Education Reform Isn’t A 4-Letter Word


I am a long term passionate and dedicated educator who speaks from the heart for diversity of all students. The question that ponders my heart is why hasn’t the reality of education reform - ever addressed the physical abuse of licensed educators who are without representation? Most legal firms will not offer any assistance, only excuses. Education is a high profiled national issue in our country!  High profiled celebrities, corporate america, religious leaders, military leaders, human service entrepreneurs and everyday citizens are held accountable WHILE the physical abuse and psychological demeanor of teachers continues to go ignored and void? Sometimes,  it seems that the game changer’s ultimate -responsibility is to maintain workplace silence among staff members, especially the ones with higher stake interest and to h___ with those teachers of less corporate influences. It would also be interesting to explore the diverse percentage of exploded victim educators : Black & Brown vs non color - for male vs female.

The rallying voice is always TEST SCORES!   How can teachers teach in a hostile environment when license is threaten for any type of resistance? How can educators teach children to  experience educational success when the learning environment is hostile, dangerous and insecure?  Formal educational institutions  do not prepare teachers for this type of certification. Many times a great administrator is assumed to be one who demonstrates the greatest manipulative skills and silence staff for $$$$ rewards .  I cannot understand why bystander colleagues and  team members will remain bias and knowingly TURN their heads to allow fellow colleagues to sacrificially stand alone / terminated?


When Genuine - Education Reform - is initiated, our educational system will progress. Parents, students, teachers,administrators,and community leaders will joyfully link arms & hands for the cause of EDUCATION and therefore experience lifelong success with integrity !    Sounds familiar? ..... lEAN ON ME!

What are Some Consequences of Children's Unfulfilled Needs ?

Consquences of Unfulfilled Needs


  • Want - An optional desire.  No danger for existing if left unfulfilled.  Emotional disappointment.

  • Need - Devastating consequences if not met.  All humans will seeks other options to fulfill void. 


5 - Researched Levels of  "Human Needs"  According to Abraham Maslow    
       Hierarchy of  Need. 
 

  1. Level One - Physiological Care : Food , Shelter,  Diet, Bed rest, Clothing, Health related issues 
  2. Level Two – Safety:  Respect, Discipline, Social Laws – rewards & consequences, Safe Home & School Environment, Bulling.
  3. Level Three- Social: Inclusion for home and school, Love, Respect, Accountability.
  4. Level Four-Esteem: Self worth, Praise & Encouragement, Positive Self Esteem, Physical Support.
  5. Level Five- Self Fulfillment / Actualization -Personal Achievement: Realizing personal potential.


If these NEEDS are not met, the child or individual will seek comfort from any other available source.

Many students are excited about planning their careers and  enrolIing in classes for that pathway.  Students become very frustrated when forced to take classes “they feel” do not connect with their goals and become less motivated for applying themselves.  Parents can be very instrumental in supervising students schedule and/or providing enrichment opportunities for connecting that professional area.  If parents ignore this issue and allow it to remain un-addressed, then classroom discipline, class participation, and delinquent assignments may escalate.
 
Parents must be able to identify the learning style of each child.  Children, parents, and teachers learn and study differently.  Once the learning style has been established, parents will understand how to guide children in their studies and how to effectively prepare for test.  School Readiness 

All Students are very sensitive to the integrity and passion level of their teacher(s).  Many students behave differently in the presence of authorities and parents; however, the students’ morals are reflected in he/she daily observations.   FAIRNESS and HONESTY will build or destroy any school environment!   Students may not always admit it, but they expect to be held accountable for their actions with unconditional love, fairness, and honesty.

After over twenty-five years ago, my son recently met one of my former students at his work place.  When my former student realized that my son was his teacher’s son, he said:  “She was hard, but she was fair.”  I guess you would have to be an educator to understand the sentiments of that statement.  I smiled with a warm feeling inside.

Whatever discrepancies a student my experience, unconditional love - accountability and inclusion will motivate them to success.  As you can see, a school day may include many obstacles, but TEAM work is the key!   Parents, educators, and students must work as “Genuine Partners” to address all academic, behavior, and physical needs of the students.

HUMILITY + INTEGRITY = Phenomenon Character!

 HUMILITY + INTEGRITY = Phenomenon Character!

Many children have been raised to feel that certain public accomplishments are the ultimate fulfillment of life; especially those of public acclamation.  Later in life, you will realize that your most valuable and productive moments were those of an average day with friends and relatives whose talents and accomplishment were yet processing.  God has a way of equalizing insecurities (false security) so that our focus return and remain in him, with a heart of humility toward our fellowman.   Humility and Integrity is the greatest showcase of genuine THANKSGIVING; our truest form of Godly Worship.  We should never become mislead by friends in our society and assume their expectations for judging “the assumed” short comings of others.   God and education should polish our behavior for the journey of un- expectancy and the people we meet.  Parents, guardians, and mentors share these expectations.   At the end of the day, as we face life most critical crisis, we will remember that it was the love, friends, and kind words that we cherish most.”  The fall is not as great when we are on our knees.      

HUMILITY + INTEGRITY = Phenomenon Character!

. . . BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED ME

Because He First Loved Me!
 
I have read this passage so many times before and have heard it preached just as much.  Believe me when I tell you that in today’s society,  sincere relationships are in the minor and are of high demand !  There is a frightening edge to assuming motives, integrity, honesty, and provision.  Conversations must be strategic, intentional,and confirmed.  Much of what we do must be guided by a power “greater than ourselves.”   How can we trust the voice of a stranger or have confidence in the familiar?   Somehow, “Because HE first Loved Me”   always breathe a fresh morning fragrance to begin any day! 
 
Demonstrated love, commitment, desires, and goals can be easily followed; In turn becomes a “Product of a Resolved Lifestyle.”    
 
How are you pursuing your resolved lifestyle?

Struggling Teens
"Behavior: Chemical or Emotional ?"
 Many, many years ago I remember teaching a wonderful classroom of students.  One male student was very respectful, but it was always a challenge to remind him each morning to not sleep during first period class.  He would comply.  Several years after him graduating, I met him in a local store and we began reflecting on many school events and positive class conversations.   He then asked me, Ms Prowell, “Do you remember when I was always so sleepy during your first period class?”  I answered, yes.  He said, “Ms. Prowell - I was drunk.”    I was totally taken.  He (now an adult) assured me that he and his family were all well now.   I must ask you, the reader- as parents and educators,  “What service options  are we providing students for getting back on track when their  behavior and conduct  has become repeatedly  irrational , unpredictable,   and progressive?”  Is it possible that the child could be experiencing chemical dependence?  Because they are minors, are there any Pro-Active treatment options available BEFORE a crime is committed?  Most employers have a clause in their company’s policy that allows employees to enter voluntary treatment and after successful completion, are able to return to work.   Our youth face many family and relationship obstacles.  Their classroom misbehavior  may not just be a discipline problem!  They may NEED help that only a caring system/organization could recognize and advocate assistance.

You cannot deal with a teen’s other emotional problems, nor can they if they are self-medicating with alcohol, pot, cocaine, inhalants, crystal meth or other drugs until first they get clean and sober. After detox and rehab, it is important they keep in a 12-step recovery program like AA and NA where they learn new behavior and a new, disciplined, spiritual and honest way of dealing with themselves and others.   http://www.projectknow.com/research/discipline/   

The Most Dangerous Words A Parent Could Ever Say: "DON'T CALL ME"

   . . . . Don't Call Me !
Alarming Words That Demand  Critical Intervention
 
 
Some time parenting can be very stressful.  Not necessarily the child, but maybe circumstances within a given day.  It is obvious when parents have exhausted all areas of remediation.  Many times, all parents need to say is please help me and be willing to receive the level of help that is necessary to create the desired results.
 
Children, I mean those eighteen year and under can be very challenging at times.  Educators and other youth leaders and administrator are committed for the long hall to advocate assistance and provide academic and behavioral intervention to parents for his/her students.  Parents should stay in the game and never give up!  When you withdraw your support and say:  "Don't Call Me"  and willfully .... not attend meetings and appointments ,   it creates fear for maintaining a safe environment.
 
Parent Involvement is not an option,  IT'S CRITICAL  for successful students.
