Barbers Hill ISD STOP the gender discrimination against our boys
According to the Superintendent of Barbers Hill ISD, "this is how we have done it for the last 30 years, we hold our students to a higher standard and this is why we show a record of great excellence in the district." While we all strive for excellence in our daily lives, and we too hold our children to a high expectation, what does this have to do with the length of their hair, specifically our boys? DeAndre Arnold, an exceptional student with a bright future has been told by Barbers Hill ISD board members that he will have to finish out the remainder of the school year in In School Suspension, ISS, and he will not be able to walk in the graduation ceremony with his peers, if he does not cut his dreadlocks to the required length standards set by the school district in the handbook. DeAndre has been growing his hair for the last 6 years, during those 6 years as a student in BHISD he was told his hair could not go past his collar, touch his ears or go below the eyes. In order to be in compliance with the rules he put his hair in a ponytail. Then he was told he could not wear hair accessories because he was a boy, so he could not wear a ponytail because he had nothing to secure it with. Then they changed the rules saying boys could wear hair accessories but if the hair was not in compliance when let down then even when up in a ponytail it was still in violation. So when up in a ponytail, the only manner he wears it to school, DeAndre's hair does not go past his collar, does not touch his ears and it isn't in his eyes. But because WHEN LET DOWN it is not in compliance he is being told ponytail or not he has to cut 5-8 inches off to be in compliance with the rules. CHANGE THAT SEXIST RULE BHISD IT'S THE 21ST CENTURY AND GENDER DISCRIMINATION WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. PLEASE SUPPORT THE CHANGE AND SIGN THIS PETITION

Change the name for the definition in the Dictionary from Dunning Kruger to Donald Trump
The following definition for Dunning-Kruger effect: In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is. It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from the inability of people to recognize their lack of ability. Without the self-awareness of metacognition, people cannot objectively evaluate their competence or incompetence. I propose that we change the name of this definition to better reflect the Genius of our times Donald Trump. I feel the name should be changed to the "Donald Trump effect" as he is the best candidate of modern times to help our youth better understand this definition. Thanks!

Haleys Law: Seizure Smart Schools across Pennsylvania
Support Haley’s Law HB1975 for Seizure Safe Schools. In the state of Pennsylvania there are 16,900 children who suffer from epilepsy, not including the children who will have a seizure with out the epilepsy diagnosis. That is 33,800 parents who send their kids to school with worry for their child’s health. These kids sit for 8 hours a day in classroom where seizure first aid is not known by the adults who care for them, leaving them at risk for injury and seclusion due to a illness they can not control. Haley’s Law HB1975 will ensure our kids stay safe and make the most out of their learning experience. This is a grassroots effort fully supported by the National Epilepsy Foundation of America, Eastern Pennsylvania Epilepsy Foundation, and both Teachers and Nurses Unions. This legislation also ensures teachers will never be held liable for injury sustained during a seizure with a “good samaritan” clause. The training is also free provided by the Epilepsy Foundation of America Continuing education credits will be provided after the 45 min training is complete According to the Epilepsy Foundation of America there are over 3 million Americans living with epilepsy. About half a million of them are children. It is important that schools are equipped with the necessary tools and training to help keep our children safe. Seizure Safe Schools is a legislation ensuring that school personnel are provided with seizure recognition and seizure first aid training. Five states have successfully passed this bill: Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Texas, and New Jersey. So please join us in bringing “Haley’s Law” HB1975 introduced by Representative Brandon Markosek, to the commonwealth of Pennsylvania by signing this petition. Please help us show our government officials how much support is behind this effort in getting this legislation passed and how important it is to keep our children safe. Your voice matters, you can help keep these children safe. Thank you for your support!
Petition to Orange County Board of Education
Support OCSA's Charter Appeal to Orange County Board of Education
The nationally recognized Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) transforms lives by providing arts and academic education to a diverse student body, impacting thousands of students from more than 100 cities across Southern California. For the past 20 years, OCSA has had a positive and collaborative relationship with its charter authorizer, Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD). However, in March 2019, SAUSD issued an unfounded invoice to OCSA demanding more than $19 million dollars for 17 years of special education costs not incurred by OCSA, violating terms of the legally binding charter and Special Education Local Plan Area agreement. This event and the resulting litigation have caused the previously positive relationship between OCSA and SAUSD to deteriorate. For more information, please read this press release. Then, for the first time in our history of four charter renewal petitions, on December 10, 2019, the SAUSD Board voted to conditionally approve OCSA’s charter renewal petition for the next five-year term (2020-2025). SAUSD’s conditional approval was contingent upon OCSA’s agreement to address the findings provided in a SAUSD staff report, or else the renewal petition would be considered denied. OCSA reviewed the staff report and found that it utilized outdated documents, unverified sources, misrepresented data, and mischaracterizations of OCSA’s program. It did not provide specific revisions that OCSA could make in order to achieve an unconditional approval. Additionally, California Code of Regulations requires an appeal to be filed within 30 days of denial. SAUSD knowingly included language in their resolution that enabled them to retroactively change their conditional approval to a denial after OCSA’s 30-day window to appeal the decision would have closed. This effectively denied OCSA its due process rights and appears retaliatory in light of the ongoing litigation. At the direction of OCSA's Board of Trustees, OCSA rejected the findings in the staff report, rendering SAUSD’s decision a denial. OCSA is now appealing to the Orange County Board of Education (OCBE), hopeful to begin a new partnership in education with the county as its charter authorizer. Please sign this petition to show your support of OCBE approving OCSA’s charter as written or under reasonable conditions.

Terminate Spanish River High School Principal William Latson
Donate to the cause at gofundme.com April 2018 Spanish River High School Principal William Latson said that "Can`t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event. This is not only offensive to a lot of people but it crosses the line into a hate crime or an anti semitic incident that the palm beach school district should launch a proper investigation into the comment made by William Latson which failed to do so. Palm Beach County School District needs to suspend him with out pay until a proper investigation is completed and add proper training for all school staff on how to teach about the Holocaust. PBCSD needs to terminate him for his comments. I am pushing for a expansion of the Holocaust education program across the state of Florida, from more classes on the subject to additional training for teachers. It is our job not only to stand up for the truth but also be the voice of the victims that cannot speak on their own behalf.

We need to hold the school district accountable and they need to properly train school staff and educators how to teach the subject on the Holocaust properly.
