SORT BY Relevancy
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.

An interview with DR. GWENDOLYN J COOKE

NCEBC wants to welcome the full village to question, understand, and ask questions, about governance, educational policy, finances, resources, and the basic democratic principles of equity, fairness, and justice. It is important (if not, vital) that we have this conversation to continue to dispel the myth that black children are incapable of achieving high test scores, therefore public schools are incapable of providing quality education.
"We believe in accountability. We believe that data drives decision-making. We believe in research-based practices. These principles have been used for generations by high performing schools, principals and Superintendents; especially those working and succeeding in urban communities were poverty and race are the dominant elements. This conversation is about the politics, power, economics, and restructuring of a public school system into a charter school system."
Diana Daniels, Executive Director, National Council on Educating Black Children
Open used to be simply the opposite of closed, however, in the digital age that is no longer exactly true. Many people think that when it comes to software and instructional materials, open means free. Well, it is not that simple as there are many ways to define Open. In this show we will explore the business models that involve Open content and the many dimensions of what it means to be Open. We’ll discuss how existing publishers can join the Open movement and the emerging business models around Open.
Guests at the table:

Randy Reina, Working at the crossroads of educational technology, systems interoperabilty, and organizational development

Join me online and follow along while I read this educational story.
Just so my listeners are aware, I have a physical disability called Friedreich's ataxia which is a form muscular dystrophy and it affects my speech. But I try my best to speak as clearly as I can! I do hope that any child with or without a disability can look up to me and realize that as long as you do your best, you can do whatever you want in life too.

E2 Young Engineers have developed a variety of different programs that can be used to teach the most important subjects. Children joining their educational community can learn and enjoy the likes of arithmetic, physics, and mechanical and software engineering. E2 Young Engineers have developed special programs and workshops suited to children at both ends of the learning spectrum, from gifted children to those with learning disabilities. Unlike traditional teaching methods, our use of stories, experiments and demonstrations ensures that all children joining our enrichment programs will learn while they have fun. In fact, they’ll have so much fun they may not even realize they’re learning.
In this show we will be covering models of healing coming from a broad range of disciplines, integrating the best of modern science with the best of the healing wisdom that has been transmitted to us from the most ancient cultures.
