Ward 5 Residents Meet To Effect Change In Dc Public Schools

In order to win the money, the states must show a plan for the money. There is an application process and it is not as easy as it sounds. States hoping to win the money go through a rigorous process. Part of that process is to ensure that the money goes to what it is intended for, helping the children of that state obtain a stellar education.

If you are like most progressive Americans, the answer is no. Maybe you’ve sent in five bucks here or there, or shared a clever Facebook post with all two thousand of your friends who have also not done a thing. The truth is, you haven’t done anything to try to move the Democratic party back to its more liberal roots. You haven’t even brought out your fiddle while your country burned. Until you have acted, I submit that you do not have the right to complain that the Democratic Party does not represent your values. If you haven’t given them a reason to listen to you, this mess is your fault.

Our problem in education is not state, federal, school or district problem. The problem is an adult and grownup problem. We must take our neighborhoods back and start being an active member of the community. Our young people are out of control. Where are the parents of these young people? They should be held accountable for the actions of their children.

Today, students are bused out of their neighborhoods for various reasons. Their is no sense of community and there is no sense of ownership. Back in the day the neighborhood looked out for everyone and especially the children. If a neighbor saw a neighbor’s child acting inappropriately, they would notify their parents.

Back in the day, even teachers children attended the same schools. Teachers were icons in the community. We saw them at the grocery stores and downtown. We need to focus more on community as we move to education reform.

I hear anti-smoking advocates are getting ready to re-introduce another total smoking ban ordinance here in Indianapolis. I also hear that because of Smoke Free Indy’s shenanigans last session a number of lawmakers are looking at drafting pre-emption language which would prohibit locals from banning smoking in tobacco shops, private clubs and cigar bars. So if something does happen this year or next year, there’s a good chance it will be short-lived.

The solutions offered are all palliative. It will not solve the problem now and the problems will still be here decades from now. These ‘education experts’ will ask administrators and teachers to go one to one with students who have problems and may not graduate. Are we really going to expect teachers and administrators to do this every year? Let’s say in a staff of 60, how many do you expect will stay after hours to do one to one with these students? And, there are hundreds of them in each school! How about the ones who are coming up to high school? And, how about all the attack against teachers’ salaries and benefits? What are they going to do, force teachers with threats?

Gun Reform And Education

Barren of cognitive stimulation and encouragement, these environments create a tragic cycle of intellectual stagnation. I’ve met countless students who by age 15 had never seen a live earthworm. Some reach my class believing dinosaurs are fictional characters along with Godzilla or Superman. Others have heard neither Bach nor Black Sabbath.

The president is going to mention education reform in his state of the union address tonight. He intends to put .4 billion into a dysfunctional system. All the money in the world will not fix this broken way we attempt to teach our children.

It’s especially timely, too. March 2 is the National Education Association’s Read Across America Day, a celebration of reading, aptly on the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Here in Boston and around the country, schools and libraries will bring together children and books.

According to the office of Family and Public Engagement, the purpose of the meeting was to open a dialogue about addressing concerns such as grade configuration options, and to decide what will need to be done in order to implement a plan for great schools in Ward 5 that will be successful.

Current trends in education “reform” rely heavily on teacher-bashing, and on claims about the supposed failure of public schools that would put Chicken Little to shame. Wealthy individuals and corporate interests spend millions of dollars on media to denigrate public schools and undermine the professional reputation of public school teachers.

The Democrats have done the “correct” thing in every election since they lost the south to the Christians: They’ve ignored the non-believers and progressives completely because there was no political benefit in paying attention to them.

We progressives have been polite and quiet for decades. We’ve practiced a policy of “live and let live” while our rights were taken away. We’ve continued on with our lives because it wasn’t our house going back to the bank. We’ve kept our accounts with Bank of America even though we knew they defrauded us out of mind boggling amounts of money. We’ve declined to talk about politics or religion while FOX News has been pouring propaganda across every waiting room in America.

District staff, with the twinkling collaboration of the majority local board of education, preached this sermon to parents, businesses, community members, and KIDS, for two solid years; if we don’t get some more money things are going to get real bad- so bad we are going to direct our reindeer to steer this R1 sleigh off a cliff- we will eliminate teachers that impact learning, we will eliminate programs that have educational value, and those fees that parents are swindled into paying- they will continue to increase.

Unions, Charter Schools, And The Arne Duncan National School System

The uncomfortable truth is that progressives in america cannot afford not to be activists. We no longer have the option of hoping that someone else will step to the plate. They won’t. It is up to us. If we lose this country to the right Wing Fascists, it won’t be because there are more of them than us. It will be because they are more active, more dedicated, and more financially supportive of their party than we are of ours. They have been the squeaky wheel for thirty years, and in that time, we have somehow failed to recognize the basic fact of politics: The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Meanwhile, students in countries around the globe are being trained and educated to understand that success in the future will be based on who has the best skills. Why are we not teaching our children to prepare for global competition?

Start early and make it a habit before you introduce TV and video games. Limit screen-time, including TV, video games, and computer. Trade some of their structured activities for free time. Appeal to kids’ natural interests (e.g. sports: try hiking or canoeing, science: try gardening or rock collecting). Model outdoor time behavior yourself and focus on fun!

A. Give writing tests, interviews, and background checks. Admission to the college of education should be tougher than any department, after all teachers are going to be dealing with CHILDREN – THE FUTURE – OUR FUTURE.

QueenVictoria(1819 – 1901) was queen ofUnited KingdomandIrelandfrom 1837 until her death. In 1840 she married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg andGotha(1819 – 1861).Prince Albertwas QueenVictoria’s first cousin. They had 9 children and 42 grandchildren.Prince Albertadvocated education reform the abolition of slavery.Prince Albertdied at age 42. QueenVictoriaandPrince Alberthad a beautiful relationship and long term love affair. QueenVictoriamourned the death of her dearPrince Albertfor the rest of her life.

Many of the students who do graduate don’t have adequate reading, math or daily living skills to be successful. What then, can we expect of students who leave BEFORE graduation, for whatever reason? And it’s not just big cities with notorious crime rates and a large pool of underprivileged children who are at risk. No, the problem is so widespread that no area is immune to these decling standards and graduation rates.

It is an old argument to suggest that poorly performing schools or ineffective teachers are the result of having to deal with children living in poverty.

J.C.:The best part is forecasting where I grew up and being in an environment where the weather is always changing. New Englanders LOVE talking about the weather, good or bad. The most difficult part is forecasting in an environment where the weather is always changing! We have marine and mountain influences that can make forecasting quite a challenge.

Education Reform And The Economy

Consider outdoor skills to be part of your child’s healthy and complete upbringing. Learn to paddle a canoe, take a hike, go stargazing, use binoculars to see a bird. Listen to the sounds of the night, use a compass and a GPS.

What I propose is that any group of people who can articulate a sound system for educating our children should be able to access public funds to do so, so that all children can have access to many choices. The charter system addresses this partially. The biggest issues are: a) a preset curriculum in the form of state standards, which mean a charter school still cannot entirely allow children to develop knowledge and skills through their passions, and b) state testing mandates which mean that even when a school does manage to allow students choice in what they are learning about, they ALL must still be on the exact same page on the exact same day in all the tested subjects.

Lani Guinier, a professor of law at Harvard, was absolutely amazing. Her words were so moving that I had to forward the clip to a buddy of mine who is interested in education reform.

I took that same attitude into the classroom when i began to teach. When I gave homework, it was so the student could practice a new skill. If a student made an honest attempt to complete an assignment, and was unsuccessful, he/she could come to me. The parents and the child did not have to spend quality time at home frustrated as they all tried to figure it out.

The So what? The ‘so-what’ is that the lowest SAT for admittance to the University of Illinois is 1610. 1277 ain’t cutting it. The universal reaction from elected black officials, apologetic black educators, and guilt-ridden black parents, or more realistically, single mothers is: Racism. They declare the SAT is biased. You know what? It probably is. It is biased toward students who can read and write well and who take an algebra class before they have a child out of wedlock. But then colleges, grad schools, and corporations are biased as well. Life is biased, job competition is intense, get over it.

“Legislators and education officials have been paying more attention to the dropout problem since learning last year that more than 30 percent of high school students aren’t graduating. A report released in October by the Milton & Rose D. Friedman Foundation said students who drop out of school in a single year cost the state’s taxpayers 9 million annually in lost sales tax revenue and higher Medicaid and prison costs.

We need to wake up as a nation and realize that our future is in jeopardy. Poor education results are a matter of national security, not just family pride.

In order to win the money, the states must show a plan for the money. There is an application process and it is not as easy as it sounds. States hoping to win the money go through a rigorous process. Part of that process is to ensure that the money goes to what it is intended for, helping the children of that state obtain a stellar education.
