I WAS AT A CHURCH MEETING MONDAY NIGHT AND WE DISCUSSED A REQUEST FROM AN ORGANIZATION FOR MONEY FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES IN AREA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF: WHERE DOES ALL THE TAX MONEY GO TO SUPPORT THEM? I MEAN, REALLY, MY PROPERTY TAXES GO UP FOR SCHOOLS EVERY YEAR AND MORE AND MORE KIDS ARE BEING PULLED OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS EVERY YEAR, SO WHAT IS GOING ON?
NOW LET MY MAKE THIS CLEAR. I AM A PRODUCT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND I KNOW THAT A FREE SOCIETY NEEDS THEM TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL KIDS GET AN EDUCATION, BUT WHY ARE THEY FAILING YET COSTING MORE AND MORE? AND I KNOW THAT IT'S NOT THE TEACHERS. OH, SURE, THERE ARE A FEW BAD APPLIES IN ANY PROFESSION, BUT BY AND LARGE THEY WORK HARD, SPEND MONEY OUT OF THEIR OWN POCKETS TO HELP NEEDY STUDENTS, AND PICK UP MORE AND MORE EXTRA DUTIES WHILE THE ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF GROWS AND GROWS EACH YEAR.
WE'LL DISCUSS THIS AT 9 TUESDAY NIGHT. I'LL GIVE YOU MY TWO CENTS WORTH AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL GET US ALL THINKING ABOUT WHAT IS SO DREADFULLY WRONG TODAY. THIS WILL PROBABLY BE A GOOD LEAD IN TO THURSDAY NIGHT'S COMMON CORE DISCUSSION. SEE YOU THEN.

We are now in the days of Ellijah but we are also in the days of Noah. Noah let us to know there was total apathy toward the principles of Gods values and ways along with the rise of violence. It appears that apathy and violence is a day to day occurance and has made too many public schools in the urban communties war zones. can we as citizens continue to allow less when we should be demanding more. Its time to hold our elected officials accountable and no longer accept lip service and false promises. Those that have complied to this corruption should be dismissed and parents should be given the power to choose their childs school and not have them resigned to failing institutions.

On our June 2015 Recording 'Mary Magdalene' (avilable from www.hereonearth.ca) Red and The Council of Elders, channeled through deep trance medium Krow Fischer, talk about the Mystery Schools that Jesus and Mary's families were part of. We wondered about these schools. We want to know what they were teaching, what was the lineage of these schools, Greek or Druid or Egyptian origins? Or were there many of them with all the different teachings, Tibetan, Indian, Chinese as well as the western nations?
We are so curious about the spiritual education systems of times gone by. I bet you all will have tons of questions after listening to the Mary Magdalene recording that you can bring to this discussion.
The US Supreme Court has refused to hear the case of Bronx Household Of Faith. This statement is heard from co-chair of Right To Worship Rev. William Devlin "Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has denied our writ in Bronx Household, we will go humbly to Mayor DiBlasio asking him to change the NYC Department of Education policy-the mayor as public advocate marched with us in 2012, we hope and pray he remembers his commitment to faith-based institutions."
Last week Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) and Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) decided that their vast experience as suburban Wisconsin legislators qualififed them to introduce a bill that would literally take away Milwaukee Public Schools from the people of Milwaukee. Yes, they proposed a "public school take over bill." These bills have been passed in many urban areas across the country and have been proven to simply be a private take over of urban poor and minority populated schools. Later in the week it was announced that the bill was killed. However, the movement to privatize urban public schools has been way too lucrative to just let die. Instead of a bill, the Milwaukee School Take over Bill has been simply slated to be passed as part of the state budget process—truly undermining the political and social capital of the citizens of Milwaukee.
Tonight's special episode will feature Milwaukee school board member, former teacher and editor of Rethinking Schools Larry Miller, Wisconsin Public Education Network's Heather DuBois Bourenane, and Angela McManaman, President of Parents for Public Schools-Milwaukee.
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?
The Montgomery County Board of Education has begun interviewing candidates to be the next superintendent for Montgomery County Public Schools. The eight-member board chose not to renew Joshua Starr's contact, Montgomery County's recently-departed superintendent who left Montgomery County earlier this year in February.
The school system hired the firm Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates to conduct a nationwide search. So far, the search process has been tightly sealed from the public and board members have not spoken about any of the finalists.
During this episode, Ryan Miner will cohost A Miner Detail with former Montgomery County Board of Education candidate Laurie Halverson. Laurie and Ryan will detail the superintendent search process and what parents, teachers, and taxpayers should expect from the search committee.
Join Ryan and Laurie at 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 for a new episode of A Miner Detail!
