Marcelo M. Suarez-Orozco : Nation's Largest Workforce Provider Under Siege
Huffington Post - over 4 years
American schools are facing unprecedented challenges none more important than educating ever more diverse cohorts of students to greater levels of competency at a time when economies and societies are more integrated and vulnerable to global upheavals. New demographic data tell a powerful story. For the first time in U.S. history the children of Latinos and Asians account for nearly all growth in the child population. The data show that between 2000 and 2010 the number of Latino and Asian children skyrocketed by more than 5.5 million while the number of white American (non-Hispanic) babies declined by over four million. Immigrant-origin children will account for one in three children under the age of 18 by 2020. As of 2011, 23.7 percent of school-age children in the U.S. were the children of immigrants with the majority (77%) second-generation citizen children and the rest (23%) foreign-born. Approximately 10.7% of all public school students are classified as English Language ...

Parents Choose New Charter Operator In First Ever 'Parent Trigger'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
This piece comes to us courtesy of The Hechinger Report's HechingerEd blog. A small group of parents in Adelanto, Calif., became the first in the nation Thursday to choose a charter operator to take over their neighborhood school through the controversial "parent trigger" law. On a 50 to 3 vote, parents who voted chose LaVerne Elementary Preparatory Academy as the charter operator to take over the embattled Desert Trails Elementary School, which has been at the center of a bitter battle for the past nine months. California's Parent Empowerment Act of 2010, known as the parent trigger law, enables parents representing more than 50 percent of students to sign a petition to force major reforms on a low-performing school, from firing the principal and half the staff to a charter conversion. At Desert Trails, more than 600 students and 286 parents signed a petition last year seeking a charter conversion. Accounting for parents who had since left the school, 180 were eli ...

The Male Rosa Parks?
Forward - over 4 years
When thinking about gender segregation, most of us think of discrimination against women, as when women are forced to go to the back of busses or denied seats if there is no room left in their section. Recently, however, Israeli man Assaf Musman found himself tossed out of a shared van shuttle taxi, called a sherut, after one stop because Haredi women did not want to sit next to a man despite the fact that there was room for him in the back. Musman, a spokesman for the religious pluralism Israel advocacy organization Hiddush, said, on the group’s website, “I still haven’t recovered from the astonishment. [The] brutal behavior of removing a person from a public transport vehicle because of his sex befits a Third World country.” The sherut drivers also object to this new de facto norm, according to Hiddush, because it forces them to drive on their routes with partially empty vans.

Sac City Unified reinstates 80 percent of sports budget
The Sacramento Bee - over 4 years
The Sacramento City Unified School District board has voted to reinstate approximately 80 percent of the sports budget for the coming school year. District spokesman Gabe Ross said that high school athletic directors will get together "to talk about what the structure will look like with the reductions, but the program as a whole will continue." Board members voted earlier this year to eliminate all funding for sports to help close a budget shortfall of $28 million the district says could grow to $43 million if a statewide state tax measure fails to pass in November. Each of the district comprehensive high school sports programs had been receiving $154,000 for coaching stipends, transportation and equipment. "Everyone realizes what effect eliminating sports would have on our enrollment," Ross said. Nearly two-thirds of last year's high school sports budget went toward coaching stipends. Depending on the sport and level (varsity, junior varsity), stipends rang ...

On the Market: Billionaires Compete Over Quiet $30M Gold Coast Listings
Curbed- New York - almost 5 years
730 Park Avenue may be less famous than 740, but both are having an impressive season when it comes to sales. A few weeks after Courtney Sale Ross finally unloaded her uncombined apartments in 740 Park for $52 million, another billionaire is headed toward a contract at 730 Park. The seller, an unidentified former Goldman Sachs banker, wants something around $35 million in cash for his penthouse. And since "billionaire would-be buyers have already been sometimes crossing paths in the lobby," according to the Journal, he might get it with no more than a quiet listing. The four-bedroom apartment has five terraces, including one off a maid's room. Co-op sales closing at more than $30 million have been relatively rare since 2008, but the Journal sees the interest in the 730 and 740 Park apartments as part of a resurgence in activity for the billionaire buyer set. Ted Forstmann's property at 2 East 70th Street went into contract for a bit more than $40 million after a bidding war; Geor ...

    More Details Hide Details Fulton Ross has cited several classical artists as influences on her work, including Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and Rembrandt, as well as modern day African American masters like Elizabeth Catlett, Charles Wilbert White, Beauford Delaney, and Romare Bearden. Her style incorporates both the abstract and the figurative, as reflected in her eclectic creations. She believes that artists are the humanistic conscience of a materialistic society. Her visual expressions most often depict poignant images of people, especially African American women, reflecting her philosophy that it is the depth and variety of human feelings that motivates art, and indeed that she must become a more sensitive human in order to be a better artist.
