New Study: Black Students Learn More With Black Teachers

According to a new report, A Community College Instructor Like Me: Race and Ethnicity Interactions in the Classroom, 2.9 percent of students who identify as U.S. minorities—African-American, Native American, Hispanic and Pacific Islander—are more likely to excel if their teachers share their ethnic or racial background.

The report states:

“We find that the performance gap in terms of class dropout and pass rates between white and minority students falls by roughly half when taught by a minority instructor. In models that allow for a full set of ethnic and racial interactions between students and instructors, we find African-American students perform particularly better when taught by African-American instructors. … The class dropout rate relative to Whites is 6 percentage points lower for Black students when taught by a Black instructor. Conditional on completing the course, the relative fraction attaining a B-average or greater is 13 percentage points higher.

”What becomes clear is that the education gap between white students and students who identify as U.S. minorities, is a direct reflection of the gap between white teachers and teachers of color. According to the study’s authors, more research will have to be done to understand the depth of this correlation:
“Our results suggest that the academic achievement gap between white and underrepresented minority college students would decrease by hiring more minority instructors.

Black Students need to know the truth. “Though Whiteness has attempted to claim that we are post-racial, or that we have at least reached the point where the kind of virulent racism experienced by Blacks during slavery and Jim Crow has so severely declined as to make it negligible, ongoing attacks against racial minorities continue to be pervasive in almost every social institution.”

The Afrikaner has always been unenthusiastic about education for Africans. To him it was simply a waste, for the African was inherently ignorant and lazy and no amount of education could remedy that.

Language

The Afrikaner was traditionally hostile to Africans learning English, for English was a foreign tongue to the Afrikaner and the language of emancipation to us. Dr. Hendrik Verwoerd, the minister of Bantu education, explained that education “must train and teach people in accordance with their opportunities in life.” His meaning was that Africans did not and would not have any opportunities, therefore, why educate them? “There is no place for the Bantu in the European community above the level of certain forms of labor,” he said. In short, Africans should be trained to be menial workers, to be in a position of perpetual subordination to the white man.

APARTHEID TIMELINE

Selection 1 (Note: The term “Africans” is used to refer to black Africans.)

· 1651: Dutch settlers arrive in South Africa. In 1756, they import slaves from West Africa, Malaysia, and India, establishing the dominance of whites over non-whites in the region.

1913: The Native Lands Act gives 7.3% of the country’s land to Africans, who make up 80% of the population. Africans are prohibited from owning land outside their region. Africans are allowed to be on white land only if they are working for whites. ·

The homelands are too small to support the many people in them. In Soweto, for example, seventeen to twenty people live in a four-room house.

1920s: Blacks are fired from jobs which are given to whites.

1951: The Bantu Homelands Act. Through this law, the white government declares that the lands reserved for black Africans are independent nations. In this way, the government strips millions of blacks of their South African citizenship and forces them to become residents of their new “homelands.” Blacks are now considered foreigners in white-controlled South Africa, and need passports to enter. Blacks only enter to serve whites in menial jobs.

1953: Bantu Education Act: Through this law, the white government supervises the education of all blacks. Schools condition blacks to accept white domination. Non-whites cannot attend white universities. The state has failed. Opportunities for the people to meet their basic needs in their homeland have moved from restricted to constrained to Blocked!

1970s: Resistance to apartheid increases. Organising by churches and workers increases. Whites join blacks in the demonstrations. pic

Algebra Works Defining Term As At-Risk-Children

 

The contract with the state is that , I agree to follow  abide your laws, while it is the policy of the state to protect the life of every citizen and seek the most appropriate ways to provide the basic needs for its people.

Algebra Works Defining At-Risk-Children

At risk Children are children whose parents are, so restricted both politically and economically, incapable or unable to meet the most basic needs of their children while at school, thus, they are AT-Risk-Children.

According to William Glasser each of us have basic emotional needs:  Glasser’s Five Needs

William_Glasser_Five_Basic_Needs

1. Survival
This is similar to Maslow’s Physiological and Safety level. They are basic needs which are of little interest unless they are threatened.
2. Love and belonging
This is the same as Maslow’s Belonging need and recognises how important it is for us as a tribal species to be accepted by our peers.
3. Power or recognition
This maps to some extent to Maslow’s Esteem need, although the Power element focuses on our ability to achieve our goals (which is perhaps a lower-level control need).
4. Freedom
This is the ability to do what we want, to have free choice. It is connected with procedural justice where we seek fair play.
5. Fun
An interesting ultimate goal. When all else is satisfied, we just (as Cyndi Lauper sang) ‘want to have fun’.

The physical needs of children would  consist of the need for Safety, Food, Fuel, Shelter, and preparation for taking advantage of state opportunity to meet basic needs.

Maslows_Hierarchy_Of_Needs-465x263

 

Needs, which often is presented as a pyramid, is an example of the physical needs individuals experience. The base of the pyramid is the physiological needs, which are necessary for survival. Once these are taken care of, an individual can concentrate on the second layer, the need for safety and security. The third layer is the need for love and belonging, followed by the need for esteem. Finally, self-actualization forms the apex of the pyramid. In this scheme, the first four layers are what Maslow called deficiency of needs or D Needs. If they are not filled, you feel anxiety and attempt to fill them. If they are filled, you feel nothing; you feel only the lack. Each layer also takes precedence over the layer above it; you do not feel the lack of safety and security until your physiological needs are taken care of, for example. In Maslow’s terminology, a need does not become relevant until the needs below it are met.
1. Biological needs (food, water, etc.)
2. Safety needs (shelter)
3. Love/belonging
4. Esteem/status
5. self-actualization (becoming the best person we can be)

SUMMARY:

Survival & LIFE Needs: Food, shelter, clothing, bodily functions, procreate the
species, air to breathe, water to drink, etc.

Belonging, Belongingness, & Affection: To love and be loved by family,
friends, group organizations, clubs, teams, pets, etc.

Power, Respect, & Self-Respect: Our achievements, accomplishments, talents,
skills, abilities, feeling good about ourselves, etc.

Freedom: We want to be able to make choices in our lives and do what we want, when we
want, how and where we want.

Fun: We all want to laugh and we all want to have a good time.

Safety & Security: We all want to feel safe and also to feel secure in our environment.

Self-Actualization: EXAMPLES OF SOMEONE WHO IS SELF-ACTUALIZED:
someone who is strong and independent.
someone who is able to gratify his or her own needs and wishes.
someone who is good, not because he or she is afraid of consequences, but simply
because he or she thinks it is a cool thing to be good.
someone who always listens to his or her conscience, that little voice we all have inside of
us.
someone who is responsible rather than dependent.
someone who can replace fear with courage. Everyone is afraid at one time or another.
But what do you do about that fear? Do you hide under the covers or in a closet? Or do
you do what you need to do in spite of any fear feelings?

Similarities:
Glasser’s SURVIVAL needs similar to Maslow’s LIFE NEEDS of air, water, food, shelter, clothing, etc.
Glasser’s BELONGING need similar to Maslow’s BELONGINGNESS & AFFECTION.
Glasser’s POWER & RESPECT needs similar to Maslow’s RESPECT & SELF-RESPECT.
Differences:
Only Glasser’s chart mentions FREEDOM & FUN.
Only Maslow’s chart mentions SAFETY & SECURITY and SELF-ACTUALIZATION.

 

Other Need:

One other need that individuals can have is a spiritual need. Some sense that there is a greater power or being. That being cares about what happens to me, that my basic needs or met, even if the state fails me.

 

Hemp Farmers Arrested at DEA – Video Select for Media

Hemp farmers, business owners and Vote Hemp representatives plant industrial hemp seeds on the DEA headquarters lawn and are arrested.

It’s time for zero tolerance of this entire marijuana/hemp prohibition. We need hemp now for all of the benefits that crop can bring, and we need to get rid of this ridiculous marijuana prohibition that nobody except the pharmaceutical lobby and the DEA supports. It’s up to us to stop allowing this idiotic prohibition. It’s a prohibition that’s being forced down the throats of Americans against their will.

Organic Hemp Oil Now… Why Hemp Oil?

Therapeutic Uses of Organic Hemp Oil
Cardiovascular Diseases – Most of the cardiovascular diseases threatening the health of people around the world are caused by the formation of arterial plaque, i.e. the deposition of blood components on the interior walls of our blood vessels. This process may eventually block blood flow and cause arteriosclerosis and strokes. LDL cholesterol, a sticky substance present in the blood, has been identified as one of the main contributors to arterial plaque formation. Among other factors, such as smoking and stress, the intake of the saturated fatty acids present in animal fat is known to contribute to a high LDL level in the blood. Reversely, dietary treatment of patients with daily doses of linoleic acid and GLA which correspond roughly to four teaspoons of hemp oil, has shown to rapidly decrease elevated blood levels of both, LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol. Thus, the regular use of hemp oil may help reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases.

PMS – PMS, or premenstrual syndrome, can include varying intensities of painful muscular tension, swelling of the breast, nervosity and irritability as well as aggressivity and depression. Investigations indicate that women with PMS suffer from a fatty acid metabolism disorder. The ability to convert linoleic acid into gamma-linolenic acid and subsequently into prostaglandins is disturbed. A daily dose of 1.37 grams linoleic acid and 156 milligrams GLA over a period of twelve weeks has been shown to significantly improve the PMS related symptoms in clinical studies. This dose corresponds to only one teaspoon of hemp oil a day. Rheumatoid Arthritis – Some fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid, are indicated as effective anti-inflammatory and immune system stimulating factors. Daily oral administration of 1.2-1.4 grams of GLA (corresponding to eight teaspoons of hemp oil) over a period of twelve weeks has been clinically proven to significantly alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Other Diseases – A number of clinical studies suggest administration of GLA as preventive measure and as a treatment for multiple sclerosis, schizophrenic psychosis, and cancer. Multiple sclerosis occurs more frequently in geographical regions where the diet includes high amounts of saturated fats. Dietary supplementation of unsaturated fatty acids may have a positive effect on the course of the disease. In patients with schizophrenic psychosis disturbances are found in the fatty acid metabolism which might be treated through administration of essential fatty acids. Cancer treatment may be assisted by administration of linoleic acid and GLA. Cancer tissue and cells have lower contents of GLA and other related metabolites compared to healthy tissue. Linoleic acid enhances die-off of cancer cells, an administration of this essential fatty acid might therefore prove to have positive effects.
Health and NutritionImage
A variety of health problems including heart disease, obesity, and certain cancers have been blamed on fats and oils. Most of these conditions can be attributed to an unhealthy lifestyle with excess dietary intake of improper types of fat. Health specialists recommend that fat consumption be limited to no more than 30 percent of the total calorie intake. However, fats are not only a source of energy, but also the source of two unsaturated, so-called essential fatty acids. They need to be included in the diet because they cannot be produced by the human body.

Hemp processing

A representative of HempOil Canada discusses the processing of hemp and materials made of hemp
Industrial Hemp is legal in Canada. We can all become self sustaining,communities by adding Hemp into our fields. as the USA is free to purchase Hemp products, and until they get a bit smarter and decide to legalize it so they can do the same, we should encourage it widespread in BC…It would be nice if they legalized Marijuana too but for now, why not plant a legal cash crop…

Processing Hemp

Processing Hemp

Savvy investors know the timing couldn’t be better, as many have started investing in solid, lucrative companies such as Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) and other companies like GrowLife, GreenGro Technologies, and Medical Marijuana, Inc. Just two years ago, Prop 19 in California sought to legalize recreational use of marijuana. That caused a rush for marijuana company stock from October 11 to 19, 2010. The strongest company, Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), bounced from less than one cent to 4.8 cents in that week, a spike of 473% (from .0085 to 0.487) due to the massive publicity surrounding the marijuana issue. With the legalization of marijuana in two states, stocks have increased in volume dramatically.
LEAP Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
We believe that in a regulated and controlled environment, drugs will be safer for adult use and less accessible to our children. And we believe that by placing drug abuse in the hands of medical professionals instead of the criminal justice system, we will reduce rates of addiction and overdose deaths. |
