Gender politics don’t belong in the classroom, but Title IX protections do (The Washington Post)

On Feb. 25, a friend and Arlington Public Schools parent inadvertently discovered a meeting that evening of a working group charged with developing procedures to implement the district’s transgender/gender-nonconforming students policy. We attended as nonparticipating observers and were stunned.

At that meeting, an Arlington Gender Identity Allies advocate lamented that a planned reading of “I Am Jazz,” a storybook about a transgender student, had been scuttled at Patrick Henry Elementary School because of concerns over parents’ reactions. The speaker vowed that the event would happen. [Read More]

Trump Admin Designates Iranian Fighting Force as Terror Group, in Global First (Washington Free Beacon)

The Trump administration formally announced on Monday that it is designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC—the regime’s paramilitary fighting force—as a terrorist entity, the first such designation by the United States against a foreign country’s military, according to U.S. officials.

The designation represents the strongest salvo yet by the Trump administration to choke off Iran’s international resources and target its regional terror operations, which continue nearly unfettered in hotspots such as Yemen, Syria, and Iraq. [Read More]

‘Boy crisis’ threatens America’s future with economic, health and suicide risks (USA Today)

In an astonishing disclosure about the two greatest dangers to the future of America’s economy, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell revealed on CBS’ “60 Minutes” last month the peril posed by “young males”: young males not looking for work; being addicted to drugs (think opioid crisis); and being unprepared for the transition to technology. Powell posits that this economic problem is also a national security problem. He implies that we ignore this crisis at our own peril. Yet his warning is ignored.

In my half-century of research on boys and men, I have discovered that there is, in fact, a boy crisis, that it is a global crisis, and that it is particularly egregious in America. The crisis is more than economic. It is multifaceted, with each facet magnifying the others. [Read More]

Cory Booker introduces Senate bill on slavery reparations (FOX News)

Sen. Cory Booker on Monday introduced a bill that would study the possibility of reparations for descendants of slaves, embracing a push that recently has caught the interest of fellow 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.

The senator from New Jersey said Monday that “this bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country. It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed.” [Read More]

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen speaks for first time since resignation announcement (CBS News)

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen abruptly resigned Sunday, as the president continues to fume over continued illegal border crossings. CBS News first reported Nielsen’s impending departure, which Mr. Trump confirmed in a tweet after a 5 p.m. meeting with Nielsen at the White House.

Nielsen spoke out for the first time since announcing her resignation outside her house Monday afternoon, telling reporters there is a “humanitarian crisis” at the border and emphasizing the need to address that. Her resignation is effective Wednesday, although Nielsen didn’t leave her home in Virginia until early Monday afternoon.  [Read More]
