Disappearing Students Syndrome (DSS): A phrase created by me to describe a phenomenon taking place across the United States, affecting both privately and publicly funded schools, from Kindergarten all the way through University levels.
“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”-George Orwell (aka Eric Arthur Blair)
Incomplete (i-e Tip-o-the-Iceberg) list of publicly announced education related layoffs, shutdowns and education crimes (and now Mother Earth is doing her part to destroy institutionalized education), October 2017:
Arizona: Tucson School District warning of mass layoffs caused by $4.5-million to $6-million USD in budget cuts due to crashing enrollments (an estimated 880 students are exodusing the district this year). It’s been revealed that the federal taxpayer funded Havasupai School is closed most of the year, and when it is open many parents don’t send their kids because they don’t like how it’s being operated, meaning local students are not getting educated.
California: A new study shows that Muslim students are the most likely to be bullied at school, by so called christians. The most common incident are Muslim girls being attacked by ‘christians’ for wearing a scarf. Hey, you dumb-ass ‘christians’! There was a time in ‘America’ when Christian women covered their hair with a scarf as well, damn-it, cause I remember my Catholic mother used to do that up until the mid-1970s when it fell-out-of fashion with ‘christians’! Two Los Angeles cops being investigated after being caught bullying students. The police defend themselves saying it’s part of a taxpayer funded program to straighten-up non-compliant students, however, video emerged showing some of the students being bullied are as young as six! Los Angeles School District accusing taxpayer funded charter school Partnerships to Uplift Communities of covering up conflict-of-interest evidence involving LA school board member Ref Rodriguez. A female counselor with Sweetwater Union High School District accused a male San Diego Unified School District counselor of sexually harassing her, the man was fired. University California Riverside laid off 15 InfoTech employees. Kindergarten Hidden Valley Satellite destroyed by wildfire. God powerless to stop wildfire from destroying ‘his’ Redwood Adventist Academy. About 80% of Cardinal Newman High School burned. Wildfire destroyed the classrooms of Luther Burbank Center for the Arts (where George Carlin recorded It’s Bad for Ya!). Extreme levels of lead found in 30 drinking water fountains at three San Francisco public schools. In Shingle Springs, Ponderosa High School apparently suffering an outbreak of viral meningitis.
Colorado: It’s been revealed that some school board candidates are being funded with what’s being called Dark Money from for-profit businesses who hope to get taxpayer funded contracts.
Connecticut: Regional #10 Public School District joined other districts in warning of layoffs due to massive taxpayer funding cuts. The city of New London slashed its school budget by $4.2-million USD, and warning of layoffs, because of expected state taxpayer funding cuts.
Delaware: For some reason parents are ‘mass exodusing’ their kids from Christina School District, reducing taxpayer funding. According to local news reports four out of ten students in the district are being sent to non-district schools. Most are going to charter schools while others are attending schools in other districts, apparently the biggest complaint about Christina School District is a “lack of discipline”.
Florida: A female Miami-Dade school principal ‘reassigned’ after being caught driving while intoxicated. In Tampa, an Adams Middle School employee is accused of offering money to students in exchange for sex. Palm Beach County School District continues blaming third graders for their teacher sexually abusing them! The incident happened in 2005, but after 12 years of hemming-and-hawing the district administrators still insist the nine years old girls “conducted themselves in a careless and negligent manner” and were “old enough to appreciate the consequences of their actions.”
Georgia: A mom is accusing the Big Shanty Intermediate School of ordering its students to dress-up as Civil War characters, she says one of the students dressed as a plantation owner and told her son “you are my slave”. The school replied thusly “No student was required to dress in period attire and any student that did so was not instructed, nor required, to dress in any specific attire.”
Idaho: A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) survey reports that one in four Gem State high school students are bullied, prescription drug abuse is up and that teen suicide contemplation is at a ten years high! The local economy is so bad that marching band students at Pocatello High School couldn’t afford to pay the mandatory fees and had to turn to a GoFundMe operation so they could attend competitions (a far cry from when my eldest daughter was a proud Pokey marching band member, and we could barely afford the fees then)! Speaking of bad economies, eleven cash-strapped schools got federal USDA taxpayer funded grant money for much needed new kitchen equipment. Also, 120 cash-strapped schools on the eastern side of the state took part in a pathetic ‘two-day five-minute’ Idaho Lottery scratcher contest, it was the largest act of desperation, I mean scratcher contest to date! Dietrich School District quietly settle a boy-on-boy sexual assault and racism lawsuit. One football player was sexually attacked by three other football players in the high school locker room in 2015. The details of the settlement are currently sealed in federal court.
Illinois: Parents of a now dead Naperville North High School student say he was bullied by the dean and the school cop, who repeatedly threatened to ruin the student’s life by charging him with sex crimes, other students confirmed the school is using Israeli style scare tactics! A Lake in the Hills junior high student charged with hate crimes after posting a video that resulted in a ‘soft’ lockdown of the school, police refuse to give details. In Fairview Heights, after almost 30 years retailer Parent Teacher Tools shutting down after Thanksgiving, the owner blames online competition.
Indiana: Carmel Clay School District suspended its superintendent and its human resource officer without explanation, saying they will conduct a review “in a manner that respects the confidentiality of its employees’ personal matters.” A Plainfield High School English teacher in trouble after her students ‘published’ 17-hundred magazines on how to ‘survive’ dating at the school, which apparently promotes group sex. By the way, the English teacher is also the district’s 2017 Teacher of the Year. At Needham Elementary School, a nine years old autistic boy was handcuffed by school cops! Police accuse the boy of attacking other students and two teachers.
Kansas: Haven School District shutting down (pending public hearings) one of three elementary schools due to skyrocketing operating costs and crashing enrollments.
Maryland: God not powerful enough to stop the state from canceling taxpayer funded vouchers for Trinity Lutheran Christian School, because the school refuses to enroll homosexual students. Seven Bel Air High School students in trouble after posting ‘racial’ pics on social media. School administrators say it’s a copycat incident as, apparently, such pic posting is happening at schools around the country. In Montgomery County, a now former school cop sentenced to a piddly 18 months for having sex with a female student! A former Baltimore County school superintendent being accused of spending taxpayer money to visit 19 cities in 13 states: “It’s incredibly unacceptable that someone who is the CEO of the school system is away 38% of the time. You have to show up at your job.”-Jim Brochin, state senator
Michigan: Administrators at Fordson High School revealed a “rogue” hazing incident took place on campus, but refused to give details saying only that “disciplinary measures have been taken” with possible legal action as well. East Rockford Middle School learned its water might be toxic after a hazardous dumpsite was found near the water supply. The dumpsite was being used by shoemaker Wolverine. One upset parent said of the shoemaker “How many more dump sites are we going to find?”
Missouri: A now former employee of Grandview School District was sentenced to just over five years in federal prison for stealing $1.6-million USD from the school district during a ten years period.

Saint Louis Community College warning of another round of layoffs, blaming state taxpayer funding cuts and the disappearance of more than 10-thousand students since 2011!
Nevada: The Washoe County School District says installing gender neutral toilet rooms will cost local taxpayers at least $500-thousand USD per school! It’s part of a plan to build new schools in a district that’s supposedly experiencing skyrocketing enrollments. The new elementary and junior high schools will not have separate boys and girls toilet rooms.
New Jersey: Monroe Township warning that all schools could be shutdown, not because of lack of funding, but because of mold. A mom is in big trouble for sending her kids to a school in a district they don’t live in. According to news reports, the mom used to live in Middletown but moved to Keansburg last year, yet she continued sending her kids to school in Middletown. A judge, and the state Commissioner of Education, ruled she owes taxpayers in Middletown $39,178.80! Outside Orange High School a policeman got into a fight with twin sisters who attend the school. Apparently they were ordering pizza at a nearby eatery when the cop began questioning one of the girls. When her sister approached the cop told her to get away, which she didn’t and he grabbed her by the hair, then the fight started. A school employee tried to break up the fight and was given a ticket. The sisters say the cop also harassed them the day before, he is now suspended pending the results of an investigation.
New York: A fight broke out at Poughkeepsie High School, it was between students and parents. Originally it was between students, but then parents showed up and got involved. Administrators say an ‘external’ threat was made towards the school and police were called in, no details about the fights or threat were made public.
North Carolina: A janitor at East Lee Middle School arrested for using a cell phone to secretly record people in the faculty toilet room. Apparently the janitor isn’t very smart because the first person to use the toilet found the cell phone. At Wakefield Middle School, police are looking for an adult ‘black’ male who allegedly tried to rape a 16 years old female as she walked to school. After the 2016 arrests of intoxicated school bus drivers, a local TV station conducted an investigation and discovered that “12 out of 81 drivers had traffic violations in the last seven years.”
Ohio: Students are being warned to stay away from talking drones. Akron Public School District says a talking-flying-drone was attempting to lure elementary school kids off the campus.
Pennsylvania: A lawsuit accuses school administrators of punishing students who report harassment and abuse. Students are told to avoid their tormentors, if that doesn’t work the victims are then sent to an alternative school for troubled students. Apparently administrators are afraid of confronting the bullies. Somebody strung-up a ‘black’ baby doll at Coatesville Area High School, the unnamed student who did it said it was just a joke. It was revealed that in September a new state law forced Reading School District to block 2-hundred students from going to school because they were not vaccinated!
Puerto Rico: Hurricanes Irma and Maria shutdown the territory’s education system.
South Dakota: Sturgis Brown High School was scheduled to play the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, but the game, as well as homecoming events, are now canceled after ‘white’ students were caught vandalizing a car by painting “go back to the rez” on it. Female students at University of South Dakota‘s law school are demanding more toilets, saying male students have more ‘bathroom options’ than women!
Tennessee: God powerless to stop ‘his’ Presbyterian founded King University from eliminating more than a dozen jobs due to The Rapture, I mean what I call DSS. Northeast State Community College slashed $5-million from its budget and is shutting down its four years old Bristol campus right before Xmas, because the operating costs for the newer campus outweigh revenues from student enrollments. After 81 years Memphis College of Art announced it will shutdown by 2020, due to crashing revenues caused by what I call Disappearing Students Syndrome.
Texas: In Houston, a now former counselor with charter school KIPP Explorer Academy charged with indecent behavior with girls, some cases going back to 2012. Stupid McKinney High School teachers in trouble for using the recent video of a student being taken down by Dallas cops as part of a ‘criminal justice’ class, without considering the effect on the student who still attends the school. Conroe Independent School District being sued for the sexual bullying of a girl during the 2015-16 school year. The family is so distraught they moved to Alabama. Students are suing schools because they don’t want to say the Pledge of Allegiance, saying it’s their constitutional right! The Pledge was actually approved by Congress in 1942 and originally made no mention of ‘god’. It’s title, The Pledge of Allegiance, was named in 1945, ‘god’ was added in 1954 (in direct violation of the 1st Amendment). The original Pledge salute was what many people now call a Nazi salute. I don’t remember anything in the Constitution about the Pledge of Allegiance, however, the federal Supreme Court has ruled several times that people cannot be forced to say the Pledge: “….no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.”-Justice Robert H. Jackson
By the way, several anti-Pledge lawsuits were filed by ‘christian’ denominations.
Vermont: A mom, who is also a chiropractor, is facing legal challenges after refusing to sign a vaccination exemption because none of the pro-vaccination statements printed in the document are based on actual ‘evidence’: “I feel like I’m being backed into a corner. I’m being bullied!”-Naomi Malik
Virginia: Chesapeake School Board voted unanimously to rezone the district because of a huge disparity in school enrollments, parents seemed to be unanimously against the plan .
Washington: Kent-Meridian High School spending extra tax money on extra security due to increased threats by ‘christians’ against Muslim students!
Wisconsin: Beaver Dam Unified School District approved a $38-million USD budget, which will cost local taxpayers more money: “Having either an increased revenue limit or a decrease in state aid can shift a district’s funding to its local tax levy. We happen to have both in the same year, not to mention that this is the first year of the levy for the referendum debt.”-Anne-Marie Woznicki, director of business services
Wyoming: Some Trump supporting parents within the Teton County School District going ballistic over a multiple choice answer concerning George Orwell’s 1945 book about leftist revolutions, called Animal Farm. One question had multiple choice answers to explain why one character ordered another to shoot a gun. One facetious answer was “He was shooting at Trump”. Trump loving parents want the test, and possible the book removed. Animal Farm is about a leftist revolution that devolves into a ‘reign of terror’ as the leaders of the leftist movement discover that they can manipulate the masses into eliminating anybody who questions the new leftist system. Teton County School District apologized for the test. I find it ironic and hypocritical that rightists want to eliminate the test/book.
Dumbing Down September 2017: “NOT ONLY DID THEY CHANGE HER GRADES…THEY OSTRACIZED HER!”
