The Montessori experience at an early age prepares children at a later age to be able to isolate, classify, discriminate, analyze, and use critical thinking skills. It is the basis for creative learning and intellectual curiosity.” ~ Dr. Maria Montessori
When children come to Montessori Academy of Chapel Hill Preschool they enter a Children’s House. In the Children’s House, children as young as three and as old as six, learn side-by-side. Younger children observe higher lessons and get excited about the next level. Older students self-confidently guide younger peers. By grouping in this way, Teachers are able to guide the continuous progress of the child in the most productive and nurturing manner. Read more at the website....
Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org

white female teachers are being recruited to teach young Black youth all around this country. The impact has been absolutely devastating. When these white females are not intentionally misdiagnosing Black children with learning disabilities, they are undermining the self-esteem of our youth and pushing them into learning-disabled situations.
Additionally, the amerikkkan miseducation system is stripping the straightness out of our children by promoting "homosexuality" to our children as a preferable system of sexual behavior. They are stripping the Blackness out of our children by teaching our children that slavery never happened and that our enslavement was not bad. Additionally, they are confusing the very idea of what Blackness fundamentally is. Lastly, they are promoting the sexually degenerate hip-hop culture to our children in order to strip any sense of pride and self-respect from them.
In short, the whites are destroying the sanity and the promise of Black children throughout this country by warehousing them in miseducation institutions that resemble prisons more than learning institutions. Let's talk about the need for independent Black educational institutions.
Employers are not the only ones demanding social media passwords – schools are doing so too. There has been lots of media attention about this – resulting in a surge of legislative activity on the issue. In Illinois, a new law went into effect this year allowing school officials to have access to passwords to students’ social media accounts in certain situations. The concern, of course, is how this impacts a student’s right to privacy under the Constitution and state laws. This podcast with Kelly Anderson will explore the new law and how it could affect your children.
Listen Mr. Brett A. Scudder talk about the realities of addressing and preventing suicide in many schools today as he continues his work in engaging communities in the effort of change.

Why Is Financial Education Not Taught In Schools?
Martha Stokes CMT was recently asked what would happen if everyone had financial education about the stock market. Would the stock market crash more? Would the stock market be more volatile? Why is it that there is no formal financial education in high schools or colleges, for people who are not majoring in economics or Financial Services degrees? Why are people never taught how the stock market really works?

Public education in poorer urban and rural areas is in crisis. Too many of the students are dropping out well before high school graduation. Too many are receiving high school “certificates of attendance” that do not certify academic confidence in basic subjects. Too many are being left unprepared for the world of work. Too many are being left unprepared to go on to higher education and advanced technical training. We are condemning the American society to the perpetuation of inequalities across lines of race, ethnicity, and class that we've been struggling to overcome in recent generations. The disparities in education concord with racial inequalities and socioeconomic class in America. The present system leaves a substantial portion of America behind. School problems are reflected in student apathy, student absenteeism, student disrespect for teachers, and student tardiness. Behaviors and attitudes of students are problematic particularly in the “senior high school level”. Restoring safety and discipline and backing up teachers who are determined to maintain discipline in their classrooms are imperatives to recruit and retain high quality teachers.
Everyone I know see “No Child Left Behind” as a detriment to the public education environment. There is lip-service to reforming “No Child Left Behind” policies, but the focus in education continues to be in the testing process. The conversation about education is really about who will be part of the intellectual capital of this nation. Who will have access to the resources that that intellectual capital commands? Who will have access to the marketplace? And how will they access that marketplace? All of this is predicated on who has computers and uses technology now. Who is becoming technologically literate?
