The Education Of Sonya Sotomayor

Today, students are bused out of their neighborhoods for various reasons. Their is no sense of community and there is no sense of ownership. Back in the day the neighborhood looked out for everyone and especially the children. If a neighbor saw a neighbor’s child acting inappropriately, they would notify their parents.

In an interview you did for Robin Shreeves, I read that you started The Grass Stain Guru because you are so passionate about the issues of unstructured play, connecting people with nature, and education reform. How does your blog address these issues?

My students grow up in the same town I did, but in very different worlds. Many have never been to the KU Natural History Museum, and some don’t even know it exists. I know their parents love them and want what’s best for them. But it’s hard to take your kids to a museum if you have to work two or three jobs just to feed them.

The Democrats ran a very good “get out the vote effort”. The Democrats are on a completely different level with their GOTV success. In all heavily Democratic precincts, people were handing out flyers just outside the polling place. People were literally in the streets flagging down cars getting people to vote. This is only what we witnessed. Odds are that they had plenty of people knocking on doors on election day driving people to the polls. The coordinated GOTV effort in the 43rd resulted in turnout increasing over 15%! That was what made the margin of victory so great.

If you want your child to grow strong and proud, help them learn the right way to get there. Take the time, and it will be a long time coming. Make the effort. Start now. It could be the best thing you ever did for you and your loved ones.

And, when you want to evaluate Widefield District 3 High school – go look. See how much time kids are engaged doing something they have a genuine interest in doing. Don’t be satisfied with a chemistry lab and a student who is following some recipe in a book in order to answer a question about whether a concoction turns yellow or blue. Look for groups of students building bridges over arroyos to see which bridge works and can bear the most weight (they will be learning trigonometry). Look for students starting and running a business (learning various human interactions, math and organization) to raise money for a Spring field trip to Rome (where yet more new experiences will create interests and more opportunity to learn).

Conversely, schools serving impoverished communities are largely populated by students who lack health care, suffer poor nutrition, and who live in constant worry about where their next meal will come from, or if they will still have a home to eat it in. Enrichment of any kind is virtually nonexistent.

Improving Your Child’s Education

My students grow up in the same town I did, but in very different worlds. Many have never been to the KU Natural History Museum, and some don’t even know it exists. I know their parents love them and want what’s best for them. But it’s hard to take your kids to a museum if you have to work two or three jobs just to feed them.

Second, we need to challenge them on their issues — specifically the unsustainable public sector payroll, pensions, and perks. We can compete on these issues. Democratic policies have chased both union and non-union jobs out of this state for decades. Republicans need to let private sector union workers know that their public sector allies are directly responsible for chasing trade union jobs out of Illinois.

Public schools are just that – public. By law, public schools must teach every student who walks through the door. Public school students are representative of the communities the schools serve.

I recently shadowed a high school sophomore student for the day. In biology this student was passionate and engaged. In math he couldn’t care less. Why? Because he already had a good idea what he wanted to do with his life, and he knew that he didn’t need the math he was learning. To those who say, well what if he needs it later, if he changes his mind, I would say, he will go back and learn it then. Just as any person changing careers would do.

Consider outdoor skills to be part of your child’s healthy and complete upbringing. Learn to paddle a canoe, take a hike, go stargazing, use binoculars to see a bird. Listen to the sounds of the night, use a compass and a GPS.

I believe that the key words here are, “education of children is a fundamental value of the people of the state of Florida”. Again our children and teachers take the hit. It is obvious that we need to revamp our education reform. I believe that if cuts are to be made to education that it should start on the administrative side and not on the backs of our children and teachers. Our teachers have not gotten a pay raise in three years. Many of our teachers are living from paycheck to paycheck.

Now sleepless nights of students and parents before class X exams are not needed. Students will enjoy the studies with semesters for continuous testing of the development of students.

To be fair, at least four of Supreme court judges graduated from public schools. Public schooling works for middle and upper class children (although keep in mind, most of the Court judges graduated from high school a while ago). However, for a person from a poor or minority background, to rise to the top seems to require some private schooling.

Hard research confirms that reading to children may break this cycle and improve their chances of success in life. Reach Out and Read is a national school readiness organization that helps spread this crucial message. The program provides every child 6 months through 5 years old with a new, developmentally-appropriate children’s book to take home and enjoy. Our doctors and nurses speak with parents about the importance of reading aloud to their young children every day.

Lani Guinier, a professor of law at Harvard, was absolutely amazing. Her words were so moving that I had to forward the clip to a buddy of mine who is interested in education reform.

It is an old argument to suggest that poorly performing schools or ineffective teachers are the result of having to deal with children living in poverty.

A. Human resources departments must conduct a thorough assessment of the applicants’ qualification to include college experiences, previous experiences, and interviews of previous supervisors/administrators.

Teaching is a noble profession. There is no other job like it in the world. There are some great teachers who work in great schools that will change the face of education in this country despite the odds.

Is he suggesting that providing the tools to improve one’s professional skill-sets or spending more time with students is alienating by its very nature? Or, is it only alienating when it doesn’t come with more money?

Making class X exams optional will mean that students who want to continue in the same school and do not need a CBSE certificate can choose not to appear for the boards. They will be judged on quarterly internal assessments. But students who want to move to another school after class X need to take the board exam.
