    in Education

    Kwame Alexander is an American writer of poetry and children's fiction. His book, The Crossover, won the 2015 Newbery Medal recognizing the year's "most distinguished contribution to American literature for children." Bryan Ripley Crandall is the director of the Connecticut Writing Project at Fairfield and has been a supporter of Kwame Alexander’s work since he met him in 2012 and invited him, and his book, Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band, to be part of a Supporting Effective Educator Development grant through the National Writing Project, collaborating with Hill Central, a K-8 urban school in New Haven, Connecticut. Join us for a conversation about Kwame’s work and the ways teachers connected his literary contributions to write across the disciplines through professional development with CWP-Fairfield.
     

  • 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.

  • Closing the "Opportunity Gap" Through Mentoring Programs

    in Training

    How is it that some people wind up on top of the social heap and others wind up on the bottom? This question, which sociologists refer to as social mobility, has been studied for decades. Recently, the prominent sociologist Robert Putnam has published a new book that examines social mobility, income equality and the American Dream.
    What he uncovers is disturbing. Putnam says that social mobility is poised to plunge in the years ahead, shattering the American Dream.
    Why is this so and what can be done about it?
    On Thursday, May 21, at 9:00 a.m. (PST) I will be discussing this topic with my guest Mary Fernandez, the President of MentorNet, a division of Great Minds in STEM™. MentorNet implements a national, guided, one-to-one mentoring program that matches STEM students with STEM professionals in high-quality, virtual mentorships. By the way, STEM is the acronym for science, technology, engineering and math.
    This podcast is produced in cooperation with the University of Massachusetts at Boston's Chronicle of Evidence-Based Mentoring and Vince Reardon.

  • I was just thinking...the 90th birthday of Malcolm X

    in Education

    90 years ago on May 19,1925 in Omaha,Nebraska, Malcolm Little was born to an activist family and followers of Marcus Garvey.
    Through a series of life changing events Malcolm became the leader of thousands and influenced millions since his death.
    Tonight we will let him speak. The message is still timely and on point. We need to listen to our ancestor and gain a needed education from his experience and insight. 
    Here is Malcolm X and we honor him tonight.
    Malcolm X asked: Are we ready for a Revolution? Really?
