    Ordinary Christians in the World
    What is Opus Dei? By Russell Shaw.

  • In this country, these apostolic works have primarily been of an educational nature, such as high schools in Chicago, Washington DC, and Boston, and supplementary education centers in many inner cities, including in Chicago, Washington DC, Boston and in the South Bronx of New York

  • PHOTO CAPTION: Midtown Center, an after-school program located in the heart of Chicago's inner city, has helped thousands of economically disadvantaged young men since 1965 to achieve academic and professional success

  • Although these institutions - universities, schools, study centers, student residences, conference centers, and professional or vocational training institutes of various kinds - have an apostolic purpose, they are not officially 'Catholic' since members of Opus Dei conduct them on their own and in collaboration with others who are not only not members of Opus Dei but, in many cases, not even Catholics

  • PHOTO CAPTION: Students at Strathmore School in Nairobi, Kenya

  • Began in 1961, Strathmore was among the first schools in Africa to enroll students regardless of race, tribe, or religion

    Izzle! Izzle pfaff!
    Life of a stage actor.

  • Yes, it's a bit of a mouthful, but nothing is going to shut up a schoolyard bully when that kid is picking up his teeth and shrieking through a bloody mouth like the phrase, 'My namesake disproved the concept of the phlogiston, you fucking beef experiment!' This will leave bullies reeling, especially when the tyke uncorks the devastating followup, 'I WAS BEHEADED!' But if that seems too daring, they can always go for the more succinct and more contemporary Mike Post, an homage to the Emmy- and Grammy-winning composer of TV theme songs

  • Little Mike can regale his fellow kindergarteners with jauntily whistled renditions of things like the themes to 'The Rockford FIles, ' 'Hardcastle & McCormick, ' 'Baa Baa Black Sheep, ' and, most awesomely, 'Law & Order.' He'll be the most popular kid in school, particularly when he secretly whispers to his first girlfriend, while clumsily fingering her under the bleachers, 'Unlike the first Mike Post, may his Casio live forever, I was not originally named Leland Michael Postil.' Hot! Now my friends obviously have some Baroque tastes, judging by some of their initial picks

    Homeschooling: Back to the Future?
    An analysis of factors contributing to the growing popularity and products of
    schooling at home. Includes history and FAQ.

  • 294 January 7, 1998 Homeschooling: Back to the Future? by Isabel Lyman Isabel Lyman is codirector of Harkness Road High School in Amherst, Massachusetts, and a long-time homeschooling parent

  • Executive Summary The victory of homeschooled 13-year-old Rebecca Sealfon in the 1997 National Spelling Bee brought new attention to the growing phenomenon of homeschooling

  • Dissatisfied with the performance of government-run schools, more and more American families have begun teaching their children at home

  • Estimates of the number of homeschooled children vary widely; the best estimate is 500, 000 to 750, 000, but some estimates range up to 1.23 million

  • There are two historical strains of homeschooling, a religious-right thread inspired by author Raymond Moore and a countercultural-left thread inspired by John Holt

  • Their differences illustrate the various concerns that cause people to choose homeschooling: some want religious values in education, some worry about the crime and lack of discipline in the government schools, some object to the conformity and bureaucracy in the schools, others are concerned with the declining quality of education, and still others just feel that children are best educated by their parents

    Handbook of Texas Online:
    Current and historical information about Hildago County.

  • Closner's reign ended in 1918, when an audit revealed that as county treasurer he had misappropriated $150, 000 from the county, drainage districts, and the school district

  • Inexperienced teachers were assigned to teach at the Mexican schools, which were usually overcrowded and ill equipped

  • There were no Mexican high schools because Hispanics were not expected to advance beyond elementary school

  • This deprivation led to self-perpetuating poverty as uneducated (and therefore poor) parents removed their children from school so that they could help support the family

  • In Donna, migrant farmworkers' children were sent to a separate school until the late 1970s

    Handbook of Texas Online:

  • Posted March 2, 2004 Metcalf Energy Center Delayed Again: Summer 2005 At the last Metcalf Advisory Committee meeting held on October 15, 2003 at Martin Murphy Middle School, Calpine announced the Metcalf Energy Center has been delayed until the Summer 2005 timeframe

  • By local impact, I refer to the areas immediately surrounding the site, including our residential neighborhoods, elementary schools, and the Coyote Creek Park chain

  • Again, let me remind you that "local" means impacts on residents and an elementary school less than a mile away from a 600-megawatt power plant
