Tune in and call or email with your questions/comments.
I have worked within the Educational School System for over 18 years. From teaching Middle School, Principal at the Elementary level and Professor at 2 major Universities in Ga......I will have answers for you.
Louisiana public school system is failing. In central Louisiana where I reside;there is a policy now to rate schools and assign grades- there are more than a dozen "failing" F-schools where students have a poor record for passing standarized tests called "iLEAP" and "LEAP' - acronym for "Louisiana Educational Assessment Program" given to students in grades 4 and 8 testing math, english language arts, science and social studies.The Lousiana LEAP exam is based on Louisiana state standards which define what students should be learning each year.
May 20, 2013, I attended a middle school ceremony where 78 eighth grade students were being recognized for "achievements" during the academic year. I learned that only seven (7) students had passed the LEAP test and that 71 students would have to attend summer school and retest to determine IF they would move on to the 9th grade. I listened and watched students coming forward to receive medallions and awards for most "improved" and GPA above 3.5 and I was baffled.
How could a student maintain a grade point average in the B+ range and not be able to pass a state standarized test designed for that grade level? No one has been able to explain that to me. I was further confused about why 71 students who had not met the criteria for "graduating" from the 8th grade were being "recognized".
Has America slumped so low that we reward students for just showing up? There seemed to be no requirement for students to walk across a stage and receive a piece of paper and hear parents and loved ones yell out approval.
I asked openly, "how many times can a Non-graduating 8th grader participate in a recognition ceremony at the end of an academic year. No one knew the answer, but one person volunteered a response saying, "You have to leave public school when you turn 21".
RFPs (Request for Proposals) are something you'll definitely have to deal with if you sell to schools, and some RFPs are great opportunities. But, you may have discovered that spending time to react to RFPs can kill your productivity unless you have a policy and set of procedures in place. How can you better manage RFPs from school districts and increase your odds of winning the deals you decide to pursue? Listen to sage advice fro two veterans of K-12 RFP wars -- host Glen McCandless and his special guest, Farimah Schuerman of Academic Business Advisors. They'll spend 15 minutes to unpack this popular topic. And be sure to read the companion article on SellingToSchools.com. Don't miss these great resources!
The state of the education system, whether it's public or charter, is in serious need of help. For this reason we are replaying this show again to raise awareness of a few of the issues going on in charter schools. Kicking off the show is "Style Avenue" with Arielle. She will get you up to date on what's going on in the fashion world whether it's on the runway, at an event or on the streets. Then tune in as Mr. Yancey discusses "What's going on in charter schools?". Regardless of whether it's public, private or charter schools, our students deserve a nurturing, stable learning environment. Unfortunately, that is not the case in some schools that are suppose to be an alternative to public schools. What are your thoughts about this?

on their new book and a network update
This week on The Shift we're talking with teen novelist Nancy Rue. The issue she addresses in her latest novel, So Not Okay, is bullying in schools. Her novel is written for teenagers to see through the viewpoint of a child being bullied. We have all been there when we were growing up, but what we assumed at one point in our lives to be harmless actually torments young kids so much that they end their lives. Many people don't realize the severity of the situation and should become more aware of how their children behave towards others.
We'll discuss the issue of human kindness, how we can stop bullying and how to deal with bullying. Help us push this movement forward and stop this once and for all. Call in and ask your questions. We're also giving away a couple copies of the book to share with your teen. Follow us on Twitter @ShiftWithSkip or on Facebook here. #bullying #sonotokay
