High school “mean girls” fake sexual assault

boystairs.jpg

In this “Me Too” era, men are being held accountable for sexual misconduct, whether it be unwanted comments, harassment, abuse, or assault. But at least one young man has been punished for things he didn’t even do.

A boy at Seneca Valley High School in Harmony, Pennsylvania, has endured more than a year of hell, after five girls who “didn’t like to look at him” fabricated stories of sexual abuse and fed their lies to school officials, who bought it hook, line, and sinker. Later admitting to conspiring against their classmate, one girl admitted it was all a farce.

But the damage was already done. After the girls’ allegations came to light, the entire school turned on him, ostracizing him and placing “predator” stickers on his back. He was bullied to the point of his parents withdrawing him, to homeschool.

The parents of the boy, who is only identified as T.F., filed a lawsuit against the school, Seneca Valley School district, and the parents of the girls involved, citing multiple court appearances, the losing of their son’s job, juvenile detention, and other hardships he faced, just because some girls didn’t like his face.

The school district defends its actions at the time, reportedly refusing to apologize to T.F. and his family, and insisting the lawsuit against them “is without merit.” So a boy’s life was destroyed, no big deal.

Faculty and students alike at Seneca Valley High School are suddenly rallying around T.F. (who, wisely, will not be returning to their school), inventing hashtags in support of him, wearing t-shirts with his name, and cheering for him at football games he probably isn’t even attending. One has to wonder where these students were when he was being bullied, in the first place.

Mob mentality is at its height in places like schools, when hundreds of students are crowded together and feed off one another, causing riots, collectively singling out the weak from the herd to pick to death. It’s incredibly cruel, and incredibly unnatural. It’s no secret that to be a white male in this country is one of the worst things to be, right now, when you can be vilified merely if a girl looks at you the wrong way. If this is what we see in our schools, what will it be like when this generation is running our country?

The girls appear to be suffering no direct consequences, as the school refuses to mar their academic records with the information, and the district attorney’s office won’t prosecute them.

Teacher accused of sexting with student

A high school English teacher in New Jersey is in trouble after being accused of sending nude pictures to and engaging sexually explicit conversations with a 17-year-old male student.

According to Somerset County Police, 29-year-old Michelina Aichele, of Hillsborough, was arrested October 5 and charged with second-degree endangering the welfare of a child. She’s currently in Somerset County Jail, pending a detention hearing. She has been suspended from her job at Montgomery Township High School (where she makes roughly $70,000 a year) since October 4 – and as we’ve seen before, there’s a good chance it’s a “paid suspension,” pending the outcome of the investigation. Of course, we should be grateful there *is* an investigation, as we also know how many allegations are swept under the rug, instead.

Transgender student locked out of a lockdown drill

lgbt.jpg

It’s nice to know that in the event of a true emergency, school officials will focus on what really matters: figuring out where to stick the transgender kid.

A transgender girl was allegedly barred from entering both the girls’ and boys’ locker rooms during a lockdown drill at her middle school in Stafford County, Virginia. She says she was forced to sit alone on the bleachers while the remainder of her physical education class took shelter in the locker rooms.

First of all, I didn’t realize that lockdown drills involved removal of clothing or anything else that may take place in locker rooms during normal school time. Wait, they don’t? So what did it matter where this kid went? Pull her into a room, and protect her.

In a place (meaning, public schools) where LGBT issues are typically discussed openly and non-conforming individuals are supported and often encouraged, the fact that things like this are still happening is truly mindboggling. This wasn’t even an issue of “Which bathroom should they use?” This was merely an issue of protecting a child’s life.

The next time you think you’re sending your child off to a place where those entrusted with their well being and safety will actually *care* about their well being and safety, think again. Because maybe next time, it won’t be a drill. Many schools don’t make the distinction between a “practice run” and a real emergency. And maybe next time they’ll deliberate where to put little Jimmy because he’s in the hallway between two classrooms (“You take him!” “No, *you* take him!”), or maybe Susan is throwing up so they moved her to the bathroom but now there’s an active shooter and her teacher hurriedly locks the classroom door, and “Where’s Susan? Oh, I’m sure she’s fine.”

Supposedly this transgender student had a teacher with them, as if this makes things all better. Good luck finding a teacher to be a sitting duck during an actual emergency. There are heroes, but there are also selfish idiots. Do you know which one is in your child’s classroom?

Minnesota teacher tweets about killing Brett Kavanaugh

minntweet

No matter where you stand on the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court debate, I’d hope you wouldn’t be calling for anyone’s death (although death threats have unfortunately been reported from both sides). Still worse, of course, would be to think that your own child’s teacher would advocate for the murder of someone else.

An unnamed special education teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave following a now-deleted (but still immortal, because this *is* the internet, after all) tweet alluding to the killing of now-Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh, Saturday evening after his swearing in. Said female teacher was listed as an instructor at Intermediate School District 917’s Alliance Education Center, in Rosemount, Minnesota.

District superintendent Mark Zuzek issued this statement via the district website:

October 8, 2018,

Over the weekend, the district has received a complaint regarding an employee.  The employee has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. 

Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter. 

Mark A. Zuzek

Superintendent

As no criminal charges have been filed, the instructor’s name has not been released, though some news sources report it as Samantha Ness.

The tweet in question read: “So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?”

She then followed up the tweet with, ““Brett kavanaugh will be dealing with death threats for the rest of his life being on the Supreme Court. I doubt my mid-west ass is a real threat.” Classy.

The district website also defines itself as follows: “District 917 serves students needing low incidence special education services from our member school districts in the southeastern Twin Cities metropolitan area.” Mark Zuzek confirmed they have had to deal with many parent complaints since the incident was reported.

The district’s Facebook page has since received countless comments calling for the immediate firing of Ness, but this is pretty much impossible, because of those oh-so-necessary teacher’s unions that protect even the most despicable of humanity.

Alliance Education Center provides services through the SUN program (Students with Unique Needs) for those between the ages of 5 and 21, serving those with: “Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Cognitive Disabilities, Emotional Behavioral Disorders, and other disabilities as appropriate.”

What’s that about your children’s teachers being great examples and espousing only the highest morals and values? Oh, I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over the death threats.

School bus driver lets children take the wheel

joanna_mcatee_mug

Children in Indiana got the trip of a lifetime, while their school bus driver got a trip to the unemployment line… If she doesn’t wind up in prison, that is.

Joandrea McAtee, 27, a school bus driver for schools in Porter Township, Indiana, was fired, and subsequently arrested, after video emerged of her allowing students – it’s alleged three were involved, ages 11, 13, and 17 – to drive the bus on their way home from school. Passengers captured the driving lessons on video, and their parents immediately alerted school officials.

“Don’t you tell no other adults,” McAtee tells one child, while in another video a woman is heard saying, “it’s all good. It’s all good. I’m letting her stop at Michael’s stop.”

McAtee was then taken into police custody as she arrived at the bus depot to pick up her final paycheck. She was charged with neglect of a dependent (that’s it???). The “investigation” is still ongoing.

Porter Township is a rural community a little more than an hour from Chicago. The bus slowly made its way down Lourdes Street with a small girl at the helm, most likely from Boone Grove middle school. Keep in mind that most school buses either don’t have seat belts, or don’t enforce their use.

The high cost of sexual assault in schools

As if it weren’t enough that the victims of sexual assault in schools carry their pain and trauma into adulthood and often for the rest of their lives, school districts often face the payment of huge settlements to try and make up for the placement of a pervert in the classroom.

Cherry Creek School District in Arapahoe County, Colorado, has reached a $11.5 million settlement with five victims of abuse by one Brian Vasquez, a 34-year-old former social studies teacher at Prairie Middle School. He has pled guilty to charges of sexual abuse and attempted sexual abuse, and according to officials, has admitted to sending explicit text messages to all five victims and having sex with at least two of them.

That’s not all: it emerged that one victim attempted, way back in 2013, to report the abuse to school officials, including a principal and counselor, who did nothing with the information. Both were indicted on misdemeanor charges for failing to report the allegations to police. It’s alleged that at the time the victim made the allegations, she was not only forced to recant her statements and apologize to her abuser, but was then suspended from school.

Cherry Creek School District encompasses 65 schools in the Denver/Aurora area. In their budget report they project the per-student spending for the 2018-2019 school year to average about $8,100. The $11.5 million settlement paid to the 5 victims equates to the education budget for over 1400 students within the district. Two million dollars will come from the district’s insurance policy (because, hey, you’ve got to be prepared for things like this, am I right?), and the remaining $9.5 million will come from budget reserves.

Prairie Middle School has received a poor grade of 3/10 from GreatSchools, citing test scores well below the national average and lack of support for lower income children (who make up about 75% of the student body). Parent feedback about the school is mixed.

Vasquez will be sentenced later this week, where he faces up to 40 years in prison. He taught at Prairie Middle School for seven years. Prior to that, he worked in two other Colorado school districts.

Vasquez has two young children.

Teachers’ Unions Play Politics

teacherprotest.jpg

We’re coming upon the time of year when parents and children alike obsess over which teacher(s) they will receive for the upcoming school term. There is no real implied choice in the matter; similar to your “zoned school,” most families don’t search beyond what’s handed to them, so if a student doesn’t mesh well with their instructor, it’s “too bad, Jimmy, better luck next year.”

But, on the rare chance your child’s teacher isn’t a pedophile or serial public pooper, and doesn’t have anger management issues, perhaps you’ll gloat about what a wonderful person they are. “He shares my values,” you may say, or “She attends my church.” “We’re both supporting _____ in the Senate race.” This, you tell yourself, is the perfect person to replace you during the average of 8 hours a day your impressionable youngster is in school.

You would be wrong.

Regardless of a teacher’s political, religious, or otherwise ideological views, they are subject to the all-powerful organization known as the teacher’s union, which has overwhelmingly only one agenda.

Whether you agree or not with a union supporting certain political parties, the fact that teacher’s unions have in recent years given 94% of political contributions to liberal candidates and organizations. This money is not solely from donations, but from dues paid by those illustrious, upstanding teachers at a school near you.

Besides your standard Senate candidates and, of course, Hillary Clinton, NEA (National Education Association) and AFT (American Federation of Teachers), the two largest teachers’ unions in the United States, have contributed to many decidedly one-sided organizations, including but not limited to: the Human Rights Campaign (national group working for “working for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights”); the Center for American Progress (progressive think tank led by former Clinton and Obama aides); and Jesse Jackson’s “Rainbow Push Coalition” and Al Sharpton’s “National Action Network.”

Millions upon millions of dollars are spent by these unions every year to support candidates, policies, and organizations on just one side of the aisle. And what’s more, from 2004 to 2016, their donations grew from $4.3 million to more than $32 million. What’s more, Democratic bigshots like Hillary Clinton are welcome faces at union events; Clinton received the AFT’s “Women’s Rights Award” on Friday, and the response to her presence at the Pittsburgh event was akin to teenyboppers at a Justin Bieber concert.

“But that’s just the union,” you protest, still trying to remain in denial. “They don’t represent the values of OUR teachers!” Oh, really? Then who DO they represent? And why are they taking their money? The truth is, teachers listen to their union leaders, and believe they will fight for them to have less time with your kids and more money for what is essentially glorified babysitting, for much of the school day. If union leaders tell them to vote one way, chances are, they will. Because just like they are teaching your kids, day in and day out, to be mindless automatons dependent on someone else to tell them what’s in their best interest, teachers will often blindly follow their leaders. In fact, they are more likely to revere their local union leaders over their school principal.

So before you recommend your child’s teacher for canonization, perhaps you’d best examine where their loyalties really lie.
