    The Open Minded Teaching of Closed Thought. The Erosion of Public Education.

    in Current Events

    Todays education system is broken. The Government's ever reaching legislation arm is reaching into states rights by offering them money they desparetly need. Common Core is the program of choice, led by Bill Gates and the Gates Foundation. Meanwhile, the rights of students are being crushed in lieu of the golden rule, and the Government is the bank. Meanwhile, to garnish votes, the NEA and unions buddy up to each other to gain control over the system. Doug and Bill go in depth to talk about the differences between today and yesterday for the education system. Now, students are rebelling with rediculious stunts and cries of racism leaving most to say that the inmates are running the asylum. The students dope up (ADHD, ADD, etc) so teachers that are not allowed to discipline any longer, cam control unruley ones. The Unions push rediculious benefits and what they want for their constituants (voters and money=power), the progressives push socialist reforms upon the system (agenda) and the parents? Where the hell are the parents? They have given total control over to teachers because they are so smart and they are out making a "career". The United States spends more per pupil than any other country, yet we rank as one of the lower "educated" countries on Earth. Ronald Reagan said that it only takes one generation of bad to change a country forever. Folks, we are at that time. Join us at 7pm EST Tuesday December 1st.

    Shame and Pride; Pity and Sympathy: No Match for Wholehearted Empathy

    in Health

    I'm forever grateful to David Aspy, EdD, now a mentor from heaven, who taught me empathy and more.  He had directed the National Consortium for Humanizing Education in the 1970's and wrote Kids Don't Learn from People They Don't Like with Flora N. Roebuck, EdD in 1977, among other works.  I was looking for teaching strategies to help resident physicians improve their teaching skills as head of a workgroup for the AMA Resident Physician Section.  

    Al Vastyan, PhD in the Humanities faculty at Penn State-Hershey gave me an article about by Dr. Aspy.  I liked it and called him at Eastern Kentucky.  We talked a good while.  He sent me a packet of books including the one above.  I was hooked.  And excited about others of his writings such as Toward a Technology for Humanizing Education.

    He invited me to Richmond, KY to learn more.  Dave spent two days teaching me about empathy, congruence and genuineness as applied to audio and video-tape analysis of teacher-learner situations.  He showed me the work of Robert Carkhuff, PhD about teaching and helping.  The Art of Helping, The Skills of Teaching:  Interpersonal Skills and the Carkhuff Interpersonal Skills Scale were included.

    Two key pieces of the training were included in the Cognitive Functioning Categories Training Module by Dr.'s Aspy and Roebuck.  Listen in for more.  What about using these strategies for humanizing healthcare?

Light of Truth is a journey to understanding the meaning of love; examining expressions of love and ultimately embracing love itself. The water colors reflect the mood of the emotions evoked through the poetry.
