CFPB Accuses Corinthian Colleges Of Cheating Students

Corinthian owns Everest Institute, Everest College, WyoTech and Heald colleges, which collectively have more than 70,000 students and annually receive $1.4 billion in federal financial aid. The company is winding down all its operations in an agreement with the U.S. Department of Education.


Darrien Hunt's family and friends remember 'a boy in a man's body'

Darrien HuntA verbal slip-up by his aunt seems to sum up how friends and relatives viewed Darrien Hunt before he was shot dead by police in Utah last week. “He was just like a normal teenager,” Cindy Moss said of her nephew, who was 22.

As they try to understand how Hunt came to be killed after walking around a strip mall in Saratoga Springs with a decorative samurai-style sword, people who knew him are seeking explanations in a youthfulness that they say belied even his relatively tender age.

Science education group raises red flag about Texas textbooks

Texas textbooksThe new social studies textbooks up for consideration this week by the Texas Board of Education have already come under heavy fire for their emphasis on America’s Christian heritage. A new analysis just out by the National Center for Science Education raises more red flags — about the textbooks’ treatment of global warming.

The NCSE, which has clashed with the Texas school board before over its treatment of evolution, points to “deeply concerning” sections in several geography, world culture and economics texts. One sixth-grade book, for instance, introduces global warming this way: “Scientists agree that Earth’s climate is changing. They do not agree on what is causing the change.”


Homecoming queen Scarlett Lenh puts transgender issues front and center

transgender homecoming queenAt Sand Creek High School in Colorado Springs, Colo., over the weekend, Scarlett Lenh was named homecoming queen – no doubt a high point in the 16-year old’s life so far.

What makes the event newsworthy is that until recently Scarlett was known as Andy Lenh, a biological boy who identifies as a girl.

Transgender issues now touch virtually all aspects of American society – public and higher education, news media and entertainment, politics, and the armed forces.
