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.
Education reporter Cherise M. Newsome joins Pilot Radio to discuss a federal investigation that found Norfolk Public Schools negligent in handling complaints in middle and high schools about sexual harassment and treatment of students with disabilities. Newsome was first to break the story about the investigation, which concluded earlier this year. School leaders heard about the results in May, but not the general public. The Pilot published her story Sept. 27 after Newsome obtained a copy of the report from the U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights. On Sunday, The Pilot is scheduled to publish Newsome’s exclusive interview with the family that spurred the investigation.

Yet, webinar marketing and related follow up, including webinar sponsorships, are getting a lot of attention and for some companies may be the best way to generate leads.

Lisa is our guest as we get real about webinar marketing. Your host, Glen McCandless, poses questions about webinar marketing that may be on the mind of many sales and marketing professionals who serve the K-12 school market.
The host at SevsDeadSerious has been watching the abject failure of the Philadelphia School District; one that I taught in and one that my wife currently administrates in, continues to fail the young people of the city by chronic under-funding over the last 4 years due to the total neglect and closeted racism of the Republican led houses of legislature, as well as the state house with state idiot-in-chief Tom Corbett, who judging by his appointments give great credence to the addage of "white privledge" (ever notice how many privledged white guys deny white privledge...just sayin), leading to the current apocalyptic state of the Philadelphia schools. While yes the state has shown itself to be racist, the fed should also look at the overall state of education in America under the tutelage of the tall, former basketball player who graduated from Harvard and has done next-to-nothing as the Secretary of Education, save for some REALLY cute photo-ops with cute little kids...as for doing anything substantive, not so much. The kid in Philly wakes up every morning know that the state and federal government see them as having little value and reward them with even less opportunity. Like climate change, you can't just close your eyes and it will go away.
Shane Krauser, the host of Liberty Storm, ignites the flames of liberty on "Freedom Friday." Don't miss this show as you prepare to head into the weekend. Shane covered the following:
1. Minimum wage legislation is anti-poor.
2. The Fourth Amendment is under attack. But what if it means going after underage drinking? What about stopping drunk drivers?
3. A National Guard recruiter was instructed to stop handing out promotional t-shirts at a New York high school after teachers complained at the shirts featured a soldier holding a weapon. What?
4. Prayer in schools? One teacher is suspended for joining his football team in prayer.

It's one thing to punish students for fighting in school. It's another thing to actively teach a philosophy of "love your neighbor as yourself." We send children mixed messages - spanking them when they do something we don't like, entertaining them with violent TV shows, letting them listen to rap music that glorifies killing, then we punish them by suspending them from school when they fight. What if schools actively sought to TEACH nonviolence as way of life? Music artist Mitchbal has provided a tool that is intended to stear the hearts and minds of youth toward love and peace. What should adults do to help make a nonviolent society possible
