Journalists may be told that teachers need to focus on skills because that’s what students are tested on. The reading passages on standardized tests don’t match up with the content students are learning—assuming they’re learning content at all—-so it looks like what is being assessed are kids’ general abilities to find the main idea” or make inferences.” In fact, if students lack the knowledge and vocabulary to understand the passages in the first place—as many do—they won’t have a chance to demonstrate any skills.” But it can be hard for teachers to absorb that message, especially when their job ratings and those of their schools are tied to test scores.

Two first-term members of the Utah State Board of Education have announced they will resign because they are moving out of state: Alisa Ellis of Heber, who represents District 12 and LIsa Cummins of Herriman, who represents District 11.

Wall to wall career academies and a transition program for ninth graders have helped create an environment at this Texas high school in which rigorous, relevant education, inside and outside of the classroom, is the norm for all students. Intermediate and final assessments are ensured to advance students to the next learning phase. The education establishment, including schools of education and textbook publishers, have largely pooh-poohed” the idea of knowledge, observed panelist Sonja Santelises, chief executive officer of the Baltimore public schools.

The Senate budget bill, as filed, adds $2.4 billion to cover projected enrollment growth over the next two years, but also $6 billion above that to pay for increased teacher compensation and to offset whatever revenue is lost by any property tax reform measures that become law.

I mentioned that I’d spoken with teachers at such schools who told me that many students are, for example, unable to locate the United States on a map of the world or unaware the United States had a War of Independence—because the curriculum at their elementary and middle schools had narrowed to reading and math.

Technology has moved at a fast pace over the last decade. Study on thermoluminescence and its applications in radioactive dosimetry and dating (Archaeological). Projects should be justified in terms of potential biomedical impact, but should not include any application to specific biomedical research questions. Technology or social media topics are something that everyone wants to investigate because so many of us are worried about our own use of phone and social media.

The University of Maine’s Forest Bioproducts Research Institute’s new Technology Research Center (TRC) validates, demonstrates, and helps commercialize developing fuel, chemical and advanced material technologies from forest bioproducts at an industrially relevant scale.

Burkhardt and Schoenfeld (2003) emphasized that educational research is in desperate need of …cumulativity through studies that build on previous work” (p. 8). However, due to what Mosteller, Nave, and Miech (2004) called the sprawling nature of education research” (p. 29), this objective is difficult.

Cooperation with domestic and foreign scientific organizations in high level science-technology training of human resources to meet the regional demand.
