Texas Schools Receive Exact Online Threat Oregon School Did Before Shooting

A message threatening students on Austin, Texas, and nearby campuses was posted on a 4chan r9k message board on Monday afternoon. The threat, like the one for schools in the northwest before the mass murders, raises once again the concern of campus safety and campus carry and second amendment issues, but also free speech, hate speech, and the potential policing and government regulation of such speech.The message was almost identical to one left on a 4chan message board the day before the shootings at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. Law enforcement officials in Austin have ruled out the threat saying it is not credible.

Obama: Arne Duncan Has ‘Delivered Some Incredible Results’

Obama’s comments appear to be a reference to the Common Core standards – though he does not call the reform by name, likely because the unpopular initiative is now often described as “toxic” and “poisonous.” The president nevertheless adopts the usual pro-Common Core position that the nationalized standards are higher or more rigorous than other standards – although there is no independent research that validates that claim.

Chicago Public Schools Admits to Inflating Graduation Rates for Four Years

Administrators of the Chicago Public Schools were forced to lower the last four years’ graduation rates after admitting they inflated the passing rates and fudged the number of dropouts. The schools’ Inspector General had raised the alarm over the falsified stats early this year, but the district took no action until October. That was five months after Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel won re-election, in part, because he used the false statistics as a campaign issue.

Ahmed Mohamed’s School Discipline Problems Started Long Before His ‘Clock’

Ahmed Mohamed’s school discipline problems started long before bringing a homemade suitcase clock accused of being a “hoax bomb” into a Texas public school.
