Apart from apathy...'Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.' (Dr. Martin Luther King)
To Decision Makers
Even under extreme circumstances and minimal resources ...through rethinking and working together ...if education is important enough to the stakeholders ...anything is possible.
As we stated in So, How Do we Fix This? Part 1 'Nevada education and elected officials talk ...candidates pitch and students rally ...but where the rubber meets the road ...if no one will make the effort to even get to first base ...nothing in Nevada will ever change.'
Making A Difference
Need To Know's Alison Stewart sat down with three education reformers who are making change from the ground up.
Dr. Pedro Noguera is a professor of education at New York University and also spent five years teaching in public schools in California and Rhode Island. Zakiyah Ansari is a mother of eight children and parent leader at the Coalition for Educational Justice in New York City. And Dr. Susan Szachowicz is the principal of Brockton High School and helped spearhead the literacy initiative that turned it from a failing school into a national model.
In this wide-ranging roundtable discussion, these reformers share their thoughts on the big issues in American education today, including the state of physical education in schools, the role of teachers’ unions, providing adequate social services for students, the pros and cons of charter schools, and race and education.
Education roundtable: Three reformers making change from the ground up

So ...How do we fix this?
Its not rocket science.
Everyone has a stake in this. For tax payer paid officials and faculties there really are no excuses.
For students and parents there is no excuse to not embrace the situation and work together with those trying to make things work.
For those in resistance? For God's sake why? This isn't about YOU.
...and for the sake of everyone else ...get out of the way.
Its All About Choice
Everyone on the planet has personal responsibility in determining how and where they deal with current events and where they find themselves at the end of it all.
The joke is going to be on those who insist on business as usual and looking for answers in all the wrong places or believe they already have the answers.
There are winning choices we can make.
As to education, if there's a will there's a way!
With a little common sense, if State elected officials and employees paid for by the People of Nevada can't get the job done, then the People of Nevada can do it by applying the principles proven to work on the videos in the previous posts. .
Your constructive comments on this post will help take us to the next level.
'The challenge is to get sheep to quit thinking and acting like sheep and start thinking and acting like foxes ...and time is running out.'
Watch out that no one deceives you! Matthew 24
3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist; 2 Timothy 4, 3-5
Even the 'religious' cling to their religion rather than God ...but, when all else is failing as it is right now ...God says:
'If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.'
