Eleanor Goetzinger, a special ed teacher and behavior specialist in the Oklahoma City Public Schools, talks with Marty West about what the strike meant for her, for her students, and for schools in Oklahoma. High expectations are as critical as ever. Education Next and PDK both released the results of major surveys of public opinion about education in recent weeks. A new suggests that higher-quality private schools are less likely to participate in two of the most highly regulated voucher programs in the country, the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program and the Ohio Educational Choice Scholarship Program.

Schools are not more responsive to parent and community preferences regarding the arts because parents and communities no longer really control their schools. The Northeast is expected to be the hardest hit, but demand for spots in elite institutions is not expected to decline. Education leaders need to hold firm on these advances in the rigor and technical quality of their tests, even as they take on the next steps of aligning high-quality curriculum and instruction.

According to a significant body of research, students tend to benefit from having teachers who look like them, especially nonwhite students, yet the teacher work force is overwhelmingly white and female. The Office of the Inspector General from the U. Department of Education is widely respected for its efforts to ferret out waste, fraud and abuse, but what happens when the OIG starts making policy recommendations?

In a popular novel, Joe Klein once explained the need for greater civility and respect in society. School is back in session after one of the hottest summers in recorded history, and many students are now in classrooms without air conditioning. A new study looks at how hotter school days impact. Veteran educator Roxanna Elden is out with her first novel, Adequate Yearly Progress, which follows teachers at an urban high school as their professional lives impact their personal lives and vice versa. In many states, assessments have advanced considerably over the previous generation of assessments.

These questions can help parents get a read on school culture and values and not just buzzwords and can also help educators think deeply about how they want their schools to work. A large majority of Americans continue to support the federal requirement that all students be tested in math and reading each year in grades 3 through 8 and once in high school. Simulations can help educators and school leaders get practice and feedback in low-stakes settings.

Private colleges currently enroll 30 percent of students attending four-year colleges, but they face declining enrollment and mounting deficits. Is a crisis on the horizon? The EdNext poll finds that the public is overwhelmingly opposed to considering race in K—12 school assignment decisions as part of efforts to increase school diversity, though the difference between support and opposition has narrowed somewhat since the question was last asked in Peterson and Marty West look at the biggest changes in public opinion revealed by the EdNext Poll, some of which relate to charter schools and vouchers.

Why does so much high-quality education policy research come from North Carolina? In states where teachers walked out of their classrooms this spring to protest low salaries and cuts to school spending, public support for raising salaries has grown significantly. Teacher turnover and shortages are challenges that the entire education field faces, but these challenges are especially acute for teachers of color. Several universities are putting free Amazon Echo Dot devices in student dorm rooms to help students more easily access information about their schools.

New in the EdNext poll is a breakdown of teacher respondents that shows sharp differences between union and nonunion members on certain issues. What does the public think about teacher strikes, teacher salaries, agency fees, and more? And what do teachers think? Peterson can discuss the results of the Education Next poll. Support for charter schools and private school voucher programs has gone up over the past year according to the new EdNext poll.

The research in this area is incomplete, but a recent development makes us hopeful that better data are on the horizon. The Boston Public Schools will be led by an interim superintendent this fall, since former superintendent Tommy Chang was asked by the mayor of Boston to step down last June. Steve Poftak talks with Paul E. Peterson about some of the challenges that have faced, and will continue to face, the school district, including debates over school start times, diversity levels at exam schools, whether the student assignment system is causing segregation, transportation costs, and what happens next for BPS.

Some states are putting in place linked data systems that enable them to identify students who are economically disadvantaged regardless of whether their families fill out a form. Many systems include differential funding reimbursement for programs with higher quality ratings. Decades of Catholic school leaders did not adapt to changing circumstances to ensure that middle-income families would still be able to afford tuition.

If we allow students to move at their own pace, there is no longer a need to label and sort them. However, a range of research also shows that many early childhood programs do not have positive long-term effects. A new study investigates whether teaching practices differ in effectiveness depending on the students in the class. It finds that the impact of good classroom management and student-centered instruction vary depending on whether the students in the classroom are of high ability or of mixed ability.

Enrollment in private schools is falling among middle-income students, while high-income and low-income student enrollment in private schools is holding steady. Has expanding income inequality fueled a broader increase in segregation at both public and private schools? During the last school year, the number of charter schools in California grew by a mere 1. As part of our Fall forum, Kevin Carey discusses rethinking the rules on higher-ed spending. As part of our Fall forum, Michael B.

Horn and Alana Dunagan discuss rethinking the rules on higher-ed spending. Teachers are likely a key element in the successful inclusion of students with disabilities SWDs , but few studies have investigated how general-education teachers are impacted. Policies and practices that might be successful overall could actually help one group of students while harming another. When teachers receive instructional coaching, the quality of their instruction improves, but larger coaching programs are less effective than smaller ones.

Three universities partnered with Amazon last year to provide some students with free voice-activated devices Echo Dots programmed to answer questions from students. New research just published by Education Next indicates that enrollment in private schools is falling among middle-income students, while high-income and low-income student enrollment in private schools is holding steady.

Historically, professional development for teachers has been dominated by daylong seminars that took teachers out of the classroom and delivered the same tips and tricks to an entire department, grade level, or school.

New Business with the New Military

Before schools in the southern U. After the passage of the Civil Rights Act, southern schools began to be desegregated, and this had a big effect on black teacher employment. Early studies that addressed peer effects in inclusive classrooms did not identify any negative academic consequences for students without disabilities. Recently seven students attending public schools in Detroit sued the state of Michigan, arguing that their schools should have grounded literacy instruction in evidence-based practices.

Raw population numbers are what matter most in predicting future demand for postsecondary education. Many school leaders spend time attending to every little thing that comes up instead of supporting teachers and improving student outcomes. The student-to-teacher ratio in special education is now greater than the overall student-to-teacher ratio, suggesting that students with disabilities spend more time with general educators than with special educators.

How will the fiscal crisis impact this sector? And what kind of higher-education system do we want? How does mainstreaming benefit students with disabilities? Peterson to discuss the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U. Supreme Court. Do the exam schools produce academically outstanding graduates, or do they simply admit stellar students and enjoy credit for their successes?

Changes in private school enrollment may have to do with the widespread closures of Catholic schools, which had relatively low tuitions. According to new analyses, the positive associations between NAEP scores and earlier pre-K enrollment are small and typically not statistically significant. While Washington, D. Has expanding income inequality led to an increased concentration of affluent families at private schools? States have imposed a variety of rules on teacher candidates and the programs that seek to license them, with the goal of ensuring that all new teachers are ready to succeed on their first day in the classroom.

New research challenges the very assumptions underlying these efforts. Leading Educators is a nonprofit working with over teacher leaders to transform professional learning for over 2, teachers. But is government-funded pre-K the surest way to provide the opportunity for all children to succeed in school and life? Students in Washington, D. Peterson to discuss his new report, which takes a close look those changes. For the purpose of awarding need-based aid, what matters most is increasing financial aid applications among those most likely to be eligible for financial aid.

Supporters of increased investments in state pre-K need to confront the evidence that it does not enhance student achievement meaningfully, if at all. It may, of course, have positive impacts on other outcomes. Students in relatively affluent districts are more likely to have access to the one-on-one assistance that helps students submit the FAFSA, enroll in college, and receive more financial aid. Detailed lesson guides are an effective way to approach instructional design and an empowering way to support teachers. In , the percentage of black and Hispanic students at TJ was at a high of 9.

How did the school district get itself into such a financial hole and what might it do to get out of it? Colleges need to be ready for a world in which considering race in college admissions is no longer legal. On the John Batchelor show, Paul E. Peterson talks about research on what happens when a school enrolls refugee students, and in particular, how this affects the non-refugee children who had already been attending the school. In an attempt to close the excellence gap, the admissions guidelines were revised in to include a sliding scale.

On Friday, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by Detroit students who argued that they had been denied access to literacy because of the condition of their schools. There is increasing momentum behind the idea that curriculum materials, including textbooks, represent a powerful lever for education reform. When ambitious foundation efforts go south in ways that cause headaches and problems for the rest of us, it can be hard to tell if anyone is ever held accountable.

On the last day of its term, the U. Supreme Court ruled in Janus vs. Peterson to discuss why the U. Supreme Court felt it was necessary to overrule a decision from the s allowing agency fees. This report identifies some specific challenges faced by this approach. In addition to being content instructors, we also expect teachers to be curriculum designers, assessment creators, and experts at evaluating student work and analyzing student learning data, not to mention experts in classroom management and culture, coaching students on self-management, providing students with social and emotional support, and being the primary school connection with parents and families.

Marianno and Katharine O. Strunk that was published recently in Education Next. When it comes to agency fees, the nays have it by a clear majority. Teachers are starting to use voice-powered devices like Alexa in the classroom, though privacy advocates have raised some concerns. Michael Horn considers some of the larger ways that voice assistants might disrupt the classroom. The first film was spot-on when it came to exploring adolescent angst, giftedness, and how parents wrestle with simultaneously protecting their kids and pushing them out into the world.

Charter schools have been in the news lately, as supporters and opponents have debated whether they are expanding opportunities for students most in need or whether they are increasing segregation. The real story here is the many insights about implementation—what actually happened on the ground—based on rich qualitative and survey data.

Differences in student and family background characteristics can account for about half of the black-white gap in default rates on student loans. TalkingPoints is a messaging app used by , families and teachers in over 3, schools that aims to improve parent-teacher communication—especially for parents who are non-English speakers.

Higher-education institutions have to stay accredited for their students to be able to use federal subsidies to pay for college. While there is no one right pathway to implementing blended or personalized learning, systems do seem to face a consistent set of implementation challenges, regardless of context. Researchers find that growth-mindset increased but that social awareness, self-efficacy, and self-management decreased as students progressed through school. Pushing schools to use evidence poses a real risk that school leaders will feel pressure to choose approaches that have been easier to evaluate, rather than those that are the most central to improving educational practice.

Department of Education rarely hold accreditors accountable for their outcomes. In San Diego, one in ten students attends a magnet school, and because admission is sometimes determined by lottery, researchers have been able to study the impact of attending a magnet school on long-term outcomes. Peterson to discuss his research on magnet schools in San Diego.

These figures suggest that, in right-to-work states, teachers unions lost power not only in numbers, but also in terms of dollar resources. A higher-education institution has to participate in an accreditation review every five to ten years to stay accredited. Over the course of years, accreditors transformed from voluntary college associations into the gatekeepers for billions of dollars of public aid.

Are graduates of private schools as active in the public sphere as graduates of public schools? David Sikkink, an associate professor of sociology at Notre Dame, finds that when it comes to volunteering and charitable giving, graduates of private religious schools are more likely to be engaged. He joins Paul E. Peterson to discuss his research.

Toward Incentives for Military Transformation

Small group instruction is ubiquitous in elementary schools when it comes to reading, but not for math. This study provides some preliminary evidence that small group instruction may be a promising approach for math instruction as well. An upcoming Supreme Court decision might end the controversial practice of allowing public-sector unions to collect agency fees. These sites had mixed to modest gains in student achievement, though educators report greater student ownership of learning and fewer disciplinary problems. Later this month, the Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling in Janus v.

AFSCME on whether public sector unions should be allowed to collect agency fees from employees who choose not to join the union. The Court heard a similar case two years ago, Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association. Marty West talks with Rebecca Friedrichs, the lead plaintiff in that case, about agency fees, unions, and what to expect after Janus.

As the rising costs of tuition and fees outpace increases in financial aid and student debt skyrockets, there has never been a more critical time to bring innovation to our higher education system. The mayor hopes to eliminate the admissions test altogether, but doing this will require the approval of the state legislature. A new analysis by Education Next finds that the state that has raised its proficiency standards the most over the past 10 years is Tennessee.

Welcome back

Peterson to discuss how her state has raised its standards and made other changes to advance student learning. These resources would be better spent on aid that encourages students to enroll in and complete an undergraduate degree. Researchers at Education Next have graded state proficiency standards on an A—F scale since An interview with Matthew Kraft, an assistant professor of education and economics at Brown University who has researched teacher evaluation reform extensively. Critically, more than two-thirds of students attending schools backed by Silicon Schools are from low-income families.

In , a Florida law eliminated tenure for teachers hired on or after July 1, A new study looks at the impact of that change on student achievement in the state. An analysis of state proficiency standards. This report presents new analyses of state-average NAEP data that attempt to address the limitation of changing samples of students by following cohorts of students from 4th grade in a given year to 8th grade four years later.

Prepare U is a new health curriculum for to year-old students designed to address mental-health awareness and help users navigate the challenges of adolescence. The relatively close alignment between state and national assessments represents a major improvement from when the Common Core initiative began. We do not find any evidence that private school voucher students are either less or more likely to vote in presidential elections than students educated in public schools.

Should we try to make schools more engaging? Use external exams to hold students accountable for their learning? On Tuesday, May 22, Education Next presented the results of its latest evaluation of the rigor of state proficiency standards at an event hosted by the Hoover Institution. Since , researchers at Education Next have graded state proficiency standards on an A—F scale.

This makes it harder to find common ground. Schools are paying increasing attention to the problem of truancy, and many states are including an indicator measuring chronic absenteeism in their accountability plans for the Every Student Succeeds Act. Peterson talks with Peter Bergman about the phenomenon of joint absences, when students have a peer with whom they systematically skip class.

If policymakers want to hold preparation programs accountable for the quality of their graduates, there may be better ways to do it. On Wednesday, May 30, , the Urban Institute will host a panel discussion on how states can make changes to their school funding systems.

It turns out to be extremely hard to formulate any sort of coherent plan for reform at the high school level, and harder still to implement it. When reporting on similar studies, does the media pay more attention to those that are more negative about school choice? For a brief period, states were required to rank their teacher education programs based in part on how much their graduates were boosting student test scores. Paul von Hippel and Laura Bellows find that if programs are ranked on value-added scores, then the differences between the programs are typically too small to matter.

Democracy Prep increases the voter registration rates of its students by about 16 percentage points and increases the voting rates of its students by about 12 percentage points. The Trump administration may undo regulations that punish for-profit colleges if their graduates are unable to earn enough money to repay their student loans.

The authors of a new study discuss the impact on student enrollment in for-profit colleges and community colleges when the federal government cracks down on for-profit colleges with high rates of students defaulting on their loans. Rising costs are creating substantial economic anxiety among teachers and possibly affecting their teaching practice. The student population increased far more rapidly than state spending during the same period of time.

As more and more school systems across the country explore competency-based education, we need to be attentive to the processes that will actually allow such innovations to thrive. In Maryland, Gov. Larry Hogan has signed a bill that will make community college free. Even though states are spending more overall on higher education, these increases have not kept pace with enrollment growth.

In many states, teacher pay has stagnated or even declined in recent years. The rising cost of maintaining teacher retirement systems is part of the problem. Chad Aldeman joins Marty West to discuss the increasing cost of teacher benefits, how this affects teacher take-home pay, and what teachers gain and lose under the current system. A new federal tax incentive could hold the key to spurring billions of dollars in investment in low-income areas with limited access to quality public charter school options.

Now it wants to expand the model. The teacher strikes have quickly gone from a plucky fight over paychecks to an increasingly polarizing progressive crusade over tax and spending policy. A little over a decade ago, a new government in the United Kingdom issued a report recommending that early reading instruction include phonics. What has been the impact of that change in approach to teaching reading? Martina Viarengo, the author of a study on this topic, joins Paul Peterson to discuss her research. We would like graduates to meet standards for graduation and not simply leave the system with a piece of paper and deficient skills.

Michael Sonbert, founder of Skyrocket Educator Training, trains teachers and leaders in urban and turnaround schools. The increase in Medicaid spending is the single biggest contributor to the decline in higher-education support at the state and local level. In Chalkbeat, Monica Disare looks at how one state has tried to uphold rigorous standards for high school graduation when not all students are going to be able to meet those standards.

The Program on Education Policy and Governance at Harvard hosted a conference last month on the long-term effects of choice. Doug Webber looks at state spending decisions to determine the relationship between higher-education funding declines and increases in other categories. What we really need is a single organization with an integrated solution to show us how to do personalized learning and teacher development really well.

The cost of college is rising, in part because of declines in state support for higher education. But what explains those declines? Some of the frustrations that have bedeviled reforms were foreseeable. After a devastating earthquake struck Haiti in January , thousands of Haitians moved to the U. Peterson to discuss his research on the impact these Haitian refugee students had on the non-refugee students who were already attending those schools.

Taxpayers have filed for over thirty billion dollars in credits and deductions for college expenses they paid in How do we ensure that students in self-directed, customized environments still master skills and content that we think critical, but that they may deem tedious, pointless, and unnecessary? We conducted six formal statistical tests of the hypothesis that school choice test score impacts reliably predict future attainment impacts. Five of the tests did not support the hypothesis. We have subjected our initial findings to a variety of robustness tests, all of which they passed.

While there is no set script for charter leaders to follow as they consider the next chapter for their organizations, there are proven processes, tools, and best practices they can access to chart their course. The Education Without Walls program run by the National Center for Outdoor and Adventure Education gives chronically homeless students in North Carolina the chance to learn from outdoor experiences like camping trips. But how much are individual households spending to send a child to a center-based program when no one is helping them pay?

As the charter school sector grows, there is more emphasis on replicating school models with a track record of success and less emphasis on single-site schools that increase the variety of schooling options. This week, Derrell Bradford joins EdNext editor-in-chief Marty West to discuss his article, what can be done to support single-site schools, and why it matters.

Review of studies finds few situations where school choice boosts long-term outcomes but not short-term ones. Negative headlines about DCPS may be drowning out the story of the success of public charter schools in D. Students who drop out rack up debt without getting the benefits that come with having earned a degree. A new tax credit scholarship program comes about due to a perfect storm of politics, budget crises, a politically savvy cardinal, and patient philanthropy. We know that a handful of school choice programs as a whole worsened achievement but improved graduation rates.

Peterson to discuss efforts to bring education savings accounts and full-day kindergarten to his state. Knowing what families of different income and educational levels are currently paying for daycare can inform policy debates over how much taxpayers should spend to help families afford it. Charter school principals are more diverse than principals of district schools, but far less diverse than the students they serve.

The impacts of school choice programs on test score gains and longer term outcomes are not really as out of sync as they may first appear. Richard Rusczyk is the founder of the Art of Problem Solving AoPS , a math curriculum and online learning community that supports students who excel in math. Results for early-college high schools, selective-admission exam schools, and career and technical programs are different from those of the charter and voucher schools normally included in such studies.

Over one million students drop out of college each year, and colleges do little to bring them back. Increasingly, single-site charter schools appear to suffer a higher burden of proof to justify their existence, relative to CMOs. Do teachers know enough about how students think and what motivates them?

Daniel Willingham thinks that ed schools are not giving teachers enough useful information about how children learn. Chicago also narrowed its test-score gap between white students and Hispanic students in 4th-grade math and 4th-grade reading. No other participating district saw its achievement gaps narrow. The recent mass shooting in Parkland, Fla. Instead of just looking at the effect teachers have on the test scores of their students, researchers have expanded their focus to include the impact of teachers on student attendance and the long-run outcomes of their students.

Seth Gershenson joins Paul E. Peterson to discuss the latest findings on the impact teachers have on their students. New research challenges the notion that ESSA has fewer federal regulations than previous iterations of the federal K—12 law. The expansion to private K schools will primarily benefit affluent families, produce limited incentives for promoting private school choice, and come at a nontrivial cost to states. Zach Marks is the founder of Grom Social, an anti-bullying social media platform for kids that has 13 million users across countries.

There was no significant score change in compared to in 4th-grade math, 4th-grade reading, and 8th-grade math. ESSA gives school districts the opportunity to change the way they leverage federal dollars to support disadvantaged students.
