Adopting Through Foster Care: a Less Expensive Alternative
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News

Feb 24, 2015
“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Children's Bureau reports that nearly 400,000 American children were in foster care in 2012, and about a quarter of those were waiting to be adopted. Many potential adoptive parents don't realize that "because these children are in the custody of the county or the state, that county or state covers all those court costs that an individual would pay for a private agency," explains Rita Soronen, president and CEO of the nonprofit Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Parents may need to pay upfront for a home study (when a social worker interviews the family in their home), she adds, but typically those costs can be reimbursed through workplace adoption benefits, military adoption benefits or adoption tax credits. The majority of children adopted through foster care receive a financial or medical subsidy from their state until they reach the age of majority in that state, and many states offer college tuition waivers for adopted youth, which can further reduce a family's costs, Soronen adds.”

Weather-battered schools turn to virtual days for students
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News

Feb 21, 2015
“By Steve Bittenbender LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Reuters) - Hundreds of thousands of U.S. students stayed home this week due to snow and freezing temperatures, but some kids were not able to spend the day sledding or watching TV.     School districts from Oklahoma to Kentucky to Massachusetts kept students busy in virtual classrooms by assigning work online that was monitored by their teachers. Younger students or those without computers were not left out. Many of those students received paper materials on the day before bad weather was forecast.     The school districts are trying virtual classes because of the concern that too many bad-weather days mean losing instruction time, lengthening school days or extending the school year deep into the summer, school officials said. "Having these online learning days helps to avoid those gaps," said Dee Dee Nauert, who teaches fifth and sixth graders at Notre Dame Academy in Louisville.”

Teachers to Game Makers: Slavery’s Not for Fun

Critics say the game, Mission U.S.: Flight to Freedom, sanitizes the brutal institution that was founded on racism and enforced through beating, torture, rape, and murder. Rafranz Davis, an education technology specialist and blogger in the Ft. Worth, Texas, area, is spearheading a social media campaign against the game, which some educators are using as part of their Black History Month lessons. Davis says Mission U.S.: Flight to Freedom dumbs down history, eliminates historical context, doesn’t challenge students, and tries to make something “fun,” out of an American atrocity.”

Philadelphia could get first new charter schools in seven years

“By Daniel Kelley PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Philadelphia's financially distressed school district, one of the country's biggest battlegrounds over the expansion of charter schools, will learn on Wednesday whether new charter schools will be approved for the first time in seven years. The Philadelphia School Reform Commission, formed in 2001 as part of a state takeover of the city's education system due to financial problems and low test scores, is slated to vote on applications for 39 charter schools. The district already has 86 charter institutions, public schools that operate independently and offer an alternative to schools run by the local school district. Proponents say charters can help get students out of low-performing schools, while critics blame them for worsening the district's finances. The American Federation of Teachers has fought against the nation's expansion of mostly non-unionized charter schools, including in Philadelphia.”

Strauss: The famous ‘word gap’ doesn’t hurt only the young. It affects many educators, too.
by Education: DC Area Education News, Education Policy, School Information - The Washington Post

Feb 18, 2015
“You have probably heard about what is called the “word gap” found in many low-income children, who were found in a famous 1995 research study to be exposed to 30 million fewer words than their more fortunate peers by age 3, and that this deficit affects literacy development. The word gap has been cited by many experts as a key reason that at-risk children need focused literacy instruction. In this post, Elizabeth A. Gilbert explains that there is a related problem: Many  early childhood educators have the same problem. Gilbert is the coordinator of the “Learn at Work Early Childhood Educator Program Labor” in the Labor Management Workplace Education Center  at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.Read full article >>”

How High School Teachers, Parents Can Encourage Teens to Read for Fun
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News

Feb 17, 2015
“Only 19 percent of 17-year-olds read for fun every day in 2012 -- down from 31 percent in 1984, according to a 2014 report from Common Sense Media, a media and technology education and advocacy organization. "If we can get them to enjoy reading, the reality is their reading skills are going to improve overall," says Megan Knight, associate principal of instruction at Elk Grove High School in Illinois. Help high schoolers find books that interest them: Not every student wants to read the same thing, says Knight. Teachers could work with librarians to find books that meet curriculum requirements, but give teens a variety of options to choose from, says Chris Shoemaker, president of the Young Adult Library Services Association.”
