Troy Oracle ignores truth, pushes radical vaccine agenda: ignores parents’ bonafide concerns

Check out this dangerous one sided BS from these fools over at Fullerton’s Troy High School newspaper called “The Oracle”

Re:  CA SB277, Vaccinations

Dear Ms. Kremer and Mr.  Patel,

Vaccine Senate Bill SB277 is currently moving through the California State Senate, effectively eliminating personal belief exemption (PBE).

As with many issues, unless we delve deeply we do not have a full understanding of both sides of the argument.  With the CA bill to eliminate PBE, a nerve has been struck with those that have either done research that examined the other side of vaccine safety or had personal experience in which their child was vaccine injured or died.  On a personal level, I am the parent of three who, up until five years ago, vaccinated my children.  It wasn’t until I stumbled across information, not in mainstream media and not conveyed by my children’s pediatrician, that I began to look at aspects of vaccines that led me to change my mind about them.  It wasn’t until SB277 and the prospect that PBE would be taken away, vaccinations forced that a considerable amount of information emerged that cannot be ignored.

A lot is at stake, here.  As reported by the U.S. Health and Human Services Agency, over $2.9 B has been awarded in vaccine injury court for vaccine injuries and deaths.  Therefore, it only follows that this law, if enacted, will necessitate that the parent risk injury or death to their child in order to attend school.  U.S. Supreme Court Justices have stated that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.”  This is the reality and for this reason, alone, the parent must retain the right to vaccinate, or not.  Aside from this, there are undeniable facts that call into question all aspects of vaccine safety.  Indeed, one might wonder whether vaccines should be halted, altogether, until proven safe. In the interest of understanding and adequately presenting both sides of this argument, I would like to pass on to the journalists and op ed authors at Troy Oracle aspects/information/source documents that might not have been considered in the debate.   Please consider the following:


History of vaccines, particularly historical trend rate of measles infection relative to date of vaccine introduction

Vaccine efficacy

Risk of injury or death from vaccines

Vaccine shedding

Vaccine policies in other countries; India’s lawsuit against Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for vaccine injuries, sterilization of Kenyan girls via vaccine

Vaccine court:  damages paid by taxpayer, not by vaccine maker; vaccine makers immune from liability; how many go to court; how many are unreported

Charges of corruption in US CDC science/studies, whistleblower cases

US Supreme Court Justices:  Vaccines “unavoidably unsafe”

Pharmaceutical interests/role in vaccine sales

New vaccines in the pipeline (nearly 300 in 2012)

AMA Code of Ethics Opinions 9.133, 8.08

U.S. and California State Constitutions

Nuremburg Code (experimentation)

As with any new and contrary information, an open mind is required.  I am certain the integrity of the Oracle journalists will make certain that, even though current beliefs may be challenged, a new understanding of vaccines will emerge and reporting integrity will prevail.  Given all of this, I hope you will support the necessity of  “inform consent.”

Thank you for your consideration of the material and attachments listed below.  These are a very few, of course.

Robert F Kennedy Jr in Vermont: “Big Pharma’s game plan is to remove parental informed consent”

Currently, in the state of Pennsylvania, case #2:10-cv-04374-cdjUNITED STATES VS MERCK is pending. The Department of Justice is involved. Former virologists now whistleblowers allege that Merck falsified data with the MMR II vaccine in order to meet the 95% efficacy rate which is the benchmark required by the FDA to maintain its monolopy on the mumps vaccine which extends to the MMR II. This suggests vaccine failure and fraud, not unvaccinated kids, as the reason for the outbreaks.

Repeal Immunity for Drug Companies Against Vaccine Injuries         Petition by mur

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama


Why should the drug companies be above the law? If vaccines are safe, there would be no need to grant the drug companies immunity. In 1986 Congress gave the drug companies immunity against all lawsuits from vaccine related injuries. The Federal Government is now paying out billions in damages to parents whose children have been hurt by vaccines. So the drug companies continue to rack up huge profits while the tax payer continues to pay the damages.

Vaccine Fact Summary

  1. In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” Bruesewitz v. Wyeth LLC, 131 S. Ct. 1068, 179 L.Ed.2d 1 (2011).1
  2. National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) vaccine injury and death payouts2:
  3. Total to date (1989-2015):
    b. Average annual payout 2005-2009: c. Average annual payout 2010-2014: d. Cases pending: 1,943

$ 3.1 Billion
$ 75,630,051 per year $221,822,386 per year

  1. There is vast underreporting of vaccine adverse events. FDA: As few as 1% of serious adverse reactions are reported.3 CDC: Only about 10% are reported.4 Congress: Has heard testimony that medical students are told not to report suspected adverse events, 5 despite federal law requiring doctors to report suspected adverse events.6 National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) survey: 1 out of 40 doctor’s offices (2.5%) in New York report a death or injury following vaccination. 7 Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS): Only 10% of serious vaccine adverse events are reported.8
  2. The Federal Court of Claims lists about 140 attorneys that accept vaccine injury and death cases.9 This number has been steadily increasing in recent years.
  3. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (NCVIA) shields vaccine manufacturers from liability for the death and disability caused by their vaccines. There is no financial incentive for manufacturers to produce safer vaccines.10
  4. 90-95% of 1900’s infectious disease decline preceded the vaccines. Absence of vaccination will not bring back infectious disease rates of pre-vaccine days. Graphs:,
  5. According to the CDC:
  6. Vaccines are 85 – 95% effective (5 – 15% of children do not develop immunity from their vaccines), and most outbreaks start in vaccinated children.11
    b. The median vaccine exemption rate in the U.S. is 1.8%.12 There are more than 5+ times more non-immune *vaccinated* children than exempt children.
  7. Exempt children can get natural immunity, without even developing symptoms.13 You can’t tell a child’s immune status based on their immunization status.
  8. The American Medical Association Code of Medical Ethics recommends “medical, religious, or philosophic” exemptions to immunizations for medical doctors.14
  9. The pharmaceutical industry is the biggest defrauder of the federal government under the False Claims Act.15 In the last 5 years, $19.2 billion were returned from attempts to defraud federal health programs, more than double that of the previous 5 years (as of February 2014).16
  10. In 8 years (2004-2012), there were twenty pharmaceutical company settlements in the $345 million to $3 billion range.17 Criminal fines in the $100’s of millions are common, and have been as high as $1 billion (Pfizer 2009, GlaxoSmithKline 2012). This is routine business practice.
  11. Merck, manufacturer of the mumps vaccine, is going to trial in two separate lawsuits for allegedly falsifying the efficacy rate of its mumps vaccine. One suit was filed by former employee-whistleblowers, the other by pharmaceutical competitors.18

1. There is insufficient data available to determine whether or not vaccines provide a net benefit.

Alan Phillips, J.D.

  1. There’s no way to determine the risk of vaccine injury or death for any given individual.
  2. Individual freedom of choice provides a necessary “check and balance” to the pharmaceutical industry’s overreaching, liability-free, marketing influence over vaccine policy and law.
  3. Young adults are not required to risk their lives with mandatory military service, but newborn infants are required to risk their lives with a Hep B vaccine, for a disease they are not at risk of acquiring or spreading unless the mother, who can be tested, is infected. This is not reasonable.
  4. Parents for their children, and adults for themselves, should be allowed to make vaccine decisions, in consultation with the healthcare professional of their choice.

    This was nothing more than the pro vaccine side.

    This is probably a subject that should not have been in their newspaper. It has the potential of influencing those too young to make this huge decision, vaccines.

    We are living in dangerous times.
    Our government now can and does spy on us regularly to “supposedly” keep us safe.
    Yet they continue to allow millions of illegals including terrorists to walk across our borders into our county.
    At there same time are freedoms and rights are being taken away from us at every level of government like a steamroller.
    Go to any local school board meeting or any local city council meeting and see how those in power routinely ignore anyone who happens to have the courage to speak out against a particular motion or policy.
    We have created monsters at every level of government. They are arrogant, deceitful, self-serving and sometimes even cross the line of criminality. All for one purpose and one purpose only, which is to serve their own selfish wants.

    • #12 by Troy teacher bullies on May 30, 2015 - 9:53 pm

      I agree and many of the Troy HS teachers are nothing but bullies. If a parent speaks up the Troy teacher will take it out on the kid, as in retribution. This has been going on way too long at Troy. It is all about the teachers running the school and very little about the students.
      There are good Troy teachers, but they are diminished by these teacher bullies.
      There are so many problems that get resolved behind closed doors; parents would be very surprised to learn that the unfair issues are commonplace.

      The grades are deflated at Troy, teachers showing bias or acting inappropriately are not disciplined. It’s all about Troy and maintaining the ‘image’ and underneath it all it is pretty disgusting.

      • #13 by Anonymous on May 30, 2015 - 8:29 pm

        If Troy is so bad then why do you have your children there in the first place?

        • #14 by Right to fair treatment in school on June 3, 2015 - 11:44 am

          Kids desire to attend their neighborhood school. They should be able to do so with the expectation that they will be fairly treated, that their grades will not be deflated, that teachers will not pick on them, that there will be disciplinary action taken (if appropriate) against the teacher if they are not following the Ed Code, etc.

          What is going on at Troy is about the teachers and maintaining Troy’s image, not about the students best interests.

          It must be very tough for the good teachers, which is the majority, at Troy.

          The school district is responsible for what is and has been going on at Troy high school. They allow the teacher bullies to prevail, they run the school. The school board and administration must be afraid of them and that is why they won’t deal with this huge problem that has been going on for many, many years. As with anything, if you don’t deal with bad behavior it usually gets worse. The kids are paying the price for this.

    For those suggesting that Troy participates in grade deflation, this could be no further from the truth. What Troy participates in is tough academics and difficult tests. If your grade is below what you want, it’s because you did not meet the mark. There is some favoritism amongst Troy teachers, but never to the extent that a truly hardworking student will get below a grade they deserve. This is coming from a student that has gotten subpar grades at times and is not liked by some teachers. Ultimately, just take responsibility for your actions.

    • #24 by former Troy student on December 4, 2015 - 7:34 am

      You may speak for yourself, of course, but the fact of the matter is that there has been grade deflation at Troy. One teacher, in fact, admitted it in telling the parents that “in any other high school” this class would be an “honor’s level” class. This has gone on in other classes, as well. That is fact.

      What happens is that the grade-deflation lowers the GPA, which can result in thousands of dollars in lost scholarship money, as .1 difference in GPA makes the difference. In my case, it resulted in me not being eligible to received $27,000 in scholarship money. On top of that, it diminished the amount of money the college alumni association was willing to give me because of a deflated GPA.

      You may speak for yourself and you may have bought into the Troy “tough academics and difficult tests” but in the real world, it means nothing.

      I know you do not want to believe these things about Troy, but that’s the reality.

      • #25 by Another former Troy student on December 5, 2015 - 1:47 pm

        But that’s what Troy High is known for. True, classes are more academically rigorous and people can probably be valedictorians at their home high schools than if they were at Troy. Grade deflation? Tell that to the 10 valedictorians and 18 salutatorians in 2015. Troy attracts the top notch students from around the districts because of the academic rigor, and unfortunately not everyone can be at the top. People have to learn to accept that they can not handle the rigor as well as others can, but acceptance shouldn’t mean stopping to improve oneself academically because somebody else is always going to be better. Screw that, I’m still going to get a good education and strive to be my best.

        I haven’t heard of any teacher curving grades down. Since Troy is well known for the academic rigor, most colleges (most I repeat) compares GPAs to other students’ GPAs from Troy because not every school is able to offer as many honors level courses as Troy does. And honestly, because of Troy’s competitiveness and academic rigor, college is a freaking breeze to me. I didn’t want to go to Troy at first, and certainly there are things at Troy that can be fixed. But I honestly feel a lot better going into the “real world”. Because that’s what the real world is. As much as one would want to be idealistic, the reality is that the real world is competitive and challenging.
        If one can’t handle it, well sorry, but that’s the reality.

  15. #26 by Troy Student on December 3, 2015 - 10:07 pm

    A strict teacher who doesn’t give you the grade you want is not a “bully.” Also, this article cited many pieces of evidence regarding why vaccines are unsafe. There are, perhaps, 50 sources on this page detailing so. However, this page is ignoring the thousands of articles published in peer reviewed scientific literature that support the safeness and efficacy of vaccines. A majority of the sources on this page are not even linked to scientific literature, but rather, to other writers who have the same view as this page. This does not give any scientific backing in that regard. I am not saying vaccines are without side effects. There is the oft chance that your children can develop complications, even life threatening ones. But everything in science is probability. If something works well 95+% of the time, it should be used.
    My last contention is that I do agree with this page that personal belief as a valid reason not to submit to vaccines should be allowed. We have the right to make decisions. Whether those decisions are sound or not are another issue.

    • #27 by Anonymous on December 4, 2015 - 10:12 am

      “However, this page is ignoring the thousands of articles published in peer reviewed scientific literature that support the safeness and efficacy of vaccines. A majority of the sources on this page are not even linked to scientific literature.”

      Troy Student: Further research would reveal that the “science” has been bought off. (take a look at the movie “Bought”) I hear that most cases of vaccine injury or death go unreported and that the courts have awarded $3.2 billion in lawsuits to victims or survivors. We the taxpayers pay those awards, not Big Pharma, not the doctors. Rigged? Yes. Are you aware of the CDC whistleblower case? This is the dilemma; it would take an open mind to apply discernment, sifting and consideration of decades of evidence and with such an important decision no less is demanded. Does a high school student have the time to devote to such an endeavor?

      Really, have you gone through all of the sites and determined, in fact, that none are based on science? You could have not.

      “If something works well 95+% of the time, it should be used.” Really? You should check out some of the stories from the moms and dads of vaccine injured or dead children. The pictures are heartbreaking.

      By their very nature and being ruled by the US Supreme Court that vaccines “are unavoidably unsafe” they are in direct conflict with the Nuremberg Code–Human Experimentation. Are you okay with that?

      Your understanding of efficacy of vaccines is in direct conflict with the “other side.”

        These children are being programmed to think they are geniuses because they can memorize what is jammed down their throats but in reality they cannot think. This is how a statist society is built. Just give a person with an average IQ a union contract, a classroom, 100 grand a year, a couple months off and the rest is history. You would think these students would realize that the tyranny their parents fled is being erected by their very own offspring right here and now. Just listen to the mindset of these students who are just a few years away from operating on us and who are almost ready to vote.

You have more value than “able to perform difficult programming” and you have more identity than a Troy high school student.

    Blaming the teacher or advisor in this case is both unprofessional and disappointing. Yes, this teacher may have a reputation for being strict, but she would not allow subpar articles to be published. While this page has also given some studies, the writer of the article also did his research and gave a fair point. Another point to make is that this article was a news article and thus had minimal personal opinion in it.

    If you haven’t noticed, the Oracle has posted a few other articles that also quote people from the other side of the argument and showcase that side as well. Mrs. Cheney is not pushing anything on to the students and honestly, if you people are nitpicking at a high school paper because it does not reflect your beliefs, then read your ancient news about polio and leave a hardworking, dedicated teacher alone instead of mudslinging her and the school.

    As a Troy student I am greatly offended by your article, @Fullertoninformer. Students at Troy are able to freely write articles and publish them just as you are able to to do so. Just because the contents of the article are not in line with your beliefs doesn’t mean that our school is pushing “liberal agendas” or that the Oracle advisor is a “Propogandist.” In fact, the article is based off of actual content. Whether you had wanted to see both sides of the argument or not is irrelevant, as individuals can decide on their own opinions on the issue at hand and choose whether to discount the information provided or not. Individuals are capable of researching about issues, including high school students. Furthermore, the criticisms of Troy’s faculty and staff are dissapointing, as I would have hoped that a group of adults in the comments section would have been more mature than to resort to childishly calling experienced and successful teachers “bullies.” Troy high school remains today as one of the top high schools in California as well as a top tier STEM school, with 99% of students moving on to colleges and universities. With that information how can you criticize Troy students to be “children who are clueless about anything except when they are forced to memorize?” Please, we clearly possess the ability to critically think and to be open minded, unlike this website and the commenters who believe that they must resort to narrow minded accusations and disrespectful comments to get their point across.

      It is not clear that you do not have the ability to critically think and be open minded. That is sad.
      One of the Troy teachers has even said that you are being taught is to regurgitate information.

      Troy high school needs to shed the ego and realize that its sole purpose is to educate our children. I understand the U.S. Business magazine did not even list Troy in the top 500. Maybe, on some level, they understand what is going on at Troy.

      The individual students should be first and foremost, always.

    Are you that lost that you are seriously attacking a high school paper, written by high school students, in an environment that they choose to be in and feel safe in? Do you feel so bigoted that any decision that isn’t in accordance with your own agenda is considered “radical liberal” and feel the need to brand teachers doing their jobs they are passionate about as “bullies?”

      I am a proud Troy student as well. I have endured harsh criticism from my peers for my family’s views on this and other personal issues. The environment at Troy is very hostile to opinions that are not widely accepted by faculty and teachers. The student body as a whole cannot come together because of the divide between academics. I do not agree with defending the Oracle. It is very one sided and Ms. Cheney has her wall of favorites which she manipulates like a small army. She is not objective and is very unkind to students she does not like. I find it unfortunate that so many of her followers defend her.

    I am glad you students are here. The Troy Oracle has also pushed a radical wireless agenda and ignored scientist’s and parent’s bonafide concerns. So has the Troy PTSA and the staff. Cheney wont print that either.

    Wireless emissions cause cancer and infertility. Has there ever been an honest debate on campus about what the district is about to force you all to be exposed to when the multiple WiFi access points go into EVERY classroom along with the chromebooks that emit more radiation than cell phones do?

    Vaccines can be used to sterilize people and they have been caught spiking them with sterilants and cancer viruses in the past. Has there ever been an honest debate on campus about the safety and efficacy of vaccines and yet the law takes effect July 2016 making an endless list of vaccines mandatory as a condition of school entry.

    There many exceptional students at Troy but wisdom is something you don’t get from books. You can be at the top of your class but blind as a bat when it comes to life. Ironically the majority of this site’s content is designed to protect you the students and children from the very people you are defending, the school district staff.

    The students at Troy need to understand that health decisions are being made for them and they do not have all the facts, especially with wireless and vaccines which are forced on you students by the administration.

    Wireless devices do not belong in the classrooms. Vaccination should be a choice. Hardwired computers are the only way to go. Forced school microwave exposure is a sterilization agenda. Don’t you want to have a family someday?

    Consider everything. Use your abilities to think critically. Government and media lie about almost everything and the student body is being groomed and prepped to serve the mercantile interests of these corporations whose inherent profit results from inflicting harm on masses of unsuspecting people.

    • #44 by One truly grateful student at Troy on December 4, 2015 - 6:06 pm

      Yes, of course using a wireless connection is the cause of all cancer. If you were not aware, a current beloved teacher at our school Troy is experiencing a relapse of her cancer. I’m sure she would appreciate and certainly agree with you “non-liberal” views. Also, as a AP Lang teacher it’s not like she actually cares about anyone or their future, and obviously she doesn’t spend her own time to ensure her students do the most quality work that they can. It’s not like she’s struggling with a terrible disease alongside rigorously preparing her students for college. Because obviously her time at this school has only one reward for her hard work: cancer. Yes. A wireless connection has instilled upon her a horrific malicious affliction. And yes, she has programmed all of us Troy students that we are geniuses, because also, like all geniuses, we all have perfect memory and are able to completely regurgitate every single facts, formula, and theory. So thank you, Mr. Joe Imbriano, for telling all Troy students that, in reality, none of us are actually intelligent and that we aren’t actually talented in anyway. That we aren’t nationally ranked as a school, and that we all are super conceited students that think that we are geniuses. Thank you for telling us that wireless connection are the ultimate cause of all cancers. Thank you for reminding us that our teachers don’t care about students, that they are critical and harsh as teachers only to torment us, not to help us grow and develop as a good student. On the behalf of the graduating class, we salute you for your most wonderful work, because obviously you are the force that will “make America great again”.

      On a separate note, it’s not like our teachers teach us how to write an effective satire or anything.

      • #45 by Anonymous on December 4, 2015 - 6:53 pm

        You believe that wireless radiation is “the cause of all cancer?”

        Where did you come to understand that? That is neither implied nor conveyed on either this or any other website addressing RF-radiation. If you would start looking at the science, however, you would find that more studies are finding wireless radiation to be a Class 1 carcinogen.
        They have already figured it out in Italy, where the Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that a man’s tumors were due to his cell phone use.
        Also, here in the states is a $1.9 Billion lawsuit against Magnavox for brain cancer.
        Oh, and then you have breast cancer occurring in women who stored their cell phones in their bras. The tumors are located right where the antennas were located when pressed against the skin.

        That is just the wireless radiation & cancer but there are numerous other health hazards you can investigate for yourself.

        This should give you pause.

        Apparently, one of Troy’s teachers is candid and honest enough to say that school is essentially regurgitating information. By now, each of you should have developed the basis from which to critical think but, with all things considered, I do not believe those skills have been developed.

        You went off on quite a tangent, there.

      • #46 by anonymous on December 5, 2015 - 12:28 am

        Anyone allowing wireless (including the toxic levels put out by wifi AP’s that emit 24/7) to be put into schools are murderers. Children and teens will have the most exposure of this type radiation than their parents or any generation before them. It is imperative you young folks quickly come to realize you cannot take what the gov’t touts as safe for face value – EVER. Your progeny is on the line, as well as your mental and lifelong health. And this is well before we even get into cancer cases. The current maladies of wireless that could affect you is suffering from ES (Electrosensitivity). Life will never be the same once this condition strikes. Believe me, your body will tell you you’ve had enough.

    Ms. Cheney can be really mean and unfair to students. To me personally she was actually really nice, but the way she treats some of her kids is just unnecessary. A classroom shouldn’t be an environment where you feel uncomfortable and targeted. While she is very good at picking apart pieces of literature, she often goes into a more abstract and personal point of view that students wouldn’t be able to analyse without that experience. Also, she misuses the word “irony”. Comprenez vous, y’all?

    It appears that she does not love or respect her profession enough to provide instruction and fairness to which she is ethically bound. I suppose she wields too much influence on where these students go to college for anyone to challenge her. The students don’t dare talk until Troy H.S. is well behind them and their college recommendations are no longer dependent on her favor.

    That does not excuse the administration for not knowing or ignoring, and acting on her unprofessional behavior.

    Is Cheney “untouchable”?

  35. #63 by Former Troy Student on December 4, 2015 - 2:58 pm

    I was a student at Troy in the 1990’s. I’m conflicted as to which is more corrupt, Troy High, or Fullerton City Hall?

    Many Troy students are afraid to tell their parents what really goes on there. That’s because any reasonable adult just might go ballistic, so kids tend to keep their mouth shut. Also, students obsessed with academic achievement and acceptance at a high profile university never speak up either. They fear Troy having a bad rap will derail their plans for college, so once again, nothing gets reported.

    Not every faculty member was corrupt, but I’ll tell you what was “status quo” in those days. For the current Troy students reading this, I’d LOVE to know if these things (or anything close to them) continue today.

    – Teachers having sex with students. One teacher was convicted of sodomy with a minor, which, surprise, was never covered by the Orange County Register or television news!

    – Teachers drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes near the baseball field, even sharing the latter with students. I know this because a teacher offered me a cigarette. I also saw a beer cooler, lid removed, in the back of one teacher’s car.

    – Teachers physically assaulting students. I personally witnessed it twice: In a fit of rage, a male teacher/coach punched a special ed student (who had Down Syndrome) in the chest inside the weight training room. Another time, a female English teacher got into a fight with a female student and pinned the girl against the chalkboard by her neck. After realizing what she had done, the teacher went next door and got a now-deceased football coach/substitute teacher. They went into the side storage room, closed the door, and conspired on a FALSE story that the student instigated the fight. My desk was closest to the storage room inside the classroom and I overheard the entire conversation. The female student (the victim) was suspended for five days.

    – Troy required expensive graphing calculators for math. TI-82 model or something like that. A couple dozen of us had our calculators stolen. Within a few weeks, they had an idea of who was responsible and forcefully opened a student’s locker. A friend who witnessed the locker search said graphing calculators fell out of it like candy from a piñata. Weeks, then months, passed and we heard nothing from the administration about getting our calculators back. They said identifying the owners was difficult because the serial numbers had been removed. One day I’m sitting in math class when a classmate yelled out that the teacher was using his stolen calculator. You guessed it, at least some of our stolen calculators ended up in the hands of faculty. No explanation, no apology, and nobody held accountable.

    – There was fraud and cheating to keep test scores inflated. Faculty either tolerated it or helped make it happen. I witnessed at least one teacher accepting bribes from a parent. I believe it’s the 400 building(?) with classrooms that face the service road. I used to wait in this area to be picked up after school, and one day, my ride was really late. Some kid’s father pulled up in a high-end Mercedes and went to one of the classrooms carrying his checkbook. I knew this didn’t look right, so I waited closer to the open classroom door and eavesdropped on the conversation. The man’s son or daughter was struggling and they discussed what improvements were needed. Nothing out of line so far. Then, the brown-nosing began. He tried to flatter the teacher by saying she was his kid’s favorite, and on and on. The conversation shifted to where the teacher (probably 23 or 24 at the time) went to college. She insinuated her student loans were huge. Without missing a beat, he offered to make a “donation” toward her loan repayment because she meant so much to his kid. He wrote a check and she thanked him profusely. He didn’t ask (nor did the teacher offer) higher grades in return, but come on. Anyone with half a brain knows exactly what the “donation” was intended to accomplish.

    A number of friends had suspicions of fraud by other teachers. I’m not clear on the specifics because I wasn’t in those classes. All I remember hearing is that certain students’ class grades were mathematically impossible based on their test and assignment scores throughout the semester. (i.e. you can’t finish with a B if all of your class work received a C, D, or F)

    We didn’t have cell phones in those days. I would have called the police myself on a few different occasions if we did. There was no campus police officer at the time, and when we tried to tell administrators of things we witnessed or suspected were wrong, a couple of them literally laughed in our faces. One threatened us with Saturday School for “making up lies”.

    I can’t even begin to describe the feelings of helplessness. It was truly miserable being a student there.

  38. #68 by Troy Student on December 4, 2015 - 5:23 pm

    Let me explain my view of Troy and respond to many of the generalizing attacks at Troy:
    Yes, the honors/advanced curriculum at Troy is insanely rigorous. You will sleep little and have to give up some other activities if you wish to keep up. But the stress is a two way street. Students know right away that the classes are rigorous and have the option to drop levels after an entire month during first semester. If you choose to stay, then you are choosing the stress. A major cause of the stress is also procrastination on the students’ part.

    This rigor is because of competition. If you want to get into the college of your dreams, you must excel. And everyone wants to get into these schools, so everyone essentially forces everyone to do better. This causes lots of work, but in the end it does produce a more accomplished student population. The issue arises whether students are actually interested in what they are learning. This is a personal choice by the student and their family. I think the excessive push to get into these top colleges, and thus work constantly, comes primarily from immigrant and non-Caucasian parents. My teachers on the other hand have told my classes explicity, “you will do fine no matter which college you go to. Schools like CSUF, USC, community colleges are not bad options.”

    Yes, a majority of the learning at first will be rote memorization. However, this is necessary because many analytical concepts cannot be learned without a foundation. The highest level classes (Physics C, Calc II, AP Stats, AP Chem, AP Lit) are actually mostly analytical because students are expected to remember what they memorized earlier so they can apply it.

    The issue with rote memorization and lack of analysis with Troy is ill founded and based on a singular perspective. Comparatively, Troy has much more analytical work than the average HS in the US. The classes with pure rote memorization are usually the lower level (non-advanced) classes.

    Most teachers at Troy are nice and understanding. All the students know that the classes are rigorous. Most of my teachers really try to help us out and provide help and guidance whenever we ask. I do not know about Ms. Cheney personally.

    I am in the most advanced classes at Troy. All the students joke about adderall use, but not once have I seen someone using or offering adderall.

  39. #69 by Troy Student on December 4, 2015 - 5:28 pm

    Also, the grade deflation at Troy relative to other HS is not really a problem. Yes, it is much harder to get As than in other HS. However, the whole point of a GPA is to show your academic performance to colleges. Colleges compare GPAs of students only from the same school. So a Troy student’s GPA would not be compared to someone from another HS who might have a higher GPA because their classes are easier. Colleges know that different schools have different levels of difficulty and amount of weighted classes.

    Colleges really just care about your relative ranking (decile, # rank, etc). If everyone’s grades are deflated, the relative ranking still remains the same.

    • #70 by Anonymous on December 4, 2015 - 5:56 pm

      Please read the other posters here regarding the grade deflation.
      Scholarship money is awarded based on the GPA, so if it is deflated as others have said the cost of college is much greater. This is the way it plays out, the way it works.
      Colleges apply different criteria and blanket statements about “really just caring about your relative ranking” cannot be made.

      A student who is not in Tech, not in IB, should not have to be measured by Honors class standards. This is wrong, plain and simple. It should never be “much harder” to get an A at Troy than at other high schools.

      Troy H.S. is for all the students and until that changes, they must all be treated fairly.

      • #71 by Geokaris on December 4, 2015 - 7:16 pm

        Remember George Geokaris, FJUHSD Supt?

        He acknowledged the grade deflation at Troy but told me they couldn’t have all the kids getting “A’s”, after all, how would that look?

        The grade deflation is to keep the Troy stats at the level they deem casts the school in the light they want it cast.

        In other words, they don’t care about the individual student. It’s all about Troy High School.

    Some of you hit some trigger words with pulling out the “rote memorization” card and I think I can trace an air of some opinion on “hot housing”. I think… I know what you are hinting at.

    I’d like to offer my two cents before what seems to be generalization of the student body. All I can say, in the end, is that for some Troy is the best solution that can be found for students that have always gotten things the first time around and are at a much higher risk of tuning out and dropping out that the general population because of it.

    The bar is extremely high, the workload outrages and some (all really, but I’m talking about the “some” that would not have had to elsewhere) are having to learn that it not only takes those God/Universe or given brains but also hard work to make it in life. This is an EXTREMELY important life lesson and very hard to teach a child that has always just gotten things and never had to work for it.

    Their brightest students probably aren’t even at the top of the class but it doesn’t even matter to those that have experience in knowing what these type of minds need. They are being exposed to failure and learning from it. They aren’t bored and they aren’t dropping out.

    These kids are working so hard. The teachers are extremely supportive and the environment is positive and welcoming. There seems to be a spot for everyone to find their place. It’s a really fantastic school, and believe me I’ve done my share of being completely frustrated in the system. I’ve done my share of problem solving, hurdle jumping and complaining over the years. I literally have nothing to complain about with this school and it’s such a relief finally.

    Troy is an exceptional school and I feel this negativity and mud slinging can do huge disservice to the students and to a school that has set the bar extremely high for the top thinking percentage of our nation’s citizens and future tax payers. We WANT to keep these kids in our classrooms! Who cares if they are gifted or just working really hard… it doesn’t really matter. The kids want to be there and want to learn. What more can you ask for?

    For those of you who seem to have an opinion that you fit in that category of the higher level thinker, that may have been under challenged throughout your educational years, stop and think about it before you try to drag this school, their students and teachers around in the mud.

    That is all. Now I am going to go enjoy my day. : )

    • #76 by Anonymous on December 5, 2015 - 12:23 pm

      The school serves more than just the kids that have gotten it the first time around. All of them are entitled to a fair education.

      There are problems that have gone on for quite a while and need to be addressed. That is what I know. If you want to term that as ‘mud slinging’, so be it. I look at it as an opportunity to begin the discussions and to right the wrongs.

      You seem to want to look the other way on matters that clearly need addresssing.

        Fair education? You mean like actually meeting the needs of the top? You mean no longer letting them sit around while the others lather, rinse and repeat six hours a day, every day, five days a week for an entire school year? I agree.
        It’s about time these kids ALSO are thought about and get the education they are entitled to. It’s about time they are actually challenged to be all they can be. I mean most of them have only had to wait, what…… since kindergarten to actually have any type of intellectual stigmatization???
        I agree. It’s about time our education system has a school that recognizes their talents and nurtures their minds for success as well.

    So does this Fullerton informer “news” reference any sources that aren’t written or re-referenced by Mr. Joe?

    Please read below and open the link to understand the faces, lives and stories behind vaccine injuries.

    Then, ask yourself if the Oracle coverage was honest reporting.

    Interviews with parents of children harmed by EACH VACCINE TYPE (and Multiple Shots as well) has taken years to compile. It is my present to you for the holidays. Use this EVIDENCE to it’s highest purpose: to educate other parents, to awaken legislators to the reality of what their laws have done to our children, or to educate pediatricians so they stop the denial and lies. Join this, our mission of mercy to SAVE HUMANITY by sharing these vaccine realities. Thank you, Families Afflicted with Vaccine Injuries

    Thank you for all of your efforts. We now have a public health crisis in Florida of pertussis being spread by the pertussis VACCINE! We, in NY, are trying to stop the Governor from forcing m. meningitis vaccine upon children, a vaccine that has killed over 50 nationwide, and caused meningitis in several people already, even people in NY. We have to keep trying to protect our young children from lethal vaccine injections! The corruption of our legislators is extreme! We need to stay together, stay strong, and not allow our nations children to be maimed and killed by vaccines! God Bless you ALL!!!

    As a chiropractor, I see many children with neurological and gut damage from vaccines. When I envision a child getting injected with poison for the profit of others, it is as if I am watching a man beat a small child. Sickening. From that perspective, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your sanity and for the protection of our children. May God Bless you for protecting His children.

    • #88 by Oracle & truth on January 14, 2016 - 8:35 am

      Do you think the Troy Oracle reporters are capable of writing honestly about vaccines when they are under the thumb of an advisor that does not want the truth out and holds sway over their college future via letters of recommendation and grades?

      It would be great if they would take back the truth and report the real side to the vaccines, starting with this health crisis in Florida. Those vaccinated for pertussis, spreading pertussis, now a health crisis.

    Infant Paralyzed and Brain-Damaged After 6-Month Vaccinations, Doctors Threatened Parents to Further Vaccinate Their Daughter

    What If I Harmed My Children?
    by Kelly CS Johnson |

    What If?: I Harmed My Children

    When my daughter Ariana changed before my eyes at four years of age in the week following a vaccination, I was forced into research, into looking at all I believed. What I found was truly eye opening.
    We are all biased. We have a bias based on our current beliefs or assumptions, many of which we have been told over and over again since we were born. The trick is to question our beliefs and assumptions, to see if they stand up to scrutiny. When we look at them are we happy that they are solid, scientific facts. I did not always know this and so I harmed my children.

    I am a mother who wants the best for her children, to protect and keep them safe, the same as other mothers, because we love them. But what if I made mistakes? I now know that I did, grievous ones and now we live with the consequences, one of my children has Asperger’s and one has Type 1 diabetes. You see, I based the health care of my children on beliefs and assumptions with which I had grown up. I believed and I assumed that vaccines were safe.

    I did try to ask questions about vaccines, but this was back in the 1990s and I did not have access to the Internet and I did not realize that I had a bias. I did not look at my belief that vaccines were safe, I could not find unbiased scientific proof to support this and I was not shown any by the doctors or the government who were also reinforcing this assumption.

    When my daughter Ariana changed before my eyes at four years of age in the week following a vaccination, I was forced into research, into looking at all I believed. What I found was truly eye opening. I found that all the scientific information that our doctors and governments have on drugs and vaccines, and on which they are basing their beliefs, comes either directly or indirectly from the manufacturers of those same drugs and vaccines.

    If I made up a cocktail of a dash of formaldehyde, a pinch of virus, a drop of monkey DNA, a sliver of DNA from an aborted human fetus, a few other ingredients for good measure, gave it a stir with a spoon—thereby introducing stray bits of bacteria—and then gave it to you in a bottle and told you it was perfectly safe because the bloke down the road in the laboratory, whom I had paid, certified it so, would you drink it? No, of course not. You would think I was mad and I would probably be had up for attempted manslaughter.

    Yet, this is what I did when I vaccinated my babies. I put into their beautifully perfect little bodies these same ingredients, and more, based on safety data that the manufacturer had funded, directly or indirectly, and given to those in authority whose job it is to make sure that vaccines and drugs are “safe.”

    When I started to research drugs and vaccines, I found that there were many who questioned the safety of both, including doctors and scientists. I also found out that while some diseases had been prolific killers in the early 1900s, they were no longer so today. Take measles, for example. In the early 1900s to 1918, in the United Kingdom, measles was responsible for 10-12,000 deaths a year but by 1960 it was responsible for 100 deaths a year in the UK; a 90% decrease before any vaccine for measles was introduced. Yet today one of the adverse effects listed for Merck’s MMR 11 vaccine is Diabetes Mellitus (Type 1 diabetes).

    If we search the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, and remember that it is estimated that only 6% of adverse effects are reported, we find that since 1980 there have been over 100,000 adverse effects reported including permanent disabilities and deaths for MMR vaccines. So, as parents, we need to decide which we are more concerned about, a disease whose mortality rate had dropped by 90% before the vaccine was introduced, or, the vaccine which does cause adverse effects including deaths and permanent disabilities.

    Questioning ones beliefs and assumptions, I found, was a very frightening thing, it rocked the foundations of my world but I also wished that I had done it sooner. I wished that someone had told me their story of why they questioned our current medical beliefs. I know why they did not, because it is heartbreaking to face it all again and difficult to write it with a positive, inspiring outlook. So I thought I would try, so that maybe I could help others avoid our heartbreak and give them some of the information that I had found out along the way, so that they had a starting point.

    Everyone has the right to make an informed choice when it comes to their children’s health care. To decide what they feel is right to put into their bodies from food, to drugs, to vaccines. They also need to know what it is like to live daily with health challenges which are now being listed as adverse effects of vaccines or have long been attributed to being caused by a vaccine by parents. When we have this information, we can make informed choice on whether to vaccinate. That is our right and we need to respect that right. No one person or group has the right to force another person or group to bow to their beliefs or biases.
