Test scores plunge despite California school throwing $250,000 on “Woke Kindergarten” program

In an attempt to address disparities and remove barriers related to racism and oppression, Glassbrook Elementary School in Hayward, California, implemented a “Woke Kindergarten” program.

The program, backed by a three-year $250,000 contract with Woke Kindergarten, aimed to improve student performance by addressing learning barriers such as racism and white supremacy. However, after two years of implementation, not only did the test scores fail to show significant improvement, they actually witnessed a decline.

Woke Kindergarten, a for-profit organization founded by Akiea Gross, a non-binary early educator, identifies itself as a “global, abolitionist early childhood ecosystem.”

The program advocates for abolitionist early education and emphasizes pro-black, queer and trans liberation. (Related: WOKE TYRANNY: Aspiring foster parents could be prohibited from adopting children if they don’t push gender ideology at home.)

Glassbrook Elementary School entered into the contract with Woke Kindergarten focusing on five core pillars of abolitionist education: identity, skill development, intellectualism, criticality and joyfulness.

Identity, according to proponents, goes beyond basic categories like race, class and gender, adopting an intersectional perspective in the context of social justice movements.

Criticality encourages students to recognize, understand and disrupt oppression, placing their learning within the broader context of societal issues.

However, as the program unfolded, concerns arose among Glassbrook teachers, with some expressing reservations about its progressiveness.

Tiger Craven-Neeley, a teacher, disclosed that a key objective of the program was to “disrupt whiteness” at the school.

Despite the disappointing test score outcomes, Hayward Unified School District Superintendent Jason Reinmann defended the program, highlighting its positive impact on classroom attendance, which increased by nearly 20 percent.

Reinmann suggested that the primary aim of the program was to boost attendance rather than test scores.

The concept of abolitionist education, as promoted by Woke Kindergarten, aligns with a relatively new teaching approach that seeks to dismantle elements of the existing educational system.

Zeus Leonard, an education professor at the University of California Berkeley, acknowledged the foundations of Woke Kindergarten in abolitionist education, emphasizing equity, anti-racism, anti-oppression and love of humanity.

However, critics, including James Lindsay, a prominent censurer of critical theory, caution against the potential misuse of such approaches.

Lindsay argued that while critical theory can foster useful skepticism, it has been misapplied by the social justice movement to oversimplify complex issues, often attributing differences in outcomes solely to systemic injustices like “systemic racism.”

The outcome at Glassbrook Elementary School raises questions about the effectiveness of such progressive educational programs and emphasizes the need for a balanced approach that addresses the concerns of all stakeholders, including students, parents and educators.

Woke Kindergarten founder is a controversial figure

Meanwhile, the Woke Kindergarten founder has been known for expressing controversial views on social media.

In an Instagram post, Gross said the United States and Israel have no right to exist, expressing sentiments of resistance and liberation. Gross accused these countries of being villains and called for their end.

The controversial figure also called for the abolition of schools, envisioning a world where children learn through community-based ecosystems, eliminating the need for traditional educational systems.

Gross’ curriculum materials from Woke Kindergarten have been utilized in various schools, emphasizing abolitionist early education.

The organization claims to support children, families, educators and organizations committed to pro-black and queer and trans liberation.

In addition to advocating for the end of nation-states, Gross extends their beliefs to include extraterrestrial beings, expressing solidarity with all oppressed beings, both human and non-human.

The controversial statements raise questions about the appropriateness of such ideologies in educational settings, prompting concerns among parents, educators and the broader community.

Gov’t watchdog: U.S. taxpayers funded $2M worth of gain-of-function research in Wuhan – NaturalNews.com

Gov’t watchdog: U.S. taxpayers funded $2M worth of gain-of-function research in Wuhan

The head of a government watchdog has disclosed that U.S. taxpayers bankrolled gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China – to the tune of $2 million.

Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of the government spending watchdog site OpenTheBooks.com (OTB), was behind this revelation. Last year, he revealed that $1.3 billion in U.S. government funds reached various entities in China and Russia – with up to $2 million being sent to the WIV. OTB partnered with Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) on an audit that uncovered the government funds flowing to America’s adversaries.

“We wanted to know how many taxpayer dollars since 2017 floated into the adversarial countries of China and Russia – and the number was quite staggering,” Andrzejewski told Michael Nevdarakis of Children’s Health Defense during an appearance on “The Defender In-Depth” podcast.

Documents from the Government Accountability Office obtained by OpenTheBooks.com found that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) provided $2.17 million in grant funding to Chinese research institutions between 2014 and 2021. Of this amount, a $1.41 million sub-grant allocated by the Manhattan-based EcoHealth Alliance went to the WIV.

The institution based in China’s central Hubei province conducted hazardous research on bat coronaviruses – leading to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in 2020. It was only in September 2023 that the Department of Health and Human Services barred the WIV from receiving U.S. funding for the next 10 years.

Ernst and other members of Congress have called on the Department of Defense’s (DOD) inspector general (IG) to investigate over $50 million the U.S. government provided in grants to Chinese research laboratories, as per an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2024. As a result, the DOD IG now has “six months to look back a decade and report back to the American people and Congress exactly how much U.S. taxpayer money ended up in China and these entities,” Andrzejewski said.

Fauci never conducted oversight of grants

Calling the documents “a treasure trove of troubling information,” Andrzejewski said the $1.3 billion that flowed to China and Russia included “about $59 million since 2017 on contracts with Chinese entities and contractors.” Of this $1.3 billion, $70 million was used to fund the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC) and about $300,000 was allocated for ethical training for Chinese scientists.

“They were fudging data, they were abusing human subjects and patients in the clinical trials [and they were doing] other very unethical things,” Andrzejewski said. He continued that the U.S. government itself is “acknowledging that they don’t even have the basics in place to be able to handle this funding.”

The government watchdog’s revelations come as Dr. Anthony Fauci, former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), testified before lawmakers. During a closed-door disposition before members of Congress, Fauci admitted his agency did not conduct oversight of the foreign labs it funded. (Related: BIOWEAPONS CRIMINAL: Anthony Fauci bought off top-level scientists to cover up lab origins of covid-19.)

‘”[Fauci] never read the grant proposals; he would just sign off on it,” Andrzejewski remarked. “It’s amazing how fast the National Institutes of Health or any federal agency loses track of U.S. taxpayer dollars.”

“In this investigation with Sen. Ernst and our team … we found that after a grant gets paid out to an entity and the entity … pays out a sub-grant, the sub-grant from there isn’t ever tracked. There is the potential for a great taxpayer money laundering scheme at the federal level. This is why we need to get to the bottom of this.”

Show of force: U.K. announces test-fire of Trident 2 nuclear missile – NaturalNews.com

Show of force: U.K. announces test-fire of Trident 2 nuclear missile

The British Royal Navy has announced that it would test-fire the Trident 2 nuclear missile via the nuclear submarine HMS Vanguard.

According to the Sun, the test-firing would be the first time the U.K. would do so since 2016. During that year, a test-firing of the Trident ended up being botched – leaving the Royal Navy red-faced. Since then, the missile has undergone a seven-year refit.

The Trident 2 missile, which measures 44 feet, can go at a speed of 18,000 miles per hour and has a range of 7,500 miles. Meanwhile, the 30-year-old HMS Vanguard will be firing this missile to determine if it is eligible to re-enter service as part of the U.K.’s nuclear deterrent fleet. The 491-foot “colossus” submarine, which could reportedly patrol undetected for months at a time as per the Royal Navy, was pictured sailing from Port Canaveral in Florida.

The underwater craft can carry up to 16 Trident 2 D5 missiles in its hold. These missiles are each armed with multiple British-made warheads that are 20 times more powerful than the weapons dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan during World War II.

According to the Daily Mail, reports of the test-firing come amid rising fears that the U.K. and its allies could be pulled into a conflict in the coming years. Downing Street followed suit after Estonia and Sweden warned their respective citizens that the prospect of large-scale war is on the horizon. (Related: Bracing for war? NATO to establish network of “military corridors” across Europe.)

British Army head calls on citizens to BE READY

In a stark warning speech, British Defense Secretary Grant Shapps sought to encapsulate the grave threats facing Britain and beyond. He reiterated that the world is moving “from a post-war to a pre-war” one.

“In five years’ time, we could be looking at multiple theaters – including Russia, China, Iran and North Korea,” said Shapps. “Ask yourself: Looking at today’s conflicts across the world, is it more likely that the number grows or reduces? I suspect we all know the answer.”

Meanwhile, the head of the British Army said Britons should be “trained and equipped” to fight in a potential war with Russia. Gen. Patrick Sanders, the British Army’s Chief of the General Staff, described the current generation as the “pre-war generation.”

According to Sanders, the war in Ukraine was a “pressure point,” adding: “We cannot afford to make the same mistake [as our forebears who] stumbled into … ghastly wars” such as World War I. The British Army head’s comments prompted anxiety about potential conscription – something Gen. Richard Shirreff, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, said it was time to consider.

Leaked German intelligence documents suggest Berlin expects Russia to launch another wave of attacks to overwhelm Ukraine and is scrambling to come up with contingency plans in the event Russian troops march westward from Belarus.

The Israel-Hamas conflict threatens to spread violence across the Middle East, with Iran’s so-called “Axis of Resistance” – including Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Yemen’s Houthi rebels – increasing their attacks on Israel and commercial shipping routes, prompting the U.K. and U.S. to launch a series of devastating strikes by air and sea.

Farther East, Taiwan’s election of a new democracy-loving president has angered Beijing even further, with a Chinese invasion of the island nation in the coming years looking ever more likely. And all the while, Kim Jong Un stands by with his fist clenching the keys to North Korea’s nuclear arsenal, ready to plunge his foes into radioactive winter.

Russia: U.S.-made missile was used to SHOOT DOWN plane carrying Ukrainian POWs, killing all 74 passengers – NaturalNews.com

Russia: U.S.-made missile was used to SHOOT DOWN plane carrying Ukrainian POWs, killing all 74 passengers

Moscow has claimed that a U.S.-made Patriot missile was used in the downing of a Russian transport plane loaded with Ukrainian prisoners of war (POWs).

Russian President Vladimir Putin disclosed this information in a televised appearance. He said:” The plane was shot down – it has already been established for certain – by an American Patriot [missile] system. This has already been established by forensics.”

Putin’s remarks were backed by the Investigative Committee of Russia (SKR), the country’s main federal investigating authority. In a statement, the agency said Ukraine fired two missiles from a staging area in the Kharkiv region not far from the village of Liptsy – some 10 kilometers from the Russian border. The Jan. 24 attack on the Il-76 transport plane killed all 74 passengers – 65 Ukrainian POWs, three Russian troops and six Russian crew members – on board. (Related: Moscow accuses Kyiv of shooting down Il-76 aircraft filled with Ukrainian POWs.)

The SKR also confirmed that it had identified the type of weapon used to shoot down the Il-76 over the Belgorod Region. During the probe, investigators from the agency found 116 missile fragments bearing English inscriptions.

One fragment contained the word “Patriot security classification,” attesting to the fact that it was a missile from the U.S.-made system. Another fragment contained the word “Raytheon,” one of the companies that designed the air defense system. Moreover, an extensive series of forensic tests found that the composition of the explosives indicates they were most likely produced abroad.

Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, also weighed in on the probe. “U.S. citizens must know where their money is going,” she said. Zakharova also accused the Biden administration of making the American people “accessories to a bloody tragedy.”

Kyiv neither confirms nor denies involvement

A Western official meanwhile said “a missile strike rather than any kind of mechanical failure” is to blame for the transport plane’s destruction, adding that it was “almost certain the missile was fired from Ukrainian territory.” They continued: “Obviously, the aircraft was operating in a pretty volatile area quite close to the front line – so [it] was at higher risk.”

Kyiv has not confirmed nor denied its role in the attack, with the country’s authorities insisting that Moscow did not inform of Ukraine’s responsibility in guaranteeing air security over the Belgorod region at the time. In contrast, Russia has insisted that Kyiv received all the relevant information prior to the attack.

Moreover, Russia has provided no evidence that Ukrainian POWs were indeed on board the transport plane – and has refused requests by Ukraine to hand over the bodies of the Ukrainian victims. The word war between the two has also intensified, with Moscow accusing Ukraine of killing its men and Kyiv dismissing Russia’s assertions as “rampant propaganda.”

Andrii Yusov, the spokesman for the Ukrainian Main Directorate of Intelligence, reaffirmed in a televised appearance the need for an international probe into the crash. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has also called for an international investigation, but acknowledged that this would likely be hampered as Russia has full control over access to the crash site. Putin meanwhile said Moscow was also “insisting” on a probe, but remarked that “there are no international organizations willing” to take part.

COVID Vaccines Are Most Dangerous in the First Trimester of Pregnancy, Study Suggests

A new study was published in JAMA yesterday.

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2814537

Its objective was to prove that COVID vaccines are “safe for pregnancy.”

Meaning  In this large population-based study, vaccination of pregnant individuals with mRNA COVID-19 vaccines was not associated with increased risks of neonatal adverse events in their infants.

Indeed, authors show that infants born to vaccinated mothers experience fewer adverse outcomes compared to unvaccinated mothers:

Results  Of 196 470 newborn infants included (51.3% male, 93.8% born at term, 62.5% born in Sweden), 94 303 (48.0%) were exposed to COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy. Exposed infants exhibited no increased odds of adverse neonatal outcomes, and they exhibited lower odds for neonatal nontraumatic intracranial hemorrhage (event rate, 1.7 vs 3.2/1000; adjusted odds ratio [aOR], 0.78 [95% CI, 0.61-0.99]), hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (1.8 vs 2.7/1000; aOR, 0.73 [95% CI, 0.55-0.96]), and neonatal mortality (0.9 vs 1.8/1000; aOR, 0.68 [95% CI, 0.50-0.91]).

The authors admit:

It is unlikely that mRNA COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy directly reduces neonatal mortality, although others have suggested that such a protective effect is biologically plausible.12 The vaccine does not seem to pass the placenta or induce placental inflammation, and could not be traced in cord blood.25,26 The current study’s results could not elucidate the mechanisms that explain why infants of vaccinated individuals had lower risks of some outcomes including mortality. Unmeasured confounding due to vaccinated individuals being healthier may have contributed to the lower neonatal morbidity and mortality associated with COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy.

I will show that the data provided in the study, including subgroup and trimester analysis, suggests that Covid vaccines given to pregnant women may be dangerous to fetuses if the mothers were vaccinated during the first trimester.

Let’s look.

This study of infants born in Sweden and Norway during the pandemic includes valuable and hard-to-find data:

  • Sensitivity analyses show subsets of mothers, for example, vaccinated mothers who did not have COVID-19 during pregnancy.

  • Breakdown by the trimester of COVID vaccine exposure.

When looked at together, the data mentioned above raises serious questions about Covid vaccine safety in pregnancy.

Those who tout the benefits of maternal COVID vaccination often state that vaccines prevent COVID-19, which is dangerous to fetuses. This study has a sensitivity analysis that belies this theory.

First of all, COVID vaccines did NOT meaningfully reduce infections during pregnancy, as Table 1 shows:

The sensitivity analysis data shows that the infants whose mothers avoided COVID-19 during pregnancy have similar outcomes to all infants (including the ones whose mothers had Covid during pregnancy):

Therefore, “vaccine protection against infection” does not reduce the relative risk of adverse outcomes. Looking at the subset of mothers who did not have Covid shows that infections have nothing to do with the relative risk of those adverse outcomes.

The authors suggest that “unexplained confounders,” sometimes described as the “healthy vaccinee effect,” may be the reason for the reduced relative risk of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated outcomes.

Imagine a perfectly useless but harmless substance: a saline shot or a sugar pill. A treatment of that kind, given to pregnant mothers, would not result in disparate outcomes based on the trimester of exposure. Stating the same in scientific terms, the relative risk of adverse events experienced by newborns whose mothers were given a harmless substance would not depend on the trimester of exposure.

Why, then, do newborns whose mothers were vaccinated in the first trimester of pregnancy (when major organs form) experience approximately 50% greater rates of adverse postnatal events than those born to mothers vaccinated in the third trimester?

Take a look at this:

Rates of almost all negative infant outcomes (circled in blue) are worse for first-trimester infants compared to third-trimester infants.

Can we perform a statistical test on some of these differences to see whether the disparity in the outcomes in the two samples could arise due to pure chance? Look at the above outcome, “neonatal thrombocytopenia,” highlighted in red.

The proper statistical test for this is called a “two-proportion Z-test”:

The data shows that infants exposed to the vaccine earlier (in the first trimester of pregnancy) are more likely to have thrombocytopenia after birth. P = 0.00001 suggests that the difference did not occur due to chance.

The only explanation that I can personally muster is that Covid vaccines, given in the first trimester, somehow interfere with fetal development and make thrombocytopenia (and a host of other outcomes) more likely to happen.

The same effect appears when looking at “all adverse outcomes.” See supplement:

Infants exposed in the first trimester have 0.68/0.49 – 1 = 39% greater risk of having any adverse outcome.

How can a “safe vaccine” that “does not affect pregnancy” make the first trimester of exposure more dangerous?

A similar finding was recently seen in another study: the risk of neurodevelopmental disorders was similarly higher for first-trimester exposure compared to third-trimester:

ht tps://www.igor-chudov.com/p/male-infants-and-male-rat-pups-disproportionally

A sub-analysis of pregnancies that avoided COVID-19 shows that the “reduction in adverse outcomes due to vaccines” is likely due to confounding, not reduction in infections.

At the same time, the unexplainable disparity between infants exposed in the first trimester and infants exposed in the third trimester suggests that the Covid vaccines negatively affect fetal development.

What do you think? Is there a pattern suggesting that Covid vaccines are not safe for pregnancy? Let us know what you think – and feel free to disagree with me!
