Extractions: The Impact of the Indymedia Movement When the World Trade Organization met in Seattle in November 1999, hundreds of journalists and thousands of protesters converged on the city. The journalists represented, by and large, a handful of corporate media organizations, while the protesters represented a diverse group of interests with complaints against the WTO and its policies. Concerned that the major news organizations would fail to cover the WTO protests adequately, if at all, a group of Seattle media activists planned a proactive approach. Months prior to the WTO meeting, they formed the Independent Media Center (or Indymedia). They gathered donations, organized volunteers, registered a Web site, www.indymedia.org , and set up a newsroom with computers, Internet lines, digital editing systems and streaming audio and video. When the WTO showed up, Indymedia offered volunteer journalists a place to file stories, photos, and videos of the protests and upload them to the Web. As Indymedia's behind-the-scenes reports of the protests came online, "an amazing thing happened," reported the Christian Science Monitor.
Extractions: Click here to view King's 21c information on Yale University's Bush Center site. The School of the 21 Century (21C) , also known as Family Resource Centers in some communities, is a model for school-based or school linked child care and family support services designed to promote the optimal growth and development of children. Core components of the School of the 21st Century are: The School of the 21st Century was first presented in 1987 by Dr. Edward Zigler, Director of the Bush Center and Professor of Psychology at Yale University. To date the program has been implemented in more than 1200 schools in 20 states across the country. The flexibility of the School of the 21st Century allows each site to adapt the program to the specific needs of its community and coordinate the program with existing services. As a result, each site operates somewhat differently. Schools implementing 21C can work closely with the Yale Bush Center through the 21C Network to develop the core components of the model.
Background - School-Based Health Centers Rosslyn Carter and Betty Bumpers, wife of arkansas Senator Dale a stop at one ofMemphis' schoolbased health as both print and broadcast media converged for http://www.healthinschools.org/sbhcs/publicrelations.asp
Extractions: Last July, Louisiana Governor Mike Foster, a Republican, signed a $2.65 million line item in the state budget that authorized significant new funds for school-based health centers. This would not be so unusual unless one takes into account that, only a few years before, Las Vegas odds makers would have cast the probability of this outcome as something approximating the cancellation of Mardi Gras. What happened over time in Louisiana was due, in large measure, to superb public relations work, and it's symptomatic of a trend that has seen school-based health centers grow from 350 nationally in 1992 to nearly 900 this year. School-based healthcare that addresses a wide range of health problems traces its origins to the early 70s when medical visionaries in Boston, St. Paul and Dallas independently recognized that bringing healthcare to children in schools could overcome barriers to needed care. For many children, health problems - from sports injuries to depression, from asthma to substance abuse -stood a much better chance of being prevented and treated in schoo ls than in traditional medical settings. After all, emergency rooms weren't designed to solve basic health problems, and for children who lacked a regular source of care, a doctor's office or a community clinic was either unaffordable or located away from home or school. In the latter case, getting care was difficult for working parents and others who rarely have hours available to arrange appointments, travel to the health provider, and return home hours later.

Extractions: Preliminary Guidance for Migrant Education Program, Title I, Part C Public Law 103-382 To help all children reach high academic standards, many states, school districts, and schools will need a new kind of technical assistance. They will need comprehensive assistance that is driven by the needs of families and children and that can provide tools and information to help them leverage all available resources in order to improve teaching and learning for all children. To that end, the Department is creating regional technical assistance centers to provide comprehensive, high-quality assistance and information. The Depart ment is also changing the way it relates to the field by shifting its focus from monitoring for compliance to providing support to enhance program quality. The Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), which houses the Office of Migrant Education, has a new organizational structure that is built around ten regional service teams. Existing program offices, including the Office of Migrant Education, will retain a small program base, but will provide most services to OESE grantees through teams that have staff with expertise in OESE's programs. This new structure signals a new relationship with states and local operating agencies. Rather than focus on providing program-specific advice, the restructured OESE will use cross-program teams to encourage and support state and local efforts to integra te services and collaborate across programs. In anticipation of this change, OESE began in 1994-95 to conduct integrated reviews of federally funded education programs. Integrated reviews are on-site observations and assessments performed by a team of s taff members from two or more program offices within the Department. Each focused on the progress of systemic reform efforts within a state and explored how individual federal programs fit within that broad reform effort. The Office of Migrant Education participated in all of the initial integrated reviews.
