SORT BY Relevancy
It's that time of year when everyone is on the hunt for the school supply list, the teacher wish list; and, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack that Target had online but can't locate in the store (oh wait, that's MY challenge at the moment).
Seriously, this time of year for many is filled with excitement but for children who learn differently and their parents--there is often very little to be excited about as the fights about homework resume.
According to a 2010 report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, nearly 2.4 million students are diagnoised with LD and receive special education services in schools.
For parents trying to navigate this educational maze to obtain help for their child, it is often described as the equivilent of attempting to climb Mt. Everest in flipflops.
What do you need to know to advocate effectively for your child? What is an IEP? Who is eligible for a 504 plan? Is there really a difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP? What are the first steps in the IEP process? Does it really speed up the process to get your child tested outside of the school system? What are some types of things you as a parent or guardian can ask to have included in the IEP? We're going to cover all of this and more!
If you have a child that you believe may need extra help in school to thrive then this show is for you!
We will have Licensed Psychologist Dr. Arcella Trimble as our guest to help navigate the waters on Educational Advocacy 101 for Parents and Guardians as well as blogger Karen Wesley Weaver.
Karen's blog, Confessions of An Asperger's Mom (http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com/) has been featured on Mamapedia and is listed on the Top Mommy Blogs http://www.topmommyblogs.com (yes, please go vote for Confessions of An Asperger's Mom).
Join The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Lak, Hip Hop at it's best!
Larry “LAK” Henderson is the founder of Smart Music Entertainment, and the creator of a new sound of hip-hop music that is used as a tool to educate and awaken the consciousness of youth and people in our communities. His album, Lesson One: Hip-Hop & Education, has hit Amazon bestseller lists (#1 in Hot New Releases and #8 in Educational Music), and has received airplay on major radio stations around the world, due to his combination of deep, historical insights and authentic hip-hop sound.
The album features songs about African and African-American history, politics, geography, money management, and commentary on the social war raging in our urban communities. CBS calls Lesson One “creative, innovative, and informative.” Dominion of New York Magazine says, “Most people who use hip-hop to educate do so badly. Lak does it so well.”
Lak is a social critic, history and religion intellectual, and an innovative education advocate. Through his company’s Smart Music Insights initiative, he offers free performances and educational workshops for urban youth; guidance for parents and youth educators on ways to foster learning; and original songwriting to support awareness campaigns for positive community organizations. Lak holds degrees in Africana Studies, Communications, and Labor Studies from Rutgers University, and studied studio engineering at the Institute of Audio Research.
Lak has been featured as a guest on a host of radio and television programs, including London UK’s BANG 103.6 FM, CBS, KMOJ 89.9 FM Minneapolis, WVON 1690 AM Chicago, WPRB 103.3 FM Princeton University, WRSU 88.7 FM Rutgers University, WMNF 88.5 Tampa, BET, LA Talk Radio, and many more.
Is the White House Educational Policy impacting your child's ability to get a quality education?
Before, it was Bush with No Child Left Behind; now, it is Obama with Race to the Top.
How is the White House Education policy driving Quality Education and Student Progress / Success? Are we really closing the 'GAP'? Do we understand Common Core, School Ratings, the Charter School Movement and Teacher Evaluation?
What do we really think about the National Education Policy?

The Forum -- Every Second Wednesday of the Month.
This weeks forum: Taking The Direct Path
There are many forms of religion and spirituality around today. There are many sutras and sacred books teaching many techniqes. There are many teachers offering on courses explained in many different ways, ways we can accept, but is is possible that this whole mall of choices can actually be blocking our way to joy, happiness, and awakening.
On this show we will talk about the one path, the only path that we all must come to before we become awake and live our full potentials. It will also discuss how denying this path and chosing another is playing into the core problem that keesp us all alienated and living in the world of suffering.
I will begin by describing one of the early experiences that led on the true spiritual path.
We'll be Defining Consciousness and talking about what it means to be Conscious in a society that is OPPRESSING our community. Forming Bonds between different "Conscious" communities and seeking solutions on how those different communities can work together to reach solutions to the problems the system that oppresses us all creates.
This week on The Conversation Cafe™ A.Raquel & Mahoghani Dawn will talk with celebrity & entertainment blogger Ray Cornelius, who keeps us "in the know" about the latest in entertainment news. In the second half of the show A.Raquel & Mahoghani Dawn will discuss “The Real Angle of the Educational System and How It Impacts Black Youth” with Nationally-known author and public speaker, Tunette Powell.
Tunette Powell has received a host of prestigious public speaking awards, including being named the top persuasive speaker in the country in 2012, as she has traveled throughout the country motivating and encouraging young men and women at schools, colleges and universities, and nonprofit organizations. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, Powell has dedicated her life to being the change she wishes to see. Powell published her long-awaited debut memoir, The Other Woman – a bold and emotional memoir about her father’s drug addiction and the impact it had on her life. In 2013, Powell shared her story on Oprah’s Lifeclass for Daddyless Daughters. The odds were stacked high against Powell, but she healed through telling her story, letting it go and creating a new story to tell. And she intends to spend the rest of her life helping other women and youth find hope and healing.

At the forum today we will discuss the topic "Stealing the Revolution." We will explore how, throughout history, a well meaning majority or minority have fought and struggled to create a beautiful, fair and just society for everyone, only to have those who are anti-social and with borderline peronalities, repeatedly move in, drive them out, and make the system a little more sick each time.
Welcome to The Forum where you can explore new topics and look at the world in a newer, more exciting way.
