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.

The Education Of Sonya Sotomayor

“Legislators and education officials have been paying more attention to the dropout problem since learning last year that more than 30 percent of high school students aren’t graduating. A report released in October by the Milton & Rose D. Friedman Foundation said students who drop out of school in a single year cost the state’s taxpayers 9 million annually in lost sales tax revenue and higher Medicaid and prison costs.

Regardless, the way forward for the GOP is clear. First, we need to challenge Democrats on their turf. The 43rd was as sure of a win for the Democrats as any. Yet, our campaign forced Senate Dems to make the 43rd a “firewall” district and spend M. The Democrats can’t spend M in every senate district. We need to remove the ability for them to consolidate their efforts in whatever district they choose. If we start a “fire” in every district, no matter the odds of winning, no district can become a “firewall” district. If this party had placed a quality candidate in every district, Bill Brady would be governor.

B. Make pre-service training longer. The student should observe for one year, teach for one year on his/her own, before allowing the student to graduate. A semester is not sufficient. It does not cover the whole gamut of teaching experience that will engender a love for it or a hatred for it. The student can then decide whether or not teaching is what he/she really wants to do.

These days, parents are afraid to redirect young people in their neighborhood because they do not know their neighbors and their is no sense of family. If you see something, say something. People close their doors and they don’t know the neighbor next door.

That’s right poverty pimps, black high school seniors averaged 1277. Therefore your church scams, sleazy politics, and non-profit (yeah right) organizations are safe for the next half century. But for the rest of us who give a duck, we gotta start Negro education reform somewhere, and i do not think we are going to do it with the U.S. SecEd, Arne Duncan’s Race-to-the-Top game show. Let’s get down, dirty, and practical.

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.

Reading difficulty often leads to school failure. A recently-released study by the Annie E. Casey Foundation found that one in six children who are not reading proficiently in third grade do not graduate from high school on time, a rate four times greater than proficient readers.
