Poverty in America - 46M people (2011)

I would like to dedicate this page on the rising number of poor in what we call the super power nation.  And among this poor there are also a number of them who are homeless.

American Statistic
Population: 311.7M

46.2M American are poor according to the latest figure(Sourse: CNN Money September, 2011 and New York Times Sept, 13, 2011)

Homeless in America - a video


Assalamu'laikum and greetings.
It has quite some time since my last post to this blog.  December, 24 last year.  About 4 months.  It has been a very busy months, as it has always been.  That not an excuse, I should say for not posting.  I will try to start writing again.  Well, there are a few things that I have in my mind at the moment.  Things that I'm trying to get them done.  Something to do with the academics of course. First is about the topic, "Learning Leaders".  It's related to the concept of leadership for learning.  My thesis is that the leadership model for leadership for learning is the learning leaders.  Today schools, including Malaysia need leaders who are true learners.  Leaders who are continuously learning and at the same time promote and support the learning of her teachers and pupils.  The future challenges, need a knowledgeable workforce, the knowledge worker.  Knowledge worker cannot be the product of a "factory" school.  It is a product of a special school, the school that learn (Senge, 2006).  The issue now is, how can we develop the leadership needed for a learning school.  We need a learning leader.  The rest of this writing is about the characteristics of this learning leader. Who is he? How does he think and act. What matters to him?  Then, how can we develop a learning leader?

(To be continued)
