MINI SERIES on the OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK
A Mini-Series about John Mc Donogh High School located in the Middle of the War-Torn City of New Orleans, Louisiana.
According to Charter School Official Schools like John Mc Donogh can be turned around and put back on-course. As a Certified School Psychologist and a Career Educators I am currently encouraging everyone to watch this Mini-Series on OWN in the very near future.
FACT: 13 of the bottom 100 Worst Performing Academic Public Schools in North America are located in Orleans Parish. By the way, John Mc Donogh High School just happens to be one of the 13. SooOOOO to say that this Mini-Series is going to be interesting is a Gross Understatement.
FACT: In 2013, New Orleans is a “WAR ZONE”, the city has become America’s “KILLING FIELDS”!
FACT: New Orleans is one of the poorest cities of Planet Earth and to make matters much worse than they already were the city was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina back in 2005. Most of the roads in the inner city are stilled buckled and the streets of New Orleans have seen more than their share fair of Blood, Alcohol and Dead Bodies. To say that MOST of New Orleans is Blighted and Impoverished Community would also be a Gross Understatement. In fact, simply calling the Police to report a crime taking place in your neighborhood can actually get you Killed in the "CITY THAT CARE FORGOT". New Orleans currently has the highest per-capita Murder Rate in North America. In recent years, New Orleans Finest have been arrested for Gangland activities including engaging in such activities as Drug Smuggling, Armed Robbery, Rape, Murder, Extortion and Public Corruption. Recently, our Mayor made this statement to the News Media specifically about John Mc Donogh High School.
The following is a “QUOTE” is taken in exact context from Mayor Mitch Landrieu State of the City Address IN May of 2012.
“MAYOR MITCH LANDRIEU: It is a sad, horrifying truth that in 2011 a John Mc Donogh High School student was more likely to be killed on the streets of America in the city of New Orleans than a soldier fighting for our freedom in Afghanistan. Indeed, last month, we had six murder victims who were baby-face teenagers. Dreams deferred, dreams denied.”
Public School Reduction In Forces (RIF) have caused massive layoffs in the Field of Public Education in recent years. The single largest casualty of the "OBAMA ECONOMY" has been the layoff of over 50,000 Career Educators in the United States of America over the past 24-months.(01-18-2013)
FACT: Public Education has been devastated and is currently on the verge of collapse. Far too many of our Nation’s Public Schools are dirty, dingy and outdated. Most of our Schools are over-crowded and under-staffed and MUCH more Dangerous today than at any time in our Nation’s past.
