The Pathway to School Reform: Focus on Instruction in High Poverty Schools
According to the authors of a new heralded book called "Restoring Opportunity: The Crisis of Inequality and the Challenge for American Education," the dominant policy strategies for school improvement over the past two decades, has been test-based accountability and the standards movement. They have not succeeded because neither approach has focused on the difficult task of improving instruction in high-poverty schools and providing students with the coordinated learning experiences they need to master critical skills. This segment will focus on successful practices in schools where students of color have made six times the gains of what is deemed acceptable AYP.

In this episode of Independence Nation, Keith A. Pitts, MSE will take a close look at the immigration situation, as pertains to President Oabama's annoucement to take immigration action via executive order. The President is set to make an annoucement on the issue tonight at approximately 8pm. The republican opposition has vow in previous releases to move forward on impeachment if Obama take action without the approval of Congress. The situation will be examine holistically. Will this immigration reform bill benefit or further deteriorate our nation?
Immigration reform is not about Blacks and Latinos. Immigration reform includes people from countries all over the world. Immigration reform is necessary not just because people have crossed into United States illegally or are here undocumented. Immigration reform is necessary because we are a country of immigrants. Immigration reform is necessary because without it employers will continue to exploit workingclass citizens and non-citizens. A pathway to citizenship is for the good of all America. Right now, our broken immigration system benefits only the 1% and those who are the puppets of the 1%. Black unemployment and citizenship for the illegal and the undocumented are not a rivalry issue about immigration. We all immigrated here except for Native Indians and stolen Africans. And every since Africans were freed from slavery, unemployment has been high for African Americans. Self-employment kept African Americans living. Self-employment became part of the black code law that put African Americans at the mercy of slave wages. So there is nothing new in 2014 about Black unemployment. Unemployment for Blacks has always been higher than unemployment for any other groups of Americans. Pre-President Obama, Blacks experienced first fired last hired. Had it not been for family/communitiy way of life over the decades, and creativity that has been handed from one generation to the the next, where would Black families be today?
Highest unemployment is the norm in Black communities and for Black Americans
Poor living conditions reflected in shelter and transportation means
Consumption of foods not for nutrition value but based on value of available funds
High imprisonment for lessor offenses
No protection under the law for hangings and rape at will
What is Immigration Reform in the eyes of the people who have come here legally and to the American People? Is it an act of the President of the United States? Or is it an act and will of the people? Really? Is this Right or Wrong? Who will benifit? Who gets left out? What of those going through the process to legally immigrate to the US? This and much more today at 12pm pst...
