Many researchers indicated that school principal's leadership role is critical to the effectiveness of schools in their effort towards including all children in mainstream education (Marzano, Walters, McNulty, 2005; Lambert, 2002; Wagner, Kegan, Lahey, Lemons, Garnier, Helsing, Howell, and Rasmussen, 2006,). Indeed, catering for diversity demands a strong leadership that can build a positive school culture that welcomes every child. School principals can play an important role in promoting and sustaining change in schools by shaping school culture. Without their efforts schools can't improve to become better places where all students are welcome, and where all students learn essential academic and non- academic school experience in preparation for life in the community (Salisbury and McGregore, 2005; Anderson, 1999).

The north of Iran is one of the main regions for agricultural production but the occurred precipitation is insufficient to meet wheat requirement. Consequently, supplemental irrigation is necessary for obtaining potential yield of wheat in rainfed areas. In addition, nitrogen fertilization can improve water use efficiency in such areas. Therefore, supplemental irrigation and nitrogen fertilization effects on production of winter wheat under rainfed climate condition were investigated in this book. Soil and water researchers, engineers and students can use findings of this study.

Mara Casey Tieken Why Rural Schools Matter

From headlines to documentaries, urban schools are at the center of current debates about education. From these accounts, one would never know that 51 million Americans live in rural communities and depend on their public schools to meet not only educational but also social and economic needs. For many communities, these schools are the ties that bind. Why Rural Schools Matter shares the untold story of rural education. Drawing upon extensive research in two southern towns, Mara Tieken exposes the complicated ways in which schools shape the racial dynamics of their towns and sustain the communities that surround them. The growing power of the state, however, brings the threat of rural school closure, which jeopardizes the education of children and the future of communities. With a nuanced understanding of the complicated relationship between communities and schools, Tieken warns us that current education policies--which narrow schools' purpose to academic achievement alone--endanger rural America and undermine the potential of a school, whether rural or urban, to sustain a community. Vividly demonstrating the effects of constricted definitions of public education in an era of economic turmoil and widening inequality, Tieken calls for a more contextual approach to education policymaking, involving both state and community.

This book looks at motion of particles using mathematical methods of physical observable values in General Relativity. It is shown that aside for mass-bearing particles and light-like particles "zero-particles" can exist in fully degenerated space-time (zero-space). For a regular observer zero-particles move instantly, thus transferring long-range action. Further we show existence of two separate areas in unhomogeneous space-time, where observable time flows into future and into past, while this duality is not found in homogeneous space-time. These areas are referred to as our world, where time flows into future and as the mirror Universe, where time flows in past. The areas are separated with a space-time membrane, referred to as zero-space, where observable time stops.

The paper recognizes the trivial participation of African countries in the Dispute Settlement System (DSS) of the World Trade Organization (WTO). One of the main factors contributing to this state of affairs is identified as the absence of a platform for stakeholders to participate in consultation with their government(s). It is argued that such a platform will allow the members states to make an informed decision on whether it is in the national interest to be a party to the initiation of a dispute before the Dispute settlement body (DSB) or to join as a party to such a dispute, either as complainant or respondent. The paper identifies the advantages/benefits which may be derived from participating in the DSS, especially with stakeholders input in the process before, during and after the dispute cycle. From the analysis practical processes are suggested which can enhance active participation of various stakeholders in developing countries, with an emphasis on Sub-Saharan Africa. The paper concludes by suggesting a suitable legal framework for stakeholders to utilize and participate in the initiation of trade disputes where their interests are threatened or adversely affected.

Many studies provide evidence that professional learning communities are a valid means for school reform in public education. These studies may be even more important since schools are facing more pressure than ever to meet high academic performance benchmarks. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to discover teacher perceptions toward a professional learning community and teacher perceptions of instructional practice in a middle school in a southern U.S. state. The results of this study indicated that teachers have a positive perception of learning communities, instructional practice, effective communication, collaboration, shared leadership practices, and the use of common assessments. Teachers, principals, and superintendents may use the results of this study to promote the creation of professional learning communities. The results of this study can lead to positive social change by providing an alternative school culture encouraging a positive perception among teachers that leads to improved instructional practice which can impact student learning

Although goat production occurs throughout the country, goat milk production is limited and is only undertaken in the semi-arid regions in the south western parts of the country. Dairy goat production has been gaining popularity in many countries around the world in the recent years among the small scale farmers.There,however, has not been much attention given to goat milk production in the smallholder areas despite its nutritional, health, and potential for niche export markets. This book therefore ascertains the primary reasons for keeping goats in smallholder areas where goats are milked, determines and analyzes the socio-economic factors influencing goat milk production.The book shows the potential that exist to stimulate goat milk production in the smallholder areas targeting improved disease control through accessibility of veterinary medicines and vaccines.Government and research organizations can deliberately formulate strategies to introduce improved goat milk breeds and promote the development of para-veterinary programs as a way of diversifying income sources and promoting the development and eventual commercialization of goat milk production in Zimbabwe.

Thèse de Bachelor de l'année 2011 dans le domaine Politique - Politique internationale - Sujet: Union européenne, note: 1, , langue: Français, résumé: The utility of music tends to be undervalued by states. To examine this topic, I focused on the potential for shared musical experiences to reinforce national identities and bolster intercultural dialogue. In exploring music policy, I looked at the consequences and dynamics of music's potential to unify people under political communities in the collective setting of festivals, particularly La Fête de la Musique in France. This project also examines two other important music festivals: European Music Day in Greece and The Varna Music Festival in Bulgaria. These cases illustrate the utility of national music festivals in reaching individuals at a personal level, especially when they emphasize individual creativity and participation; these interactive musical experiences can then be connected to a single, macrocosmic source where they are institutionalized. Moreover, music's unique ability to communicate ideas and emotions across linguistic barriers creates linkages that transcend the nation. I then took these analyses of national music festivals to the European level. Along with the potential replication of the benefits of national music festivals, a European music festival would be able to strengthen the idea of unity of diversity of citizens under the European Union. My project suggests that public music festivals c...

A volume in International Research on School LeadershipSeries Editors Alan R. Shoho and Bruce G. Barnett, University of Texas at San AntonioOur fourth book in the International Research on School Leadership series focuses on school leadership in an era of highstakes accountability. Fueled by sweeping federal education accountability reforms, such as the United States' No ChildLeft Behind (NCLB) and Race to the Top (R2T) and Australia's Performance Measurement and Reporting Taskforce,school systems around the world are being forced to increase academic standards, participate in high-stakes testing, andraise evaluation standards for teachers and principals. These results-driven reforms are intended to hold educators"accountable for student learning and accountable to the public" (Anderson, 2005, p. 2, emphasis in original). Whilepolicymakers and the public debate the merits of student achievement accountability measures, P-12 educational leaders do not have the luxury to wait for clear guidanceand resources to improve their schools and operating systems. Instead, successful leaders must balance the need to create learning communities, manage theorganizational climate, and encourage community involvement with the consequences testing has on teacher morale and public scrutiny. The chapters in this volumeclearly indicate that as school leaders attend to these potentially competing forces, this affects their problem-solving strategies, ability to facilitate change, ...

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Africa, grade: 1,3, Hertie School of Governance (Master of Public Policy), course: Governance in Areas of Limited Statehood, language: English, abstract: (...) While Western economists and politicians discuss whether more or less migration benefits their countries, the other side of the medal, namely the impact of massive labour outflows on sending communities, is seldom devoted much attention (...). Every migrant that leaves an African country for another or for a destination off the continent takes valuable labour and economic potential away fromthe sending community. This questions in how far vulnerable states will invest in education and youth employment when they see the return on their investments wander to new shores. Moreover, traditional ways of life are questioned when a great part of the young population departs and leaves the less mobile to care for themselves. Failing and failed states are today to a great extent kept alive by remittances from migrants abroad. On the one hand, this might be the only way that people who stayed can survive in a war-torn economy but on the other hand it might also ease the population's deception with dictatorships and incapable political leaders and therefore impede necessary social uproar. (...).Many of these specifics impacts of the African migration flows on the sendingn communities will be illuminated in the following (...). Various t...

This book deals with applications in several areas of science and technology that make use of light which carries orbital angular momentum. In most practical scenarios, the angular momentum can be decomposed into two independent contributions: the spin angular momentum and the orbital angular momentum. The orbital contribution affords a fundamentally new degree of freedom, with fascinating and wide-spread applications. Unlike spin angular momentum, which is associated with the polarization of light, the orbital angular momentum arises as a consequence of the spatial distribution of the intensity and phase of an optical field, even down to the single photon limit. Researchers have begun to appreciate its implications for our understanding of the ways in which light and matter can interact, and its practical potential in different areas of science and technology.

Evidence, Ethos and Experiment. The Anthropology and History of Medical Research in Africa

4964 руб.
Medical research has been central to biomedicine in Africa for over a century, and Africa, along with other tropical areas, has been crucial to the development of medical science. At present, study populations in Africa participate in an increasing number of medical research projects and clinical trials, run by both public institutions and private companies. Global debates about the politics and ethics of this research are growing and local concerns are prompting calls for social studies of the "trial communities" produced by this scientific work. Drawing on rich, ethnographic and historiographic ---material, this volume represents the emergent field of anthropological inquiry that links Africanist ethnography to recent concerns with science, the state, and the culture of late capitalism in Africa.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Pedagogy - Orthopaedagogy and Special Education, Bielefeld University, language: English, abstract: "Asperger: a syndrome between autism and normality" / "The Oops-Wrong-Planet syndrome". Both terms describe the same syndrome. The affected children oscillate between the poles of normality and otherness and try to find a place in society in their own way and with their own needs and abilities.Their intellectual potential often makes them capable of going to a regular school - however, their particular social and communication behavior alters their social interactions with the others: consequently, the daily school routine of many children is associated with tension and mishaps. It often occurs that they become socially isolated and inappropriately encouraged, so they can neither develop their talents nor keep positive memories of their school time.The future inclusive school has the task of adopting all children without any hierarchy and satisfying the individual needs of each. However, how can the inclusive school be conceived as a pleasant place and associated with success from the viewpoint of these children? Under what conditions can it adjust to their exceptionality and encourage them in a productive way?These are the research questions that will be driving this work. They attempt to analyze the daily school routine from "aspergic" perspectives and reveal the conditions for adequate learning programs ...

Zygmunt Bauman On Education. Conversations with Riccardo Mazzeo

3854.44 руб.
What is the role of education in a world where we no longer have a clear vision of the future and where the idea of a single, universal model of humanity seems like the residue of a bygone age? What role should educators play in a world where young people find themselves faced with deep uncertainty about their future, where the prospects of securing a stable, long-term career seem increasingly remote and where intensified population movements have created more diverse communities in which different cultures find themselves living side by side, no longer bound together by the belief that the other would eventually be assimilated into ‘our' culture? Faced with the bewildering features of our liquid modern world, many young people are inclined to withdraw – in some cases into the online world of games and virtual relationships, in other cases into anorexia, depression, alcohol or even drug abuse, hoping to find shelter from a world perceived as more and more dangerous. Others launch into more violent forms of behaviour, like street gangs and the looting carried out by young people who have been excluded from the temples of consumption but are eager to participate in the ceremony. And all this happens while our politicians look on, uncomprehending and indifferent. In this short book Zygmunt Bauman – the leading social theorist of our liquid modern world, here in conversation with Riccardo Mazzeo – reflects on the predicament of young people today and on the role of education and the educator in a world where the certainties of our predecessors can no longer be taken for granted.

In the process, she developed the Academic Club Methodology, by which children with learning disabilities can be engaged and inspired in school, where they had previously suffered only frustration and defeat. While directing the Lab School, Smith taught her system and ran the master's program in special education at American University for 32 years, inspiring a new generation of teachers to pioneer innovations in education. Smith also wrote books, starting with ""No Easy Answers"" in the late 70s and in various editions thereafter, that serve as the definitive works in the special education field. Smith was driven, creative, unique, and unforgettable.

It is not a new web standard, no new innovative product of Apple, no net movement or revolution. In fact, it is a paraphrase for the new active role of users. The technological progress makes it possible that users participate in internet actively. Their role changed from a watching to a creating one. New tools and features enabled users to generate content. With other new websites, social community websites came up using these new possibilities. By now, social communities like Facebook or studiVZ have millions of members. The huge acceptance on users' side made those websites a real trend in web 2.0. The huge number of users makes social communities to an interesting business. Experts say that social communities are not only a trend, but also an important business in future. Although there are already some established companies acting on the market for social communities, the market will see a lot of new social communities in the next years. There are only a few general social communities dividing up the market. And there are enough topics which are not occupied as yet. Only those social communities will beat the competition and will remain, which are able to gener...

This thesis examines the types of food within the National School Lunch Program that is provided to elementary school aged children in The United States of America and the link that these foods have to contributing to childhood obesity rates. Further explored are the physical education practices that these children participate in daily or weekly during the school day. An additional component to this thesis are the personal food consumption choices that these children make at home. The research participants were compared by ethnic groups which enabled the researcher to compile data that mirrored the obesity rates and trends provided in current data. There were many elements that lead to the conclusions of this research study. One factor that compromised the findings were the sample size as well as the lunch choices each individual made during the school week. Another element was that the research participants participated in physical activity on a daily basis at school and home.
