    Residential/Boarding Schools

    in News

    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.

    Mobile Technology in K-12 Schools: What You Need to Know!

    in Marketing

    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.

    Religious Schools, Religious Rules

    in Education

    SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR:  http://www.naturebox.com/thinkingatheist


    There are few experiences like attending a religious elementary school, high school or university.  Some religious institutions of "learning" are mild, moderate and relatively benign.  Others operate like puritan prisons.  And the strict (and often bizarre) rules imposed by these schools can be interesting, entertaining, and often alarming.


    This show features the experiences and stories of those raised in religious school environments.  Have something you want to share?  Email podcast@thethinkingatheist.com

    2015-02-23 The Need for Independent Afrikancentered Schools

    in Politics

    white female teachers are being recruited to teach young Black youth all around this country.  The impact has been absolutely devastating.  When these white females are not intentionally misdiagnosing Black children with learning disabilities, they are undermining the self-esteem of our youth and pushing them into learning-disabled situations.


    Additionally, the amerikkkan miseducation system is stripping the straightness out of our children by promoting "homosexuality" to our children as a preferable system of sexual behavior.  They are stripping the Blackness out of our children by teaching our children that slavery never happened and that our enslavement was not bad.  Additionally, they are confusing the very idea of what Blackness fundamentally is.  Lastly, they are promoting the sexually degenerate hip-hop culture to our children in order to strip any sense of pride and self-respect from them.


    In short, the whites are destroying the sanity and the promise of Black children throughout this country by warehousing them in miseducation institutions that resemble prisons more than learning institutions.  Let's talk about the need for independent Black educational institutions.

    Social Networking in Schools – Can Schools Demand Passwords

    in Legal

    Employers are not the only ones demanding social media passwords – schools are doing so too.  There has been lots of media attention about this – resulting in a surge of legislative activity on the issue.  In Illinois, a new law went into effect this year allowing school officials to have access to passwords to students’ social media accounts in certain situations.  The concern, of course, is how this impacts a student’s right to privacy under the Constitution and state laws.  This podcast with Kelly Anderson will explore the new law and how it could affect your children.

    Why Is Financial Education Not Taught In Schools?

    Why Is Financial Education Not Taught In Schools?


     


    Martha Stokes CMT was recently asked what would happen if everyone had financial education about the stock market. Would the stock market crash more? Would the stock market be more volatile? Why is it that there is no formal financial education in high schools or colleges, for people who are not majoring in economics or Financial Services degrees? Why are people never taught how the stock market really works?
