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.

LanceScurv turns it upwith content that the Mainstream Media would never showcase and the powers that be will never approve to be shared.
In vowing to focusing on the life changing imformation in a platform that is littered with grown people who waste their precious time arguing, speaking foolishness and indulging in buffoonery, I know for sure that this type of content will run the frauds away as well as those who can't stand to see their bubble of illusion broken.
But in growing you must understand that you will walk alone and in doing so move into your God given destiny and positioning.
That being said, listen in to this information shared in the powerful words of Dr. Umar. A. Muhammad at The Black and Nobel Bookstore located in Philadelphia at 1409 W. Erie Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19140

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.
The host at SevsDeadSerious has been watching the abject failure of the Philadelphia School District; one that I taught in and one that my wife currently administrates in, continues to fail the young people of the city by chronic under-funding over the last 4 years due to the total neglect and closeted racism of the Republican led houses of legislature, as well as the state house with state idiot-in-chief Tom Corbett, who judging by his appointments give great credence to the addage of "white privledge" (ever notice how many privledged white guys deny white privledge...just sayin), leading to the current apocalyptic state of the Philadelphia schools. While yes the state has shown itself to be racist, the fed should also look at the overall state of education in America under the tutelage of the tall, former basketball player who graduated from Harvard and has done next-to-nothing as the Secretary of Education, save for some REALLY cute photo-ops with cute little kids...as for doing anything substantive, not so much. The kid in Philly wakes up every morning know that the state and federal government see them as having little value and reward them with even less opportunity. Like climate change, you can't just close your eyes and it will go away.

Shane Krauser, the host of Liberty Storm, ignites the flames of liberty on "Freedom Friday." Don't miss this show as you prepare to head into the weekend. Shane covered the following:
1. Minimum wage legislation is anti-poor.
2. The Fourth Amendment is under attack. But what if it means going after underage drinking? What about stopping drunk drivers?
3. A National Guard recruiter was instructed to stop handing out promotional t-shirts at a New York high school after teachers complained at the shirts featured a soldier holding a weapon. What?
4. Prayer in schools? One teacher is suspended for joining his football team in prayer.
