Join Professor (“Apple”) Applewhite in a discussion of the issues surrounding adult age students with physical, mental, and learning disabilities who complete educational programs, during or after incarceration, with the hope and faith that a J-O-B is attainable. However, the fact is they face an even harsher reality than our 2009 high school and college graduates in these challenging economic times. We invite students and employers to discuss how they address “the BOXES” on employment and scholarship applications that ask about their criminal histories. White Apple Institute, sponsor of the Student2Teacher2Student© radio broadcast, hopes to instill faith in our students, teachers, parents, employers, and all interested persons, as we speak about ways to minimize recidivism and prepare adult learners in this population to achieve practical and realistic pathways. Our radio show is designed to stimulate conversations between “adult learners with disabilities or various at-risk issues” and “teachers, counselors, and employers” to improve success in the classroom and within the workplace. We encourage listeners to acknowledge that although “life-long learning” is critical for “life-long success” we cannot ignore that most students engage in postsecondary education to improve their future “ECONOMIC” status.
