During half term, #TDaPE ticked over a very special milestone and I promised @adamjames317 a run down of the top 10 episodes to date. Then the term started…but a promise is a promise. So over the next 10 days we’re going to have a look at what has piqued your interest so far…
#10 Creeping in at number 10 is “8 ways to get the most from talk in the classroom”. A masterclass in deep thinking from @lwilliamsjones and @Suchmo83 with practical advice for all teachers.

#9 It’s no surprise that @gareth_metcalfe makes an appearance in the top 10, as erudite and he is wonderful, this dissection of our use of manipulatives in Upper KS2 w/@Suchmo83 is one for the ages…

You know how groomers & CRT lovers always say “It’s all just taught in college?” Well they’re right. Here are current books aspiring teachers are studying.

What do you think these activists will be bringing into the classroom?

Still think it isn’t wide spread or systemic? ImageImageImage

This is the type of policies being pushed into K-12 school children by radicals disguised as “it’s just about kindness & love”. They’re brainwashing your children with political & gender propaganda all the while telling them to not trust you, their own parents. Take action!

Did you know AB Ed @AdrianaLaGrange cut funding to AB School Council Assoc (ASCA) @ABschoolcouncil by whopping 75%, greatly affecting all AB parents’ ability to have a voice & strength of collective? #abed #abpoli #ableg #education #parents #school #council #community 1/
Did you know AB ED @AdrianaLaGrange formed “Parent Advisory” consisting of 40 AB (handpicked?) parents? Why? ASCA @ABschoolcouncil has formed collective voice for ~90 yrs that represents ALL AB School Councils available to ALL AB parents #abed #abpoli #ableg #education 2/
ASCA is non-profit & drastically slashed budget to survive. Looking at budget breakdown during AGM today, over 50% provides learning opportunities/professional development so parent volunteers can do their legislated jobs on school council #abed #abpoli #parents #volunteers 3/

Who is Responsible??
An old African proverb says it takes a village to raise a child.

Training children is partnership between the Parents. the School and the society they live in.
The report card that just came out now is the results of parents and the school. My conjecture is that something has messed up these kids at home way before school. School has become a conducive environment for enabling the mixing of bad eggs and blank eggs.
Homes and schools ought to be a controlled environment, where children are shielded from some of the things that society offers. Society sings lewd songs with reckless abandon; the media is bursting with inappropriate age sensitive information that is uncensored.

𝗖𝗵𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗱, 𝗥𝗮𝗽𝗲 𝗼𝗿 𝗦𝗲𝘅, 𝗧𝗿𝘂𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝗿 𝗗𝗮𝗿𝗲! 𝗣𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝟭 Every day, a new crisis trends. Some of us can’t keep up.
I feel it’s important I comment about this issue for a few reasons:
1.Why I took
my kids out of Chrisland,
2.Primary school children having sex which isn’t new, is now a school’s fault?
3.Who is responsible?

When people take to social media condemning schools and parents, it’s good to look inwards, and take lessons to prevent what can happen 𝐭𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮!
Why did I take my children from Chrisland?

I took my kids out of Chrisland about 10yrs ago, as you can guess they are way past that level now. I saw a few signs, added them together and decided to remove them.

This morning, me in @Medium discussing how @quintabrunson's #AbbottElementary addresses underlying policy failures in the K-12 #education system from funding to disciplining Black students, and why every stakeholder should be paying attention. A thread/

medium.com/@annagifty/abb…
@quintabrunson's #AbbottElementary offers alternative solutions to dealing with challenges riddling the public school system, especially when it comes to lack of funding, disciplinary action, and how non-Black educators can better engage. Something we haven't seen before. 2/
Firstly, #AbbottElementary tackles the lack of school funding, which includes everything from bad light fixtures to school closures cc @eveewing. Both @CarycruzBueno @drcruzbueno find that for every $2,227 dollars spent in white school districts, non-white districts got $1.

🧵 There is a reason why we have minimum ages for several benefits in our society. 16 to drive, 18 to get a tattoo, 21 to buy alcohol, 25 to rent a car without restrictions. Car insurance companies charge a higher premium for drivers under a certain age.
We all know why. Every single one of us was 16, 18, 21, 25. Seriously think back, how much did you really understand about life?

Are we all seriously going to attempt to “have a conversation” with those who think it’s perfectly fine to sexually confuse 5 year olds?
That life altering hormone blockers & horrific sex surgeries for pre-teens and teens are anything but the desires of evil child abusers?

Sitting in the cramped high school library I sat a table chicken scratching a script outline for a Western style video game.

Hampsterdance plays endlessly on loop as a bunch of freshman giggle uncontrollably at the classic meme.
The principle big bellies up to my desk and asks me to explain what I was doing.

I tell him, “I’ve got this cool idea for a video game. These rough sketches are storyboarding the major plot points… I think there’s room for deeper storytelling in video games.”

🧵Many parents today mistakenly believe that K-12 is more or less the same as it were when they were in school. Often their children may even attend the exact same school that they went to as a child.
It is then understandable that it is difficult to believe some of the extreme policies, radical teachers, & the hyper focus on inappropriate sexual & political topic that is present even in elementary schools today.
"I know this happens elsewhere but not in my child's school!" is a phrase we hear often from parents who want to believe the best in their community. This is not a point to ridicule or demean. These are honest people who cannot imagine why anyone would want to harm children.

High levels of an #infection in #Massachusetts is causing both gastrointestinal (#diarrhoea, #vomiting) & respiratory (#cough, #sinus, #headache) symptoms WITHOUT typical fever or runny nose - School children & parents/guardians across #boston suburbs affected for last 3 weeks.
Note the CDC data suggests very little SARS-CoV-2 (Omicron) or influenza (flu) at this time in Massachusetts or Connecticut or New Hampshire. So diagnostic tests being used are not catching this circulating pathogen, or a seasonal coronavirus/norovirus/adenovirus is the culprit
According to the data on SARS-CoV-2-positive PCR tests there is very low levels of COVID-19 over last 3 weeks in Massachusetts, CT, NH, RI & VT. Yet there are several #school #children, #teachers and #parents with gastrointestinal & respiratory #infection symptoms in these states Image

The US gvm't says the population is “united” behind its war drive. This is a lie!

Here’s how US workers & youth really feel about the US/NATO drive to World War 3 & Putin's invasion.

RT, tag friends & add your voice! Post your video/pic & use #SpeakOutAgainstWW3!

1/ Image
In the hours and days ahead the WSWS will be posting statements against war from workers & young people across the US. #antiwar sentiment is censored from the corporate media. Post yr statement to show the world that the US population does not want war! #SpeakOutAgainstWW3

Liz, a nurse from LA says: "All working class people from the US must unite w/ our Ukrainian and Russian brothers & sisters. We have to build a working class #antiwar movement because this drive to war w/ Russia is a very dangerous policy. They are taking us to the edge."

Possibly controversial thread: We need to talk about New Zealand schools and #covid. I am well aware that going to #school is really important for lots of kids and their families, for all sorts of reasons. 1/
I am also well aware that there is a lot of pressure to attend school, again for all sorts of reasons. But at the moment, school may not be a safe place for your kids 2/
It is clear that most of the covid transmission at the moment is in the younger age brackets. That is ‘really good’ for the health system, because they generally do not end up in hospital, but that doesn’t mean it is good for your kid to get covid 3/

THREAD It’s #LGBTHM22 & the complaints are coming in thick & fast about school materials. First up we have this from @TheProudTrust Spoiler: It’s homophobic, a breach of the 1996 Education Act & @educationgovuk guidance #edutwitter #WomenEd #UKEdChat #RSE theproudtrust.org/schools-and-tr…
. @theproudtrust are being funded by @thetudortrust @EsmeeFairbairn & @SchoolsOUTUK. What research did they do before deciding to fund this controversial group? Do they approve of the dice game being used with 13 year olds? #LGBTHM #edutwitter #PSHE #RSE dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8…
It admits on page 3 that it is a political document. @KemiBadenoch has been unequivocal that the government are against Black Lives Matter (the political group, not the sentiment) in schools. (See speech here fb.watch/aVXWerr27N/). This is against the 1996 Education Act. #PSHE

I recognize a lot of names in the list of authors

Classmates

Colleagues

Mentors

They are wise, and know far more about #InfectiousDiseases and #epidemiology than I do

It is important to look at what this report does and does not say

covid19-sciencetable.ca/wp-content/upl…

@COVIDSciOntario
I don’t think there is anyone who would disagree with the message in these slides

Closing schools is a bad thing

Remote learning is disruptive and can lead to worse educational outcomes

As with everything in this #pandemic, poor and marginalized families far worst

But…
In this slide the #ScienceTable argues that vaccination reduces the risks to children

Currently less than 50% of the 5-11 cohort is double vaccinated

Once again the risk is greatest for our #children with comorbidities or low socioeconomic status

They admit they don’t know…

📢 Mobilize the working class behind Chicago teachers!

73% of #Chicago teachers voted to stop in-person learning, in defiance of local, state and federal Democrats who have implemented a reckless back-to-school campaign as #Omicron surges. 1/ wsws.org/en/articles/20…
The bold initiative taken by Chicago #teachers marks a major turning point in the class struggle. It has drawn support from workers worldwide, who are increasingly fighting to stop #COVID19 and save lives as the 3rd year of the pandemic begins. 2/ wsws.org/en/articles/20…

Maybe I’m tweeting into the void but I’m in isolation after testing positive on Monday and I feel insane so we’re going to talk about #schools and #teachers and #VirtualLearning
At this point, talking about the harms of #virtuallearning is a dog-whistle for me. Not one person I know thinks it’s good. That’s neither here nor there.
This morning, MCPS announced that 90 bus routes were cancelled AFTER students had already gone to their bus stops. This is because of no #staffing

A #journey to unknown! 🥰✌️

Nobody can help you out
It's only you, who can help yourself
To stay up, to stay motivated, to not fall, and to get up stronger even if you fall
You're the only one to lift yourself up
You're the only one to wipe your tears
As only you know what you're going through
Believe me
It's a journey to make you stronger and better
To help you cross bigger obstacles in future
These things won't even matter few years from now
But for now it does, and I understand the pain
But nobody else will, feel the same as you do
So only you can cure it
By putting a smile on your face
And getting back on track with more /confidence and determination

1/ It wasn't a conspiracy theory, it was a #CrimeAgainstHumanity...and it came from Florida. 🧵

The GOP started lying about COVID when Trump called it a "hoax". THAT lie has cost hundreds of thousands of American🇺🇲 lives. It also made them and their friends billions $$.

#Facts
2/ Trump said it was a hoax on Feb 27, 2020. Community transmission was being confirmed in multiple cities in the US. Around the world, case numbers were increasing exponentially everywhere one was found, and economic disruptions began roiling global financial markets.
