Video: Steve Nash high school basketball highlights
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News

Mar 27, 2015
“Steve Nash High School Highlights 6,534 views1:28 Video: Steve Nash high school highlights See the two-time NBA MVP in his high school days in Canada. Every scrawny, under-appreciated, below-the-rim high school player has an idol ... a role model ... a vision. He is Steve Nash. Born in South Africa — now there's a start most NBA hopefuls don't consider — his family settled in Victoria, British Columbia, another professional basketball not-so-hotbed. He played soccer and hockey as a youth but told his mom he would someday play in the NBA. Imagine the laughter. But after he averaged 21.3 points, 11.2 assists and 9.1 rebounds for St. Michael's University School, a free college education seemed like a nice possibility. Of course, no one bit on at a wiry 6-foot Canadian kid until Santa Clara coach Dick Davey requested a highlight tape. I mean, what the heck, eh? Despite Davey telling Nash he was "the worst defensive player" he'd ever seen, he took a chance on the lad. And we all know what happened from there. Two-time West Coast Conference Player of the Year. Eight-time NBA All-Star. Two-time NBA MVP. C'mon. Sounds like a fairy tale. The final words were written today when Nash officially retired. Lucky for all those scrawny high school kids searching for a dream, his career is always available in books, the internet and television sets everywhere.”

A Wealth Building Plan for You: Growing Family Edition

“College tuition, retirement and caring for a parent head the list of things you need to set money aside for. Although nothing is technically "free," this is a great benefit to have included in your compensation package, as your retirement contribution is essentially doubling. An individual retirement account, or IRA, is a great way to save for retirement if you are either self-employed, or want to simply bolster your savings. Traditional IRA: With a traditional IRA, you contribute pretax dollars, then pay taxes when you withdraw the money later, like a traditional 401(k).”

College Students to Veteran Educators: Quit Telling Us to Avoid Teaching
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News

Mar 27, 2015
“We don’t need your protection, we need you to stay strong and stand up for what you know is right,” wrote Rivera. “ ‘Thank you for writing this post! I thought I was the only person who felt that way!’ ” The feedback, she says, led her to realize that aspiring teachers “shouldn’t be working individually, but we should come together” as a unified force to push education reform. A year later, that idea and her blog post have become the blueprint for the Young Teachers Collective, an effort that Rivera and six other aspiring educators launched last week. Blending advocacy and vision with support-group nurturing and old-fashioned union-style organization, YTC calls for a “common vision for the future of education.” The initiative also hopes to “provide young teachers with both a sense of hope and tools on how to fight for a better education system.” That includes helping educators develop “political consciousness” about how systemic problems in the nation’s education system contribute to poverty, crime, and disenfranchisement.”

Hayes is a Washington, D.C.-based analyst in the education strategy and operations group of Huron Consulting, a 13-year-old company headquartered in Chicago that boasts one of the largest higher education practices in the country with some 335 employees. Her current project: helping a Midwestern university evaluate different budget models and decide on which one to implement. "I'm just really passionate about learning how to make things better." The job, says Hayes, who studied mechanical engineering as an undergrad at the University of Virginia, is "a perfect marriage" of two things she enjoys: education and the problem-solving aspect of her undergraduate major.”

“A YouTube video that shows school officials in the Philippines cutting off a high school student’s graduation speech has sparked online debate about school authority and the freedom of speech.

Supporters praised Ms. Mallari for speaking out, while critics said a graduation ceremony was hardly the right place for such an outburst.

German students, teachers weep for classmates on doomed plane

“HALTERN AM SEE, Germany (Reuters) - Students and teachers at a small-town German high school broke down in tears once they realized that 16 classmates and two teachers were on board an ill-fated Germanwings airplane that crashed in France on Tuesday on a flight to Duesseldorf. The 10th grade students from the Joseph-Koenig-Gymnasium high school were on their way home after a week-long Spanish exchange program at the Institut Giola in Llinars del Vallès near Barcelona. It was a reciprocal visit after 12 Spanish students had spent a week at their school in December. "It was a Spanish language exchange program and they were flying home after having what was probably the most wonderful time of their lives," said Sylvia Loehrmann, the education minister for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.”

This Tech Flop Is Hurting Our Student Loan Programs

“The Department of Education’s massive computer system that stores data for more than 40 million Americans with student loans is so outdated and slow it can’t track how many people are actually enrolled in the government’s loan forgiveness and repayment programs. In January, the Department of Education said the Obama administration’s income-based repayment plans would cost about $22 billion more than originally anticipated. Originally, people could qualify if they took out loans after October 2007 and continued borrowing through 2011 – but President Obama recently expanded the program to borrowers who took out loans even before that.

“By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - Police have arrested five high school students in southern Arizona who are accused of making a detailed plot to murder a classmate off campus, authorities said on Thursday. The five students, one adult and four juveniles, were booked into Pima County Jail on Wednesday on charges of suspicion of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in connection with the alleged scheme at Flowing Wells High School in Tucson. All five were taken into custody at the school, said a spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, Sergeant Pete Dugan. "Thankfully someone stepped forward and did the right thing and told administrative staff what was going on."

Penn State frat photo scandal shows colleges are cracking down
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News

Mar 19, 2015
“Fraternities are in the hot seat again this week as authorities investigate the photos of unconscious nude women on a private Facebook page at Pennsylvania State University, as well as hazing allegations at the University of Houston and the University of Wisconsin. The swift responses by university and national fraternity officials – suspensions of Kappa Delta Rho at Penn State and Sigma Chi in Houston and the elimination of Chi Phi at UW-Madison – suggest they feel a growing pressure to crack down. In the wake of the national uproar over a racist chant at a University of Oklahoma fraternity, these cases may add to a domino effect, prompting other students or alumni to come forward with reports of sexual harassment, misconduct, and hazing. “Penn State immediately shutting down the fraternity shows they are willing to at least make swift progress when something like this happens.... Universities are starting to have more of a low-tolerance or zero-tolerance policy for racism and sexual violence on campus,” says Tracey Vitchers, spokeswoman for SAFER (Students Active for Ending Rape).”
