Proyecto 1619: Educadores progresistas opuestos a legislación reaccionaria

first_imgPor Andy Terhune Los legisladores de derecha de 15 estados están aprobando una legislación que obligará a los profesores de las escuelas públicas a enseñar una narrativa nacionalista de la historia, que ignora la historia genocida, racista, sexista, antiinmigrante y opresiva de Estados Unidos. La legislación específica difiere entre los 15 estados, pero todos comparten el objetivo de prohibir la aplicación de la “teoría racial crítica” en la enseñanza de estudios sociales.Para Proyecto 1619, Día de Acción, 12 de junio, vaya a zinnedproject.org.Esto significa que los profesores de Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Luisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nuevo Hampshire, Carolina del Norte, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah y Virginia Occidental no podrán -y en algunos casos serán multados- enseñar sobre el papel del racismo en la conformación del sistema legal y en la creación de disparidades económicas y diferencias de rendimiento. Y no podrán explicar cómo las desigualdades que aún existen hoy en día tienen su origen en un pasado de supremacía blanca.Los racistas se oponen al Proyecto 1619Uno de los recursos curriculares a los que se oponen los legisladores conservadores es el Proyecto 1619. Su introducción dice: “El Proyecto 1619 es una iniciativa en curso por la revista The New York Times Magazine que comenzó en agosto de 2019, el 400 aniversario del inicio de la esclavitud estadounidense. Su objetivo es replantear la historia del país colocando las consecuencias de la esclavitud y las contribuciones de los estadounidenses negros en el centro mismo de nuestra narrativa nacional.” (project1619.org)La educación tradicional en Estados Unidos enseña a los estudiantes que el nacimiento del país se produjo en 1776. Esta narrativa ignora su formación como colonia de colonos, basada en el robo de tierras y el genocidio de los pueblos indígenas, y los 157 años de esclavitud que construyeron las colonias antes de 1776. Ignora el papel del trato de los esclavos y el carácter del colonialismo de colonos en la independencia política y económica de Gran Bretaña. Los legisladores republicanos están intentando prohibir el proyecto 1619 y otros muchos recursos didácticos fundamentales como éste, en un intento de prohibir una enseñanza honesta y auténtica de la historia de Estados Unidos.Muchos de estos legisladores no sólo quieren restringir los debates sobre la teoría crítica de la raza, sino que intentan limitar la educación sobre el papel del sexismo, el heterosexismo, la xenofobia y la opresión de clase a lo largo de la historia de Estados Unidos. En Missouri, la legislación propuesta prohibiría a los profesores de las escuelas públicas el uso de cualquier recurso del Proyecto 1619, del programa de estudios Learning for Justice del Southern Poverty Law Center, de Black Lives Matter at School, de Teaching for Change y del Zinn Education Project.Si tienen éxito, los profesores de estos estados se verán obligados a enseñar con libros de texto de historia blanqueados que borran las luchas y contribuciones de los pueblos oprimidos a lo largo de la historia de este país. Idaho, Iowa, Oklahoma y Tennessee han aprobado recientemente leyes que limitan severamente las formas en que los profesores pueden discutir el racismo, el sexismo, la homofobia, la inmigración, el clasismo y otros temas que los legisladores de derecha pretenden suprimir.La enseñanza de la verdadera historia de Estados UnidosOtra colección de recursos didácticos que está en peligro en estos estados es el Proyecto Educativo Zinn, que se creó con la convicción de que “a través de una mirada más atractiva y más honesta al pasado, podemos ayudar a equipar a los estudiantes -y a todos nosotros- con las herramientas analíticas para dar sentido y mejorar el mundo actual”.  Su sitio web contiene una gran cantidad de planes de lecciones y artículos descargables gratuitamente, que “hacen hincapié en el papel de los trabajadores, las mujeres, la gente de color y los movimientos sociales organizados en la configuración de la historia”. (zinnedproject.org)En respuesta a los legisladores que trabajan para prohibir sus recursos educativos, el Proyecto Educativo Zinn lanzó un compromiso para que los educadores lo firmen, diciendo que, se apruebe o no la legislación reaccionaria, se niegan a mentir a los estudiantes y seguirán enseñándoles la verdad sobre la historia de Estados Unidos.El compromiso dice: “Los educadores abajo firmantes no nos dejaremos intimidar. Continuaremos con nuestro compromiso de desarrollar un pensamiento crítico que ayude a los estudiantes a comprender mejor los problemas de nuestra sociedad y a desarrollar soluciones colectivas para esos problemas. Estamos a favor de decir la verdad y de elevar el poder de la organización y la solidaridad que nos hacen avanzar hacia una sociedad más justa”.Además, el Zinn Education Project y Black Lives Matter at School están intentando concienciar al público sobre el daño que causará la legislación propuesta, promoviendo encuentros en todo el país organizados por Rethinking Schools y Teaching for Change.Estos eventos tendrán lugar el 12 de junio en lugares que “simbolizan o reflejan la historia que los profesores tendrían que mentir u omitir si estos proyectos de ley se convierten en ley”. La concienciación pública sobre este tema es actualmente escasa, por lo que se anima a los interesados a elegir un lugar significativo y organizar una concentración, junto con miembros de la comunidad y sindicatos locales.Leyes como las aprobadas en Idaho, Iowa, Oklahoma y Tennessee obligan, por comisión u omisión, a enseñar a los alumnos una visión reaccionaria de la historia, llena de falsedades e ideas retrógradas. Todos los estudiantes merecen una educación responsable basada en la verdad y el respeto a la humanidad.Incluso los acontecimientos históricos más espantosos, repulsivos y controvertidos pueden ser analizados por los jóvenes, si se hace con un uso responsable del diálogo, la reflexión y la comunicación. Los educadores, que se dedican a enseñar la historia de Estados Unidos de forma auténtica sobre el papel que todas las formas de fanatismo y opresión han tenido en el desarrollo del país, piden a quienes están de acuerdo con ellos que se solidaricen con los profesores a los que se les niega el derecho a enseñar la verdad a sus alumnos.A la ganadora del premio Pulitzer, Nikole Hannah-Jones, le fue negada recientemente la titularidad por el Consejo de Administración de la Universidad de Carolina del Norte. Los miembros conservadores del consejo se opusieron al Proyecto 1619, que ella supervisaba. En él se expone la verdad sobre la historia de la esclavitud en Estados Unidos. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fallen tree kills Girl Scout, injures three others at Indiana’s Camp Koch

first_imgjetcityimage/iStock(CANNELTON, Ind.) — A Girl Scout was killed and three other people were injured on Monday when a tree fell on a campground in Indiana, officials said.The Perry County Sheriff’s Office said it received a call at around 11:30 a.m. local time about a tree that had fallen on several campers and volunteers at Camp Koch, the Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana’s resident camp facility, nestled along the Ohio River near the small city of Cannelton.Sheriff’s deputies and emergency responders arrived at the scene, where they found four people with injuries. The injured were taken to various area hospitals, where one of them later died, according to the sheriff’s office.The conditions of the three other patients was unknown.Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana confirmed the “tragic death” of one of its members attending camp and said it has closed Camp Koch while the incident is being investigated. The young victim’s name has not yet been released.“There is nothing we take more seriously than the safety and well-being of our girls and volunteers,” the youth organization said in a statement. “During this difficult time, the entire Girl Scout family mourns the loss of one of our girls, and we ask for privacy for the individuals and their families as they grieve and mourn this tragic loss.”Law enforcement will hold a press conference Tuesday morning to provide an update on the investigation.

Judge declares man jailed 10 days for missing jury duty as ‘totally rehabilitated’

first_imgKuzma/iStock(TAMPA, Fla.) — The Florida man who spent 10 days in jail after missing jury duty is now having his record cleared after the judge decided that he was “totally rehabilitated.”Deandre Somerville was ordered to spend time in jail, be put on probation for a year, complete 150 hours of community service, pay a $223 fine and write a letter of apology to the court.Somerville petitioned to have his record cleared and the court had granted that move on Oct. 4, after he read his apology in court, but the judge in the case issued the order vacating that finding on Oct. 7.In that order, obtained by ABC affiliate WFTS, which calls for Somerville’s record to be “immediately vacated and rescinded,” Judge John S. Kastrenakes did go through what he called “the negative facts” of the case.“No, he wasn’t late. He never showed. Neither that day or any subsequent day until a deputy sheriff served him with a summons to appear … numerous telephone calls from the Court’s chambers and the jury office were never returned,” the judge’s filing states.“He told the Court he overslept and then when he awoke decided not to call or come in because he decided it was not important. The Court found him in contempt and sentenced him,” the judge wrote.That said, it was clear to the judge about two weeks later that the 21-year-old had changed.“The young man in court on October 4th was a vastly different person from the Deandre Somerville who refused to come to court and intentionally violated his oath as a sworn juror,” the judge wrote. Kastrenakes appeared to be moved by Somerville, who he wrote has been “totally rehabilitated” and went on to extoll his character.“I firmly believe that Deandre Somerville is the type of person who can achieve anything he wants in this world. He is a thoughtful and respectful young man,” Kastrenakes wrote.He did note that “I do not believe that most individuals would have been redeemed and rehabilitated to the same extent as Mr. Somerville. Upon reflection, that redemption should be immediately rewarded by vacating any finding of contempt.”In the order, the judge maintained that “the Court also knows that it would have punished anyone who behaved the way Mr. Somerville behaved,” but the sentencing prompted outcry and disbelief from the public and criminal justice experts.Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., posted a link to an article about the case on Twitter, writing “This judge put a young black man with no prior arrests in the system for *checks notes* oversleeping. We must reform our criminal justice system, which is designed to criminalize people of color.”Marc Mauer, the executive director of non-profit group The Sentencing Project, told ABC News that this case appears to be “one of the many ripple effects of mass incarceration.”“If you consider what is the judge trying to accomplish here, it’s hard to see why 10 days in jail would be more effective than just 10 hours of community service. Ten days in jail interrupts his work life, his home life, and all for something that he clearly is now remorseful about,” Mauer said, adding that “anecdotally, I’ve never heard of anything like this before.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

“Earlier Than The Bird” Draws Holiday Shoppers

first_imgHoliday shoppers get out “Earlier Than The Bird” for a mega-shopping event in November. By MADDY VITALEIn a year when nothing much seems to be normal and virtual has become a reality, a tradition in Ocean City that may appear a bit strange to people who aren’t aware of the custom had happy shoppers strolling in downtown Asbury Avenue on Saturday toting bags filled with gifts — in their pajamas.Yes, “Earlier Than The Bird,” the resort’s shopping spree in your jammies, turned out residents and visitors alike, who share in the zany tradition in a popular event sponsored by the Downtown Merchants Association.Merchants offered a host of discounts, free doughnuts and coffee, a turkey mascot, and temperatures in the 60s delighted families.Christmas decorations created the holiday wonderland, and horse and carriage rides in the afternoon topped off the experience.Jill Kozakowski, of Ocean City, and her husband, Christian Chin, brought their children, Sebastian, 3, and Sydney, 10, to share in their yearly tradition.“We come every year. We already got so many gifts today for family,” Kozakowski noted. “We were so happy it wasn’t canceled this year since so much else was.”Jill Kozakowski, of Ocean City, and daughter, Sydney Chin, 10, get a start on their holiday shopping.Amid COVID-19, “Earlier Than The Bird, was in fact one of the few events that was still offered when others around the holidays were canceled due to social distancing requirements.“Everyone is wearing their masks and staying six feet apart,” Kozakowski said.Sydney was all smiles about her purchases. “I got a bracelet for my dad and a present for my dog,” she said.Chin, like his wife, emphasized that the event is such a good time each year.“It gets everyone out and helps get people to shop locally,” he added.Some people spent time listening to festive music playing in Mark Soifer Park across from City Hall, taking photos by Santa’s Mailbox just across from the park, and snapping pictures of families sitting in a decorative lifeguard boat.At left, Jodi LaRosa and friend and co-worker, Daria Rose, both of Ocean City, get their elf on by “Santa’s Mailbox.”Daria Rose and Jodi LaRosa, both of Ocean City, and co-workers at the Deauville Inn in Strathmere, dressed as elves to really get into the holiday spirit.They each bought some clothing from one of their favorite shops on Asbury Avenue.“It is just beautiful and great for the businesses,” Rose said.A group of friends from Cape May County said they never miss the shopping event. Like Rose and LaRosa, they dressed as elves and bought some holiday gifts.“Oh, my gosh. This has been great today,” said Patty Behrens, one of the group of friends. “I am thankful all of my friends can be together today, and I am ready to get my holiday shopping going.”People perused the shops, sat outside restaurants, sipped coffee and did some window shopping.Family members Jen, Alexandra, Jason, Charlotte and Brady Eck, of Sparta, N.J., enjoy one of the free horse and carriage rides that add to the downtown’s festive atmosphere.Friends Fionna Janson, of Somers Point, and Bobbi Sue Spinelli, of Delanco, made it a point to do a lot of shopping.“We got a lot of Christmas gifts today. We got candles, ornaments and clothing,” Janson said.Spinelli added that they also purchased something for themselves. They were sparkly face coverings.“We also got decorations,” she said.While many of the people who attended the festive event do so year after year, Ericka Ford, of Ocean City, her husband, Rich, and their son, Richie, moved to Ocean City this past year.“This is our first time,” Ericka Ford said. “We wanted to get out as a family and walk around and see what we can find.”Ericka and Rich Ford with son, Richie, enjoy a stroll down Asbury Avenue.Bobbi Sue Spinelli, of Delanco, and friend, Fionna Janson, of Somers Point, tote bags of holiday gifts.last_img read more

Greggs focuses on bakery in new high street pilot

first_imgGreggs is piloting a new type of high street store, which emphasises the retailer’s bakery roots and makes ’grab-and-go’ purchases easier, as it gears up for an accelerated round of shop openings next year.Two further ’new concept’ stores are due to open this year ahead of plans to roll-out at least 30-40 new shops in 2010 as part of Greggs’ long-term ambition to increase its estate from 1,400 stores to over 2,000.The bakery chain revealed its intentions as it announced half-year operating profits this week of £16.3m, up 8.9%. Sales grew 4.4% to £312m, although like-for-like sales were up by just 1.5%, due to the impact of the wet summer. Net profit, however, fell to £11.4m, compared to £16.2m for the comparable period last year.The new concept store in Bromley, Kent, which opened last month, features a darker colour scheme with pictures on the wall of the bread-making process and messages high-lighting the freshness of Greggs’ products. There is also more space on the shop floor for customers to browse and a greater range of impulse products that can be bought without having to be served at the counter.”We are trying to put all our latest thinking into one shop. On the back of that we’ll decide whether we’re going to roll [it] out into our existing 1,400 shops or roll it into the 600 shops going forward,” said chief executive Ken McMeikan.Greggs’ plan to centralise and simplify the business is on track, with 40% of the 164 Bakers Oven shops now rebranded as Greggs and plans to harmonise 80% of products by the end of the year on schedule. The retailer’s sandwiches and savouries have been relaunched across stores, while revamped products in the first half included yums yums, Belgian buns and two types of pasty.last_img read more
