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.
It isn't uncommon for the underdog or child with special needs to be bullied at school. How can parents help their school-aged CHD children if they are being bullied? What strategies work for overcoming bullying? What kind of presentations can parents do to help schools understand the prevalence of congenital heart defects? What can parents do to make sure their children's school are safe for their congenital heart defect survivors? This episode will examine the answers to these questions and more.
The NYC DOE launched the citywide Respect For All program in 2007 in an effort to address bullying and harassment. According to the DOE:
"The NYC DOE is committed to maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying and from discrimination based on actual or perceived race, color, citizen-ship/immigration status, religion, creed, national origin, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, or weight."
Is it effective? More importantly, does it serve all students, or just those identified as a protected class? Weigh in!

NYS Law on Bullying: "The Dignity Act for All Students"
Last Sunday's program Two Boss Chicks Nickie Vega and Lee Giordano introduced the issue of School Bullying and whether or not the New York City Department of Education's policies are doing enough to prevent bullying and stop it when it occurs. This week the discussion continues.
We'd like to hear from you our listeners.
Were you bullied as a child?
Did you feel those in charge of protecting you were effective?
How has the bullying affected you if at all long term?
Do you know a child that is being bullied in the NYC Public School system and do you feel the issues were addressed adequately?
Is the NYC DOE policy Respect for All in conjunction with Chancellor's Regulation A-832 doing enough?
If you were in charge of implementing policy what are some of the solutions you'd bring to the table?
Join your hosts TWO BOSS CHICKS Nickie Vega and Lee Giordano as they discuss this important issue that affects not only our children, but our future as a society.
Callers welcome...let your voice be heard.

Michael Morones, an 11 yr old child, committed suicide as a result of bullying over a month ago. On the show, I will be speaking to the mother who will tell Michael's story, a story that no mother should ever tell. Jon Lucas, an attorney will come on afterwards to tell about the foundation and the global support of Michael. This will be followed up by a conversation with Lydia, a Mayor and professor at a North Carolina law school about the issue of bullying, the legal standpoints, and how we can protect our children; after all, this could have been anyone's child - maybe a child that you know.

This matter of bullying is a serious one in our schools, neighborhoods, jobs and even in our homes, yes our homes. Bullying is a common practice of the adversary, Satan him self and this is why a Stand against this type of evil practice has to Stop within our communities. Who is the answer to this shadow of darkness? Jesus Christ and the Body of Christ through prayer and awareness. So Stand! with us in prayer and awareness within our families, schools and communities. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but aganist principalities, aganist powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Eph 6:12 Co-Host Nikeitria Mason will share in this series of "Who's Bullying Who" in bringing this to the forefront.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and we will recognize it today with Dr. William Copeland, Associate Professor at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Copeland recently wrote an article (published online 2/20, 2013 In JAMA Psychiatry) on the long-term effects of bullying behavior. The findings as to what extent bullying can affect a person’s adult functioning are alarming and should be a “call to arms,” to create effective bullying prevention programs in all schools and communities.
Dr. William Copeland is a clinical psychologist and epidemiologist, who trained at the University of Vermont and completed his clinical internship at Duke University Medical Center. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Center for Developmental Epidemiology in the department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Copeland’s research program is supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD).
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.
