Two weeks ago Sydney Smoot spoke some serious truth to power. http://elitedaily.com/news/world/girl-destroys-standardized-testing-video/983957/ . During this episode of BustED Pencils Jed and Tim get a chance to hear directly from Sydney. What motivates a fourth grader to stand up when so many cower under their bed sheets?
Standardized testing is a reality in the school system. Let's Talk America with Host Shana Thornton takes a close look at the process on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at 7:30 pm EST with leading educator Dr. Sharla Benson-Brown. We will highlight the social impact of testing on students, parents, and educators. Our exclusive featured guest will share resourceful methods to improve academic performance. Psychologist and educator Dr. Gerald L. Durley joins Shana to discuss the recent convictions of teachers in the Atlanta Public Schools for inflating scores on standardized tests. This entire show is timely! Every parent and potential parent will want to tune in for one ground-breaking conversation. We offer real news talk for real people! Join us!

April 6th 4 PM (PST),Dr. Rose will discuss a “Moratorium on Standardized Testing.” He will explain Dr.James Popham’s essay –Testing a Stacked Deck – and how the political uses and emphasis on testing has destroyed teacher morale, labeled millions of capable students as stupid and failures, and kept many mired in the culture of poverty and hopelessness.
Besides being educationally unsound to determine a student, a teacher, a school, or a district’s real achievements based on one measure, this is not necessary. Quoting from George Lucas’ Edutopia and teachers from www.teachers.net,he will focus on programs that prove there’s more to education than limiting the school day to the 3 R’s.
A Teacher of the Year in 1989 for his work with at-risk students, is the author of many educational books and he will offer solutions to the testing monster’s misuse of money and precious education time.
He believes that many of the problems in education are due to minds locked in the status quo of beliefs and behaviors that were effective in the 19th and 20th Centuries, but are inadequate to meet the complex problems of the 21st.
He has spent 50 years challenging what didn’t work and isn’t working now. He claims that people get stuck in mindsets and can’t get out of them because they keep asking the wrong questions that result in solutions that don’t work.
By taking ideas and concepts from many other disciplines besides education, he has been successful in teaching in every grade with every type of student from every type of background and social class. It’s a belief in democratic ideals and their realization by truly focusing on one student at a time (and recognizing his uniqueness and intrinsic value) while developing his class into a safe place where all of them can make improvements in all their abilities.
This will take a paradigm shift in thinking.
Good afternoon church! We are back at it here in boot camp for our Lord. Today we will continue our teaching on being disciples for Jesus Christ. Today we will talk about how God requires a testing of our faith. By doing so, the Lord is able to see those who truly love Him verses those that simply give Him "lip service." We want to offer up more to our Lord than words, we want to be His servant, totally submitted and committed to Christ! Job 23:10
But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
Therefore , as the Holy Spirit says; Today, if you hear His Voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion on the day of testing in the wilderness, Where your fathers tested me, tried me, and saw MY Word for 40 years. Therfore i was provoked with that generation and said , They always go astray in their heart, and they have not know my ways. They will not enter my rest. WATCH OUT,brothers , so that there won't be in any of you.
Generation after generation,our Black families have suffered through slavery, poverty, and drug addictions.
With that being said, there have been instances where Black children have been placed in the system under the umbrella of foster care and then sometimes adoption. What is the system like that has been taken from their family? Does it matter that their are cultural differences between what white people think and what Black people think is different such as the way you discipline your child? What is a CASA or Guardian Ad litem?
We will discuss this matter and discuss how we can be more involved in caring for our own.
The purpose of cosmic evolution is to achieve unity of personality through increasing spirit dominance, volitional response to the teaching and leading of the Thought Adjuster. The survival values of selfhood are transferred from the material mind to the soul by the sincerity, persistence, and steadfastness of your God-seeking decisions.
