Of

Philosophies, Theories

and Universal Education (Pre-Kindergarten) and Traditional Education

Integration of “Original Education” which include African Culture, Diversity and Development in Early Childhood Education including Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade;

We should all have an understanding as educators, practitioners and professors of the importance of early childhood education as the foundation for primary, secondary, middle, high school and higher education as a non-biased international and global system available to all social classes and ethnic groups.

Inclusion of the African American child within the functionalities of our current educational system is the ultimate goal and mission of Universal Education.

The unique pillars of Universal Education (Free Universal Pre-Kindergarten) are sustained failures of the No Child Left Behind Act 2002 which includes a demand for equity of opportunity, structure and organization on all levels of government, federal and state participation and compliance.

This act (P.L. 89-10; 79 Stat. 27) was signed into law on April 11, 1965. It is the largest federal aid to K-12 schooling. When people speak of the No Child Left Behind Act, they are speaking of the 2002 revision of this 1965 law.

Who’s Dying for Fast Fashion? Fighting for the Rights of Garment Workers Worldwide

http://consciouslivingtv.com/spirit-health/whos-dying-for-fast-fashion-fighting-for-the-rights-of-garment-workers-worldwide.html

1133 garment workers were killed and over 2500 injured when the Rana Plaza sweatshop factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh collapsed on April 24th, 2013.

Bangladesh fast fashion

In December of 2010 a fire at That’s It Sportswear, a factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh which supplied a number of U.S. companies including Gap, PVH and JCPenney killed 29 workers who were trapped inside due to locked exits, the ILRF, the Clean Clothes Campaign, Maquila Solidarity Network, Worker Rights Consortium, and a group of global unions and Bangladeshi unions started negotiating with companies for a factory safety agreement with the aim of curbing the future death toll in the Bangladesh garment industry.

Bangladesh TC

Bangladesh has dysfunctional politics and a stunted private sector. Yet it has been surprisingly good at improving the lives of its poor.

ILRF calls on all companies sourcing apparel from Bangladesh to sign the Safety Accord and to ensure fair compensation for worker injury or death on the job.

On April 24, 2013, an eight-story building that housed five garment factories collapsed, in the deadliest disaster in the history of the global garment industry. At least 1,138 workers were killed and 2,500 others were injured in the Rana Plaza collapse. Many of the injured workers were trapped in the building for days. Some had their limbs amputated on-site to free them from the rubble. In the aftermath of the building collapse, ILRF coordinated closely with Bangladeshi labor groups, the Clean Clothes Campaign, United Students Against Sweatshops, and many other organizations in calling on Rana Plaza buyers to pay full and fair compensation to the injured workers and families of the deceased. Our collective campaign efforts were successful in securing $30 million in compensation for the victims in June 2015.

We continue to urge all apparel brands and retailers that source from Bangladesh to sign onto the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh, which now over 200 companies have joined, in order to make factories safer. We are also calling on the companies whose clothes were made at Tazreen Fashions, where at least 112 workers were killed in the November 2012 fire, and at Aswad Composite Mills, where 7 workers died in an October 2013 fire, to compensate the survivors and families of the victims.

The Clean Clothes Campaign

We believe that all garment workers should be paid a wage they can live on; because having a job should mean being able to support yourself and your family.

Workers in Bangladesh campaigning for better working conditions

Most of the world’s garments are made in Asia, and yet while the clothing industry continues to make millions in profits for the big brands the workers, predominantly women, producing the clothes across Asia are being paid the least.

Workers, trade unions, campaigners and consumers are coming together to call for a living wage for all workers.

We are calling for all workers throughout the supply chain to be paid a living wage.

What is a living wage?

A living wage, means that the wage a worker earns in a standard working week (never exceeding 48 hours) is enough to provide for them and their family’s basic needs – including housing, education and healthcare as well as some discretionary income for when the unexpected happens.

The Asia Floor Wage has calculated what a living wage should be for workers across the region. These calculations show the difference between the minimum wage in many countries and a living wage.

Why the minimum wage is not enough

In a situation that is repeated across the region, the recently negotiated minimum wage in Cambodia (100 USD) continues to fall far short of the calculated living wage.

In the Cambodian garment industry, over 80% of workers are women, aged 18-35. Many of these have children and families to provide for. With escalating living costs in housing, food, clothing, education, transport and healthcare, the minimum wage simply isn’t enough. In fact, the Asia Floor Wage Alliance calculate that a living wage in Cambodia is 283 USD / month.

Globally recognised as a basic right

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has defined a living wage as a basic human right under their conventions and recommendations to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 23. (ILO Conventions 95 and 131, ILO Recommendations 131 and 135).

Wages and benefits paid for a standard working should meet at least legal or industry minimum wage standards and always be sufficient to meet basic needs of workers and their families and to provide discretionary income.

Colorado’s Fast Fashion Pioneers

Tim Gunn, Elizabeth Blume and Mondo at the 4th annual Goodwill event.

Goodwill Industries of Denver’s annual fashion show and swap attracts 1,000 people and is always a sell-out. Expect the tickets to go even faster this year, as the organization on Friday announced it is bringing fashion guru Tim Gunn to join designer Mondo Guerra as host for the fourth annual fundraiser on Feb. 6 at the Exdo Event Center. Gunn, who recently won an Emmy for his role as mentor and host on Lifetime’s popular “Project Runway” fashion competition show, was a fan of Guerra’s from the time the Denver designer first appeared on “Project Runway” in 2010. Guerra was the second-place winner that season, and later won the first “Project Runway All-Stars” competition.

FROM A CONVERSATION WITH LIVIA FIRTH…

In reality, this evil machine is exploiting everyone and everything: the consumer, the planet’s resources and the people who produce them. Each year across the world, 1.5 billion garments are sewn by an estimated 40 million people, working in 250,000 factories. These are predominantly made in countries described by the UN as the world’s least developed. All in all, the garment and textile industry is estimated to be worth some $3 trillion. And the bulk of that goes into the pockets of the owners of those fast fashion brands.

It’s a complicated mess we are in…
