Reading Roadmap afterschool tutoring model increases student test scores

Program demonstrates how afterschool can impact early childhood literacy

Using school data to target student needs and achieve improvement based on school assessments is the best way to impact state and national assessments.”

— Andrew Hysell, Reading Roadmap Executive Director

TOPEKA, KANSAS, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — New research demonstrates that the Kansas Reading Roadmap is a promising model for how schools and nonprofits can leverage afterschool programs to improve students’ early reading proficiency.

An in-depth look at the accomplishments of KRR from the 2017-18 school year is now available on the program’s website. KRR summarized the detailed analysis in an evaluation brief.

The report states 5,000 attendees of the Reading Roadmap afterschool programs across 61 sites demonstrated dramatic improvement on school-administered assessments over the course of the past school year. Based upon three separate school-administered assessments, KRR schools experienced 50 percent higher grade-level reading growth school-wide compared to a control group of similar schools.

On average, by the end of the school year, students attending the afterschool program were five times more likely to be grade-level readers than their peers. Furthermore, children attending afterschool were two times less likely to be categorized as needing intensive intervention services.

What is particularly notable about the reading improvement was that it was observed across three different commercial universal screeners—AIMSWeb, DIBELS and FastBridge. These screeners are used by schools around the country to measure grade-level reading and are supported by significant research.

“A core tenant of the Reading Roadmap is that the only test that matters is the school’s test,” said Andrew Hysell, Executive Director of the Reading Roadmap. “Using school data to target student needs and achieve improvement based on school assessments is the best way to impact state and national assessments.”

Policymakers, educators, and parents look to measures like state assessments and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to measure how well students are reading.

The Reading Roadmap provides a comprehensive literacy solution designed for an afterschool environment. It includes a variety of interventions that target the five pillars of literacy including the foundational skills of phonemic awareness and phonics, as well as fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.

The Reading Roadmap aligns this comprehensive, skills-based approach with partner school data through a system called the Kansas Multi-Tier System of Supports and Alignment (Kansas MTSS). Schools that use Kansas MTSS inform their afterschool programs with the data necessary to provide personalized interventions for striving readers. The synergy of school and out-of-school alignment is the secret to the model’s success at improving reading for all students.

KRR is a partnership between local schools, the Kansas Technical Assistance System Network (TASN), and DCF. Launched in 2013, KRR features summer and family engagement components that complement its afterschool efforts. The organization has made its specially designed afterschool and family engagement curricula available to schools who wish to employ it.

The KRR 2017-18 Annual Report provides a comprehensive statistical data summary of the progress made by students involved with KRR. The full report can be viewed online on the organization’s website.

Last year, KRR provided more than:

• 945,000 hours of free childcare
• 590,000 hours of out-of-school learning opportunities
• 13,900 hours of training to 420 school district employees
• 1,300 part- and full-time employment opportunities

We stand here united as human rights defenders from around the world, determined to bring about freedom for all, starting with awareness of these basic human rights.”

— Erica Rodgers, National Director of Youth for Human Rights

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, December 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Human Rights Day 2018, in a world where fundamental human rights are being abused, a group of young advocates gathered together at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, to march in support of the vital necessity of immediately implementing human rights education on a global scale. Led by Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) and joined by other national and international organizations, including Peace Lights and the Pan-African Diaspora Youth Association (PADYA), the wave of passionate activists dressed in blue in support of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, marched from the Lincoln Memorial to the World War II Memorial.

The march was part of a global series of events led by Youth for Human Rights International in honor of Human Rights Day and on the occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the document which, if widely applied, could end human rights abuses everywhere.

“The most impactful aspect of the march was the attention to the cause. The more awareness we bring to human rights, the more people will realize how little they know about them. Once we're on the same page with that, we can start moving forward with teaching and educating our youth!” said Somalian fashion model, Soukeyna, who participated in the march. She further stated, “We develop most of our habits when we are young. If we are taught early on about the non-negotiable human rights as listed in the UDHR, we will be encouraged to stand up for what we deserve and carry those habits into adulthood.”

With the end of the Second World War and the creation of the United Nations, the international community vowed never to allow human rights atrocities to occur again. Thus, 70 years ago on December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was born listing out 30 basic human rights and starting a worldwide awareness campaign.

The United Nations launched their current human rights awareness campaign #StandUp4HumanRights in December of 2016. This year, in celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Youth for Human Rights DC and other national and international chapters have been key champions in this campaign. Erica Rodgers, the US National Director of Youth for Human Rights International and organizer of the march commented, “We stand here united as human rights defenders from around the world, determined to bring about freedom for all, starting with awareness of these basic human rights.”

About Youth for Human Rights:

Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is a nonprofit organization with chapters around the world whose mission is to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become valuable advocates for tolerance, respect and peace. YHRI teaches human rights education both in the classroom and in nontraditional educational settings such as through international summits, art series, concerts and other interactive community events. Their most recent campaign has included #KnowYour30 with the deliberate purpose of increasing awareness of the 30 human rights every person has – and how they are a part of everyday life.

Bipartisan lawmakers voice support for Iran uprising, condemn Tehran’s terrorism against dissidents

Rep. Engel at OIAC event

Bipartisan members of congress joined Iranian Americans from 40 states at a Congressional event to express support for protesters in Iran.

There have been lots of demonstrations going on in Iran where ppl are protesting. I’m here to stand in solidarity with the people of Iran and to say to the government of Iran: What are you afraid of?”

— Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY)

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, December 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bipartisan lawmakers voice support for Iran uprising, condemn Tehran’s terrorism against dissidents

Bipartisan members of congress joined Iranian Americans from 40 states at a Congressional event to express support for protesters in Iran, announce bipartisan congressional initiative H.Res.1034, and highlight Iranian regime’s malign international role.

Timed to coincide with the anniversary of nationwide protests in Iran, the gathering, moderated by OIAC Advisory Board member Dr. Ramesh Sepehrrad, showcased congressional and community support for the Iranian people and their democratic opposition movement.

In his opening remarks, congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA) noted, “As the journey of the mullahs has become more extreme, the international resistance to them has become more resolute. We’ve seen this in the liberation of the MEK freedom fighters trapped in Iraq.” We’ve also “seen it with the 105 of my colleagues, here in the House of Representatives who co-sponsored my bill, House Resolution 1034 that we affirmed our committed support of the Iranian people’s desire for a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear republic of Iran,” Mr. McClintock added.

He was followed by Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), expected to be the incoming chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, who referred to the street protests in Iran, “There have been lots of demonstrations going on in Iran where people are protesting…I’m here to stand in solidarity with the people of Iran and to say to the government of Iran: What are you afraid of? Fair and free elections? Let the people of Iran determine their destiny.”

Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX) reminded the community members of their important role. “It’s obvious that what you do is making a difference, because you have gotten the folks in Iran, the mullahs, real nervous,” he said. “Don’t ever let the mullahs keep you awake at night, because you see, you keep them awake at night by fighting for freedom in Iran.”

“I’m proud to co-sponsor House Resolution 1034 which condemns Iran’s state sponsored terrorism and expresses support for the Iranian people fighting for free, democratic, and secular future,” added Congresswoman Judy Chu (D-CA).

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) recognized U.S. Teamsters Union for, “joining in support of the Iranian truck drivers protesting for democracy in Iran.” He commended the Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi for “her continuing advocacy for women’s rights and minority rights in Iran,” while lauding the opposition movement, the MEK, for exposing the nuclear sites of the Iranian regime in 2002.

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) noted, “The love of liberty burns in your heart. All the way from the time of Camp Ashraf where innocent people, unarmed people were being slaughtered by the mullah regime…and yes, right now…all freedom loving people, in supporting those people who are now in the streets in Iran demanding that the mullahs leave.”

“I’m a co-chair of the Congressional Iran Human Rights and Democracy Caucus, and I’m proud of that. I will continue to condemn the Iranian regime’s abuses of human rights and its support for terrorism,” Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) said.

“The change of Congress will not stop us from fighting for victory,” said Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), adding, “as new majority is in power [in the House], please know that democracy will not be far from our heart, our mind and our lips.”

Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) noted also that all must stand in solidarity with the people of Iran, but “it’s so important for the United States to not lose its focus” on the Iranian regime.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Bahrain Adam Ereli, also addressed the event. “I think it’s clear to anybody who follows Iran closely that the mullahs are afraid. And they’re afraid of you…When Iran [regime] blames Maryam Rajavi, the Iranian opposition and the Iranian American diaspora for these protests, it just tells you how afraid they are, how vulnerable they are, and how effective you are,” he said.

U.S. Army Colonel Fernando Guadalupe Regularly Gives Back to Society Through Volunteering

FORT JACKSON, SOUTH CAROLINA, USA, December 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Colonel Fernando Guadalupe emphasizes the positive impact volunteering with local organizations has on communities. Apart from his regular Army service, he volunteers with groups like the Order of St. Michael and the Knights of Columbus to empower his local community and beyond.

Fernando Guadalupe sets an example to other community volunteers, serving his country as Army Colonel as well as volunteering regularly through outreach programs. With decades of Army service to his name, he’s no novice to protecting his country and spreading positive values in society. However, involvement in charitable organizations allows him to uplift the individual areas of society that may be suffering from threats present in our own country.

There are countless ways to give back today, with hundreds of programs and various missions that seek to improve their community. Fernando Guadalupe hopes that his own involvement will help inspires others to give back, no matter how great or small their efforts.

“Local municipal representatives and online forums can point people to volunteer opportunities in their community,” says Fernando Guadalupe. “There are opportunities in almost every neighborhood; you just have to do the research to find where you can help.”

Fernando Guadalupe has supported groups in his community for years, contributing to the Order of St. Michael and the Knights of Columbus, among others.

With the Order of St. Michael, he lends a helping hand to those struggling in society, in finances or health, and in faith. The order provides a community for people who are looking to enrich their traditional faith experiences and who may need guidance through difficult times. Volunteers like Fernando Guadalupe act as mentors and friends, uplifting members in their society who may not get the attention otherwise.

Fernando has been an active member in the Knights of Columbus for years, helping spread their founding principles of charity, unity, and fraternity in local communities. The Knights were formed over a hundred years ago to render financial aid to community members and their families. They provided assistance to the sick and disabled, gave support to the needy, and shared intellectual fellowship. Today, they carry on these efforts and provide public relief work, education, and social welfare through charity and volunteering.

“Not all organizations are Christian-based, but they all help in their own ways to support growth in our communities,” says Fernando Guadalupe. “You can certainly find outreach programs in your churches, but you can also ask around at schools and municipal groups.”

Apart from regular involvement in these two organizations, Fernando Guadalupe contributes to World Vision Charity and the Missionaries of Charity. He’s a highly-decorated Army officer who’s served multiple tours to Iraq and Afghanistan and shares his insights through education and leadership. You’d be hard pressed to find a more dedicated citizen and countryman.

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig Scores Huge Win in First Amendment Rights Case

Learn more at www.DBLLawyers.com

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig prevails in a win for the Republican Party of Virginia before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit

By affirming the lower court’s decision, the Fourth Circuit has implicitly upheld the First Amendment rights of the Republican party—and in fact, all political parties.”

— Cortland Putbrese

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, a leading corporate and intellectual property law firm with law offices across the U.S., Puerto Rico, London, Toronto, and China, announces a significant victory in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit for the statewide Republican Party of Virginia. Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig has been defending the Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) and the Frederick County Republican Committee (FCRC) in a lawsuit filed against them by plaintiffs Jay Marts and Dana Newcomb.

Mr. Marts and Mr. Newcomb are two former Republican Party members who lost their party membership due to their public advocacy against the GOP’s nominees. The plaintiffs filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia, alleging that the Republican Party’s membership requirements violated their constitutional rights. The district court dismissed the case because political parties are not government entities and the Republican Party’s management of its own internal affairs did not constitute actionable government conduct, but instead was an exercise of the GOP’s own fundamental right to freedom of association. Because the Republican Party’s actions were not government conduct, but instead were private activities protected by the First Amendment, the district court found that Mr. Marts and Mr. Newcomb had not properly alleged a constitutional violation.

The plaintiffs then appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, claiming that the district court erred in dismissing their suit. The Fourth Circuit disagreed and ruled in favor of the Republican Party. "This is an important win. By affirming the lower court’s decision, the Fourth Circuit has implicitly upheld the First Amendment rights of the Republican party—and in fact, all political parties—to manage their own internal affairs,” stated Cortland Putbrese, the lead partner on this case. In addition to Mr. Putbrese, DBL lawyers Kevin Streit and Erick Poorbaugh assisted on this matter.

Patrick Brown's Media and Book Tour

Patrick Brown makes comeback in Brampton

Patrick Brown wins Brampton

Over 200 people attended the Brampton Book Launch

“Politics is described as a bloodsport … this book [has] taken it to a new level. I would call it a Game of Thrones kind of assassination.”

— —Cynthia Mulligan, CityNews, Toronto

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, December 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — We are pleased to confirm the Ottawa Region Book launch for Patrick Brown’s bestselling book TAKEDOWN.

It is your chance to meet and hear Mayor Patrick Brown speak about politics. Learn about the backroom deals, the consultants and key players who ultimately played a role in his hasty resignation as party leader. This is a story about a person who rebuilt the party from the ground up with an inclusive and diverse group of passionate Canadians and for Patrick’s vision for Ontario and a better Canada.

Last month, Optimum released the biggest Canadian political book of this century. We did not do so for the headlines, but in order to provide the public with a profound look into the human condition and the driving forces of greed, power, deceit — particularly how these forces manifest themselves as collusion, conspiracy, and flat-out lies.

The book, Takedown by Patrick Brown, can now be found on both the Indigo and Amazon Bestsellers lists. It instantly hit number one on Amazon’s Hot New Releases and Political Bestsellers lists.

The true legacy of this book will be revealed gradually over the coming months and years. Indeed, there will be significant breaking news stories coming out in the next few weeks that underline just one of the central themes outlined in the book.

We urge everyone who cares about politics, fairness, and justice to pay attention to news out of British Columbia and the ongoing investigations into organized crime and money laundering. Pay particular attention to the connections to the Liberal and PC parties in Ontario and a “purging” of sorts through a mainstream financial institution.

The story is far from over.

American Made for the Holiday

Unique products made in Gettysburg, PA

Stop by and see if Berk the Battle Dog is visiting today.

Small town values and great customer service with nationwide reach.

You just don’t see this type of pride in providing customer service anymore. If quality products and service at a fair price are important to you, I highly recommend GettysGear.”

— Grant, Customer from Humble, TX

GETTYSBURG, PA, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the continued globalization of our retail shelves, there seems to be an ongoing challenge to find American made products to meet the high standards of the discerning consumer. But in southern Pennsylvania, there is a company that prides itself on making its products in and around its home town of Gettysburg.

Their philosophy is really quite simple; produce high quality products at reasonable prices while providing exceptional customer service. “At GettysGear, we pride ourselves on maintaining the highest production standards on our offering of products that range from coffee, pottery, hand cast aluminum, cigars and more”, said Cary Gregory, President. He continued, “you can find a wide array of unique and interesting items made right here in Gettysburg, PA with a 4.76 out of 5 star customer rating.”

As an added point of interest if visiting Gettysburg, stop by and see the folks at GettysGear at their “new” downtown location in the 1800’s era Carriage House of the Historic Swope Manor located in the heart of downtown.

Restoring Human Rights and Dignity in the Field of Mental Health

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is hosting a continuing legal education event on the Florida mental health law for defense attorneys next month.

While the original stated intention of the Baker Act was to protect the rights of citizens sent for involuntary psychiatric examination, it has become a source of great abuse.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit watchdog organization dedicated to restoring dignity and human rights to the field of mental health, is hosting a continuing legal education event on the Florida mental health law for defense attorneys next month. The free event, being held on January 25th from 1-5pm at the headquarters for CCHR located at 109 N. Fort Harrison Ave. in downtown Clearwater, will cover strategies to effectively serve families and to eradicate violations of the law.

Commonly called the Baker Act, Florida’s mental health allows for men, women and children to be taken into custody and held for involuntary psychiatric examination across the state and in the 16 years from FY01/02 to FY16/17, involuntary examinations more than doubled. [1]

Attendees of the event will hear from attorneys Justin Drach of Theole Drach Law, Carmen Miller, a former Public Defender now in private practice specializing in Baker Act cases and Kendra Parris of Parris Law. Also speaking will be the president of the Florida chapter of CCHR, Diane Stein.

“Over the past several years changes have been made to the Baker Act which specifically better protect the rights of children and hosting this event will help educate defense attorneys on these changes as well as successful actions in defending clients being held for involuntary psychiatric examination,” said Stein.

While the original stated intention of the Baker Act was to protect the rights of citizens sent for involuntary psychiatric examination, it has become a source of great abuse prompting CCHR Florida in 2016 to launch a campaign for the purpose of educating Floridians on their rights under this law.

To learn more about the Baker Act or to reserve a seat at the next seminar please call 727-442-8820 or visit http://www.cchrflorida.org/events/.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org.
