THE GLOBAL REACH OF BOARDING SCHOOLS
Our returning guest is Pete Upham, Executive Director of The Association of Boarding Schools. I love this subject as my son went to boarding school...and he's a world traveler today.
Presented by SMARTBRIEF
Therapeutic Boarding Schools are expensive, so how do parents afford them? Scott Leshin, Founder and President of SJ Personal Healthcare Advocates, joined Lon February 27, 2015 to explain how his business was founded to help parents handle what might at first seem overwhelming. Working on a contingency basis, Scott explained there are a lot of potential resources for parents such as insurance and school district financing through the Individual Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The best way for parents to access these resources are to work with a professional who knows the system and how to help parents work through the health insurance and education bureaucracies to ensure claims are paid in a timely and accurate manner.

CITIZENS MAKING SCHOOLS BETTER
WIN LEARNING presents FRIENDS OF TEXAS SCHOOLS, aterific citizen's organization with Executive Director Stacey Osborne and founder Scott Milder
Host Russ Letica will discuss the painful and horrible legacy of the Residential Boarding Schools.
The Reservation Boarding School System was a war in disguise. It was a war between the United States government and the children of the First People of this land. Its intention was that of any war, elimination of the enemy. The reason this war is difficult to recognize is because it was covered by the attractive patina of a concept called "Manifest Destiny." Manifest Destiny was a philosophy by which the white european invader imagined themselves as having a divine right to take possession of all land and its fruits.
In any encounter with mainstream historical accounts, it is obvious that Native People were very little more than a "problem" to be solved by the colonizers. To white society, they were heathens and behaved like savages. They had no written language, their children were unschooled, and for the most part they didn't know how to stay in one place, many moved their villages according to the seasons. If these people, these Natives, were ever going to amount to anything in this United States of America, they had to be taught the proper and acceptable way to live. All aspects of Native culture or way of life were unacceptable to the white european mind.
Counselor Mandy Eppley speaks with school social worker Barry Sherman about his story and the impact his mother’s sudden death when he was 18 years old had on the course of his life. Barry also gives a first-hand account of the inequity that is in many of the schools throughout our country. He is experiencing this at the school he currently works in, located in Charlotte, NC, as it has moved backward and is now segregated. The biggest factor that separates the children in his school from other schools is their socio economic status with the majority living in poverty. Due to this, the majority of children are struggling with multiple risk factors that they bring to school with them each day. Thus, instead of being able to teach and create an optimal learning environment, they need to spend time addressing these risk factors. He is using his grief and outrage about this situation to fuel the actions he is taking to address and change this on a systemic level. One of the messages he wants to get out is that the best learning environment can be created when diversity, especially in economic levels, is present in our schools.??
