A mob on Friday attacked the police with bow and arrow and blocked the arterial Ausgram-Guskara Road in protest against detention of three school teachers and alleged manhandling of them at Guskara in Burdwan district.A police officer said some of the policemen were injured when a mob, accompanying some teachers of a local high school and it’s managing committee members, suddenly attacked the cops during altercation at the Guskara police station.

As police dispersed the mob and detained three of the teachers on charge of instigating the mob and preventing a public servant from discharging duty, it moved to nearby Guskara-Ausgram Road and blocked the road.

A section of the crowd also attacked the policemen with bows and arrows as a force tried to lift the blockade, the officer said.

The blockade, which went on for several hours, was lifted after police released the three teachers and promised to look into charges of high-handednes against the IC of Guskara police station.

Locals alleged 15 teacherz and 20 students were injured in police lathicharge during the agitation but the police denied there was any lathicharge.

Superintendent of Police Kunal Agarwal said police were looking into the allegations of highhandedness and action would be taken if anyone was found guilty.

The teachers and locals alleged police did not take action to stop unathorised construction near the school gate.

A black teacher asked her students to defend the Ku Klux Klan—and was promptly suspended — Quartz

The assignment was simple—to write a persuasive essay defending the actions of the Ku Klux Klan—yet the reactions to it were anything but. Parents of the 12- t0 14-year-old students who were given the essay prompt at the Business and Economics Academy of Milwaukee (BEAM), a charter school in Wisconsin, were startled enough by the…

‘To Be White Is to Be Racist.’ Oklahoma Teacher’s Race Lecture Divides

A high school teacher in Oklahoma sparked a controversy at his school when he told students in a discussion of race that “to be white is to be racist, period.”

“Am I racist? And I say, yeah. I don’t want to be. It’s not like I choose to be racist, but do I do things because of the way I was raised?” the unnamed teacher says in an audio recording made by one of his students who was offended by the lecture.

Some students, like the one who made the recording, were upset by the class, and Norman Public Schools Superintendent Joseph Siano said the situation was “poorly handled.”

“While discussing a variety of philosophical perspectives on culture, race and ethics, a teacher was attempting to convey to students in an elective philosophy course a perspective that had been shared at a university lecture he had attended,” Siano said in a statement, the Huffington Post reports. “We regret that the discussion was poorly handled.”

Other students, however, have begun demonstrating in support of the teacher, or at least in support of his attempt to tackle thorny issues.

“What has been reported in the news doesn’t accurately portray what happened in our philosophy class, nor does it reflect what we believe in at our school,” a student who attended both the class and the demonstration said in a statement to The Huffington Post. “The information was taken out of context and we believe it is important to have serious and thoughtful discussions about institutional racism in order to change history and promote exclusivity.”

Is Johnny Manziel A Case Of “Talent” Afflueza?

 

News from Dallas today from the Dad of a young man, a young football player who is in trouble. This young man was a star player back throughout his youth. It appears that Johnny has been so spoiled throughout his school years that he has a history of misbehaving and him not getting personally slapped up side the head for it. Bill Murray once said on a talk show that he “couldn’t believe that he has rich kids living in his house”, I thought that was a humorous statement, we have all seen how some of these comics (the ‘privileged’ kids) act. You notice how one generation labors hard, earns the dollars, the next generation whom have worked for nothing have their pathetic noses in the air? But folks, it is not just the kids of the very wealthy or the ‘wannabe wealthy’ that can be brought up believing they are in a class above the everyday type people whom have afflueza children.

 

There is one exception to this rule that I am aware of, as most of us are, and that is what I call a talent afflueza condition. If a child is found to be very gifted in pretty much anything from physical sports, chess, piano, or just knockout looks many tend to be treated ‘different’ than the children around them, these children become more ‘valuable’. Most of us just quietly watched the adults act like fawning fools when a kid has real talent, or their Daddy’s had money. Johnny Manziel’s  Dad is quoted as saying that his son would not see his next birthday if he doesn’t get help. Johnny it seems has a bit of a problem holding his drink and with holding his manners with some young ladies. Parents and Teachers/Administrators, you are not doing a child any favors when you coddle their misbehavior, in many cases you are destroying them. Kids like Johnny (I do mean at 23, right now) badly need to be slapped with a bout of ‘grow the hell up’ right now before it is to late. Hopefully this young man can get the help he evidently needs before he ends up crashed and burned.

Maturity: Have I Ever Been Guilty Of It (Written On 7-4-15)

 

Today Our Nation turns 239 years of age. I am of the generations of Americans who in 1976 on this date was 19 years old. 1976 Was Our Nations 200th birthday. Now, in this time era I am 58 years old. All of you folks who are of an age where you can remember 1976, do the memories of how you were raised back then ever haunt you? The maturity as you see maturity today, how were the adults in your life toward you? I am speaking of at home, in the neighborhoods, churches, schools? Just something I would like you to chew on while you hopefully continue reading the post.

 

1976, I was married with one child and another in the oven getting ready to say howdy, I was 19 and immature and ignorant as a young man could be. Maturity, I sure do wish I and my Bride at the time could have had more of it. That alone would not have been able to save that marriage, but it sure wouldn’t have hurt matters any. When your parents, guardians, and adults at your schools fail to have the young people ready for the real world they are getting ready to step into, they/we have failed those young people. Is this a lack of maturity, morality, caring, or love, on the adults part? When the parents, teachers, administrators, churches, and neighborhoods fail to train and care for the little eyes watching us, our lack of maturity and caring is plainly on display. When you are 18 and have your fresh new Diploma in your hand, now what? It is difficult to survive in the real world with little or no education, technical training, or preparedness training by the ones who are supposed to be the grownups.

 

39 Years ago today I still had good health, but really no dreams. Everyday was about getting enough hours on my near minimum wage jobs to buy the grocery’s and pay the rent. Today at 58 my health has been better and I have been blessed with a life time of memories, good and bad. But I do know this, the immaturity of a parental figure, of teachers, coaches, and many other adults involved with the lives of a child, stays with the child for life.

 

I look back at the good memories and I try to forget the bad ones of the things done to me by supposed caring adults. Do you know the feeling of how you don’t want to be like your father figure when you grow up, then have to face the facts, in many ways you were worse? My dad died in December of 93, I was 37. Twenty plus years have passed now, his immaturity, his hate, the hurts are all written in stone now, yet the memories still invade my thoughts sometimes. My own mistakes though, my own lack of maturity, of grownup actions, at times these haunt me day and night.

 

Maturity matters so very much in each and every one of us. Teaching maturity, respect and kindness to our children and our grandchildren through our examples is the least we can do for them. Teachers, now there is a tough job for any poor Soul to try. There are many good teachers and most of the ones in my life I had to give a C too. There are three or four that stand out in my memories as adults who actually cared and tried to help kids at lest learn the class material well enough to be passed onto the next grade or level. Most you could tell were just putting in their shift, any job can get old but around kids though they absorb the caring or lack there of from these adults. So yes there were some A Teachers and I still remember their names and their faces. Unfortunately it seems that every school is just like every other business, there are some employees/teachers that should be arrested, not awarded with a pay check and then a pension. Dang, that sounds like Wall Street some doesn’t it?

 

I have a question for you, when you finished high school were you ready/prepared to step into the adult world? Did you really have a clue about real life? If you were ready, if you really did have a clue about survival, congratulations, I didn’t. Maturity is a huge part of society. Our children will find it difficult to grow and prosper as a civilized society if our children are not treated fairly by us now. In trying to always be honest with you I had a parent who really needed to work on his caring skills but I was blessed with one great parent. My opinion of some of the teachers I had as well as a few principles and administrators who were a pathetic joke as far as even being decent human beings toward me. It’s difficult to understand how some people came up with the idea that they should go into the education field is beyond me. Then again how many young folks top concern when they spread their legs is how ready they are to lovingly raise little Johnny and little Jill?

 

Teaching maturity to our children by our examples helps give them a huge crucial building block toward having a happy productive life. When we and the school systems fail to act like intelligent adults we condemn our own children to ignorance, depression, poverty, and broken homes. Maturity, morality, kindness, things taught, things that all decent human beings need to have nurtured into them as children.  Instead we use, abuse, and discard and treat them like computerized toilet paper. Many children grow up to be abusers, that is all they know, so with each generation many people commit even greater sins than their fathers. Maturity matters, caring matters, love matters, do the children matter?

 

 

 

Daughters Of The Cloth

Sisters of The Cloth

Do not hang your head in doubt or shame

Timothy, Paul’s Scribe wrote those words

Not from the Apostle’s hand have they came .

Even now in our so called modern days

Against the Daughters of The Cloth

Many unknowing still rant and rave

Many even today still close their eyes

To us, why their words ever came.

People, look around the world

See how God’s daughters are forced into Burkhas

Beheaded and stoned if to a man they dare say a word

Do you really think God’s Church could have grown

If the Apostles had condoned the women

To stand in front of the ignorant egotistical men.

The Lord Himself told us all so very plain

In the last days, before to us once again He came

His Sons and Daughters would prophesy, in His Name

Friend, son, do not slander a Daughter of God

If She is teaching Scripture in His Holy Name.
