Pesky Progressive Change Agents at Lake Forest High School
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.17.17
Close on the heels of the “progressive” boondoggle at New Trier High School, another affluent North Shore high school has its own boondoggle in the offing. Though smaller in scope (thus far) and far less public than all-school dogma day at New Trier, the contempt for diverse views, the brazenness of the attempt at censorship, and the presumptuousness of the staff members involved are no less remarkable.

By Laurie Higgins   |   03.10.17
In just six weeks, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) will again attempt to ram their sexuality ideology down the throats and into the hearts and minds of other people’s children via the hijacking of government schools for the political protest called the Day of Silence.

New Trier High School Needs Accounting, Diversity, and Logic Lessons
By Laurie Higgins   |   02.27.17
Much virtual ink has been spilled, money wasted, and fallacious arguments spewed by supporters of the bias inarguably present in the sessions offered on New Trier’s All-School Seminar Day titled “Understanding Today’s Struggle for Racial Civil Rights,” which takes place tomorrow Feb. 28. A closer look at the money spent and diversity ideology promoted—often through fallacious logic—may lead parents to do two things: 1. Keep their children home on “progressive” dogma day. 2. Pursue changes in future seminars with the doggedness and passion (if not the fallacious reasoning) of “progressives.”

It has now become a national story with Peter Berkowitz, senior fellow with Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, publishing an editorial in the Wall Street Journal in which he accurately describes the event...
Hypocrisy of Leftists on Religious Tolerance
By Laurie Higgins   |   02.16.17
On Monday, I wrote about World Hijab Day during which non-Muslim teachers in public schools adopted the religious practice of hijab, wearing the head covering that some Muslim women wear voluntarily and some are coerced into wearing. Hijab is a controversial practice even among Muslims, many of whom see it as a symbol of a form of political Islam called Islamism that oppresses women.
Should Public School Teachers Participate in World Hijab Day
By Laurie Higgins   |   02.13.17
February 1, 2013 marked the first annual World Hijab Day, which was started by Nazma Khan, who emigrated from Bangladesh to the U.S. when she was 11-years-old.... On World Hijab Day, non-Muslim women and non-hijabi Muslims (i.e., Muslim women who don’t wear hijabs) are urged to wear a hijab for a day “in recognition of millions of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab and live a life of modesty.”
