...Phones chirping, walkie talkies crackling through the air, cell phones vibrating, teachers and secretaries whisking in and out to ask questions are what I experienced while interviewing Brian Hostetler, Assistant Principal at Chambersburg Area Senior High School. Mr. Hostetler started out his teaching career as a Health and Physical Education teacher in the Owen J. Roberts School District. Brian was going strong teaching and coaching three sports, life was grand until he realized that in four years he had not taken any courses towards his Level II certification. His dream was to become an Athletic Director. He started taking courses in Educational Leadership at Immaculata University, working toward that goal. At the same time, his district hired a new principal in his building, Owen J. Roberts Middle School. Brian didn’t think the new principal was being an effective leader and he began questioning many decisions the new principal was making and the way he ran the building. This new principal is how Brian became the principal he is today. Brian knew what type of principal he wanted to be and it was not like his principal at his school. Brian came to Chambersburg after he applied to New Orleans and North Carolina. This is Brian’s fifth year at Chambersburg in and those five years he has been assistant principal under two different principals. His first four years were steady and he only dealt with discipline issues. This year is more of a challenge for Brian......

...Letter from a Very Concerned American Parent - Response Required. ANY LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT. P.O. Box 12345. Any Town, U.S.A. 54321. Re: Excessive Multi-Cultural and Diversity Awareness Programs / Celebrations. To: The Superintendent, Your Local School District. My wife and I once again received a handout from my son's elementary school concerning a non-American study project. This one concerns a week devoted to study of the Mexican Era. It asks for volunteers to help out with a culminating classroom "celebration of all things Mexican." Although my wife, Kim, and I often volunteer to assist with school functions for our children, we will NOT be volunteering for this one, or any other school function centered on non-American subject matter. Bottom line…we've had it with the onslaught of multi-cultural and diversity awareness programs being shoved down the throats of children in this school district. Before you label us racist, or right-wing religious fanatics, or homophobic, or whatever is currently en vogue to defend the Any Local School District agenda this week, I will ABSOLUTELY DENY YOU the opportunity. I defended democracy and freedom for fifteen years in the Air Force, flying hundreds of missions over hostile territory in combat conditions. I worked closely with people of every conceivable race or racial mix you can imagine. I trusted my life to them, and them to me. Not once did we put our tails on the line so my children would be deluged with Mexican,......

...| “To what extent if at all, does the Education Act of 1988 cater for the educated person?” Discuss. | PBL1012 – Education Law | 1/15/2014 | Malta’s state school is based on the British educational system, due to its colonial past. The law regulating Education in Malta (Act XXIV of 1988) defines the rights and obligations of students, parents, the State and Non-Governmental Organizations in the sphere of Education. There are various objectives the Act purports to achieve to cater for the educated person. These include holistic education and life-long education which are vital and fundamental to the whole purpose of the re-established Act of 1988. Holistic Education The Act caters for the “full development of the whole personality including the ability of every person to work”. This is what is called holistic education which is based on the principle that students find their identity and purpose in life by connecting to the community, nature and humanitarian values. The purpose of holistic education is not only to prepare students for academic success, but it also brings about a passionate love for learning and an intrinsic reverence of life. Indeed, they learn about themselves, healthy relationships, social responsibility, and compassion amongst other things. Moreover, it tends to eliminate the general and prevalent idea that attending classes/conferences/information meetings is merely done out of obligation. Rather, holistically educated people do so......

...Let’s Communicate Virtually Jeannie Beda Grand Canyon University: UNV 501 March 3 , 2015 Let’s Communicate Virtually The authors explored the importance of online interaction and the effects of productivity of participants in online courses. There is a further look at the role of the read-only students and their engagement in the virtual learning community(Nigel, Blignaut & Cronje,2009,38).The case study conducted involved observation and research of postgraduate online course participation. Thus, the guiding question of the search was how did the participation and involvement in a learning community coincide with the success of the learning process(Nigel et al.,2009). Methods The frame of reference for the study was an 8 week online class of graduate level students that were enrolled in a technology infused education course. The course work consisted of practical and analytical application that dealt with eight online learning topics. Students were to research and post responses to the discussion forum each week. Parallel to the posting, students had to create artifacts that utilized theory. The data produced from the students’ experiences with online participation and learning was documented in many formats. The formats included were private blogs for reflection and self-assessment, open paragraph questions included in a online quiz, reflective essay, feedback questions via email to the students.(Nigel et al.,2009, p.41). After the course concluded students......

...Leadership in Educational Institutions Leadership responsibilities for heads of educational institutions play a key role in addressing the problems that face these institutions. The learning process in most high schools fails to deliver the expected results due to poor leadership. Today, many educational institutions seek to implement the evaluation process for public school principals based not only on leadership skills, but responsibilities, accountability, and professionalism (Szczesiul and Huizenga 166). The evaluation system seeks to address increasing issues of high school dropout rates, discipline, academic performance, and development of interpersonal skills among students. Appropriate leadership should be based on student growth and development, unlike earlier systems that rated students based on their academic performances. High school principals need to have the right skills required to address emerging issues such as the curriculum and teacher-student relationship evaluations (Katterfeld 344). Strategic high school leaders understand the needs of the students, teachers, and the non-teaching staff. The evaluation process seeks to determine whether high school principals adopt strategic measures to engage in professional dialogs with the teachers concerning teaching and learning process that occurs in classrooms. Transformational leadership remains critical due to changes in technology, globalization, and diversification, which play a crucial role in the......

Educational Leadership in Philippine Setting

...Task Force Memorandum is that, as an alternative or possibly a supplement to an increased use of experiential learning in the business curriculum, business schools should emphasize the benefits of the extracurricular activities of students. Clearly, Guide to Business Gaming and Experiential Learning, 1990 What is Experiential Learning? 13 such activities offer a small subset of the student body a chance to develop their leadership skills experientially. The Memorandum suggests that business schools actively encourage student clubs to promote activities which involve student participation so that their speaking, discussion, interpersonal, and goalsetting abilities are developed. Applied. As presented by Wolfe and Byrne (1975), the design phase of the experience is critical. Experiences occurring without guidance and adequate academic preparation may yield little insight into the general processes taking place. The Task Force stated that experiences will not qualify as applied experiential learning without having the expected educational outcomes articulated and related to the curriculum. Participative. The student must be involved in the process. Experiential learning is active rather than passive. Rather than just listening to a lecture, students do role plays, or make decisions (as in a simulation game), or perform an analysis of a firm’s problems (as in a small business case project). Interactive. As specified by the Task Force, the interaction involves more......

...Educational Name Institution CONCEPT | DEFINITION | APPLICATION | Content Terms from Review of Literature | | | 1. Validity | This is the ability of a measuring device or test to measure what is supposed to measure (Kothari, 2011). | Different companies undertake market surveys to assess the consumer’s preference over their products in comparison to their competitors. A marketing report is considered valid if an independent marketer can determine that the report measures the client preference of the company. | 2. Reliability | Reliability is the capacity of a given test or instrument to produce consistent observations (Kothari, 2011). This means that similar outcomes must be observed when conducted by different researchers. | In many universities, students are given questionnaires by the administration to assess the effectiveness of their instructors. If a particular teacher is portrayed as inefficient by two or more classes, it can be said that the questionnaire is reliable in measuring the effectiveness of that lecturer. On the other hand, if the results from different classes are inconsistent, then the method is unreliable. | 3. Sample | A sample refers to a small group of items, individuals, or events taken from a larger one to assist in analyzing the later part. For a sample to be useful in assessing the population, its size should be large and collected in a random manner. | Before any medical innovation can be endorsed, pharmaceuticals have......

Ethics and the Educational Leadership

... Ethics and the Educational Leadership: Student-Centered practice This research is the design, justification and proposal for change in the process of learning for the leaders, teachers and students. It highlights the need for ethics in the learning process and the results brought by adopting the student-centered education system. Its positive effects could be evidenced in the performance of individual students, teachers, schools and throughout the globe. This learning process is the change needed in the education system all over the world and therefore it is highly recommended for all institutions and the government. Past studies have illustrated the importance of ethics in the educational leadership. For instance, in the article the Union of Teaching, Learning, and Doing, it is stated that things must be done, individuals have got to learn, and those close to them should become teachers…education is not only focused on teaching learners how to learn, however it is teaching them to actively take part in life… Hansen,(2007). The term student centered is the main focus of my proposal and foundation of the ethics in educational leadership. Therefore, I am analyzing the term for better understanding of the whole theme. According to Maryellen Weimer( ), student centered teaching is 1 idea which is based on the following five principles; the balance of power, the contents’ function, the teachers role, the learning responsibility and finally the processes and purpose of......

...Associate-degree level nurses complete 2-3 years of schooling and can be completed at a community college before, sitting for the NCLEX to become a Registered Nurse. The Associate-degree nurse does more bedside nursing with very little research being performed. Nurses are expected to take care of the patient as a whole, whether they are ADN or BSN. In the past this level of nursing was needed to supply the needs of nurses due to a shortage during the war. Health care is changing rapidly as more and more hospitals are trying to become Magnet hospitals, in which they require all nurse managers and leaders to hold a higher education. Baccalaureate Degree Nurses are in school and exposed to a longer period of education, in which they study in depth leadership, management, and a deeper knowledge of caring for the patients. This means the BSN nurses can function both as a bedside nurse and in management or administrative roles in the hospital setting or outside of the hospital. As a baccalaureate nurse you are expected to us more critical thinking while assessing and providing care for the patient. You are expected to be able to teach you patients at a high level on the disease processes they may encounter, as well as, promote health and disease prevention and provide compassion in the end of death process (Grand Canyon University College of Nursing Philosophy, 2). Studies have proved that hospitals with nurses who have higher educations have had better out comes with their......

...JOURNAL ON EDUCATIONAL MANAGEMENT JOURNAL ON EDUCATIONAL MANAGEMENT DR. ELSA E. GUMIRAN PROFESSOR DR. ELSA E. GUMIRAN PROFESSOR MELISSA F. PANAGA M.A ED. STUDENT MELISSA F. PANAGA M.A ED. STUDENT THEORIES OF EDUCATIONAL MANAGEMENT INTRODUCTION: Education is the key to change the traditional way of living and to open the gate of modern way of life. As a result, the management of educational organization is regarded as one of the most important management angles in the society. Educational management, according to researcher Tony Bush argues that education management has to be concerned with the purpose or aims of education. These objectives or aims serve to provide a crucial sense of direction in managing educational institutions. At the heart of education management is the process of deciding on the goals and objectives of the educational institution. In some schools, universities and colleges, it is the principal or the president, whichever is the title of the organization’s highest official that decides these goals and objectives. Often, this is done with the help of the principal or president’s senior colleagues and even the school board or its stakeholders, in the case of a private corporation. However, in many educational institutions, education management with respect to goal setting is a corporate activity done by formal bodies or informal groups or individuals. The......

...up with gasoline or they won't go anywhere.  Of course I haven't even mentioned expenses that don't happen every month such as car repairs or new shoes.  No wonder so many families are feeling so financially stressed! The truth is that American families are getting squeezed harder than they have been in ages.  The number of good jobs is declining, incomes are going down, and the cost of living just keeps going up. The following are 17 facts that prove that the average American family is getting absolutely pulverized by this economy.... #1 The cost of a health insurance policy for the average American family rose by a whopping 9 percent last year.  According to a report put out by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust, the average family health insurance policy now costs over $15,000 a year. How in the world can most families afford that?  Yes, in many cases employers are paying for at least a portion of that, but still that seems absolutely outrageous. #2 Due to rising costs, a lot of employers are completely getting rid of health plans for their employees.  In fact, the percentage of Americans covered by employer-based health plans has fallen for 11 years in a row. #3 The number of uninsured Americans continues to rise.  Things have gotten so bad that an all-time record 49.9 million Americans do not have any health insurance at all. #4 At this point, most American families are tapped out financially.  According to the U.S. Labor......

...Running head: EDUCATIONAL PREPARATION Educational Preparation Alicia Beltz Grand Canyon University Professional Dynamics NRS-430V Monica Kidder April 1, 2012 Educational Preparation The educational standards and competencies needed to advance from an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) to a bachelor’s of science degree in nursing (BSN) are essential to provide superior care to patients. The health care fields are ever advancing and in turn, demanding higher education from nurses. Therefore, many nurses are continuing their education to advance with the ever-changing demands of their profession. Obtaining a BSN over an ADN is essential for nurses to provide a higher quality of care and learn to make complex decisions that go above and beyond direct patient care. An associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) provides a nurse with general clinical competencies and technical proficiencies to practice safely in a general nursing field. The nurse achieves the basic knowledge and skills needed to pass state boards and practice in multiple clinical settings to provide direct, quality patient care. Additionally, they learn how to use their critical thinking skills and care management to provide quality care to patients. These skills are critical to the everyday work of an ADN professional. Furthermore, the ADN graduates are taught skills to teach patients self care as well as the ability to communicate effectively with patients and professional staff. These skills......
