Belinda Vandenbroeck is a member of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation from The Pas, Manitoba. She was born at Big Eddy Reserve at home. She lived with and was bought up by her grandparents from the time she was one month old. Belinda went to the Anglican Church residential school, Mackay School, in Dauphin, Manitoba from 1957-1967. Her parents also attended the old Mackay School at Big Eddy Reserve where they were born.
She has lived a life of sobriety for 39 years and has been traveling her healing journey for as many years. Her life’s goal and passion has always been to learn about anything and everything that has to do with healing. I continue to carry on this passion to the present.
She has a B.A. in Native Studies and Psychology and is also trained in Time Line Therapy which assists individuals to heal the past from the root cause. Her company does 5 day personal development retreats for Aboriginal women. She has been doing presentations and workshops on the effects of residential schools, health and wellness for the past 25 years.
Belinda and Jean will discuss the impact the residential schools have had on the aboriginal culture in Canada.
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.
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.
It is a great honor that Native Elder Charlie Thompson From BC Canada speak to his experience in residential schools in Canada.
Elder Thompson passion is to raise the awareness of the truth about these schools in his experience and to represent his experience.
Elder Thompson has worked very hard for years in communities as a social worker and trying to help others recover and heal from the First Nations Residential School Experience.
His voice means a lot to me personally and I know it will mean a lot to many others when you hear him speak. It is a great honor to debut our radio show with Elder Thompson.
I have included photos of Elder Thompson in which he gave me permission to use the photos. Not to be copied by others without his prior consent and permission personally.
You don't want to miss it folks.
For the first 8 mins at the beginning of the show, Canada's Government apology will play.
Once Elder Charlie Thompson finishes speaking, he will take calls from listeners.
Added at the end of this audio a beautiful Native American Indian song.
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.
Every year a special group of schools convene to showcase their schools for children with special needs.
One of the hardest things as a parent isfinding the "right school". Althoough the options have grown in the past 10 years, the business of specialing in special needs has been historically EXCEPTIONAL.

Edwards called the Minneapolis Public Schools and asked why an “AMBER ALERT” or “ROTO-CALL” was not done. School officials said it did not meet the threshold. The Minneapolis and St. Paul Public Schools have failed children of color one to many times. Join us as we talk about education, some history about Minnesota and current events.

WHAT'S GOING ON IN PHILADELPHIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. IS SCHOOL CHOICE THE ANSWER ?
Starlee Coleman formerly of The National Public Charter Schools Association has set me up with Bob Bowdon who is an expert on school choice and runs "Choice Media' and we are going to discuss the stae of Philly and I don't mean Pennsylvania. I'm a K-12 grad of Philly Public Schools and we'll get some good insights from Bob.
Continuing on with our discussion about the age-old fight regarding religion being allowed in public schools. The lines of freedom of religion are seriously crossed if a ban is approved, as it protects those who choose no religion against those who have one they practice. But is the problem in the invasion of public rights of Americans, or is it the government's interference into our private ones? With the double-edged swords of free access to sexual activity, contraception, abortion, child protective services and adult driver's licenses without a parent's consent, while still holding the parents of underage children accountable for the messes these government-sanctioned permissions create...could the confusion of the Catch 22 be the root problem?

National Conflict Resolution Day was October 16th.
On Today's Episode, you will meet…Ken Johnson. We will discuss current issues of student conflict, performance, and behavior in the school system.
Unbroken Circles for Schools, deals with issues of student conflict, performance, behavior, etc. in the school system. In America we arrest over 2 million juveniles a year. Florida is a top arrester of children with 58 thousand being taken into custody every year . . . most tried on felony and misdemeanor charges for rather trivial offenses that no adult would ever be charged with. The #1 reason an incarcerated person leaves a juvenile detention facility is to be transported to an adult prison to finish out the rest of their sentence.
Ken Johnson is a culturist and conflict dynamics specialist with over 16 years experience in the criminal justice system and previous teaching experience. Starting college at the age of 16, he holds a BA in Social Sciences from the University of West Florida and an MBA from Saint Leo University.
He serves as the Principal Chief of the Florida Tribe of Cherokee Indians, has served on numerous government boards, and was commissioned by the Governor of Kentucky as a Colonel. His op-ed pieces on culture and conflict have been featured worldwide and he was even asked to be a contributor to a UN paper on conflict issues in Africa.
