As culturally-diverse students feel trapped in failing public schools and abandoned by the system school choice offers a way out and a way up for students who have not succeeded in existing public schools. Many of the intractable problems that plague culturally diverse students are deeply rooted in the poverty, unemployment, crime, racism, and cultural differences that pervade the neighborhoods around them. Educators who work in our nation's schools represent the conscience of a society because they shape the conditions under which future generations learn about themselves and their relationships to others in the world. Educators, families and community members need to reinvigorate the language, social relations, and politics of schooling. We need to address the issues of school culture, poverty and violence. We need to look at new and future trends in education. Our goal is to achieve results. Parents, teachers and students must come together to make a difference. Ideas and people can change the course of history."

The Winds of Change Reg O "Brien is an American hero wounded in Vietnam. He returns to the US where he finds true love with Navy Captain Sadie Morgan, his doctor at Walter Reed Hospital. His story follows homeland battles against organized crime and terrorists that attempts to corrupt US forces and private industry. His victories lead him to the US Senate and the inner circle of power with the Whitehouse as its hub. After he returns home, he decides to attend the Naval War College when he recuperates from his wounds. He took standard courses in the first few semesters and then specialized in Warfare Analysis and Research. Trained to develop strategic concepts to advise the Chief of Naval Operations, the advanced courses led him to a position in Naval Intelligence. He fights corruption in the military and on the streets of America. His success leads him to an advisory position with the CIA and the FBI where he helps fight the flow of drugs into the United States. In so doing, he assists in the take down of Mafia kingpins and the Terrorist, who are using drug money to advance their cause.Please read random paragraphs from The Winds of Change.Once he started his student days at the Naval War College, his workload was extremely heavy, but it was what he wanted to do. He took courses in Warfare Analysis and Research, International Law, Naval Intelligence, and Maritime Strategy. Before he knew it, the first year flashed by with only one major interruption to his training and that was orders to report to Washington. Reg attended a function at the White House; the President of the United States presented him with the Medal of Honor, and at the same time, promoted him to Lieutenant Commander. It was a proud moment for the entire O "Brien family. Chuck and Lynda came up from Florida for the presentation and someone new to the family also attended as Reg "s guest.The Guantanamo Sting turned out to be the biggest take down of not only the Catroni family from New York City, but seventeen Navy officers located in the US, Guantanamo Bay, and several bases in Europe. Most of the Navy officers ended up doing time at Leavenworth, the military prison. Elias "s fears proved to have a solid foundation when two NCIS officers were included in the disgraced group of corrupt officers. To top it off, it was icing on the cake, when the investigation proved that the poppies for the heroin came from Iran. The profits funneled to terrorist "s organizations that had been involved in hijacking American planes and attacks on innocent American civilians visiting Europe. Hundreds of Americans had died in hijackings and literally millions of American youth had suffered the horrendous pain of drug addiction.The CIA became involved in the Guantanamo Sting because of the terrorist connections. Several heroin labs in Iran exploded mysteriously. A definite outbreak of deathly food poisoning in the terrorist training camps in both Iran and Libya also took place. Persons unknown depleted the secret bank accounts in Switzerland of those terrorist organizations. The Swiss bankers cooperated and the CIA handed over compromising pictures of the Bankers and their mistresses in return.I did my duty in Vietnam, because I had sworn an oath to serve and protect my country. It would have been easier to play the saxophone in a military band, where the worst damage I could have done is hit a wrong note at an officer "s dance or got a split lip if a drunk banged into me while I was playing the sax. On the other hand, I could have joined the National Guard, became a pilot, and then simply walked away from my obligations, when the going looked like it was going to get tough. Yes, I could have, if my family had the connections, and I had the desire to cleanse my records.

The 1960s were a tumultuous period in the history of Africa as one country after another won independence from the colonial powers. This was particularly true of Tanzania as it sought to carve out a role for itself between conflicting European and inter-African interests. It was in these extraordinary times that Al Noor Kassum rose to become a prominent political figure in newly independent Tanzania. Hand-picked by Julius Nyerere - later to become the country's first President - to run for elections on a Tanganyika African National Union ticket, he embarked on a career that brought him to prominence nationally and internationally. Africa's Winds of Change documents the changes that have taken place in Tanzania from the middle of the 20th century to the present day, through the prism of an East African Asian experience. The author sheds new light on the character and legacy of Julius Nyerere, who emerges as radically different from the stereotypical anti-Western firebrand which became his image in the West. Africa's Winds of Change offers a fascinating personal history of a unique African nation at a critical stage in its development.

We find ourselves engulfed in a sea of changes: political corruption, business mismanagement, stock market declines, reductions in health and other social programs, and the ever present spectre of war in the world. In the face of dwindling employment opportunities, lower wages, rising costs for everything, including higher education - our young people are often discouraged, disillusioned and demoralized. Those of us approaching retirement may feel the same way, as we watch our investments shrinking instead of growing, our pension benefits being reduced in one way or another, while at the same time our capabilities are diminishing, and opportunities for re-training and re-employment approach zero. Expectations we once had are seen to be based on very shaky foundations. We believed that we could all make it if we worked hard enough, did our homework, got a good education, knew the right people, played our cards right, and didn't rock the boat! In this process we learned self-reliance, creative thinking, positive thinking, how to be a team player, and self-judgement (including self-evaluation). So when our house of cards collapses (as inevitably it does) we are bereft. We are full of self-blame, guilt, shame, and eventually anger, blaming of others, feelings of victimization, and for some, feelings of revenge and then acts of violence. This is and has been our human story. My friend and mentor Kathleen Macloud, for over twenty years up to her death in 2002, gently and lovingly taught me about God's love for me. This is a very different story - one of hope and strength and healing. We do have a choice. We can keep on doing what we're doing that isn't working (a definition of insanity), or we can start to build our lives on a solid foundation - a spiritual foundation. That is Kathleen's story. This is an "owner's manual" to show us how to find our way back to God. Karen E. May

Exploring the remarkable political and economic changes sweeping Southeast Asia, the authors take as their starting point the trend,albeit uneven,toward democratization. They focus specifically on Asian democracy,'" a form that has been adapted by Southeast Asians to suit their own particular needs.This book begins by building a framework for understanding democracy in its broadest sense. The authors investigate the uniquely Asian style of democracy, which borrows democratic political institutions and meshes them with the cultural patterns specific to each country. In separate chapters, the authors trace the evolutionary historical processes within each country, as well as citizen participation, electoral practices, and civil liberties. The chapters end with an assessment of the prospects for democracy in that nation as well as an evaluation of whether democratic regimes are necessary for developing successful economies and societies in the new international era.

Grant, who explains to Lincoln his strategy of attacking the South at all points simultaneously, thereby preventing the South from reinforcing threatened points by shifting troops. Grant's plan of "total war"-thousands of families driven from their homes in despair-is designed not only to defeat the armies of the Confederacy, but also to take the will to fight from the Southern population. He works in conjunction with William Sherman and George Thomas in the West, Philip Sheridan in the Shenandoah Valley, and George Meade in the East. In The Winds of Change, you can experience the conflicts and intrigue encountered by President Lincoln and his trusted generals as lives are lost in battle and strategies are revised to ensure victory.
