Productivity in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology

Productivity models are an effective way for audiology and speech-language pathology programs to examine how efficiently they provide services (not merely counting the number of services they perform).

Hannah 's insight:

This is an insightful article that explains the need for the measurement of productivity in Speech and Language Pathology.

Sometimes it is hard to measure productivity in a job that sees such slow progress in patients. Therefore, there must be other methods of measuring whether or not Speech and Language Pathologists actually do their work.

Overall, I was able to learn that there are many ways to measure efficiency in Speech and Language Pathology and that employers are always looking for more ways for their pathologists to work honestly and efficiently. Personally, this article shows me that speech language pathology is a career that has a lot of blurred lines, which could be overwhelming or confusing.

Court: OK to fire teacher for 'religious materials' - WND.com

Court: OK to fire teacher for 'religious materials' - WND.com | Teaching and Speech and Language Pathology | Scoop.it
WND.com Court: OK to fire teacher for 'religious materials' WND.com The Ohio Supreme Court ruled a school district justifiably dismissed a science teacher on grounds of insubordination who kept a Bible on his desk and taught his religious beliefs...
Hannah 's insight:

This is an article about the consequences of teaching religion in public schools. One teacher had dared to defy this rule and taught his students Creationism, which is seen by the government as false and highly religious. By failing to teach under the guidelines provided by the government and the school, this teacher was fired from his job. This is another tale that teaches people the power of the government and the restrictions to teaching environments because of it. On a personal note, this article further convinces me into teaching in private schools if I am to be an educator, because I am not confident that I will be able to step away from my faith while teaching. As a devout Christian, or one that would like to be one, this is going to be difficult for me. Thankfully, there are quite a few Christian schools in Washingtonthat I could consider working in.

Over 100,000 Elementary Students in Bandung without Classrooms

Over 100,000 Elementary Students in Bandung without Classrooms | Teaching and Speech and Language Pathology | Scoop.it
The rapidly increasing number of students makes it hard for the Education Office to
keep up.
Hannah 's insight:

In some areas, the increase of interest in education is hard to keep up with. This is both good and bad because although there are more students interested in learning, there are just not enough resources to keep up with them. This sad reality is not just present in Bandung, but around the world. There is a need for more teachers and buildings, and funding is not adequet. In the United States there is an overflow of teachers who are job-less. I hope that more people are willing to go into teaching in other countries as well. I, myself, am looking into teachnig out of the country in places that actually need help.

UNM, NMSU partner for bilingual pathology
ABQ Journal
The two schools recently received a single $1.25 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to train and prepare 48 new bilingual speech-language pathologists over the next five years.
Hannah 's insight:

This is by far the most interesting article I have read in a long time. In this receeding economy, it appears that some careers are doing rather well.The U.S. Department of Education is investing  quite a lot of  money in bilingual speech-language pathologists. This brings hope to me--a prospective SLP who is bilingual and is working on becoming trilingual. This article showed me that there is an increasing demand for bilingual people in the workforce due to the rising number of immigrants in this country. Therefore, I am going to work more on my Spanish and Korean to put myself in a better position for being hired.

Hannah 's insight:

Unfortunately, controversies between teacher-and-student relationships have risen increasingly in the past decade. This article clarifies that this is indeed a problem, as shown in many cases of the past. It is important that teachers and students do not cross their repective boundaries toward each other.

I hope that when I start to teach, I will be able to know the limits and set a proper boundary between my students and I.

Recent killings of teachers in Mass., Nev., bring risks of profession to the ...
Fox News
The recent killings of two teachers are uncomfortable reminders that education can be a risky profession.
Hannah 's insight:

This article shows me that education could be a dangerous, and intimidating profession. However, this also makes me realize that many educators around the world are taking this challenge on in order to spread literacy and awareness. I have profound repsect for educators who face these threats. I also am starting to wonder if I am ready for this job. Am I ready to put myself at risk for the sake of others? Although this may sound selfish, I do have my doubts-especially if this career is a dangerous one.
