UCLA IDEA‐‐http://idea.gseis.ucla.edu/newsroom/education‐news‐roundup/daily‐news‐ roundup/: UCLA’s Institute for Democracy, Education, and Access (IDEA) is a research institute seeking to understand and challenge pervasive racial and social class inequalities in education. ASCD Smart Briefs: Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner. Our 160,000 members in 148 countries are professional educators from all levels and subject areas––superintendents, supervisors, principals, teachers, professors of education, and school board members. USA Today: This is a comment, on the USA Today site entitled Alabama city to try full day of school online, from one of our parents… I am a parent in this school system and my kids were doing eday homework this weekend. I am a little skeptical but my wife likes it and says nobody would have taken the two makeup days after Memorial Day seriously. It is helpful that they are doing this a month before school ends. That should help the teachers hold the students accountable for the work. Our teachers are pretty well versed with technology in the classroom and this can only help with that.

Just wait until they have to start streaming classes to students at home as the school districts cannot afford to run busses with the rising fuel prices.
