Newark school board approves changes to attendance, discipline, graduation

By Catherine Carrera The Newark Board of Education approved updates to several policies Tuesday that will, among other changes, modify the way absences are tracked and suspensions are imposed. Certain rules embedded in the old policies contributed to an unclear number of retentions and suspensions. For example, a clause in the previous attendance policy would keep a student in the same grade due to chronic absenteeism without considering the cause of the absences. New language in the policies aims to keep students in school and on track, Superintendent Roger León said. The updated attendance policy and guidance will give attendance... Read more →

SAY IT ISN'T SO: Tens of millions of Pennsylvania school dollars 'unauditable'

By Anthony Hennen | The Center Square (The Center Square) – Recent state audits have called attention to some Pennsylvania school districts’ lackadaisical controls that have made auditing how tens of millions of dollars were spent impossible.

How to Stop Procrastinating and Start Studing

Students often feel procrastination in college. The reason for that is that they have a lot of homework, and can’t manage their time as they want.

Guest Opinion: A NEW SURVEY ON ABORTION

Bill Donahue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a new survey on abortion: Radio, TV, the internet, and newspapers are alive with stories saying that a majority of Americans do not want Roe v. Wade overturned. Those reports are totally misleading. While the actual text of the decision does not allow for all abortions, in practice it does: to perform a late-term abortion all the doctor has to do is invoke a "mental health" exception, and bingo—he can legally abort the baby.

Question! Has the federal government underestimated the progress of high school students ?

by Matt Barnum Mar 31, 2022 At a recent event at Stanford University, Netflix founder and education donor Reed Hastings offered a familiar refrain about educational outcomes in the U.S. “We all know the data — that for 30, 40, 50 years, it’s pretty flat,” he said. “We’ve got a mediocre, by international standards, system that’s not getting any better.” Hastings didn’t cite any specific numbers. But there’s a good chance he had in mind one particularly troubling trend: 12th graders’ scores on federal math and reading exams have barely budged since testing began in the 1970s.
