Corey Thornton @ Connect for Respect PTA "Bullying"

Connect-for-Respect2

Parents and caring adults can play pivotal roles in creating a healthy school and community climate that is free of bullying. By working together, educators, parents, concerned citizens, business leaders, advocates, and community members can support the implementation of bullying prevention programs, reinforce bullying prevention messages, and advocate for bullying policies to be implemented. This collaboration is critical as bullying happens everywhere that young people gather, including online, via text, and in social networks. PTA® leaders and parents can play an important role in convening community conversations to build awareness of this as an important issue and to take action to stop bullying in your communities.  

Corey Thornton Supports "Breaking News" Chicago teachers on strike!

CHICAGO – Thousands of teachers walked off the job Monday in Chicago, the third-largest U.S. school district, as city officials prepared to look after thousands of students who could end up wandering unsafe streets. Some 26,000 teachers and support staff were expected to join the picket after union leaders announced they were far from resolving a contract dispute with school district officials.

Corey Thornton Supports Pres. Barack Obama is coming to St. Pete College

.President-Barack-Obama

The Seminole Campus at St. Petersburg College is a buzz as it prepares to host President Barack Obama. On the heels of the Democratic National Convention,  President Barack Obama is bringing his campaign to the college Saturday. He will make an appearance at the campus's Natural Habitat Park Field. “It’s the real deal, we’d like to think it’s all been practice and once he got renominated he chose us first to start his campaign, so that’s how we’re playing it,” Dr. Bill Law, President of St. Petersburg College, said.

Law also stated he’s still not sure why the president chose his college, but he sure is happy he did. “The real problem for me is not that students are either republican or democrat," said Law. "It’s that students don’t participate so anything that gets students involved in the process I’m all for.” The group of people who waited outside in line for tickets on Wednesday felt the buzz. Many are folks who live in Seminole and want to see the President for the first time.

President Obama Talks About Supporting Education!

Corey Thornton Supports Sandra Fluke who took a stand against being BULLIED as a women!

Rush Limbaugh just can’t resist bringing up Sandra Fluke, the law student he infamously attacked because of her stances on birth control. He implied that he deserved credit for bringing Fluke further into the public eye by calling her a ”slut” and a ”prostitute.” Fluke referred to Limbaugh’s comments about her during her Wednesday night address.

She said the future could bring a president who won’t stand up to extreme voices in his own party, or it could bring one where women can’t be charged more than men for the same health coverage. Fluke, a law student whom congressional Republicans would not let testify at a hearing on contraceptives, said if Republicans win in the fall, women will wake up to ”an America in which access to birth control is controlled by people who will never use it, in which politicians redefine rape.”

 

Bullies are not just in schools but [The Real World Also] Take a Stand to Prevent Bullying!

Corey Thornton Supports Govt. Charlie Crist who stood up for many teachers in Florida against merit-based pay...

Speaking of Gov. Charlie Crist we cant forget he courageously stood up to members of his own political party by vetoing Senate Bill 6. Florida Legislature in just five weeks that would have revolutionized how public school teachers are paid and evaluated. The bill embraced reasonable concepts but was fatally flawed in the way it implemented them. The next time Republican legislators tackle these issues, they should invite educators to help work out the details.

Lawmakers are right to want to modernize Florida’s teaching profession so that the best teachers are well paid and the worst are fired. But Crist was right that the solution cannot be built inside the Legislature’s echo chamber. He did not stand up for teacher unions Thursday; he stood up for teachers and for real reform. He stood up to arrogant Republican legislators and influential business groups who refused to listen. Instead of criticizing the governor for exposing their failures, legislative leaders should begin again, this time in collaboration with the education community.

Bullies are not just in schools but the work place also. Together lets make a Stand!
