The Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning

Morris Berman tells the story of his maternal grandfather, who, when he was five years old in 1883 or 1884, was sent to a Jewish elementary school in Belorussia. On the first day of class, the teacher startled the young boy by taking each child's slate and smearing the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet—aleph and beys—on it in honey. His grandfather's first lesson consisted of eating the letters off the slate. The symbolism of this act is complex, Berman muses, but central to the ritual is the belief that what is real must be ...

More Guns, More Crime, Mark Duggan Oct 2001

More Guns, More Crime, Mark Duggan

Health Care Management Papers

This paper examines the relationship between gun ownership and crime. Previous research has suffered from a lack of reliable data on gun ownership. I exploit a unique data set to reliably estimate annual rates of gun ownership at both the state and the county levels during the past two decades. My findings demonstrate that changes in gun ownership are significantly positively related to changes in the homicide rate, with this relationship driven almost entirely by an impact of gun ownership on murders in which a gun is used. The effect of gun ownership on all other crime categories is much ...

Lesbian, Gay, And Bisexual Students' Perceptions Of Resident Assistants: Implications For Resident Assistant Selection And Training, Nancy J. Evans, Robert D. Reason, Ellen M. Broido Oct 2001

Lesbian, Gay, And Bisexual Students' Perceptions Of Resident Assistants: Implications For Resident Assistant Selection And Training, Nancy J. Evans, Robert D. Reason, Ellen M. Broido

Education Publications

Through the use of in-depth interviews, the perceptions of Resident Assistants (RAs) held by 20 lesbian, gay, and bisexual students were explored. Students were asked about their experiences with and expectations of RAs. They were also questioned about their ideas concerning RA training. Students expected RAs to be open and accepting, personally supportive, and to create accepting climates. RAs who identified themselves as lesbian, gay, or bisexual were valued as confidants and network builders, and contributed in a positive way to students' favorable impressions of the residence life department.

Teacher Turnover And Teacher Shortages: An Organizational Analysis, Richard Ingersoll Sep 2001

Teacher Turnover And Teacher Shortages: An Organizational Analysis, Richard Ingersoll

GSE Publications

Contemporary educational theory holds that one of the pivotal causes of inadequate school performance is the inability of schools to adequately staff classrooms with qualified teachers. This theory also holds that these school staffing problems are primarily due to shortages of teachers, which, in turn, are primarily due to recent increases in teacher retirements and student enrollments. This analysis investigates the possibility that there are other factors - those tied to the organizational characteristics and conditions of schools - that are driving teacher turnover and, in turn, school staffing problems. The data utilized in this investigation are from the Schools and Staffing ...

Workers’ Compensation Rate Regulation: How Price Controls Increase Costs*, Patricia. M. Danzon, Scott. E. Harrington Apr 2001

Workers’ Compensation Rate Regulation: How Price Controls Increase Costs*, Patricia. M. Danzon, Scott. E. Harrington

Health Care Management Papers

In the 1980s, regulation constrained workers’ compensation insurance premiums in the face of rapid growth in loss costs. We develop and test the hypothesis that rate suppression exacerbates loss growth, leading to higher losses and premiums. The empirical analysis using rating class data for eight states for the period 1985–91 confirms that rate suppression, measured by lagged residual‐market share of payroll, increased loss growth. The cost‐increasing effects are greater in the residual market than in the voluntary market, but premiums increased more rapidly in the voluntary market. The resulting pattern of cross subsidies between and within classes ...

Aboriginal Students In Canada, Deborah A. Lee Jan 2001

Aboriginal Students In Canada, Deborah A. Lee

Aboriginal Policy Research Consortium International (APRCi)

This study involved the use of personal interviews of six Aboriginal students at the University of Alberta in the fall of 1999. This article includes a brief literature review of other articles that consider adult Aboriginal people as library patrons and a section on Indigenous knowledge and values. Findings include three main concerns: a lack of Indigenous resources in the library system; a lack of resource or research development concerning Indigenous issues; and a lack of services recognizing the Indigenous values of “being in relationship” and reciprocity.


An Approach To Family Literacy In The Highlands Of Bolivia: An Ongoing Experience With Aymara Families, Jenny Perez-Genge Jan 2001

An Approach To Family Literacy In The Highlands Of Bolivia: An Ongoing Experience With Aymara Families, Jenny Perez-Genge

Master's Capstone Projects

The people of the altiplano (Andean highland plateau at around 13,000 feet above sea level) are the epitome of physical strength, ancient wisdom, and tenacity of character. They are the Aymara and Quechua people, descendants of the Inca and Tiahuanacota cultures; they live in one of the highest permanently inhabited areas on earth and have blossomed from their ancient heritage. Although the imminent impact of western and contemporary influences are at their doorstep, both the Aymaras and Quechuas struggle patiently to strengthen their cultural traditions. Aymara family traditions revolve around the chacra, the main agricultural unit for survival on ...


Language Policy In Central Asia, Baktygul M. Ismailova Jan 2001

Language Policy In Central Asia, Baktygul M. Ismailova

Master's Capstone Projects

This study addresses language policy and language planning in the five Central Asian republics, former constituents of the Soviet Union. Language issues became crucial after the breakdown of the Soviet system, which completely changed the linguistic environment in the region. The study discusses two main issues related to the language planning in central Asia. The first section of the project describes the history of the region before 1917, when lifestyle patterns divided Central Asian residents into two groups, nomads (Kyrgyz, Kazak and Turkmen) and sedentary peoples (Tajik and Uzbek).

After a brief discussion of schooling practices in pre-Soviet Central Asia ...

Implementing And Evaluating Silverscreener: A Marketing Management Support System For Movie Exhibitors, Jehoshua Eliashberg, Sanjeev Swami, Charles B. Weinberg, Berend Wierenga

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

Every Monday morning, Pathé Theaters in the Netherlands decides which movies in its cinemas to retain and which to replace. It must choose replacement movies from those available at that time. We implemented the SilverScreener model, a mathematical-programming system [Swami, Eliashberg, and Weinberg 1999] to help Pathe ́ managers make those decisions for one six-screen theater and tested its performance against the performance of two unaided similar multiscreen cinemas. Using Pathe ́’s historica ldata, manageria ljudgment, and theater-specific factors, we developed an attendance-forecasting system. While a fully controlled experiment was not possible, the revenues at the theater using the SilverScreener recommendations ...

Well Begun Is Half Done: Preparing For The Start Of A New Class, Stephanie C. Downey Jan 2001

Well Begun Is Half Done: Preparing For The Start Of A New Class, Stephanie C. Downey

MA TESOL Collection

This paper explores the critical learning moment that occurs on the first day in a new language class as the individual students, group and teacher interact for the first time. It states that the first day can influence the entire direction a course takes and asserts that the learner, the group, the teacher and the cultural context are key variables that determine how the first day turns out. It argues that by being aware of the impact each of these variables has on learning, the teacher can direct the emotional, mental and social energy of the group positively and create ...
