    Philly Public Schools...Its NOT Education its Political Brinksmanship w/Children

    in Current Events

    Your host here at SevDeadSerious is particularily miffed at the public schools in the rapidly degenerating city of Philadelphia, where the education of our most valuable resource has been hijacked by the political process by an unscrupulous state controlled School Reform Commission (SRC) that as a state controlled entity, the Douche Bag of the week candidate Tom Corbett that without a total turnaround is destined to be the first 1-term governor of the state since the early 70's and what better way to fire up your base of pathetic GOP'ers from Pennsyltucky (yes, Pennsyltucky) reason to rejoice as the predominately minority serving public schools can continue to erode.  Its not the paying for a portion of their benefits but to invoke the measures without public hearings or notifying the Teacher's Union of their intent is typical GOP underhanded policy.  All so Corbett could increase his polling number...now that's a Douche Bag!

    More Than Just A Good Idea: Education Research to Guide Product Development

    in Education


    More than Just a Good Idea: Education Research Guide to Product Development

    Ideas abound for new teaching methodologies, and curriculum, and each claims to be innovative and effective. Governments throughout the world fund a wealth of research into educational strategies and instructional design every year, yet we find that these communities often don’t communicate well with each other. It is not unusual for popular educational solutions to lack research into their effectiveness and how best they can be applied. Equally unusual, many educational research programs, in which curriculum is developed, never see the commercial light of day, or broad distribution.

    We will examine what educational research brings to improving products today and in the future and how publishers can take advantage of research findings to improve their offerings. 

    Host Michael Jay and our leading education thinkers will contemplate the following:

    How closely tied is today’s research programs to educational practice?
    Where are there challenges for the research community in working with commercial vendors?
    How are requirements at funding agencies changing to bring these communities closer together?
    How are our universities and research institutions working to accommodate the commercialization of products from their research?
    How can publishers reach out to the research community to improve their offerings and gain greater credibility with the educational community?

    "New Heights Show on Education" American vs. Foreign Education System

    in Education

    This week, I will be having Isaac Moffett on the show to discuss the contract between American schools and Foreign schools. He is currently the host of a podcast "The Great Education Struggle" and an expert on the topic. We will be covering the difference in curriculum, the American standards of common core, and why American students are outperformed by foreigners when the U.S. government spends around $12,000 per student each year.

    Can We Be Quiet As Children Face Threats In Today's Education System

    in News

    Hear interview with two children whose parents awakened to the fact that the schools they trusted has now become a place of intimidation.  All states education system is under fire to follow the edicts of the Common Core Standards Initiative.  Teachers and principals are now having to choose between children and jobs.  Many are failing and when that happens who will protect the child?  This great nation that sacrificed so much and fought to keep this nation and others free are now finding the enemy is within and of all place in a domain that used to be held in high esteem.  Esteem that has now turned to incredulity as surely teachers and principals that used to promote creativity and learning are becoming tools for rigidity placing invisible straight jackets on the minds and bodies of future citizens.  Can America's future be free? Not if we ignore the plain truths our children are hoping we will see and hear.  Listen to their testimony and pray you can overcome waiting for the fix to happen another day  and through another person.  May God help us if we don't see the problem is US today.  This week we just saw where Texas rejected David Coleman's Advance Placement US History..the same David Coleman who authored Common Core.  The Bible says by their fruits you shall know them--Common Core is rotten/  Please listen to these children as they unravel the rotten truths.
