�Schools of Tomorrow�, Schools of Today: What Happened to Progressive Education (History of Schools and Schooling, V. 8)


�Schools of Tomorrow,� Schools of Today documents some of the child-centered progressive schools founded in the first half of the twentieth century and provides histories of some more contemporary examples of progressive practices. Part I discusses seven progressive schools founded in the first part of the twentieth century (Francis W. Parker; Organic; Park; City and Country; Lincoln; Dalton; Arthurdale), tracing them from their beginnings to the present, or until their regrettable demises. Part II examines four more contemporary schools (Butterfield; Free Union Country; Urban Academy; W. Haywood Burns), showing how progressive practices gained momentum from the 1960s onward. As a volume in the History of Schools and Schooling series, this book seeks to look to the past for what it can teach us today. The lessons from the past about what has happened to progressive education hopefully will inform contemporary debates.

It’s Happened: Kanye West Styled Kim Kardashian for a Sexy Photo Shoot

Even if we all think (know?) that Kanye West is responsible for Kim Kardashian’s style behind the scenes, we’re now getting a legit look at what happens when he takes on the role of stylist in a professional capacity. For a special booklet from System Magazine, shot by esteemed fashion photographer Juergen Teller, West acts as stylist, putting his wife in a skin-color bustier and leotard, plus black thigh-highs.


A photo posted by @quickfixretouch on

With no specifics on how many pages the special edition has, it’s not clear whether we can expect multiple Kim-for-Kanye ensembles or if it’s just this one sultry look. The combo we have seen certainly shares a lot of similarities with the athletic, body-con looks West did for his Adidas collection. It would certainly make sense for Kardashian to model them first (that is, if she hasn’t already…).

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Shorts: 5 Glamour Staffers, 1 Pair of Cutoffs, Here’s What Happened

Finding a flattering pair of denim cutoffs can be frustrating, but the hard work is always worth it in the end. Find a great pair of denim shorts and there’s a high chance you’ll want to live in them straight through Labor Day.

glamour-cutoffs-02

We asked five Glamour staffers to try on a pair of Gap’s highly-rated “1969 destructed slim denim shorts”—and, across the board, for women short and tall, curvy and boyish, the unanimous result was that they worked. Everyone found them comfortable, agreed they were flattering, and got a range of appreciative co-worker comments.

Here’s what we all discerned as key characteristics making these particular jean shorts awesome:

· They are embellishment-free. It’s tempting to want to pick a bold color or trendy accent, but skip the frou-frou to get the most timeless look.

· Skip the cuff. The added thickness of folded fabric can make thighs look larger than they really are. Plus, you can always cuff them yourselves, if you want.

· Look for a mid-thigh (or upper-mid-thigh) length. Any shorter will appear short on most women, while hemlines that approach the knee break the line of the leg in an awkward spot.

When it comes to length, some women wished for shorts a little longer—to be fair, they didn’t always pass the fingertip test. Pro tip: If you’re looking for a longer, looser fit, try the next size up—they’ll be slouchier, plus you can shimmy them down to sit lower on your hips.

So That Happened: Obama’s Cuba Plan Turned Some Folks Into Wind-Up-Toys Of Outrage

So, that happened: This week, President Barack Obama announced that the United States would make an effort to normalize relations with Cuba, ending a decades-long policy of distance that had been surprisingly effective in doing nothing in particular. We’ll talk about the new plan, and the people who are hopping mad about it.

Listen to this week’s “So That Happened” below:

Some highlights from this week:

“Those two, when they got the news, I don’t know. It was like they became weird wind-up-toys of outrage.” — Jason Linkins

Meanwhile, a Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy has been canceled, because North Korea apparently now dictates what movies we watch in our spare time? How did something so simple get so out of hand?

“Films that relate to things in North Korea will not be made now and that is just outrageous. Something has got to give.” — Arthur Delaney

And finally, we’re taking a look back at 2014 — a great year for garbage monsters. What are our least-favorite things about the past year? Well, this is going to take a while.

“2014 has been f*cking terrible and at least in the world of public affairs, there have been almost no redeeming aspects to this terrible year.” — Zach Carter

We’re very happy to let you know that “So, That Happened” is now available on iTunes. We’ve been working to create an eclectic and informative panel show that’s constantly evolving and as in touch with the top stories of the week as it is with important stories that go underreported.

Ben Affleck Jokes ‘Gone Girl’ Full-Frontal Happened On Cold Set

When accepting an award for your latest film, what better way to use the opportunity than to bring up your now-legendary full-frontal scene?

Ron Howard presented the top prize at the Hollywood Film Awards on Friday night, honoring David Fincher’s “Gone Girl.” Ben Affleck accepted the award on behalf of Fincher and the producers and used his moment on stage to comment on his infamous shower scene from the film. Affleck sarcastically thanked Fincher for keeping the set cool during the sequence: “If you’re going to have one chance for America to see your junk, you want it to be cold.”

The actor used the rest of his speech to poke fun at Fincher, saying the director couldn’t be there to accept the award because he was still busy shooting the film. “Just one or two more takes, we’re gonna have it,” Affleck said, mocking Fincher’s reputation of demanding multiple takes. Fincher may have betrayed Affleck’s trust with the temperature conditions on set, but the actor is still hoping 3-D will make up for it.

10 Things You Won’t Believe Happened at Weddings I’ve Planned

I have learned never to say “I’ve seen it all” or to claim there’s nothing left that could surprise me in wedding planning. Just when I think there’s nothing left that could shock me, something whacky happens (like the bride’s father stripping down to his skivvies) and I’m wrong yet again. So I’ve given up claiming that I know everything that can happen at a wedding. I don’t. Even after eight years and almost 500 weddings, things shock and horrify me regularly.

Here are 10 things it’s hard to believe were happening at weddings I’ve planned — but they really did (and I have the PTWD (Post Traumatic Wedding Disorder) to prove it):

1. The grandfather of the bride physically attacking the father of the bride during cocktails just after the happy couple made their grand entrance. OMG – shocking! And Gramps got a good lick in and drew blood, so he had to leave before the wedding reception dinner. Otherwise, he would have been escorted out by security anyway. Always have a plan for when a fight breaks out between guests — but just hope it’s not the family members attacking each other.

2. The groom arriving 30 minutes late for his own wedding ceremony, dressed in shredded cutoffs, and then standing on a rock like the Karate Kid, balanced on one leg, throwing stones into the Caribbean Sea while all the guests watched from a distance thinking he’d lost his mind. Eventually, when I asked what he was doing, he replied “getting rid of the bad energy.” Um buddy, you’re making the bride sit in a car waiting for you to put your pants on. That’s called creating bad karma, not relieving it.

3. Two grooms were upset with the way the place cards had been set up on their head table. The problem was they hadn’t followed our chart — they’d created their own and the staff couldn’t follow it. We fixed the problem before the guests were seated for dinner, but the grooms were too drunk to care. They screamed and yelled at me every chance they got. Icing on the cake — when the toasts were finished and I handed them the microphone to thank their guests, they actually used that time to publicly eviscerate me to their 60-plus guests who had just spent three lovely days enjoying the events my company planned. It was humiliating, and yes, the guests (and their families) apologized for the grooms’ behavior. Perfect wedding otherwise but we never heard from them again. I think they were mortified when they sobered up.

4. Beautifully executed wedding for a Chicago couple with Mexican origins. After dinner, during the toasts, the Best Man got up and began toasting dead gang members and pouring shots on the ground in memory of/honor of “Vatos Locos.” Um, haven’t I heard of them in way too many FBI wanted file stories? Scary. You never know who your clients really are until they arrive at a destination wedding.

5. A bridesmaid (and cousin of the bride) who was recently out of rehab took ALL of her Methadone on the first night of a five-day wedding weekend and freaked out. She called the police for an escort to the ferry (she thought she was in danger) and holed up in posh hotel on the big island with her much older boyfriend and the stash of drugs she’d obtained between the ferry and the resort. Unfortunately, she took her bridesmaid dress with her. I had to hunt it down, threatened to send the police to her hotel room (I knew she had drugs from her voice), and arranged to have the dress flown back to Vieques Island for another girlfriend to wear within a few hours of the wedding. Not easy. Not fun. But we did it. Be prepared to capture the wedding attire if a wedding party member makes a run for it!

6. The Best Man forgot the groom’s suitcase on the ferry dock on the main island — the same suitcase that contained the wedding rings AND the bride’s engagement ring. Say what? NEVER EVER pack your rings. And the engagement ring belongs on the bride. The worst part was the drunk Best Man (a US Marine officer, I might add) didn’t know where he left it — on the dock, in the taxi, on the ferry — not a clue. I used my position as police community liaison to work with an Agente in the Policia de Puerto Rico to track the bag and find it in the Customs holding area on the other island where it had been stowed after being abandoned. I can’t believe they lost it, but I REALLY can’t believe we found it. They had it back within hours.

7. The Mother of the Bride became ill and had to be emergency transported off the island, vomiting blood. I literally hijacked the governor’s helicopter off the tarmac (my police pilot friend was there waiting to fly the Guv back from a meeting with our mayor) and got the pilot to fly the MoB to a hospital on the big island. That night, the mom checked out of the hospital against medical advice and returned to Vieques. By midday the next day, she was throwing up buckets of blood and lost consciousness, and I had to have her transported via ambulance and then Medevac helicopter. She almost died. And then she turned around 24 hours later and checked out of the hospital against medical advice again, and returned to the island for the wedding. We had to tell the bride we couldn’t take any more responsibility for helping transport her if another emergency occurred. Suicide by wedding? I think not.

8. Drunken wedding guests, out of control, doing shots, and being verbally abusive to the service staff is, unfortunately, not as uncommon as you would think. We’ve had to call the police on one occasion when the very large, frightening groomsmen were stealing liquor bottles, breaking centerpieces and generally causing mayhem at a $ 4 million villa. The key is to have enough of our staff on hand with these large groups and always have a security plan ready to go on a minute’s notice. Oh yes, we all wear headsets and know what’s going on all over the wedding property at all time.

9. Three wedding guests (sorority sisters of the bride) took acid at the beginning of the wedding ceremony (we learned the sordid deets from the bride later on). By the time dinner was through, they were tripping hard! They tried to eat out of the caterer’s garbage, then stripped naked and jumped into the pool with the seven-year-old ring bearer. Once we had them out of the pool and back in the villa, they jumped up onto tabletops to dance, semi-dressed in high heels. Asked to get off the tables, one girl (can’t say “young lady” and she wasn’t mature enough to be a “woman”) jumped on my husband and attacked him like a spider monkey. The DJs had to help pull her off of him. My husband, a retired SWAT commander, was not amused. Neither were the bride or groom. Know who you are inviting before you mail those invitations or take the risk of an unpleasant surprise.

10. We planned and executed a Wiccan wedding for a lovely couple from California who didn’t tell me that they were witches until a week prior to the wedding. But I was less surprised than the traditional Jewish Mother of the Bride from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, who learned her daughter would be married by a Wiccan priest instead of a rabbi at the wedding rehearsal. From me. Shortly after that, the groom had a hysterical temper tantrum about wanting to move the wedding to a different part of the beach where he felt the “energy” was better. The elderly Mother of the Bride, to her credit, did not have a stroke right then and there, but it was a close one. Watching her old lady friends having to wash their panty-hose covered feet in the ocean to be “purified” and smudged with sage before the ceremony was absolutely priceless. Lesson of the day, find out in advance if your brides and grooms are witches and whether the guests (especially their parents) know they’ll be attending a less-than-traditional wedding.

Now I’m on a roll but it will have to wait for another time — so many more fun stories to share from so many different kinds of weddings. End of day, know as much as you can about your wedding group in advance so you can be prepared for whatever might happen during the main event.

Happy wedding planning!

Jimmy Fallon’s Obama-Putin Call Shows What Really Happened… Maybe

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon claims to have received footage of the most recent call between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin as the two discussed the crisis in Crimea.

In the clip above, Fallon’s Putin takes a swig of vodka, taunts the U.S. president on Obamacare, cites comic Yakov Smirnoff and mimics Putin’s weird laugh.

The pair even sing.

If calls between world leaders were really this much fun, the crisis would have been over ages ago.

Steve Wilkos Talks Jerry Springer And The Craziest Thing That Ever Happened (VIDEO)

Any Jerry Springer viewer knows how crazy the talk show can get, but Steve Wilkos’ story may take the cake.

While on HuffPost Live this week, the TV host opened up about a rather inappropriate moment on the notoriously dramatic talk show.

“Two guys were fighting, ripping their shirts off,” he explained. “This one guy gets his shirt taken off and he has a perfect formed female breast … and it’s gorgeous.”

The best part? He said he was born that way. Lady Gaga would be proud!
