To flip, or not to flip? Your classroom, that is.
Karen Niles, Assistant Executive Director, Professional Development Services, Council for Exceptional Children
If you have children in elementary or high school, you may have heard of the "flipped classroom," a current trend in K-12 education. What's flipped is a certain paradigm of homework and classwork. Instead of students listening to lectures in class and working on problems at home, in a flipped classroom students listen to lectures (often short teacher-created videos) as homework and use class time for problem-solving activities, group work or projects.

I won't dwell into the specifics regarding the online education industry; but I will make sure you see the opportunity that is being offered to you. As a person seeking or working in an entry-level position at a business, one of the biggest assets that you have is your education. Your work experience may mainly be comprised of a series of internships (if even that).

The gender gap is closing in schools, when will it translate to the workplace?
By: Brian Stack
Despite the fact that our country is built on a foundation whereby "all" are created equal, a significant gender gap still divides us. Our schools today are producing a generation of girls who are at least as academically successful, if not more so, than their male peers. Still, if our country is to reduce its gender gap in the workplace, then schools will need to become institutions that better support and motivate girls to pursue more rigorous and demanding career fields.
