SORT BY Relevancy
Public schools have been under fire lately, failing our children in issues of safety and social growth, and now our children's education...their primary function is at risk. Younger students in elementary schools are being set up to fail by being mandated to meet requirements of forcibly imposed curriculum designed for fourth graders and above. However, the homeowrk PARENTS see every evening is grade appropriate, and not the same as their classroom work, which the school officials are using to grade your child. The school grading system, combined with the promotion-based-on-standardized test scores only is a ticking time bomb designed to destroy your child's future by explosion. This practice is putting our children's progress levels in lower areas than they truly belong, which on paper, tells the state that your child is not progressing at their true level. Is this a "school in need" ploy to keep funding flowing? Parents, our involvement into school methods of operations needs to increase and become more of a presence. join me tonight at 10:30 pm EST to share your thoughts.

David L. Levy (b. 1936) is a children's rights activist, per the National Partnership for Community Leadership (NPCL) in presenting Levy with the 2011 Charles Ballard Advocacy Award at NPCL's conference in Washington, D.C. In 1985, Levy co-founded The Children's Rights Council in 1992. Levy has authored four books, all on different topics, fiction and non-fiction. Levy is co-director of the Children's Rights Fund for Maryland, an organization advocating joint custody (shared parenting) for children of separation, divorce, and never-married parents. The Fund also provides low cost attorneys for parents in need affected by custody and access (visitation) issues. Levy was appointed by MD Governor Martin O'Malley to the Child Custody Decision-Making Commission in the Fall of 2013. The Commission has held hearings around the state, and is now working on legislative proposals to be presented to the 2015 Maryland legislature. Levy also provides supervised visitations in the Washington, D.C. area and consults on custody related topics in the U.S. and abroad. He also provides job shadowing to help prepare young people for careers and jobs.
Levy attended the University of Florida where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree, and University of Florida Law School from which he received his juris doctorate. Levy directed the Board of Trustees to strengthen families and reduce the trauma of divorce to children through supporting legislation and programs which favor Shared Parenting (joint custody) mediation, liberal access/parenting time, and emotional and financial child support. Levy states that there are millions of parents who want to be involved (in their children's lives), but the road is blocked. A noted author, Mr. Levy has written a myriad of articles on the subject of child custody and divorce mediation which have been published in prominent legal journals as well as noted in general interest publications

As we get ready to say goodbye to the lazy days of summer, it's time to turn our attention to the new school year. According to a new back-to-school survey by Accenture, a majority of parents plan to spend more on their children's back-to-school shopping this year, driven by rising costs or necessity rather than greater spending power.
The survey finds that 67% of parents plan to spend between $100 and $500 and 41 percent plan to spend $500 or more for back-to-school shopping this year. One-third of parents spending more plan to increase their spending by $250 or more. Among the reasons given for the spending increase, 71 percent cited higher prices and 56 percent cited increased school requirements. Startling, nearly one in five parents said they will spend more in order to help their children "keep up with their friends."
It's not hard to blow your family budget when it comes to fulfilling the needs (and wants) of our children – particularly when retailers have eye-catching aisles of back-to-school supplies just waiting to picked up by anxious students. On today’s episode of Your Money, Your Matters, we will discuss the importance of planning and budgeting for back-to-school. We’ll offer tips on how to cut costs, and stay on budget.
Your Money. Your Matters is a weekly show broadcasting every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon Central Time. The program features radio personalities Linda Webb-Mañon and Rick Grady, Cornerstone Credit Union League; Courtney Moran, Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, and Todd Mark, Consumer Credit Counseling Services.

Up here in blue-ish Massachusetts, we're comfortable with compassion and empathy as American traits. Our governor, Deval Patrick, is one of the few saying to treat the influx of Central and South American kids as refugees.
We find it shocking that so many Americans are xenophobic and isolationist. So many want to pull up the immigrant ladder now they, their parents and grandparents have gotten the embrace of the nation.
We'll consider the humanitarian aspects, the economics and of course the politics.
This show is going to be a no holds barred type of show that will speak to the unjustified killling of unarmed innocent babies. Defensesless kids and children who have been boxed in and who are coralled like sitting ducks by the Government of Israel.
Making matters worse the worldwide goverments are all keeping silent and giving quasi pathetic feedback and excuses permitting this carnage to continue.
What have these children done to worldwide governments would close their eyes t them being ravished and exterminated.
To make matters even worse the Israel Government has LIED profusely to the general public in which some media sources have taken to debunking the myths/lies mostley int he UK, because the North American Media's have either tried to black out this massacre or they are one sided in how they deliever the story always putting blame on the Hamas Gov excusing the genocide of an EVIL monster in the Israel Govement Ben Netanyahu who feels marvelous about the carnage he has bestowed on little children, women and their families wihout an ounce of compassion or mercy.
