Selection Process For Educational Leaders Does Make A Difference, Virginia Leiker, Theresa M. Campos 2018 University of St. Thomas

Selection Process For Educational Leaders Does Make A Difference, Virginia Leiker, Theresa M. Campos

School Leadership Review

Traditional principal preparation programs, those bound by a university degree, are sometimes viewed as theory-based and have little to do with the real world in which school leaders work. Even the licensing exam in some states, such as in Texas, asks the candidates to view each scenario as the ideal situation when selecting responses. Traditional preparation programs frequently meet the standards for national accreditation that indicates that the curriculum and assessments in these programs are subjected to rigorous scrutiny for quality control. The question remains, what should universities do to improve their programs or change the perception that the graduates ...

Improving School Leadership: The Connection Of Transformational Leadership And Psychological Well-Being Of The Followers, Pamela Bryant, Jennifer T. Butcher, Johnny O'Connor

School Leadership Review

In this current era of public school accountability in the United States, the passage of No Child Left Behind resulted in dramatic changes for public school districts (U.S. Department of Education, 2001). Although the recent reauthorization, entitled Every Student Succeeds Act, allowed greater flexibility on the state and local levels, effective school leadership still remained a critical factor when establishing and maintaining high standards of student learning (Executive Office of the President, 2015). Onorato (2013) noted the federal and state accountability mandates have forced public school administrators to transform the educational environment while serving as instructional leaders for teachers ...

Who Is Preparing School Leaders To Transition Into The Job Of Urban School Principal? Analyzing The Impact Of A Regional Principal Readiness Education Program On Principal Self-Efficacy, W. Sean Kearney, Nathern Okilwa, Jeff Goldhorn 2018 Texas A&M University, San Antonio

Who Is Preparing School Leaders To Transition Into The Job Of Urban School Principal? Analyzing The Impact Of A Regional Principal Readiness Education Program On Principal Self-Efficacy, W. Sean Kearney, Nathern Okilwa, Jeff Goldhorn

School Leadership Review

Preparing junior administrators to step into the role of school principal is a challenge many urban school districts face. Typically a large school district will leverage an existing pool of experienced assistant principals and vice principals to fill principal positions. At a minimum this ensures the candidates are familiar with internal structures, district culture, policies and procedures, and the community which the school district serves. However, unless addressed in a strategic manner, the assistant and vice principal role lacks many of the critical components which are required of the principal position. While the majority of these individuals will have completed ...


I'M Telling: A Quantitative Analysis Of Reporting Cyberbullying Versus Reporting Of Traditional Bullying In A School Setting, Amy Burkman 2018 Texas A&M Texarkana

I'M Telling: A Quantitative Analysis Of Reporting Cyberbullying Versus Reporting Of Traditional Bullying In A School Setting, Amy Burkman

School Leadership Review

Bullying is a widely used, familiar term for aggressive behavior traditionally perceived as a customary rite of passage, particularly during a child's early middle school and high school years (Lusk, 2012). The old adage, kids will be kids, is a common misperception based on lack of knowledge about the impact of bullying exhibited by parents, educators, and community members. Bullying in all forms has become a larger issue for law enforcement, educators, and society as a whole. An increasingly growing phenomenon, cyberbullying, has become a new form of this aggressive behavior in society. Bullies have essentially moved beyond the ...


Legal, Moral, And Transformational Leadership For Our School Districts And Universities, Pauline M. Sampson, Kerry L. Roberts 2018 Stephen F. Austin State University

Legal, Moral, And Transformational Leadership For Our School Districts And Universities, Pauline M. Sampson, Kerry L. Roberts

School Leadership Review

This current issue of the School Leadership Review has a wide variety of topics addressing the legal, moral, and transformational leadership for our school district administrators and university personnel. The legal issues of bullying and transportation liability are important to the safety and welfare of our students and staff. As administrators develop policies and procedures, there needs to be careful consideration to legal and moral implications that will guide their district. These many legal issues would be minimal if the leaders led with honesty and integrity. Transformational leadership has this honesty and integrity woven throughout its tenets.

Teaching Differential Equations Without Computer Graphics Solutions Is A Crime, Beverly H. West 2018 Cornell University, Retired

Teaching Differential Equations Without Computer Graphics Solutions Is A Crime, Beverly H. West

CODEE Journal

In the early 1980s computer graphics revolutionized the teaching of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Yet the movement to teach and learn the qualitative methods that interactive graphics affords seems to have lost momentum. There still exist college courses, even at big universities, being taught without the immense power that computer graphics has brought to differential equations. The vast majority of ODEs that arise in mathematical models are nonlinear, and linearization only approximates solutions sufficiently near an equilibrium. Introductory courses need to include nonlinear DEs. Graphs of phase plane trajectories and time series solutions allow one to see and analyze the ...

The Impact Of Race And Identity On College Student’S Mental Health And Academic Self-Concept: Understanding The Interrelationship Between Ethnic Identity And Perceived Racial Discrimination, Thiffany Rambana 2018 Southern Adventist Univeristy

The Impact Of Race And Identity On College Student’S Mental Health And Academic Self-Concept: Understanding The Interrelationship Between Ethnic Identity And Perceived Racial Discrimination, Thiffany Rambana

Journal of Interdisciplinary Graduate Research

Despite the detailed history of racism in the United States and the centuries that have passed since slavery and the genocide of native communities, many ethnic populations continue to suffer the impact of racism. As racism persists in the modern era of American life, one must wonder how emerging adults are dealing with racism; especially college students. Therefore, it is important to describe the role played by racial discrimination, especially in the way individuals interact with those who are similar or different from them. The purpose of this study was to compare the perceptions of racial discrimination among all ethnic ...

The Little Scroll Of Revelation 10: Prophecy Or Excuse?, Nelson Mercado

Journal of Interdisciplinary Graduate Research

Most Seventh-day Adventist Christians are familiar with the “Great Disappointment” and its meaning. Some Adventists see it as part of their history, one they can be proud about. Other Adventists are not well versed with their history. Still others may feel embarrassed because the origin of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is based on a mistake made by William Miller. There are many Evangelical Christians who criticize Seventh-day Adventists because of their apparent dubious origin or believe that the “Great Disappointment” and its connection to the “Investigative Judgment” was simply an excuse to save face because Jesus did not return on ...

Sex Trafficking: A Toolbox For Apn's, Nissa Berbawy

Journal of Interdisciplinary Graduate Research

As the fastest growing crime in the world (Walker-Rodriguez, & Hill, 2011) and with sex slaves found in all 50 states (Grace et al, 2014), finding a solution to the problem of sex slavery is critical. One study showed 63.3% of sex slave survivors were treated in the emergency department while enslaved, revealing an opportunity for healthcare providers to intervene (The Emergency Nurses Association, 2015). This review of literature focused on the human trafficking subcategory of sexual exploitation (sex slaves). The purpose of this review of literature is to provide evidence based resources to better equip APN’s to identify ...
