Law enforcement officials and many school administrators say they are crucial for preparing and safeguarding students, but methods vary widely and now include drills that child trauma experts say do little more than terrify already anxious children. "A whole new cottage industry has emerged where people who don't know anything about kids are jumping in and adapting protocols for groups like police officers or people preparing for combat," said Bruce D. Perry, founder of the ChildTrauma Academy, whose clinical team assists maltreated and traumatized children through counseling, research and education. As a result, Dr. Perry said in an interview, "The number of developmentally uninformed, child- uninformed and completely stupid ideas is mind-numbing."

npr: More than 80% of parents in the U.S. support the teaching of climate change. And that support crosses political divides, according to the results of an exclusive new NPR/Ipsos poll: Whether they have children or not, two-thirds of Republicans and 9 in 10 Democrats agree that the subject needs to be taught in school. A separate poll of teachers found that they are even more supportive, in theory — 86% agree that climate change should be taught. These polls are among the first to gauge public and teacher opinion on how climate change should be taught to the generation that in the coming years will face its intensifying consequences: children. And yet, as millions of students around the globe participate in Earth Day events on Monday, our poll also found a disconnect. Although most states have classroom standards that at least mention human-caused climate change, most teachers aren’t actually talking about climate change in their classrooms. And fewer than half of parents have discussed the issue with their children.

@amandlastenberg we see you 👏🏾👏🏿👏🏼👏🏽 . . Excerpt from article by Vanity Fair: “One of the most challenging things for me to do was to walk away from Black Panther,” Stenberg, who uses “they-them” pronouns, revealed. “I got really, really close and they were like, ‘Do you want to continue fighting for this?’ And I was like, this isn’t right.” . . In the film, Shuri is T’Challa’s genius little sister, the teen whiz who keeps Wakanda so technologically advanced. Like the rest of the principal cast, Letitia Wright is a dark-skinned black actor.

I recognize 100 percent that there are spaces that I should not take up and when I do take up a space it’s because I’ve thought really, really critically about it and I’ve consulted people I really trust and it feels right.” . . blackpanther wakanda representation wakandaforever: Vulture @vulture Amandla Stenberg backed away from #BlackPant to leave space for darker-skinned actors: "I recognize 100 percent that there are spaces that l should not take up." @amandlastenberg we see you 👏🏾👏🏿👏🏼👏🏽 . .

theonion: HOUSTON—Saying the data confirm that the demographic is so awful and mean, a study released Friday by a team of sobbing, red-faced scientists at Rice University found that 100 percent of teenagers are “huge fucking assholes.” “They’re all just jerks and we hate them,” said sniffling lead author Phil Gunnig, who in a voice hoarse from crying added that both males and females between the ages of 13 and 19 consistently demonstrated signs of being “stupid idiot turds” who act like they’re your friends at first but just end up making fun of your research techniques when you turn your back. “Once children reach puberty and become teenagers, their brains rapidly develop quite sophisticated cognitive structures for treating people like shit even though you’re nice and didn’t do anything to them and just want to be left alone. Especially Jenna, who’s such a bitch.” Gunnig reportedly then fled the press conference in tears, locked himself in his office, and announced through the door he was never coming out again.: 10000 (f Teenagers Huge Fucking Assholes,' Confirms Study By Sobbing, Red-Faced Scientists יס theonion: HOUSTON—Saying the data confirm that the demographic is so awful and mean, a study released Friday by a team of sobbing, red-faced scientists at Rice University found that 100 percent of teenagers are “huge fucking assholes.” “They’re all just jerks and we hate them,” said sniffling lead author Phil Gunnig, who in a voice hoarse from crying added that both males and females between the ages of 13 and 19 consistently demonstrated signs of being “stupid idiot turds” who act like they’re your friends at first but just end up making fun of your research techniques when you turn your back. “Once children reach puberty and become teenagers, their brains rapidly develop quite sophisticated cognitive structures for treating people like shit even though you’re nice and didn’t do anything to them and just want to be left alone.
