Natalie talks to Willie Ney, Executive Director and leader of First Wave, a hip-hop performance troupe that is transforming engagement in higher education.

Oh Yes! When Do You Start to go shopping for the ring?
Stephanie Smith made a sandwich for her boyfriend and he absolutely loved it. In fact, he loved it so much that he told her that she was 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring.
Stephanie took that as a challenge and is now 124 sandwiches away from getting engaged to her boyfriend, Eric. Each sandwich is different and not only is she having fun with the challenge and her new blog, she's also learning more about her husband's taste.
However, of course there is backlash to what seems to be a harmful challenge that's gone viral on Twitter. Feminist think that Smith has set women back 50 years by "doing what her man wants to get a ring."
Is that true? Voice your opinion in the chat room or on the phone as we dive into it!
We'll discuss that and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!

Allison Brown Consulting (ABC) and the Interactivity Foundation (IF) have partnered to create a new method of engaging school and district community members. This ABC-IF discussion and engagement model brings together parents, administrators, teachers, staff, and other community members with a trained IF facilitator for a series of in-depth conversations about issues related to equity in their schools and possible solutions to those issues that will bring the most benefit to students. After the series of discussions is complete, ABC and IF generate a report based on the school community's recommendations and based in federal civil rights law that requires equity in education.
ABC and IF piloted this discussion and engagement model at Washington Yu Ying Public Charter School in D.C. The principal at Yu Ying, Maquita Alexander, joins Dr. Natalie Hopkinson and Allison R. Brown to talk about the school's experiences with the new method and her advice for other schools who also wish to put equity first.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and owner of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which works with schools and other organizations to develop educational equity plans and promote student equity.
