    One can barely read, listen to, or watch the news for a few minutes before coming across a news piece exclaiming how the police were called to the local school to fix some major disruption.

    While extreme episodes of school violence are certainly tragic, there is a disturbing trend among educational institutions to respond to more commonly occurring problems with a heavy-handed, big government approach. Issues that have been in the classroom for 50 years are now being demonized, propagandized, sexualized, and even criminalized.

    The hilarious graphic shown below is a fantastic commentary on the state of things.

    Why did their children turn out to be duds if they were so great?

    10th grader suzy becomes pregnant

    1970 - Suzy is sent away to "visit her aunt for a semester." When she comes back and is back to school, nothing is mentioned about her absence. If anything is mentioned, she talks about her aunt's place. Her parents live in shame, Neighbors and acquaintences act like nothing happened. The father is forever known as a "bad boy" and ostracized.

    2015 - Suzy's classmates are all excited for her and go out and try to get their own kids. The school provides day care, offers parenting classes and allows her to nurse in the school cafeteria. She receives enough from the state that she can afford to move into her own place. Soon, she is pregnant again. Her apartment is a regular stop for cops and child welfare people.

    Gwartney, way way back when in the 1920s, one of my great aunts got pregnant out of wedlock. They sent her away to have the baby and then she was institutionalized and never seen again because of her amoral behavior. They brought the baby back and he was raised as though his grandmother was his mother.

    I like the one where 1970s Pedro was a hardworking immigrant who went the extra mile to graduate, while today's Pedro is lazy and shiftless and changes the way things are taught in school forever to get out of learning English.

    I think that was my favorite.
