Bush Radio Address to the Nation from the Oval Office - January 27, 2001 - Education Reform A week ago today I received a great honor, and all the great responsibilities that come with it. The first order of business is education reform, and we have started strong. On Tuesday , I sent to Congress a package of reforms to turn last year's pledges into this year's laws. I want to make all of our public schools places of learning and high standards and achievement. Our country must offer every child, no matter what his or her background or accent, a fair start in life with a quality education. I also met this week with congressional leaders in both parties, and we found a lot of agreement on the basic goals of reform. No one is content with the status quo. Most are open to new ideas. Everyone agrees at least that the problems are serious and action is urgently needed.

classrooms in the winter; a tie in to the school science fair, with small programmy full support and it is written into our schoolWide Development Plan.
KIDS for the BAY provides exciting, hands-on science programs for kindergarten through sixth grade classes. Programs focus on creek and bay habitats of the San Francisco estuary ecosystem and important local environmental issues. KIDS for the BAY provides professional development for teachers, academic enrichment for students and helps schools to implement the California Science Framework.

School Wide Creek Action Program
KIDS for the BAY works with every class in the school and the school principal and parents, to adopt, clean up and restore a creek within walking distance of the school. KftB Program Directors partner with teachers to teach a Kindergarten through fifth grade creek curriculum, which builds concepts and skills from one grade level to the next and teaches the latest science standards. Every grade level works on a different action project including: planting wildflowers, reducing pesticide pollution, raising and releasing Pacific Chorus Frogs, adopting and planting creek-side plants and water quality testing. Sample School Wide Creek Action Program At Stege School In Richmond: At Stege School 100% of the children are low-income, children of color on free and reduced school lunch and fewer than 1% of their parents had the opportunity to attend college. KIDS for the BAY works with all 24 classes of teachers and children in the school, the principal Ginny Green and the parents. We are having a wonderful experience working with Stege School where there is a lot of excitement about and commitment to the creek program. Using the creek as an educational resource, KftB is cultivating the children's love of learning, helping them achieve higher standards and empowering them to become stewards of their local environment.

his is not an entomology course,” says Entomology Department Professor John Meyer of his course, Entomology 525: Entomology for Educators. “It’s actually a biology and ecology course for teachers where insects are used as paradigms.”
In other words, bugs are a means, not an end in this course. And a very perfect means, according to Meyer, who says, “Arthropods make great examples of practically every biological and ecological principle.” Entomology 525, taught during spring semester from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings, is targeted to middle school and high school teachers and to science education students who are planning to teach. “I also would like to attract more elementary school teachers,” says Meyer, who advertises the course in a radius of a two-hour drive from Raleigh. So far, teachers taking his course have come from Fayetteville, Sanford, Chapel Hill and Wilmington, as well as Wake County. There have been some remarkable results: After taking Entomology for Educators, Rita Hagevik, a Raleigh middle school teacher, was able to come up with a unique science project suggestion for student Marife Ortega. Hagevik, taking a cue from Dr. Jim Smith, an RTP entomologist who volunteers with Meyer’s class, guided Marife’s experiment in assaying the blood of stink bugs for compounds that suppress the growth of bacteria. Marife not only won first place in that school science fair, but, with versions of the project as she progressed into high school, she also won in regional and state fairs.

Or, visit Popular Alerts for suggestions. Manage alerts What is this? WASHINGTON (AP) In her 24th year of teaching, Brenda Parrish has a new reason for ensuring her students do well on standardized tests: Their scores will affect her pay raise. If a new commission of government, business and education leaders has its way, all teachers will find a significant portion of their raises tied to progress by their students. Nationwide, salaries and raises are typically based on a teacher's experience and education. That system "does nothing to reward excellence because all teachers, regardless of effort or performance, get the same automatic pay increases," according to a new report by The Teaching Commission, a nonprofit group formed in 2003 to improve the public teaching corps. Parrish, who teaches eighth-grade math at Bell Street Middle School in Clinton, South Carolina, will have 20 percent of any salary bump based on her students' test-score gains. An additional 30 percent will be based on test scores for her school, while the remaining 50 percent of her review will be based on classroom evaluations, including her ability to motivate students.

Push for $3bn lift to public schools
By Samantha Maiden
April 20, 2004 EVERY child attending a public school will secure an extra $300 in federal funding under a proposal by Labor states to deliver a $3 billion boost to the nation's neediest schools.
The plan to shift the balance of commonwealth spending back towards public schools will be presented to Education Minister Brendan Nelson by a united block of Labor states at this week's Ministerial Council on Education Training and Youth Affairs. Accusing the commonwealth of cost-shifting to the states, the states' schools blueprint also calls for an additional $26 million to assist refugees with intensive English language studies and extra support to help schools meet requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act. NSW Education Minister Andrew Refshauge, who will chair the meeting, told

Visitors since 8/12/96
Welcome From PLANS President
Welcome! People for Legal and Non-Sectarian Schools (PLANS) is a world-wide network of former Waldorf parents, teachers, students, administrators and trustees who come from a variety of backgrounds with a common goal: to educate the public about the reality behind Waldorf's facade of progressive, arts-based education. Waldorf is the most visible activity of Anthroposophy, an occultist sect founded by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Together, we have performed exhaustive research on Waldorf schools and Anthroposophy, the esoteric, occult religion that both guides and inspires Waldorf teachers. PLANS affirms the right of all religious groups to practice and to teach their beliefs. But we expect those groups including Anthroposophy to tell the truth about their missionary efforts. My personal experience with Waldorf was very confusing. Instead of the progressive and liberal alternative school I was led to expect by the school's promotional materials and staff, I discovered a rigid, authoritarian environment that seemed to be rooted in a medieval dogma that I did not understand. When, in an effort to make sense of things, I asked questions about this, I found Waldorf teachers to be strangely defensive. I was stunned to arrive at the conclusion that the education of children at least as I use the term "education" did not seem to be the school's most important focus and objective. But what was?
