When you write a blog, the end of the year seems to require looking back and looking ahead. If tough school discipline measures are meant to maintain stability in the classroom, then a new definition of stable might be in order: A new study argues high use of suspensions and expulsions brings down all students — even the ones who behave well. A researcher with the Albert Shanker Institute flagged the study, which was published this month in the American Sociological Review.
Survey findings highlight inequalities in the amount of time available for learning across low and high poverty High Schools.
The myth of the Swedish education miracle
Community stressors and chronic problems with school conditions lead to far higher levels of lost instructional time in high poverty high schools. As millions of immigrants waited for President Barack Obama to shed light on their future Thursday, educators, too, had a stake in the conversation. Ever since my second week living in the District of Columbia, when I found myself alone on a commuter train the conductor had apparently deemed malfunctioning while I was lost in my music, I like to keep all five senses focused on my surroundings.
But on Monday, I decided to give the headphones another try. Approved by Calif. You can read my overview of the full poll, which focuses heavily on questions about teacher quality and preparation, here. Prompted by the controversy over the type of equipment the Ferguson police department used during protests over the death of Michael Brown, news organizations across the country started requesting information about a U.
Department of Defense program that provided police departments with defense equipment. Some of those police departments happen to belong to school districts, colleges and universities. For years, students attending the Los Angeles Unified School District could earn citations from police officers for behaviors such as fighting.

In the wake of confrontations following the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo. In Texas, a state known for its zero-tolerance approach to school discipline, 80 percent of its prisoners are high school dropouts. And as more research finds a link between suspensions and quitting school early, the evidence is mounting that keeping kids from learning for behavioral reasons hurts their academic outcomes. Against this backdrop is White Middle School in central Texas. More students are walking into classrooms with high stress levels than in previous generations, but a few innovative schools are helping kids cope with these challenges and succeed academically.
And teachers the most likely to provide counseling at school, said Bond during an EWA National Seminar panel discussion on student mental health. An organization of Latino parents and youth has released a new report praising Colorado for progress the state has made in the discipline of Latino students. The organization previously accused Colorado schools of using zero tolerance policies that swept students of color into the legal system.
And with the roadways iced over and the precipitation piling up, it looks like education officials made the right decision. Former New York CIty Mayor Michael Bloomberg viewed breaking up large failing high schools and creating smaller ones as one potential remedy to closing the achievement gap. Now his successor, newly elected Mayor Bill de Blasio will have the opportunity to reverse the program. In a commentary piece for Education Week, University of California, Berkeley education professor Bruce Fuller writes that many of the smaller campuses just furthered segregation by race and class.
Small schools sometimes have just students. Dropout prevention is one of the holy grails in U. With the release of audio recordings of the Sandy Hook calls, media outlets are weighing the news value of using them against the inevitable criticism that to do so is macabre exploitation. But a new report out of New York City — where one out of every five students missed a month or more of school last year — suggests an intensive community-wide initiative is gaining ground. A conservative think tank is offering an online quiz to help parents identify their educational priorities — and to demonstrate that diverse groups have more in common in their expectations for schools and students than many people might think.
Justin Pope of the Associated Press talks about how he approached the timely and difficult topic of how universities are applying the Title IX gender discrimination law to sexual assault cases. Jenny Brundin of Colorado Public Radio talks about following a group of teachers, administrators and students going through a turnaround effort at a failing school in Denver.
