2022 4th grade assessments lower than USA

They plan prison space by calculating how many kids can-and cannot- read by 4th grade. SKPS test scores have been declining for the past 10 years but the 2022 scores were lower than ever.

tampons in toilets 2022

Oregon created four new laws to deal with this idea that trans CHILDREN need to "menstruate with dignity". Well this isn't it! This was a big bro-ha-ha with very little privacy and dignity for anyone! Every child needs to use the bathroom that corresponds to their biological sex. Period!

REALITY at WALDO school- social justice - cse
REALITY at WALDO school- social justice - cse

Although some activists continue to claim harm from a SK "school to prison pipeline" there is no such pipeline in SKPS District according to data collected prior to Spring, 2021, just before the School Resource Officers were cancelled. Since that time "restorative practices" have taken over discipline and the result has been chaos and increased bullying and disciplinary incidents as students are not being held accountable.

EQUITY IS NOT Equality per SKPS
EQUITY IS NOT Equality per SKPS

No one wins if the most anyone can achieve is the success of the lowest common denominator. This kind of "equity" kills opportunity and leads to lowered standards and less learning.

Amaze sex ed videos- porn is ok

SKPS uses Amaze cartoon videos in their health curriculum. They are clear about not having a moral line. It's easy for children to scroll through to find more videos.

Student were given a choice of seven different gender identities to pick from, including bunnies, kitties, and puppies, or "furries" that the District insists must be affirmed. Every child should be affirmed but not for their sexual preferences!
