In an effort to inform preschool policy in California, an interdisciplinary team of RAND researchers conducted a multiyear study of preschool education known as the California Preschool Study. One of the recommendations from that study was the need for a more in-depth analysis of the effectiveness...
The analysis reveals distinct patterns of recurriculation, ranging from bureaucratic compliance to creating academic coherence between contrasting legacies. What becomes clear is the need for teacher education academics to grasp the challenges and opportunities to assert their power over shaping curriculum processes that will produce competent, confident teachers.
The College Board: Connecting Students to College Success The College Board is a not-for-proﬁt membership association whose mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity. Founded in 1900, the association is composed of more than 4,700 schools, colleges, universities, and other educational organizations.
The supporting agencies, UNICEF, WHO, the World Bank and UNFPA, worked together to

health education, including life skills, as the method for improving health and education.
Together, these agencies are dedicated to fostering effective school health programmes
that implement skills-based health education along with school health policies, a healthy

The mass media proclaimed the above as the new millennium began. Acad-
emics and professionals have been holding conferences about it for a while
now. Designers themselves have insisted on it all along. But what, exactly,
does that statement mean? A proliferation of hip hotels and award-winning
potato peelers do not an era make.
The pace and scope of change in the world and in organizations
during the past 10 years have been unprecedented.
In this environment, staying ahead of the curve and being
adequately prepared for work, management, and leadership
has been challenging—even daunting. At the same
time, a massive shift in the balance of economic power is
under way, with many of the world’s largest economies
slowing down as other economies continue to grow and
gain power, bringing prosperity to many and a new world

. This in no way reflects on the intelligence or education level of the writers, but represents the difficulty of merging technical knowledge with writing skills to produce an acceptable product. It is not unusual for highly educated technicians to produce poor-quality writing because their training and experience have not focused on verbal and written skills.

When we think of women in developing countries, our minds
immediately flash to what they need, what we can give to
them, how we can help them. But what if we flipped this notion
upside down? What if those of us who are well educated and well
fed considered what we could learn from them—how they could
Those who find the greatest success in business and the most
satisfaction in life are often eternal students. This is especially true
of women. We’re always studying what others are doing and how
they’re doing it....
Your host country requested an English education project to improve opportunities for future
development. English language skills provide access to information and technology from around
the world. While your students are learning English, they also have an opportunity to stretch their
minds in new ways. Through communicative activities, they have their ideas challenged and they
are exposed to an active style of learning. And working with enthusiastic Peace Corps Volunteers
like yourself, students and teachers raise their aspirations and ideas of what is possible to
