Being True To What We Profess: Management Education And Inquiry - A Black British Perspective, Gloria Gordon Phd

Gloria Gordon PhD

The term ‘towards bicultural competence’ in the title of my doctoral thesis: Towards Bicultural Competence: Researching for Personal and Professional Transformations refers to my desire to become competent in negotiating the two cultures (British and African Caribbean) of my dual heritage. The lack of competence which is implied in the title has been a major problem in my personal and professional life and was therefore an important insight thrown up by my research efforts.


The Political Legacy Of School Accountability Systems, Sherman Dorn Jan 1998

The Political Legacy Of School Accountability Systems, Sherman Dorn

Sherman Dorn

The recent battle reported from Washington about proposed national testing program does not tell the most important political story about high stakes tests. Politically popular school accountability systems in many states already revolve around statistical results of testing with high-stakes environments. The future of high stakes tests thus does not depend on what happens on Capitol Hill. Rather, the existence of tests depends largely on the political culture of published test results. Most critics of high-stakes testing do not talk about that culture, however. They typically focus on the practice legacy of testing, the ways in which testing creates perverse ...

Educación E Integración Regional, El Caso Mercosur, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

Los procesos de integración regional en América Latina y el Caribe ha sido reactivados con brío en el curso de la presente década; su resurgimiento tiene lugar en un nuevo escenario, en el que la globalización de los mercados, y consecuentemente de los flujos comerciales y financieros, marca pauta en el devenir económico de las naciones. Lo mismo en América del Norte, que en el Caribe, América Central, el área andina y el Cono Sur, se define una tendencia hacia la conformación de áreas de integración subregionales. Es notable además que los convenios de "nueva generación" establezcan objetivos de cooperación ...

Towards A Redefinition Of The Role Of The Court Interpreter, Holly Mikkelson Jan 1998

Towards A Redefinition Of The Role Of The Court Interpreter, Holly Mikkelson

Holly Mikkelson

Various federal and state statutes in the United States define the role of the court interpreter with clear and unequivocal rules. This definition is based on the underlying principles of the U.S. legal system, which is derived from the Anglo-Saxon common-law tradition. Consequently, the distinctive features of that system, including the jury trial and the concept of adversarial proceedings, make the function of the court interpreter quite different from that of his/her counterparts in other countries. In recent years, the judiciary has made an effort to enhance the public's access to the justice system, but at the ...
