Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The public school systems in the United States are facing a major teacher shortage in the near future due to the fact that teachers are leaving the profession by the thousands each year. It is imperative that this trend is stopped and reversed to ensure that quality teachers remain in schools. The current study employed a causal-comparative design to determine if working conditions in Title I schools versus non-Title I schools were associated with teacher job satisfaction and teacher retention using the North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions (NC TWC) Survey. The qualifications of the selected participants were that they were ...

Using Argument-Based Science Inquiry To Improve Science Achievement For Students With Disabilities In Inclusive Classrooms, Jonte C. Taylor, Ching-Mei Tseng, Angelique Murillo, William Therrien, Brian Hand

Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities have long lagged behind their non-disabled peers when it comes to science achievement. The increased emphasis on STEM related careers and the use of science in everyday life makes learning science content and concepts critical for all students especially for those with disabilities. As suggested by the National Resource Council (2012), more emphasis is being placed on being able to critically think about science concepts in and outside of the classroom. Additionally, the Next Generation Science Standards are asking teachers and students to better understand how science is connected to the everyday world through the use of ...

Lgbtq Students, Tammy R. Johnson, Daniel Weber

Admissions Faculty Research

As with any sub-population of college stu­dents, there is a great deal of variance among individual LGBTQ students in terms of their ex­pectations and desires when it comes to choos­ing or persisting at a particular college. Perhaps the one unifying objective among members of this group is a goal common to almost every student at every level of study: to find an edu­cational environment in which the student will feel valued and supported while pursuing his or her educational goals. To this end, LGBTQ stu­dents have unique needs that historically have gone unaddressed.

Get In Where You Fit In: The Career Paths For White And Black Superintendents, Terrell Melvin Hill

Doctoral Dissertations

Scholars have not added much to the literature with regards to the small numbers of women and people of color in the superintendent’s role, particularly in New England. Even though women make up the overwhelming majority of teachers, somehow White males continue to hold the majority of superintendencies. This study is significant because it brings greatly needed attention to the career paths that superintendents take, and why White males and females are more successful in obtaining superintendencies.

Through personal and confidential interviews, with semi-structured questions, of 12 White and Black, male and female superintendents, data was collected. The themes ...

My dissertation focused on student safety and the adults’ role of identifying, intervening, addressing, and reducing the incidences of bullying and cyberbullying. The first part presents a process that began with adults in a high school district completing a survey to respond to their perceptions of bullying and cyberbullying, who should address it, who is responsible, and who could stop it. The data were used by the district for their climate committee to begin communication between the administrators and deans of the three schools in the district.

Creating A Student-Centered Safety And Bullying Prevention Program: A Change Leadership Pla, Dorothy J. Thompson

Dissertations

ABSTRACT

The change plan focuses on the leaders’ roles and responsibilities and what causes them to be placed in situations that require them to adapt or change. The change can cause them to react, think or perform differently. But, when leaders have to make changes that will impact an entire system, they are forced to work with others to achieve that change. New directives, policies, and procedures have come from the federal, state and local government that impact school staff and students.
