As a black woman, mother and grandmother, the words I want to hear from presidential candidates on “public education” are this: How do we innovate for, build true academic progress around and save trapped black students from dysfunctional education systems?

NNOMY Newsletter: November 25, 2019: Mission: Readiness - Citizens or Soldiers The Mission: Readiness program seeks to influence policy makers and the public to adopt measures that the military projects could positively effect the outcomes for two million American youth as they reach the age of high school graduation. The claimed goal is to raise the potential of "youth at risk" to accomplish their general educational requirements, reduce youth obesity, and to create a budget surplus based on offsetting the negative costs of youth who are repeating classes and costs associated to prison. The implied goal is to ensure the continued development of available military forces into the future targeting low-income and youth at risk.

It's textbook adoption time in our district. Can anyone make a LANGUAGE ARTS textbook recommendation? My district is 93% students of color, and I'd like to find a textbook whose authors reflect the student population. Thanks. PS: Do people have experience making "readers" for the students instead of offering a textbook?

By creating this post I am not wanting to cause a heated argument I just wanted to raise awareness and offer suggestions. I am a teacher who leads many workshops for my school board and ETFO on these topics. I have lots of ideas and lesson plans if you need support please PM me.As we have heard yesterday the PC government wants to stop teachers from teaching a so called theory about gender identity. First this is there words, there is no theory around gender identity. We do not choose who we are we are born this way and we express ourselves for who we are. According to the Equity and Inclusive strategy we are told that we have the responsibility to create an inclusive classroom for all. We are told that we need to use inclusive language and have all our students feel safe, respected in our learning environments. There are simple things we can do. - educate yourself, look at websites, google how to be more inclusive in your practice - use inclusive language, try not to refer to only 2 genders when you ask students to line up, individuals as young as 3 begin to identify in their own way, know there are not just 2 genders, asking kids to lline up if you are a girl or a boy, places children to have to choose - if you hear that this is a boy colour or girl colour same with toys use this as a teachable moment and express how can things have gender - in media explore how commercials advertisement view boy culture, girl culture, - read books that express self-identity (Todd Parr) great, can lead to amazing art activities and promote self awareness and self- esteem - Pink Shirt day great opporutnity to not just talk about bullying but talk about identity - begin to use words in your class that desribe different types of genders (transgender, two-spirited, cisgender, google to find out all types of genders)
Dear Radical Teachers, I've written an essay about racism and civility in higher ed. I thought you might find it interesting!
Please consider signing and sharing this international letter of solidarity with students, faculty, and staff organizing against recent decisions by University of Wisconsin-Superior to suspend nearly a third of their academic programs, many in the humanities, social sciences, and arts. The administration argues that these cuts are an effort to make college "simpler" for their largely first generation students. Students and faculty aren't buying it. Support their campaign to get the administration to rescind their decision!
