Punishing Young Offenders Twice | EdWeek.org

Punishing Young Offenders Twice | EdWeek.org | digital divide information | Scoop.it

There is plenty of debate today about which students need more resources and support to be academically and behaviorally successful.

 

We weigh services for urban vs. suburban students, and, less frequently, young people in rural settings. Since charter schools came into existence, there has been great debate about traditional public schools vs. charters. At the same time, the No Child Left Behind Act has led us to compare high-performing and low-performing schools.

 

Despite all the talk, however, our nation's most educationally neglected youths continue to be invisible to all but a few.

 

Policymakers make connections between below-grade-level reading by the end of 3rd grade and difficulties in later life. Many advocates, in turn, champion efforts to assist and give voice to the young people on the so-called school-to-prison pipeline.

Monuments to America’s Past, and Future

Monuments to America’s Past, and Future | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Three new national monuments will be protected forever by the federal government from development and destructive neglect.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

A historic industrial district in Illinois, a weed-choked gulch in Hawaii and a stretch of riverine Colorado wilderness, home to eagles and bears. These three dissimilar American places are the newest national monuments, established this month by President Obama, to be protected forever by the federal government from development and destructive neglect.
