Teacher Gives Students Racist Quiz Asking About ‘AK-47’s, ‘Ho’s’ and Drugs

Teachers being adventurous and occasionally adding new things to the curriculum often leads to more well-rounded students. But there’s a line you just don’t cross. And a language arts teacher for a group of 8th graders at Burns Middle School left that line miles behind with a recent quiz she handed out.

The 10-question quiz included questions about prostitutes, narcotics and gang violence and has caused quite a frenzy among students, parents and school officials. According to Huffington Post, the teacher has now been placed on administrative leave.

Five Texas Teens Arrested For Racist Graffiti On Rival High School

School rivalries can get intense and before you know it you may look up and feel that you have a genuine dislike for the students from across the way. But hate is a different level altogether and has no place. And that hate being used as a platform for racist and anti-transgender rhetoric is unacceptable.

Five Texas teenagers have learned this lesson after being arrested for reportedly spray painting “Whites Only” over a rival high school’s water fountain and “Trans Only” near a bathroom. 

High School Student Escorted Out Of Graduation For Wearing Kente Cloth

Far too many children are having life-long memories either taken away or ruined for nothing else than being themselves. Whether it be because of a poem, a goatee or a kente cloth, this is getting far out of hand.

Nyree Holmes was set to participate in graduation from Cosumnes Oaks High School in Elk Grove, California. However, the school had a strict graduation dress code which only included caps, gowns and any cords or medals to commemorate academic awards received. 

Principal Responds To Email Criticizing Graduation Procedures After Student Is Killed

Myneisha Johnson was tragically killed a week before her graduation from Booker T. Washington High School in Memphis. To honor the young woman’s hard work, the school allowed her grandmother and 1-year-old son to accept her diploma.

This is usually seen as a touching honor – something similar happened with a friend when I was in college – but apparently it doesn’t sit well with everyone. The school’s Principal Alisha Coleman-Kiner shared an email exchange that she had with a concerned citizen about the message it sends, according to FOX13.

Va. Middle Schooler Suspended and Charged With Larceny For ‘Stolen’ Milk

Apparently, stealing a 65-cent carton of milk comes with a very hefty price even for school children.

A Virginia middle school student was accused of doing just that and has been suspended after being handcuffed, searched for drugs, charged with larceny and ordered to appear in juvenile court.

Possibly the worst thing about the entire altercation is that Shamise Turk told WTVR that her son Ryan is already on the school’s lunch program and the milk he was accused of stealing was actually included and his for the taking.

Student Denied Admittance To Prom For Her “Dear Black Girls” Poem

The treatment of black women has always been disheartening, to say the least. But for the past few years, watching them lift themselves and each other up through various means has been inspiring and welcomed by many. But, it appears that these efforts to introduce self-love are only accepted by the masses until they threaten to cross a line.

Taiylar Ball, a senior at Homewoof-Floosmoor High School, just outside of Chicago, is now realizing this. After performing a poem entitled “Dear Black Girls” at the school’s talent show, Ball’s privilege to attend prom and walk in her graduation were taken away, according to JET.

Black Valedictorian Not Allowed To Walk At Graduation Due To Facial Hair

Almost by definition, teenagers rebel against authority and test rules whenever possible. While they may seem upset when they’re punished, deep down they know they did something they weren’t supposed to. But what happens when they’re punished for a rule that was never enforced?

Andrew Jones was a graduating senior at Amite High School in Amite, LA. Actually, he was the valedictorian with a 4.0 GPA, according to WWLTV. Yet, he wasn’t able to walk in his graduation.

Federal Government Sues North Carolina Over ‘Bathroom Bill’

North Carolina’s bill that force people to use the bathrooms that match the gender they were given at birth, commonly referred to as the “Bathroom Bill,” has brought out its biggest opposition yet – the U.S. government.

The Justice Department has sued the state over the controversial bill and claim it “stigmatizes and singles out transgender employees, results in their isolation and exclusion, and perpetuates a sense that they are not worthy of equal treatment and respect,” according to Huffington Post.
