    Discipline in the Classroom - What We Can Learn from the SC School Incident

    in Education

    Major media outlets have been dominated by the incident captured on cell phone videos at Spring Valley High School where a student was forcibly removed from a classroom.  Views on this incident has placed civil rights advocates, school and district leaders, student advocates, school officers and education experts at odds.  We have confirmed Dr. Jared Scherz and Mr. Curt Lavarello to participate with us on a discussion about the SC school incident and what we might learn from it.


    Dr. Jared Scherz is the founder of TeacherCoach (www.teachercoach.com), an online platform that integrates personal growth with professional development.  As a clinical psychologist, author, and educational consultant, working with educators for over twenty five years, Dr. Scherz believes in the paradoxical theory of change, in that a greater understanding of what keeps a person or system stuck is needed before sustainable change is possible.  His work includes a number of issues including school violence prevention, the organizational health of schools, and the personal wellness of educators.


    We also have Mr. Curt Lavarello - Executive Director of School Safety Advocacy Council. Curt Lavarello served as a 25+ year Law Enforcement Executive in South Florida. During his tenure as a police officer, Curt has held assignments on road patrol, detective bureau, gang task force unit, traffic division and 18 years as a school resource officer (SRO) and Patrol and SRO Supervisor. 


    This will be an open, but guided forum.  Listeners are encouraged to phone in to express your opinions and suggestions.

    The Relationship Between Kindergarten Social Competence and Future Wellness

    in Education

    Join us on October 14 (2pm EST), when our guest, Dr. Damon Jones, discusses the findings of a recently published study in the American Journal of Public Health. This study funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation suggests that kindergarten students who are more inclined to exhibit “social competence” traits—such sharing, cooperating, or helping other kids—may be more likely to attain higher education and well-paying jobs. 


    Damon Jones, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Associate at Penn State’s Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center, serving as a program evaluator and methodologist for several family and youth behavioral interventions and prevention programs.  A focus of his research has been toward understanding the public costs associated with behavior disorders, which has included authoring several publications on the potential economic value of effective efforts to improve developmental outcomes in children and youth.   He has several years of experience with cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit assessments as well as overseeing several project resource evaluations.  His work has also included investigations of health and mental health service needs for at risk populations, involving design of data collection streams for collecting detailed health services use information.  He received his Ph.D. in Quantitative Methods from Vanderbilt University in 2002.


    This promises to be an amazing discussion.  Listen in and participate!  October 14 - 2:00pm EST.
