Dr. J. E. Carthron, host of Better Public Schools for America will be discussing "Working to Change Public Schools", with his special guest and they will speak on the following points:
How to increase the teachers expectation for your child.
How to help your child have their best year ever in school.
We will also be taking call in questions and comments from across the county.
PROGRAM TIME: 8AM-10AM EST
With over 45,000 schools failing across the country why is it such a suprise to find that our children are not receiving the education they need to insure they and this country have a chance for a prosperous future? We hear about "Teaching toward testing", "No one will get failing grades", "Students in the 8th grade read at a 3rd grade level." and other scary comments about today's educational process. I can say I have heard all of the comments. I have also heard and witnessed new concepts in teaching/learning that blows my mind. Today's program begins with a recorded presentation (September 29th) from a group making application for a new and unique school hopefully coming to Florence. The Board/Committe hoping to begin the school, Virtus Academy (Virtus is latin for "in pursuit of excellence) will be presenting their application to the South Carolina Charer School DIstrict on October 1, 2015. Their pursuit of excellence will hopefully be obtained with an approval for the new FREE charter school in November.If approval is obtained Virtus Academy will open in for the 2016-17 school year.
Join me "In the Pickle Barrel" as we look the changing face of education in America, I solicit your comments and questions in the live online Chat Room. You are also invited call (toll free) 855-236-2486 to share the same live on air.
CITIZENS MAKING SCHOOLS BETTER
WIN LEARNING presents FRIENDS OF TEXAS SCHOOLS, aterific citizen's organization with Executive Director Stacey Osborne and founder Scott Milder
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.??
Barry Sherman - MSW, LCSW, is a school social worker with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Until 2011 he served for nearly 20 years as the Assistant Director of The Institute for Life-leadership & Coaching.
