Why America Needs A New Approach To School Desegregation 20.5.2018 Crooks Liars

Keep that statistic in mind as the nation marks the 64th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education – the 1954 Supreme Court decision that famously mandated the desegregation of U.S. public ...

Morally Bankrupt Howard Safir Blames Common Core For Santa Fe HS Shooting 19.5.2018 Crooks Liars
Just when we thought there was nothing left to blame school shootings on, Fox News scrapes the bottom of the sewage tank with a spatula to find someone completely unqualified and half-decomposed to blame something ridiculous. Rather than look at real reasons why shootings keep happening, (starts with "G," ends with "U-N-S,") former NYC Police Commissioner Howard Safir delves into his vast educational background. According to him, here is why tragedy occurred again, this time today at Santa Fe High School near Houston, TX. SAFIR:...this is one of those things where we have to look at every single aspect. You know, something I don't think anybody has mentioned, and it's probably not gonna be popular, but we have to look at this Common Core curriculum, which takes emotionally disturbed kids and learning disabled kids and mainstreams them into the general population of students, where they really don't get the kind of attention they need." I know not where to begin. Nobody has mentioned it, Howie, because it ...

West Virginia Teachers Won Their Strike. Now, They’re Rebuilding the Local Economy. 7.5.2018 American Prospect
This article appears in the Spring 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  It’s early January, but the high tunnel at Mount View High School in McDowell County, West Virginia, is sweltering. High tunnels are inexpensive greenhouses, unheated but covered in plastic, that make it easier for farmers to extend the growing season for their fruits and vegetables. In this case, it’s strawberries: About 300 strawberry plants, donated by a McDowell farmer, are growing in raised beds. The students at Mount View chose to plant the strawberries, says Jenny Totten, who works with the high school students as the McDowell County Community Development Coordinator at the West Virginia Community Development Hub. The students don’t get to make a lot of their own decisions, she says. So she lets them choose what they want to do, whether it’s the work that they’ll do in the high tunnel or what they’ll make with the harvested plants. The kids don’t just learn gardening and cultivating, but also how to ...
