Harry C. Boyte, delves into the idea that Americans feel powerless to address the mounting problems that face this country. In an opening essay, Boyte advises educators to claim and use their sometimes unappreciated power in the face of these problems. He challenges them to lead a movement in the rethinking of education, the meaning of citizenship, the state of the working world in today’s society, and the challenge of addressing public issues. Boyte believes that education is “the anchoring institution of citizenship.” Education, according to Boyte, shapes public identities and career paths of students and influences the methods and structures of many professions. Boyte coordinated an association, called the American Commonwealth Partnership, of several hundred colleges and universities to strengthen higher education as a public good. This book builds on the ideas practiced by the American Commonwealth Partnership.
In the book, Democracy’s Education presidents and public officials portray their roles as public philosophers and architects of wide ranging policy changes. There are accounts from students, faculty, and staff in which they discuss the changing curriculum, student life, and alumni relationships. All of these factors allow current students to create opportunities to develop public action and concern for a commonwealth which they are helping to generate. Students also narrate their findings and experiences of becoming controlling factors of change, and get into their plans for careers packed with public principles.
TIME TO INVESTIGATE CAMPUS LIFE AND FIND THE SOURCE OF VIOLENCE. IS IT DRUGS? IS IT MAOISM? DOES GRAMMAR SCHOOL RITILIN KICK IN VIOLENT TEN YEARS LATER. IS IT PENT UP FRUSTRATION FROM NOT BEING ALLOWED A COMMUNIST REVOLUTION? ARE THESE CHILDREN OF DIVORCED FAMILIES SUFFERING FROM DIVORCE PTSD? WILL THE STUDENTS TURN ON THEIR PROFESSORS AND POL POTHEAD THEM?
When the analytics skills gap drew global attention two years ago, eyes turned to what colleges and universities are doing to prepare the next generation of analytics and data science professionals. While many institutions implemented graduate and undergraduate programs to help replenish the talent pool a few years down the road, other schools focused on helping experienced business and technology professionals make the transition into data science roles with mid-career education programs.
In reality, the talent pool requires both types of workers; those who bring talent to the table immediately, and those who will require nurturing at entry level positions.
Some forward-thinking organizations are establishing close relationships with higher education, offering financial aid to students, endowing chairs, hiring interns, and helping to shape the curriculums for analytics programs.
Sue Talley, dean of technology for Capella University's School of Business and Technology, discusses best practices in establishing mutually beneficial partnerships between college analytics programs and the business world.
In this session you will learn:
*How colleges and universities are ramping up their efforts to prepare students -- young and not so young, for careers in analytics
How organizations are partnering with colleges to ensure that the enterprises and the businesses down the street have a data science talent pool to draw upon
What goes into a data science curriculum in terms of technical training and business-skill development
What your organization can do to work with local educational institutions to develop a workforce rich in analytics skills and STEM talents
The All Analytics Academy program Build a Successful Analytics Team is presenting educational sessions throughout November.

While it may appear that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) do not have issues of domestic violence on their campuses they in fact do. There are many barriers that women of color may experience in seeking assistance. In 2011 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights published The Dear College letter. This set the guidelines for addressing the sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice Office of Violence Against has grants available to help assist colleges and universities to meet the mandates of the Dear Colleague letter. Tonight we will discuss how HBCU’s are addressing the issue of domestic violence and the resources for the survivor.
Running a government, whether it is a city, state, or country, is like running a household. You look at what your operating costs are, look at your total household income, and decide how to spend the money you make to pay bills and make sure everyone is fed, clothed, kept warm and safe, and educated. That's what good parents do to take care of the children whose lives are in their hands. The problem with some elected officials is that they are not being good "parents" of the "children" they are supposed to take care of, namely, the voters who are entrusting them with decisions that affect people's lives. Schools in Illinois are being threatened with closure because Governor Bruce Rauner, elected by a small percentage of votes, has held up the release of funds for education, refusing to sign legislation presented by the Illinois General Assembly. Students have united to fight for their right to receive education and are mounting a massive voter registration drive, as well as mass demonstrations and lobbying elected officials to push the Governor to act. If not, what next? Students have already shown how economic boycotts and refusal of sports teams to play can have an impact. Today's guests, student leaders Darren Martin from Chicago State University and Nicolas Martinez from Northeastern Illinois University discuss the power of a new, politically involved, educated generation.
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* Dr. Ben Carson also announces that he is running for President.
* Religious colleges may be at risk if the Supreme Court approves homosexual “marriage”.
* GoFundMe’s new policy apparently persecute Christian fundraisers.
