Fifth Ward Elementary in Reserve, Louisiana is located right next to a plant — a location the EPA first warned about seven years ago over concerns about toxic emissions. NBC News’ Cynthia McFadden is on the ground reporting on residents’ anger and why children are still attending the school.

At Churchill High School in Eugene, Oregon, parents have expressed outrage over a class assignment asking students to write a "sexual fantasy" story excluding penetration or oral sex with no possibility of passing sexually transmitted infections.

Eighteen years ago, I published an article in the Stanford Law Review which documented for the first time the enormous breadth and scale of race-based admissions preferences in law schools. At most law schools, the undergraduate grades (UGPA) and median LSAT scores of enrolled Black students were two standard deviations below those of white students at the same school. Outside of a handful of “Historically Black” institutions (where racial preferences were minimal), Blacks in law school were not faring well.

Over the last five years, the promotion of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has become a “central concern of higher education” in the United States. On its face, this “new trinity of American higher education” sounds like a virtuous (and long overdue) set of governing principles.

An Arizona school District is helping put power back in the hands of parents with what is benign described as an anti-woke hotline.

This hotline is designed to let parents report inappropriate curriculum, such as lessons that teach Critical Race Theory. Superintendent Tom Horne calls it the Empower Hotline. He says parents should report lessons their children are being taught at school they are concerned about. Although topics like CRT and gender ideology are mentioned, the Empower Hotline is for any lesson that worries a parent.

Last month, a Palestinian rights group filed a federal complaint against George Washington University (GW), alleging the institution allows discrimination against Palestinians to persist unabated on campus.

Palestine Legal filed a federal complaint with the United States Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, demanding it investigates what the organization describes as a “years-long, hostile environment of anti-Palestinian racism.”

Nebo School District in Utah has stirred controversy by instructing middle school students to write an essay arguing for the consumption of insects rather than cows as part of an English assignment.

According to Fox News Digital, the assignment was based on the premise that the mass production and consumption of bug-based foods is more environmentally friendly than that of beef. Some students were even given extra credit for actually consuming the bugs, which the District sourced from a commercial site.

A new bill passed in Kentucky will allow parents to challenge obscene books and teachings in public schools.

Lawmakers in the Republican-led House voted 80-18 to pass Senate Bill 5 after a lengthy debate on Wednesday evening.

The vote was split mostly along party lines.

However, the bill still needs to be signed by Democrat Governor Andy Beshear to become law.

Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, is set to become the first higher education institution in the state to offer its students access to emergency contraception via a vending machine on campus.

The machine will provide 24/7 access to the "morning after pill" at a discounted price that has yet to be determined. The move follows the example of Boston University and George Washington University, which have already adopted similar schemes.
