The safety needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students turned paramount Sunday when a man walked into a gay nightclub and embarked on the worst shooting in U.S. history.

As the argument goes and studies prove, children of all backgrounds benefit from diversified classrooms and schools where they can interact with peers of different races and ethnicities. Teaching Tolerance, an educational project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, concluded in a comprehensive review of research on racial and ethnic diversity in schools that “a racially integrated student body is necessary to obtain cross-racial understanding, which may lead to a reduction of harmful stereotypes and bias.” But access to diversity is only the first step, not the destination, said Cappella, noting that the study points to the need for teachers to create classrooms where interracial friendships can develop and grow.
"When I found out that James Tanton—an Australian who serves as the Mathematical Association of America’s mathematician at large, and a proponent for Common Core—wanted to debate Hacker last month at the National Museum of Mathematics in New York, I had to watch. But as I watched, I had a sinking feeling: It was clear that neither of these men had ever had the experience of being told, either directly or indirectly, that math was not for them. And I realized that, by not being told this, they had never felt compelled to steer clear of math and numbers-heavy careers, even if high-school math wasn’t fun for them either."
Educators put a lot of stock in, well, education. According to an infographic from Samsung Electronics America and market research giant GfK, 91 percent of teachers believe their success in the classroom depends heavily on having access to technology training. Unfortunately, 60 percent of teachers don’t feel adequately prepared to integrate technology into their lessons.

“The best treatment is do to the whole diploma and take all the exams,” Young said. “That’s the gold standard. But it turns out, if you can’t do that, and you just participate in one course, that’s sufficient to boost long-term educational outcomes.”
Young not only found elevated high school graduation and college-going rates, but also that low-income students persisted in college through at least the first year at the same rate as their wealthier peers. Future studies will continue to track these students.
According to Long and Wood, crisis is the product of a student's stress that is kept alive by the actions and reactions of others. When a child's or teen's feelings are aroused by stress, he or she learns to behave in ways that shield him or her from painful feelings. These behaviors (aggression, avoidance) may be undesirable, but they protect the child from distressing feelings. Others (parents, teachers, peers) perceive the behavior as negative, and they respond in a negative fashion. This negative response produces additional stress, and the youth again reacts in an inappropriate matter. The spiraling of behaviors causes a minor incident to escalate into a crisis.
