Betty Shabazz International Charter Schools CEO David Ireland joins us today to discuss the battle with CPS to close one of its schools despite improved academic performances.

The WA State Supreme Court ruled recently that charter schools created under the new education law I-1240 were unconstitutional. They do not fit under the definition of public schools ("common schools") as defined in the state constitution -- they do not have publicly elected governing bodies and aren't subject to the control of voters.
Wayne Au was a plaintiff in the lawsuit that challenged I-1240 and is here to talk with us today. Wayne Au is an Associate Professor of education at the University of Washington, Bothell and an editor for the social justice education magazine, Rethinking Schools.

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.

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.
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.
Some 88 out of 97 schools in Detroit closed recently after teachers called in sick in protest of rodent and mold problems. There are complaints of an odious smell of mold and mildew that hits you like a ton of bricks when you step through the front doors at Spain Elementary-Middle School in Detroit. Once a school any city would be proud to have in its district. Today, it’s the poster child for neglect and indifference to a quality teaching and learning environment for some 500 students.
The gym is closed because half of the floor is buckled and the other half suffered so much rainwater damage from the dripping ceiling that it became covered with toxic black mold. Instead of professionally addressing the problem, a black tarp simply was placed over the entire area. That area of the school has since been condemned.
The once beautiful pool sits empty because no one has come to fix it. The playground is off-limits because a geyser of searing hot steam explodes out of the ground.
Exposed wires hang from missing ceiling tiles. Watermarks from leaks abound. Kids either sit in freezing classrooms with their coats on or strip off layers because of stifling heat.
Complaints to Darnell Earley, the emergency manager over the Detroit Public Schools have seemingly fallen on deaf ears.
