    Detroit Public Schools: Our Kids Deserve Better

    in Radio

    Some 88 out of 97 schools in Detroit closed recently after teachers called in sick in protest of rodent and mold problems. There are complaints of an odious smell of mold and mildew that hits you like a ton of bricks when you step through the front doors at Spain Elementary-Middle School in Detroit. Once a school any city would be proud to have in its district. Today, it’s the poster child for neglect and indifference to a quality teaching and learning environment for some 500 students.

    The gym is closed because half of the floor is buckled and the other half suffered so much rainwater damage from the dripping ceiling that it became covered with toxic black mold. Instead of professionally addressing the problem, a black tarp simply was placed over the entire area. That area of the school has since been condemned.

    The once beautiful pool sits empty because no one has come to fix it. The playground is off-limits because a geyser of searing hot steam explodes out of the ground.

    Exposed wires hang from missing ceiling tiles. Watermarks from leaks abound. Kids either sit in freezing classrooms with their coats on or strip off layers because of stifling heat.

    Complaints to Darnell Earley, the emergency manager over the Detroit Public Schools have seemingly fallen on deaf ears.

    Religious Schools, Religious Rules

    in Education

    SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR:  http://www.naturebox.com/thinkingatheist


    There are few experiences like attending a religious elementary school, high school or university.  Some religious institutions of "learning" are mild, moderate and relatively benign.  Others operate like puritan prisons.  And the strict (and often bizarre) rules imposed by these schools can be interesting, entertaining, and often alarming.


    This show features the experiences and stories of those raised in religious school environments.  Have something you want to share?  Email podcast@thethinkingatheist.com

    America, the Fourth Reich: The Religious Beliefs of the Candidates; Debates

    in Culture

    The Church the Source of Culture


    Secular academics insist that the Church is a subset of culture, and that it synthesizes the evolving political and social consciousness of people over a period of time.  Religious people say that the Church is the source of culture; the values of the culture have their origin in the spiritual life of the Church,and that the Truths of the Church are not derivative, but original, absolute, and even comes from an UnCreated Sacred Source that is Supernatural to the mundane reality of regular life.


    The Attack On the Church


    The attack on the Church has been political, and it has been social. Political in that it challenge and redefined the consult of the office of political authority, political sovereignty, and the role of the peoples to the crown, or the political authority. Even though this has happen, human behaviour towards authority has not changed,


    Social changed in moral  who defines what morals a society follows, and how to enforce or allow for difference.

    WHAT SUCCESSFUL URBAN SCHOOLS DO! EXPERTS SHARE BEST PRACTICES

    in Education

    Show overview:


    A discussion with Ms. Linda Harris, Mr. Patrick Jones and Mr. James Taylor. Show title "What Successful Urban Schools Do! Experts Share Best Practices.


    NCEBC wants to welcome the full village to question, understand, and ask questions, about governance, educational policy, finances,  resources, and  the basic democratic principles of equity, fairness, and justice. It is important (if not, vital) that we have this conversation to continue to dispel the myth that black children are incapable of achieving high test scores,  therefore public schools are incapable of providing quality education.


    "We believe in accountability. We believe that data drives decision-making. We believe in research-based practices. These principles have been used for generations by high performing schools, principals and Superintendents; especially those working and succeeding in urban communities were poverty and race are the dominant elements. This conversation is about the politics, power, economics, and restructuring of a public school system into a charter school system."
