Federalizing Public Education, Thomas Kleven 2009 Thurgood Marshall School of Law

Federalizing Public Education, Thomas Kleven

Thomas Kleven

This article assesses the case for federalizing public education in the United States. The starting point is a conception of democracy I call equitable sharing, meaning that the goods of social life must be equitably distributed among all society’s members. I argue that equitable sharing mandates society to ensure that all children have access to a relatively equal educational opportunity—i.e., a comparable opportunity to advance educationally as far as their abilities, interests and willingness to strive allow—at least through elementary and secondary school. To set the stage for discussing the merits of federalization, I examine various ...

Rights Of Student Teachers And The Law., Zorka Karanxha, Perry Zirkel 2009 University of South Florida

Rights Of Student Teachers And The Law., Zorka Karanxha, Perry Zirkel

Zorka Karanxha

Student teaching is a high-stakes enterprise, representing the culmination of a student’s teacher preparation program and, for the university-approval route, the prerequisite to teacher certification. Legislation in each of the 50 states provides institutions of higher education with express or implied authority for this purpose. On occasion, the representatives of the sponsoring institution of higher education or the cooperating school district make a decision that deprives college of education students of commencing or completing student teaching, thereby leading to law suits.


A Study Of Group Dynamics In Educational Leadership Cohort And Non-Cohort Groups., Zorka Karanxha, Bobbie Greenlee 2009 University of South Florida

A Study Of Group Dynamics In Educational Leadership Cohort And Non-Cohort Groups., Zorka Karanxha, Bobbie Greenlee

Zorka Karanxha

The purpose of this study was to examine group dynamics of educational leadership students in cohorts and make comparisons with the group dynamics characteristics of non-cohort students. Cohorts have emerged as dynamic and adaptive entities with attendant group dynamic processes that shape collective learning and action. Cohort (n=42) and non-cohort (n=51) students were surveyed on group variables of participation, communication, influence, trust, cohesiveness, empowerment, collaboration, and satisfaction. Descriptive statistics and effect size analyses were used for data analysis. Significant differences were identified in trust, cohesiveness, and satisfaction. However, findings show little effect on cohort structures in the areas ...

The Persistence Of Low Expectations In Special Education Law Viewed Through The Lens Of Therapeutic Jurisprduence, Richard Peterson 2009 Pepperdine University

The Persistence Of Low Expectations In Special Education Law Viewed Through The Lens Of Therapeutic Jurisprduence, Richard Peterson

Richard Peterson

For more than thirty-five years a paradigm of low expectations has infected efforts to educate children with disabilities and has been a persistent and stubborn obstacle to the successful implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and its predecessor, the Education of All Handicapped Children Act (EAHCA). This dilemma raises questions addressed in this paper: What is meant by low expectations in the context of Special Education Law? What are the root causes of this phenomenon, and what makes it so resistant to change? How does it impede implementation of the IDEA? And lastly, in what ways does ...

Let’S “Transform” The Colts The Way We Do Public Schools: Phase 1, Jeff Abbott

Jeff Abbott

This article, done tongue-in-cheek, uses sarcasm to parallel the need to reform public education with the need to reform the Indianapolis Colts.

Teaching Without Infringement: A New Model For Educational Fair Use, David Simon 2009 Chicago-Kent College of Law

Teaching Without Infringement: A New Model For Educational Fair Use, David Simon

David Simon

Although fair use is an intentionally vague doctrine, its application to education has been described as only one of two categories where outcomes remain “quite difficult to predict.” To combat this uncertainty, courts have looked to negotiated Educational Guidelines, which Congress included in its House of Representatives Report accompanying the Copyright Act of 1976. While their judicial hearts were in the right place, the courts deciding these cases left their legal skills at home. Their choice to use the Guidelines had two unintended and destructive consequences. First, it erroneously gave the Guidelines the appearance of law under § 107’s fair-use ...


Valor E Direito: As Contribuições De Max Scheler E Miguel Reale, Sérgio Ricardo Aquino 2009 Instituto de Ensino Superior da Grande Florianópolis

Valor E Direito: As Contribuições De Max Scheler E Miguel Reale, Sérgio Ricardo Aquino

Sérgio Ricardo Fernandes de Aquino

The category Value constitutes, under the angle of the Philosophy, one of the beddings to be reviewed as source of construction of the concept of Right. Most of the time, this category, while cultural manifestation, privileges useful values in detriment to the vital ones, becoming far from its purpose to promote social organization. The thought of Scheler was chosen to study the category value for its reflections represent a true direction for the constitution of a legitimate Society. For the Right category, one chose the ideas of Reale, because, when reflected for the historical and valued direction, it corresponds to ...


Section 4 Of The Hindu Succession Act Of 1956, Hari Priya 2009 NALSAR University of Law

Section 4 Of The Hindu Succession Act Of 1956, Hari Priya

Hari Priya

A brief write up in the form of a comprehensive article aiming to critically evaluate the Section 4 of the Hindu Succession Act of 1956. The law, as it stands amended, has not only brought about changes in the succession laws of Hindus, but has also paved the way for some positive modifications in the law of partition, alienation of property, inheritance and adoption, and the paper is an effort to evaluate this provision of the law.

This article uses tongue in cheek to compare the possible closing, turnaround, restart, or transformation of the Indianapolis Colts with what is happening in school reform.


Regulation By Markets And Higher Education, Benedict Sheehy 2009 RMIT University

Regulation By Markets And Higher Education, Benedict Sheehy

Benedict Sheehy

Markets have a number of uses. One increasingly important use by politicians is as a means of regulating the supply and distribution of goods and services formerly supplied and distributed by governments on non-market bases. The use of markets as a regulator of higher education is not novel. However, the increased reliance on markets as a regulator of higher education is an on-going experiment with certain predictable failures. This article explores the uses of the market in the supply and distribution of higher education and weighs it against the stated policy objectives, with particular attention to the application proposed in ...


Instituições, Trabalho E Pessoas, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2009 Universidade do Porto

Instituições, Trabalho E Pessoas, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Os especialistas em doenças terminais sabem que ninguém tem saudades, quando abandona a vida, do trabalho que não fez. Tem saudades sim do tempo que não passou com familiares e amigos. A sociedade contemporânea, e algumas instituições "totais" estão a potenciar até ao expoente demencial a exploração e a despersonalização dos trabalhadores, designadamente proletarizando técnicos superiores e técnicos pensantes que, sem ócio criativo, deixarão de criar. É uma crise civilizacional, nada menos.


Das Virtudes Cívicas Clássicas Às Virtudes Pós-Modernas - Dos Tempos E Dos Modos, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2009 Universidade do Porto

Das Virtudes Cívicas Clássicas Às Virtudes Pós-Modernas - Dos Tempos E Dos Modos, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Ao mesmo tempo que importa recuperar, na nossa memória e na educação, os grandes exemplos dos virtuosos heróis e sábios da Antiguidade Clássica, que a deseducação tem olvidado, não se pode esquecer que o mundo pós-moderno em que vivemos requer de nós aptidões, virtualidades, posicionamentos diferentes. Não para caminharmos no sentido de todos os demais, mas para respondermos com valor aos reptos do presente. Este artigo procura conciliar, pois, o legado clássico das virtudes cívicas, com algumas propostas inspiradas em autores recentes (como Italo Calvino e Alain Finkielkraut) para o séc. XXI


Direito, Utopia E Insularidade, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2009 Universidade do Porto

Direito, Utopia E Insularidade, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Não é por acaso que tantas utopias literárias se localizam ficcionalmente em ilhas. Não é por acaso que as utopias são uma espécie de descrição constitucional sem as amarras dos artigos de um código de direito político. Não é por acaso que as ilhas, parecendo uma prisão, rodeada de mar por todos os lados, são afinal sonhos de onde se pode sair, voando. Não só em sonhos oníricos, mas em sonhos que se podem tornar realidade. Este artigo desenvolve as ligações entre os aspectos literários, políticos e jurídicos das utopias na sua dimensão insular.
