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!

Does Early Childhood Christian Education Impact Young Children As Secular Education?

Positive Impacts of Early Christian Education in Children

 DON’T  TURN  THEM  AWAY!
(Family and Christian Education)
 

As I reminisce the calculated thoughts of adult leaders, I am reminded that most adults judge from their own experiences or observations.  The educational system rely on a series of tangible evaluations to determine the validity of a child's knowledge and behaviors.  However, when it come to a child’s creditability (knowledge, comprehension, and application)  of his/her  Faith - and relationship with Jesus, some adults / leaders respond casually to substantiate his own authority in luau of the child’s age, limited knowledge of the child's Christian Education family history  / worship practices or the assumed  Christian Education level of the child. 
 
The times we are living in today mandated a rooted salvation and  is imperative that children are introduced and taught to build a progressive- personal  relationship with Jesus.

 I ponder the question: “ How is it possible that some professionals agree that children’s  cognitive and intellectual developments are enhanced through parental interactions during the prenatal stages  (through  voice/tone, touching - rubbing abdomen/ sensitivity, reading - language & vocabulary development)   which creates  advance comprehension  and  strong  intellectual abilities in the unborn child,  but when pertaining  to spiritual matters  ( such as the child’s sensitivity level  & his/her courage to openly proclaim  the Holy Spirit naming  Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior)  the child’s confession is denied?   People are seeking affirmation all over the world.  So much so that news reporters are sharing impacts from least to most.  All great leader will tell you that their success was credited to their faith.  It is very simple, the younger the child for commitment, greater the opportunities to utilize time for GREATNESS!   Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Scientist and Educator, George Washington Carver – openly credits their faith as a youth. 
 – Why would a Christian Leader procrastinate and hinder the planting and growth of such life changing – Eternal Seed in a young innocence child – before corruption?
 
Children and Families are experiencing tragedies everyday.  Many of these tragedies are sudden and seemly unbearable.  Usually a Clergy or Group Counselors are assigned to offer comfort and grieving support by connecting them to a religious founder, psychologist, or an author of a bestselling grieving book.
 
He that worship God, must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).  Know no man after the flesh, but after the spirit (2 Corinthians 5:16).  Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of heaven (Matthew 19:14). Let Him In (Revelation 3:20)
How can some Christians Leaders tell children to deny Christ now because you are to young in hope to embrace him later on when you are older?  When their hearts and minds are no longer interested and temptation is so much great?
 
God, our Father, and His Son, Jesus – do not know man or children by their ages, but by their spirit and heart toward him.   God knows the intents and motives of Man’s heart!  Innocence – “unrehearsed” ---   hearts of boys, girls, men, and women are what God desires to use.  One should consider the nature of the child who is proclaiming Jesus?  Humble, Peaceful, Arrogant, Disrespectful, and Violent?  I agree that Christ forgives all…. But we must not fail to remember that God does communicate with any quiet, sensitive spirit who desire and love him.   Don’t be mislead by individual personality types.    When a child publicly acknowledges Jesus as his/her savior – it is serious and could be very detrimental if a leader responded outside the character of Christ with rejection.  
 
I truly believe that the Holy Spirit knows all things.  He has given “HIMSELF” as a conclusive gift to be utilized by everyone, regardless of age to successfully survive  challenges and optical of life.  In other words, adults characterize the teen years as being most challenging for teens when expectations are high and adversities overwhelming.  It is during this period of life when teens face numerous private issues, who can they talk to when they are fearful and standing alone?  Who will give them the strength and courage to speak out?  To decide which group or situation to say “NO” to   OR  having the strength to expose wrong doers?   At this point , to a child/teen - just knowing God (the person, or who they heard talked about in church) is not enough!  They truly desire the need to talk to a friend, one whom they have a relationship with and above all, trust.   – The God that was denied of him/her when their hearts were tender and receptive.  Now that the teen has bonded with destructive peers, made some wrong choices to hide their pain – Now, everyone wants to gladly, forcefully, give him/her JESUS!  How would Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr respond to this?
Question is :  How might this tragedy  been avoided if the spiritual leader had embraced the child’s confession and provided ongoing - nurtured - spiritual growth to he/she and his/her family?
 
I remember many years ago, when I owned a Christian Preschool where biblical teaching  and devotion was part of our daily devotion.  One of our children suddenly died due to a fatal hidden illness.  This was our first experience to process this type of grief at a school of young children  and  I regretted having to greet and inform the children and parents the following day.  I prayed to God  for guidance in sharing such sad news effectively. As we began devotion, the Lord immediately gave me insight of how to handle this announcement.  We followed our normal routine with our standard bible questions -with so much joy, excitement, and praise!  That afternoon during pickup time, the children were anxious to share the news with their parents of the death of their friend/classmate.  Parents rushed to me saying,  “Ms. Wanda what is this about _______has gone up to heaven to be with God?”  There were absolutely “NO Tear” through out the day from anyone!  All the children played, ate, and slept as usual.  They actually made our day joyous!
 
IT IS IMPORTANT, ESSENTIAL , URGENT– to give children prenatal and early childhood Christian Education at home first.  Even if the child was born to unbelieving parents, it is still the authority and solvency of God to render prophetic callings as he pleases.  Greatness and Prophetic Callings throughout the bible  have always been initiated from  prenatal and birth of  leaders as children.   God ordains the path and journey for those he will pour into.
 
Don’t turn children away or deny them the ownership for beginning a successful life's journey, ….. They are going to NEED JESUS!

What Matters Most to PARENTS?

What Matters Most to Parents ?


 
(1.)  Speak the language that .... C A R E S
(2.)  Parents - Stressed Beyond!

Every parent long to hear comforting words of instructions from a voice  they love and trust.




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.

Believe it or not, no matter how wonderful and effective the presenter’s message and activities may be a great number of adults / parents may be offended just by personal feelings of rejection  “not being a good parent.”  I remember back in the days when I  heard many parents admitted in front of their children, their inadequacies  and lack of opportunity as a child for not  getting a good education.  Many things they didn’t learn; therefore would readily correct and demand diligence from their children for a better life.  Very few people are admitting any inadequacy  in today’s society.  Most of the reading materials are not written in a format that holds the attention of the parents who need it most, and a quick read.  It is impossible to relate to a parent or anyone who feels offended or inadequate.  Therefore, the approach must be “relationship focused” more so than teaching focused, or "telling focused."  Environment and facilitator / teacher are “key” for a successful parenting program.  Local church facilities could be an awesome location for familiarity, coupled with a “professional - humanitarian facilitator. “  All parent reading materials should be simple and loving  in language and relevant to their everyday challenges and experiences.  Most of the time, the information that is given to the parent who needs it most, language is “over their head” and does not connect.  That could be why certain “unprofitable – non classroom connecting - written materials” are read more frequently.  Most youth and adults are reading, question is: What are they reading?  My experience has been that approach is a very valuable resource for effective parenting.  Like the children, once a relationship has been earned, learning and advancement occurs for the entire family.  I strongly suggest (1) Availability of selective short, to the point, real life reading materials (2) Series of short “follow up” relating FREE speaker’s topics / films - with ending refreshment & fellowship (3) Give parents options for continued communication.  (4)  Teacher / staff do general “How are you doing?”  How can I assist you type follow up calls – Customer service.  Most importantly - respect the scheduling and time of the parents when planning such events. Always start on time and end on time, regardless of the number in attendance.    Read more in “School Readiness for Parents & Children, K-12   www.resolved-2010.com
