... Education Secretary Arne Duncan called Hurricane Katrina "the best thing that happened to the education system in New Orleans" because it forced the community to take steps to improve low-performing public schools, according to excerpts from a television interview made public Friday.
Yes, he did say it. As reported in The Washington Post, Duncan's interview on "Washington Watch With Roland Martin" was scheduled to air Sunday on TV One.
I guess we need Hurricane Katrina's in every state of the union as far as this color aroused bigot is concerned.
The excerpts quoted an exchange between Duncan and Martin about the effect of the 2005 hurricane on the city's schools.
Martin was quoted as saying: "What's amazing is New Orleans was devastated because of Hurricane Katrina, but because everything was wiped out, in essence, you are building from ground zero to change the dynamics of education in that city."
Duncan was quoted as replying: "It's a fascinating one. I spent a lot of time in New Orleans, and this is a tough thing to say, but let me be really honest. I think the best thing that happened to the education system in New Orleans was Hurricane Katrina. That education system was a disaster, and it took Hurricane Katrina to wake up the community to say that 'we have to do better.' And the progress that they've made in four years since the hurricane is unbelievable. They have a chance to create a phenomenal school district. Long way to go, but that -- that city was not serious about its education. Those children were being desperately underserved prior, and the amount of progress and the amount of reform we've seen in a short amount of time has been absolutely amazing." Let's talk about Barack Obama's Education plans tonight on the slugfest. "If you can handle the truth."
Hear Joan Landes, mental health therapist, share her perspective on the Common Core. It is an eye-awakening and maddening experience to hear that we are not using the correct tools to help children in our Education System. How sad that they who tell children to do their homework are not doing the same on Common Core and therefore is causing tremendous damage to tender children. After 4 years of Common Core Math, Prof Jim Milgram says the damage to children is irretrievable so with that in mind--this is Emergency Time for ALL. The mind of a child is precious in God's eyes. He tells us to think aupon things that are holy, good and pure. The only thing pure about Common core is sadly that it is hogwash. Let's get armed with the truth and throw that stone to our elected officials and tell them to remember His Word to do no harm to His precious children.

After seizing a commanding 3-0 series lead over the young and inexperienced Milwaukee Bucks, the Chicago Bulls find themselves heading back to Milwaukee to play a Game 6 after losing two straight. There are many questions surrounding this Bulls team as they struggle to put away what many believe to be an inferior opponent. Turnovers, poor shooting, and an apparent lack of desire didn't come between the Bulls and 3 early victories in this series, but now they're in trouble. With new developments elsewhere in the Eastern Conference playoffs seemingly opening the door for the Bulls to reach the NBA Finals, will they get their act together and put the Bucks away? The Chicago Blackhawks, meanwhile, managed to finish off the Nashville Predators in six games, and now are preparing to take on the Minnesota Wild in the second round. This is the 3rd straight year these teams will meet in the playoffs. But after sending the Wild home in 2013 and 2014, the Blackhawks face a much bigger challenge this time around. All this plus your phone calls at (347) 327-9183!

SWU – Hope is Not a Plan
We all have heard many times that we must keep “Hope” alive or that we need hope in order to live. The question is what is “Hope” or what does Hope entail for us to enjoy life to its fullest? One can define hope as (His/Her on Personally Evolving). Basically one must take responsibility in having the mindset to personally evolve each day to a higher way of thinking. Being and showing a higher self that has evolved from negative to a positive, needs to be the plan in order to evolve from what is the norm in today’s world. Just having basic hope is not a plan. A plan is an act that will result in either progression or regression. Hope? Why hope for change yet take no “actions or steps” to make that hope a reality.
