Correctional employees: We need new leadership


*4- ---. .---. *':. *


Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.com

Miami-Dade County Corrections and
Rehabilitation employees are furious
and tired with the leadership at Miami-
Dade Corrections.
"The morale is very low in the
department. The discipline and
punishment of the staff far outweigh
the crime. None of the employees


are being trained in their positions,"
said Corey J. Barney, President of the
Organization of Minority Correctional
Officers.
Ryan has allegedly been accused of
threatening employees that they would
loose their jobs, favoritism towards
Hispanics and Whites, minimum
wages to senior management, staffing
shortages, excessive discipline and
unequal treatment, and unnecessary


terminations.
Earlier this year, after an employee
did a presentation of poetry during
Black History Month, Director Ryan
was accused of 'making insensitive
remarks and displayed a lack of respect
for African-American history.' Recently,
Ruby Gaines and Sheldon Fancher
were fired from the department for
what seems to be no apparent reason

Legislature approves FCAT overhaul


Test will be later in school year
TALLAHASSEE Many Florida public
school students are rejoicing about a major
revolution soon to come in the classroom.
The dreaded FCAT could be moved to
later in the year to give children more time
to learn the subjects they are tested on.
And the exam's emphasis would be


downgraded when it comes to
calculating the grades given
to the state's high schools,
accounting in the future for 19
only 50 percent of their A to
F rating, with the remainder
based on the graduation rate
and other scholastic measures.
That's the upshot of the first major revamp


Iof public education in nearly
a decade approved Friday by
the Florida Legislature, which
also decided that the state
must be more specific in what
children are expected to learn
at each grade level.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


- I


Obama Wright schism
Black people all over the country were caught up
between a rock and a hard place after the political
shenanigans of the past week in the effort to elect Sen.
Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for president.
Many thought the Reverend Jeremiah Wright might have
thrown Obama under the bus when he used the forum of
the National Press Club in Washington to defend the Black
Church from criticism of his fiery sermons.
We cannot deny that much of what Wright said was the
truth about the struggle of Blacks in this country, but, citing
the bible Book of Ecclesiastes, "there is a time to keep silent
and a time to speak."
Reverend Wright did not realize it, but he played his way right
into the hands of a hostile media that will consider a Black
man as president, but it does not want a Black president.
Racism is alive and well in this country and the campaign
being waged today in North Carolina and Indiana will remind
you of that fact by checking out print and broadcast news.
Obama severed his ties to Wright at a news conference last
Tuesday decrying his longtime minister's latest remarks as
"a bunch of rants that aren't grounded in the truth."
In March, in a speech on race, prompted by controversy
over Wright's past sermons, Obama said he disagreed with
some of the pastor's views but could not disown the man who
performed his marriage and baptized his children.
His feelings changed after he viewed tapes of, Wright
speaking Monday at the National Press Club where he
defended Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Wright
also suggested that U.S. actions abroad promoted terrorism,
and that the government was capable of creating the AIDS
virus to kill Blacks.
Reverend Wright is a theologian and a very popular pastor
who has done a lot of good work in his city and throughout
the country. We need more pastors like him to remind the
world to be fair to all people.
In this complexworld in which we live we need Barack Obama
and Reverend Jeremiah Wright. And we need to remember
our biblical teachings in the Book of Ecclesiastes.
This editorial is being re-printed from last week's edition due
to a computer error.

4bo4wb- AIM 4-04"


* Hankerson turns away from the booster club


Dear Editor,


I am writing this letter in
reference to Northwestern's
principal, Charles
Hankerson's, decision to
discontinue the relationship
with the Bulls Booster
Club. I believe his decision
is appalling and will prove
to be detrimental to the
athletic programs at Miami
Northwestern.
This parent/alumni based
organization has served Miami
Northwestern for over 13
years and worked closely with
four administrations without
any mishaps. His justification


of budget cuts is weak and a
poor option to use to disband
this organization. His decision
seems like a hostile take-over
and now leaves our community
involvement at an all time low.
During the past 13 years, this
group has helped to:
Purchase four state
championship rings: football,
'95, '98, current '07 & girls'
track 2002 Provided student
athlete meals after football
games
Paid insurance for young
people who couldn't afford it
Paid for special training
camps
Purchased coaches'


uniforms and special needs
for the football program, per
coaches requests
Sponsored 18 football players
to participate in the football
game in Dallas, Texas
This organization brought
the concessions from a
cheap hot dog stand to the
best concessions in Dade
County athletic history.
His advisors have deluded
him into believing that this
organization will be easy to
replace. This organization has
helped to raise over $20,000
dollars to send the band to
Texas- without ever receiving
an official thank you from the


athletic program. He is sadly
mistaken. Tradition is what
everyone in this town admires
most about the Northwestern
family and it feels as of he is
trying to break our spirit! We
do not want to be taken for
granted.
In closing, I feel that if
he had taken the approach
of inclusion, rather than
exclusion, he would have the
potential to build even greater
capital with the Northwestern
family!

Larry T. Williams, President
Miami Northwestern Alumni
Association

3A THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 14-20, 2008


BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


I hr is a tran and mierd up wswWd


Councilman pushes gun control


Councilman Andre Williams
of the City of Miami Gardens
is taking a step that neither
Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama
will even discuss before the
Pennsylvania primary. He is
advocating reenactment of the
ban on assault weapons. Based
on studies that he has reviewed,
the number of violent crimes
committed with assault weapons
has increased since the ban on
assault weapons has been lifted.
He also seeks to pass a resolution
applauding Wal-Mart which is
of its own accord tightening its
sales requirements for firearms.
As a municipality, the City of
Miami Gardens cannot pass
leglislation restricting gun sales,
but Councilman Williams hopes
that after the passage of the
resolution that state and federal
legislators will take up his cause.
As Councilman Williams stated
the issue of assault weapons
is not a City of Miami Gardens
issue, but a national issue. To
my knowledge, the City of Miami
Gardens will be leading the way
on this issue as it will be one
of the first municipalities to pass
such a resolution.

IS COSBY CORRECT IN HIS
ASSERTION THAT BLACKS
NEED TO SPEAK
ENGLISHCORRECTLY
Comedian, actor and now
social commentator Bill Cosby
has been making points with right
wing pundits for his criticism of
African Americans. In a recent
speech, he stated "they're
standing on the corner and they
can't speak English ... And I
blamed the kid untilI- heard the
mother talk. .. Everyone knows
it is important to speak English
except these knuckleheads.
You can't be a doctor with that
kind of crap coming out of your
mouth. In fact, you will never get
any kind of job making a decent
living. People marched and
were hit in the face with rocks to
get an education, and now we've
got these knuckleheads walking
around."
His statement hit me at a
visceral level. On one level black
speech has a soul and richness to
it that led to so many wonderful


colloquialism. In
fact, I feel that
most modern
slang, like most
fashion is derived
from our young
people inventing and recreating
the English language.
On the other hand, I remember
the smacks and looks that I
received from my parents when
I crossed the threshold of our
home and thought that my
street talk was appropriate at
the dinner table.
I think in many ways, Bill
Cosby is right, because parents
who were not taught to speak the
Queen's English cannot correct
or will not try to correct the
mangled ebonics coming out of
their children. In the past, black
children were bilingual they
spoke street and correct English.
Now, our children cannot clean
up their act, because they simply
do not know how.
Bill Cosby ranted that "these
people are not parenting. They
are buying things(for kids. $500
sneakers for what? And they
won't spend $200 for Hooked
on Phonics." I guess that sort
of sums up the problem. As my
grandfather stated, "black people
are too concerned with the hat
on their head and not what is
inside their head."
In our present culture, you do
not hear children stating that
they want to become doctors,
lawyers or engineers but rather
they dream of becoming rap
stars, basketball players and
football players. Our rap stars
and athletes do not have to
speak well to make millions.
They seem to have it all the big
house, the pretty woman and
the nice cars. No one tells our
young people that the lifestyle is
fleeting. Luther Campbell, the
great Miami rapper, was recently
in the paper because he has not
been paying child support. I
know several former Dolphins
who are cutting grass for a
living. Ultimately, the good life
does not last if you do not have
the education to invest your
earnings in that small window of
time that you are making the big
money.

Miami-Dade Public School officials are revisiting the idea of
closing 11 schools with a large number of empty classrooms.
With the massive funding cuts by the legislature squeezing
our budget, superintendent Rudy Crew should not have a
hard time convincing the board to take the action.

Miami Mayor Manny Diaz is getting plenty flak along with
Commissioner Michele Spence-Jones since a three-judge
panel struck down the controversial condo development for
Coconut Grove. The Related Group developers and the city
Commission found out that they were no match for stalwarts
in this community like Mercy Hospital and the Viscaya
Museum.

People are saying that most Black Republicans feel that
President Bush has screwed the country so bad that it is
embarrassing to ask others for support. But, still they try.
The latest fiasco is that of The Black Republican Association's
magazine based in Sarasota attempt to attract voters, Black
Republicans Association Chairwoman Frances Rice said her
group is aggressive about its viewpoint to "wake up and shed
the light of truth on the racist past and failed socialism of
the Democratic Party." Even the white GOP members were
* blushing at her charge the "Democrats wage war on God."

A lot of folk are curious as to why Florida Congressman
Kendrick Meek and Alcee Hastings are taking so long to
switch their superdelegate votes from Sen. Hillary Clinton
to Sen. Barack Obama.

High School seniors are looking forward to major changes
in the way Florida schools are graded. High schools would
be graded on how many students graduate and how many
take college prep courses in addition to how students fare
on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test or FCAT.

The situation in Haiti seems to go from bad to worse. Haiti's
efforts to install a new leader, following last month's firing
of the Caribbean nation's prime minister, suffered a serious
setback Monday after lawmakers rejected President Ren6
Pr6val's choice for the job.

Courthouse wags are saying that the plea deal copped by
crooked developer Oscar Rivero is just the beginning of a
long list of people who took advantage of greedy city and
county officials who are plain dishonest. Rivero admitted
stealing $710,000 from Miami-Dade affordable housing
loans to buy an expensive home for himself. Stay tuned.

People are talking about the Rev. Daniel Mundell, the
Hallandale preacher who tells his followers God will free them
of debt and make them millionaires. He operated 10 years
ago as Solid Rock Family Worship Center in Fort Lauderdale
and made millions. Mundell is now back in South Florida,
preaching at Good Shepherd Ministries in a strip mall in
Hallandale Beach and rebuilding his ministry after filing for
bankruptcy protection a second time last June.

Students score high on F(


SCORES
continued from 1A

at the competency level by 11
points over last year.A
The writing test consists of
two parts: a timed essay and
a multiple-choice section that
tests students' knowledge of
grammar, punctuation and
organization. Students need a
3.5 on a scale of 1 to 6 on the
essay to pass. High scores can
earn schools some extra money
and create a high esteem for the
school's status.
Last year, 41 percent of 10th-


graders in Miami-Dade passed
the test on the combined parts.
This year, 47 percent in Miami-
Dade passed both test.
The investment of parents
and teachers in making sure
that the students were prepared
for the exam was highly
appreciated. "These results are
evidence that the tremendous
efforts of our teachers have a
direct and positive impact on
our children's futures," said
Education Commissioner Eric
J. Smith. "It is through their
selfless commitment to student
success that our state has


CAT writing
been able to experience the
phenomenal academic growth
that we have seen in the last
decade."
Parents will be able to view
their students' scores via the
FCAT Parent Network (www.
fcatparentnetwork.com) using
the secure login and password
provided by. their school
beginning at 6 a.m. on Tuesday,
May 13. During the next few
weeks, the scores for the math,
reading, and science portion
of the FCAT will be released
but the school grades will be
released in July.


Legislature approves FCAT overhaul


FCAT
continued from 1A
commissioner, has promoted
a de-emphasis of the FCAT in
school grades, but he has not
yet indicated whether he will
sign the package of education
bills into law.
Educators across the state
hailed the changes approved by
the Legislature.
Almost everyone agree that
FCAT is a very narrow measure
of the broad range of work high
schools are expected to do, and


its a good idea to change the
basis for grading high schools.
The FCAT is now administered
in February and March, but
the bill gives state Education
Commissioner Eric Smith the
authority to schedule it for the
"latest possible" date in the
school year. It also attempts
to dampen some of the "FCAT
frenzy" surrounding the test,
instructing schools that they
can no longer conduct rallies
to boost student enthusiasm
during classroom time.
At present, schools in many


parts of the state resort to
motivational speakers, contests
and rallies to boost children's
enthusiasm and, hopefully, test
results, since schools have a
stake in how well their students
perform.

Florida rates 12th on Nations Rate Card Murray still working in fight against cancer


No ChildLeft Behind requires allstudents to be proficient
in math and reading by 2014, but lets each state set its
own standards for measuring annual progress


Florida rated a C-plus for
difficulty on reading and math
tests used to meet requirements
of the federal No Child Left
Behind Act last year, a study
released Monday showed.
Florida's score was good
enough for a 12th-place tie in
the national study by Stanford
University's Hoover Institution,
a well-funded conservative
think tank. The report rated
proficiency standards for
fourth- and eighth-grade tests
for what the federal government
calls the Nation's Report Card,
which compares achievement
levels among states.
No Child Left Behind requires
all students to be proficient
in math and reading by 2014,
but lets each state set its own
standards for measuring annual


progress. State education
officials had no immediate
comment on the study.
Last year, only a third of
Florida's schools made adequate
yearly progress under the
federal law, while many states
with lower standards did much
better. Georgia, for example,
was one of .three states that
received the lowest grade, an F,
for its proficiency standards. Yet
82 percent of Georgia schools
made adequate yearly progress
last year more than twice
Florida's percentage.
Those kind of differences
have drawn complaints from
Florida officials that the federal
assessment system penalizes
states with higher standards.
The study said the wide variation
among the standards "seems


little short of bizarre," but
federal officials have resisted
setting national standards.
U.S. Education Secretary
Margaret Spellings said in
January that states should
continue setting their own
standards because they pay for
most education expenses.
The study gave an A to only
three states South Carolina,
Massachusetts and Missouri -
because they are the only ones
that had world class proficiency
standards. Florida tied for 12th
place with New Mexico, Rhode
Island, Arkansas and New
York.
The study also credits
Florida with making a small
improvement in its proficiency
standards for the fourth and
eighth grades since 2003. That
improvement was still better
than most of the 40 states
that had standards in 2003,
including 16 that reduced the
difficulty of their tests.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


6A THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 14-20, 2008


New leadership comes at a high cost


LEADERSHIP
continued from 1A

but the fact they that they were
Black.
At the March NAACP meeting,
in which Mayor Carlos Alvarez
and County Manager George
attended, Barney and other
employees confronted Ryan and
brought light to the apparent
allegations to county officials.
"Since the NAACP meeting,
nothing has changed except
things have gotten worse.
Rumors are that he has applied
for another job in California,"
said Barney.
Walter Clarke, President and
CEO of Special Consultant for
African-American Government
Employees, has criticized
Miami-Dade Commissioners
Barbara Jordan, Dorrin D.
Rolle, Audrey Edmonson and
Dennis D. Moss as being by
'suspicious silence' of the
ongoing problems occurring at
Miami-Dade Corrections.

THE 'EVIL EMPIRE'
IS STILL HERE
In an article in the Police
Benevolent Association (PBA),
Director Ryan was defined as
the 'Evil Empire.'
Ryan is a twenty-year veteran
of Corrections and from
Oakland, California. He became
Deputy Sheriff for the Alameda
County Sheriffs Office in 1970.
Ryan took on the position as
Director of Miami-Dade County
Corrections and Rehabilitation
in 2006, supervising the 6th
largest jail system in America.
"The number one agenda
of Tim Ryan when he arrived
was to change the way Black
people look. You can't wear
braids ot dreads. He placed so
much' emphasis on the uniform
policy. He's only been here for
fourteen months and he has
accomplished nothing relevant
to his director duties," said
Barney.
"He is a racist. Call him what
he is. I don't know why this man
is still here. We have to continue
to fight. The only reason the
correctional employees get their
stuff taken care of is because
we fight for it," said Clarke.

DEPUTY DIRECTOR
MUST ALSO GO
After the infamous and
embarrassing escape, of
Reynaldo Rapalo in 2005,
Mayor Alvarez called for the
Miami-Dade Police Department
to conduct a full investigation
into the department. Three-
thousand pages of document
*detailed the general problems
within the department that
would result with demotions,
terminations, and suspensions
of staff within various levels.
Yet, recommendations for
demotion of Deputy Director
Marydell Guevara and Chief
Marcus, Smith never happened
and it raised questions to
other employers. Both were
supposedly employed as 'acting
positions' while the county


manager sought for a new
director. Guevara and Smith
were allegedly demoted from
'acting positions' back into their
permanent positions and their
salaries were never changed
and they continued to collect


the proper medical treatment.
"We were treated like dogs.
We are not animals, and some
of us should not be in there to
begin with," said Tarpley. He is
currently seeking an attorney
to represent him for this unjust


Tanya Latson, a victim of Miami-dade Correctional em-


ployees.

merit increases. According to
Barney, you cannot be demoted
from a position that you did not
hold permanently and county
employees are demoted from
permanent positions not 'acting
positions.'

INMATES ARE FEELING THE
WRATH OF THE GUARDS
According to Miami-Dade
County Corrections and
Rehabilitation Department,
their mission is to 'serve the
community by providing safe,
secure and humane detention
of individuals in their custody
while prepanng them for
a successful return to the
community.'
"I have worked in corrections
for avery long time and I learned
that there are three things you
don't mess with is an inmate's
food, visitation, and recreation.
We have had to cutback on
inmates meals," said Barney.
John Tarpley was arrested
in March for soliciting
merchandise on the street
corner and was sent to the
Miami-Dade Corrections.
Tarpley, who suffers from
seizure, was denied any
treatment or medication from
the correctional guards. While
in jail, Tarpley got into an
altercation with another inmate
which resulted into a huge
fight. There are allegations that
the officers did not immediately
break-up the fight because they
feared their safety. The fight
led to Tarpley falling back and
busting his head. Upon release
from jail, he was able to receive


crime.
Tanya Latson did not expect
the same mistreatment from
the Miami-Dade Corrections.
Latson was arrested for a
bench warrant in early April
and was also sent to jail. Due
to a car accident, Latson has
had problems with her back.
With no medical insurance, she
is unable to receive the proper
treatment. With a bad back,
it was difficult for Latson to
stand and she tried to convey
the information to the guards,
but she was beaten, taunted,
and laughed at. Her eyes were
sprayed v. ith mase so she would
not'.be. able to see the officer
badges.
"I had to tell them that I was
pregnant in order for them to
stop beating me. They called
me so many names. After they
beat me, they refused to let me
see a doctor. I can't even open
my eyes all the way. I cannot
believe this happened to me,"
said Latson.
"Sadly, more inmates have
died since Ryan has become
Director," said Barney.

READY FOR A CHANGE
"We need someone who
knows how to deal with people
not handle people because
animals are handled. Someone
who won't be conformed to the
politics of Miami and know
how to deal with various ethnic
groups. Someone who will meet
and discuss with you whatever
problems or issues you might
have. Director Ryan is always
out of town so no one ever gets


Are your Property Taxes Paid?

Your property is one of your most valuable assets and the Miami-Dade County Tax Collector's Office wants to help you
understand the consequences of not paying your properly taxes
Please realize the failure to pay your property taxes will result in a lien being placed on your property and additional charges
and interest will be applied to your tax bill
Property taxes became delinquent on April 1st
If your taxes remain unpaid on June 1st, your taxes will be sold at auction as a tax. certificate and a
lien will be recorded on your property
When a certificate is sold on your property, the buyer of the certificate pays the taxes you owe and
earns interest, which you will have to pay in addition to the taxes you owe
If your taxes remain unpaid for a period of two years after a certificate has been issued on your
property, you could lose your property.
Please remember, if you are the current property owner, it is your responsibility to ensure your property taxes are paid
To avoid additional charges and interest, and the potential risk of losing your property, the Miami-Dade County Tax Collector's
Office wants to remind you that your payment must be in our office by May 31, 2008 Mailed payments must be by cashier's
check or money order.
You may also pay in person at one of the following locations


Miami-Dade Flagler Building
140 West Flagler Street Room If I
Miami, Florida 33130


South Dade Government Center
u10710 SW 2111t, Streetc Room 104

to see him. He is gone more
times than he is here. He talks
to his staff by video. What kind
of leader is that," said Barney.
"I don't know any of the
employees who are satisfied in
the things that are going on,"
said Clarke.
A spokesperson for the Miami-
Dade Corrections deferred
to comment at this time. For
surprisingly, Director Rygn was
out of town.
Florida state budget 'will
spend more than $300 million
on new prison construction and
hire nearly 1,000 additional
prison guards. Will that solve
the problem of Miami-Dade
Corrections?
Organization of Minority
Correctional Officers (OMCO)
Progressive Correctional
Officers Association (PCOA),
and Special Consultant for
African-American Government
Employees held a meeting at
the Joseph Caleb Center on
Wednesday, May 7 at 6 p.m.
to discuss the 'Vote of No
Confidence' of Ryan and Deputy
Director Marydell Guevara.
Correctional employees came
out to discuss their issues and
what should be the end result
of this situation.
"This is the only way that the
department can move forward-
-Ryan must go. We believe that
the director and the deputy
director can no longer manage
the Department of Corrections
so we are asking Alvarez to
put the department under
management watch which
means that the managers will
take over the management
in crisis until the mayor can
appoint an interim director.
If we are going to make these
allegations then we have to
walk right too," said Barney.
Severalcorrectionalemployees
along with the NAACP will meet
with Mayor Alvarez and County
Manager George Burgess on
Wednesday, May 14, in hopes
of bringing a solution to this
overdrawn problem.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


2C THE MIAMI TIMES. MAY 14-20. 2008


When Carey Hart, Brandii
Edwards and Carolyn
Johnson appeared on stage
for the opening of From The
Mississippi Delta, their unison
narrative placed the crowded
theater in New York, Chicago,
Philadelphia, or Atlanta, last
Friday, at The M Ensemble
Company with Patricia E.
Williams, general manager and
Shirley Richardson, executive
director.
Hart, the daughter of C. Brian
Hart, insurance executive,
along with the other
characters intoxicated
the audience with
their in-and-out-
of-characters from
the beginning until
the closure. In other
words, these talented
ladies switched from
little girls to bar BUL
maids, grownups to
inebriators, protesters,
nurses, ministers and rape
victims.
It was captivating to observe
a new character in a spilt-
second and a return to another
character when playing the
part of a female, switching to a
male and satisfying the puzzle
by using a hat for the the male;
nurses' cap for a nurse and
a scarf with a cross for the
minister or the church scene.
At the end of each segment,
the audience gave a standing
ovation and -the actresses
poured it on following each
act. Enjoying it all were the
Arcola Lakes Singing Angels,


Tillie Stibbins,
president, Henry
Williams, b.m.,
Mary Simmons,
directress, Dr.
Lorraine F.
Strachan, Mamie
Horne, Samuel


'Chase' Williams, Willie
'Slim' Jackson, Anton Bell,
Joan Smith, Brenda Hadley,
Daphene Johnson, Ammie
Smith, Georgia Hill, and Dr.
Richard Strachan.
Also, Richard Bedgood, Sr.,
Richard G. Bedgood,
Jr., Barbara Bedgood,
Isel Bedgood, seventh
grader at Driftwood
Middle, and Bernadette
Bedgood, fourth, Coral
Cove Elem. The young
children really enjoyed
themselves.
ARD Now, you can enjoy
LARD yourself by taking in a
weekend, This play is
so well cast and entertaining, it
may go on a few months before
closing. So call 305-895-0335
and take an advantage of the
group rates that are available,
while helping two Black women
provide the community with
exceptional plays.


Hosea Butler, president,
Nelson Jenkins, chairperson,
Dr. Astrid Mack, and James
Maull, scholarship chairman,
orchestrated The King of Clubs

Who Cares



What Black People Think


.....Anyway?


If you think nobody gives a damn what Black people think, think again. Some
people care a lot. Especially when they need something from you.
Take corporations.They want you to buy their products. And banks care
whether you're going to give them your money. Politicians.They care what you
think when they're looking for your vote. And TV and radio stations hope you
will pay attention to their shows.
The point is, all these people want something from you. And when people
want something from you,you have got power over them.We should learn to
use that power wisely to make the changes we need to make.
Give your money, your votes and your loyalty to people who-deserve it.
People who are going to give you something in return. People who are doing
the most for the Black community.
Who cares what Black people think? A lot of people do.
The Miami Times is about the business of communication. Communicating to
you the power you have and letting you know how you can use it. For instance,
right now there are 32 million Black people in this country and last year we
earned more than 400 billion dollars.


That's clout.


Think about it

potential vendors, service providers, bidders, lobbyists, or consultants and the County's professional staff, including but not limited to the County Manager and the County Manager's staff. A Cone of Silence is
also imposed between the Mayor, County Commissioners or their respective staffs and any member of the County's professional staff including, but not limited to, the County Manager and the County Manager's
staff.

tual Ordinance for further clarification.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


10D THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 14-20, 2008


Young

Sandra J. Charite
scharite@miamitimesonline.com

Graduation is soon
approaching. Many high school
seniors will take their diploma
and embark on a new adventure
called college while many
college students will enter a
new world called the workforce.
Unfortunately, many young
people are entering the workforce
lacking the fundamental skills
needed to succeed in this
society.
It used to be that a high
school diploma could get you a
steady job if you decided not to
pursue higher education, but
it is important for you to know
that most jobs today call for
more than just a high school
diploma. "Personally, I took on a
job that required a professional
background right out of high
school, however it was too much
for me. I did have the skills but
as the stress grew, my patience
got shorter. Not being prepared
for 'Corporate America', I quit!
I went back to school, which
most teens do after experiencing
the 'real world' for something I
love doing and I am certain of
my skills," said Dionne Haslam,*
24-year-old Miami resident.
Even for those who graduate
from college with a degree,
without the proper skills, your
degree is just a paper showing
your attendance of college. "Some
teens come out of high school,
not wanting to go to college.
So they find a job that they are
good at and enjoy, and excel over
time. A high school classmate
of mine got an advertising job
right after graduating, and is
now the vice president! I feel, if
you enjoy what you are doing,
you will excel in your skills for
job security. Some go to college,
get the degree and experience
and still don't have the skills
to actually keep their job," said
Haslam.
In Miami-Dade, the percentage
of students performing at or
above profciency on the reading


people

and math Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) has
increased by three percent since
2001. Nationally, students are
improving in reading and math
but employers are not looking
at FCAT scores. Recently, the
Florida Legislature passed an
education bill that mandates
a revamping of the education
children are receiving in public
schools after realizing that
today's kids may not be learning
in the classrooms, what they
need to know to get a job.
According to the Partnership
for 21st Century skills, more
than 40 percent of surveyed
employers say incoming high
school graduates employed are
unprepared for the entry-level
positions.
"Even academically talented
students need to be develop the
necessary skills that cannot
be taught in textbooks. One
approach I use, when I am
teaching my statistics class,
is I give a group of students a
problem and I have them solve
the problem then they I have
them demonstrate to the class
the method they used to obtain
their answer. In essence, they
have now become the teacher in
the classroom. The kids learn
how to take criticism and also
how to give criticism to their peers
which is a very important skill
that they will most likely apply
in the workforce, when doinri
a presentation or conducting a
meeting," Rene Garciai, Director
of Enrollment Management at
Miami-Dade College.
Employers say that many
yourig people lack skills such
as teamwork, communication,
working with diversity groups,
leadership, and decision-
making. These skills are
not necessarily taught in the
textbooks or on assessment
tests. "I'm riot in the classroom
but, as a college advisor, I work
with students everyday coming
in and out of my office. What I
witness on a day-to-day basis
is that students do not know


not ready for the workforce


how to express themselves and
articulate properly and they lack
confidence. In a tremendously
competitive society, it is of great
importance to be able to have
these skills. Having such skills
will help them during any kind
of college interview as well as job
interview," said Myra A. White,
College Advisor at Miami Carol
City Senior High School.


to make financial investments to
provide the corrective training
for young people who are
entering the workforce without
enough of the skills that the
companies need.
Computer and money
management skills are essential
skills for young people. With
the expansion of technology,
computer skills are necessary


we have become a melting
pot. The knowledge of foreign
languages, cultures, and global
markets are very important for
future graduates entering the
workforce. According to the
Partnership for 21st Century
skills, 63 percent of participants
believed foreign languages to be
more important than any other
basic knowledge area or skill.


Ask questions. Do not assume you know everything
Computer and money management skills are essential skills for young people. With the expansion of tech-
nology, computer skills are necessary for young people to pursue a higher education.


White continues, "Many
students walk into my office
asking me for my help and won't
even speak. They think that I'm
suppose to speak to them first.
Therefore, many of them lack
those important social skills. I
try to emphasis to the students
that they can have a great GPA
but they also need to be able to
know how to communicate and
apply their social skills in order
to succeed."
More American employers
are looking to the future
disappointed that they will need


for young people to pursue a
higher education. It's more than
just knowing about MySpace or
checking their emails but more
jobs are in need of "computer
savvy" individuals who are
familiar with programs like
Power Point presentations,
Quickbooks, or Microsoft Excel.
Also, it would be beneficial
for individuals to have money
management skills in which they
are able to manage accounts
when they are making budget,
savings, or invest decisions.
Especially in South Florida,


"I cannot overemphasize the
importance of students utilizing
the services available through
their Departments of Career
Services. These offices offer a
wealth of real-world information,
resources and strategies to
ensure that students have the
information and capabilities
needed to be competitive in the
marketplace. Our students have
access to the information and
resources necessary to ensure
that they are prepared. ," said
H. Leigh Toney, Miami Dade
College's Executive Director


of the Meek Entrepreneurial
Education Center.
Toney offers advice to the
many young people who soon
will be entering this growing
workforce:
Never miss an opportunity
to learn new things because
it enhances your professional
and interpersonal skills which
ultimately makes you a better
job candidate
Ask questions. Do not assume
you know everything.
Find a mentor, someone with
a successful track record at the
organization, as well as someone
who is widely respected by all
sectors of the organization.
A mentor is important and
together with your own personal
motivation and talent, can help
direct you to a productive and
successful career.
Find out about co-op and
internship opportunities. They
have been demonstrated to
be effective tools in helping
students transition from school
to the workplace.
Create a resume. You have
only a few seconds to get the
employer's attention. You must
sell yourself to the employer
within 15 seconds of looking at
your resume, or you'll lose the
job. Remember, it's very easy to
make mistakes on your resume
and very difficult to repair the
damage once an employer gets
it. So, prevention is critical.
Attending a job fair so you
can meet with employers from
different companies.
When you get the job: Present
a positive attitude (speak no
evil, see no evil, do no evil!).
Learn the office culture (what
makes it operate effectively).
Get to know your supervisor/
boss and understand his/her
management style. Do your best
always and ask questions when
in doubt. Cultivate a working
relationship with a senior staff
member. Become involved in
the informal social setting, but
never speak negatively about
anyone or anything.
