Gentle World Cafe host, Suparna Malhotra, talks with Elisa Paloschi, about her film.
Driving with Selvi is a documentary film that tells the story of a remarkable young woman who defies strict patriarchal traditions and escapes a child marriage to become South India’s first female taxi driver.
We first meet 18-year-old Selvi at a girls’ shelter in 2004 - timid, soft-spoken, a fresh runaway from a violent past and the victim of a life set against her.
Over the 10 years filmed, we see a remarkable transformation as Selvi finds her voice and refuses to surrender to societal expectations – learning to drive, starting her own taxi company and working on the front lines of reproductive health education.
Instead of adhering to the patriarchal codes that oppress and restrict women, Selvi’s bold determination defies and challenges them. Will she hold steadfast on her road to economic empowerment? Will she remarry? After being unwanted and abused by her own mother, will she be able to break the vicious cycle of devaluing girls so prevalent in her society?
This character-driven story highlights the challenges that the disempowered female population in India face. While the film offers a glimpse into a world of poverty, prejudice and desperate circumstances, it shatters stereotypes as Selvi redefines herself from victim to survivor.
Through Selvi’s eyes, the audience is taken on an intimate journey, and perhaps even a familiar one, of healing, overcoming obstacles, and fulfilling dreams. Throughout this journey, it is Selvi’s unwavering spirit that shines through. Her refusal to surrender offers inspiration, hope and the clear message that anything is possible.
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.

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?

Holy Trinity Catholic High School seeks to form the Christian Leaders of Tomorrow; we strive to develop the intellect, educate the heart, and form the character of each student by giving witness to Gospel values.
There will be times for students when all the academic education in the world will not give them the answers they need. Such answers are found only through faith.
Catholic school education seeks to guide students to these answers in an atmosphere that is wholly unique. Each Catholic school is a faith community within an academic community where the intensive collaboration among parents, students, and staff results in a comprehensive learning environment that goes well beyond the 3 R’s.
The Diocese of Austin’s 22 Catholic schools provide an outstanding product to our students. Our faculty and staff nurture and sustain the God-given gifts that each student possesses. With the support of the diocesan Strategic Plan for Catholic Schools, our schools work diligently to ensure that the opportunity of a Catholic school education is open to all. Last year, our diocesan schools provided $4 million in financial assistance to families seeking a Catholic school education.
Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Austin make a difference in our parishes, our communities and the lives of thousands of young people every year. Visit a Catholic school to find out how you can sponsor a Catholic school education for a student in your community.
The national debate over separating religion from schools is a very old one. the aggressive movement to ban and remove religion from schools altogether is a very nasty one. Many points of reason have been cited for wanting religion, religious practices or even mere verbal references of religion in schools banned--but all of them tread so boldly across the fine line that balances the meaning of freedom of religion and segregation via personal prejudices. join in tonight with your thoughts on this topic by calling 347-327-9967 at 10:30 pm EST.
