California ceases to pass legislation that boggles the mind.
Rob Dreher of The American Conservative reported that a new bill passed would ban all public and charter schools from suspending students for “willful defiance.”
In other words, if a student is misbehaving in class, teachers and school officials will not be allowed to suspend them from school.
It’s no secret that California public schools lag behind in national education standards, despite the state dropping $90 billion into the education system in 2019.
Schools now have to keep kids on campus no matter their level of unruliness and detrimental behavior that negatively impacts the education of others.
Under SB 419, the only exceptions for which a student could still be suspended will be for bringing a weapon or illegal drugs to school.
In almost cliché fashion, lawmakers passed this bill to supposedly combat racism.
A local NBC affiliate reported the following about this bill:
“The bill by Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, would ban the suspension of students in grades K-8 for refusing to obey a teacher or administrator, a practice known as willful defiance.
‘I’ve dealt with a lot of these cases,’ said Berry Accius, founder of Voice of the Youth, a nonprofit mentoring program in Sacramento. ‘Unfortunately, I’ve had kids that have been suspended for sometimes three months.”’
Accius said school suspensions are used disproportionately against students of color.
‘African American males and females, they are suspended at a higher rate — especially the African American males,’ Accius said.
This law will go into effect on July 1, 2020.
Rod Dreher of The American Conservative bashed the initiative and foresees the following scenario:
“Now state legislators, in their wisdom, have condemned elementary school teachers and the well-behaved students — black, white, Latino, Asian, whatever — to the tyranny of brats.”
Dreher added: “Progressives are dismantling the ability of a basic social institution — the school — to defend itself, and to maintain order sufficient to fulfill its function.” More importantly, Dreher made an interesting point: “when the parents who can afford to get their kids out of the public schools do so, progressives will call them racist.”
Public schools in America are now starting to become inhospitable for children who want a real education.
Americans will have to draw from America’s long history of non-governmental education in order to come up with an alternative to the current education system, which is filled with dysfunction across the board.
California’s newest bill just indicates that public educators are no longer interested in establishing quality learning environments for the children.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
