Voucher legislation meets resistance from educators, parents, and elected leaders | Brian Washington | NEA.org

Voucher legislation meets resistance from educators, parents, and elected leaders | Brian Washington | NEA.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told state leaders this week at a legislative conference in Washington, D.C. that the Trump-DeVos education budget, which includes $250 million for failed ideas like private school vouchers, is designed to “enhance” school choice legislation at the state level.

However, as voucher proponents begin to salivate in anticipation of all the federal funding they think they’ll get, they need to beware. Parents, educators, and lawmakers who support public schools are banding together on behalf of students and leading a strong resistance against using public tax dollars to pay for tuition at private schools.

This resistance is fueled by the fact that vouchers, including education savings accounts and tuition tax credits (No matter what they call them…they are all vouchers!), drain critical dollars away from public schools and the vast majority of students who attend them.

Bill Murray: How Art Can Change Your Life. | immersive media | Scoop.it
People often ask great storytellers—writers, producers, directors, authors, etc.—where they come up with their stories. They inevitably say something like "write/tell what you know." In other words, write (or speak) from your own life experiences. This is why I always say you have to live a life to tell a life. I believe this is what Murray is saying above when he says it's important to have a "bunch of experiences" from which to draw. The experiences—good and bad (but especially bad)—are like a persona library of history and insights for the storyteller.

New Zealand school abolishes gendered uniforms, offering same clothes to all | Eleanor Ainge Roy | The Guardian

New Zealand school abolishes gendered uniforms, offering same clothes to all | Eleanor Ainge Roy | The Guardian | immersive media | Scoop.it

A New Zealand primary school has abolished gendered uniforms for its pupils and replaced them with shorts, a kilt and trousers that can be worn by either sex.

The move came after complaints from female students who resisted having to wear a skirt.

Dunedin North Intermediate in the South Island has more than 200 pupils aged between 10 and 13 years. In late 2015 a number of female students began asking why they were restricted to wearing kilts to school, saying the archaic uniform reinforced traditional and outdated gender stereotypes.

The school agreed the girls could wear trousers, and a small number of girls started wearing the boys uniform in 2016.

However this option added further complications, with the girls who chose to wear trousers bring teased for dressing like boys.

“The first changes seemed like a bit of a punishment actually,” said Heidi Hayward, principal of Dunedin North Intermediate school.

Why Even the World's Highest-Scoring Schools Need to Change | Marion Brady | AlterNet.org

Why Even the World's Highest-Scoring Schools Need to Change | Marion Brady | AlterNet.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

Betsy DeVos, the new U.S. Secretary of Education, has a theory. She agrees with Jeb Bush and other education amateurs now shaping American education that “the system” is basically sound, but teachers lack skills and kids lack grit. Fortunately, there’s an easy fix. Competition in the form of market forces—choice, vouchers, merit pay, charters, privatization, and so on—will shape them up.

DeVos is wrong. Dozens of variables—most of them beyond educator control—affect kids’ ability to learn. Believing that market forces can erase the effects of those variables is magical thinking.

Albert Einstein, Buckminster Fuller, David Bohm, Alfred North Whitehead, Ernest Boyer, Harlan Cleveland, Arthur Koestler, Thomas Merton, Peter Senge, and many other internationally known and respected thinkers have a different theory about poor learner and school performance. They say the core curriculum—the curriculum America’s reformers have standardized with the Common Core State Standards—is poor. They say it’s fragmented, incoherent, artificial, disconnected from the reality it’s supposed to explain to learners and help them explore.

If they’re right, until educators acknowledge the inadequacy of the core and satisfactorily address its problems, even the world’s highest-scoring schools won’t serve learners well.

New Bestselling Novel Should Be Required Reading for Clueless White People | Erin Keane | AlterNet.org

New Bestselling Novel Should Be Required Reading for Clueless White People | Erin Keane | AlterNet.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

Every so often the right book comes along at the right time and quite deservedly catches fire. Angie Thomas’ debut Young Adult novel “The Hate U Give” is that book for early 2017 — it’s topical, urgent, necessary, and if that weren’t enough, it’s also a highly entertaining and engaging read.

Expectations have been high for Thomas’ book, which is billed as “inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.” Maybe the most hotly anticipated YA novel of the last year, “The Hate U Give” catapulted to industry prominence a year ago, when Balzer + Bray acquired the manuscript in a 13-house auction for an unknown (but reputed to be in the six-figure range) amount. The announcement that the film was optioned by Fox 2000, with “Hunger Games” star Amandla Stenberg to star and George Tillman Jr. (“Soul Food”) attached to direct, came soon thereafter.

This is not the average response to a first novel from a 20-something writer who is not the product of a prestigious MFA program or the New York publishing scene. Hailing from Jackson, Mississippi, Thomas’ previous claim to fame was, by her own admission, an article about her precocious rapping skills in the now-defunct teen magazine Right On! (Enthusiastic citations of this delightful bio detail have, alas, ruined any chance of Google discovering the actual article in any online archives.)

Digital divide persists even as lower-income Americans make gains in tech adoption | Monica Anderson | PewResearch.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

Nearly 30 years after the debut of the World Wide Web, internet use, broadband adoption and smartphone ownership have grown rapidly for all Americans – including those who are less well off financially. But even as many aspects of the digital divide have narrowed over time, the digital lives of lower- and higher-income Americans remain markedly different.

Roughly three-in-ten adults with household incomes below $30,000 a year don’t own a smartphone. Nearly half don’t have home broadband services or a traditional computer. And a majority of lower-income Americans are not tablet owners. By comparison, many of these devices are nearly ubiquitous among adults from households earning $100,000 or more a year.

Five myths about college admissions | Valerie Strauss | WashPost.com

Five myths about college admissions | Valerie Strauss | WashPost.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Most high school seniors have now heard back about their college applications, a process often cast as a kind of “Hunger Games,” with young Americans battling it out for a chance to attend one of more than 3,000 four-year degree-granting colleges, seeking help wherever it may come, believing that the result will determine the course of their lives.


But despite the crush of advisers proffering their supposed expertise for money, the endeavor is shrouded in misconceptions: that colleges don’t check applicants’ social-media pages, that world-famous people like the Obama daughters can get into school with little more than a good recommendation, that most students aren’t admitted to their first choice. (They are, but many can’t attend because of the cost.)


Here are five of the most stubborn.

'Get Out' director wants young black filmmakers' scripts | Rose Fletcher | DigitalSpy.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Jordan Peele's directorial debut Get Out is absolutely killing it at the box office in the US, already taking $113m (on a budget of $5m). It's a brilliant, frightening and funny horror about modern liberal racism (check out our review), which has gone down a storm with critics and audiences alike.

One of the things that stands out about the film though, is that it's a story that's rarely told. In fact black protagonists in horror films, and black directors of horror films, are a rarity.

Peele wants to do something about that.

Talking exclusively to Digital Spy, he offered this to would-be black movie-makers...

Art in the age of ones and zeros: BioArt | Rich Haridy | NewAtlas.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Art has always been fundamentally intertwined with technology. New techniques and materials have constantly allowed artists to innovate and create new types of works. Our new series, which kicked off with examinations of "datamoshing" and ASCII art, looks at the impact of digital technologies on art and looks at how artists are creating entirely new forms of art using these modern tools. In this instalment we examine the compelling and controversial field of BioArt.

As various biotechnologies evolved late in the 20th century, artists began looking to science to influence their practice. Incorporating bacteria, living tissue, biohacking and a variety of biological practices, the field of BioArt arose as the perfect intersection between art and science.
