Pedro E O Lobo, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Pedro E O Lobo, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Somos constantemente bombardeados com desgraças. Os telejornais coleccionam desgraças pelo mundo, até de poucos mortos, todas juntas. O catastrofismo é empolado por privilegiados e ociosos (que disso não se dão conta), que gostariam de mais privilégios, e cuja ociosidade precisa de ser preenchida com emoções fortes, ainda que artificiais. Quando é necessário unir os Portugueses e trabalhar muito, precisamente nos acenam com o mito do Dom Sebastião... Como seria a desilusão dos incautos por eles arrastados se acaso triunfassem as suas pretensões... O presente artigo pretende sublinhar a importância do triunfo do princípio da responsabilidade sobre os impulsos tanáticos, suicidas ...


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

Mary Alice Haddad

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 ...

High School End-Of-Course Exams Show Proficiency Gains For 2010, Nathan C. Jensen, Gary W. Ritter

Policy Briefs

In July, the ADE released results for the 2009-10 end-ofcourse (EOC) exams given in Algebra I, Geometry, and Biology administered in April 2010. These results followed the Grade 11 Literacy results released in June. First, we present statewide 2010 results compared to last year. Second, test scores are examined across the state by districts' region, poverty level, and size. Third, we consider the performance of Arkansas students on other assessments to see if these results are consistent with EOC results.


República E Justiça Social, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

República E Justiça Social, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Será a República socialmente indiferente? Algumas experiências concretas (e desde logo a I República portuguesa) levaram alguns, sobretudo mais adeptos de transformações mais profundas e violentas, a criticar o republicanismo por contrário à Justiça Social, ou, pelo menos, como muito tímido nessa matéria. Mas será que a República é, por natureza, anti-social, a-social ou mesmo conservadora? Não nos parece...


República, Adjectivos E Números, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

República, Adjectivos E Números, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Políticos e comentadores que falam em renovação das instituições e a tal querem dar novo nome, caem quase sempre em expressões de conotação perigosa à luz da História política.Felizmente as nossas Repúblicas não têm numeração oficial. Em tempo de comemorações, há quem fale em mais Repúblicas do que duas. E mesmo quem se preocupe com os 100 anos da República se não se contar o interregno, o “Estado Novo”. Mas o que os republicanos comemoram é um século desde a implantação da República (1910). É esse momento que se celebra.

Act 60: The Past, Present, And Future Of School Consolidation In Arkansas, Nathan C. Jensen, Gary W. Ritter

Policy Briefs

Since its passage in 2004, Arkansas’ Act 60 has had a major impact on the smallest school districts in Arkansas.

This policy brief will report on the numbers and types of schools and districts that have closed since the passage of Act 60. Moreover, the brief will evaluate the enrollment trends to predict which school districts are “at-risk” of being consolidated for dropping below the 350 student threshold established by Act 60. The data for this policy brief is excerpted from a ...

Race, Educational Loans & Bankruptcy, Abbye Atkinson 2010 United States District Court for the Northern District of California

Race, Educational Loans & Bankruptcy, Abbye Atkinson

Michigan Journal of Race and Law

This Article reports new data from the 2007 Consumer Bankruptcy Project revealing that college graduates and specifically White graduates are less likely to file for bankruptcy than their counterparts without a college degree. Although these observations suggest that a college degree helps graduates to weather the setbacks that sometimes lead to financial hardship as measured by bankruptcy, they also indicate that a college degree may not help everyone equally. African American college graduates are equally likely to file for bankruptcy as African Americans without a college degree. Thus, a college education may not confer the same protective benefit against financial ...
