edu_bulletin


The Education Bulletin is an online education Magazine, distributed free of charge to anybody connected or involved in education.It is a non-profit organisation but is sponsored by various businesses. It is designed to provide parents and students with a forum to vent their stories, experiences and concerns with others. Further, the magazine (which is available to those who register) will include specialist guidance, drawn up by lawyers and educational psychologists as well as teachers, so that those caught in the maze of difficulty within the educational system are provided with a clearer route. If you have a story or a question for our legal panel, or even a query that you might want to raise with one of our associated educational psychologists, then please use the form provided. The editorial team cannot guarantee however that each question can be answered within the magazine, but we will do our best to answer queries, via articles that will appear in our online editions.

Eat at Chilis and help fight childhood Cancer [Sep. 20th, 2007|06:19 pm]

St. Jude Children's Research hospital has done, and is doing amazing things to fight childhood cancer. Find out more about the hospital and its work at
http://www.stjude.org
and then go eat!

Chili's Grill & Bar donating all profits from this Monday to St. Jude
Eat at Chili's Grill & Bar on September 24

On September 24, Chili’s Grill & Bar offers an easy way for you to join the fight against childhood cancer: dining out.

Participating Chili’s restaurants nationwide will donate 100 percent of its profits from this Monday to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. So enjoy
those famous Baby Back Ribs or one of Chili’s other signature entrées for lunch or dinner, and you will be supporting the life-saving work of St. Jude.

“If you go out to eat for lunch or dinner on September 24, by going to Chili’s you will help seriously ill children become the ultimate survivors. On that
day, Chili’s restaurants nationwide will be donating all their profits to support St. Jude,” said Jeff Probst, host and producer of the EmmyTM Award-winning
CBS-TV series Survivor, who is serving as the campaign spokesperson for the fourth year and appears in a public service announcement that can be viewed
at
www.createapepper.com.

The special day is part of Chili’s “Create-A-Pepper to Fight Childhood Cancer” campaign. During September—which is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month—guests
can make a donation to St. Jude and receive a coloring sheet they can decorate and have displayed in the restaurant.

Guests can also purchase
Create-A-Pepper T-shirts
($12) that can be customized with permanent marker as well as
dog tags
($5). Sixty percent of the purchase price of the T-shirt and dog tags will go to St. Jude.

Special
gift cards
will also benefit St. Jude with Chili’s donating $1 to St. Jude for every $25 purchased in commemorative Create-A-Pepper gift cards.

Chili’s hopes to raise $5 million through this year’s campaign which will go toward its $50 million, 10 year plan to fund the Chili’s Care Center, a state-of-the-art
research and clinical building. Opening on the St. Jude campus in November 2007, the building will house St. Jude’s Department of Radiological Sciences,
the national Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC), inpatient beds and activity areas and new research laboratories. To date, Chili’s has raised more
than $10.5 million for the hospital.

For more information, to purchase Create-A-Pepper T-shirts and Gift Cards, to make an online donation or to create an e-pepper, visit

when to help? [Jul. 28th, 2007|11:35 am]
Caring for All of God's Children

hilitesmmz
I thought this question might belong here.  Jess' mom took the easy way out - I ahve sepnt a lot of time with her and there is nothing that some guidance won't help.  She loves her baby and her baby loves her.  This was her first time living lone with the baby and no ones help - things werent' exact, but then parenting never is.  Jess easily could get a job with some eduction behind her

I do not know what to do.  My sons is 19 his girlfriend of 6 months is 21 and her baby is 2 - I wrote in my LJ hilitesmmz as to the problem, I don't know how to help without helping too much - how to back off without being critical - I love them all, but they need independance

Tours [Jul. 21st, 2007|10:24 am]

Hello Friends,
Yesterday I went with a friend of mine on a city tour of Spokane (um…). My friend is a tour guide and is being trained along with two other people to be professional tour guides for the city. On this particular run-through of the tour, the trainees were supposed to bring two people to act as an audience and I had the privelige of tagging along.

On our way to meet the bus, I asked out of curiosity if, at any time in her training she and her classmates had been given any instruction as to how to facilitate individuals with disabilities on tour. They had not.

As it turns out, the only audience consisted of myself, one other adult and two children. One tour guide took her turn at the microphone for her portion of the tour and, in an attempt to make things interactive for the kids said there’s this tower,” (blab la bla) “Now, I want the first person who sees the tower to put their hand on their head. Well, almost everyone, someone is obviously excluded so we won’t worry about her…” Wow, I’ve lived for 20 years with humanity’s lack of respect for diversity etc. Somehow, though, this bothered me more than I expected.

These are tour guides in training. A tour guide can make or break a vacation experience for an entire family (or more). So, to take a proactive approach, I was wondering if anyone has stories or suggestions about tours and individuals with disabilities. What have your experiences been? What could have made it better? Was it a walking or a bus tour? I would like to combine any information received in to a hand-out for my friend and so that she may distribute the ideas to her colleagues. And, in case you’re looking for a career change, there is obviously a serious need for actual training on facilitating people with disabilities in this field.

Thank you all very much.
-Jess

Long time, no write-to [Nov. 17th, 2006|06:28 pm]

Hello friends,
I hope you and your families are well.

I got the following link from another LJ community and wanted to post it here as well. This is a website for a singer named Mark Leland who has produced a CD called "missing pieces." The title track was inspired by Leland's manager who has a son with autism. the music video for this song can be viewed on this site as well.

http://www.markleland.net/MARK%20LELAND%20BIO.htm

I'd love to know what you think about the site or the video. Have a great weekend and God bless.

-Jess
