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.

Join us as we study the prayers of Paul, Jesus and others in the bible and learn to use their words as a model for your own prayers.

Andrew Murray says " True prayer, that takes hold of God's strength, that availeth much, to which the gates of heaven are really opened wide-who would not cry, 'Oh, for someone to teach me thus to pray'?" He concludes, "Jesus has opened a school, in which He trains His redeemed ones, who specially desire it, to have power in prayer." Prepare to take your prayer life to the next level as we pray the word of God. Your prayer life will be transformed. Tell a friend and join us for the discussion on prayer.
