    Franchise Interviews Meets with the KLA Schools Franchise Concept

    in Entrepreneur

    KLA Schools is an upscale preschool catering to children three months of age up to age six. KLA schools offers innovative early child care facilities along with a unique approach to early childhood education. The KLA Schools concept is inspired by cutting-edge educational philosophies including the Reggio Emilia Approach.

    KLA is building a world-class franchise organization that sets new standards for excellence within the children's educational services industry.

    Heavy reliance upon the Reggio Emilia Approach provides KLA with a different method than what has become the standard in American daycare and preschool franchises. Many parents who are seeking the best for their children are drawn to KLA's new system and the inspirational design of the schools. While childcare and preschool centers often lay claim to having a superior education program or curriculum, few back up this claim with a concrete, verifiable explanation.  We are meeting with Roberto Ortega, CEO and co-founder of KLA Schools.

    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.

    InnerSpeak - Jean Adrienne and Belinda Vanderbroeck - Residential Schools Impact

    in Spirituality

    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.

    Breaking the Chains.....Is Education or Indoctrination happening in Schools?

    in Motivation

    I have a dream...Celebrating Our Jubilee!

    Our forefathers and mothers planted trees from which we gather fruit, and dug wells from which we quench our thirst. Civil Rights Activist marched for us, died for us and pleaded for our equality.

    So what are we leaving behind for our communities today? What are we fostering in the minds of our Black children? How will we strengthen our families and our communities? How will we show the power of LOVE in the world? How are we Leading Change?

    Just over fifty years ago, Dr. King's "I Have a Dream..." Speech debuted in Detroit and transformed a nation. Today, we, the residents of Detroit, are uniting to become a beacon of light and love to usher in greater transformation within our capacity to love that will impact this city, nation and the world. As Detroit goes, so does the nation.

    Grass roots organizations and communities in Detroit are raising the bar on what's possible for us as Humans by elevating our consciousness to envision our lives as spirits in human form co-creating a world that reflects love, unity, compassion and Power. Find their destiny so you can powerfully play a role in Detroit's Re-birth that causes the world to notice!

    Today, we are turning our discussion to our education system as school is resuming next week in our city. We want to encourage dialogue on what are the expectations for our children during their educational journey and how it translates to them becoming a part of society. What role is expected of them that is reflecting in the education they receive? Is it inclusive of the children's culture and societal experiences or is it a mirage of the life they have no hope of achieving? It's time to have this conversation.

    Remember, we are powerful, and together we rise!

  • Our Urban High Schools Are Failing Us: What Now?

    in Education

    Our guest in August is Dr. Camille Farrington - Senior Research Associate, Consortium on Chicago School Research, will discuss her research on urban high schools.  She will discuss the psychological and systematic barriers to success and the ways we might redesign these schools for greater success with adolescents.  Given that the model we currently use is more than 100 years old, she proposes some innovative solutions to the roadblocks faced in many urban centers.  Join us at 2pm EST on August 12 for what promises to be a enlightening discussion.

    Camille A. Farrington is a Senior Research Associate at the University of Chicago, Consortium on Chicago School Research (CCSR), studying policy and practice in urban high school reform. She is a national expert on “noncognitive” factors in academic settings. Dr. Farrington is the author of Failing at School: Lessons for Redesigning Urban High Schools (2014, Teachers College Press); lead author of Teaching Adolescents to Become Learners: The Role of Noncognitive Factors in Shaping School Performance (2012, CCSR); and co-author of Foundations for Young Adult Success: A Developmental Framework (2015, CCSR).

    Saving Dyett: Are Public Schools Being Taken Over By Private Business?

    in Women

    Has public education become big business at the expense of our children? Dyett High School in Chicago is just one of many public schools in danger of closing and being reopened as a privately owned institution. Some say that's good - the more private institutions we have, the more control we have over our children's education. But private schools, unless heavily financed by large corporations, tend to fail because schools rely on families to meet budget requirements through tuition. When tuition costs rise, families leave the school and this creates a greater financial burdon on the remaining families. The downward spiral effect leads to good private schools closing. In areas where coporations have taken over the schools and made them private, many local children are excluded from attending. Jitu Brown, National Director for the Journey For Justice Alliance, is working with the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization (KOCO) to insure that Dyett remains a viable public school, and is not closed and reopened as a private, corporately owned school that excludes neighborhood students.
