Not only did Casap escape Hell's Kitchen, he has gone on to become Google's Global Education Evangelist, where he has been a consummate advocate for leveling the playing field in communities through an education that leverages digital technologies. It is no small task to set someone on a different path that comes from this kind of background. It takes a spirit of connection between students, faculty' and teachers, and a shift in attitude to help other students overcome their ZIP codes. However, as changes begin in the schools, 'the entire community benefits from the transformation. Gone are the days that schools are simply a place to go and receive content that prepares a student for life. "If school officials want to be relevant in a world that has rapidly mindshare these students devote to basic needs, safety and security. Strategies that focus on their social and emotional literacy as well as resilience help such children persevere and emerge from such conditions with a brighter future: • Working to re-engage social capital with teachers, parents and the community at large. The resource~ needed for transformativelearningexperiences for students are often found sitting on the sidelines in communities because of falling trust in the effectiveness of the school's current strategies. Schools must become intentional about engaging their community and giving them clear insight into how they are going to ensure students are succeeding. Understanding the direct connection between engaging learning experiences and the student having a hopeful view of the future.

"I have heard from countless mining families worried about losing these crucial benefits. These miners worked their whole lives to make our country truly great, and they deserve these hard-earned benefits. They aren't asking for a handout or a bailout, just what they were promised. Their voices have been heard loud and clear, and we are keeping the promise."

Closed Students of the Month Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) secured a permanent solution for retired miners healthcare benefits in the 2017 fiscal year spending bill, which Congress will vote on this week. This provision requires that the federal government and coal operators honor their obligation of healthcare benefits to retired miners and their families who are facing uncertainty as a result of the financial crisis and corporate bankruptcies. "For years I have been working side-by-side with the United Mine Workers of America and West Virginia coal miners to keep the promise we made that these patriotic workers would never go without the healthcare they earned," Senator Manchin said. "Today, I am thrilled to announce that Congress finally agreed to pass a permanent healthcare solution in honor of their hard work and dedication to this great nation." "Over seventy years ago, President Harry Truman brokered the historic Krug-Lewis agreement that guaranteed health and pension benefits for coal miners who put their lives at risk every day to meet our country's energy needs. President Truman recognized the vital role our coal miners played in our country's success and he believed their hard work earned them guaranteed health and pension benefits. This agreement has always been a sacred bond between worker and country, and I am more determined than ever to fulfill our whole obligation and secure retired miners pension benefits as well." For years Senator Manchin In 2009, New York State tested 24 randomly-chosen samples of flowback from horizontal hydrofracturing (fracking) sites in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

But instead of passing the Miners Protection Act, the Senate waited until the last minute to pass a 4-month extension. On March 1, 2017, 22,600 miners received letters letting them know that their healthcare benefits will be terminated at the end of April. Then. 22,600 of our nation's coal miners and their families were set to lose their health care. Congress went over the deadline and passed a one-week extension in order to come up with an agreement to pass a long-term healthcare solution. / In 2011, 750 frack additives were reported to Congress. But when research implied that quinolines are precursors of 4NQO, these and other frack chemicals were promptly hidden under patents. Of the 23 toxic frack additives still listed, twelve are not monitored in drinking water supplies. Meanwhile, the radioactivity Regulatory-Commission level for industrial wastes and 600 times the "safe" limit for drinking water. Radium 226, the main culprit, accumulates in our bodies causing bone and other cancers. It is active for 1,600 years. Yet in 2015, Federal Judge Copenhaver, with ties to oil and gas, refused to hear evidence and ruled against a Fayette County ban on industrial waste dumping. He thus nullified WV Code, section 7-1-3kk statewide! That code had allowed counties to protect themselves against hazards. Frack waste's toxicity warrants HAZMET protection, but state and federal loopholes require that it may neither be handled nor labeled as hazardous. Further) the ingredients are trade secrets. 'Because of these loopholes workers, responders, well owners, corttamination victims and ev~en DEPinspectors are at risk. ~In this outlan~lish scenario, the WVDEP h~§' frequently failed to" notify public water providers of a spill just upstream of their intake!
