The National Pulse: Mother Denied Parental Rights over Transgender Teen Appeals Court Ruling

Last month, Dr. Effrem described the bizarre and dangerous Minnesota federal court decision that “emancipated” a minor child from his mother, thereby denying her inherent parental right to direct the academic, medical, and other aspects of the care and upbringing of her own son — all without any of the due process normally involved in such situations.

The story continues:

According to the Minnesota Child Protection League (CPL), an organization which has been supporting Ms. Calgaro’s efforts, attorneys for the district made the situation painfully worse:

Attorneys for the school district went on to state that, since Calgaro had filed a lawsuit to assert her parental rights, her request should be denied in order to protect her son from “further harm.”  Consider that. The school administration is empowered to decide that Calgaro is harmful to her son because she challenged the violation of her parental rights in court.

The National Pulse: Another Common Core Apologist Opts Out of Trump Admin Job

Alan Hubbard took his hat out of the ring to be considered for Deputy Secretary of Education!

Hubbard is a strong ally of both Betsy DeVos and the pro-Common Core American Federation for Children, as well as working closely Jeb Bush and with disgraced former Indiana and Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett.

We will reiterate our list of excellent potential choices for the deputy secretary job that will fight Common Core and federal overreach in education:

This bill is supported by all of the usual data grabbing suspects that see students merely as links in the labor market supply chain and education merely as workforce skills development. This includes the Workforce Data Quality Campaign, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable.

The National Pulse: Parents BEWARE: Common Core Tests Now Include Invasive Surveys

 

Dr. Karen Effrem addresses the frightening ramifications of a “brave new world” outlook.

Large national organizations like the National Association of State Boards of Education and the American School Counselors Association have already admitted that one of the main purposes of the Common Core standards and the aligned testing is to mold and profile students’ attitudes, beliefs, and behavior — through what’s called social emotional learning (SEL) or “21st Century Skills.” Can we as a nation, continue to survive as a constitutional republic, if our children are being deemed worthy or not through a “brave new world,” outlook?
