state education leaders squabble over central falls high school teacher firings
Feb. 24: A Rhode Island high school fired all of its teachers, personnel, principals, and administrators Wednesday in hopes of putting its students on the path to better academic performance. nbc's Mike Taibbi reports. The blue-and-white banner exclaiming "anticipation" on the front of Central Falls High School seemed like a cruel joke for an institution so troubled that its leaders decided to fire every teacher by year's end. No more than half of those instructors would be hired back under a federal option that has enraged the state's powerful teachers union, earned criticism from students and drawn praise from US Education Secretary Arne Duncan and some parents. "We all have to go," Hope Evanoff, a French teacher at the high school, told msnbc TV. The mass firings were approved by the school district's board of trustees Tuesday night after talks failed between Superintendent Frances Gallo and the local teachers union over implementing changes, including offering more after-school tutoring and a longer school day. The teachers say they want more pay for the additional work. "If it's only an hour or two, I think teachers can afford to do that," said Robert Rivera, 40, who worries about sending his 13-year-old daughter to the troubled high school next year. "The teachers are overpaid." But not every one in Central Falls was quick to blame the teaching staff for the school's poor academic performance. Only about half its students graduate, and only 7 percent of 11th-graders ...

To support this discussion, Berry introduces the voices of 12 accomplished American teachers who are currently writing a book on the future of teaching. This teachersolutions 2030 team, supported by Metlife Foundation, has identified four emergent realities that they believe will shape education over the next 20 years: * A transformed learning ecology for students and teachers * Differentiated professional pathways * Seamless connections in and out of cyberspace * Teacherpreneurism and the global educational marketplace.

During the 1950s, Mr. Muhammad promoted Min. Malcolm X to the post of National Spokesman, and began to syndicate his weekly newspaper column, "Mr. Muhammad Speaks," in Black newspapers across the country. Membership was increasing when, in 1955, Minister Louis Farrakhan, then Louis Walcott, an entertainer, enrolled in the Nation of Islam after hearing Mr. Muhammad deliver a speech in Chicago. Persecution of the Muslims continued. Members and mosques continued to be attacked by whites in Monroe, La., Los Angeles, Calif., and Flint, Mich., among others. Publicity in the white owned and operated media began to circulate anti-Nation of Islam propaganda on a large scale. By the early 1960s, the Readers Digest magazine described Mr. Muhammad as the most powerful Black man in America. In Washington, DC, Mr. Muhammad delivered his historic Uline Arena address and was afforded presidential treatment, receiving a personal police escort. Subsequently, television commentator Mike Wallace, in conjunction with Louis Lomax, a Black journalist, aired the documentary, "The Hate That Hate Produced," on a local New York City station. The documentary misrepresents the message of the Nation of Islam, calling it a hate teaching. James Baldwin, a famous Black author, released the book, "The Fire Next Time," based largely upon his interview with Mr. Muhammad. At the same time, white political leaders such as Senator Al Gore Sr., began to denounce the Nation of Islam and hold hearings on alleged ...

This is part TWO of a 2 part series. Please watch PART I first in order to understand the entirety of this teaching in its proper BIBLICAL context. This film is copyrighted NO DUPLICATION WITHOUT PERMISSION...It is unlawful to duplicate this film even under FAIR USE - especially if it is used to disparage the film. The law is clear on this matter. ICHTHUS FILMS FURTHER BIBLICAL NOTES: 1. ACTS 2 - Your women shall prophecy - Peter claims that this is a fulfillment of the prophecy fulfillment for THAT moment. They understood that the LAST DAYS had begun with the birth of the church and the giving of the Old Testament. Also if one will read ALL of this section of Acts 2 - it is made clear (TWO TIMES) that only the men were "speaking in tongues." Additionally - ALL OF THE REST of the NT docs., however, are very, very clear that a woman is NOT to be a pastor, teacher, preacher or leader over men. Peter and Paul make this clear. There is not a single Biblical example of a woman "prophet" who was a teacher or leader or pastor over men...not a single one. ALL passages that have to do with the qualifications of Pastors, Elders and Leaders are purposefully and specifically directed toward MEN. There is NOT ONE single Biblical instance of a woman priest, pastor, elder or teacher over men. Even though a woman prophet is mentioned in the NT there is not even an inference that they led churches or had authority in the church over men. It simply is not biblical. The vast majority of ...

The report shows Pope was found with a prescription for Suboxone..it's used to treat addiction to Opiates. They also say an unknown powdery substance and unknown liquid substance were in his possession. Our campuses are alcohol and drug free campuses and thats are expectations for employees and students as well and when any matter like this comes up it certainly deserves a full review. School spokesperson Terry Wilhite says Pope is on paid administrative leave pending the result of this investigation. Wilhite says this is Pope's second year teaching. He also coaches football.
