Education reporter Cherise M. Newsome joins Pilot Radio to discuss a federal investigation that found Norfolk Public Schools negligent in handling complaints in middle and high schools about sexual harassment and treatment of students with disabilities. Newsome was first to break the story about the investigation, which concluded earlier this year. School leaders heard about the results in May, but not the general public. The Pilot published her story Sept. 27 after Newsome obtained a copy of the report from the U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights. On Sunday, The Pilot is scheduled to publish Newsome’s exclusive interview with the family that spurred the investigation.
Mental health in public schools is a major concern. According to HHS, the figures usually indicated for diagnosable mental disorders suggest that between 12% and 22% of all youngsters under age 18 are in need of services for mental, emotional, or behavioral problems. The Center for Mental Health in Schools reports that the reality for many large urban schools is that well over 50% of their students manifest significant learning, behavior, and emotional problems. For a large proportion of these youngsters, the problems are rooted in the restricted opportunities and difficult living conditions associated with poverty.

As we celebrate the 60 year anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education it appears that public schools are still segregated. 60 years ago laws were passed to de-segregate public schools based on race and stll today many public schools remain segregated, but not because of race. The new underlying factor of public school segregation is economics. Many segregated public schools lack high quality resources (i.e books, computers, highly educated teachers, etc.) because of economics. Can a law fix this or is there something else we can do? Tune in to discuss how we can help address this problem.
Teresa Weatherall Neal has worked for GRPS for 35 years. She started out as a student worker as a teenager. She has worked in numerous capacities throughout the district including as an Administrative Assistant, Coordinator of Compliance, and Co-Director of Community and Student Service. Just prior to her appointment to Superintendent, she worked as the Assistant Superintendent of Community and Student Affairs for seven years.
She has a love for both the students of Grand Rapids and the city itself. She, herself, is a product of Grand Rapids. She comes from a large family with deep roots in the City. She is proud of her education in GRPS and will brag to anyone that she attended South Middle School and graduated from Creston High School.
In her State of the Schools Address, Superintendent Neal made a statement that seemed to resonate with many people in the District and in the community. She stated, “These are our students, our schools, and this is our City.” She truly believes this and is working, and has charged her staff to work, with that statement in mind
LanceScurv turns it upwith content that the Mainstream Media would never showcase and the powers that be will never approve to be shared.
In vowing to focusing on the life changing imformation in a platform that is littered with grown people who waste their precious time arguing, speaking foolishness and indulging in buffoonery, I know for sure that this type of content will run the frauds away as well as those who can't stand to see their bubble of illusion broken.
But in growing you must understand that you will walk alone and in doing so move into your God given destiny and positioning.
That being said, listen in to this information shared in the powerful words of Dr. Umar. A. Muhammad at The Black and Nobel Bookstore located in Philadelphia at 1409 W. Erie Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19140

Your host here at SevDeadSerious is particularily miffed at the public schools in the rapidly degenerating city of Philadelphia, where the education of our most valuable resource has been hijacked by the political process by an unscrupulous state controlled School Reform Commission (SRC) that as a state controlled entity, the Douche Bag of the week candidate Tom Corbett that without a total turnaround is destined to be the first 1-term governor of the state since the early 70's and what better way to fire up your base of pathetic GOP'ers from Pennsyltucky (yes, Pennsyltucky) reason to rejoice as the predominately minority serving public schools can continue to erode. Its not the paying for a portion of their benefits but to invoke the measures without public hearings or notifying the Teacher's Union of their intent is typical GOP underhanded policy. All so Corbett could increase his polling number...now that's a Douche Bag!
