Now You See It // The Blog of Author Cathy N. Davidson » Edu-Traitor! Confessions of a Prof Who Believes Higher Ed Shouldn’t Be the Only Goal | International Baccalaureate Program | Scoop.it

I’ve taught career-focussed kids. I know their talents. I know their needs. I know their frustrations. So when the IB came to me 4 years ago and asked me to head a project that was going nowhere, I grabbed the opportunity with both hands. My job was to convince the people, who could make a difference , of the merits of developing a programme directed at career-focussed students. Together we’ve faced many hurdles and been involved in our fair share of battles, particularly from the conservative forces within the organization, but eventually we won the day. And so I speak to you today knowing the IBCC has become a mainstream offering. An offering that could change the public face of the IB. 

Maybe the IB in its own small way can be a catalyst for changing attitudes and values in the education community, so that all students are valued – not just academically driven students.

Superintendent's Welcome

Greetings and welcome to the Westlake Academy website!

Based upon my professional career experience, I have become convinced that those cities and towns with the brightest future are those that are knowledge-based.  Specifically, I am referring to communities those communities that treat the acquisition and development of knowledge by their citizens as an asset that must be pursued with passion and rigor in order to advance their community's quality of life.  Westlake has an immediate advantage in this arena; it owns its own school!

Not only does Westlake own its public charter school, but it has built Westlake Academy on the cornerstone of the International Baccalaureate curriculum which stresses inductive learning by encouraging our students to learn by asking "who, what, why, where, and how".

Perigee “Super Moon” Rises Over Hawaii Kai

May 05, 2012 | Mr. Justin Mew |

While driving home on the H-1 to Hawaii Kai from my parent's house on Alewa Heights, I noticed a huge moon rising behind The Cantessa. It looked as though the moon was going to enter Earth's Atmosphere. As it turns out, today, the moon makes its closest revolution to Earth, some 31,000 miles closer than at apogee. Grabbed my camera after pulling in to Maunalua Bay Park. There were easily three dozen cars with passengers having some sort of camera in the lot as well. Tonight's moon was 14% bigger and 30% brighter!
