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.

We are expanding the national conversation about equity in education to include private schools. Many private schools offer their students unique and engaging curricula and safe, holistically nurturing environments. Many private schools also serve diverse student populations.
Jeff Sindler, Head of School for a private school in the Washington D.C. area, will discuss how private schools ensure their doors are open to students of all backgrounds and where private schools fit in school reform conversations and efforts.
Host, Allison R. Brown, is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans for schools and helps non-profit organizations to promote equity in education.

Marysville Pilchuck High School shooting
A well-liked freshman "homecoming prince" opened fire inside a high-school cafeteria north of Seattle on Friday, killing one girl and shooting four other students in the head before taking his own life.
Three of the students wounded at Marysville-Pilchuck High School were in "very critical" condition Friday afternoon, said a hospital spokeswoman.
Police said the gunman, identified Friday evening as Jaylen Fryberg, died from a self-inflicted gunshot. It was not clear whether the girl was pronounced dead at the scene.

James Altucher - Be Happy, Make Millions, Live the Dream
Think making millions will bring you happiness?
After selling his company for $15 million, living like a rock star and then spending it frivolously as fast as one can imagine, our next guest hit rock bottom and was contemplating suicide. He’s turned it all around now and his journey is as inspirational as they come.
Even though this might sound like a dream to many of you out there, this interview makes it clear that money is not the key to happiness. #buildgrowenjoy
What is race? Is it only skin deep? Do all men come from Adam? Does race matter? Is it racist to love one's race above all others? Is the Bible universalist? What are the differences between the races - physically, intellectually, morally?
These questions are shunned in an egalitarian society which often puts to shame those who dare to ask them. But these questions are so very crucial - especially in this day and age, when talk of our racial identity is a matter of gagging in the media - especially for caucasians.
In this episode of The Pursuit of Truth, we will dare to take a deep look at racial issues from a scriptural standpoint and a social standpoint.
Join me, as we take on what is probably our most controversial subject so far: RACE MATTERS!
Here is a quote by a very well known historical figure on racial issues in America:
“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”
Who is this historical quote from? If you know it to be from Abraham Lincoln - you are right.
What is Domestic Violence? Who can be a victim of domestic violence? Does society every condone or allow it? When is acceptable? Is it a gender problem? What are the current statistics of domestic violence? Join us as we discuss and question the teachings of domestic violence; we will be challenging certain social constructs of domestic violence and the definitions of ABUSE. With Host (Kevin) Co-Host (Michael) and Radio Forum Moderator (Jamillah) we will be having an open discussion with all our callers on this taboo topic.
