Join me on Sunday, May 13, 2013 from 8:00 pm to 8:30 pm for my discussion about the validity of Year Round School Calendars and Traditional School Calendars and the impact if any on student achievement. School districts around the country have begun to re-examine the benefits and challenges of extending school days and the school year. In Washington DC, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and schools chancellor Kaya Henderson are considering expanding the school day and school year as an attempt to improve overall test scores and increase graduation rates. Currently the school week for students attending the District of Columbia Public Schools consist of 30 hours, which according to Mayor Gray is simply no longer enough time. Many champions of the extended school day and year believe adding more time will increase the ability of American students to compete with their global peers. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a chief proponent of the longer school year, says American students have fallen behind the world academically.
However, there are those who do not support an extended school day or school and suggest there is little to no evidence that support an improvement in academic performance. “Opponents of extended school point out that states such as Minnesota and Massachusetts steadily shine on standardized achievement tests while preserving their summer break with a post-Labor Day school start” (Julie Carr Smyth (2013). Join me on Sunday, May 12, 2013 on Parent Talk Live, home of important educational discussions germane to parents and their communities. My guest will be Tina Bruno.
Tina Bruno is the executive director of the national advocacy organization, The Coalition for a Traditional School Calendar. Under her direction the cry of parents for a longer summer vacation has become a national issue and many states have enjoyed the passage of school start date legislation.

Join Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 8:00 pm for Part 2 of his discussion on Teacher Attrition. Is the American teaching profession in trouble? Does the profession which serves as the gateway to nearly every occupation in the world garner the appropriate honor and importance in society today? How much of the challenges facing teachers are created by demand parents, increase student accountability and potentially poor working conditions? Tune in Sunday, April 21, 2013 for a very important discussion on why teachers are leaving the ranks of educators.
Dr. Robinson’s guest will be Gail P. Bingham. Ms. Bingham is a veteran teacher of more than 21 years and she is the author of a soon to be released book TEACHING Is The New Slavery. In her book, Ms. Bingham explores what she describes as a culture of persecution, retaliation, abuse, bullying and harassment as means to control teachers, which ultimately drives many teachers to leave the profession. Ms. Bingham suggests teacher attrition rates are to a large extent attributed to the "Pressures teachers face from administrators and other members of the community due to an expectation that teachers are solely responsible for student success and failure." She also believes the pressure and mistreatment experienced by teachers has led to tragic outcomes and simply quitting is the least of the effects on the lives of educators.
