students free

once my private instructor actually said to me “don’t let poor students play oboe or bassoon. They’ll never be any good because they won’t be able to afford reeds, lessons, or good instruments, and you’ll be wasting your time even if they can pay you for lessons.”

so I’ve made a point to give my students handmade reeds for free and I loan them books that I buy and I will never call a poor student a waste of my time because they are not.


I’ve been waiting a long time for a major political party in Canada to push for free university tuition & debt relief. Glad to finally see some movement in this direction from the NDP.

Student debt, while not quite as severe as in the USA, is a serious problem for my generation. I’m almost $30,000 in debt, and that’s likely going to rise before I graduate.

Made a set of simple printables, because I was missing some things before the start of the school year. 






Claremont McKenna students may not graduate after protesting right wing Heather Mac Donald

  • Four students at one prestigious liberal arts school may not graduate because of their protest of conservative writer Heather Mac Donald.
  • Mac Donald believes that racial bias in the criminal justice system is a myth that puts police officers’ lives in danger.
  • On April 6, Mac Donald gave a speech at Claremont McKenna College, which is located roughly 40 minutes east of Los Angeles. 
  • She was met by a group of 250 students from CMC and neighboring colleges. The protesters chanted slogans of “Black Lives Matter” and eventually shut down the talk. 
  • Students involved in the protest now say that the school’s administration is threatening to prevent them from walking at graduation on May 13 and withholding their transcripts for violating the school’s code of conduct. Read more (5/11/17)

anonymous asked:

Student 1: "Are you sure you like girls? Are you sure it's not just a phase?" Student 2: "No I'm not sure. It's a Thursday and I'm not sure of anything on Thursdays. Only fools who want to get taken are sure on Thursdays. It's why not a single professor will schedule an exam on Thursdays. So, are you sure you want to ask that question?"

Growing up, Viola Davis depended on the school lunch program the GOP wants to gut

  • For Viola Davis, who won best supporting actress at the Oscars on Sunday, free school lunches were a lifeline that helped her through a tough childhood.
  • “Most of the time, the school lunch was the only meal I had,” Davis told AARP magazine in 2015. “I would befriend kids whose mothers cooked three meals a day and go to their homes when I could.”
  • If Davis attended U.S. schools today, there’s no guarantee she’d benefit from the same anti-hunger programs.
  • Republicans hope to slash the budget of school meal programs, meaning fewer students would get free or subsidized meals, PBS reported. Read more (2/27/17 2:44 PM)

Oklahoma Republican wants to turn 82,000 non-English-speaking kids in to ICE to save money

  • A Republican Oklahoma lawmaker is being hotly criticized after proposing the state cut spending by rounding up its 82,000 non-English-speaking students and turning them over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
  • Republican Rep. Mike Ritze is also being criticized by members of his own party for suggesting Oklahoma isn’t obligated to provide an education to undocumented immigrants.
  • The state is facing a $900 million budget gap and Ritze told local CBS affiliate KWTV that turning the kids over to ICE could save $60 million.
  • “Identify them and then turn them over to ICE to see if they truly are citizens,” Ritze said in a Wednesday news segment, adding, “Do we have to really educate non-citizens?” Actually, yes, you do.
  • In its 1982 Plyler v. Doe decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled states can’t deny students a free public education based on their immigration status, according to the Washington Post. Read more (5/12/17)
