The Passage to Higher Education Program at PCC Cascade

School systems from across the United States have increasingly come under public scrutiny. Frustration with schools, especially the inner city districts, not adequately preparing youth to cross the bridge to the 21st century, has lead to debates about funding practices, teacher accountability, parental involvement and paradigm shifts. Also, concerns about the level of violence in schools, teen pregnancy, drugs, and other distractions have been apart of the public discussion on How do we better educate our youth? An innovative program at PCC Cascade “The Passage” to Higher Education is an organized network of professionals and students committed to providing a foundational framework for African American Women earning their degrees.

As you may remember on January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.

No on 26-151 interview with Kellie Barnes

Voters have received the Voters pamphlet and will get their ballots in the next few days. One of the biggest issues facing voters on May 21, 2013 is the issue of fluoridating water. Measure 26-151-ask voters ”Shall Portlanders fluoridate its drinking water supply”. Both sides of this debate were invited to participate in this conversation, unfortunately the pro-side didn’t respond. I will talk with Kellie Barnes, a local small business owner and a volunteer with Clean Water Portland on the No on 26-151 campaign. Have you decided? What questions do you have about fluoridation? Is it safe for food and pets? What questions do you have for the pro side? Let us know your thoughts! Join Kellie and I tomorrow morning from 8:30AM-9:00AM and join the conversation on Voices from the Edge.
