  • The New Heights Show on Education with Host Charlotte McGuire

    in Education

    Topic:  “?”
     "Charlotte will share truths, and dispel myths about Common Core.  So families can come together in knowledge, action, and voices for education."  Common Core is a set of national academic standards for designated subjects, currently, Mathematics and English Language Arts/literacy (ELA).  These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade throughout their K-12 education. The standards were created to ensure all students graduate from high school with knowledge and skills to be college and career ready. This episode will focus on one perspective and its background and premises for the development of Common Core national standards.
    Our Mission:
    The New Heights Educational Group Inc. supports literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services.  Such services include assisting families in their selection of schools, organization of educational activities, and acquisition of materials.  We promote a healthy learning environment and offer enrichment programs for families of preschool and school age children, including children with special needs.
     

  • Not So Mad Science #Harold Muhammad 3239272913

    in Education

    Hosted By: Harold Muhammad
    Harold, an eclectic and voracious reader, began his ventures into the world of the written word as a child of 2 years. Scraps of paper, candy wrappers, dictionary's right through the entire encyclopedia Britannica. Yet, Harold was driven to books of the sciences. Physics, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, he met them all with great wonder and fascination. He delved into each discipline as if his very life depended upon understanding its depth.
    It was not until the words of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad,placed in his mind as a child, began to mingle with sciences, that the essence and understanding of the sciences began to have true purpose.The Hon. Elijah Muhammad said, "all there is to know is written in a book,.......READ".
    Harold began his collegiate pursuit at Hampton Institute; he then forayed to Fairleigh Dickenson University. At FDU the practice of the Social Sciences, public activism, and public speaking became a trusted part of mental fabric.
    Harold is the husband to Celestine Muhammad, and the father of 10 extraordinary children, and 10 grandchildren. Harold has the benefit of having the most exceptional and wondrous teachers to whom he owes all that he has learned, will learn and knows to this very day, The Most  Hon. Elijah Muhammad, the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan, his Father Alfred, and his Grandfather  the Late Captain, Harold D. Hook, his Mom (Queen Momma Harriet), and his eldest Brother Al.
    Harold Muhammad, Soldier, Scientist, Scholar, Academic, Educator, Brother........

  • Its Our Business To Tell Your Business: Child Support News

    in Education

    It's my business to  update our listeners concerning news for education purposes.  Child support news is all about Decent Disadvanted Non Custodial Parent Obligors ("DDNCPO') that are being treated like "deadbeat parents." There are no programs or support for these individuals for just in case the economy fails, the loss of jobs, or can't find a job in time to combat losing drivers license, or going to jail as a crime, etc., just because they cannot pay their child support in a timely manner. The child support agencies have monitors on who is and who is not paying child support payments and they know who are the deadbeats vs. decent.  The caseworkers is given all reigns to decide how obligors should be penalized, if at all depending on the circumstances.
    FFI, Inc. is an organization that deals with this issue...DDNCPO.  They are not deadbeats these people are not avoiding to pay there obligations, they are simply having a problem with uncertainties concerning, employers, the economy, circumstances they don't have control over.
    FFI is not here to fight, but to bring public awareness.
    We need your help to support DDNCPO from being victimized and defrauded by our Child Support agencies and family courts.
    It's my business to tell the business, and hopefully someone will help to address this vulnerable issue. Children and families are being killed, because the obligors can't afford to pay...they have no money.
    Please contact Alpha C. Hales for more information on how you can become a volunteer in the fight for support of Decent Disadvantaged Non Custodial Parent Obligors at:
    familyfirstint.org and/or familyfirstinternational@gmail.com
    Join us here to discuss the matters on Child Support News, next Thursday @ 4:30pm PST/7:30pm EST.  call in at this call in number and have some input, we need your support. 347-884-8684.

  • The Free American

    in Education

    Everyday more and more basic freedoms and good American jobs are being removed from America. The very best cure is to completely decapitate the WZs from their source of FIAT Money-power by “nationalizing” the Federal Reserve System, seizing all its assets, arresting all of its Directors, trying them for RICO Financial Fraud, Sedition and Treason.
