Tools of the Mind

Tools of the Mind | Crystal River Elementary School | Scoop.it

A growing body of research indicates that many children start school not ready to learn not because they do not know their letters or numbers but because they lack one critical ability: the ability to regulate their social, emotional, and cognitive behaviors. Current research shows that self-regulation – often called executive function -- has a stronger association with academic achievement than IQ or entry-level reading or math skills.

The Federal Role in Education

The Federal Role in Education | Crystal River Elementary School | Scoop.it

Education is primarily a State and local responsibility in the United States. It is States and communities, as well as public and private organizations of all kinds, that establish schools and colleges, develop curricula, and determine requirements for enrollment and graduation. The structure of education finance in America reflects this predominant State and local role. Of an estimated $1.15 trillion being spent nationwide on education at all levels for school year 2011-2012, a substantial majority will come from State, local, and private sources. This is especially true at the elementary and secondary level, where about 87.7 percent of the funds will come from non-Federal sources.

Lobato Case: Colo. Attorney General Appeals Judge's Funding Decision

Lobato Case: Colo. Attorney General Appeals Judge's Funding Decision | Crystal River Elementary School | Scoop.it

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers filed an appeal of Denver District Judge Sheila Rappaport's landmark ruling on school funding in the Lobato v. State of Colorado case, 9News reports

 

Judge Rappaport issued the landmark 186-page ruling in favor of the plaintiffs in the Lobato case, concluding the state's education funding is not "thorough and uniform," and therefore unconstitutional. In her ruling, Rappaport went so far as to say the system is "unconscionable," according to a report by the Denver Post. .
