The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness

Educational PsychologyOnce we were youngsters we tended to dream about what we will do as adults. An educational psychologist will conduct research and studies which might be related to schooling. They could conduct analysis on how properly folks study in sure settings or with a sure sort of instruction. With this research, they’ll then try to develop new and improved teaching techniques and studying methods to be able to assist those which can be battling their training.

The federal government is taking the same strategy. Its effort now includes a campaign that targets bystanders, encouraging them to place a stop to bullying. “When they set that peer culture that bullying is just not accepted, you get rid of type of those social good points you might get from bullying,” Temkin says. A multitude of additional resources to beat back bullying can be found on-line. Among them are the federal authorities’s initiative … Read more

State Board of Education member resigns, citing difficulty staying in Michigan

Michigan State Board of Education member Jason Strayhorn resigned Friday, saying he is moving out of state to support academic and sports opportunities offered to his three children.

Strayhorn, 46, told The Detroit News on Friday he recently sold his Novi home and lost his Michigan residency after 30 years. It was a decision he and his wife made after their three children were extended offers for academic and athletic careers in Florida and California.

“We have tried to continue having a Michigan residence. It became clear, it was too expensive and it’s too much,” Strayhorn said. “It’s very hard, extremely hard.”

Strayhorn said he got into his role on the state board to show Michigan’s school children the possibilities for people of color and lazy in education. He was elected to an eight-year term in 2020.

Strayhorn sent a letter to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer that he is stepping down,

New Fla. law allows vets to sidestep certification, education to teach

Third grade teacher, Heather Stallings, smiles with her students after receiving the Golden Apple award from Champions For Learning on Thursday, Feb.  17, 2022 at Calusa Park Elementary in Naples, Fla.  The education foundation made a surprise visit to six schools to recognize teachers and their classroom best practices.

Florida’s public school teachers need to be offered the military job of their choice.

It’s only fair. Maybe they need a break from teaching high school geometry, middle school social studies or reading to elementary schoolers.

They could use a breather from the confining rigors of a public school classroom in Florida, to see the world aboard a Navy destroyer, inside an Army tank, or on the flight line of an Air Force fighter squadron.

Liz Truss pitches herself as the ‘education prime minister’ | Liz Truss

Liz Truss has pitched herself as the “education prime minister” with a plan that includes Replacing failing academies with “a new wave of free schools” and improving maths and literacy standards.

The Tory leadership hopeful, whose endorsement by party heavyweights has added to the sense she is pulling ahead of rival Rishi Sunak in the race for No 10, unveiled a six-point strategy on Saturday “to get Britain’s education system back on track”.

That includes expanding existing academies which are high performing, while Replacing failing ones with free schools – newly set up academies.

Academies are state-funded schools that are independent from local authorities.

In an often-repeated line of her leadership campaign, Truss said she saw “first-hand how children were failed and let down by low expectations” during her comprehensive state schooling in Leeds.

The remarks have previously drawn criticism from political leaders in the city, and former pupils and

AZ Proposition 208 education tax officially dead; focus moves to cap

The judge overseeing the long-running battle over a voter-approved tax increase for education officially buried it this week, setting the stage for possible action on raising the spending limit for public schools.

However, there is little appetite among lawmakers to come back to the Capitol to tackle the spending cap. Unless they do, schools can’t spend much of the historic increase in K-12 funding that lawmakers approved just one month ago.

If that disinterest holds, Arizona’s district schools could face deep cuts early next spring to ensure their collective spending is beneath a constitutional spending cap. It would repeat the cliffhanger that happened early this year, as lawmakers waited until days before a March 1 deadline to waive what is known as the “aggregate expenditure limit.”

Chuck Essigs, director of government relations at the Arizona School Boards Association.

Chuck Essigs, director of governmental relations for the Arizona Association of School Budget Officials, said early projections show the cuts could amount to $1.5
