Music and art have been cut back or cut out of our our public schools curriculums because of budget cuts and a greater emphasis on standardized testing in the academic areas of math, reading and science. Is this a mistake? Can arts education enhance learning and help students excel in academic subjects? Music educator and doctoral researcher Ron Watson discusses his research on the effects on integrating music into academic subjects.
Featuring Tara Davidson, HS and College English Instructor Defined by the US Department of Education, the Academic Achievement Gap is "the difference in academic performance between different ethnic groups."
The purpose of this series is to bring forth educators and professionals to expound of the idea of an academic achievement gap and its ramifications.

An Understanding of The Ile Isin Abalayenifa Cultural Training Institute
Concern for the health of the individual, family and community is the heart of the Yoruba/Ifa way of life. It is through Ifa that we learn how to achieve and maintain harmonious relationships with all aspects of family and community. It is through Ifa that we learn how to achieve and maintain harmonious relationships with all aspects of our environment. This creates a condition of balance and blessing (Ire) that is ultimately passed from one generation to another. Many of the problems that plague our families are rooted in our disconnection from the original way of life of our Ancestors. IIACTI has developed in depth training programs that immerse the members in Yoruba language, protocol and rituals that provide the guidelines for healthy living and proper religious worship of the Ori, Ancestors and Orisas.

The Common Core Standards Initiative has inspired A Unified Learning Supports to ensure Common Core is learned well so that kids will be College and Career Ready. In this Unified Learning Supports is a Comprehensive Counseling Guidance proposed by Alabama Sup Tommy Bice (maybe tweaked in Dec worksession and voted in Jan by SBOE).
Here are some food for thought gleanings from nationally renowned Education Expert--Linda Murphy:
"All students will receive a data-driven counseling program that promotes academic achievement, career readiness, and personal/social development", which includes their "attitudes, character, values and beliefs."
It is "aligned with ASCA National Model and its revisions and includes four interrelated components: foundation, delivery system, management system, and accountability."

It "helps students achieve their full potential through four program delivery components: School Guidance Curriculum, Individual Student Planning, Responsive Services, and Indirect Services." read more
