*** SET up a TV... (big enough for a group to easily watch the films)**
.... and Invite people to come and watch videos....offer refreshments.

OR... use computers -- have several students view films & complete workbooks.

Follow up with discussions... and if you want... sell books, DVDs, etc.

LACK OF FUNDS FOR GOOD

 EDUCATION HURTS EVERYONE !

Why do we need to...

 "OCCUPY EDUCATION" ?

Minority students will likely outnumber white students in the next decade or two, but the failure of the national teacher demographic to keep up with that trend is hurting minority students who tend to benefit from teachers with similar backgrounds.

Minority students make up more than 40 percent of the national public school population, while only 17 percent of the country's teachers are minorities, according to a report released this week by the Center for American Progress.

Using data from the 2008 Schools and Staffing Survey, the most recent data available, researchers found that more than 20 states have gaps of 25 percentage points or more between the diversity of their teachers and students.

California yielded the largest discrepancy of 43 percentage points, with 72 percent minority students compared with 29 percent minority teachers. Nevada and Illinois had the second and third largest gaps, of 41 and 35 percentage points, respectively.

In a second report, the CAP notes that in more than 40 percent of the nation's public schools, there are no minority teachers at all. The dearth of diversity in the teaching force could show that fewer minorities are interested in teaching or that there are fewer minorities qualified to teach.

SPICE UP CLASSES....


TEACH TRUE HISTORY....  LEARN FROM THE PAST !


If Dr. M. L. King were alive today.... or he could come back to visit...he would be asking a lot of challenging questions.

He would probably be baffled and disgusted at the way many youth are so disrespectful to their parents,  teachers, coaches, and community leaders.... and at how street drugs and "gansta life is glorified."

He would probably question the awful gun violence and the long term wars.  He would wonder: Why are we still chasing oil, when we know it has caused so many problems. He would question the amount of money that goes into these wars…and why our Gov’t. continues to subsidize oil, coal, and gas companies…but are not using that money to help the poor….the sick…the schools, etc.

There are so many things that can be done to solve our problems…of unemployment, poverty, pollution, climate change, etc. ….but for some reason our State and Fed. Gov’t. have been holding back.

CLIMATE CHANGE is a very serious threat to everyone. Some big solutions can be done with the stroke of a pen…via the PURCHASES of our Fed. Govt.

** Million$ are spent for the fuel in the jets, helicopters, tanks, jeeps, and other vehicles. HOW ABOUT GOING TO THE GREEN ENERGY and getting off fossil fuels. Pres. Obama already discussed using ALGAE FUELS…and there are other ‘green fuels’…some made from SUGAR CANE. Also, electric vehicles and hybrids can be used…instead of buying more gas-guzzlers.

Install SOLAR PANELS on the Gov’t buildings and the White House…to lower the energy bills. Our Gov’t can begin to reduce the toxic emissions and GO GREEN by spending most of the funds for their vehicles, fuels, supplies, equipment, etc. on that which is non-polluting… or made from recycled materials.

RECYCLING OF TRASH (plastics, bottles, etc.) is another thing that our Gov’t can do …without much effort or red-tape.

ALL OF THESE EFFORTS will create more jobs…boost spending with small businesses…and help clean up the toxic waste and pollution that is wrecking our health and our planet.

Learn BLACK HISTORY...

  Achievement is rooted in good self-esteem...

                         

Rid the mind of thoughts of black inferiority...

 

--From... the Founder of Black History Month --

 

"When you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his "proper place" and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His questionable education makes it necessary."

 

                                                    ~ Quote from Dr. Carter Woodson

 

Although published more than six decades ago, the impact of these poignant words by Dr. Carter G. Woodson in his book:  The Miseducation of the Negro   -- published in 1933--has continued to resonate throughout the minds and hearts of Black people around the globe.

* Known for writing numerous books about the contributions of black Americans into the national spotlight, received a Ph.D at Harvard University

* Founded the Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History in 1915, founded the Journal of Negro History in 1916

 

According to Dr. Woodson, because the mind has been subjected to control, the ideal of inferiority has become a permanent resident, accepting of discrimination to the point where it seems natural.

 

We have the choice to find our "proper place and stay in a state of uncivilized activities," or to perpetuate the visions of our forefathers and achieve the credibility and fair place which each race deserves.

 

 

Many news reports and studies indicate that there is a
big social problem due partly to the crisis in EDUCATION....
 
How does this effect us?  
Should we be alarmed?

Key to success...

 

Education is the key to the future. The future belongs to those who prepare for it today. Learn as much as you can learn...read everything you can..."

~ Quote from Malcolm X  (black activist leader)

Malcolm X (1925 – 1965) was born as Malcolm Little in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1925. His father was a Baptist minister and a strong devotee of the Black leader Marcus Garvey. Garvey’s message, as many readers will be familiar, was that Black people in America would never be able to live in peace and harmony with white Americans and their only hope of salvation was to move as a people back to their roots in Africa. Malcolm’s father died when he was six and his mother was put in a mental home when he was about twelve.

Malcolm went on to become a major figure in the fight against racism in the United States. He became a dynamic spokesman for the Black Muslims. He was feared by many, he was respected by many.

 

He never stopped wanting to learn. Just before his death in 1965, he maintained that one of the things he most regretted in his life was his lack of an academic education. He stated that he would be quite willing to go back to school and continue where he had left off and go on to take a degree.

 

 “I would just like to study. I mean ranging study, because I have a wide-open mind. I’m interested in almost any subject you can mention”.

 

He ran a regular class for young people where he told them---

 

 “We have got to get over the brainwashing we had … get out of your mind what the (white) man put in it Read everything."

"Invest in the human soul. Who knows,
it may be a diamond in the rough.
"

~ Quote by Mary McLeod Bethune --1875 - 1955

  Mary McLeod Bethune, born to former slaves a decade after the end of the Civil War, devoted her life to ensuring the right to education and freedom from discrimination for black Americans.

Bethune believed that through education, blacks could begin to earn a living in a country that still opposed racial equality. Bethune worked  tirelessly until her death and would not rest while there was "a single Negro boy or girl without a chance to prove his worth."

Mary Jane McLeod was born on July 10, 1875, in Mayesville, South Carolina. Fortunate in that she was able to gain a formal education, Bethune had originally hoped to become a missionary in Africa. However, she realized that "Africans in America needed school just as much as Negroes in Africa. . . .

"My life work lay not in Africa but in my own country."

She first taught school in Georgia and later in South Carolina, Florida and Illinois.  

In 1904, Bethune opened the Daytona Normal and Industrial Institute for Negro Girls. The school opened with five girls as students and later accepted boys as well. Tuition was 50 cents a week, but Bethune never refused to educate a child whose parents could not afford the payment. Bethune also opened a high school and a hospital for blacks. 

She is also one of the FOUNDERS of the highly respected Black sorority DELTA SIGMA THETA.

 Bethune remained president of the school for more than 40 years. In 1923, she oversaw the school's merger with the Cookman Institute, thereby forming the Bethune-Cookman College.
