The Americans With Disabilities Act And Academic Libraries In The Southeastern United States, Linda Lou Wiler, Eleanor Lomax Oct 2000

The Americans With Disabilities Act And Academic Libraries In The Southeastern United States, Linda Lou Wiler, Eleanor Lomax

E-JASL 1999-2009 (volumes 1-10)

Individuals with disabilities are one of the fastest-growing segments of United States society. In 1970, 11.7% of the United States population was limited in activity, a major factor in measuring and identifying people with disabilities. In 1990, because of the aging of America, 13.7 % of the population could be so identified. By 1994, 15% of the population fell into this group. During this latter period, the older population stayed fairly stable but children and younger adults with disabilities increased greatly. Many different figures, depending upon the method of counting, e.g., age groups included, or whether residence was ...

Achieving Educational Adequacy Through School Finance Reform, Andrew Reschovsky, Jennifer Imazeki

CPRE Research Reports

In this report, researchers demonstrate a statistical approach to the measurement of the costs of public education, using data from K-12 school districts in Wisconsin and Texas. They then demonstrate how to integrate information on costs into school aid formulas designed to provide the funding necessary to achieve educational adequacy.


The District Role In Building Capacity: Four Strategies, Diane Massell Sep 2000

The District Role In Building Capacity: Four Strategies, Diane Massell

CPRE Policy Briefs

School districts strongly influence the strategic choices that schools make to improve teaching and learning. Districts—composed of local school boards, superintendents, and central office staff—act as gatekeepers for federal and state policy by translating, interpreting, supporting, or blocking actions on their schools’ behalf. In fact, the efforts of districts to build the capacity of students, teachers, and schools are often the major, and sometimes only, source of external assistance that schools receive. In an effort to revisit the often forgotten role of districts in the improvement process, this policy brief explores the promises and challenges of four major ...

From Research To Practice And Back Again: Timss As A Tool For Educational Improvement, Marlies Dunson Apr 2000

From Research To Practice And Back Again: Timss As A Tool For Educational Improvement, Marlies Dunson

CPRE Policy Briefs

The U.S. Department of Education released data from the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) to serve as a “starting point to examine U.S. education, student achievement, teaching and curricula.” The researchers and administrators of TIMSS hoped that these findings would provoke reflective discussions by providing a different lens through which schools could reevaluate their current practices and education policymakers could benefit from new insights. In the three years following the release of the first set of data, a number of states, districts, and schools have delved deeply into TIMSS for policy development and school improvement, receiving ...

School-Based Performance Award Programs, Teacher Motivation, And School Performance: Findings From A Study Of Three Programs, Carol Kelley, Herbert G. Heneman Iii, Anthony Milanowski Apr 2000

School-Based Performance Award Programs, Teacher Motivation, And School Performance: Findings From A Study Of Three Programs, Carol Kelley, Herbert G. Heneman Iii, Anthony Milanowski

CPRE Research Reports

Building on a strong foundation of research and experience with educational reform across the nation, in the 1990s educational policymakers undertook sophisticated comprehensive educational reform efforts. The centerpiece of these reforms was the creation of state educational standards, assessments, and goals, and the realignment of state and local resources to support the achievement of these goals. A number of states and districts have embraced the idea of performance-based accountability (Fuhrman, 1999), in which rewards and sometimes sanctions are used as incentives for measurable improvement in student achievement. Some jurisdictions have modified their teacher compensation systems in order to provide incentives ...

"Last May at the finals of the National Geographic Bee held in Washington, DC, Alex Trebeck was getting concerned because he thought that he would be running out of questions for the ten finalists who came from throughout the country. Well, he did have enough, although it was close.

In the previous year it took just 80 questions to determine a winner of the Bee, an annual event sponsored by the National Geographic Society in which over five million kids nationwide from grades four through eight compete. In 1999, however, it took 140 questions before a winner was determined. In ...

The Motivational Effects Of School-Based Performance Awards, Caroline Kelley, Allan Odden, Anthony Milanowski, Herbert G. Heneman Iii Feb 2000

The Motivational Effects Of School-Based Performance Awards, Caroline Kelley, Allan Odden, Anthony Milanowski, Herbert G. Heneman Iii

CPRE Policy Briefs

From 1995-1998, CPRE teacher compensation researchers conducted extensive interviews and survey questionnaires of teachers and principals in three sites to measure the motivational effects of school-based performance award (SBPA) programs. When a school met preset educational objectives, usually related to increases in student achievement, the SBPA programs in Charlotte-Mecklenburg (North Carolina) and Kentucky provided salary bonuses to all the teachers in the school and the SBPA program in Maryland provided a monetary award to the school for school improvements.

CPRE researchers found that the SBPA programs in two of the three sites helped teachers focus on student performance goals. However ...

America's Choice Comprehensive School Reform Design: First-Year Implementation Evaluation Summary, Thomas B. Corcoran, Margaret Hoppe, Theresa Luhm, Jonathan A. Supovitz

CPRE Research Reports

In the fall of 1998, the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE) contracted with the Consortium for Policy Research in Education (CPRE) to conduct the evaluation of the America’s Choice School Design. This is a summary of CPRE’s first report of a three-year evaluation of the design. The evaluation of America’s Choice seeks to answer four basic questions: Are schools successfully implementing the America’s Choice program design? What environmental characteristics are facilitating or impeding implementation? How effective is America Choice’s implementation strategy? And what are the impacts of the program on teachers and ...

Indoctrination And Assimilation In Plural Settings, Ken Badley Jan 2000

Indoctrination And Assimilation In Plural Settings, Ken Badley

Faculty Publications - School of Education

"A twofold problem faces Canadian education. The first fold involves the indoctrination debate, still unsettled after several decades, yet still bearing decisively on educational policy. The second fold involves the changing Canadian educational landscape, now obviously characterized by increasing cultural, religious, and linguistic plurality. This plurality manifests itself in tribalism and in regular conflicts about normativity in the public square. In the midst of this plurality, many Canadian parents of school-aged children believe that courts, provincial governments, and educational authorities deny them educational justice by determining that their own religion cannot inform what their children learn in schools. Yet, from ...


Private Interests Or Public Goods?: Dewey, Rugg, And Their Contemporary Allies On Corporate Involvement In Educational Reform Initiatives, Deron R. Boyles, Kathleen Knight Abowitz Jan 2000

Private Interests Or Public Goods?: Dewey, Rugg, And Their Contemporary Allies On Corporate Involvement In Educational Reform Initiatives, Deron R. Boyles, Kathleen Knight Abowitz

Educational Policy Studies Faculty Publications

In some ways, John Dewey lived through a time similar to what we now experience: the rise of corporate power in a historical moment of unsurpassed national wealth and consumer materialism, and the accompanying substantial influence of business interests in the structure, politics, and agendas of public school systems. Dewey’s writings in the first three decades of this century mark a kind of “wisdom of the elders,” offered by a public intellectual who experienced, at least in some form, the kind of tumultuous relationships we are currently witnessing between the economy and education.
