ESSA's actual effect

ESSA's actual effect

For all the hype surrounding the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), it seems unlikely to produce many changes actually visible on the ground, wrote Alia Wong in December 2015 for The Atlantic. Forty-two states and the District of Columbia already had waivers from No Child Left Behind (NCLB), so most students nationally were already learning under a system that had rejected much of NCLB's most onerous provisions. States with waivers were…

A boon for English Language Learners

A boon for English Language Learners
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) could significantly bolster support for English-language learners (ELL), their families, and the educators who work with them, wrote Scott Sargrad in January 2016 in U.S. News and World Report. No Child Left Behind took a major step forward for ELLs by disaggregating achievement data and holding schools accountable for improving ELL reading and math achievement and graduation…

An expansion of alternative teacher prep?

An expansion of alternative teacher prep?
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) could usher in new ways to prepare teachers for the classroom, wrote Sarah Garland in December 2015 for The Hechinger Report. Some ESSA provisions allow states to institute new degree-granting academies for teachers outside of traditional higher education systems, and encourage the creation of residency programs in which teacher recruits are paired with veterans for a year of…

The Key to Student Success: Build Educator and Collective Capacity

Picture this: You have hired excellent teachers, set high learning standards, started numerous student intervention programs, managed resources efficiently, and aligned your school goals. Sadly, no matter how hard everyone works each day, your school still has not been able to close achievement gaps, significantly raise achievement for other students, and provide the most vulnerable students with the social/emotional programs they need.This was the problem we faced in…

Schools as Instruments of Change: Transgender Students & Bathrooms

From those who have been vocal about their opposition to allowing transgender students use the bathroom that matches their gender identity, much of the objection seems not to be about the gender identity issue but rather that we are confronting imagined imposters who mean others harm. First, in what school, in this day and age, does anyone enter the building without checking in?  Second, in what schools do adult visitors in the building, use the bathrooms assigned for children?  If…

RESUMES THAT GET YOU INTERVIEWS by Larry Aronstein

Resumes That Get You Interviews

Resumes and cover letters are designed to get you an interview. If you’re a qualified candidate and you aren’t getting interviews, or if your rate of getting interviews is low, then your resume and cover letter are problems. Well qualified candidates should be getting interviews at least fifty percent of the time that you send them off. If you aren’t getting this kind of action, then you need to revise your resume…

Annual Membership Drive for Two Worthy Charities
During the Month of May each year, School Leadership 2.0 donates 100% of all new membership fees to worthy charities.

This year, we have chosen:

Talbot House of Catholic Charities to honor the memory of Bill Brennan's brother, Michael.

Michael K. Brennan MD (32) had just graduated Medical School and was spending a few weeks helping others who were struggling with substance abuse. Having just spent a week counseling his cousin, and on his way to bring him home to Florida,  Michael was the victim in a fatal car accident. Michael planned to pursue a career helping others with addictive behavior and his family is proud to honor his life of recovery and serving God. A donation will be made in honor of Michael K. Brennan, MD

LI 2Day Walk to honor the memory of Mike Keany's wife, Patricia.                                

The Long Island 2 Day Walk is organized to raise awareness and funding for the fight against cancer on Long Island. 100% of the donations raised by the participants are distributed to grassroots service organizations so the funds reach the members of the Long Island community affected by cancer.  Pat Keany was a victim of breast cancer in 2008.  The Keany family has been active participants in this organization for many years.

Obviously, we encourage additional donations to these two worthy charities.  Just click on the link(s) above and indicate your donation to Catholic Charities for Talbot House in honor of Michael K. Brennan, MD or to LI2Day "Team Hope."
 
We thank you.
