Thank you so much everyone for all of your kind words! They mean so much to me and I’m so overwhelmed by the support that I have! You are all awesome :o)

The proficiency numbers also show what a poor job generally that conventional schools are doing.
Sylvie
01:07:53
no kidding, Richard!
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
01:08:47
What an interesting comparison!
Richard Fransham
01:09:26
The crime rates also show a correlation with poverty. Make life better for people rather than incarcerate them.

It would be interesting to see what wrap around services are available in both areas
Learning Without Borders
01:11:02
to support students and families to prevent crime etc.
Monica Brase
01:11:39
I agree because this might be some action for the group to advocate for more services.

I can’t raise my hand in reactions, but I recommend this book White Rage by a historian Carol Anderson. it shows America steps to keep people oppressed.
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
01:13:53
It also highly affects those with neurodivergence.
Cammie Justus-Smith
01:14:15
I think that one step is truly just awareness. In particular, the awareness factor (letting other youth see those numbers and letting them think on what it really means).
Learning Without Borders
01:15:08
I agree awareness is a good first step. If you can find an anomoly where there is high diversity and higher rates of success.
Michael Conley
01:15:17
I think you are quite wise to focus on the effectiveness of testing and graduation rates. Alternate paths to earning a diploma, internships and community service learning for high school students, improved and more pervasive counseling services
Learning Without Borders
01:15:27
it could inform the conversation
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
01:16:09
It would be very helpful to find numbers where there are targeted interventions. Is there anything that is addressing these patterns?
Richard Fransham
01:16:29

Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
01:17:15
Are the patterns more or less stable with alternative schooling?
Sylvie
01:20:08
Love that question, @Amanda. Wondering the same thing.
Willow Oceanseed
01:21:23
like, in areas with a lot more alternative schooling options what would these patterns look like?
Richard Fransham
01:25:47
Similarly to Fridays for Future, we need for students to walk out of school on Youth Rights Day, November 20th, to bring attention to the need to make schools more relevant.

The Children’s Voting Colloquium is promoting the idea of “virtual voters”, the power of people, like students, to influence elections even when they don’t have the right to vote. John Wall, one of its founders, will be doing a mini talk tomorrow. https://www.childrenvoting.org
