being “too rough”:

I was too rough. Sorry. It’s normal. You may feel pain for a few days.

There is nothing “normal” about a man raping a ten-year-old child. This kind of “normal” exists only in the mind of a very, very sick and evil human being. What makes it even worse – and it’s hard to get worse than what Criscuolo did — was the fact that he did this to a special needs child entrusted to his care.

Criscuolo is being charged with, among other things, rape, predatory sexual assault against a child, and endangering the welfare of a child. At his arraignment today, the Court ordered he be held on a $750,000 bond and $500,000 cash bail.

Because Criscuolo has worked in the New York Public school system for eleven years, investigators are trying to determine whether he left any other victims behind him.

PORTLAND SCHOOLS SPEND $500K TO DEEM SANDWICHES RACIST

peanut butter and jelly (pb&j) definitely racist according to Portland school

AT LAST! SOMEONE GETS IT! OF COURSE SANDWICHES ARE RACIST!

Not really…

That’s actually one of the stupidest Ideas I’ve ever heard.

I want to work for the Pacific Education Group so that I can get $500,000 bucks for telling people that sandwiches are racist. What a bunch of morons… 

 

PORTLAND SCHOOLS SPEND $500K TO DEEM PB&J SANDWICHES RACIST

Portland, Ore. – Dr. Verenice Gutierrez, a principal with Oregon’s Portland Public Schools, has become convinced that America’s “white culture” negatively influences educators’ world view and the manner in which they teach their students.

For instance, last year a teacher in the district presented a lesson that included a reference to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Gutierrez says that by using sandwiches as an illustration, the teacher was engaged in a very subtle form of racism.

“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” asked Gutierrez, according to Portland Tribune. “Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.”

Gutierrez is not the only Portland administrator who has become obsessed with identifying such forms of alleged racism. Almost all Portland school leaders have gone through “Coaching for Educational Equity,” a week-long seminar on race that’s conducted by the Pacific Educational Group.

The Pacific Educational Group is the brainchild of Glenn Singleton, whose mission is to enlighten educators about how public schools promote “white culture” and “white privilege.” He argues that those conditions are responsible for the black/white achievement gap that exists throughout America’s public education system.

The Portland school district has certainly taken Singleton’s message to heart.

EAGnews discovered that since the 2010-11 fiscal year, the cash-starved school district has spent $526,901 for services provided by Singleton’s Pacific Educational Group.

That’s a serious “investment,” especially when one realizes the district is facing financial problems, and has been forced to lay off teachers and cut classroom resources.

What are Portland schools getting in return for all the money spent on PEG?

According to the Tribune, Portland educators are subjected to “intensive staff trainings, frequent staff meetings, classroom observations and other initiatives,” all based on Singleton’s premise that only by becoming aware of the pervasive “white privilege” can teachers change their classroom practices to reach minority students.

In addition to teaching that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are racist, PEG trains educators to view “rugged individualism,” “adherence to rigid time schedules,” and the belief that “hard work is the key to success” as traits of the dominant white culture.

PEG teaches that minority cultures value “color group collectivism,” “interdependence,” group success, shared property, learning through social relationships, and making life choices based on “what will be best for the family or group.”

Upon receiving this revelation from PEG, educators are encouraged to create culturally sensitive lesson plans that make use of “group homework preparation,” “cooperative projects,” and “choral reading.”

So how’s this new approach working for Gutierrez’s school?

The Tribune reports that “Oregon’s Department of Education just last month identified Harvey Scott School (where Gutierrez is principal) as a ‘focus school,’ which means it’s among the state’s lowest performing 15 percent.”

Perhaps if the staff spent more time on academic fundamentals, instead of obsessing about non-existent racial issues, the students would learn more.

We wonder how taxpayers will react when they discover Portland officials are wasting precious time and money to promote an ideology that may soon classify peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a “hate food.”
