PHILADELPHIA, PA (USA) -- 27 March 2012 – Inspiring our children – our future – our bridge to the future – to excel academically and “want more, do more, and be more” has become one of the Millennium’s daunting challenges for educators, school administrators, parents, and school districts throughout the United States. Mrs. Connie Grier, an educator, school administrator, and Thought Leader, has launched The Respect Alliance (www.therespectalliance.org) -- an organization that moves parents and other key stakeholders into the education equation to create an environment that provides our children – our future – our bridge to the future – with rigorous academic training, well-honed analytical skills, a thirst for knowledge, and a strong desire to “want more, be more, and do more”. Heralded by many as a national model for educational leadership, The Respect Alliance creates a partnership between parents, educators, and school administrators – key stakeholders – for the purposes of supporting student achievement and academic excellence.

“Parents are essential educational partners who are necessary for student achievement. The RESPECT Alliance is moving the focus of parental involvement in education to one of direct parent-to-school relationships. We have individuals on board who each have over 15 years experience in the School District of Philadelphia along with ancillary partners who have worked with the School District of Philadelphia who are using their individual and collective expertise and experience to create a student-community-family collaboration. Some of the services that we offer which, by the way, are provided at no cost include professional development on educational issues – home supports for students, PSSA and other state mandated testing strategies, parents events in community locations throughout the tri-state area, and e-consultations,” remarked Mrs. Grier when reached for comment.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
