SORT BY Relevancy
OUR FRIEND PETER UPHAM, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR THE ASSOCIATION OF BOARDING SCHOOLS IS OUR GUEST
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.
Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.
THE BOARDING SCHOOL SURVIVAL (AND STRAIGHT 'A') GUIDE

National Conflict Resolution Day was October 16th.
On Today's Episode, you will meet…Ken Johnson. We will discuss current issues of student conflict, performance, and behavior in the school system.
Unbroken Circles for Schools, deals with issues of student conflict, performance, behavior, etc. in the school system. In America we arrest over 2 million juveniles a year. Florida is a top arrester of children with 58 thousand being taken into custody every year . . . most tried on felony and misdemeanor charges for rather trivial offenses that no adult would ever be charged with. The #1 reason an incarcerated person leaves a juvenile detention facility is to be transported to an adult prison to finish out the rest of their sentence.
Ken Johnson is a culturist and conflict dynamics specialist with over 16 years experience in the criminal justice system and previous teaching experience. Starting college at the age of 16, he holds a BA in Social Sciences from the University of West Florida and an MBA from Saint Leo University.
He serves as the Principal Chief of the Florida Tribe of Cherokee Indians, has served on numerous government boards, and was commissioned by the Governor of Kentucky as a Colonel. His op-ed pieces on culture and conflict have been featured worldwide and he was even asked to be a contributor to a UN paper on conflict issues in Africa.

Education reporter Cherise M. Newsome joins Pilot Radio to discuss a federal investigation that found Norfolk Public Schools negligent in handling complaints in middle and high schools about sexual harassment and treatment of students with disabilities. Newsome was first to break the story about the investigation, which concluded earlier this year. School leaders heard about the results in May, but not the general public. The Pilot published her story Sept. 27 after Newsome obtained a copy of the report from the U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights. On Sunday, The Pilot is scheduled to publish Newsome’s exclusive interview with the family that spurred the investigation.
Co Host Pete Murtha and Host Dave Bourne will discuss government schools, including common core and the current indoctrination. As well schools becoming more like jails with militarized police forces. We will also talk about solutions such as home schooling and why government schools and government control over education should not exist.
The show promotes and discusses the ideas of true freedom and liberty for all people without the partisan politics. Exposing the government for what it is, a mafia that rules only by the threat of force without concent. The show supports peaceful consentual voluntary relationships. Where the people are not robbed, oppressed, controlled and abused under the threat of force and in many cases actual force is used to force compliance.
I don't want someone else to represent me and make decisions about how I should live my life, when I know what's best for me and can represent myself. I am not a republican, I am not a democrat. I'm not a liberal, I'm not a conservative. I will not allow you to define me, or force me to join one of your gangs. I am an individual and I believe in freedom and liberty for all people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation as all human beings have a right to freedom and liberty. I will stand up to government oppression and do what I can to educate the public on the illusion and or lack of true freedom in America.
