Education news from around the nation
Wanted: 11 new school superintendents. Must be able to move fast. That's what the Los Angeles Unified School District ( LAUSD ) seemed to be looking for in the wake of the LAUSD board's unanimous vote to divide the nation's second largest school district into 11 autonomous minidistricts by July 1. Interim Superintendent Ramon C. Cortines proposed the reorganization as a way to deal with the district's management problems and low test scores. In the latest round of statewide standardized testing, not a single LAUSD grade level scored near the national average in such disciplines as math, language, reading, and spelling. "Student achievement is the only reason to reorganize," said board President Genethia Hudley Hayes. "We've failed every sector of our youngsters." Seventy percent of parents of school-aged children in the district rate their public schools as fair to poor, according to a recent Los Angeles Times poll.

The building is state of the art architecture and was first opened in Spring 2003. In the New Science Building, the department offers three computer labs for student use. The first lab is general purpose and this lab has been present for a number of years. However, in the new building, the department has two newly created state-of-the-art computer labs. One lab is dedicated to remote sensing and is specifically being used for the Geographical Information System (GIS). The second lab is for weather forecasting and analysis. This lab runs a meteorological weather prediction model known as the MM5 and is used extensively for meteorological observations, including satellite, radar and weather station observations.

OCR's Testing (Mis)Guidance: Anti-Education, Anti-Civil Rights Roger Clegg * The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights ("OCR") has decided to wade into the controversy surrounding the use of standardized tests in primary, secondary, and higher education. In the spring last year, OCR began circulating "draft guidelines" on "Nondiscrimination in High-Stakes Testing." The draft was leaked, apparently by disgruntled college admission officers, to The Chronicle of Higher Education, which put the guidelines on its website. Much controversy ensued, culminating in OCR head Norma Cantu being brought in to testify before the House Education and Workforce Committee in July. Cantu protested that the draft was just preliminary and promised that future drafts would be more widely shared. In December, a revised version — still just a draft — was released, with a considerably longer text and title: "The Use of Tests When Making High-Stakes Decisions for Students: A Resource Guide for Educators and Policymakers." The guidelines, which challenge the use of standardized tests when they have a "disparate impact" on racial or ethnic groups, remain deeply and fundamentally flawed, however.

    Taking Standardized Tests
    Now is not the time to roll out of bed, throw on whatever's closest to you and make a mad dash to your testing lab. Standardized tests like the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and American College Testing (ACT) Assessment are important variables that can round out your college application or put you on shaky ground. Standardized tests are an important part of the admissions process at many colleges. These exams offer colleges a consistent measure of your academic potential against other students. So all other factors being equal, these tests are likely to heavily influence your chances of getting into a particular school. Your SAT and ACT scores need to be up to the standards of the university to which you're seeking admission. Some schools admit only those with the best scores and encourage students to take the test more than once. To ensure the highest possible score, it is very important to prepare for the tests. The Tests PSAT SAT 1 SAT II: Subject Tests ... Test Taking Tips The Tests There are several types of standardized tests. The two major tests used for college entrance exams are the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and the American College Testing (ACT) Assessment.

    The University of Maryland, College Park, is a publicly supported, land grant, research institution dedicated primarily to the educational needs of Maryland residents.

Currently, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 3 territories, and more than 150 foreign countries are represented in the undergraduate population. Admission policies are determined by the Board of Regents. As prescribed by the Board of Regents, the university expects all applicants, at a minimum, to have completed by high school graduation the following course work: four years of English; three years of mathematics, including Algebra I or Applied Math I and II, or geometry; or three years of history or social science; three years of science in at least two different areas with at least two lab sciences; and two years of a foreign language. These criteria represent the minimum requirements to be considered for admission. Successful applicants typically present academic credentials which exceed the minimum, several honors and/or Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, and additional academic electives.

    ... Graduate School Resources Reasons for Graduate Study
    It is essential to understand why you want to pursue a professional or graduate degree. Ask yourself the question: "What do I hope to gain by continuing at or returning to, university?". As you investigate the possibilities, weigh the reality against your own expectations.
    Many people choose graduate study for one of the following reasons:
  • Career Enhancement : Professional degrees - teacher, doctor, lawyer, librarian - will give you a career for life, but take time to check out the numbers of jobs now available as well as future forecasts.
    A research degree will give you extra credentials, but will your field of study be in demand in five years time?
    Is your graduate degree in tune with market-place demands? Academic Addiction : Some people see university as a means to a career, others want university study to become the career itself. For these, the pursuit of learning brings intense satisfaction. Resetting Goals : Sometimes the realization that a wrong turn has been taken, and an imappropriate goal pursued, or that life's circumstances have changed, can be the encouragement for a person to return to university and study in an entirely different field.

    Georgia's Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Curriculum A Framework for Developing and Implementing Asset Building Standards
    Evaluation Introduction
    School Counselors work with all students, school staff, administrators, parents, and the community as a function of their total guidance program. Guidance and counseling programs promote school success through a focus on academic achievement, prevention and intervention activities, advocacy, social/emotional, and career development. (American School Counselor Association, 1997.)
    The Revised Guidance and Counseling Curriculum provides a framework for standards as to what a quality school counseling program should contain, as well as serving as an organizational guide for developing appropriate competencies for student success. The curriculum provides the standards as the acknowledged criteria used to make judgments about the adequacy and structure of the program, and a sufficient number of program standards should be written to represent a good guidance model.
    The program that should be developed from the curriculum should address these questions:

    Guidance Department
    The mission of the Guidance Department is multifaceted. First, each student will be provided with personal/individual counseling. Adolescence can be a time filled with turmoil for some children as they mature and grow into adulthood. It is essential that they have available to them a qualified professional to help them sort out their issues and talk with them. The guidance department of Admiral Farragut will provide crisis intervention therapy when necessary and then will take the lead in finding a reputable resource to provide any extended counseling or other psychiatric services. As an intermediary step between the student having a need for a counseling session with the guidance counselor and an actual meeting with that student and/or their family, the student will have the opportunity to designate a staff person of their choice to help the with their concerns. These advisory periods will occur pro re nata (as needed). Second, if necessary, Admiral Farragut Academy will provide initial family related counseling services. Of course, if either the personal or family counseling sessions uncover issues that require more in-depth therapy referrals will be made to the appropriate agencies in the community so that, ideally, the student can continue their studies and the family or student can get the help they need.
