We’ve been told, by those who tell, that the Law of Attraction, as we currently understand it, can be found in the Sacred Texts of the various world religions. Well, the show is going to look at those texts to see what they really say. What we will find there is likely to surprise you, for they actually do tell us about a law of attraction, but not the one we’ve come to understand at all. If the sacred texts give us any wisdom at all, it will not be found in assumption and presupposition that tries to prove itself after the fact. Nor will it be found in taking words out of context or literalizing. Rather it will be found in the actual meaning of the words. So, let’s check this out together and see what we find.
Our nation’s education has been an issue for decades. Dr. Milton Chen’s latest book, “Education Nation” delves into the challenges and solutions to get our nation’s education back on track. Dr. Milton Chen will discuss his ideas on making this a reality. Chen will join Dr. Marla Sloane, host of Mind Over Matters
on the World Talk Radio Variety Channel (www.worldtalkradio.com/worldtalkradio/vshow.aspx?sid=1868) Thursday, March 31st at 1:00 Pacific Time.
Dr. Milton Chen poses this challenge: Imagine an Education Nation, a learning society where the education of children and adults is the highest national priority, on par with a strong economy, high employment, and national security. Chen says that the most important step in making an Education Nation a reality is not a greater investment of dollars, but a greater understanding of what this new educational system should look like. It will require bringing the many “islands of excellence” featured on (www.edutopia.org) to the center of this nation, moving the edges of change to the middle.
Chen’s book is his effort to “curate” the marvelous (www.edutopia.org) collection of films, articles, and multimedia features from the past few years. He has organized this collection according to what he sees as the six “edges” of innovations redefining schools, teaching, and learning. He will discuss each of these “edges” on the show.
Dr. Milton Chen is senior fellow and director, emeritus at The George Lucas Educational Foundation (GLEF), a non-profit foundation in the San Francisco Area that utilizes its website, Edutopia.org, and documentary films to communicate a new vision for 21st Century schools. He served as director of GLEF and has been the founding director of the KQED Center for Education (PBS) in San Francisco, director of research at Sesame Workshop in New York, and an assistant professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Chen was one of 35 Fulbright New Century Scholars conducting research on access and diversity issues in education. He served as a trustee of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and appointed to the National Park Service Advisory Board. He serves as board chairman for the Panasonic Foundation. His book, Education Nation: Six Leading Edges of Innovation in our Schools, was selected as one of the 10 best education books of 2010 by the American School Boards Journal.
