Are school suspensions a civil rights issue?

Are school suspensions a civil rights issue? | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"I get the chance to suspend someone at least once a week—easy," Fowler says. "But I take it as a challenge unto myself to think about how I can address the issue without dismissing anyone."

It's an approach more educators are taking, and one Fowler wishes teachers had tried with him in high school.


"My own healing process became connected to this redemption," he says. "All the mistakes that authority figures made toward me make me want to do right by my own students."

South Africa xenophobic attacks: How did we get here?

South Africa xenophobic attacks: How did we get here? | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"As attacks against foreigners and their businesses rage on, killing at least six people this week, other nations in the continent are scrambling to evacuate their citizens from South Africa. But this is not the first time xenophobic violence has exploded in a country that tries to portray itself as a diverse 'rainbow' nation.

What triggered this week's attacks? They started after Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini said at a recent gathering that foreigners 'should pack their bags and go' because they are taking jobs from citizens, local media reported. Shortly after his comments, violence against immigrants erupted in the port city of Durban."

The Flawed Standard Model of Geopolitics

The Flawed Standard Model of Geopolitics | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"An overarching issue that is essential for understanding many pressing events of the day is the fraying standard geopolitical model of the world. This taken-for-granted model posits mutually recognized sovereign states as the fundamental building blocks of the global order. Many of these basic units, however, are highly fragile and a number have collapsed altogether. As a result, the next several posts will consider, and critique, the conventional state-based vision of the world. I am skeptical of the standard 'nation-state' model of global politics, as I think that it conceals as much as it reveals about current-day geopolitical realities. This model, evident on any world political map, rests on the idea that that the terrestrial world is divided into a set number of theoretically equivalent sovereign states."
