    I just seen this on the news.

    FLOCABULARY



    They say this have been out since 2005 and some of the schools that are using it have had good results. One school in N.C. only has a 5% dropout rate and another school boast the highest test scores in the district.


    Does anyone have any first hand insight on this?

    What are your opinions on it?

    If it's effective, I like it. If not, I don't. At first glance, it seems good.

    In the experience I have being a student not a teacher I'd say anything that actually makes people want to participate in their own learning is going to be good and will achieve some results. A lot of learning to music is done in Europe - I'm not sure what their success rates are there.

    As with all things,you will only be told the positive side of things, what about the sholls where this hasan't worked? Also,looking at what hip-hop is,this can be viewed as an agenda to keep our minds right where they are. Just my opinion of coures.

    Peace!

    That is a possibility, it was created by two White dudes.


    Personally, I think they are opportunist about the money....at this point, but my mind is still open, the jury is still out.

    As far as I know KRS one or BDP have not developed it into a curriculum, promoted it in schools, and make claims of reducing the drop-out rate or increasing test scores. Correct?

    actually ur wrong

    It is developed into a curriculum and Kris has taught, lectured, performed and shared throughout the country and outside of the country

    in pretty much every ivy league school, and numerous high schools

    and i'm actually all done with this conversation, because we not gonna tear down the work of the "BLACK MAN"

    we want our own schools, because the current one is not geared toward us or for us, and it's intention is not growth

    current schools are institutions and programming facilities

    WE ARE ALREADY OUR OWN NATION AND I COULD REALLY GIVE A **** ABOUT A TEST SCORE OR A DROP OUT RATE

    no disrespect, but this is MIND

    Do you actually think that KRS is the Only rapper that is being played? And I maintain that we are continuing to steered in a path that leads away for our astronauts,pilots,inventors,etc by having rap,that has many artists that promotes drugs,sex,and violence,being use as a way to help us learn. Argue for your limitations and eventually the will become yours.

    And saying that someone is wrong is not proof enough,show a link or article,if not,Full speed is just as right as you are.

    Peace!
