Special discussion with United Opt Out's co-leaders, Peggy Robertson and Morna McDermott. Why is the impulse to opt chidlren out of standardized tests sweeping the nation at the moment?

FInd out how to opt your child out of the tests safely using federal and state laws that protect your right to do so, and see what alternatives there are to standardized tests that ensure the quality work your child does is also assessed with high quality measures.

Did you know that the Washington Metropolitan area is a buzzin' hub for skateboarders? Dude, I didn't but our awesome guest today is Jimmy Pelletier and he is a skatebarder by trade.
In the past, allowing chidlren with special needs to skateboard seemed "sooo wrong", but actually, they can shred with the best now thanks to the work of Jimmy and his skateboarding buds.
Born on November 20th, 1971 in Washington DC. Skateboarding was introduced to Jimmy by his sister at age 5 in 1976. He learned on a plastic board on the streets of Columbia Pike. Later, his new found obsession with the skateboarding took on different manifestations; as consumer video recording became more accessible, Pelletier began documenting the burgeoning scene in and around the Washington area. In 1987 he discovered Freedom Plaza: Pulaski Park, a "marble block of heaven" as he called it. While still illegal to skate there, the park became the center of an emerging movement that has grown to include parks in and around the Arlington area.
Lets have a rich bold jazzy conversation with Terry Damlos on new ways of educating our youth today. She has been involved in education for twenty years; as a high school counselor, teacher, and a mother of four children who have each had their individual experiences in the public school system. As an educator in the public school system she witnessed an increasing need to teach/guide children in a new way. As the number of "out of the box" children increased Terry experienced the dichotomy of allowing children to learn in individual ways and nurturing all aspects of the child as the public system stressed uniformity and testing.
Terry's children as well as the children she was teaching asked her to create with them a New Education. Tune in to learn more! Please feel free to call in with your questions!

Join us, as we have an insightful and personal conversation with our Ayoka Afolabi, leader, teacher, sista, daughter, and "single mom"
HIV/AIDS Activist Denise Stokes first appeared on the "Rolonda!" TV talk show back in the '90s and reunites with Rolonda 20 years later on Ro's radio talk show, "Sundays with Rolonda." Denise contracted the AIDS virus after being raped at 13 years old. She has been a soldier in the war on HIV/AIDS ever since, spending decades raising awareness, compassion, and direly-needed dollars to help fight this deadly plague. How is Denise doing now? How is America doing now in the struggle to save lives? How far have we really come? What can we do to join this worthy cause. We will hear from Denise, as well as Sir Elton John, who just celebrated his annual AIDS Foundation Oscar Party -- and Ro was there!

Freedom Speaks is a part of the National Network in Action (NNIA), founded by Dr. Jean Kennedy and Dr. Floyd Harris Junior. Author and Activist Anita Wills is the show Host. The show covers the American Just Us System! Our discussions encompass the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC), Mass Incarcaration, Wrongful Convictions, Unjustified Police killings, Gun violence in Inner Cities, and the system of Plea Bargains. It seems like a lot but all of the above mentioned are connected to the Racist Selective System of Just Us, here in America.
This week our show will give voice to Mothers & Families of Murdered Children. Since slavery people of African Descent have been seperated from each other. The Slave Ships were filled with children and young people torn from their families arms in Africa. During Slavery families were split and chidlren sold away from parents. As a Slave, renowned Orator, Frederick Douglass saw his mother about four to five times and always at night. She was a Field Slave and would travel to where he was and lie with him at night. Slavery, seperation, and death were a part of the life of Africans brought to America's Shores. It appears to be a part of our lives in 21st Century America as well.
Little has changed in the 21st Century, for the majority of people of African Descent. The few who do make it, do not bother to reach back and help the masses. In fact here in our own Country we are denied basic Human Rights. Parents of murdered children seldom if ever get Justice, especially if the Police were involved. On this weeks show we share the stories of mothers (and families), whose are seeking justice for their murdered children, whether by police or those who have no respect for their own lives or others.
It looks like the more things change, the more they stay the same.
