KDSL will interview Amina Brown of NFTE or Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship on 16 April 2013 at 12noon EST.
As a former District of Columbia Public School English and Journalism teacher at both the junior high and high school level, Ms. Amina Brown is familiar with the challenges that at-risk, neglected and abandon youth confront daily. First hand encounters with children orphaned by AIDS, drug addiction, and stories of struggle through extreme poverty--often under a pervasive and unremitting threat of lethal violence serve as motivation for Ms. Brown’s commitment to education reform and innovative curriculum design. Ms. Brown is currently the Senior Director of Programs for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship where she is charged with helping NFTE DC fulfill its potential as a force for change by building an ever-expanding and increasingly academic strategy leveraging private and public sectors committed to educational excellence and opportunity for all children.
Prior to her experience at NFTE, Ms. Brown was an Instructional Performance Coach at Anacostia Senior High School as part of DCPS’ School Turnaround and Restructuring Effort. Prior to this experience, Ms. Brown was a District Literacy Coach/Reading Intervention Program Manager for District of Columbia Public schools via the Office of Curriculum and Instruction.
Ms. Brown holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Syracuse University, and Master’s degree from the American University in Journalism and Public Affairs and is certified in International Baccalaureate World Literature; Advanced Placement Language and Composition and Adult Literacy. Ms. Brown is a native Washingtonian.
Join us on Making Sense as we explore
1. What is Really Going on with North Korea? Is this something to be worried about or is it same stuff, different Kim?
2. Then Amina and Femen and the blowup over Tunisia potentially implementing Sharia.
3. We will also talk about how the Verdict on the Sequester is starting to come in with the first monthly jobs report after budget cuts were implemented and there is reason for concern
As always, we will finish with our Trademark weekly hall of fame and shame for those politicians and prominent individuals who made great sense, or shameful nonsense, respectively.

Sarah Ward's educated youth since 1993. She believes that art plays a vital role not only in cognitive development and personal well being, but also in community building and social responsibility.
Located on Chicago’s South Side, the South Chicago Art Center is a non-profit art center for children whose mission is to provide youth with a safe place to participate in quality visual arts programs.
The Art Center is a unique place, a storefront institution where kids use culture as a tool for social exchange. Now in its 10th year of operation, the Art Center runs an after-school visual arts program; an in-school program in local schools; and an urban farm where kids and other community members come together to create beauty, landscaping, planting and growing. At least once a month kids explore the city in the Cultural Field Trips program. The center has an internship program for teens in which they inspire and teach the younger children.

This show and the next show are going to be slightly different in terms of format. There will be no hall of fame and shame today or next week. We’re going to limit our commercial interruptions. Today we are have interviews with the Rude Pundit on the President’s Plan to cut Social Security and Medicare and then we go to the source to talk to Inna Shevchenko about her group Femen who has been conducting topless protests against people, organizations and countries they feel are anti-women.
