Should schools segregate kids by race one hour per week? Is that progressive thinking or a flashback to segregation? One of New York’s most elite and progressive elementary schools is conducting an experiment of race, by separating students temporarily. The idea is to separate the students according to race once per week for 45 minutes so the kids can discuss any issues that they may not feel comfortable talking about in front of other races. Should more schools adopt this program or do you think it’s a bad idea? PLUS: What do you do when soldiers fail to fight? Do you fight for them? Pentagon chief Ashton Carter says that Iraqi forces "failed to fight" in Ramadi, which has fallen to Islamic State militants, adding the troops lacked the will to defend themselves. They were not outnumbered, and they vastly outnumbered the opposing force, and they failed to fight and withdrew from the site. If the Iraqi army will not fight to defend their own cities should we continue to fight for them? ALSO: Have you heard about the Charlie Challenge? Some teens are trying to summon a demon named Charlie. The Charlie Challenge has gone viral across social media platforms. The challenge includes putting two pencils on a piece of paper in the shape of a cross. The words “yes” and “no” are written in boxes outlined by the pencils. Then the participants say “Charlie, Charlie are you here?” Do you believe in the occult? Do you believe demons and the devil are real? Is this another example that parents should keep a closer look at what their kids do on line?
