scoop-Isn't it you that get accused of reporting false information all the time on this site? I believe this topic may be over your head. Seriously, who doesn't discuss hypotheticals? I've probably forgotten more facts and information from studies that you've ever known. I will no longer attempt to discuss topics with you, as you have proven not to be worthy. Good day.
Great big copout from a know nothing. Naturally you can't remember anything of any importance. Help for dementia is available for you coots. Take it.

If you can't handle the truth, ironman, leave. Many studies have been proven lacking and apparently you can't tell the difference or even remember as you admitted otherwise you wouldn't get your crap in an uproar. Thats the way you liberals do, start losing a subject, then attack opposing opinions and get off subject.

I think most studies show that the US is getting our hinnie kicked by other countries when it comes to education. Last thing I looked at, Singapore ranked the highest in math - here we are suppose to be the most powerful nation that has ever been and we can't even figure out how to educate children. We do not have the brightest and best going into education - we should pay more money, but place some high standards. A 2.75 GPA and a low ACT score is a sad requirement for teaching our children. If we pop that GPA up to a 3 and the ACT score to 25 or better, we will see some better results. From my graduating class,I know four people that made teachers. One was a great student and was a great teacher, one was a good student - 2 were slow students. One of them was in high school for extra years and was a joke for a teacher.

Maybe they can answer these RELEVANT questions?

Are there too many subjects that doesn't aid in finding employment?
Is the activity/concept too challenging?
Does the child have the prior knowledge required?
Does the child have difficulty sustaining attention?
Is the child able to focus?
Is the time on task too long for the child?
Is it a medical, physical or mental problem?
Alternate strategies are often required when a student has been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD.
Is the child lacking motivation or is the child lethargic?
If the child is lethargic, do you know why?
Is the child able to work on the task independently?
Does the child fully understand what is expected? Does the child have the prior knowledge needed to move forward with the current learning activity?
Is the activity meaningful?
Does the child understand why they are doing the activity? Using a differentiated approach is most helpful.

It is important to try to determine the 'why' behind a child who isn't learning. When teaching, stick to the Model, Practice and Reinforce model. It is also important to differentiate instruction and to use multiple intelligence theory to maximize all student's learning strenghts.
All students can learn given the right amount of time and support. If you are committed to student learning, learning will happen. When learning doesn't happen, find out why and address those needs. Don't concern yourself with studies.

Well, It will be interesting what TEEL (Leonard Dunnum) has to say about this soon. Yep, he has heard about this stuff and he is coming soon to give you his side. And he is not happy with the remarks he has heard about.

Me...liberal??? Haha!!! I'm the one trying to discuss something and scoop won't because it's over his head. And, I can promise that anonymous posters on a website will never get me in an uproar. So, do you have anything useful concerning this topic, KatKos? If so, go for it. Or, be like scoop.

Ok. Something useful. You get a second chance.:) And, I agree with your opinion here. But I also know studies are done to learn and determine the "why" and "how" we're discussing. I review studies and learn from them, whether it be what to do or not to do.

Technology, safety, and demographics/population have dramatically changed in the last 20 years. Public education must modernize/adapt to address those issues. Those are the 3 major issues that the passing of the recent bond will help.

B for busted: Students changed grades by tampering with professors' keyboards

After four years of altering grades using credentials gained with keylogger equipment installed on professors' keyboards, three Purdue University students were finally busted when one of those professors complained that one of his passwords mysteriously changed.

Surprise Surprise the George County Times actually had a little negativity in their Proposed School Budget article - "The bond issue was tax neutral only if one ignores the promise made 20 years ago to let the tax ncrease approved at that time "sunset" or return to the pre-high school tax rate". Mr Armstrong's article is right that people may not be happy about the tax increase, but one thing for sure Ms Harrell does not care.
