Hawaii Department of Education Defends Charter School Under-Funding On March 4, 2010 15 States across America celebrated their selection for the President's Race to the Top initiative to reform education. Hawaii was not one of those States. Many of us advocate reform, improvement, and innovation in our schools in hopes that we can inspire a generation of engineers and entrepreneurs. This requires leadership and diversity. The heavily-funded Hawaii DOE has neither. In this video we observe the recently appointed Superintendent, whose children do not even attend public schools, defend the illegal underfunding of Hawaii's Charter Schools in direct defiance of the President's directives to support Charter Schools in the Race to the Top. With more furlough days than any other schools in America, on top of the shortest school year in America, it should come as no surprise that Hawaii's 300 public schools are winning the Race to the Bottom. This video is made available from the publicly funded public broadcast of public hearings on public property. I am grateful to Olelo, America's best example of community television, for being there to capture the public record on video.

Land Politics In Zimbabwe - from Al-Jazeera It breaks down like this. The ZANU-PF wants to fund New Farmers with $500 million. The anti-land reform, western funded puppets of the MDC want to only use $50 million. In effect, he wants to destroy the land reform program by underfunding it. The spin put on this by the presenter is unprofessional. For instance, what does "The perception here is that most new farmers support ZANU-PF". Who's 'perception'? Either they do or they don't. They do. So why doesn't she just say "Most new farmers support ZANU-PF"? Is that against AL-JAZEERA editorial policy? And then she goes on... " ... and they're not fully utilizing the lucrative farms seized from white farmers over a decade ago." Who cares? It is THEIR land. They had it back. That they are not running feudal systems with hundreds of serfs to grow cancer sticks - kind of is a big plus for them. And by the way, the white farmers had so much land, that they only utilized 1/5th of what they had. But that is too much truth for Al-Jazeera. Sam Moyo states: "The land issue favors ZANU-PF". Getting their land back would sort of dispose them favorably to the party that gave them their land back, as opposed to the party that wants to take it away from them again (MDC), now wouldn't it? "ZANU-PF'S 'trump card' has always been land". No dear, not a 'trump card', but the most important national issue aside from ousting the racist minority government that stood in the way of getting the land back. spirit medium Mbuya Nehanda went to war ...

Incarceration (Inception and Memento Spoof) A film speaking out about the severe lack of funding in California's public education system. Told in the style of Memento and Inception (a little bit of both). James Wayne is not your average protagonist suffering from amnesia. Waking up, he finds himself in the strangest place. Its oblivious inhabitants live in the lap of luxury and dine on chocolates without abandon. As he explores his opulent surroundings, James slowly recalls his checkered past through convenient flashbacks. He remembers a government with the wrong agenda. An underfunded education system. His plan to escape from it all. Once James puts all the pieces together, he discovers the identity of his location and the unbelievable truth to his arrival.

June 2 Network Sommelier on under funded defined benefit plans with large corporations Continuing on the economic reporting this week, the network sommelier takes a look at the underfunding of pension plans at large corporations.

"The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation May Not Be Able to Pay All Benefits!" The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation's (PBGC) single- and multi-employer insurance programs insure the pension benefits of 44 million participants in more than 29000 private defined benefit (DB) plans. GAO designated the single-employer program as a high risk area in July 2003 because of concern about the program's long-term net financial position. Other issues also contribute to the programs' being on the high-risk list: estimated underfunding of financially weak firms by about $161 billion — a figure that may worsen because of the financial crisis and recession; exposure of insurance programs to the threat of terminations of large underfunded plans sponsored by financially weak firms, particularly automobile industry plans; monitoring of changes in funding rules and premiums being phased in according to provisions in the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA), and subsequent measures that have granted funding relief to DB sponsors; and governance and program management challenges.

Labor Beat: Karen Lewis at Daley Plaza Rally for Public Education On Sept. 21, 2010 a spirited rally of some 500 teachers, community organizations and students was held in Daley Plaza, just across the street from Chicago's City Hall. The rally protested the ongoing plundering of public education being led by City Hall, CPS head Ron Huberman, and corporate Chicago which gives them their orders. "Our communities are not for sale," Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis told the crowd. "You cannot destroy communities one by one through neglect, through under-funding, under-resourcing and then punish those very communities and say 'you're not living up to standards'. No, you're [pointing to City Hall] not living up to standards!" Referring to the ongoing occupation by parents of a school in the Pilsen area of the city, President Lewis said: "We have parents right now at Whittier demanding a library for their kids. Across this city the Board of Education has said our students do not need libraries. They have said not only do we not need a library, we do not need librarians. How do you learn to read, how do you learn to read for pleasure without a library in your school? How do you learn to do research without a library in your school? They don't want our children to do research, they don't want our children to know what they are doing in the name of business." Length - 5:40. Produced by Labor Beat.

sept childhood cancer month 0001 September is National Childhood Cancer Month...please remember the GOLD ribbon for the too many children fighting- and the WAY too many children who paid the price for underfunding. WE NEED A CURE! Coleman fought medulloblastoma (brain cancer) from the age of 2 and a half until he went to heaven less than a month after his 5th birthday. He has a twin brother Caden who misses him so much. Caden was Coleman's best medicine as he went through numerous spinal taps, a port placement, too many rounds of chemo to count, radiation, omaya port placement in his head, and endured having to be separated from his best friend during the 30 day stem cell transplant process. The 30 days apart was hard on them both- now Caden has gone 8 months without his brother... He started Kindergarten without Coleman by his side...he walks around lost at times...he talks about Coleman every single day. It's not right- it wasn't "Long Enough" together. We continue to take one day at a time and continue in the fight against Childhood Cancer! There are so many families still fighting and they need our help. Please wear GOLD and help spread awareness for these children. They need every voice they can get! THANK YOU!

New Retirement Realities - Welcome and Panel 1 The Great Recession has wreaked havoc on Americans' retirement security, battering pensions and 401(k)s and destroying home equity. However, the downturn has only exacerbated deeper structural problems with our retirement system, including the troubled transition from defined-benefit to defined-contribution plans, widespread underfunding of public pensions, and over-reliance on ever-rising home values. How can Americans recover retirement security, and what role should pensions play going forward? Please join the New America Foundation's Economic Growth Program, the University of California Retirement Security Institute, and a diverse group of academics, professionals, and policymakers for a dynamic forum that will identify the "new normal" for retirement security, examine the perilous state of public pensions, and consider best practices for reform.

Prop 21: Why Californians don't need a car tax to save their state parks Once considered the best in the nation, California's state parks are falling apart due to chronic underfunding and mismanagement. The park system has a backlog of $1 billion in deferred maintenance and, last year, 150 of California's parks closed part-time or suffered service reductions. What's the solution? Supporters of Prop 21 believe that the answer lies in a new car tax. If Prop 21 passes in November, California drivers will have to pony up an additional 18 bucks when they register their cars. In exchange, California drivers will be able to use state parks during the day without paying an entrance fee. Does it make sense to tax drivers to subsidize park users? What's the alternative? We went to Sedona, Arizona and met with Warren Meyer of Recreation Resource Management. As Meyer explained, California doesn't need a car tax to save its parks. Instead, California should contract with private park management companies that can manage parks more efficiently than public agencies while actually paying rent to the government for the right to do so.

Veronique de Rugy on the Truth About the State Pension Crisis on Bloomberg We can argue endlessly over precisely when unfunded state and local pension plans will run out of money. But there is one issue where there is no room for debate. Once the pension plans run out of money, the payments will have to come out of general funds, meaning out of the pockets of taxpayers. If the states want to avoid this, they must push through reforms as soon as possible. In her weekly appearance on Bloomberg TV, Reason columnist Veronique de Rugy explains the truth about the state pension crisis by separating economic myth from economic fact. Myth 1: Unfunded state pensions do not represent an immediate threat and are therefore not in crisis. Fact 1: In the best case scenario, some state pension funds will run out as soon as 2017. And the longer the states wait to fully fund their pensions, the more drastic the financial consequences will be. Myth 2: State debt accurately reflects state liabilities. And state default is not a concern because the federal government will bail the states out before they reach that point. Fact 2: Many government pension liabilities are kept off the books, so most states and cities underestimate their actual debt. Myth 3: State and local workers are not overpaid. And even if they are, changing their compensation won't make a difference. Fact 3: While this is a complex issue, the total compensation package for state workers does tend to exceed that of their private-sector counterparts. Myth 4: The financial crisis, which caused a ...
