Gathering of leaders.
Each year the quality of the professional learning workshops at the Gathering of Leaders gets stronger.  This year is no exception. Sixteen workshops selected from nearly 60 proposals are available for registered participants to sign up for.
These workshops are relevant to educators from the early childhood to high school level and illuminate the Gathering's theme, "Great Schools Are Not an Accident: Successful Learning Communities for Boys and Young Men of Color." Each workshop will engage the participants in interactive, practical, and COSEBOC Standard referenced activity. They will also provide all participants with ideas, tools, and strategies to advance their work with boys and young men of color.
Gathering participants will attend two workshops, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Descriptions and expectations for each workshop are now posted on the COSEBOC website.

Concerned Christian Men Mentor and Feed 300 Boys with Monthly Man/Boy Breakfast
Black Star Logo
The Concerned Christian Men (CCM) was founded in October 1996 by George D. Glenn, a Harvard-educated native Chicagoan (graduate of Senn High School). CCM's initial and continuing focus has been to provide strong "Black Male" leadership and guidance to young Black boys living on the South Side of Chicago to assist them in becoming positive, contributing members of their communities.

CCM's Flagship activity is the monthly Man-Boy Breakfast that over 29,000 men and boys have attended since 1996 (140 breakfasts). Since April 2002 the breakfasts are held at Simeon Career Academy, a state-of-the-art vocational and academic high school. We average over 300 men and boys for our Man-Boy breakfasts.

Achievement Gaps Tied to
Income Found Widening
Black Star Logo 
March 7, 2012
The fractious debate over how much schools can counteract poverty's impact on children is far from settled, but a recently published collection of research strongly suggests that until policymakers and educators confront deepening economic and social disparities, poor children will increasingly miss out on finding a path to upward social mobility.
The achievement gap between poor children and rich children has grown significantly over the past three decades and is now nearly twice as large as the black-white gap, according to Sean F. Reardon, a Stanford University sociologist. He examined data on family income and student scores on standardized tests in reading and math spanning 1960 to 2007.
Parents Are Building Organizations
to Help Educate their Children
Whether they're organizing events, buttonholing legislators, or simply trading ideas and information, a growing number of "parent unions" are attempting to stake out a place in policy debates over education in states and districts, amid a crowded field of actors and advocates.
As the term implies, some of these organizations see themselves as countering the political might of teachers' unions, though others see the labor groups as allies. Still other parents' unions are less concerned with teacher and labor-management issues than with advancing their own tightly focused-or very broad-agendas. Those agendas include improving school gifted-and-talented programs, for instance, and closing achievement gaps between minority and white students.

Romney Loses Again! Who Will He Fire?

The National Memo

The putative frontrunner made no public appearances on Tuesday night after an embarrassing third place finish in both the Alabama and Mississippi Republican presidential primary elections -- even though the Romney campaign had been predicting a victory. Instead, his headquarters dispatched a written statement that congratulated Rick Santorum for winning both states, while reminding people of his huge delegate advantage. It was an unusual way to try to demonstrate confidence. READ MORE

Targeted online advertising is nothing new. (As anyone who has changed their Facebook status to "engaged" can tell you, a simple update can bring a deluge of new ads.) But political campaigns and advocacy groups are increasingly adopting the same microtargeting tactics that companies use. READ MORE

What do you get when 70 or so Republicans gather in a restaurant-bar? In American Samoa, you get a presidential caucus worth 9 full delegates to the Republican National Convention. (The famous "first in the nation" New Hampshire primary, on the other hand, awards 12 delegates.) The U.S. territory, located about 2,300 miles south of Hawaii, got its chance Tuesday to vote on a presidential candidate. And it didn't even conflict with happy hour. READ MORE

To hear some people tell it, the United States hovers on the brink of tyranny. President Obama has seized dictatorial power to murder any American citizen he secretly deems a terrorist. Attorney General Eric Holder's craven rationalization of the so-called "CIA assassination" of U.S.-born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in the wilds of Yemen last September struck some as the veritable death-knell of democracy.

Sounds grave, doesn't it? Then why are so many Americans, myself included, so blasé about it? READ MORE

Spin it any way you want. Justify it, rationalize it, chalk it up to the exigencies of war. And at the end, the fact remains: A United States citizen is dead and the United States government killed him. Without trial. Without due process. Without hesitation. And many of those who loudly deplored George W. Bush for smaller excesses seem content to allow Barack Obama this larger one. READ MORE

U.S. Representative Bob Turner, who famously won ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner's Congressional seat last September in a special election, announced on Tuesday that he will challenge incumbent Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand in the 2012 Senate election. So Turner, a former producer of the Rush Limbaugh radio program -- whose host recently called a law student a "slut" because she supported birth control coverage -- will be running against the woman who succeeded Hillary Clinton in the Senate.
