Bernice Bennett welcomes Joanne Abel for a discussion of the Jeanes Teachers and their community organizing work to build Rosenwald Schools.
Joanne Abel, adult programming and humanities librarian at Durham County Library, earned her bachelor of science degree in education from Georgia Southern College, her master of library science from North Carolina Central University, and her master of arts in liberal studies from Duke University. Joanne Abel’s master’s thesis was Persistence and Sacrifice: Durham County's African American Community and Durham's Jeanes Teachers Build Community Schools, 1900-1930.
In 1907 Miss Anna T. Jeanes, a Quaker woman, donated $1,000,000, “for the furthering and fostering of rudimentary education” in small rural Negro schools. Though this fund was incorporated as the Negro Rural School Fund, it was usually referred to as the Jeanes Fund. Rosenwald devised a matching grant program to help build black schools in the South. If a rural black community raised a contribution and the white school board agreed to operate the facility, Rosenwald would contribute cash – usually about one fifth of the total project.
The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program is the largest school based father engagement program in the nation with nearly 4000 schools participating.
It all started with a coffee delivery for the teachers at the start of the school year not long after the Daily Grind opened. I noticed teachers working extremely hard to get the school year started. Decorating the class rooms (at their own expense) and planning…planning…planning. Attempting to make the year the most impactful that they could. What really woke me up was a teacher, with trailer in tow, hand loading cases of text books and dragging them down the hall to her class. I honestly believe that most people have no idea what a teacher goes through to “teach” our kids.
I see teachers working non stop at the Grind (even on the weekends) planning their classes in an attempt to truly help our kids. With budget cuts and teacher layoffs, why do they do what they do? We all know it’s not the paycheck. I’m convinced it’s a sincere desire to really help the kids.
What can we do to show our appreciation for our teachers? After all, a good teacher teaches….A GREAT TEACHER sparks a life long desire to seek knowledge and change the world for the better. One thing I have learned is that showing sincere appreciation for what one does causes them to excel. Truly appreciating a teacher ….makes a GREAT Teacher!
We decided to provide a “healthy lunch” at the lowest possible price, while at the same time reaching out to the community to find partners to reward our teachers for what they do! Our desire is that appreciation from the community would encourage our teachers to be GREAT!

Teachers all over the country are getting ready for students to come back to school next week, or some of may already be in school. The great thing about the beginning of the school year is the opportunity to build new or re-establish relationships with the students.There are 6 basic components for initiating the relationship building process. Building a relationship involves more than these 6 components, but these components are good for beginning and maintaining meaningful relationships with students that motivate them for academic and behavior success

Elders, preachers, and teachers are all responsible for declaring the whole counsel of God. Elders are ultimately charged to spiritually "feed the church" (Acts 20:28), "for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give an account" (Hebrews 13:17). Elders will give an account to the Lord on the Day of Judgment for what they did or failed to do.

Sarah Wiles, a teacher from Charlotte-Mecklenberg Public Schools, wrote these words...
"I am embarrassed to confess that I am a teacher! This was the title of an email sent by a high school science teacher in Mecklenberg County to the North Carolina General Assembly. One state senator had a pretty harsh response to her letter. Join us on the Butterfly Evolution show, Tuesday May 20th as we talk to Sarah Wiles, about why so many teachers like her are fustrated and just plain fed up with lies, legislators, and low pay.

Kyle Olson with EAGnews joins Joe to discuss the Los Angeles teachers' union demanding a 17% salary increase. They say they haven't had an increase in 7 years, however their salaries have increased $47 million?! Confused? Me too. Hopefully Kyle can explain it.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
