Toward Equality of Educational Opportunity: Lessons of the Coleman Report at 50 Widely recognized as perhaps the single most important 20th century research study on education, the Coleman Report explored the variables in student academic achievement. Fifty years after James S. Coleman published his study of more than 600,000 students and teachers, the keys to providing the best educational opportunity to the broadest number of students remain elusive. The Coleman Report is particularly meaningful to us at Purdue as James Coleman studied here, completing a degree in chemical engineering before moving on to his doctoral studies in sociology.

Recorded on February 25, 2016 The Spring 2016 issue of Education Next is dedicated to revisiting on its 50th anniversary James S. Coleman’s 1966 report “Equality of Educational Opportunity” better known as the Coleman Report. The issue features articles by leading scholars that revisit and update Coleman’s findings on desegregation, the achievement gap, teacher quality, the role of the family, academic games, and the racial composition of schools. The issue also examines how education policy has applied these findings over the last 50 years. The February 25 event in Washington, D.C., featured the following panel discussions on the progress our country has made in narrowing the achievement gap and attaining educational equality for student minority groups in the decades since the publication of the Coleman Report.

See: http://ieet.org/index.php/IEET/biopolitics - Technoprogressivism is an ideological stance with roots in Enlightenment thought which focuses on how human flourishing is advanced by the convergence of technological progress and democratic social change. Technoprogressives argue that technological innovations can be profoundly empowering and emancipatory when they are democratically and transparently regulated for safety and efficacy, and then made universally and equitably available. Technoprogressives maintain that accounts of"progress” should focus on ethical and social as well as scientific and technical dimensions. For most technoprogressives, then, the growth of scientific knowledge or the accumulation of technological powers will not represent the achievement of proper progress unless and until it is accompanied by a just distribution of the costs, risks, and benefits of these new knowledges and capacities. At the same time, for most technoprogressives the achievement of better democracy, greater fairness, less violence, and a wider rights culture are all desirable, but inadequate in themselves to confront the quandaries of contemporary technological societies unless and until they are accompanied by progress in science and technology to support and implement these values. Technoprogressives support the rights of persons to either maintain or modify his or her own mind and body, on his or her own terms, through informed, consensual recourse to, or refusal of, available therapeutic or enabling biomedical technology. Technoprogressivism extends beyond cognitive liberty and morphological rights to views on safe, accountable and liberatory uses of emerging technologies such as genomic choice in reproduction, GMOs, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, surveillance and geoengineering.

"Free Will and Human Dignity: A Love Story" by @LearnLiberty. Learn More: https://www.learnliberty.org/ What is the value of free will and the ability to make your own choices? Prof. James Otteson recalls a parable his teacher taught him in high school. If you had the ability to make a woman fall in love with you, would you like it? Would you prefer to force someone to love you or to have someone offer to give their love to you freely? Love freely given is so much more valuable. This story illustrates an important moral insight: Respecting people means allowing them to make their own choices, even if you believe the choices they will make are poor. Without the ability to choose for ourselves, we lose a bit of what makes us human. Do you find it frustrating when you are not allowed to make your own decisions? What would you do differently if people or government were not preventing your actions? Do you think you're better or worse when your choices are limited or taken from you?

A video by the Free Congress Foundation. It should be noted that the agenda for the breakdown of western institutions, such as Christian values and the family unit, were not an exclusive of the Frankfurt School, or the radical communists. Nothing would be further from the truth since we find that these movements to radically alter society would never have succeeded in the West had they not been given, to this day, a free pass and billions of dollars worth in funding by the...über-capitalists. Via their massive foundations and institutions. It's well worth to go into the investigations by the Reece Congressional Committee, in the 1950s, where the investigators were told to their faces by high-ranking members of Ford, Rockefeller and Carnegie Endowment, that indeed they were funding radical communism in the West and would continue to do so. The final objective, as was stated then, was to lead the masses into welcoming a socialist system, where they would be highly impoverished, and their lives would ultimately be totally managed by the state; as the state would itself be run by oligopolies and investment banks, society would be turned into a regimented slave plantation, where people would work orderly for their masters. Hence, communism at the bottom, fascism at the top. The findings of that committee were confirmed by many other investigations and events and, ultimately, they're all around us now, for everyone to see. You'd have to be blind, not to notice that nowadays' collectivist movements are all funded and nourished from Wall Street/London City/Basel Switzerland (with incredible primacy to environmentalism and its agendas of zero-growth/'austerity'/malthusianism). And it also doesn't take a PhD to realize we are indeed plunging head-on into the global plantation of a two class-system, run by a cartel of investment bankers and internationalist oligarchs, via front agencies such as the BIS, the IMF and the World Bank, among several others.

Through the restriction of carbohydrates, it re-programs your metabolism to burn your fat stores for fuel rather than using the glycogen stored in your muscles. The low-carb intake helps to keep your insulin and blood sugar levels from spiking. This allows your fat cells to begin releasing fatty acids, which your liver will then breakdown to produce what are called "ketones." Ketosis is the physiological state that is achieved when your body breaks down ketones for energy rather than the glucose from carbohydrates. My website: http://www.fit2fat2fit.com

What is ATTACK THERAPY? What does ATTACK THERAPY mean? ATTACK THERAPY meaning - ATTACK THERAPY definition - ATTACK THERAPY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Attack therapy is a controversial type of psychotherapy evolved from ventilation therapy. It involves highly confrontational interaction between the patient and a therapist, or between the patient and fellow patients during group therapy, in which the patient may be verbally abused, denounced, or humiliated by the therapist or other members of the group. The method has been used by groups such as Synanon, Straight, Inc., Élan School, DeSisto School, Amity Circle Tree Ranch, and similar methods have been employed in Large Group Awareness Training, TROSA. A 1990 report by the Institute of Medicine on methods for treating alcohol problems suggested that the self-image of individuals should be assessed before they were assigned to undergo attack therapy; there was evidence that persons with a positive self-image may profit from the therapy, while people with a negative self-image would not profit, or might indeed be harmed. Attack therapy can be particularly problematic when the group members are captive, and not allowed to leave during the sessions. In Group Psychotherapy with Addicted Populations, Flores notes that attack therapy can take place when individuals are psychologically intimidated in a confrontational atmosphere. In her book Help at Any Cost: How the Troubled-teen Industry Cons Parents And Hurts Kids, Maia Szalavitz writes that attack therapy can include the tactics of isolation, and rigid imposition of rules, which later leads to a restoration of limited permissive freedom, and an acknowledgement of those that did comply with the strict rules. Psychologist Donald Eisner writes in The Death of Psychotherapy that attack therapy: "attempts to tear down the patient's defenses by extreme verbal or physical measures." Tudor describes attack therapy in Group Counselling, writing that the individual is ridiculed in front of others, and cross-examined and questioned about their personal behavior patterns. According to Maran's book Dirty, attack therapy can take place in "all-night encounter groups and daily interactions." Monti, Colby, and O'Leary write in Adolescents, Alcohol, and Substance Abuse that in attack therapy, there was a movement to: "tear them down in order to build them up", referring to a methodology of tearing down the individual ego in order to then educate the individual in the inherent thought-patterns of the group and the group leader. In Concise Encyclopedia of Psychology, Corsini and Auerbach note that attack therapy puts an emphasis on the expression of anger by each individual. One Nation Under Therapy by Satel and Sommers characterized attack therapy as among the "more bizarre expressive therapies", and put it in the same category as The Primal Scream, Nude Encounter, and Rolfing. In Social Problems, Coleman and Cressey write that in attack therapy, one individual is criticized and "torn down" by the rest of the larger group. In their textbook, Helping People Change, Kanfer and Goldstein note that controversial group Synanon used a form of attack therapy. A publication by the National Association for Mental Health wrote that the Synanon form of attack therapy was also called the "Synanon confrontation game" The Concise Encyclopedia of Psychology also described the Synanon method of attack therapy, noting that it even differed from other models that could be seen as using a similar approach. Balgooyen compared "Synanon game verbal attack therapy" to standard group therapy, in a study published in the Journal of Community Psychology. In Dictionary of American Penology, Williams writes that attack therapy was actually first developed in the Synanon group....

Last September, I decided to throw caution to the wind in order to follow my passion. Before I took the first step, I spent many years trying to find stories of people who had made similar changes, but there wasn't all that much to go on. I had so many questions that I couldn't find answers to, so I decided that when I began studying I would make videos to try and answer some of those questions. So that's what I'm doing!

ORLANDO, Fla., — Christopher G. Hurn, chief executive officer of Mercantile Capital Corporation in Orlando, can add the title 'published author' to his professional resume. On Oct. 1 Hurn plans to release The Entrepreneur's Secret to Creating Wealth: How the Smartest Business Owners Build Their Fortunes, his first book. He also has a special offer for entrepreneurs: buy two or more copies of his new book, and he'll donate all proceeds to the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation. The book, which sells for $19.95, offers Hurn's unique perspective on wealth he gained lending money — $318 million so far in 2012 — to fund the efforts of small business entrepreneurs to acquire or develop their own facilities. Hurn, a frequent guest as a small business commentator on Fox Business News, The Huffington Post, PBS and other media outlets, said he knows how small business entrepreneurs think because he is one. "American small business entrepreneurs bear more of the burden when there's a recession yet they do more to power the American economy than government, multi-national corporations, big banks and the Federal Reserve combined," Hurn said. Hurn believes it's that entrepreneurial spirit that makes America exceptional. But it takes more than just spirit to make a business thrive. "There's no magic to starting a business; more than 500,000 Americans do it every year. The secret is how to grow your net worth, while simultaneously growing your business," Hurn said. "When you do both, with the strategies I explain in my book, you can literally build a fortune." Hurn knows whereof he speaks. So far this year, Mercantile Capital Corporation has closed 75 loans that have financed projects valued at more than $318 million. One of the nation's leading providers of U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 Loans, Mercantile Capital Corporation financed projects valued at just $174 million during all of 2011. Hurn said he is already at work on his second book. To order your copy from Amazon today, go to: http://www.amazon.com/Chris-Hurn/e/B0096D6PWY

There are just 85 black professors out of 18,510 in the UK and the number has barely changed in eight years. The percent of black professors (0.4%) shows a striking disparity with the proportion of black students, which has increased steadily each year and now stands at 6%.

On the major social and political issues of our time, Walter Williams is one of America’s most important and provocative thinkers. He is black, yet he opposes affirmative action. He believes that the Civil Rights Act was a major error, that the minimum wage actually creates unemployment and that occupational and business licensure and industry regulation work against minorities and others in American business. Perhaps most importantly he has come to believe that it has been the welfare state that has done to black Americans what slavery could never do: destroy the black family. Walter Williams expresses all of these provocative ideas and more in this new public television documentary produced by Free To Choose Network. The program features material drawn from extensive contemporary interviews with Dr. Williams as well as appearances by authors and scholars: Shelby Steele, Thomas Sowell, Douglas Ginsberg and others. A rich archive of photographs and motion pictures supports this uniquely American story. The program traces Walter Williams rise from a child of the Philadelphia housing projects to become one of America’s most important authors and commentators and features the events of the 1960's when Walter Williams realized "black people cannot make great progress until they understand the economic system." It was then that he concluded that what America needed was to heed the words and the ideas of the Constitution. Check out our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/FreeToChoose...

The American Novel Since 1945 (ENGL 291) In the first of her two lectures on Edward P. Jones's The Known World, Professor Hungerford begins from the novel's title, asking what counts as knowledge in the novel and why knowledge is central to the story. This leads to related questions: who is a knower, and what can be known? Highlighting several different versions of how knowledge of the past is communicated through storytelling within the novel, she draws distinctions between Jones's model of historical knowledge and that of other writers on the syllabus. Professor Hungerford suggests that Jones revives a nineteenth-century form of the novel when his narrator takes on a God-like omniscience, but unlike the nineteenth-century novel's narrators, Jones's omniscient narrator provides little in the way of God-like consolation. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
