Education And Accurate Information Are LIGHT Producers.

This is a short blog in response to the Oct. 3, 2014 article in the New Haven Independent titled: Schools Chief Fields Brainteasers At “Night Out”

I commend the superintendent for making himself and other administrators available to parents and teachers in this interactive manner. It is helpful to the administration, and certainly to parents.  By openly discussing issues by which various parents are challenged, and listening to the answers and suggestions being offered by teachers, administrators and other parents, this will help to prevent the same issues from recurring for other parents. At least it gives them insights into how to address similar issues and might even help to prevent them. It also helps the administration to identify where changes are needed so that effective and appropriate planning can be put in place.

This type of positive interaction and access also helps to prevent a building up of frustration on the part of some, and allows the senior education administrators and the Supt to get first-hand information about existing concerns.  I am pleased to hear that this type of open, honest and respectful dialogue, listening and learning will continue in the NHPS district. At OneWorld we believe it is better to light candles of information than to curse the darkness in silence.  Education and accurate information are LIGHT producers.  Please read the complete article in the NHI linked below

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

Partnership for the Bay's Future, in Close-Up

An article in the Bay Area magazine Gentry takes a careful look at how Partnership for the Bay's Future, LISC's collaboration with the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Genentech, the Ford Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and others is tackling the region's extreme affordable housing shortage, alongside transportation access and economic opportunity. "Housing has to be considered everybody's challenge and everybody's opportunity," says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones in the piece. That collective ownership and the diversity of sectors in the partnership "are the only way we're really going to make true progress."

Talent Development Catalyzes Opportunity

A strong and vibrant workforce helps fuel community growth as well as business success. That’s why Union Pacific Railroad is supporting LISC Financial Opportunity Centers and contributing the expertise of its staff to industrial training programs that help people compete for family-sustaining jobs. Union Pacific’s Chiquita Morgan urges employers to "get out from behind our walls" and help advance the efforts of workforce development agencies, neighborhood groups and others who are helping people build a stronger financial future for themselves and their community.
