Student Suspended for Refusing to Leave Classroom During Gun Control #Walkout

walkoutwalkout

The idea that this week’s school walkout was some grassroots movement by students who are seeking to challenge the status quo is a farce. The entire walkout was organized and sanctioned by the establishment and, as an incident out of Ohio shows, in one instance, choosing a side was even mandatory.

On Wednesday, millions of students across the country were encouraged by the government, mainstream media, and even their own school systems to walk out of class and demand the government take away their rights. It was, by no means, a challenge of authority and, in fact, it was a celebration of it.

Hilliard Davidson High School senior Jacob Shoemaker proved this point when he received a suspension for refusing to leave the classroom to participate in the walkout.

According to school officials, students were told they could participate in the walkout or go to the commons area for an alternative study hall. Shoemaker said he did not want to choose a side so he remained in the classroom instead.

Shoemaker told the Associated Press that school is not the place for divisive politics and to make his statement, he chose not to take sides. So, the 18-year-old was suspended.

School district spokesperson Stacie Raterman said official policy prohibited school officials from leaving Shoemaker unattended in the building for “security reasons,” 10TV reported.

Shoemaker told 10TV that he knew remaining in class would come with consequences and he was prepared to receive whatever punishment he had coming.

When he received the suspension, a friend published a photo of the notice online where it quickly went viral.

“Student refused to follow instructions after being warned repeatedly by several administrators,” the letter said. “Student not permitted on school property.”

The school promptly responded to state that Shoemaker was not suspended for choosing to abstain from the gun control debate. However, as Shoemaker explains, by forcing the students to leave the classroom for a political event—when they are supposed to be in class—he was compelled to take a side by the school and he chose not to do so.

Scott Shoemaker, Jacob’s father told 10TV that he thought the punishment his son received from school was harsh and they had no idea how much attention it would garner them.

To show how politicized the public education system is becoming in America, Shoemaker was not the only one to receive punishment for their views or lack thereof that day.

According to Jerusalem J. Greer, a blogger whose 17-year-old son attends Greenbrier Public School in Greenbrier, Arkansas, her son and two other teens face actual physical harm from the school for participating in the walkout.

“My kid and two other students walked out of their rural, very conservative, public school for 17 minutes today,” said Greer. “They were given two punishment options. They chose corporal punishment. This generation is not playing around.”

As the Daily Beast reports, Greenbier Public Schools “authorizes the use of corporal punishment to be administered in accordance with this policy by the Superintendent or his/her designated staff members who are required to have a state-issued license as a condition of their employment.”

Students are “given an explanation of the reasons for the punishment and are given an opportunity to refute the charges.”

When people questioned why she would let the school physically harm her son over the walkout, Greer said, “They choose this and we supported their choice.”

In the ostensible land of the free, children are swiftly becoming pawns of the establishment. These incidents illustrate the notion that through the public school system, children are being indoctrinated into the two-party paradigm.

What’s more, through this indoctrination, students are being divided and conquered before they become old enough to even challenge the establishment on their own. A bleak scenario indeed.

West Virginia Governor Tells Striking Teachers To Get Back In The Classroom

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) told his state’s striking teachers they “need to be back in the classroom” as he spoke at a series of town halls on Monday.

Speaking and taking questions in Wheeling, Martinsburg and Morgantown throughout the day, Justice urged the state’s educators to end their strike Tuesday and promised he’d establish a task force in the next seven to 10 days to look into some of their concerns.

“I love you … but I’m not happy with you. You should be appreciative of where you are,” Justice said to teachers in Wheeling.

“You need to be back in the classroom,” he said. “The kids need to be back in the classroom.”

The comments come days after Justice faced criticisms that he’s missing in action at the state Capitol. His administration has denied a Freedom of Information Act request to view his calendars and appointment books.

The teachers will continue their strike on Tuesday, despite Justice’s request, union leaders announced at a Monday rally at the Capitol.

West Virginia’s 20,000 teachers have been on strike since Thursday, after Justice offered them a 2 percent pay increase starting this summer, followed by 1 percent increases in 2020 and 2021. But the teachers, who ranked 48th in teacher pay across the U.S. in 2016, say that’s not enough to cover their rising costs of living. Many teachers have reported that they’ve had to take second jobs and yet still live paycheck-to-paycheck with their current salaries. 

Another major concern is that premiums for the state’s employee health plan will rise next year if the state doesn’t fill a $39 million shortfall.

“In West Virginia, we know they weren’t known for having high salaries, but they were known for good health insurance,” Don Scalise, a government and history teacher at Cabell Midland High School, told HuffPost last week. “That used to be something to attract people. Now that’s eroding.”

Justice said at the town halls Monday that his task force would try to address the insurance issue.

He also said he’d like to hold a special session to look into raising the severance tax on oil and gas producers in the state by 2.5 percent, something both sides agree could cover better pay and benefits for teachers, he said. That higher tax could be added as a condition in a bill currently moving through the state’s legislature.

Justice also caught flak for his choice of opening words during the town hall at Spring Mills High School in Martinsburg.

“OK, everybody. Nobody’s going to shoot at me or anything, are you?” he asked the crowd, just over a week after a gunman killed 17 students and adults at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

TVLand Sitcom Mocks Extreme Man-Hating Feminism in the Classroom

Chelsea: So moving on to science, where everyone is valued and appreciated equally, let’s discuss scientific laws. What are some examples of scientific laws? Lily?

Lily: The law of gravity.

Chelsea: Yes! That’s my girl! I mean, woman. No–person. Because you are capable, and that has nothing to do with your gender. Now, who discovered the law of gravity? Miranda?

Miranda: Newton?

Chelsea: Yes, that’s right! Let your voice ring out! And what does that law say? Tiffany?

Gary: She wasn’t even raising her hand!

Chelsea: Who cares? Tiffany?

Gary: I know the answer. Why aren’t you calling on me?

Tiffany: I’m sorry, Gary. Has me not rewarding you and feeding into the patriarchy for two minutes made you uncomfortable? Would you prefer if the women stuck to English and poetry like we’re supposed to? Your time is up. It’s Tiffany’s time now. The law of gravity just brought you back down to Earth! Boom!

Leading Educationalist Predicts That Robots Will Replace Teachers In The Classroom Within A Decade

By Fattima Mahdi Truth Theory

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is finding its way into every industry – including education. We will start to see the rise of intelligent and adaptable AI learning systems in the classroom and this could render traditional academic teaching redundant.

Sir Anthony Seldon is a leading educationalist and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buckingham. Within the next years, he believes that intelligent machines will be prominent in one-to-one learning. Automated teaching could see an end to year groups. Pupils learn in different ways. The robots will be able to help students learn at their own pace using adaptive learning systems. This is believed to be more effective than the current approach in which pupils are taught as part of a class.

“It will open up the possibility of an Eton or Wellington-style education for all,” Sir Anthony said. “Everyone can have the very best teacher and it’s completely personalised; the software you’re working with will be with you throughout your education journey.” He added that “as part of robot-led learning, teachers would adopt the role of “overseers”, monitoring the progress of individual pupils, leading non-academic activities and providing pastoral support.”

This new approach to teaching will undoubtedly have a massive impact on both the role that teachers play in the classroom and how pupils learn. Sheldon has emphasised that “this is beyond anything that we’ve seen in the industrial revolution or since with any other new technology.” Experts are predicting that English, Maths and Science will be at the forefront of machine led-learning. In time, the sophisticated algorithms will also be able to devise teaching for the humanities too.

It is important to note that automation could pose a grave threat to the workforce. Sheldon has warned that “if we get the technology wrong it will end up doing everything for us in the same way that satnavs mean we no longer know how to read maps.”

In the years to come, human skills – like teaching – that make us fundamentally employable could lose their value. As a result, it is possible that the economic model of mass human employment could be left vulnerable.

Edward Snowden: “Knowledge Has To Originate From Somewhere, And That Can’t Be A Classroom.”

In September 2015, Neil deGrasse Tyson interviewed Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower who revealed the mass spying program(s) used across the globe by multiple intelligence agencies, private governments, and more. His revelations had broad and immediate consequences for both the elite they exposed and the now-informed public, who, prior to the leaks, considered government surveillance a conspiracy theory. Leaks continue to expose government surveillance and the tools/technology they use via Snowden and other whistleblowers, document platforms like Wikileaks, and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). As a result, distrust in our governments is at an-all time high, and on a global scale.

All of these leaks have brought the existence of Special Access Programs (SAPs) and Unacknowledged SAPs into the public consciousness. These are programs run by what’s become known as “The Deep State,” or a government within the government, which has also been discussed by multiple political insiders and academics,.

Here is one out of many examples we’ve used many times:

Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people.

From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.

To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day. (source)

Modern Day Education

In the interview, Snowden offers his views on education, which align closely with our own here at CE:

It’s a question of who teaches the untaught? Knowledge has to arise from somewhere. There has to be a fountainhead from which it flows. That can’t be a classroom because the teachers themselves had to learn it from somewhere. Original research, the scientific method, the pursuit of the unknown, and the questioning of accepted conventional wisdom and probing at the unknowns. The fact that the most interesting thing for someone who’s interested in how knowledge is created are the problems that haven’t been solved. It’s not what do we know. It’s what we don’t know.

The interview is lengthy and covers a range of topics, but my focus here is education.

It’s something I’ve always wondered: Who does teach the untaught? When one goes to teacher’s college, or medical school, or to any other institutions to be trained to share knowledge, information, and assistance, they are simply being taught by those who have gone through the same system — a system that is now plagued with corruption and misinformation, and which demands obedience from us, the participants, the people meant to keep this mass machine going and thriving off of our efforts. We simply take in the information and believe it, without doing any probing, questioning, or critical thinking for ourselves.

I think it will be some time before we’re all ready to open our minds to information that doesn’t fit the framework of accepted knowledge.

It reminds me of this recent “fake news” epidemic, in which Facebook has teamed up with Snopes, the Disney Corporation (mainstream media), and more to decide for people what they are able to see on Facebook’s platform and what they are not able to see. We now have outside agencies determining for us what is real and what is fake, rather than us doing it for ourselves. The key is not to censor information, but rather teach people how to think critically and examine sources.

“In our dream we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand.  The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk.  We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or of science.  We are not to raise up among them authors, orators, poets, or men of letters.  We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians.  Nor will we cherish even the humbler ambition to raise up from among them lawyers, doctors, preachers, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply.”

– Rev. Frederick T. Gates, Business Advisor to John D. Rockefeller Sr., 1913

In school, we are simply taught to obey and memorize. If we don’t, we are punished. Each child is required to learn the accepted version of reality in order to fit into the specific mould necessary for us to become “productive” members of society. We are taught to be like everybody else, to never question the information we are given, and to move on and be a “product-full” member of society. Just like television, much of traditional education is simply programming. We are told we must do well in school in order to get a job so we can make money and pay our bills. It has nothing to do with the type of growth a human being needs. Good grades and marks do not signify intelligence. In school we are shown how to obey authority, how the world works, and what intelligence is — and is not.

Modern day education is heavily marketed as a place for us to learn, but is that really what it is? It’s just like many pharmaceutical grade medications — do they really heal, or have we simply been made to believe they do?

Prior to the late 1800s, education was a private practice that took place in private institutions or through home schooling. That all changed in 1902 when John D. Rockefeller created the General Education Board in conjunction with Frederick T. Gates, his close friend and business/personal advisor. The General Education Board was responsible for funding the American public school system, and provided over one hundred million dollars in 1902 while continuing their support beyond 1902. If we follow the money, it becomes clear that the GEB was responsible for the creation of the American public school system.

Does education not play a large role in manipulating the consciousness of human beings? By consciousness manipulation, I mean trying to influence the way that we perceive the environment around us. In order to implement this system, teachers need to teach, and somebody needs to teach the teachers, and somebody needs to teach them, too. It’s time we start questioning the real purpose of education, who exactly is putting human beings through this system, and for what purpose.

One cannot think for themselves in this type of environment. Real education comes from the individual, and has nothing to do with schooling.

“I want a nation of workers, not thinkers.” – John D. Rockefeller

A Real Education

I believe a real education comes from within. It is those who are passionate and curious about this world who will become truly educated, rather than receive the “education” that is used to obtain a piece of paper, so we can earn more pieces of paper in order to live.

Think of a child and how curious they are; the truly educated adult is the one who has maintained that curiosity and wonder.

All of the information presented in school can be accessed through the library. Does our continued support of the educational system, therefore, really stem from an innate desire to learn, or are we simply motivated by the idea of a good life? Do we simply want to fit in, make money, and get a job that people respect?

Forcing children through this system, into their early adulthood with post-secondary education, leaves them with no time to learn about our world because they are kept busy learning what the government wants us to learn.

We are almost at a point where it seems we’ve completely lost our critical thinking and questioning ability; the moment one questions something that is accepted by society, like eating meat for example, or the official story behind 9/11, one is instantly met with criticism and ridicule from people who haven’t bothered to research these issues for themselves.

The good news is that, with the birth of multiple social media platforms, the public now has access to information and sources that were not available to them before. We’ve seen billions of eyes viewing some sensitive information, which means there is something important happening. It means that millions of people are starting to question the world around them. This simple questioning opens the door to investigation, critical thinking, and answers. To question what mainstream media says, to question what governments tell us, as Snowden has alluded to so many times, is the duty of a true patriot.

These things are definitely not learned in the classroom, and there’s no doubt that education is key to changing our world, but school as we know it is not.

“Never confuse education with intelligence.”

– Albert Einstein
