After decades of messaging like this, is it any surprise that many parents are scared to let their kids walk or bike to school (or be judged for doing so)? A thread... #BackToSchool #FreeRangeKids
The reduction in walking & biking among kids has been one of the most effective social engineering initiatives of the past 50 years. Look at that behaviour change!
Powerful messaging combined with car-centric development have radically shifted how children move.

#BacktoSchool #tdih 1966 Grenada, Miss. school board postponed school rather than open doors to African American students who had registered to attend the two “white schools.” Read ⬇️a daily log from CRMvet.…
CRMvet log from schools opening, 10 days later: "Sept. 12. A huge white mob surrounds Grenada's schools. Equipped with 2-way radios, they bar all approaches. Scouts in pick-up trucks search for Negro students (grades 1-12) coming to school and direct the mob to attack them. " 1/6
"There are few police in evidence & they do nothing to halt the violence. Some cars carrying Negro children manage to drop the kids off, but others are blocked. The majority of the 250 or so students are walking to school in 1's and 2's. . ." 2/6

1. When I read this article in the Sunday Gleaner early this morning, I was concerned...yet again...The utter disregard for the safety and well-being of road users during the roadworks across the Corporate Area has been going on for years now. #backtoschool #roadworksJA #Jamaica
2. The article focuses on parents' fears for children's safety where road construction is ongoing. School starts back this wk for some. Inadequacy of @NWA_JA's Stephen Shaw's quoted response led me to decide to take a look at one area myself. #backtoschool #roadworksJA #Jamaica
@NWA_JA 3. @LexGoffe & I drove up to Manor Park & made our way down Constant Spring Road to Half Way Tree, stopping at multiple points to observe, walk & take photos. Manor Park was a mess & I pity the ppl who will have to use that route Monday morn. #backtoschool #roadworksJA #Jamaica

THREAD—#BackToSchool means big out-of-pocket expenses for U.S. teachers by @emmagg01
@emmagg01 "Teachers are gearing up to go back to their classrooms by opening their wallets to buy classroom supplies. An overwhelming majority of them—more than nine out of 10—will not be reimbursed for what they spend on supplies over the school year."
"The nation’s K–12 public school teachers shell out, on average, $459 on school supplies for which they are not reimbursed (adjusted for inflation to 2018 dollars), according to the NCES 2011–2012 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS).

1) We've all seen the massive, impersonal #UNRWA schools in #Gaza , but would you like to see what a private school looks like in Gaza?
Welcome to al Nasr Model Islamic School in Rimal neighborhood, Gaza City.
2) This is the second floor, and the inside of classrooms. I was surprised that it is co-ed. #Gaza #TheGazaYouDontSee
3) That vlog is from 2017, but I've watched more recent #backtoschool vids with these kids. Mera, the girl, was still going there last school year. She obviously adores her school and is even fond of her school uniform! Nice to hear in this day and age. #Gaza #TheGazaYouDontSee

Dudu takes Sara and Mira for their #backtoschool shopping. I think both of them together are too much energy for her to handle! #Gaza #TheGazaYouDontSee

Are you ready for the annual autumn #asthma spike in symptoms and exacerbations?

Happens every year, roughly 3 weeks after school starts.

Why? Schools are cess pools. Viruses = major asthma trigger.
Also weather changes, ragweed, mold contribute. Friday #Facts Thread⬇️
Important to prepare for autumn #asthma management by assessing current level of control AND having up to date prescriptions (home AND school) & treatment plan.

Asthma changes throughout the year & over time, which means treatment should be fluid to match needs.
#Asthma symptoms not well controlled?
-Assess current treatment, including technique & adherence
-Address comorbid conditions (allergies)
-Review environmental triggers & exposures

-THEN consider changing medication

Always talk with teachers about third party presenters. Your child deserves medically ethical, accurate, LGBT inclusive comprehensive health education.

Organizations listed below cannot provide it because they are agenda based.

New national guidelines for sexual health education are coming.

Anti-choice organizations cannot meet this criteria.…
Most antichoice presentations are provided by pregnancy care centres that are affiliated with the Canadian Association of Pregnancy Support Services (CAPSS) & must sign Core Documents including the following:

As college students go #backtoschool & begin to think about how their education will translate into a career, we’d like to share the experience of a young officer, “Lynn,” who never thought her unique education & skill-set would be a fit for CIA.
A Day in the Life of a Publications Officer

Lynn: “Publications Officer is our fancy name for an editor. My job is to make sure our intelligence products are reflective of CIA style & branding guidelines, properly classified & sourced, & easily readable for non-experts.”
Lynn: “I’m a mid-career hire. I spent several years teaching English in a public school before joining the Agency. I was lucky to know someone who worked in the Intelligence Community & pointed me toward this path because I didn’t even know that CIA had editors!”

As a kid I heard, "Think Global. Act local." The older I get the more I think of that. So while the news overwhelms us everyday w/ massive problems, I've begun to focus on smaller things I can help. & @DonorsChoose helps me support my local teachers.…
A few months ago, @DonorsChoose noticed me tweeting out their projects & gave me a spot on their National Advisory Council. & now that's it #BackToSchool time they made me a page w/ my local schools in the East Bay whose teachers need support. Here it is!…
There are over $200,00 worth of needs on @DonorsChoose among Oakand, Berkeley, Richmond, Richmond, & El Cerrito. That's a lot, but the East Bay is birthplace & home to some heavy hitters. I'm hoping some of you can help by spreading the word &/or donating.…
