    Atlanta Public School Scandal: The Real Lesson to be Learned

    in Family

    We have remained silent concerning the Atlanta Public School scandal so that "justice" could take its course.  Now, that the "truth" has been revealed and several Atlanta public schools administrators and teachers were adjudged guilty by a jury of their peers and sentenced for racketeering convictions related to a massive standardized test cheating scandal, Attorney Sherri Jefferson will share her thoughts on the "Real Lesson to be Learned."


    This episode will discuss how cheating adversely affects the lives of our children, the moral and legal issues of the jury decisions, the tactics that still exist at and through the Atlanta Public School that promotes the environment that is conducive to the conduct exhibited by their adminsitrators and teachers.


    Attorney Jefferson will discuss how the jury verdict will not change the APS culture.

    Talk Back Tuesday's: Atlanta Public School Scandal!

    in Self Help

    Last Tuesday, eight Atlanta Public Schools employees were sentenced to prison in one of the largest school cheating scandals in American history. The educators were convicted of racketeering — a felony typically reserved for mob bosses, drug kingpins and terrorists.

    While similar scandals have occurred in 39 different states and Washington, D.C., the offenders have rarely been prosecuted as criminals. Yet in an unprecedented move, the prosecutors in Atlanta charged the educators under Georgia's "Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act" — a law passed in 1980 specifically to combat the scourge of organized crime. RICO laws, which EXIST at the federal level and in 33 states, empower prosecutors to go after the leaders of organized crime who order but do not personally commit crimes such as robbery, money laundering and murder. Individuals convicted under such laws can face up to 20 years in prison.

    Did the charges fit the crime? Was this organized crime? or simply unethical? Are we so familiar with justice not being served that when it is we think its unjust or even racism. Is this a prime example of overciminization in America? And most importantly What about the CHILDREN? 

    Call in and let's discuss this case and the educational system in America today. How can we improve or change the systemic and blatant disregard for education and justice for the real victims in this case. Come Get on the COUCH and let's talk about this and much more!!!!

    Public School teachers hate School Choice

    in Politics

    There is a lot of truth that all public school teachers do hate school choice, for they hate the fact that they many not have a job. 


    I have been told that every child in the United States of America does belone to the government by all public school teachers, and it is up to the government to raise all children according the the way the liberals, democrats, and republicans that happen to agree with this "Statement that all children are property of the United States Government" this come from the public school teachers that tell me to stop premoting school chioce, for they even said they hate the compantion of what school choice would bring.

    School Corruption And Choas In Public Schools

    in Moms and Family

    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.
