Tracking School Children With RFID Tags? It’s All About the Benjamins
- 09.07.12 6:30 AM
Please join The War Report on Public Education host Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. for this week's radio show with our honored guest Dr. Jesse Turner - the Walking Man. Dr. Turner completed a 400 mile walk from CT to DC this Friday. He has been on our show every week since his walk began. We are devoting the entire show to Dr. Turner and his history making walk for the children.
After 400 miles of meeting with the people, Jesse has answered the question: what is wrong with our country? The answer is - "It's the INHUMMANITY - Stupid!" and he will elaborate on Sunday's show.
1. Where is the humanity? He will highlight Jamaal Bowman’s Casa Middle School from the Bronx.
2. Where is the humanity? He will highlight Sergio’s story from Philly.
3. Where is the humanity? He will highlight Jake's Story from Philly.
4. Where is the humanity? He will highlight Ben's Story from Maryland.
"Ring every bell, shout it from every street corner, tell it from every mountaintop - after 400 miles and 40 days, the students, parents and teachers report.
There is no humanity in the policies of No Child Left Behind, Race To The Top, or the Every Child Achieves Act…in other word you will not find humanity in Washington DC, or in any of our nation’s Governor’s Mansions.
The Solution - there is no compromise in this struggle to save our children. The whole system is inhumane, and must be taken down.
No Justice - No Votes!"

Common Core Dilemma - Who Owns Our Schools?
In her new book, bestselling author Mercedes Schneider provides little-known details about the history of the Common Core State Standards. She lifts the veil on how the Common Core was developed, who was present in the back room, the push to copyright it so that test-makers could profit, and the urgency for governors to sign commitments before the standards were even completed. CCSS is publicized as being a state-led, teacher-developed approach guaranteed to ensure that all students are college- and career-ready. By the end of this eye-opening book, readers will come to understand the CCSS and its attendant assessments as something very different -- an education-restricting, profit-garnering opportunity packaged as an education-sounding sales pitch. Common Core Dilemma will appeal to readers across the political spectrum who want to better understand the role of corporations, nonprofits, big donors with strings attached, and the federal government in exercising control in our schools.
