SORT BY Relevancy
Bookstores are quickly becoming a thing of the past . . . just a distant memory . . . although this saddens me, it also causes me to reflect on how our access to information is rapidly changing. No longer must we hunt and peck with card catalogs, microfiche or encyclopedias, the world of information is at our fingertips. This not a novel revelation; however, it is reasonable to assume that our educational institutions may be next on the chopping block. If

The shameful history of murderous violence in our schools has become an all too common occurrence. Prepare yourselves for the schools of today and the educational warehouses of tomorrow. Welcome to the violence-proofed school building of the 21st century. We avoid landscaping because it gives a tactical advantage to those attacking the school. We ensure we have extra police patrols around the perimeter to detect anyone leaving without authorization as well as entering without permission. We use high-impact security lighting to flood-light the entire exterior of the school and a 10-foot chain-link security fence. Students come to school in video-equipped buses with two-way radios with speed-dials for 911 and GPS tracking for rapid tactical deployment. Students who drive are provided a 10-foot chain-link fence with razor wire patrolled by law enforcement with a zero-tolerance policy toward all weapons and augmented by random vehicle checks. A security guard checks every human being coming into the school regardless of age, position, or status. There are reinforced concrete dividers separating the school from the parking lot doubling to block drive-by shootings or school bombing attempts.
The students have embedded GPS chips within them as well as ID cards attached to their dress above their left breast pockets for quick visual ID. CCTV's record all visual intelligence information throughout the school and are constantly monitored by an Officer within the school to coordinate Quick Response teams.

It seems bullying is everywhere. We are actively addressing it in schools, in communities, and in families…and now also workplaces. Over the past several years, there has been a deluge of information about workplace bullying, some accurate and some not so much. In order to effectively address bullying, we need to ensure we have valid and reliable information. In this program, we will put on our researcher hats and examine what we know empirically about workplace bullying in terms of its prevalence, nature, antecedents, and consequences.

Historically Black Colleges and Universities have been under attack for decades, accused of being "unnecessary" in this supposedly "color blind" society. Many such schools, founded after Emancipation and providing that much needed boost for African Americans who had been deprived of education for generations, are now struggling with underfunding and lack of financial support. Likewise, many African Centered grammar schools and even some high schools, founded during the movement for black empowerment, have struggled to remain alive, also lacking the financial support to maintain dedicated teachers and quality programs. Makita Kheperu, Chief Education officer at Betty Shabazz International Charter School and graduate of Howard University, examines the need for education based on history culture and a collective goal for achievement as provided by institutions that stress pride in racial heritage. As a former school principal, classroom teacher and a parent of two children attending the PUSH Excel HBCU Tour during this Spring Break, she discusses the effects of culturally based education on preparing African American students to succeed in the "real world."
