Buffalo schools fail kids when teaching that all White people play part in systemic racism: Rufo - Fox News

Buffalo schools have adopted a curriculum that pushes the controversial idea that all White people perpetuate systemic racism, while 80% of its students fail to reach proficiency in reading and writing, an editor said Wednesday.  City Journal editor Chris Rufo, during an appearance on "The Ingraham Angle," said the "diversity czar" of Buffalo public schools was caught on tape saying she believes that America's sickness leads some White people to believe Black people are less than human.  One of the district's instructional materials also includes the assertion that "all White people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism." He said the narrative of system racism has also spread to schools across the country, which shifts attention away from "their own abysmal failure to educate kids."

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bachelor's Degree Center (https://www.bachelorsdegreecenter.org/), a free guide to traditional and online bachelor's degree programs in all disciplines, has released four rankings of the best bachelor's in physics degree programs in the US:

25 Best Bachelor's in Physics for 2021
25 Best Online Accelerated Combined Physics BS/MS  for 2021
5 Best Online Bachelor's in Physics for 2021
10 Most Affordable Bachelor's in Physics for 2021

The Top 3 Best Physics Bachelor's Programs for 2021 are: 1) Stanford University; 2) Massachusetts Institute of Technology; 3) Harvard University. The Top 3 Combined BS/MS Physics Programs for 2021 are: 1) University of Maryland Baltimore County; 2) Illinois Institute of Technology; 3) Northeastern University.

A complete list of all institutions ranked is included at the end of this release.

"Physics is the kind of major no one quite gets – very few people outside of the scientific field know exactly what a physics degree is or what a physics major does," the editors of Bachelor's Degree Hub write; "But for students who are interested in careers in the hard sciences, engineering, education, or any number of other technological fields, a bachelor's in physics is an excellent first step." A degree in physics can open up career opportunities in a multitude of directions, "such as engineering and medicine. Jobs with a degree in physics can be found in healthcare, too. Roles in this sector are varied, ranging from laboratory technician to optical engineer." Places of employment are just as varied: "A variety of jobs that are physics degree-oriented are research-based. These positions can be found in the public sector, such as in government agencies and public universities. Private-sector employment is also available at private universities and companies involved in everything from telecommunications to the automotive industry." A degree in physics can take physics majors almost anywhere - literally and figuratively.

Bachelor's Degree Center editors rank both online and on-campus programs, knowing that students' needs are as diverse as the students themselves. As the editors explain, "Instead of applying to an undergraduate program for four years and going onto a master's program, the accelerated physics degree allows you to transcend from one to the next in less time." On the other hand, BDC editors counsel, "a person can choose to earn a physics degree online in his or her free time around his or her other responsibilities." Every student brings their own priorities to their degree, and Bachelor's Degree Center's rankings of the best physics degrees are designed to give prospective psychology students the most diverse set of options possible.

Bachelor's Degree Center has been providing advice, resources, and rankings on the best traditional and online bachelor's degree programs since 2014. Completely independent and unbiased, BDC is working to be the ultimate resource for new high school graduates, working adults returning to school, and nontraditional students.

Inspired by daughter's strength, Alecia Amezcua earns master's degree through UNK - UNK News

KEARNEY – Alecia Amezcua made sure her daughter Ariana was in attendance last Thursday as she walked across the stage to receive her master's degree in Spanish education.

After everything they've been through, there was no way Amezcua was going to celebrate the achievement without her.

"She's a lot stronger than I am," Amezcua said. "She's the one who kept me going."

The past nine years have been anything but easy for Amezcua and her daughter, who has undergone four brain surgeries to remove a tumor that was causing severe epilepsy. The first two surgeries occurred in 2012, when Ariana was just 7, and she began experiencing seizures again in 2015.

Amezcua started the University of Nebraska at Kearney's online master's program in Spanish education in January 2014, but was forced to put her educational plans on the back burner following her daughter's relapse.

"She couldn't go to school full time and I was trying to work full time while also home schooling her through the district," said Amezcua, who is in her eighth year teaching Spanish at Norfolk High School.

The single mother from Madison stopped pursuing her master's degree so she could care for her daughter, who had her final two surgeries in 2017.

"Once I knew she was OK, I started taking classes again in 2019," said Amezcua, noting that Ariana's "resilient attitude" helped her get through the tough times.

"It was really hard to juggle it all, but I learned so much and it's helping me with my own career," she added. "That's why I kept going, because it really has helped me be a better teacher."

Amezcua chose the UNK program because she could complete her degree entirely online and she "heard some really good things about it." In addition to enhancing her Spanish skills and classroom instruction, a master's degree boosts her salary and allows her to teach dual-credit courses through Northeast Community College.

She also hopes it shows Ariana, now a sophomore at Norfolk High School, how important higher education is. The 15-year-old was seated alongside her grandmother and step-grandfather during Thursday's commencement ceremony – a moment that felt "unreal" for Amezcua.

"It's still not quite hit me yet," Amezcua said. "I think it's awesome that I get to show people what happens when you work for something that may be more difficult, but you just keep on going."
