Teacher Stabbed by Man Claiming to be Associated with ISIS in Aubervilliers, France … Jihadist Stated, ‘This is a Warning, This is Only the Beginning’ (Update: Hoax, Teacher Made Up Story)
A teacher was attacked by a man claiming to be associated with ISIS on Monday at the Jean Perrin pre-school in the town of Aubervilliers, northeast of Paris. The 45 year old male victim was alone in his classroom at the kindergarten in the northern suburb of Aubervilliers, when the assailant burst in at around 7.30am local time. The injuries are reported to be non-life threatening. The attacker was wearing overalls and a balaclava, fled the scene and is currently being hunted by police. The investigation is being led by anti-terror officers. Previously, jihadists have also made specific threats against teachers in France, claiming they were “enemies of Allah” and that schools cultivated “ignorance and moral corruption” in children. According to a statement from Bobigny district prosecutor’s office, the attacker said, “This is a warning, this is only the beginning.”
A teacher was attacked and injured in a Paris suburb Monday by a man claiming to be associated with the ISIS terror group, French police said.
Sky News reported that the victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the incident, which is being investigated by anti-terror police.
The Agence France-Presse news agency reported that the teacher was stabbed in the side and the throat while preparing for class at the Jean Perrin pre-school in the town of Aubervilliers, northeast of Paris. Sky reported that the assailant, who remained at large, was carrying a knife and a pair of scissors.
AFP, citing a witness who works at the school, reported that the suspect was dressed in painter’s overalls, gloves and a ski mask. He arrived in the classroom without a weapon, but grabbed one that was lying around in the classroom. According to the witness, the attacker said, “This is Daesh. This is a warning.” Daesh is the Arabic acronym for ISIS
Turns out this idiot made up the entire story so that he could have himself transferred. Where, to a mental institution?
The French authorities said on Monday that a teacher who claimed to have been stabbed with scissors and a box cutter at a preschool near Paris had fabricated the story.
A police official in Aubervilliers confirmed that the teacher, who has not been identified, admitted to having invented the assault by a supporter of the Islamic State at the Jean Perrin preschool in Aubervilliers, a northern suburb of Paris.
It “was a fake attempt, done so that he could have himself transferred” to another job, the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak to reporters about the episode.
A spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office, Agnès Thibault-Lecuivre, said, “He wounded himself alone in his classroom, before the children arrived,” in what she called the first such instance in France. She said the preschool teacher, 45, was in the hospital for his wounds, which were not life-threatening, and was being questioned further.
HOW COULD ANY BUS DRIVER BE SO OBLIVIOUS AND BE ALLOWED TO DRIVE A BUS FULL OF CHILDREN?
6 year old Chelsea Klepzig is lucky to be alive after being dragged for nearly a mile by a school bus in Forsyth County, North Carolina. According to Chelsea’s parents, the first grader at Union Cross Elementary School, was dragged down Pine Meadow Drive by her school bus after the bus driver closed the door on her arm as the 6 year old got off the bus. Not only did the cluless bus driver not see the little girl stuck in the door, but they also paid no attention to the flashing lights of Estrella Klepzig, Chelsea’s grandmother, who was following the bus trying to get his attention. Thankfully, the bus finally stopped. Chelsea Klepzig suffered only minor injuries.
A child was dragged by a school bus for nearly a mile in Forsyth County on Monday afternoon.
According to Highway Patrol, the incident was dispatched as a “child drug by school bus” at 3:43 p.m. Monday.
Chelsea Klepzig, 6, a first grader at Union Cross Elementary School, was dragged down Pine Meadow Drive by her school bus.
Chelsea’s parents say her grandmother was waiting for Chelsea to get off the bus when the bus driver closed the door on her arm.
On Tuesday, Theo Helm, chief of staff with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, commented on the incident and stated, first and foremost they are “so thankful the student is OK and it was not worse.” According to accounts, the bus driver was a substitute bus driver employed by the school system since 2000 and he has been suspended without pay and recommended for dismissal. You think!!!
Two Edina, MN Elementary Schools Hire Recess Consultant … Phrases like, “Hey, you’re out!” are replaced with “good job” or “nice try.”
FROM THE YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME FILES …
Two Edina elementary schools have hired a recess consultant to police the politics of the playground. Of course they are going to do it in a PC manner. What has this country and more importantly our schools become? So this is the role of the recess consultant to make recess more inclusive and beneficial to children and more structured and if phrases like, “Hey, you’re out!” are replaced with “good job” or “nice try.” GOOD GRIEF!!! All these fools are doing is creating generations of kids who have no ability to cope or adapt to tough situations. Sheltering children is not the answer folks. Because its all about making everyone feel good. No wonder kids cannot deal with difficult situations anymore. Although I must admit, I was shocked that recess even exists anymore.
Two Edina elementary schools, worried about the politics of the playground, are taking an unusual step to police it: They have hired a recess consultant.
Some parents have welcomed the arrival of the firm Playworks, which says recess can be more inclusive and beneficial to children if it’s more structured and if phrases like, “Hey, you’re out!” are replaced with “good job” or “nice try.”
But some of the kids at Concord and Normandale Elementary say they are confused, or that the consultants are ruining their play time.
“The philosophy of Playworks does not fit Concord,” said Kathy Sandven, a parent of twin boys who attend the school. “It is a structured philosophy — an intervention philosophy — not allowing kids for free play.”
The two schools have joined a growing number of districts that have hired consultants to remake the playground experience into more structured and inclusive play time. The games and activities, like four square and jumping rope, are overseen by adults and designed to reduce disciplinary problems while ensuring that no children are left out.
READING, WRITING AND INDOCTRINATION … , HOW CAN SO MANY OF OUR YOUTH BE SO PATHETICALLY UNEDUCATED IN AMERICA’S HISTORY?
How is it possible that 8th graders could know so little about United States history? According to the Nation’s Report Card released by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), only 18% of 8th graders are proficient in US History. UNREAL. Think about that, a pathetic 18%. Oh, but wait, 23% were proficient in civics, otherwise known as social studies, in day’s past. Not only is that embarrassing for our public schools, it should also be considered criminal. What exactly are our schools teaching children? That’s right, schools don’t educate anymore, they indoctrinate. And of course sadly, that what today’s liberal educators are teaching the children today of US history is a “Hate America first” agenda.
Results of the “Nation’s Report Card” released this week by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) show that only 18 percent of 8th-graders are “proficient” or above in U.S. history, and only 23 percent are proficient in civics.
Despite hundreds of billions of dollars poured into education programs in the United States via the U.S. Department of Education, the “Nation’s Report Card” states that 8th-graders’ average NAEP scores in U.S. History, Geography, and Civics demonstrated no significant change since 2010 when students were last assessed. In geography, just 27 percent of U.S. 8th-graders performed at or above the proficiency level on the NAEP assessments.
Among white, black, Hispanic, and Asian students, Asians scored highest, with 33 percent proficient in U.S. History, 44 percent in geography, and 40 percent in Civics. White students are at 26 percent proficiency level in U.S. History, 39 percent in geography, and 32 percent in civics. Only 6 percent of black students scored at the proficient level in U.S. History, 7 percent in geography, and 9 percent in civics, while Hispanics were at 8 percent, 11 percent, and 12 percent, respectively.
A breakdown between students who attend public versus private schools finds that only 17 percent of 8th-graders who attend public school reached the proficiency level in U.S. History, 25 percent in geography, and 22 percent in civics, while 31 percent of those students assessed who attend private schools were proficient at U.S. History, 44 percent at geography, and 38 percent at civics.
“Despite hundreds of billions of dollars poured into education programs in the United States via the US Department of Education, the ‘Nation’s Report Card’ states that 8th-graders’ average NAEP scores in US History, Geography, and Civics demonstrated no significant change since 2010 when students were last assessed.” Just think of all the money that Obama and the Democrat Party have poured into the teachers… (Ahem!) I was gonna say teachers union; I mean education.
The stimulus bill alone sent the teachers unions untold billions of dollars. It was disguised money. They were telling us it was going to education, to rebuild schools and roads and bridges. But we now know, looking back, that the vast majority of the money went to teachers unions, part of the Democrat Party’s very well-constructed money-laundering scheme using the unions to do so. (interruption) What? How’s that work? It’s very simple.
Florida Police Investigate Whether Kiss Exchanged By 7 Year Old Classmates Was “Unnatural And Lascivious”
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … I HOPE THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS HAS RUN OUT BETWEEN MY KISS WITH HEIDI UNDER THE PIANO IN 3RD GRADE …
Has this country lost it’s collective ever-loving mind? As reported at The Smoking Gun, the Florida police actually investigated a kiss, OMG on the lips, between two 7 year old elementary school classmates. Get this, the police were trying to determine whether the act amounted to “lewd and lascivious” behavior. Head shaking, simply head shaking. What happened to the country I grew up in when a Johnny kissed Susie was simply Johnny kissing Susie? The idea that anyone would think that two 7 year old’s kissing was a “lewd and lascivious” act needs their heads and dirty minds examined.
Maybe the police would like to focus their efforts on investigations of lewd acts when an adult perpetrates it on a child or there is at least some kind of evil or criminal intent, not a simple kiss between children.
Florida police last week investigated whether a kiss exchanged by seven-year-old elementary students amounted to “lewd and lascivious” behavior, according to an incident report.
Responding to “allegations” that the children kissed “on the lips” during class last Tuesday, a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to the school to investigate, according to the report, which includes a charge description as “unnatural and lascivious.”
The report, which contains redactions, does not indicate the source of the kissing “allegations.”
Deputy April Culbreath reported speaking with a teacher who “witnessed the incident.” Thereafter, Culbreath concluded that there was “no indication that there was anything sexual about this incident” and no evidence that Florida state law had been violated.
Sorry, but are you telling me that if it was two 11 or 12 year old’s it would be considered “unnatural and lascivious.”
8th Grader Adelina Silva at Capshaw Middle School in Sante Fe, NM Suspended for Informing Parents They had the Option to “Opt Out” of State’s New Online Standardized Test, PARCC
FIRST SHE WAS SENT TO THE PRINCIPALS OFFICE, THEN SHE WAS SUSPENDED … CAN YOU SAY VIOLATION OF ONES CIVIL RIGHTS?
MORE IDIOTIC AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL BEHAVIOR FROM OUR SCHOOLS … Adelina Silva, an 8th-grader at Capshaw Middle School in Sante Fe, New Mexico was disciplined and suspended by school officials for taking a stand and handing out opt-out forms Thursday informing parents that they had the option to ‘opt out” of the new on-line standardization test known as PARCC. According to Adelina Silva, she said “My goal here was to just let the parents know that they have the option.” However, that is when the Storm troopers at the Middle School started pulling the fliers out of the kids hands. Adelina Silva was then sent to the principals office? WHAT!!!
So what rule did the 8th grader break that landed her in the principal’s office, the opt-out form is even available on the school district’s website? But this is what goes on in today’s Gestapo schools where only protests against conservative issues are allowed or children are given extra credit. Silva had been suspended for one day as of Thursday afternoon. WHAT PART ABOUT VIOLATING ONES CIVIL RIGHTS DOESN’T THIS SCHOOL UNDERSTAND? So the student broke no rules, yet she was suspended from school and missed time from classes. What brilliance on the part of school officials.
WHERE IS THE ACLU ON THIS ONE?
More students, parents and teachers standing up against PARCC, the state’s new online standardized test. It caused a disturbance at one school Thursday morning where a student at Capshaw Middle School in Santa Fe said she was disciplined for taking a stand.
“It’s setting us up for failure,” Adelina Silva said. “My goal here was to just let the parents know that they have the option.”
Adelina Silva, an 8th-grader at Capshaw, said she was handing out the opt-out forms Thursday when suddenly staff stepped in.
“They started pulling the fliers out from the kids’ hands,” she said.
That’s when Silva said he was pulled in to the principal’s office.
“And I was waiting there for over an hour and 20 minutes wasting my class time.”
The form she was handing out is available on the Santa Fe Public School’s website.
“I was very upset when I heard this,” her mother, Jacqueline Ellvinger said. “Parents need to know that this form is online and they are able to opt their children out of it.”
Ellvinger also chose to opt-out her son.
“It’s ridiculous,” she said of PARCC “Our children’s education is being based off a test.”
6 Year Old 1st Grader Hunter Punished with the Cardboard Wall of Shame at Lincoln Elementary in Grants Pass, OR Because His Mother Got Him To School Late
READING, WRING AND THE CARDBOARD WALL OF SHAME …
Why is it that it seems that those in control of educating today’s children in schools have the least amount of judgement? Sadly, we are presented with yet another example of school officials who should be flogged for their actions. A first grade boy at the Lincoln Elementary in Grants Pass, Oregon was punished by having to sit behind the cardboard wall of shame while eating lunch in the cafeteria with his classmates. WHAT? This was his punishment for not something he did, but for something his mom did. It appears that little Hunter was late to school because his mom’s car has trouble starting in the morning sometimes. So let’s understand this, the 6 year old has to suffer this embarrassment as a punishment for something he did not do, nor could control? Seriously? I am all for holding children accountable in school, teaching them manners, how to interact with others with respect and teaching them there are rules, but this is insane and over the line.
An Oregon school district is reviewing its tardiness punishments after a picture posted on Facebook of a 6-year-old sitting behind a cardboard screen in the lunchroom generated widespread outrage.
The Grants Pass School District issued a statement saying it “is taking the concerns raised very seriously,” and the punishment “was never intended to isolate or stigmatize students.”
Nicole Garloff says her son, Hunter, was upset when she dropped him off late at Lincoln Elementary School, so she checked on him at lunchtime. She found him sitting behind a cardboard screen. She took him home, and posted a photo on Facebook. So did the boy’s grandmother.
Just how ignorant are those who are educating our children? District school officials wrote that their practice of separating students behind a cardboard shield during lunch “was never intended to isolate or stigmatize students.” WHAT!!! What else could it possible do but ISOLATE OR STIGMATIZE a student. ARE YOU FRIGGING STUPID!!! What else could putting some one behind a barrier do but isolate them. We are told by our liberal edumacators that dodge-ball is stigmatizing to children. That keeping score in stigmatizing to children. We need to give everyone an award and prize so not to make some children feel … “uncomfortable”. BUT THIS IS OK.
UPDATE I: Backlash from parents over the Cardboard wall of Shame …
The boy’s parents got an apology from principal Missy Fitzsimmons on Thursday and were confident no more kids would be `placed on display” like that again. Exactly, how long was this going on?
Officials at Lincoln Elementary in Grants Pass say they plan to change the consequences for students who are tardy after a grandmother’s photo of her first-grade grandson stuck behind a cardboard wall in the school lunchroom prompted widespread outrage on Facebook and in phone calls to the district.
In a posting on the school’s web page, district officials wrote Thursday that their practice of separating students behind a cardboard shield during lunch “was never intended to isolate or stigmatize students.”
UPDATE II: Grant’s Pass, OR School District 7.
Over the past few days, there has been considerable general and social media attention regarding the Lincoln Elementary School Attendance/Tardy Catch-up Protocol. Yesterday afternoon, Principal Fitzsimmons was able to meet with both parents to discuss their concerns. The meeting was productive. The parents’ concerns were politely discussed and, ultimately, the issues were resolved to the satisfaction of both the parents and the school. All parties involved believe that an appropriate resolution has been reached and are anxious to move forward with their normal daily routines.
As a result of the concerns raised, the District ended the learning catch up location at Lincoln Elementary School. Going forward, a separate, supervised classroom has been designated for necessary catch-up work. The District and Lincoln Elementary will continue to work with families on an individual basis to encourage and promote student attendance.
Fourth Grade Girls Planned to Kill Teacher with Hand Sanitizer at Elba Elementary School in Elba, NY
MEAN GIRLS: Unbelievable, plot to kill school teacher results in no charges against juveniles …
According to the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office, three 4th grade girls plotted to kill their teacher at the Elba Elementary school in Elba, NY. The three evil punks planned to put hand sanitizer, some thing that the teacher was highly allergic to, on different items the teacher would touch. Their intent was to get the teacher extremely sick. However, because the plot was caught before it could be implemented the 3 students will not face any charges and the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office has closed their case after finding no crime had been committed. UNREAL. So in order to arrest a juvenile and charge them, they needed to kill the teacher. WHAT LOGIC. The police said the their of the three was that the girls said the teacher is “mean.” What are the odds these three juvenile delinquents will be in trouble in the future? The school district is taking over the investigation.
Deputies with the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office say a group of fourth graders planned to kill their teacher at Elba Elementary School.
According to the incident report, the Elba Elementary School principal called authorities after discovering a plot to harm the teacher.
Three students, all girls, are accused of planning to put hand sanitizer on different items the teacher would touch. That teacher is highly allergic to hand sanitizer, and police say the students knew this would hurt the teacher.
Sheriff’s deputies and other officials met with the children accused of the plot and their parents. At least one parent said the children knew the teacher could become very sick from contact with hand sanitizer, according to the incident report.
One of the mothers said after learning about the plan, she contacted the school. Another set of parents said they knew about it as well, but did not tell anyone.
The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office has closed their case after finding no crime had been committed. Because the plot was never carried out, police say the students are not facing charges.
EXIT QUESTION: SO LET’S UNDERSTAND THIS … THE POLICE GET CALLED TO SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS GET SUSPENDED BECAUSE STUDENTS MAKE A GUN WITH THEIR FINGER AND THUMB OR EAT A POP TART IN THE SHAPE OF A GUN, BUT A BUNCH OF STUDENTS PLOT TO KILL A TEACHER AND THAT GOES UNPUNISHED.
UPDATE I: Two of the student have been suspended. WOW, suspended. What a future these three girls have, there will be plenty of mean people they meet along the way in life, are they going to plot to kill them too? What are the odds that these kids have never been smacked upside their heads for bad behavior?
RITING WRITING AND ARRHYTHMIC …
Welcome to Common Core. Seriously folks, if this is what this school was projecting publicly, could you only imagine the quality of education behind the walls in the classrooms? Principal Antoinette Young of PS20 in Paterson, New Jersey is being reassigned to an as-yet undetermined position just days after the embarrassing sign below informed students that the progress “reepor” were to be held on “Dicember” 18. Got to like the backwards “1″ in 31 as well.
The School 20′s Motto is … Proper Planning Promotes Success; Failure Is Not An Option! However, it would appear that spelling is option
City education officials have demoted an elementary school principal days after a school board member circulated a photo showing misspellings in a large announcement sign outside one of the building’s entrances.
The sign at School 20’s side entrance listed events for “Dicember 2014.” It alerted people to the date for “progress reepor” and had the numeral one placed backwards in another instance.
Officials said the sign apparently contained those errors for more than a week, but apparently no one noticed until city school board member Corey Teague distributed copies of a photo of the errors.
“If this is how the administration takes care of signage how can we expect the students to do better? We must be held to a higher standard,” wrote Teague in an email accompanying the photo.
