The Washington Post reports that during the economic crisis, college costs have continued to soar, while options for financing a higher-education have been severely diminished. Many poor and middle-class households are finding it more and more difficult to pay for a college education, and some are finding the new reality quite prohibitive. Even for those who can afford college have to rely on high-interest student loans to get into the… Continue

I feel like I shouldn't be surprised. When I finished 5th grade, I regarded how quickly elementary school went. When I finished 8th grade I said "Wow, middle school just flew by." When senior year in high school came around I felt like I had just begun. It happens every time and it's happening again. I recently completely the first semester of my senior year, and am anticipating the start and end of the next one.
It will feel completely surreal when I'm in Yankee Stadium getting my… Continue

My nephew, Z, is a senior at Stanford and will graduate this coming May. His mind is sharp and his entrepreneurial spirit is strong. His resume far surpasses mine coming out of college. Z has spent the past few summers building websites, working at major wall street firms, and also working for an international law firm.
I graduated from Boston University in 1993. Z will graduate from Stanford in 2010. A lot has changed a over the past seventeen years, particularly information and the… Continue

DENVER — Warning that higher education is facing a funding crisis next year, Gov. Bill Ritter named businessman Dick Monfort and attorney Jim Lyons on Thursday to chair a new committee and come up with a roadmap for the future of Colorado's 27 public colleges and universities.
"It really is about writing the future of education in this state and higher education in this state. It really is about a master plan," Ritter told college presidents and education leaders at a summit at the… Continue

CU has not unionized its adjuncts (although there was an attempt a few years ago), Metro State did. As a temp (one semester) I was not eligible to join union which was apparently open only to permanent faculty. Because of the contract, Metro did not require us to have office hours nor were we recipients of benefits (we were required to contribute to the state retirement fund).
CU, without a union, offers us the same level of benefits as any other part timer with the exception of… Continue

Before a class even begins, we have ideas about what it will be like based on the subject matter, what we know about the professor (whether or not we've taken a class with him or her before), and with whom we are taking the class. This semester, I took two Graduate-level English classes. I had taken two classes with one of the professors before, but the other professor I only knew of through a friend. I was excited for the one class but not so much for the other.
Throughout the semester, I… Continue

As finals week begins, many students are reaching out to their teachers for extra advice on papers or exams. Some friends have expressed to me the variation of how teachers really decide on a final grade. One friend told me about a professor for calculus, who in the beginning of the year said homework did not count and was only handed in if a student wanted to see whether or not their work was correct. Then as the final class came around, the professor informed my friend's class that the… Continue

Since I found out how easy it is to add graphics, I'll show a couple of other tools - and these are a preview of the upcoming iPhone version; they work exactly the same on a computer.
The first is based on Flander's Analysis research and is useful in observing any classroom. These are the components of good teaching in most situations. You need to gather data for the entire class or lesson in elementary for this tool to be useful.…

Copenhagen needs one country, small or large, to eliminate fossil fuel usage with 5 years .... sending a message to the other 238 countries. Japan has a protype for electromagnetic propulsion ... eliminating fossil fuels on the high seas by fitting their entire merchant marine .. so why is Japan lagging ..instead of leading?
