Innovative Solutions to the Autism Crisis in Education

Evelyn Gould, MS | 10/06/2011

The dramatic increase in the incidence of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) among children and the current economic climate presents an increasing challenge to both families and schools.  Budget cuts mean schools are faced with larger class sizes, decreased access to training and resources, and fewer staff at a time when they are seeing more children with autism in their classrooms. With states scrambling to save more money in coming months and years, the situation in education is set to worsen. Essentially, schools are finding themselves increasingly “on their own” when it comes to accessing the training and tools they need to provide an effe... Read More...

Why Great Teachers Quit & How to stop the Teacher Exodus

Katy Farber | 08/09/2011

How much time have you spent on interview committees? Time when you could have been grading papers, contacting parents, or preparing for your next class? If you have been teaching for more than a few years, you’ve undoubtedly sat in on countless interview committees. That’s because too many of your most talented colleagues have quit teaching — some suddenly — many for preventable reasons. It’s likely that many of them were outstanding teachers, and our schools spend tens of thousands of dollars hiring new ones, only to repeat this cycle in a few short years. It’s a waste of money, time, and resources (all which we know are increasingly scarce... Read More...

Teacher Leaders: Using case studies to share best practices

Jeanne Harmon | 08/09/2011

Every day, moment by moment and decision by decision, thousands of teacher leaders nationwide are working to improve the quality of education. As they fill an ever-expanding array of roles — mentors and coaches, curriculum reformers, advocates, staff developers — their leadership development journeys are most often a process of trial and error. Teacher leadership is defined in many ways. It does not come with a user’s manual, and few teacher leaders receive specialized training and support for their new roles. Instead, they must learn how to guide changes in learning environments while negotiating a complex obstacle course of district politic... Read More...
