Although humans consider themselves higher than all other animals, they commit acts which not even the wildest beasts known to man have ever committed.
Hanging is the most practiced punishment in the world and is still prevalent in many parts of the world. While this is no longer practised in the western world, it still exists in the developing world. Here the prisoner is made to stand in front of a firing squad which opens fire on the command of an officer. This has been banned all over the world but was once practiced widely, especially in the United State of America for prisoners sentenced to death. Alan Garrec is the founder of 118 Taxi - UK's largest taxi directory, a business linking people who need a taxi but don't know which number to ring. Alan said he started the company after a friend of his was assaulted in an unlicensed taxi at university. His company has gone to join forces with over 11,000 taxi firms nationwide to offer a service manned by a call centre and using a national telephone number 118 8294, thus spelling out 118 TAXI on a telephone’s keypad. The service operates simply by asking for the customer’s location, before putting them through to a local licensed taxi company in that area.
In what proved to be a very reflective conversation, Education Dive got his thoughts on his legacy, his regrets, and the current issues plaguing the Chicago school system. ARNE DUNCAN: No bill is perfect, but we are very pleased with how that bill turned out in terms of our values.
Historically, in terms of reaction to No Child Left Behind—this is an unintended consequence, but it happens — many states dumbed down standards. And now, in the law of the nation, you have to have high standards. I always thought that there was too much focus on just a single test score in No Child Left Behind. There will be states with imperfections, it shouldn’t hurt teachers to be challenged. You’ve said that some of the reforms you spearheaded need 10-15 years to play out and show results, so is that legacy of reform compatible with ESSA? The fact that so many states have adopted higher standards is going to be a game changer over time, not overnight. One quick example: We put a huge spotlight on reducing these dropout factories, where basically the majority of kids were failing. Duncan, seen here at Fern Creek High School in Louisville, KY, visited many of the nation’s schools on bus tours during his tenure.
Is there anything you regret not being able to focus on more during your time leading the Department of Education? The second regret is that I desperately wanted to provide financial aid and college scholarships to DREAMERs, undocumented students.
These are all things having to do with Congress, to sort of go back to your original question: That we need Congress to partner with us on early childhood education. What do you think large urban districts can do beyond legislative efforts to address and curb both gun violence, but also the school-to-prison pipeline? Where schools are challenging that and doing more restorative justice and peer juries — and more counselors and emotional and psychological support — you see, again, primarily young men of color doing better.
Many districts have actually had very substantial reductions in suspensions and expulsions. To see someone probably going to jail, who is in a position of leadership and a position of trust, because they abused that trust, it’s just the kids who lose when that happens. I’m actually pretty hopeful here, thanks not to what we did at the Department of Education, but because of what the FCC did. Some states, like New York and California, have seen dramatically different responses to Common Core. Folks can tweak, and they move around the edges, but now you have in the law of the land a requirement for states to have high standards.
And how your implement it is legally important, giving different abilities to implement well. As much as some charter models have seen great success, there have been a plethora of high-profile charter scandals nationwide — particularly in Ohio. The power of the idea behind charters was to have increased autonomy, being free from bureaucracy, to be creative, to have some vision and do things independently.
Sometimes in the name of keeping discipline, we humans enforce some of the most brutal punishments. Nonetheless, there are a decent number of counties that are no longer using it for capital punishment. To inflict this punishment sharp wooden or metallic wedges are hammered under the toe nails, violently ripping them off.
People guilty of theft face this punishment, where one hand or both hands are removed with the help of a sharp blade. The chair needed to be electrically charged and the current had to be passed through the prisoner. To give a couple of examples: For the first time ever, the bill incorporates early childhood education. That’s a huge breakthrough that will hopefully help to challenge the past, where it was too easy for politicians to reduce standards. It comes out of 1955: the focus on equity, the focus on achievement gaps, the focus on dropout rates and dropout factories. Now we’re moving to graduation rates, to long-term outcomes, to giving more flexibility there. They’re not guaranteed successes, but they start to put the nation in a spot — maybe in the ballpark. And despite the billion dollars for early childhood ed, there is still tremendous unmet need around the country. And we were really hopeful that immigration reform would happen and that would be a part of it.


We need Congress to partner with us, to give our department permission to provide financial aid to undocumented students.
Just to be very clear, for me, the school-to-prison pipeline is basically what you’re doing for young boys of color. And [they’re] becoming community leaders and helping to contribute to building a positive culture in their schools. With the ongoing bribery scandal involving recent CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett and the other issues facing the district, what are your thoughts on the state of Chicago’s schools? And if Mayor Rahm Emanuel asked, would you return to your previous role as CEO? Hopefully, they’ll find somebody who can stay with it for the long haul and who can build continuity. With the Future Ready Schools and Connected 2.0 initiatives, as well as the FCC’s E-rate program, is enough being done to bridge the tech gap?
I’ve said this a lot publicly, but school districts just basically need to stop buying textbooks and start buying digital devices. We need to start thinking about how we use the scarce resources and in a more strategic way going forward.
Should there have been a more uniform, steady rollout plan to keep it from going off the rails in some states? This came out of governors back in the ’90s talking about the need for states to have higher standards. The media likes to focus on the noise, and there is legitimate debate and pushback from the far left and the far right. What should be done to rein in bad actors in that sphere and mitigate any interests that might play a negative role?
The goal is to have more high-performing schools of every form and fashion, including charters. While some might believe that it is impossible to avoid them, these punishments are without a doubt extremely painful and can leave a person crippled, meanwhile there are other punishments which are put in place to end a person’s life.
Armies in the past and some in the present use this method to extract valuable information from captured enemy soldiers. This is extremely painful where the prisoner is held by another person who keeps reminding him to breath. King Jr., is left with a limited amount of time and less influence to make his mark, though Duncan gave him a few words of wisdom on doing so. Those values that we think are so important, that we fought hard and tried to do it through policy and through our waivers, those things all now are in the law. To explain it better, you have to work with students, but it’s hard to make an argument that to lower standards somehow helps kids long-term.
There’s a shot if people are smart and hold themselves accountable for student learning. The United States ranks something like 28th relative to other nations that provide access to high-quality pre-K. We all need to be working together to provide opportunity for children, particularly those in Chicago where there simply isn’t enough.
There’s a huge increase in the number of schools that actually have access to high-speed broadband. Most textbooks are pretty much obsolete by the time they show up in the classroom, and all this stuff is expensive and there’s never enough money.
In places like Morrisville, NC, they’ve done an amazing job with the same resources, using technology, closing gaps.
There’s nothing about a name that tells you anything about quality, about what are the kids actually learning there. It’s so important for those who are authorizing charters, whether they are states or districts or universities, not to let a thousand flowers bloom, but to have very high quality where you have good authorization and accountability. How can we help them meet those needs and equip them with the skills to handle their situation? And sadly, not surprisingly, suspensions and expulsions are disproportionately happening to young boys of color.
You had two people for 14 years, and now you’ve had five or six over the past seven years.
Then good charters will and can grow and prosper, and bad charters who do not improve can be closed down. It’s controversial sometimes. But who can say that a thousand dropout factories is OK, and that no one cares if that number goes up?
Like tens of thousands of additional schools now have the infrastructure to really accelerate the learning curve.
But thinking in the long-term, there’s nothing more important we can do for kids than to challenge them to be actually college-ready, not only to graduate high school. There’s a real opportunity to take the next step, and my goal always had to be get better, faster. They are young leaders who have worked hard, and then we slam shut the door of opportunity right after they leave high school. We just totally cut off our nose to spite our face and condemn these talented, committed, smart young people. A bronze column found in Ankara confirms the rights the Emperor Augustos accorded the Jews of Asia Minor.Ottoman Period,1299 - 1492 As the Ottoman Empire expands more and more Jewish populations , mostly Romaniot ( Greek-speaking Jews who lived in the Roman Empire ) are incorporated into Ottoman lands. They are officially recognised as dhimmi,a protected non-Muslim community.1326 The Ottoman capture Bursa and make in their capital. Indeed, Turkey could serve as a model to be emulated by any nation which finds refugees from any of the four corners of the world standing at its doors.In 1992, Turkish Jewry celebrated not only the anniversary of this gracious welcome, but also the remarkable spirit of tolerance and acceptance which has characterized the whole Jewish experience in Turkey.
The events being planned - symposiums, conferences, concerts, exhibitions, films and books, restoration of ancient Synagogues etc - commemorated the longevity and prosperity of the Jewish community. As a whole, the celebration aimed to demonstrate the richness and security of life Jews have found in the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish Republic over seven centuries, and showed that indeed it is not impossible for people of different creeds to live together peacefully under one flag.,A History Predating 1492 The history of the Jews in Anatolia started many centuries before the migration of Sephardic Jews. That was a huge battle, and we would not have gotten it in without having (Sen.) Patty Murray (D-WA) be so strong.


When the Ottomans captured Bursa in 1326 and made it their capital, they found a Jewish community oppressed under Byzantine rule.
Sultan Orhan gave them permission to build the Etz ha-Hayyim (Tree of Life) synagogue which remained in service until nineteen forties.Early in the 14th century, when the Ottomans had established their capital at Edirne, Jews from Europe, including Karaites, migrated there. That's a huge breakthrough that will hopefully help to challenge the past, where it was too easy for politicians to reduce standards. In fact, from the early 15th century on, the Ottomans actively encouraged Jewish immigration. In 1537 the Jews expelled from Apulia (Italy) after the city fell under Papal control, in 1542 those expelled from Bohemia by King Ferdinand found a safe haven in the Ottoman Empire. Half a century later, 8070 Jewish houses were listed in the city.The Life of Ottoman Jews For 300 years following the expulsion, the prosperity and creativity of the Ottoman Jews rivalled that of the Golden Age of Spain. Another Portuguese Marrano, Alvaro Mendes, was named Duke of Mytylene in return of his diplomatic services to the Sultan.Salamon ben Nathan Eskenazi arranged the first diplomatic ties with the British Empire.
As a result, leadership of the community began to shift away from the religious figure to secular forces.,,World War I brought to an end the glory of the Ottoman Empire. In 1926, on the eve of Turkey's adoption of the Swiss Civil Code, the Jewish Community renounced its minority status on personal rights.During the tragic days of World War II, Turkey managed to maintain its neutrality. As early as 1933 Ataturk invited numbers of prominent German Jewish professors to flee Nazi Germany and settle in Turkey. By definition, if we're talking about three- and four-year-olds, we're not going to see graduation rates for another 11-12 years. Before and during the war years, these scholars contributed a great deal to the development of the Turkish university system. During World War II Turkey served as a safe passage for many Jews fleeing the horrors of the Nazism.
While the Jewish communities of Greece were wiped out almost completely by Hitler, the Turkish Jews remained secure.
The vast majority live in Istanbul, with a community of about 2.500 in Izmir and other smaller groups located in Adana, Ankara, Antakya, Bursa, Canakkale, Kirklareli etc. There are about 100 Karaites, an independent group who does not accept the authority of the Chief Rabbi.Turkish Jews are legally represented, as they have been for many centuries, by the Hahambasi, the Chief Rabbi. Fifty Lay Counsellors look after the secular affairs of the Community and an Executive Committee of fourteen runs the daily matters. Representatives of Jewish foundations and institutions meet four times a year as a so-called ??think tank?? Some of them are very old, especially Ahrida Synagogue in the Balat area, which dates from middle15th century.
The 15th and 16th century Haskoy and Kuzguncuk cemeteries in Istanbul are still in use today.,??The Museum of Turkish Jews?? Additionally, the Community maintains in Istanbul a school complex including elementary and secondary schools for around 700 students. Turkish is the language of instruction, and Hebrew is taught 3 to 5 hours a week.,While younger Jews speak Turkish as their native language, the over-70-years-old generation is more at home speaking in French or Judeo-Spanish (Ladino). The United States ranks something like 28th relative to other nations that provide access to high-quality pre-K. And we were really hopeful that immigration reform would happen and that would be a part of it. We just totally cut off our nose to spite our face and condemn these talented, committed, smart young people.
To really try to understand what is going on in the child's life, be it at school, in their community, or at home.
How can we help them meet those needs and equip them with the skills to handle their situation? Just to be very clear, for me, the school-to-prison pipeline is basically what you're doing for young boys of color.
Hopefully, they'll find somebody who can stay with it for the long haul and who can build continuity. With the Future Ready Schools and Connected 2.0 initiatives, as well as the FCC's E-rate program, is enough being done to bridge the tech gap?

A bronze column found in Ankara confirms the rights the Emperor Augustus accorded the Jews of Asia Minor.Jewish communities in Anatolia flourished and continued to prosper through the Turkish conquest.
I've said this a lot publicly, but school districts just basically need to stop buying textbooks and start buying digital devices. Most textbooks are pretty much obsolete by the time they show up in the classroom, and all this stuff is expensive and there's never enough money. The fact is, in a short amount of time, with our incentives and tremendous leadership and courage from states, we had an absolute breakthrough. But thinking in the long-term, there's nothing more important we can do for kids than to challenge them to be actually college-ready, not only to graduate high school. There's nothing magical about the name, whether it's a charter school or traditional neighborhood school or a magnet school.
There's nothing about a name that tells you anything about quality, about what are the kids actually learning there.
Graetz, History of the JewsJewish communities in Anatolia flourished and continued to prosper through the Turkish conquest. I've been to amazing charter schools that are literally changing kids' life chances, but I've also gone to the National Charter School Convention and told them that they've got to stop protecting bad charters and close them down.
