Making Failure Pay: For-Profit Tutoring, High-Stakes Testing, and Public Schools

A little-discussed point of the No baby Left at the back of Act (NCLB) is a mandate that calls for failing colleges to rent after-school tutoring companies—the greatest of that are deepest, for-profit corporations—and to pay them with federal money. Making Failure Pay takes a difficult examine the results of this new blurring of the bounds among executive, colleges, and trade in ny urban, the country’s biggest university district.

Globalization, International Education Policy and Local Policy Formation: Voices from the Developing World

This edited quantity makes a speciality of how overseas schooling coverage, set by means of foreign policymakers and donors, affects neighborhood schooling coverage in constructing international locations. The book’s fundamental objective is to offer voice to students from constructing nations and areas worldwide by means of inviting them to discover how the foreign coverage, perpetually associated with foreign relief, affects schooling coverage formation and implementation of their kingdom or sector and the way this impact does or doesn't meet the neighborhood cultural, social, monetary, and political wishes.

Education and Social Justice in a Digital Age

In lots of nations, the focal point of faculty curriculum shifts from side to side among conventional matters (such as arithmetic and historical past) and the improvement of abilities (such as challenge solving). Rosamund Sutherland argues right here that skills-focused curriculum—often visible as getting ready scholars to paintings in our electronic age—can truly exacerbate present social inequalities.

Sample text

In developing a scope the mathematics teams start with the stateidentified content for a particular course or grade. The foundation includes only minimum requirements. For each objective the team needs to decide if the objective is to be introduced, mastered, or reviewed. Team members then organize objectives by clusters of related objectives around mathematical concepts. Skills are attached to objectives that provide an opportunity for application. For instance, recognizing halves and fourths might be combined with lessons on measurement.

By reviewing how standards can be assessed, teachers also will gain a better feel for how lessons should be structured. Principals and Standards for School Mathematics identifies 10 standards to supply a framework for a well-developed, comprehensive mathematics program. Five of these standards are content: number and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability. The remaining five are process standards: problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections, and representation.

Specifically, instructional leadership needs to emerge to change classroom practices in mathematics. Instructional leadership is an element within the broad spectrum of leadership skills targeted at improving student achievement. A dire need for new instructional leadership has arisen from the repeated failure of public schools to close the achievement gap in student performance, as well as from a general erosion of public confidence in schools (Short & Greer, 2002). For substantive change to occur, mathematics leaders need to analyze the current instructional model and formulate a new vision.
