USCIS: DHS Outlines Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Process

positivelypersistentteach:

allisonunsupervised:

Some further detail to pass along to those who need it. It appears applications/final instructions will not be available until August 15. 

Work permits will cost $465.

$465 is ridiculous. 

Edit:  

$465 means that it can be said that the cost of processing millions of applications (including hiring the workers to do it) will mostly be shouldered by the immigrants themselves. Politically necessary. Little about the immigration process is free. - Allisonunsupervised
I just am thinking of the families I work with and how difficult it would be to come up with that.

Yesterday, Robin Hood staff took some time away from the office for a volunteer event with one of our grantees, City Harvest. When City Harvest receives shipments from local farmers, they come in massive bins containing one to two thousand pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. In order to distribute these to local food banks and soup kitchens, the food must be put into smaller portions. That’s where volunteers play a crucial role at City Harvest. Nearly every day groups of volunteers come to their new facility, located in Long Island City, to lend a helping hand. Yesterday, Robin Hood staff sorted and bagged 27,000 pounds of sweet potatoes. It was a fun way to see one of our grantees up close and personal. And it was a great way to “Be Robin Hood.” To learn more about ways you can take action, please visit our website.

Revolutionize Education: Flipped classroom - fad or future?

opebukola:

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

The great folks at Edutopia posted this question on Facebook yesterday: Is the flipped classroom model an educational fad or the future of classroom learning?

I enjoyed…
