In this module we explore culture and diversity as it applies to educators and education, by exploring the influence of culture on everyday activity, on individual identity development, and as it relates to systems of power and privilege in our education systems. In education, what works for some students may not work for others. By understanding the lives of the students and what they bring to their education, we can build on those strengths. To do this, we must become culturally responsive...

From the perspective of two practitioners who have been influenced by work in the area of critical pedagogy and critical theory, this article examines bilingual education, education reform, and the achievement gap in relation to Latino English Language Learners. The authors integrate personal experiences as they examine underlying assumptions of class, race, and asymmetrical power relations in current education policy and classroom practice. They argue that, despite feelings of being...

"This study was the first randomized controlled trial to assess the impact of Odyssey Math on student achievement. The study had the statistical power needed to detect a 0.20 effect size and was well designed in that comparable groups were created at baseline and maintained through posttesting. Implementation during the school year was documented and shown to be consistent with typical implementation of the Odyssey Math software. The results from the multilevel model with pretest covariates...

This report “looks at the convergence of three powerful sociological and economical forces that are changing our nation's future: (a) substantial disparities in skill levels (reading and math); (b) seismic economic changes (widening wage gaps); and (c) sweeping demographic changes (less education, lower skills). (The authors show that) there is little chance that economic opportunities will improve among key segments of our population if we follow our current path. To date, educational...

Historically, political and social forces have strategically converged to directly influence the formulation and implementation of education policies that seek to equalize educational opportunities for members of minority groups. Such has been the case with school desegregation efforts. Since the 1954 Brown Decision, powerful interest groups have sought and secured the assistance of the courts in providing legal support in abandoning desegregation initiatives. Unfortunately, fifty years...

The failure or poor performance of tribal students in their academic tests has initiated deep debates and grave discussions now-a-days. It is worthwhile to note that tribal students in India are not only they who reside in ashrams or hostels of different urban schools and colleges, and are mostly compared by researchers with non-tribal students. Rather, a major portion of tribals dwell in rural and tribal settings and some of them pursue their education in poorly maintained schools and...

Standards, potential, power and community are discussed as critical elements of the broader context of children in the public schools. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.

It is probably never easy to have a deep conversation with another person; each person’s hopes, fears, anxieties, doubts, dreams, and many other powerful feelings, conscious and unconscious, easily get in the way of honest and full expression. To have a deep conversation with a stranger, or with whole groups of strangers and even an entire community, can seem impossible.To talk openly and honestly about our experiences of schooling is equally challenging. Some of our most significant...

This paper tells the unfinished journey of standards-based reform in the Boston Public Schools. It explores the importance of creating a sensible and interdependent relationship between general and special education and illustrates how the strength of working together can impact the power of a large school district to truly serve all students.

"For RCTs of education interventions, it is often of interest to estimate associations between student and mediating teacher practice outcomes, to examine the extent to which the study’s conceptual model is supported by the data, and to identify specific mediators that are most associated with student learning. This paper develops statistical power formulas for such exploratory analyses under clustered school-based RCTs using ordinary least squares (OLS) and instrumental variable (IV...

Noting that differences and inequality of education exist in the United States of America, this paper presents two model educational programs that address the iniquities in American public education. The first model is a collaborative effort of a public school in an urban northeast community, the Robert L. Ford Elementary School of Lynn, Massachusetts, USA and a public supported college of higher education, Salem State College, Salem, Massachusetts, USA, whose joint venture is known as The...

The article presents findings from research investigating the history of the U.S. black education during the first half of the twentieth century and provides insight into the application of Brian Simon's, an educationist, ideas to different national context. Hundreds of black scholars pursued advanced degrees at a select group of northern research universities with cutting-edge programmes in the field of education. Belief in the political power to be gained through liberal education...
