My Opinion on the US Supreme Court’s Decision: On Guns

No Comments

I think the Republican lead SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) is now party to the business of killing Black people–IF nothing changes with policing.  Their decision concerning New York gun laws has made it more of a problem for people of color to stand their ground against police, who either misuse or misinterpret their authority, like White-Americans do.  (Because as we have seen in videos, they rarely get shot)

I didn’t think their jobs were to manipulate the laws of this land.  They’ve seemingly have done that on several occasions.  So–I guess there is no more settled law.

Police are already claiming they fear for their lives when African-Americans breathe wrong or turn to walk away from a situation escalated by the police.  Now, with this new ruling by the Supreme Court about concealed weapons, I believe Read More

Hey Everybody.  Happy Friday!  Mi Coterie is my new name for y’all by the way.  That’s because I feel like you are my circle.  You’ve taken the time to look at my content and have helped me grow my audience on other platforms… and I appreciate you.  We have a connection.  And, I wish the best for you.

I was doing some reading earlier in the Word, and this idea came about in trying to be more friendly.  In Proverbs 18:24, is says that “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”  I’m hoping we can be friends like that.👍🏾 In other thoughts…

Robocalls Must Stop! 😡

Comments are closed.

Robocalls must stop!!!  Letting companies make pre-recorded automated calls is one of the worst things that has ever happened in this nation.  That, along with the misleading Medicare/Medicaid commercials on tv.

I thought Klobuchar and Crapo Bill was going to help H.R. 3375 (Stopping Bad Robocalls Act).  But the calls keep coming!

If those calls are going to be made, there should be real representatives on the other end to hear the fury of disturbed people trying to rest and relax but can’t after receiving continued multiple calls even after they’ve requested them to stop.

Why do the calls keep coming?  I’m glad the questioned is asked… probably because someone is stuffing the pockets of elected officials!  I should not have to bear the burden of receiving annoying calls on a phone that I own.  I have a solution.  Make businesses pay a nickel (yes 5 cents) to every number they call.  At least people would be compensated a little for their troubles.  What do you think? 🙂

Let your choice be made known below: Thumbs Up= Get rid of robocalls | Thumbs Down: Keep ’em

I think “Personalized Education” is going to be the new “School Model”

With Covid still going on, it’s possible that there will be more home schooling, or distance learning.  I’ve spoken on this before; but I’ll talk about it again now.  I believe we really need to rethink how we educate in America.  In my opinion, designer, self-paced, personalized education is going to become the norm.

Acknowledging Reasons to Consider Personalized Education

I agree that there should be national standards. A basic, minimal core of topics should be taught and mastered.  But, the way that they are taught should be subjective. In my opinion, a few things need to be considered.

  • Some schools weren’t that great prior to Covid, in educating students.
  • People often learn in different ways.
  • People catch on to concepts and learning material at different speeds and sometimes it’s better in different settings or learning environments.

Possible Changes to Address Issues

Having said that, I think the ultimate role teachers and instructors will play is that of a coach or counselor to the learning experience.  And, perhaps the brick and mortar school buildings will ultimately serve as high end libraries or centers for socializing and gatherings instead of the main location for instruction. 

Welcome to the new school!  It will probably resemble what we now have, but void of actual classrooms.  They’ll become more like the after-school PTA meetings –where parents come in and talk with the teachers about certain things for a few moments before moving on to the next group discussion.

Schools could even become small museum type structures—housing various exhibits pertaining to the local area and consisting of knowledge rooms equipped with slide shows and automated briefings.

Considerations

We have to realize that communicable diseases aren’t the only occurrences that can shut down or stop traditional learning.  Climate change can also play a disruptive role in hindering the learning experience.  So, it would seem best to keep working on improving the distance learning model now, rather wait until the next event to try to pick up where it was left off from the last .   

A personalized learning model could afford each student/learner the opportunity to create an environment which best suits them and their circumstances.

I saw this article from Educations.com and thought it was a good resource about Distance Learning.  5 Reasons Why Online Learning is the Future of Education.

What do you think?  Would it be advantageous to continue with distance learning?  What subjects would you think could be helpful in completing the curriculum to prepare learners for the future?
