High school uses ‘hateful’ blackface poster to taunt basketball star

WTF?!! Some educators need to be losing their jobs and some kids need to stripped from what ever team or activity they participate in while their asses serve out daily detention for the rest of the school year.

Yes, the kids need to apologize but an apology on its own won’t cut it. They need to face real and dire consequences or the principal should be fired and drummed out of education forever.

University snow day descends into ‘all out war’ between cops and students

Officers can be seen on video using tear gas and compressed air guns on the students, which were reportedly loaded with “pepper balls.” The non-lethal projectiles are basically paintball pellets filled with pepper spray.

It’s unclear whether the cops were campus police or from the Morgantown Police Department. Students were allegedly throwing beer bottles and other debris at them.

…“Kids having fun on a snow day, the police started the problems and caused the situation to escalate,” tweeted one person in response to WVU’s statement. “The use of tear gas was unacceptable! Let the kids sled and keep them safe, we don’t need another Kent State!”

Duke official steps down after telling students to speak English

The director of graduate studies for a Duke University School of Medicine department stepped down Saturday after screenshots of an email reported to be from her circulated on social media, suggesting students refrain from speaking Chinese to “improve their English.”

…Two faculty members approached Neely to express disappointment that first-year students were speaking Chinese in student study and lounge areas.

…”I encourage you to commit to using English 100 percent of the time” on campus or in professional settings, the email states.

…”They were disappointed that these students were not taking the opportunity to improve their English and were being so impolite as to have a conversation that not everyone on the floor could understand,” the email reads.

…”To be clear,” [Medical school dean Mary E. Klotman] wrote, “there is absolutely no restriction or limitation on the language you use to converse and communicate with each other. Your career opportunities and recommendations will not in any way be influenced by the language you use outside the classroom.”

Smitherman: Administrators have been working on strategies for several students

Smitherman on Wednesday apologized for misusing her insurance to pay for the 15-year-old’s medical care, and the Elwood Community School Corp. board of trustees pledged its continued support for her.

…The matter already has been resolved through an Agreement for Withheld Prosecution, also signed on Wednesday with the Madison County Prosecutor’s Office, dismissing the charges as long as Smitherman is not arrested in the coming 12 months.

Smitherman and her husband, Steve, started helping out the teen and his guardian, Charles Gerard, 97, a great-uncle, according to the probable cause affidavit. That assistance included buying clothing for the boy and cleaning the home in the 400 block of South 33rd Street.

The guardian was not home at the time she picked up the student Jan. 9, so she did not ask for consent, Smitherman said.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Smitherman told investigators she had avoided reporting the boy’s living conditions to the Indiana Department of Child of Child Services because she did not want him placed in foster care.
