A diploma is just a piece of paper but a good education is a priceless gift the you worked for and no one can take it away.

That’s why I warn my students that there are only two kind of students. Good ones and bad students, and don’t let me find you’re the latter.

According to published academic reports, Questions regarding the value of a college education have spiked recently, highlighted by high-profile media coverage.

TEACHER APPRECIATION

On this last day of teacher appreciation week, I wish to pay tribute to my late mom, who was a teacher, Miss Calhoun and Ms. Gibson.

As a young immigrant, Ms. Calhoun and Ms. Gibson were my elementary teachers who helped me learn to read, write, and speak English and to speak up and fly like an Eagle.

In the '90s, I moved to City Island - A Slice of NYC Paradise to build News 12 The Bronx. I then hired and trained my new staff. Following a successful launch, I was recruited by The Associated Press to serve as its founding television news, NY Bureau Chief.

ACHIEVEMENT

As the school year ends, many students will be only too happy to see math classes in their rearview mirrors.

It may seem to some of us non-mathematicians that geometry and trigonometry were created by the Greeks as a form of torture, so imagine our amazement when we heard two high school seniors had proved a mathematical puzzle that was thought to be impossible for 2,000 years.

City Images values academic freedom and free speech as they must be fundamental principles within all educational institutions.

These principles not only foster a robust exchange of ideas but also uphold the integrity and mission of colleges and universities. It's essential for schools, both public and private, to protect these freedoms and ensure that all viewpoints are respected and not subject to censorship or disproportionate punishment.

OFF THE CHARTS

Are US Charter schools slowly dismantling and surely destroying the American public educational system?

While public schools serve the local community by accepting all local students who enroll, charter schools are selective and only serve a small segment of students. They also tend to be more racially segregated than traditional public schools and often fail to serve students with special needs.

USA DUPED

The Bronx might seem an improbable setting for an academic miracle with an area of 42 square miles with 1,472,654 residents.

I'm a university professor here, the ninth-most-populous in the U.S., where crimes are common. Yet the latest data shows graduation rates at the city’s schools are surging. Alas, such gains are not showing up in other academic indicators. However, I have lectured on the West Coast, the Midwest, the South, and the northeastern American states.

In the cultural practice of self-proclaimed pronouns, we can consider ourselves to be it. My favorite mascot is our Maverick and my favorite country music band. Beside
The Mavericks being the official Mercy University mascot, I also support the Dallas Mavericks and am a fan of this country music band. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=the+mavericks -Raul Malo founded the group in 1989 with my Tocayo, Robert Reynolds.

Therefore, since 'They are' Singular Nonbinary...
While using the nonbinary they, we use the verb that sounds the most familiar. "They are" is still the correct choice when referring to a single person, rather than "they are." However, whenever someone chooses pronouns they and them, it means that instead of referring to the person as he/him or she/her, you’re being asked to refer to the person as they/them. Simple enough, right? Well, except that if you’re unfamiliar with the use, you might wonder what kind of a verb goes with that pronoun: it is my friend. Get over it… And so it goes!

The faculty of Manhattan College has now made it official and issued a scathing failing grade to President Milo Riverso.

The president of Manhattan College, pictured in a screen grab from YouTube during an introductory video message is in hot water and the temperature may reach a boiling point.

It now appears that Rivers’s reversal has brought the ire of the staff following his college course cuts and leveraged layoffs.

DELIGHTFUL DAY

This was a wet and foggy NYC morning and I felt like staying in bed, but I heard from my kids, which is always a blessing.

It is also the first week of the rest of my academic career. One of my former students who is now in a position to hire me, made an offer I could not refuse. It involves educating a diverse group of 50 university scholars. My life seems to be bringing a wave of change, setting the course for personal and professional progress as I use my naturally given analytical skills to sift through any ambiguities.
