Dept. of Education Releases Report Documenting Number of School Shootings. NPR Says There’s Just One Problem…

Published

A new report released by the Department of Education has stated that there were 235 school-related shootings in the U.S. during the 2015-2016 school year, but NPR was only able to actually confirm less than five percent of these incidents.

In other words, the organization tasked with educating children — a horrifically bad idea in and of itself — is drinking the liberal Kool-Aid and conflating the numbers to help the anti-gun agenda of progressives.

Of the 235 school-related shooting incidents, NPR only confirmed 11 of them. It reported 161 schools or school districts told NPR no shootings had occurred, four were miscategorized, and 59 could not be either confirmed or unconfirmed by NPR.

The huge discrepancy calls into question the reliability of data disseminated by the government on the pressing issue of school safety.

The Department of Education told NPR it relied on school districts to give accurate information in its annual Civil Rights Data Collection. It asked for the 2015-16 school year, “Has there been at least one incident at your school that involved a shooting (regardless of whether anyone was hurt)?” It published the eye-popping number—”nearly 240 schools (0.2 percent of all schools)” — this spring.

It was nowhere close to the left-wing advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety’s data on the question, which listed 29 shootings at K-12 schools during the same period. Only seven schools appeared on both the government’s and Everytown’s lists:

A separate investigation by the ACLU of Southern California also was able to confirm fewer than a dozen of the incidents in the government’s report, while 59 percent were confirmed errors.

One of the biggest reasons for the discrepancy in the Civil Rights Data Collection number was the Cleveland Metropolitan School District listing 37 incidents in its district alone for that year. Roseann Canfora, the district’s chief communications officer, told NPR that 37 schools had in fact reported incidents involving “possession of a knife or a firearm,” the previous question on the form. The district slotted the number in the wrong line in the survey.

This whole situation sheds light on a serious problem. When you have a biased organization that is infiltrated by left-wing zealots like the Department of Education is, you have to be weary of any data that comes out without interpreting it according to the definition of terms being used by said individuals.

The left redefines things all of the time as a means of moving the goal posts, meaning they know the actual facts don’t support their ideas or agenda, so they create “facts” of their own. It’s how they work.

If there’s ever been a time to consider yanking kids out of public schools, now is it.

Hail to the chief!

President Trump may no longer work from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning something big to keep the MAGA movement alive. Here’s the latest on 45, via Washington Examiner: WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — Former President Donald Trump gave nothing away about his plans for life after the White House as he dined with friends at his golf club on Friday. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner as he sat at his regular table in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club. An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction. CONTINUED: Trump has let it be known that he is considering another run for the White House in 2024. Reports also suggested that he was considering setting up a new party, the Patriot Party, as a vehicle to run for office. He brought a small staff with him to Florida. They are working out of the Mar-a-Lago club as they begin to ramp up operations. Here’s some random noise from anti-Trump, anti-free speech, anti-American Twitter… https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1352735841366335488 https://twitter.com/cabot_phillips/status/1352734530524729344 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352723083300401152 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1352752362604146689 https://twitter.com/WSJ/status/1349493316468023303

AOC: I Didn’t Attend Inauguration Because I Didn’t ‘Feel Safe’ Around Republicans

UNITY!

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loved history (or her country), she would’ve been in attendance at the inauguration on January 20 – however fraudulent it may be. You’d think someone like AOC would want to see history being made when Kamala Harris was sworn-in as the first female vice president – however fraudulent it may be, also. Instead, the loudmouth from the Bronx decided to push her style of “unity” by saying Republicans are dangerous. Swell. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during an interview on Thursday night that part of the reason that she did not attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration was because she does not feel safe around Republicans. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force, and unity, and you weren’t there. Explain it.” She blabbered, “Yeah, you know, I think we also had very real security concerns as well, as you mentioned earlier. We still don’t yet feel safe around other Members of Congress and…” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfnj-mjqJf8&feature=emb_title
