Starbucks to Close 150 Stores as Sales Slide

Published

on

A coffee giant that recently closed for an entire day to engage its employees  in mandatory “bias training”  is closing 150 stores due to a slide in sales.

“Our growth has slowed a bit,” said Kevin Johnson, Starbucks CEO. “I expect better, I think our shareholders deserve better, and we’re committed to address that.”

But it is tough to sell coffee when your stores are closed. Starbucks faced a wave of public outrage after two men were arrested at a Philadelphia store after refusing to leave when asked by staff. The men had not purchased an item.

Johnson acknowledged that closing 8,000 stores for a full day did indeed hurt sales this quarter.

Big League Politics reported:

In a move that is sure to enrage shareholders, Starbucks is closing all of its company-owned stores on May 29 to teach it employees “racial bias training.”

“We’re taking a hard look at who we are as a company, said the company on Twitter. “We’re ashamed & recognize that racial bias is a problem we must address.”

According to Bloomberg, the company plans to close stores in densely populated metro areas where competition is strong, while focusing on dominating the suburbs.

“The competitive environment has really become a lot stronger in the U.S. and a lot of that is the fast-food chains really improving the quality and breadth of their offerings in terms of hot beverages and breakfast,” said Bloomberg analyst Jennifer Bartashus.

Harvard Law School Planning Conference to Smear and Silence Homeschoolers

It seems doubtful the conference will feature parents’ rights advocates.

Published

on

Harvard Law School is planning a conference on the topic of homeschooling, with speakers and content of the tenative June summit suggesting the event will be very negative towards the practice.

The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is planned for June 18-19th. The conference listing states that a focus of the conference will be to “discuss child rights in connection with homeschooling in the United States.”

Further investigation of the conference’s premise suggests it’s outright hostile to the notion of homeschooling entirely. One event scheduled for the second day of the conference is entitled “Concerns with Homeschooling.”

The Home School Legal Defense Association questioned what seemed to be the outright hostility to homeschooling that will be part of the event, pointing out the concerning public statements of some of the educators participating in the summit.

The pro-homeschooling rights group highlighted the anti-homeschooling track records of the event’s speakers.

Some, such as College of William and Mary law professor James Dwyer, have fundamentally questioned the rights of parents to homeschool their children. Dwyer has argued in law review article that “the claim that parents should have child-rearing rights—rather than simply being permitted to perform parental duties and to make certain decisions on a child’s behalf in accordance with the child’s rights—is inconsistent with principles deeply embedded in our law and morality.”

It almost seems anachronistic that the fixings of elite cultural liberalism are maintaining themselves in the midst of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, an event that has actually forced the American public and policy makers to focus on things that matter. This anti-homeschooling summit might end up being cancelled because of the coronavirus epidemic. But it any case, Harvard Law’s academic elites seem intent to question the rights of homeschoolers either way.
