Afro-Latinos and The Power of And - The Jose Vilson | The Jose Vilson:

Afro-Latinos and The Power of And

Today, I had a conversation with Amilcar Priestly of the Proyecto Afro-Latin@ about Afro-Latino identity and what it meant for me as an educator and writer. As we started talking, I came to a harsh realization about my background: I tried too hard to belong.
I taught myself how to read in Spanish, and probably should have worked harder at writing and speaking Spanish, too. I also found ways to incorporate merengue and bachata into my music playlist, and inquired about every single artist that blasted out of my stepfather’s stereo. I ate all the foods, familiarized myself with the latest “Dominican” terms and even added a few extra steps into my dancing.
While a part of me thought I was just trying to have fun and show my pride for my

All Things Education: Shortages or not, TFA is not the way for VA

Shortages or not, TFA is not the way for VA


Nice Watch!

Just a quick TFA post.

Today as I was watching & tweeting Governor McDonnell's K-12 Education Reform Summit, I got into some conversations with a TFA advocate, W. Aaron French and Eva Colen who is the Managing Director, Community Engagement at Teach for America--she is based in Richmond.

I'm not going to repeat what I've already written, so if you want to see my previous thoughts on TFA, please read hereand here. As TFA pertains to Virginia and the legislation that just passed, I wrote about that here:
You probably already know what I think. I have written about TFA before. It's my most popular piece. 
The only thing new I have to say is: Why does Virginia need TFA? There are budget and teaching positions being cut across the state and I hear it's hard for our college graduates to get teaching positions. Where is the evidence that there's a teacher shortage anywhere in Virginia? And if there is one, why don't we have a Teach for Virginia instead? Teachers who are being laid off could be given incentives to go and teach in hard to staff areas. Top students at Virginia colleges and universities, especially ones seeking a teacher's license, could also be granted incentives to start their careers in these supposedly "hard to staff" places. 
Otherwise, it doesn't seem like anyone's fighting it, so meh.
Aaron and Eva both claimed that in fact there was a shortage and cited this page from a VADOE website. Now, I don't know if that means these will likely filled with subs or worse-qualified candidates than TFA corps members. I do know

"Boobies" bracelets: Still Ok for kids to wear at school




It’s a bit hard to believe this matter went all the way to a federal appeals court, but it did. More than two years ago, I wrote on the blog about the national tussle over "boobies" bracelets in schools. Schools were banning the breast cancer awareness bracelets, which announce "I (heart) boobies."
In Pennsylvania, the issue ended up in court in 2011 where a federal judge issued a preliminary ruling that the bracelets are not lewd or vulgar and can't be banned by schools.
Apparently, the case didn’t end there. It went to a federal appeals court, which ruled today that the 2011 decisiion was correct.
When these bracelets first appeared, I thought they were well meaning. But I also felt they targeted a problematic demographic -- adolescents likely to overreact to the word "boobies."
Clearly, the bracelets' purpose to bring attention to breast cancer succeeded but I still think the "boobies" portion represents a potential distraction in school. But the courts clearly disagree with me and with the many schools around the country that have banned the bracelets.
