The state of the education system, whether it's public or charter, is in serious need of help. For this reason we are replaying this show again to raise awareness of a few of the issues going on in charter schools. Kicking off the show is "Style Avenue" with Arielle. She will get you up to date on what's going on in the fashion world whether it's on the runway, at an event or on the streets. Then tune in as Mr. Yancey discusses "What's going on in charter schools?". Regardless of whether it's public, private or charter schools, our students deserve a nurturing, stable learning environment. Unfortunately, that is not the case in some schools that are suppose to be an alternative to public schools. What are your thoughts about this?
Schools don't teach skills, thats why employers need to train us,
ethnic study courses are now in schools. Why cant we all just be American?
Baggy Clothes= "Black Folks" Since when is a dress code racist?
Anti-Violence program is being investigated in Chicago. Why do we need this group? I thought The Law was out anti-violence program.
Recorded on Dashiell Hammett’s birthday, the Write Pack explore the schools, tropes, and clichés of the mystery genre, Why does there always have to be a murder? What are the sub-genres or schools or subgenres of the mystery genre? Do the crimes always have to be solved by a little old lady with no background in police work from a town where the murder victims outstrip the population of the town? What are some of the rules? What separates the subgenres? What are courtroom genres? What are police procedural stories? What are hardboiled mysteries? Why do detective characters have to be broken? What are crime novels? What separates the mystery from the adventure novel or are they separate?
Does there always need to be a sidekick? Do we always need justice? Do we always need the group of suspects gathered together in the drawing room or the court room for the criminal to be discovered? Is the evidence always quickly analyzed by the forensic lab?

Psychological healing from the shootings at schools in urban, suburban or rural areas is a tremendous challenge for concerned citizens of America and the world! Healing, both physical and psychological healing, is a process of restoring a situation to a balanced or functioning state. Unfortunately, the emotional scars in the healing process are usually seen or felt long after the traumatic situation or damage is over. Repairing or restoring our mental state after experiencing random shootings in public places (i.e. our schools, workplaces, malls,) is far more challenging than fixing the physical wounds. The Student2Teacher show has always focused on "down to earth" topics that will help Adult Students and Veterans succeed in school/college and work, even with mental and physical disabilities. The psychological impact of random shootings and stabbings in our schools/colleges was not expected to hinder success but it has, according to many students , employees and teachers! The innocent lives lost to shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, Columbine, Virginia Tech, to the recent Oregon school, and so many other "assumed safe" institutions, is a memorable tragedy, whether you were in the line of fire or watching on the news. . Please join Dr. Applewhite, staff at White Apple Institute, and Guests as they discuss ways to start the healing process from the violence in schools. Learn more about how you can support our students and Veterans with disabilities in reaching their education and workforce goals visithttp://whiteappleinstitute.org Click on Radio to listen to episodes of the Student2Teacher ™ show any day of the week.
