  • In Kenya, religious coexistence feels pressure of stronger Muslim identity
    Her attire speaks to a series of compromises between her Christian-funded school and its Muslim students. This is the trade-off for attending Malindi Central Primary School, one of Kenya’s many church-sponsored public schools.

  • University of Oklahoma frat brothers taught racist chant at leadership event

    SAE brother apologizes for racist chantThese lyrics from “South Pacific,” the musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, easily come to mind with the latest news about a racist fraternity chant at the University of Oklahoma. An investigation ordered by university President David Boren reveals that the videotaped racist chant by brothers of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity had been taught at a leadership event organized by SAE’s national organization four years ago. Boren said about 25 members of the school's SAE chapter will face punishment ranging from two expulsions the school announced previously to mandatory community service and cultural sensitivity training. Boren said the investigation found alcohol was "readily available" at the fraternity house before the start of the event, and that about a dozen high school students whom he described as "potential recruits" were also on the bus.

  • College Students to Veteran Educators: Quit Telling Us to Avoid Teaching
    We don’t need your protection, we need you to stay strong and stand up for what you know is right,” wrote Rivera. “ ‘Thank you for writing this post! I thought I was the only person who felt that way!’ ” The feedback, she says, led her to realize that aspiring teachers “shouldn’t be working individually, but we should come together” as a unified force to push education reform. A year later, that idea and her blog post have become the blueprint for the Young Teachers Collective, an effort that Rivera and six other aspiring educators launched last week. Blending advocacy and vision with support-group nurturing and old-fashioned union-style organization, YTC calls for a “common vision for the future of education.” The initiative also hopes to “provide young teachers with both a sense of hope and tools on how to fight for a better education system.” That includes helping educators develop “political consciousness” about how systemic problems in the nation’s education system contribute to poverty, crime, and disenfranchisement.More

  • German students, teachers weep for classmates on doomed plane
    HALTERN AM SEE, Germany (Reuters) - Students and teachers at a small-town German high school broke down in tears once they realized that 16 classmates and two teachers were on board an ill-fated Germanwings airplane that crashed in France on Tuesday on a flight to Duesseldorf. The 10th grade students from the Joseph-Koenig-Gymnasium high school were on their way home after a week-long Spanish exchange program at the Institut Giola in Llinars del Vallès near Barcelona. It was a reciprocal visit after 12 Spanish students had spent a week at their school in December. "It was a Spanish language exchange program and they were flying home after having what was probably the most wonderful time of their lives," said Sylvia Loehrmann, the education minister for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.More

  • Successfully Earn a STEM Associate Degree in Community College
    Community college can be a starting point for students who pursue STEM careers that require advanced degrees or an avenue for students to earn an associate degree and other certifications. "Community college is a good first stop because of the price, for one thing, and I feel it gives you a really good quality education," says Andrew Constantine, a 19 year-old freshman at Southern Maine Community College. Money issues, insufficient math and science skills and unfamiliarity with STEM careers and the college process are some of the reasons students don't stick with STEM, according to a report produced last year by Hanover Research, a global marketing firm.More
