Samuels, Christina A. – Education Week, 2013
Well before President Barack Obama vaulted early childhood learning to the top of the education agenda in his recent State of the Union address, states were taking steps to bolster their own preschool programs.

Shah, Nirvi – Education Week, 2013
With nightmare visions of a gunman stalking school halls, districts often rush to hire police officers to patrol their campuses after news of a school shooting. Critics of that impulsive response, which has been in high gear nationwide since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in December, acknowledge the concern for student and staff…

Klein, Alyson – Education Week, 2013
Even as they seek to quantify the impact of across-the-board federal budget cuts on K-12 programs, some of the nation's neediest school districts are bracing for tough choices. The pinch from sequestration--or "the sequester," in Washington shorthand--is expected to be particularly painful for districts that depend on the most on the federal…

Schools are working to incorporate more multimedia into classrooms, upgrade online professional development, and do a better job using data to improve student achievement. Even though nearly every school in the country is now connected to the Internet, not all of them have the kind of connections that allow teachers and students to make full use…

Zubrzycki, Jaclyn – Education Week, 2013

Maxwell, Lesli A. – Education Week, 2013
As test designers work to craft the new, common assessments set to debut in most of the nation's public schools in the 2014-15 school year, their goal is to provide all English-language learners (ELLs), regardless of their language-proficiency levels, the same opportunities to demonstrate their content knowledge and skills as their peers who are…

Samuels, Christina A. – Education Week, 2013
Champions of students with disabilities have long complained that those students are often an afterthought in state testing plans. Only after a test design is completed are educators asked to go back and adapt the questions for a student who is blind, who needs help accessing text or calculating numbers, or who must use a specialized device to…

Adams, Caralee J. – Education Week, 2013
President Barack Obama applauded high school redesign efforts in his State of the Union address and encouraged districts to look to successful models for inspiration. Last week, he followed up with a request in his fiscal 2014 budget proposal for a new, $300 million competitive-grant program. Recognition is widespread that high schools need to…

Klein, Alyson – Education Week, 2013
President Barack Obama's latest budget proposal envisions a sweeping, multi-billion-dollar expansion of prekindergarten programs and doubles down on the administration's strategy of using competitive grants to drive big change in states and districts--all as school districts try to cope with the largest cuts to federal education spending in recent…

Shah, Nirvi – Education Week, 2013
By nearly all accounts, the staff and students at Sandy Hook Elementary School did everything right on Dec. 14--and with the security measures they took before that day--when a young man armed with powerful weapons blasted his way into the school. But the deadliest K-12 school shooting in American history, a day that President Barack Obama has…
