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.

One of the biggest debates going on in education today is the debate between charter schools and traditional public schools. In this episode we discuss charter schools and how they are different from public schools. We also discuss a 2009 study by Stanford University into the effectiveness of charter schools. We also give some commentary the debate and on public school reform in general.
How might charter schools become more diverse?
How might district & charter public schools work together?
What are some strengths and shortcomings of the charter public school movement?
Are there important differences between being forced to attend a school because of your culture, and being given options including the option to attend a school with people who mostly represent your culture?
What are key features of Higher Ground Academy that has led it to being name one of Minnesota's outstanding public schools by US News and World Report.
What can be done to encourage more high school students to take dual (high school/college) credit courses?
This episode will discuss the pros and cons of Georgia's first prison charter school and the aftermath of the Atlanta Public School cheating scandal. We will discuss the role of public schools and how charter schools may balance the scales of giving people a fair chance in education. We will discuss why investing in Americans in public school is better than waiting until after they are incarcerated. We will discuss why reform that places an emphasis on investing in inmates versus prevention and intervention is a failed cause.

Then tune in as Mr. Yancey discusses "What's going on in charter schools?". Regardless of whether it's public, private or charter schools, our students deserve a nurturing, stable learning environment.
