Today's guests, Drs. Angel Harris and Keith Robinson will discuss their book "The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education." Many of their research findings turn our traditional beliefs about a child's school achievement and its relationship to parental involvement with school on its head.
Angel Harris is a Professor of Sociology at Duke University. His research interests include social inequality, policy, and education. My work focuses on the social psychological determinants of the racial achievement gap. Specifically, I examine the factors that contribute to differences in academic investment among African Americans, Latino/as, Asian Americans, and Whites. I also study the impact that adolescents' perceptions of opportunities for upward socio-economic mobility have for their academic investment, and the long-term effects of youths' occupational aspirations both within the United States and Europe.
Keith Robinson is An Assistant Professor of Sociology at The University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on the determinants and implications of test score (achievement) inequality in K-12 education. Dr. Robinson's work highlights the extent to which family and school factors contribute to achievement inequality, and suggests ways to equalize these differences. Much can be learned by examining the various stages of K-12 education since the determinants of achievement disparities change as children progress through schooling.
In a groundbreaking new study - The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education, Dr. Angel Harris and Dr. Keith Robinson have discovered that parental involvement, at least the way it is currently envisioned, doesn't quite work the way we think it does to ensure students' academic success.
They will talk to us about their research, what it means for the future of parent engagement, what schools should focus on instead, and what parents can and should do to support their children.

It took a matter of ten minutes to turn my failing daughter in math, spelling and reading into someone who now cannot only do the math assigned but has advanced to geometry. She now craves reading and was recently excited about reading the dictionary. This from a child whom we were told just a few weeks ago was reading at a lower level than others her age. Ten minutes of time turned an inward child into a confident child and now makes the time we spend together much more enjoyable than I had ever thought.

*Children 14 and younger are less likely than older teens to use contraceptives and take longer to begin using them.
*No state explicity requires parental consent or notification for contraceptives.
*Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia explicitly allow minors to obtain contraceptive services without parental consent.
Data gathered from the Guttmacher Institute and CBS News
Generation after generation,our Black families have suffered through slavery, poverty, and drug addictions.
With that being said, there have been instances where Black children have been placed in the system under the umbrella of foster care and then sometimes adoption. What is the system like that has been taken from their family? Does it matter that their are cultural differences between what white people think and what Black people think is different such as the way you discipline your child? What is a CASA or Guardian Ad litem?
We will discuss this matter and discuss how we can be more involved in caring for our own.

SALLIE O. ELKORDY FOR MAYOR,
January started out as “Cervical Cancer Awareness Month” per Resolution 531 put forth by the NYC City Council last year (for the purpose of promoting the HPV Vaccine according to the HuffPost). In 2015 I warned the City Council about the new Gardasil 9; the dangers of the regular version of Gardasil and even secured Norma Erickson of Sanevax.org (the authoritative source) to advise them. Although not ignored, the warning presented was. Two resolutions passed: the one I mentioned and another, in support of a State level bill for the administration of STD vaccines (including the HPV vaccine) without parental consent. This bill may be voted on in 2016 in NY State, as well as another State bill to add the HPV vaccine to the schedule in order for children to attend school.
It seemed clear that PUSHBACK was necessary, so I set out to interview Gardasil Victims and their families to educate our legislators and as a warning to parents and young women (and now men) being offered this vaccine. Freda Birrell, also of Sanevax.org provided the introductions that readily facilitated this effort. The multiple interviews below are the result of these introductions and the monthly stand I take at City Hall to bring attention to vaccine injury and death was made relevant for January through their inclusion:

on Home Schooling & CPS courts and much more.
Do you want to avoid legal battles with social services and CPS and school your kids at home?
Do you have problems with the standards of education being provided by the local schools in your area or are they wrongly labelling your child with behavioural problems such as ADHD to claim higher administration costs for wrongly prescribed drugs such as ritalin?
Are you worried about trafficking of school children into the social services care system and childrens' homes for possible prostitution and sexual abuse?
Are your child's teachers and social services telling lies against you and your child and you want nothing to do with them?
Are you worried and feel your child would do better being schooled at home?
Many parents don't realise that it is perfectly legal to deregister their children and have no further involvement with schools and social services. They can provide education that they consider to be appropriate.
Do you want to sack the solicitors and judges then come on kevins show.
The Government details the procedures for filling out the paperwork to provide schooling at home
