Alaska educators are being encouraged to adopt a new educational model that claims to be more child centered. Coined “Whole Child,” the model was developed by ASCD, an educational reform group that aims to transform schools by encouraging them to focus more on emotional, social and physical health issues. Promotional flyers for ASCD’s Whole Child approach emphasize broad themes about empowering students, expanding health services and meeting the needs of the “whole” child. Unmentioned in...

Last month U.S. Attorney General William Barr spoke at the University of Notre Dame Law School, sharing his thoughts about religious liberty in present-day America. Among the many striking statements in Barr’s speech were the following: religious liberty is “a right towards men,” but “a duty towards the Creator,” and a “duty … precedent both in order of time and degree of obligation, to the claims of civil society.” Also, “We have no government armed...

Students in Fairbanks will soon be exposed to radical sexual ideologies in English and social studies classes if proposed curriculum changes are approved by the Fairbanks North Star Borough School Board this spring.

The initial draft is online after a curriculum committee finished its first round of work in October. According to the school district’s website, the high school...

Drag Queens danced and posed for photos with young children during an Oct. 19 event at Anchorage’s flagship library. The seventh installment of Drag Queen Story Hour at the Loussac Library featured two men in heavy makeup, wearing wigs and exotic dresses with high heels and fake breasts. The men, who went by the names “Scarlett” and “Ivana”, were joined by a costumed woman called “Hank Vandickerson.” The three took turns reading stories that encouraged...

I watched the lawsuit and litigation play out this summer between the City of Anchorage and the Downtown Hope Center. The entire incident leading to the lawsuit would be great satirical fodder for the pages of The Onion, but it very much happened. Were it a short story, you could be forgiven for the title “Crazy-Town in A-Town.” And given that the City of Anchorage was forced to pay $100,000 in legal fees to the...

Social conservatives won five on nine races during the Oct. 1 city and borough elections in Fairbanks. Incumbent Mayor Jim Matherly won just under 50% of the vote to fend off Planned Parenthood endorsed challenger Kathryn Dodge who took nearly 44% of votes. Overall, Matherly had 1,720 votes to Dodge’s 1,516. Matherly was seen as the social conservative choice. In the days leading up to the election a voter guide issued by the Alaska Family...

Many Alaska schools now mandate that teachers refer to students by their preferred gender identity, even when it contradicts the student’s biological sex. In 2016 the Obama administration instructed schools to treat students in accord with their preferred gender identity. While that instruction has since been repealed under the Trump administration, some school districts in Alaska mandate that students be allowed access to restrooms and locker rooms that align with their chosen gender identity, and...

About 250 people packed into Gallos Mexican Restaurant in South Anchorage last week to listen to a presentation by a leading national bioethicist who concluded that transgenderism is fundamentally a psychological disorder. Father Tad Pacholczyk’s Sept. 26 talk warned against using invasive surgeries and powerful hormones to help a person “transition” to a sexual identity that does not match their biological sex. Pacholczyk’s, who serves as director of the National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) in...

The Oct. 1 Fairbanks North Star Borough elections could have a significant impact on pro-life laws and policies dealing with LGBTQ issues. This according to both Alaska’s leading abortion proponents and pro-life advocates. Planned Parenthood, which provides nearly all abortions in Alaska, and the pro-life and pro-family Alaska Family Action have issued conflicting endorsements for key races. Pro-life or pro-abortion mayor? For the mayoral race Planned Parenthood has endorsed Katheryn Dodge in her attempt to...
