Canadian parents facing the removal of children from their home are in for an uphill battle, and it’s important that their interests be protected. In Who Takes This Child?, author Allan Dare Pearce discusses the child protection laws, agencies, and processes in Canada. For more than thirty years, he has counseled and represented parents in their battles with the child protection authorities, preparing pleadings, arguing motions, and conducting trials. In Who Takes This Child?, he shows what happens in typical child protection cases in Canada. Pearce discusses • the overarching agency that’s assigned to protect children; • how the agency gets involved; • the process of apprehension and temporary (or interim) care; • plans of care; • how parents’ capacity is assessed; • the issues of mental health, disabilities, and the system; • parents with addiction and parents who abuse; • the trial; and • strategies for specific situations. Through examples and personal accounts, Pearce communicates the importance of understanding the child protection process so parents can keep custody of their children and avoid the foster care system.

Do you know an impulsive child? One who is full of exaggerations, quick to respond, careless with words, and acts without thinking. Do you have a child who gets out of his seat regularly while he's not suppose to, interrupts conversations, or jumps to the front of the line uninvited? Impulsiveness is the quick, natural response for these kids. They might do all these things and more (keep in mind, they generally do them rapidly). Nevertheless in the very same breathe, impulsive kids can be quick to defend, remorseful for poor decisions, and able to leap over obstacles in a single bound. There's a gift for us to discover in impulsiveness. The disciple, Peter, emulates both the strengths and weaknesses of impulsive behavior. Impulsiveness had Peter rushing into the water to meet Jesus, while also quickly cutting off a soldier's ear. He was quick to defend, responded without thinking, and passionate beyond words. His impulsiveness allowed him to experience the miracle of walking on water, while everyone else watched him from inside the boat. The beauty of Peter's impulsiveness is displayed within his life. Peter's impulsiveness allowed him to experience close encounters with God. He's authentic and real. He's growing and he's a challenge. But in the end, he's solid, and the guy others wanted to follow. Discovering the gift of impulsiveness begins in the life of Peter.

Urban school superintendents face unprecedented challenges. They must ensure that all students achieve a high level of performance despite a lack of resources, the intractable problems of race and poverty, a chaotic governance structure, and the often conflicting demands of teachers, parents, unions, and the community. This important book, edited by the co-directors of the prestigious Harvard Urban Superintendents Program (USP), explores the ways in which superintendents can make a difference in the lives of each child, every day, by being knowledgeable about and driven by what happens in the classroom. The editors and distinguished contributors cover a wide range of vital topics that superintendents face from the day they are hired to the day they retire, such as how superintendents can most effectively communicate their vision, plan strategically, institute instructional reform, engage the community, and allocate resources. The book is filled with illustrative examples of well-known superintendents who are trailblazing new means to achieve educational fairness for all children and are changing the landscape of urban school systems today. In addition, Every Child, Every Classroom, Every Day highlights the Urban Superintendents Program's Leadership Framework, which is designed to aid administrators and educators in decision making and achieving equity.

Coming 2010 : "By The Grace Of God" Autobiography by Marie L. Greenwood Website: Email: [email protected] Rocky Mountain News SPEAK OUT/GUEST COLUMN: An inspiration for DPS/Friday, October 19 at 12:00 AM/By Shepard Nevel When 14-year-old Marie sat down to discuss her college goals with her counselor at East High School, the advice she received was hardly encouraging. Despite the fact that Marie was a high-performing freshman in the top 10 percent of her class, the adviser told her not to waste her time. ""You’’re going to end up cooking or cleaning at somebody’’s house."" Her face flushed with anger, Marie stood up, emphatically announced that ""I am going to college,"" .... Marie graduated third in her class and went on to Colorado State College of Education in Greeley (now the University of Northern Colorado) where she earned her degree in 1935.Marie recalls that when she started teaching 70 years ago, she had two goals. ""I had to keep my job in the middle of the Depression and I had to keep the door open for others to come in."" Because the first African-American teacher hired by DPS on probation in 1934 did not work out, Marie was mindful that her success would affect other black teachers for years to come. And her starting teacher’’s salary of $1,200 a year was like ""manna from heaven,"" Marie writes, because it enabled her to move her parents from a ""dim basement apartment"" to a more comfortable house. "EVERY CHILD CAN LEARN should be on the required reading list of all current and aspiring teachers!" Sincerely, Dr. Anthony P. Young, Psy. D. This book is a treasure. It is important and necessary reading for all teachers and parents. Thank you Mrs. Greenwood for being, thank you for sharing your wisdom. Gayle Banks Hamlett, MEd. Psy.D. Psychologist and Educator
