    Educational System is not Teaching Kids so Why are we Handcuffing the Teachers?

    in Social Networking

    Schools are no longer a path to cultivation and a life of the mind; they are on a path of a job. Along the way, as schools became a training ground for corps of workers, they also became a means of furthering national interests. The debate about schools had become part of the debate about national power. Which brings us to the twenty-first century.


    When George W. Bush announced No Child Left Behind (NCLB), his purported intention was to encourage a set of practices and institute a set of assessments that would ensure every child got the same good start at school. Implicit in that formulation was the now familiar premise that it was up to schools to close the income gap between the rich and the poor. In its most beneficent form, it could have made a powerful difference in the lives of many children. If NCLB had ensured that all kids would learn how to read and that no child would become disenchanted enough to drop out, it might have been wonderful. But that’s not how NCLB played out.


    Within just a few years, teachers were rushing to make sure that each child got a higher score on the standardized tests than he or she had gotten the year before. School superintendents also felt compelled to see to it that their schools got higher scores every year. What had been promoted as a means of ensuring that all children received the fruits of our educational system became a relentless push toward improved test scores. With each year, more and more focus was on the scores themselves and less on the education the scores were intended to measure. At the national level, politicians threatened that if we didn’t educate everyone, once again our country might fall behind. The conversation was less about giving everyone access to reading, thoughtful engagement in civic life, or the pleasures of ideas, and much more about seeing to it that everyone could earn a decent wage.

    in Health

    After being in the health & fitness industry for the past 9 years, I have been asked many questions about becoming a personal trainer. Many health conscious people aspire to be great influencers of change in their world, so it's no surprise that a career in personal training comes to mind first. But, it can be overwhelming just to figure out what education is needed, certifications are required, business licenses to apply for and how to just get going. I'm going to take the next 4-5 episodes to discuss a number of things to consider to be a successful and well-rounded personal trainer. Today I discuss: 


    -More about the practice of personal training


    -Set up and preparation for all sessions


    -Filling out informed consent forms, waivers, doctor's releases (when necessary) and agreements


    -Setting and agreeing on goals, revisiting them frequently and planning ahead for goals


    -Take measurements appropriate to goals


    -Plan and track all workouts and progress, share regularly


    -Set a schedule, stick to it


    -The do's and don'ts of personal training


    -Miscellaneous wrap up

    Subrogation Waivers

    in Legal

    Attorney Steve Vondran discusses insurance subrogation waivers (contractual waivers often found in commercial property leases and contractor agreements).  In most cases courts will uphold the language of contractual limits on liability.  Courts do not like to re-write contracts.  However, in some subrogation cases the carrier may be presented with facts that suggest gross negligence (failure to exercise even a minimal standard of care) and such limititations on liability (precluding subrogation) could possibly be held void per public policy.
