Productivity Research, The U.S. Department Of Education, And High-Quality Evidence, Kevin G. Welner, Bruce D. Baker Dec 2011

Productivity Research, The U.S. Department Of Education, And High-Quality Evidence, Kevin G. Welner, Bruce D. Baker

National Education Policy Center

America’s leaders have frequently invoked the principle that important policy decisions should be evidence-based. This rhetorical embrace, however, has not always prevailed against the appeal of policy ideas with political resonance or other perceived advantages. The following analysis describes a particularly egregious example of this phenomenon: the approach taken by the U.S. Department of Education in its “Increasing Educational Productivity” project. This example illustrates the harm done when leaders fail to ground policy in high-quality research.

The Department of Education has set forth a series of documents explaining how public school districts can stretch their dwindling dollars by ...

Connecting Rather Than Colliding: When American And Chinese Rhetorical Styles Meet In The University Classroom, Karen Shea Dec 2011

Connecting Rather Than Colliding: When American And Chinese Rhetorical Styles Meet In The University Classroom, Karen Shea

English as a Second Language Faculty Publications & Research

Many American teachers can see differences between the way their domestic and international students organize an argument; fewer would be able to explain these differences. Due to the recent wave of Chinese students enrolling in American universities, many professors are grappling with cultural differences ranging from the unfamiliar classroom behavior to the diverse rhetorical styles of these students. Misunderstandings may form a rift between the students, who write according to their own Eastern rhetorical upbringing, and the professors, who assign and assess the writing based on their Western rhetorical tradition. As a result, many professors are looking for ways to ...

Quality In Context—How Directors' Beliefs, Leadership, And Management Practices Relate To Observed Classroom Quality, Mccormick Center For Early Childhood Leadership Dec 2011

Quality In Context—How Directors' Beliefs, Leadership, And Management Practices Relate To Observed Classroom Quality, Mccormick Center For Early Childhood Leadership

McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership Publications

Children's experiences in early childhood programs can impact their developmental outcomes. While some high-quality programs promote children's success in school and life, the majority of child care programs are of minimal to adequate quality. A recent study conducted by researchers at the Urban Institute explored the seemingly simple uestion, why is there so much variation in program quality? The study focused on center directors—their beliefs and decisions, and the contexts within which they work. The goal was to identify what promotes quality in some centers and what hinders quality in others.
