We hear about how competition could improve education, and how bloated government school systems stifle innovation, and corrupt teachers unions enshrine mediocre performance.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the only choice was private charter schools for most of New Orleans. 90% of kids are in these schools today, but plans are for the government to reclaim dominion over the chidren. Many amazing educators came to NOLA for the opportunity to innovate, and tonight we talk to one of them. His success is amazing and proof that it is not about money, but about finding the right people for the right kids. This man has lead a fascinating life, a path that took him from military intelligence to archaeology, to orphanages in India, and eventually to schools inside youth correctional intitutions.
He has had tremendous success in the worst schools with 20% of his students homeless, and many enrolling with arrest records. His approach and proven results showcase the enormous strength of heathenryand the meritocratic, libertarian ideal. Hear about real education reform, in real talk language.

"Activists created the NAACP more than a century ago to fight racialized violence." "Then, we called it "lynching." Today, we call it "police brutality," but the effect is still the same — our lives are in danger. Endangered by some of the very people who are called to protect and serve us. We are all tense, angry, devastated, and grieving." "We grieve for Alton Sterling. We grieve for Philando Castile.

"As an organization, we are doing everything we can to ensure justice is served, but we can't do it alone. Stand in solidarity with your fellow activists, hand in hand with your community. Contact your elected officials to demand life-saving reforms to a broken system." "We can — and must — put an end to this together." Cornell William Brooks President and CEO

What is Bullying?
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
