FreshEd #268 - School Socioeconomic Composition (Michael Sciffer & Laura Perry)
Welcome to our first episode of 2022. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been a bit quiet. But we’ve been hard at work producing the next round of Flux episodes (they’re going to be awesome!), developing a new podcast (more details on that later!), and figuring out how to engage you, our listeners, in more ways. We are thrilled to be back and are looking forward to our sixth year! One of our goals this year is to highlight the work of PhD students more regularly. So, to kick things off, Michael Sciffer and his supervisor, Laura Perry, join me to talk about school segregation and compositional effects across countries. Michael G. Sciffer is a Ph.D. student at Murdoch University, where Laura Perry is a Professor. Their latest co-written article with Andrew McConney is entitled “Does school socioeconomic composition matter more in some countries than others, and if so, why?”, which was published in the journal Comparative Education.www.freshedpodcast.com/sciffer-perry--Get in touch!Twitter: @FreshEdpodcastFacebook: FreshEdEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgSupport FreshEd: www.freshedpodcast.com/support/
3707 Laura Perry Part 3 (PG) (LGBTQ Agenda, Grace, Reconciliation) Laura underwent multiple surgeries as she committed to her pursuit of transitioning to a man. But she was disappointed after every one that it hadn't changed her inside. While creating a web page for her mother’s Bible Study, she discovered the Bible wasn’t old and dull, but the living word of God that has stood firm throughout millennia. As she desired to be a man of God, she realized she was rejecting God’s creative design. She finally decided to leave her trans-life, and start over as the woman God had created. Now her testimony and ministry reaches across the globe.To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/110/29

She decides she’s through with it and determines she could be the boyfriend she never had if she dated a woman. After joining an LGBTQ support group, Laura transitions into a man, Jacobe. But the fun wears off and she’s left wondering whats next as she goes under anesthesia for a surgery to remove her breastspleading with God that she’ll wake up.To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/110/29
3705 Laura Perry Part 1 (PG) (Rebellion, Satanism, LGBTQ Agenda) As an energetic and strong-willed child, Laura longed for the same connection with her mother that her brother had. Turning to partying and rebellion to numb the pain, she ended up across the country from her parents, with evil spirits attached to her. Her uncle tries to intervene, but Laura didn’t welcome his help. The pain and powerlessness she experienced led a broken Laura to pursue a masculine ego that would protect her and encourage her to reinvent herself. Leading to her first step into a dangerous identity game.To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/110/29
