Lhs Virtual School, Arthur Lang

Lakewood High School will accommodate the citizens of Lakewood by providing them with courses for credit and diplomas. Few boys in Lakewood yeshivas receive high school diplomas. While some have minimal amounts of high school credit, others have more and others have none. Girls receive diplomas, but are denied the opportunities given to regular students at our free public school for higher-level senior-year courses such as pre-calculus and government. Lakewood will allow yeshiva children to enroll in its distance education program currently in progress.

Closing the achievement gap has been elusive for most of the Abbott districts in New Jersey. In order to help close the achievement gap in all districts, the NJ Dpartment of Education will be setting up seven field-based Regional Achievement Centers (RACs) that will work with failing schools in 2013.

The State Of Education In Lakewood: Can Students In The Religious Community Access Education?, Arthur Lang May 2011

The State Of Education In Lakewood: Can Students In The Religious Community Access Education?, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

Lakewood, New Jersey is the fastest growing large town in the country. Of the 28,000 children registered in Lakewood schools, 75% attend private schools, saving the state over $300 million. This leaves the burden of education upon Lakewood families, about 34% of which are below the poverty level. Ninety-nine percent of township students in private schools attend yeshivas. Yeshivas for boys generally do not provide a diploma and provide little or no secular education in high school, while schools for girls provide diplomas and a relatively more rigorous curriculum. Recent Supreme Court decisions regarding state funded vouchers, the charter ...

The Result Of Fitzgerald V. Barnstable School Committee On Special Education Law, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

The Individuals with Disabilities Educational Act (IDEA) requires that states receiving federal funds provide a Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE) to students with disabilities. Failing to provide a FAPE is discriminatory under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, the Rehabilitations Act (RA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The IDEA provides remedies to correct inadequacies with compensatory but does not provide compensatory damages. Parents dissatisfied with the adequacy of the education of a child with special needs have tried to bypass this, using ยง1983 to seek damages for an inadequate education under the IDEA and under the ...

Plan For Lakewood High School, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

Lakewood, New Jersey has a population approaching 100,000. It is perhaps the fasting growing and most vibrant city in the United States. Yet, its schools are in decline. No outsider, no professor of education, and no researcher will completely solve the problem. Lakewood is unique. The economic, political, and moral vitality of Lakewood, with its world renown for learning, is not at all focused on the Lakewood School District, but on its independent district, which is growing at a staggering eighteen percent annually. One thousand new homes are built and 2,000 babies are born each year to families ...

Reflections On Educational Administration, Arthur Lang Jun 2007

Reflections On Educational Administration, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

I began my graduate studies in the spring, 2005 and finished in spring, 2007. Over those two and a half years, I have transformed my view of education. I have developed a vision and implemented changes in my own instruction. I learned what educators mean by change and have embraced its benefits. I realized that the school is not an isolated institution, but must seek outside support and enlist all members of the community. Most importantly, I learned that principals are not managers, but instructional leaders who lead by doing.

Construction Trades Academy At Lakewood High School, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

Small Schools are schools within schools, autonomous of their district and the larger school building principal in which they reside. They are distinct from one another, focused and committed to equity. They are made up of an interdisciplinary team of teachers that share a few hundred or less students in common for instruction. Giving students an opportunity to engage in the construction industry in their home-town will integrate real-world skills into their study of mathematics and connect their lives to their schools and community, making achievment and graduation more meaningful.

This study has been undertaken as a project in an Educational Philosophy course. I decided to observe our department chair to learn how I too can properly teach my students to pass the New Jersey mandated High School Proficiency Test (HSPA). The results are a stunning documentation of how education is affected by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
