Last year education leaders throughout Eastern Virginia took a hard look at the way our students are being educated.  They realized that equality in schools - providing the same for everyone - only works when students are all in the same place and need the same things to succeed.  Instead, it has become necessary to provide equity in education - honoring that all students are different and will need different things to succeed. So how does that translate into the classroom?  On the next Another View, we'll get an update on "Excellence Through Equity".  Our guests include Jim Roberts, PhD, Superintendent, Chesapeake Public Schools; Sheli Porter, Director of High School Curriculum and Instruction, Chesapeake Public Schools; and Rashard Wright, Chief Schools Officer, Virginia Beach Public Schools.  Join us for the next Another View, Friday, March 17 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

What is your image of a social worker?  Is it one of distrust, that the social worker's job is to disrupt your life by impacting your family or means of support?  Or is it one of trust, that the social worker is there to assist your family with whatever issues you may face?  March is "Social Work Month", and on the next Another View we'll talk about social workers in our schools.  What is their role? How do they make a difference? Why are they necessary as part of a full public education?  Our guests include Sandra Williamson-Ashe, Ed.D, Assistant Professor, The Ethelyn R. Strong School of Social Work, Norfolk State University; State Senator Lionel Spruill Sr.; and Kirsten Ericksen , Ph.D, Assistant Professor, The Ethelyn R. Strong School of Social Work, Norfolk State University. Join us for the next Another View, Friday, March 3 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

On the next edition of Another View on Health, hear the inspiring yet cautionary story of Ellen Jones, a woman who may soon face surgery to implant a defibrillator so she can stay alive.  Ellen suffers from heart disease, but it took years to diagnose because she was physically active, ate a healthy diet, and drank plenty of water.  Heart disease is the number one killer in women though it's known as the "silent disease".  Co-host and cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby will share the latest in research and treatment in heart disease.
