The silent minority

The silent minority | digital divide information | Scoop.it
America’s largest ethnic group has assimilated so well that people barely notice it

 

German-Americans are America’s largest single ethnic group (if you divide Hispanics into Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, etc). Yet despite their numbers, they are barely visible. During the first world war, parts of America grew hysterically anti-German. Many stopped speaking German and anglicized their names. The second world war saw less anti-German hysteria, but Hitler and the Holocaust gave German-Americans more reasons to hide their origins.

How to Define Poverty? Let Us Count the Ways

How to Define Poverty? Let Us Count the Ways | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Defining poverty is not easy. Even if the Census Bureau's new measure calculates necessary expenditures more accurately than the current formula, the new approach, like the current one, still uses income as the single criterion for judging who is poor. That leaves out neighborhoods, for instance. Is a ghetto family impoverished because of its crime-ridden surroundings and poor schools, although the family has enough income to rise above the official poverty threshold? And there is the issue of responsibility. Should the family of a hardworking full-time employee earning the minimum wage be blamed for poverty because the minimum no longer lifts the worker's income above the poverty level, as it did in the 1960's and early 70's?

An hour in their shoes: Muscatine teachers participate in poverty simulation | digital divide information | Scoop.it

description by Middleweb SmartBrief

 

"Educators in an Iowa school district gained a better understanding of the effects of poverty by participating in an hourlong simulation. Teachers received family profiles and resources, then had to navigate the weekly struggles faced by low-income families, such as finding work, child care and other services."

SREB’s Commission on Computer Science and Information Technology offers five actions for states and schools to help more young people — especially girls, black and Hispanic students, and students from low-income families — learn computer science and explore and choose careers in computing fields.

The actions show how schools can teach computer science and computational thinking in ways that deepen students’ mastery of core academic subjects. The full report also surveys the disciplines, workforce needs and current state of computer science education at the K-12 and postsecondary levels.
