On this weeks episode of The Menu: Continuing Education. Is it necessary or just another way for the system to capitalize off of us?
Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with upgrading yourself mentally, socially and academically but at the current cost that some of these universities charge what are they really providing in return? Student loans seem more like an endless debt! For how many years do you pledge your servitude and what is the ultimate end result? This Thursday night at 8pm on The Menu Knowledge for Knowledge, let's educate!
President Obama visited Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) last week to discuss his administration's education agenda. He called for high-quality pre-school for every 4-year-old in the country, access to high-speed Internet for all students, lower college costs, and schools that are redesigned to teach high-tech skills.
My guests, Heather Hiles, Founder and CEO of PathBrite, and Dr. Debra Mahone, Director of State and Federal Programs for the Prince George's County Public School District, will talk to us about what technology in education really looks like for educators and why technology is critical to ensuring equity for all students.

Why is it important to talk about poverty in education? How do we do that in a way that is respectful and meaningful?
Many times, discussions about education reform intentionally conflate race and class. There are a few reasons for this, including that the federal courts have slowly closed the courthouse doors to claims of race discrimination in education. Courts also have almost completely prohibited voluntary efforts to create racial diversity in schools. As a result, equity proponents have been forced into a difficult position - using socioeconomic status as a proxy for race. This often leaves educators, community members, and others thinking about poverty only in terms of race. Our special guest, Dr. Adriane Williams, will equip listeners with the necessary tools to navigate between the overlapping worlds of race and poverty in education.

The Education Trust recently released a new report, "The State of Education for Native Students." This report found that while achievement gaps for students of color are slowly closing, academic achievement for American Indian and Alaska Native students has stagnated, contributing to widening gaps between Native students and their white peers.
On this episode of Know-It-All, the author of the report, Natasha Ushomirsky, and Daria Hall, both from the Education Trust, will join us to talk about the report's findings and about those schools that have gotten it right for Native students.

The Clinical Pinnacle with SaltyMedic - Episode 6
How do you continue to educate your experienced EMS audience? Humor is refreshing, reviewing phsycomotor competencies is prudent,and re-evaluating cognitive knowledge is an ongoing requirement in EMS, but there is a difference in continuing education and refreshing information.
Join me on the show to talk about strategies to target your experienced audience.
We are told over and over that schooling is an indispensible aspect of society, yet the most fundamental and essential skills required to be productive and happy as an individual are typically glossed over.
One example of this is how shools argue and fight over teaching kids sex education, but there is no relationship education or courses teaching students how to build great relationships and search for love while also protecting themselves from hurt.
This is so obvious it boggles the mind, yet the so called "educated" experts have not thought of this... or have they and they simply have an agenda. Can you think of any reasons why schools would teach sex education without first teaching relationships?
