    Do African Centered Schools and HBCUs Really Prepare Students For The "Real World"?

    in Women

    Historically Black Colleges and Universities have been under attack for decades, accused of being "unnecessary" in this supposedly "color blind" society. Many such schools, founded after Emancipation and providing that much needed boost for African Americans who had been deprived of education for generations, are now struggling with underfunding and lack of financial support. Likewise, many African Centered grammar schools and even some high schools, founded during the movement for black empowerment, have struggled to remain alive, also lacking the financial support to maintain dedicated teachers and quality programs.  Makita Kheperu, Chief Education officer at Betty Shabazz International Charter School and graduate of Howard University, examines the need for  education based on history culture and a collective goal for achievement as provided by institutions that stress pride in racial heritage. As a former school principal, classroom teacher and a parent of two children attending the PUSH Excel HBCU Tour during this Spring Break, she discusses the effects of culturally based education on preparing African American students to succeed in the "real world."

    What Are The Positives of An African-Centered Education?

    in Education

    A Conversation With Dr. Carol D. Lee: What Are The Positives of An African-Centered Education?
    In Chicago 1969, Lee and her husband helped to found the Institute of Positive Education. This community-based, African-centered organization sponsored seminars on issues with which the black community wrestled, and it held classes, ran a food co-op and farm, and published a magazine and pamphlets.
    In 1972, under Lee’s direction, the institute even began its own school, New Concept Development Center, which started as a Saturday program and expanded into a full-fledged school by 1974. Both the institute and New Concept Development Center still operate today, not to mention the three charter schools in Chicago that Lee also cofounded: the Betty Shabazz International Charter School, the Barbara A. Sizemore Academy, and the DuSable Leadership Academy.
    African-centered schools, such as New Concept and the Betty Shabazz International Charter School campuses, take an expansive view of cultures, Lee says.
    Lee received her PhD in education from the University of Chicago in 1991 and currently is a professor in the Learning Sciences Program of the School of Education and Social Policy with a joint appointment in African American studies, both at Northwestern University. She is also well known for her “cultural modeling” theory, which provides a framework for the design of instruction in ways that leverage everyday knowledge of youth, especially youth of color, to support discipline specific learning. One goal is to use the everyday knowledge of these students to teach vital concepts.

    It's Not About Freedom, Tolerance, or Equality

    in Politics Conservative

    One of the prevailing themes for me this week has centered around one particular story that I'm going to share with you on today's show.  Every "minority class" in this country has a gripe these days it seems and specifically there's two minority classes that have a gripe with Christians.  Those two classes are the LGBT people and also people of a secular or even admitted Satanic "faith".  What's going on in our military is tragic and actually outright offensive in terms of the environment that is being created for people of a Christian faith.  So I'll share an article that shows what that's doing in terms of whether Christians even want to join the military.  Also, we're getting to a point in which I'm afraid equality under the law, that infamous 14th Amendment is at risk.  But it's not at risk in the way most people are saying.  There's also a story in Oklahoma in which *GASP* a teacher passed out bibles to her students.  Not only did the humanists get involved in that, but the Satanists have as well now.  If time permits, you'll find out how on today's show.  Plus, I'll try to throw in some encouraging news if I can from North Carolina.  But the key thing here is these minority activists do not want freedom, equality, or tolerance in our culture.  They want power and they want to continue to root Christianity from the culture's mainstream.  That's today's show at 4:30 Eastern time, archived afterward.

    YHWH Corrects You, For I am the YHWH, I change not;

    in The Bible

    My son, despise not the chastening of the YHWH; neither be weary of his correction: Prov 3:11


    Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish. A good man obtaineth favour of theYHWH: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn. A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved. Prov 12:1-3


    O YHWH, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return. Jer 5:3


    For I am the YHWH, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Mal 3:6


    All scripture is given by inspiration of YHWH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness 2 Tim 3:15
