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.
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.
There is a white male, maybe more than one abducting little black girls in Minneapolis. Co-host Ronald A. 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.
Segregation by race and income in American schools is increasing. Though not measurable by today's standardized testing tools, the social and emotional benefits of diversity and integration for ALL students are tremendous.

Michael is also executive vice president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, a think tank focused on K-12 education policy.
Host, Allison R. Brown, is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans for schools and helps non-profit organizations to promote equity in education.

In love with writing a chilling murder mystery, B. Berry is the author of several books across genres including that which brings American history into the mix reminiscent of a good book by any black author at large in years past Sometimes writing under the name Barbara Grovner, B. Berry has written a peculiar novel set in the time of the Black Movement of the 1960's, Clothesline Blues. Bloody Sunday is the backdrop of this book as two women quietly riot in their own movement in their backyard. In her books, Barbara Grovner takes a whole lot of plot and turns it into its own diversity campaign for better characters and storylines that don't blend in added with some cold twists. This Florida author is trying everything possible in her writing for a job lauded as well done in the literary community. B. Berry's book Cold Crazy is the first in the Cold series.
