PODCAST: ALICE LINAHAN SHOW – WOMEN ON THE WALL — WEDNESDAY NIGHT, 8.12.15

 

Guests Ray Myers and Maria Espinoza warned the public about an anti-illegal amnesty rally in Corsicana, Texas, on Aug. 22, 2015. This is a well-orchestrated national effort to turn Corsicana and other small and urban cities into Sanctuary Cities where illegals who have warrants against them are free from the law.  

Lynn M. Taylor and Alice explained more about the NCLB reauthorization bills and the danger of Title I portability and “full service community schools.”

Donna Garner presented a suggested anti-discrimination policy that schools should adopt and a list of positive, personal character traits that teachers need to weave into their policies and curriculum to help all students develop into mature adults who are a blessing to those around them.

EXAMPLE OF COMMON SENSE, NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY — TAKEN FROM ONE STATE’S POLICY STATEMENT

“Each district’s anti-bullying policy shall be founded on the assumption that all students need a safe learning environment. Policies shall treat students equally and shall not contain specific lists of protected classes of students who are to receive special treatment. Policies may include age-appropriate differences for schools based on the grade levels at the school. Each such policy shall contain a statement of the consequences of bullying [including] cyberbullying, e-mails as acts of bullying, intimidation and harassment.”

==========
Schools should work these Positive Personal Character Traits into their policy statements:

[2.17.15 – This is a list of positive personal character traits that I helped to develop while working for Scott & White Worth the Wait abstinence-education program. Permission has been granted by S&W to share this widely with any and all. These are the character traits that parents, teachers, communities, religious institutions, etc. need to emphasize intentionally as they work with children to help them develop into mature adults who are a blessing to those around them. – Donna Garner]
