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.
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.

Lenon Honor asks the controversial question "Is spanking a child a form of child abuse?"
My name is Lenon Honor and I grew up experiencing various levels of child abuse. Now that I am a father of 5 children I have made the decision not to inflict any level of physical pain onto my children. My wife and I have learned that parents can discipline a child without causing physical pain. Our oldest child is 10 and our youngest child is 3 and we have not observed any negative behavioral issues that would suggest that our child rearing approach is in error.
Recently there have been several stories in the news concerning domestic violence. There has also been a high profile child abuse case involving NFL player Adrian Peterson. This child abuse case has sparked national debate concerning whether or not corporal punishment or spanking a child is an appropriate means of disciplining a child.
Do you believe that children must be spanked in order to be properly disciplined?
Do you believe that spanking a child is a form of child abuse?
Do you think that there should be limitations on the levels of physical pain that a parent can inflict upon a child?

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.
"Spare the rod, spoil the child" is the Biblical quote commonly used to justify the use of corporal punishment. But the author of "Beating Black Kids", sister Asadah Kirkland, explains some things that may help parents re-think that old time philosophy. What are we really teaching our children when we hit them? What are we saying about ourselves? What behavior will we see them manifest later on in life as a result of being hit as a child as a behavior control technique? And what happens when parents disagree about the use of corporal punishment? Is the one who hits seen as the "bad guy?" Is the one who doesn't hit seen as "weak?" When does "spanking" become "child abuse?" Who decides when punishment is too harsh? How should parents discuss this issue and what should they base their decisions on? Is disagreement about spanking or hitting children a deal breaker for couples who are considering marriage? Should it be?
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.
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?

Have you heard of the COOL CRITICS? We cover the spectrum and universe of conversation. Recently, the discipline, (SPANKING) given to his son, by Adrian Peterson, has brought attention to people spanking their kids. A lot of the older populus, has been spanked, from bush limbs, to tree branches, brushes, belts, hands, iron cords, (not chords, I don't think there is any harmony from an iron CHORD/CORD) The attention that the NFL has placed on this starting with the Ray Rice syndrome, has everyone chiming in - why should THE COOL CRITICS be any different???? 347-205-9366 - voice your opinion!!!
