Construction Trades Academy At Lakewood High School, Arthur Lang Nov 2006

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.

Assessment Of Capital Returns And Economics Of Investment In Khartoum Stock Exchange Market, Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed Aug 2006

Assessment Of Capital Returns And Economics Of Investment In Khartoum Stock Exchange Market, Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

Financial markets in a country are parts of modern economic systems and have definite impacts of its economic performance. However, in an underdeveloped economic structure there can be other targets o hidden activities for them. Such assumptions are provoked under totalitarian economic systems that impose cartel monopolies in a autocratic compradorism that own most of the companies and their stocks. The institutional structure of the prevailing economic system avails negative cost/benefits dealings to continue unaffected as the main profits have to come from other resources, e.g., money laundry. The private sector has to be monopolized in order to ...


Slowly Enabling The Disabled, Marion Lloyd Aug 2006

Slowly Enabling The Disabled, Marion Lloyd

Marion Lloyd

Access to higher education for disabled students is far from a right in Latin America, although some countries, particularly Brazil, are making an effort to improve access and conditions for the disabled. Discrimination starts early, at the elementary-school level. Students are either isolated in special schools, which rarely go beyond the eighth grade, or forced to compete in regular schools, without any tools to help them overcome their disabilities. A majority drop out before high school.

Valerie Lucus-McEwen CEM CBCP

The Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP) is a non profit organization developed to accredit government emergency management programs in the 56 U.S. states and territories. This accreditation model is based on the NFPA 1600 Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs. In 2003, the Federal Emergency Management Agency funded EMAP to conduct baseline assessments of each U.S. state and territory to assess their emergency management capabilities. Between January 2003 and December 2004, EMAP conducted baseline assessments of 35 U.S. state and territory emergency management programs. This study was designed to analyze the results of those ...

Las Tutorías Y El Trabajo Académico: Complementariedad Y Tensiones, Jesús F. Galaz-Fontes Apr 2006

Las Tutorías Y El Trabajo Académico: Complementariedad Y Tensiones, Jesús F. Galaz-Fontes

Jesús Francisco Galaz Fontes

El trabajo explora, en el contexto de los cambios recientes en la educación terciaria Mexicana, y a partir de los conceptos de servicios estudiantiles y trabajo académico, las relaciones entre éste y las actividades de tutoría impulsados desde instancias como la ANUIES y las propias instituciones de educación terciaria. Se propone el concepto de servicios estudiantiles como incluyente de la noción de tutoría y, al mismo tiempo, se plantea que los servicios estudiantiles pueden verse tanto desde una perspectiva formativa como compensatoria. Se argumenta que la relación entre las actividades de tutoría y el trabajo académico no es, automáticamente, una ...


Teaching To The Test In A Minority District, Arthur Lang Apr 2006

Teaching To The Test In A Minority District, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

The No Child Left Behind Act [NCLB] mandates testing of all high school students in reading and mathematics by school year 2005-06 and in science by school year 2007-08. Schools are required to make incremental increases in test scores in all students, including minority students, poor children, students with disabilities, and English language learners, setting one hundred percent proficiency as its goal by 2014. Schools that do not make progress in test scores will be subject to punitive and remedial actions.

Knowledge And Education In Islam, Syed Farid Alatas Jan 2006

Knowledge And Education In Islam, Syed Farid Alatas

farid alatas

Madrasah education in Singapore has raised a number of issues and concerns, chief of which relate to the quality of such education and the impact that this education has on social cohesion. Because madrasah education presents itself as Islamic education, it is necessary to clarify what is meant by Islamic education in order to establish the criteria according to which madrasah education in Singapore may be assessed. This requires a brief introduction to the philosophy of education in Islam and an understanding of the various institutions of learning in Islamic history that were founded on such a philosophy of education ...


From Jami'ah To University Multiculturalism And Christian-Muslim Dialogue, Syed Farid Alatas Jan 2006

From Jami'ah To University Multiculturalism And Christian-Muslim Dialogue, Syed Farid Alatas

farid alatas

Sociology has a role to play in the development of multiculturalism and, therefore, the facilitation of interreligious dialogue. Multiculturalism does not merely refer to the coexistence of a plurality of cultures but is a social context that encourages the possibilities for harmonious interactions of different cultures. Soci- ology may contribute in meaningful ways to multiculturalism by the thematic development of a number of areas concerning the study of societies and civiliza- tions. This article focuses on three such themes, that is: the multicultural origins of modem civilization, intercivilizational encounters and the point of view of the other. The author argues ...


Islam And The Science Of Economics, Syed Farid Alatas Jan 2006

Islam And The Science Of Economics, Syed Farid Alatas

farid alatas

Economists have generally maintained a rigorous separation between positive and normative economics. In the Muslim world, however, concerted attempts have been made to relate moral conduct to economic institutions and practices. Demands for an alternative theory and practice of development to both modernization and Marxist theories had led to the rise of Islamic economics. But while Islamic economic thinking presents an ideal of development that is based on an Islamic philosophy of life, it is beset by a number of problems which make it difficult to be considered as an alternative to modernist discourse as far as empirical theory is ...

Self Reports Of First And Second Language Ability By Academically Inclined And Challenged Students, Arshad Abd Samad Jan 2006

Self Reports Of First And Second Language Ability By Academically Inclined And Challenged Students, Arshad Abd Samad

Arshad Abd Samad

Becoming proficient in a second language may involve several factors that are different from those involved in the first language. One factor that may influence performance in either language is academic aptitude. In this study, responses to statements regarding language abilities in Bahasa Malaysia and English by academically inclined and challenged students were analysed using the Chi-Square technique. The results indicate that while the academically inclined students do not have major difficulties in performance in either of the two languages, the academically challenged students report problems in basic linguistic abilities in the English language but not in Bahasa Malaysia. Several ...


The Evolution Of Education Has Not Been Televised: Educational Inequalities And The Impact Of Change, Andree Robinson-Neal Jan 2006

The Evolution Of Education Has Not Been Televised: Educational Inequalities And The Impact Of Change, Andree Robinson-Neal

Andree Robinson-Neal

The historical evolution of education and impact of its inequalities have not been televised. The world is more often exposed to “overcomology” —society’s assertion that oppressed peoples or so-called minorities have overcome past injustices and are now able to access the same educational opportunities as so-called majority groups. This paper provides a Gil Scott-Heron-esque review of the effects of inequalities on this key social institution.

Who Is Eligible Under The Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act?, Robert A. Garda Jr. Jan 2006

Who Is Eligible Under The Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act?, Robert A. Garda Jr.

Robert A. Garda

Determining who is eligible under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) has plagued decision-makers for over three decades, leading to both over- and under-identification of eligible children and the disproportionate identification of minority students as disabled. The statutory requirements for finding a child IDEA-eligible appear straightforward: a child must have an enumerated disability that adversely affects educational performance and by reason thereof the child must need special education. Application of these provisions has proven problematic, however, and the authorities are divided as to what constitutes “educational performance,” when is it “adversely affected” by the disability, under what circumstances ...
