Britain’s private school problem: it’s time to talk | Education

The existence in Britain of a flourishing private-school sector not only limits the life chances of those who attend state schools but also damages society at large, and it should be possible to have a sustained and fully inclusive national conversation about the subject.

The Past Meets the Future: How to Bring Confucian Virtues into Higher Ed with Educational Technology – Education Article

On August 6, 1991, the World Wide Web became public to the world and forever changed the way that ideas move. Although in-person dialogues and interactions are historically significant ways for the movement of information, communication technologies have become a central way to learn in higher education and beyond.

While IQ remains a very strong predictor of career success, our research suggests that people with high emotional intelligence are more likely to have higher wages.

Top 12 CTE Reasons to Use Atlas Curriculum Mapping – Education Article

by Mark Tanner, CTE Curriculum Development Specialist from HFM Career and Technical Education Center, NY This post was originally published in January 2014 and was updated in July 2019.

Charter Schools Cherry Pick Students & Call it Choice – PART 1: The “I Didn’t Do It!” Excuse – Education Article

  It takes a certain kind of hypocrite to be a charter school champion.   You have to deny any wrongdoing one minute. And then admit you’re guilty but explain it away with the excuse “Everyone’s doing it!” the next.  Take cherry picking – one of the most common admonishments leveled against the school privatization industry.  Detractors claim that charter schools keep enrollment low and then out of those who apply, they pick and choose which students to accept.  Charters…

Teaching is ruining my life, but I don’t know what to do instead | Guardian Careers

We asked readers to get in touch with work-related problems they need guidance on. An anonymous teacher, 41, from West Yorkshire, wrote: I’m desperate to get out of teaching. It’s exhausting, stressful and is ruining my life. I’m not a senior leader so can’t go on to be a consultant or inspector. I’ve been teaching for over a decade and most of the jobs I’ve seen that suit my skills and experience could mean taking over a 50% pay cut.…

The Parent’s Guide to Filling Out the FAFSA® Form – Education Article

While the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form is the student’s application, we know that parents often play a large role in the process. After all, students who are considered dependent have to provide parental information on the FAFSA form anyway and must have a parent sign it. While we recommend that the student start his or her own FAFSA form, we know that’s not always what happens. With that in mind, we wanted to provide instructions for parents who are starting…

10 Common Questions About Vocational Education and Training – Education Article

Originally launched as a series of state-run apprenticeships and traineeships, the VET system is now fully supported by the Commonwealth and regulated under the Australian Quality Framework.

‘Symbolically posh’ Bristol University expanding to wrong side of tracks | Education

In the well-heeled district of Clifton in Bristol, with its Georgian crescents and French brasseries, 100% of school leavers go to university. Yet in the southern suburb of Hartcliffe, the figures are the lowest in the country: only 8.6% make it there. This is the divided face of Brexit Britain. Bristol University, part of the Russell Group and a favourite among private school students, has long been at the privileged heart of Clifton. But it has radical plans to pull…

How to Spot Dyslexia, and What to Do Next – Education Article

Listen to my interview with Lisa Brooks (transcript): Sponsored by Pixton and ViewSonic   When I was a “regular” classroom teacher, my knowledge of specific learning disabilities was limited at best. My teacher prep program required one course in special education; it was very broad, very general, and I barely remembered anything I learned in it. This means I was woefully ill-equipped to support the students in my room with special needs—those who arrived with a formal diagnosis and those…
