SPLC and NEA v. Parents and Kids

By Larry Sand
The disgraceful Southern Poverty Law Center is now trying to keep poor parents from getting their kids out of awful schools. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which regularly labels organizations whose politics they disagree with as “Hate Groups,” has jumped head-first into the school choice fray. Just a few weeks ago, they began Public Funds...

Teacher Union Agenda Dysphoria 

By Larry Sand
Alberta teachers union pushes a radical sexual agenda on kids.  Earlier this year, several doctors tore into new guidelines that promote transgenderism in the Canadian province of Alberta.

CTA, Transgender Clownfish and Our Children

By Larry Sand
The very creepy sexualization of young children, a part of the teachers unions’ progressive agenda, goes on unabated.

The NEA’s Influence on Sex Education Policy

By Larry Sand
NEA’s reprehensible sexual agenda goes on unabated and the MSM is MIA. At a time when teachers’ unions are battling for their collective bargaining lives, courtesy of Governors Scott Walker, Chris Christie, John Kasich et al., it’s hard to go a day without reading a newspaper account of the latest union news.
