Outsiders/Within And In/Outsiders: Varieties Of Multiculturalism, Mary F. Rogers, Kathy McKibben Hoover 2010 University of West Florida

Outsiders/Within And In/Outsiders: Varieties Of Multiculturalism, Mary F. Rogers, Kathy Mckibben Hoover

Journal of Educational Controversy

In this paper we look at outsiders/within, a pivotal concept in not only women’s studies, but also in racial/ethnic studies and the social sciences, especially sociology. After showing how problematic this modernist notion tends to be, we theoretically complicate it. Thereafter, we show how once theoretically embellished, some version of this concept offers a foundation for a postmodernist multiculturalism that is necessarily and inclusively feminist.


High Stakes Motherhood And School Choice, Amy B. Shuffelton 2010 University of Wisconsin, Whitewater

High Stakes Motherhood And School Choice, Amy B. Shuffelton

Journal of Educational Controversy

Because it does not conform to the standard conception of a profession, motherhood might seem to have no place in this issue. A woman requires no special expertise, no knowledge, skill or educational degree to become a mother. Furthermore, the work she does as a mother is unpaid, sometimes even unrecognized as work. These two features of motherhood – its accessibility to any fertile girl or woman, and the fact that society provides no financial compensation to mothers for their hard work--are often lamented, though towards very different political ends. In fact, motherhood might be considered the very opposite of a ...


Ethical Breach And The Schizophrenic Process: Theorizing The Judge And The Teacher, Heather Greenhalgh-Spencer, Bryce Bartlett 2010 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Ethical Breach And The Schizophrenic Process: Theorizing The Judge And The Teacher, Heather Greenhalgh-Spencer, Bryce Bartlett

Journal of Educational Controversy

As the title of this piece suggests, we theorize some of the similarities and differences between the judging and teaching profession. At first glance, the differences seem more apparent than any similarities. As we've discussed this text with colleagues and friends, overwhelmingly, the first question asked is: A judge and teacher, what do they have in common? However, we believe that the judge and teacher are uniquely positioned as fraternal partners across the labor/cultural landscape; we see more similarities than differences.

Bully Victim Identification And Intervention Program For School Nurses, Nora Zinan 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Bully Victim Identification And Intervention Program For School Nurses, Nora Zinan

Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Projects

School nurses see bullies and their victims as visitors to the health office with physical and emotional symptoms. Yet school nurses feel unprepared and unqualified to deal with bullying issues. They are not included as team members in the whole school approach to bullying prevention. METHOD: Eleven school nurses from Greenfield, Northampton and the Union #38 School district participated in The Bully Victim Identification and Intervention Program for School Nurses. Participants completed the Perceptions of Bullying Questionnaire (Hendershot, Dake, Price & Larty, 2006) prior to the training, immediately following the training and 1 month after the training. RESULT: All of the ...


Holistic Religious Education: Toward A More Transparent Pathway From Philosophy To Practice, Lanelle Cobbin 2010 Avondale College

Holistic Religious Education: Toward A More Transparent Pathway From Philosophy To Practice, Lanelle Cobbin

Theses Masters Coursework

The challenge to match philosophy with practice is an age-old concern. For Seventh-day Adventist Education, the challenge is no different. Within this context rests religious education. In this more specific realm, this challenge has been impeded in a number of different ways. Two are relevant to this study. The Adventist religious education classroom could well be considered a nexus for the purposes of Adventist educational philosophy. It holds much potential for holistic, authentic faith formation. There is evidence to suggest however, that in recent years, instruction in religious education within the context of Adventist Education has been somewhat paralysed by ...

Summary Of Findings Health Status Of Children Entering Kindergarten: Results Of The 2009-2010 (Year Two) Nevada Kindergarten Health Survey, Nevada Institute For Children's Research And Policy Reports

Nevada Institute for Children's Research and Policy Reports

Academic achievement for children is vital to their success in life. Those that do well in school have greater opportunities for post-secondary education, and later have better prospects for employment. One of the major factors that can affect a child’s academic achievement is his or her health status. Academic outcomes and health conditions are consistently linked in the literature (Taras & Potts-Datema, 2005). Children with poor health status, and especially those with common chronic health conditions, have increased numbers of school absences and more academic deficiencies (Taras & Potts-Datema, 2005). In a study concerning excused versus unexcused absences, children with greater ...
