The Resegregation of America’s Schools

The Resegregation of America’s Schools | Education | Scoop.it

"Sixty years after the Supreme Court declared an end to 'separate but equal' education, many schools have moved back in time, isolating poor black and Latino students in segregated schools. ProPublica investigates Tuscaloosa schools, among most rapidly resegregating in the country. Freed from court oversight, Tuscaloosa's schools have seemed to move backwards in time. The citywide integrated high school is gone, replaced by three smaller schools. Central retains the name of the old powerhouse, but nothing more. A struggling school serving the city's poorest part of town, it is 99 percent black. D'Leisha, an honors student since middle school, has only marginal college prospects. Predominantly white neighborhoods adjacent to Central have been gerrymandered into the attendance zones of other, whiter schools." | by Nikole Hannah-Jones

Exploring Transformational and Transactional Educational Leadership. | Education | Scoop.it
Transformational Leadership is about placing an emphasis on engaging people in a shared vision for the school whereas transactional leadership can be defined as offering a reward or incentive in return for the achievement of goals (Bollington 2004). It stimulates the extra effort needed from people to bring about organisational change and transformational leaders have a much stronger relationship with subordinates than transactional leaders (Geijsel et al 2003). Therefore, the followers of transformational leaders are more likely to want to put in extra effort than followers of transactional leaders.Educational Leadership Much has been written about effective educational leadership styles (Townsend 2011) and there appears to be no shortage of literature on this topic as a search shows on  Apri...

You can drag a horse to water. However, most teachers make no effort to upgrade their skills beyond getting the certificate that makes them what they are. Teachers have to be on fire and motivated to present the best version of themselves.

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Education | Scoop.it

Teachers who work silently, don’t tweet, blog and discuss ideas with people around the world are obsolete. Teachers are no longer working locally but globally and it’s our job to share what we do and see what others are doing. If a teacher is no longer learning then he shouldn’t be teaching other people.

 

We should all be tweeting, blogging and sharing what works and doesn’t work, get and give advice to and from co-workers around the world. We should constantly be improving our craft because professional development isn’t a 3 hour workshop once a month but a lifelong process.

 

“We do not learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience.” -John Dewey

‘Dumping The Losers’: The New School Reform Model

‘Dumping The Losers’: The New School Reform Model | Education | Scoop.it

"Since 2011, the state-run Philadelphia public school district has adopted what is called the “portfolio model” of school reform as its “theory of change.”  The model is a move away from the traditional school district, in which a centralized administration controls a set of public schools, to an arrangement in which a group of different kinds of schools, which could include traditional public as well as charter and privately run schools, are overseen by a central entity. Supporters think it gives parents more choice; opponents think that the choice most parents get is phony and that the portfolio model is a step toward the privatization of public education. Cue last weekend’s American Educational Research Association’s national conference in Philadelphia, where a panel was held on the “Landscape of Ed Reform in Philadelphia.” The panel features a number of speakers, most notably the executive director of the Philadelphia School Partnership which is raising $100 million in venture philanthropy funds to “accelerate the pace” of ed reform in Philadelphia. In the following post, Helen Gym, co-founder of Parents United for Public Education and a frequent writer in local media circles, writes about comments made by the Philadelphia School Partnership that the portfolio model is about 'dumping the losers'." | by Valerie Strauss

This Is Your Brain On Literature

This Is Your Brain On Literature | Education | Scoop.it

"Research shows that reading rich narratives and metaphors activates areas of our brain outside of language, and frequent fiction reading is correlated with empathy. Brain scans are revealing what happens in our heads when we read a detailed description, an evocative metaphor or an emotional exchange between characters. Stories, this research is showing, stimulate the brain and even change how we act in life. The brain, it seems, does not make much of a distinction between reading about an experience and encountering it in real life; in each case, the same neurological regions are stimulated." | by Amir Aczel

This Is Your Brain on Great Literature
TIME

These findings will affirm the experience of readers who have felt illuminated and instructed by a novel, who have found themselves comparing a plucky young woman to Elizabeth Bennet or a tiresome pedant to Edward Casaubon. Reading great literature, it has long been averred, enlarges and improves us as human beings. Brain science shows this claim is truer than we imagined.
