Theory does not give the teacher the skills required to analyze, prepare, teach, transform and evaluate a classroom of students. Individuals should prepare for the classroom the same way a medical student prepares for the operating room. No hospital would permit a graduate student operating privileges in a first class hospital. Before permitted to enter the room with live individuals, the doctor has demonstrated competence in all procedures regarding operating room procedures, one would hope there are no on the job training operating procedures, if so, I would not want to be the patient depending on this novice for my life. The doctor would have read the theoretical information regarding life saving procedures, but unless he has also had practical opportunities to learn practical procedures for entering the body, no sane person would submit to becoming the training manual for theories learned in a classroom

I spend a lot of time on social media listening to people speak about issues of concern. Many frustrated teachers come into the chat room and almost all of them have negative issues about working with students. Most present different stages of Burnout, blaming parental support, student […]

What color is your God? The mental color of your God determines if you are an oppressor of mankind or a victim of oppression. Man is made in the image and likeness of God, and thus when we see man, we see God. The closer the resemblance to God, the more worthy the man; it is the perception and conception of the God principle that is preventing peace in the world in our time. The Christian God is German and presents the modern day image of what God is expected to be in the mind of men. Rome significantly influenced the German culture; Rome laid the foundation for modern day Christianity. The gods of ancient Rome could account for the 20th century killing of the Hebrew people in World War 2. The gods of ancient Rome could have inspired the continuation of slavery and oppression of American Nubian people in the 19th century. What color is your God and do you hate others through your religion and concept of that God?

“The earliest written form of the Germanic word God comes from the 6th century Christian Codex Argenteus. The English word itself is derived from the Proto-Germanic * ǥuđan. Most linguists agree that the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European form * ǵhu-tó-m was based on the root * ǵhau(ə)-, which meant […]

America should not give tax relief and exemptions to religious organization that teach racism or promote ideas that one group is superior and one group is inferior. Churches that encourage racism as its core beliefs should not receive tax dollars or exemption for any of its programs. The Bible Belt, the area of the country, which serves challenging populations, depends upon the Bible to educate themselves and children on belief systems accepted by God. In order to stop racism and oppression it is necessary to get to the source and root cause of these behaviors. The Bible Belt is racist because the Bible tells them that the man of color is cursed and deserves to be cursed. Anti gay beliefs are strong in the Bible Belt, because most suggests that the Bible, through Paul, encourages hatred and mistreatment of gay people. The question is, should the rest of the country pay for churches to preach, teach and have the rights to hate others validated by scripture. If scripture does this, then scripture is wrong, and taxpayers should not support wrong thought and behavior.

Get rid of racism now. Appalachia is not smarter than the minorities in America. Appalachia is not smarter than the peoples of color in America. Appalachia is not smarter than the Caribbean, Indians, Africans, Chinese, Korean, Middle Eastern, Hebrews, Japanese, South American, Central American, South Eastern Asian […]

Wisdom of teaching, Spirituality of teaching. Teaching is like ministry, often the reluctant are called. Those who have no patience with the behaviors of life and are disappointed in individuals, small or large who cannot get their act together and act in responsible ways. Not liking children is not a disqualification for becoming a teacher. Impatience with the sinful nature of human beings will not stop the call to ministry from driving the heart the soul and the body into field that serve the family of man. Education will provide the skills for handling any and all human situations, and the more prepared with education, the more success and enjoyment will come from success in the profession God in His/Her wisdom has selected for you.

Spirituality and Teaching Buber defines spiritual teaching as having a relationship with God; he calls it taking on the God-self within. The individual enters into a relationship with God based on mutual respect. This, I-thou relationship with God, makes it possible to see and know thy self, […]

The rags to riches story of America inspires the world. The slavery to wealth story validates our glory. The mass movement of millions of people from all nationalities, greeds and genders demonstrate to the world that peace among human beings is possible. America has reluctantly assumed the responsibility of trying out the “Brave New World” before other nations join in. America is an awesome responsibility, and thank God He sends the best to lead this great nation. President Obama understands and has provided excellent leadership in these challening times, as did president Bush through his challenges. America must now lead in the area of education as a means to eliminating hunger and poverty in our time. Education must go after racism and religion and make sure man is doing the will of God rather than creating beliefs to justify the mistreatment of others. If Christianity is the source of racism in America, then Christianity must change to adjust to the belief that all men are the same and from the same family of God.

               Christians are not permitted or encouraged to question scripture and would never go that deep into scripture to determine meaning and reference, it is however referenced here because this scripture influences American thought about peoples of color and how they should be treated. If teachers tend […]

Christianity must take the lead in ending racism in America and in the world. We are racist because we are Christian, and Christians are Jews, and Jews are Muslim. Abraham the father of us all was a man recorded in sacred Torah scripture, Biblical Scripture and the sacred writings of the Koran. We all believe and drink from the same fountain but we are nurished in different ways and encouraged to do different things. We hate each other because tradition encourages that hate. Christianity, at this time, is the largest world religion with 2 billion identifying with the faith. It will therefore, be the challenge to Christianity to end racism by challenging flawed religious beliefs.

Stand when you feel like falling, stand when all seems lost, stand when life seems to lose all of its meaning, stand will reality says hope has gone. Hariet Tubman stands as a symbol of a people guided by faith not reality, that life is worth living and holding on. Slavery and the African American demonstrates God’s power to stand with a people through any and all adversity, and they will see God’s Kingdom here on earth in the flesh. The Anglos and the Saxons, the same people who had the power to destroy the lives of oppressed men women and children make up the moral foundation of America, the results however are different. The fact that the results are different is one of God’s greatest miracle on earth, and a visible representations of the teachings of Jesus. It is not what evil does to people, it is rather how the victim handles evil and provides God an opportunity to demonstrate that He is still in charge.

Harriet Tubman, was formally commended by the Secretary of War for her work as a Union scout and as a nurse in the Sea Islands. Thousands of other blacks led Union troops to hidden valuables, buried cotton, and food stores left behind by fleeing Confederates. Southern blacks simply […]

Harriet Ross Tubman face will be on the $20 bill, replacing Andrew Jackson. Tubman is the best symbol of the untold story of America, where black and white men and women of God, and Churches dedicated to true Christian values helped the victims of injustice. Studying slavery, white and black, opens up the doors to America’s truths. It is the American Revolution, freeing the indentured servants of Europe, and the Civil War free oppressed peoples of color, which defines who we are as a country and a moral nation. Yes, a new nation came into existenance, with the Revolution, and the Union was secured through the Civil war, but it is the African American backstory that tells our glory.

Slavery in America: Historical Overview By Ronald L. F. Davis, Ph. D.

Most prosperous in the low-country areas, it was beginning […]

Using drugs to handle life’s realities can destroy experiencing the joy of who you are cold sober. Who are you without the drugs, can you handle life? Can you reach your purest self without chemical stimulation? You are who you are without drugs or alcohol. If you can sing, you can sing, if you can act, you can act, if you can play sports you can play sports. If chemical substances are needed to deliver performance, then you are cheating yourself and your audience. Learn to love and accept the authentic self without chemical alteration, it is there you find peace and true love. Someone will accept you with all your flaws, missed notes, missed dance steps, high sports achievements and a face with no make up. Performing for the wrong crowd could destroy the self that is you. Men survived difficult circumstances, because what they had to endure did not define who they were. In my ancestral literature my great great great grand father wrote, that although he was in Bondage, he was never a slave, and that spiritual freedom enabled him to purchase his whole family out of Bondage ( Alexander E. DeBose).

The idea that someone has the power to program, control and predict a human beings behavior through the development and use of a behavior altering substance is frightening. It suggests that with the use of drugs, legal or illegal, you are a puppet and someone has the […]
