GUEST OPINION: Thank The New Jersey State Board of Education For This High School Graduation Mess

The NJ Department of Education (NJDOE) is keeping complete statewide test results under wraps, but partial reports released to school districts show that just 39% of students who took the first ever administration of the New Jersey Graduation Proficiency PRESS RELEASE Assessment (NJGPA) last March passed the English Language Arts section, and just 50% passed the Math section. The low passing rates are a direct result of the State Board’s last-minute decision to raise the passing score on the new exam and reject a lower benchmark recommended by both the test vendor and the NJDOE’s own assessment officials. Only one thing is preventing a graduation crisis for this year’s senior class: legislators responded to the State Board’s action by suspending the exit exam requirement for the class of 2023 and directing the NJDOE to use the new exam as a “field test” only. Citing the “unique and pressing challenges” of... Read more →

CNB Guest Opinion: Parents Give Disney A Wake-Up Call

November 29, 2022 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Disney’s latest box office failure: The most common word used by reviewers of Disney’s new film, “Strange World,” was “bombs.” Disney expected to bring in $30 to $40 million over Thanksgiving weekend but netted only $18.6 million. That’s pretty bad considering it cost $180 million to make the flick. It is expected to cost Disney $100 million when the final numbers are posted. The Wrap called it “one of Disney’s biggest failures ever,” saying it was the “biggest animated bomb in 20 years.” What happened? Those who live inside the Hollywood bubble can’t figure it out. But parents can. “Strange World” was the first animated movie for children featuring a gay teen romance. That’s not what most parents want their kids to see: they don’t want to sexualize their children. Disney was founded as a family-friendly organization. In more recent... Read more →

Despite having ample time to comply with these procedures, the Council forced through a last-minute emergency rule, leaving the public no time to respond. The lawsuit seeks emergency relief stopping the Dec. 5 hunt. The hunt... Read more →

For much of the world, there’s been a progressive nature to the legalization, regulation and production of cannabis, with many countries around the world have changed their stance to be more liberal when it comes to the consumption of the drug.

It comes at an interesting time for the nation and other addictive substances within society. With more people overdosing on opioids than ever before, whilst addiction counselling is becoming more common than ever before, many people are suggesting that the priorities of the government aren’t quite where they should be, and more focus should be given to these problem areas.
