A Norwin, Pennsylvania School Board voted 5-4 to end a requirement for homeroom teachers to put on CNN10 in their homeroom classes for students to watch. The requirement to have on CNN was described as “compact on-demand news broadcasts ideal for explanation seekers on the go or in the classroom.”

After the School Board’s vote, teachers will have the freedom to “use their discretion on whether to keep TVs turned off, show the newscast, or show patriotic videos on events such as Veterans Day or the attack on Pearl Harbor” reported Trib Live.

The school district added CNN 10 as “required viewing material” in 2019. One mom, Ashley Egan disapproves of the school showing the channel, saying broadcasting its affiliated programs is “feeding [her son] every day that CNN is a label you can trust.”

Egan added it “is not unbiased” for the program to be recommending students “visit our friends on CNN.com.” Advocates for the programming, however, say the content is a learning tool. Kristen Ummer, an eighth grade social studies teacher said it was supportive of the school district’s mission statement of civic engagement.

Pennsylvania has been one of the most discussed states in national media due to conflicts between parents and school boards.

    Force feeding children to watch only one News Broadcast is akin to indoctrination of the Liberal Left’s propaganda, which we ALL know is opinion based and a mouthpiece of the DNC! Forcing students to watch one and ONLY ONE News Broadcast is ludicrous and counter-productive to teaching critical thinking! It’s worse than mandating CRT!!!

    Schools are there to teach our children about history, math, science. These teachers have no right to indoctrinate our children to their views of politics. And CNN news is biased. They do not give the news that’s happening they give it clipped out according to what they think the news should be. Time for parents and grandparents to stand tall against the teachers unions get rid of them all. Private schools and give the parents the money to choose where they go to school. We the taxpayers want our dollars to go to the right people. The teachers unions have proven to have failed our children. Masking our children and keeping them on zoom. Shame on all of them they should all be fired!

    I personally prefer MSNBC to CNN. But it would appear the anti-CNN trumpist fascists wouldn’t want anything other than FOX, OANN, NEWSMAX, or Breitbart.

    CNN can be used as a bad example of biased journalism.

    The problems in America are from toxic leftist Jews, not conservative Jews.

    “Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society.” ~ Antonio Gramsci, apostate-atheistic Jewish Italian communist

    FINALLY!!!
    I was wondering when the realization of the EVIL propagation was dawning on the REAL TEACHERS and cadre of the school systems!
    The Communist News Network has deliberately lied to the world for many, many many years. As a matter of fact, ever since Ted Turner was beaten by the Baron Bic, from France in the America’s Cup regatta. Research it yourself. You will then see how long the demonizing of ALL the “””reporters””” has been going on. From mediocre, to bad, to execrable, then purposefully LYING to the public. ON PURPOSE! To proselytise their own DEMONIC CONVERSION to spreading LUCIFERIAN views.

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
