Underprepared Students   http://measuringup.highereducation.org/2000/articles/UnderpreparedStudents.cfm  Site Reviews(0)
As we begin the 21st century, information technology is transforming the world at a breathtaking pace. Our future economy will be built on information-based industries that need a broadly based, highly skilled workforce. Eighty percent of new jobs will require some postsecondary education but, unfortunately, only 42% of today's students leave high school with the necessary skills to begin college-level work. America's greatest strength is its commitment to the value and importance of every individual; the nation benefits when everyone's talents are fully developed.

Is university Education in Canada more affordable than in the United States?   http://www.millenniumscholarships.ca/en/research/millennium_research_n1-en.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
Few Canadians find themselves at a loss when asked to list those things that make their society different from that of their American neighbours. Free health care and gun control inevitably top the list. Other items might include a preference for multiculturalism over the melting pot, a more liberal interpretation of equality rights and a less vengeful approach to criminal justice. Many might also mention a greater willingness to redistribute wealth, whether from region to region through equalization, or across income groups through a more progressive tax system. Given the assumption that Canadian social policy is more egalitarian than its American counterpart, most would likely assume that education in Canada is more affordable—that it is easier for Canadians of modest means to gain access to college or university than it is for those south of the border. Certainly everyone has heard of the astoundingly high tuition fees that await those who venture to Princeton or Yale.

University Career Services Curriculum Vitae   http://careers.gmu.edu/students/jobhunt/huntref/vita.cfm  Site Reviews(0)
Although the terminology resume and curriculum vitae are sometimes used interchangeably, they are quite distinct. If you are applying for an academic position in higher education or for a research position in an academically oriented organization, you may be required to submit a curriculum vitae, also known as a CV or a vita. A curriculum vitae is a comprehensive document that includes detailed information highlighting academic achievements. It may cite earned degrees, research experience, teaching experience, publications, assistantships, internships, study abroad, academic awards or scholarships, university involvement/service, conference participation, languages, and professional presentations.

Using Data to Improve Educational Outcomes   http://www.pathwaystocollege.net/pdf/data.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
Why Is Data Use Important? The use of data is a powerful tool to strengthen academic outcomes for all students—especially underserved students. Using data tells us whether certain groups of students have been disproportionately tracked into lower level classes or special education and whether or not they are proportionately represented in college-prep classes, honors or advanced placement courses, and other academic enrichment programs. Data disaggregated by factors such as race/ethnicity, English proficiency, income level, and disability status can lead to policies and practices designed to reduce dropout rates and improve the quality of instruction for underserved students. Under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) public school systems have assumed greater accountability and responsibility for tracking outcomes and improving performance of elementary and middle school pupils. With reauthorization of NCLB in 2007, it is likely that Using Data to Improve Educational Outcomes A College Readiness Issue Brief from the Pathways to College Network similar reporting requirements will be extended to high schools, which for the most part are currently required to report only annual graduation rates. Some schools and programs are already reaping significant benefits from using data as a constructive tool to continually improve student performance and to develop coherent instructional programs aligned with standards. But many more must follow if we are to make headway in closing the nation’s chronic achievement gap between underserved students and all others. Today, only 60 percent of young people from low-income families can expect to graduate from high school; just one in three will enroll in college. A high school dropout is four times as likely to be unemployed as a college graduate and if employed will earn nearly 60 percent less than a peer with a college degree. Statistics such as these, along with steadily increasing levels of knowledge and skills required for high-performance 21st century jobs, augur bleakly for those without postsecondary education.

This book is a guide to developing curriculum for workplace basic skills programs. We wrote it mainly for facilitators, instructors, oordinators, and teacher trainers responsible for designing programs, teaching, facilitating learning in individualized programs, and creating workplace learning materials. We hope it will also be useful (in conjunction with the handbooks* in this series) to educators involved in other aspects of workplace development and to union leaders and management who actively promote learning at the workplace.
