Continuing the theme of education and its connection to business we wonder at the absence of evidence that education is a predictor of performance. If school works, applications of knowledge should be commonplace and expected, yet they are rare and exceptional. What's up with this?
An exciting month, this has been. We have discussed the business sense of the education system in Zambia. We close the topic by discussing government, private and international scholarships. Joining the discussion are Mr Peter Kasaji, Thomas Gussie and Gwendolyn Pate. Thomas Gussie, originally from New Jersey, is the Vice President of GLOBAL STUDENT EXCHANGE (GSE) Inc. GSE is an international study abroad company located just outside Jacksonville Florida. We work with our global connections for long term collaborations to identify and place qualified secondary students ages 13 - 18 yrs old in one of our 55-60 private boarding and day high schools across the U.S. The program is a springboard for students whose ultimate goal is to study at college/university in the U.S. Gwendolyn Pate has been in higher education for 29 years. In those years, with some overlapping, she has served 19 years as coordinator of college ambassador program and has been in advising and counselling for 13 years. She is a former college recruiter and has worked on pre-college programs for Urban Youth. Currently she is an instructor for freshman classes.
President Obama visited Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) last week to discuss his administration's education agenda. He called for high-quality pre-school for every 4-year-old in the country, access to high-speed Internet for all students, lower college costs, and schools that are redesigned to teach high-tech skills.
My guests, Heather Hiles, Founder and CEO of PathBrite, and Dr. Debra Mahone, Director of State and Federal Programs for the Prince George's County Public School District, will talk to us about what technology in education really looks like for educators and why technology is critical to ensuring equity for all students.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which works with schools and other organizations to create education equity plans and promote equity in education.
Why is it important to talk about poverty in education? How do we do that in a way that is respectful and meaningful?
Many times, discussions about education reform intentionally conflate race and class. There are a few reasons for this, including that the federal courts have slowly closed the courthouse doors to claims of race discrimination in education. Courts also have almost completely prohibited voluntary efforts to create racial diversity in schools. As a result, equity proponents have been forced into a difficult position - using socioeconomic status as a proxy for race. This often leaves educators, community members, and others thinking about poverty only in terms of race. Our special guest, Dr. Adriane Williams, will equip listeners with the necessary tools to navigate between the overlapping worlds of race and poverty in education.

The Education Trust recently released a new report, "The State of Education for Native Students." This report found that while achievement gaps for students of color are slowly closing, academic achievement for American Indian and Alaska Native students has stagnated, contributing to widening gaps between Native students and their white peers.
On this episode of Know-It-All, the author of the report, Natasha Ushomirsky, and Daria Hall, both from the Education Trust, will join us to talk about the report's findings and about those schools that have gotten it right for Native students.

We are told over and over that schooling is an indispensible aspect of society, yet the most fundamental and essential skills required to be productive and happy as an individual are typically glossed over.
One example of this is how shools argue and fight over teaching kids sex education, but there is no relationship education or courses teaching students how to build great relationships and search for love while also protecting themselves from hurt.
This is so obvious it boggles the mind, yet the so called "educated" experts have not thought of this... or have they and they simply have an agenda. Can you think of any reasons why schools would teach sex education without first teaching relationships?
