The Constitution, the Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8
 
13:04
In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

That's Why School Lessons Last Exactly 45 Minutes
 
10:11
Have you ever wondered why your classes are so long? If you’re sitting in class, bored out of your mind, wondering who came up with the idea of making the lesson so long, you’re about to find out! Some people claim that 9-year-old children, for example, can concentrate for an hour. However, according to The Washington Post, physiologically, after just 20 minutes of sitting, the brain starts to receive less oxygen and glucose, which decreases concentration. We're about to tell you how class duration was determined and about the intense debate surrounding class timings, which started centuries ago and is still raging! TIMESTAMPS: Who to blame for having to get up so early to head to school 0:59 How the 45-minute system was established 2:09 How the USA established their education system 4:43 The “A Nation at Risk” report 6:07 Strong debate 7:28 #schoolsystem #educationsystem #circadianrhythm Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The educational system of the country you live in might have been inspired by the Prussian school system. So if you live in the United States, Germany, Finland, or the UK, you’re affected by the decisions Prussia made in the 19th century. - Back then, critics weren’t so concerned about children having time to chill, but they were concerned that digestion seemed to cause an afternoon lull after lunch, preventing children from concentrating. - The circadian clock expects you to digest food at certain times, so your energy levels dip between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. - In the US, the state of Massachusetts was trying to find the best educational approach. Horace Mann, the secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education at the time, was trying to understand why children were so unruly at school. - Massachusetts became the first state to provide all citizens with free education. During the next 66 years, all the other states followed its example and taught the Prussian way. - In 1983, the US government called for education reform in the “A Nation at Risk” report. The report declared that the educational system was starting to slide. - The conclusion was that schools would start to use computers and new software, but the system itself remains largely unchanged. - The Prussian system has been adopted as a “one size fits all” approach, and it has been criticized for this reason. Not everyone learns at the same pace and with the same methodology because we’re all different!

How America's public schools keep kids in poverty | Kandice Sumner
 
13:51
Why should a good education be exclusive to rich kids? Schools in low-income neighborhoods across the US, specifically in communities of color, lack resources that are standard at wealthier schools -- things like musical instruments, new books, healthy school lunches and soccer fields -- and this has a real impact on the potential of students. Kandice Sumner sees the disparity every day in her classroom in Boston. In this inspiring talk, she asks us to face facts -- and change them.

Helping Immigrant Students Adjust to New Schools, New Lives
 
03:12
A growing community of Somali immigrant families in St. Cloud, Minn., has presented multiple challenges for local educators who have been grappling with not only how to meet the students' linguistic and educational needs, but also how to create a learning environment where they feel safe and welcome. Confronting anti-Muslim sentiment both inside the district and outside in the broader community has been especially vexing. Most of the Somali community in St. Cloud is Muslim. To help build linguistic and cultural bridges between educators and the Somali community, school district leaders hired Ahmed Hassan and Bishar Hassan. The two Somali brothers, who are bilingual communication support specialists, have duties that range from providing verbal and written translations into Somali and English, advising students, and helping both Somali residents and school district staff members navigate unfamiliar cultural terrain. The brothers are also leaders in St. Cloud's Somali community.

Students needed to leave school in the summer in order to work on the farm alongside their families. The U.S. is no longer the agrarian nation that it once was, so why do students still get the summer off from school?

The Origins of the American Public Education System: Horace Mann & the Prussian Model of Obedience
 
08:20
The American Public Education System was directly imported from Prussia (modern day Germany). This model of "free and compulsory" education was designed by the Prussian Emperor, in order to generate obedient workers and soldiers who would not question his authority. In the 1830's, American Lawmaker Horace Mann visited Prussia and researched its education methodology. He was infatuated with the emperor's method of eliminating free thought from his subjects and designed an education system for Massachusetts directly based on these concepts. The movement then quickly spread nationally. Horace Mann said, "The State is the father of children." Do you want your children growing up in total submission to the State?

A Japanese Method to Develop Creativity in Kids
 
09:17
Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Japanese people are known for their intelligence, politeness, and wellness. Why is this nation so unique and different from the rest of the world? It seems we’ve found the answer – they have an incredibly cool education system and unique teaching methods! Watch till the end – there is a small but brilliant bonus for you. Let’s start with a unique Japanese method in the schools for developing creativity in kids. We believe that the whole world needs to adopt! It’s called “Nameless paints.” Japanese designers named Yusuke Imai and Ayami Moteki created an unusual set to teach kids colors and painting. This fantastic set won the 2012 Kokuyo Design Award. Let’s see how it works. “Nameless paints” includes ten tubes that don’t have color names such as “yellow,” “blue,” or “green.” Instead, there are only spots of a particular color or colors on each tube. As you can see, the spots are also different sizes. The designers’ aim is to change the way kids think and learn. They want children to understand what shade they will get if they mix certain colors. For instance, a child looks at the tube with two spots: pink and blue. He doesn’t know what color hides inside. He squeezes the tube and gets… purple color! So, as a result, the kid learns that the same amounts of pink and blue paints create purple. Here’s another example – a tube with a big blue spot and small pink one. It means if you mix a small amount of the pink color and a large amount of the blue color, you’ll get dark-blue color. Interesting, right? As you can see, each tube hides a particular color inside. Pink, yellow, blue, purple, red, dark green, dark blue, orange, light-green, and black. However, to get one of these shades, the child should think about which colors create it. As a result, they learn how to create new colors and how to mix them. It’s an easy and fun way to understand the color theory. Recent studies have shown that free thinking is an attribute that a person can acquire over time, and the schools play the most important part in developing creativity. Now, here’s the bonus – 10 brilliant features of the Japanese education system the whole world needs to adopt. The success of the Japanese culture is very simple: they put a lot of effort and time in the education system trying to make it not only useful but also fun. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

American Education: Problems and Solutions
 
18:02
Of all the public policies on offer for either general interest or academic research, education is nearest and dearest to my heart. This segment broaches the systemic problems in the American education system and explores potential policy solutions to said problems. Special emphasis is placed on: (1) the dire need for a revamp of k-12 civics education and (2) the ineffectiveness of standardized testing, (3) the revolving door of the standardized testing industry, & (4) using portfolio assessment in lieu of standardized testing. The Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), am Annenberg Public Policy Center survey of basic civic literacy, and the dynamics of federalism are explored. I also share some of the findings from my program evaluation of the federal education No Child Left Behind law, which was repealed (in parts) and replaced with the Every Student Succeeds Act in December of 2015.

Education For Whom and For What?
 
01:59:28
Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist, spoke at the University of Arizona on Feb. 8, 2012. His lecture, "Education: For Whom and For What?" featured a talk on the state of higher education, followed by a question-and-answer session. Chomsky, an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked for more than 50 years, has been concerned with a range of education-related issues in recent years. Among them: How do we characterize the contemporary state of the American education system? What happens to the quality of education when public universities become more privatized? Are public universities in danger of being converted into facilities that produce graduates-as-commodities for the job market? What is the role of activism in education? With unprecedented tuition increases and budget struggles occurring across American campuses, these are questions that are more relevant than ever.

School House Rock -The Preamble
 
03:02
During the 1970's when this cartoon was aired for the first time to the American people; the American society was a good society that put America first. We taught our children what it is to be an American. Today that no longer is a priority; unlimited immigration without assimilation and anti-American Communists that refuse to follow the U.S. Constitution are destroying what was once a great Nation. And what do we do? Nothing. We are no longer a Nation, we have become a Country filled with aliens from every third world country from across the globe. I don't believe America will survive as the Nation our founding fathers left us; "One Nation under God indivisible with Liberty and Justice for All" , unless we as a "people" WAKE UP!!! THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON by Rudyard Kipling It was not part of their blood, It came to them very late, With long arrears to make good, When the Saxon began to hate. They were not easily moved, They were icy -- willing to wait Till every count should be proved, Ere the Saxon began to hate. Their voices were even and low. Their eyes were level and straight. There was neither sign nor show When the Saxon began to hate. It was not preached to the crowd. It was not taught by the state. No man spoke it aloud When the Saxon began to hate. It was not suddently bred. It will not swiftly abate. Through the chilled years ahead, When Time shall count from the date That the Saxon began to hate.

Racism, School Desegregation Laws and the Civil Rights Movement in the United States
 
51:49
The African-American Civil Rights Movement (1955--1968) refers to the social movements in the United States aimed at outlawing racial discrimination against black Americans and restoring voting rights to them. This article covers the phase of the movement between 1955 and 1968, particularly in the South. The emergence of the Black Power Movement, which lasted roughly from 1966 to 1975, enlarged the aims of the Civil Rights Movement to include racial dignity, economic and political self-sufficiency, and freedom from oppression by white Americans. The movement was characterized by major campaigns of civil resistance. Between 1955 and 1968, acts of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience produced crisis situations between activists and government authorities. Federal, state, and local governments, businesses, and communities often had to respond immediately to these situations that highlighted the inequities faced by African Americans. Forms of protest and/or civil disobedience included boycotts such as the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott (1955--1956) in Alabama; "sit-ins" such as the influential Greensboro sit-ins (1960) in North Carolina; marches, such as the Selma to Montgomery marches (1965) in Alabama; and a wide range of other nonviolent activities. Noted legislative achievements during this phase of the Civil Rights Movement were passage of Civil Rights Act of 1964, that banned discrimination based on "race, color, religion, or national origin" in employment practices and public accommodations; the Voting Rights Act of 1965, that restored and protected voting rights; the Immigration and Nationality Services Act of 1965, that dramatically opened entry to the U.S. to immigrants other than traditional European groups; and the Fair Housing Act of 1968, that banned discrimination in the sale or rental of housing. African Americans re-entered politics in the South, and across the country young people were inspired to action. Desegregation busing in the United States (also known as forced busing or simply busing) is the practice of assigning and transporting students to schools in such a manner as to redress prior racial segregation of schools, or to overcome the effects of residential segregation on local school demographics. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desegregation_busing_in_the_United_States

These Kids Live In Mexico But Cross The Border Daily To Go To School In The US
 
09:29
A National Murrow Award Winner. Columbus is a village in New Mexico of roughly 1,800 people that sits along the U.S.-Mexico border. On the opposite side you'll find the town of Palomas, Mexico. Many people here have relatives on both sides of the border. What makes this region unique is the fact that hundreds of children cross the border daily to attend school in America. All of them are U.S. citizens.

The US Constitution - Breaking Down the Articles
 
13:20
PowerPoint available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy The video is a quick overview of the sections or Articles of the US Constitution. Students will learn about Article I and it's establishing the powers and structure of the US Legislative Branch known as Congress. Article II establishes and outlines the Executive Branch headed up by the President of the United States. Article III established the Judicial Branch headed by the US Supreme Court. Article IV discusses the relationship between the Federal Government and state governments known as federalism. Article V establishes how to create amendments to the Constitution. Article VI is known as the "Supremacy Clause" which establishes that federal law is more powerful than state law. Article VII outlines the way the US Constitution was ratified. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class. ***For noncommercial, educational, and archival purposes under Law of Fair Use as provided in section 107 of the US copyright law.

Why is College So Expensive?
 
04:54
College is a good deal, but it could be a much better deal. A combination of factors have driven the costs of higher education in America to increase extremely quickly, pricing some people out of an education and building over a trillion dollars in student loan debt. So why? Why did those costs increase and what are schools spending all that fat cash on. Turns out, it's pretty complicated.

Widely considered one of the most corrupt governors in American history, he actually got caught for racketeering, extortion, money laundering, mail fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy. He went to federal prison for eight years. He was unapologetic about receiving illegal campaign donations. He was accused of obstruction of justice and bribery. The only reason why Edwards is not higher up on my list is because is dedication to civil rights and protecting minorities and the poor. #9 Joel Aldrich Matteson Oh Louisiana and Illinois. You both have a long history of electing corrupt and just, plain horrible governors. And Matteson is one of them. Governor of Illinois from 1853 to 1857, he actually had a few accomplishments during his term. This was when Illinois began public education, and Matteson oversaw a strong economy and the reduction of the state’s debt. However, after he got out of office people started to find out about his shadiness.

Amy Stuart Wells, Ph.D.— Professor and Researcher on Equality in Education (West '80 )
 
06:35
A world-class educator, researcher, journalist and author, Amy Stuart Wells has made her mark in the field of education exploring issues of racial segregation and inequality. She is a professor of sociology and education at Teachers College-Columbia University, where she is also the director of the Center for Understanding Race and Education (CURE). She also directs the Ford Foundation's "Building Knowledge for Social Justice" project, which seeks to develop scholarship and communication strategies that can shift public understanding of the real causes of inequality in the U.S. Her articles on education and social policy have been published in many high-profile publications and newspapers. She is also the authors of several books, including one about the St. Louis inter-district school desegregation program, Stepping Over the Color Line: African American Students in White Suburban Schools (1997, Yale University Press). Wells has participated in state and federal congressional briefings on education during her career and has received many awards recognizing her contributions and achievements.
On Black People and (Higher) Education
 
31:13
The American education system is extremely broken, and the issues are only compounded when you are Black. Contrary to popular belief, education is not going to magically save Black people from racism, especially when every level of the academic system is designed to uphold and continue the cycle of white supremacy. Operating within academia is still operating within white supremacy, and we need to navigate those waters very, very carefully. Thanks for watching.

How U.S. Involvement In Central America Led To a Border Crisis| AJ+
 
12:36
Thousands of Central American refugees and migrants have been coming to the Mexico-U.S. border for almost 40 years – and in spring of 2018, the Trump administration enacted a “zero-tolerance” policy that led to the arrest of any and all refugees and migrants attempting to cross the border into the United States. The most controversial aspect of the policy's enforcement was the forced separation of parents from their children. While much of the conversation has focused on Central Americans escaping violence, there hasn't been much on why there's so much violence in the region to begin with. The story? Almost 200 years of U.S. intervention. EDIT: We messed up on certain map animations, excluding the nation of Belize - it was unintentional. Thanks to everyone who highlighted this to us.

Comparing Constitutions: Florida's State Constitution vs the U.S. Constitution
 
17:40
PowerPoint available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This lesson provides a comparison between the U.S. Constitution and the Florida State Constitution. This lesson teaches students about the similarities include: both contain a preamble, articles, create three branches of government, and reflect separation of powers. Students will learn how Florida is on its sixth constitution with its current version established in 1968, and how slavery affected the number of versions. They will also be introduced to the Florida Declaration of Rights and its more extensive list of rights. The lesson looks in-depth look at the Preambles and how both start with those three famous words – “we the people” and their implications of popular sovereignty and consent of the governed. Students will look at the how the Florida Constitution establishes a bicameral legislature with a state Senate and House of Representatives. They will learn how unlike the Federal Executive Branch, the Florida Executive Branch has an elected Cabinet which shares more executive powers. A review of the State of the Union is provided to compare with the state executive’s State of the State speech. Students will look at the Florida Supreme Court with candidates chosen by a commission and who are voted on by the electorate as to whether they will “retain” their positions. Students will learn how the U.S. Constitution is much more vague and short compared to the Florida Constitution which is ten times as long. Finally students will look at the different ways in which amendments are added to the Florida Constitution which include legislative proposals, the Florida Constitutional Commissions meeting every twenty years to suggest amendments and revisions and finally how all constitutional amendments must be ratified by the electorate. A reminder is provided that while these two constitutions complement each other, the Supremacy Clause clarifies what will happen if a conflict arises between the two documents. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.

In the future, Dr. Umar also would like to extend this school to include female students in their own residential school.
10 Most Unusual Schools In The World
 
06:04
Top 10 of the most unique, revolutionary and some even bizarre classrooms where elementary and high school students attend around the world. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg Description: School means different things to different people and no two academic experiences are totally alike. Even so, most students can share a common notion of what constitutes a relatively ‘normal’ academic experience. There’s the too-early morning bell, the cramped, uncomfortable desks, the omnipresent chalk board, the all-too-short lunch period and, of course, the endless piles of homework crammed into an over-stuffed, heavy knapsack. Generally, there is something of a universality to the shape, structure and style of schools. These elements are so intrinsically tied to the experience of going to school that they remained burned into your consciousness, even many years after graduation. But it’s important to recognize that the educational experiences that may be familiar to you aren’t shared everywhere. Sometimes out of a situational necessity and sometimes simply in order to offer something new, going to school can mean something entirely different to particular student. Indeed, you can find all kinds of varied scholastic institutions both beyond American borders and, in some cases, inside of them. Places of education, after all, don’t carry any required, mandatory qualities outside of teachers passing along knowledge and information to pupils within four walls. And, as we will see over the course of this list, the teaching doesn’t even need to take place within four walls. Just as they say that home is where the heart is, it can also be said that school is where the learning is. Despite some of the standardized elements to learning institutions with which we’ve become familiar, some schools recognize that you can’t reach all students in the same way. Students thrive within a variety of different environments with messages that are transmitted through various means. Some are visual learners, some are oral. Some prefer a classroom settings, while others do their best work amidst a less traditional environment. Some learn best from a textbook, some through current digital tools. And some seem to do their best learning from a boat, but we’ll get to that in a minute. The point is that there are some weird classroom settings out there – and that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Learning can thrive in any setting, with some unique surroundings often providing inspiration. The Sinarmas World Academy in Indonesia, for example, offers students a learning environment that includes a scenic campus featuring a stunning courtyard, a domed pathway, a cutting edge media library and a state-of-the-art performing arts center. Other educational locales set themselves apart through their course material, perhaps most notably a school in Spain that teaches lessons in the world’s oldest profession. The following list may not include any classes in prostitution, but it does feature plenty of school settings that don’t look a thing like your alma mater. Education takes on a decidedly different look when it takes place in fresh, invigorating surroundings, or when it covers lessons that extend beyond basic reading, writing and arithmetic. Here are 10 of the most unique schools in the world.

What is EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY? What does EDUCATIONAL EQUALITY mean? EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY meaning
 
09:08
What is EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY? What does EDUCATIONAL EQUALITY mean? EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY meaning - EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY definition - EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Educational Inequality is the unequal distribution of academic resources, including but not limited to; school funding, qualified and experienced Teachers, books, and technologies to socially excluded communities. These communities tend to be historically disadvantaged and oppressed. More times than not, individuals belonging to these marginalized groups are also denied access to the schools with abundant resources. Inequality leads to major differences in the educational success or efficacy of these individuals and ultimately suppresses social and economic mobility. See Statistic sections for more information. Measuring educational efficacy varies by Country and even provinces/states within the Country. Generally, grades, GPA scores, test scores, dropout rates, college entrance statistics, and college completion rates are used to measure educational success. These are measures of an individual’s academic performance ability. When determining what should be measured in terms of the educational success of an individual, many scholars and academics suggest that GPAs, test scores, and other measures of performance ability are not the only useful tools in determining efficacy. In addition to academic performance, attainment of learning objectives, acquisition of desired skills and competencies, satisfaction, persistence, and post-college performance should all be measured and accounted for when determining the educational success of individuals. Scholars argue that academic achievement is only the direct result of attaining learning objectives and acquiring desired skills and competencies. To accurately measure educational efficacy, it is imperative to separate academic achievement because it captures only a students’ performance ability and not necessarily their learning or ability to effectively use what they have learned. Much of educational inequality is attributed to economic disparities that often falls along racial lines and much modern conversation about educational equity conflates the two, showing how they are inseparable from residential location and, more recently, language. Educational inequality between white students and minority students continues to perpetuate social and economic inequality. Throughout the world, there have been continuous attempts to reform education at all levels. With different causes that are deeply rooted in history, society, and culture, this inequality is difficult to eradicate. Although difficult, education is vital to society’s movement forward. It promotes “Citizenship, identity, equality of opportunity and social inclusion, social cohesion as well as economic growth and employment” and for these reasons, equality is widely promoted. Unequal educational outcomes are attributed to several variables, including family of origin, gender, and social class. Achievement, earnings, health status, and political participation also contribute to educational inequality within the United States and other countries. Family background In Harvard's "Civil Rights Project", Lee and Orfield identify family background as the most influential factor in student achievement. A correlation exists between the academic success of parents with the academic success of their children. Only 11% of children from the bottom fifth earn a college degree while 80% of the top fifth earn one. Linked with resources, white students tend to have more educated parents than students from minority families. This translates to a home-life that is more supportive of educational success. This often leads to them receiving more at-home help, have more books in their home, attend more libraries, and engage in more intellectually intensive conversations. Children, then, enter school at different levels. Poor students are behind in verbal memory, vocabulary, math and reading achievement, and have more behavior problems. This leads to their placement in different level classes that tracks them. These courses almost always demand less from their students, creating a group that is conditioned to lack educational drive. These courses are generally non-college bound and are taught by less qualified teachers.

[Watch in 1080p] TL;DR - The GRE is trash. // For over 80 years, the popular standardized test known as the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) has been essentially scamming students, professionals and schools out of gender, racial & socioeconomic diversity in Higher Education through structural and institutionalized barriers.

Nineteen-year-old Trey Clayton of Sarah, Miss., was just one of the tens of thousands of students paddled in schools in a given year. But, in his case, the consequences were especially harsh. His 2011 paddling led to serious injuries that caused him to miss weeks of school and important tests toward the end of his 8th grade year. He was held back that year and, ultimately, he dropped out of school. Education Week Video talked with Trey about his experience and his feelings now about corporal punishment in schools.
