Dan Perkins: Author | Financial Planner | Speaker | Philanthropist | Mentor

Our guest today is Author Dan Perkins he will be discussing his latest children’s book “ Why Can’t Grammy Remember Me?”

 

 

 

 

As with the novels he writes, Dan Perkins is a multi-faceted character. He resonates a life filled with action, travel, family and of course, writing. The story-lines of his books, although fiction, could be pulled today’s headlines. His sense of the political arena is keen and sharp, with a wit to match. From his speaking engagements to his radio program, to his often appearances on TV programs, Dan keeps his opinions in the public view. While not always politically “correct” he is always politically “astute.”

 

Growing in popularity and with a following that rivals long-time authors, this relatively newcomer to the political thriller genre has a list of followers waiting for the next book to come off the press. And Dan never fails to please them.

With the completion of the Brotherhood series, his newest book, due out in early winter, weaves a story from one of the characters of his best-selling books. Ted Baker, In Terrorist Gold will be identified with the Brotherhood, but in a whole new setting.

What makes readers flock to Perkins? He believes it could be the honesty of his writing, the intrigue and suspense of Tom Clancy: Politics, technology and the capability of wiping out the world one-country at a time. His books are realistic, thrilling and with a sense of urgency: Stop This From Happening! For more information go to Danperkins.guru

Desiree Carver-Thomas – Research and Policy Associate, Educator Quality Team, Learning Policy Institute.  They discuss the subject of Teacher Turnover and why it matters and what we can do about it. Learning Policy Institute conducted the Teacher Turnover Report, generated from the most recent nationally representative survey of U.S. teachers and Teacher Follow-up Survey, to investigate how turnover trends vary across teachers and schools. According to the report, total turnover rate is lowest in the Northeast where states offer higher pay and support smaller class sizes; the rates are 50% higher for teachers in schools serving large numbers of low-income students and 70% higher for those in schools with the largest concentrations of students of color. The reasons teachers most frequently cite for leaving their jobs are dissatisfaction with testing and accountability pressures (25%), lack of administrative support, and dissatisfaction with working conditions. The report includes recommendations for reducing teacher turnover through improving teachers’ compensation, teacher preparation and support, and teaching conditions.
