Revenge of the Lunch Lady - The Huffington Post
"In 2014, now-House Speaker Paul Ryan said that public assistance, including school lunch, offered a “full stomach and an empty soul” because it made kids reliant on government handouts. With the party now in control of Congress and the White House—and with Michelle Obama, the program’s greatest defender, gone—school lunch is as vulnerable as it’s ever been."

Baltimore preparing for protests during next week's hearing in Freddie Gray case - Baltimore Sun
"Scott said it's also important that the police force — including school-based officers — be prepared with the appropriate equipment, such as up-to-date riot gear.

Nurses hold vigil for Laporshia Massey :: News :: Philadelphia City Paper
"... a sixth-grader who died after falling sick at a Philadelphia public school where no nurse was on duty. Laporshia's father and others ask if budget cuts that have sharply reduced staff might have played a role."

"Gov. Tom Corbett and the Republican-controlled state legislature have imposed massive cuts on public education statewide, propelling the long-underfunded School District of Philadelphia into a deep crisis. The district has nearly 3,000 fewer staff members than it did in June."

Our school shooting -
bookmarked for comment from bdmclacken:
"Said the clever minute hand to the more modest hour hand on the clock- "There is no reason why we're here spinning in circles on this dial, me going faster than you, but both of us eventually reaching the same conclusion over and over again"."
"[T]o ask "why?", maybe not even because they expect an answer or much hope to find one from any such magical entity... [is] the last act of futility before acceptance."

Hecklers mar Romney’s visit to inner-city charter school in Philadelphia - The Washington Post
every paragraph leads me to think: "what a tool." so glad he thinks that there's no correlation between class size and student performance. do not vote for Romney, for the sake of your children!

via maggie eighteen (of west philly):
Madaline G. Dunn, 78, who said she has lived here for 50 years and volunteers at the school, said she is “personally offended” that Romney would visit her neighborhood.
“It’s not appreciated here,” she said. “It is absolutely denigrating for him to come in here and speak his garbage.”
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter (D) addressed protesters and the media, quipping that Romney “suddenly somehow found West Philadelphia.”
“It’s nice that he decided this late in his [campaign] to see what a city like Philadelphia is about,” Nutter said. But, he added, “I don’t know that a one-day experience in the heart of West Philadelphia is enough to get you ready to run the United States of America.”
“You want to have an urban experience?” Nutter added. “You want to have a West Philly experience? Then come out here and talk to somebody in West Philly.”

The Failure of 'Failing Schools' Transcript - On The Media
"No Child Left Behind sets up a whole high stakes testing regime and holds schools to various standards, one of which enables politicians, school boards, etc., to declare schools “failing.” But the phrase has been made generic, and the term is, importantly, politicized. Politicians run on the basis of fixing the failing schools."

"El Librotraficante" Tony Diaz Defies Ethnic Studies Book Ban with Caravan to Arizona
JUAN GONZALEZ: On Monday, El Libro-Traficante is set to launch a small caravan to bring carloads of ethnic studies books into Arizona that were banned by public school officials in Tucson after the city suspended its acclaimed Mexican American Studies program due to a state ban on the teaching of ethnic studies. The banned books include Rethinking Columbus: The Next 500 Years, edited by Bill Bigelow and Bob Peterson; Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire; Occupied America: A History of Chicanos by Rodolfo Acuña_; and Chicano: The History of the Mexican Civil Rights Movement by F. Arturo Rosales.
TONY DIAZ: Evidently, he wanted to replace Mexican-American studies with a real, live class on doublespeak, because that’s all doublespeak. Huppenthal knows that Americans would not tolerate a direct ban on literature. So he has actually taken oppression and updated it. At the end of the day, yes, there is actually a law, America, in Arizona, to prohibit courses in high schools. Let that sink in.

Arizona Orders Tucson to End Mexican-American Studies Program -
The debate over the program’s future, Mr. Romero said, proves more than ever the need for the program. “There’s a fierce anti-Latino sentiment in this state,” he said. “These courses are about justice and equity, and what is happening is that the Legislature is trying to narrow the reality of those things.

“Who are the true Americans here — those embracing our inalienable rights or those trying to diminish them?”

The US schools with their own police | World News | the Guardian
"Such cases are not limited to Texas. In one notorious instance in California, a school security officer broke the arm of a girl he was arresting for failing to clear up crumbs after dropping cake in the school canteen. In another incident, University of Florida campus police tasered a student for pressing Senator John Kerry with an awkward question at a debate after he had been told to shut up."

Continuing Education: The Documentary Essay
"The personal essay blends journalism and memoir. It looks beyond the author's life but doesn't lose sight of it. As a form, it's big enough to including war reporting and small enough to analyze daily habits. This course is for students interested in magazine essay writing, for those who wish to tell their own story through fieldwork and to learn techniques to grip readers to the final word. This discussion-based course will walk students through each stage of the creative practice: reading and analyzing exciting examples of genre; finding a topic with a personal angle; conducting research and outlining a story; fine-tuning ideas and editing for structure, with an eye toward publication. By the end, students will have written essays that resound for them personally while appealing to a larger audience. (8 hours)"

Teaching Good Sex -
"During a lesson about recognizing your 'crumble lines' — comments that play to your vulnerability and may make you 'act against your values' — Vernacchio, a self-described 'short, round, hairy guy' who struggles with body-image issues, revealed his own tendency to fall for anybody who compliments his appearance: 'You say you think I’m pretty. I’ll do anything for you.' He was exaggerating a bit for effect, but the poignancy of the self-disclosure wasn’t lost on the class."
