Solution for Drug/Gang/Elder Poverty

May 31, 2018

Hi Everyone,

In the early 1970’s, I taught third grade at Easton Elementary School which is near Morgantown, WV, the home of West Virginia University. Easton served a blue-collar, rural area. It was a Title 1 (poverty) school.

Along came MacMillian Publishers. For one year, they sponsored a tutoring program at Easton. The tutors were moms and other interested persons from the community. MacMillian provided training for these moms, materials and an on-site trainer. Students were tutored individually and in small-groups daily.

Results

At the end of that school year, according to national tests, each of my students gained a year or more in achievement. That means that if a student entered my class reading at a first-grade level, he left reading at a second-grade level. 

The fact is that every student left my class for grade four reading at a third-grade level or higher.  This was so for all areas including math. No student left third grade scoring below grade three in any area of learning.

The tutoring paid off. The extra attention, the extra teaching, the having an extra person rooting for them made this happen.

Solution

So. In view of the drug crisis, the neighborhood and school violence crisis and the elder poverty crisis, I suggest that every child in America receive daily tutoring.

That’s every child: poverty, wealthy, rural, inner-city, public school, private school, conservative, liberal. Every single child.

One-to-one tutoring gives every child someone extra in their corner, someone who not only listens and teaches, but who, also, observes, takes note, gives help or finds help for the student.

Consider that if someone had observed certain needs of certain individuals, the school shootings might not have happened. Consider that if someone had given encouragement, hope and direction certain individuals  might not have taken drugs or joined gangs. Consider that if someone helps lift someone up, helps them stand and then stand alone, individuals might see alternatives to gangs and violence.

Who Tutors

There are many retired teachers who would love to work with children but who no longer desire to manage a classroom. There are many retirees who would welcome the chance to increase their income and do good.

Remember that MacMillian trained the moms and interested people in the neighborhood. These folks didn’t have college degrees. They had a desire to help their kid and the other children in the neighborhood.

Providing a one-to-one daily tutor for each child could be a major piece of the solution for ending drug, gang and violence in our schools and neighborhoods. 

It is certainly a way to end elder poverty. Grandmothers,  grandfathers and other retired persons would be perfect tutors.

Healing Happens

There is a national call to end the drug/gang/elder poverty crisis in our nation. A healing is needed.

Healing does not happen unless there is a vision, a why and a how.

The vision is each child in American receiving daily, one-to-one tutoring so that learning is enhanced and problems spotted and resolved.

The why is to end the drug/gang/elder poverty crisis.

The how is to employ retired folks, trained them to tutor, observe and problem-solve and then assign them as tutors to the students. Some of the student problems a trained tutor could spot and help solve are rejection and loneliness or homelessness and hunger or fear of bullies and gangs. 

The details are left to each of you who sees that daily,  one-to-one tutoring for every child  is a viable, workable piece needed to help our schools and communities become safe, peaceful, fun and productive places.

And so it is.

End Discouragement

Nov. 3, 2013

Hello,

It doesn’t matter what new thing one desires to bring forth: a new government in Syria, or a new way to purchase health insurance in the United States, discouragement will appear.

Discouragement can be the greatest obstacle to achievement and success because it weakens and, sometimes, destroys individuals.  Discouragement is not permanent or destructive unless you allow it to be.

Counter Discouragement

One of the ways to counter discouragement is to constantly remind your Self of who you are really:

  • Always, always, always spell “self” with a capital letter:  your Self, my Self, the Self, etc.  This serves to remind you that you have the power, the creativity and the abilities of that which created you, God.  God gave you the qualities of God when you were created.
  • Speak out loud: “I am capable”; “I am creative”; “I am a genius”; “I am an organizer”; “I am successful”; “I am a winner”; “I am confident”; “I am connected to God, the angels, the ascended masters and all those who desire me to have my highest good, and I continuously receive from all of them”.
  • Speak out loud: “I have the habit of success”; “I have the habit of winning”; “I have the habit of achieving”.  Yes, success, winning and achieving are habits.  If you haven’t acquired them, plan to do so now.
  • When you think or feel discouragement, immediately repeat the above “I am’s” and “I have’s”.
  • Send an email to me requesting a copy of “Before Birthing an Idea” available on this site; it’s a free e book that lists the truths, decisions, and actions necessary for the successful birth of an idea.  I copied and enlarged a copy of the truths and the decisions; I hung these on a wall that I pass several times a day so that I read them several times a day.  These, also, help dissolve discouragement.
  • Lastly, of course, I turn to the angels.

Belief System

Add to your belief system:

  • I am a knower of who I really am and a knower of what I am to do
  • I have the answer.  I stop seeking.  I take action.
  • My idea is birthed.  It appears in physical form.  It is strong, healthy and vibrant.
  • I am victory.  I announce it.  I claim it.  I see it now.

Ask the Angels:

Angels of all of us, surround us in hope, faith, joy and the knowledge that we have surrendered to the highest good for our life.  Uncover our confidence so that we know the idea we are supporting is part of this highest good. Allow encouragement to spread through each morsel of our being and our project, the birthing our idea.

This is Rev. Barbara.  I speak and write this word for all who are open and receptive to it.  I speak so that all of us will know the truth and that this truth sets us free.

Angels of all of us, hope, faith and joy bath each and every one of us. We feel and are encouraged.  We surrender to the highest good for our life. We keep the habit of success, winning and achieving. We are in love with our Self, our project and all the Universe.

Thank you, angels of all of us, for your support, nurturance and aid.

Peace to all,

Rev. Barbara
