Distance Education Programme (DEP)is a major intervention in Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan(SSA) focusing on “strengthening training through distance learning’. SSA calls for the training of a large no. of teachers and other personnel to bring out qualitative improvement in elementary education. As face-to-face approach or the cascade model would be inadequate to carry out the enormous task of training and recurrent training of those associated with elementary.
Throughout the world, members of the education research community have
long decried the lack of attention to research and scholarship that is evident in most
education policies promulgated by state, provincial, and national legislatures. The
Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2001 (ESEA 2001), which was
recently signed into law in the United States, is an interesting case to consider in

The current study extends recent value-added modeling approaches for longitudinal student achievement data Lockwood et al. [J. Educ. Behav. Statist. 32 (2007) 125–150] to allow data to be missing not at random via random effects selection and pattern mixture models, and applies those methods to data from a large urban school district to estimate effects of elementary school mathematics teachers.
The line between depressive and anxiety disorders in perinatal as well as general
populations is often blurred; when the EPDS has been factor-analyzed, although there are
separate factors corresponding to depression and anxiety, several items have moderate
loadings on both factors (Swalm, et al., 2010). Some services refer to antenatal or postnatal
“distress” rather than attempt to differentiate depression from anxiety, and often women
report a mix of anxious and depressed symptoms.
Although most of the research and clinical attention has been on unipolar depression among
antenatal and postnatal women, there is evidence that women with bipolar disorders are at
increased risk of postnatal psychosis, and women who have depressive symptoms should
be screened for bipolar disorder and monitored for elevated mood. However, there is no
consensus on the most effective screening method, with a variety of possible tools but no
one well validated in antenatal women (Chessick & Dimidjian, 2010)....

The purpose of this book is to present a basic yet comprehensive
treatment of assessment methods for use by health professions educators.
While there are many excellent textbooks in psychometric theory
and its application to large-scale standardized testing programs and
many educational measurement and assessment books designed for
elementary and secondary teachers and graduate students in education
and psychology, none of these books is entirely appropriate for
the specialized educational and assessment requirements of the health
The M.Ed. program offers graduate licensure in elementary education (K-6), gifted
education (K-12), and special education (K-12). In the M.Ed. program, students hone
skills for implementing appropriate instruction and differentiating curriculum for special
needs students while deepening their understanding of the different content areas.
Though skill development is an important aspect of the program, empowering teachers
to make professionally mature decisions and developing collaborative leadership and
research expertise are also emphasized. The M.Ed.
In May of 2000, I graduated with an undergraduate degree in elementary
education and a minor in English as a Second Language. My first teaching position was
in a rural school district. I taught fourth through eighth grade bilingual classes, two
sections of seventh and eighth grade Spanish, and worked with several at-risk students.
Frustrated by the educational gains these students made, and the lack of respect for
bilingual education, I applied and was hired for my current fourth grade position in a
neighboring school district.

Recognizing that financial considerations are not the only ones that are relevant in the decisions that must be made to close schools, Superintendent Mark Roosevelt appointed a committee to consider how to realign schools in a way that would not only save resources, but also better serve the academic needs of students across Pittsburgh. Closing schools can have substantial impacts on students, families, and neighborhoods.
The purposes of this research paper is to study argument basis by the way approaching the work of developing human resources and the group of ethnic 2 minority elementary teacher development, by that creating reasons to propose a number of possible solutions on developing the group of ethnic minority elementary teachers in the North-West region in order to meet the demand of education and training innovation.
In 1994-95 the national coordinator was addressed by a national teachers’ association with the
request to develop a model programme for kindergartens which represent an independent
educational institution within the Czech educational system. The model programme was meant to
become a practical tool for kindergartens that would help them structure their own projects. At that
time, elementary schools had no health promoting school model programme.
Schools reported the manner in which their nutrition education efforts
are coordinated by a person or group. The majority of public schools
(61 percent) have no nutrition education coordination, meaning each
teacher is responsible for his or her nutrition lessons (table 6). About
9 percent of the schools have one person within the school
coordinating nutrition education; 24 percent coordinate using a group
or committee; and about 6 percent have someone outside the school,
for example from the district, coordinate nutrition education.
