Woo! One of our TEDxSarasota Talks is featured on TEDx!!
Mary Esselman’s TEDxSarasota Talk is featured this week on TEDx:
“Denying children access to resources damages both their educational and later life outcomes.”
As schools were desegregated in the 1950s and 1960s, opponents feared that embracing students from low-performing all-black schools would lower standards and unfairly disrupt white students’ performances. In fact, as Rucker Johnson shows with his extensive research, desegregation had essentially no effect on white students, but propelled minority students to unprecedented levels of success. (Filmed at TEDxMiamiUniversity)
Each week, we choose four of our favorite talks, highlighting just a few of the enlightening speakers from the TEDx community, and its diverse constellation of ideas worth spreading. Browse all TEDxTalks here »
Sarasota area in Top 10 of places to move to | HeraldTribune.com -
Sarasota ranks No. 10 in the nation among U.S. moving destinations, according to a just-released report by moving company Penske Truck Rental.
Each of the other nine metropolitan statistical areas sited in the Penske study’s Top 10 are centered around major cities, such as Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Seattle and Charlotte, N.C.
Penske, a global transportation services provider, said the list is compiled by analyzing online consumer truck rental reservations and inquiries to Penske Truck Rental call centers. Only 2012 one-way moves were considered.
