    Do Poor Kids Deserve Lower-Quality Education?

    in Education

    As we approach the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, an important new study reveals a separate and unequal system of education in this country. This new research indicates that the proliferation of charter schools is not benefiting our nation's most vulnerable children and is potentially detrimental to them. Not only that, but the current motivations behind the charter movement are not entirely altruistic.


    Dr. Gordon Lafer is the author of that study, and he joins us on this episode of Know-It-All to talk about the disturbing results and about what we can do to counter the movement and focus on equity for all of our children.


    Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans and promotes equity in education in compliance with federal civil rights law.

    ACADEMIC SUCCESS PARTS 2 & 3: Learning Environments & Quality Education

    in Education

    Academic Success is like a lock and key.  The Schooling Process, the Learning Environment, the Quality of Education and the Household DNA must all be in sync to maximize the academic success of the child and facilitate the child reaching their full potential.


    Are you concerned about Quality Education and Teachers? First, the schooling process needs to leverage your child's strengths.  The Schooling process is the set-up for how education will be delivered and what will be delivered.


    There are three basic Learning Environments focusing on how education/instruction will be delivered. 
    You will learn about Face to Face, Blended and Virtual learning environments.  Your child may not be getting a 21st century education because of the learning environment.  


    Do you know what to look for in a learning environment?  Is your household supporting a 21st century education?
