Deaths, Abuse and Alleged Rapes: How Lax Oversight Endangers Florida's -- and the Nation's -- Children

Is Florida the most dangerous places in the country for children with disabilities, behavioral disorders or the sheer misfortune to be born into abusive families? That could well be the case, based on a series of troubling investigative reports....
Lon Woodbury's insight:

After reading this report, a person would think ALL adolescent therapeutic residential facilities are hell holes, which is a gross exaggeration.  They damage their case for the seriousness of the problem by throwing in countless "alleged, "reported," etc. to prove their point.  Why can't they just "tell it like it is" without even at least mentioning there are good residential therapeutic programs.  -Lon

Self-Mutilation, Eating Disorders, and Suicide

Self-Mutilation, Eating Disorders, and Suicide | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
When the body weeps tears of blood, we need to wonder what terrible sorrows cannot be spoken. When food that had tasted good suddenly feels like poison and has to be purged from the body, we should wonder what traumatic experiences exist that cannot be contained, metabolized, and integrated. . .

What myths do you know that undermine educational effectiveness? This post provides 21, and each is explained in the post. Fourteen of the myths provide links to additional information. Five of them are listed below. Click through to the post to find additional information on these five and the additional sixteen.

* Facts prevent understanding.

* You can always just look it up.

* Homework boosts achievement.

* Subject matter knowledge is a teacher's most powerful asset.

* The brain is static, unchanging and set before you start school.

You may not agree with all of these myths. Many could be used as a starter for discussions in a faculty meeting or with parents.
