Brazilian Woman Rescued After Being Enslaved as a Maid for Nearly 4 Decades A Brazilian woman has been rescued after almost four decades of being enslaved as a maid and forced into marriage. The 46-year-old woman, who had been enslaved since the age of eight, was found in a small apartment in Patos de Minas. She had worked for the family for most of her life without pay or any time off, according to labor inspectors. According to inspectors, the victim was given up as a child and given to the family of a university professor at Unipam, Dalton Cesar Milagres Rigueira. There, the woman worked for most of her life without pay or any time off.

#HigherEducation #indoctrination #wokecancelculture Leaving the Blight of Higher Education: Part I — Farewell, Students In May of 2020, my wife and I took our retirement after more than 30 years of teaching college, the last 20 years of which we spent at what I will call Upstate Consolation University, a mid-tier state college somewhere in the Northeast. My wife taught French and I, a wide variety of courses, some 23 altogether over the years, in the English Department — concerning which, more to come. Apart from wanting what remained of our active lives to be ours and not the institution’s, the main motive for our decision was the intolerable decline of Upstate. It had gone from a more or less serious academic organization, typically liberal but not yet politically correct or “woke,” into a copy of the ideological collective that, in the manner of Star Trek ‘s “Borg,” has digested and transformed virtually every center of post-secondary education in the nation.

Politicians, public health officials, school leaders, and teachers unions have gravely harmed children and families by falsely asserting (with assists from some in the media) that reopening schools is incredibly dangerous for teachers and children and by blithely minimizing the costs of closing schools. The latest study, published by the Center for Education Data & Research, finds data suggesting that “school districts’ choices to offer hybrid or fully in-person instruction are not significantly contributing to COVID spread in communities when there are low or modest pre-existing case rates in the population.” Simplified: unless your county is already a hot spot, opening schools won’t cause more spread. The study relied on complicated econometric models and regressions that attempt to control for confounding factors, so we shouldn’t take it as Gospel. But it does line up with most existing research and expert opinion. The American Academy of Pediatrics encouraged open schools, with masking and distancing rules. Meanwhile, data shows that closing schools hurts students and parents, particularly minorities and poor families. A McKinsey study from December found “students, on average, started school about three months behind where we would expect them to be in mathematics. Students of color were about three to five months behind in learning." Data from Maryland earlier this month found, in the words of Washington Post reporter Donna St. George, “more than 36 percent of ninth-graders from low-income families failed the first marking period in English. That compares with fewer than 6 percent last year, when the same students took English in eighth grade.” Fairfax County, Virginia, found “F marks increased from 6 percent of the all marks to 11 percent of all marks, an 83 percent increase. The amount of increase among racial/ethnic, gender, and other student groups was highest among Students with Disabilities (111 percent increase), and English learner [students] (106 percent increase).” Missing in-person schooling is bad for students' mental health. Hopefully, schools will reopen in the new year, rather than continue to give in to special interest politics. --It’s Christmas vacation.
