Rowsell, Jennifer; Morrell, Ernest; Alvermann, Donna E. – Reading Teacher, 2017
There is far more to the digital divide than meets the eye. In this article, the authors consolidate existing research on the digital divide to offer some tangible ways for educators to bridge the gap between the haves and have-nots, or the cans and cannots.

West, Justin J.; Bautista, Alfredo – Arts Education Policy Review, 2021
In this article, we apply the concept of systemness to music and arts teacher professional development (PD), arguing that to address perennial issues of access and scale, PD policy should be understood as a systems issue.

Prager, Karen – Educational Testing Service, 2011
America is failing its young Black boys.

Baggaley, Jon – Distance Education, 2013
Inaccurate predictions about educational technology are discussed, and the tendency for them to go unchallenged.

Cohen, Bronwen – International Journal of Early Childhood, 2013
Devolution within the United Kingdom (UK) forms part of increased regionalisation in the European Union (EU). The post-devolution history of early childhood education and care (ECEC) in Scotland illustrates problems arising from split responsibilities and nation-state policies that fail to take adequate account of devolved administrations. UK-led…

Chiado, Wendy S. – ProQuest LLC, 2012
Too many of our nation's youth have failed to complete high school.

Cass, Oren – Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, 2018
America's education system, from kindergarten through the state university, is designed to produce college graduates. Those who stop short of at least a community-college diploma are widely regarded as failures, or at least victims of a failed system. Yet most Americans fall into this category, and current trends offer little hope for improvement.…

The author evaluates the ideologically based economic and educational policies of…

Hess, Frederick M.; Squire, Juliet P. – American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, 2009
What to do about persistently low-performing schools is a pressing challenge for policymakers and educators across the nation. Schools that fail to make "adequate yearly progress" (AYP) for five consecutive years under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) must be "restructured." The 3,500 schools in the United States currently in…
