Clabaugh, Gary K. – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2008
For decades, both state and national officials have complained that U.S. school children are not learning as much as they should, and these critics typically presuppose that the problem is school based. They are, in a sense, fixating on one element of a complex system, while ignoring the fact that the problem might be caused by external factors.…

Blankenship, Mark – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2010
Not long ago, television sets in classrooms were a novel idea and most professors could remember the days of slide rules, mimeograph machines, and manual typewriters. Now, even DVD players can seem quaint. But education has been altered by the breathtakingly rapid technological advancements of the last 10 years, and just like the rest of the…

Sugai, George – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2009
Over the past 25 years, Gallup polls have consistently reported that disruptive behavior and discipline problems are some of the top concerns of school staff and community members.

Seaman, Michael – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2012
Anti-bullying is much more than pointing fingers and labeling perpetrators. Teens who are labeled as bullies are unlikely to simply change their ways just because they have been accused of bullying. Preventing bullying also goes beyond hanging rules on a classroom wall. The real goal should be to undermine bullying by fostering compassion in…

Fedore, Heidi – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2006
It is readily apparent that testing raises academic standards at both the state and the federal levels. The three Rs currently touted as aims for school improvement--rigor, relevance, and relationships--can be applied to testing as well. The connection between standardized testing and rigor can be easily made, while the relevance of testing is…

Spitalli, Samuel J. – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2005
Some classroom-management techniques actually undermine establishment of an orderly classroom and impair an otherwise competent teacher's ability to win changing behavior. Instead of changing behavior, all teachers achieve with these heavy-handed techniques is minimal compliance, beneath which lies deep resentment, a breeding ground for…

Kohn, Alfie – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2010
Throughout the 1990s, one state after another adopted prescriptive education standards enforced by frequent standardized testing, often of the high-stakes variety. A top-down, get-tough movement to impose "accountability" began to squeeze the life out of classrooms. Recently, politicians, corporate CEOs, and testing companies are trying to sell…

Steadman, Sharilyn C.; Simmons, John S. – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2007
Across America, school districts face a problem of numbers: too many students, too few educators. In some areas, the shortage of classroom teachers is approaching crisis proportions. One solution designed to address the recruitment side of the problem is found in the creation of Non-University Certification Programs (NUCPs). The designs and…

Starnes, Bobby Ann – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2005
This article describes one unconventional elementary school teacher's frustrations with colleagues doubting her competence, intelligence, and sense of purpose as a teacher. In her classroom, she never used textbooks or had a teacher's desk. There were no contests, gold stars, or redbird reading groups. There were no school-supply decorations,…

Black, Susan – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2005
In this article, the author stresses that teachers need to teach their students to think critically and to reason their way.

Riggins, Cheryl G. – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2006
Good education begins with an objective assessment and accurate diagnosis of specific "deficiencies."

In this article, the author describes how student-centered…

Bollinger, Lee – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2007
Those involved in higher education understand that the admissions process has less to do with rewarding each student's past performance--although high performance is clearly essential--than it does with building a community of diverse learners who will thrive together and teach one another. Reports have noted that many leading public universities…
