Host Russ Letica will discuss the painful and horrible legacy of the Residential Boarding Schools.
The Reservation Boarding School System was a war in disguise. It was a war between the United States government and the children of the First People of this land. Its intention was that of any war, elimination of the enemy. The reason this war is difficult to recognize is because it was covered by the attractive patina of a concept called "Manifest Destiny." Manifest Destiny was a philosophy by which the white european invader imagined themselves as having a divine right to take possession of all land and its fruits.
In any encounter with mainstream historical accounts, it is obvious that Native People were very little more than a "problem" to be solved by the colonizers. To white society, they were heathens and behaved like savages. They had no written language, their children were unschooled, and for the most part they didn't know how to stay in one place, many moved their villages according to the seasons. If these people, these Natives, were ever going to amount to anything in this United States of America, they had to be taught the proper and acceptable way to live. All aspects of Native culture or way of life were unacceptable to the white european mind.

Entering the K-12 school market has always been tough. But now with the shift from print to digital there are new barriers affecting everyone - newcomers and veterans alike. There is debate among industry managers about how we will handle these new barriers, including panelists for the keynote session titled "Barriers to Entry" at EdNet 2013. Following that session, K-12 PR and social media marketing expert Charlene Blohm intercepted Filament Games CEO Lee Wilson to get his reaction to what the panelists had to say. Charlene and STS host Glen McCandless discuss the panel session, the barriers and the implications for sales and marketing managers who work for ed tech companies.

These are some of the questions that Andrew Bernstein and I will discuss with Dr. LePort on "Objectively Speaking" on Tuesday, October 8th at 8:00 pm ET.
As, Andrew Bernstein says - "This will be an informative and ispiring discussion regarding the single most important topic in the world: educating the mind."

Co-Host of "Objectively Speaking"
Today the United States has approximately 1.8 million people behind bars: about 100,000 in federal custody, 1.1 million in state custody, and 600,000 in local jails. Prisons hold inmates convicted of federal or state crimes; jails hold people awaiting trial or serving short sentences. The United States now imprisons more people than any other country in the world—perhaps half a million more than Communist China. The American inmate population has grown so large that it is difficult to comprehend: imagine the combined populations of Atlanta, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Des Moines, and Miami behind bars. "We have embarked on a great social experiment," says Marc Mauer, the author of the upcoming book The Race to Incarcerate. "No other society in human history has ever imprisoned so many of its own citizens for the purpose of crime control." The prison boom in the United States is a recent phenomenon. Throughout the first three quarters of this century the nation's incarceration rate remained relatively stable, at about 110 prison inmates for every 100,000 people. In the mid-1970s the rate began to climb, doubling in the 1980s and then again in the 1990s. The rate is now 445 per 100,000; among adult men it is about 1,100 per 100,000. During the past two decades roughly a thousand new prisons and jails have been built in the United States. Nevertheless, America's prisons are more overcrowded now than when the building spree began, and the inmate population continues to increase by 50,000 to 80,000 people a year.
