    Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales shut down any debate about gun reform during an interview on Wednesday, a day after 19 children were shot dead at an elementary school in his district. Gonzales insisted it was time for unity and healing rather than politics when he was pressed on his own pro-gun stance.   'I'm happy to debate policy, not today,' the Republican representative for Texas' 23rd congressional district, which includes the city of Uvalde, told CBS Mornings. 'I mean, today, we ... my community is hurting.  'You know, politicians like to divide us. Leaders unite us and we need to be united right now as Americans because what happened in Uvalde, Texas, can happen anywhere. 'Right now, I've got families that can't identify their children. I've got folks that have to bury their children. I mean, these are the things that we're working with.'  He was speaking a day after 18-year-old Salvador Ramos opened fire with an AR-15 rifle at Robb Elementary. Rep.  Tony Gonzales, whose district includes the elementary school where 19 children were shot dead on Tuesday, said now...
    A draft version of the infamous letter the National School Boards Association (NSBA) sent to President Biden likening angry parents to domestic terrorists even asked for the Army National Guard and the military police to be sent in to certain districts.  'We ask that the Army National Guard and its Military Police be deployed to certain school districts and related events where students and school personnel have been subjected to acts and threats of violence,' the draft letter, which was later amended, read, according to an independent review of the letter. The NSBA originally sent a letter to Biden in September 2021 that requested federal intervention into protesting parents at school board meetings across the country, and requested that their actions be investigated under the Patriot Act as 'domestic terrorism.'  The association represents more than 90,000 school board members in 14,000 public school districts. The review of the NSBA's letter notes that the controversial letter was not authorized by the association's board of directors or executive committee, and only four people within the NSBA had reviewed it before it went...
    Two Virginia schools which had been named after Confederate generals and soldiers and which changed their names in the wake of the 2020 murder of George Floyd, are to revert back to their earlier names. The Shenandoah County School Board changed Stonewall Jackson High School to Mountain View High School and Ashby-Lee Elementary School to Honey Run Elementary School in Quicksburg, following a board vote in July 2020 and final approval in January 2021. But less than two years later, a petition was launched to gauge the strength of feeling on reverting the schools back to their original names.  In 2020, a vote was held to switch the name of Stonewall Jackson High School to Mountain View, but it is likely the old name could be brought back within months General Stonewall Jackson served as a Confederate general during the American Civil War, and became one of the best-known Confederate commanders Vocal opposition came from community members and alumni with more than 4,000 people signing the petition to switch the names back. The topic was discussed at length by the six...

    A New York high school has suspended members of their athletics team after the girls campaigned to be able to train in just a sports bra, rather than a traditional running vest. The girls, all students at Albany High School, asked last week to be able to train in their lycra crop tops, pointing out that the boys were allowed to train wearing only a pair of shorts. The athletic director for Albany school district, Ashley Chapple, felt that it was inappropriate. Jordan Johnson, one of the girls, said: 'Wednesday, she confronted us about wearing sports bras and saying we couldn't (just) wear sports bras because we have male coaches,' Johnson said. 'She said that before and she said us working out is a distraction. We have to cover up because male coaches are around.' On Thursday, when they continued to train in the same clothes, asked the girls in sports bras to leave the session. Members of the Albany High School track and field team asked to be able to train in their sports bras, but were suspended as a...

    President Joe Biden talked about going to school during segregation, telling the crowd at a DNC fundraiser that he recalled noticing the practice as a young child in Delaware. President Biden spoke at a Democratic National Committee Fundraiser Wednesday night at the Marriott Marquis Chicago, during which he sounded familiar notes about his entry into politics — but also shared painful memories of life before Brown v. Board of Education. Speaking about how the civil rights movement inspired him, the president recalled his days as a third-grader attending Holy Rosary Elementary School in Claymont Delaware — and related that experience to the politics of voting rights today: I used to — we moved from Wilmington — from, excuse me, Scranton, Pennsylvania, where there were very few African Americans, down to Wilmington, to a place called Claymont, Delaware, which was a — it sits on the border of the Pennsylvania state line, where there are more oil companies and refineries than in Houston, Texas.

    An arrest has been made after a fake bomb threat interrupted second gentleman Doug Emhoff's visit to a Washington, D.C., high school in early February. A 17-year-old girl has been arrested in connection to the incident at Dunbar High School on Feb. 8 that forced Emhoff, who was visiting the school's museum at the time, and others to evacuate, the Metropolitan Police Department said Wednesday. SEVEN DC PUBLIC SCHOOLS EVACUATED FOLLOWING MULTIPLE BOMB THREATS The arrest was assisted by Secret Service in addition to local authorities. The bomb threat was first made to the school's front desk by an anonymous caller who told school employees that they had 10 minutes to evacuate, said Ashan Benedict, executive assistant chief for MPD, in a February press conference. Secret Service was made aware of the threat and evacuated Emhoff, who was on a preplanned visit for Black History Month, out of the area. Dunbar High School became the nation's first black high school, opening in 1870, according to NPR. Bomb units and bomb-sniffing dogs were sent...

    PARENTS are furious, claiming a school's "loo ban" is forcing kids to choose between going to the toilet or having lunch. Lightcliffe Academy in Halifax has banned loo breaks during the day so pupils have to skip lunch to go to the toilet, parents claim. 1Nicola Hanson with her daughter Izzy outside Lightcliffe Academy, which has banned toilet trips during the dayCredit: SWNS The school cracked down on toilet trips during lessons, but it backfired with massive queues at break times. Pupils have to choose between eating or lining up all lunchbreak for the toilet, according to their disgruntled parents. The rule sparked anger, riling up a flood of complaints and a petition calling for bosses to reverse their decision. The West Yorkshire secondary restricted pupils' access to the loos and enforced a strict toilet timetable of lunch, breaktime and before or after school. It says students are encouraged to go to the toilet outside of class time to avoid disrupting lessons. But fuming parents have slammed the move. Joanne Harney, whose teenage daughter attends the school, said: "It's totally oppressive....

    by Evan Stambaugh   Middle school students in Bloomington, a suburb of Minneapolis, have reportedly been given the opportunity to step out of class for “reflection” time during Ramadan. An online form asks parents of students at Valley View Middle School if their child has permission to leave class for 15 minutes throughout the month of April. The story was first reported by the Center of the American Experiment. “Ramadan Kareem! Please let us know if you give permission for your student to leave class for reflection in the media center from 1:30-1:45PM during Ramadan,” the form reads. “We need your permission in order to keep track of the students and meet their needs during Ramadan.” Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. This year it began on April 2 and ends at dusk on May 1. The entire month is devoted to fasting and prayer. One parent told American Experiment that Valley View Middle School did not give students the opportunity to observe any “reflection” time for Lent, Easter, or Passover. Of course, Lent and Easter are celebrated...
    Senator Ted Cruz and hundreds of other prominent conservatives have signed an open letter to Yale Law School, calling on administrators to hold protesters accountable for disrupting a free speech event last month. The letter, addressed to Yale Law School Dean Heather Gerken and three associate deans, was sent on Thursday, referencing what its authors described as the 'deeply disturbing incident' that took place on campus on March 10, when a group of some 120 students shouted down and threatened a conservative panelist during a free speech debate. Cruz, a Republican from Texas, is scheduled to visit Yale Law School at the invitation of the school's William F Buckley Jr program on Monday night to record an episode of Verdict, the political podcast that he co-hosts. The lawmaker is set to be met with his own protests - but has asked them to remain civil, and says he welcomes questions afterwards from people who disagree with his views.  When Cruz's visit was announced last week, progressive Yale Law students signaled their intention to stage another protest, arguing that the outspoken...
    Ada Tseng | Los Angeles Times Muslim children typically aren’t expected to fast during Ramadan until they reach puberty. But often kids will want to start earlier because they see everyone else abstaining from food and water from sunrise to sunset — followed by their community gathering to break their fast together — and they want to participate. “I really wanted to get in on the fun,” said Raahim Sattar, who started fasting when he was around 7. He’s an 18-year-old Danville native currently learning Arabic at the Qalam seminary in Dallas. He has older twin brothers — and a competitive streak: “I was like, hey, maybe I can do it better than them.” Fatima Amawi, a 16-year-old Muslim Youth of North America volunteer from Orlando, Fla., remembers getting a special cake during the Eid celebration after completing her first full fast at age 9. Years later, she still finds Ramadan fasting manageable. She drinks a cup of milk each day before the fast because she grew up seeing her grandfather do that. She takes a break from her competitive...
