    Depends on what the latest data sets show.

    I do realize that the link I’m providing has little to do with education in the U.S. but it is an example of what a typical union does in the world of politics and social biases.

    Till real Americans start standing up to these nutcases like she did it will only get worse. Of course, I do understand that can be dangerous now to do so. Just venting, I guess.
    Glad she got even financially at least. Although I don 't think most lawsuits should be over a million bucks but that's just a thing with me.

    The plaintiff does not get that money, only a portion. (but more than enough for most of us) My problem with all of this is we need lawyers to fight for us and they are expensive so so many things slide.

    TL:DR - The problem started in 1965-1975, involving undergrad and grad students and young professors who saw their protests against the Vietnam war in light of radically transforming higher education.

    This is exceptional, although I have only watched half of it so far. The world economic forum will have all of its slaves lined up in no time.

    When you see these two videos, it is hard to believe there is not a plan from decades ago to dumb down the population so the Bilderbergs, Rothchilds, WEF or whomever, after using us to conquer our 'wilderness' and having today's technology, can selectively get rid of us. But of course, to raise this alarm makes us conspiracists.

    Here's a clue: they can't answer basic questions about U.S. history and geography, or even basic questions about time and distance, but they can easily name the Kardashian sisters, who won the NBA championships, etc.

    But here's the catch: the same type of pop entertainment appears in places like Finland and Singapore, but they are among the top academically. And they have very different educational systems.

    I understand this and realize lawyers get the bulk of the money, but I
    m talking about personal lawsuits where somebody gets multimillions.
    Congress talked limiting the amount, but nothing ever happened. I think a million is plenty for one person.

    The New Jersey chapter of the National Education Association (NEA) has created an ad labeling parents who speak out at school board meetings against Critical Race Theory (CRT) and gender identity lessons as “extremists.” The NJEA claims that the children's parents are denying everyone's kids the "world class education" that they deserve.
