Adequate Yearly Progress In Arkansas 2009-10, Nathan C. Jensen, Gary W. Ritter 2010 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Adequate Yearly Progress In Arkansas 2009-10, Nathan C. Jensen, Gary W. Ritter

Policy Briefs

At the end of October, the Arkansas Department of Education released annual adequate yearly progress (AYP) figures for Arkansas schools. These results are based on benchmark and end-of-course test scores in math and literacy for both overall populations and subgroups within schools. They are used to determine whether a school meets state standards and, given their performance in the most recent two years, whether they are placed in the "school improvement" category


Religion: How To Stay Out Of Court, Kenneth Akers, Sara Rotramel, Jorge Wellmann 2010 Western Kentucky University

Religion: How To Stay Out Of Court, Kenneth Akers, Sara Rotramel, Jorge Wellmann

Parameters of Law in Student Affairs and Higher Education (CNS 670)

In the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, it reads that, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” This single sentence, the Establishment Clause, is the backbone of religious freedom in the United States, and with its several annotations it has given shape and breadth to the concept of religion in America, more specifically our topic, i ...


Combating Cyberbullying: Emphasizing Education Over Criminalization, Jessica P. Meredith 2010 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Combating Cyberbullying: Emphasizing Education Over Criminalization, Jessica P. Meredith

Federal Communications Law Journal

The advent of new technologies such as social media websites like MySpace and Facebook have increased the methods through which bullying takes form and causes harm to children and teenagers. As the public has become more aware of the dangers of this new form of bullying, cyberbullying, legislators have responded by proposing legislation to criminalize this type of behavior with varying degrees of success. This Note explains the problem of cyberbullying and evaluates state and federal legislative efforts to combat the issue through criminalization, then argues that prevention through education will be the most effective solution. Unlike criminalization, educational initiatives ...


Visões E Revisões Constitucionais, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Visões E Revisões Constitucionais, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Os tempos actuais são apesar de tudo excelentes para reflectir sobre o vero alcance das normas. E sobretudo das normas generosas da nossa Constituição democrática e social. Não se pense que a Constituição é milagrosa. As crises, como aquela em que nos encontramos, colocam-lhe desafios sérios, e é a força das coisas, dos factos, e não o normativo dos textos, quem impera normalmente.


Revisões Constitucionais Inconstitucionais?, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Revisões Constitucionais Inconstitucionais?, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Algumas propostas de revisão constitucional parecem ignorar que tal procedimento está constitucionalizado, e que há regras para o fazer, assim como vários limites a respeitar. Só podem ser consideradas iniciativas de divulgação de ideários políticos porque, se por absurdo fossem por diante, acabariam por constituir revisões constitucionais inconstitucionais. Um dos pontos mais nevráligicos da polémica (não só portuguesa) sobre as mutações constitucionais é o Estado Social. Sobre ele se gerou um amplo consenso na Constituinte, que persiste e até talvez se haja aprofundado na sociedade de hoje. Ele faz intrinsecamente parte do programa da Constituição vigente, pelo que revê-la de ...


Gêneros Textuais E Práticas Discursivas Jurídicas: A Arquitetura De Uma Petição Inicial, Marcia Terezinha Jerônimo Oliveira Cruz 2010 Universidade Federal de Sergipe - Brasil

Gêneros Textuais E Práticas Discursivas Jurídicas: A Arquitetura De Uma Petição Inicial, Marcia Terezinha Jerônimo Oliveira Cruz

Marcia Terezinha Jerônimo Oliveira Cruz

O objetivo deste trabalho é analisar a Petição Inicial enquanto gênero textual. A importância do estudo se justifica no fato de a Petição Inicial se constituir na peça inaugural de toda demanda na esfera cível, de procedimento ordinário. A pesquisa baseou-se em levantamento bibliográfico composto do conceito de gênero textual proposto por Koch (2005) e Marcuschi (2008) e na concepção teórica e método sóciosemiótico de Ruqayia Hasan explicitados por Motta-Roth e Heberle (2005). Do ponto de vista jurídico, o estudo se fundamentou no Código de Processo Civil Brasileiro e na concepção de linguagem jurídica de Bittar (2006). O procedimento analítico ...


Palavras Claras, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Palavras Claras, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Cuidemos das palavras. É tão fácil identificar um novo-rico cultural ou um tecnocrata vazio pela linguagem de plástico... Essa linguagem (voltei a ver agora numa releitura de António Telmo, mas já está em Confúcio), molda mesmo a mente. Quem assim fala, assim pensa. É critério infalível.


Lições Do Kiwi, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Lições Do Kiwi, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Nenhum desafio, nem mesmo o do sabor de um fruto descrito por palavras, pode ficar sem resposta – ainda que aproximativa; a ausência de convenções sobre o como fazer não deve paralisar quem quer fazer; a analogia com o fazer outras coisas pode servir de inspiração; mas não se pode fazer algo de novo, ou face a coisas novas meramente repetindo o antigo – é preciso alguma inovação, ainda que na reunião dos meios; finalmente, cada coisa, cada desafio novo, cada nova tarefa, convoca instrumentos adequados, e não outros.

After reviewing the history of the Pledge the second section examines the litigation involving the pledge, including Elk Grove in this regard. The article concludes with brief reflections on the meaning of Elk Grove.


República E Monarquia: Desfazendo Confusões, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

República E Monarquia: Desfazendo Confusões, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Há pelo menos três sentidos essencias da palavra República... Se os confundirmos, estamos perdidos, nunca nos entenderemos. O sentido mais profícuo é o material ou substancial e intermédio: nem o que diz que todas as sociedades políticas o são (sentido hoje quase esquecido), nem o que identifica formalmente as repúblicas com todas as sociedades que não têm rei, sem lhes verificar requisitos éticos. Há um "quid" especial nas Repúblicas para quem é republicano. E que não tem nada a ver com o que nelas vêem os monárquicos ou os indiferentes (?)...

Parental Due Process: Fields V. Palmdale School District, Roxana M. Smith 2010 Golden Gate University School of Law

Parental Due Process: Fields V. Palmdale School District, Roxana M. Smith

Golden Gate University Law Review

The Ninth Circuit reaffirmed in Fields v. Palmdale School District that the constitutional "due process right of parents to make decisions regarding their children's education does not" authorize "individual parents to enjoin school boards from providing information" deemed appropriate in the performance of their educational function. The court further held that the parental right of privacy over the upbringing of children does not entitle parents to prohibit public schools from providing curricula about sex which the schools' boards deem educationally appropriate.

The State-In-Society Approach To Democratization With Examples From Japan, Mary Alice Haddad 2010 Wesleyan University

The State-In-Society Approach To Democratization With Examples From Japan, Mary Alice Haddad

Division II Faculty Publications

How does an undemocratic country create democratic institutions and transform its polity in such a way that democratic values and practices become integral parts of its political culture? This article uses the case of Japan to advocate for a new theoretical approach to the study of democratization. In particular, it examines how theoretical models based on the European and North American experiences have difficulty explaining the process of democratization in Japan, and argues that a state-in-society approach is better suited to explaining the democratization process diverse cultural contexts. Taking a bottom-up view of recent developments in Japanese civil society through ...
