Maybe Democrats have decided that they don't need parents to win elections. That certainly wasn't the case in Virginia, where Glenn Youngkin (R) was just inaugurated as governor because his opponent thought schools knew better than moms and dads. And it probably won't be the case in Michigan either, but that hasn't stopped the state's tone-deaf Democrats from telling parents to get out of education -- and stay out.

"Not sure where this 'parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids' is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire," the Michigan Democratic Party posted over the weekend. "The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught. It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent -- but the entire community, the public."

After School Satan ClubsWARRENTON, Mo.,  -- Atheists are at it again, this time in Moline, IL, using a ploy to disrupt schools and prevent the exercise of free speech that involves Christian viewpoint.

In 2001, a Supreme Court ruling, Good News Club v. Milford Central School District, allowed for non-school-sponsored religious clubs to be held on public school property after hours. Good News Club® (operated by Child Evangelism Fellowship®) and other privately sponsored clubs must be given the same access to facilities accorded any other group. Because Good News Clubs can't be shut down legally, opponents use a ploy to alarm parents and school boards.

Adina Lundquist has received awards, including the 2021 Global Star of Excellence Award, for her role in creating a lifesaving ventilator app.

An Anderson University communication alum was part of an award-winning team that created an app to train medical workers on the use of lifesaving ventilators during the peak of the COVID-19 global pandemic. 

Adina Lundquist, who graduated with degrees in communication and advertising in 2014, helped populate the app with training content centered around how to use ventilators manufactured by her employer, Medtronic. Ventilators are critical devices in the care of patients severely impacted by COVID-19. 

In the early days of the pandemic, ventilators became in short supply and companies like Medtronic and others had to produce and distribute the machines at a rapid pace.
