President Obama visited Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) last week to discuss his administration's education agenda. He called for high-quality pre-school for every 4-year-old in the country, access to high-speed Internet for all students, lower college costs, and schools that are redesigned to teach high-tech skills.
My guests, Heather Hiles, Founder and CEO of PathBrite, and Dr. Debra Mahone, Director of State and Federal Programs for the Prince George's County Public School District, will talk to us about what technology in education really looks like for educators and why technology is critical to ensuring equity for all students.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which works with schools and other organizations to create education equity plans and promote equity in education.
Why is it important to talk about poverty in education? How do we do that in a way that is respectful and meaningful?
Many times, discussions about education reform intentionally conflate race and class. There are a few reasons for this, including that the federal courts have slowly closed the courthouse doors to claims of race discrimination in education. Courts also have almost completely prohibited voluntary efforts to create racial diversity in schools. As a result, equity proponents have been forced into a difficult position - using socioeconomic status as a proxy for race. This often leaves educators, community members, and others thinking about poverty only in terms of race. Our special guest, Dr. Adriane Williams, will equip listeners with the necessary tools to navigate between the overlapping worlds of race and poverty in education.
I have invited some of my lawyer friends to Know-It-All to talk about the law and education and the work they do every day to ensure that children all over this nation receive a quality education. We'll talk about the school-to-prison pipeline, access to advanced courses, special education, charter schools, and more.
Join me; Shakti Belway, a civil rights attorney and expert; Timothy Riveria of the Advocates for Justice and Education, Inc.; and Stephen Chen, a civil rights attorney for the federal government, for an in-depth look at how the law impacts education.

The Education Trust recently released a new report, "The State of Education for Native Students." This report found that while achievement gaps for students of color are slowly closing, academic achievement for American Indian and Alaska Native students has stagnated, contributing to widening gaps between Native students and their white peers.
On this episode of Know-It-All, the author of the report, Natasha Ushomirsky, and Daria Hall, both from the Education Trust, will join us to talk about the report's findings and about those schools that have gotten it right for Native students.

We are told over and over that schooling is an indispensible aspect of society, yet the most fundamental and essential skills required to be productive and happy as an individual are typically glossed over.
One example of this is how shools argue and fight over teaching kids sex education, but there is no relationship education or courses teaching students how to build great relationships and search for love while also protecting themselves from hurt.
This is so obvious it boggles the mind, yet the so called "educated" experts have not thought of this... or have they and they simply have an agenda. Can you think of any reasons why schools would teach sex education without first teaching relationships?

This week we take a look at the elevated unemployment rate amongst veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. While nobody wants to see any American citizen struggle to find a job, the rate for veterans is especially disturbing. There are many factors involved in this disturbing information, and we break them down during the program.
With so many important news stories out there today, sometimes our military news get’s overlooked. Well here on All American Veterans, that simply won’t be the case. In future programs, you’ll be hearing from military leaders, past and present, as we discuss the news that affects our nation’s heroes. We also talk to some of the most patriotic Americans in the entertainment industry who have proven throughout the years that our military heroes hold a special place in their hearts.
Recently I sat down with Mr. Lee Greenwood to talk about his unwavering support for our troops, and you’ll be amazed at how much the singer best known for his hit song “God Bless the USA” does to support the men and women who sacrifice so much for this great nation.
This is the inaugural show of of America's Disabled Veterans in Action
We are here to intorduce our hosts and share in a General Session where we are speaking up about what is going on in the Veteran community. We will be taking calls sharing Ideas and bringing Guests to you to discuss veterans issues and issues that affect their families. We hope to help spur a better quality of life for veterans by helping Veterans have a place that you can come to for civil discussion about current affairs or just to hang out for fellowship
We are a group of disabled Veterans who are active advocates for the rights of veterans who have served in the United States Military and their families. We advocate for the rights of veterans. We talk to the the poloticians who want to talk to us and we promote Americanism and common issues all veterans face
What is the quality of life for the average US Veteran? One thing I know, from experience. The average veteran turns fault on self before pointing fingers. When will Veterans get to the top of America's to-do-list? We tweeted this question and this show to every group listed below. I pose the same quesion to every American. When will Veterans get to the top of all Americans to-do-list?
President Barack Obama
Congress 435 members
Senate 100 members
Governors 50 of y'all
State legislators salaried too
Mayors across America
Clergy especially y'all with great donations thanks to 501c
When will Veterans get to the top of America's To-Do-List. Veterans are some of America's proudest citizens. They voluntarily gave their time to make America as safe as possible. They are not receiving the return they deserve.
Veterans need all kinds of services average citizen needs as well as services that are totally service related. The kindest thing I can say about saying to veterans "thank you for your service is that statement is comes across as disingenuous. There are veterans we meet everyday who we do not know to be veterans. This is why saying thank you for your service is not enough. Veterans need to feel in their everyday life that America is indeed thankful for the services given to this "ungrateful country. And guess what guys? Veterans will scold me for saying this country is ungrateful, for the veterans I know love this country and have never ever said a negative word about America. I know veterans who died early and I attribute those early deaths to suffering and disappointment they lived with after serving this country.
When will Veterans get to the top of America's to-do-list?
