As the Auto Industry Shrinks, a Community College Retools
from The Chronicle of Higher Education
Community colleges across the country are being asked to educate more students with less money, but the sudden collapse of the car making sector has compounded the stresses of the current economic slump on Macomb Community College.

Nursing Shortage Worsened by Education Cuts
from Daily Wildcat

Job Training Program Sparkles
from Omaha World Herald
It was the final workday of a 10-day job-training program for Bobby Leonard and his friends, and the 14-person crew had been so efficient that they found time to chat with Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey and Lt. Gov. Rich Sheehy of Nebraska. Leonard was learning housepainting in a program sponsored by Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance in partnership with Sherwin Williams. With the help of trainer Bill Allman, the unemployed individuals were learning safety information about working around lead-based paint as well as housepainting skills, from surface prep to taping, proper brushing and rolling techniques and other skills.

from Associated Press
Calling the continuing job losses "a sobering toll," President Obama urged states and colleges to turn unemployment insurance into a stepping stone for future work by making it easier to enroll in school or job training. Obama unveiled his proposal shortly after the government reported that 539,000 more jobs were lost in April, pushing unemployment to 8.9 percent, the highest level since late 1983. Still, it was the smallest job loss in six months, as the pace of layoffs dropped from more than 600,000 in March. More

Creating Assignments That Work for Digital Learning Environments
from The Journal
Teachers who spend time actually thinking through assignments that align with the learning outcomes of a course are the most effective in assessing the learning that has taken place.
