SORT BY Relevancy
Parents who advocate for education reform may sometimes find themselves at odds with school administrators, some of whom parent activists may be blaming for low student academic performance. When a parent dares to speak out against what the parent believes are harmful policies or practices in the school, does that parent and that parent's child get targeted for retaliation by school officials. Bogan High School LSC Parent Leader Reva Brown shares her story and raises questions about the rights of parents to stand up to school officials when they believe their children are being deliberately denied a good education.
When parents advocate for better education for their children, some school administrators may take their complaints as a personal attack, what happens when school officials and parents are at odds? Local School Council parent leader Reva Brown tells her story and raises the question: When school officials attack parents who fight for better education, what are we really teaching our children?
The use of social media channels by educators continues to expand. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, blogs, and other online destinations are where just about everyone interacts. What does the social media explosion mean for education marketing? How can suppliers of products and services best leverage social media channels to engage school administrators who make the buying decisions? How important is social media as part of the school marketing mix? Join host Glen McCandless for a 15-minute discussion around this timely topic as we welcome Charlene Blohm, an education-market focused PR and social media marketing expert.
The education industry is in the midst of a major paradigm shift. Free products are challenging traditional rules. Pressure is mounting to find new sources of revenue, and many K-12 market experts say selling services to school administrators is an important trend. You may be blinded by what is happening or you may be looking for some clarity. What is driving this trend, what impact is it having, and what should you be doing to refocus and reshape your businesses? How do you ensure future success as we continue to feel the affects of the new business models and new players in the K-12 space? Join host Glen McCandless, author of new article on this topic, for an interview with industry veteran Lou Pugliese, a leader who has been in the thick of this shift and can offer front-line perspective.

THE BULLY AND THE BULLIED
Kids get bullied. Adults get bullied. Workers get bullied. It’s just a fact of life, right? We grow up change jobs, move new places and there’s no harm, no foul, right? Well, maybe not. Could bullying actually be tied to abuse, domestic violence and long term consequences? What happens when your parent or your teacher is the bully? Or your supervisor at work or a relative?
Lisa Freeman, award winning author and speaker, will help us sort it all out Saturday. She’s appeared on TCT Today, Family Life Radio, Family Forum, news programs (such as WNEM-TV 5, WEYI-TV 25, WILNS-TV 6, ABC-TV 12 and more!) and has made headlines in newspapers both at the local and national level. For four years she hosted her own televised ministry “A Time to Heal.” Currently she writes a blog, “Abuse Bites but True Love Heals” to inspire others. She also lost a son in 2010, who had been bullied all his life for having Asperger’s Syndrome and a rare heart disease. Both personally and professionally, Lisa knows the ins and outs of bullying.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about the causes, effects, and long term consequences of bullying.

Students in classes from pre-school to graduate levels experience the
impact of stress related to war, violence, and/or trauma. However,
stress is subjective and all human beings react differently based on
their genetic make-up, personality, experiences, and environment.
Adult Learners with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and
Depression experience even greater stress and anxiety handling
everyday pressures of work and school schedules. In addition, the
competition for present and future jobs is another source of great
stress for most Adult Learners. Dr. Applewhite and guests will discuss
ways to minimize the impact of stress reported by Adult Learners and
Student Veterans regarding conflicts in Syria, Iran, Afghanistan,
African countries and other places around the world. Listen to the
episodes of the Student2Teacher(tm) show any day of the week and our
schedule of shows by visiting www.whiteappleinstitute.org .To learn
more about how you can support our disabled students and Veterans
achieve their education and workforce goals visit

Genesis 24: 41-58
Then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou comest to my kindred; and if they not give nthee one, thou shalt be clear from my oath, vs. 42. And I came this day unto the well, and said, O LORD God of my master Abraham, if now thou do prosper my way which I go:
vs. 43. Behold I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her give me, I pray thee a little water of thy pitcher to drink: vs. 44. And she say to me, both drink thou, and I will also draw for thy camels : let the same be the womanwhom the Lord has appointed out for my mster's son. vs. 45. before I had done speaking in my heart, behold Rebekah came forth with her picher on her sholder; and she went down unto the well, and drew water: and I said unto her, let me drink I pray thee
vs. 46. And she made haste and let down her pitcher from her sholder, and she said Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also, so I drank and she made the camels drink also. vs. 47. And I asked her and said whose daughter art thou? And she said the daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bear unto him. And I put the earings upon her face and the bracelet upon her hands.
