The story of Ester is my/our release covered in the. Blood of Jesus there is Haman setting Malichi up on the downlow to not only take his life but  the life of all his people because Haman was angry with the thirst of others that he hated with a passion because the man of God disobeyed his God given instructions and listen to the people and let Haman mother live because she was pregnant but then he lied about what he had done but God knew what he had done no matter what he said but he didnt know that which he allowed to.live and lies about would have the child she was conceived with and she would die during child birth and her son Haman would devise a  lood thirsty plan to revenge his mothers death. He became a man of great respect hatred in his heart abiding his time mocking the people that he said to his mother away from him making them bow down to him when he came into their presents proving to him they was beneath him. But then there was Malichi who was one of them less than hims but Malichi would not bow to Haman because He would bow to no.man but God. That made Haman even madder and Haman decided he can and did take any of their earthly posessions or their lives just by his say and enslave them because of who he was but that one man Of God Malichi was denying him the authority to intimidate and domi.ste him because Malichi knew whos he was and trusted God no matter what.

Surprise! White People Don't Really Care About School Diversity


Last century, white parents from Arkansas to Boston vigorously opposed the integration of local schools. Today, most white Americans still do not support interventions that would put more of their children in classrooms with black students, a new poll reveals. 


A HuffPost/YouGov poll asked Americans if they think "the government should or should not try to make sure public schools include a balance of children from different races." Nearly half opposed government intervention to diversify schools. Most said kids should go to their neighborhood schools even if they're not racially diverse -- which they're usually not. 


Responses varied drastically along racial lines. 


Some 61 percent of black Americans and 55 percent of Hispanic Americans said they think the government should take steps to increase school diversity. Only 28 percent of white Americans said the same.





In the decades after the U.S. Supreme Court declared the official segregation of schools unconstitutional in 1954's Brown v. Board of Education, many school districts took strides to ensure a more equitable racial balance in the classroom. Following passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, districts risked losing federal funds if they did not desegregate. However, starting in the 1990s, a series of Supreme Court decisions helped dismantle policies that had spurred greater diversity. 


In 2016, schools remain significantly segregated by race and class. The typical black student attends a school that is less than 10 percent white, according to research from the UCLA Civil Rights Project. And these facilities are far from equal: Black students are more likely to attend schools with less qualified teachers, high poverty rates and lower state and local per-pupil funding.


Americans do not necessarily see or understand this racial isolation. In the HuffPost/YouGov poll, only 40 percent said they think public schools are somewhat or very segregated by race, compared to 44 percent who disagreed.


Black Americans were almost twice as likely as whites to say schools are very or somewhat segregated: 62 percent vs. 34 percent. Republicans were less likely than Democrats to describe schools as segregated. 





A plurality of Americans did recognize that attending a racially diverse school is "better for students." Yet a solid majority said it is more important "to have students go to local community schools even if it means most students are of the same race." Only 18 percent said it is more important "to have students go to racially diverse schools even if many of the students don't live nearby."





In lieu of efforts to desegregate schools by race, a growing number of districts have been trying to desegregate along socioeconomic lines, said Richard Kahlenberg, a senior fellow at The Century Foundation. He noted more than 80 school districts nationwide use socioeconomic status as a factor when determining school assignments. 


But another HuffPost/YouGov poll found low levels of public support for government intervention on this basis.


There is evidence that socioeconomic desegregation, like racial desegregation, can help narrow achievement gaps between groups of students. A study of North Carolina's Wake County Public School System found that when socioeconomic status was a factor in assigning students, schools retained their high levels of racial diversity, and achievement gaps in math between black and white students decreased. 


In recent years, though, Wake County has moved away from those efforts as its population has grown.


"In order to keep the diversity, many people had to change schools," explained Monique McMillian, an associate professor at Morgan State University, who studied the system. "I think for many families, they were upset at having to constantly change schools and not be able to buy a home in a particular neighborhood and know where their child was going to go to school." 


The HuffPost/YouGov polls each consisted of 1,000 completed interviews conducted Dec. 16-18 and Dec. 23-27 among U.S. adults, using a sample selected from YouGov's opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population.


The Huffington Post has teamed up with YouGov to conduct daily opinion polls. You can learn more about this project and take part in YouGov's nationally representative opinion polling. Data from all HuffPost/YouGov polls can be found here. More details on the polls' methodology are available here.


Most surveys report a margin of error that represents some, but not all, potential survey errors. YouGov's reports include a model-based margin of error, which rests on a specific set of statistical assumptions about the selected sample, rather than the standard methodology for random probability sampling. If these assumptions are wrong, the model-based margin of error may also be inaccurate. Click here for a more detailed explanation of the model-based margin of error.

N.C. school system settles in translation case

RALEIGH — A settlement between the Wake County public schools and federal officials is expected to lead to better communication, translated documents and other help.

The state's largest school system settled with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.

The Southern Poverty Law Center and Advocates for Children's Services filed a complaint in June on behalf of parents who were having difficulty communicating with the system. In announcing the settlement, Wake schools said it has taken steps to make sure that people who don't speak English very well can communicate with the system.

HIPAA VIOLATION FINES FOR BUSINESSES-WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

HIPAA VIOLATION FINES FOR BUSINESSES-WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW | WAKE COUNTY SCHOOLS Being investigated by Federal Government for Discrimination of African American STUDENts meeting held with Federal gov.  please continuing praying and sharing | Scoop.it

HIPAA, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act was enacted to offer protection to workers as well as their families through new employer limitations to exclude health coverage for any preexisting condition, providing new rights to those who end up losing coverage to access group health plan and to ban discrimination that is based on preexisting conditions of the employees. This act was put in place back in 1996 and also protects patient medical information electronically stored or paper stored. This is through the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the Security Rule implemented by HHS.

The ORC, Office of Civil Rights under HHS, Health Human Services investigates any violations of the act through filed complaints. It is the HIPAA enforcement agency and determines the penalties for every situation where a violation has taken place. The penalties are based on the act of 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Most employers and employees do not clearly understand the violation fines yet it is very important information especially for growing businesses.

HIPAA violation fines

The civil penalty amount will usually be dependent on the harm extent resulting from the act violation. It can also be calculated depending on whether the violation willfully or unknowingly occurred and whether it was timely corrected or not. In essence, any unknowing negligence needs to be corrected in as short as 30 days from OCR notice. The most common HIPAA violation fines examples are:

First time violation unknowingly committed – the fine for this kind of violation can be from $100 to around $50,000 Willful negligence violation timely corrected – for this kind of violation, the resulting fine stands from $10,000 to $50,000 maximumWillful negligence violation not corrected – in case the willful negligence is not corrected within the given time limit of 30 days, the fine cannot be anything less than $50,000. It is the heftiest of all violation fines under the act.

Criminal Violations

Covered entities can end up suffering serious criminal consequences under the Privacy Rule. The rule protects patient information of health from any disclosure. Any deliberate disclosure can therefore amount to prosecution by the Department of Justice. The fine for the violation is usually $50,000 coupled with 1 year in jail. In case the private information is sold or transferred, the violation could amount to 10 years in jail and $250,000.

If you run a business, it is important to understand the HIPAA act and to comply to avoid the personal and financial penalties that come with violations of the set rules. Insurance adjusters, healthcare professionals as well as other covered entities must be dedicated to ensuring that no circumstance leads to compliance failure. This is because it could have drastic negative effects to a business financially as also as far as credibility goes. It becomes easier for you as a business to keep up with the given acts when you are fully aware of the consequences. Complying can make a huge difference in business prowess and business failure.

HIPAA Law cannot be taken for granted by any small business. The simple set of rules ensures that you and your business are on the right side of the law. This can save the business or company from lots of avoidable losses.

Bullying of Students with Disabilities Addressed in Guidance to America’s Schools // U.S. Department of Education

Bullying of Students with Disabilities Addressed in Guidance to America’s Schools // U.S. Department of Education | WAKE COUNTY SCHOOLS Being investigated by Federal Government for Discrimination of African American STUDENts meeting held with Federal gov.  please continuing praying and sharing | Scoop.it

October 21st, 2014  


"As part of National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, the U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) today issued guidance to schools reminding them that bullying is wrong and must not be tolerated—including against America's 6.5 million students with disabilities.
 


The Department issued guidance in the form of a letter to educators detailing public schools' responsibilities under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of Americans with Disabilities Act regarding the bullying of students with disabilities. If a student with a disability is being bullied, federal law requires schools to take immediate and appropriate action to investigate the issue and, as necessary, take steps to stop the bullying and prevent it from recurring.


"While there is broad consensus that bullying cannot be tolerated, the sad reality is that bullying persists in our schools today, especially for students with disabilities," said Catherine E. Lhamon, Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights. "Basic decency and respect demand that our schools ensure that all their students learn in a safe environment. I look forward to continuing our work with schools to address and reduce incidents of bullying so that no student is limited in his or her ability to participate in and benefit from all that our educational programs have to offer."
 


Since 2009, OCR has received more than 2,000 complaints regarding the bullying of students with disabilities in the nation's public elementary and secondary schools.



Today's guidance builds upon anti-bullying guidance the Department has issued in recent years concerning schools' legal obligations to fix the problem, including:



  • 2013 dear colleague letter and enclosure by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) clarifying that when bullying of a student with a disability results in the student not receiving meaningful educational benefit under IDEA, the school must remedy the problem, regardless of whether the bullying was based on the student's disability.

  • 2010 dear colleague letter by the OCR, which elaborated on potential violations when bullying and harassment is based on race, color, national origin, sex, or disability.

  • 2000 dear colleague letter by the OCR and OSERS, which explained that bullying based on disability may violate civil rights laws enforced by OCR as well as interfere with a student's receipt of special education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).



The latest letter makes clear that the protections for students with disabilities who are bullied on any basis extend to the roughly three quarters of a million students who are not eligible for IDEA services but are entitled to services under the broader Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. That law bars discrimination on the basis of disability in all programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance.
 


Help is available for those who are either targets of disability bullying or know of someone who might be, such as:



  • fact sheet for parents on schools' obligations under federal law to address bullying. The fact sheet is also available in Spanish.

  • Visiting the federal Web site, www.stopbullying.gov, which provides useful information on bullying prevention and remedies.

  • Asking to meet with the student's team that designs his or her individualized education program—the IEP or Section 504 teams.

  • Asking to meet with the principal or school district's special education coordinators to have the school address bullying concerns.

  • Seeking help from OCR. The office investigates complaints of disability discrimination at schools.

Sustaining women's literacy and SDGs

Sustaining women's literacy and SDGs | WAKE COUNTY SCHOOLS Being investigated by Federal Government for Discrimination of African American STUDENts meeting held with Federal gov.  please continuing praying and sharing | Scoop.it
The past week, on September 8, the world celebrated the International Literacy Day. This year's theme “Literacy and sustainable societies”was particularly significant considering the recently declared Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets. SDG 4 is to "ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote life-long learning opportunities for all" while target 4.6 is "by 2030 ensure that all youth and at least x percent of adults, both men and women, achieve literacy and numeracy." This year's International Literacy Day was also of particular significance given the latest UNESCO Global Monitoring Report (GMR) “Education for All 2000-2015”.

Bangladesh has made significant progress in terms of adult literacy over the past 25 years. The MDG targets have helped prioritise literacy among women, a socially neglected segment of the population, by directing public funds to expand schooling opportunities for girls.

If published government records are any indication, the investment has paid off. According to UNESCO, female youth literacy jumped from 60 percent to 79 percent between 2000 and 2010 in Bangladesh. Given that girls outnumber boys in primary and secondary schooling, a further jump in female official literacy rate is expected. After all, formal schooling is the most critical institution for obtaining literacy skills in rural Bangladesh where many children belong to first-generation learners and illiterate parents.

However, evidence from the field and the recently published GMR warn that administrative data on literacy level in developing countries can be misleading.

This year's GMR has exposed the extent of illiteracy among adults around the world. Globally more than 750 million adults are unable to read and write, one that is faced by over half of all women in sub-Saharan Africa and South and West Asia; the poorest young women are six times less likely to be able to read than the richest.

Similar evidence was presented for Bangladesh during a public seminar on "Learning Crisis in South Asia" at BRAC on August 24, 2015 where we discussed the evidence on vulnerability to illiteracy based on the 2014 WiLCAS (Women's Life Choices and Attitudes Survey) data. As part of the survey, we interviewed over 6000 women across 64 districts. In addition to asking women to self-report their literacy status (whether they can read and write), respondents were presented with a simple test of literacy alongside a rudimentary test of numeracy and cognitive ability. The results were striking. Consistent with government figures, 66 percent women reported themselves as literate. But only 48 percent of respondents could read two simple sentences in Bangla. Among women who reported themselves as literate, 35 to 60 percent failed in two simple grade 5 reading tests during the survey. Given that these so-called literate women had on average completed junior secondary equivalent schooling, WiLCAS findings suggest poor retention ability among a segment of Bangladeshi women.

This loss of literacy is a particular risk for women in developing countries where the overall school quality is poor. The environment in which women can acquire and retain literacy skills is also shaped by various forms of social restrictions and norms. For instance, majority of Bangladeshi women opt out of work life and spend most of their lives as housewives. This creates conditions where literacy skills can be lost which in turn creates a new form of vulnerability.

Functional illiteracy can undermine voice and agency among adolescent girls and women, which exposes them to various forms of violence such as early marriage.

Economic opportunities for women have been slowly increasing in Bangladesh with the expansion of the ready-made garment industry sector and microfinance schemes giving loans to rural women to set up microenterprises. But paid jobs for women graduating from secondary school still remains limited, making them vulnerable to situations where literacy cannot be retained. The poor quality of secondary schools makes it particularly hard to retain literacy in post-school years.

To make the matter worse, changing social environments have adversely affected participation in daily life activities involving literacy skills. As per the nationwide Bangladesh Literacy Survey (BLS) 2010 of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics, only 3.54 percent of respondents reported reading newspapers and magazines several times in a month, and 2.81 percent each day. Stories and novels as reading materials were used by only 2.55 percent several times in a month and 2.53 percent daily. Only 3.04 percent of respondents visited local library several times in the last three months. Visits to other places such as book stalls, newsstands and village education community centres were as low as 10.58, 1.72 and 0.78 percent respectively.

The figures are even lower for rural areas and women. These statistics reinforce the conclusion of 2015 GMR -- increased access to learning opportunities is not enough if opportunities to use and retain literacy skills are low.

In the absence of functional literacy, millions of women in Bangladesh remain exposed to many forms of violence and insecurity. In addition, Bangladesh cannot sustain the process of social development that it has experienced over the past three decades without functionally literate mothers. Women's literacy is critical to attaining SDG 5: "Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls".

As Bangladesh enters the post-2015 era of SDGs, we must ensure that our schools impart literacy skills that can be sustained in post-school years. Literacy campaigns must also be organised around the notion of 'lifelong learning' for all – children, youth and adults – irrespective of their level of schooling completed.

Efforts to create jobs for women must go hand in hand with government initiatives that ensure that rural schools provide minimum literacy skills that are sustained over time irrespective of what life choices women make over their lifetime. These can be completed by new initiatives targeting women who have graduated school but are economically inactive, constrained at home because of traditional social norms.

Many of them have easy access to ICT facilities which can be leveraged to create opportunities to promote literate environments and reading practices. However, there is also a wide gender gap in internet usage at the national level. According to BLS 2010, the corresponding figures were 2.00 percent for males and 0.97 percent for females.

In the absence of new initiatives and opportunities to sustain literacy in post-school years in Bangladesh, improved school enrolment and school completion by girls alone are unlikely to attain SDG target 4.6. Sustainable development is impossible in the post-2015 era without improved literacy and schooling will mean nothing without it.
