By Sam Yousif :: 8 Views :: Article Rating :: Career & Education

Michigan, USA - College-aged Chaldeans are often faced with a difficult dilemma – go on to college or find work to help their parents.  As immigrants many Chaldean parents struggle to find jobs, or are increasingly forced to create a business so that they may have a job.   As such, the children are called into the business to help interpret, keep payroll costs down, and serve as a trusted resource to give the parents a break from the grueling 90 hour work-week.

The dilemma is unfair for a majority of the young Chaldean adults hungry for a college education that leads to a reliable and highly regarded professional life.

By Sam Yousif :: 14 Views :: Article Rating :: Career & Education, Law & Order

Michigan, USA - Chaldean Alumni of Troy Athens public high school in Michigan, USA is at risk of identity theft due to a stolen computer hard drive.  The computer hard drive was taken from the district and contained all the necessary information needed to compromise a student’s identity.  Through an investigation, the school learned that students’ transcripts, test scores, addresses, family names,  and Social Security numbers were saved on the stolen drive.

The Troy School District and Superintendent mailed out a letter to former students of the high school who graduated from 1994 to present indicating that former students will be given 14 months of free credit monitoring services. 

Pressure from the grass roots student alumni movement formerly known as the Unhappy Student Organization, renamed to Troy Athens Voice is working to have the 14 month credit monitoring service extended. 

Chaldean students who graduated from the Troy public school system must apply for the free services before December 31, 2006 year.  Chaldean students of Troy can apply online.

Michigan, USA - Students, family members, teachers, employees, and alumni of Marian high school are outraged.  The all-girl private Catholic high school has come under attack by homosexual activists.  “The gay people, TV, and newspapers want us to do something wrong and we will not.  They talk too much about sex these people.  This is sick of them.  That is why I don’t want any of my children, nephews, nieces, or anyone I know to go to public school.  They want you to believe that the way you behave is okay if you can make others say it is okay,” says  Enam Bahoura, a Chaldean parent. 

The nationally-acclaimed Catholic high school with a large enrollment of Chaldeans finds themselves under target of the local papers for teaching their religious convictions.  Both the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press, owned by Gannett News ran what many in southeast Michigan feel are biased articles to promote the homosexual agenda.

By Ziad Bitti :: 82127 Views :: Article Rating :: Career & Education, Government & Society

California, USA – Chaldean Bushra Butres challenges the old guard of the Cajon Valley school board, which oversees a district of 28 elementary and middle schools in the inner city and more rural neighborhoods. 

Incumbents Marsha L. Saben, Jill D. Barto and Jane Cruz Alfano are being challenged by  Bushra “Nissou” Butres in the Nov. 7 election.

The Cajon Valley districty has a large population of Chaldeans and Assyrians but is poorly represented in school policy or understanding.  Many in the community have long sought a qualified candidate to bring a unique perspective of the challenges new citizens in the Cajon Valley schools face.  Many in the Chaldean community feel Butres is the right person for the job.
