2018 WEST VIRGINIA SCHOOL NEWS

Go straight to the most recent news item

THE FOLLOWING HEADLINES ARE SIMILAR TO HEADLINES FROM THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS.  THE SAME (OR WORSE) WILL HAPPEN NEXT YEAR! THESE INCIDENTS REPRESENT ONLY A TINY FRACTION OF WHAT REALLY GOES ON IN THE SCHOOLS OF THE SMALL "BIBLE BELT" STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA! MANY OTHER SERIOUS INCIDENTS ARE NOT MADE PUBLIC.

SADLY, WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE CHILDREN CANNOT BE CHANGED. DO YOU WANT TO TAKE THE CHANCE THAT YOUR CHILD WILL MAKE IT UNHARMED? EVEN IF A SERIOUS EVENT DOES NOT SHATTER YOUR CHILD, THERE IS NO WAY TO AVOID EXPOSING YOUR CHILD TO THINGS THAT WILL HARM HIM/HER EMOTIONALLY, MENTALLY, AND/OR SPIRITUALLY.

If you think that your school is an exception you are willingly blind.

THERE IS AN URGENT NEED TO GET OUR CHILDREN TO THE SAFETY OF HOMESCHOOLS OR CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS. THE DANGER OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS HAS CONVINCED A LOT OF NON-CHRISTIANS TO ABANDON THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. CHRISTIANS HAVE THE BIBLICAL MANDATE TO EDUCATE THEIR CHILDREN ACCORDING TO DEUTERONOMY 6:7 AND COLOSSIANS 2:3. 

WE MUST RESCUE OUR CHILDREN!

"Christian parents are _commanded_ to place their children under godly and Christian teaching, not neo-pagan or humanistic instruction. Whether we acknowledge it or not, only two choices remain-- obedience or disobedience to God’s commands. (See Col. 2:8; 2 Cor. 10:3-5; Deut. 6:1-9; Mal. 4:6; 2 Cor. 6:14-19 along with Luke 6:40. Matt. 22:37-38 and Eph. 6:4)" E. Ray Moore.

In the governor’s own words
Karl’s comment: Governor Jim Justice’s 2018 State of the State speech was disjointed. Of course, like previous governors, he wants education to be a focus of state expenditures. Other highlights is that teachers need more pay, the feds approved a pie-in-the-sky plan, and promote training in the trades (i.e. Vocational Education). He said, “Now, if we could jump over to one of my pet peeves, and that’s education. I think it truly needs to be the centerpiece of everything we do. I’ve thought that all along. I think we need to pay our teachers more. I’ve said that in the past….(A)t 5:15 today, believe it or not, but the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, called me to tell me that our plan, West Virginia’s plan, for every student — it’s called WV’s Every Student Succeeds Plan, was passed today… If you’re a student that likes to, you know — that wants to go into the trades and have an incredible job, and you’re a student that loves the electricity or whatever it may be, in all honesty, a lot of times when you walk the halls people may –— other kids may look down on you a little bit. It’s not fair. It’s not right. Some way we have got to let those kids know that we got to have them. We got to build this workforce like we can’t imagine. ” (http://www.dominionpost.com/2018-West-Virginia-State-of-the) Karl’s comment continued: Please look at these WV News pages and see the scams, the failures, and the tragedies that are the reality of government education. The so-called “Every Student Succeeds Plan” is a farce. Millions more money will be wasted. Take a look at the governor’s 2017 speech.

WE MUST RESCUE OUR CHILDREN!!

Please look at the school news below as well as for other years (along with my articles) for documentation about why tax-payers should “just say NO!” to pouring more money down the government school rat-hole.

Among these headlines you can easily follow common threads of drug abuse, sex (including teachers with students and promotion of sexual perversion), lack of disciple, violence, poor academic standards, crime, anti-Christianity, and wanting more and more money “for the kids”.

Sex crimes in the education system are rampart and traceable to the decay of society which is closely connected to humanism taking over “public” schools. Parents in Kanawha County warned of this in 1974. Now, we are simply reaping what is sown.

The sin of sexual abuse is inexcusable, but the fact is that it is rare that church personnel molests a child. That is not so with school personnel. You will be amazed at the reports of school personnel sex with students throughout the WV School news headlines. See the comments on this issue on the main WV News page. Also, teachers, unlike preachers, do not get scandalized for their adultery and other sex escapades with adults. See the March 26, 2009 headline “W.Va. teacher charged with sex assault of teen” for a sad, but pertinent point. (Note: Prior to 2018 I deleted names of teachers accused of sexual assaults. I changed that policy after having difficulty checking entries for duplications.)

The moral sickness in the school system goes all the way back to 1977--a couple of years after the Kanawha County Parents sounded the alarm.

THE TEST THAT TELLS THE TALE OF TRUTH: “The Nation’s Report Card” National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) from the National Center for Education Statistics.

“The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas.” (http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/about/) Webster defines “proficient” as “good at doing something.” (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/proficient)

2018 WEST VIRGINIA SCHOOL NEWS
Racist drawing found at Charleston high school; investigation underway 1-18-18
http://www.wsaz.com/content/news/Racist-drawing-found-at-Charleston-high-school-investigation-underway-469970863.html
Police and school system officials are investigating after a drawing was found at George Washington High School. The drawing shows a person hanging from a tree, with a rope around their neck. Next to the picture it says, "I have Black in my family tree. He's still hanging there." A student allegedly took a picture of the drawing and posted it to social media. Students brought the photo to the attention of school leaders, according to police…Charleston Police tell WSAZ their resource officer at the George Washington High School is aware of the drawing. Police say they found it under a desk in one of the school's classrooms…A spokesperson tells WSAZ the Kanawha County Schools Security Director is now aware and is in the process following up with the school. Karl’s comment: This high school is considered the best in the county and, perhaps, the state.

Some parents upset that Kanawha County schools were open Tuesday 1-17-18
http://wchstv.com/news/local/some-parents-upset-that-kanawha-county-schools-were-open-tuesday
(Kanawha County Superintendent Ron) Duerring said they kept schools open but dismissed early because the data had said conditions would worsen around 2 p.m. and about 2,200 students depend on the school for free or reduced-cost meals. "We are doing the best we can, we want to keep our kids in school. we want to feed them and make sure they are taken care of and in a warm situation. As I stressed earlier, 84 percent of our kids are on free lunch, so it's important we take care of,” Duerring said. Karl’s comment: The article also featured a bus accident. On another report (www.wowktv.com/news/emergencies/kanawha-co-school-board-defends-decision-to-start-on-time-despite-weather-driving-conditions/919822033) a citizen said: “'I’d rather a kid stay at home and their parents figure them out something to eat than risk their lives." Amen!

West Virginia's 'exemplary' high school graduation rate recognized 1-12-18
http://www.wsaz.com/content/news/West-Virginias-exemplary-high-school-graduation-rate-recognized-469024243.html
About 70 West Virginia high schools were recognized for having exemplary graduation rates of 90 percent or more during the 2016-17 school year…According to the release, West Virginia’s graduation rate is among the strongest in the country. Karl’s comment: What a crock! According to a 12-7-17 report: “About 31 percent of college-going students who graduated in the spring of 2016 had test scores low enough that required them to enroll in a remedial class when they went to college.” And that percentage had not changed since a 5-25-09 report! It has been a national problem since, at least, 2010! “Regrettably, I’ve seen salutatorians and valedictorians go to college and need remedial courses,’ said former West Virginia Gov. Bob Wise, who now heads the Alliance for Excellent Education, an education research and advocacy group based in Washington, D.C.” (https://wowwritingworkshop.com/about-1-in-5-students-need-remedial-help-in-college/) Just think about the ones who did not enroll in college.

After I posted the previous comments another article was posted On the 13 th with this headline: “WV graduation rates don't show if students are ready for college” From the article: State officials honored 68 high schools that had at least a 90 percent graduation rate for the most recent school year. School leaders received plaques to commemorate the achievement… Despite the praise, a school’s graduation rate isn’t a sure predictor of how ready students are for college. Some of the West Virginia high schools with the best graduation rates also have a high percentage of students who aren’t prepared to take entry-level math and English classes in college, according to data from the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission…For about half of the 68 schools the state honored Friday, at least a third of their college-going students weren’t ready for college-level math or English, data shows.

Education leaders say teachers need more than 1 percent pay raise proposed by governor 1-10-18
http://wvmetronews.com/2018/01/10/education-leaders-say-teachers-need-more-than-1-percent-pay-raise-proposed-by-governor/
West Virginia education leaders say a proposed one percent pay raise for teachers is not enough to fill the more than 700 vacancies statewide…Education officials say teachers are leaving the state because they’re not getting paid enough. Karl’s comment: This is the same song, 50 th verse same as the first.

WV school board makes changes to grade scale, cuts graduation requirements 1-11-18
https://www.wvgazettemail.com/news/education/wv-school-board-makes-changes-to-grade-scale-cuts-graduation/article_c06a6f7a-f46a-5301-a227-e458fa03f455.html
The West Virginia Board of Education agreed Wednesday to reduce, from 24 to 22, the minimum number of credits required to graduate from high school; and to change the statewide grading scale for high schoolers… Board members refused a request from Laura Kimble, president of the Bridgeport High School Academic Boosters, to delay the vote. “Based on the unavailability of the revised policy to the true stakeholders — the parents, the students, the families, administrators and teachers of the state of West Virginia — I respectfully request that you refrain from action,” Kimble said… The existing statewide grading scale says 0-64 is an F, 65-74 is a D, 75-84 is a C, 85-92 is a B and 93-100 is an A. Effective July 1, 0-59 will be an F, 60-69 a D, 70-79 a C, 80-89 a B and 90-100 an A… That means the 1.0 through 4.0 grade-point-average scale will be affected, too. The same grade scale changes are happening to the weighted grading scale, which is supposed to give more credit for students who take harder courses, and the weighted grading scale will continue to give a 2.0 instead of a 1.0 for Ds, a 3.0 instead of a 2.0 for Cs, a 4.0 instead of a 3.0 for Bs and a 5.0 instead of a 4.0 for As… Another change approved Wednesday, and included in the November proposal, allows high-schoolers to receive physical education credit for courses like show choir and dance through “integrated physical education.” Karl’s comment: The minimum credits involved two electives, but it is still a lowering of standards. The grade scale is obviously a dumbing down of performance. The physical education options is also a reduction in expectations.

WVU football player cited for having gun at high school basketball game 1-7-18
http://wvmetronews.com/2018/01/07/wvu-football-player-cited-for-having-gun-at-high-school-basketball-game/
A West Virginia University football player has been cited for having a gun with him at a high school sporting event in Charleston, according to police…Pitts was attending the George Washington versus South Charleston basketball game. Police apparently smelled marijuana from Pitts’ vehicle where he was in the driver’s seat. No drugs were found. Karl’s comment: Does anyone really doubt that there is a lot of this going on undetected at these events?

School system on why they're not closed for day: Nearly 4,000 kids rely on us for food 1-5-18
http://wchstv.com/news/local/school-system-on-why-theyre-not-closed-for-day-nearly-4000-kids-rely-on-us-for-food
Jefferson County School Public Schools in West Virginia opened on a two-hour delay Friday as the area endured sub-zero wind chills. The bitter temperatures prompted some questions of why the school system wasn't closed for the day and with that in mind, the system issued a statement on why it was vital for them to open up. "But, why a 2-Hour Delay?" The school posted on their website. "Why not close schools for a day by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate? Good questions, and here is the answer: The reality of modern education is that today and every day we are a primary source of food for the 3,394 students who receive free breakfast and lunch. On Fridays, in particular, we send many of these same students home with backpacks of food for their families for the weekend. For another 1,316 students who qualify as homeless, we are a source of warmth and consistency." Karl’s comment: It could be to keep the required days in session up. It could be that the system wants to push a socialistic/welfare agenda. Commenters pointed out the danger of the children waiting on the bus.
