Teresa Weatherall Neal has worked for GRPS for 35 years. She started out as a student worker as a teenager. She has worked in numerous capacities throughout the district including as an Administrative Assistant, Coordinator of Compliance, and Co-Director of Community and Student Service. Just prior to her appointment to Superintendent, she worked as the Assistant Superintendent of Community and Student Affairs for seven years.
She has a love for both the students of Grand Rapids and the city itself. She, herself, is a product of Grand Rapids. She comes from a large family with deep roots in the City. She is proud of her education in GRPS and will brag to anyone that she attended South Middle School and graduated from Creston High School.
In her State of the Schools Address, Superintendent Neal made a statement that seemed to resonate with many people in the District and in the community. She stated, “These are our students, our schools, and this is our City.” She truly believes this and is working, and has charged her staff to work, with that statement in mind
As we celebrate the 60 year anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education it appears that public schools are still segregated. 60 years ago laws were passed to de-segregate public schools based on race and stll today many public schools remain segregated, but not because of race. The new underlying factor of public school segregation is economics. Many segregated public schools lack high quality resources (i.e books, computers, highly educated teachers, etc.) because of economics. Can a law fix this or is there something else we can do? Tune in to discuss how we can help address this problem.

President of NAACP Houston chapter after city council was elected back to school board.

The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program is the largest school based father engagement program in the nation with over 4000 schools participating.
Live from Brunswick County, North Carolina, we will be talking to Pat Litzinger, Congregations For Children District Coordinator, Harbor District, NC Conference of The United Methodist Church. Many churches are reaching out to the public schools in their community outreach. Watch D.O.G.S. provides an opportunity to organizations within the school community including churches to serve local children without "re-inventing the wheel". Of course local school policy and practice dictates how this is managed, but the Watch D.O.G.S. program is a great foundation to build upon. We will also be joined by New Hanover County, NC Commissioner Jonathan Barfield and Top Dog Coordinator, Scott Diggs.
Each week, WatchDOGS Radio host Keith Schumacher and co-host Chris Danenhauer discuss how this program is impacting families and schools across our nation and in four foreign countries.
Please join our audience and call in with your questions and comments.
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?

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?
