High Stakes Testing As Class War Strategy

program date: 
Mon, 03/10/2014
Bill Resnick talks with local education activist Hyung Nam about high stakes testing in US schools. Hyung talks about how he was threatened with firing from Wilson High School for asking critical questions about high stakes testing, but also for raising other critical questions about teacher's academic freedom. Hyung explains how business interests are driving "education reform" to turn education into a business. This is happening, he says, in the broader context of capitalism's perpetual crisis (stagnating wages, recessions, collapsing tax bases, etc.), which is transfered to the sphere of education in terms of greedy or lazy teachers. 20:17 minutes (18.57 MB)

Host Sutree has a very interesting and enlightening conversation with Annam of The HeartGate Sanctuary just outside of Hood River Oregon.

From age 7, Annam was awake to divine Word. At 17, a revelatory spiritual experience increased this capacity and began her lifelong commitment to God-centered awareness.
 
Annam has been referred to as a midwife to the soul and a bridge to the God Mind within. She inspires us to true awareness and unity consciousness as she helps you to become your authentic divine self. Annam is a modern mystic for the student of life, Unity and the presence of the diving spirit.

program date: 
Fri, 03/07/2014
Portland area lawyer and activist spoke on the USAPATRIOT Act.

 A main theme was the interplay between individual rights and collective security. Mr Nelson showed slides of the 1st, 4th and 5th amendments to the US Constitution and gave several examples, including Portland’s Mohamed Mohamud case, of how government actions may vary.  He argued that individual rights are both most vulnerable and most important in times of crises. Mr Nelson, a lawyer, summarized by saying that the courts may slowly be reigning in the constitutional abuses of the U.S.A.P.A.T.R.I.O.T Act and that citizens are ultimately responsible for maintaining their constitutional freedoms. 39:54 minutes (36.52 MB)
