  AROUND THE INDUSTRY



Push on counseling
Inside Higher Ed
The White House's higher education summit in January, as some critics described it, was all about appealing to the cameras. he event, to be sure, drew mainstream headlines as President Barack Obama exercised his "convening authority" to summon to the White House dozens of college presidents — many of whom seemed pretty excited to come to Washington and snap photos of the president and first lady. But the administration's first public event following up on that summit was decidedly less publicity-focused. It was about digging into the trenches on school counseling: best practices in college counseling, how to better-train counselors and how to harness new technology to help students.

Guidance counselors key in bid to increasing overall access to college
Diverse: Issues In Higher Education
In order to make sure all students leave high school prepared for college, a greater emphasis must be placed on the often-overlooked role of school guidance counselors and how to engage them in more thoughtful and systematic ways. Those were among the key points made during a daylong White House college access seminar hosted at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Shootings redefine beat of school police officers
The New York Times
Once, perhaps unfairly, they fit a Mayberry image. School-based police officers were seen as friendly if a bit over-the-hill, a touch out of shape and counting the days to retirement as they watched children head from the lunchroom to recess. If anything serious happened, they were to lock the building and wait for help. But the string of mass killings at schools over the past 15 years has changed all that, adding urgent new duties and risks to the job and drawing in younger and often burlier officers. Out of hard experience has come a major rethinking of tactics in a crisis.

How acting out in school boosts learning
Scientific America
Acting out in school is often a prelude to parents receiving a call from the principal. But, there are ways of acting out that tremendously increase learning — namely acting out as a way of grounding, or making sense of, abstract information. There is a growing body of research showing the value of this sort of acting out. One example is the Moved by Reading intervention for teaching reading comprehension. Using the intervention, children act out the meaning of sentences by moving images on a computer screen.

Parents in uproar after more than 450 New York City schools change start time to comply with new teachers union contract
New York Daily News
More than 450 city schools will change the start time of classes in September to comply with rules in the new teachers union contract, Education Department officials said. The widespread change was prompted by a new requirement in the city's deal with the teachers union to set aside extra time for teacher training and parent conferences. But some frustrated parents are howling they've been left out of the decision to tweak instructional times, which they say will force them to overhaul their own schedules.

10 steps that protect the privacy of student data
THE Journal
Over the past year, data privacy has become a top concern of parents and policymakers. Lead news stories on national security surveillance and the theft of department store credit card information have heightened awareness of the issue and escalated the debate on the political right and left. In education, concerns about privacy were a contributing factor to the failure of the inBloom effort.

Balancing special-education needs with rising costs
The New York Times
Dylan B. Randall could not speak or stand. He never tasted food because he was fed through a gastric tube in his belly. He breathed through a ventilator; his own saliva would choke him unless a nurse cleared his throat every few minutes. It was a daily struggle to keep Dylan alive, much less educate him. And when his public school could not deliver all the daily therapy the then 5-year-old was supposed to receive, his parents asked that New York City pay for what they believed was the kind of education Dylan needed: a private school for disabled children.

For schools with child immigrants, what resources are available?
Education Week
While the Obama administration takes action to stem the flow of unaccompanied minors across the Southwest border and contain the mounting political blowback, many of these children have already turned up in public schools and will continue to do so in the months ahead. Under federal law, they are entitled to a free public education regardless of their immigration status. Just two months ago, the U.S. Department of Education reminded school districts of their legal obligations when it comes to undocumented students.

US educators lead the world in overestimating student poverty, which may affect educational mobility
The Hechinger Report
Do educators' perceptions of how disadvantaged their students are matter? Put another way, when teachers think their students are underprivileged, do they have lower expectations for them, and do their students achieve less at school? In a July 22, 2014, article "Poverty and the perception of poverty — how both matter for schooling outcomes," Andreas Schleicher, director of education and skills at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, argues that perceptions often matter more than reality, with distressing consequences.
