Twitter has spent years assuring the public that it will crack down on trolling, harassment, and violent threats. It’s also pledged to tackle “misinformation” and “unhealthy conversation,” using these loaded terms as excuses to ban a wide range of anti-progressive dissidents from the platform. But when innocent conservative high school kids are flooded with violent threats, targeted harassment and doxing on the basis of media-promoted misinformation, Jack Dorsey and his staff seem to do nothing — it even briefly promoted the smears.Over the past 48 hours, an angry mob of Twitter users — many of them with blue checkmarks next to their name, signaling endorsement of their messages by the company — have flooded the platform with disgusting abuse, violent threats, and calls to harass innocent students of the Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky. The wave of attacks was sparked by fake news — a claim, based on a clipped video … [Read more...] about Twitter Allows ‘Verified’ Calls for Violence Against Conservative High School Kids

St. Paul Public Schools on Wednesday announced new start times for most of its schools, despite reservations from board members. The changes, coming in fall 2019, are driven by studies that have found early-morning wake-ups are especially hard on teenagers. With few exceptions, middle and high schools will start an hour later, at 8:30 a.m. Elementary schools that already start at 9:30 will see no changes, while nearly all of the rest will start at 7:30 instead of 8:30. After decades of on-and-off discussions, the school board voted in December 2016 to change start times in 2018. Then, in October, the board voted to postpone that move until 2019.
