Access Islam: US Department of Education
 
07:58
The United States Department of Education has developed an Islamic indoctrination program for public schools called, 'Access Islam.' The lesson plans are written for grades 5 through 12. They include worksheets and videos to help students perform the 5 Pillars of Islam - prayer, fasting, alms giving, pilgrimage to Mecca and the proclamation of Muslim faith. This short video contains excerpted clips taken from the "Access Islam' program which not only teaches children how to perform a Muslim prayer, but asks students such questions as: 'What does a Muslim prayer sound like?' 'What do the movements look like?' and 'What are some of the things Muslims say during prayer?' Children are also expected to memorize verses from the Quran and give the meaning of those verses. Taken as a whole, the U.S. Department of Education's 'Access Islam' program is nothing short of a Sunday school class on Islam.
Teachers' impact on secondary education in Africa
 
03:48
For more than ten years, the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) has invested in secondary teachers internationally through the Teaching Excellence and Achievement (TEA) Program and the International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP). As ECA’s partner in implementing TEA and ILEP, IREX designs professional development fellowships for international teachers in cooperation with U.S. host universities. These customized programs focus on curriculum development, lesson planning, instructional technology, and new teaching methodologies. Over 70 alumni of these programs came together in Uganda in December 2016 to share the learning and skills they have developed since their fellowships, and talk about the impact the program has had on their classrooms, schools, and communities.

Why School Sucks: Old Tricks
 
07:34
Roughly every 10 years, the federal government unveils a "new" plan to increase and further centralize control over the public schools, always in the name of standards. The latest scheme is called COMMON CORE, but this initiative is representative of an agenda that is as old as the Federal Department of Education itself.

ColoradoEd
 
00:31
What is ColoradoEd? ColoradoEd is a family of tuition-free, online public charter schools focused on helping students reach their full potential. We are dedicated to the proposition that all students are created equal and that every student should have the opportunity for a bright future. We know no two students are alike, and each student comes with his or her own abilities, talents, and learning styles, so why should education look the same for all students? We provide educational options and opportunities for students to achieve their full potential based on who the student is -- rather than whom we think they should be. Through an environment that is supportive, encouraging, innovative, and adaptive, we focus on student success and provide hope and innovative educational change for student success -- one student at a time. At ColoradoEd, we believe that education is a partnership with parents in the education of their children, and we value their partnership, input, comments, and suggestions for improvement. We encourage communication with our parents and families to stay current with pertinent information related to school issues. Education, at its core, is not just an intellectual process. True education taps into all areas of a student's being, helping him or her to develop as a whole person. As such, we believe that: The student is at the center of every decision we make. All students have potential to learn and achieve. Parents are partners. Students are responsible for their own learning. Developing and building programs that address the wide spectrum of opportunities and academic abilities of students, leads to student success. We are committed to ensuring that our focus is on student learning rather than teaching so that students are continually engaged in the learning process. We will challenge them to be creative, work independently, and think critically and analytically so they are ready to engage in the world around them. Our school provides student opportunities and options through an adaptive, encouraging, and innovative high-quality learning environment. What Distinguishes ColoradoEd's schools from other online schools? Most traditional schools are logistically unable to provide individualized curriculum truly customized to a student's specific learning needs. In addition, traditional schools typically don't have the resources to teach in a manner and at a pace that is optimal for each individual student. As a result, students who learn quickly may easily become bored, lose interest, or act out. Students who need more time to learn can often feel ashamed or embarrassed if they do not learn as quickly as their peers, resulting in poor performance and low self-esteem. While there are a number of online schools available to students today, only ColoradoEd's schools offer: Over 10 years of experience serving students in Colorado, making it one of the leading full-time, tuition-free online education programs in the state. Rich, engaging, and proven curriculums developed using decades of in-depth research on how students learn. Curriculum options at the middle and high school level that provide for different tracks and formats to meet the needs of your student. Personalized lesson plans optimized to suit your child's own unique learning needs. A team of experienced and highly effective Colorado-licensed teaching professionals. An active and supportive school community, providing an opportunity for parents to collaborate with teachers. The opportunity for parents to actively get involved and engaged in their child's education on a daily basis. A variety of extracurricular activities, including field trips for elementary students and a wide array of clubs for older students. A robust gifted and talented education program for self-motivated students seeking challenging courses, collaborative instruction, and high academic expectations. A comprehensive Special Education program for students with specific needs and requirements. A highly qualified and knowledgeable staff of counselors and advisors to aid secondary with their post-secondary plans. All students who graduate from a ColoradoEd high school program, also receive a diploma that meets or exceeds all state and federal education requirements. Every child has something unique and special inside them. They deserve the opportunity to blossom and achieve their full potential. At ColoradoEd, we understand how vital a quality education is to your child's future, and we want to be your partners with you in your child's education. Call 866-220-2027 or e-mail today, and we will gladly answer your questions, address any concerns, and discuss how we can provide your child the brightest future possible

Inside Story Americas - Canada's indigenous movement gains momentum

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Canada's Idle No More movement began as a small social media campaign - armed with little more than a hashtag and a cause. But it has grown into a large indigenous movement, with protests and ceremonial gatherings held almost daily in many of the country's major cities. The movement is spearheaded by Theresa Spence, the leader of the Attawapiskat, a small native band in northern Ontario. Spence is now 22 days into a hunger strike on Ottawa's Victoria Island just across from the Canadian Parliament. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

Most High School Seniors Aren't Ready For College
 
01:14
Despite rising graduation rates, testing shows most high school seniors aren't prepared for college-level classes. Transcript: Only 37 percent of high school seniors are prepared for college coursework in reading and math, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress. The results of testing by the group show reading scores have essentially stayed the same since 2013, and math scores are down slightly. This news comes at a time when high school graduation rates are rising. In 2014, 82 percent of students graduated on time. But this recent data shows the majority of those students would have to take remedial coursework in college in order to catch up. That means students have to spend money for classes that likely won't count toward their degrees. The data has raised some concerns that a high school diploma isn't as valuable as it once was. However, these results only account for scores in reading and math, and a much broader set of courses is needed to earn a diploma. Also, these scores are based on tests given on a single day, so it could be argued the diploma is a better measure of achievement over time. That doesn't change the fact that reading and math scores are lacking — especially in the lowest-performing groups. Students on the low end of the testing saw scores drop compared to 2013. This video includes images from the U.S. Department of Education and Getty Images. ------------------------------------- Newsy is your source for concise, unbiased video news and analysis covering the top stories from around the world.

Should i go to law school?
 
07:54
http://www.VondranLegal.com This is just a quick video for those who wonder "SHOULD I GO TO LAW SCHOOL". These are just my two cents on a very important question that I think every potential law student should think about before making the MONUMENTAL DECISION to go get your JD, and to pass the bar and become a lawyer. To me, it was and is a lot of hard work, but I loved every minute of it, and now love helping people solve both simple and complex legal problems. This video provides what I think you should like to do if you are thinking of getting into this business. This video with my top six reasons to go to law school and become a lawyer. I think my wife's version was much funnier than mine. She said the top three reasons to become a lawyer are: 1. You think you are smarter than anybody else; 2. You love to argue just for the sake of arguing; 3. You think I am better than everyone. LOL. I hope she was not thinking of me when she came up with these. : ) At any rate, I think law is a FANTASTIC profession (as if you cannot tell by my posting over 450 videos on this channel), but it does require certain basic skills, aptitudes, and interests if you plan on doing this for a good number of years. You will have both rewards and challenges. It's not an easy profession and you have to be tough and smart. To me, I think you have to have a PASSION (or at least a STRONG INTEREST) in solving problems. Individuals and companies come to you with serious problems that need serious answers. And they pay you good money to get it right and to fight for them. You get to meet a lot of great people (from all walks of life and all backgrounds) and with our global economy and diversity in the United States the opportunities are endless. There are hundreds of different legal practice areas and all you need to do is find one that light the fire inside you. Find the problems you want to solve. The best part is, if you do it right you get to choose your practice area (you may need to master social media, but if you are watching my videos you probably "get it." But there is also a BIG economic decision to make that scares most people. No question. But you can do it, and assuming the "dollars and cents of it" works for you, then working to become a lawyer could be just the thing for you. But, don't do it without first performing your own personal due diligence. It is TOO BIG AN UNDERTAKING to take lightly and I always hate the stories where someone says they "went to law school for one year and dropped out." I don't think that is very helpful and no, one year of contracts law does not make you extra marketable. At any rate, I hope you like this video and hopefully it gives you some insights. I try to provide my general two cents whenever someone asks a question so don't be shy. I also encourage anyone thinking about a career in law school to go clerk for a law firm BEFORE you make the law school leap. See if you like it, see if you are any good at it. If you find yourself falling asleep while answering calls from potential clients, researching the law, writing briefs and motions, going to court, drafting contracts, negotiating settlement agreements, attending mediations, etc., then you are probably barking up the wrong tree. But for the people who really want this, and have the talent, you can have a great life in the law. I would say 60% of lawyers I meet like what they do, and the 40% are grumpy and want out (usually with no backup plan at all). For them, it's too bad. For good lawyers, its a great and noble profession and can be rewarding in many ways and gives you a chance to help shape future societies in a socially responsible kind of way. One final note, I created a Podcast called "The law school case that changed my life" (the shipwreck case - R. v. Dudley and Stephens). If you have 10 minutes you might want to give it a listen. https://bit.ly/2Gd4n40 Finally, you should also read my Top 10 Tips for Life Success no matter what career you chose: https://bit.ly/2IeQ6cH Best of luck whatever you chose to do. - Attorney Steve -

Slavery-Math Questions Cause Uproar At Manhattan Public School
 
01:58
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Parents said they are upset and disgusted by a math homework assignment that used scenarios about killing and whipping slaves. A teacher at P.S. 59 in Manhattan asked fourth graders to write creative arithmetic problems. The students were learning about slavery in history class and they came up with slave-related math problems, CBS 2′s Weijia Jiang reported. The teacher, Jan Youn, approved and assigned the questions as homework, Jiang reported. One question asked: In a slave ship, there can be 3,799 slaves. One day, the slaves took over the ship. 1,897 are dead. How many slaves are alive? Another question read: One slave got whipped five times a day. How many times did he get whipped in a month (31 days)? "Essentially what's being asked is for students to play the role of a slave trader," said New York University professor Charlton Mcllwain. Parents of students at the school CBS 2′s Jessica Schneider the lesson was inappropriate and offensive. "I don't understand how teachers aren't aware that would be offensive. Why aren't they aware? Why aren't they in touch? Why aren't they concerned with these issues of minorities in America nowadays?" parent Tim Tate said. "It's a little unnerving, a little unsettling." "In this day and age when everybody is so sensitive, when everybody is so politically correct, it's probably not the best thing to do," one father said. "I don't understand why they would even say that to kids, it's sending the wrong message," another father said. However, one mother said she helped her son with the homework and is defending the teacher. "It's only a math problem," Jenny Mui said. "It is history, and this did happen, so I don't understand why would they take disciplinary action?" The schools chief said he understood what the teacher was trying to do, but did not approve. "I think when it happened, the next step though is something that was unfortunate in the use of slavery in a way that really denigrates what place and the significance of what took place as far as the bad things that happened to people who were slaves, the bad things that happened to people of color," Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott told WCBS 880 reporter Rich Lamb on Friday. The Department of Education released a statement saying the situation was "obviously unacceptable and we will take appropriate disciplinary action" "The chancellor spoke to the principal and she has already taken steps to ensure this does not happen again," the statement read. Principal Adele Schroeter said she was "appalled" by the incident and has ordered sensitivity training for the entire staff. The principal is also planning to meet with families to talk about the worksheet. The school on East 56th Street is 60 percent white and 5 percent African American, 1010 WINS' Eileen Lehpamer reported. The principal now plans to use this incident as the basis for a training program for all the teachers at the elementary school.

Changes for Williamson Co. Students - Eric Alvarez
 
01:35
Williamson County schools may have only been in session half the day Friday, but at Hillsboro Elementary and Middle School, the lessons were already starting."I don t know who's more excited, the students or the teachers," said Kari Miller, principal at Hillsboro.Second-grade teacher Kaitlyn Nicholson is more excited than most, because Friday wasn't her first day of teaching this year...it was her first day of teaching ever."This is what I've wanted to do since I was a little girl," Nicholson said.  "I couldn't picture myself doing anything else.  I used to teach to my teddy bears and my brothers."Fresh out of the University of Alabama's school of education, Nicholson turned down opportunities all over the southeast to come to Williamson county, "I heard about Williamson County from everyone, even my professors at the University of Alabama who were telling me how wonderful Williamson County was," Nicholson said.That growing reputation is partly because the Williamson County School District had the highest TCAP scores in the state last year"We had some excellent scores," said Suzie Cooksey, who teaches 8th-grade language arts.  "We kind of rocked the test.  That was our whole theme for Hillsboro School last year was to rock the test and we did it."While students and teachers expect to pick up exactly where they left off last year, this year has a few key changes that parents need to know about. "This year, Williamson County has the great new BYOT program which is bring your own technology," Cooksey said.For the first time, Williamson County students will be able to bring laptops, iPads, smart phones, and E-readers.  Teachers plan to use them as tools, preparing them for the jobs of the future."I think it's wonderful because our goal as teachers is to make them successful in the future in actual careers," Nicholson said.

Environmental Stewardship at Cary Woods Elementary School - Part 2
 
12:07
Part Two with Eric Reutebuch. Alabama Water Watch (AWW), based at Auburn University, AL, has been working with the Cary Woods Elementary School in environmental stewardship efforts for the past two years. Ms. Debbie Brooks, Principal of the Cary Woods School, applied for a grant under the Saugahatchee Watershed Management Plan, or SWaMP, an ADEM/EPA funded project directed by AWW that promotes environmental efforts to reduce nonpoint source pollution of surface waters. Ms. Brooks has worked closely with Eric Reutebuch and Wendy Seesock, co-coordinators of the SWaMP project. Dr. Bill Deutsch is the project director, and director of the Alabama Water Watch Program, based in Upchurch Hall at Auburn University. With the grant, Cary Woods School was able to implement several environmental projects, including: 1) installation of a rain garden to intercept polluted stormwater runoff from surrounding lawns and parking lots, 2) installation of two large tanks to harvest rainwater from the school's roof for use in outdoor watering of the lawns, shrubs and school garden plots, 3) renovation of the school's nature trail, which leads down to a local stream behind the school, where the students conduct water quality and stream bioassessment exercises (with the aid of AWW personnel and a local citizen volunteer monitoring group, Save Our Saugahatchee), and 4) training Cary Woods teachers in the Exploring Alabama's Living Streams curriculum for use in their science classrooms. This video was produced by Tiger TV (a mass media program at Auburn High School in which students operate a television station) for the Auburn Community Channel (channel 16) by Jason Miller, a student at Auburn High School, under the direction of Elizabeth Antoine,Language Arts Instructor for AP English 11, and Tiger TV, in the Auburn High School English Department.

Fairhope 10th Graders Score High on ACT
 
02:22
FAIRHOPE, Ala. (WPMI) We learned in early January Alabama's 10th graders had scored poorly on math and science tests that measured readiness for college. Only 17 percent of those 10th graders met or exceeded met or exceeded standards in math on the ACT Plan test. Now we've got a closer look at the numbers and it turns out that sophomores at Fairhope High School are some of the highest performing on the test. "This is just simply a measure of what you need to improve on," said Principal Jon Cardwell. Turns out Fairhope High School is in the top 10 highest scoring levels statewide in math, science and english. The school is the only public school in our area on the high scoring list. Cardwell says the highest ranking schools are mostly in very wealthy districts. "One thing you need to look at those schools and what kind of funding those schools posses. They have five time the funding we do and we are up there right there with them. It just shows what a quality education students in Baldwin County are receiving when they come here. It could be Fairhope, Daphne, Robertsdale, Foley," said Cardwell English teacher Anna Hardy says Fairhope does its best to involve students, parents and teachers with standardized testing starting in elementary school. "Because we do mock lessons with them in the lower grades and we also take time to talk to parents and tell them what to expect. So it's not a secret, it's not a surprise. We try to be very open with what they are walking into," said Hardy Also a commitment by the community to fund the local enrichment foundation has helped. Over the last 19 years it's paid to create math and science programs, programs Fairhope kids have grown up with. Even today the foundation is keeping up the momentum. "Like a hands on science lab at J. Larry Newton School and at Fairhope Intermediate school. Here in the high school we fund music and theater programs which of course toward the creativity you need to be great scientist of mathematician," said Cori Yonge with the Fairhope Educational Enrichment Foundation. In Baldwin County the school system has now created a "college and career ready standards team," made up of teachers from across the district. They hold workshops with other teachers to better prepare kids for college.

Minerva Zanca | Racist Principle Discriminating Against Black Teachers
 
02:36
Minerva Zanca - Should be fired immediately. Not only that, Minerva Zanca should not be able to collect on any retirement. She should also be liable in civil court as well. Here's the story from TheRoot.com: Neww York City’s Department of Education is facing a federal lawsuit after the U.S. Department of Justice accused the body of allowing a Queens, N.Y., high school principal to “discriminate against every black teacher,” at the school, a press release from the DOJ notes. The lawsuit claims that the Department of Education allowed Pan American International High School Principal Minerva Zanca and Superintendent Juan Mendez to “purposely target” two untenured black teachers for poor reviews, even before seeing the lessons she was meant to evaluate. Zanca also used racist language while commenting on both teachers, according to the DOJ suit. Zanca allegedly told Assistant Principal Anthony Riccardo that one teacher, Heather Highwater, “looked like a gorilla in a sweater.” She also is accused of asking Riccardo if he had seen teacher John Flanagan’s “big lips quivering” during a meeting. She also allegedly made comments about Highwater’s hair, saying that she could never have “[f–king] nappy hair.” Another black teacher, who was tenured, was not spared from Zanca’s discrimination, the DOJ charges. The lawsuit says that Zanca cut “the highly successful theater program,” that Lisa-Erika James ran, which ultimately meant the cancellation of a student production in the 2012-2013 school year. When Riccardo called out Zanca on her discriminatory actions, Zanca allegedly responded by having him removed from the school by security, according to the lawsuit, and accusing Riccardo of “sabotaging her plan.” Zanca then filed two complaints against Riccardo with the Department of Education’s internal investigatory offices; however, it was determined that the allegations Zanca filed did not warrant charges. #MinervaZanca #racist #BlackLivesMatter

http://www.strangerdangerprogram.com 800 557-9527 24 hour voice mail "Proven Techniques Keep Your Children Safe From Stranger Dangers -- Guaranteed!" It seems amazing that you can keep children safe from Stranger Dangers in only 40 minutes with 4 Proven Steps! But it's true and I Guarantee Results. Children right in your own community, at your school, are in danger of being lured and tricked everyday by sexual predators, into situations that could turn deadly for the child. For nearly forty years Rick Allen, B. Msc., has been entertaining and educating young people with talents of illusion and comedy. traveling throughout the United States and Canada, having been endorsed by leading schools, media and organizations as being reliable, professional and creative This may be the most valuable program the children will experience this year. Here's a Description of the Stranger Danger program: As concerned educators, we all want the same thing, we want our children to be safe, both in and out of school, don't we? The alarming fact is that, every forty seconds, another child becomes lost or missing in America, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. A missing child becomes a gut wrenching nightmare beyond imagination for parents, schools and communities large and small. This Could Be The Most Important Assembly Your School Will Have This Year! Local police and sheriff efforts are great, but children learn avoidance skills best when exposed to different learning experiences. Don't they? The key points of the program are demonstrated with illusions, roll play, comedy. The Stranger Danger Awareness Program is a fun and memorable interactive educational program that teaches children, Pre-K through sixth grade how to be "street smart" about strangers and internet safety it is adapted from guidelines provided by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation. 100% guarantee... The children will be able to recite back the 4 key points of the message and what they mean or you owe nothing. The program is embraced by leading educators and media, as an effective way to reach children with the important message of stranger dangers without causing undue fear. The plain fact is, this is an effective program! Community leaders and the media would not be endorsing the Stranger Danger Awareness Program since started in 1989, if it didn't work! This program works when others don't! It's not just a silly magic show passed off as an educational program; the magic is simply to candy coat the important message. "Citizens4Change members, Kathy & Rick Beam and Lisa Francis met with Ms. Susie Riegle to present our research on the Stranger Danger program. Greenville Schools accepted the Stranger Danger program to be presented to all children K-6. I attended the East School program today and was so impressed with Mr. Allen and his ability to incorporate fun into a very serious matter for our kids. Mr. Allen conveyed to the children about stranger danger and by using interaction with the kids, he was instilling confidence, rather than fear. I further felt that he equipped the children with the knowledge and strategies they needed to protect themselves in dangerous situations. Thank you Ms. Riegle and Greenville Schools for bringing this program to the children and our hope is that you will continue with this for many years to come. JOB WELL DONE!" A complete 40 minute program. Adaptable to your assembly space. Completely self-contained. We provide our own professional sound system, suitable for groups up to 500. You get a master copy of the handout, simply copy as many as you need for the children to take home and the teachers to use after the program. You can arrange (time permitting) for area media appearances such as TV or radio program along with newspaper interviews about the program.

Effort to Fully Fund Public Education in Mississippi Gaining Ground
 
02:06
By Mike Lacy | WLOX | March 11, 2015 OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - The debate to fully fund education in Mississippi has been going on for generations, but the newest grass roots effort has a different tool to get its message across: social media. If the newest "Fed Up with 50" effort to fully fund state education sounds familiar, it is. The protest to protect Singing River Health Systems pension plan started out with just a Facebook page. In just a few months, it started getting high level attention. That's what Julia Weaver wants. But she also wants results. “We're not asking for new money,” she said. “We're not asking for new taxes. We know the money is there. The Mississippi Adequate Education Program is law and we want the state legislature to fund education.” The Mississippi Legislature has funded the MAEP only two times since it was established in 1997. The last time was in 2008. Gov. Phil Bryant said the state has agreed to raise public education funding to up to $110 million. "We will never be able to fully fund what people was an arbitrary formula from the 1990s. But back where I come from, $110 million is a lot of money, and it is an increase." Weaver said that's not good enough. "We are 50th year after year after year, and a lot of people have said they're going to just throw up their hands. "You can't fix public education.' We're going to go in a different direction," Bryant said. "Do you know who has solved this problem better than we have? It's Alabama. It's Arkansas. It's Louisiana. It's Oklahoma. It's New Mexico. It's Washington D.C." Lisa Pomeroy has a daughter in the first grade. "She's learning to read, and class size is a huge issue," she said. "How can you get individual attention as a child if your class size is so large? If your schools can't afford assistant teachers?" And just like the seniors with Singing River Health System, Weaver and her group don't plan to give up. "There's dead and there's dead dead. So until the end of the session, some of these good ideas for public education are not dead dead." Pomeroy added, "I won't be quiet. I will not be quiet until schools are funded."

Education reform, conservative style
 
02:02
Historically, conservatives have ceded the work of education reform to progressives. But, as Congress begins to consider proposals to reauthorize NCLB/No Child Left Behind (the latest iteration of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act), education is ripe for conservatives to offer an alternative. Rather than talking about what conservatives are against, conservatives should be talking about what they are for. By identifying what the federal government has the potential to do right, we can begin to sketch a principled, coherent approach to education, one which allows Washington to promote the kind of great schooling that America's kids need.
