"...However, the world is still far from the vision articulated in Beijing. Approximately 1 in 3 women throughout the world will experience physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. Less than a quarter of parliamentarians in the world are women. In over 50 countries there is no legal protection for women against domestic violence. Almost 300,000 women and girls died in 2013 from causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. Approximately 1 in 3 married women aged 20 to 24 were child brides. In many parts of the world, women and girls cannot make decisions on their most private matters -- sexuality, marriage, children. Girls and women who pursue their own life choices are still murdered by their own families in the dishonorable practice of so-called honor killings. All of our societies remain affected by stereotypes based on the inferiority of women, which often denigrate, humiliate and sexualize them...."

How many colleges and universities have closed since 2016?

How many colleges and universities have closed since 2016? | ED 262 KCKCC Fa '18 | Scoop.it
We’re tracking the ongoing consolidation across higher education in the U.S. and examining what the trend means for the industry.
Dennis Swender's insight:
"Data from the National Center for Education Statistics show that more than 100 for-profit colleges closed between the 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years alone, while 20 nonprofit colleges shuttered during that period. And although the number of credentials issued increased 1.2% from 2012-13 to 2016-17, for-profits offered nearly 30% fewer than nonprofits.

Poverty and the ideological imperative: a call to unhook from deficit and grit ideology and to strive for structural ideology in teacher education | Paul Gorski - Academia.edu

Poverty and the ideological imperative: a call to unhook from deficit and grit ideology and to strive for structural ideology in teacher education | Paul Gorski - Academia.edu | ED 262 KCKCC Fa '18 | Scoop.it
In this article I explore the educational equity implications of three popular ideological positions that drive teachers’ and teacher educators’ understandings of, and responses to, poverty and economic injustice in schools: deficit ideology, grit
Dennis Swender's insight:
Internationally acclaimed multicultural authority Paul Gorski contends that students have been “socialized to fundamentally misunderstand poverty and its impact on educational outcome disparities. As a result, despite good intentions, the strategies they [are] capable of imagining – trendy instructional interventions, the cultivation of grit in students experiencing poverty, programs designed to encourage higher levels of parent involvement by economically [marginalized] families – [sidestep] completely the causes of the disparities they [are] desperate to redress. The trouble [is] not dispositional or practical. Instead it [is] ideological, borne of faulty belief systems that, if not reshaped, [will] undermine their potentials to be the equitable teachers they [hope] to be.”

15 companies that no longer require employees to have a college degree

15 companies that no longer require employees to have a college degree | ED 262 KCKCC Fa '18 | Scoop.it

The economy continues to be a friendly place for job seekers today, and not just for the ultra-educated — economists are predicting ever-improving prospects for workers without a degree as well.

Recently, job-search site Glassdoor compiled a list of 15 top employers that have said they no longer require applicants to have a college degree. Companies like Google, Apple, IBM and EY are all in this group. But currently, EY's non-degree requirements are applicable to candidates in the UK.

In 2017, IBM's vice president of talent Joanna Daley told CNBC Make It that about 15 percent of her company's U.S. hires don't have a four-year degree. She said that instead of looking exclusively at candidates who went to college, IBM now looks at candidates who have hands-on experience via a coding boot camp or an industry-related vocational class.

Four years on campus might be one too many

Four years on campus might be one too many | ED 262 KCKCC Fa '18 | Scoop.it

The basic cause of America’s student-loan crisis is no mystery: College tuition and fees continue to soar while the earnings of recent graduates remain flat. It shouldn’t be surprising that there’s also a straightforward way to lower the cost of a college degree: Reduce the amount of time it takes to earn one.

The U.S.’s four-year bachelor’s degree is based on cultural convention, not pedagogical wisdom. In most European countries, as well as India, Singapore and Australia, the majority of undergraduate programs take three years to complete. Some U.S. colleges allow enterprising students to finish their requirements early, but that option is available only to those who enter college with sufficient credits from advanced courses taken in high school — and some elite schools are trying to limit even this practice.

[Slides] 25 dying professions you should avoid

[Slides] 25 dying professions you should avoid | ED 262 KCKCC Fa '18 | Scoop.it

John Pugliano, author of “The Robots are Coming: A Human's Survival Guide to Profiting in the Age of Automation,” sees plenty of white collar jobs that will be threatened by automation.

"Bottom line, any routine job that can easily be defined by a mathematical or logic equation will be at risk," Pugliano said. "Opportunity will be [there] for those that can create new produces/services or solve/fix unexpected problems."

So your accountant may not have a job in the future, but plastic surgeons and emergency room doctors should do well. And plumbers, Pugliano said, will always have work.

Pugliano and other experts contacted by Work + Money offered professions to avoid (not because they will completely disappear, but because the job market will likely be in a state of decline) while also providing alternatives where skills utilized in those dying professions can be applied for a more secure employment future.

The Crazy Amount #America Spends On Higher #Education, In One Chart | ED 262 KCKCC Fa '18 | Scoop.it

Kenneth Weene's curator insight, September 18, 10:35 AM
The question is why do we spend so much per student. Is it quality of teacher pay? I doubt that, at least not when it comes to the adjuncts, teaching assistants, and graduate students who are doing so much of the actual instruction. Is it because the big-name professors are able to force colleges to compete for them while in other countries such competition is frowned on? Probably, that accounts for some of the difference. Is it because student services are better? Probably to a small degree; in part because colleges are required to provide support services for those with learning and other disabilities. However, my guess is the biggest cost differences are for athletics and for alumni affairs. Of course, to some degree both of those give a return in donations and yes even shares of commercial television fees, but they skew the figures. The real question for me is should football, for example, be considered part of college life or has it become its own business model? As for those reunions and alumni activities, which I by the way enjoy from my alma mater as much as the next graduate, they do produce endowments and contributions, but they really are more uniquely American and maybe shouldn’t be considered part of spending on students. Take those two things out, and my guess is there is little separating American universities from the rest of the developed world. What do you think? Why do American colleges spend more per student? Any alternative ideas?

Too many poorer students feel they don’t fit in at university. We need more academics proud to be from a similar background


‘One way to increase the numbers of working-class students would be to employ more academics from similar backgrounds.’ Photograph: David Sillitoe for the Guardian
As the new university year approaches, it seems the adage “not for the likes of us” remains pertinent for working-class students. Figures on participation rates in higher education clearly show that although numbers are rising, universities are still attracting a lower proportion of working-class women and men, based on socio-economic classifications. This is despite a slew of thinktank proposals on how higher education institutions could encourage more working-class students.

Gen Zers Look to Teachers First, YouTube Second for Instruction

Students in Generation Z would rather learn from YouTube videos than from nearly any other form of instruction. YouTube was designated as the preferred mode of learning by 59 percent of Gen Zers in a survey on the topic, compared to in-person group activities with classmates (mentioned by 57 percent), learning applications or games (47 percent) and printed books (also 47 percent). The only method of instruction that beat out YouTube? Teachers.
